Bombshell Report Claims Dr. Phil Provided His Addicted Guests With Drugs & Alcohol!

If this is true, it is DISGUSTING! According to an investigative report by STAT and the Boston Globe, multiple Dr. Phil guests claim they were knowingly put at risk by the show. Guests with addiction problems are apparently left to their own devices in a hotel room while they detox and wait to film their interview; some [...] If this is true, it is DISGUSTING! According to an investigative report by STAT and the Boston Globe, multiple Dr. Phil guests claim they were knowingly put at risk by the show. Guests with addiction problems are apparently left to their own devices in a hotel room while they detox and wait to film their interview; some said they scored drugs during this time with the knowledge of show staff. Related: Dr. Phil Sued By Former Employee For False Imprisonment One guest allegedly bought heroin with the support of staff; another says she was pregnant and was told by a producer where to go to score drugs (on Skid Row in Los Angeles) while being filmed the entire time. But maybe the most damning claim was made by Survivor winner Todd Herzog (above), who infamously was so drunk during his appearance he had to be half-carried to the stage. You may recall he faced a filmed intervention before coming on the show and detoxed over a couple days. He was sober when he got to the green room, a point corroborated by Herzog's father. But that didn't last long. Herzog says there was a full bottle of vodka just waiting there for him. He says after drinking the alcohol, he was offered a Xanax by someone -- he doesn't know who -- who told him it would calm his nerves for the taping. On the show, Dr. Phil had Herzog take a breathalyzer, blowing a scary .263. And of course the combination with Xanax can be even more dangerous. Herzog told interviewers: "You know, I get that it's a television show and that they want to show the pain that I'm in. However, what would have happened if I died there? You know, that's horrifying." At first the show's rep Martin Greenberg responded by saying they didn't have the responsibility to monitor guests because "it's a television show" not a medical facility. But after being faced with some of the particulars of the report, including Herzog's story, the response changed. Related: Dr. Phil Is Probably Going To Be Sued By That Skateboarder After All In a lengthy letter, Greenberg said Herzog was "medically supervised the entire time he was involved with tapings" by medical professionals, and that all guests are monitored "100% of the time." Then AGAIN after that the show clarified with another statement: "We mean 100% of guests agreeing to treatment. It does not mean that a guest is being monitored 100% of the time." This letter had more flexible language, shifting the blame by saying "substance abusers adopt very clever means" to get their fix. STAT could not find any of the "medical professionals" who monitored Herzog but did find that the treatment centers used by the show said they only provide personnel to accompany guests going FROM the show to their facility. None of this looks like a good prognosis for Dr. Phil. [Image via YouTube.].....»»

ABC Could Announce That Roseanne-Less Roseanne Spinoff Sometime THIS WEEK!

Get ready for Darlene, y'all!!!!! ABC execs are inches away from greenlighting a second reboot of Roseanne after connecting with Tom Werner, who produced the sitcom through his company Carsey-Werner, over the weekend to kick negotiations into high gear. Sources familiar with the situation told TMZ that Werner spoke with top network suits to move forward with [...] Get ready for Darlene, y'all!!!!! ABC execs are inches away from greenlighting a second reboot of Roseanne after connecting with Tom Werner, who produced the sitcom through his company Carsey-Werner, over the weekend to kick negotiations into high gear. Sources familiar with the situation told TMZ that Werner spoke with top network suits to move forward with a Roseanne spinoff without its leading lady and reluctant Ambien spokesperson, Roseanne Barr. Video: Sara Gilbert Stands Behind Roseanne's Cancellation! Insiders say the network is working out last-minute details, which mostly revolve around Roseanne. While the network had a solid cause to fire the comedian as both the star and executive producer, it might be contractually obligated to pay her a fee or back end for her involvement in creating the show. Of course, ABC could always argue it's a different show entirely. The potential spinoff has been speculated to focus on Sara Gilbert's character, Darlene. (Or, even better, Laurie Metcalf's Jackie!!!) Whatever direction the Roseanne-less Roseanne takes, ABC seems bent on trying to salvage the jobs of those affected by its decision to cancel the show. Insiders say an announcement could come as early as this week! Do YOU think ABC can make a brand new train out of this train wreck? [Image via ABC.].....»»

Twitter Lights Up After Impressive Meteor Fireball Explodes In The Sky Over Michigan — Watch!

On Tuesday night, Twitter was lit with videos that appeared to show a fireball shooting through the sky above Michigan.

Surveillance and car dash camera footage recorded flashes of blue and orange exploding over the southeast highways of the state, causing a shower of speculation to fall over social media. After witness accounts made the rounds, the National Weather Service Detroit tweeted that the bright light and loud boom was "likely" a meteor. Citing the U.S. Geological Survey, NWSD later confirmed that a meteor had occurred. Video: Ann Curry 'Not Surprised' By Allegations Against Matt Lauer According to NPR, the meteor blew up over Detroit with enough force to register as a 2.0 earthquake. There were no reports of damage on the ground. Local law enforcement urged witnesses not to call 911 in regards to the space flame, noting in a Facebook post that the sighting was a "natural meteor fireball." But the internet wasn't entirely convinced. See recordings of the big boom for yourself (below) -- along with some alarmed reactions. Did you see it?

Todd Herzog, a former winner of Survivor, appeared on the show in 2013 and was so drunk that he was carried onto the set. He tells STAT and the Boston Globe that he was not drunk when he arrived at the studio, but there was a bottle of vodka in his dressing room and he drank it all. He also says he was given a Xanax by someone on staff to “calm his nerves.” Herzog‘s alcohol level was at .263 and Dr. Phil said he had “never talked to a guest who was closer to death.” There are several other allegations about substance abuse in the report. While McGraw has not commented yet, Martin Greenberg, the show’s director of professional affairs, responded to the allegations. “Dr. McGraw has a very strong sense of trying to not exploit people,” he said. “Now it is a television show. These people volunteer to come on. They beg to come on. And he tries to treat them with respect … and to give them the opportunity to get help if they want to do that. It’s not a complicated formula.”.....»»
