JoAnn Ward and her son Steve are back with a new season of Tough Love, and this time they are taking their dating advice to New Orleans! VH1 has announced that Tough Love: New Orleans will be premiering Sunday, April 15, at 9PM ET.
The show features JoAnn and Steve as they work their matchmaking magic on a new batch of singles who have issues finding their Mr. Right. This season promises a man hater, a man eater, a lover of deadbeats, and a very awkward virgin! Wouldn’t it be hilarious if they were all the same person?
It appears that the mother-son dream team will have some pretty difficult cases this time around, and I, for one, can’t wait to see how they handle this bunch. Meet the ladies in desperate need of tough love below!
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE LADIES OF THIS SEASON’S TOUGH LOVE? WHO DO YOU THINK WILL BE THE HARDEST WOMAN TO DEAL WITH FOR STEVE AND JOANN?

A holistic chef and health fanatic, it’s no wonder Donna looks much younger than her forty years. However, her biological clock is ticking, and she wants to start a family. Her problem? She finds fault with everyone she dates and often won’t give potential suitors a second chance. Another problem? This New Yorker has a lot of “quirks” and isn’t willing to change anything about herself to find love.
A make-up artist and hairdresser from Texas, Stephanie is obsessed with the idea of love and marriage. Claiming to have been in love over 20 times (that’s a lot, y’all!), she seems to always fall for bad boys. She’s even had plastic surgery in hopes of becoming more attractive to some past boyfriends. Stephanie has come to the Wards hoping they can help her find “the one,” but I think they’ll first have to tackle her self-esteem issues.
For this girl, it’s quantity, not quality, when it comes to dating styles. Despina doesn’t care about a lasting connection if she can satisfy her need for a quick attraction. She considers herself a man-eater, scheduling dates back-to-back. However, now that she’s approaching her 30s, she thinks she needs to find a quality guy and settle down. Will the Wards be able to get through her tough exterior to figure out why she’s so averse to opening up and finding true love?
A single mother of a seven-year-old son, Shalana is a New Orleans girl who resides in Metarie, Louisiana. She’s been out of the dating scene for ages due to past heartbreak and let downs. Her view of men in general is less than stellar, and she tends to have a bitter attitude towards relationships. Here’s hoping JoAnn and Steve can help her overcome her bad attitude towards the opposite sex and find a loving role model for her son.
A twenty-five year old virgin from Boston, she is hoping the Ward duo can help her lose her V-card while becoming a dating diva. That shouldn’t be too difficult, except that Steve calls Melissa the most awkward woman he’s ever met!
This single mom and hairdresser from Atlanta seems to have her life on track…with one minor glitch. She loves a bad boy and a deadbeat. That is always a winning combination!
From New Jersey, Elizabeth has just ended her long relationship with a
sugar daddy wealthy older gentleman and is hoping JoAnn and Steve can help her find someone age appropriate who she can appreciate for more than his wallet.
