Former "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.I'm not gonna lie, it may be interesting. The sad part is that I doubt it's helpful to the people going. For those who value marriage more than fame or the paycheck, this could be an epic fail.
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.
