Last week, Dr. Phil McGraw sat down with June Shannon for an interview that aired on his daytime talk show today.

Like just about everyone else in the world, Phil thinks Shannon is lying about her relationship with Mark McDaniel, and he said as much during an interview with TMZ today:

Asked by Harvey Levin if he believed a word that came out of June's mouth, Phil responded frankly:

"She rambled around, jumped all over the place, but she was not forthcoming at all. I did not believe what she had to say. I told her I did not believe what she had to say. I told her straight up, 'Look, it's the cover-up not the crime that always creates the problem."

As Phil's interview with Shannon aired across the country, the man known to audiences as Uncle Poodle posted photographic evidence of Shannon's relationship with McDaniel on his Facebook page, thus confirming McGraw's suspicions.

Sadly, Dr. Phil believes compulsive lying is the beginning of June's problems:

It's not unusual for celebrities to voice famous cartoon characters.

We've already provided a list of 21 stars who you may not realize are behind such animated creations as Rapunzel, Donnie Thornberry and Brother Bear on The Berenstain Bears.

But celebrities who look like cartoon characters?

That may be a little less common. 

Rihanna/Sideshow Bob
Granted, Rihanna changes her hair on a near daily basis. But she also has a penchant for stepping on rakes, we hear.

But there are plenty of examples out there, from a beloved pop singer who resembles a beloved mass murderer to the mother of a reality star who looks a lot like a really mean octopus.

Seriously. A LOT.

Sons of Guns star Stephanie Hayden opened up to Dr. Phil about her father, Will Hayden, allegedly raping her and her sister, then passed out after the interview.

Seconds after Stephanie finished speaking with Phil in an emotional sit-down last week, she fainted and blacked out on the set in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.

Stephanie literally fell unconscious into her husband's arms as she walked away.

Someone called 911, but Stephanie, who had mentioned being stressed about discussing the shocking rape case, regained consciousness by the time EMTs arrived.

She divulged details for the first time to Dr. Phil, so it must have been traumatic.

Discovery canceled Sons of Guns after Will Hayden's arrest on rape charges, and Phil got the first interview in which she details the abuse she claims she suffered.

Will Hayden is being held without bail. More clips when they become available ...

Earlier this week, Rihanna caused quite the online kerfuffle when she Tweeted #FreePalestine.

The singer quickly deleted the message, with sources somehow saying she didn't mean to send it in the first place.

We're not sure how that's possible, but we're are sure Rihanna isn't the first celebrity to get into trouble for posting on Twitter.

Heck, she wasn't the first celebrity to Tweet about freeing Palestine this month alone, with Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard writing the same words online before also taking them down.

What other stars have regretting getting into politics over the Internet? We rundown several cases below and come to the same conclusion each time: stick to acting... or singing... or whatever it is you do, Kim Kardashian.

Leave the politics to the politicians.

Rihanna
Rihanna claims she never meant to Tweet #FreePalestine. The message was taken down immediately after going up.

Craigslist Killer Miranda Barbour didn't become a murderer on her own, sister Ashley Dean told Dr. Phil. Their mother, Elizabeth, made her that way.

"My mom made Miranda the way she is," Ashley cried. "My mom has been a bad mom."

In an interview with Dr. Phil, Ashley accused their mother of being inattentive and neglectful which she says led to Miranda Barbour's current state.

Miranda Barbour Mug Shot
Miranda Barbour, a.k.a. the Craigslist Killer, massacred at least 22 but fewer than 100 individuals, she claims.

"I just want to make it clear that it's not my sister's fault," Dean said. "She's not this monster on her own. It's come from someone else."

In 2012, Miranda Barbour reached out to Dr. Phil to get help for their mother whom she called a "pill-popping drunk." McGraw says they tried to reach out to her but couldn't make contact.

Ashley Dean confirmed her sister's statements about their mother saying that they were both sexually assaulted when Ashley was 6 and Miranda was 3. While their abuser went to prison for 9 years, that, Ashley believes, is part of the reason Miranda turned out the way she did.

"You have to understand where Miranda's coming from," Ashley explained. "You have to understand what happened to her when she was younger."

Dr. Phil incurred the wrath of Twitter when he decided to followers on the question of whether it's okay to have sex with a girl who has had too much to drink.

We're not paraphrasing. This is what he wrote:

Dr. P Tweet

Phil, to be fair, often questions Twitter followers about themes for upcoming shows, and was just following that familiar pattern with this effort.

Still, what many felt was the uncalled-for nature of this Tweet, which was quickly deleted, spurred backlash and led to a Change (dot) org petition.

Carmen Rios, a former college sexual assault activist, encouraged supporters to call on Phil to host a show to educate his viewers on assault prevention:

Dr. Phil's production company is suing Gawker Media over its use of an interview with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man behind the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax.

The suit claims the company, via its sports blog Deadspin, posted the best parts of the interview online before it had aired in the majority of Dr. Phil markets.

The lawsuit also criticizes the entire "system" of content aggregation.

"A remora is a fish, sometimes called a suckerfish, which attaches itself to other fish like sharks," reads the legal complaint filed this week in Texas.

"The host fish gains nothing from the relationship but the remora is enriched by obtaining benefits (usually food and transportation) from the host."

Farrah Abraham stopped by Dr. Phil on Friday to clear up rumors about her sex tape ... but the doctor ended up taking her to task over that and a lot more.

Hammering her in a surprisingly patient tone, Dr. Phil touched on her DUI arrest, and accused the Teen Mom star of not taking responsibility for her actions.

When she bristled at his questioning, he responded:

"You will argue no matter what I said because you have a chip on your shoulder... you're upset because I ask questions you don't have good answers for."

According to Manti Te'o, he is not gay. In fact, he is far, far, far from gay.

But Ronaiah Tuiasosopo? The man who has admitted to being behind the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax that rocked a school and a country?

In a preview of the interview that will run later this week, Dr. Phil appeared this morning on The Today Show and said of Ronaiah:

"Here we have a young man that fell deeply, romantically in love," he says, adding of the taped Q&A: "I ask him straight up... was this a romantic relationship with you? And he says, 'Yes.'"

Ronaiah Tuiasosopo is about to bare all to Dr. Phil.

According to TMZ sources, the man who has allegedly admitted to masterminding the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax recorded an interview with the attention-starved psychologist yesterday and it will air some time next week.

Described as "emotional and deep," the sit-down reportedly took place after Tuiasosopo and Dr. Phil watched the Manti Te'o interview with Katie Couric, during which the linebacker denied any role in the scheme.
