I smell a rat! Or at least, I smell the fragrance of a group of ladies who love to toss around that word! What would that scent be? Virginia Slims, vodka, and prison waiting rooms, perhaps? I know what it doesn’t smell like in 2016…Philadelphia or Natalies. That’s right, folks! Mob Wives is returning, and it’s getting back to basics.
The VH1 reality hit is scheduled to debut its sixth season in January, and the network is relying on the series’ OGs to bring the drama. Throughout the past seasons, we’ve seen Drita D’avanzo and Karen Gravano go from trying to kill one another (literally) to burying the hatchet (and the plates, and the chairs, and anything else that could be used as a weapon). Renee Graziano has battled personal demons–and all of her friends and co-stars–and demands the utmost loyalty to the point it causes her paranoia. Big Ang is always the fun-loving glue that keeps this group from imploding. Also, Carla Facciolo is returning as a full time cast member…we knew she couldn’t stay away for long!
Couples Therapy is back – and per the usual some our favorite reality stars from other shows are migrating to Dr. Jennin the hopes of salvaging their relationships! Apparently people need reality television cameras for that… (complains I who relishes in watching!). In the newly released super teaser VH1 teases all the major breakdowns, arguments, tears, and tantrums.
Season 6 promises to be “the most explosive ever” but is also endearing. Featuring reality television veterans such as Janice Dickinson (fresh from Celebrity Big Brother!) and Big Ang of Mob Wives fame. This season confronts serious issues such as gender identity, drug and alcohol abuse, and domestic violence. When the cast learns Carmen Carrera is transgender, predictably (and very unfortunately) not everyone is accepting.
VH1 has decided that we all need a little more Dr. Jenn Berman Mann in our lives. Clearly, VH1 is wrong, but I digress. Yesterday, the network announced a Couples Therapy with Dr. Jenn spin off, Family Therapy with Dr. Jenn.
Mark your calendars – season six of Couples Therapy premieres Wednesday, October 7th. In addition to the premiere date, VH1 has released a sneak peek of the new season, which features several reality TV stars. Because, of course.
Check out the Couples Therapy season 6 sneak peek trailer below, on which Big Ang gives Dr. Jenn the look of death, Joe admits he’s in love with two women, Janice breaks down in tears, Scott talks about his troubles, and more.
I am shocked to see Scott Stapp‘s name on the list so soon after his psychotic break and subsequent diagnosis of bipolar disorder. I wish nothing but the best for Scott and Jaclyn but I personally don’t think a reality show (at least not this show with this doctor) is a healthy environment for him right now.
As you all know Memorial Day is a time of remembrance and gratitude for those who lost their lives serving our country. It is also the day that VH1 upped the stakes by hosting not just a reality wedding, but a live one at that! That’s right, folks! Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris of Love & Hip Hop fame tied the know last night in a live two-hour special.
Nina Parker and Stevie J. are hosting the festivities for the live wedding extravaganza. The guest list runs the gamut from legitimate reality star powerhouses and music moguls (Kandi Burruss being both) to the cast of Mob Wives. Karen Gravano is mildly flirting with Big Tigger who is emceeing the cocktail hour before the ceremony. The venue is complete with a red carpet for Joseline Hernandez and Rasheeda Frost, a coiffed and made-up Yandy joins Nina in an oversize robe to share the exasperating dress debacle and wrong shoe size shenanigans that have been plaguing the bridesmaids for the past twenty-four hours. So much for Yandy getting some R&R the night before her big day!
“Viewers have been privy to every part of the couple’s relationship over the years as they became parents, dealt with Mendeecees‘s incarceration, the challenges of their subsequent separation, and eventually, his conditional release,” shared VH1. “Now, VH1 invites fans to be present for the happiest day of Mendeecees and Yandy‘s lives as they join together in holy matrimony.“
