They had a preview of it during Top Chef last night. I was like, WTF! I can kind of understand useless wastes of space like any of the housewives and Jeff Lewis whoring themselves for a glimmer of fame, but there's something ten times sadder about mental health professionals doing it. Whose brilliant idea was this?
BRAVO hits a new low with "LA Shrinks"

Is Clayton gay?
|by Mother Cohen||reply 1||03/11/2013|
"I was like, WTF" is the kind of line that negates anything else you might say.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 2||03/11/2013|
was Top Chef a repeat or did I miss the reunion show?
|by Mother Cohen||reply 3||03/11/2013|
I watched about half of the first episode. Zzzz. Boring.
I suspect that the "clients" are actors. It's hard enough to even GET to couples counseling much less freaking discuss your sex life in front of a camera.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 4||03/11/2013|
I suspect a lot of shrinks are nut jobs themselves.
I'll go with narcissists for $500 please, Alex.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 5||03/11/2013|
Any legitimate shrink or a therapist would lose a licence appearing on that show. Those are probably "life coaches" or other hacks who do not need certification.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 6||03/11/2013|
if you click on the bio tab it says they are a psychologist, a "life consultant" and a "relationship therapist."

Andy is really scraping at the bottom of the barrel now.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 8||03/11/2013|
Hard to believe Bravo and A&E actually focused on "art" rather than "trash". I'm starting to wish we had just a handful of cable channels like back in the day. The advent of "digital channels" and media concentration just meant that more shit was spread around to more outlets. Quality was lost in the rush to quantity.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 9||03/11/2013|
R9 I agree. It seems like there was better stuff on when there were less channels. Now we just have more channels and more trash.
Andy turned Bravo into a fucking trash TV channel.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 10||03/11/2013|
Didn't Bravo used to be an arts channel?
|by Mother Cohen||reply 11||03/12/2013|
I wonder what Cooper and Cohen talk about when they're together... nothing but lowbrow trash?
|by Mother Cohen||reply 12||03/12/2013|
R12 Probably. After all, they both are trash.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 13||03/12/2013|
Yes, R11, Bravo was once an arts channel. Pride and Predjudice with Colin Firth was the regular fare. It's decended into tacky people TV hosted by Andy Cohen.

Only in Hollyweird would therapy patients feel the need to allow their private sessions to be aired on television for all the world to see.
This makes the Housewives look like Downton Abbey.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 16||03/12/2013|
I really like it! I can't stop laughing when I watch this show, because the shrinks and the patients are both nuts!
First off, it's gay friendly, so that's a huge plus.
Then there's the pure comedy factor. That batshit crazy road rage lady, and the "catty bitches" twins, and the fat-hating freak. All straight out of Datalounge lore.
Then there's the crazy shrinks ... one who rages during her period, or the other lady whose husband won't have sex with her, and then there's the "monogamish" gay guy who wants to marry his partner in front of his abusive dad.
This show is so fucked up on so many levels, and yet it amuses me so much.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 17||03/12/2013|
Yet you and most others here will watch it, won't you OP? ...along with the other trash television you gorge yourself on like a hog.
Enjoy your highbrow 'Top Chef',

Greg, the gay doc, reminds me of a calmer, more stable, Jeff Lewis.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 19||03/12/2013|
I think the gay doc has a bad hair piece.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 20||03/12/2013|
Is that a piece ?- I was going back & forth last night, examining it, just like with Jeff Lewis. Sometimes it's a definite yes, then I'll see it again, and think, oh no, it's real. Guess if you gotta wear one, much better to have people 'guessing', than the Travolta fiasco.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 21||03/12/2013|
I'm surprised no one has mentioned the "clitty litter"!
|by Mother Cohen||reply 22||03/13/2013|
embarrasing all around
|by Mother Cohen||reply 23||03/13/2013|
I liked the statement "No, you don't have narcissistic personality disorder - you're an asshole."
|by Mother Cohen||reply 24||03/13/2013|
I love this show!
|by Mother Cohen||reply 25||03/13/2013|
I agree with you OP. I was thinking the same thing when I saw the advertising for this new show.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 26||03/13/2013|
I don't like this show. The gay guy makes it a point to say he's not monogamous - does Bravo ever feature any monogamous gays? - and his partner is shrill and odd. Dr. Venus is just a bitch, and not even slightly interesting.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 27||03/14/2013|
Did anyone else think it odd that the sex therapist advised this rather vanilla couple to take up domination and submission?
|by Mother Cohen||reply 28||03/14/2013|
None of them wipe well
|by Mother Cohen||reply 29||03/14/2013|
I watched 3/4 of the first episode and I rather liked it. At least it had intelligent people talking about common problems. As opposed to dim, monied people making drama, which is what all the other reality shows seem to be about.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 30||03/14/2013|
I am kinda fascinated by the dominant passive couple. He look kinda fug until she said his dick was way to big, then the preview for the next ep he is in slave gear and has a rock hard bod.
They gay shrink - what is up with his neck? it looks like lizard skin.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 31||03/14/2013|
They are all actors like the rest of Bravo's CREW ON THEIR "SO CALLED" REALITY SHOWS!!
|by Mother Cohen||reply 32||03/14/2013|
That's fucked up feel good entertainment (= now I feel good / better about myself, because I don't have 'his' / 'her' / 'their' problems).
|by Mother Cohen||reply 33||03/14/2013|
The rich bitch one with 4 boys - I like her. She is pretty straight forward. The gay guy is creepy he has lizard skin. The other one is forgettable. The one who wants a baby. Shut up bitch go out and buy one.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 34||03/14/2013|
R25, I love it too!!!
|by Mother Cohen||reply 35||03/14/2013|
I want to see that guy's dick that is too big for his gf.
|by Mother Cohen||reply 36||03/14/2013|
More embarrassing than the Brad Goreski show?
|by Mother Cohen||reply 37||03/14/2013|
Either those people are not certified therapist or those are not real patients but actors.
