Ron White: Unfiltered and Off the Cuff Funny
Ever wish you could live a life where you could say exactly what is on your mind at all times? Very few people actually have that kind of freedom. It takes a certain kind of sacrifice in order to reap the rewards that come from being true to who you are. Such people must take the risk that being yourself will lead to being successful. There’s a certain kind of character a person must have to take such a risk- whatever happens is yours and yours alone- success or failure- its nobody else’s fault. We like that kind of character on Phil In The Blanks. True success ultimately comes down to self-ownership and the courage to take responsibility for oneself- all the good and all the not so good. Ron White has walked that walk, and because he’s walked the walk he can talk the talk- and when he talks people laugh and they laugh hard. He’s a Navy Vietnam vet, a blue-collar comedy icon, a producer, an actor, a whiskey drinking, cigar smoking, unfiltered, off the cuff stand up from a small town in Texas who’s seen it all, done it all and landed on his feet in front of microphone.  One has to love Ron White for all the good and for how he helps others learn to walk in their own truth the best they can. https://www.drphilintheblanks.com/
Steve Harvey Campaigns for More
Dr. Phil taps into the huge reservoir of strength and talent that is Steve Harvey. Twenty-seven years doing something is impressive. Being successful at something for twenty-seven years is even more impressive. Being one of the best at something for twenty-seven years is absolutely incredible. Being the best at something that is extremely difficult. Steve Harvey is one of the best stand-up comics ever. For most people that would be everything. For Steve Harvey that’s getting out of bed in the morning. You also know him as an award-winning radio host, an award-winning television host, a successful actor, a producer, a respected and cherished leader in his community, a man who does not shy away from controversy, a devout Christian, husband and father and the man to turn to when in need of a little dating advice. Someone who makes success look so easy is truly accomplished, but like every successful person he has had to work hard to overcome some truly frightening obstacles. Steve Harvey has a life-time of amazing accomplishments and yet it feels like he’s only just begun. For more information: https://www.drphilintheblanks.com/

King interviews top newsmakers and delivers original reporting to CBS THIS MORNING and all CBS News broadcasts and platforms. She is also Editor-at-Large of the award-winning O The Oprah Magazine. Since joining CBS News in 2011, King has conducted revealing and news-making interviews with world leaders, political figures and celebrities. Among her numerous awards are three Emmys and the American Women in Radio & Television’s Gracie Award for Outstanding Radio Talk Show. When they say “it couldn’t happen to a nicer person” they’re talking about Gayle King. She's one of those people who keeps us connected to honesty, truth and decency, and for that she is more valuable than ever before, and why we want her here on Phil In The Blanks.

NBA Champion Metta World Peace: No Malice
Americans are fascinated by athletes. There is an entire media industry built around critiquing their work, assessing their value and holding them accountable to the adoring public that craves their success and pays their salaries. Athletes rarely allow the public to see beyond carefully crafted branding strategies. Some shun the public’s attention altogether, some crave that attention and can’t live without out it. Metta World Peace is one of those rare athletes who makes no pretense of hiding who he is and what he’s about. Metta has struck a chord with Americans. Whether by design or not he is more transparent and accessible than most athletes and exerts far less control over what he allows us to see. When he won a championship ring with the Los Angeles Lakers, one of the most recognizable and valuable sports franchises on Earth, he thanked his psychiatrist in his post-game comments. Not the kind of thing most athletes would do. But our guest has had to struggle for everything and knows what is real accomplishment. He was raised on public basketball courts in New York City where people have been killed over petty personal disputes. He has had to look over his shoulder his whole life. In one of the most competitive sports, he became a first-round pick in the NBA, an All-Star, won the NBA’s coveted Defensive Player of the Year Award, and of course, became a World Champion. While achieving the impossible he struggled to leave his past behind. He has fought his battle with mental health in front of the cameras and has become an important voice in understanding mental health and how mental health problems impact athletes and athletics. He has come so far from his rough and tumble roots that he won the J. Walter Kennedy Award given to the NBA player who shows outstanding service and dedication to the community. Of all the things he has achieved that is among the most impressive, because it shows the true colors of this playground warrior.

Charles Barkley Rebounds Off The Court
Anyone who can be called both "Sir Charles" and "The Round Mound Of Rebound" has got to be an interesting person. Charles Barkley is serious and regal and joyous and athletic and always funny whether he's trash talking NBA Legends on the basketball court or offering indispensable insight into the game while hosting his television talk show.  The one thing Sir Charles has in abundance, aside from talent and numerous NBA records, is personality. He is one of the country's most watchable television stars and most beloved voices. There is no one who doesn't stop and listen when Sir Charles speaks. Fearless, transparent, wise beyond his years, spot on insights and a weary honesty that captivates are just some of the qualities and characteristics this giant possesses. Here on Phil In The Blanks we are going to give The Man a platform to express himself so we may get to know him better than ever and enjoy all those things he can't bring forward on television. There is so much fun to have and so little time! For more information: https://www.drphilintheblanks.com/

Emmitt Smith On The NFL, ‘Dancing With The Stars’ And More
When it comes to judging future success, most people get it wrong, one way or the other. There are simply too many variables. One of the hardest things to do on Earth is play in the National Football League. It is also one of the hardest places to predict individual success. Everyone in the league is superior in some way: speed, strength, agility, skill, instinct, passion. Separation between best and worst is often measured in split seconds or a couple of inches, or in a single moment of inspiration or hesitation. Think about what it takes to be the best ever in a world like the NFL, to somehow move beyond superior and live there. Emmitt Smith thought about it then went out and did it. But when he was coming out of high school a man considered to be an expert at judging young football talent said about him: “he is a lugger, not a runner. He’s not fast. He can’t get around the corner. When he falls flat on his face, remember where you heard it first.” The most important variable in becoming the best running back in the history of the NFL is being Emmitt Smith.

She says she noticed it come on strong when she was 17. Hear why she says it’s important for her to share her story. For more information: www.drphilintheblanks.com
