    “I’ve never talked to a guest that’s closer to death than this one [so I simply MUST exploit him for ratings!!!].

  2. Steve says

    I am not sure what’s sadder – Todd’s addiction or that he (or someone in his family) thought seeking help from ‘Doctor’ Phil was a good idea.

    I hate to sound callous. Reality show start, goes to another reality show to keep himself relevant.

    If that’s what one looks like so close to death we’ve all got one leg and a nut sack in the coffin.

    Dr Phil must have little experience with close to death instances. Perhaps he needs to go to a hospital, or a night shelter or a bar. Idiot.

  5. Eric says

    Hasn’t Dr. Phil actually had guests/patients die under his care? If so, then he *has* talked to guests that have been closer to death.

    Money don’t buy happiness, eh? “Reality star” treated by “Reality star doc.”

    If that’s what has to happen, I wish him well. I liked Mr Herzog on Survivor. He could hack some rough stuff.

    Good luck Todd. Once you decide you really need to stop drinking it is easy to do. I stopped successfully 15 years ago.

    Dr. Phil is exploiting him? Um, did Dr. Phil put a gun to this attention seeking whore’s head and made him appear on his show? I say, boo-freaking-hoo. Grow a pair and get help away from the television camera.

    I think his addiction is to reality TV attention. Bromide and Platitude issuer Dr. Phil will only be too happy to help w/ that.

    I am dismayed at some of the negative comments here. I watch the Dr. Phil show. He is an excellent psychologist. He has helped a lot of people, both on and off screen. Quite often, the family of someone in serious crisis petitions the show to get help for their loved ones. I hope that this young man gets the help he needs. I strongly doubt that someone who is falling all over himself because of acute alcohol intoxication would choose to put himself on national television merely to gain
    publicity. Dr. Phil certainly has the resources that will help him, and I hope he gets it.

    At the risk of sounding callous, I can’t resist paraphrasing the old adage – live by the Reality TV, die by the Reality TV. Can some of his problems be attributed, I have to ask, to having the unhappy details of his personal life exposed to the entire world? Well, to the viewers of Survivor & Dr. Phil, at least. I’ll admit that I watch Dr. Phil with the same fascinated horror with which one watches a train wreck, & he definitely does a lot of good. Having said that, I could be wrong, but I don’t remember him ever broaching gay issues.

    Dr. Phil is very supportive of gay people. Here is a link to a page on his website which discusses this:

    He should have went to celebrity rehab with Dr. Drew instead of on Dr. Phil. At least Dr. Drew is a real doctor, and he could have hung out with Tan Mom, and Janice Dickinson. Yeah, she’s always in rehab since she needs a place to live.

  15. kevstar says

    Dr. Phil doesn’t go to them. They write to him. I can’t believe how judgemental a lot of gay queens are. Calling this guy a fame whore for seeking help? You bitches should look at your own lives, trolling the Internet looking for hook,ups with total strangers and having unprotected sex! LMAO!

  16. Shane says

    Thank You Kevstar!

    It’s astounding how self-righteous some of these comments are! Cold and unfeeling to another human being in pain. Yet, you’d have many of the same condemning those “religious” people that are just as cold and uncaring towards gays that suffer and are in pain.

    I’ve been through this before and understand what Todd is going through. I hope that he takes what he learns in rehab and stays sober. Its a difficult thing to do but it can be done with the right help.
