Reality stars will perform in the Vagina Monologues

A number of reality stars will appear in a tour of The Vagina Monologues that starts Saturday at Howard University in Washington, DC, and features an all-black cast.

The production’s cast includes Taj Johnson-George, who was in Brazil last fall for Survivor Tocantins and appeared in the Vagina Monologues production last year. She’s also part of the group SWV.

Also appearing are Top Model‘s Toccara and Flavor of Love‘s Deelishis, and Tiffany Pollard, aka New York from VH1’s I Love New York. Tiffany is attempting an actual acting career, but says this isn’t part of developing her acting career. “It’s more of a personal stake in this. I’m a woman and I come from a family with a large number of women in it and I heard all the stories of boyfriends cheating, of guys being verbally abusive and I myself, unfortunately, had a few guys verbally abuse me. I just want to be there and lend my voice and take part in this. It’s a celebration for women and we need to be liberated every day,” Tiffany told EUR.

After DC, the tour moves on to Dallas March 7, L.A. on March 21, Atlanta on April 4, and eventually Houston.
