SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 7 -- Former television talk show host, documentary film producer and author Ricki Lake is coming back to the small screen with some of the outrageous women from VH1's "Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels" and "Real Chance of Love." This season, Ricki faces the challenging task of transforming these ladies into selfless angels through various acts of charity. The premiere of "Charm School with Ricki Lake" airs on VH1 Monday, May 11 at 9:00PM.*

Known for their amusingly bad behavior, the new unruly class of "Charm School" must learn how to become more independent and respectable in just eight weeks. As Headmistress and an executive producer of Charm School Ricki Lake is taking a different approach from previous seasons. These ladies will have to take on real responsibilities with non-profit organizations. With Ricki's guidance and expertise, the girls will contribute time to a different charity each week. Their volunteer jobs will include working with senior citizens, environmental preservation, mentoring underprivileged children, and animal rescue and care. For the final task and one of the show's biggest challenges to date, the girls will be sent to the devastated Ninth Ward in New Orleans. There they will help with the ongoing rebuilding efforts to restore the region most ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.

Ricki Lake will also be joined by new "Charm School" deans Alani "La La" Vazquez (MTV personality and producer of the new Sony Classic documentary TYSON) and Stryker (Radio personality and co-host of Love Line), teaming up to help the new students succeed and graduate. See if the Of Love girls can pass their first test in the season premiere of "Charm School with Ricki Lake" Monday, May 11 at 9:00PM* on VH1.
