Fans of the hit VH1 show Tough Love Miami have occasionally seen the huge Philly condo where Steve and JoAnn Ward do the legwork for the business end of their hit reality show, but what viewers don’t know is that the Wards also use their Philadelphia home base as a gathering spot for family dinners. In fact, the entire Ward brood is planning to spend much of the upcoming holidays relaxing at the space, which is actually a converted industrial property that was rehabbed and turned into an ultra-modern loft.
“It’s like our party house,” says Steve, who admits that when they are taping at their Philly abode, occasionally his mom, JoAnn, will cook meals for the entire crew. “Everyone loves her chicken cacciatore,” says Steve.
The Tough Love Miami special airs Sunday, December 18 at 8 p.m. ET.
