As you may already know, Dr Phil debuted on September 16, 2002.
On the show, Dr Phil McGraw offers advice in the form of "life strategies" from his life experience as a clinical and forensic psychologist, although McGraw's advice and methods have drawn criticism from some fellow psychotherapists as well as from some laymen.
McGraw's critics regard advice given by him to be at best simplistic, and at worst, ineffective.

This came after she found out that her husband went to a strip club and, instead of brushing it off and moving on with her life, she spent the rest of her life trying to look like a stripper. She even went as far as teaching her daughter that all men want is big boobs and sex, ultimately encouraging her daughter to get breast implants.
However it doesn't end there, the mother-of-one even installed a stripper pole in the house...
