Everything You Need To Know About 'Put A Ring On It' Season 2

Will they decide to call it quits, or is it time to officially put a ring on it?

Culture & Entertainment

The OWN Network returns with its highly anticipated Will Packer-produced relationship series, Put A Ring On It for Season 2. Life and relationship master coach, Dr. Nicole LaBeach will follow three couples as they navigate their way to the altar. Along their journey, love and trust between each partner, will be tested as they witness their significant others date complete strangers.


Temptation and consequences are at stake, as they push their relationships to the limit and see if there is a love connection they've been missing all along. The question is, will they decide to call it quits, or is it time to officially put a ring on it?

Entrepreneur Jessica and former NFL player Eric have been at odds in their relationship from the very beginning. The former pro-baller might have spent his fair share of time playing the field and as a result, the two are not always on the same page about matters of the heart. Though the couple have been dating for four years, an "I do" might still be out of reach.

Comedian Eric and industry professional LaRhonda have their heart matters on lock, but their money matters? Not so much. For this couple who have been dating for three years, what's keeping them from going down the aisle is a difference in tax brackets. Eric longs to feel more financially established before putting a ring on it.

14 years is a long time to be dealing with someone without the security of where the relationship is headed. This is probably one of the reasons why this couple have been on and off for over a decade. Though the relationship is now progressing for the former basketball player and Field Mob member (by way of moving in together), it still seems they are not completely on the same page about what forever looks like.

While the words "I do" are on pause for the couples, Dr. LaBeach uses her 20+ years of coaching experience to be an anchor using her professional tools to keep the couples connected. "If you can effectively communicate, so many things shift for a relationship. Nonverbal communication gives access to words so that the other person can understand," Dr. LaBeach shares.

When asked how important is it to have life coaching and therapy throughout a relationship, Dr. LaBeach responds, "If I could have it my way, it would be a requirement for every relationship on a quarterly basis, to connect with a coach or therapist to make sure that things that are going to strengthen a relationship are being activated, and the things that deteriorate a relationship can be excused and given a quick exit."

As the hit Will Packer Productions show kicks off their new season, Dr. LaBeach joyfully makes it known that she is not so much rooting for the couples when doing her job, but rooting for their relationships. She explains the outcome is more meaningful and cherishable when having that mindset.

Put A Ring On It Season 2 will air this Friday, June 25 at 10/9c p.m. on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Check out the first episode of the season before it premieres by clicking here.

Something that I try to mention, as much as possible, especially when it comes to married and long-term couples is, if you want to go the distance, it's not just the "big things" that you've got to stay up on; it's the little things too. Something as simple as you being a morning person while your partner is a night owl can affect everything from quality of sleep to quality time to your sex life. That's why, when it comes to couples who have different sleep patterns who still want to have a fulfilling sexual dynamic, I'm all about encouraging them to do what is at the foundation for all successful relationships — compromise. Sometimes that means that an alarm clock needs to be set or someone needs to initiate some, umm, stuff (more on that in a bit) in order to get the juices flowing (pun intended and not intended).

The beloved comedian grew up in the foster care system and originally wanted to be a foster mom, but with advice from her lawyers, she decided that adoption would be best. However, it looks like we won't see her with a child anytime soon.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"
