Love is a Battlefield, Complete With Shock Treatments

Have any of you guys watched the first two episodes of the new VH1 reality show,
Tough Love?

In a nutshell, a group of women who have not yet found “true love” are all put in a house together while male Matchmaker Steve tries to figuratively slap some sense into them so that they will not keep scaring possible mates away.

In this week’s episode half of the girls go on a “date” while being watched by Mr. Matchmaker. In order to control what they say to their dates, he attaches a “zapper” to their leg.

Yes, a zapper! Like an electric fence collar that a dog would wear to keep him in his yard.

I know it sounds sadistic, but after hearing some of these women whine about the fact that they aren’t married yet at 25, seeing them zapped is pretty freaking funny.

Almost as funny as the first episode which has the divisive diva of the crew cluelessly leaning over a bidet while turning it on and taking the stream right in the face.

Who says there isn’t anything good on TV?

    That sounds GREAT!

    I’ve GOT to upgrade our satellite package. I’m missing some good bad tv.

  2. I’ve never been a fan of reality TV as I’m already overwhelmed with the reality of my life. 🙂 I might have to try out a show over spring break.

  3. I saw the previews for that! It looks darn funny.

    I can.not.believe you are laughing at women being shocked – it sounds hysterical but I was waiting for the “cruelty to animals” statement some place in that post 😉

    I did catch part of the bidet incident this weekend as I was packing away winter clothes and nothing else was on TV. Step away from the reality shows…

  5. Ha. I thought this was going to be a battlestar review. Gotta TiVo this latest train wreck.

  6. And we have just – dammit! – reduced our television package. No good tv for me, ever again.

    I hate to admit it but, I’m hooked on the show!
    I can’t believe I missed the shock treatment episode. I’m sure I’ll have a chance to see it.
    Those women were born to make me feel better about myself. I’m sure of it!
