Dr. Phil Cancels Britney-Themed Show

Dr. PhilFeigning concern for those involved, has canceled the show he was planning to dedicate to Britney Spears’ troubles.  Maybe it was because he actually started listening to his audience instead of preaching to them?

Here is a copy of the statement released through his own website:

“As was widely reported this weekend, at the request of concerned family members, I visited Britney Spears in the hospital. The details of that visit will, of course, remain private.

We had planned to tape a Dr. Phil Now show today, focusing not on the tabloid side of Britney’s latest problems, but instead on the very serious issues surrounding this case. Clearly, it is not just Britney’s family struggling to find a way to protect adult children who cannot be ordered or compelled to seek help.

Because the Spears situation is too intense at this time, and out of consideration to the family, I have made the decision not to move forward with the taping at this particular time.

Britney and her family are in our prayers, and we ask that they be in yours.”

Dr. Phil McGraw

You gotta wonder what momma mentor had to say about all this.  I’m pretty sure even she wouldn’t have stooped this low.
