He has some guests on with really heartbreaking stories, but he never cries. Oprah would always cry with her guests. What's up with Dr. Phil?
Why doesn't Dr. Phil ever cry?

His wind tunnel facelift is way too tight for that shit

One of my favorite Dr. Phil moments was when he was being interviewed for his weight loss book or something. I think it was Katie Couric doing the interview.
During the interview, he commented that people are just fat and out of shape because they make excuses about everything. They'll cry that they have this wrong with them or that and that's why they can't lose weight but in reality, they're just making excuses.
Katie then pointed out that people might say that Dr. Phil himself was not fit and might be considered overweight.
His response was that it was different because he was overweight because he had a knee injury and couldn't get into shape.
And there you have it.

[quote]Sociopaths don't cry, do they?
They make some of the best crybabies. Look at all of the evangelists who cry at the drop of a hat. They're not really crying, they learn to mimic emotions in order to deceive.
Having said that, I wouldn't be surprised if Dr. Phil is sociopath even though he doesn't "cry". There is something about him that screams big fat phony.

Most professionals in his line of work (both as a tv host and a psychologist) don't cry. It's not like he hasn't heard these stories for years; one does become jaded and his angle has always been more of a tough-love, no-nonsense thing. Oprah could cry on her show because touchy-feely emotional manipulation was her schtick.
|by Anonymous||reply 17||07/18/2013|
Psychologists are trained not to cry. They are supposed to put their emotions aside and focus on the patient. Sort of like how regular doctors don't burst into tears when they tell you you have cancer or something.

He tries to pass himself off as this kind, compassionate, non-judgemental psychologist, but he's just a celebrity fame-whore out to make a buck.
His shows are infuriating. He'll have someone on his show who seems to be psychotic or sociopathic and he'll listen to them spouting insane nonsense and then lean back and say "I understand." If the nutjob blamed his or her abominable behavior on being abused as a child he'll say "I realize you're a victim, too." You just want to scream at him to grow a pair of balls and give these fuckers what-for.
A recent show (I rarely watch his shitty show, but I thought this might be interesting) was about a woman who had the lower half of her face shot off in a robbery when she was a teenage girl. Two teenage girls committed the crime; the shooter, who was 14 at the time, got 6 years in a juvenile facility. They had the shooter, now an adult woman, on the show; the monstrous cunt had absolutely NO remorse whatsoever. In fact, she thought she was being unjustly treated; she said she'd done her time, so what were people getting on her case about it now for? I wish the idiot Doctor Phil has said flat out to her: "you don't have any remorse, do you?" Instead he agreed that she was a victim too (an adult male had cajoled her into rob the store) and let her total lack of remorse slide. It made me want to shoot the tv screen.

Here is the low down on "Dr" Phil. His doctorate is in Philosophy in clinical psychology. He and his father joined successful Texas business woman Thelma Box in doing seminars they called "Pathways." Phil was hired on by the Oprah legal team as a consultant in jury selection and this was where Oprah met Phil. She thought his down home no nonsense style would play well on t.v. except- it was ripped off from Box. His first book, Life Strategies, is taken directly from Box's Pathways seminars.
He has has several run ins with the Texas Board of Examiners. He hired a former patient who then complained of unwanted sexual advances (Dr. Phil is alleged to be a serial cheater on his wife Robyn.). Dr. Phil, in fact, does not have a license to practice psychology any more. It was determined that he did not need a license for the show since it was an "entertainment" show.
in regards to his weight loss book and supplements - he had to pull them from the market because he had no medical background to support his claims. A class action suit was filed and settled out of court for 10.5 million dollars.
He famously visited Britney Spears in the hospital and proceeded to release information about that publicly to get the spears family to agree to an intervention on his show.
He does not cry because he is a pure evil dick.

NEVER make eye contact with 'the little people' as you hurry backstage. Keep eyes firmly on the floor or husband so as not to accidentally look at an audience member (this may encourage them to attempt some dreadful form of human interaction such as waving and/or holding out of their bacteria-laden, poverty-stricken hand). GET THE FUCK OFF THAT STAGE AS QUICKLY AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE!!!

The stories on his shows are not heartbreaking. They are contrived, hollow events of bored, unloved teens and fat disengaged moms who can't stay off FB. He used fucking Powerpoint to review a list of someone bad behavior.
The guests are only filler until he can plug his son's publishing company or Robin's overpriced skincare line. They taped a jar of hand cream under each seat and everyone would gasp in elation upon its discovery. (Don't judge me, I took off Dec 15-31 for the holidays)

Yes. Read what R26 wrote. Phil is a serial cheater. His wife sits in the audience every single day so that he doesn't cheat on her. He earned $86 million last year. His wife doesn't let him go to the bathroom alone. She keeps both eyes on him at all times

I love watching that show "Bull" that is allegedly based on his life. It's kind of hilariously bad--not camp, or anything. It's just insanely altruistic and the lead actor is so much better looking than Phil. You know he totally believes he's that good looking and he's that great a guy.
"Bull" is definitely an apt title.
|by Anonymous||reply 47||01/16/2017|
Ha! R46, I've heard he is an ass but didn't know he was a cheater. That explains why Robin watches him like a hawk during the show. She probably gets a huge salary and one gratuitous close up every show.
I also didn't know his ties to TX. That explains why he sends his guests to recovery ranches in TX. He whisked them away in a big SUV directly from the show's taping. He and Oprah have all employees sign ironclad "keep your mouth shut" agreements. I'm sure Ellen D. is the same way.
