GERARDO MEJIA, A.K.A. "RICO SUAVE," AND FAMILY GEAR UP FOR NEW COMEDIC DOCU-SERIES "SUAVE SAYS" PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 3 AT 10PM ET/PT

SANTA MONICA, CA -November 4, 2014 - Gerardo - and his famously chiseled torso - rose to the top of the music charts in the early 1990's thanks to his hit single "Rico Suave." Now VH1 is giving you a sneak peek into his crazy family life in the new comedic docu-series "Suave Says" premiering on Wednesday, December 3rd at 10PM ET/PT. When fans eventually moved on, so did Gerardo Mejia, who transitioned into a career as a powerful music executive and a lay pastor, married a beauty queen and started a family. Now the former heartthrob is teaming up with VH1 as he passes the music torch to his children and manages a loco home life with "hot mom" wife Kathy, rapping son Jaden, and daughters Bianca, a fashionista, and Nadia, an aspiring singer and "Miss Malibu" title-holder. Rounding out the hectic Mejia household is Gerado's mom, Mama Mejia.

After living out his own rock-n-roll dreams, "Rico Suave" went to work behind the scenes, becoming one of Interscope Records' most valuable A&R executives and credited with bringing fellow Latin singer Enrique Iglesias and others into the mainstream. But reconciling a pop star past with modern parenting isn't easy, as Gerardo and Kathy have discovered with kids who want to follow in their father's famous footsteps. Add to that Kathy's inclination to be a best friend to her son and control his budding love life and home life for the Mejias is never easy, even when it's suave.

VH1's "Suave Says" is executive produced by Gerardo Mejia and 51 Minds' Christian Sarabia and Angela Aguilera. VH1 executive producers are Susan Levison, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly and Fernando Mills. The series is also executed produced by Edward Paige and Liane Su for Blank Paige Productions.
