"Identical Twins Starving to Death: Who’s to Blame?"
ALL-NEW! Identical 16-year-old twins Taylor and Tricia both say they may only have a few months to live due to their deadly “identical” eating disorder. The twins say in order to continue to stay as thin as possible, they do everything identically, including counting the 12 crackers they allow themselves to eat. They say their need to look identical fuels their disease because neither wants to be known as the “fatter twin.” Their mother, Vicky, says she thought her daughters’ dire condition would unite her and the twins’ father, Robert, but says it has done the opposite. Robert says he blames Vicky in large part for their daughters’ eating disorder because he claims it was a result of Vicky having had an affair -- which she denies -- and “breaking up their marriage.” Robert says he’s embarrassed to be seen in public with the twins because they look like “toothpicks,” and admits he has called them both horrible names out of frustration. Can Dr. Phil get these two parents on the same page in order to save Tricia and Taylor’s lives? Plus, the man Vicky is accused of leaving her marriage for confronts Robert about the way he treats the twins. It’s an emotional Dr. Phil you cannot miss.

"My Sister Would Rather Be with Her Homeless Boyfriend in a Tent than with Her Kids"
ALL-NEW! Grace claims her older sister, Katie, is an out-of-control and neglectful mother who would rather spend time with her homeless boyfriend, Doug, than her two kids. Grace, her mother Tara, and Katie’s ex-husband Ray say they have seen what they call Katie’s erratic and unsafe behavior, and Grace and Tara say they are ready to confront Katie once and for all. Grace, Tara, and Ray have all considered legal action against Katie which could result in her losing any custody of her 6-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son if she does not begin to, as they say, properly take care of herself and her kids. Katie denies their claims and says she is a hard-working mother who is trying her best to take care of her children.
