Flavor of Love spin-off Charm School announced its cast

VH1 has announced the 13 women who will be trained and transformed by Mo’Nique on Charm School, the next Flavor of Love spin-off.

From season one, the women are Hottie, Goldie, Pumkin, Rain, Serious, and Smiley, while season two contributes Bootz, Buckeey, Buckwild, Krazy, Like Dat, Saaphyri, and Toastee, according to a VH1 press release. They “will be trained in proper etiquette and have their social skills challenged to test their self-confidence, composure and grace. The one left standing will receive a $50,000 prize.”

The show’s executive producer, Cris Abrego, says in a statement that “actually, many of the women were surprisingly transformed by the whole process. It’s really an amazing thing to see.” Mark Cronin, the show’s other executive producer, said, “It’s funny and moving at the same time to watch these ladies buff off their own rough edges.”

The show debuts April 15, but the first episode will be online starting six days earlier.
