'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.

Their marriage didn't have any real problems. They just don't want to find "real" jobs!

Usually when a gay man marries a woman there is bound to be a disconnect (snicker).

What a stellar cast of losers!

Courtney is 35- Alex is NOT a model, Simon is gay, Nic Ritchie needs a beating. All are pathetic non celebrities with no talent.
