Triumph: A Father Returns from Rehab
The Kestler Family first appeared
on the show “At Odds Over Corporal Punishment”
on January 5, 2005. Learn more about their amazing
story and find out what’s happened since
After a 60-day stay at the Comeback
Treatment Center, Bobby Kestler has finally reunited
with his wife Monir and their daughters Tiffany,
Dallas and Tyler. Bobby entered the facility after
the show to deal with his drinking and anger problems.
While Bobby was away, the rest of the family focused
on making their home more conducive to Bobby’s
recovery. They also met with psychotherapist Stacy
Kaiser for counseling and to define family goals.
Watch Bobby's emotional return to his family.
Now that Bobby has beaten his addiction,
Monir and the girls say that life is completely
different at home. Not only is Bobby twenty pounds
lighter, but he is also calm and sober for the
first time in ten years.
As a special surprise for Monir,
Larry invited her sister Angie to the show. The
siblings haven’t seen each other in five
years, and Angie was unaware of what Monir was
going through until watching the show. Video:
Monir's and Angie's reunion is a powerful moment.
Also strongly affected by the Kestler story was
Danielle, a viewer whose father recently passed
away. Danielle’s upbringing was very similar
to that of the Kestler girls and she says she
wants to commend Bobby on taking steps to mend
relations before it was too late.
