A California couple were sent to prison after boasting on the Dr. Phil show about shoplifting Legos and selling them on the internet. The judge also blamed Phil, who she called a "charlatan," and a "terrible, terrible man."
Besides handing down the jail sentences to the couple, District Judge Irma Gonzalez took on Phil.
First she went off on McGraw, the TV psychologist who dispenses help on his syndicated show with such catchphrases as the sharp "Get real!" the disdainful "How's that working for you?" and the unusual "Did you fall out of the dumb tree?"
Gonzalez was perturbed that McGraw holds himself out as a doctor wishing to help. But, the judge said to Matthew Eaton, "he obviously didn't help you."
