Lindsay Lohan Is Very, Very Upset with Dr. Phil

Yes, this is about Dina Lohan‘s interview with Dr. Phil. Lindsay is super mad, not because her mother is a hot mess, but because Dr. Phil pointed out that her mother is a hot mess on camera.

Here’s what Lindsay tweeted yesterday:

@DrPhil You should be ashamed of yourself. What kind of man takes advantage of a woman @her most vulnerable state? YOU are the fraud.

She’s deleted that one, but this one is still up:

My last tweet was referencing my amazing, beautiful, talented, strong mother. @dinalohan

This is a tough situation, because Dr. Phil is sort of a fraud, but everyone knows it. Everyone knows that he’s not a medical doctor, though he does have a doctorate in psychology. Everyone knows what his shtick is. It’s not like Dina thought “oh, a doctor wants to have a talk with me, this will surely be good for my emotional well-being.” No, she thought “oh, I’ll go on Dr. Phil’s show and then people will talk about me and my daughter and everyone will love us again.” That’s how Dr. Phil works.

And you know, he wasn’t even mean to her. Sure, he was very obviously exasperated, but who wouldn’t be? It’s not like he exploited her, and he certainly didn’t “take advantage” of her. Dina’s the one who requested to do the interview, not Dr. Phil, she wanted to clear her name. Dr. Phil tried to ask her about the things she wanted people to know about, and she flipped off the cameras and kept talking about his shoes. I’m not a Dr. Phil fan or anything, but I think it’s pretty clear that this mess is all on Dina.

  • It’s called a PsyD, it still allows you to go by Doctor. IT’S STILL A DOCTORATE. Someone with a PhD in something like Biology or Chemistry or even Philosophy is still called Dr. Craig, or whatever. Learn your facts before you write it down. You don’t have to be a medical doctor to be a doctor. He has every right to use that in his show.
