About Love Handles: Couples in Crisis
Lifetime Television premieres the all-new hour-long docu-series, “Love Handles: Couples in Crisis,” from executive producer SallyAnn Salsano (“Jersey Shore”) on Tuesday, May 31, at 10PM ET/PT. The eye-opening series features a dual transformation as overweight couples attempt to save their lives and relationships as they confront what lies at the core of their issues.
Each one-hour episode of “Love Handles: Couples in Crisis” follows the drama when two overweight couples battle the bulge and their relationship problems. Through 60 days of challenging workouts and relationship therapy, the couples will explore how they’ve reached the breaking point in their lives and how to get back on track. They’ve blamed each other, sabotaged each other and avoided the issues that threaten to end their love and even their lives. The ultimate question they must ask themselves is, “Can their relationship be fixed or is it too late?”
In an ultimate testimony to the program’s success, Salsano herself, succeeded in losing more than 100 pounds by changing her lifestyle and her relationship with her husband. “This show is very personal for me because I’ve experienced what these couples are going through emotionally and physically, so as a producer the chance to tell these stories was irresistible. I know what makes a person in this situation happy, I know what makes them mad, I know how helpless they feel and I know what makes them scream at each other until they just can’t scream any more because I’ve been there.”
“Love Handles: Couples in Crisis” is produced by 495 Productions, with Salsano and Joel Zimmer serving as executive producers. Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Kimberly Chessler of Lifetime Television also executive produce.
