Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham: Headed to Marriage Boot Camp?

As Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham’s wedding date looms, a lot of fans — and haters — can’t help but wonder if Arie’s going to change his mind again. It’s not unprecedented, after all.

However, Arie and Lauren sat down with Dr. Ish and Dr. V from Marriage Boot Camp recently.

Those counselors, experts in relationships and the signs that they are doomed, are dishing on what they observed.

The controversial couple was spotted dining with Marriage Boot Camp counselors Dr. V and Dr. Ish at the Arizona Biltmore, a Hilton Hotels’ Waldorf Astoria resort.

(Disclaimer, the Arizona Biltmore is part of the “Biltmore Hotel” chain, and not affiliated with the Vanderbilt family or the actual Biltmore Estate)

People spoke to the counselors about Arie and Lauren’s relationship and what the two experts had observed about the two of them.

Dr. Ish said:

“When I see Arie and Lauren, I see a couple who’s both in love and happy to be together.”

He continued, pointing out that this was a special situation that bodes well for thier future.

“Which is great for them because sometimes both of those things don’t always happen at once.”

That makes sense. Sometimes people who are in love drive each other up the wall.

Dr. Ish continued his assessment, speaking about the nonverbal signals that he had detected between the two of them.

“They held hands and sat close to each other the entire time.”

So it doesn’t necessarily take an expert to decipher that they are affectionate.

“That body language says to me that they are literally into each other.​”

Dr. V’s commentary was a bit more succinct.

“They seemed genuinely happy.”

Arie is the sort of person who looks like he has the voice of a Game of Thrones villain but actually has the voice of a villain from a romantic comedy set at any American beach in 1997.

So we can’t say that it was a huge surprise to the Bachelor Nation that he didn’t win as huge of a fanbase as some previous stars have during his season.

But until the information first leaked, few suspected that Arie was going to ditch the winner just weeks after he’d proposed to her on camera so that he could go running back to his runner-up.

And no one in their wildest nightmares imaged that Arie would invite ABC’s cameras to witness his cruel breakup from Becca Kufrin.

But he and Lauren seem genuinely happy with each other.

Based upon the assessment by Arie’s ex, Bekah Martinez, it sounds like he weeded out the women who were more assertive.

He settled on Lauren in the end, who was infamous during the season for not having spoken very much in contrast to her fellow contestants.

So it seems safe to say that Arie prefers to take the lead in his relationships. Which … says a lot about him.

It’s really no surprise that Lauren is coming to live with Arie in Arizona instead of the two of them finding a new place to live.

Here’s a question: Does she even know anyone else in Scottsdale who isn’t Arie?

There was a time when Marriage Boot Camp was a show reserved for, you know, couples who were struggling romantically.

These days, it sometimes seems to be about reality couples who want more exposure.

Which could make it a perfect next stop for Arie and Lauren. The Bachelor Nation is huge, and surely at least some of people would tune in, if only to hate-watch.

But this sit-down may have just been a mutually beneficial photo-op and nothing more. Only time will tell.

Besides, at the moment, Arie and Lauren are busy planning their wedding — they don’t really have time to schedule a TV appearance.

Aside from their TV wedding, that is.

Amber Portwood Admits She Wasn’t Sober on Marriage Boot Camp!

If you watched Amber Portwood on Marriage Boot Camp Friday night, then you know that it really did not seem to be a good time for her.

She was weird, loud, aggressive … so how she usually is, only way worse.

She picked fights with anyone and everyone, no reason needed, and she just had this quality about her that was alarming and upsetting and just very not good.

And now we know why!

On Friday morning, presumably once she realized how much attention her behavior on the show would receive, she hopped on Twitter to send a special message to her followers.

“No matter what struggles I went through a year ago on MBC..I’m now happy, healthy and sober,” she wrote.

“The struggles & anger I went through are real & I’m happy to have ended such a horrific time in my life! Ready to live life clear headed and full of love.”

“The future is finally bright,” she added.

There’s quite a bit to unpack here, but the most notable thing is that she says she’s “now happy, healthy and sober,” implying that when she was filming the show, she wasn’t any of those things.

This is the first time she’s admitted to not sticking with her sobriety, because being sober is a very big deal for her.

She once said that in early seasons of Teen Mom, we literally never saw her when she wasn’t on some sort of substance — even when we saw her go to rehab.

Back in those days, she had a habit of taking all kinds of pills, primarily, and her drug problem was so bad that when she was in prison, she opted for a longer sentence instead of going to rehab.

She said she believed that was the only way she could truly overcome her addiction.

In the years after her release from prison, she made a big deal out of her sobriety, and for a while, it did seem like she was doing well.

Then there was a troubling Teen Mom episode when we saw her drinking with Matt Baier — at the time, she said it was OK for her to drink because she’d never been an alcoholic.

Unfortunately, that’s not quite how addiction works.

She continued to drink for a good long while with Matt, but she always got very upset whenever anyone suggested that it would be a good idea for her to stay away from all substances, not just the specific ones she preferred in the height of her addiction.

Even in the current season, she got furious when Matt suggested she wasn’t sober.

But for us viewers, it’s been clear for a while now that something hasn’t been quite right with her, and the episode of Marriage Boot Camp really drove that home.

And it looks like now we know what the issue is — or a big part of it anyway.

After making that tweet about her sobriety, someone asked her to clarify what she was talking about, and she explained that she “was drinking heavily on top of my bipolar and borderline medication.”

“Obviously something you shouldn’t do with medications like that,” she added. “However it happened and I went through hard times in order to be truly happy finally.”

It’s nice that she’s being honest about what caused her bizarre behavior on Marriage Boot Camp, but it’s also pretty terrifying.

We obviously don’t know what medications she’s taking, but mixing alcohol with medications can be extremely dangerous — she’s lucky that some embarrassing outbursts were all that happened.

Another thing though is her pregnancy. The timeline here is pretty tight, and deeply concerning.

Judging by the dates she’s given us, she likely got pregnant sometime in August — Marriage Boot Camp was filmed towards the end of June.

That means she had around a month to a month and a half to get off her meds and to get her drinking under control.

Oh, and one more issue: now that we’re seeing what Amber was like while filming this show, we know what she was like when Andrew Glennon became attracted to her.

Is there one happy thing about this whole situation? At all? Even just one tiny little thing?

Amber Portwood: FLIPS OUT on Marriage Boot Camp! Watch!

Amber Portwood has never been known as the most rational of the Teen Moms.

Sure, she might look downright level-headed compared to the likes of Jenelle Evans or Farrah Abraham or any of the losers that she's dated in recent years, but deep down, Amber is a violent nutjob.

And she reminded us of that fact in a big way recently.

You see, back when Amber was still engaged to Matt Baier, the couple appeared on We TV's Marriage Boot Camp.

We knew it didn't end well for them (Matt fled for Vegas before filming was finished, and Amber got pregnant by Andrew Glennon, a producer on the show.), but until today, we didn't know just how ugly things got.

In a preview clip released this morning, we see Amber absolutely lose it on rapper Jim Jones, who had the audacity to state that maybe "reality TV star" isn't the most promising career path.

“Especially when you look at the whole overall scheme of reality TV, it’s pretty much bullsh-t to make some money,” Jones said in a conversation that had nothing to do with Portwood.

This simple and 100 percent true statement was enough to make Amber fly off the handle:

"Get the f-ck out of her. Let me tell you something right now," Portwood interrupted.

"I've been on reality television for 10 f-cking years. I've been real since day one. That's not true. Not all reality television stars are like that."

She went to attack Jones' fiancee, Chrissy Lampkin, as well as pretty much the entire cast.

It's anyone's guess as to why Amber was even more temperamental than usual, but this may serve as confirmation of Brandi Glanville's claims.

The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star says that while Amber claimed to be sober during filming, she often far from it.

Amber Portwood Accuses Matt Baier of Abuse on Marriage Boot Camp!

In just a few short weeks, we will be receiving such a delightful, exciting gift …

And that gift is the premiere episode of the new season of Marriage Boot Camp!

This season, we're most excited to see Amber Portwood work through her issues with Matt Baier, because even though their relationship obviously didn't work out, there's still a lot we'd like to know about their breakup.

We're also dying to see if Andrew Glennon, her new boyfriend/baby daddy and a crew member for Marriage Boot Camp, makes any sort of cameo.

Plus, if you know Amber, then you know that she's completely incapable of not bringing the drama, right?

And thanks to this special little sneak peek of what has to be some of her most explosive scenes, we know that she really, really brought it.

The clip begins with sirens and flashing text that reads "Amber Alert," which is in kind of poor taste, considering what Amber Alerts actually are, but we get it.

Next, we see her hitting a punching bag with a baseball bat, then she yells "F-ck you, bitch!" at someone — it looks like her mother.

"Do I look f-cking high?!" she screams at someone else.

Later, Amber tells Brandi Glanville to "shut the f-ck up before I flip this f-cking table against your goddamn head," and while we don't know the context, it does seem to be a bit of an overreaction.

In another scene, this one with Matt, she tells him that he's a "piece of sh-t," to which he responds with an incredulous "really?"

"Why do you think I'm so angry?" she asks. "Because you hit me!"

Whoa.

So there's basically two things this could mean.

One, they did one of those therapeutic exercises that they do on the show, he accidentally hit her during it, and thanks to her clear anger issues during this time, it set her off.

Two, he was physically abusive to her during their relationship.

Unfortunately, there is some evidence to that second option — for example, last summer, right around the time she would have been filming this, she admitted in an Instagram rant that she'd been the victim of domestic violence.

"I've been through domestic violence," she said then. "I was the one on the other f-cking end with the domestic violence — it went both ways."

"However," she added, "I never opened my motherf-cking mouth about anybody ever f-cking hitting me! Anybody! Because that's what a real f-cking woman does!"

"That's what a real woman does. I can f-cking take that!"

Obviously that's not true, and it's really truly awful to state that "real women" don't seek help if they're being abused.

But Simon Saran, Farrah Abraham's sometimes boyfriend, claimed that this was true — he even specified that "Matt has punched her on several occasions."

At the very least, we know that Amber is prone to violent relationships, because we saw her beat Gary Shirley more than once in the early seasons of Teen Mom.

There were also rumors that Amber was abusive to Matt, complete with a photo of Matt's injuries that he claimed were from a separate incident altogether.

It's all very, very suspicious, isn't it?

Javi Marroquin Gets Lap Dance From Mystery Woman on Marriage Boot Camp

If you’ve ever seen the exercise in public humiliation and degradation known as Marriage Boot Camp, then you know that the show puts its troubled spouses through all manner of stunts and experiments in the name of therapy.

Obviously, the therapeutic benefits of these tasks are highly dubious, but there’s not question about their entertainment value!

This is a lesson that Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin seem to have learned the hard way during their time on the show.

Now, the Teen Mom 2 stars are already divorced, and thus, don’t have a marriage to save, but they went on Marriage Boot Camp in order to develop a more amicable co-parenting relationship.

And yes, that’s just a fancy way of saying they did it for money.

Anyway, the hosts and producers haven’t gone easy on Javi and Kailyn simpy becaause they’re obviously only there for the paycheck.

Far from it, in fact, as the folks behind the scenes seem to be reveling in putting Lowry and Marroquin through the wringer.

Thus far, we’ve seen Javi placed on “life support” so that Kailyn could experience what it would be like to stand next to her ex’s freaking deathbed.

We’ve seen Javi and Kail attack one another’s character in brutal fights that made us briefly forget they’re no longer married.

We even saw them both admit to infidelity (sort of) in some sort of high-stakes game of marital truth or dare.

If you’ve been enjoying the ongoing debasement of these famous exes, then last night’s episode of MBC certainly didn’t disappoint.

In an experiment based on the idea of a “hall pass” granting one temporary freedom from monogamy, the men were sent out on the town and encouraged to engage in bad behavior.

Just like in real therapy!

For Javi this meant receiving a lap dance from a random woman, and then giving her a lap dance in return, because apparently Javi is a little unclear on the concept of lap dances.

“The women would not be happy if they see what we’re doing tonight,” told the cameras.

“I feel bad because I do have feelings for Kail still, so I don’t know if I’m doing the right thing.”

Of course, he and Kailyn are not in a sexual relationship, so the experiment was kind of pointless, but on the bright side, it may have landed Javi in a world of sh-t, anyway!

Marroquin is currently dating Briana DeJesus, who’s not exactly known for her level-headed demeanor.

No doubt Javi explained that the show was shot several months before he started dating Briana–but something tells us he still spent last night on the couch.

Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin Fight HARD on Marriage Boot Camp!

When you heard the news that Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin would be featured in the upcoming season of Marriage Boot Camp, you may have been a little underwhelmed.

After all, we've known that things were over for them for well over a year now.

It was late last year when their divorced was finalized — it's not exactly a secret how things end up for them.

So why would the show bother to show us footage of a relationship that's been dead for so long, especially when their breakup drama has already been so well-documented on Teen Mom 2?

We'll be honest, at first it sounded like a pretty poor choice.

But now we're finally seeing some scenes between Kailyn and Javi …

And even though the downfall of their relationship is such old news, actually seeing everything go down is proving to be very, very interesting.

You can tell things are going to be good when, in their intro, Javi explains that "Right now we're currently not together, but I am here to see if maybe that changes."

Then Kailyn adds "I came here with Javi with no intentions of getting back together."

Hey, at least she's honest.

It does seem like she's kind of on the fence though, because in another clip she says that she hopes that Marriage Boot Camp "can help us figure out how to solve our issues, because when I envision myself being married, I don't think that I would have ever anticipated it being this troubled."

Then we cut to a clip of all the cast members together — Kailyn is asked if they're married, and she laughs and says that they're "on our way to being divorced!"

Javi explains that yes, they are married, but she stresses that the divorce "will be finalized, like, next week."

If you think this sounds almost too messy, then you're thinking right.

One of their biggest issues, according to Kailyn, is that Javi refuses to let go of her past mistakes.

For Javi though, one of their lowest points was when he was deployed and "I found out she was sleeping with someone else."

She tries to say that that's not what happened, because "I don't believe it's cheating if you're separated."

He hits back with "I believe it's cheating when you don't know you're separated."

This touches on something we've heard before, which is that she believed the marriage was over before he ever left for his deployment, but he thought they were still working on things.

In yet another clip, she tells him that her heart isn't in the marriage anymore, that she just wants to be able to co-parent together and go their separate ways.

The doctors on the show are convinced that she's lying, because if she wasn't at least a little interested in repairing the relationship, she wouldn't be there.

Because why else would she do the show? It's not like she's getting a nice paycheck and some more exposure or anything.

Javi tries to tell her that the kids deserve for them to give their marriage one last shot, but she argues that sometimes it's best for a couple to split and be happy instead of staying in a miserable marriage just for the children.

It's actually all very, very sad.

Will you be tuning in this season?!
