Britney Takes Phil Pill

1/5/2008 3:58 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

And guess what else we've confirmed ...

TMZ has learned that Dr. Phil paid a visit to Brit this morning -- and she could return the favor next week by appearing on "The Dr. Phil Show."

The show is taping a special about Britney Spears on Monday, which will air on Wednesday. They requested video of Britney from TMZ on Friday.

When you connect the dots, it's pretty clear they are angling to get Britney on the set on Monday.

Stay tuned ...

Dr. Phil can atone for his greed & bad judgement re: Spears;

he did tell public that she still needed help & that the descision by Cedar's doctors to release her was a mistake.

It would be a wonderful thing for Dr. Phil to have a show on the bad ethics of Mental Health Care today; especially the neglegence of truly ill patients. So many families suffer when loved ones can not make good decisions for themselves. This is a woman who threatend to harm her own children for 3 hrs! How much more "harm" & "danger to others" do the Cedar's doctor(s) need to qualify a commitment?

Brittany has had terrible care all along, starting w/publicity-hungry Promises; whose Dr. betrayed her confidentiality; to the present episode. She may be a very difficult, pesky pt; from hell -- that is what a psychiatrist is there to treat. What Cedars did in terms of displaying blatant poor judgment; could be very harmful to a large number of people needing aggresive intervention!

It is time for Dr. Phil to do something really decent for the "Behavioral Health" scene; something that would help everyone. Time to make Cedars & Promisies & all facilities like theirs accountble for the care they give!

I can understand her not trusting her parents and those around her durning this time of needing help. They have been selling her out for years. Her mother would only look for the highest bidder once she had her commited. It's all about fame, ratings or money. She has become a product for those that stand to make something off her and then they wonder why she is running. Like Dr Phil a personal friend of Lynne's, Britney has issues with her mother so how can she trust him when he has been in the media praising Lynne? He only wanted to help her on his show as long as his cameras were running and this was the best the mother could do in getting Britney help? Why is he going public even giving a press release saying personal stuff about her? All of this has become like a cheap circus with Lynne being the clown. She needs to stop being a manager and become a real mother and stop sucking the life out of them. The children have been supporting Lynne since they were very young children.
