`Tool Academy' Schools Female D-Bags

Friday, February 5, 2010 17:06 GMT

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Sometimes a woman can be just as big a tool as a dude.

Just ask Jordan Murphy, host of VH1’s Tool Academy, which debuts its third season on Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14).

This semester, the bad boyfriend bootcamp is going co-ed and enrolling a couple of “toolettes” that need reforming.

Murphy says the female tools go “toe-to-toe” with the male D-bags, “drinking, whoring” and acting a fool.

Although the girls don’t sport spikey hair, they exhibit other telltale signs of “tooldom.”

Murphy says typical toolettes are “overdone” and try way too hard to look cool. This translates into a wardrobe full of Ed Hardy, ripped jeans, bad weaves, and clown make-up.

The biggest tools and toolettes wear sunglasses inside the gym.

Murphy purposely avoids learning too much more about tool trends for fear of becoming a tool himself, which wouldn’t go over well with his wife and kids.
