Mindy Goes McCrazy -- Dr. Phil to the Rescue!

7/23/2008 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mindy McCready, Dr PhilMindy McCready is going back to rehab after trying to do herself in with her favorite swiggable and pharmaceutical -- vodka and Ambien -- and we hear Dr. Phil's inserting himself in the whole she-bang.

TMZ has learned the troubled McCready went off the deep end late last week after getting dumped by her boyfriend and collapsed while on the phone with her mother. She downed a bottle of vods and pills in what we're told was a "suicide attempt."

She's headed to Arizona for treatment, and a source says that was all Phil's idea. We're told he's taken Mindy under his wing as a "personal project." As for whether or not she'll be on the show, time will tell.

We contacted Phil -- so far, no answer. Mindy's peeps had no comment.

Candy to Ed McMahon: I'm Losing My House Too

Candy SpellingEven Candy Spelling is feeling the housing crunch -- she's scaling back from the infamous Spelling mansion to a paltry 16,500 square foot penthouse.

Spelling just dropped $47 million (!!!) of her late husband's money on a two-floor condo that is a third of the size of her 56,500 square foot Holmby Hills estate. The apartment is located on the 41st and 42nd floors of the brand new Century building and won't be ready until 2009 -- around the time Tori gives birth to her fifth rugrat.


Click to launchCandy is giving up her notorious gift wrapping room, 3,500 square foot closet and bowling alley and making do with the condo's two fireplaces, dining room for 25, staff quarters, massage room, rose garden and private swimming pool.

These are tough times, people!

Cash, Money, Moms: Why Bale Was Busted

Christian BaleSources tells TMZ Christian Bale has had a long-standing difficult relationship with his mom and Bale's camp believes the motivation for the whole assault charge may be $$$.

We're told when Christian's mom and dad divorced nearly two decades ago, his mom forced him to choose between the two. Christian picked his dad, and father and son moved out to L.A. in 1992, where his dad became his manager.

Somehow Bale's relationship with the mom has been "bitter" ever since. Bale has told friends his mother was extremely jealous of both his and his dad's success.

Last Sunday, Bale let his mom and sis into his hotel suite, though it was by no means an olive branch. As we first reported, there was physical contact, but somewhere in between a push and a brush. No one fell and no one was hurt.

Christian's camp thinks this could be nothing more than a shakedown. We're told some newspapers and mags have already been throwing around "insane" amounts of money for the story, so mom and sis could score big.

But our sources say the cops are starting to see the whole thing Christian's way, and the charges could disappear faster than Batman.

Grey Mist    

When is someone going to turn ol' phony Phil in for practicing clinical psychology without a license? He a doctor of nothing, but some crappy Phd in education. The man is a phony and has no business pretending to be a shrink. On his show sometimes, he has people with serious emotional and psychological issues and he is just not qualified to give advice and he sure as hell shouldn't explore these issues on TV of all places. The man is a menace and phony and should be sued of the air for fraud.

OH GOOD GRIEF, DON'T bring in Dr. Phil. He isn't even a doctor !!! If he gets involved in this, she'll kill herself for sure !! Phil is a jury consultant that got famous when he helped Oprah win her case against the Texas cattlemen. He is not a doctor and the California Psychiatric Assn looks the other way - he is just "entertainment" on television. The guy is a whack job. Plus, he is absolutely incapable of doing a show without his "mommy", Robin, there. You sure you want to take advice from this boob??

What a joke. Dr Phil isn't even a Dr. He is just a regular slob with no clue. Just because Ophat Winfrey had him on her show numerous times did anybody even know who he was. What a joke. He can't even keep his own house in order and he is going to tell people how to run their lives. pullleeeeeeaaaasssseeee......

This is what is wrong with this country. We think a TV shrink can deal with this. This poor woman needs real help, and not someone who plays the part on TV.

Dr Phil helping anyone but himself is a joke. Much like Oprha his mentor, it started with the Angle network where everyone sent in their money and she gave it away as she saw fit in her name. Now Dr. Phil is as self promoting as she is. How can he help he is not even licensed in California?

How do you "try" to do yourself in? If you decide you're going to kill yourself, well, then do it! If the alternative is to have Dr. Phil, then I'd find the highest bridge and jump. Better that then to have that idiot near me.....

Whatever happened to people being arrested for perpetrating a fraud and racticing medicine without a license??? Dr. Phil is no more a psychologist than Dr Seuss and he should be in jail.

I feel very sorry for this young lady. Apparently she got to her wit's end and most times people just do not understand what that's like until maybe one day, their lives change (and not for the better). I'm not sure turning to Dr. Phil was a great move, but if he managed to talk her into going to a facility, he surely did the right thing. There is always "hope" and I hope this young lady gets the help she needs to realize it. God Bless her.
