Daytime Talk Show Host Dr. Phil McGraw

Doctor Phil makes a house call! He says the game of life has changed, so what are the new rules and how can you be your best in today’s changing world? Plus, why do men cheat? We get Dr. Phil’s take on why successful men are willing to risk it all.

Dr. Phil is America’s favorite tough-talking Texan. With his talk show already in its 11th season, Dr. Phil is famous for always giving it to you straight. Now, he’s got a new book out called, “Life Code: The New Rules For Winning In The Real World,” and he says it’s a must-read for anyone who wants to succeed in today’s world.

“If you learn the rules, then you can be as healthy and happy and vibrant as you ever were.” -Dr. Phil

Dr. Phil says his new book should be read with the attitude, “sorry to hear it but glad to know it.” In it, he talks a lot about BAITERs – people he says we all need watch out for. So what is a BAITER and how do you spot one?

“Don’t do things that are not consistent with who you really are.” -Dr. Phil

General David Petraeus resigned from the CIA this week after revealing he’d been having an extramarital affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell. While it may be heartbreaking to see a modern American hero fall from grace, unfortunately, he’s just the latest in a long line of powerful men who’ve made similar mistakes. So why do men cheat, especially powerful men with so much to lose?

“I’m surprised that we keep acting surprised that this is a pattern.” -Dr. Phil

When the story about General Petraeus broke, Jill Di Donato wrote an explosive column in the Huffington Post in an effort to give “the other woman’s” point of view. She had an affair with a married, high-profile man and sat down with Katie and Dr. Phil to give us her take.

“I felt tremendous shame. -Jill Di Donato”

Did you know that there is a website where married people can go to cheat? Noel Biderman founded the controversial site AshleyMadison.com because he says there is a demand for it.

“There’s demand for heroin too, but you don’t open a website an sell heroin.” -Dr. Phil

Who are the men and women on Ashley Madison and what has Noel discovered about when and why people cheat?

“Environment is an important driver for infidelity.” -Noel Biderman
