Besides greenlighting another reality show for Tiffany “New York” Pollard, VH1 announced that it has ordered three new celebreality series.

The Cho Show, a seven-episode, half-hour series, will be a “reality-sitcom” (whatever that means) that “will follow the irrepressible Margaret Cho and her eccentric entourage as she fights to be herself in an industry that in the past wanted her to be something other than herself.”

Luke’s Parental Advisory is an eight-episode, half-hour series that follows 2 Live Crew’s Luther “Luke’ Cambell, who “is now a loving father, successful CEO and most surprising of all, faithful fiance.” The show “will follow the day-to-day adventures as Luke navigates fatherhood with two teenage children, while running his adult business Luke Entertainment Group and planning a wedding with his straight-laced lawyer fiance Kristin.”

Brooke Hogan Knows Best is a spin-off of Hogan Knows Best that follows Hulk Hogan’s daughter Brooke. She has “been tailed, embarrassed, spied on, controlled, and now she is finally breaking free. Brooke is moving to Miami to begin her new life of freedom with lots of temptations and many new responsibilities,” and the 10 half-hour episodes will follow her life there along iwth “her two roommates, Ashley and Glenn.”
