The beautiful Robin, 59, has a full plate of causes she's lending her celebrity, time and effort toward in the new year, including: CASA(Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children), an advocacy group for abused and neglected youngsters; and The Dr. Phil Foundation, a nonprofit devoted to aiding disadvantaged families.
Robin, who's also a New York Times best-selling author (Inside My Heart, What’s Age Got To Do With It?) has been married to Dr. Phil since 1976; the couple has two adult sons, Jay and Jordan.
“Having raised two wonderful boys," said the pal, "Robin’s love of children has pointed her in new directions where she can use her visibility to help make a difference.
"She’s a much sought-after public speaker, and consistently raises Dr. Phil’s ratings when she appears, but she still finds the time for these organizations."
