UPDATE OCTOBER 3,2012:
Couples Therapy premieres tonight on VH1
File this under the “total bs” category. Since Alex McCord was fired last September from The Real Housewives of New York, she, and especially husband Simon van Kempen, have been desperate to stay in the limelight. But how will they fake a bad marriage on television?
excerpt from TMZ:
Former “Real Housewives of New York” stars Alex McCord and Simon Van Kempen claim they’re on the verge of a nasty split — so they’ve decided to hash out their issues on a VH1 reality show for troubled couples.
Sources close to the production of “Couples Therapy” tell TMZ, Alex and Simon will be starring on the upcoming season of the show — alongside 17-year-old Courtney Stodden and her 52-year-old husband Doug Hutchison.
Give me a break! Alex has, in the past, claimed to be an actress, and Simon is a drama queen, no pun intended. Maybe they’ll convince someone.
