(dramatic music) For more than 10 years, this place has just been horrific. These clothes have been here for years. This Christmas tree has been up for probably about four or five years. Here’s a piece of equipment that doesn’t get used often around our house. See where the cat’s been scratching. Here and it’s the worst back here. This is how their laundry gets done. They’ll wash ’em or leave ’em dirty and put ’em in the baskets instead of hanging ’em up. This has been sitting right here for a year and that’s beach towels. Christy’s door is locked. You would think that a tornado came through there. As messy as this whole table looks, and you know it’s been there for a while ’cause there’s Halloween stuff. We’re going into the kitchen now. We have an ant problem because of all the food that’s just left around. My youngest daughter, she made her own birthday cake weeks ago and the pan’s still here. Most of these dishes are months ago. You see ’em stacked up. This island sink has a bowl in there and the stuff is moldy and mildew. If you look in this drawer right here, there’s never any silverware in here. It’s all dirty. We have to eat off paper plates because regular plates aren’t washed. We’re in my youngest daughter’s room. Trash, strained floor. She can’t even get to the bathroom. All these bags came from my daughter’s room within the last couple days ’cause she knew that Dr. Phil’s show was coming here. My oldest daughter’s room. There’s food everywhere. This is another pig sty. It’s really depressing to see all this in such a beautiful home. I would have to say it’s just a mess. Well, Christy weighs in on this and she says, “Look, Earnest has no room to criticize her housekeeping “because he is to blame for their financial mess.” My husband Earnie has been emotionally, verbally and financially abusive for years. Christy thinks that any form of disagreement is abuse. You are a sick person! No Christy, you are! You’re abusive! Earnie will have you believe that I had some kind of financial crisis and that he had to come in and take over. That is not what happened. The reason I handle the money is because Christy is incapable. We did have a lot of credit card debt and that was because Earnie had to have brain surgery and his income dropped drastically. When I lost my job, I paid off the credit cards with my 401(k). Months later, Christy ran the credit cards up again to $82,000. He decided I had to file for bankruptcy. Earnie told me I would still have access to our checking account, but he tricked me. At first, Earnie would give me money to go to the grocery store and then he saw how much bills cost and went bananas. I got a job and as soon as I started getting a paycheck, Earnie stopped buying my food and gas. If I let her do the shopping, she would buy cookies, ice cream and cupcakes. Our house is like a war zone. (screaming) Instead of coming home and asking the girls how their day was, he’ll come in and say, “Why are all these lights on?” Why did you leave the lights on out there and tell me you didn’t do it? That’s not good to be lying. You’re the one lying. We feel like we are Earnie’s prisoners and he’s the warden. Our oldest will joke that her release date is when she turns 18. Cleaning the house is not Christy’s thing either. The house is just like a pig sty. There’s food wrappers, bottles, clothes everywhere. I started taking videos years ago. Today is May 20th, 2014. Here’s coming into, it’d be considered, the formal dining room I guess. I’m constantly worried that we’re gonna lose the house. Since Earnie started handling the finances, it’s gone into foreclosure two or three times. Three months ago, Earnie had not made a house payment in several months and the house was in foreclosure. I really loved Earnie and it took me a long time to accept this, but our marriage can’t be saved. We absolutely have to save our house. I gotta tell you two, just to be real honest, straight, up front, we wouldn’t be here if you didn’t have two daughters. Yes. If it wasn’t for your 14 year old and your 11 year old, you guys would be back there fighting over a pile of clothes that you could barely see each other over and doing God knows what, I don’t know. I would just let you deserve one another and go on, but you’ve got two kids in the middle of this and both of you are acting like immature children and you’re doing it in front of these kids. And that’s why we’re here, just so you know up front. Now we can talk about everything that’s going on, but that’s gotta stop.
