It’s baaaack!  VH1’s “Tough Love” started it’s second season tonight and it’s definitely living up to it’s name.

 Host/Matchmaker Steve Ward and his partner mom, JoAnn Ward, have picked 8 man-thirsty women and are telling them the absolute, brutal truth. And it’s hilarious! Steve is determined to give them the truth no matter how hard. In the first 20 minutes of the show he told them they wouldn’t know the right man if he dropped out of the sky. Too funny!

Yet the girls are just as funny as the host. From Miss Wedding Belle, who’s 24 and obsessed with marriage, to Miss Last Call, who is 31 and still closing down the bar, the girls are full of drama and issues. They’ve got relationship issues, self-esteem issues, trust issues and just all-around drama.

The girls have enrolled in Steve’s “Tough Love” Boot Camp so that they can learn about the opposite sex, go on dates and hopefully find their perfect match. Through challenges and facing “The Hot Seat” the girls are supposed to learn about how to find and maintain a healthy relationship.

While they don’t always find their perfect boos, the show makes for good tv. The women are hard-headed, superficial, whiny and picky. Steve and JoAnn are honest, funny and at times, rude. It’s all pretty darn funny to me. Plus, there is some good relationship advice mixed among the comedy.

Let’s just say, come Sundays at 9 p.m., I’m tuned in.

You can catch the opening episode again on VH1 tomorrow at 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Or you can watch the full episode online at
