I could only make it through the first segment of Monday's show before giving up for the week, but is this the conclusion every else got from the Dr. Phil segment as well? Howard goofing on others for problems he in fact has in his own life. Howard can be very secretive by avoiding almost all conversation of his personal life, but he can be incredibly transparent when he talks to others about their problems. He'll often use his staff and guests to passive agressively vent about his own problems and insecurities. So I thought this was going to be the typical segment where he bashes Dr. Phil..... mostly because he is jealous of his success (and Oprah's, etc), but most of the segment turned into Howard ripping on the woman for spending too much of her husband's money. Why did this caller get the greenlight for air time Monday morning? Sounds like Howard is just using this caller to vent his frustrations with his own relationship. [HR][/HR]Below is the summary from marksfriggin.......... The caller said that she was calling in because she was on the Dr. Phil show. She said she has a shopping addiction. Howard asked Amanda what she bought last. She said she bought some stuff out in Los Angeles and it was stuff she doesn't need. She said that Dr. Phil didn't let her husband talk when he was on the show. He just talked over him. Howard asked why her husband stays with her. He said she must give a wicked good blow job. Howard asked if she buys anything good. She said she buys purses and watches. Robin said she can't use it all though. Howard asked if she's so good looking that it all looks good on her. She said she's only 134 pounds. She said that she thinks she's good looking. Howard asked if they have kids. She said they do have adult children. Howard said they could solve this by saying that every time she buys something then her husband gets to cheat on her. She said she's not going to do that. Howard said he wants to tell the husband that. The husband got on the line and Howard asked if she's super hot or something. The guy said he doesn't know why he's still with her. He said he does love her. He said he asked her not to go on Dr. Phil. Howard asked how much money she's spending. He said that it's a lot but he's cut it off. He said it was probably $1000 a week. He said he took it all away from her. Howard said he had a conversation with his mom and she was saying that Suze Orman yells at people for going to Starbucks for coffee that's really expensive. Howard said just imagine having a wife spending $1000 a week. Howard told the husband his idea that he gets to fuck one of her friends when she spends money. Howard said that she has to sit and watch him fuck her friends too. Howard said she'll be frugal, cheap and stingy from now on. Howard said they should lock her up in chains.
