With the help of his relationship-savvy mom JoAnn Ward, Steve will place these ladies though the ringer as he gives them unprecedented insight into the male perspective.

The music mogul is back with a new batch of hopefuls vying to win one of the toughest yet most rewarding jobs in the business—Diddy’s personal assistant. However, this isn’t your average, run-of-the-mill hiring process. Through a rigorous series of physical, mental and entrepreneurial tests, one of hip-hop’s most high profile CEO’s will whittle down contestants until one proves themselves to be worthy of the title.

From his sitcom Malcolm and Eddie, his hit movies like Undercover Brother to his sold out stand-up tours, comedian Eddie Griffin is one of the hardest working men in comedy… and he better be. He has eight children, five exes and an entourage of family and friends who make his life complete. The series introduces the rest of his lovable family like his mother Doris, 70-year old Uncle Curtis (who is an amateur porn star, looking to turn pro), Eddie Junior, an aspiring singer whose studio costs are staggering, and JC, the gargantuan Ex NFL pro – turned boxer, who Eddie hopes to take to the top. Of course, all of them are bleeding Eddie dry as he works himself to death, trying to help them realize their own dreams.

    I was really disappointed with the way Tough Love ended its first season. It was very anticlimactic…..boring! Maybe the second season will be better….but can we PLEASE get a second season of Megan?! A couple of years ago there was a show that sent stars into haunted places with cameras so that we could watch them freak out….THAT was brilliant!

    Hey why don’t you help someone my age 53 Like Me…Hello older women need help too…thanks.

  19. Jill says:

    TOUGH LOVE Season 2: I’m really disappointed to see someone who is so obviously a media junky – Rocky DeMarco – take a spot on the show. Is there NOT one other single woman more deserving ? This person has pandered both herself and her daughter in a misquided and pathetic quest for attention and fame. Rocky needs to go on a retreat with Kanye and do some deep introspection as to why they are both completely self-absorbed human beings that need to upgrade their souls. Two weeks on a deserted island in each other’s company might serve as therapy for their toxic personalities. Kanye would probably lose his attitude & start building a one man raft by day four.
    I can’t think of anyone I dislike enough that I would set up on a date with Rocky DeMarco – Is Ted Bundy still available?

  20. DirtTruthNC93 says:

    In terms of the girl Kanisha (if that’s spelled right) on the show. 1st of she’s not even “fine”, the girls next door to me have more leverage to be superficial than she does, literally. 2nd, with women like this are always funny, she obviously delusional because she thinks that men think she is too forward and controlling when in reality she doesn’t control anything. Women can’t play men games so sizing a man up get you sized up and that’s more than likely what has happened to all of her so called relationships. 3rd, she wants certain things but has no ambition about herself, her only ambition is based on the ambition of the next person, she’s a property manager for christ sakes! If she were in a 6 or 7 figure salary position, it might make since to want someone who at least makes what she does, but she wants someone bringing 100 to 200 times more than her. Thats not just superficial, all jokes aside, for any female or male to think like this calls for a pysch eval, it is in order.

  21. Debra says:

    I just watched the new Tough Love 2 show. What was VH1 thinking casting Rocky? She was a pathetic, slutty stage mother on I Want To Make My Kid A Star. I hope Rocky gets kicked off soon. She’s too old and white trash to try to make a living on reality shows.

  22. LindsayF says:

    i never watch this show but i decided to saturday night and the first thing i herd the host say was “single moms dont mention your kids at first” or something to that affect… this made me turn the show off… find a new host!!! Family is what’s most important and my SON is what im most proud of! Im a single mom and i’ll scream it from the mountian tops!

  23. Renne says:

    I truly love watching tough love,i lost my bf and husband to cancer 7yrs ago,i am a singe mom now.and i would love to have been on this show.Why is Rockey on here she was on the show trying to make her daughter a beauty queen.and OMG Taylor she gets on my last flipping nervos thinks the world should just stop for her.and the way she talks kills me.What was U thinking having her back on the show.She is a DRAMA!!!QUEEN,but i must say i love when Steve tells her like it is.shut up or get the hell out.see how fast she shuts that BIG MOUTH!!!!..and poor Jenny you are BEATIFUL!!!!stop putting yourself down you should look at just how far you have came losing all that hold that head up are going to be loved.maybe i well get the chance to be on the show yes im in dreamland

  24. Meagan says:

    I think Tough Love is great!! However, I think that I could be the biggest challenge Steve would ever have, and I think he would fail..

  25. DJ says:

    I’m glad that Tough Love is back on. After the first season of celebrity Rehab, I really lost interest in the show, and I don’t really care for Diddy’s show. I was wondering if they will ever have a season of Tough Love for the men and the gays. After all, the women aren’t the only ones having a hard time finding love out there. And when will they bring back Celebrity Fit Club? That was an awesome show! And I also hope they bring back Charm School and have Monique as the host again. I mean, Ricki Lake was okay, and Sharon Osbourne wasn’t a good host, but Monique was the best.

  26. Coco says:

    I just finished all of the old episodes from Tough Love season 2 for the first time, over winter break. It’s so addicting even thought some of the girls are really annoying like Jenna. Can’t wait for more!

  27. Cara says:

    Can’t wait for more Tough Love!

  28. Cara says:

    <3 Tough Love!

  29. Robbin says:

    When is Diddy hiring again? I need a career!

  30. Dez says:

    You need to do Tough Love 3 with women who are divorced and trying to find Mr. Right….again! Maybe they are doing something wrong and need an expert to help them get back in the game.

  31. Dez says:

    Tough Love 3 should be with women who are divorced and trying to find Mr. Right….again! Maybe those women need an expert to help them get back in the game by pointing out what they are doing wrong while dating.

  32. diana R says:

    when r they gonna do a new casting 4 tough love 3 i need to know the sign up date in Need to find ;)ove

  33. AJ says:

    I’ve been watching Tough Love, and I wanna know when spin off episodes/shows for OLDER people (40-55yrs old) might come to be, and if they could be based out of New York! Reality shows are fun, but it seems people are always between 25 and 35, and they’re really still young enough not to need the controlled environment/situations/guidance of a professional match maker….where as some of us could REALLY benefit, and we’re not as …. “much of a challenge” as Taylor.

  34. beth says:

    For those of you asking, at the end of some of the episodes it said they are doing season 3 of tough love with couples who are trying to decide if they should stay together.

  35. Massvocals says:

    dear dr drew personally I feel your attack on life stiles of the rich and fame seekers is bank roll
    your translation of abuse / ” problems arised by legal ,family , job , ect this is all or are due because of unlawful prohibation laws Dr drew you are in use of programing effect by ” cognitive dissonance’ thease are government values superficial to the system of things the forces you are dealing with are beyond your real control , to wit rehab shows , the unline problem with addicting person is the law making it illegal , if we would allow those addicted to buy legalize produces we would account for the use and control such measures the matter ,is a med just as over eating is no one is criminal or hydro as such , your program concerns me as to teaching tough love ,,, there is no love in this you say you love the person the addiction the cause and effect your treatment is yet you would send someone to jail vs treatment very wrong when you say there sick Your trying to brake them down brake there whole being to accept your title , they then toot that horn the rest of there lives because you make this situation and love money you I shall pray for also your attachment of cannabis as some drug causeing step is bold face lie
