NEW YORK, Oct. 10 -- In the first season of "Breaking
Bonaduce" VH1 endeavored to tape a show about Danny and his wife Gretchen's
unique marriage and family life, but as production ensued the series took
on a life of its own. Viewers were witness to former "Partridge Family"
child star, Danny Bonaduce's descent into drug use, drinking binges and his
resulting 30-day stay in rehab. What had started out as a reality show
quickly turned into a documentary of a man in crisis.
Danny emerged from rehab with a new lease on life and a strong support
system around him, but as with most addicts, recovery hasn't come easy for
Danny and proves to be a day to day struggle. This season on "Breaking
Bonaduce," premiering Sunday, October 22 at 9:30pm, Danny has attained
sobriety but now he and Gretchen are left to deal with the true state of
their relationship through newly sober eyes.
As Danny transfers his obsessions with substances to an obsession with
his wife, Gretchen may just have reached her limit. His jealousy is
stronger then ever, his need for physical intimacy seems insatiable and his
behavior still has manic tendencies. Dr. Garry Corgiat is back to help the
couple navigate this new journey in their marriage and Danny also has the
guidance of his friend and mentor, Jason and his psychiatrist, Dr. Kumar.
Once Gretchen kicks Danny out of the house he realizes that this time
Gretchen is serious and he needs to make a concerted effort to work on his
behavior and their relationship if he wants this marriage to last. Danny
decides it's time to relinquish all of his demons and seek help from a most
surprising place -- God.
This season, viewers will get a completely honest and intimate look at
how substance abuse affects not only the abuser but their family as well
and the individual journey one must take for recovery. Having been to
therapists, psychiatrists, group meetings and on prescription medicine,
Danny desperately seeks out solace from the one place he had never tried
before in hopes of being able to maintain complete sobriety.
