Dr. Phil’s Son Engaged to Playboy Triplet


The son of TV psychologist Dr. Phil has proposed to former Playboy playmate Erica Dahm, one of the triplet Dahm sisters.  McGraw is a best-selling author of self-help books himself.

Dahm exclaimed, "Oh gosh, is this real?" after the Aug. 26 proposal, Hayes said.

The couple will wed in Los Angeles but the date was not revealed.

Jay McGraw designed the 5-carat diamond, emerald and platinum engagement ring.


Jay McGraw is best known for writing the best-selling Life Strategies for Teens, which was positioned as an youthful offshoot of Dr. Phillip McGraw’s popular "Life Strategies." 


The book’s back cover explains Jay Mcgraw’s aim in speaking directly to today’s teens:

Are you as tired as I am of books constantly telling you about doing your best to understand your parents, doing your homework, making curfew, getting a haircut, dropping that hemline, and blah, blah, blah?

Well, you don’t have to be anymore.  Life Strategies for Teens is the first guide to teenage  life that won’t tell you what to do, or what to be, but rather how to live life best. Employing the techniques from Dr. Phillip C. McGraw’s Life Strategies, his son Jay provides teens with the Ten Laws of Life, which make the journey to adulthood an easier and more fulfilling trip.

I think it is great when a self-help author helps today’s youth.  Dr. Phil should be proud.


I especially respect Jay McGraw for practicing what he preaches, using his own "techniques" in his own life to inspire others.  

In fact, here are the top four "Laws of Life," as outlined in this well-received best-seller (not really):

Rule # 1)   Kids, if you want an excellent life, this is very important because everything flows from this, so listen carefully.  Make sure your father gets to go on Oprah, because that will make him famous and give him the opportunity to have his own TV show.   

Rule #2)   Once your father has his own TV show, have him put his name and face on some unhealthy candy bars to sell to "fat people" even if your father is a bit on the hefty side himself.  Make even more money.

Rule #3)  Use your father’s connections to write you own book on the same subject — but for teens — (even though you don’t really have the qualifications) and take a job hosting some dumb reality show like "Renovate My Family."  Don’t let it bother you that everyone just calls you Mr. Your Father’s Name’s son.

Rule #4)   At a certain point, you’re going to want to share your love with someone special.  Look for a soulmate that will complete you, someone that brings respect and dignity to your relationship — someone like one of the Playboy magazine "triplets."  This way, when you fantasize about your wife’s hot sisters, it’s not really "cheating."


  1. The Moviequill

    April Fools will be a blast around his place, especially when they play ‘Guess Who’s In My Bed?’

  2. modigli

    Hahahahaha!!!! …. Too funny cause it’s SO TRUE!

  3. Nancy French

    Is it just me, or is Dr. Phil’s son CREEPY?

  4. kate

    Holy crap! That is too damn funny and you are so damn right Neil. I can’t stand Dr. Phil and his holier than thou family.

  5. JJ MacMillan

    Doesn’t anyone besides me find it creepy when they pose sisters together suggestively. I mean, what are they implying? Incest? Could that be any more disgusting?

    Why yes. You could throw in Dr. Phil’s creepy son and make it totally repugnant.

    Excuse me, I have to go blind myself.

  6. Bad Maria

    Jay looks like one of those guys they show on Cold Case Files when they’re walking you through the case 10 years later and you look at his eyes and go AND NO ONE SAW THAT THIS BOY WAS PSYCHOTIC!!!

  7. Claven

    He looks a little date rapey.

  8. anonymous city girl

    the whole… i posed nekkid with my sisters thing is just gross.

  9. ms. sizzle

    yeah the naked sisters thing…that’s taking the two girls at once fantasy too far. i must be kind of nuts cuz i don’t even think they are that attractive.

    how in the hell did dr. phil’s son even meet the triplets? fame sure does take you crazy places.

    ooh! maybe the will do a reality show like nick and jessica and we can watch their demise.

  10. Leesa

    He does look creepy.

  11. Neil

    By the way — info for the men (and lesbian readers) — I didn’t want to get in trouble again posting naked women when you are supposedly “at work” — but if you search for it on Google you will find photos of the Dahm sisters naked and sitting in some sort of hot tub. Now, I like photos of naked women as much as the next guy (or lesbian), but seeing this trio with their six identical fake boobs standing in a row has given me a temporary case of ED (Look it up if you don’t get the joke. I’ve heard it mentioned on a radio commercial three times today. Does every ailment need some cutesy name? Didn’t Acid Reflux Disease used to be called heartburn? What am I doing, you idiot?! Save this for another post!)

  12. Missy

    Honestly, what has happened to this blog? It used to be funny ass shit and now it’s like you’re just syndicating the content from Extra and Entertainment Tonight.

    C’mon Neil baby – let’s get the train back on the tracks!

  13. Neil

    Missy, that is so untrue and unfair! Wait until you read my new post about Jennifer Aniston and how she’s finding a new way to happiness through yoga.

  14. amanda

    i hate coat-tailers…not tailors…tail-ers. melissa rivers…need i say more.

  15. Neil

    Amanda, I should admit that my mother did once get me a summer job in the publishing house she worked at where I filed letters in an un-air-conditioned room (but got treated to lunch a lot.

  16. Melliferous

    If Jay McGraw’s book wasn’t selling before, it will now. Think about all the teenage boys eager to learn the proper “technique” for securing their own playmate.

    I agree, sister porn is gross.

  17. danielle

    I heard that his next book “Life Strategies: for bagging an ex-playboy babe,” is expected to be an international best seller.

  18. ms. sizzle

    *Ahem* Some of us hetero ladies don’t mine looking at naked chicks either. It isn’t just for the straight men and the lesbians.

  19. jenny

    EXCELLENT, Neil. Well Done!!! How long will the marriage (er-engagement) last? Shall we start taking bets?

  20. ladymathematician

    Because me and my sisters love to hang out naked together. And have pillow fights. While our naturally huge breasts stay as perky as if they were filled with silicone/saline. Don’t you guys?

    I want to write a book about how to live your life. I’m really good at being bossy. Dr. Phil, wanna adopt me?

  21. Edgy Mama

    Oh Neil, I needed this today. I could care less about the triplets, but the fact that this guy got his bunch of crap published pisses me off!

  22. Neil

    OK, I did the hard work for you: a photo of the Dahm triplets. I don’t even find them pretty.

    And fake – fake – fake – fake – fake – fake.

    This is one of the most important things that Sophia taught me during our marriage. She’s an expert in picking the fake ones out from across the street. Anyone who’s studied physics or understands Newtonian gravity knows what I’m talking about.

  23. Danny

    Okay, even though I can’t stand it when people start judging celebrities they have never met I nevertheless feel compelled to say just one thing: Dr, Phil, his son, and those android Playboy triplets are OF THE DEVIL!! I actually used to TiVo Dr. Phil (much to my wife’s legitimate horror) until his endless self-aggrandizing, self-promoting, bullying, arrogant, smug-ass behavior turned me off for good. And the only thing worse than Dr. Phil is Dr. Phil-Lite, his son, who was always introduced on the show as a Major Hottie (did they instruct the audience to go nuts whenever Jay came on the set?). My ten-year-old could give better advice to teens than him. And hell, I don’t know those Dahm sisters, maybe they are nice, wonderful people. So why does his engagement to one of them make me want to puke? Because they’re presented as the “ideal?” Like we’re all supposed to say, “Wow, what a lucky guy! He scored a playmate, and there’s two more of them at home!” Yuck, yuck, yuck. I hate being so judgmental, but there you have it. I once brought up something Dr. Phil said when I was having a session with my old therapist and she went ballistic. “He’s NOT a real therapist! He’s an idiot!!” she screamed. Then she went on to be the in-house therapist on not one, but two reality shows—two of the WORST reality shows every created. Oy.

  24. Neil

    I have to admit that I actually found Dr. Phil refreshing when he came on Oprah. But then he really lost it when he suddenly became a “diet” expert.

    According to Men’s Fitness magazine, the main ingredients in Dr. Phil’s Shape Up! bar are: fudge syrup (a mix of corn syrup, sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, chocolate, and oil)

    Number of carbs in one bar: 28 grams (the same as in three dark-chocolate candy bars)

    Total grams of fat in the bar: 8 grams (the same amount in one big ole pork-sausage patty)

    Here’s an interesting article on his ridiculous diet products:

  25. Rachel

    I thought men liked fake boobs.

  26. Anne

    One look at the pictures and I was already laughing. He’s ridiculous, they’re creepy and orange (that pose???), and that girl smiling behind Dr. Phil… Very effective combo.

  27. Jason W.

    I thought all three girls were dating Hugh Hefner. Or were those different triplets?

  28. Brooke

    I think the funniest part of this is that the picture of the triplets is called “twins”.

  29. Neil

    Oops, that was me, Brooke. My mind must have been thinking in pairs. I don’t know why…

  30. Richard

    C’mon, Missy baby, shit is not funny. But Neil’s blog is always funny, no matter what!

  31. MA

    So, where did I go wrong with my life?

  32. Spinning Girl

    Fell on floor. Laughed. Peed. Peed again.

  33. akaky

    How can he tell them apart? As for fake boobs, Rachel, yes, men like them up to a point, that point being when the girl hits in the face with them and breaks some of our teeth. Be that as it may, it looks to me as though those girls have enough silicone between them to start their own beach, which may or may not be a good thing in California.

  34. Priss

    Jay is obviously gay. First there’s the name rhyme thing, then his facial expression, and don’t forget the manliness of his fiancee. It’s beard-a-rama!

  35. Jen

    Jay is a guy who has been helping out teens and working with them etc then he marries a playmate who also used to be a hef girlfriend that lived in the mansion so you know she has BEEN AROUND! YUCK and has nude pics all over the net that is free access just do a search and there she is in all her glory how is that a role model for kids telling them how to live their lives?? LOL Also a pic of Jay with her at a Hef Party where a bunch of women are pretty much naked they have PAINTED ON costumes! And he works with kids?? Sure isnt being much of an example for them.. I will NOT buy my kids one of his books and he will not SOCIATE with my kids!! Dr Phil is always on his show putting down others who do nude things and about nudity/porn on internet but yet he welcomes her and says “she is a wonderful lady”, “we are so proud”, and “we would adopt her if Jay didnt marry her into the family” on his website and they have a ad of congrats for Jay and his playmate and right next to it a ad for Robin who is speaking at the WOMEN OF FAITH convention. Is she really suitable for that now? I think since they moved to Beverly hills they have really lost their roots! And always we are friends with So and so and we did this and we did that always bragging about what they do and who they know etc I used to look up to them but this celebrity thing has really gotten to their heads! And they are really going down hill!!

  36. Neil

    I used to like Dr. Phil when he was first on Oprah. But like you said, he is now the biggest hypocrite. And he seems very creepy to me.

  37. plain jane

    Thank God! I finally got to the end of comments to see Neil express my opinion. Dr. Phil CREEPS me out, never liked him, wouldn’t trust him, don’t listen to him. Yuuuuuck.

  38. chris

    Unbelievable, yet OH-SO- predictable. I don’t get it. Dr. Phil espouses himself as the most morally righteous f*** on t.v., lambasting women who use their bodies and sexuality for personal and financial gain. The best BS was watching his folks on t.v. promoting the garrish L.A. wedding. JESUS H. CHRIST!!!

    I give it 2 years, tops. Hope the son has an iron clad pre-marital agreement, HIV test, and also gets a better hair plug transplant in the future or honey won’t even be sticking it out the minimal 2 years.

    In Dr. Phil speak, “folks, this just ain’t gonna last, OKAY”!!!

  39. Dee

    yeech! dr phil has pimped his whole family – wife – kids – even dog….repulsive…everyone writes a book and people-too lazy to think for themselves, buy it, and regurgitate republican, superficial christian babble…yeech
