STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Dr. Phil visited the KCAL 9 studios Wednesday to talk about some exciting episodes of his hit show coming up in February.
Here is a look at what is coming up on Dr. Phil in the coming weeks:
The sweep kicks off Thursday with sixteen-year-old identical twins, Dallas and Drew, are alike in many ways, from their appearance to their interests and personalities. Their parents say they also share explosive tempers and become so violent that they fear someone will end up seriously hurt, or even dead. Can Dr. Phil help set these twins straight?
Then on Friday, it’s the return of the DR. PHIL Family… It’s been six months since Dr. Phil told Alexandra he would no longer speak to her until she checked herself into rehab for what he believed was an addiction to prescription pain pills. After so many ups and downs over the years, is she finally ready to admit she needs help? And once there, will she stay?
And on Monday, it’s a story ripped from the headlines: ten month old baby Lisa disappeared from her home on October 4, 2011, and hasn’t been seen since. In a DR. PHIL EXCLUSIVE, her distraught parents, joined by their attorney, Joe Tacopina, break their silence.
Tuesday’s show, also an EXCLUSIVE, focuses on a crime that shocked the world: an 8-year-old girl found emaciated and close to death, locked in a pitch black, human waste-filled closet by her parents for years. When Lauren was found in June 2001, she weighed a mere 25 pounds and was only 3 feet tall. Now 18-years-old, Lauren, too, breaks her silence about her horrifying ordeal. Lauren’s motivation for speaking out now is to help other children who are being abused. And for the first time since her rescue, Lauren will reunite with the people who freed her.
The remainder of the week, we’ll explore the teen pregnancy crisis in America, hear from teen idol-turned-superstar Donny Osmond, and a couple whose marriage hangs in the balance over a controlling mother-in-law.
Dr. Phil airs Monday – Friday at 3 p.m. on CBS2 and at 7 p.m. on KCAL9.
