A New Day

She says she is prepared to get honest with Dr. Phil about the seriousness of her addiction — from her dangerous lifestyle to what she did to get drugs.

Plus, Alexandra reveals how she says she manipulated the court system and opens up about a letter she wrote to her son. Is she ready to return home and be a mom?

“That sends chills down my spine."
