The show Dr. Phil has been around since 2002, but many are claiming it is fake. The guests on the show often seem to be coached and manipulated into having an argument in order to create drama and shock the audience. There have been a few cases where the guest has actually been an actor and not a real person, leading many to believe that the show is scripted and not real.
Furthermore, some of the advice given by Dr Phil is thought to be outdated or even harmful. All of this leads many to believe that Dr Phil is fake and should not be taken as a source of mental health advice.
