You gotta love Dr. Phil.
Sunday’s big news was Dr. Phil McGraw’s visit to the hospital room of Britney Spears. Apparently, TV’s resident tough love guru felt the need to suck some publicity out of a bad situation and decided to do his famous 5-minute analysis (bring to mind Quick-Draw McGraw, anyone?) of pop culture’s current Queen of Self-Destruction. (A title hotly pursued by not only Britney, but also Lindsay, Paris, Nicole . . .)
And, man oh man, the insight this guy has is utterly amazing. Check out this quote that McGraw graciously shared with Entertainment Tonight:
“My meeting with Britney and some family members this morning in her room at Cedars leaves me convinced more than ever that she is in dire need of both medical and psychological intervention.”
How many years of training and clinical experience did it take for Dr. Phil to be able to come to that conclusion?
Up next: The son of Jacques Cousteau appears on the Discovery Channel to announce that after careful study he has determined that the Pacific Ocean has a lot of water in it.
