"Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars," formerly known as "Marriage Boot Camp: Bridezillas," is a reality series on WE tv that is a spin-off of "Bridezillas."

America's most notorious brides have tied the knot and are back ... and so is the drama. Now that they've made it down the aisle and past "I do," five of WE tv's most memorable Bridezillas and their husbands head off to an extreme marriage boot camp as they try to make it "til death do us part" in a last ditch effort to save their unions in this series.

Viewers watched each Bridezilla claw and cry her way to the altar, but now her 'zilla habits are getting in the way of her fairytale happily-ever-after. Each episode will feature five couples from the past nine seasons of Bridezillas — Melissa & Chris, Porsha & Byron, Remi & Rob, Kirsten & Seth, and Danni & Marlon — all living under one roof for two intense weeks, as they endure the relationship rigors that come from trying to excise their devilish demons and live happily ever after ... .or not.

After the toasts are made [and the champagne thrown in the groom's face], the cake is cut [and mashed into the groom's face] and the honeymoon is taken [and the groom is left behind by accident, of course], reality sinks in and these Bridezillas have to adjust to their new lives as husband and wife. While planning the wedding might have seemed hard, these five couples have discovered that marriage is even more challenging. Teetering on the edge of divorce, enter coaches Jim Carroll and his wife Elizabeth, whose explosive and confrontational marriage boot camp has helped thousands of couples. During this intensive course, the husbands and wives are forced to go head-to-head with their mates, and fellow Bridezillas, as the boot camp directors put them through a progressive series of strategic exercises and drills designed to get to the root of what is destroying their marriage. Each episode puts the relationships to a test with drills escalating in intensity from eulogizing their spouse at life-like funerals to undergoing lie detector tests to unearth their deepest, darkest secrets.

On the premiere episode, after a seemingly relaxing dinner the first night, the couples are quickly jolted back to reality as they are called into a screening room where they are confronted with the confessional videos from their applications to boot camp, revealing the intimate details of the problems plaguing each of their marriages — infidelity, lying, intimacy and selfishness. Day Two of boot camp delivers even more shock and emotion when couples are taken to visit divorce attorneys and learn about the "what ifs" if they call it quits. At the end of boot camp, the Bridezilla couples are faced with the ultimate decision — remain married or throw in the towel. Will these Bridezillas change their ways or end up divorced? Will they leave in an "altered" state after living under one roof and going through this intense counseling?

Season 2

The second season of this addictive series follows the return of five iconic "Bridezillas" couples: Tasha & Jeff, Blanca & Julian, Sofia & Shaun, Mai-Lee & Tomas and Gloria & Mark — whose marriages are on the brink of destruction and now must endure this extreme marriage boot camp in a last attempt to live happily ever after ... or not.

The sophomore season chronicles five couples who live under the same roof for two solid weeks and are presented with grueling exercises and drills — both highly physical and emotional — designed to get at the root of what is destroying their marriage. The couples come to boot camp with some heavy baggage: Tasha & Jeff a couple from Eastvale, California, who has already filed papers to end their union; Blanca & Julian from Ontario, California, whose marriage has been torn apart because of finances; Sofia & Shaun from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who constantly get into screaming matches with each other; Mai-Lee & Tomas from Hialeah, Florida, who suffer from ongoing jealousy and trust issues; and Gloria & Mark from Columbus, Ohio, whose marriage is simply on autopilot.

In the premiere episode, everyone's dirty laundry is exposed as boot campers reveal the deepest, darkest secrets about their failing marriages. The first drill at boot camp begins quickly when couples must chose bricks labeled with the problems that plague their marriages. The boot campers are shocked to learn they must then tread water while holding these bricks weighing up to100 lbs., driving home the idea that they are literally drowning under the weight of their problems. Later an alcohol fueled fight sparks a mid-night standoff that immediately leaves the housemates divided.

At the end of boot camp, the couples are faced with the ultimate decision: remain married or throw in the towel. Will they change their ways or end up divorced?

Season 3

In the third season, "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars," some of TV's most famous reality stars are pushed to the limit, emotionally and physically, to see if their relationships are worth saving or determine if it's time to call it quits.

The five couples are forced to dig deep and put in the hard work necessary to save their relationships while checking their celebrity at the door. It's up to them to decide if love trumps all as they participate in some of the most jaw-dropping exercises and drills, specifically designed to figure out what is crippling their relationships.

Tough love tactics will peel back the layers of what makes these reality stars tic, as well as what is driving their marriages to the brink of disaster. Each episode delves deeper into the mind fields of what's destroying their relationships using exercises like: Divorce Court where a judge dismantles their marriages first hand causing things to get emotional and ugly as dark marital wounds and secrets are revealed in the court room. In the end, the couples will answer the ultimate questions: Is their marriage worth saving or are they better off apart?

An unimaginable truth emerges, but not before Boot Camp spirals into chaos. Directors Jim and Elizabeth Carroll, along with co-directors Ilsa Norman and David Bishop, are up against the most volatile and challenging Boot Camp yet, and as a result, will unleash a secret weapon on this outrageous group to help reign in their relationships. But when brutal truths emerge ... just who will be set free?

In the premiere episode, the drama begins immediately when infamous, hip-hop powder keg couple Benzino and fiancée Althea Heart arrive at the mansion fighting. "Marriage Boot Camp" is their last resort, but it may already be too late. Enter America's picture perfect sweethearts, Sean Lowe and wife Catherine Giudici. They come to work on their communication skills, but are instantly swept up into the turmoil. What the newlyweds discover about themselves is less than rosy. It's recommit or quit for Sundy Carter & ex-husband Cedric Carter. Cedric wants to put a ring on it, again, but Sundy has been stringing him along since their divorce 15 years ago. Bootylicious Sarah Oliver is tired of walking on the wild side and wants to settle down with boyfriend Jimmy "Inkman" Coney, who has a penchant for threesomes, and the truth remains murky for Mama June & Sugar Bear as they look to Marriage Boot Camp as their last chance to salvage their relationship wrecked by a scandal that has torn their family apart.

After the eager boot campers arrive at the compound, a booming voice interrupts the flow of champagne and conversations, redirecting the cast to an undiscovered room. The couples find themselves right in the middle of a bizarre and twisted version of "The Newlywed Game" hosted by none other than, Bob Eubanks.

Dr. V and Dr. Ish will guide the couples' journeys and push them to the point of no return with physically, mentally and emotionally draining exercises breaking the couples down in order to build them back up.

"Bachelor in Paradise" darlings Jade and Tanner, are trying to figure out how to maintain their relationship and build a foundation after meeting and getting married on TV. "Real Housewives of New Jersey's" Jim and Amber are fighting issues in the bedroom — Amber has lost her libido because of cancer treatments, and Jim gets frustrated. Additionally, Jim's hot temper, control issues and overprotective nature are crippling their marriage. For the past four years, Karen and Storm (of "Mob Wives" fame) have had a tumultuous relationship because her lack of a filter and his penchant for cheating. "R&B Divas: Atlanta" stars Keke and Michael check into the house looking to solve their biggest issue: lack of trust. However, her tendency to treat him like a doormat is what's really pushing them apart. Issues of money and anger come to a head for the "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta's" Margeaux and Merika as the couple reached their breaking point. Once the couples meet and the champagne begins to flow, they jump into their first exercise: court with Judge Lynn Toler. A mystery witness is revealed and Tanner brings Jade to tears less than 24 hours into day one.

In a house full of secrets and chaos, some of these stars will fight for the truth; but, will it set them free or destroy their last chance at happiness?

Season 9

This season we are introduced to a new group of troubled reality star couples: Ashley Hebert & JP Rosenbaum ("The Bachelorette"), Amy Duggar & Dillon King ("19 Kids and Counting"), PreMadonna & Buck Thomas ("Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta"), Gabi Victor & Victor Tarrats ("Bad Girls Club"), and Renee Graziano & Joey Gambino ("Mob Wives") seeking to mend their broken relationships with the help of experienced therapists, Dr. Ish Major and Dr. Venus Nicolino.

Returning for their second season, Dr. Ish and Dr. V have their work cut out for them as they push couples to the brink with physically, mentally and emotionally draining exercises in order to fix their broken relationships. In the end, these couples must make a tough choice: stay together or go their separate ways once and for all.

In the premiere episode the couples arrive with hefty baggage. Amy, cousin of the famed "19 Kids and Counting" Duggar family, and husband Dillon King shock the others when they enter marriage boot camp after only being married for seven months. Upon arrival, their lack of respect for each other is apparent. "The Bachelorette" darlings, Ashley and JP disagree on parenting approaches for their son, Ford. Ashley is also frustrated by JP's tunnel vision with work, while JP finds Ashley's inability to put him first reprehensible. Engaged since 2015, PreMadonna and Buck Thomas from "Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" aren't even close to locking-in a wedding date. Buck seems to have cold feet and insists they first get to the root of their problems, while PreMadonna believes the problem is there's no wedding date! "Bad Girls Club" star Gabi Victor and her baby daddy, Victor Tarrats, come to "Marriage Boot Camp" dogged with issues that stem from Gabi's unexpected pregnancy. Now they are trying to raise a toddler in a very tumultuous relationship. Plus, Gabi's best friend and "Bad Girls Club" costar, Dani hates Victor with a passion, so it's double trouble when she is invited to be a surprise guest in the house. Lastly, "Mob Wives" star Renee Graziano and boyfriend Joey Gambino have been secretly dating for two years, keeping their relationship hidden from Renee's dad, notorious mobster Anthony Graziano. Renee thinks Joey is ashamed of her but perhaps Joey is afraid of how her legendary dad will react. Additionally, Renee's past battles with an abusive ex continue to affect her relationship with Joey.

Boot Camp begins without delay when the couples are ambushed by a surprise press conference. Video footage highlighting the couples' most intimate secrets are played before the media plunging the celebrities into paparazzi chaos. In a house full of secrets and lies, some of these star couples will fight for the truth; but, will it set them free or destroy their last chance at happiness?
