What's the Story?
FAMOUSLY SINGLE is a reality series that follows therapist Dr. Darcy Sterling as she helps famous folks strip away their celebrity exterior and work on the reasons they remain single. Eight B-list celebs, including Jersey Shore's Pauly D, Love and Hip Hop's Somaya Reece, The Bachelorette winner Josh Murray, singer Aubrey O'Day, British TV personality Calum Best, model Jessica White, Beverly Hills housewife Brandi Glanville, and former NFL running back Willis McGahee, live together in a group house for two weeks. Here, they'll explore their deep issues with dating and finding lasting relationships. With the help of Dr. Darcy and coaches Laurel House and Robert Mack, they participate in a variety of dating experiments, group sessions, and one-on-one conversations to help improve their skills. Throughout it all, the celebs also find time to explore the romantic and sexual chemistry they have with each other.
Is It Any Good?
This silly series features celebs who haven't been able to wade through their own fame (or notoriety) to find and be in a committed relationship. They also work through issues such as recycling old partners, putting their careers ahead of personal relationships, and their fears that people only like them because of their fame.
While there may be tidbits of helpful information here and there, the entire show is hard to take seriously thanks to the drama created by the cast as they navigate the therapeutic process. The fighting and flirting among them adds to the entertainment factor. But if you want help honing your own relationship-building skills, look elsewhere.
