<quoted text>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 wish I knew more about the pre-paid tuition plans in FL. Unused tuition is probably not refundable nor transferable after a certain number of years. I did find that Alex finished high school, don't know if she got a GED or regular diploma, and she did claim she was attending college classes -- who knows if that was true? And Katherine has taken college level classes, so some of it is being used.

The Stehl parents at least had high hopes and expectations for the girls, enough so, to commit to a pre-paid tuition plan for them. It's horrible that they had so much support, and yet the girls had so little ambition. There must have been even more toxic messages in their house growing up that have not been revealed on DP.

I had a former work colleague who was always bragging about his daughter's and son's high IQ test scores. Years later, neither one of his children finished high school, his daughter lives in poverty with illegitimate children, and his son still struggles with drug addiction. This was a sad case of children with all the aptitude in the world, but zero motivation to do anything with all that talent. Now I don't believe the Stehl girls have above average intelligence, but they didn't have to settle for lives of quiet desperation. Waste!

I'm going to look up Nina's and other reviewers' opinions on this book. I barely recall having heard of it, but didn't care enough about the subject to look into it then. You're right about 2003, the first Dr. Phil Family drama would not have been covered, I believe they were on in late 2003. Right?
or 2004. I looked on amazon.com . You would think they would update it or someone else would write something. It obviously didn't damage his reputation.

I think both the Dr Phil girls finished high school. Some girls today are so stupid, they go and get pregnant without a job, without a degree, and dont think about how tough it might be to be a single parent. And with all kinds of birth control available. Some people have to have a kid like it's instant gratification, no clue. Katherine's situation if everything we heard is ridiculous. I wonder if Alex is having them to spite her family. That would be awful.

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.
Yes Dr Phil bought her the truck. I believe they went to the Caymans. Don't know about the saddle.See, this what i mean in another post. Who else with a drug or family or divorce or whatever problem gets a brand new truck and gas cards to fill it? He just lavishes stuff on the least deserving people.

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!
Wisconsin. She lived there awhile. She is two years younger than me. I'll look into that. Do you know I never once watched her show. However, I thought her book list went downhill after a short while. I did not know her personally so I don't know what she was like then. I wouldn't be caught dead at a high school reunion, I wonder if she ever went?

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!"
it's already been done, this ain't our first rodeo! Maybe Oprah and Phil would like to team up.

Ok, now not only is Erin hawking the way too expensive for regular fols-Bistro Meals, she also has on one of her blogs, prices for you and your baby daddy ( or whoeverelse) to buy maternity photos that are --" tasteful,simple & beautiful " Not only are there shots of all the children, but there is a photo at the end of one of Erins group photos (the family group) that has a nice photo of Katherine and her MARRIED 'fiance' Paul. WTF?????
don't get me wrong, Erins photography skills seem to be good, judgement aweful. Take that f'ing pic down. You know he is still married to Brittany Mitchell !!!!! Why, Erin, are you still acting as though everything is honkey dorey over there??????

I really wish Brittant Mitchell Troilo would speak again on this site. Pls tell us what on earth is going on with her and her husband, especially now that the Stehls are choosing to ignore (big surprise) that he is and has been this whole time married to another woman. And what about a paternity test????

Again, Dr. Phoney (thanks for that tag line), made a fool of himself today on his show. A lady was seriously beating the crap out of her husband ( a dude in the service no less). Phils great advice at the end, after said hubby asid he had enough w/ the physical and emotional scars & was totally done w/ the wife ( who they have a child with, who's life she's threatened along w/ hitting the 3 yr.old w/ a belt ), especially he is in fear that she will kill him as she has threatened and come close to in her attacks on him .( He never fights back, he is a true man-although should have left a long time ago). Phil actually said to give her ( his abusive wife) and his staff 45 days.???????? The Soliger said that will be Feb.2nd. Phil basically made him feel like he was a pos if he didn't try 2 let HIS staff help. This odd time seemed odd 2 me, then i realized when he said FEBUARY....Advertising time!!!!!!! The first thing i thought am still thinking, is what if she goes through with her many threats, and KILLS him or him & his daughter? What will 'Ole Phil say then? God this is aweful. I am offically done "DVR'ing' his show after today. Phil is putting his 'guests' lives at risk for future ratings. Done, Done, Done !!!!!!!

Last note, unless Brittany speaks up again, or someone close to her does, we may never know wtf is going on there in this crazy ass family. Seriously, Erin has photos of not only all of Katherines kids on all of her blogs/FB/Twitter pages, but now she has added Katherine and her married man Paul Troilo. She has to know by know what the deal is. She just is turning a blind eye to it, as she has always done with bad news relating to her girls. It's terriable...Sickening actually.

Kinda wonder if Dr. Phoney is asking Erin to stop revealing new info via Twitter -- the next 'Family Update' may only be via his show -- like you and Nina observed -- in February 2012 for 'Sweeps' week.

I checked Nina's blog recently, it appears she has removed the post from Brittany Mitchell about Paul. Wonder why? Does she not believer her? That would be a mistake on Nina's part.

I searched for Paul Troilo in Florida on a free people search site and found him with related persons listed including 'Brittany Mitchell.' If that's not proof I don't what is! Brittany Mitchell and her story is for real! But Erin may never acknowledge this unless she's on camera again while on Dr. Phoney's show. After all, what 'SHOCKING!''NEW!' info would she have to reveal in an 'Update' unless it's something about this? Alex finally going to rehab? That would be great, but how likely is that?

But the time Feb. 2012 rolls around I may finally have lost interest in the well being of this entire family. Erin Stehl has created her own path for her final years of life -- being a slave to her indiscriminate baby-making slutty daughters, and she and Marty will have to deal with those consequences, except, of course, the taxpayers who will be supporting these worthless females for most of their adult lives.

That's why Alex was pitching a 'fit' over the FL Governor wanting to force welfare recipients to take a drug test to qualify for welfare $. Alex will never have the strength of character to stop smoking and snorting opiates; she will die of an overdose -- hey -- good riddance -- it's the end she deserves!

I wish a much better life for Brittany Mitchell and her son.

OK don't get me started on Dr. Philisms: but since you're temporarily home, maybe you'd like to re-visit home of Dr. Phoney's best:

- You can't change what you don't acknowledge

- Don't pee on my head and tell me it's raining

- What the hell were you thinking?

- This is going to be a changing day in your life

- The only thing worse than enduring a bad situation for one year is enduring it one year and one day

- Are you kidding me?

- This situation needs a hero!(and you ain't it pal!)

- Get a life!

- You choose the behavior, you choose the consequences (except if you're Alexandra Stehl Harrelson)

- Opinions are like rears, everyone has one

- That dog don't hunt!

- No matter how flat you make a pancake, it still has two sides

- No dog ever peed on a moving car (except a very fast dog or a very slow car like DP's ole clunker)

- Trying to run that by me is like trying to run sunrise by a rooster

- If you don't agree with me, then somewhere out there a village is missing its idiot!

- Don't make me put your head in my blender!

- You're only lonely if you're not there for you

- Get out of the road or become road kill

- I'm not going to throw you under the bus (yeah right, you're just going to drive the bus over me)

- How that's working for ya?

- Home should be a soft place to land (or the place Alex smokes or snorts opiates)

^^^^^ Jeeze, the stuff that comes out of his mouth. And people actually buy his books, and try to emulate his "lifestyle". Insane.

I just wanted to clear a couple of things up. I noticed i screwed up my previous post. Although most have probably figured it out, i thought i'd re-do anyway.

--I meant that Erin was and is posting pictures of all of ALEXANDRAs children.(not Katherine)

--By the way, Nina Does still have Brittany Mitchells posts on her site. You can find it in the comments under the part titled "Dr.Phil Family November Sweeps Update Recap" Dated Nov.7,2011. Brittany even tried to put a link to this site saying she explained more (which she did) over here.

--About Dr.Phoneys show yesterday, i mentioned about the solider whose wife was beating the crap out of him, and has said she is going to kill him a few times while in a rage. Well, i said someting about the time being "odd" twice. What i meant was the 45 days that Phoney asked the man to wait, seemed odd. That is, until said man mentioned that that would take it to Feb.2nd.

I think any other errors i made, you can probably figure it out. Sorry, it was late, i couldn't sleep and shouldn't have posted until the morning..lol

Good, glad to learn I'm wrong about that! Didn't understand why Nina would have decided to take Brittany's post off.

I saw that show too and I hope that guy doesn't actually LISTEN to Dr Putz. Get a lawyer and get the divorce already. And maybe the wife has other problems (like medical) that Dr P isn't qualified to discuss. If she is that violent and abusive why has she still got the kid? I think he's going way beyond his abilities here. What happened to bringing in professionals to give their opinions? One of these days he may get sued if he isnt careful. Re: Erin, hahaha.

Brittany did great, anyone who watched the show KNOWS anonymous in jacksonville iS katherine talking, so young dumb and full of crap that she cant hide her stupidity, even in the typed form of presenting her ideas. There has to be empathy for what brittany and herchild must feel given that Paul has gotten away with slugging into the scene and Dr Phart accepting the golden story of Katherine find some path of glory, following the 'Im done with you if you dont take this drug test', episode. Like having a baby (even with an honest guy) could save Katherine from her whiney insincree self.The intervention for Alex at which both Katherine and Paul were present made MY EYES roll! I felt like walking out and miles down the road as Katherine uglied her way through her "I FEEL statements) please agree with me that Paul need not be there, and now knowing what we know, It made a mockery of Philberts credibility and the credibility of Paul as a father, having left his Mrs and child in such a sneaky way, no wonder Phil wants a lid on this can of worms Brittany has opened. If I were Brittany Id be pulling my hair out thinkn Phil "HELPS people!??! Help me regain my credibility from this prick. Paul needs exposure, and Erin needs to Pout more, pout to death over it. Really this is not even enjoyable any more to watch fall apart. Since Braittany has opened up, we all need to get behind her and force Phil to admitt HE NEEDS TO SIDE WITH BRITTANY. IT"S THE "RIGHT" THING TO DO. Prehaps admitting you were wrong could be a changing day in your life Philbert.
I am not a blogger but how much can an honest hard working intelligent person take?
Chin up Brittany, the truth will keep you sane through these crazy times. Give a voice to her story and share it with as many people as you can on as many blogs. Don't let Dr.Phake's mingions keep patting Erin and co on the back.

Glad to see you back! Always know you have supporters here who are very intelligent people with common sense. We are not gullible followers of Dr. Phoney who buy into all his guff, nor any of the hatred flowing from Alexandra and Katherine. You have at least four fans here who believe you and want the best possible outcome for you and your son.

Dr. Philism: "It is what it is!"

Really now, Dr. Phoney, how the hell does telling a person who is seeking guidance that 'it is what it is' suppose to help them improve their life?
