Newly-Engaged Linda Hogan Talks About The Healing Process Of Couples Therapy And Taking Offense At The Term “Cougar”

Linda Hogan Charley Hill Engaged Coupled Therapy
We caught up with Linda Hogan recently as the season of Couples Therapy was winding down to talk about the big reveal from the season finale: her engagement to Charley Hill. We wanted to know if she had any idea that Charley was planning to propose (nope!) and what’s in store for them now that the show, which she says was incredibly healing, is over.

Congratulations on your engagement!

Thank you!

Was your proposal a total surprise, or did you have some idea?

It was totally a surprise. They had that setup for the other couple that was there to get engaged, Mike and Deja, and they wanted us to go to the ring shop to look at rings. My inner thought was okay, we’re couples with troubles, but a lot of us will have happy endings, and everyone wants that happy ending, everyone wants to be the bride. I thought that the point of that exercise was to make everyone think twice about our relationship, because every exercise we did had a point to it. So we were looking at rings and Charley asked me “Do you see anything you like in here, babe?” and I was like “Hmmm. I haven’t even thought about it.” And, no offense, but my last marriage, I had an eight and a half carat pear-shaped diamond and nothing in the store compared, but then again, nothing compares with Charley. I’ve been there, done that, and my relationship with him is based on pure, simple, “I like you, you like me, we’re good.” But I was open-minded and I said “If I had to pick a ring, what would it be?” and I found one and really started looking at it, it was just a beautiful, classy setting, and I pointed to it without thinking too much…

Talking Couples Therapy Episode 8 With Dr. Jenn Berman: Look How Far We’ve Come

Dr. Jenn Berman has been counseling people and offering advice to people in need for some twenty years now, but on VH1′s Couples Therapy, this marks her first time working with a group of ten celebrities whose relationships are in desperate need of repair. We’ll be checking in with Dr. Jenn each week to chat about the progress of her patients on the show, and what she really thinks of their behavior. Dr. Jenn gives us a post-finale roundup of how everyone in the cast has been doing and how they viewed their time in therapy this week. Dr. Jenn sill consults with some of the cast and therefore still has to maintain a doctor-patient confidentiality, so you’ll see that there are a couple of questions she just can’t reveal the answers to. But overall, it’s safe to say she’s thrilled by everyone’s progress.

I’m interested to see how Reichen and Rodiney fared overall in therapy with you, theirs seemed to be one of the more quiet storylines.

The experience of being on the show allowed them to open up to each other in a way they never had before, and gave them both the ability to voice their needs in a really meaningful way that allowed them to get closer and they left in a very good place, probably closer than they’d ever been in terms of their understanding of each other and their level of respect for one another, which is really beautiful to see.

The Men Of Single Ladies Are Looking Pretty Good This Season

The men of Single Ladies need no real description, they all tend to fall under the umbrella of “hot.” To see what we mean, check out this clip featuring the men of season two, but be warned, you need to be good at multitasking since you’ll have to fan yourself while you watch. And as a bonus, check out a special clip of love interest/Dancing With The Stars star/essence of male beauty, William Levy as Antonio the stable boy. Not kidding, he really is a stable boy, and he may or may not be involved in an actual roll in the hay.

Kesha Nichols Says She And Tami Roman Are Cool Now

Kesha Tami Beef Basketball Wives

Last night’s episode of Basketball Wives was pretty intense once Tami laid in to Kesha about talking about her behind her back. But even though the fight gets pretty heated, Kesha has piped up to say that the women are over it now.

She tells Sister 2 Sister Magazine that after Tami suffered a heart attack back in March, their own personal drama became less important. “After Tami’s health scare,” Kesha says, “whatever drama was going on between us was out the window…I sent her an email telling her I hoped for a speedy recovery and was praying for her, and that’s the last I heard of it.” It’s not the last we’ll hear of it, since part two of their fight will play out next week, but it’s nice to hear some good Basketball Wives-related news once in a while!

Producer Harvey Weinstein Fears For His Life Around The Mob Wives

Notoriously hard-nosed producer Harvey Weinstein is famous for choosing great projects, one example being Mob Wives, which is produced by the Weinstein Company. And it sounds like Harvey has met his match when it comes to working with these ladies. When VH1 News reporter Janell Snowden spoke to him at the Met Gala last night, she asked if the mob wives scared him, to which he responded “Absolutely, are you kidding? I fear for my life.”

Royce Reed Recaps Basketball Wives Episode 12: A DAMN SHAME

It’s time once again to welcome Royce Reed back to the blog so she can tell it like it is. For the past two seasons of Basketball Wives, Royce has recapped every episode, all the highs and lows, and given us her completely honest and unfiltered opinion. We’re thrilled to have her back for season four.


This episode was pretty intense…So lets just get right into it.

The relationship between my dad and I has been damaged for years. It started going downhill when I was in high school and I decided I no longer wanted to run track. Yes, I was good, but I didn’t love it. I come from a family FULL of athletes, most of whom ran track and still hold a few records in Florida for relays and single races. My love stopped when it felt more like a job than something I loved to do because it was forced on me. Since the day I decided I wanted to continue dancing and cheering competitively I haven’t felt “good enough” for my dad. Read more…
