Dr. Phil to Be a First-Time Granddad

Originally posted 10/06/2009 08:15AM

Dr. Phil McGraw is going to be a grandfather – and he will announce it on his TV show Tuesday, PEOPLE has learned.

This will be the first grandchild for Dr. Phil and wife Robin, and the first child for their 30-year-old son Jay and his wife, Erica McGraw.

Dr. Phil, 59, says he got the happy news during a recent trip to Europe. "We were actually vacationing with the whole family and were in Elba, Italy," he says. "Jay and Erica had discreetly gotten several home pregnancy tests the day before in France, and they sat us all down in Elba and said they had some exciting news! 'We are pregnant!' "


"The day before Robin had said to me, 'I just get the feeling that Erica is pregnant.' I swear she is some kind of mind-reader, but I guess women know these things."

"Yes We Can" has taken on new meaning.

Some of the country's top talk show hosts are riffing off President Obama's campaign slogan with a campaign of their own in support of hard-hit local food banks.

Dr. Phil, Ellen DeGeneres, Bonnie Hunt, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson and The Doctors are asking audience members at their shows to donate canned goods to help re-stock the L.A. Food Bank, as well as agencies nationwide affected by the economic downturn. The goal of the "Yes We Can" campaign: to collect 12,000 cans of food a week through April.

Ferguson joked, "I was ecstatic, as we often encourage audience members to leave all heavy, metal objects outside the stage." In the tradition of lounge comedy, he added, "audience members are still free to bring fresh food in to express their distaste for the comedy."

Dr. Phil Admits Britney Statement Was Not 'Helpful'

Originally posted 01/18/2008 07:00AM

Dr. Phil McGraw spends his days telling people how to fix their lives. This time, he admits, he's the one who got it wrong.

Earlier this month, the tough-loving talk show host sped to Britney Spears's bedside at L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after her family requested his help. After their brief visit – prompted by Spears's Jan. 4 meltdown – McGraw gave a statement to Entertainment Tonight, saying that the 26-year-old singer was in "dire need of both medical and psychological intervention."

"Was it helpful to the situation? Regrettably, no," McGraw, 57, said Thursday during a taping of the Dr. Phil Show, reports USA Today. (The show is slated to air Monday.) "I definitely think if I had it to do over again, I probably wouldn't make any statement at all. Period."

Dr. Phil McGraw is telling Britney Spears that she is not too far gone to turn her life around.

"You can make this okay," the TV therapist, who at the request of her family briefly visited Spears while she was in the hospital, says in a message to the pop star that is posted on ETonline.com. "Your family loves you. You may not always agree with what they say, with what they do but they've loved you when you weren't lovable. Turn to the people that love you and listen. You have two children and you are the one in this world to protect them. There is no sacrifice that [your mother Lynne] won't make for you, and there is no sacrifice that your father won't make. They are the people that want nothing from you, and everything for you."

Dr. Phil McGraw has canceled plans to dedicate a show to Britney Spears, calling the situation "too intense," he announced on his Web site Monday.

"As was widely reported this weekend, at the request of concerned family members, I visited Britney Spears in the hospital. The details of that visit will, of course, remain private," he said in a message online.

"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.
