Throwback Thursday: Alex McCord’s Teen Spirit

Alex McCord Throwback Thursday

In honor of Throwback Thursday, the VH1 Blog will be showcasing some of the most retro, often embarrassing, always cute photos of our favorite VH1 stars. This week, Couples Therapy star Alex McCord contributed a shot from her high school cheerleading days, noting that she’s the same age as her co-star, Courtney Stodden, in this photo. Aside from that, we actually can’t get over how little Alex has aged — although we’re glad she didn’t take her perm into 2012.

Alex McCord Recaps Couples Therapy Episode 7: “I Am Sorry They Came Back”

Alex McCord Recaps Couples Therapy
This season on Couples Therapy, there’s a lot of drama in the house thanks to the incredibly diverse and occasionally divisive personalities that have been cast. One couple, reality veterans Simon van Kempen and Alex McCord, have offered to review and recap each episode of the season to tell us the truth about the way things really were and what they think of the therapy process. This week, Alex discusses going rogue on Dr. Jenn, and that therapy staple, her mother issues.

So this is the episode where I go rogue. One thing that is completely consistent about me since I opened up my life to reality TV in 2007, is that I call it as I see it. All eight of us in the house were completely, 100% done with the fake, phony, BS attitude of Courtney, and Doug’s head-in-the-sand denial of same, and Simon says his piece here. Read more…

Dr. Jenn Berman On Couples Therapy Episode 7: “I Didn’t Expect It To Explode Into Mean Behavior”

Dr. Jenn Berman Couples Therapy
Couples Therapy seeks to repair the relationships of couples who have spent significant time in the spotlight, and season two is going to bring the drama in ways that season one never dreamed. Dr. Jenn Berman will be speaking to us each week to help us make sense of the couples’ issues and shed light on why they need her help. This week, we get into how frustrated she was with the cast after they ganged up on Courtney and Doug and tore their room apart after they left. We also discussed the tension she has with Alex and Simon who were both upset and emotional this week.

I love that I get to ask you a lot more about how you’ve been feeling about the patients this season. It’s like you said at the beginning of the season they’ve been very responsive and they like to spar a little bit with you, and you’re showing your own emotions a lot more.

And you know what else was interesting too, Rodiney tweeted yesterday saying how shocked he was to see the dynamic of the couples in the house and how he felt so close to everyone in the house during his season, and how they helped each other and how sad he was that this group didn’t help each other.

VH1 Votes! Everyone’s Hitting The Polls Today, And So Should You

VH1 Voters Election Day
It’s every American’s civic duty to exercise their right to vote on election day, and it’s not something the stars of VH1 are taking lightly this year. Some of our talent has taken to Twitter for many weeks and months to bolster support for the candidates they prefer, and some remain silent on their politics but want to make their votes count. We asked all of them to send us pictures of them at the polls in order to reinforce the importance of election day, and to show off how cute they look with an “I Voted” sticker. (Were they not handing those out in NYC? I didn’t get one and I’m a little bummed.)

We’ll be updating the gallery below throughout the day, but check out which Basketball Wives, Couples Therapy stars and Single Ladies have proudly posed at the polls for us, and don’t forget to VOTE!

Who’s Still Beefin’ And Who’s Got Each Others’ Backs? Find Out In Our Basketball Wives L.A. Tweets Of The Night

Basketball Wives L.A. Tweets

This week in our collection of Basketball Wives L.A. tweets of the night, there’s still a lot of in-fighting amongst the ladies, and the tables seem to be turning on Laura now that she exposed her plan to get even with Jackie. But the ladies are cryptic with their words, and in some cases we can’t quite tell who’s on what side. Like when Draya calls an unnamed person “Faaaaaaaakkkkkeeee” and a “phony a— witch” or when Laura explains that some of the girls aren’t on her level…it leaves a little to the imagination, but we can probably draw some of our own conclusions. Check out some of their tweets and see if you can decipher who’s saying what about whom.
