"Dr. Phil" Triggers Seizure

3/31/2009 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A couple who went on "Dr. Phil" to confess to their shoplifting lifestyle just got their home raided by cops -- we're thinking they should be imprisoned for felony dumb.

Dr Phil

The San Diego Regional Fraud Task Force seized toys, a car and other stuff from Laura and Matthew Eaton's home. Cops were on the hunt for the pilfered items which the couple says were worth around $100,000 a year.

During the "Dr. Phil" special, the Eatons allowed cameras to film them hitting up 27 stores on a three-day, $5,000 shoplifting extravaganza. The U.S. Secret Service confirmed to the The North County Times that a search warrant was issued last Thursday, but no arrests have been made.

Fact is, this was so yesterday -- the show aired during November sweeps. Phil's March book is all about OctoMom -- investigate her!

Wow    

Hey, J, keep your stupid partisan comments to yourself. Republicans pay for their purchases, their healthcare, their children, their homes, I could go on and one. As far as this Einstein couple, they got what they deserve. When others shoplift, all of us have to pay to make up the differnece. I hope they go to jail.

Dr Phil sets up his patients. They try to get help from him and he uses them. Once they tell him what they did, he blackmails them. Either you stay here and tell everyone your humilating problem, or I'll call the cops and turn you in and use everything you told me in confidence to put you in jail. He's not out to help these people, just use them for his show.

Why does anyone listen to Dr. Phil. Look at his son's. One is a lazy, rude spoiled brat. The other married some plastic Playmate. That son tells kids that "inner beauty" is more important. REALLY? And then Dr. Phil does eating disorders for women!! Please. I will take Dr. Drew over Dr. Phil.
