VH1 Seeks Additional Relationship Counseling With A Second Season Of "VH1 Couples Therapy"

Taking A Seat On The Therapist Couch This Season Are Alex McCord & Simon van Kempen, Shayne & Nik Lamas-Richie, Todd "Too Short" Shaw & Monica Payne, Joel "JoJo" & Tashaunda "Tiny" Hailey, and Doug Hutchison & Courtney Stodden

Dr. Jenn Berman Will Serve as Therapist and Host for the Series

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 11, 2012 -- Relationships are hard enough, but imagine the pressure of having your hook ups, "bumps" on the relationship road and breakups as fodder for the tabloids. More and more, 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. Why is it so tough for these couples to stay together? Looking to shed light on the issue, VH1 will examine the complicated and often misunderstood world of high-profile relationships with "VH1 Couples Therapy." Alex McCord & Simon van Kempen, Shayne and Nik Lamas-Richie, Todd "Too Short" Shaw & Monica Payne, Joel "JoJo" & Tashaunda "Tiny" Hailey, and Doug Hutchison & Courtney Stodden will all take a seat on Dr. Jenn Berman's couch. "VH1 Couples Therapy" is set to premiere on Wednesday, October 3 at 10pm* with 8, one-hour episodes on VH1.

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. For some of these couples, living under constant scrutiny from the media and fans makes it increasingly hard for them to stay together and VH1 wants to see why they can't seem to go the distance. These five couples, at a crossroads in their relationships, will join together for 21 days 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, Sam Korkis and Rob Buchta. Jill Holmes, Tom Huffman and Jeff Olde serve as Executive Producers for VH1.
