Mona Ackerman: Dr. Phil Is an Unlicensed Blabbermouth

MonaAriAckermanRich.jpg

Dr. Mona Ackerman weighs in on the Dr. Phil-Britney Spears mess over at HuffPo. She’s the constant companion of Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen (seen above with beard), and moves in considerably more high-toned circles than either Phil or Brit, but Brit could buy and sell the whole pack of them with what she spends on Big Gulps.

Still, Ackerman makes a good point:

What may be more important that the effect celebrity has on Dr. Phil’s patients is the effect it has had on him.

She splits hairs, though, when she carps that McGraw, who does have a PhD, isn’t licensed in California–like that’s the biggest problem with his blabbing about Britney Spears and her mental health.
