Phil Still Thinks Brit Visit Was OK

Dr. Phil remains totally unrepentant about barging into Britney Spears' hospital room -- though he says he screwed up by blabbing about it later.

He tells USA Today that talking to the media after his brief visit was not "helpful," and he regrets doing so. But he clearly thinks it was okay to intervene, even though, as TMZ reported, he's not licensed as a psychologist in California: "How could you not?"

After the Brit visit blew up in his face, says Phil, he decided to scrap his all-Britney show. "There was so much noise ... I decided this isn't the time to do it."

Lohan also did 84 minutes in jail late last year as part of the plea.
