Watch: Bam Margera Appeared on Dr. Phil’s TV Show
Former Jackass star and pro skater Bam Margera found himself on a wild ride last month that culminated in his arrest at a Hollywood hotel bar where he’d been drunkenly spinning a tale to two men about how he’d been paid $100,000 by a woman to catch one of them cheating. After the arrest, which saw him sitting on the floor of the lobby and refusing to willingly leave with police, he agreed to go to rehab — despite having just left rehab prior to hitting the hotel bar — at the urging of TV psychologist and personality Dr. Phil, on whose show Bam had appeared just prior to the entire sequence of events (which also saw him get “Dr. Phil” tattooed on his neck at at Von D’s shop).
The Dr. Phil episode on which Bam appeared has finally aired. Bam spoke to Dr. Phil about his struggles with substance abuse, his love for his two-year-old son Phoenix Wolf and his relationship with his wife, Nikki (who also appeared on the show), among other topics. Margera was invited onto the show after claiming Dr. Phil was the only person who could help him overcome his recent substance abuse issues, and while it remains to be seen whether the most recent effort will be successful, a post-interview segment that covered Margera’s above antics after the show concluded with Dr. Phil saying Margera is “making great strides” in rehab.
