EXCLUSIVE: Inside Scoop on McGraw Wedding

8/13/2006 10:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jay McGraw, the son of TV pop psychologist Dr. Phil, got married on Saturday in Beverly Hills to former Playboy Playmate Erica Dahm – and Oprah was a notable no-show, TMZ has learned.

If there was any doubt that Dr. Phil and Oprah are on the outs, Oprah's absence from the nuptials of the son of her onetime protégé may just have confirmed it.

As for the wedding itself, TMZ has learned that the reception was held at the swanky Beverly Hills Hotel – right around the corner from Dr. Phil's estate, where the ceremony was performed. Of the 400 guests, the best-known celeb amongst them was talk-show legend Larry King.

The musical entertainment was a highlight of the occasion – songwriter extraordinaire David Foster played piano with the wedding band, and R&B singer-producer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds performed three songs, which Foster had rehearsed with the band for five hours. The result, says our source, was "amazing."

Some of the toasts given on behalf of the new couple seemed a little off-key; one of the bride's sisters, for instance, said, "When we first met Jay, we thought he was a jackass – but he turned out to be this wonderful nice guy." Dr. Phil was somewhat more charitable to his new daughter-in-law, saying with glass raised, "For a lot of girls, Erica is an easy girl to hate. She's skinny and beautiful. . . In this country, there's no such thing as an arranged marriage, but if there were, we'd want to arrange for Erica to marry Jay."

During the reception, guests noshed on such treats as mini-cheeseburgers, French fries, and little root beer floats, all said to be scrumptious. Cameras were out in force, with coverage to come on Dr. Phil's syndicated talk show.

The happy couple, who met on the set of a 2004 FOX reality show, is taking their honeymoon in Fiji.

Jay has a boooooooring personality, I tried to watch the show they were on, it was a home makeover show and it was dull with him. What will his wife say when he loses his hair like Dad?

I've never heard a wedding toast praising the bride for being skinny!! An easy girl to hate? Envy, maybe, but hate is a strong word for a wedding wish! What was on his mind? Does Robin hate this girl, is that where it comes from?

FYI, Whoever made comment #15 named Sean, should get an award :) for being a jerk to make such a comment = get a life Dumb Ass! Sounds like you just can't stand for someone else to be happy and Jay looks like he is very happy. I hope for the best for their marriage and I only wish that I could have been at the wedding, I would have had the time of my life even if Oprah didn't show up. OH, just because she wasn't their doesn't mean a thing about how she feels about Dr. Phil, all the people that believe that are just being judgemental before getting the facts straight & shouldn't be commended because she is a busy business woman & friend.

Oprah was not there because there were too many white people. She not so secretly hates white people. Plus, they didnt order enough hamburgers.

oprah winfrey was busy buying hermes scarves for her (non lesbionic) gal pal gayle king, thus she could make it for little dr. feel's wedding. dr feel is the lowest form of scum on the planet earth. his holier than thou venom spewing is a joke.
he is a bald dr. laura. no background to his name. no integrity.

i wonder if he will be on dad's show when he divorces this chick.

oprah/gayle/dr. feel/litlle feel are pop culture in it's lowest form
