Dr. Phil apologizes about Britney mess (kind of)
Last week, word surfaced that Dr. Phil was going to apologize on his show today for getting involved with Britney Spears and her many problems. But the "doctor" doesn't exactly apologize for getting involved in the first place, only that he made it public, which is sort of like saying you don't apologize for stealing something, only that you got caught.
On today's show, "Dr." Phil says that the only thing he's sorry for is telling anyone about what he was trying to do. He doesn't apologize for "trying to help this family or this girl in trouble."
I finally figured this out: "Dr." Phil needs help just as much as his patients do. He's the world's most arrogant superhero, thinking that he's the only therapist (or whatever the hell he is) who can possibly help someone in trouble. What he should have done is completely stay out of it, because he knew that even if he didn't say anything, it would eventually turn into a media circus. He should have either stayed out of it or called another therapist to help the family.
It's convenient that "Dr." Phil doesn't mention the special episode of his show that he was going to create out of this meeting with Spears (now canceled). I'm sure when he says he only wanted to help the family that attention and ratings and exploitation were the furthest thing from his mind. Thanks, Oprah, for unleashing this hemmoroid on the world.
