Dr Phil told Amanda that she doesn’t have all of the symptoms of bipolar disorder. He doesn’t know who diagnosed Amanda, but she hasn’t displayed any of the symptoms. In fact, she might have bipolar disorder, but he believes that she is blowing things out of proportion.
The sisters began to scream, cry, and deny hurting each other. Amanda said her mom held her down while her sister kicked her in the stomach. Rianne kept yelling, “Well, then where are the bruises?” Amanda doesn’t think Rianne is telling the truth.
The sisters were clearly emotional. She said she was scared, but Dr Phil assured her he was on her side. The side of help. He told Rianne that if she knows her sister has a mental illness, Rianne’s behavior to her sister is not right. Whether Amanda is lying or not, Rianne is being aggressive and abusive.
