The man with the golden voice, Ted Williams

A rep for the Dr. Phil show has confirmed that homeless man-turned-MSNBC announcer Ted "Golden Voice" Williams is checking himself into rehab. Williams, who quickly became a YouTube sensation after a video showcasing his voice went viral, admitted on Dr. Phil that he had begun drinking again.

Last week, Williams and his daughter Janey were detained by the LAPD for a shouting match that turned ugly in a Los Angeles hotel.

That's funny, because Dr. Phil was not exercising the same discretion on camera as he went in on Williams for his problems.
