I couldn’t help but be a little outraged when I heard that Dr. Phil was planning a special on Britney after visiting her in the hospital. Even though he pulled the show, he lost a whole lot of credibility with me. The thought of doing a special on her plight was predatory, whatever the gain to viewers.
Britney has had her share of pain recently. That pain should not have even been considered as media fodder by Dr. Phil. That was insensitive and pure exploitation. So, I understand where her family is coming from.
Yes, she needs help and support…PRIVATELY, not publicly. Too much laundry has already been aired in public. Maybe Dr. Phil has forgotten about what 1 to 1 work entails! Including confidentiality (whether a doctor patient relationship existed or not).
I can only say…"Dr. Phil…WHAT where you thinking?"
