Dr. Phil Referees Cathouse Catfight

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Sweeps time must be upon us because Dr. Phil is using the sex industry to pimp his ratings.

On Monday (May 2), Dr. Phil is devoting an episode to prostitution and will interview twin sisters who are considering working at a legal brothel in Nevada.

But eyewitnesses say the taping turned into a cathouse cat fight between Moonlight Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof and former prostitute Anne Bissell, who runs a support group called Sex Industry Survivors.

Bissell tried to talk about longterm dangers of sex work such as disease and flashbacks but says Hof kept calling her a “criminal” because she never worked in a state with legal prostitution.

Hof says he merely wanted an intelligent conversation and claims there’s “nothing worse than a born-again ho playing a righteous woman.”

Things got so heated between Bissell and Hof that, after the taping, producers had her escorted away for her safety and she’s still not sure if her message got through to the girls.

Well, it did and it didn’t. Hof says neither twin is working for him but claims that’s because he’s dating them.
