Roni Simpson is the Writer and Producer of the Tough Love series. Since she was a young girl, she always had a special interest in relationships and how they work, or more-so why often times, they don’t work. She also began writing poems and short stories at just seven years old. After years of listening to crazy relationship tales from her friends and family, and of course having her own dating experiences, she decided to build a narrative.
Roni received her Bachelor’s Degree in Communications, and Masters Degree in Media Management. She previously wrote and produced a short film entitled Lost Truth while studying in Florence, Italy. She’s held internships at CNN, Entertainment Tonight, the Dr. Phil Show and Fox. Roni is originally from Los Angeles, but is currently based in New York City.
