Spears Daddy to Dr. Phil -- See Ya!

1/7/2008 1:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources tell TMZ that Brit's dad, Jamie, has officially bailed on Dr. Phil -- he wants nothing to do with the intervention show.

We're told it's still uncertain whether Brit's momma, Lynne, will appear. But the show that created such a buzz over the weekend seems like it's suddenly hurting for guests.

Stay tuned ...

Love Cartman's 'how's that working out for you, Phil". The only good thing coming out of this mess, but it is a VERY good thing, is that Dr. Phil is getting exposed for the phony, conceited, overrated loud mouth that he is. Oprah, are you ashamed of your protegy?

Now I hope Lynne Spears comes to her senses, and Dr. Manipulation slithers back under his rock.

And if you don't think that this is about publicity for the good "doc", ask yourself this question:

Why did he feel a need to blatantly lie in a press release and say that he talked to her for an hour and walked her out to her car, when none of that was the truth? Could it be because the truth would reflect badly upon her would-be rescuer and make it seem like he failed in his attempts?

I hadn't been to Dr. Phil's web site for quite a while, but when all this came up, I decided to check it out again. He's gone for the total celebrity glitz look, it's all laid out like a tabloid and I don't think that bodes well. If his goal is now to get involved in celebrity interventions, I think he's traveling down the wrong road. Britney and her family have the resources to seek professional help - if they choose not to, well, so be it. But there are tens of thousands of people with real, every day problems whose willingness to come forward and talk to a psychologist could actually benefit others. There is nothing to be gained by watching a celebrity meltdown.
