The Fantasy Suite this is not.

An exclusive sneak peek at Friday’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars pulls back the curtain on the secret stress plaguing the marriage of Bachelor alums Sean and Catherine Lowe.

After the Lowes – who recently announced they are expecting their first child together – have a bitter fight behind closed doors, Boot Camp counselors Jim and Elizabeth Carroll pull the spouses of 2 years aside to “find out what’s going on behind the scenes.”

“Sean and Catherine are hiding the issues they have in order to be seen as the perfect couple,” says Elizabeth.

In fact, 32-year-old Sean has grown increasingly frustrated with Catherine, 29, for claimed she’s felt "neglected" by him during their time on the show. And the tension is mutual.

But it’s Sean who took the harshest shot at for Catherine when he thought no one was around: “My wife is gone. This soulless person who doesn’t give a s— about anything is here.”

Having overheard the argument, Jim says in an interview: “It’s important to sit down to figure out the root of these deceptions now before there’s nothing left we can do to help their marriage.”

In the session, Sean paints a picture of escalating strife over Catherine’s frequent arguments with another Boot Camp participant, though Elizabeth doesn’t think he’s taking the process seriously – especially out in the open, where the Carrolls can save the Lowes’ relationship.

And, in a later interview, Catherine reveals that she’s close to a breaking point with her communication issues with Sean: “I can’t take it.”

Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars airs Fridays (9 p.m. ET) on WEtv.
