Britney visited by Dr. Phil, released

Britney SpearsBritney Spears was visited by television’s Dr. Phil McGraw just prior to her release from hospital on Saturday. She was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by ambulance Thursday after a three-hour standoff with the police at her home. McGraw issued a statement to Entertainment Tonight on Saturday saying: “My meeting with Britney and some of her 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. She was released moments before my arrival and was packing when I entered the room. We visited for about an hour before I walked with her to her car. I am very concerned for her.” The Dr. Phil show is airing a special about Spears on Wednesday. Meanwhile, custody of her two sons was given to her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, at an emergency hearing on Friday. The custody order remains in effect until January 14.

    Dr. Phil may have asked Britney to: “Give Him More?”

    “Can two bald people share an office without driving each other crazy???”

    I always thought Dr. Phil was a quack, but he’s apparently just an opportunistic S.O.B. He gives psychologists everywhere a bad name; so, who can we call to have his license pulled?

    And, thank you very much Oprah for introducing America to him. Makes one take a deep breath if you’re putting your support behind Obama.

    Actual dialogue Britney Spears and Dr. Phillip Mcgraw at Cedas Sinai

    Mrs. Spears
    Hi Phil what took you so long, this place is giving me the creeps.

    Dr. Mcgraw
    We were working out the details with Kevin and your cut throat agents. They threatened to go to Oprah and give her the tv rights. By the way great afects with hellicopter and firetrucks. The special goes this Wednesday.

    Mrs. Spears
    Do you not think people will catch on with a special so close to your visit.

    Dr. Mcgraw
    No people are dumber than stumps they’ll eat this crap up as long as we keep feeding it to them

    Mrs. Spears
    Hey Dr. do you think you could deliver my sisters baby.

    Dr. Mcgraw
    Hey your supposed to act dumb not be dumb. I’m a shrink. Now don’t screw this up sponsors are already paying 3X regular advertising spot for this special. Also I think it might be really good for you to make an appearance on show or one of your family members.

    Mrs. Spears

    We’ll see. It will cost you.

    Dr Mcgraw
    No Kidding

    There’s just no killing cockroaches; they were here before us and will long outlive us. It would appear some even take human form!

    Come now, Oprah’s not THAT bad…

    her career is done with cuz of everything she did.

    Didn’t realize I was putting Oprah on the cockroach list alongside Dr. Phil – but if the shoe fits.

    Hey, do you think if Barack Obama gets the nod for President, he’ll pick Oprah to be his running mate? Oprah for VP?

  15. me • January 9, 2008 @ 1:19 PM

    No doubt, Obama & Oprah are best buds now. I can’t stand either one of them. I do like Dr Phil though, and I hope he works with Brit privately, or finds help for her. Her career is toast, but her kids are still little, if someone could fix her, maybe the kiddies would have a chance at a decent childhood. And that’s a big IF.

    She’s going to have a meltdown soon and be involuntarily committed. She’ll lose her kids for good. This is pretty much the end for her. Its all for the attention. I have never seen someone who stares into the camera so much. She loves it, she lives for it but it will be a little too late when she realizes, oops I did it again, I went too far…..

    Not only will she not be able to recover. She will be lucky if she even gets visitation for those poor boys and look who they’ll end up with! At least he seems to be a closet partier. They should be testing him too if what they say is true about his dope and drinking.

    Those poor boys. They’ll never want the limelight like their parents now. They’ll be too embarrassed to say who their parents are. Who would blame them?

    Dr. Phil…I don’t watch any talk shows but from what I hear, you aren’t too bad. You are working with a lost cause. Give it up before you do actually give up on her….
