NEW YORK, NY, JUNE 14, 2010 - BIO Channel brings "Celebrity Ghost Stories," it's most watched original series of all time, back to showcase more celebrities as they share their true, personal encounters with the paranormal and premieres the all-new series, "My Ghost Story" showcasing real people who captured their paranormal experience on camera.

The hit series features descriptive, personal accounts that deliver a compelling, surprising and downright chilling look into the world of the paranormal.

In the second season premiere, Michael Imperioli meets a tormented spirit at the legendary Chelsea Hotel; Joan Collins enrages a vengeful ghost during a dinner party in Venice; a young Donna D'Errico befriends a little girl who's not what she seems; and a spirit gets Corey Feldman's life back on track.
