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.“
We’ve finally made it to the other side, y’all! Last night was the final installment of the Love & Hip reunion, and if you didn’t think it could get messier than it already was, you were sorely mistaken! Picking up where we left off last week, Nina Parker chides Rich Dollaz about not copping to what happened with Cisco’s ex Diamond Strawberry in the bathroom. As you recall from earlier in the season, Rich was intrigued by Diamond’s brand of crazy, but he promised Cisco he wouldn’t break bro code by going after his leftovers. Nina reminds Rich that the pair forgot to turn off their mics, and she then shares some previously un-aired audio from the encounter…which is pretty raunchy. Rich insists that nothing happened, and Diamond seems embarrassed. Diamond’s mother blames Cisco for making Diamond so vulnerable to be susceptible to Rich’s advances, although she does think her daughter made some bad decisions.
Diamond asserts that her fling with Rich wasn’t rooted in revenge. She was in a fragile state, and she had strong feelings for Rich. Her stalker ways are recapped, which, of course, feeds into Jhonni’s jealous rages. Cisco questions Rich’s intentions, and he can’t believe that his friend would act so shady. Rich does what Rich does, and Jhonni gets angry that Cisco refuses to go off on his friend. Can’t he punch Rich or something? Cisco gives a rousing speech about not becoming the next Stevie J and Benzino. If they’re going to scrap, it will be in private and when finished and they’ll party together like rock stars. He high fives Peter Gunz while representing the original L&HH as Rich laughs in agreement. Who are these people? When asked whether Jhonni posed a threat to her, Diamond quips that she didn’t even know who Jhonni was and assumed she was an extra. Jhonni retorts, “Your daughter is an extra,” which riles up Grandma Strawberry. It takes about fifteen men in suits to pull Jhonni from the stage. Diamond’s mother wishes they’d let her go so she could learn a lesson. Lady, have you watched this season? Jhonni would put a hurting on the elder Strawberry for sure!
