Dr. Jenn Berman is the star of the upcoming Couples Therapy, which premieres on Wednesday March 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, though if you watch TV enough, you’ll probably recognize her from appearances on Access Hollywood, Showbiz Tonight and of course, Basketball Wives L.A.
Dr. Jenn spoke to the New York Post recently to discuss her new show and to give some insight into what she thinks of certain celebrity couples, a topic that we’re always curious about. First, she addresses an issue that we’re sure plenty of people have considered, which is why celebs would want to air their marital issues out on television. “I have no doubt there were people who came in because they wanted the paycheck or they wanted exposure,” she tells the Post. “But there was a shift that happened very early on where people started drinking the KoolAid and saying, ‘There’s some real therapy taking place here. Let’s do this!’”
When asked what she thinks of a pair like Chris Brown and Rihanna, Dr. Jenn says “Whether they are actually back together, as the rumor mill has it, or they are “only” working together on a few songs, this collaboration is disturbing and dangerous. By choosing to spend time with him, working together, and sharing her album with him she sends a message to herself and fans that what he did was OK. She is playing with fire.” She also thinks Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are facing an “uphill battle.” As for couples she has more faith in, she loves Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi as well as Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani.
