Dr Phil: Shot In The Face - Victim Confronts Attacker 20 Years Later

On April 29, Dr Phil is bringing two people together for the first time in 20 years. If you had been shot in the face, would you want to see your attacker?


A student working in a grocery store was shot in the face during a robbery 21 years ago. Her assailant used a sawed-off shotgun. That moment has changed both women’s lives forever, but they have never come face to face since that day…until now.

Dr Phil is good at picking people’s emotional scabs, and in his defense, he wouldn’t be able to do it if people didn’t line up and agree to come to his show. Every time I think he is prodding too much or exploring a subject unworthy of television, I remember that everyone is a willing participant.

“I think I’m a victim as well,” says the attacker who shot a store clerk in the face, leaving her disfigured.


If you were on the fence about whether you could meet the person who shot you in the face, I might guess that knowing they would say something like that would not make you more interested in the reunion.

“Every day that I look in the mirror, I’m reminded of what she did to me,” the victim said. This should be an interesting conversation, if nothing else.

If I did shoot someone in the face, I might be apologetic and not go on TV claiming it was not my fault. Even if it wasn’t the attacker’s fault, it most certainly was not the victim’s fault, unless there is a twist Dr Phil is not telling us about in the promo.

I guess that element of surprise is how they get you to tune in. Dr Phil is new on Monday, April 29 2013.
