During the quarantine everyone has been trying to sources of entertainment, OWN’s Love Goals recently gave us this experience in a virtual screening and roundtable event. In the show licensed professional counselor, Spirit has two weeks to assist couples in difficulties they’ve experienced in their relationship. While on the show, the celebrity couples live under one roof which can definitely lead to quite an interesting time. The couples include some of our favorites from Dee Dee “Spinderella” Roper and Quenton “Q” Coleman, Coolio, Dwayne “Money” Bowe and Theresa Bowe, Althea Heart and Benzino, Sunday Carter and Breyon Williams, Coolio and Mimi Ivey.
In the screening, couple’s DNA was tested to gauge their compatibility – while some were thrilled, others were oddly surprised. Also, Sunday Carter was able to meet her spouse’s three brothers.
In the roundtable the couples reflected on quarantine caused by the coronavirus has impact their relationships. Dwayne and Theresa shared the quarantine has been challenging for their marriage, while Spinderella and Quentin’s wedding has been postponed. The soon-to-be wed couple explained the confined space presented a new level to their relationship. Quentin was able to find out things that he deeply admires about his fiancée but also an array of other things, “We’ve found out there’s a lot of stuff we don’t like about each other, which is not a bad thing.”
Meanwhile, Dwayne and Theresa used the techniques from their time on the show to cultivate healthy habits during quarantine – Theresa shared, “We adapted to what we did for the show to our regimen [at home].”
It was amazing to catch up with the couples and get a snippet into what life has been since the show and how the quarantine life has changed the dynamic of their relationship.
