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 15 -- 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 (http://vspot.vh1.com), 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.

Mo'Nique has been a star of the long-time hit series "The Parkers" and is the first female comedian to host the music television series "Showtime at the Apollo." She now brings her transformational skills from "Mo'Nique's Fat Chance," a beauty pageant for plus-size women, to VH1's "Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School starring Mo'Nique."

VH1's "Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School starring Mo'Nique" is created and executive produced by Mark Cronin and Cris Abrego for Mindless Entertainment and 51 Pictures, who also produce the record-breaking hits "Flavor of Love," "I Love New York," "The Surreal Life" and "My Fair Brady." Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly, Stella Stolper and Michael Hirschorn oversee the series for VH1.

VH1 connects viewers to the music, artists and pop culture that matter to them most with series, specials, live events, exclusive online content and public affairs initiatives. VH1 is available in 90 million households in the U.S. VH1 also has an array of digital services including VH1 Classic, VH1 Soul, and VSPOT, VH1's broadband channel.
