Mean Betty on Evander Holyfield, Dr. Phil and Haiti
Yes, Mean Betty agrees those three things should never be in a sentence together.
A horrible earthquake causing the death of over two hundred thousand people and absolute misery and pain to hundreds of thousands of other poor souls … what’s the first thing that makes YOU think of?
Why: Publicity Opportunity, of course!
What better way to get some attention than my hopping on the Help Haiti Bandwagon? The more the merrier!
At least, that seems to be the thinking behind the alleged proposed Evander Holyfield and Dr. Phil Go to Haiti adventure. Yes, dears, RadarOnline is reporting that not only does heavyweight champ Evander Holyfield want to appear on Dr. Phil’s couch with his beleaguered wife Candi for a little “therapy,” but he also wants to tag along with Dr. Phil to Haiti, and bring along $40,000 worth of … food? Medical supplies? NO. Evander’s “nutritional supplements.”
Because isn’t that exactly what the people of Haiti need right now?
Nutritional supplements from an “alleged” wife-beating boxer and Dr. Phil… Mean Betty asks you, kitten darlings, haven’t the people of Haiti suffered enough?
After Candi called the police on Evander, telling them he hit her in the face, their marriage has been, understandably, strained. In fact, Candi filed for divorce, but then she changed her mind when the couple realized their marriage could indeed be saved … but ONLY by Dr. Phil.
The charming couple released a statement saying, “We are in agreement that we both are moving forward to reach out to Dr. Phil one-on-one as we believe he is the only one who can help us at this time.”
Of course he’s the only one! The only one who can get you some publicity and move some of these nutritional supplements!
“We each admire and respect Dr. Phil for his down to earth and heartfelt approach in working with couples and relationships in a positive and uplifting way.”
Naturally! And then you can do a two-for-one deal and get some Helping Haiti action out of it as well. A publicist’s dream.
Doesn’t it just warm the cockles of your heart – the selflessness, the bravery, the pure generosity and concern for fellow mankind?
Truly it does.
