Did Anyone Watch Oprah today?

  1. The show was with Dr. Phil McGraw......the psychologist who tells it like it is......and then some. :chuckle

    This hubby on the show pays his wife to have sex with him if she expects to have any spending money of her own since leaving her part-time job to be home fulltime with THEIR children. He also pays her $30.00 per week to do housechores. Now.....according to them both.....the more times she has sex with him, the more $$$ she makes. She said, they have sex between ten and fourteen times per week.

    Dr. Phil looked him dead in the eye and said "What the h....were you thinking?" :chuckle

    Another couple has $$$ issues because the wife is a spender.....loves to shop! The hubby is a tight-wad, saving to build them a house, therefore restricts what his wife spends, and wants a written account of everything she spends. Orders her to bargain/comparison shop.

    I'm soooooo blown away by those two couples, all I could do was :chuckle :chuckle :chuckle!!!

    What say you?

    I think it's funny. Was the audience supposed to feel sorry for either one of them?? I meet so many couples and wonder what they were smoking when they decided to get married--and what they kept smoking to stay married! Sounds like Oprah is turning her show into a classy version of Jerry Springer!!

    What about the two sisters fighting about giving their mother money. The mother was driving a BMW that looked brand new. I can't believe this one. I would give my mom money if she really needed it. I agree with the sister trying to support her own family which is difficult enough. I actually enjoy Oprah but some guests are way out there. I missed the first couple. My husband drives me crazy with money because he is a bargain holic and if it's a good bargain he will get it even if we don't need it right now. He also loves to shop. Our marriage is great though. I learned alot from him. Money is not everything.

    Dr. Phil cracks me up. I get Oprah's magazine and his advice column rocks! It will be interesting to see his new talk show. I wish I could catch Phil Donahue's new show - I miss seeing the original talk show King!

    I wonder if Phil Donohue want to puke when he hears about Jerry Springer's show?

    Was assaulted (well, raped) by a man one time who happened to make the comment, "Marriage is nothing but prostitution in return for a contract". So off the wall, it's been >30 yrs and I still remember him saying that. The woman in the first description gives this man's statement credence.

    Yes mamn, you did! You missed the part where the man pays his wife for sex......the more she lets him have sex with her, the more money she makes. He also pays her 30 bucks a week to clean their home. Disgusting behavior! Why oh why does she tolerate that abuse? Self-esteem shot, or what? Poor thing! She needs much prayer, and I for one will be praying that she comes to her senses and kicks him to the wind, or insist he get into therapy along WITH her because any person who lives a life like that obviously does not KNOW HOW TO love themselves.

    Pretty amazing, huh.......

    Honestly, where do they find these people??????

    I found it shocking not only that hubby was paying his wife for sex, but that HE ONLY PAID HER 20$!!!!!!
    Come on now, don't the high-class call girls make more than that????
  11. by   fergus51
    Only 20, and only gets paid for everytime over 5 times weekly. What the hell is wrong with these people. If anyone ever suggested that arrangement to me I would beat them senseless!

    I would AT LEAST expect a FULL SALARY.....:chuckle :chuckle

    Let's see....Honey, I'm sorry, but 20 each time over the first five FREE sessions doesn't cut it! If I were sistergirl.....I'd up the ante on his butt. Pay out 200, 000 dollars a pop or get to steppin' out of my way. :chuckle

    Better yet.....get to steppin anyway. The nerve of him.
