Stanger – who is also an author and CEO of Beverly Hills dating service, The Millionaire’s Club – has joined the Marriage Boot Camp net as an executive producer and producer on an as-yet-unannounced WE tv series.

She will also exec produce a second project that she developed and which WE tv will pilot later this year.
