Dr. Phil to McCready: Let Me Make You a TV Star

7/25/2008 1:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mindy and Dr. PhilCountry wreck Mindy McCready's trip to Dr. Phil-approved rehab comes with an added bonus -- a spot on Dr. Phil's couch.

While there were conflicting reports as to whether McCready was in rehab for addictions or for psychiatric issues, a source close to Mindz tells us she is at a Texas center that specializes in both drug addiction and mental health issues. Two for one.

We're told Dr. Phil set the whole thing up and will pop in to see her in a week or so. McCready will spend a total of 30 days at the facility and her rehabilitation will culminate with the taping of an in-studio appearance on "The Dr. Phil Show." Our sources tell us Mindy will attempt to explain how she doesn't think she has a problem. She's tellin' the story.

Best of luck, Mindy! Let's see you turn things around, come out with a great song and give folks something to write about other than you being a mess! You made it once, you can do it again (but for heaven's sake, stay away from Dr. Phil... what a parasite. First Britney and now Mindy? Yikes!)

Mindy McCready should be thanking her lucky drunk stars that Dr. Phil is helping her ungrateful sorry ass out. Who throws away the gift she's been given to live such a trashy existence? GROW UP and get you Sh*t together.

Duh!    

Phil "Jerry Springer" McGraw is a hack. What use to be a semi-legitimate practice and show has turned into a freak show. Nobody is better off with his help.

Mindy McCready is a perfect example of the "use and toss away" attitude of the music industry. When you're hot, everyone wants a piece of you. As soon as your numbers slip, you're tossed aside like last week's garbage. I've always felt sorry for this girl - she's probably not that educated, and she didn't have the best of childhoods, including the part where a much-older man (probably one of several) took advantage of her. She's also got substance abuse problems, and probably wasn't mentally tough enough to take the industry's rejection. Plus, she's got a little boy, but she's so mired in her own self-esteem and addiction issues to pull herself together for him. Good for Dr. Phil - he's willing to help her, and there aren't too many people out there (including her own family) who seem interested in doing that anymore. She's got a chemical imbalance and her kid is paying the price. I hope that Dr Phil can help her - she (and her son) deserve a happy, healthy "ever after."

How sad. An unfortunate desperate enough to let the good Dr Phil exploit her all in the good name of ratings. Shame shame shame sheame shame.
