Is Dr. Laura's son a deranged masochist?

Tbdlaura060107 What better scandal for a woman who gives parenting advice than to have her own son embarrass her? TMZ reports on an apparent link between Dr. Laura Schlessinger and a Web site credited to her 21-year-old son Deryk, who is an Army specialist serving in Afghanistan.

The MySpace profile, which features animated depictions of rape, torture, murder and child molestation, also is illustrated with a photo of a man holding a pistol in his mouth and giving a thumbs-up sign, among others.

The page was pulled from the social site last week, the Salt Lake Tribune reported, and it is not known whether the profile really was maintained by Deryk or an imposter.

Either way, Dr. Laura is taking a leave of absence from writing her column until this blow over, but she’ll still be on the radio in case you need more of that great advice.
