Doctor Laura

JESS: You know, you don’t know anything about me, or my life, or my mom, or Luke, so why don’t you Doctor Laura someone else?

American talk show host and author Laura Schlessinger (born 1947), best known for her radio show, The Dr Laura Program. With a background as a marriage and family counsellor, Schlessinger typically answers callers’ requests for advice, and gives short monologues on social and political topics.

Her show was highly popular, but around the early 2000s began losing listeners because Schlessinger was giving less relationship advice and more lectures on morality and conservative politics, in particular, her opposition to homosexuality. No doubt this comparison would have infuriated Lorelai, as it was intended to.
