          Center of Attention

          April 15, 2003

          How many ways can someone say, “Hey, look at me!”? Dr. Phil talks to guests who’ll do anything to be in the spotlight and to the people who put up with them.

          “My friends and co-workers are always telling me to shut up!” says Winnie, who likes to be the center of attention. Now she’s worried that her son, who’s been acting out, is taking on her traits.

          Kim knows that the volume of her voice drives people crazy. Strangers stop her in public places to tell her to lower her voice, and her boyfriend says he gets headaches from listening to her.


          Gerald, whose friends call him “Honky,” says, “I’ll do anything to make a fool of myself. I want to be spontaneous, outgoing, outrageous.” But his friend Kelly is fed up with his attention-grabbing antics.
