Estranged Mom And Daughter Reunite, But Will Mom Get Sober? (VIDEO)

Heather says she was 16 years old when she realized her mom, Christi, had a drinking problem. "When my mom was drinking or using she would get angry or abusive," recalls Heather, who's now 22. She claims her mom even asked her to buy drugs for her, and that her mom has also ruined her credit. "My mom is a con artist. She loves to say that she's extremely honest but my childhood was filled with lies," Heather says. "My mom is what I fear the most. I would rather swim with sharks."

After two years not seeing each other or speaking, Heather and Christi reunite on Dr. Phil. But what is next for this mother and daughter? Watch their reunion in the video above and more from the show here.
