Danielle Bregoli, 13, spoke with Dr. Phil about her stay at the Turn-About Ranch, but also had some harsh words for the talk show host.
Dr. Phil asked Bregoli if she thinks her Internet attention has been good or bad. “I guess what’s good for you is I made you just like how Oprah made you,” answered Bregoli, smiling. “You were nothin’ before I came on this show.”
“Thank you for that,” replied Dr. Phil.
Bregoli became famous after her initial appearance on the show. She angrily yelled, “Cash me ousside, how ‘bout dat,” to audience members. She believed they were laughing at her and in return wanted to fight them outside.
Her mom, Barbara Ann Bregoli wanted Danielle to thank Dr. Phil for his help, but she resisted. “You have to admit, he helped you a lot,” Barbara said, to which Danielle responded back, “If it wasn’t for his money, you can’t say if it wasn’t for him. If it wasn’t for him and his people, I wouldn’t be the way I am. I could’ve paid for it myself.”
She finally gave in and thanked the mentor.
