    Thanks for the correction.

    55? No way does she look even close to that age without having had something done. Not even good genes could be used as a good excuse. Still, she is lovely.

    You'd be amazed what good genetics can do for a person. Between good genetics and caring for your skin the way you should, wonders can occur.

    Re: Dr. Phil

    Apparently Robin is a twin. I'd like to see how wrinkle-free her brother is before admitting she just has good genes. It looks to me like she's had work done around the neck and there's no way she hasn't had her eyes lifted. I've actively disliked Robin since Phil invited her onstage during one show and she berated a mom (who had two nasty, foul-mouthed sons) for her parenting skills. In spite of that...hey, they've got the money for her to keep herself looking youthful, good on her. I'd do the same thing.

    His show happens to come on before Y&R, otherwise I don't think I'd be watching anymore. Phil's been plugging his new book all week to the point that when I saw a display of it in the bookstore, I wanted kick it down.

    Yeah, you can tell by looking at Robin's face that she has done more than lots of expensive makeup. But still, lots of expensive makeup. She seems to be a nice, sweet person and a good mother, though. But I suspect she is too submissive in her marriage. I know, none of my business. :biggrin:
    She doesn't seem too submissive to me and Phil is always saying things about her being the boss. She sits in the audience everyday because she gets paid for it. It's her job and I'm sure that she gets quite a bit of money for it too. I would love to have a job like that!

    To be honest, I thought they were way too hard on the mom. Her sons were older teens and were putting their hands on their mom and cussing her out. Mom did her share of screaming and arguing, no doubt about it, but Robin's sanctimonious lecture set my teeth on edge. She sniffled and went on about how she never spoke to her kids that way and how she felt that it was a privilege to mother such a wonderful pair of boys, etc., etc. First of all, the woman has no business counselling people - she's not a psychologist. My husband has worked in the transportation industry for years, that doesn't mean I can jump behind the wheel of a tractor/trailer. Second, I don't see how the mom was helped by listening to another woman with such a self-congratulatory, self-righteous attitude.

    Sorry, didn't mean to go off on an anti-Robin rant. I disapprove of her involvement with the show to the extent it's gone to in the past couple of seasons. I don't care if she parks her skinny behind in a seat for every show, but I'm not aware of any credentials she has that would enable her to speak to the guests as a counsellor/therapist. I think it does a disservice to the entire premise of a show.

    Re: Dr. Phil

    At the supermarket today I saw a tabloid headline to the effect that Dr. Phil stole millions from Oprah...not my line unfortunately or I'd be abel to tell you all why on earth Oprah would let him get his hands on any of her money.... I swear I see Dr. Phil on a tabloid headline at least every other week....NOT a good image for a therapist whom one would like to think has his act together. I guess it is a measure of his star power though, if they think his name on the cover associated with anything, will sell papers.
    (P.S,. No, I don't believe what I read in the Star or NE! Well, maybe the NE about sex... they seem to do a good job on that one at times...vide John Edwards)

    Funny, I rarely tune into this show, but I saw the episode you are talking about and was thinking the exact same thing. I really hate how Robin (and Dr. Pill, oops, Dr Phil) set themselves out to be the standard of how everyone else should be. Well, *I* never did x, y, z, therefore, neither should anyone else. Who died and left them the king and queen of morality? Just because your spouse (not yourself, hello) is a therapist doesn't mean you get to wag your finger and tell people what's what. Even a good therapist will refrain from judging and just try and help. Everyone knows that, if a patient feels they are being judged by their therapist, they will not open up and be honest...

    This show makes a mockery of real therapy and real therapists, in my opinion. When Dr. Phil was on Oprah, he was a no-holds-barred therapist. On his own show, he and his wife are the moral police who berate others for not keeping up with the McGraws. I especially dislike Robin because she seems to only interject and say, 'Oh, I would never do that. I never get mad or say anything offensive to anyone. I'm perfect. You should be just like me.'

    Life can be intensely hard at times and no one, NO ONE is perfect, or reacts in the best possible way 100% of the time. I firmly believe that people who try and make themselves out to be *perfect* are the ones with the biggest issues.

    And as for the plastic surgery, ohh yeah, Robin has definitely had a LOT of work done. It is pretty obvious - her lips and nasolabial folds have had fillers (too much!) and her teeth have been worked on extensively. She is also very botoxed. I'm sure she's had other stuff done, too, but I don't have as good of an eye for those things as for the injectables (I get injectables, I'm not saying it makes her a bad person, I have no problem with it, but she clearly has had that work done).

    The show has suffocating mothers on today. I feel so sorry for the children, although I do think that the mother that turned her 9 year old son loose on NY's subway was pushing it. I think he's just a bit young, but everything worked out OK.

    How are your kids supposed to learn that they are somewhat competent if you never teach them that they are? Our children take their cues from us.
