Now that she’s made the trip to LA to be on TV, it appears that Lynne Spears will probably not be chatting with Dr Phil on his show after all. Nor will any other member of the Spears family. It’s a case of “You’re cancelled” vs “You can’t cancel us, we quit.” But who to believe? According to Life & Style, Britney Spears’ dad Jamie Spears has angrily banned the family from any involvement or participation with Dr Phil’s planned Britney-intervention episode. “As soon as Jamie realized Dr. Phil was making public statements about Britney, including assessments of her condition, he got angry,” said a source. “He started making phone calls to everybody in the family, telling them not to cooperate with Dr Phil.” But People reports that it was Dr Phil who canceled the show. “We had planned to tape a Dr Phil Now show today, focusing not on the tabloid side of Britney’s latest problems, but instead on the very serious issues surrounding this case. Clearly, it is not just Britney’s family struggling to find a way to protect adult children who cannot be ordered or compelled to seek help. Because the Spears situation is too intense at this time, and out of consideration to the family, I have made the decision not to move forward with the taping at this particular time.” Whichever monster is responsible for the cancellation, we thank him.
