Griffin and Francetic, a mother of three, met during season six of the show last year and counseled him and his then-wife and co-star Molly Duff. The two later divorced. Last August, he confirmed he and Griffin were dating.

Two months earlier, she wrote in a blog post, "Within my television role, I am not a therapist It must also be stated that at no point should the role I (or others) provide be construed as replacing actual therapy. We are NOT individuals' or couples' therapists on these television shows or in real life. We do not have a client/therapist or doctor/patient relationship at any point during production or any point, period."

"My role that I am hired to do as a 'Relationship Expert' is to provide consultation to the cast of a television show and consultation to production on topics that fall within my expertise," she said.
