Riches to Rags: “My Son's Fiancée is Ruining His Life”

Feb 13, 2015 on Syndicated at 4:00 PM


Brenda says she is desperate to break up her 37-year-old son, Chris, and his 25-year-old fiancée, Tabatha, who she has referred to as “lowdown trash” and a bad influence. She says Chris, who struggled with addiction, was back on track and working a $... (more)100,000-a-year job — until he met Tabatha two years ago. Now, Brenda says Chris is homeless, living in the woods and has been arrested twice, and she blames Tabatha. Chris says he and Tabatha are “like Romeo and Juliet” and insists nothing, including his “controlling” mother, will break them apart. Emotions run high when these future in-laws face each other on Dr. Phil’s stage. Tabatha and Chris say they are working hard to get on their feet again, and Brenda needs to butt out. Does Brenda have reason for concern? Has the couple remained sober? Plus, Brenda says she is worried Chris and Tabatha are trying to get pregnant — are they capable of caring for a child? Tune in to hear Dr. Phil’s advice for everyone involved: Is Brenda meddling too much in her son’s life? And, should Chris and Tabatha split up?
