Chris Rock Has Been In Therapy Seven Hours A Week Since The Pandemic Began

I’m sick to death of these rich ass celebrities out here throwing their money away on frivolous bullshit and then rubbing it in our faces! We didn’t need to know about Drake’s $750K erotic timepeice, Cardi B’s baby’s birkin bag filled with diamond choking hazards or Giselle Bundchen’s $2M Eco-warrior yacht and we certainly don’t need to hear that Chris Rock has been blowing his chuckle-bucks on hours upon hours of weekly psychotherapy! We get it, you’re very wealthy! Leave us poors to our sex-less Tuesday Morning wall-clocks, plastic Target bags filled with plastic Target bags, buoyant turds that won’t flush, and hours upon hours of free weekly “psychotherapy” as we project our issues while screaming at the TV during reality show reunion specials, dammit!

According to People, on an upcoming CBS Sunday Morning interview with Gayle King, Chris Rock opened up about embracing mental health treatment and revealed that since the pandemic started in March, he’s been spending 7 hours each week in therapy, and not the retail kind where he’s getting mystery boxes from Amazon everyday. Apparently, Chris’ form of therapy doesn’t include a 20 pound bag of soy wax that arrived on his doorstep after he ordered it in an Ambien haze, thinking he’ll maybe try his hand and candle making.

Chris Rock has turned to therapy more frequently amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

In an interview with Gayle King for CBS Sunday Morning, airing this weekend, the 55-year-old actor and comedian revealed that he increased his therapy visits to about seven hours a week after the pandemic struck the U.S. in March.

“You have to tell the truth,” he told King, 66, of his therapy sessions. “You have to tell – you have to go into therapy prepared to tell the worst part of yourself every week, you know?”

Wrong! You absolutely don’t need to tell the truth. Where did he get that idea from? Imagine paying somebody that much money and letting them dictate the terms. My therapist thinks I’m an exiled Viscountess with a gambling addiction (baccarat only) and an evil twin. Unrelated, my therapist is my cat. But whatever Chris is doing is thankfully helping him out:

Ultimately, Rock said that he learned a lot about himself in therapy. “I learned that I could be very hard on myself,” he told King. “Like really, really hard on myself, and I need to relax. And I need to listen, I need to take chances.”

Back in September we learned that Chris had been hitting the therapist’s couch to deal with issues stemming from his being an asshole. After taking a nine-hour series of cognitive tests, he was diagnosed with a non-verbal learning disability, a condition that helped him better understand himself and some of his assholish behavior. I also took a series of cognitive tests and, according to BuzzFeed, I’m a total Chandler, which explains some of my assholish behavior! See you don’t need to waste all that money on “professional help” when a Which Friends’ Friend Are You? quiz is just a click away!
