Dr. Phil booed at George Michael concert

Dr. Phil and his wife, Robyn, were in the front row at a George Michael concert in LA on Wednesday night when Michael took the opportunity to point him out to the crowd. He mentioned that it might be a cruel thing to do, but he went ahead and did it anyway. Michael told the crowd that Dr. Phil looked “miserable,” and people starting booing. When the TV “doctor’s” scowling face was shown on the Jumbotron the booing got louder:

About midway into the first hour of his performance, Michael took the opportunity between songs to chuckle to himself and murmur teasingly, “…No this is too mean.” He then smiled wickedly and proceeded to announce that television therapist Dr. Phil McGraw was present in the audience. After a smattering of applause some of the crowd started to boo. Only spurring the singer on, he mentioned that Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, seemed to be having a good time but, “…in the sea of smiling faces, he’s looked miserable for the last hour.”

The house camera then managed to get an shot of Dr. Phil, indeed looking on with a scowl and more than a little bit non-plussed. The crowd proceeded to boo even louder.

With an impish look, Michael looked right at the cranky Texan and offered, “You should see someone about that!” With thunderous applause, Michael went on pleasing the rest of the ecstatic crowd for the rest of his 140-minute concert.

Dr. Phil and Robyn are featured this week on the cover of my favorite gossip magazine, The National Enquirer, which declares “Dr. Phil’s wife kicks him out!” The accompanying story isn’t that explosive though, and just says they’re having problems. Robyn is said to have kicked Phil out when they had an argument about some new plastic surgery she wanted to have. She was trying to talk to Phil about her concerns about it, but all he wanted to know was how much it was going to cost him. She kicked him out supposedly, but the story doesn’t specify for how long and he’s now back at home.

Dr. Phil is desperate to save his marriage, the Enquirer claims, and has offered Robyn a producer’s credit on “The Dr. Phil Show” along with saying he’ll do whatever it takes to make things work. It sounds like that includes sitting through George Michael concerts, although D-Listed reports that Phil and Robyn left the show soon after Michael publicly called them out.

Dr. Phil and Robyn are shown below at the Academy Of Country Music Awards on 5/18/08, thanks to PRPhotos. Also shown is the cover of The National Enquirer, available on news stands now.

    I am reasonably sure George Michael should not be casting stones….

    she knows which side her bread’s buttered on

  3. Baluk says:

    It looks to me she’s addicted to plastic surgery…and that wouldn’t be good for Dr Phil’s credit if he has any left! 🙄

    I am rather curious about how to feed my family of 5 for 10 $ thanks to coupons

  5. xiaoecho says:

    I never noticed, her eyes are as close together as his are

  6. Kevin says:

    On the flip side, george michael hand churns his own butter. (in public, no less) He should see someone about that.

  7. Banana Boat says:

    He’s a fraud. I love when he thunders the catch phrase ‘GET RRR-REAL! TIME TO GIT REAL!” and the feckless bastard he’s ‘counseling’ wrings their hands and looks oddly penitent.

    Anyway, it would be funny if they split. These self anointed experts who tell people how to live (and make scads of money doing it in the self help market) are not the ones with all the answers.
    John Gray, another one like him (but with an actual degree I think) also got divorced and he writes those Mars Venus nightmares.

    Her eyebrows are a disaster.
    That look might work on Joan Collins honey, but you are no Joan Collins.

  9. xxx says:

    Lol @ George Michael’s sinister side, that little devil 😈

  10. xiaoecho says:

    CB Rawks….her eybrows are too wide apart….and while I’m picking her to bits her eyes are not only close together but really small

    Is his fly undone –what’s that red thing?

    To think they’re breeding more up like themselves— save us 😥

    I was at this concert and sitting pretty close to Dr. Phil and Robin. Robin obviously was the fan and Phil was jusr standing there like a bump. However, George did single him out and it was funny and I honestly don’t think he intended to embarass him or to get him booed. After the first round of boos he tried to keep things funny with the “you should see someone” comment but then he got booed again. As for them leaving, they did leave after the first encore, more than likely to avoid traffic, which BTW sucks gettting in/out of the Forum. The show actually started 45-50 minutes late due to traffic issues. I do have to say, if you get a chance to see George, the show was Great and this audience was alot of fun 🙂

    way to go George!

  13. Nan says:

    My Mom was right…he is a phony hillbilly.

  14. Jess says:

    I hate Dr. Phil but also low class of George.

  15. axhandlebill says:

    Being of somewhat of sound mind like Dr. Phil, I think its OK for Robyn to kick his Ugly puss out the door once in awhile . That way it gives him more time out with the guys. you know going to a bar and crying in yer beer thing. then the next day go back crawling like a worm, which he is.

  16. jvon says:

    I think any heterosexual male who goes to a George Michael concert deserves to get his face up on the Jumbotron.

  17. nunyaa says:

    George Michael is a has-been, past his use by date, or someone else’s.

  18. wangchung2nite says:

    I’d throw it in Robyn once or twice, she’s a milf. Phil on the other hand is a douche. George Michael, despite being a has been and a sicko, did the public well in humiliating that arrogant bastard. If you ever watch Phil on Letterman you’ll hear all about his giant yacht trips to Europe and all his rich crap. 🙄

  19. Susannah says:

    I thought it was funny what George Michael did ( i was there booing too) Cause DR. Phil is a phony!!! lol You go George!!! George was fantastic by the way!

  20. Anthony says:

    I agree with Jess, very low class of George. It ‘d be interesting to see how he would feel if someone else did that to him. Or if they exposed some preciously guarded secret of his in front of the whole wide world…
