"GLAM GOD WITH VIVICA A. FOX" PREMIERING AT 10 PM ET/PT
Vivica A. Fox, actress, producer and fashion luminary, is bringing her
celebrity style to VH1 for a new competition show ripped from the pages of
the fashion magazines. The new series, "Glam God With Vivica A. Fox"
premiering on Thursday, August 21 at 10:00 PM*, searches for the next great
celebrity stylist who has what it takes to become the stylist to the stars
through their ability to create a chic masterpiece using the three key
elements of fashion -- hair, make-up and wardrobe.
Joining Vivica on the judges' panel will be 'stylist to the stars'
Phillip Bloch and Us Weekly's, Melanie Bromley. Phillip is Hollywood's
go-to stylist whose clients have included Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman, John
Travolta, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey. His work has
also graced the covers of In Style, Vogue, Vanity Fair and Entertainment
Weekly. Sitting next to him will be Us Weekly's West Coast Bureau Chief,
Melanie Bromley. London-born Melanie started the magazine's European bureau
before relocating to California where she heads up the L.A. office and
oversees all things relating to celebrities, beauty and fashion.
Each week the "stylista" contestants will be asked to compete in
various challenges that will test their knowledge of fashion and style
trends as they create the perfect look from head to toe. The stylists must
be well versed in all areas of fashion and beauty as they bring their
vision to life through hair, make-up and wardrobe. Those that fall short of
creating that perfect look will have their style license revoked and will
be sent packing. The one stylist that manages to rise above the rest will
be given the ultimate reward -- the chance to launch a career by styling a
celebrity and being awarded $100,000.
Throughout each episode viewers will also learn the secret tips of
looking fabulous on the red carpet.
"THE CHO SHOW" PREMIERING AT 11 PM ET/PT
Margaret Cho burst onto the scene in 1994 with her sitcom "All American
Girl" and her struggles with the network over that show are legendary.
Thirteen years after her catastrophic foray into television, Margaret Cho
is triumphantly returning to television in a new half-hour VH1 series "The
Cho Show." And this time, it's on her own terms.
Premiering Thursday, August 21 at 11:00 PM*, "The Cho Show" will follow
the irrepressible Margaret Cho and her eccentric entourage as she fights to
be herself in an industry that in the past wanted her to be something
different. "The Cho Show" blends Margaret's real life with some imaginative
and comical situations that touch upon all aspects of Margaret's "anything
goes" lifestyle. From the complicated and awkward moments with her somewhat
traditional Korean parents, Mr. and Mrs. Cho, to the more irreverent and
outrageous experiences shared with her colorful cast of friends and
colleagues, "The Cho Show" invites viewers into Margaret's unique reality.
The Cho family is joined by her no-nonsense assistant Selene Luna and her
"Glam Squad": John Stapleton (make-up,) John Blaine (hair stylist,) and
Charlie Altuna (wardrobe) who help her keep it together from head to toe.
Viewers will get the opportunity to meet the people that provide her with
plenty of material in her stand up routines and follow the journey of this
