Blame it on Seinfeld because he forced you to do a reality show...

It never ceases to amaze me that there are so many people unwilling to take responsibility for their own actions. Take the case of Howie Kohlenberg of New York City. He and his former wife appeared on Jerry Seinfeld's "The Marriage Ref" when they were married but his wife has now divorced him and he's bankrupt and facing eviction.

Kohlenberg says,"Jerry Seinfeld ruined my life" after his wife left him to pursue her own reality-show dream and her desire to be a Playboy centerfold. Kohlenberg claims he only went on the show to get publicity for his business, stating that the producers of the show told him he would be made famous and his business would get lots of publicity which never came to be.

The last thing a couple with marital problems should be doing is participating in a reality show in an effort to solve their disputes. If Kohlenberg and his wife were serious about saving their troubled marriage, they would have seen a counselor, privately.  But alas, it wasn't about saving their marriage, it was about the money and now look where it got them. They're divorced, she's doing a new reality show and living with some guy and he's broke and losing his home. If Kohlenberg wants to place blame, he needs to first look in the mirror.
