Dr. Phil annoys me. There, I said it.
He sits there on his high horse telling you how you should live your life.
He writes books on how to lose weight, yet those same millions who buy them would be frightened to death if they ever saw a shirtless Dr. Phil on the beach.
So yes, I generally go out of my way to avoid watching his show. However, my wife and I were “channel surfing” last night when we came across his show. Admittedly, I didn’t watch very long, but I saw enough. He and some “expert” were talking about the mother of the octuplets (a favorite subject of mine as you know), Nadya Suleman.
They played some of the voice mails she’s received from the citizens of America – of course, they picked out the ones that the crazy people sent her. (You’ll be happy to know I did not send a message … lol). One voice mailer in particular was particularly inappropriate, saying she should “have her uterus ripped out.”
While that is certainly a bit over the top, what did you expect the American people to think about this subject? Surely you didn’t think there would be a groundswell of support for this irresponsible woman! No job, no house, 14 kids ages seven and younger, fertility treatments, eight kids at once … you go, girl!
Then there was the worst part … glorifying the mother of 14. Next … the never-before-seen footage … Nadya at her high school prom! Excuse me, where’s the relevancy here? What’s next? When we return, we’ll show you the exclusive footage of Nadya going to the 7-11 for a roll of paper towels. Stay tuned; or Next, we take you along for the ride to the supermarket as Nadya pays for the groceries for her 14 kids with $2,000 in food stamps.
Pathetic. Simply pathetic.
