Sharon Osbourne Turns On the 'Charm' and Teaches the 'Rock of Love' Girls a Thing or Two About Being a Rock & Roll Leading Lady
VH1's Second Installment of 'Charm School' Premieres on Sunday, October
12 at 9:00 PM* and Puts 14 of Bret Michael's Most Memorable Ladies Through
Etiquette Class 101
NEW YORK, Oct. 2 -- 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.
Breakout stars from both seasons of "Rock of Love," including Destiney,
Angelique, Raven, Brandi C., Brandi M., Inna, Courtney, Lacey, Jessica,
Rodeo, Kristy Jo, Heather, Dallas, and Megan, 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,
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. Assisting Sharon in evaluating the ladies' progress are "Charm
School" deans, Riki Rachtman, television and radio host and Daniella
Clarke, founder of Frankie B jeans and wife of Guns' N Roses guitarist,
The contestants will focus on one lesson a week followed by a demanding
test, like deftly working the room at a cocktail party, presenting
themselves professionally before music industry veterans, or serving high
tea with an English duchess. As the girls learn to trade-in pole dancing
for polite society, 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.
