The Style Network Helps Shake the Break-Up Blues in the New Reality Series, 'Relationship Rehab,' Hosted by Author/Relationship Expert Wendy Diamond

Half-Hour Series Focusing on Real Life Break-Ups to Debut on Tuesday, January 3, 2006

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 30 -- The Style Network is coming to the rescue of the broken-hearted in "Relationship Rehab," an irreverent, adventurous and informative new half-hour reality series (ten episodes) slated to debut in January 2006, it was announced today by Lisa Berger, Senior Vice President, Programming Development, E! Networks. "Relationship Rehab" will premiere on Tuesday, January 3, 2006, at 9:00PM ET/PT.

"'Relationship Rehab' is about getting over it and getting on with it," said Berger. "The series will explore love in a fun and lighthearted way, and offer helpful insight on how to cope after a significant break-up."

Hosted by off-beat author and relationship guru Wendy Diamond, "Relationship Rehab" performs broken heart surgery on those who find themselves unable to rise up from the emotional ashes of their most recent love affair. When mourning becomes wallowing, Diamond is there to step in and help the lovesick "snap out of it!" Joined by the subject's two best friends, Diamond takes each lovesick soul through a series of challenges designed to help them achieve the five essential "Re's" of a successful relationship rebound: Release, Reclaim, Restore, Revamp and Re-Enter. Physical, emotional, serious and seriously funny, Relationship Rehab may not change someone's life, but it might just change the way they look at it.

Diamond, whose dog Lucky appears with her on the series, is the author of "What a Lucky Dog!: How to Understand Men Through Their Dogs." She is also the founder and editor of "Animal Fair" magazine. Diamond also recently wrapped the documentary, "In Search of Puppy Love," due to be released in February 2006. She has regularly appeared on television shows including "Good Morning America," "The View," "The Tony Danza Show" and "The Jane Pauley Show," to dispense her relationship advice.

"Relationship Rehab" is produced by Kingfish Productions, Inc. for E! Entertainment Television, Inc. Kingfish Production's Phil Berger and Natalie Kosson will serve as executive producers for the series with the show's creator and co-executive producer Brianne Leary.

Leary created "Relationship Rehab" following the emotional end of her own relationship. An actress, writer, host, journalist and producer, Leary's credits include CNN, where she covered the war in Afghanistan in 2002; "Good Day New York" (co-anchor); "Good Morning America" (correspondent); "Celebrity Wings" (host) for Discovery Networks; "Petsburg USA" (host) on Animal Planet; and "Best for Less" (host) on Fine Living Network. Leary is also co-creator of the internationally award-winning animated series, "Stickin' Around," and is currently writing her memoirs, "Growing Up Without a Net," for Algonquin.

As a team under Kingfish Productions, Phil Berger and Natalie Kosson executive produced "Crowned" and "Nightclub" for MTV. Berger spent a career in government and politics before segueing to independent film where he wrote, produced and directed "Maestro," an award-winning short film distributed by Warner Bros. Kosson's television credits include producing "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "Inside Edition," "American Journal," "Rolonda" and "Living it Up! With Ali and Jack."

Ann Lewis Roberts, Vice President, Programming Development, is the Style Network executive producer for the series.
