Surreal Life 5, Hogan Knows Best, Celebrity Fit Club 2 debut Sunday

VH1 kicks off three new “celebreality” shows on Sunday night, providing plenty of celebrity drama to shoot up with, so you can be on a celebrehigh all next week.

First up is The Surreal Life 5 at 9 p.m. The cast features Jose Canseco, Bronson Pinchot, Pepa of Salt-n-Pepa, The Apprentice‘s Omarosa, and Top Model‘s Janice Dickinson.
Rumor has it that Omarosa and Janice will be at each other’s throats immediately.

After the conflict starts, Hulk Hogan takes over at 10 p.m. It follows Hulk, who is apparently just “a very traditional suburban dad who just so happens to live on a 20,000-square-foot estate in Clearwater, Florida.” He has two teenage kids and, along with his wife, is “more committed than ever to protecting them from sex, drugs, and the other evils of modern life.” Such as becoming a washed up celebrity reality TV star.

At 10:30 p.m., fat celebs try to slim down on Celebrity Fit Club 2. The C-list celebs that will be whipped into shape are Gary Busey, Jackee Harry, Willie Aames, Tocarra Jones, Phil Margera, Jani Lane, Victoria Jackson, and Wendy Kaufman.
