Dr. Phil McGraw would be the first to tell you--healing starts at home.

That's why the talk show host and his wife Robyn are barking back at a decorating duo they claim has defrauded them of $655,000.

The decoration in question was the revamping of the master suite in the McGraw's Beverly Hills property, in July 2008. The TV couple are requesting their $665k, punitive damages, and attorney's fees.
