Just about every challenge for Angel focuses around her “taking responsibility” for her career choice and moving on.
First, he asks her to confess to her date, Adam about her son and her stripper past: Interestingly enough, her parents already knew she was dancing to earn a living, and were supportive about it.
This probably has something to do with your parents possibly rejecting you somehow as a child.
This is taking armchair therapy to whole new heights. A twitter follwer asked him for advice after being slapped by her boyfriend, and Ward fires back “Wow. It's one thing to encourage women to be comfortable with their sexuality, but insisting they pose for sexy photos and then BE JUDGED ON THEM? I just don't get how parading around in your panties equals to sexy. It took me a long time (and some lousy fucking relationships with men) to realize that my sexy comes from within.
The intro for Angel sets the tone for her role the rest of the series - Angel is a stripper. Now, the rest of the women participating also have their quick roles to fall into (i.e.
the gold-digger, and the former fat girl, and no I am not making this up) but Angel’s entire on-screen identity revolves around Steve forcing her to pay penance for being participating in sex work.
And that a woman must be able to do this to get a man? I don't even have the words right now to describe how mad/upset I am, by the videos and by the fact that this guy has a show. I'm hittin' 44 the end of February, and I'm more comfortable in my skin now than when I was in my 20s! And if someone has serious issues with men, then I would suggest them to see a therapist who specializes in whatever their problems are, not go to on national television and make a spectacle of yourself. I would only take his advice at face value and with a grain of salt. Sure, the women on those seasons consented to being on the show in the first place, but then again, the producers purposefully choose women with a certain look, and who behave in a certain way.
I love how they do this sort of thing and then five minutes later go into some of the most intense rounds of slut-shaming you will ever see on TV. I almost feel sorry for these tewnty-somethings sometimes, man. Anyways, this show always bothered me because he seems very condescending to the women on the show and it's as if he's talking to them like they're idiots. I hate how this show highlights how WRONG it is to be single! Is it just me, or does VH1 have a tendency to have shows that portray women in a very negative light? Dr Drew said that basically, producers for these shows choose people with personality disorders and give them alcohol and film it. We have women having sex with Flavor Flav and Bret Michaels, on TV, we have women skinny dipping, binge drinking, etc.A record-breaking 350 people showed up for a series of 20 three-minute dates with strangers.Host Steve Ward of VH1's "Tough Love," who signed copies of his book beforehand, was the emcee for the night.Here’s how it went in season one: At first, the women in the clip agree with Steve 100%.But as the season goes on, Ward’s mother Joanne is often called into to mediate between the women and Steve, as his dating advice becomes challenged more and more.The rest of the show is about pushing Angel into bartending, so Steve can say mission accomplished.
