A new season.. a rapper who "doesn't need therapy" but came "for" his girlfriend. Jon Gosslin with current girlfriend, though from previews it may be about Kate his ex and Kate Major, the ex girlfriend, Sara and ?? from The Real L Word and Farrah Abraham.. yikes I knew she had a boob job and made a sex tape, but her face is almost unrecognizable. Her boyfriend just didn't show up (but it seems he might come later) and another couple coming in the next episode.

So far everyone feels sad for Farrah, who cried more than she spoke in their first group, people wonder about the rapper being there for his girflfriend but not himself and the rappers girlfriend has already confessed her disapproval of any gay/lesbian couple.

Fun. I'm not a big fan of the therapist and so far this group is less engaging than last season's couples (well no one is as obnoxious as Joe Francis, so that is an improvement.

I'm going to bring the other comments here since this really isn't a Jon and Kate show.

Oh, how could I have forgotten.. besides Farrah's botox we have much more botox with a RH of I guess Beverly Hills.. the one whose husband committed suicide. Well she has a new man in her life, a fiancé (he was her attorney) and of course she is making him jump through hoops because of her past relationship problems and of course doing it all on TV is such a good idea.

She is well botoxed ..

The rapper's girlfriend has an extreme look, but strangely natural when compared to the two enhanced women.. I mean she has a sweet and pretty natural face..

And the shrink who bemoans how Farrah is one of the teens to grow up on tv, well now she is brining clips from Farrah's sex tape and details of her life.. oh.. ON TV.. I guess that is ok when you, the therapist are making money from the tv gig.

Rapper is Ghost Face Killer (I think, from Wu Tan Clan.. GF is Kelsey.

Lesbian couple is Whitney and Sara, Jon's gf is Liz.

RH is Taylor and the guy is John.

Did anyone notice with all of Farrah's crying, she never shed a tear and her makeup stayed perfect. And yes, she made a sex tape, but she doesn't do porn.....duh, what is a sex tape or maybe I am just too old to understand.
And Taylor bringing her assistant to unpack for her, I guess she wants everyone to know how well off she is that she has an assistant. Just why does she have one anyhow?

On the one hand, I admire this therapist's ability to show compassion and non judgment to some difficult to like people. It's not an easy thing.

On the other hand, I do wish they'd find some more likable struggling celebrity couples! I did like the other young couple from Teen Mom that was on last season, but jeez, the Girls-Gone-Wild guy? I find nothing redeeming about him.

Is this the show where the 'therapist' looks and acts like a shallow floozy? Ugh! I saw a couple of eps last year and was disgusted.

A shallow floozy? I don't think so. Dr. Bermann is a highly trained and well respected therapist, as well as are her associates. She's been invited to speak on well-respected tv shows, written best selling books, and has a call in radio show as well.

Kar, I agree.. I'm not fond of the therapist and last season at times she seemed pretty directive 9as in interfering) at times, but that may be her training.. but she certainly does manage to not go off on some really difficult people.

Last season I liked of course Caitlyn and her fiancé/boyfriend.. those two have been pretty amazing and really show that even coming from families of HIGH disfunction.. addiction by his dad, her mom, then his dad marrying her mom and things spiraling worse and worse, his dad in and out of prison, her mom lashing out over her very good decision to have a wonderful couple adopt her baby..

And the couple from Real World which was quite a disaster, though Real World has continued to get even more crazy since then.. but the guy who was in online gay porn and his girlfriend.. but they were one of the more sane couples last season.

Joe Francis, yep.. Girls Gone Wild and far worse.. I think since the season he's been charged with battering his fiancé, too.

Mame, I don't remember any flooziness or lack of depth from last season..

I would say that when therpists have radio shows and go on reality tv and lots of books.. well that can be good and lucrative and help more people but those wouldn't be the ones I'd choose for my own therapy.. I'm thinking also of Dr Drew.

Dr Bermann.. well I did kind of snort when she talked of Farrah as one of the young people basically exploited on tv.. and thought,k well, yes, and you are now adding to that exploitation and of course bringing more attention to Farrah, who just craves attention.. -

Anyway, the show can be interesting.

The preview of them wrecking a house.. seemed like an exercise best done after a bit more therapy but this isn't a long term thing..

And it is looking like Jon will be putting up more stuff that probably isn't so helpful for his kids to see or hear about.

I can't help but feel that these "therapist" type shows are particularly exploitive but hopefully some good comes from them.

I read the book about Joe Francis, and frankly, as a therapist, I would have stayed far away from that narcissistic/borderline type, personally. I'm surprised anyone would agree to try and treat him, and since then, he has accused Dr. Jenn of lying to him on the show to create drama (disproven by the tapes).

I also thought he was sentenced to jail on the previous case, not sure if he ever went...

I do find this show more exploitive than Celebrity Rehab frankly, mostly because of the couples she chooses...seems to be more for their crazy status, than any real desire to get better. JMO. In Rehab, it seemed there was more addressing of real (and not uncommon) issues, where this is just a lot of drama, and not a lot of healing.

I think a motivated person (Caitlyn and bf, for instance) could get something from this process, but I agree that this show is more for drama than was celebrity rehab and their issues on CR were more serious/real as well.

So agree about Joe.. don't touch him!! He is a toxic person.

Farrah may be turning into that but she is younger and I'm sure they hope to help her.. but judging from all the years we've seen her manipulating people, I don't hold out massive amounts of hope.

I read that Farrah's "boyfriend" didn't go because they hadn't even really been seeing each other and she wanted him to go so she could be on tv so he backed out at the last minute.

That thought crossed my mind, Mamie.. they do show him on a preview, but since the blotted out his name on the first show, he may not actually stay.

I wondered if Jon Gosselin's current gf really wanted to be on tv as well, especially since it sounds more about his past relationships.. probably blaming them for however he is acting these days.

And sounds like the rapper guy may have other things going along with the one he brought. What a group.


And the real housewife.. you'd think she'd be ready to not have her life so exposed on tv, but I'm guessing any publicity is considered good once you are on the reality train.

Evel Dick's ex-GF on "Couples Therapy" isn't really his ex-GF. She's an actress who is the GF of one of ED's friends. Her real BF is an ex-WWE/WCW wrestler name Nick Dinsmore.

I watched the show and it was funny. But I think all of these shows are hysterical with all the fake drama. And I have even wondered about Dr. Jenn.

But when I heard he was going to be on the show I really just wondered how he could be since he wasn't a couple and hadn't been one for a very long time. I thought it was odd.

He said on the show that he had been with his GF for 4 years and that they had broken up 10 months ago but he wanted to see if they were done or should get back together.

He also moved to Ireland so the whole thing was a little fishy. Now it makes sense, he knows how to work the system.

He keeps trying to get on Utopia, LMAO, he has less skills than Red.

Oh and supposedly he is going to say what the real reason was that the left BB13, was it?, I can't remember. The one where he left the show very mysteriously.
