I never thought I'd be Team Silex about anything, and I mean ANYTHING. However, when you have to choose between somewhat creepy Silex and uber-creepy Dourtney, what else can you do but side with former Real Housewives of New YorkstarsAlex McCord and Simon van Kempen? Of course, I'm talking about a feud that started out on VH1's Couples Therapy, so perhaps that is where I first went astray. I am addicted to this insanity, and I'm not proud of it.
Joining Silex in the therapy sessions, at least up until a week or so ago, was everyone's favorite May-December romantics 52-year-old "actor" Doug Hutchison and his 18-year-old wife Courtney Stodden. I don't have to tell y'all that she was sixteen when the pair married and seventeen when Couples Therapy filmed. Due to child labor laws, Courtney wasn't allowed to film as much as the grown-ups and couldn't stay in a bedroom with her hubby.
If you've been tuning into the train wreck (and I know you secretly have!), you know that Courtney's parade of bikini tops as shirts, Lucite stripper platforms, and belts that she tried to pass off as skirts had the other couples up in arms. Her wardrobe was deemed a major distraction, and Dr. Jenn imposed a strict dress code. Courtney was forced to wear things that covered her belly and didn't flash her bits. The passive aggressive Courtney adhered to this dress code for one day, although she clearly shopped for her conservative clothing at Hoochies 'R Us. From that point, things continued to go down hill for Dourtney. No amount of gum smacking, eye rolling, or hair twirling could save them!
Some news today from the Land of Ewww, which is of course governed by King Doug Hutchison and his Queen Princess Courtney Stodden. The fifty-two-year-old "actor" and his eighteen-year-old wife (who was sixteen when they wed) have been making waves on the latest season of Couples Therapy.
The duo has always flaunted their love (for lack of a better word) and her body wherever they could find paparazzi, but it seems despite all the semi-pornographic pictures of the pair there seems to be trouble in paradise. That, coupled with the fact they both are major fame whores, has brought them front and center to VH1's train wreck.
Shayne and Nik haven't seen eye-to-eye with Doug and Courtney since day one and have openly expressed their disgust for both their marriage and Courtney's inappropriate clothing. Nik even went so far as to call Doug a child molester. And apparently the worst is yet to come!
Quick question…how can you tell when people just want to live their lives in the reality television spotlight? Apparently the answer lies within VH1′s show Couples Therapy. It seems to be the show that has-been reality couples go to revive their careers (how’s that working out, Guard and ProtectKasey Kahl?). Even the couples who are adamant about their strong unions seem so seek out the “self-help” show when they fall off the reality radar.
Case in point? Silex. Alex McCord and Simon Van Kempen were attached at the hip for their seasons on Real Housewives of New York. The goo-goo-ga-ga couple often bragged about their intense connection and spending minimal time apart. In fact, the couple spent a ridiculous amount of time looking down their noses at their counterparts for not having as strong a union as they shared…maybe by “union” I mean wardrobe…
Former Real Housewives of New York stars Alex McCord andSimon van Kempen have been desperate to get back into the reality TV spotlight ever since getting fired. Silex, the couple that never, ever went anywhere apart have perhaps started drifting apart and the two have recently signed on to VH1′s Couples Therapy.
Couples Therapy has handled relationship dramas for desperate famewhores of all walks of reality TV, from Kasey Kahl and Vienna Girardi to Linda Hogan and that teenager who recently dumped her. I like to think of it as the home to ghosts of reality shows past! Well now Silex has joined the cast.
The Huffington Post reports, “For a couple of days last week, they were being trailed by a film crew, both in Manhattan and Brooklyn.”
