NOTE: some small liberties taken with Photoshop

Dr. Phil McGraw — the drawling provider of straight talk who achieved fame on Oprah’s show — has been slapped with a lawsuit by a woman who claims she was the victim of sexual harassment at his office in 2007. TMZ says…

According to the suit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, a woman named Shirley Dieu claims she went to Phil to seek therapy in 2007 — but instead she claims the doc tried to “brainwash” her and force her to endure all sorts of physical and emotional abuse.

In the docs, Shirley claims Phil forced her to “be in the same room with a completely naked live man while he exposed his entire naked body, genitals and all.” [a.k.a. “foreplay” – Ed.]

Shirley alleges she tried to escape the building, but “was blocked by the staff to prevent her from leaving.” In the docs, Shirley also claims Phil “touched her left breast during her therapy session.”

Of course, anyone can sue anyone for anything, so I have no idea whether these allegations are justified or completely fabricated or somewhere in between. But just look at Dr. Phil. I know it’s wrong to judge a book by its cover, but you have to admit that that looks like a book about unwanted groping.
