Tough Love is returning to VH1 next month for its third season, but this time around there is a twist!
The latest edition will feature the matchmaking mother and son duo, JoAnn and Steve Ward, as they try to help six couples who are all on the brink of deciding whether to get engaged or break up.
The couples will endure lessons designed to test their relationships on every level. From sex and temptation to money and communication, each episode’s lesson will coincide with issues that make-or-break every relationship. At the end, each couple will determine if they’re finally ready to take a big leap and get married or call it quits and move on.
VH1 Tough Love Couples is set to premiere on VH1 Monday, April 12 at 9:00 PM.

Has Kim Kardashian become too famous for the reality show that helped make her famous? That might be the case according to a new report.
RadarOnline is reporting that Kim could very well be leaving her hit reality show – Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The reason? Well apparently negotiations have began for the 5th season of the E! show and Kim is asking for a lot of money, more money than the E! network can afford.
And why is Kim asking for more money? Well she has noticeably become extremely popular, and apparently has many lucrative opportunities lined up to the point that it simply doesn’t pay to stay on the show.
“Kim’s advisors feel that it’s time to explore bigger deals on bigger networks,” a television insider tells Radar. “She’s right to feel like she doesn’t need to open up her personal life to make a living on TV. It looks like Kim can make a lot more money than the TV show can pay her, especially through her endorsement deals and doing appearances on bigger network shows.”
According to the source, Kim made more money from her Carl’s Jr commercial than she did from an entire season of KUWTK.
Kim is demanding an estimated $300,000 per episode which leaves the E! network in a tight spot as they cannot afford that even though the finale episode of KUWTK was the highest rated show in the history of the network.
The source says E! might decide to continue filming the show with just Kris Jenner, husband Bruce, and younger kids Rob, Kendall and Kylie, or they might just shut down the show all together and focus on Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami, which was also a big hit for the network.
As of now, the ball seems to be in E!’s court, but Kim might want to reconsider leaving the show, once upon a time Paris Hilton was very popular as well, but not so much these days. It’s likely that Kim needs the reality show to keep her popularity going strong.

OK magazine caught up with the 39 year-old reality star who shared that though her wedding is just days away, she is not nervous about anything. “I’m not nervous about getting married,” reveals Bethenny. “This whole part in between the planning, the rehearsal dinner, showers and girly stuff that’s the part that’s annoying. I just want to roll down the aisle and then I’ll be happy.”
And what is Bethenny, who is due in June, looking forward to the most about married life with fiance Jason Hoppy? “We have the best time,” she said. “We laugh, he’s the sweetest person, he’s a great partner, he’s so caring, and we’re bringing a baby into this world together.”
As for what her wedding will be like, Bethenny explains, “It’s going to be a really beautiful, classic New York wedding.”
Though Bethenny did not reveal the exact date of her wedding, it’s safe to assume it will be sometime this weekend. Her co-stars Ramona Singer and Alex McCord have been invited, no word on whether former BFF Jill Zarin was invited.
Even better, Patti Stanger will be moving her company to New York City, where she will be filming the fourth season. The show has proved to be a hit for Bravo as the ratings for the third season, currently airing on Bravo, have been the highest ever for the series.
The fourth season will reportedly feature Patti planning her own wedding to fiance Andy Friedman, all while attempting to run her business in NYC. The first three seasons were filmed in Los Angeles.
Tonight is the Part 1 of the long awaited reunion of Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club! The Part 2 is scheduled to air March 23 at 10pm ET/PT.
This fourth season has been a mega hit for the network, mostly thanks to the delusions of grandeur of Natatlie Nunnaka “I Run LA.” Whether you love or hate Natalie, you must admit, she definitely made this season a must see. As we previously reported, this season has brought the Oxygen network its highest ratings ever. The show averaged millions of viewers each week.
So what can we expect in the reunion? Well for one, it will be hosted by gossip queen – Perez Hilton. Flo and Natalie will get into a physical fight which resulted in dresses being ripped and torn earlobes. Kate and Natalie will also get into it, as the two are shown spitting on each other.
Bourgy.com is also reporting that two of the bad girls are currently pregnant. Portia Beaman and Amber Lynn are the two pregnant bad girls. A photo of them taken at the Reunion show is below.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS SEASON & THE REUNION SHOW?
Bethenny had said in past interviews that she intended to marry fiance,Jason Hoppy, after giving birth, so why the sudden change? Well the NYPost is reporting Bethenny changed the date of her wedding to fit Bravo’s shooting schedule for her upcoming reality show – ‘Bethenny’s Getting Married?’
The Post reports Bethenny’s wedding will take place at the Four Seasons and the invitations which have been sent out stated the following - “This event will be videotaped and re corded for use in and in connection with the television pro gram tentatively entitled ‘Bethenny’s Get ting Married?’ By attending, you are consenting to the use of your name, voice and likeness in and in connection with ‘Bethenny’s Getting Married?’ and any other production, in any and all media now known or later devised, worldwide, in perpetuity, including in advertisements and promotions.”
Another “source” is however telling The Post Bethenny might have had another reason for pushing up her wedding date. “If she’s a heavily pregnant bride, she’ll get more attention. The other housewives are so grossed out by how fake she is, none will attend the wedding unless Bravo makes them,” says the insider. “She doesn’t even want the other wives at her wedding. She feels she’s a bigger star.”
Accompanying Gretchen was her boy-toy boyfriend Slade Smiley. The duo were photographed shopping at Trina Turk in West Hollywood. Photos are below.
Gretchen denied on the reunion show that neither she nor Slade ever call up the paparazzi to come and take their photos, but we’re not so sure we’re buying that.
Gretchen also continues to work on her new make up line, Gretchen Christine Beaute, and recently took some promo photos for that by photographer Daniel Ramos of Drop Zone Films. Behind the scenes photos of that are below as well.
