Troubled boxing champion Evander Holyfield and his wife Candi are reaching out to the only man they say can solve their domestic woes: TV blowhard Dr. Phil!
Seriously. They feel the way to resolve their marriage issues - she wants him to turn up the heat, he beats her for not putting God first - is through his format.
Candi Holyfield filed, but then agreed to drop a request for a protective order against Evander over that incident. Today, they issued a joint statement saying:
"We are in agreement that we both are moving forward to reach out to Dr. Phil one-on-one as we believe he is the only one who can help us at this time."
The ONLY one who can help them. They wrote this.
"We each admire and respect Dr. Phil for his down to earth and heartfelt approach in working with couples and relationships in a positive and uplifting way."
If you're Evander and Candi Holyfield, why resolve your private issues with a real therapist when you can do so on TV with this guy running the show?
