“Couples Therapy” season 4, episode 2: “Love Hurts” premieres tonight on VH1, where the first group therapy session features a discussion about dark moments in past relationships and Farrah has a revealing session.
In this week’s episode, the couples dive into their first group therapy session, where they each discuss the darkest moments in their past relationships and how that impacts them today. Taylor discusses the horrifying abuse she experienced with her ex-husband Russell, and how she found him hanging in the closet after he committed suicide. Kelsey discusses the abuse she experienced in a relationship and she reveals that she was a stripper when she was younger, which infuriates Ghost. Dr. Jenn has a revealing therapy session with Farrah, where she discusses her infamous “sex tape.” After all of the emotional therapy, Dr. Jenn sends the group out for a fun night on the town, where Taylor and Farrah butt heads. Later after the group returns, Taylor and John blow up complaining about their accommodations and threaten to leave.
Here’s VH1’s description of the show:
“Relationships are hard enough, but imagine the pressure of having your hook ups, “bumps” on the relationship road and breakups as fodder for the tabloids. More and more, it seems couples whose matters of the heart play out in the public eye are calling it quits and throwing in the towel on their relationships. Why is it so tough for these couples to stay together? Looking to shed light on the issue, VH1 will once again examine the complicated and often misunderstood world of high-profile relationships with season 4 of Couples Therapy.
This season is more explosive and dramatic than ever as Dr. Jenn and her staff explore new relationship territory with the series’ first married lesbian couple, and one couple’s relationship is so fragile it breaks just as therapy is getting underway.
This season’s couples include Taylor Armstrong from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and her partner John Bluher, Ghostface from The WuTang Clan and his partner Kelsey Byers, Jon Gosselin from Jon and Kate Plus 8 and his partner Liz Jannetta, Sada Bettencourt and Whitney Mixter from The Real L Word, and finally Farrah Abraham from MTVs 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom.”
“Couples Therapy” season 4, episode 2: “Love Hurts” airs Thurs. Jan. 9, 9:00 p.m. EST, on VH1. Check out a sneak peek of the upcoming episode below.
