No relationship is perfect, and this week on Couples Therapy, each couple reveals their darkest moment, the point where they hit rock bottom and didn’t think they’d stay together. In our sneak peek, find out what’s tearing Courtney and Doug apart (hint: it’s not the age difference) and which couple was on the brink of divorce.
Couples Therapy airs Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Big changes are afoot in the world of Mob Wives. The show’s creator, Jennifer Graziano, recently spoke to The New York Post and confirmed that the New York cast will gain two new women for season three, though Jennifer is not naming names just yet. She says that one of the newbies is an old friend she’s known since she was a teenager, and the other “brings something to the show that I think is needed — someone who is really into her career.”
Jennifer also reveals that she’s working on two more Mob Wives franchises, one in Philadelphia, one in Miami. “Both are cast. It’s now up to VH1 to decide which one to do,” she says. Season three of Mob Wives has already begun filming, but will not premiere until 2013. All of the original cast are set to return.
Each week on Rehab With Dr. Drew, we’ll be talking to some of the staff on hand at the Pasadena Recovery Center to find out everything that happened in front of and behind the camera with this season’s group of patients. This week we spoke to Dr. John Sharp, who appeared last season on Celebrity Rehab and was this season’s Associate Medical Director, Psychiatrist on Call, and Director of Aftercare for the program. Dr. Sharp worked closely with the patients to make sure they remained stable and successful throughout the recovery process. Read more…
Each week after Rehab With Dr. Drew, we’ll be talking to some of the staff on hand at the Pasadena Recovery Center to find out everything that went down in front of and behind the camera with this season’s group of patients. This week we spoke to our friend Jennifer Gimenez, the resident technician at the facility who had battled demons on her own, and she offered up her insight and some behind-the-scenes details for this episode that dealt with Jasmen’s miscarriage, now that her would-be due date approached. Jenn had told me what happens in this episode prior to my watching it because she knew that I’m currently also four months pregnant, and within the episode she also revealed her own miscarriage of a child at four and a half months. Overall, it was a tough thing to watch for anyone but Jasmen’s story resonated strongly for both of us.
You warned me about this episode and just how emotional and hard it would be, and I admit I watched it once and I don’t think I’ll watch it again, there were some things Jasmen revealed that were incredibly hard to hear. How did you feel re-living it as you watched?
Watching the show back, I was pretty much speechless. I was like, “What am I really feeling right now?” Because, you know, I do reveal that I myself have gone through what Jasmen has gone through and I lost a baby at four and a half months pregnant and it was a very traumatizing experience. I think there’s a lot of times where you ask why..why did that happen? Especially in recovery, they say that only through your experiences can you help other people, and experiencing this with Jasmen was as much a healing process for me and it made me realize that this is why I went through this and was able to get through this, in order to help somebody else. I had a lot of closure, to be honest with you. On a selfish level and on a healing level, really. This was one of the most profound reasons why Jasmen drinks and that shame and hurt and remorse she has and that secret she has, you’re only as sick as your secrets and here she is revealing hers, and there’s so much closure. She’s not fighting with Erica because she doesn’t like Erica, they don’t really know each other not to like each other, she’s just acting out. To watch this, I was mourning watching this, but I was also happy that we had each other to go through this together. Read more…
Is Courtney Stodden just putting on a show? We, along with her Couples Therapy cast mates, have been asking ourselves the same question. We’ll have to wait and see how the season will play out, but in the meantime we can watch some of her most infamous YouTube performances. These videos, in addition to her controversial marriage to Doug Hutchison, catapulted her from a not-so-average high school sophomore into a full-blown tabloid star.
The first video is briefly featured on the Couples Therapy premiere and we felt that it would greatly benefit every one of our viewers to see the full video. It is titled “Hello Courtney,” an homage to, or in her words a “spoof” of Hello Kitty and shows off Courtney’s acting chops. Remember she and Doug met because she was interested in an acting course he was teaching at the time. This video was published in May 2012, a full year after she and Doug were married. Read more…

By now you’ve almost certainly heard that an excerpt (can you call it an excerpt?) of the sex tape starring Hulk Hogan has been released to Gawker. And now TMZ reports that Hogan and his team of lawyers are readying themselves (to rummmble) for a lawsuit if the site doesn’t pull the video of the Hulkster having sex (reportedly with Heather Clem, wife of his BFF Bubba The Love Sponge) down. The clip is still up as of now, but trust us when we tell you that you probably don’t want to watch, because this man makes love as tenderly as, uh, a wrestler who constantly checks his phone and talks about how full and indigestion-y he is from eating too much. Seriously.
So maybe all this turbulence in her ex’s life created some havoc in Linda Hogan‘s life today too, because we also just found out that she had a rough one and was arrested for DUI last night in Malibu. Hogan, whose blood alcohol was just over the legal limit of .08, coming in at .084, was arrested and later released on $5,000 bail. Linda’s rep commented saying “Linda sincerely regrets the arrest.” It’s certainly a rough day for the pair.

Everyone is still on edge thanks to their detox on Rehab With Dr. Drew, and that means that tension is still high. In this sneak peek from this Sunday night’s show, Ashleigh and Eric continue their argument that was held over from their hike last time, and Jasmen points out that now that everyone is detoxing, they’re showing their “true f—ing colors.” This eventually leads to some intense revelations in one of the most shocking, dramatic episodes of the season.
Rehab With Dr. Drew airs Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
