My husband and I are avid fans of the Dr Phil Show. We tape his shows during the day and then watch it in the evening....Believe when i say this is our highlight for the evening. We have learned so much about ourselves individually and as a couple...He has been a real blessing in our marriage...Thank you Dr Phil

We recently watched the episode that had Donnie Osmond on it...I must say this had to be one of Dr Phils best shows..Though it did have painful memories and topics for Donnie, it was at the same time full of laughter and happy times...It was so good to find out that the "idols" from way back are doing so well and are sensitive and caring, married to the same spouse for 36 yrs(?) and the fact that he has not been in the medias headlines for drugs, sex scandals, etc...

I was extremely touched by his emotions when Stevie Wonder appeared on stage...What a glorious moment of reunion for both of them. Thank you again Dr Phil for having such an awesome "Happy" episode. It is good to know that Dr Phil has such a good heart and will do such nice things for people.


Thank you again Dr Phil for your tremendous  help and advice for this family that lives in Coats, Kansas population of maybe 50!!!!

I was the tagalong little sister who used to hide in my sister's closet while she and her girlfriends would play Donny Osmond's records. Although my sister was less than thrilled to have me tag along, I was willing to tempt the fates and incur her wrath just to be able to hear Donny Osmond. I still play Osmond CDs and am a huge fan who sings loud and poorly to each and every wonderful note! OH...maybe that's why my sister made me sit in the closet.

I've been a follower of the Osmonds for over 40 years; Donny was always my favorite. Exactly one year ago this weekend I was at their Las Vegas show and was amazed at it. I sat right beside the stage; when Marie laid down on the floor in front of us my husband helped her get up. Donny came to shake his hand and he said "No, don't shake my hand; please hug my wife. She's been a fan of yours for over 40 years and went to every concert you ever performed in Nashville." And he did; he was so kind. He knelt in front of me and asked "Did you really come to all of them?" When I said yes he gave me the kindest hug and whispered thank you to me several times. When I met them backstage, he autographed a concert ticket I had saved from 1972. I still think he's an amazing man and an inspiration. Loved the show. Thank you Donny!

Wow!  It was so good to see Donny on the show yesterday!  You are still my idol!  I remember having posters on my closet door and kissing them every night!  To find out also that he is taking Protandim!  No wonder he looks so good.  My family and I have been taking it for about a year now and we feel the same way about it!  Best kept secret ever!  Thanks again Dr. Phil for reminding me how cute Donny is!! Inside and out!!!!
