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? Catch every episode of ‘Couples Therapy’ airing on VH1 every Wednesday at 10/9c.
