What do a nudist and Dr. Phil have in common?
I found this story in the Beverly Hills Courier. It seems Dr. Phil and CBS are being sued by two women who were "traumatized by the presence of a naked man during an episode of a 'Dr. Phil' spin-off" called "The Dr. Phil House".
Shirley Rae Dieu, 56, of Irvine, and Crystal Matchett, 26, of Westland, Mich., agreed to take part in a 2007 episode which was wired with cameras and microphones to give viewers a supposedly unvarnished look at what went on inside. The women and four other people were part of a show on the difficulties they all had in interacting with others, and at one point, a nudist was sent to the house to test their reactions.
"As a naked man ran into the house, I was in shock and total disbelief of what was happening, feeling violated and disgusted," Matchett stated. "I heard ... Dieu scream, 'How dare you' while covering her eyes and running into the bedroom."
"This incident was part and parcel of the scenarios being used at the house to focus each of the participants on their ability to tolerate unique individuals and situations, and to resist their own judgmental character," attorney Kelli L. Sager stated in her court papers.
The justices said the case can move forward. You can read the entire story here.
