Dr. Phil sued for ‘brainwashing’

October 8th, 2009 // 29 Comments

Dr. Phil is being sued for allegedly brainwashing a woman then touching her left boob, according to People:

Shirley Rae Dieu, 56, of Irvine, Calif., claims she was seeking therapy from Dr. Phil in his Hollywood office in 2007 when she allegedly was held captive and “forced to be in the same room with a completely live naked man while he exposed his entire naked body, genitals and all,” according to her filing.
Dieu further alleges she was deprived of sleep and food, “brainwashed” and “subjected to edited tapings depicting her as a different personality other than her own.” On Oct. 9, 2007, she claims Dr. Phil touched her left breast during a therapy session.

It should be noted that Shirley has a history of suing hospitals and car dealerships plus she’s acting as her own attorney. That being said, would anyone really be surprised to find out Dr. Phil was conducting kinky psychological experiments that involved breast grabbing? That’s kind of the whole point of getting a degree in psychology in the first place. Human experiments – with boob grabbing.

  5. I’d like to hear all the exact details so I can re-enact this scene with a hooker and a hobo in a seedy hotel room.

  6. This guy can be annoying, but I don’t believe that BS for a minute. Neither should any of you lol. Why would he go for one boob when he could go for both? =)

    Dr. Phil doesn’t actually have a degree in psychology at any level. He’s not a Doctor at all in fact. Last I checked he’s got some sketchy relationship counseling certificate from who knows where. At the very least he’s a quack but I think torture and brain washing is a little extreme.

    During a similar experiment I was compelled to grab the left boob of a wire monkey.

    Bizarre people deserve one another.

    Yeah… I don’t think so.

    Dr. Phil is very well known in his profession, well respected as well as viewed by millions of people world wide. His knowledge in psychology, experimental psychology and clinical psychology leads his field.

    To think he would toss it all away for a peak-a-boo grab on a 56 year old is absurd.

    Think about this before you go to sleep tonight:

    “a completely live naked Dr. Phil while he exposes his entire naked body, genitals and all”

    Good night.

    Guess he’ll have to change his name to “Dr Pheel”.

    Oh and I forgot to mention.

    The fabulous Dr.Phil has seen both Spencer Pratt and I. He stressed to Spencer that it is OK for me to be on top during sex as long as he is the one penetrating the anus. He has done wonders for our sex life.

    Hahah I’ve been waiting for something like this.

    Too bad it seems like this woman is full of it.

  15. So Right

    Pay attention, people. This woman is obviously severely mentally ill, if she’s suing everybody in town and making false accusations. This is a very serious accusation. If she’s lying, she should be locked up. I am a mental health professional and I’ll tell you what —- this type of person is my nightmare. They can screw up a person’s life in a second flat with lies, and that is NOT RIGHT!

    oh? this is weird

    You’re a fucking moron. Go suck Dr. Phil’s dick in private, not on the message boards.

  18. fat guy in little shirt

    hahahahahah hahahhh hhaaaa too much! hAHAHHHAHHhahhaaa

    Dr. Phil has always cut a fine figure of what a big American man should look like. Dressed like a million and penetrating gaze, peering intellect, caring heart. I would let him ravage my rectum all night .
    I would run a nice warm bath with soap bubbles. I would turn over and beg him to lather my small hairy ass cheeks with a wash cloth soaked in tobasco sauce. Then I would purr my way into getting him to lick it off! He would carry my thin, pasty little body into the basement and while away the hours in a circus of man on man lovemaking!

    I bet you Dr Phil pointed out she was wrong and the problems she’s having are of her own making – so she lost it and make up a story because someone needs to be blamed for her problems and it’s not her! (It’s the American way…)

    The #19 comment by Randal is the best I have ever read.

  22. Money grubber

    There’s no way he did this. She’s just trying to make money.

    I love you randal!

    Brainwashing? Now I know how Obama got the Nobel Prize for doing nothing.
    This prize should be renamed the Neville Chamberlain Naive Wimp Award. The bad guys are just licking their chops over the left’s self-congratulatory stupidity. Tell me he was on that plane with Michelle and Oprah…

  25. Rhialto

    First of all,which sane human being is seeking therapy from a tv-talkshow host?

  26. Darth

    Did he treat her for frigidity?

  27. Gando

    Normally icy cold baths are being part of this therapy as well.

  28. not that i believe he did it, but in this picture he does look like a left boob grabber

  29. “forced to be in the same room with a completely live naked man”

    Completely LIVE? What a nightmare! Better if there was some gangrene or frostbite.

    Is she sure she wasn’t at a Thomas Kinkade signing?

    “In sworn testimony and interviews, they recount incidents in which an allegedly drunken Kinkade heckled illusionists Siegfried & Roy in Las Vegas, cursed a former employee’s wife who came to his aid when he fell off a barstool, and palmed a startled woman’s breasts at a signing party in South Bend, Ind.

    And then there is Kinkade’s proclivity for “ritual territory marking,” as he called it, which allegedly manifested itself in the late 1990s outside the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim.”
