Say what you will about Dr. Phil McGraw, but he knows how to keep a secret. He was apparently injured in a serious dirt bike accident in February and kept it from his fans.
An insider said, “Dr. Phil, practicing a dirt bike trick with some of his Hollywood stuntman friends, landed awkwardly and dislocated his shoulder and dinged up a few ribs.” His friends were teasing him by saying, “Wheels first, Doc. Wheels first!”
McGraw’s injuries were so severe that he was laid up in bed for a time. The secrecy was so intense that staffers called the situation “motorcyclegate.” Fortunately, all’s well that ends well and Dr. Phil is fine now.
