Reality TV show “The Marriage Ref” is back for another season of marital disputes. But according to a former contestant the show – Jerry Seinfeld more specifically- is to blame for his recent divorce.According to MSN.com here’s all the gory details.

Howie Kohlenberg, 47, appeared on the show’s debut episode last year with his wife, Christine, in an attempt to save their relationship. But Kohlenberg is adamant their marriage crumbled following their appearance on the program, in which¬†they discussed¬†their problems with a celebrity panel made up of Seinfeld, Eva Longoria and Tina Fey.

Kohlenberg claims producers fueled his former wife’s desire for a new life without him and he is blaming executive producer and co-creator Seinfeld for the eventual break down of their relationship.

Yeah…I’m sure that’s the reason for all of it. I mean they did go on a show called ‘ The Marraige Ref’ for a reason, but this guy is insisting it’s all Jerry’s fault.

He tells the New York Post, “The headline should read, ‘Jerry Seinfeld ruined my life: The danger of reality shows’ … Jerry, Mr. Billionaire, I blame. And his show … The people on the show were pumping us up, saying, ‘You’re going to wake up and be stars. You’re going to be famous and make money’. … I’m not saying our marriage was perfect, but it put it in a whole new direction. It was the nail in the coffin. … Everybody thinks reality shows are glamorous — you’re going to get rich, and it’s going to be the next ‘Jersey Shore.’ … They make you jump through hoops, the bottom line is they don’t give a s—. You’re just another number.”

Ummm, maybe he should worry more about his marriage in the real world than being a star on a reality TV show. As for Jerry Seinfeld, well according to the same story by MSN.com he couldn’t be happier !

Seinfeld is showing no remorse, telling the New York Daily News, “I love it, I love, I love it! When people get upset I enjoy it. That he’s having problems, and blaming me … anything that alleviates the withering, blithering boredom of existence I’m in favor of.”
