How Oprah "Created" Dr. Phil

CC | tv-pg
Oprah first met Dr. Phil 1996, when she was on trial with the beef industry in Texas. As she was dealing with cattlemen who claimed she defamed the beef industry on her show, she hired Dr. Phil to assist and counsel her. It was there that she learned about his straight-forward approach to life coaching.

"I try very much to do what works, and to meet people where they are," Dr. Phil said in this after-the-show moment from 2003. "And if what I'm doing isn't working for that person, I change it and do something that will."

Watch the above video as Oprah and Dr. Phil look back on the lessons learned from Oprah's trial. Plus, find out how Dr. Phil became the best-selling author and TV star that he is today!
