Dr. Phil has been in hot water since he visited Britney Spears in the hospital and made a public statement about her. Looking back, Dr. Phil says he regrets talking to the press about her condition.
He says, "Was it helpful to the situation? Regrettably, no. It was not, and I have to acknowledge that and I do. I definitely think if I had it to do it over again, I probably wouldn't make any statement at all. Period."
At first Dr. Phil said that Britney's mother Lynne is the one who asked him to visit Britney, but then it was reported that he was trying to get Britney and her parents to appear on his TV show, but didn't go over so well. Dr. Phil got so much bad press from his visit that a lot of big named celebrities are now refusing to show up to his big 1,000th Episode Special.
