Lorenzo Lamas' icky family therapy

Lamas_lf Mike Fleiss' new E! docusoap reality show "The Lamas Life" is on the TCA stage and critics waste no time swooping into the big tabloid question: What's going on in this family after Star magazine reported that Lorenzo Lamas' son slept with his ex-wife?

Both Lamas and AJ were onstage and looking slightly uncomfortable ... though perhaps not as uncomfortable as they should be. Here's the exchange:

Critic to Lamas: "What's the relationship like?"

Lamas: "Strained."

Critics: "What's that like [doing the show]?"

Lamas: "It's unusual."

Critic: "So why do it?"

Lamas: "There's a chance we can make things better."

Critic: "Through a TV show?"

Lamas: "Through the circumstance of a TV show."

Critic: "Is that the healthiest way [to do this]?"

Lamas: "The fact is I've seen more of AJ the past two weeks than for the past four years."

Critic: "It's a good line ... but kind of scary, that a TV show is the catalyst."

Lamas: "It's a reflection of the society that we're living in ... I'm just looking at it as an opportunity to get closer to my kids."

AJ: "I felt the same way, man. A f--king TV show? Honestly, if it takes a TV show to come back together, so be it. I have my issues with him from when i was younger but ... watch the show."

Mike Fleiss chimes in: "There's only one way to get a family back together and that’s on televison."
