Dr. Phil Was Fed Up With Guest’s Drama So He Abruptly Ended the Interview and Asked Her to Leave
There are two types of people in this world: those who love Dr. Phil and those who think the TV psychologist is a complete quack. Personally speaking, we’re not entirely sure what to make of the man; on one hand, he is endorsed by Oprah (the woman can do no wrong, folks!), BUT he is also the man who made the ‘Cash Me Outside Girl’ a worldwide sensation.
A bit of a tough call, isn’t?
While it may be difficult to make heads or tails of the television doctor’s true intentions, the guy is, undebatably, entertaining. One of the things that makes him so fascinating is his rapport with his guests, a quality that is part the harshness of Judge Judy and part the warmth of Ellen DeGeneres. That tough-love approach has gained him plenty of popularity–and, occasionally, even a viral moment.
Take today’s clip, for instance. In it, we are introduced to a guest named, Bailey, a 21-year-old who appears to be in need of some serious psychological help. According to the young woman, she is in the middle of a very serious love affair with another young lady by the name of Jasmine. She refers to Jasmine as being the “love of her life.” Everything seems normal enough–until you take into account that the two women have never even MET before.
Oh, yeah, and then there’s the fact that Jasmine is totally freaked out and confused by this online stranger falling in love with her. AND, the fact that Bailey claims to communicate with Jasmine telekinetically.
But, believe it or not, those claims are not the things that have helped Bailey gain her viral status. As it turns out, Bailey was also exhibiting diva-like antics both on and off-camera that rubbed Dr. Phil the wrong way. It all started when the young woman publicly called out a producer for lying to her about the guest roster, an accusation that inspired the TV star to invite the producer on the show to set the record straight.
On top of that, Dr. Phil started to question his guest about the authenticity of her claims of telepathy and other odd behavior. Though he didn’t say it outright, it was clear that the host smelled a rat–and he didn’t like it one bit. Once he began to question her, Bailey was particularly defensive, so much so that she even proceeded to speak straight to the audience members, accusing them of doubting her story.
Being the straight-shooter he is, Dr. Phil was having none of her antics. He told her that she was exhibiting melodramatic tendencies and politely–yet firmly–told her to exit the stage.
Who knew Dr. Phil could be so savage?! Although we do feel for Bailey on this one (there’s something not right with this young woman!), we do see the Doctor’s point; in order to receive help, she must accept it first.
Now that you know a bit of the backstory, it’s time for you to watch the dramatic TV moment for yourself. To see Dr. Phil kick a guest off his own show, be sure to watch the video below!
