When we heard that Dr. Phil was going to be interviewing DMX, we assumed that Dr. Phil was going to be his normal, hard hitting self. He was going to ask DMX the tough questions, make him take responsibility for his actions and be honest about the problem he still seems to have. But that was not the case. That’s not, at all, what we saw today. Instead, it seemed that Dr. Phil had DMX on the show to boost ratings, DMX was there to collect a check and maybe even tell a joke or two. There was so much applause from the audience, you would have thought DMX was there to promote an album and not discuss the issues he’s had with drugs, the law and paying child support. It was odd and even a bit frustrating. But there were a few interesting moments you should note in case you missed the interview.
Dr. Phil: Why do you have so many children?
DMX: I’m not the one having them.
*Sigh* Of course you’re not the one having them. We don’t need a biology lesson. The issue is, though you admittedly can’t afford child support of your 12 children, you still continue to have them. Dr. Phil was wondering if perhaps there was a reason for this seemingly irrational behavior and you completely dodged the question.
