Laugh-out-loud, no-nonsense relationship advice from Loni Love—comedian and co-host of The Real on Fox and BET—reminding women that putting yourself first is the path toward lasting love.
A regular panelist on E!’s top-rated Chelsea Lately and a staple on Dr. Drew’s Loveline, audiences first fell in love with Loni for her relatable brand of social commentary and unique take on love, sex, and dating. Now as co-host of the new daytime talk show The Real, Loni doles out romantic advice to an audience of millions every day. Love Him or Leave Him, But Don’t Get Stuck with the Tab offers down-to-earth wisdom and guidance for single girls, girlfriends, wives, baby mamas, and the chick on the side (because she needs advice, too).
In a fun Q&A format complete with hilarious been there-done that tales, Loni delivers answers to women’s most pressing relationship questions—about love, sex, fidelity, finances, in-laws, and everything in between. In the end, she says, you may stick with him, you may bail out, but don’t ever be left “stuck with the tab,” or letting yourself be taken advantage of. Her message is consistent throughout: If women make themselves the priority, everything else will fall into place. “It’s something I think women need to hear over and over again,” she says. “Like multiple orgasms.”
Loni Love is a co-host of Fox and BET’s new daytime talk show The Real, a regular panelist on Chelsea Lately, Tru TV Presents World’s Dumbest, and co-host of the nationally syndicated radio show, Cafemocha. She is one of the few top nationally touring female standup comedians and has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Comedy Central, and other shows. She lives in Los Angeles and is happily single with no cats.

“There’s no wallowing in man-misery allowed when you’re reading this book . . . Loni Love speaks bluntly and truthfully while advocating that women stand up for themselves, take back their strength, and stop being wimpy – whether they’re in their first romance or their fiftieth. Along the way, we meet Love’s ex-loves, her wild and clueless friends, and her bawdy, wonderful sense of humor.”
“She's got sass, she's got class and she'll kick your... preconceived notions of dating and courtship to the curb. . . . Any woman who has been treated like a carpet in past relationships should strap this guide to her torso. . . . Through over-the-top humor and blunt truth, Loni Love's how-to book on romance seems to encourage women to love themselves first—and the men will follow.”
“Listen up: Loni Love is a force to be reckoned with. She will give you confidence, boost your game, and call you out on all your stupid decisions. She's like Simon Cowell with a weave.”
