Couples Therapy1Couple Therapy
In the fall of 2012, Richie and his wife were featured on Season 2 of VH1 reality show Couples Therapy along with several other couples.
Nik Richie and Shayne Lamas – Lamas is the daughter of actor Lorenzo Lamas and the winner of the twelfth season of The Bachelor, and Richie is the creator of the tabloid website TheDirty. They married in Las Vegas eight hours after they met, and each had no idea who the other was until tabloids reported on their wedding in the morning. Lamas was appalled to discover that Richie was the man behind a website she considers offensive to women, which caused tension in their marriage. While the first year of their relationship was "passionate, spontaneous, and adventurous", it worsened when Lamas became pregnant with their daughter a little more than a year after they wed, and issues at the heart of current conflict include Richie's website, Lamas' spending habits and the challenges of parenthood.
