Clayton says he likes the rolls on his wife’s 300-pound body and loves to watch her butt jiggle. Phillip likes women who are at least 250 pounds, but his twin brother says he is embarrassing the family.
That's curious, I would normally think going on the Dr. Phil show would make the problem go away- I mean after it's been on national television it's old news so it's hardly embarrassing anymore.

Yes, this is all well and good, but you can bet the farm that Quick-judge McGraw will be bringing up the health angle and maybe even plug something weight-loss related. And even if he doesn't, I bet he's more backhanded with his quips than Dr. Ablow was.

Remember, this is the man whose methods have already been seriously called into question. He has called many people "fat pigs" and when they don't accept his cookie cutter solutions, and dispute his "wisdom", he stops tape, rewinds, throws them out and puts someone else in their place.

Yeah, McGraw is a pompous jerk. This show may not be much of a pleasure to watch but you never know.

I normally stay clear of the Dr. Spiel Show but I am interested to see if he drops hints about healthy living and if fat people need to lose weight to be healthy. I def will watch it to see how he approaches loving some chub!!

The only episode of Dr. Phil I liked was the one where his wife came on the show and shut him down. I'm looking for the link NOW...hmmm, apparently it is temporarily down...I'll be back...I know it is on youtube somewhere...

Actually, no, they don't need to bring the MILLIONS of fat-hating hordes from Dr. Philland to Dimensions... it's a suck idea.

If you want to go post, fine, but leading huge forums of generally fat-unfriendly people back here to Dimensions has historically proven to be a horrible, horrible idea.

Just sayin'.

People are such media whores. We all want to have our shining moment in the idiot box broadcast all over national TV even if its at the expense of our loved ones or our peers. I was going to ask the question "What person in the SA community would be so clueless as to appear on the Dr. Phil show and not realize they are going to be exploited to the max?", but then I recall being invited on a morning radio show assuming the hosts had a legit respect for me as an artist of fat women. Little did I realize I was being fed as fodder to a couple moronic shock jocks. Only difference was I didn't have a clue of that radio show's topical format. We all know Dr. Phil exploits, belittles, sensationalizes and hates not only fat people and FAs but anyone society deems as "unusual". When his show isn't being freakishly voyeuristic it's being a social sideshow.

The person who rapes his bassett hound will be the person who has champagne and a limo waiting for him in front of his house courtesy of Dr. Phil.

I'm no Phil-fan, but let's be fair. Where did you hear this? I cannot imagine him - or ANY television personality - calling anyone a 'fat pig'.

There's plenty of facts to use for ammunition against Dr Phil, without making stuff up.

You're right. I remember seeing it on Dimensions forum, but perhaps it was the old forum, or perhaps someone edited their message after I read it, because it is no longer there.
BUT, here is what I have found:

Conceivably, he could have used the phrase "fat pig" there.

Doesn't sound very fat-friendly to me. The rest of the posts are 99% anti-fat and go on about the health risks as if they were unhealth certainties.

I just got done watching it here, and I may perhaps be in the minority with my opinion. I expected it to be a whole lot more negative than it was, and I think it had some positive messages. I actually found myself agreeing with Dr Phil on a few things, which surprised me. I think the first couple has issues which far outweigh their weight issues. The look on Dr Phil's face when the husband made the comment about baldness was priceless. The ladies and gentleman from Club Bounce represented the community very well. I was in awe of Lisa Marie and Cher, what beautiful women!

Was I the only one sitting there, however, silently willing Cher to reach over and smack the living piss out of Paul?

I watched. While I'm not a big fan of the good doctor - I didn't think it was all that bad. I agree that the couple probably has other issues besides their weight. And if she wants to lose and Dr Phil wants to help - hey, go for it. But I don't think he represented fat people or the 'sub-culture' (as he he put it) in a particularly bad light.

And yeah, I wanted the two ladies from Club Bounce to give that ignorant boy a lesson or two on fat women - but he obviously wasn't even worth the effort.
