Incident: Dr. Phil visits Britney Spears at hospital What did Phil do: Anyone remember a little incident back in January when Britney Spears was removed from her home by medical authorities while tied down to a stretcher? Never one to miss a starring role in someone else's personal crisis, Dr. Phil managed to wangle his way into the pop star's hospital. It is unclear what transpired inside, but Dr. Phil seemed more the opportunist in a white coat than any self-help knight in shining armor when he emerged from the medical facility saying he was doing a show on Britney and started blabbing about the troubled pop star's condition to the press. What would Phil say: “We teach people how to treat us.” Outcome: The Spears family accused Dr. Phil of violating their trust on national television via a spokesman. "The family basically extended an invitation of trust for him to come in as a resource to support them, not to go out and make public statements," Lou Taylor said on the "Today" show. "Any statements publicly that he made, because he was brought in under this cloak of trust, are just inappropriate. We feel like, to set the record straight, we need to say that."Tony Esparza / CBS
