Dr. Phil checks back in with Christy and Stacy, two squabbling sisters who captivated viewers and lit up the message boards! Christy thinks Stacy’s husband is a pedophile, and she reported them both to Child Protective Services for physical abuse and allegedly downloading child porn. The drama continued after the show. Find out what happened when the women returned home. Then, Christy and her husband, Alan, say the previous show was one-sided and portrayed them in a negative light. Dr. Phil gives the disgruntled guests a chance to air their grievances, but will Christy be appeased? And, Stacy’s children say their aunt’s allegations have turned their lives upside down. Hear why the youngest kids say they live in constant fear. Plus, both sisters take a four-hour polygraph test to see who’s really telling the truth. Tell us what you think!

Find out what happened on the show.

THANKS DR PHIL

I am speechless regarding Christy`s actions towards her sister`s family. I think she is displacing her own childhood problems onto these innocent children. I think that is what  has driven her terrible accusations. She needs specialist counselling in order to deal with her own problems because her actions have caused terrible damage to her sisters family already. She should not be allowed any further contact with them until she is more balanced. I doubt if Stacy will ever trust her near her kids again or that they would want any relationship with her in the future!

 

Thank you Dr Phil for standing up for these children, for carrying out such a thorough investigation on their behalf and finally restoring some peace for this family. You were their `hero` when they really needed one and I hope they can at last begin to feel secure with own parents once again. Dr Phil please keep on doing such a great job for all children in need, everywhere!

 

I wish this family the very best for the future,

I haven't seen this episode yet but

Quote From: rev320

There is another view of what is startling.  We may learn that the accuser has been making false accusations; and there are severe consequences as a result.

it sounds like the accuser is jealous of the sister.

 

Last time these two were on Dr. Phil, the sister being accused said "you don't even know my kids birthdays...".  My point is, what else doesn't she know about her sister?  What drama has she created in her mind?

 

If this is how these two sisters want their 30 minutes of fame, instead of wasting so much time flinging bull, why not try to get along?  I think the sister accusing the sister's husband of child porn is (how do I say this) 10 cents short of a dollar.  Didn't she get into the husband's computer?  LOL. That alone is a privacy invasion issue.

 

I also think they both think they're right.  False accusations or not, the one sister wants attention and is stirring the pot.  She has adventure in her other than boring life.  I hope the accuser is proven a liar.  We shall see...

The results are in...

Well home girl was telling the truth, the test proves it. The sister who done the accusing I feel has issues due to her past. I hope she gets some help and this family can heal especially the children.

It's about the children

Having spent more than 25 years at both a Direct Service and Administrative level in the field of Human Services, with many years of experience working specifically in the Child Advocacy arena, I am apalled at the behavior of this accusing sister.  I am also interested in whether or not these children received services through an accredited Child Advocacy Center.  I have 100% confidence in forensic interviews conducted by a certified specialist, and am curious if these children were interviewed in such a setting.  This accusing sister is fortunate that her sister has not pursued legal action against the accusing sister for the harm she has caused her family.  Ironically, it is actually the Aunt (the accusing sister) who has 'abused' (emotionally and psychologically) these children.  The direct and inappropriate contact she had with her sister's child where she threatened that her parents were going to jail and they were going into foster care, etc. is reprehensible!  The environment of fear and terror that she instigated is inexcusable.  Dr. Phil hit the nail on the head when he drew the conclusion that the sister's childhood memories have spilled over into this horrific situation.  Unlike Dr. Phil,  I do NOT believe that the sister honestly believes the accusations she had made.  I feel that she has a deep, perhaps subconscious, agenda to seek revenge against her sister for perceived wrongs perpetrated against her in childhood.  This woman would benefit from therapy to address her anger issues.  Holding onto this anger is only hurting her, her family and has hurt her sister and her nieces/nephews horribly.

Where's daddy?

My only question or concern to this entire situation is "where was the father of these children and why was he not present on the show to defend such allegations?  If he really has nothing to hide, he should have been there in order to show his children that it is extremely important to stand up when you are right and have nothing to be ashamed of or to hide from.  Something is amiss when the wife (mother) and older children are the only representatives in a situation where allegations are against the father.  I hope and pray that these children can come through this ordeal with no scars.  As for dad...stand up old man and defend yourself...don't rely on your wife and kids to do it for you...what sort of lesson is that to them???!!!

Dr. Phil missed the important answers

The answers that were truthful about removing the computer with permission and that the sister had asked her for help.   The fact that she had not placed porn on their computer while it was in her possession.  I think that someone needs to look a little harder at this family.  The way I understood it  from these answers, is that the mom originally asked for her sister's help and thought that the computer may have contained porn or she would not have let her sister take it to check the hard drive.  I still don't know what to think about this show and who is really telling the truth!

Thanks Dr. Phil

This is comming from a mother of 3 girls, whose (EX)husband is now a registered ped.. I feel confident that those wonderful children are have been through enough!! I feel Dr. Phil and ALL the Texas agencies have done their job and came to a comforting conclusion. God bless the children!  I have been screaming for a voice to help protect children of registered-convicted peds.. to no avail. As far as the sister is concerned - get on with your life , tend to your house and make your own bed. Thanks Dr. Phil for following up with this family!!

Christy & Stacy

I've been in this situation and believe me, our problem was just like the sister who is doing the blaming and it has destroyed several relationships because it was all unfounded and our family member was a total drama queen - just trying to get attention.  It's much easier to just walk away from these types of people, change your phone number and leave no forwarding address and let it be.  If they continue to contact, report them for harrassment.  They can be evil people who need attention and will do anything to get what they want.  I believe that Stacy has been cleared by so many agencies/people that her sister needs to realize that SHE is the problem and needs to get counseling.  Of course, that doesn't always work because in my situation, our drama queen was told that the rest of us were "out to get her" and she was being mistreated.  Believe me - it's much easier to turn your back on it and forget they exist than continue to let them keep your life in an uproar!

Let it go and move on

As a sexually abused child (not by family members) I know the seriousness first hand.  I have experienced the long term effects and the life chaning event.  I feel there is enough proof and evidence to say that these children are not being physically or sexually abused.  The sister needs to mind her own business and leave them along.  Drop it and let this family heal.  The younger kids are paying for the situation and will continue to pay if she keeps dragging this on.    As a law enforcement officer you learn to tell by a persons actions, body language, choice of words the type of person they are.   The crazy sister showed her true colors yet again.   While the other was curtious, and a lot calmer than I would have been given the accusations towards my family.

I agree with you, and I also think that Christy needs to get a life,get into therapy, find a hobby, do something besides tear her sisters world apart.  She is a very angry, bitter woman, if she dosent get over it she will die an angry bitter old woman.   These two sisters should never have anything to do with each other ever!   Christy get the help you need and stop blaming your sister for all your short comings!
