Jael's family appealed to Dr. Phil for an intervention, saying that she's suffered from a meth addiction for 6 years -- which would imply that 5 years ago, when she was on "America's Next Top Model," she was abusing drugs.
Her skin has essentially disintegrated as a result of all the drug use, and mentally, she's not doing too well either. During the show, she bolted from the studio, running through the Paramount lot as she tried to hide behind a dumpster from Dr. Phil.
We'll certainly be tuning in on Thursday, Sept. 13 to see whether he successfully talks her into getting some help!
