Dr. Phil And Wife Robin Sued For Fraud!!! Schemed To Avoid Payment!

We all know the Dr. Phil show has rapidly gone downhill, but we had no idea his integrity was also plummeting!

Dr. Phil McGraw and wife, Robin, are being sued by former employees Deborah Flattery and Brynja McGrady for alleged fraud, breach of contract and several other doozies!

The duo, under the name Flattery Concepts and Designs, had a 5-year long business relationship with the McGraws, performing duties such as home design, event planning, makeovers, attending medical/dental appointments, scriptwriting and even promoting their son's band.

How multipurpose!

In January 2006, Robin promised Flattery and McGrady that if they developed a skin care line, she would make sure it was featured on the Dr. Phil show.

The pair created Miracle Hydrate, a line of products in which Robin had a tremendous amount of input due to her influence.

After countless out-of-pocket expenses and empty promises over the course of a year, Miracle Hyrate would be featured on the Dr Phil Christmas Special.

The day before the expected appearance, Robin informed Flattery and McGrady their product would not be featured and would be replaced with the products of close friend and esthetitician Janet Harris.

As if Robin's secret is an esthetician! Bitch has had serious work done!

Mrs. McGraw soon began to avoid contact with the pair and began to convey messages through text messages from her assistant.

Apparently, the McGraws have a habit of creating issues to escape paying vendors for services.

El Lay dentist Dr. Eddie Simon was promised an appearance on Dr Phil or The Doctors along with a joint European family vacation in exchange for extraordinary home dental services.

After treating the McGraws, his appearance was canceled and Simon showed up with his family in Europe only to be stood up.

The family had a similar situation with a company who agreed to remodel their home. When the job turned out more costly than expected, Robin decided to hide the excess workers necessary, suggesting that they sneak in and out of the house to avoid being seen by Phil. Then, the family proceeded to accuse them of improper billing practices.

Just the people to preach about marriage and self improvement!!!

Robin has even publically taken credit for the plaintiff's home and office designs featured in People and Ladies Home Journal.

The plaintiff is claiming out of pocket expenses of $650,000 and project benefits of appearing on the show at $4 million.

People are never what they seem!

    Where's the proof they were "promised". Dr. Phil promised to buy me a new house and car, I think I'll sue.



  8. 8

    Dr. Phil is a huge douche and I thought this was well-known for years



  9. 9

    I have always HATED this phony!! I hope they win their lawsuit.



  10. 10

    Also heard Dr. Phil wasn't really a doctor. He should put this rumor to rest or his popularity will continue to plummet.



  11. 11

    greedy wannabes.



  12. 12

    I can't stand "Dr" Phil.



  13. 13

    I HATE DR PHIL he is such a douche



  14. 14

    Last week I was at my library and there on the shelf was a book by Dr.Phil about diet, exercise and nutrition. I couldn't believe my eyes. This bloated guy looks like he's 300 lbs and he wrote a book about diet and exercise?



  15. 15

    Never liked him.
    Never watched.



  16. 16

    I am surprised Dr. Phil wasn't 'assisting' Michael Jackson…after all, he is one shady guy



  17. 17

    I hope this story is true and I hope Flattery Concepts win their lawsuit.
    The McGraws are obnoxious phonies without real credentials or talent.



  18. 18

    Wow, they sound like real crooks….. disgusting.

    Re: SWEETPIECE! – Hi Sweetpiece. Did you read the whole thing? They are total frauds and thieves!

    There's no doubt in my mind that these two know how to work it, but they get their day in court like everybody else, and in America you're innocent until proven otherwise. The owness is upon the plaintiff to substantiate these claims.
    If they're bona fide, the McGraws will eventually have to cough it up. Get agreements in writing, boys and girls.

    Re: UrMajestyMsG – #4 HE SHOULD CHANGE HIS NAME TO DR.DOUCHE!…..MORE FITTING!

    Re: SWEETPIECE! – Hi, S.P. Your av inspired me to finally put up my own, but it hasn't bee 24 hrs yet. I'm hoping it can still be made out in a little square…we shall see.



  24. 24

    Hmmm… Wonder why I see no one complaining about the way he spells "El Lay" since apparently I am such a dumb bitch for not realizing that even though I read his site several times a day "everyone is annoyed by it". Seriously there are worse things that happen in the world one could choose to be bothered by.

    Anyway, I thought Phil & Robin's 15 minutes were up looooong ago. Do they even have enough to cover these suits?



  25. 25

    they're conservative Republican Christians who supported Bush. What can you ex[ect? The Republican rich get to F**K those below them.

    Re: soccer mom – Guess what he lived in my town and his ex wife is still here! No I do not watch him.

    A cople of months ago I read this article on a Dutch news site saying Phil is a real ***hole during taping the show. It said he doesn't speak to guests during comercial breaks and stuff and the "pretty" people are seated at front rows.

    Anyway, whenever it's on I always get the feeling he's just sooooooooooooo conservative. I dunno how u americans feel? Is he, and is show, liked and respected by alot of Americans?
    But I guess I compare what he says with the way of living here in The Netherlands..

    Re: Paris France – Hi Sheba. You have crooks in Missouri also? :-D I left you a message on Jessica Biel diet post.



  29. 29

    GOOD. ANOTHER COUPLE THAT NEEDS TO GO DOWN! SHE'S JUST AS FAKE AS HER HUSBAND.



  30. 30

    Re: Babss – I'm from US and no one I know likes or respects Dr.Phil. I can't wait for this fraud to be dragged down from his pedestal.



  31. 31

    I love how they try to claim Robin's looks are natural. It's so obvious she's had a lot of work done on her face (if not the rest of her)

    Re: SHITNEY SHITNEY – I HAVE TO AGREE #22



  33. 33

    Verbal contracts are valid Mc. Kenzie. That's learned the first day of law school and should be something the general public should know too.



  34. 34

    Re: jessicka – #24 you were the one who jumped on that others persons shit for being sarcastic about Perez.they said nothing to you .So i have to agree with them for telling you to go fu@k yourself.



  35. 35

    i thought Phil made big bucks from this show (i just say Phil cuz i dont consider him a "doctor") i mean according to forbes magazine he's made like approximately 450 million from his show and some other stuff so if he has to go to court i dont think they'll have a problem with the finances. btw did any of u guys know that his contract states that if his show is on another station, it cannot air at the same time as Oprah…



  36. 36

    I don't like her face work, fake nails, striped hair and fakey everything! she just looks so plastic.

    And what's with all these people who do things "in exchange for being featured on…"? Why not just do what you do, take your payment, and go about your business? That's what being in a business is about. Not payola and media promotion.

    Is that show still on the air? People still watch?

    Re: contrarianchick – We don't have to like her; Phil has to like her. I don't mind her. What I'm starting to mind is all of the nepotizing familial promotion of her books, his books, their kid's books, his mentor's everything, their friends businesses, and it just goes on and on and on. They'll need to spread it around a little more if they wish to still be considered objective and fair. People roll their eyes if you're too much of a self-promoting schill, and then it has the opposite effect of reducing sales. IMHO. Their values regarding problem solving can be pretty solid. I like how he thinks, and prefer straight shooters.



  38. 38

    I have always been able to see what fake heinous right wing American vampires these two are…eeew…they are like those Southern church goers who are the most evil people that hide behind their 'religion'.

    Re: soccer mom – Hey I got it. But, diabetes is something I have to live with for the rest of my life. Luck of the draw. I feel for the youngest Jonas brother he has it worse than me. Thank god I don't have to
    diet. I can eat whatever. At 118 and 5'9 I am alright. I just need to eat more.



  40. 40

    dr quack, I presume…..



  41. 41

    As I have been saying for several years now, DR. PHIL IS A NUT.



  42. 42

    Yes, he is a doctor. They laugh at all of your insecure, unfounded, speculations and lies. How jealous are you people anyway?



  43. 43

    They've obviously become greedy disgusting people. Their world is slowing imploding on itself. I can't beleive anyone watches his show anymore. It's so fake it's just painful to watch.



  44. 44

    Karalyn honey……..he is not a doctor at all. He has NO SUCH DEGREE> He merely calls himself a doctor and everyone take it for granted that he is one. Check your facts dear.



  45. 45

    duh, this is how the rich get richer. they have no accountability and they steam roll people into getting what they want. they don't actually care about anything unless it's a benefit to themselves. shady people! I hope they get what they deserve in the end.



  46. 46

    Re: bottle head – OOH, hey. You know what? Since NO ONE can do it quite like I can I just might take the advice of both of you. I don't really consider that an insult. I consider that permission ;)



  47. 47

    These two are so phony & he is such a pompous asshole. oh & by the way Philip. Physician heal thyself.



  48. 48
