‘Dr. Phil Show’ Episode Guide (April 29): Wife Confronts Husband with Mistress Evidence

The following is a synopsis of today’s episode of CBS Television Distribution’s “Dr. Phil Show.” To watch, be sure to check local listings for the time period in your market.

Dr. Phil offers to help a couple salvage their marriage in what seems to resemble a real-life version of the new Cameron Diaz movie, “The Other Woman.” Anna says her husband of three years, Pablo, is a cheater who claims he only strayed once — but she says she has proof that he’s lying and is ready to confront him with the evidence: his alleged mistresses, Amanda and Bernice.

Pablo insists he has been faithful since his one-time affair and says Anna needs to stop the accusations and trust him — or else he’s ready for a divorce. Why does he say Anna is to blame for his infidelity?

And why, despite her husband’s admission, does Anna say she still wants to fix their marriage? Tensions run high when all three women face Pablo on Dr. Phil’s stage. How will he react? And, what message do Amanda and Bernice have for Pablo? Dr. Phil enlists the help of Bishop T.D. Jakes, author of the new book, Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive, to offer the couple advice for moving forward. Can this marriage be saved?

Originally launched in the fall of 2002 to the highest ratings of any new syndicated show since the launch of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” 16 years prior, “Dr. Phil” is enjoyed by millions of viewers nationally in 212 markets, covering 100 percent of the country.Additionally, “Dr. Phil” is licensed to nearly 50 territories and countries worldwide.

McGraw’s success stems from his signature “get real” approach to helping his guests solve their problems, stripping through their emotional clutter, helping them to get down to the bare bones of their issues and giving them the challenge they need to move ahead. McGraw champions those who suffer from such silent epidemics as domestic violence, child abuse, depression, racism, substance abuse and other health issues that are prevalent in society, but go largely undiscussed by their victims.

While McGraw will continue with the topics and themes that have made the show number one, he will introduce some tech new features to the show.This season, a select group of viewers will be able to watch the show’s taping and contribute with real-time tweets, instant comments and even talk-back with the host.

Emmy-Award winning Executive Producer Carla Pennington has been with “Dr. Phil” since its first season, as has Co-Executive Producer Angie Kraus. “Dr. Phil” was created by Harpo Productions, is produced by Peteski Productions in association with CBS Television Distribution and is distributed by CBS Television Distribution, a unit of CBS Corp.
