VH1 Giving Another Dose of "Tough Love" as Series Is Renewed for Fourth Season

One-Hour Docu-Special on Steve and JoAnn Ward "Tough Love: The Wards Get Real" Airs Sunday, November 13 at 8 PM ET/PT

Season Three Finale Airs December 11 at 8 PM ET/PT

Reunion Special Airs December 18 at 8 PM ET/PT

Santa Monica, CA - November 10, 2011- VH1's love guru and Master Matchmakers(R) Steve and JoAnn Ward will give viewers another dose of "Tough Love" as the series is renewed for a fourth season. An all-new group of single women will learn to shed their bad dating habits to find Mr. Right in 2012. Additionally, VH1 will air the one-hour docu-special "Tough Love: The Wards Get Real" on Sunday, November 13 at 8 PM ET/PT.

In the hour-long special, Steve and JoAnn Ward will open up their business Master Matchmakers(R) to VH1 cameras for an inside look into the daily lives of a family of matchmakers. With over 25 years of experience in matchmaking and coaching, JoAnn's business, headquartered in Philadelphia, PA now faces fierce competition from the world of online dating. Steve along with his sister Monica (Director of Client Services), plays an integral part in differentiating their business from the rest and keeping the company afloat. In the special, both men and women will learn what works in terms of dating and what they're doing wrong when they see Steve, JoAnn and Monica dissect their dates and tell them the truth about why they're still single. Although their brutal honesty has made them famous, the real sparks fly when the family's liberal doses of tough love are administered to each other. "Tough Love: The Wards Get Real" premieres Sunday, November 13 at 8 PM ET/PT on VH1.

For season three of "Tough Love," Steve has brought his infamous boot camp to Miami to make a big splash in the dating pool. While in Miami, Steve and JoAnn work with a group of eight single, attractive women to help them shed their bad dating habits and find out what it takes to finally land "the one." Over the course of ten weeks, the women go on dates with eligible bachelors and endure intense group sessions to get to the bottom of why they are still single. The season three finale airs Sunday, December 11 at 8 PM ET/PT and the reunion special airs Sunday, December 18 at 8 PM ET/PT.
