Joe Francis attacked rumors head first in his latest sit down interview with Entertainment Tonight. In his Bel-Air home he faced off with special correspondent Cheryl Woodcock. Hitting on topics form his rumored bankruptcy to his headline making sex-tape nothing was off limits. The creator of the Girls Gone Wild brand touched on all allegations created by the media. Setting the record straight, Joe stressed that his ties with GGW since selling his company were strictly as a consultant and spokesperson. However, he did confirm that a sex-tape, illegally stolen from his girlfriend Abbey Wilson, was 100% true. Joe joked that he didn’t understand why it was such a “big deal” but encouraged viewers to do their own research and come to their own conclusions when forming an opinion about false headlines and media reports.

Joe Francis sat down with Sam Rubin inside the KTLA studio for a live interview. The creator of the Girls Gone Wild brand took the hot seat answering questions about his bad boy past as long time girlfriend Abbey Wilson came to his defense. In all seriousness, the TV segment was light hearted and showed the softer side of this once notorious Hollywood playboy. One of the funnier moments during the interview is when, for the first time, Joe opened up about meeting Abbey’s parents. Despite their preconceived notions he revealed they welcomed him with open arms. The next hot topic was about their recent appearance on “Couples Therapy’. After a short clip was played from the show Sam Rubin noted that Joe and Abbey were the most normal twosome of the cast. (We all agree with that).

Tensions are running high in the ‘Couples Therapy’ house, especially between Flava Flav and girlfriend Liz Trujillo. The episode, airing Wednesday on VH1, started as Liz threatened to leave the show in the middle of the night but was convinced to stay only after an intervention from the show’s night staff.
If things weren’t dramatic enough things took an emotional turn when Abbey opened up about her eating disorder past. Sitting in front of the entire group she courageously explored her past struggles with bulimia – clearly a difficult topic to discuss. The rest of the ‘Couples Therapy’ cast also confessed about sexual abuse, threats of violence, and abandonment. This was one of the most emotional moments of the season to date.

During episode 4 of “Couples Therapy” airing on VH1, the secret behind Dustin Zito’s gay porn past continued to shock the house. Dr. Jenn Berman confronted the ‘Real World’ cast member exposing his main motivation for participating in adult videos, the money. During a tear filled therapy session both Dustin and Heather alluded to a traumatic experience from his childhood. Will more revelations be revealed? We’re unsure how the rest of the season will play out considering we’ve learned Dustin and Heather were only on set in the ‘Couples Therapy’ house for a total of 3 days. Surprisingly, it appears producers have edited the footage to make it seem like Heather and Dustin were actually present for most of the time. Heather and Dustin were last minute additions, joining ‘Couples Therapy’ two weeks after production started because the original cast members scheduled to appear didn’t pass their mandated psychology test. Seems suspicious!
The cast then participated in a group therapy session where each couple was encouraged to express their opinions on each other. After Dr. Jenn instructed them to, “call each other out on their bullshit,” things turned tense between Flava Flav and Liz Trujillo as they verbally argued about their relationship. The feedback proved to be too intense and Liz threatened to leave the house before the shows conclusion.
Levity was brought back to the house when a psychic arrived to do reading for the celebrity couples. In an unexpected turn Flava Flav took control of the reading and confessed that he possessed the ability to float. Sound crazy? Wait till you see the surprising ending to this episode airing on VH1 every Wednesday 10/9c.

Just as before, Litibu was brought to the white sandy beaches of Joe’s favorite vacation spot where he dived off a boat and swam to shore. Joe said, “Litibu is an incredible animal. It’s a massive animal that would seem intimidating but it’s sweeter and more gentle than a puppy dog.” Once on land Litibu made a quick dash for the pool where he playfully jumped into the water. Amongst his many tricks the real highlight was when he gently kissed Melissa on the cheek. Check out more photos in the gallery below.
