NEW YORK, Sept. 8 -- Rock and roll royalty Sharon Osbourne
is taking on a new role as headmistress of VH1's "Rock of Love Charm School
with Sharon Osbourne" premiering on VH1 on Sunday, October 12 at 9:00 PM*.
Osbourne has been given the task of teaching some of the most notorious
contestants from "Rock of Love with Bret Michaels" the art of becoming more
lady-like. Whether you love them or love to hate them, there's no denying
that these rough-around-the-edges women need a respectable mentor who knows
what it takes to become a rockin' leading lady.
Beginning today, Monday, September 8, VH1 will begin rolling out
specifics from "Rock of Love Charm School with Sharon Osbourne" online on
the VH1 Blog (Blog.VH1.com). Each day throughout the week the VH1 Blog will
uncover the names of a few of the cast members until all have been
revealed. In addition, the VH1 Blog will also roll-out never-before-seen
video from the upcoming series, along with photos, biographies and
exclusive details leading up to the premiere on October, 12.
Additionally, VH1.com will launch a sneak peek of the first episode on
Monday, October 6 -- one week before the on-air premiere. Subsequent
episodes will be available on VH1.com following their on-air premiere.
Viewers can also watch exclusive online aftershows on VH1.com hosted by
Daisy De La Hoya, where Daisy will recap the drama of each week's episode.
"Sharon Osbourne is undoubtedly one of the most successful women in the
industry and truly an icon in the rock world. We knew she would immediately
capture the imagination and attention of our cast and our audience," said
Jeff Olde, EVP Programming & Development, VH1. "Not only is she a true
master at the art of the business, but Sharon is a master at the art of
being herself and we are thrilled to have her spearheading this show."
Breakout stars from both seasons of "Rock of Love" will come together
under one roof to learn and grow in areas of etiquette, fashion, manners,
and moderation. They will be refined in hopes to graduate from "Charm
School" as sophisticated and polite ladies. And who better to push these
girls down the road to renewal and re-discovery than Sharon Osbourne. As
Headmistress of "Charm School," Sharon will attempt to educate the girls
about the evilness of their rebellious and wild ways and hopefully
transform them into gracious ladies who rock.
The contestants will focus on one lesson a week followed by a demanding
test. Whoever doesn't measure up to the challenges of "Charm School" will
be expelled. In the end, the last one standing will be rewarded with
$100,000 to put towards her new and improved life.
