Dr. Jenn Berman to Return as Therapist and Host for the Series

LOS ANGELES, CA - (May 29, 2014) - Everyone knows how much work even the best of relationships can be, but imagine the pressure of having your relationship scrutinized under a media spotlight where everything is blown out of proportion. In Hollywood, a discussion becomes a screaming match, showing up to a red carpet event alone equals getting a divorce and having lunch with someone who is not your spouse means you're having an affair. Living in the spotlight really amps up the pressure of being in a relationship and "VH1 Couples Therapy with Dr. Jenn" hopes to shed a little light on the complicated and often misunderstood world of high-profile relationships. The fifth season of "VH1 Couples Therapy with Dr. Jenn" premieres Wednesday, September 10 at 9pm ET/PT.

In season five of "VH1 Couples Therapy with Dr. Jenn," each of the couples are facing unique problems - some of the issues are due to the fact they haven't handled being in the spotlight with much success and it has eaten away at the foundations of their relationships. This season's couples who have booked time on the couch with Dr. Jenn Berman are: adult film megastar Jenna Jameson & boyfriend John Wood, Big Brother alum Dick "Evil Dick" Donato & girlfriend Stephanie Rogness-Fischer, Naughty By Nature's Anthony "Treach" Criss & girlfriend Cicely Evans, The Jersey Shore's Deena Cortese & boyfriend Chris Buckner, plus a fifth mystery couple who has a highly volatile relationship with the press.

From the producers of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew," "VH1 Couples Therapy with Dr. Jenn" features five couples at a crossroads in their relationships as they undergo three weeks of 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, author, speaker, and radio host, will be the relationship therapist for the couples. Dr. Jenn is the host of the popular call-in advice program "The Dr. Jenn Show" on Oprah 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 created the "No More Diets" application, which is currently available on iPhone & iPad.
