Just in time to drum up some press for the new season of the Jerry Seinfeld produced, Tom Papa hosted TV show, The Marriage Ref here comes a negative bit of words from a contestant on the show from last season.
Howie Kohlenberg, an entrepreneur, appeared on The Marriage Ref with his wife Christine during the show’s first season run. Since then, Kohlenberg’s business failed and his wife left him to try to get into a Hollywood reality show and he blames Jerry Seinfeld.
The couple were apparently happily married but had money issues for their business, a spa in NYC. They did the show to drum up business and were promised to promote their business on the show and it didn’t happen. Kohlenberg also claims the show’s producers focused on simpler marital issues than the real issues. And when the show began taping, his wife got a swollen head and then came dreams of becoming an actress, moved to LA and tried to star in some reality shows.
“Now she’s getting this huge head. She wants to do Playboy. We almost got kicked off the show because she was putting racy photos on Facebook…I’m not saying our marriage was perfect, but it put it in a whole new direction. It was the nail in the coffin. [NY Post]
So there you have it, if you appear on a reality show and think you will become famous, the obvious and logical next step if to blame Jerry Seinfeld. I see it, this all makes sense.
