A reporter at Komsomolskaya Pravda ("KP") argued that the talk show that Guzeyeva currently hosts, Let's Get Married, has devious tricks:

"The founders of this project had a good purpose in mind – to connect lonely people. But now there are many devious tricks. There now is an atmosphere of bargaining. The "bride" and "groom" advisers – friends and family have with their advice destroyed more than one strong family. As a result those unfortunate individuals who are trying to find a mate go home empty handed. In an attempt to find happiness, they become just a commodity.[6]

Darya Volga explained how she felt that Guzeyeva would ask a woman who had two abortion how did it feel to kill two of her children:

"I led three months of the program, and then the management decided to drastically change the format to make it more outrageous. Several times I refused to articulate those things that I was asked to do by the editors. For example, a woman of 55 came onto the program, who wanted to meet the man. In her youth she had had two abortions, after which could not become a mother, in earphone editor says: "Ask her how she feels after killing two of her children?" I did not repeat it. How can I, a young, healthy, successful, married woman, give a backhand to a woman who already has had a hard life? Larisa Guzeeva can. She is more mature, experienced, tough. I can not watch "Let's Get Married!" in its current version..."[7]

On June 5, 2019, Russian blogger Alexei Navalny released a video, in which he accused Larisa Guzeeva of purchasing an apartment on Sadovnicheskaya embankment worth 90 million rubles for 1/10 of the price. Alexei also noted that the low cost of the apartment was promoted by the mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin, for whom Guzeeva urged to vote. The newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda, without mentioning Navalny's investigation, reported that Guzeeva had been harassed on the Internet and was accused of misbehavior and the use of a living space that she allegedly received as a gift.[8][9][10]
