Randy Miller: My Appointment with Dr. Phil

dr-phil-robin (1)My cell rang last week and displayed a Boca Raton phone number… 

When I answered, the caller identified herself as a senior editor with The National Enquirer.  My first thought was, “Are they still in business?”

Turns out Enquiring minds wanted to find out about an interview I did years ago on my radio show.  She told me they were doing a story about the TV non-doctor, Dr. Phil.  

Apparently a book is out called, The Making of Dr. Phil, where Phil’s first wife, Debbie McCall, was quoted extensively from an on air interview I did with her, around 1998.

The Enquirer wanted to know if I could remember a few juicy tidbits from the interview, as ex-wife Debbie is now very reluctant to speak to the media.

I didn’t want to admit that I have trouble remembering what I had for lunch, so I told her I would check some facts and call back.

dr-phil-mcgrawI contacted my former sidekick, Kimberly Ray, and together we were able to piece together some  quotes from the former Mrs. Dr.

Debbie McCall, living in Topeka at the time, had detailed her daily verbal and mental abuse from Dr. Phil (“stupid” was a frequent nickname), plus a regular regimen of drinking and Dr. Phil-landering.  Basically, that he was an all around jerk of a husband.

I related the stories to the Enquirer editor, and she told me the issue will be out next week. I’m sure Dr. Phil would diagnose some underlying cry for attention on my part, but, honestly….I just answered my phone!

    Ok, pinch your nose, close off totally, the air to your nose and say, “You called your wife a biyatch!!”

    Anyone can imitate Dr. Phil.

    Try it, really.

    What can I tell ya? I can sound just like him.

    I do the Kennedys too.

    Just sayin…

    • chuck says:

      Ok, a little mistake there, you have to pronounce “wife” – “waff”.

      You have already tried it.

      Don’t lie.

      Go do it in the mirror.

      See? It’s easy.

      Ya gotta kind of drawl it out too.

      “You cald yore waff a biyatch!!”

    Dr. Phil was the first string starting middle linebacker for the University of Tulsa.

    Seriously, he was.

    They played the University of Houston and lost 100 to 6. I swear to God.

    The last time a middle linebacker played that bad, he was preoccupied with an invisible girl friend.

    With glaze gone and me being edited hearne’s numbers are really really
    down.

    HC: Au contraire, we slipped for three or four weeks but now we’re back where we were and climbing. Funny how that works, huh?

  4. Super Dave says:

    Sorry harley we don’t miss either one of you and Paul and I are both working on ideas for KCC. Have a nice day!

  5. Hardy Harley from OP says:

    Self promoting Harley. Taking a page out of glazers book on how to pump up your self esteem on false facts and useless un-founded info. Quick to call out peoples occupation and call everyone a coward when your hiding behind a fake name. Seems you using the same tactics your calling out cowards. Well I call out BS!! How close am I Harley?

  6. KB in KC says:

    Screw Dr. Phil, I want to know more about Kimberly Ray and how she’s doing lately. Man, did I have a thing for her back in the day.

    • admin says:

      I’ll second that…
      The last time I tracked down Kimberly Ray she was kicking butt and taking names in Rochester, N.Y. Still is, I think.

  7. whatotherpeoplethink says:

    Why do people like Harley equate 100 comments to success when 75 are comprised of themselves extolling their own greatness? I’d rather not have to read that drivel and enjoy the 25 comments with worthy content.
    KCCs comment numbers may have gone down, thank goodness, but the quality of stories and comments have never been better. The new people add a fresh much needed touch. The likes of Harley and Craig can’t leave fast enough or go far enough away for my taste!

    • admin says:

      If you want to look at the relationship between readership traffic and comments, gaze no further than the Alexa rankings for Greg Hall’s sports site and KC Confidential.

      Alexa has KCC at 500,691 with Hall at 3, 697, 225 – more than 3 million places behind us.

      Yet Greg – who does a great job btw – blows the doors off KC Confidential when it comes to garnering comments. It’s not unusual for one of his posts to log, 30, 60 or even 100 comments.

    Remember the other day when he was bragging about being a better writer than everyone? Good gracious. That paragraph is impossible to read.

      Oh, never mind. I missed the satire. It was too perfect.
