Being a reality star is rough on relationships. We’ve seen the so-called “Reality Curse” strike time and time again. Nick & Jessica, Kris & Bruce, Travis & Shannna… The list goes on and on. Unlike ordinary couples, see, their problems are amplified by the media and put out there for the entire world to see, making the challenge of maintaining a happy, healthy relationship next to impossible. Lucky for them (and for us!) there’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.
On tonight’s premiere episode, we meet the reality stars coming to relationship experts Jim and Elizabeth Carroll for help: JWoww and Roger from The Jersey Shore, Gretchen Rossi and fiancé Slade Smiley from the Real Housewives of Orange Country, Braxton Family Values‘ Traci Braxton and her husband Kevin; and everyone’s favorite Bad Girl, Tanisha Thomas and her husband Clive. And in the biggest surprise, after 10 years of marriage, America’s first reality sweethearts, The Bachelorette’s own Trista and Ryan, walk through the Boot Camp mansion’s doors looking for help.
Dealing with celebrities whose walls are up, Jim and Elizabeth must take their exercises and drills to a whole new level in order to force the couples to face their problems head on. From spouse swap and shock therapy to being engulfed in flames and being forced to face their mortality, the results are explosive. The drama reaches new heights on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars: infidelity; betrayal; lying; insecurity; anger; and fear rock the mansion. The celebrity couples you know and love to watch, like you have never ever seen them before.
Reality TV brought them together. Real life may tear them apart. Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars premieres TONIGHT! at 9|8c.
