    This season of Couples Therapy has been incredibly emotional, especially as we watched the journey that DMX and Tashera Simmons were on. The couple, who had been estranged and had some deep-seated issues revolving around X’s past with women and his abandonment issues with his mother, resolved to get divorced at the end of therapy, but it was one of the most peaceful resolutions of any couple on the show. Their mutual love for one another only seemed to grow throughout the therapy process, so we wanted to highlight some of our favorite scenes of theirs and ask you which one you loved the most. Take our poll, watch some highlighted clips below, or you can see their entire evolution in our playlist on the Couples Therapy show page.

    Miss You Much Samm Levine Jamie Walters Jeff Timmons
    We all love a good “where are they now” story, and VH1′s latest show promises that very thing. Miss You Much, a 30 minute show to debut in September on VH1, will reunite us fans with some of our favorite stars from back in the day, like 90210 star Jamie Walters, Saved By The Bell star Lark Voorhies, and Freaks And Geeks actor Samm Levine. Some of these actors have still been quietly working, and some have decided to leave the business altogether. But Miss You Much will show you exactly what they’ve been doing and host Catherine Reitman will dig deep to find out all their dirt. For more info about the show, take a look at the press release below.

    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.
