“In real life, Dr. Phil is NOT the compassionate sensitive man you see on TV!” So says an insider who was present for his son Jay McGraw’s wedding to playmate Erica Dahm. “Phil is turning his son’s wedding into a TV show and he walked around with cameras filming the rehearsal dinner and wedding preparations etc. ( Doesn’t that mean the wedding is a total write-off?) Phil micromanaged every detail of the event. He butted into everyone’s work to interview them – about the flowers, lighting, music, decor, food, etc – it was like a giant commercial. And he wasn’t charming about it. ”
“Phil made comments about all the wedding details but ne never complimented or thanked anyone or acknowledged their work in a nice way.”
“And during the wedding festivities Phil was a big HAM and repeatedly stood up and made corny speeches.” Said our snitch. “His manners are brusque – during the reheasal dinner at Republic he impatiently ”dismissed” hovering waiters. And he doesn’t watch HIS diet – he requested bowls of mac and cheese on the table. The surprised wedding guests all had to surrender their cameras at the reception at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Is Phil selling the photos?
The parting gift for guests was not from Tiffany’s – it was a little set of measuring spoons with each inscribed with corny things like “a pinch of love.”
One more reason for Oprah NOT to show up!

    Who respects this doofus? What kind of idiots are his audience? He is the most idiotic condescending piece of crap on TV.

    Can’t stand the guy. Anyone who watches his show can see he’s a total fake.

    I agree with the two posts above. Couldn’t have said it better myself.
    Hope maybe he’ll crash and burn and Star Jones will take his place! Dude’s a pompous fool.

    I have never watched the GUY. When I saw his picture, he turned me off. He is a hidden rodent.
    Never have, never will see any of his shows. He needs to see a psychiatrist.

    I am so not suprised by this behavior – the success of his show has SO gone to his head!! Off topic – his wife needs to quit with all the work on her face!! She is looking very scary.

    I love the Dr. Phil show! This is the backlash that develops sometimes when people become very successful.

    I saw part of the wedding last night on ET. Jan Carl was a guest – need I say more? The bride seemed like she was drunk the whole wedding. She looks like a mini Robin with tons of makeup and botox and over the top outfits. As if this one will last – not! What a ridiculous display of wealth. Tacky!

    His son who just got married, Jay, had a ‘makeover’ show on Fox.
    However, Jay thought it would be easy to just throw together a makeover show. He was trying to copy ABC’s Home Makeover show but failed.
    In a Chicago suburb, they did a shitty job on a makeover & left a wheelchair bound young man, without a place to take a shower or anything else. They left the house in worse shape than before.
    The family ended up having to sue Jay, the production company and many others, even though the papers they signed said they couldn’t sue, they did. The father was livid & has basically threatened to kill Dr. PHil because they were forced to move out & stay in a hotel, which they could NOT afford at all!!!!!
    Shame on Jay & Dr. Phil for leaving this entire family & their wheelchaired son out in the cold. And don’t forget, Dr. Phil’s sister-in-law, had acid thrown in her face when a block of cement fell on her car while driving on the freeway.
    So life is just rosy for the Dr. Phil Clan. And let’s not forget, he & Oprah are currently fighting. So now, we are all breathe & feel better because we now know he’s getting just what he deserves.
    I can’t wait for either a divorce from this Playboy bunny marriage or a baby.

    I agree with Kate on the above statement. This new Playboy bunny looks a lot like Robin. What does that say about her son? Oedipus anyone? And this girl is a triplet.
    Robin has joined some cult/organization behind the scenes & she & Phil have really changed since moving to California.
    Robin has taken to wearing tons of black-on-black clothing, darken her hair, wearing a Catholic cross when she’s a Baptist. Just a lot of weirdness goin’ on with her.
    So just throw in the plastic surgery and voila, some people just want to be in. Hollywood goes after your weakest point and pushes that to your breaking point.
    Sad but true!!!

    He and his wife were in Boston for the 4th of July. All people did was complain about his behavior when in the city. Rude, demanding and obnoxious. His wife too

    Jay is a guy who has been helping out teens and working with them etc then he marries a playmate who also used to be a hef girlfriend that lived in the mansion so you know she has BEEN AROUND! YUCK and has nude pics all over the net that is free access just do a search and there she is in all her glory how is that a role model for kids telling them how to live their lives?? LOL Also a pic of Jay with her at a Hef Party where a bunch of women are pretty much naked they have PAINTED ON costumes! And he works with kids?? Sure isnt being much of an example for them.. I will NOT buy my kids one of his books and he will not SOCIATE with my kids!! Dr Phil is always on his show putting down others who do nude things and about nudity/porn on internet but yet he welcomes her and says “she is a wonderful lady”, “we are so proud”, and “we would adopt her if Jay didnt marry her into the family” on his website and they have a ad of congrats for Jay and his playmate and right next to it a ad for Robin who is speaking at the WOMEN OF FAITH convention. Is she really suitable for that now? I think since they moved to Beverly hills they have really lost their roots! And always we are friends with So and so and we did this and we did that always bragging about what they do and who they know etc I used to look up to them but this celebrity thing has really gotten to their heads! And they are really going down hill!! You think you would expect more from a guy who wrote a book about love smart? and pretty much tells people what are big NOs in a relationship! lol

    Dr Phil just screams a**hole. You couldn’t pay me to meet him. He is as obnoxious as they come. It’s a tie between him and Tom Cruise. Bet any $ he has lascivious thoughts about his new daughter-in-law? What your wife sonny boy!

    My son and his fiancee were guests on the Dr. Phil Show last year. The topic: “My Fiance is Addicted to Porn.”
    That’s right, Dr. Phil told him he had a serious problem, porn is degrading to women and asked him how would he feel if his own daughter did that someday?
    I guess it’s different when the shoe’s on the other foot.
    GET REAL, Dr. Phil!!!

    What goes around comes around….I think Dr. Phil is bomastic…..Robin is fake, Jay is riding on Phil’s coat-tails and Jordan is out of the picture…..the true CLASS ACT is Cindy, Robin’s sister…..

    The “Dr Phil House” was being taped at a residence on Detroit Street, in the miracle mile area and was just stopped by the Los Angeles city council for running a business in a residential area (amoung other things). He moved his filming to Burbank in the hills north of Ikea I think. Does anyone know exactly where it is filming? Please email me if you know. thanks.

    I’m very sorry that Dr. Phil has a dirty playboy bunny as daughter-in-law. She is not pretty, just standard. Also, she looks not smart.

    Dr Phil is all about money and commercialism. He doesn’t care about people. Jay’s wedding is hilarious – I think it’s great that after all that schmuck about teens finding their “authentic selves” he went off and married a porn star! I think Dr Phil has got the daughter-in-law that he deserves 🙂

I can’t watch anymore, used to watch just to HATE the guy – you know? Hey – he thinks he’s god or something if you ask me. I refused to call him Dr. i call him “Uncle Phil” – pass it on.

    Hi again, i call him “uncle phil” – not sure when i’ll see my post. What i really hate is when he points to his BIG SIGN and says, “What does that say?” Oh – like that is the CENTER of the universe or something. I hope Opie hates him now, for good. What a turd-based sellout he is. And the playgirl thing at their ahem MANSION – bald- headed fart. I am FEMALE, and WHY OH WHY did OPRAH just GIVE – GIVE that spot of honor to that old cracker chauvenist pig – at least a WOMAN could have been in there – speaking to DUH, OTHER WOMEN? Wake up and smell the male domination.

    For those of you saying that Dr. Phil is a hyocrit because of the whole porn thing, just so you know, he can’t prevent his son from marrying someone he doesn’t like.

    Just so you know…if Dr. Phil had practiced what he “preaches” in raising his son, his son wouldn’t have married someone in the porn industry! So Dr. Phil had his sons entire life to instill the values that he teaches which would have helped Jay make the decision NOT to marry someone who’s a playboy bunny! Unless she has renounced her playboy past….
    And as for Robin!?? OMG, who in the %$&* chose her to speak at the Women of Faith Conference! Maybe she is an amazing woman (hmm) but can she really speak on being an incredible mother if her son just married a playboy bunny? Unless she talks about the struggle of accepting the wife and the wife has denounced her playboy days as a sin.
    How refreshing to find a site where people can see the hypocrisy.

    sorry guys but i like dr phil and while i think the coverage of the jay wedding was a bit ott what is wrong with being proud of your kids especially on their big day but i did wonder where were her parents who seemed to be left out it was their daughter after all!

    I watch Dr. Phil almost every day. I saw parts of the lavish wedding wedding of Jay to the playboy bunny, It showed off their house and lifestyle very well. People who live in mansions with only two people, should never try to even suggest that we who are middle class or lower, are responsible for what is happening to our environment. That includes Oprah who has mansions, also.

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?
