Is that for the 4th time or is it an old one?

From memory she has:
1. Nathan (at 15)
2. Layla (to Chris)
3. Bub #3 (to Tony, born addicted to drugs and currently in the care of her mother).

Surely she is not pregnant again?

They're talking about her Mum having the baby who was addicted to drugs and how shes separated from Tony...

No not pregnant again, but that episode is an old one (baby was 5 months, would have turned 1 July 5th)

I know there are a couple new episodes where Dr Phil stages an intervention and she has massive tanty

She's a member of a "Dr Phil Family."

I haven't watched Dr Phil since DD was a baby (DD is 6 next week - so it's a while ago for me!), but I remember watching Alex and her pregnancy when I was in hospital. She fell pregnant as a 16-year-old (or something like that).

Her whole family is kind of hopeless IMO.

Oh no! I remember a show after she had Layla and how it appeared she wasn't interested in her kids.

I didn't even know about Tony.

Can't believe she's pregnant again!

She's on again today, and looks like she has partaken in a serious dose of 'medicinal pain-killers' before filming.

They are all shocking....they seem like a very well-to-do family etc.  What on EARTH went so wrong!!  I find the whole thing odd.

Someone needs to give the girl a mirror before she leaves the house!!

Orange blush anyone??


I remember seeing the very first episodes of her when she was pregnant with her first. SAd the way her life has turned out sad.gif I don't think her parents have been as helpful as they maybe could have been. The whole family seems pretty screwed up!

#14 MrsFeral247

Posted 20 July 2011 - 12:33 PM

The problem as I see it is that she is entirely resistant to any form of rehab/detox.  Even if they did somehow manage to coerce/force her to get help, it's going to be useless as she is nowhere near ready to help herself.

money doesn't buy you happiness or the tools to bring your children up correctly (I use that term as I can't find another word that fits - clearly I know there is no correct way there are plenty of ways but I think we would agree this family has gone the wrong way, they should have gotten a divorce years ago, they should have paid  attention to there youngest and there other daughter should not have had 3 children at such a young age. )

I think her Mum is very pushy.
Her Dad seems very laid back.

Its all just very sad. sad.gif

I think in part she likes the attention from Dr Phil. Which is why she keeps screwing up...in part. I know there is more to it than this.

That could be true as well.
I didn't think they were going to do anymore then she keeps popping up.

From what I last read, her 3rd baby was born addicted to drugs and her parents have custody of all three children.

Very sad.

Oh FFS, clearly thats not what I meant.  As I typed it I though I bet someone comes in and makes some comment about how rich people have messed up kids too....can I move this to "things that irk me about EB?? -  the PC police that come in and make irrelevant rightous tangential comments about some unimportant aspect of your post"

What I meant was there seems more to it than what is presented.  That it strikes me as a little odd and incongruous.

I take responsibility for this one, I brought it upon myself...

She's a ratings-grabber, that's for sure!

I really don't think that it is helpful for her anymore.  She obviously has very little regard for his opinion, and the assistance he is willing to provide.  He calls her on her BS and excuses, so she is automatically defensive.

I'm pretty sure Dr Phil organised plastic surgery and a weight loss program a while back for her.

  I think you're right.

I'm a bit confused...is Dr Phil paying for Alex to live in a hotel?

That's what I'm assuming. They haven't actually come out and said it but I'm pretty sure he put her up in the hotel when they founf out she was sleeping in the car.

I don't understand why she wouldn't just go home and live with her parents and help raise her own children.
