I just saw the Dr. Phil episode.
While I do think there is truth to it, I just really have a problem with how she's handling all of this. Also the fact that she referred to herself as a "public figure" almost too gleefully for my liking, just gives me pause.
Still don't like the fact that she's writing a book and totally do not believe that she went on the show so he would not be able to do anything in public. She's very much into fame and very at ease with the cameras. I'm just not buying her total cowering victim story. She enjoys playing the victim far too much, IMO.
I am also sad that Russell is not around to refute any of these claims.
Lastly, I am weary of people who claim "verbal and / or emotional abuse."
