Call it a string of bad luck, or if you are me, call it orgasmic, but whatever you call it, Dr. Phil is back in trouble; again.
TMZ says, Here’s the way it all went down: The good Doc’s executive staff sent a seasoned producer down to Florida, along with a P.A. to chase the story of 8 teens who allegedly beat a classmate on tape. We’re told the folks back home were horrified when they saw Mr. Large-and-In-Charge putting the smack down on local reporters after springing 17-year-old Mercades Nichols from the pokey. We’re told execs on the show were pissed that the experienced producer allowed the P.A. to be in a position to embarrass the show in front of the cameras.
The bigger question — who hatched the plan to pay the bail for the woman accused of kidnapping and videotaping the brutal beating? The show issued a statement saying certain staff members “went beyond their guidelines,” but the buzz on the Paramount lot is that it would be impossible for the producer to pay the $3,300 for the bail and put up $33,000 in collateral without the full knowledge and approval of higher-ups on the show.
Dr. Phil is pretty much the anti-christ, and this is just more evidence to support such. I thank Oprah for spawning this evil. Who in their right mind goes and bails out someone accused of kidnapping?
