Last month we told you that Wu-Tang Clan rapper Ghostface Killah would be joining the cast of VH1′s Couples Therapy along with his girlfriend, Kelsey Nykole. We weren’t really sure what to expect from Ghost and Kelsey, but this season’s newly released trailer definitely offers a tiny sample of what we’re in for. And let’s just say, things are going to get pretty real this season.
It’s a little difficult to tell exactly what Ghost and Kelsey are arguing about in the trailer, but the discussion gets fairly heated and Ghost proceeds to go off.
“You not the only chick I do that with!” Ghost yells in the 30-second clip.
Kelsey eventually decides she’s over the conversation, yells, “F**k this,” and storms out of the session. Only God knows what they’re fighting about, but we’ll be able to find out January 2nd when the new season premieres. Hopefully they’re able to survive the reality TV curse and use the show as an opportunity to work on their relationship.
Check out the trailer below.
Wu-Tang Clan rapper Ghostface Killah will be the next hip hop artist that we get to witness work through his tumultuous relationship on national television. It has just been announced by VH1 that the Staten Island native will be appearing on season four of Couples Therapy along with his significant other, Kelsey Nykole.
There isn’t much currently being said about Ghostface’s relationship with Kelsey as of yet, but we’re sure that we will be well educated on their issues once the show airs in January. In case you’re unfamiliar with VH1 Couples Therapy, its a show that is moderated by Dr. Jenn Berman, where celebrity couples seek to resolve their extreme relationship issues. A brief excerpt from the season four press release reads:
“These four-and-a-half couples, at a crossroads in their relationships, will join together for over 2 weeks as they undergo intensive relationship therapy. Under the guidance of Dr. Jenn Berman, a nationally renowned relationship therapist, the couples will participate in group and individual therapy along with relationship exercises out in the ‘real world’ to see if they can rekindle the love they used to have for one another — or if it’s simply time for them to move on.”
Joining Ghostface and Kelsey will be Taylor Armstrong & John Bluher, Teen Mom‘s Farrah Abraham, The Real L Word‘s Whitney Mixter & Sada Bettencourt and Jon & Kate‘s Jon Gosselin & Liz Janetta.
Are you a Couples Therapy fan? Do you think you’ll tune in to see Ghostface?
Rarely will you find that a relationship or a marriage is able to tread a smooth and stable road. Instead, most relationships and marriages come with plenty of road bumps and even a few road stops. When a couple can’t come to an agreement on a certain problem, sometimes couples therapy is the only thing that can help them move past it. Here are 7 signs you need couples therapy and 7 ways this type of therapy will really help.
It has been a minute since I’ve jammed to a K-Ci & JoJo track, and that has to do with the men taking a break from music, but mostly it has a lot to do with the alcoholism issues both men have battled with over the past few years (and JoJo’s decision to be on Couples Therapy). This issue was highlighted in their past TV One reality show, K-Ci & JoJo Come Clean.
But it seems that things are on the up and up for the brothers as they are getting it together and have released a new single called “Knock It Off” for their very patient fans. The single is from their upcoming album, which has not been named yet, but is due out in the fall.
When I first realized that it was about “laying” a woman down I initially shuddered at the thought of them coming back with something so sexual, but all in all, after listening to the track a few times, I came to the conclusion that it’s not all THAT bad. “Knock It Off” has a good beat and a catchy chorus. However, I will say that K-Ci’s voice does sound a whole lot different than it used to. A little tired and raspy compared to the duo’s time serenading us with “All My Life.” Clearly time (and some drugs) have had done a doozy on their vocals. But nonetheless, I can hear this song being played out on old-school and R&B radio stations around the country soon enough. Check out the track for yourself below and let us know what you think!

First Look: Flavor Flav Sheds Tears And Chingy Talks Impregnating Another Woman On VH1′s Couple’s Therapy
On Wednesday night, the third season of “Couple’s Therapy” will debut on VH1, and according to resident therapist Dr. Jenn Berman this will be the most difficult group of estranged lovers to appear on the show yet. Looking at the cast lineup it’s not hard to see why. This go ’round Dr. Berman will be helping “Teen Mom” couple Caitlin Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, “Girls Gone Wild” creator Joe Francis and Abby Wilson, Flavor Flav and his lady Elizabeth Trujillo, Chingy and his actress girlfriend Temple Poteat, and “The Real World: Las Vegas” alums Dustin Zito & Heather Marter.
From the five minute super trailer, it doesn’t take long to see Flavor Flav is the most unstable creature on this season of “Couple’s Therapy,” and similarly to Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden’s appearance on season 2 of the show, the other cast members are questioning whether he should be there or not, calling his behavior disruptive to the overall purpose of them being there. But tears don’t lie, and from the emotional outpourings he and Elizabeth had, it’s clear to see they need some form of help that Dr. Berman can hopefully provide.
We also learn a little more about what Chingy’s been up to over the past few years — particularly impregnating a random woman while he and his girlfriend were on a break (in his mind) — and why five years in, Temple is demanding to know where their relationship is going. “Teen Mom” duo Caitlin and Tyler also shed more than a few tears trying to figure out if marriage is really in the future for the very young couple.
Check out the supertrailer for the new season in the video above. The show premieres Wednesday, June 12 at 10pm on VH1. Will you watch?
Where’d They Find Him? Chingy And Actress Girlfriend To Appear On Next Season Of VH1′s ‘Couples Therapy’
Talk about resurrecting somebody from the dead. I feel like that should be the slogan of reality TV because every single one of these shows is good for putting a D-list celebrity we haven’t thought about in ages on a national television show and making us somehow care about them again. Judging from the lineup of season 3 of VH1′s “Couples Therapy,” this show is no different.
The network behind all things ratchet just issued a press release detailing the pairs who will be put through the ringer by licensed psychotherapist Dr. Jenn Berman and there are some extremely interesting characters this time around:
“Girls Gone Wild” creator Joe Francis and Abby Wilson
Rapper and TV personality Flavor Flav and Elizabeth Trujillo
Rapper Chingy and actress Temple Poteat
“The Real World: Las Vegas” alums Dustin Zito & Heather Marter
“Teen Mom” couple Caitlin Lowell Tyler Baltierra
We would be surprised by Flava Flav if, one, he hadn’t been on at least three other VH1 reality shows, and two, that news didn’t leak a little while ago — oh and we didn’t know of the domestic disputes he and his lady have been going through lately. So that makes Chingy the surprise oddball in this group since we haven’t heard from the man since he was chilling at the “Holidae In” in 2003. Sorry, I lied, he is the spokesperson for Shpilka Vodka, as evidenced by this bootleg commercial on YouTube, but you know what I mean.
Because he’s been out of the limelight for so long, it’s hard to speculate what his issues with Temple might be, but I’m thinking maybe there’s a difference in maturity level. Temple, who’s had small parts in soap operas “Young and the Restless” and “Passions” is turning the big 4-0 this fall, while Chingy just turned 33 in March. I wouldn’t be surprised if much of their struggle has to do with a ticking biological clock and a rush to get down the aisle– but that’s just a wild guess.
It won’t be long before we get a definitive answer, season 3 of “Couple’s Therapy” returns Wednesday, June 12 at 10pm on VH1. Will you watch?
I’m still trying to take in the fact that Flava Flav still pulls women — multiple, ethnically diverse, somewhat youthful women — so news that the Public Enemy rapper is going to star on the next season of “Couple’s Therapy” is somewhat secondary to that first surprising point. But nvertheless, the 54-year-old and his fiancee Liz Trujillo are slated to appear on the next season of the VH1 relationship counseling show and according to reports from TMZ, they got on this show not a moment too soon.
Yesterday evening, the gossip site known for breaking news first, reported that Liz was rushed to the hospital after overdosing on pain killers. According to one of their sources:
“The OD was accidental and not a suicide attempt. We’re told she was ‘acting strange’ and it became apparent ‘she took too many pills.’
“The 39-year-old woman was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where she remains although we’re told she’ll be released soon.”
Now we’re not saying TMZ is losing their spark, but after making this report, the site came back with an update, saying:
“A rep for Flavor tells TMZ, Liz was NOT treated for an OD. The rep says Liz was briefly treated for exhaustion at the hospital after being kept awake all night doing “Couples Therapy” stuff … and producers are hyping it up for ratings.
“The rep adds, “The claim of an overdose, or any involvement of drugs, could not be further from the truth.”
Though it is possible TMZ rushed the gun, far too many celebs have used that “exhaustion” excuse when everyone knew good and well they were checking into something like a Betty Ford clinic. Unfortunately, So Hip-Hop had more disturbing news, recounting a violent situation that occurred between Flav, his alleged mistress, and Liz in October:
Flavor Flav’s fiance, Elizabeth Trujillo, tells RumorFix exclusively that the brutal attack she endured on October 17 stemmed from a fight over her fiancé cheating on her with another woman…
“Trujillo, who lives with the entertainer at his home in Las Vegas with their son Karma and her son Gibran, tells RumorFix exclusively that Flav beat her up so badly she can’t walk. She also alleges that the rapper tried to kill her 16-year-old son with a 20 inch butcher knife after Liz accused her fiancé of cheating. ‘He’s been cheating on me for months. I saw a text on his phone from a woman saying she ‘had a great time’ with him, and he was going to meet her in Vegas. [When I saw the text] I threw his phone and the screen cracked.’”
Flav was arrested and booked on two charges — felony assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor domestic violence — but as you can see the two apparently decided to “work things out.” Let’s just hope whatever the situation, “Couple’s Therapy” is doing more good than harm for Flavor Flav and his lady.

If you were a “Couple’s Therapy” feen like I was last season, you know that DMX has had his fair share of problems over the years. Though he seemed like some kind of villain when the show first started, by the time it ended I could understand why he acted so cruelly toward his wife. There were a few times when DMX and his woes literally had me balling.
Ever since then, I’ve wanted DMX to win and find happiness where he can get it.
Which is why this video of him remixing “Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer” at Clear Channel’s Power 105 studio really brought joy to my heart. Check it out below.
