Mo’Nique will host Charm School for former Flavor of Love women

Flavor of Love is getting yet another spin-off. VH1 will air Charm School, a competition between women from both seasons of Flavor Flav’s show. The winner will win the title of “Charm School Queen” and win a to-be-determined cash prize.

Mo’Nique will host the series, in which the women “will be trained in proper etiquette and have their social skills put to the test,” according to a VH1 press release. “Each will compete in challenges testing poise and grace and will be judged on their ability to handle pressure in difficult situations.”

They “will be given the opportunity to transform from a flavor of the month to the ultimate standard in class and sophistication.” Good luck with that.

The show does not yet have a debut date, so it’s unclear whether it will air before or after Flavorette (which is apparently now called I Love New York) the spin-off that will follow New York as she chooses a suitor from a group of crazy men.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
