'TRAIN WRECK' on the Dr. Phil Show

Tough Questions From America's Psychologist for Anna Nicole Smith's

Half-Sister Promoting Her Tell-All Book

Apr 09, 2007, 01:00 ET from DR. PHIL

    HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Donna Hogan, the estranged
 half-sister of Anna Nicole Smith, made her first media appearance in
 support of a "tell-all" book about Smith on an episode of DR. PHIL,
 scheduled to air Wednesday, April 11 (check your local listings). When
 Hogan told Dr. Phil that she wrote the book TRAIN WRECK: The Life and Death
 of Anna Nicole Smith to "set the record straight" about Smith, McGraw asked
 how she could do that, considering she had not seen or spoken to her sister
 in 12 years. McGraw also asked if it was true that the only time Hogan was
 in Smith's physical presence was years ago when Hogan stood in line to
 greet Smith at a bookstore calendar signing, which Hogan denied. The Dr.
 Phil show agreed to embargo the episode, which was taped weeks ago, until
 April 11th, the week of the book's official publication date, at the
 request of Hogan's publisher. But directly after the taping, Michael Viner,
 president of Phoenix Books, Hogan's publisher, reacting to Dr. Phil's tough
 questioning of Hogan regarding the book's content, asked the executive
 producers of DR. PHIL not to broadcast the episode.
