We are still obsessed with the Rebecca Zahau “suicide” which Dr Phil has been investigating. You will recall, Rebecca was the attractive girlfriend of billionaire Jonah Shaknai and she was babysitting his young son when the child was severely injured from an accidental fall on the stairs (or sliding down the banister.) While Jonah and his ex-wife Dina (the boy’s mother) were at the hospital with their dying child, Rebecca was found hanging nude from a balcony at the mansion with her hands and feet tied. Strangely, her death was declared a suicide! Case closed – until Dr Phil appeared. According to Radaronline, besides exhuming Rebecca’s body in a search for new evidence, Dr Phil noted that the ex-wife Dina has a TWIN SISTER who was AT THE HOUSE the night Rebecca’s body was discovered! Funny, the San Diego police didn’t reveal this. This case will air in two parts on Dr Phil next week and we can hardly wait.

    I’m not a Dr Phil fan but I will definitely watch this. I’ve had excellent instincts about these things and I can smell a rat from L.A. clear to San Diego. My heart tells me both these innocent people di dnot die accidently. Is there a perfect murder? Maybe, but I hope not. Do rich people get away with murder more often than not-rich people? Definitley… Is it possible to get to the God’s honest truth in a muddy & mangled case like this? Unlikely, but I sure hope so… Go Dr. Phil!

    So called “Dr” Phil is a Texas buffoon. This guy is no board certified Doctor.

    If my child died on someone else’s watch, I most likely would want to kill them too.

    Can someone read what’s on her shirt? I have an I Pad and I can’t quite read it? is it a Kaballah Centre uniform or what?

    This story sounds very, very sinister! I will surely be watching!!

    What’s next…Dog the Bounty Hunter. This will end with a big budget show with a conclusion like: Now there are more questions than answers in this case, and not much more.

    RIP Rebecca but you are not as innocent as you seem and this should be a good lesson for those who are ready to trade their bodies to the rich.

    The news about Dina Shaknai’s sister is not new – it was reported in the San Diego papers at the time, but I guess that fact wasn’t picked up by the national media.

    And good eye, Muffie. Rebecca did in fact work for either an optometrist or opthalmologist in Arizona, but had quite a while back in order to spend time with her boyfriend.

    Oops – that should be “quit” not quite.

    Old Phil creeps out. Some things I agree with and some I don’t. He seems a little like Maury Povich in that I think he enjoys the seedy topics that pop up on their shows. There’s a sick gleem in their eyes telling me there’s probably a dungeon room in their home and some missing hookers tied up there.

    Dr Phil is a pompous ass and totally creepy. I can barely stand to watch him, especially when he tries so hard to be cute, funny or so “folksy”.

    He is a phony and a blowhard, but I agree, don’t think this woman killed herself

    Yep Phil saw how well Maury the Po has done and wants some of that action as well. Who will he want to dig up next JFK, US Grant, Michael the pervert?

    I don’t care if the Doc is a bafoon or not, kudos to him for trying to shed a light on this big time cover-up.

    Has he ever tried to get involved in the Natalee Holloway case or has mom sucked all the air out of that one?

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
