*Loni Love, comedian and co-host on “The Real“ and the “Café Mocha” radio program, says she started giving out advice because people kept asking her for it.
“People say they get a warmness from me,” says Love, who put it all down in her book out Tuesday, “Love Him or Leave Him, But Don’t Get Stuck with the Tab: Hilarious Advice for Real Women.”
“Also, I look at life a little bit differently,” she adds. “My viewpoint seems to help them.”
The 42-year-old, who often appears as a panelist on “Chelsea Lately,” says that the strangest question she’s been asked was from a woman who wanted to know if it was okay to date her mother’s ex.
“Why would you want to?” asks the self-fashioned love guru, “That’s just spreading the DNA around too much. It’s messy.”
Love admits that someone asking a comic for love advice is “funny and ironic” given that love is a pretty serious topic.
“But love is funny and ironic,” she says. “My point is that it should be a lot about levity and having a good time. If it’s not, something’s wrong.”
Although she finds herself giving out love and relationship advice, at the moment, Ms. Love is single.
“Currently, I’m a satisfied single with no cats,” she laughs. “Right now, because of my schedule, there really is no time. But I do have suitors. I have a good time.”
In the book she shares a time where she attempts to surprise a boyfriend with a stripper pole in the bedroom only to end up with her cheeks bruised.
“He was going to a strip club and I thought, I’m going to get me a pole. But poles have weight requirements. Oh, man,” laughs the comic who in her standup act jokes, “I’m fat and I support fat celebrities, like Oprah.”
