Joan Rivers Vocal Problems- Was There Malpractice During Her Endoscopy?
August 29, 2014

 

Screen Shot 2014-08-28 at 9.51.20 PM

Joan Rivers was my client around the time  of her late husband Edgar’s death. She was referred to me by her ear nose and throat physician Dr. Edward Kantor  in Beverly Hills to help her learn to not abuse her vocal cords and to help her use her speaking voice more effectively.  So it came as no surprise when I learned today that  she went in for an endoscopic procedure at Yorktown Endoscopy Center in NYC so that her doctors  could get a closer look at the function of her vocal muscles.

We all remember Joan as having a machine gun like gutteral sounding hoarse voice as we not only heard her verbal jabs during her comedy routines, but  her vocal jabs to her laryngeal muscles and vocal cords. When a person sounds hoarse and often lose their voice,  it is not uncommon to have a laryngeal endoscopic procedure done so that the physician can visualize the vocal cords to check for how they function or  whether there is  paralysis, vocal nodules,  or vocal ulcers.

The procedure using a  transnasal flexible laryngoscope  or laryngeal oral scope is  used for  this office-based diagnostic procedure which is extremely well tolerated and  performed on patients of all ages from newborns to someone who was 81 like Joan Rivers.

Before the endoscope is inserted topical anesthetic is placed in the nasal cavity to avoid stinging and burning during the procedure.Then they sit in an upright position and the scope is passed along the floor of the nose into the back of the throat to a level just above the vocal cords.It is essentially a painfree simple procedure. 

Next the  patient is asked to breath deeply and say the “ah: sound which allows the physician to directly observe the structure and dynamic motion of the  vocal cords which they can view on a video screen .There are no side effects of the procedure and the anesthesia spray usually wears off in about an hour. 

So if Joan was undergoing this simple non invasive non life threatening procedure, what happened? Why was her airway cut off? Did someone do the procedure improperly? Was a technician doing the procedure or was it a licensed physician? Was this a case of malpractice? I have to ask these questions because it seems odd to me that her airway would be closed off.

Also lets say her airway was closed off,  why did a clinic of  this kind or any kind not have life saving equipment to open her airway? If she had a heart attack, why was there no immediate cardiac life saving devices on the premises? Why was she deprived of oxygen for any length of time?  Why wasn’t she given oxygen immediately? This bothers me. Why were there not life saving emergency devices available and if they were why weren’t they implemented asap? 

I am so disturbed by this for several reasons. First,  I knew Joan personally along with her daughter Melissa and I know the horrible toll it will take on Melissa and her son, not to mention the toll it will take on Joan, if she survives.

Secondly I had personal experience with something like this happening in my own family. My dearest brother Manny was intubated improperly by a doctor who was only a doctor for 7 months. As a result my brother became a vegetable and died. I can never get over this and carry this severe emotional  pain with me  my throughout my life. So I cry for Joan and for Melissa and for her son Cooper as I know exactly how they feel to know that someone they loved had to die  or become incapacitated in such a horrific manner. 

I have no doubt that with the resources available to Melissa there will be a thorough investigation as to what actually happened and who may be possibly  responsible.

It is so devastating that Joan was looking and feeling so good as it was reported hours earlier. Now her life is changed forever- and not for the better .

Joan is now in a medically induced coma and depending  on how long she was deprived of oxygen to her brain, she will most likely never be able to do what she did before. For some people that may be viewed  as a relief because  they found her humor politically incorrect and mean spirited. For others who enjoyed her humor and her views it is a great loss.

Joan’s politics, point of  view, and humor aside, no one should be going into a non invasive relatively simple procedure and end up potentially brain damaged in in a medically induced coma where they may never be able to speak  or live.

 

 

 

Toxic CNN Anchor Creates Hostility Driving Joan Rivers Off Set But Obama Gay Michelle “Tranny” Joke May Be River’s Undoing
July 7, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-07-06 at 11.18.18 PM

 

There is nothing more TOXIC then someone being the instigator and then trying to make out like they are the victim. That is what happened with the passive aggressive actions of CNN anchor Fredericka Whitfield. Whitfield was the one who instigated the hostile tone of the interview by calling Joan mean when Joan appears on Fashion Police, calling Joan out on making fun of serious situations like Casey Anthony’s dead daughter and critiquing Joan’s book cover of her new book Diary of a Mad Woman where Joan is wearing fur.

Whitfield laughs a phony laugh and mugs for the camera when Joan walks off the set, acting surprised that Joan left yet mugging and phony smiling all the way. Initially Joan tried to explain that Fashion Police was not mean and that Joan didn’t attack the celebrities, she attacked the clothing and fashion.

Whitfield glossed over River’s answer and proceeded in a hostile tone to attack her over the Casey Anthony daughter humor. Joan once again tried to explain that you can take a horrible situation and add humor (albeit dark humor) it gives the person a moments respite from the tragedy. Rivers further went on to describe how Winston Churchill described this type of humor as a moment’s vacation. Once again Whitfield glossed over her answer and began to attack Joan over wearing fur on her book cover. Joan tried to explain and immediately went on the offensive asking Whitfield if she wore leather and told her to shut up and talk to her when she wears a paper belt.

Then Joan pulled out her earpiece and walked out. On one breath Whitfield was complimentary and on the other breath began her series of attacks. This is called passive aggressive behavior and highly toxic in my book. Rivers told Whitfield that all her questions had been “negative,” and added “You are not the one to interview a person who does humor, sorry,” before Rivers walked off. Rivers was right. She came to speak of her book, not the show and not her furs. It was the attacking staccatto and hostile tone of voice Whitfield used that got Joan worked up.

Had Whitfield said ” What would you say to people who comment on you wearing fur” instead of directly attacking Joan that she was wearing fur on the cover of her book, it would have been a different story. Had she worded her questions differently, Rivers would not have walked off the set. So needless to say I believe Joan was absolutely right not to subject herself to this amature, unprofessional, and hostile interview.

While the incident was unfortunate it put Joan high up in the press and now makes more people aware of her new book. It also put Fredericka Whitfield on the map as before this, most people had no idea who she was.

On the show Joan Rivers was defending herself in saying that she has made people laugh for 50 years.Before all of the current political correctness which permeates our society her humor obviously worked very well. She skewered the Royal family and Elizabeth Taylor as well as racial and ethnic groups without a thought. People loved this and her Vegas shows and nightclub acts around the country sold out regularly. It was the Don Rickles put people down type of humor that people seemed to love.

But today it has changed. People are much more tender and sensitive and don’t find any humor in tragedy such as Caylee Anthony’s death (me included). They will also not tolerate Holocaust jokes as Joan has made in the past or Black jokes. They will also not tolerate gay or gender identity jokes like the recent one she made about The President and First Lady.

When a reporter  recently questioned Rivers if she thought there would be a gay President in the White House she remarked that we already have one- Obama and that his wife Michelle is a tranny.

In my view it is not Joan’s walking off the CNN set that may be her undoing but this joke about the President and First Lady that in my view that hits well below the belt. It’s not funny and in my view oversteps all boundaries. Whether or not you are a fan of Obama and his wife, we can all agree that this was a pretty shocking thing to say, especially that Michelle is a “tranny.” While there has been tabloid press in the past  alluding to Obama’s being gay, there is nothing to even suggest that Michelle is transgender. It seem libelous to me.

While shock value has been what has sustained Rivers throughout the years, this shock value may be what finally does her in.

Shaquille O’Neal As TOXIC as Donald Sterling As He Makes Fun of Genetically Disabled Man
April 30, 2014

Image

As someone who spent the early part of her career working the craniofacially deformed  individuals, including patients with Ectodermal Dysplasia, a condition affecting the  skin and teeth and sweat glands with protrusion of the upper part of the skull, and  I am completely sickened by what basketball star Shaquille O’Neal did to a  young man from Detroit, Jahmel Bionion,  who is suffering from this condition.

 

Image

To me, Shaquille is now as Toxic as Donald Sterling as I am sickened by both of their egregious actions. Please don’t tell me that one is different from the other. It is not.Both O’Neil’s  and Sterling’s words and actions are devastating to others. While Sterling showed  abusive discrimination towards Blacks, Shaquille O’Neal showed the same abusive discrimination towards a genetically challenged person. I can NEVER respect Shaquille again just as I can NEVER respect Donald Sterling.

 

I especially can never look at Shaquille the same way after I saw the video if the young man, Jahmel Binion,  talking about how hurt he was by Shaquille O’Neal ( who was once one of Jahmel’s  hero’s ) I shed tears. below is a link to the video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4LKepphE0k

 

What Shaquille did is awful!! It is NOT funny to make a face and mock someone else, especially if they are disabled.  Shaq of all people should know better as there by the grace ofGod goes he.

If it wasn’t for basketball,  Shaquille too may have found himself victimized and made fun of due to his giant size . While he has served as a volunteer reserve officer with the Los Angeles Sherrif’s department when he was a Laker, as law enforcement was one of Shaquille’s childhood dreams, the reality is that his extreme height and size would have made him ineligible  for any police department or law enforcement organization due to their height  and weight regulations.  Had he not been a celebrity. He could have been easily turned away from many a job opportunity because of his size and height.

 

Even though the internet is filled with people who feel as horribly as  I do about what Shaquille did to this young man , he has yet to offer up an apology, or a face to face meeting with the young man, or to help repair the damage he contributed to  this young man’s self esteem. If he does happen to apologize to the young man, in my view it is too little too late.  He needed to do it immediately, not after there was public disdain.

 

Just as I have boycot tDonald Sterling, I am doing the same to Shaquille O’Neal, whom I once considered one of my favorite basketball players. I can’t  even look at him for the added abuse he did to Jahmel’s already fragile self esteem.  Just as what Donald Sterling said and did is unforgivable, Shaquille O’neal’s Toxic and sickening actions are unforgivable as well.

 

 

 

 

Oscar Pistorius Body Language in the Courtroom Casts Doubt
April 22, 2014

 

Image

While his family denies  that disabled champion runner Oscar Pistorius took acting lessons to prepare himself for trial and others swear that he did take lessons, the bottom line is that something is not right in terms of how he presents himself in the courtroom.

As a jury consultant  and someone who has prepared witnesses for trial, I can assure you that acting lessons are the absolute worst thing a person can do to prepare themselves. People need to be genuine and show genuine emotion and speak in a manner. They need to show body language that will not alienate a jury, but rather objectively allow them to hear the message.

In observing Oscar Pistorius’ body language throughout the trial, I noticed many things that are rather odd. His emotions often do not seem to match the situations being discussed or his body language seems to be over the top as far as his emotions are concerned.

He seems to be tuning out which will not endear himself to the judge who, is the only one who will be deciding his fate.

 

The one thing that I noticed is that he is always covering his ears. In  essence he doesn’t want to hear all the gory details about what he did to Reeva. He wants to block it out and that is what he is doing by literally blocking his ears. But that behavior is off putting.  He needs to sit there without his hands over his ears and listen to every word. If he shed emotion, it needs to be genuine . He needs toface the details of what he is accused of doing.

 

Image

Not only does he cover his ears, but he covers his head with his papers as you see in the photo above. It is akin to someone wanting to  pull the blankets over their head and not leave their bed or the house. This signals extreme shame and guilt  over what he did. He wants it to all go away as he is in essence, hiding.

Image

 

As well as not wanting to hear the details at the trial, he also does not want to see them. He does not want to see the results of his actions via the gory photos  as he tightly shuts his eyes and pinches the bridge of his nose in a self comforting gesture.

 

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 9.33.34 AM The gesture where he pulls down the skin on his face is a self mutilation type of gesture which often occurs when a person is feeling guilty and there is no way out. It is a  literal form of  self punishment as we see Pistorius doing here.

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 9.32.44 AM

This photo is of Pistorius’ aunt and uncle crying. With their furrowed brows and squinted eyes, they show genuine tears of  sadness at what happened  in this tragic situation.

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 9.32.29 AM

In contrast here are Pistorius tears. He hides his face as he cries which to many observing him may indicate that he is faking his cry. Usually when one is in emotional pain, they don’t care who sees them cry. They just express their sorrow and upset openly. Many may feel this is contrived and he may have something to hide.

 

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 9.32.15 AM

He cries too often and his recovery time from his cry is too fast. When people recover too quickly from a cry to a normal non crying facial posture it takes them time to recover. He does it almost immediately which may indicate that he is doing all of this crying for affect.

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 9.31.51 AM

The above cry seems too intense . This facial gesture would occur if someone is in severe extreme grief, where they cannot contain themselves or control their emotions.  His hand over his mouth shows that there is something he doesn’t want to reveal. And his tightly squinted eyes are not congruent with the crying emotion he is attempting to display. With a squinty eyed cry the mouth is usually open. That is not the case here.

As a body language I feel that something is off with Pristorius and his emotions. Usually I see an incongruent emotion and body language when the person is medicated or on drugs. But that emotion is usually a more dull or blank  facial appearance.

When someone shows the inconsistency of emotion as Pristorius has been doing throughout the trial, it shows me that either he has forced this on his own in terms of trying to project what he thinks the judge wants to see, or that he has been prepped  or coached in some way.

If he did take acting lessons, he did himself a huge disservice as he looks like a very bad actor trying to force emotion. It takes years to perfect acting skills, not a few weeks or months. So if he did take the lessons, they clearly did not work. On the other hand if he did not take lessons and he is acting like this on his own, he is also doing himself a huge disservice because he is not putting his position across in a genuine manner.

In the US judicial system if he was in front of a jury of his peers my belief is that he would be convicted based on his body language and vocal tone alone. Whether you want to believe it or not the truth is that juries can and have often  judged someone on these things even if all the evidence points in their favor. But Pistorius only has to convince one person whom he refers to as “My lady” throughout the proceedings.

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 10.02.25 AM

If My lady” uses her  legal skills along with her genuine common sense and pays attention to the defendant’s body language, facial, language, and vocal tone, she will come up with the right verdict for Oscar Pistorius as his communication skills and body language speak volumes.

 

Paula Deen’s Body Language, Fake Tears, Insincere Apology, and Racist Punchline Tuned Off Fans and Sponsors
June 28, 2013

Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 6.00.36 PM

Deep down, Paula Deen did not  feel that  she did anything wrong. Hence you hear her empty sounding hollow apologies. She made three apologies, one worse sounding than the other.The body doesn’t lie and neither does the voice.

Her tears were non-tears with no liquid in them. And worse or all she used a phrase”I is what I is” which is the punchline of a racist joke.  She went from the fire into the frying pan and fried her reputation for good.

Had she said, “Look I said that 20 something years ago out of anger at one particular person.  I am ashamed of it. Let’s move on because I am not a racist and for anyone to think so is wrong.   But let us use this as a teaching moment that whether we are black or white we must eliminate that word from our lexicon because it brings hurt to everyone.Let’s stop using it in our music and  everywhere else.”

She also needed to put her money where her mouth was and say that she was starting up an educational fund where she would go to schools along with other professionals to teach children about not using hurtful words and telling racist jokes to hurt others.

But instead she got way too defensive about a black guy having a gun to her head and then ending it with an over the top dramatic statement about throwing a stone so hard that it should kill her and then shockingly saying “I is what I is.” She didn’t say “i am what I am”but made reference to  racist joke.

Here is the joke:

There was a black guy and a white guy.
They were debating over whether god was white or black.
The white guy said that there was only one way to find out and that is to
pray.
So they go up on a hill and they pray, and pray, and pray.
Finally they hear a voice say, “I am what I am.”
The white guy jumps up, and says, “Aha, I told you he was white.”
The black guy jumps up and says, “What do you mean? That didn’t prove
anything.”
“Yes it did. Because if he was black he would’ve said I is what I is.”

Her insincere apology and defensive explanation on the Today show  is the reason why she has been dropped by so many including Walmart and Target and her diabetes drug company.

It is not that she said the N words over two decades ago. It is that she now showed no remorse . it was  her body language and how she said it that turned people off.

Charlie Sheen’s NON TOXIC Gesture Pays Justin Bieber Photgrapher Funeral Instead of Beiber
January 10, 2013

 Screen Shot 2013-01-10 at 2.30.10 AM

While Charlie Sheen may have caused Toxic havoc on the set of Two and a Half Men, he not so Toxic after all. First he bailed out a debt ridden Lindsay Lohan with writing her a six figure check to pay her taxes.Now in another NON TOXIC act, he is  graciously paying for  the funeral of the  29 year old photographer Chris Guerra  who was killed  while shooting photos of  Justin Bieber’s car .

 

Sheen said “A tragic incident like this erases the line between the photographer and the subject. It’s an unforgiving moment that begs us all to be human and work as one to prevent this in the future.”

 “As parents, we are all not supposed to bury our children. My deepest condolences to the families involved.”

While this is indeed a beautiful gesture on Sheen’s part, in my view it would have been even more powerful if Justin Bieber would have reached into his checkbook and written the check.

Lindsay Lohan’s Body Language In Liz and Dick Was Wooden with Monotone Voice
November 26, 2012

 

Lindsay Lohan may have been a precocious  child actress who made scenes seem believable when she appeared in Parent Trap and Freaky Friday. However, as an good adult actress in  her Liz and Dick performance, she needs a lot of work in the acting department in my view . Her performance was one dimentional,  stiff and mechanical in most places. It was devoid of natural emotion which made the lines she recited unbelievable .

In other places when she did invoke emotion, it was completely over the top. In fact her facial expression and fake tears were so over the top in places that it looked comical. . It as like watching a beginning actress perform  her first role .’’

The lack of vocal inflection amplified the wooden performance. There was also  no chemistry between her and the fellow who played Richard Burton  There was way too much kissing for so little chemistry on screen. This made it very uncomfortable for the viewer to watch.

In my view, Lindsay has  clearly lost her  acting “chops”.   It is no wonder why. Acting is not like riding a bicycle where you can get on and ride after decades of not riding. Acting , like it does for athletics, requires steady practice and skill. She may have been a natural actress as a  child. But as an adult she needs practice,  skill and  formal training. It is a different ball game for a child actress and an adult actress. She simply does not have the skills and it showed.

Instead of spending years in courtrooms and in the tabloids she needed to spend them in an acting class so that she would never have done such a sloppy over the top and wooden performance as she did in the suicide scene which turned out to be comical.

 

She clearly relied on cigarettes as props in almost every scene. It was an acting crutch. The focus was on the cigarette and not on her. Yes we got that people of that era smoked but not all the time.

 

SLOPPY SPEECH PATTERN

 

Besides the mechanical acting which any beginning actress could have performed in my view, her speech pattern also did not lend itself to being credible. She was sloppy in her cadence and did not articulate her words.

Also several times in the script she used the term “screwed” as a  colloquialism. This

term was not part of the slang back in the 1960’s. No one used the term “screwed. ”For this gaffe I blame the writers .  I also blame the writers on their lame dialogue. No one speaks like they wrote. It was awful. Lindsay’s monotonous uninflected  delivery of these awful lines didn’t help matters either.

Elizabeth Taylor had impeccable diction and Lindsay’s rapid paced delivery of her lines destroyed the illusion of Elizabeth Taylor.

 

 FRIGHTENING VOICE QUALITY

 

Whenever she laughed in various scenes  you could hear  breathiness and a raspiness. It sounded like a smokers laugh. It was not pleasant to  hear.

The quality of her  voice is also of concern to me as a former voice and speech consultant who worked with countless actors to help heal their vocal pathologies.

Her voice is hoarse and husky. It does not fit the voice pattern of a 20 something young woman. It makes her sound considerably older and harsher.  This voice quality if often  heard when there is  vocal pathology often associated with too much drinking , or smoking or drugging and misuse of the voice.

When people sound like that on a consistent basis it can often  be a sign of  a physical issue from vocal nodules, vocal polyps,  contact ulcers on the vocal folds to even throat cancer. Now I am not saying Lindsay has throat cancer. I am saying that with an voice like that,  she desperately needs to see an ear nose and throat physician for a major medical checkup.

 

While I take pity on Lindsay for her Toxic parents who  constantly appear to “sell her down the river “ in order to get publicity  for themselves by taking from their daughter’s limelight, ,the public is not so forgiving when it comes to acting.

Countless  actors have Toxic families but it doesn’t interfere their acting. In my view, her family issues  clearly have clearly  affected her acting skills. She needs to spend  every day in acting class or with a private acting coach to get some skills if she wants to be a serious actress . Most important f all she needs in invest in  a voice and speech coach.

Dina Lohan Flirts With Dr. Phil Using Manipulative Body Language
September 18, 2012

My hat goes off to Dr. Phil as you can  see what an amazing professional he is in terms of how he handled Dina Lohan during her interviwe on his show. He didn’t let her get away with anything. He set boundaries and he didn’t put up with her

trying to control the situation and acting like a big shot in the TV world . As she asked if the cameramen were rolling and used TV lingo she did so in an attempt to put herself on even footing with Dr. Phil. But it  backfired as Dr. Phil called her on it.  he let her know that it was not his first day in television and that he would handle all the television technical issues.

When she realized that she couldn’t gain control or the upper hand or manipulate Dr. Phil or the interview she resorted to flirting as she raised her shoulder in a coquettish manner and smiled in order to try and manipulate Dr. Phil with her sexuality. But that clearly did not work.

Then Dr. Phil gets serious and asks if she went to college. WE see her in defensive mode body language wise as she covers herself up and holds on to her elbows as if to brace herself for the upcoming  hard hitting questions.

She says she went to NYU and was a dance major as she flits with her hair. She obviously didn’t finish college and her body language reflects charged emotion not he topic. As she was asked about Michael, her ex  she tries to take control by telling the camera men to cut.

She is clueless that this is Dr. Phil’s show and he is the one to say cut not her. He is is control not her.

When the camera crow goes about their business and continues filing she messes us the interview by turing away and holding up her hand indicating that she wants them  to cut out what she said.

Dr. Phil is not having any of this nonsense and must have shot her a serious no nonsense look as she immediately retreats and becomes small as she hunches over and puts her hand on her face as she gives a frustrated look of  upset resignation that she has lost control and it can’t be her way.

Dr. Phil is compassionate as he tells her to take a breath as she complies. Then he resumes questioning about Michael . Instead of answering she says to dr. Phil- I feel were’ on a date.” How inappropriate yet how revealing. She once again resorts to trying to get her way and control over the situation through flirtation.”

Dr. Phil asks her a simple question  about Michael and she turns away and says that;s a loaded question which surprises Dr. Phil as it was a simple question.

Now look what happens when Dr. Phil asks her about when the abuse by Michael started . She inappropriately laughs and turns away crinkles her nose and raises her shoulder  and in a flirtatious manner laughs and says ” On my honeymoon.”This was inappropriate body language for the question which was asked. It was her way of  not wanting to go down that line of questioning.

Dr. Phil probes , What happened on your honeymoon?” She inappropriately turns away  and acts coquettish as she says “He threw a bible at my head” said as if she was asking a question. Her voice also  died off at the end of the statement so you could barely hear her. She inappropriately laughed as she said this. Based on her tone and body language tells I wonder if that is true. I wonder if Michael really thew a bible at her head on their honeymoon. To me it seemed like there were many signals of deception.

Then she repeats herself and says that she can’t believe she is saying this on camera as she looks down.Dr. Phil finds this unbelievable as he repeats what she says “On your honeymoon he throws a bible at your head.”  She should shrugs, looks down and acts flirtatious. When he asks if she thought it wouldn’t happen again, she shakes her head no when answering in the affirmative, looks down and shrugs her shoulders once again which to me may indicate deception on her part.

Dr. Phil asks her about the lowest time in her relation with Michael. Once again in high dramatic fashion she turns away from the camera and says :” Can we stop”, one again trying to manipulate and gain control over the interview. But of course there is no stopping.

She fakes  crying as  she immediately continues on devoid of upset and crying. At this point she carries a prop- a kleenex.

She leaks out yet anther flirtatious signal reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe as she says “you just have to know when to get out” in reference to Michael’s abuse. Her body language does not match the content of what was said. She then smiles, a coquettish smile as she shrugs her shoulders.

Then as Dr. Phil proceeds to ask her anther question pertaining to Michael and his alleged abuse, we she her wiping away a non tear and wiping her non tears from one eye. people crying with real tears from both eyes, not one eye. Then she lets out two fake sniffs as Dr. Phil asks her to speak about the time Michael showed up at her home. her recovery time was too quick, devoid of emotion as she begins to speak.

She then goes into flirting mode agin as she raises her shoulder , gives Dr. Phil direct eye contact as she smiles and in a breathy tone says “Do I really have to talk about that?” Dr. Phil calmly replies ” Do you?”

She then smiles and points at him and says “You’re good” in yet another attempt to gain control over the interview and manipulate.

She then laughs and turns into little girl mode as she says Can I go home now?

Dr. Phil was having none of it. he called her on everything from her denial about Lindsay to what she was on the show. He finally had enough of her not being genuine as he dismissed her and ended the interview.

Watching this over 50 year old flirting to get her way and sticking poses was pathetic and sad . Her denial about Lindsay  was reminiscent of how Lindsay  like Dina is  unable to  take responsibility for her actions and blame it on others.

After watching this very disturbing interview  it is so clear why  Lindsay is the way she is and why she does not have a chance in life unless she unplugs from her  mom manager’s influence and control and gets into some serious therapy to deal with the negative effects her mom has had on her.

Both of her parents leave a lot to be desired. We have all heard from mouthy Michael throughout the years as he has trashed Dina in the press . After watching this interview with Dr. Phil, apparently there may be a lot of truth to what Michael has said about Dina.

You could really see the competive nature she has with Lindsay
