VH1 PRESS: For some of these couples, living under constant scrutiny from the media and fans makes it increasingly hard for them to stay together and VH1 wants to see why they can’t seem to go the distance. These five couples, at a crossroads in their relationships, will join together for 21 days as they undergo intensive relationship therapy.
Under the guidance of Dr. Jenn Berman, a nationally renowned relationship therapist, the couples will participate in group and individual therapy along with relationship exercises out in the “real world” to see if they can rekindle the love they used to have for one another — or if it’s simply time for them to move on.
Dr. Jenn Berman, a well-known marriage and family therapist, columnist, author, speaker, radio host will be the relationship therapist for the couples. Dr. Jenn is the host of the popular call-in advice program “The Love and Sex Show with Dr. Jenn” on Cosmo Radio which is heard on Sirius XM nightly. She is the author of three bestselling books; SuperBaby: 12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Years, The A to Z Guide to Raising Happy Confident Kids and Rockin’ Babies. People come to see her in her private practice for a variety of reasons, such as: relationship issues, parenting, eating disorders, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, and sexual abuse. She also works with performers and entertainment professionals dealing with creativity and performance issues and does consulting with a number of related organizations including The Actors Fund and A Minor Consideration. Dr. Berman also recently created the “No More Diets” application, which is currently available on iPhone & iPad.
