Plot Synopsis

Under the guidance of Dr. Jenn Berman, a nationally renowned relationship therapist, five celebrity couples participate in 21 days of group and individual therapy along with relationship exercises to see if they can rekindle the love they used to have for one another. As an authority on relationship issues, sex therapy, substance abuse, eating disorders, depression and anxiety, Dr. Jenn uses her range of experience and no-nonsense approach to help these troubled celebrity couples work through their darkest issues together. The five celebrity couples in Season 1 were: DMX & Tashera Simmons; Linda Hogan & Charlie Hill; Chris Nirschel & Angelina Pivarnick; Kasey Kahl & Vienna Girardi; Reichen Lehmkuhl & Rodiney Santiago. Season 2 couples were: Alex McCord & Simon van Kempen; Shayne & Nik Lamas-Richie; Todd 'Too Short' Shaw & Monica Payne; Joel 'JoJo' & Tashaunda 'Tiny' Haley; and Doug Hutchison & Courtney Stodden.

Season 4 premiered on Thursday, January 2, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on VH1, with eight one-hour episodes in this series' fourth season, featuring four-and-a-half couples when half of one couple was a no-show.

On Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on VH1, COUPLES THERAPY returned for its fifth season. The Season 5 couples who have booked time on Dr. Jenn's couch are: from THE BACHELOR Juan Pablo Galavis & Nikki Ferrell; adult film megastar Jenna Jameson & her boyfriend John Wood; BIG BROTHER alum Dick 'Evel Dick' Donato & girlfriend Stephanie Rogness-Fischer' Naughty By Nature's Anthony 'Treach' Criss & girlfriend Cicely Evans; and THE JERSEY SHORE's Deena Cortese & boyfriend Chris Buckner. Season 6 of COUPLES THERAPY premiered on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 from 10pm-Midnight ET/PT, as VH1 premiered back-to-back new episodes.

In the season opener (10pm), "The Journey Begins," four new celebrity couples check into an intensive couple's retreat to work on their rocky relationships. Then, in the night's second episode (11pm), "Enter The Drama," a new couple -- Joe Budden and Kaylin Garcia of LOVE & HIP HOP: NEW YORK -- arrives at the house for therapy.
