A Bitter Phil To Swallow

Here's some more info about Dr. Phil McGraw's interaction with poor ole Britney Spears today, who surely didn't need the aggravation. From the Associated Press via the New York Times:
Television's ''Dr. Phil'' McGraw said Britney Spears was released from a hospital Saturday but still needs psychological help, the syndicated programs ''Entertainment Tonight'' and ''The Insider'' reported in a press release.

The troubled pop star was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by paramedics Thursday night after police were called to her home because of a dispute involving the two sons she had with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

''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,'' McGraw told the programs.

''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,'' he said.

McGraw planned to talk more about Spears on his daytime talk show this week, the press release said.

What a godamned vulture Dr. Phil is! Circling around Britney's poor, confused carcas, trying to sink his talons in so he can boost his show's ratings. I can just see him ranting at her while she packed and then as he followed her out to her car: "Britney, sometimes you make the right decision, sometimes you make the decision right! The most you get is what you ask for! You're only lonely if you're not there for you! We teach people how to treat us! Sometimes you gotta give yourself what you wish you were getting from someone else! JUST SNAP OUT OF IT!"

Have you no sense of decency, sir? Bleh.

Britney Spears is playing everyone like cheap violins. Yes, she's emotionally unhealthy. Duh. She's smiling at the press from a gurney in the back of an ambulance; she's smiling at the photographers when she's leaving a court room after being dressed down by the Judge; she's getting the attention that she craves, even if it's negative. She HAS to have all eyes focused on her, and when they wander, she does something stupidly outrageous to draw them back. Dr. Phil is just falling prey to being part of the sideshow.
