MO’NIQUE’S "CHARM SCHOOL" IS NOW IN SESSION!

VH1 Original Series Premiering Sunday, April 15 at 10PM* Features "Flavor of Love" Favorites Pumkin, Smiley, Goldie, Bootz, Buckeey and Buckwild The Premiere Episode Will Be Available On VSPOT at VH1.com Beginning Monday, April 9, Six Days Before the On-Air Premiere

NEW YORK, March 14, 2007 – VH1 and producers Mark Cronin and Cris Abrego are being faced with one of their biggest challenges yet…turning thirteen less-than-ladylike “Flavor of Love” contestants into self-respecting, self-reliant women. On Sunday, April 15 at 10:00 PM* “Flavor of Love” season one favorites Hottie, Goldie, Pumkin, Rain, Serious and Smiley as well as season two break-out stars Bootz, Buckeey, Buckwild, Krazy, Like Dat, Saaphyri and Toastee will enroll in VH1’s “Charm School.”

And, the lessons won't be easy, especially with comedian Mo'Nique as the headmistress. Upon meeting them, Mo’Nique lets them know that their “Flavor of Love” stardom has also turned them into walking punchlines. “America wasn't laughing with you,” she tells them, “they were laughing at you.” Under Mo's tutelage, the “Flavor of Love” cast-offs will be trained in proper etiquette and have their social skills challenged to test their self-confidence, composure and grace. The one left standing will receive a $50,000 prize. Assisting Mo’Nique in evaluating the ladies’ progress are judges Mikki Taylor, Essence Magazine beauty director and cover editor; and Keith Lewis, president of The Morgan Modeling & Talent Agency.

“Initially we had all the outrageous behavior you would expect from this group, but actually, many of the women were surprisingly transformed by the whole process. It's really an amazing thing to see,” said executive producer Cris Abrego. “It's funny and moving at the same time to watch these ladies buff off their own rough edges,” said executive producer Mark Cronin. Both agreed “Mo'Nique really brought a lot of inspiration, heart and humor to the girls. She raised the level of the whole project.”

In addition to hosting the sneak peek of episode one of “Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School starring Mo’Nique,” six days before the on-air premiere, VSPOT, VH1’s broadband channel, will offer each full episode for a two-day period every Friday following the broadcast airing. Additional broadband content will include VSPOT-exclusive commentary from Mo’Nique and the ladies following each episode. VH1 Mobile will also host exclusive video footage from the show every week.

  2. Electra (trinidad) // 14/3/07 2:38 PM  

    TX this is a Coup, relinquish your position.lol

  3. txshawty // 14/3/07 2:40 PM  

    E: lol...I would, but that'd mean I'd have to move...and I'm feeling kinda lazy {jumps on E's couch like a fat cat and rests on the back of it}

  4. Electra (trinidad) // 14/3/07 2:44 PM  

    LOL @ TX. Girl I have to confess I cant wait for Charm School. This finding love on reality TV is getting old.

    Plus my sprit is being convicted so I dont look at ILNY any more. Watching NY kiss on all those men etc. is really getting to me.

    Please dont tell anyone its our little secret.

  5. QuAndA ( Do I Make U Mad? LOL) // 14/3/07 2:44 PM  

    Well, well, well ....good post! So glad we can post about 'Charm School' now.

    Hmmph.

    And my apologies about my 2 year old comment, this month she turns 3 and I just realized ...she missed the terrible twos.

    Hello Mr. New York, me misses you too.

  6. steups // 14/3/07 2:49 PM  

    I don't know what happened but comments were removed for a minute.

    That was a funny-ass comment E...that Tobago trip put something in you.

  7. txshawty // 14/3/07 2:52 PM  

    E: I understand hon...hey I read that scripture...

    Quanda: Hey girlie!

    Mr. NY: Get in here boy, where are you? When you come...HEY@ lol

  8. Electra (trinidad) // 14/3/07 2:53 PM  

    Nah Steups I have been feeling this way for the past 4weeks. U know how I am.

    Plus, something is happening to me and I keep fighting it, which is useless because that is a battle I know I will loose (or should loose if I am smart).

    I have a 2yr old too. She will be 3 in August and she is something else.lol I am enjoying every minute of it.

  9. ~MEALE~ // 14/3/07 2:54 PM  

    Hello TxShawty,Electra,Quanda and Steups.
    Good post Steups.

  10. Electra (trinidad) // 14/3/07 2:55 PM  

    TX what do u think? Quickly, I have to run off to a Systems Management class

  11. Electra (trinidad) // 14/3/07 2:55 PM  

    HEY Meale. How are u?

  12. steups // 14/3/07 2:56 PM  

    Good post, but not good post Steups.

    That came from VH1 I added almost 0; in fact I omitted parts

  13. txshawty // 14/3/07 2:57 PM  

    Meale: Hey girlie!

    Steups: {mumbles} Good post...

    E: I was really feeling it...it's a hard journey getting all of the fruits, but when you get them, they're worth it...ya know?

  14. txshawty // 14/3/07 2:58 PM  

    E: And it's hard to give up all the other stuff that was listed, ESPECIALLY since they're CONSTANTLY in your face...

  15. ~MEALE~ // 14/3/07 2:58 PM  

    Electra, I'm just fine. How about you?

  16. Electra (trinidad) // 14/3/07 2:59 PM  

    TX Girl I KNOW EXACTLY what u mean. Girl its really worth it because its forever not temporary. :) Plus that's just the begining of better things to come.

  17. Electra (trinidad) // 14/3/07 3:01 PM  

    Meale, I am getting there. I have to pick up my pace but I am getting der. Thanks for asking.

  18. Electra (trinidad) // 14/3/07 3:02 PM  

    Guys I have to run. Talk to u soon. Laterz

  19. Electra (trinidad) // 14/3/07 3:03 PM  

    OH and TX, the wine is being served.

  20. Electra (trinidad) // 14/3/07 3:04 PM  

    Everything is prepared for the marriage supper.

    Bye

  21. txshawty // 14/3/07 3:07 PM  

    E: Girl WHOO! lol....

    Bye honey...and thanks ;-)

  22. steups // 14/3/07 3:11 PM  

    (mumbles)

    I'll be away for an hour if anyone wants to thrown me on a bed and use me...maximum time 29 minutes 59 seconds

  23. txshawty // 14/3/07 3:11 PM  

    Does anyone ever wonder if any of the girls were just ACTING (OTHER than as if they loved Flav) out for camera time?? Because with the premise for this new show, those who were acting may have an easier time acting 'lady-like' in order to win the grand prize....I hope that came out understandable?!

  24. txshawty // 14/3/07 3:11 PM  

    Steups: ONE less second than usual?! Why less time?

  25. Dana Sun Worshipping // 14/3/07 3:15 PM  

    Because he can make it happen in LESS THAN 30 mins

    I'm back...

  26. Dana Sun Worshipping // 14/3/07 3:17 PM  

    Not that I have any first hand knowledge. I'm just saying that that was his boast - Less than 30 mins or free...

  27. txshawty // 14/3/07 3:22 PM  

    Dana: Hey Sugah Plum...{dang I think I'm still hungry and I like calling ppl food names lol}...'Less than 30 mins or free', huh? Sounds like a Chinese foo ad

  28. Dana Sun Worshipping // 14/3/07 3:24 PM  

    Tx: Actually in Trinidad that's KFC's tag line. They deliver in 30 mins or your order is free.

    You were close :-)

  29. QuAndA ( Do I Make U Mad? LOL) // 14/3/07 3:25 PM  

    I think New York was acting and others. Let's face it how can it worry you that Tango 'has fallen' for you so hard yet you were possessive and obsessive about Flav Flav and you slept with him. It's not adding up for me.

  30. txshawty // 14/3/07 3:30 PM  

    Quanda: That's true....who else out of the actual Charm School cast would you say weren't as 'real'

    Dana: {Snaps finger} Dang-it...I shole could use both KFC and some Chinese food...preferrably shrimp lo mein....mmmm lo mein {mouth begins watering like 'homer simpson'}

  31. blacknuts AKA PQ // 14/3/07 3:32 PM

    Tx: I am hoping to be able to get interviews. So I can't say.

    I will say that Krazy is a talented Songtress. I am indebted to Pumkin forever. I love Hottie for some unknown reason. Bootz and Buckeey ...they are REAL to me. Buckwild is funny. Serious is lovely. Goldie is REAL. Smiley is a pretty thing. Toasteee is often toasty. Like Dat is REAL. And the other two ...who are they again.

    I am done ass kissing today.

  35. QuAndA ( Do I Make U Mad? LOL) // 14/3/07 3:40 PM

  43. Electra (trinidad) // 14/3/07 4:26 PM  

    OK Guys I sneaked out of my Class because this "sneaked/snuck" thing was bothering me (which does not usually happen).

    So I pulled the New Oxford Thesaurus of English which was on my desk gathering dust and the word is - SNEAKED (I am so ashamed).

    Apparently, when I did my quick check on d computer I was looking at the American version. Woe is me.

    Steups - Please forgive me (E wipes egg from face)

  44. steups // 14/3/07 4:26 PM

  48. steups // 14/3/07 4:35 PM  

    Why does smiley look like she had too much plastic-surgery

  49. Dana Sun Worshipping // 14/3/07 4:36 PM  

    I thought one of them was Saaphyri. She looks different. Who the hell is Rain?

  50. Lady Ty // 14/3/07 4:40 PM  

    $50,000 SOUNDS A BIT SMALL FOR REALITY TV PAY OFF THOUGH AI AM SURE THEY GOT MORE DOING OTHER STUFF.

  51. steups // 14/3/07 4:43 PM  

    Rain is the girl who famously, cursed New York in the bus.

  52. txshawty // 14/3/07 4:44 PM  

    Steups: Shut-up...blacknuts is NOT my anon

  53. Dana Sun Worshipping // 14/3/07 4:44 PM  

    Clearly I need some ginkgo because I don't remember any of that

  54. steups // 14/3/07 4:45 PM  

    lady, it's a lot more than the money they earned on the previous shows

  55. Dana Sun Worshipping // 14/3/07 4:46 PM  

    Tx: Blacknuts is not your anon like I was not 'Steupz New Girlfriend'

  56. txshawty // 14/3/07 4:47 PM  

    Dana: Yea Saaphyri does look a lil different...ya know when I first saw her in FOL, i was thinkin...'I KNOW i saw her SOMEwhere'...{lightbulb over head and 'ding' noise} And then I realized she was one of the people who were tested on Tyra Banks' show about Stereotypes about different cultures and races...she was looking at a Muslim woman and was like " If some terrorists were attacking the country or something, I would think, 'I'm going to HER cousin's house, cuz they prolly got all the guns and stuff to protect us''....

  57. txshawty // 14/3/07 4:48 PM  

    Dana: But you didn't really come OUT for steups until you had gotten a profile name lol...after that you were DANA lol Why would blacknuts wanna hide?

    Pms: I'm a lil interested in how all the girls will react to Monique...b/c Monique is a strong woman...and I know alot of these women are strong-minded, so I wanna see how alotta strong-minded women are gonna react to each other...but I probably won't keep up with it like FOL and ILNY...or maybe so depending on the first episode

  121. Cheesemeister // 14/3/07 10:19 PM  

    This promises to be a train wreck, so I'll have to take a look! As a person with bipolar disorder, it always boosts my self esteem to see people who are even more f-ed up than me, and some of them may not even have certifiable mental issues!
