Oprah Wants to Fire Dr. Phil

Posted on January 17, 2008

Cover of the National Enquirer According to the National Enquirer Oprah Winfrey is furious at Dr. Phil for his mishandling of the Britney Spears situation (stalking her at the hospital, trying to do a crazy tv intervention with her family) and wants to fire him. Oprah made him a star and produces his talk show.

Dr. Phil got some more bad news as well: some psychiatrist is so incensed by Dr. Phil's unethical behavior he is trying to get the California licensing board to investigate him for disclosing medical information about a patient, thereby violating federal law. But Dr. Phil has no license to practice in California. So if he is found to have been practicing without a license, criminal charges could be filed against him. No wonder Oprah's so mad at him.
