Dr. Phil is rushing to help Nick Gordon, and here’s why that bothers me so much

Nick Gordon, the boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown, who has been in a coma for the past few weeks after having been found face down in the tub of the home the two share, is having a tough time. He’s allegedly not been allowed to visit his girlfriend in the hospital, having been banned by her family. He recently sent out this tweet:

Dr. Phil got wind of this and dropped everything to go help Nick Gordon.

Dr. Phil to the rescue?

I’m not so sure that his motivation is pure. Actually, I’m positive that his motivation ISN’T pure. His motivation is ratings.

Though Dr. Phil got his boost from Oprah when he bestowed his brand of tough love on her during the Amarillo Texas Beef Trial. But since he has become the smarmy equivalent of a talk show ambulance chaser. His show has become less about helping people (ala Oprah) and more about self promotion. I’m sure Oprah is ruing the day she thrust Dr. Phil into the spotlight.

Nick Gordon needs more than Dr. Phil. And the last thing he needs is a camera in his face. While Nick Gordon may see Dr. Phil’s extension as an opportunity for help, Dr. Phil’s motive is only an opportunity for ratings. And I’m not going to buy in.

Are you?
