Avonte Wright from "Tough Love: Miami" stars in the VH1 reality series.

At 36, Avonte is the oldest member of Steve's "Tough Love" boot camp and perhaps the woman with the most to lose. Avonte Wright ("Tough Love: Miami") 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."
