Dr. Phil is known for his ability to effectively counsel others , but recently an insider has revealed Dr. Phil is nothing like the person he makes people believe he is, comparing him to a fascist dictator who marches around barking orders on the set.

According to the source, Dr. Phil has a short temper and explodes with anger when things aren’t done his way — which includes yelling at his employees, his guests and even his wife, Robin McGraw!

“He’s like a fascist dictator on a set of quivering female servants,” the insider stated.

“You can feel the fear on the set. There seems to be a reason he hires a nearly all female staff…he seeks out the vulnerable type of person that’s reliant on their paycheck from him so they don’t fight back.”

The insider claims that while Dr. Phil acts like he’s there to help his guests, he actually intimidates them into getting the soundbites he’s seeking for high ratings.

“Guests often seize up once they get in front of Dr. Phil because he’s so intimidating. He’s nothing off camera like he appears on camera,” the source said.

“Before he gets to the soundbite he’s looking for there’s no sense of a gentle, sympathetic, professional view. It’s all about the soundbite, and he’ll bully the guest off-camera until he gets the soundbite he needs.”

Dr. Phil, who is 62 years of age, is also labeled by the insider as having a huge ego, being confrontational and emotionless.

“It’s all about feeding his narcissistic enormous ego. It’s his way and everyone else bows and stays clear of his path,” the source said.

“There are camera men that used to work for him — who will do any job they can get — that flat out refuse to work with him again because of the way he treats his staff and guests. They think he’s an absolute pig!”

His marriage has reportedly been on a downward spiral and the two are even butting heads over her role on his show.

“While Dr. Phil is filming an interview or segment, Robin will sometimes just sit in a back corner watching,” the source said.

“She has absolutely no say in the way things are run. And when Dr. Phil flips out or gets aggressive with staff and guests, Robin just sits there with a sad look on her face like she doesn’t agree with him, but can’t speak up because she’s just as fearful of him as everyone else!”
