Most newlyweds might not want cameras following their every move.

But that’s what happened for the couples in Bravo’s new documentary series, “Newlyweds: The First Year.”

The show, which premieres Monday, follows four newlywed couples’ first year of marital life together, including Kimberly Cherebin and Alaska Gedeon, who live together in Manhattan when they are not working in Los Angeles.

Viewers will see the newlyweds searching for and decorating their Harlem apartment, with cross-reality-television events like shopping at Real Housewife of New York Jill Zarin’s furniture boutique.

Cherebin, a stylist, and Gedeon, who works in the music industry, told Metro about going through marital ups and downs with cameras watching.

Both said the show was ultimately “therapeutic,” even though Gedeon was initially hesitant.

“I’m really private, as ironic as it sounds,” he said.

The couple said knowing cameras were on them forced them to make better decisions – and perhaps watch their tongue.

“We wanted to hold ourselves accountable,” Gedeon said. “You know that someone else is watching, it really makes you think twice about what you say.”

Cherebin added that the show forced them to face issues they might not have addressed during the first year, “because you’re trying to wait everything out.”

“It felt really good, after the tears come out,” she said.

Next up? No cameras, and more time in Los Angeles – although they’re adamant about keeping their Harlem apartment.

“We don’t want to lose that New York City edge,” Gedeon said.
