In a press release regarding the new reality series, VH1 gave the following details about what Briana Dejesus, as well as the rest of the cast, was hoping to accomplish during their three-week therapy stay on the set of Family Therapy with Dr. Jenn.
“Each family is facing complex issues — from not successfully handling the spotlight to harmless sibling banter becoming tabloid fodder to messy divorce proceedings playing out on the national stage… Participants will participate in group and individual therapy along with relationship exercises out in the ‘real world’ to see if they can rebuild their relationships — or if it’s simply time for them to move on.”
Briana Dejesus will appear on the VH1 show along with several of her fellow celebrities and reality stars, including Flavor Flav‘s Tiffany “New York” Pollard and her mother, Sister Patterson, Lindsay Lohan’s divorced parents, Dina and Michael Lohan, reality stars Damon Dash and his brothers Jeremy and Bobby, and Viva La Bam‘s Bam Margera and his mom, April.
