The case of the 8 Florida teens that were arrested for beating down a teenager and videotaping it has caught the attention of Dr. Phil. He must be stopped! TMZ reports that Dr. Phil’s show allegedly paid the $30,000 bond of Mercades Nichols. Mercades was reportedly the ring leader and her grandmother recently told reporters that she couldn’t afford her bond. Most of the other teens were also released on bond this Friday night.
A dude from the Dr. Phil show escorted Mercades out of jail last night. He also told reporters to step off, because Dr. Phil had the exclusive rights to the story.
Dr. Phil issued this statement to TMZ and basically blamed it on his staff:
“We have helped guests and potential guests in the past when they need financial assistance to come on the show – assisting with clothing allowance, lost wages, accommodations, travel and necessities. In this case, certain staff members went beyond our guidelines (re: the bail being paid). These staff members have been spoken to and our policies reiterated. In addition, we have decided not to go forward with the story as our guidelines have been compromised.”
Oprah has created a monster! A monster that won’t even accept responsibility for his own stupidity. Dr. Phil needs serious help. He should check into “Celebrity Rehab” for his attention whore disorder. Only Dr. Drew can save him.
