TV One’s New Relationship Series ‘Love Addiction’
EURWEB.com– TV One is introducing a brand new eight-episode docu-series, “Love Addiction,” that follows the experiences of therapists and relationship experts who help both men and women heal and rescue themselves from terrible relationships.
It works kind of like an intervention because they’ll be aided by the people who love them the most.
Men and women no matter how smart, beautiful or worldly, can find themselves in relationships that are demoralizing and soul shattering.
But the series doesn’t just pause at therapy sessions and expert advice. The show also documents some of these horrifying relationships on camera to give audiences a glimpse inside the pain.
“We all know friends or family members who almost serially seem to end up in bad relationships, or who fall under the toxic spell of a bad romance, and we wish we could help them realize how much better they deserve to be treated,” said TV One President and CEO Wonya Lucas. “This series is not only riveting and full of emotion, it also should provide some great advice for those with troubled relationships and even those who want to keep their relationships healthy.”
The show premieres on April 25 from 8-9pm Eastern and will re-air Wednesday night at 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. and midnight.
In the April 25 premiere episode, viewers meet 29-year-old Marcus Foy, whose mother Adrienne Nixon has always encouraged him to follow his heart. But once Marcus begins dating 51-year-old Suzi (a woman older than Adrienne), Adrienne is beside herself. She believes Suzi is too old for Marcus, is way past her prime, and can’t give her grandbabies; Adrienne is also concerned over Suzi’s continual pill-popping of painkillers. Marcus loves his mother, but wants her to butt out of his life. He’s happy. He wants to marry Suzi… and once her divorce is final he plans on making Suzi his wife. Suzi, a former Las Vegas showgirl, says she’s been living her life for everyone else… and now it’s her turn to be happy. She is currently separated from her husband and says the divorce will be final any day now. However Marcus lives with Suzi in a house that her husband, Tony still financially maintains. Between Suzi’s doctor visits, and dinner parties with friends, the couple constantly bickers. Adrienne and Marcus’ best friend, Jacob, believe if they don’t stage a love intervention before the couple marries, they will lose Marcus forever.
The show re-airs Wednesday nights at 9 PM, 11 PM and midnight (all times ET).
