Natalee Holloway's disappearance was tragic, there is no arguing that.
Two men implicated in the Holloway case on Dr. Phil's show are now locked in a legal battle with CBS and Dr. Phil for defamation.
Dr. Phil's team has tried to block the two men, brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe, from getting Natalee Holloway's mom to testify about what she knows about the motives and the goings on behind the scenes of that particular show's production.
The brothers claim:
[…] the show "was deceptively clothed as an investigative piece looking into the disappearance of [Natalee]" but was "in reality an abhorrent example of manufactured media sensationalism at its worst."
Well, it seems to have worked out in the favor for the brothers so far, as a judge has just allowed the deposition of Natalee's mom.
We're torn on this, because if Dr. Phil's show did in fact have implicative motives towards innocent men, then that's just not awesome at all and their lives really could have suffered because of it.
But if these men are truly guilty even though there isn't enough evidence to charge them (they were two of three people last seen with Natalee), then they're using an innocent girl's life that they took as a way to make money, right in front of everyone, and that is truly despicable in so many ways.
Our thoughts still go out to Natalee's family for their loss.
Do U think Dr. Phil's show was in the wrong, or are these brothers just trying to make some money??
