So sad and scary.

Nothing but positive vibes!
Nicholas Brendon, best known for his role as Xander on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, has had quite a rough year.
This year alone the 44-year-old actor split with his wife, Moonda Tee, after only five-months of marriage, opened up about his depression and history of sexual abuse, been arrested several times, entered rehab a couple times already, and very publicly walked off the set of Dr. Phil, after asking the TV host for help.
Sadly it hasn't gotten much better as just this month the Buffy alum was arrested for a public dispute in New York City, and had to address footage that leaked of him publicly attempting suicide.
After these recent events, Brendon checked himself in to a 90-day-treatment program where he's learning to have a positive outlook and realizes that "life is worth living."
Now Nicholas is continuing that positive streak as he released a new statement, regarding what he's going through. He said:
Dr. Phil is getting ready to expose Jared Fogle's disgusting comments to the world.
On Thursday, the talk show host will be sitting down with journalist Rochelle Herman-Walrond, who had secretly recorded conversations with the 37-year-old — in which he reportedly confessed to having sex with minors — and turned the tapes over to the FBI.
The Dr. Phil Show posted a promo for the upcoming episode, in which they will actually play some of the disgusting comments the Subway spokesman allegedly made to the former reporter.
In the brief clip, we can hear Rochelle ask the scandalized figurehead:
"What turns you on the most, the young girls or the young boys?"
It then cuts to his supposed response, which was:
"Both of them do. Both of them."
Take a look at the promo (below):
The doctors agree!
Reporters caught up with the doc on Sunday at LAX airport and asked him to give his two cents on the whole situation. In case you forgot, the NBA star is slowly on the mend after suffering an intense overdose earlier this month.
Dr. Phil seems to support Khloé Kardashian's decision to stay with her estranged husband Lamar Odom as he begins recovering from an intense overdose — but he wasn't afraid to dish out some advice for the reality TV starlet.
While at the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame Awards on Tuesday, the TV personality shared:
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.

Dr. Phil is currently the No. 1 syndicated talk show in America, but solid ratings don't always translate to a lot of good going on behind the scenes.
We're hearing that the CBS Television Distribution series is undergoing a ton of issues with its crew at the moment, and there's even talk of a mutiny arising!
Apparently, the people in charge of the show have been quite cold to their staff this season — and have been trying to pinch pennies without thinking about the consequences.
The first problem reportedly occurred immediately after production returned from its Summer hiatus in September — when the entire Transcription Department was fired with zero warning!
But those weren't the only lay offs — we're hearing
Talk about a tough time.
Nicholas Brendon, former star of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, has had quite a few problems with drugs, alcohol, and arrests in the past.
However, his appearance didn't quite go as planned as he ended up walking off of the show which aired yesterday. The Buffy star was very unhappy with his treatment during the taping of the show and stormed off after Dr. Phil questioned him about his current sobriety.
Brendon was particularly unhappy with the way he claims Dr. Phil talked about his mother specifically speaking on how she didn't put Brendon in therapy after he was sexually abused as a kid.
Since the show aired, the actor took to Facebook to explain his reasoning and give insight into his frustration. In a lengthy explanation he posted:
