Dr. Phil Responds To Accusations Of Show Staff Giving Known Addicts Drugs & Alcohol

As a former psychologist once said, "There are some sick people in this world." And according to Thursday's shocking report from STAT and The Boston Globe, Dr. Phil staff may be some of them. In the article, multiple former guests suffering from addiction say show staff, including producers, encouraged or aided them in finding drugs before taping. [...] As a former psychologist once said, "There are some sick people in this world." And according to Thursday's shocking report from STAT and The Boston Globe, Dr. Phil staff may be some of them. In the article, multiple former guests suffering from addiction say show staff, including producers, encouraged or aided them in finding drugs before taping. Survivor winner Todd Herzog (above) says he was left a full bottle of vodka in the green room. Related: Andrew Garfield Candidly Discusses His Relationship With Drugs While the show was given multiple opportunities to defend its actions in the article, clearly they didn't like how they came off. So on Friday morning, Dr. Phil McGraw and company released a public statement condemning the "tabloid-style story: "Hello: There is an unsubstantiated, tabloid-style story recently published about the show's handling of two or three guests over the last 16 years. We thought a clarifying statement might be timely. Here it is below — and from all of us at "Dr. Phil," have a safe and Happy New Year! December 29, 2017 STATEMENT FROM THE DR. PHIL SHOW The STAT article does not fairly or accurately describe the methods of the Dr. Phil show or its mission to educate millions of viewers about drug and alcohol addiction. The show does not give drugs or alcohol to its guests and any suggestions to the contrary are errant nonsense. For the past 16 years, the Dr. Phil show has provided valuable information to viewers by telling compelling stories about people who are fighting the battle to overcome alcohol and drug addiction. Unfortunately, addicts often lash out at the very people who are trying the hardest to help them break the cycle of addiction. Although terribly unfortunate, this is an understandable part of the behavior of addicts on their journey to recovery. This will not deter the Dr. Phil show from its commitment to educate and inform the public about the worsening epidemic of addiction." What do YOU think of this new denial?

The Emoji Movie Is An Appalling Pile Of 💩! See What Critics Are Saying About Sony"s Cash Grab!

Like it or not, we have become a society of smartphone addicts — and we pay for it with 💩 like this is! No one was expecting The Emoji Movie to be a masterpiece after learning it would follow defunct emojis trying to break out of a universe inside our smartphones. But based on the reviews, the [...] Like it or not, we have become a society of smartphone addicts -- and we pay for it with 💩 like this is! No one was expecting The Emoji Movie to be a masterpiece after learning it would follow defunct emojis trying to break out of a universe inside our smartphones. But based on the reviews, the Sony Animation film is far worse than it's main character, "Meh" (voiced by T.J. Miller) -- and was actually better described as the throw-away character "Poop" (voiced by Sir Patrick Stewart). Photos: These Celebs Totally Look Like Emojis! Critics were not only diss-app-ointed by the story (which most described as a cheap rip-off of Inside Out), but the amount of product placement was enough to make any theater goer look like 😡. Though we're sure kids will LOVE special appearances by YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Spotify, the Sony-owned Crackle app, and of course... DropBox! See the 😞 review roundup (below) to get a better idea of why this film scored a dismal 3% on Rotten Tomatoes -- and, if you dare, see The Emoji Movie in theaters now! Jordan Hoffman, NY Daily News: "This failed attempt to create a story from a texting trend makes the worst comic book adaptation look like Shakespeare. The script is entirely predictable despite making absolutely no sense. It not only fails to entertain, it will leave you 😡." John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter: " It is fast and colorful enough to attract young kids, but offers nearly nothing to their parents. If only this smartphone-centric dud, so happy to hawk real-world apps to its audience, could have done the same in its release strategy — coming out via Snapchat, where it would vanish shortly after arrival. But even that wouldn't be fast enough." Owen Gleiberman, Variety: "The cartoon ideograms from your smartphone get their own animated adventure, but do they deserve it? Actually, they deserve better than this witless Inside Out knockoff." Matt Singer, ScreenCrush: "No animated movie outside the Cars franchise has raised more logistical questions about its strange setting than The Emoji Movie. Here is just one question I had: In one scene, Poop (and his son!) exit a restroom stall. When a sentient poop uses a toilet, what do they excrete? What is in a poop's poop? On second thought, don't tell me." Emily Yoshida, Vulture: "In the mock tradition of countless superior Pixar films before it, it's attempting to sell a sense of childlike wonder and fascination with an ordinary, everyday object: your smartphone. And in doing so, it is one of the darkest, most dismaying films I have ever seen, much less one ostensibly made for children." Glenn Kenny, The New York Times: "For a long time, Hollywood has been propagating the idea that the panderingly, trendily idiotic can be made to seem less so, by polishing it up with bright shiny gloss and enlisting engaging talented performers and writers. I can't be entirely certain of this, but I would say The Emoji Movie takes this notion to the outer limits of credibility." Lindsay Bahr, The Associated Press: "If you're worried about whether or not this is some big smartphone advertisement, it only kind of is. There's a whole journey through the Spotify app, and they have to get through a dance competition in the Just Dance app to get where they're going, and there is a line that seems to have been written by marketing folks about how illegal malware can't get into the protected DropBox app. Oh and while it's not mentioned, the Sony-owned Crackle app is always on Alex's home screen." Alissa Wilkinson, Vox: "Most likely, it was going to be a garbage fire. And now that I've seen it, I can confirm that suspicion: The Emoji Movie is a waste of time, resources, and a bunch of comedians' voices, plus a premise that actually had the potential to do some small good in the world. It's less of a movie and more of an insult." David Elrich, IndieWire: "How exciting to enter a film world in which all of the characters literally just tell us who they are over and over and over again like they're not physical manifestations of the feelings that define them! The brilliant Maya Rudolph adds all sorts of passive-aggressive texture to Smiler, the homicidal smiley face who lords over this place, it's just too bad that every single one of her lines is some variation of 'can't you see how happy I am?' Yes, yes we can. Your body is a giant smile with legs." Vadmi Rizov, A.V. Club: "Central character Gene (T.J. Miller), the inexplicably named "meh" emoji, must go on a journey of self-discovery and learn to accept himself, which chimes with [director Tony Leondis's] own childhood, growing up gay in a religious household... After viewing the final product, Miller's reasoning for making the movie sounds more believable: 'Sony knows we down to get motherfucking paid globally.'" [Image via Sony Pictures.].....»»

Georgina Chapman is obviously the woman all Weinstein victims should look up to as “settlement goals.” She is also the woman Weinstein victims should sue the living shit out of for not keeping her pet molester on a leash. Chapman is cashing out a cool $15 to 20 million not to watch her husband ejaculate into the shower drain any longer while asking if his actions make her aroused. It’s like winning the lottery with the bonus of walking away from that terrible person you tied the knot with guilt free. Georgina will also receive primary custody of their two children. Allegedly their father can’t teach them any life skills other than tainted business practices. Any entity with the Weinstein name attached accepts cash, credit, or sex as forms of payment. While a settlement has been reached, Chapman, 41, and Weinstein, 65, have not filed in court. Millions of dollars isn’t a bad deal when Georgina suffered the least out of all the victims. After a full night on the town of rape and sexual assault, any man would be too tired for forced intercourse with the woman he married. I doubt she’ll share a dollar with any of the other victims as she had the burden of bearing both of his children. She’s tied to Harvey for a while. There will be whispers at every dinner and day party in Hollywood years to come about how she aided and abetted a serial sexual harasser. $15 million should cover the cost of a couple Kleenex boxes for the random cry spells in the middle of Neiman Marcus.

Robert Pattinson appears on two covers for Wonderland's Autumn Issue, and in one of them, the Twilight star wears a pink wig to accessorize his Dior outfit. Getting a Nicki Minaj vibe! Related: Robert Pattinson Used To Be Roommates With Dustin Diamond AKA Screech?? In the publication, the Good Time actor -- who doubles as guest editor -- speaks to author Yuval Noah Harari about his proposed theme for the issue. According to an excerpt obtained by E! News, Kristen Stewart's ex said: "I wanted the theme of the Wonderland issue to be something like 'The Nature of Reality' and contrast people whose sole purpose seems to be to pervert reality with a cross-section of people like you, who seem to have a more healthy and comprehensive understanding of it."' The Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind writer responds: "I think that in a way you're in the business of creating reality, at least from my viewpoint as a historian and philosopher. Images and fantasies and fictions basically rule the world. The tools we use are built by engineers and technicians and chemists and physicists, but the aims that we use these tools for, they are basically our dreams. So many people spend all their lives chasing a dream that was implanted in their minds by some movie, TV series, poem, novel, whatever – of course it is rarely just one, you can't create a culture based on just one piece of art. I'm fascinated by the way that art and fiction are really the movers and shakers of the world." See more pics in the batch (above)! [Image via Sandy Kim/Wonderland.].....»»

The good news is he's back in 2018 with The Polka King, the true story of Polish immigrant Jan Lewan's (Black) pursuit of the American Dream. [...] Though he voiced Po in Kung Fu Panda 3, Jack Black’s last live action features were 2015’s Goosebumps and The D List. The good news is he’s back in 2018 with The Polka King, the true story of Polish immigrant Jan Lewan’s (Black) pursuit of the American Dream. Unfortunately, those goals were not met via honest and hard work as he created the world’s only known Polka Ponzi scheme. Lewan’s life story was previously spotlighted in the 2009 documentary The Man Who Would Be Polka King, and this version should shine a bigger spotlight on Lewan’s colorful (and criminal) life. Maya Forbes (Infinitely Polar Bear) and Wally Wolodarsky (Seeing Other People) are the co-writers and directors of The Polka King, with Jenny Slate, Jason Schwartzman, Jacki Weaver, J.B. Smoove and Willie Garson rounding out the cast. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think! The Polka King hits Netflix January 12, 2018.
