A little later today, Dr. Phil is interviewing former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant turned meth addict Jael Strauss, but I’m almost more excited for his interview next week with Dina Lohan.

Men Rule, Girls Drool, Blah, Blah, Blah

We’ve heard some dumb things said on Dr. Phil, but his recent guest Dick Masterson takes the cake. Trust us, his name is no misnomer. He’s the chauvinist who runs MenAreBettertThanWomen.com and he goes around spouting gems like, “How is prostitution illegal but alimony isn’t? They’re basically the same thing.
