VH1 Orders Up a Couple of Hip-Hop Reality Shows

Sandra "Pepa" Denton of Salt n Pepa and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas of TLC are getting their own reality series (currently untitled) on VH1.  Also, The Entertainer from "I Love NY" will be getting his own show called, of course, "The Entertainer" where we get to see inside his life and basement bachelor pad.

The network has also ordered up season 7 of "Celebrity Fit Club" and season 2 of "Sober House with Dr. Drew."  On top of that, VH1 has already ordered the new Jessica Simpson series "The Price of Beauty," "The OCD Project" following people with the disorder all living together, "The Aspen Project" which is a docusoap in one of the richest places in the world and a new one from "Idol" winner Fantasia Barrino following her life and career.

"VH1 has generated a lot of buzz over the years by evolving from an outlet that commented on pop culture to a brand that creates," said Jeff Olde, executive vp, original programming & production, VH1. "With these projects, we're continuing to evolve, building on our core storytelling expertise to delve deeper into personalities and issues that connect with millions of our viewers."
