Celebreality on VH1!

All Reality is Not Created Equal and VH1 Proves Just That With Three New Original Series Every Sunday Night

'The Surreal Life,' 'Strange Love' and 'Celebrity Fit Club' Premiere on Sunday, January 9 Beginning at 9PM*

NEW YORK, Dec. 16 -- A surreal affair grows into a strange love, six people learn to live and love under one roof and eight celebrities bravely step forward to acknowledge that they've been losing the battle of the bulge -- every Sunday night on VH1 beginning Sunday, January 9 at 9PM* on the premieres of three new original series, "The Surreal Life," Strange Love" and "Celebrity Fit Club."

9PM THE SURREAL LIFE

VH1 will keep the "Surreal" party going when the new cast hits the screen for the fourth season premiere. This new group of pop culture originals -- former wrestler Chyna Doll; Jane Wiedlin (The Go-Gos); Christopher Knight ("The Brady Bunch"); Verne Troyer ("Austin Powers"); model Marcus Schenkenberg; rap star Da Brat; and Adrianne Curry ("America's Next Top Model") -- will find themselves starring in their own kung-fu movie, riding horses at a dude ranch, and of course, hooking up and fighting it out. Only on "The Surreal Life" will you find: Verne Troyer taking a naked midnight scooter ride; Da Brat's brutal honesty; Adrianne Curry torn between two lovers; Marcus Schenkenburg dressed as a cowboy and more hijinks almost too risque for the small screen.

VH1's "The Surreal Life" is executive produced by Mark Cronin, Cris Abrego and Ben Samek for Mindless Entertainment and 51 Pictures, and co-executive produced by James Rowley and Ben Samek, Jeff Olde and Jill Modabber oversee the series for VH1.

10PM STRANGE LOVE

They're back!!! Fans of "The Surreal Life" on VH1 this season know that Brigitte Nielsen and Flavor Flav made a splash together in and out of that swimming pool in the back of that mansion. VH1 is reuniting the ghetto-flash and Euro-trash pair to see if their love is true. Flavor visits Brigitte in Milan to meet her elite royal friends and mother, brother and son. Brigitte then travels to Flavor's hometown of the Bronx to meet his children and go to church with his mother and sisters. The two then go to Vegas where viewers will have to see if they get hitched or one of them gets ditched.

* all times ET/PT

"Strange Love" is a production of Mindless Entertainment and 51 Pictures. Mark Cronin and Cris Abrego serve as executive producers. VH1 executives in charge of production are Jeff Olde and Jill Modabber.

11PM CELEBRITY FIT CLUB

In this emotional and often hilarious reality series, eight celebrities bravely step forward and acknowledge that they've been losing the battle of the bulge. After being divided into two teams, Daniel Baldwin, Kim Coles, Joe Gannascoli ("The Sopranos"), Biz Markie, Ralphie May, Judge Mablean Ephriam ("Divorce Court"), Mia Tyler and Wendy the Snapple Lady will endure our Fit Camp to face challenges ranging from belly dancing and ballet to synchronized swimming and limbo. Each week, the celebrities must then face the loneliest walk on television as they step on the scales to see if they've helped their team to win by losing weight.

"Celebrity Fit Club" is produced by Granada Entertainment. For VH1, executive produced by Michael Hirschhorn, and produced by Jim Ackerman and Matt Hanna.
