LOS ANGELES, CA – (May 22, 2013) – Relationships are hard enough, but imagine your relationship being the fodder for the tabloids. Under the intense scrutiny of the public eye, and all the pressure that comes with fame, it seems couples whose matters of the heart play out in the public eye are calling it quits and throwing in the towel on their relationships. VH1 examines the complicated and often misunderstood world of high-profile relationships with “VH1 Couples Therapy,” premiering Wednesday, June 12th at 10 PM ET/PT.
Sitting down with Dr. Berman this season: “Girls Gone Wild” creator Joe Francis & Abby Wilson, rapper and TV personality Flavor Flav & Elizabeth Trujillo, rapper Chingy & actress Temple Poteat, “The Real World: Las Vegas” alums Dustin Zito & Heather Marter and “Teen Mom” couples Catelynn Lowell & Tyler Baltierra will all take a seat on Dr. Jenn Berman’s couch.
From the producers of “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew,” “VH1 Couples Therapy” is the first reality show to examine firsthand the real life experiences of a group of buzzed-about couples. These five couples, at a crossroads in their relationships, will join together for over 2 weeks as they undergo intensive relationship therapy. Under the guidance of Dr. Jenn Berman, a nationally renowned relationship therapist, the couples will participate in group and individual therapy along with relationship exercises out in the “real world” to see if they can rekindle the love they used to have for one another — or if it’s simply time for them to move on.
Dr. Jenn Berman, a well-known marriage and family therapist, columnist, author, speaker, radio host will be the relationship therapist for the couples. Dr. Jenn is the host of the popular call-in advice program “The Love and Sex Show with Dr. Jenn” on Cosmo Radio which is heard on Sirius XM nightly. She is the author of three bestselling books: SuperBaby: 12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Years, The A to Z Guide to Raising Happy Confident Kids and Rockin’ Babies. People come to see her in her private practice for a variety of reasons, such as: relationship issues, parenting, eating disorders, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, and sexual abuse. She also works with performers and entertainment professionals dealing with creativity and performance issues and does consulting with a number of related organizations including The Actors Fund and A Minor Consideration. Dr. Berman also recently created the “No More Diets” application, which is currently available on iPhone & iPad.
“VH1 Couples Therapy” is produced by Irwin Entertainment. Executive producing for Irwin Entertainment are John Irwin, Damian Sullivan, Joel Rodgers and Rob Buchta. Jill Holmes, Tom Huffman and Jeff Olde serve as Executive Producers for VH1.
