Dr. Phil Scolds Farmville Addict

I don't completely disagree with everything Dr. Phil says for once. Confronting a Farmville-obsessed mum in danger of neglecting her kids, he said, "You have a ridiculous addiction to a ridiculous computer game." He got that last part right.

The mum, named Teresa, evidently unplugged her home's wireless router to boot everyone from the family computer, then sneaked back online to tend her virtual crops. Bad mom! Bad mom! Dr. Phil held that factoid under her nose for a little bit, and Teresa tried to pin the extreme measures on her daughter's "attitude" when she's asked to get off the computer.

"No, it's not," Dr. Phil fired back. "You unplugged it because you have a ridiculous addiction to a ridiculous computer game that's interfering with your ability to be a mother. You needed a fix, and she wouldn't get off, so you had to create the opportunity."

Dr. Phil, who's taken on gaming addiction before, prescribed her a dose of "start a garden for real." Sounds like good medicine to me.

Dr. Phil Diagnoses Farmville Addiction [MTV Multiplayer]


    Real gardens are fun, I hear.

    Dr Phil is a hypocritical douchebag that regards ratings above actually helping people. All of his advice is the same generic dime store shit you hear in your first semester of Uni with his southern twist on it, you could seriously get better guidance on life from a self help book out of the bargain bin. With that being said, Farmville is stupid.

    his voice makes women wet.. thats why he got on the tele.

      Wrong. -1 internets for you.

    I was so expecting WoW to pop up somewhere in this article..

    Dr Phil has a ridiculous addiction to a ridiculous pos he calls a television program

    As a fellow doctor and close friend of Phil , I can tell you he has never been motivated by greed or money. You see life is like a good old fashion hog killing. Even if you don't get the best cuts of meat . You will still get pork. :)
