Would-Be Victim in Ohio Murder-for-Hire Plot to Speak About Ordeal With Dr. Phil
Tara Lambert has just begun a five-year sentence after she was plead guilty of trying to hire a hitman to kill the mother of her stepchildren.
Dr. Phil McGraw is kicking off his 17th season with a big exclusive, speaking with Tara Lambert and the woman at the end of her wrath — Kellie Cooke.
“It's a very relatable story and I think people are going to be unable to turn away," he told Inside Edition.
The case centers on former model Tara Lambert, who tried to hire a hitman to kill her husband's ex, Kellie Cooke. She was recorded telling an undercover police officer to put the woman in a wood chipper.
Lambert made headlines when she showed up at her trial in tight-fitting dresses, five-inch stilettos, and other glamorous outfits. She claims the jury turned against her because she was just too sexy.
Lambert pleaded guilty in July.
“It really rattled her because they were confidantes, they were best friends," Dr. Phil told Inside Edition of Cooke’s fright during the ordeal. "That's a long way to fall from best friends to feeding someone's body in a wood chipper."
Lambert asked Dr. Phil about her courtroom attire and her thinking behind the outfits.
“I remember it turning into some kind of wardrobe circus," she said. "I couldn't believe it."
The first part of "The Model, the Hitman and the Victim" airs Monday.
