    Dr Phil and his Diet: Class Action Lawsuit

    Three unhappy customers suing TV psychologist "Dr. Phil" McGraw over his now discontinued Shape Up! diet plan have asked that the case be given national class-action status to include thousands of potential plaintiffs.

    The Superior Court suit was filed last year claiming McGraw defrauded fans with his yearlong venture into the diet supplement business.

    A judge could rule on the request for class-action status early next year.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Taking weight loss tips from Dr. Phil would be like going to a drug rehab started by Courtney Love. Anyone in their right mind could look at the dude and figure out that he knows ziltch about weight loss.

    I haven't heard or read that anywhere. I can't find anything online, either. Not to say I'd put it past him.

    This was posted on Jossip last month:

    Dr. Phil blew up backstage at David Letterman when producers informed him he'd play second fiddle to U.S. Open champ Roger Federer. He obviously didn't have one of his self-help books on hand.

    This lawsuit reminds of the one where people tried to sue the fast food industry for making them obese - or the smokers who try to sue the tobacco industry for giving them lung cancer.

    Wonder if anyone has sued because they sit/sat too long at their computers participating in Message Boards giving them back aches, broad asses, vision problems, weight gain or becoming too informed & intelligent

    I can't blame Dr. Phil for my internet addiction but I do think that if I search long and hard enough I will find someone to sue. Maybe Bill Gates as he has a lot of money and Windows is his baby The good Lord knows I could use a few extra bucks in my pocket
