Dr. Phil's Peeps to Bondsman: We Work for Him!

4/14/2008 3:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Phil's peeps who posted bail for the Florida girl charged in the videotaped beating were not hiding their affiliation with the show when they posted bail.
Dr Phil
Our sources say the production assistant (Mikey) who flaunted his "exclusive" with Mercades Nichols outside court, along with a female producer, went to the bail bondsman and made it clear they were representing the show. They posted $3,300 bail -- 10% of the total amount.

The show claims the producers exceeded their authority. We're guessing Mikey -- who makes around $800 a week -- didn't personally pay that kind of jack.

We've also learned the show did not post collateral for the entire $33,000 -- someone not connected with the show did that.

CrabbGolightly.com says:

WHILE MANY AMERICANS WHO SNACK ON REALITY TV have only come to know the offering since being added to the prime time menu, savvy couch potatoes recognize that the form has long been a daytime staple.
Crabby had her own foray in talk TV, and toward the end of my stint, I worried that we'd soon be videotaping murders. That's because every "next show" had to evoke more shock, awe, sorrow, shame, joy or delight than the last one. The environment was 24/7 of fever-pitch for more, better, faster. And if you didn't deliver, well then, you failed. Because the viewers -- and the staff -- had already heard the one about the dog who saved his master from the fire, or about the grandfather who took snapshots of his grandkid naked, or the couples' swapping partners, or mothers who trashed their newborns. And so you better have something even more incredulous today than you did yesterday.
So it seems a little disingenuous that Dr. Phil's has suddenly been fingered as sleazeball? Have you people been snoozing?

Isnt it about time that Oprah fires his ass? I get her magazine and when I see the WANNA BE A DR Phil's photo I feel sick- doesnt she know that the "value" of her magazine goes down when a slimy snake oil- like salesman is attached to it?

That is disgusting and appaling that they would spring that girl from jail where she BELONGS. There's no way that one lowly assistant got that cash on his own & paid for it. I'm sure Dr. Phil arranged it himself. I'll never watch that show again. Might even boycott Oprah too!!

Wow . Anything for ratings. Now I just personally think he is a sick son of a bitch...Perfect example of why this country is in such disrepair.....
I have only one thing to say to "Dr" Phil.... Karma - I know it's only a little word - but it usually packs a BIG punch.... let's see how great he feels when these littel bitches run roughshod all over him! Ridiculous

The worst thing about this case is that those "girls" are not facing the death penalty for their animal-like attacks --- in a perfect world they wd be facing just that. Dr. Phil shd have his show cancelled immediately. They ought to put each of those girls, who think they are so tough, in various prisons throughout the state, away from their other pig cohorts, in gen pop --- let's see how tough they are then when the regular genpop women get a hold to them. Shame on Dr, Phil and his whole show for aiding a CRIMINAL.
