“Why did you spend all your money as a B actress on cocaine and admit to it?” Kevin (her brother)asks.

“Why were you a heroin addict for years and on acid? Why?” Maureen counters.

So wrong....

I'm now watching the tape from earlier today. I'll summarize a bit, but I'm only paying 75% attention.

Maureen has contacted Dr. Phil because she has a family situation that is concerning her very much.

She has a brother (call him Brother 1 until I catch his name) - who has something or the other wrong with him, I missed exactly what. When they were little, Brother 1 was always able to get their parents to do whatever he wanted them to do. Their father is now living with Brother 1.

She has another brother too (Brother 2, for now). Both Maureen and Brother 2 are worried because Brother 1 and their father have stopped communicating with them, locked up the house, and say that Maureen is crazy and needs help.

Maureen is very upset about all of this, using a lot of dramatic language about her heart, etc. Dr. Phil saw some video, and he told Maureen that based on what he saw, she has every right to be VERY concerned. :eek: And he is going to tell her exactly what she needs to do.

Yeah, this was an amazing show. I feel so bad for Maureen. I really believe that she is not at fault with this. All of the WILD and EMPTY threats that her brother and father make towards her always seem to come at times when they are cornered with a question that they can not asnwere. :mad: I mean yeah, everyone knows that Maureen had her problems with cocaine from 22-25 ( or so ) ...they are trying to use that against her. She also had an easting distorder. The shit seemed to have hit the fan when her mother passed away in 2004. :sad: I think the brother is after her dads money. :rolleyes:

The father needs help ! Maureen just touched his arm and he turned it into that big thing stating "she wouldn't let go of my arm, I said 'Maureen get off me!'" and all that bogus shit...hello!!...didn't he see the cameras recording that ENTIRE incident?! Then the father and brother had the nerve to try and get a restraining order because of the "incident". Thank god the judge TURNED IT DOWN!

OMG that was so bizarre when Maureen found them at the mall and the conversation they had. :eek: :eek:

Second and third segments...

Dr. Phil had used his private detective to find Maureen's father and Brother 1 (Kevin). They locate the pair about to go to a mall. Maureen hops out of the car and runs up to them, and the conversation is captured on camera.

Maureen keeps asking simple and sensible questions like, "Why can't I see you?", and the two of them (Father and Kevin) answer each question by accusing her of all kinds of things like committing perjury, having a citation, hiding things, lying to them, using drugs, trying to drug the father, pour cocaine down Kevin's throat, threatening them, stealing the father's retirement fund, being paniced, etc. And they laugh together, mocking her. She can't get any answers, and they change the subject to another accusation.

It is very bizarre. The Father/Kevin seem like they are out of their minds.

Yeah, but I think there is something wrong with Kevin too. It's not all an intentional plot, he could be schizophrenic. I see that Dr. Phil is not going down that path - yet - but I think it is part of the equation.

4th segment.

Dr, Phil has identified the situation, as he sees it, and is explaining it to Maureen and Brother 2 (Michael).

Kevin has set himself up as the power fugure, the cult leader, and has control over the Father. The Father is extremely isolated and is being fed a program of information. There is a name for this phenomenon. Dr. Phil is very suspicious about the situation, and would probably call it elder abuse.

Both Maureen and Michael would like all of them to talk with Dr. Phil.

Next segment -

Dr. Phil is telling Maureen that she has to do something about it, but it is not without risk, because pushing it will make something happen. She should speak to her lawyer, and Dr. Phil would be happy to tell her lawyer what he thinks is going on. Maureen is very happy that Dr. Phil will speak to her lawyer too.

Now there has been a dramatic twist to the case. The Father has requested a Restraining Order against Maureen, saying that when she was talking to him at the mall she grabbed his arm and would not let go, and she has a drug problem and mental problems. (The tape show that she touched his arm for about one second, and the Father made a big deal about nothing.)

Dr. Phil has tried to contact the Father/Kevin to appear on the show but they (haven't responded or said no).

The judge ruled in Maureen's favor.

Dr. Phil will follow this story... this is not over!

Next step - Dr. Phil will work with Maureen and Michael as the thing unfolds. They all want everybody to come sit down with Dr. Phil.

And that's all folks!!! For now.

I actually do think it will help.

For one, now the Father and Kevin cannot do whatever they do in secret... it's documented and in the open, so they will be forced into accountability. And two, Dr. Phil will provide the resources for both sides to get whatever needs to change changed - legal, psychological, financial, and so on.

A lot of people don't have the know-how and resources to fix this type of situation on their own. Of course the cost is, like you said, airing it out for the whole nation. But if you either don't care, or accept the tradeoff, it is worth it.

No you won't, 'cause your wife is too smart for that.

She'd tape a pic of Nastya to the ceiling over your bed and you wouldn't notice if a bomb went off. Or if the lameass Packers managed to beat the Vikings, let alone what she and the boys were up to.

I showed my post to my wife and she looked at me like I'd just shit my pants on purpose. Then I showed her your response. She laughed and said, "cute". So.....why the hell am I still married and you're divorced? Life is perplexing.

Let's get Nastya on the show--and watch him be reduced to a quivering, blubbering mass as he tries to figure out what's going on in her head.
