The newest batch of celebrity relationship train wrecks made their debut last week as the second season of VH1′s Couples Therapy kicked off. As part of the premiere, fans were given the back story on all of the “celebrity” cast members, including numerous tabloid covers featuring the cast members. Oh wait, none of these cast members are big enough to be on the covers of tabloids. That’s OK though, VH1 just made some up for you. In perhaps the greatest waste of time in human history I have captured all of the fake tabloid covers used in the premiere episode, carefully edited them in Photoshop, and compiled them for you here!

Get yo’ tissues ready for almost 4 minutes of train wreck joy and a gallery of screen grabs featuring almost everybody, including the doc, crying.
