'Real Housewives' Stars

Our Marriage Is Crumbling

... And We Need HELP

EXCLUSIVE

0803_Alex-McCord-Simon-Van-Kempen-article-tmzFormer "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.

In addition to those two couples -- we're told R&B singer JoJo (From K-Ci & JoJo) will be appearing with his wife, as well as TheDirty.com blogger Nik Richie and his "Bachelor" star wife Shayne Lamas.

Rapper Too $hort will also be on the show with his 15-year on-again-off-again girlfriend Monica Payne.

As we reported, each couple will be getting "intense counseling" while on the show -- which began taping a few days ago.

Sounds like a hit.

They're only doing this to get some money since the other show fired them.

First think is to get off TV and concentrate on each other.

If your marriage is truly in trouble, why not seek out a professional in privacy rather than televise marital problems. I think it has more to do w/ the paycheck.

It may be a hit show, but stupid for the couples. The only way to fix it is without all the cameras around.

I watched a few episodes of this dumb Housewives show and I could not stand this couple. They are jerks, both of them and he is about the biggest douche out there. I always wondered how she could think she was so beautiful, lordy.
