Dr. Phil had a rather terrifying moment on set Tuesday after a guest on the show threatened to kill herself on camera.
According to reports, the guest was filming a segment where she referenced her criminal past that led to her kids being taken away by child protective services.
We're hearing the woman assumed she was going to receive the audience's support as she struggled to change her life — but that is not what ended up happening.

Apparently, the crowd was so against her that one viewer shouted that she should kill herself… to which she responded, "maybe I will."
That was enough for the show's crew to call 9-1-1 in an effort to protect her, but when police arrived at the studio, they decided she was no real threat to her own well-being.
We're happy this wasn't a real suicide situation, but it really seems like the people over at Dr. Phil need to get their stuff together.
