Why Are Simon van Kempen And Alex McCord Doing Couples Therapy? Allow Them To Explain


A lot of people have wondered why a couple like Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen, who that seemingly have each others backs and went through a reality TV battlefield on The Real Housewives Of New York would appear on yet another show, especially one called Couples Therapy. And today, we have an answer. “It just got the point where we weren’t being nice to each other,” McCord explains during her appearance on Big Morning Buzz Live today. She, van Kempen, and the resident therapist of the series, Dr. Jenn Berman, were all on the morning to discuss the brand new series. “You need to be nice to your best friend.”

“It was a matter of marriage and divorce…we both want our children to grow up with two loving parents in the same house,” van Kempen added.

Berman elaborated, saying “These two came in very aggressive, very hostile toward each other, poking at each other in ways that they didn’t even realize they were doing,” but fortunately therapy has changed them. See how when the show debuts on Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Read more…

Lil’ Scrappy Arrested For Probation Violation, Tweets That He’s In Jail [UPDATED]

Lil Scrappy Arrested

The fact that Lil Scrappy has been on probation is no big secret to fans of Love And Hip Hip: Atlanta, for the most part, his fear of violating his probation (the result of a conviction for marijuana in 2008) is what kept him in line during the season. But as he tweeted earlier today, Scrappy has been arrested and locked up, and according to TMZ, it’s all because he violated his probation.

Though the details of what he did to warrant the arrest are unclear, we’ll bring you more information as it comes. Below is his fiancee, Erica Dixon‘s reaction to the events of the day.

[UPDATE]: TMZ posted that Scrappy was arrested yesterday for failing to check in with his probation officer at a scheduled appointment. They report:

Scrappy was locked up in Georgia yesterday for violating his probation stemming from a 2008 marijuana possession case.

But nearly 2 weeks before he was arrested, Scrappy filed documents with the DeKalb County Superior Court, begging the judge to recall the warrant for his arrest.

In the docs, Scrappy admits he failed to check in with his probation officer on August 9, 2012 … but says it was an honest mistake because he had been on non-reporting status for 1.5 years and didn’t know a check-in date had been scheduled.
