Even if you don't watch the show, you've probably still heard about the craziest guests on Dr. Phil. The show has become synonymous with strange people sharing their bizarre stories with the world, most of the time presenting their lives in a brash and unashamed way, making excuses for their actions at every turn. Even though the show tends to be cringe-worthy, it's easy to be completely sucked into the wild ride that is the Dr. Phil show.
The Dr. Phil episodes with the craziest guests make for the sort of train-crash TV-watching only the most disciplined can turn away form. For those who would rather not sit through entire episodes of Dr. Phil, its understandable. Thus, here's a list of the wildest Dr. Phil guests in all their mind-boggling glory.
Continue on and vote up the craziest things guests have told Dr. Phil.
The Woman Who Encouraged Her Daughter To Get Plastic Surgery And Have Lots Of Sex
Dr. Phil guest Marianne was shocked when her husband confessed that he had gone to a strip club on a couple of occasions fifteen years previous. Ever since the confession, Marianne has been obsessed with not only her own looks but her daughter Miranda's as well. Miranda took her mom to the Dr. Phil show because ever since her husband's confession, Marianne has done everything she can to look like a stripper and encourages the same from her 19-year-old daughter, Miranda. Marianne got a lower back tattoo, breast implants, and installed a stripper pole in her house.
Marianne also talked Miranda into getting breast implants, but she was not happy with Miranda's size preference at the doctor's office, telling her to go bigger and bigger. Marianne explained to Miranda that large breasts and a lot of sex are what men are into and that they do not care how educated a woman is.
A Girl (Supposedly) Pregnant With Baby Jesus
One guest who has been featured multiple times on Dr. Phil is a teen girl named Haley (her last name has not been released). Haley was adamant that she was nine months pregnant, despite pregnancy tests and doctors telling her otherwise. What's more, Haley confidently has stated that she was giving birth to baby Jesus.
Dr. Phil arranged for Haley to get an ultrasound, which revealed that she was not with child. Of course, that didn't get in the way of Haley still believing herself to be pregnant. Of course, along with her claim to be carrying Baby Jesus, Haley had plenty of other exciting thoughts and beliefs. She thought rapper Eminem was her father. She also claimed to be a contestant on American Idol. Her family (and common sense) refuted both statements.
Haley ended up going to a treatment facility courtesy of Dr. Phil, but the experience didn't seem to help her much. She did finally come clean about the pregnancy on another episode she was featured on stating that she just had stomach gas but that she's still grieving over the situation.
The Woman Who Pretended To Have Cancer To Make Money
Jessica was a guest on Dr. Phil who was desperate to know why her mother Patricia was lying to people about having cancer. While Patricia did have brain surgery at one time, she'd never had cancer. Patricia would make local TV appearances stating that she had stage three brain cancer. In addition to cancer, Patricia claimed to have survived at least 17 strokes. She used her fake illness to scam people out of money in fundraisers.
Making matters worse is that Patricia didn't even use the money she scammed out of people to improve on her life. The home where she, her younger son, and her pets lived was a disaster. The dog was found to have an untreated eye infection that left him unable to open his eye.
The Woman Who Said Men Hit Women Because They Love Them
19-year-old Romina Garcia was invited to the Dr. Phil show after a video she made and posted online went viral. The reason for the video's popularity? Garcia was defending abuse. The video, which features Garcia with a black eye, was made so Garcia could explain that being hit by her boyfriend means that he must really love her because he would risk going to jail by being violent toward her.
There were many rumors that Garcia overdosed from drugs and died shortly before her 20th birthday, but there have been no official reports of her death. However, celebrities like Kylie Jenner did share condolences online.
