As previously reported, Joe Francis, the owner of "Girls Gone Wild," is a cast member on the third season of VH1's "Couples Therapy" and so far, he hasn't been portrayed in the most flattering light. He has been criticized for his numerous conflicts with his co-stars, the latest one being with "Real World: Las Vegas 2011" couple Dustin Zito and Heather Marter, which happened on the most recent episode.
As fans took to Twitter to blast Joe for his behavior, Joe took to Twitter to defend himself by claiming the show is "scripted" and that the show's editing misrepresents him. Despite the fact that many of his cast mates refute his claim, Joe continues to lash out at the show and cast members and shows no signs of letting up.
Four days ago, Joe incorrectly posted that Dustin had just been arrested for sexual battery today (as in August 16, 2013, the day he tweeted the link to the article) when he was actually arrested over a month ago and those who know Dustin do not believe he would do such a thing.
Heather wore the same dress in almost every episode she was in. Unless that was all one day and edited, he continued. Joe also claims that Heather and Dustin were only at the house for three days before filming wrapped up and even went so far as to call Dr. Jenn a "fraud." Heather and Dustin were on there for the last 3 days, that was all editing. [Dr. Jenn} looks like a fraud, he tweeted.
This caused a brief Twitter argument between him and Heather, who spoke out in Dr. Jenn's defense. I'm unsure what point you're trying to make, tweeted the ever level-headed reality star. Or how that affects [Dr. Jenn's] credibility. Edited doesn't equal scripted.
When fans jumped in to the argument with more criticism of Joe, Heather, who has continuously displayed a remarkable ability to empathize with the perspective of her enemies, actually showed some understanding for where Joe is coming from. It's tough to get hit with negative feedback to that magnitude and it's a natural reaction to become defensive, she replied, but [Dr. Jenn] is an incredibly kind woman that doesn't deserve to be used as a scapegoat. Her work means a lot to her.
This exchange took place two days ago. Joe has yet to tweet anything today, but as of yesterday, it seems Joe has still not learned to take the negative feedback like a man and has not gained any valuable insight from watching himself on TV.
