When Dr. Phil's wife Robin lost her parents, he tells Rach, it was a traumatic experience that actually brought them much closer as a couple.
"She lost both of her parents close together at a very young time in her life," he explains, "and she said to me one day sitting on the end of the bed, 'You know, I'm now an orphan, I've got no people.' That's the day I told her, 'That's not true. Look me in the eye and let me tell you I will never leave you.' She believed it that day and it's something we take very seriously, which is why I just shake my head at these stupid tabloids — we are not getting a divorce, and for them to obsess on something that is so at the core definition of our family is just astounding to me."
