Drphil According to the AP, "The memorabilia dealer who led O.J. Simpson to a hotel room where an infamous robbery occurred filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the "Dr. Phil" show claiming his remarks in an interview were spliced to change their meaning."

Thomas Riccio is suing "Dr. Phil" McGraw for defamation, fraud, emotional distress and being portrayed in a false light. He claims the show edited his interview to make it appear that he was confessing to doing things he did not do, and that Dr. Phil said Riccio "set O.J. Simpson up and told people to bring guns into the room."
