Mo'Nique Sends the Flavor of Love Girls to Charm School

VH1's New Series 'Charm School' Hosted by Comedian Mo'Nique Puts Thirteen of Flav's Most Memorable Ladies Through Etiquette Boot Camp

NEW YORK, Nov. 2 -- They're baaaaack!!! Thirteen of the "Flavor of Love" ladies from seasons one and two are competing again. This time the prize is cash and the title of "Charm School Queen." Mo'Nique lends her comedic talents to host this hilarious new series, "Charm School" premiering TBD.

"These girls are outspoken and outrageous, but they need some focus and direction. I'm just the woman to give it to them. You will see a metamorphosis in these girls, I promise!" proclaimed Mo'Nique.

Season one favorites as well as season two break-out stars will be trained in proper etiquette and have their social skills put to the test. Each will compete in challenges testing poise and grace and will be judged on their ability to handle pressure in difficult situations. In this real life "My Fair Lady," these women will be given the opportunity to transform from a flavor of the month to the ultimate standard in class and sophistication.

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 judging skills from "Mo'Nique's Fat Chance," a beauty pageant for plus-size women, to VH1's "Charm School."

VH1's "Charm School" is executive produced by Mark Cronin, Cris Abrego and Ben Samek for Mindless Entertainment and 51 Pictures, who also produce the record breaking "Flavor of Love" and the ongoing successful series "Surreal Life" and "My Fair Brady." Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes, Stella Stolper and Michael Hirschorn oversee the series for VH1.
