February 2, 2017
With more than 20 million views on her “Don’t Go in the Shark’s House” clip, Veronica “Pooh” Nash-Poleate has solidified her place in viral video history. A school guidance counselor with degrees in psychology and education, she thrives on the online conversations with her loyal fans, but she’s decided it is time to hit the road and meet them in person on TLC’s SHE’S IN CHARGE. People have been reaching out to Veronica for advice nonstop since she gained online fame, and now, she’ll start doing house calls – giving advice and spreading love every step of the way. In each one-hour episode, Veronica will visit people who have asked her for help; from mothers looking to control their children to parents trying to rekindle their love life, Veronica’s sense of humor matched with her no-nonsense approach is just what they need. The eight-episode series premieres Tuesday, March 7th at 10/9c.
This season on SHE’S IN CHARGE, Veronica steps out to help families, couples, friends, and more get to the bottom of their issues. In one episode, she helps restore balance to a sassy CEO and her employee and helps reignite the sex life of two overworked and over-tired parents, all while planning a surprise party for her 92-year-old grandmother. She also tries to help a young adult gain her freedom, a wealthy adult get an active love life, a retired husband who’s spending all his wife’s money on tattoos and even two dads at odds over how to raise their two-year-old son. No task is too big or too small, but armed with her experience as a counselor and mother, Veronica’s relatable yet very direct style is the perfect recipe for success.
When she’s not on the road helping other people, viewers get to see Veronica in her element – at home with her husband, Eugene, and her son, Alden. Veronica makes life at home her first priority, and like any mom, worries that Alden plays too much on his electronic gadgets, so she devises a plan to get him to play the piano instead. Throughout the season, she tries to enlist Eugene to help fix her car, but after weeks of nothing changing, she takes matters into her own hands and hires someone else to do it. Viewers also go along with Veronica and her girlfriends for a night on the town.
