First Kim Richards and now this!
Dr. Phil's talk show has basically become a platform for him to hold interventions for stars in need this year, and it seems like he just had another blowup.
That's because Nicholas Brendon stopped by the show on Wednesday to talk about his three arrests this year as well as his stint in rehab, but felt attacked by the TV personality from the very start!
Apparently, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor says that he felt like Dr. Phil simply wanted ratings, and even issued a statement on his exit, saying:
"My illnesses and addictions are a daily struggle for me, and I am committed to working on them for the rest of my life. A big part of that is focusing on positivity.
I'm the first to admit I've messed up, a lot, and I've hurt people I care about and who care about me. When I was in that seat, I felt that Dr. Phil went for the jugular, talking about some of my recent mistakes, with no build up. I felt that he wanted me to lay the darkest parts of myself on national TV right from the start, and I'm not willing to do that."

However, Nicholas did thank Dr. Phil for his work helping people with issues, as well:
"I want to acknowledge all the good Dr. Phil has done for people, famous or not. His production has spent millions on helping people turn their lives around."
Well it's nice to cover your bases, but we're sorry you felt so uncomfortable!
Maybe that's why Nicholas wanted Dr. Drew's help in the first place…
Get well soon, Nicky!
