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.

The drama in the house continued. After tempers flared between Chingy and girlfriend Temple things got serious during ’16 and Pregnant’ star Tyler Baltierra’s one-on-one session. It was revealed that Tyler was developing cold feet towards his fiancé. With doubts about their future at a boiling point will this couple make it till the season finale?

THE CALL OUT: COUPLES THERAPY EPISODE 4

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.

During the group discussion Joe and Abbey bravely opened up about their battles and the emotional toll in took on their relationship.

In an effort to take trust to a new level Dr. Jenn Berman took the celebrity couples to a high intensity ropes course. The first obstacle challenged Joe and Abbey to scale a giant rock wall.  While being tethered together, they worked through their fears and used trust as the elevating factor to their success.

While things were looking up for Joe and Abbey the relationship between Flava Flav and Liz seemed to be headed for disaster.
