Good for him! He's probably not able to save a penny with that over the top lifestyle his wife's all about.

Out of everyone on the show, Dr. Paul is the most likeable and down to earth, imho.

Too funny, repect out privacy away from the camera. Hysterically funny after what she did to him in front of the cameras. Does he get custody of his own huevos now?

Aside from Sharon and Ozzie, are there any couples who survive reality shows? (i'm not counting kris jenner, since she's more of a pimp than a wife).
