Dr. Phil & Mrs. Phil Creamed in Skin Care Lawsuit

Dr. Phil has been roped into a $4 million lawsuit -- and it's all over a promise his wife allegedly made to feature some skin care products on her hubby's TV show.

According to a lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Phil's wife Robin promised the Miracle Hydrate skin company that she had enough juice to get Phil to feature their creams and lotions on "The Dr. Phil Show."

The skin company claims they were so fired up about the "promise," they spent $650,000 gearing up for the wave of sales they expected to follow.

Of course, the products were never featured on the show, and the skin care company is pissed -- demanding millions of dollars in lost profits.

Calls to The Doc and his wife have not yet been returned.
