UPDATE (2:43 PM PST): Dr. Jenn Berman has just issued the following statement exclusively to TheTVPage.com: “Neither I nor my producers would ever allow anyone on Couples Therapy that we did not believe was a legitimate couple. This relationship was presented to me as an authentic short term relationship. I have worked with other short term relationships on the show and done very meaningful work with those couples.”
Another Farrah Abraham scam goes down in flames!
Florida DJ Brian Dawe has finally admitted for the record that the Back Door Teen Mom recruited him to be her boyfriend so she could appear on the VH-1 reality series COUPLES THERAPY.
Brian — who had previously appeared on the network’s MASTERS OF THE MIX — says producers of the show were in on the rouse and offered him $15,000 to keep quiet, but he refused.
“I got myself in this situation because I was only thinking about the profit I would be making from doing this show. That was wrong,” he tells Starcasm.com. “In the back of my head I realized I could not participate in a TV show that would further exploit Farrah, and where I would have to lie to be involved.”
“I believe the producers are claiming they hired an expert to try to justify the story line,” he said. “The producers knew this relationship was fake. I notified them that it was not real before taping began. I really hope that the producers didn’t tell Dr. Jenn Berman they had this knowledge, and if they did inform her then there are some serious ethical issues with that situation.”
This isn’t Farrah’s first attempt to pull a fast one. Last year she tried to recruit a different fake boyfriend to appear on the same program.
Oh, and let’s not forget the “stolen” sex tape she made with p0rn star James Deen (who also outed her for lying)!
These newest revelations couldn’t possibly do any more damage to Farrah’s public image, but they do give a big black eye to the reputations of both Dr. Jenn (who was likely kept in the dark) and the show.
I reached out to both for comment and will update if/when I hear back.
