Dr. Phil Faces Backlash Over Shelley Duvall Interview


And one of those calling for a boycott?

Stanley Kubrick's daughter!!

Dr. Phil is scheduled to air his interview with 'The Shining' star Shelley Duvall tomorrow on his show, speaking to the actress about her mental health.

In clips of the interview, Shelley explains to Phil that she is "very sick" and that she also believes her former 'Popeye' co-star Robin Williams is still alive. What comes most shocking however, is her appearance now. She's completely unrecognizable.

Vivian Kubrick, famed director Stanley's daughter, is speaking out against Phil and the interview, calling for a boycott.

As of right now, Phil hasn't responded to the backlash, and the interview will air tomorrow.

Penning a letter to the host, Vivian said:

You are putting Shelley Duvall ‘on show’ while she is suffering from a pitiable state of ill health. Unquestionably, this is purely a form of lurid and exploitive entertainment — it’s appallingly cruel.
Shelley Duvall was a movie star … whatever dignity a mere unfortunate creature might have in this world, is denied by your displaying her in this way.
I recoil in complete disgust. I hope others will join me in boycotting your utterly heartless form of entertainment, because it has nothing to do with compassionate healing.
Sincerely disgusted, Vivian

She delivered a speech that EVERYONE needs to hear!!

Speaking out on the ageism, sexism, and controversy surrounding her legendary career, the Queen of Pop held nothing back.

Including some tears.

If this speech ever needed to be delivered, it was now.

Thank you Madonna.

Read her entire speech below:

"I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," Madonna said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."

Recalling her life as a teenager when she first moved to New York: 

"People were dying of AIDS everywhere. It wasn’t safe to be gay, it wasn’t cool to be associated with the gay community," Madonna recalled. "It was …

So, while we all take that in, yours truly is also here to talk about about last nights episode of 'All Stars 3', because it was a doozy of an episode, and there's a lot to unpack.

While the episode fell victim to being rushed (non-supersized episode), it also gave us some of the first true gags of the season. Following a somewhat underwhelming Snatch Game, Mama Ru revealed that the two winning queens (Shangela and once again Ben Delacreme) EACH won their lip sync and would each have the power to give one of the bott…

I haven't recovered.......so...bare with me.

Britney Spears took the stage at tonight's Billboard Music Awards with a career-spanning medley, and girl didn't just bring it.....

SHE DESTROYED THE STAGE!!!

Our favorite Louisiana girl brought the house down right out the gate, with a scorching performance that included 'Work Bitch', 'Womanizer' (THAT BREAKDOWN!!!),'I Love Rock N' Roll,  'Breathe On Me', 'Touch of my Hand', 'Slave 4 U' and of course, 'Toxic'.

What has to be mentioned is Brit's energy on stage. Her smile was back, she moved like the pro we all fell in love with, and it was FIRE from start to finish.

And don't......oh DON'T.....ever forget this moment:
