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 ...

One more exploitation, at least it's mutual.

Dr. Phil probably solved all her problems during their visit.

Hmmmmmm    

Ya know....who the hell cares about what we diagnose her problems as !!! She's certifiable and the azzhole that is Dr. Phil is a loathsome excuse for a person, let alone a "Doctor" AND I use that term loosely to describe this pathetic fake. AND, he's got a prayer if he THINKS she'll actually show up for this thing....IF it is actually true. Although, she may just show up...being as she's a self centered media whore and it's all about HER !!!

what a media whore this guy is! He is not the least bit interested in Brit's behaviorial issues other than how he can capitalize on it for himself......he's a greedy hound. No doubt he promised her an interview on his show to bare all and set "the record straight" (a la Brit's skewd perpsective on the events of her train wreck life. Hey, maybe she can write her autobiography entitled "my life as a train wreck....my life is a train wreck", make tons of money on it and use it to continue to pay the corporation sized employee payroll she's subsidizing). "Doctor" Phil is no M.D.; he's a ruthless pig who is taking advantage of a very needy and perhaps mentally deranged young woman who needs REAL medical help, not cracker jack box certified "Dr. Phil". Hmmmm.... the sweeps are coming, and Dr. Phil wants the ratings boost from a first interview w/ Britney - maybe he's even got a "makeover" plan for her....that should take care of the entire 2008 TV ratings for him. Really brilliant - NOT - but VERY self-serving....YES, Dr. Phil, please help our little celebrities - your past alcoholic lifestyle, really qualitifes you to "cure" other lost souls out there. What a SCAM artist that nit wit is...."Dr." Phil....my ass!!!

According to the NY Post's Page Six, Spears was given sedatives after arriving at the hospital and after the drugs wore off, she began acting out.

The source told the NY Post that Spears' outburst was instigated by a visit from television personality Dr. Phil McGraw.

McGraw is reportedly a friend of the Spears family.

She left the hospital WITH Dr Phil. Dr. Phil is a friend of Brit's Mom. She will not be on his show, he is there to help her.

Too bad she really didn't die, the world would have been such a more peaceful place. She's such an attention whore. She probably enjoyed this to upstage little sis.
