I do feel a bit for Erin, as she is raising Alexs' kids at a time in her life when she should be retired and enjoying life with her husband and their animals/farm. She easily could have let the state step in and have the kids ( except Nathan, who i believe the father has main custody & stepped up fully ),but she took them in, with the expectation that Alex would get some materinal instintcs, turn her life around and take over care for her own children.
Agree with you! But I also see the point Greenwitch makes -- Erin has to stop playing the martyr, sacrificing her health and sanity to care for children Alex simply squirts and abandons. If Alex has another baby I hope Erin doesn't even see it.

The million dollar question is.... Did she (Erin) know any of this info (Paul being married-and still is-to Brittany, he sells weed for a living, baby 'Paul' most likely is from another man and not THE Paul, Katherine tried to get food stamps scamming and using Brittany & her & Pauls true child in trying to do so, Paul tried to get Brittany to pay him child support), on and on.....
I am kind of leaning towards no, or not all of it. Because Erin was so chatty on her twitter, Facebook and even DP's message board. Now everything has pretty much gone silent.
I hope Brittany comes back on and clears some lingering questons up.
That's my thought too; Erin only knew what Katherine told her. Katherine has probably learned from watching Alex -- how to use the available social services income Florida offers -- food stamps, probably housing subsidies, medicaid, who knows what else? But she needed a child living with her in order to successfully lay claim to these benefits.

Erin reminds me of the reputation Kathy Lee Gifford use to have -- bragging about her perfect family until some sordid news stories got out. I truly believe that Alex wanted her children with her in order to get her paws on welfare $, food stamps, housing subsidies, and child support money from Nathan's and Leilah's dads, as well as extra money and support her parents would have provided. Alex didn't want the children but she did want the money to pay for her pills; wonder if she even thought about feeding, clothing and taking care of her children.

Thank You to ~ Topix and Freedom of Speach, here at least....lol
Isn't this shameful! Dr. Phil willfully covering up for his 'Family' so they won't look bad. NEWS FLASH Dr. Phil -- they already look bad -- how is the truth going to hurt?

To Bobbleheadhere, Greenwitch, and Brittany --

I just remembered that Erin said on Dr. Phil's show that when she and Marty first learned from Katherine about her pregnancy they were very angry, but then met Paul and believed he was her fiance and would be there for her and the baby. I wonder if this news that Paul is still married has hit them both so hard that the Stehls are too angry to comment.

You didn't see me post I thought they were smart, or even have any common sense, did you, heh?
<quoted text> Oh, I thought you thought they were Nobel Prize winning geniuses :)
I would love to see the 'Agreement(contract)' signed by these folks and the Dr. Phil show. What was the original agreement? The girls were minors in 2003, so if they were asked to sign anything -- would that have been valid? Is it still valid today or do they have to re-sign every year?
It sounds like you truly believe Alex is 'playing this.' I'm not sure she isn't simply an incredibly stubborn, stupid, addict who hates her mother so much she refuses to choose any solution with which her mother is on board. Now that speaks volumes to her stupidity.
Maybe some brave soul could just shoot her with a dart gun from a distance, and haul her away to rehab. Florida is so messed up they probably don't have the police power to save Alex from a forced 'intervention.' Of course, then Alex would need to live somewhere else far away or she'd be corrupted all over again by her old connections. Hey, just a thought...
No, I agree about Alex but I also think she is all wrapped up in what's in it for her. She could be a sociopath, but we wont know for sure. Why did Phil dump Katherine and not Alex and why is he now seeming to play them off against each other? Must be something in it for him.

OMG! I had a post completely disappear! Did 'Anonymous' report the post as 'abusive?' That would really suck!

The post was about Erin saying on the last Dr. Phil episode that she and Marty at first were angry when they heard from Katherine about her pregnancy, then they met Paul and liked him. Now Erin's 'gone dark' and is not answering questions about Paul. That's why I believe all this info about Paul already being married, with a criminal record, an existing son, was not known to her and Marty at the time the episode was taped.

Nah, it's your computer. Mine drops stuff all the time on this site, email, comments, others. May be Windows 7, sometimes I can recover the text, sometimes not. Pi$$es me off. Erin probably found out all that. They tell you if they delete. They dropped one of mine for offensive language.

I too have been very curious about what is in the agreement/contract that has been signed by all of the "DP Family". If you noticed in the past, Erin was extremely careful not to say anything that would tip off people BEFORE the certain episode aired. it wierded me out at first, and then i put it together & figured it had to be something to do with a contract w/ Phils show. But you have a really good comment about the girls being underage when the cameras started tailing them around. Wonder if they have a new contract each year, or what? And what is the "payout" for being on the show? Say what you will, but for the money they have raked in for Dr. Phil and his show, i really,really hope at least the children have a nice college fund set up, or even that and some money ( only allowed to touch it when they turn 40 or so, in case the Stehl immaturity gene is in them ).
I hate to admit this, but i just finished watching (dvr) his show from today-Dr. Phil. anyone else notice how he pulled the one guy out (the one he humilated in front of his staff) and Phil was really pissed that the guest mentioned that another guest on the show was there for "ratings" ! I doubled over on that one.

Someone from his (DP) staff must be watching this site or Ninas ( Ninaspetpeeves.com ) and relaying it back to Phil. The timing is just too close from us talking about it. Yet the more i look at shows and the dates, Nina really hit it out of the park. November, July, and May i think were the main months for ratings & advertising money. And sure enough, those months are the ones that he has the ones w/ the Stehls. Just read what Nina wrote about her own little blog blowing up after she happened to mention alexandra. A few more blogs after that and her number of hits were insane, and this by her own admission is without promoting Alex. Just imagine what someone with a vested interest in her/them (Stehls) is making in advertising money..??.. WOW . I never thought about this before, but i have a whole new outlok on things now.

Not to get off topic too much, but i read Ninas reviews of the unauthorized biography of Dr. Phil, and needless to say, many things about him and his show are making sence now. I will definately ck the local library to see if they have a copy,i think she said it came out in '04. If not, i will buy it. I really hope the Authors take Ninas ( & probably many others) & re-release it with so many new topics added. Remember how he tried to get involved in the Brittney Spears drama before she was carted of on a psych hold at the Cali hospital? Almost forgot bout that one (thanks Nina)

Ok, back to the topic at hand..... Slayer, my computer has dropped posts i've hit send, and i was maddddddddd. It only happens to the long posts!(LOL). Glad to hear from Greenwitch that this site will inform you if they drop it and why. I did not know that.

Oh, and the comment about hitting Alex w/ a tranqulizer dart and carting her off to rehab had me laughing out loud, mostly because i had a visual image..... Too funny. Although, that would never happen, i really needed a serious laugh & that did it for me. Thanks again.

Well a last comment, although i stand by what i said about Erin in my latest post, I do agree that there is sooooo much more in that department. Actually, you'd probably have to start a new thread to go over the emotional baggage and raising of her daughters compaired to how they have turned out so far. There is a whole lot of crazy there, and i knew there was not room or time to even try to open that door. But i am noy blind or deaf, and am aware that in the raising of her girls, Erin and Marty have/had screwed up royally.

P.S.-I appoligize 4 typos, i have to go & don't have time to proof read.

The official line is that the Dr. Phoney show does NOT pay its guests. For the first Dr. Phil Family, the Stehls, they got expensive gifts, vacation trips, surgical procedures (Erin), free counseling services, many first-class airfare trips to Los Angeles, manicures/pedicures, makeup and hair stylists, anything they demanded, expensive hotels & meals, best medical services $ can buy for Alex & Katherine -- plus, lots of free publicity!

The Stehl parents mentioned on an early season that they had already set up a pre-paid tuition plan for both daughters, I believe their plan was for in-state colleges.

Erin has used her 'fame' to shill for products and services, if you read her twitter you've probably seen numerous references to BistroMD -- healthy meals delivered to your door. I looked at their web site, the food looks great but is very expensive.

I don't watch Dr. Phil any more unless it's a topic I have an intense interest in. I'll check out his web site for the week's shows on Mondays. Just can't stomach him any more than that.

I had already found Nina's blog before you mentioned it here. While she had great insights, she still didn't seem to have any specific or special knowledge about the situation than other viewers, not like someone who knows the entire family and is close to them.

Putting the surname, Stehl, in posts when I started, was important to attract anyone who might know them personally onto this Topix thread. Their surname was initially very had to find, since Dr. Phil's show never released it on air. All I knew was they lived in Florida, and I keep looking for FL news stories involving Dr. Phil until I found it. I believe that's why we don't have more people finding us -- they don't to look for the name 'Stehl.'

Since Dr. Phil McGraw is a protege of Oprah Winfrey who launched his show, it's an easy assumption that money is the top priority. I dislike Oprah much more than DP, regardless of her 'public persona' that woman is the most money hungry PoS on earth. That said, I'd put nothing past either of them for getting every dollar they can -- in any way they can!

Too bad Greenwitch is right -- they don't really want to 'save' Alex, or else some drastic measures would have already been taken. Alex is Dr. Phil's greatest, longest running, drama! Why screw up a good thing?

More true words have not been posted, Erin is no perfect mom. She is hypercritical, emotionally detached, and so religious that she refused to see Alex was sexual and needed to be on birth control. And still doesn't seem to 'get' that she needs significant improvement.

"I had already found Nina's blog before you mentioned it here. While she had great insights, she still didn't seem to have any specific or special knowledge about the situation than other viewers, not like someone who knows the entire family and is close to them. "
***Sorry there Slayer, I know i saw her site somewhere, i hop all over the internet, it easily could have been from one of your posts. I didn't mean yo swipe the credit, not at all, just wanted other people to find it also.

Instead of having everyone re-read what you posted above, i will try to just summerize.

I had wondered for the longest time what the "Dr. Phil Family" last name was. It seemed odd that noone would mention it. Now we know why. There was no way for anyone to check out the facts or information about the shows on their family unless you knew them. There are and were some posts here and there on vague blogs, but the problem obviously was these sites with their last name were very hard to find. I am glad for the information you have shared in reguards to posting full names (like what you told Brittnay Mitchell-Triolo) and making it easier for people to get the facts correctly that way.
Now, I by no means think it is right to throw peoples real names out there (and i am not AT ALL suggesting anyone has done this, so pls. don't read this as if i mean that), but when you are all over an International show (DP), then i think it's fair game for people to know your true identity.

As for Brittany, that was up to her. But i am glad she did post, and you see why when reading her posts. She was getting blasted and not only thrown under the bus, but run over by it. It takes a lot of balls to say who you are and tell your side of the story (especially private family things). But i think that she had no other choice. It was extremely obvious that the "Anonymous in Jacksonville" post was from someone in the Stehl camp. Brittnay saw straight away that it was indeed Katherine posting. And in turn felt at that point, unless she spoke up, noone would know what the truth was/is.

And lastly, i totally forgot that DP says he doesn't "Pay" guests. Although that "Donation" to Casey Anthonys parents fund ( for them being on his show), was a joke. That was an obvious payout. Why not "Donate" money to a missing childrens fund that the Anthonys could not get their hands on????
But you did make good points in him bartering instead of outright paying the Stehl family. Gas cards, face lift for Erin, etc, etc, etc. One tiny last thing (promise..lol). I wonder if Erin gets a kick back on that Bistro meal plan she hawks/talks about all the time.?. Or maybe she gets it for free as long as she keeps promoting it. Another good point Slayer.
Now i must go....

First Alex got into trouble by committing assault and battery on young teenage girl in (I believe) St. Augustine, FL, knocking some of the girl's teeth out. On the DP show, she claimed it was a case of mistaken identity, but that's not what the local news story wrote; the witnesses knew her well by having seen her on TV.

Then, Katherine was arrested for making a false report to police and trying to cover up a big theft by her boyfriend, possibly even being involved with the theft. So both these girls seem to be have been in legal trouble since teens. That's how their names got out in the first place. The local news stories identified them as former guests of the Dr. Phil show. If they had wanted to stay anonymous, it was up to them to stay out of trouble.

Yes, Brittany was an innocent bystander. If her husband had any integrity, he would have asked her for a divorce before moving in with another woman. If I was in her shoes I would have done at least as much as she has.

Hey, I posted some angry stuff about this 'donation' under another Dr. Phil thread about the Anthonys. Someone posted a web link to a very credible story that the donation was $500,000! My guess had been approximately $50,000 -- never imagined it was half a million!!!

Did you see the show about 'Erin's Big Reveal!'-- after her face lift? Erin had been on a diet to lose weight for that show. She had used BistroMD and had lost many pounds. So she had already gotten their meals free from Dr. Phil's show. I'm guessing she still gets the meals either for free or a big discount for promoting them. If you have lots of extra money, and don't know how, or don't have time to cook, this is a good alternative.

If Phill has done nothing else he has got people interested in Alexandra. They go looking for sites about her and tweets. There is something weird going on with this family on the show. With everybody else he's so upright and moral...almost too good to be true.

That is BS. They dont pay the guests in cash, but they receive all kinds of benefits and services free and gifts. Maybe the Stehls get more than others. And the show must pay travel, meals and lodging for everyone. Tuition is a waste for these girls. Don't we mean a college fund for all these kids who didn't ask to be born?

I looked up that book on Dr Phil too, think it was copyrighted 2003. I'd like to see something more recent. That was too early to have much if anything about the family.

I dislike Oprah much more than DP, regardless of her 'public persona' that woman is the most money hungry PoS on earth. That said, I'd put nothing past either of them for getting every dollar they can -- in any way they can!

Too bad Greenwitch is right -- they don't really want to 'save' Alex, or else some drastic measures would have already been taken. Alex is Dr. Phil's greatest, longest running, drama! Why screw up a good thing?
<quoted text>
More true words have not been posted, Erin is no perfect mom. She is hypercritical, emotionally detached, and so religious that she refused to see Alex was sexual and needed to be on birth control. And still doesn't seem to 'get' that she needs significant improvement.
I'm home on temporary disability so I watch if I'm going insane with boredom. He is definitely a split personality, one way with the family and one way with other people. Oprah, ha ha! We were at the same high school at the same time. We didn't know each other but I did see her in the halls between classes. If you think I'm making this up I can try to scan her picture out of the senior yearbook. Sorry this is off topic. Wonder how Oprah would deal with Alex.

Oprah is the biggest phony going. So glad I don't hear her annoying voice anymore. Please post her picture, I need a good laugh.
Didn't Dr Phil buy Alexandra that truck? And a fancy saddle for Katherine. And sent them on a trip to a beach, I forget which island, but Alexandra spent all her time flirting with strange guys.

You have a good memory -- Dr. Phoney sent Alex, Katherine, and Erin to the Cayman Islands -- no small expense, because Alex said her ambition was to a Marine Biologist! Ha! Alex probably thought that sounded impressive but had no idea what a Marine Biologist even did. Maybe other than get to wear a bikini she didn't care.

I recall Erin being frantic when she saw Alex getting very cozy with a boy she just met, and calling her a 'whore.' While I don't think I would have gone that far, I would have also been alarmed at seeing my daughter who had recently given birth to an out-of-wedlock baby appearing about to have sex with a strange guy in the ocean.

The expensive truck is, at least, still being used, even if not by Alex, who had her driver's license suspended. And I wonder if Katherine is still riding at her parents' place?

Glad to hear someone else agrees with me about Oprah (Orca!) I got sick of her trying to convince silly stupid women that her judgement was always superior to theirs -- that they just stop listening to their own common sense and buy whatever she tells them to buy. Horrors!

OMG!!! That's great!!! Was this in Mississippi or after she had moved from there? Did anyone ever describe her as a bossy, know-it-all as she is today? You could get a Twitter account and post a Twitpic!

After I heard that Oprah's new network OWN, was not doing well & had horrible ratings, I suggested on here that Oprah have a reality show featuring Alexandra Stehl Harrelson entitled: Saving Alexandra! We could all watch in horror as Alex spirals downward into an abyss of drugs, prostitution, a parade of former prison inmate boyfriends, fist fights with their girlfriends, more pregnancy surprises,(omg - how did that happen?), and other constant bad decisions which she blames entirely on her mother.

Maybe there could be a few cameos by Dr. Phil shaking his head while saying "It is, what it is!"
