*Licensed therapist Dr. Tiffanie Davis Henry is bringing her expertise to ABC daytime as the co-host of “The Revolution,” a show in which a team of experts help one female viewer per week lose weight and transform all areas of their lives.
Fans of the VH1 reality series “What Chilli Wants” are already familiar with Dr. Henry, who appeared on seasons 1 and 2 to counsel the former TLC member as she searched for love. She has also put in work on TLC’s “My Strange Addiction.”
On “The Revolution,” airing weekdays, 2-3 p.m., ET/1-2 p.m., PT from executive producer JD , Dr. Henry helps the chosen women explore any emotional blocks that may be preventing them from living their best lives.
“If there’s a mental health trauma or past traumatic event that we need to really address or she’s going nowhere, then I step in and take care of it,” she said at the show’s TCA press tour panel in Pasadena. “So it’s almost a hierarchy of needs. We find out which is the most important thing for us to start and we just start chipping away.”
And by “we,” Dr. Davis means co-hosts Ty Pennington, who helps the woman achieve individual goals while sharing his design expertise; style guru Tim Gunn, who helps the woman embrace her individual style; celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, who shares tips on making healthy choices and incorporating fitness; and OB-GYN Dr. Jennifer Ashton, a leading woman’s health expert.
“Each of us, we don’t just stay in our lanes. We do go back and forth, and I look to each these experts as experts not only for the women that we’re working with, but experts for me,” said Dr. Davis. “I think the beauty about the show is that not only is the viewer at home learning something, but I think that we as co-hosts are all learning something as well. I mean, I learned how to spackle a wall from Tim Gunn. Okay? And that was not pretty. Seeing Tim Gunn in a three piece suit and tool belt is reason enough to tune in.”
In the exclusive 1-on-1 below, the Charlotte native explains how she transitioned from her thriving, Atlanta-based private practice to the bright lights of daytime television in New York City. She also talks about the love advice she gave to Chilli, and whether or not the singer found a man.
