Shanell and Tim talk it out

The family members on today’s show refuse to stand by silently while their loved ones carry on relationships with troublesome men. After all, stories like Laci Peterson’s and Lori Hacking’s serve as cautionary tales for families who weren’t aware of danger until it was too late. But at what point should the family’s involvement stop and personal responsibility begin? Join Larry as we explore their stories below:


Elaina says she is in a frustrating situation: her sister Shanell is constantly calling her to complain about her husband Tim, but refuses to take Elaina’s advice to leave him. Though Tim cheated on Shanell just 30 days into their marriage, he says his cheating days are long gone, which both Shanell and Elaina have a difficult time believing. Shanell says she is dedicated to working out their problems, especially since they have a young son to raise. Dr. Yvonne Thomas met with the couple, saying that although Elaina is well-intentioned, she will need to back off so that Shanell and Tim can find peace on their own.
