Dr. Phil and His Wife Sued by Former Talk Show Guest Who Wants Residuals From Her Appearances

By TheBlast Staff


A woman who was once deemed one of Dr. Phil's best guests is suing the talk show host and his wife claiming she should have been paid for all the times they used her on the show.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a woman named Josie Goldberg says she appeared on a 2010 episode of the show called, "Spoiled and Entitled." She appeared again on the show two weeks later and was featured on a 2011 episode called "Smart Women, Dumb Choices?"

Goldberg claims she then appeared on a 2014 episode featuring best guests from the past and then again in 2017 in an episode checking in on her life.

Goldberg claims as a SAG/AFTRA performer, she's entitled to residuals from the re-runs, which she has estimated to be $10,000.

As for why Goldberg is suing Robin McGraw, she claims that during one of the episodes, Robin laughed at her gave a "thumbs up" when another guest told Goldberg to "go get mental help at the Bob Hope Center."

She claims Robin McGraw is "a woman of power and privilege" and that a lot of people have not wanted to work with her as a result.

She is suing Robin for $10,000 as well.

The Blast reached out to Dr. Phil for comment — so far, no word back.
