Dr Phil Stages An Intervention With A Former Next Top Model Contestant
Jael a former contestant on Cycle 8 of America’s Next Top model has had an intervention staged on Dr Phil to help her with her drug addiction.
It is five years since she came top six on ANTM, and since then has become poly drug addict including meth.
Dr Phil staged an intervention with her parents and of course this was to be shown on his show. Dr Drew Pinksy of Celebrity Rehab fame must have been peeved he did not get her for his show. Believe it or not this is the first time I have seen Dr Phil’s show and it did raise issues of exploitation for ratings.
I do prefer Dr Drew’s manner to Dr Phil’s, but both do have huge egos.
The story was portrayed in a very sensationalistic manner.
But on the other hand the girl was in a bad state and if she does get clean does it matter how it was achieved and Dr Phil is paying the bills.
The full segment is below and does show the ravages on the body that drugs particularly meth can have. It was hard not to become emotionally engaged with the story.
