Sada and Whitney
Sada is freaking out because her father is coming to the house for a session with her and Dr. Jenn. This is really putting a strain on her already volatile relationship with Whitney. These two try to communicate, they just seem to not hear what the other person is saying.
Dr. Jenn sits down with Sada and her father to discuss Sada’s history of growing up in a loud, aggressive family. Sada’s father says there is a history of violent behavior going back generations. Her father apologizes for hurting her. It was all very calm and emotionless. Sada and Whitney seem to end things on a good note. Continue reading
This episode of Couple’s Therapy is about repeating the same patterns. It’s a great topic, but I have no faith at all in Dr. Jenn’s ability to explore the topic with any degree of success. I must have been naïve to think that therapists who come on TV shows are any less attention seeking than the “patients.” Regardless, I just can’t quit this train wreck, despite the lateness of my recapping, here we go.
Jon and Liz. Part of the whole group therapy thing from my perspective is for people to get an idea of how they are perceived by others. You know, like with that great head shrinker of our time Dr. Phil asks the audience who thinks the person on the stage is full of shit. It’s supposed to make the person realize that the group consensus that change needs to be made. Yet every fucked up person on this show has tried several times to tell Jon that his cowering submissiveness is beyond emasculating and Liz’s constant cracking of the whip and humiliating him is wrong. Yet they seem to be just fine with the power exchange and so why the hell are they even there? Clearly, Jon wants to be the doormat and Liz wants to walk on him. If they are into that? Good for them. But quit trying to pretend like you are there to make changes that clearly you do not want to make. Jon has a history of submission and I suspect Liz has a history of humiliating her partners. Maybe it’s a match made in BDSM heaven. But let’s move on, for fucksake.
Dr. Jenn meets with Jon to explain that he needs to grow some balls. Jon starts right away defending Liz. Jon says Liz is really good with his kids. Didn’t the love profile last week indicate that neither of these two procreators were in the least bit “family oriented?” Oh wait, I remember. He just dismissed that whole thing as television for ratings. Dr. Jenn says that Liz doesn’t really care if she hurts Jon or not. Dr. Jenn suggests he stop being a wounded animal, take his power back and stand up for himself. Later. Liz seems to be realizing she is a bitch. Progress? Continue reading
It’s time for Couples Therapy again. It seems the weeks just fly by these days! I am ready to see what Kelsey and Latrice decide to do about Ghost. I hope they both toss him to the curb. Usually, in these situations, both are hoping the other will walk away. Don’t ask me how I know this.
Yes Kelsey, he has shown you who he really is! Kelsey bolts from therapy and Dr. Jenn goes after her. I was praying for someone with some sense to go in to comfort her, but sadly for Kelsey, Taylor goes to her instead. Dr. Jenn gives her stupid “crumbs of love” analogy again because that was so helpful the first time.
Kelsey wants to apologize to Latrice for interfering in her relationship even though she did not know Ghost was a slime bucket with a girlfriend. Latrice says she doesn’t know if she can trust Ghost. Really? What more do you need to know he is a lying sack of shit? Latrice goes back to the hotel. Kelsey says she is done with Ghost. But is she? Kelsey says she is not going to wait for him to choose. She is not going to share a bed with him tonight.
Taylor says the person she feels the most for and has the most concern for is Kelsey. Mostly because the TV cameras follow the drama, and she is all about the cameras. Continue reading
Tonight we begin the second half of the debacle known as Couples Therapy. The title is Get Real and I suppose it refers to both Ghost and Farrah. I doubt either will actually do it. But I am sure that Dr. Jenn will pretend to buy whatever they put up for sale. Tonight Farrah has an off camera session with Dr. Jenn and Ghost has a three-way session with Ghost Face Killer, Kelsey and Latrice.
We pick back up with Kelsey furious with Ghost. Ghost goes to do damage control. For once Kelsey does not cave. Sada comes out and talks with Kelsey. Sada gives WAY better advice than Dr. Jenn. She says that Ghost doesn’t get to pick. That Kelsey needs to walk away with some dignity. That she is better than this. Later, Dr. Mike’s counseling is basically keep your chin up.
The counselor chick has been tagged as “it.” This means she gets to chat with Farrah over breakfast about her lack of relationships with others in the house. They are all still eating takeout with plastic forks. I hate to agree with Taylor, and certainly don’t agree with the delivery but I would not want to live off of take out for two weeks either. Can’t they get some food in the house? Can anyone cook? Kelsey maybe? Perhaps the living conditions are a bit sub par despite the beautiful interior. Blaring heat and nothing but takeout from Applebees would be some pretty rough conditions. I can see pea green towels pushing me over the edge. Just not on day one after a full night out on the town. Anyway, the counselor is pushing Farrah to try to fit in. I don’t see that happening in the last week. Farrah says people are so rude.
John, Taylor, Sada and Jon are all outside talking about Farrah. Her story just does not add up. Taylor and John make all kinds of fun of Farrah in her talking heads. It’s rude and immature. They are grown adults with grown children and a lost little girl. They have absolutely no compassion for Farrah, which is partially understandable, but to take it to the next level and mock her clothing (Taylor) and her poor conversational skills (John) is pretty reprehensible, especially in the context of group therapy.

We are half way through therapy according to Dr. Jenn. Sounds like this is going to be a very short season. Dr. Jenn explains that Liz caught Jon masturbating and he is lying about it. This she claims is the perfect segue into today’s group. I can barely believe I typed that let alone that Dr, Jenn said it. The topic is sex.
Jon loves sex with Liz. When she isn’t in the mood he masturbates. Dr. Jenn let Liz have it for shaming him and emasculating him when she caught him masturbating. Liz seems pissed and Jon will likely pay for this later.
Dr. Jenn essentially asks Farrah if guys think she is an easy lay since she is a porn star? The exchange three sentences without Farrah fake crying. Continue reading
Sorry I am so behind, it’s been a very busy few days here at Tamara Tattles! I finally have a moment to watch Couples Therapy! I love this show despite knowing that it is all fake.
Sada and Whitney tell Taylor and John that they watched Farrah’s porno and it was all “backdoor.” They repeat this several times as if this revelation makes the whole thing more salacious. Actually, Taylor says if you are going to do one, do it while you are young. Whitney says that she and Sada have done things on TV of a sexual nature. No judgment for that. But they do want to give her a ration of shit for lying about it.
The group session is about trust and fidelity. Clearly, this is targeted at Ghost and Kelsey. Ghost is a huge player. Kelsey knows she can’t trust him. Ghost asks Dr. Jenn I he is being looked at as the bad guy. No, Ghost, just a guy who can’t keep his dick in his pants. Ghost is sweating and looking for the exit. Ghost says he doesn’t fall in love in four months. He says that Kelsey is one of his relationships. (AKA just another number) and he was surprised at her intense emotional involvement. But he said it all, Ghosty. Ghost clams up. Kelsey never says a word that we see. Continue reading
I love and hate how y’all are asking for some recaps that I had not gotten to this week. It’s great that you notice when something is missing! Now I have a lot of catching up to do on a beautiful Saturday. Let’s get right into Couples Therapy. We left off with Taylor (and John) throwing a tantrum over the horrific living conditions in the beautiful house out in the hills. In recent interviews, Taylor was still not owning her abysmal behavior. Let’s see how she reacts to being confronted by the group.
Taylor is on the phone with Dr. Jenn telling her that she can not live “like this.” To be clear, she is in million dollar home in LA which has been decorated like the set that it is to look fabulous. There are beautiful views, a pool, and when she is not present a peaceful, tranquil vibe conducive to self-reflection. However, Taylor’s private bathroom has PEA GREEN TOWELS! She asks Dr. Jenn if she has PEA GREEN TOWELS at her house? I bet she doesn’t no one would subject themselves to PEA GREEN TOWELS voluntarily. She wants to wake up in the morning with the same latte she can afford in her own home, dammit. Why doesn’t Dr. Jenn just treat her at her house?
Whitney is trying tell them they look like fools. Is that Whitney? Who is that? Whitney has dreads. I’ll come back and edit if I figure out it is someone else. Okay, I think it might have been an employee. Continue reading
How big are your lies, Farrah? Big! Real big. Like my butthole!
We all know by now that the “storylines” on this show are a steaming pile of horse shit. However, the reason it is still worth watching is that despite the lies coming out of their mouths, the people who gravitate to these sorts of shows can’t help but let their true colors show eventually. So time to fire up my DVR and watch! If you missed the first episode last week, you didn’t miss much and can easily catch up here.
Looks like Taylor is going to flip out tonight and Farrah is going to talk about her porn career that is not a porn career. Dr. Jenn says Farrah’s “boyfriend” has not arrived despite her attempts
to offer him another $15,000 to show up reach him. Meanwhile, Brian not showing up to play the role of Farrah’s boyfriend turns out to be the best thing that ever happened to Farrah because now she has the top fake storyline. Angling to take that position away from her is Farrah who chats with her in the kitchen.
This is one of the most hysterical scenes in the history of reality TV. On the one hand we have Farrah who has been coached to ask Taylor about her divorce. On the other hand we have Taylor who is keen to talk about finding her husband hanging and how she is technically a widow. They may as well be talking about Kroger being out of milk before a winter advisory. I mean, don’t you just hate when THAT happens. Neither one makes any eye contact with the other. Farrah has no response at all to the horrific declaration Taylor makes other than to compliment Taylor’s plastic surgeon. Then says, “Alright well, I’m tired” and walks away. I am not making this up.

I feel like crap but I just cannot wait another minute to watch Couples Therapy. This is just going to be toooo delicious. I also hate watching shows I blog without blogging. I like giving instant feedback. So forgive the many upcoming writing issues and short cuts. But I cannot WAIT to see this. But before we get started y’all need to go read the exclusives on Starcasm about Farrah’s boyfriend being a hoax. Nothing she says about this guy is true. He agreed to fake it and then backed out at the last minute.
Oh how the fake housewife has fallen. She has gotten to the point where she wants to exploit her ex-husband’s suicide on national TV for ill gotten gain. And all the while faking relationship problems with the new relationship victim in her life John Bluher. She has been tweeting for months about how perfect everything is with John, and already she is ready to throw him under the bus for a dollar. This poor fool had a wife and young children when she sunk her claws of evil into him. And now, she is ready to crucify him on reality TV. Will he be the next guy she drives to suicide? My money is on yes. One day John is going to realize what a horrible mistake he made. Continue reading
