Video vixen Avonte Wright is trying her luck at love….

Or at least learning how to love…..AGAIN!

The alleged former mistress of a Boyz II Men band member, will appear on VH1′s Tough Love Miami.


According to the tea, Wright, 36 reportedly spent over 9 years as the mistress of Boyz II Men member Shawn Stockman.

VH1 released the cast of Tough Love, introducing Wright as emotionally scared……

Avonte is the oldest member of Steve’s “Tough Love” boot camp and perhaps the woman with the most to lose. Avonte spent the past nine years as the mistress to a celebrity, wasting her late 20’s and early 30’s on a dead end relationship that left her with deep, emotional scars. Now, she’s back in the dating scene with no idea how to treat a prospective suitor and walls so high, it would take a rock climber to scale them. Trust is Avonte’s biggest issue and she constantly tests the men she dates to see if they are worthy of her affection. Her challenge at boot camp is to show a softer side and open herself up to love again. And hopefully, this time it will be with a man who will value her as his one and only, and not his ‘woman on the side’.

This season of Tough Love, hosted by Master Matchmaker Steve Ward and his mother JoAnn, will take eight “relationship-challenged” single ladies through an obstacle course of dating and group sessions, to find the reason why they can’t get a man to put a ring on it!

According to our sources, the best part about the boot camp was that it was set in beautiful Miami……

The bad part, was that not everybody could take being picked apart by the Wards.

Expect major drama, tears, and laughter!
