Dr. Phil: Father Worries About Lying Daughters
Leanna and Erica were arrested for underage stripping, and their father, Don, does not entirely believe their accounts of what happened the night they were arrested. Don is a single father with three daughters, and he was livid when he heard that two of them were stripping. Like any good father, Don would have never condoned with daughter’ stripping had he known, but given how good he says they have gotten at lying, he never knew it was happening.
Don thinks Leanna and Erica both have a shoplifting problem. Instead of asking him for clothes they would like, they just lift them out of the store. They also both have suspended licenses, but continue to drive behind Don’s back anyways. He doesn’t want to call the police on them because he thinks they are already in enough trouble, but given that they both smoke marijuana and drink, he is at his wit’s end with his lying daughters. More than anything, Don is afraid that they will end up hurt or dead somewhere. Don thinks that Leanna and Erica need to own up to their own mistakes, instead of making excuses.
Dr. Phil: Sisters’ Judgement Is Putting Them In Harm’s Way
Above all else, Dr. Phil wanted Leanna and Erica to know that their judgement could be putting them in harm’s way. They felt as if they were being attacked, but it really came down to everyone being extremely worried for their safety. While Leanna and Erica were arguing about not technically being in a car with a registered offended, but sitting outside of it, Dr. Phil said they were ignoring the fact that they were in the vicinity of one, one that could have easily taken them off somewhere, and that would have been the end of it.
Dr. Phil: Leanna And Erica Set The Record Straight
Dr. Phil gave Leanna and Erica the floor so that they can tell their side of the story, the one they think the media twisted. Leanna wanted to say that the things in the paper, like the lie that she was stripping for several months before she was 18. She also did not think it was just that she was put in jail for stealing the boots if Erica was caught on camera with them. She also wanted to make it clear that she did not have her little sister or her friend with her when she was standing outside the car of the registered offender.
What made the sisters the most upset was all of the bullying they were being subjected to as a result of the mistake.
