    I think Danny is trying, but his wife is way off base. So what if he is a personal trainer for women? aw she's crazy.

    Amen to that...you hit it right on the head! This guy is waaaaay out of control - it's the roids and the EGO! He's convinced himself that he's still the "badboy" from the tabloids of 15 years ago. It's almost like he wears that reputation like a badge of honor or something. Sad.

    I never thought he was funny, either.

    If your hubby has screwed around on you I think it's normal to be uncomfortable about him working out with other women. It's a trust thing. He hasn’t earned any so he can’t have it.

    On the other hand I don't blame her for not going to Las Vegas with him. She has children already and shouldn't have to baby-sit her husband. If he's gonna keep messing up she needs to know that now and get going with whatever she's gonna do, or not do, about it. Sooner or later he will have to go places alone and fail or succeed on his own two feet like a man.

    I don't have Gretchen figured out but I unfortunately have a manic kinship with Danny.

    Where did they dig up this shrink?! I know it's a "reality" show so it's about 90% fake but come on. Does this guy even have a little clue what he is doing? What a lame-o! Where is Jeff from Intervention? Jeff wouldn't put up with this crap for one minute and wouldn't get upset all the time either. Ever hear of professionalism?

    If this whole thing isn't fake and this is REALLY what is going on then I think that a person like Danny would get off and feel really powerful by upsetting the shrink. When he realizes how easy it is he'll just be bored by the whole thing and quit going to see him at all.

    I gotta say, I really like Gretchen. She somehow comes out of most of this unscathed. Unfortunately that may in a weird way just make Danny feel worse about himself. As he said - he considers her a saint. Who can be married to a saint and not be keenly aware of their own failings? Danny seems to have low enough self image already, without thinking of himself as a train wreck married to a saint.

    What the shrink COULD be doing is to build up Danny's self image ina positive way. That is what he badly needs, is even crying out for in every action. He lives up or down to whatever image anyone has of him in the room at a given time.

    I'm not blaming his actions on anyone else. I am just noting his dynamic. For one thing, I think he is still trapped in childhood, only now he has (as an adult) picked up where his abusive dad left off, and has constantly mistreated himself. He's gotta go through that pain of realising maybe his dad didn't love him, before he will stop trying to test out if everyone in the ROOM really loves him.

    Lastly... this is for Danny. Hey John Lennon faced his demons and won, so can you.

    I was dreaming of the past
    And my heart was beating fast
    I began to lose control
    I began to lose control

    I didn't mean to hurt you
    I'm sorry that I made you cry
    Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
    I'm just a jealous guy

    I was feeling insecure
    You might not love me anymore
    I was shivering inside
    I was shivering inside

    I didn't mean to hurt you
    I'm sorry that I made you cry
    Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
    I'm just a jealous guy

    I didn't mean to hurt you
    I'm sorry that I made you cry
    Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
    I'm just a jealous guy

    I was trying to catch your eyes
    Thought that you was trying to hide
    I was swallowing my pain
    I was swallowing my pain

    I didn't mean to hurt you
    I'm sorry that I made you cry
    Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
    I'm just a jealous guy, watch out
    I'm just a jealous guy, look out babe
    I'm just a jealous guy

    watched the show last night and he is a run-away train just looking to jump the tracks and fall off the bridge into the river. he loves to mess with the shrinks and drive them crazy like "Good Will Hunting" what they won't show is she leaves him and wants a divorse and he slices his wrist. he needs the crap slapped out of him in a majorly serious way

    Okay, so let's see if I got this right... It's ok for him to stand behind a porn star while she does squats and do the squats with her while pressing up against her, but it's not ok for her to have someone step on her back when she has legitimate back pain. Yeah, I see- do as I say, not as I do. What a hypocritical piece of sh*t!

    Seems that I recall seeing this in a preview otherwise how could I be sitting here saying "ya huh, they will too show it"

    As an aside... I don't know why I like this show so much more than most of the other reality shows of the same kind (e.g. Being Bobby Brown). Perhaps it's because Danny knows what a problem child he really is and does want to change - - - he just doesn't have the life-skills to do it. He won't change until he feels he has no other option. As long as he can make all the bad choices in the world and Gretchen stays with him, he's having his cake and eating it too.

    He's got real problems and needs a real wakeup call. This psychotherapist or psychologist or psychiatrist (or whatever his title) on the show is lame. I don't see him doing much to help Danny but rather see him doing Danny a disservice by practically enabling him. If the guy helps Gretchen see that she too is an enabler and needs to leave, then maybe I'll soften up on him.

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

    Gretchen had it right - Danny is performing during most of the sessions. I don't know if the therapist can't tell or knows it and is not making an issue of it, waiting for Danny to let down his guard and open up. I read one thing online saying Danny is a narcissist and those are among the hardest to counsel, as Danny said at one point, he thinks things will turn out fine as they are.

    His saying that he just wanted his wife to THINK he changed (regarding not training the porn star) so she'd be happy... is a big red flag. If he was sincere he'd want to change for real, not just lie to her and keep her in the dark. What is his moral center? He doesn't see that it is wrong to lie and manipulate?

    I don't know if he is a narcissist or not. The addicts that I know are outwardly self-centered but have a really bad self-image. This has been described as being “a piece of crap that the world revolves around".

    He's got the wack-a-mole thing that many addicts have. Get one thing down and looking taken care of and something else pops up to take its sick little place. Constant turmoil for yourself and the ones that love you.

    A narcissist in the psychiatric sense, does have an empty core of self loathing, they over compensate by being grandiose and/or making it all about them. Vacillating between a big ego and being counter productive, workaholic or some other holic, and/or self hatred. Simultaneously insecure and full of themselves. Best and worst in the world.

    Sound like anybody we know?
