VH1 has announced today that Fantasia will be the new celebrity to join their celebreality franchise. She will be getting her own reality show to air on VH1 in early 2010.
The show will chronicle the 24 year old past Idol winner’s life as a singer and a single mother. “Fantasia has one of the most fascinating stories in show business, from her tough upbringing to her meteoric rise on the national scene thanks to ‘American Idol,’ ” said Jeff Olde, executive vp original programming at VH1. “Her challenges from fame and her unwillingness to fail have combined to create a larger-than-life talent who appeals to music lovers around the world. So many people wanted to work with her on this, but Fantasia is now part of the VH1 family, and we’re so happy to have her.”
The big rumor is that VH1 has given Danger aka Monica Leon her own show. No word yet on what kind of show this will be. Word is the new show will be announced on the For the Love of Ray J reunion show.
The other rumor is one of the remaining contestants on the show will quit in next week’s finale.
With the Rock of Love Bus finale airing tonight, Bret Michaels opens up about the woman who won his heart this season, as well as why he chose to find love on TV. Judging by his answer as to the status of his relationship with the show’s winner, it might be safe to say Rock of Love Bus 4 might be in the works. You be the judge.
Why did you decide to do Rock of Love when it started? Bret Michaels: When they first asked me to do the show, I was reluctant. So I sort of passed and said do this Rock of Love concept, but it’s not for me. I had just come out of this relationship, have two daughters and like my privacy. I’m not a recluse, but I like time with my kids. Three months later, VH1 came back and said you’re the one we want to do it. You throw a good party, you can hold half a conversation and still got a few brain cells left [Laughs].
How would you sum up your experience with this season’s girls? Michaels: I don’t know where they got the girls, but they were fun and crazy. The big flip of the show is I went in there to be the rock star who dates these girls, but in some sick twist, I became the voice of reason — which is really scary! It’s almost like I was the therapist and the girls were crazy rock stars.
So can you say if there was a solid connection with the winner of this upcoming finale? Michaels: I definitely felt love at the end of all three seasons. Or, I felt lust and a lot of like. It was the same feeling I had at the end of the first two seasons. I go into these relationships with the same intention, but whether or not they last is a whole different ball game.

The full cast of VH1′s Charm School 3 has been revealed today! The Real Chance of Love girls were revealed yesterday, with the Rock of Love Bus girls being revealed today. Below is the full list of the cast. The show is set to premier Monday, May 11 at 9/8c on VH1.
Real Chance of Love Girls – Baybaybay, Risky, KO, Ki ki, Bubbles, and So Hood.
Rock of Love Bus Girls - Ashley, Farrah, Marcia, Natasha, Gia, Brittanya, Brittaney, and Beverly.
The question on everyone’s mind is what is up with Danger? She has been accused of being “crazy” by almost everyone on For The Love of Ray J. Even Ray J is quoted as saying “she’s a lil crazy.” So let’s examine what makes Monica Leon aka Danger so “crazy.”
The infamous tattoo – Yes there are not too many people that get tattoos on their faces. The only other famous person with a face tattoo is Mike Tyson. What compels an aspiring model/actress to get a tiger face tattoo? Well you would have to ask Danger that question.
Pregnant by Ray J – Danger gave an interview to the National Enquirer 2 months ago claiming to be pregant by Ray J. According to Danger, “I was locked in a mansion with him and 13 girls from October until the end of December,” she said. “Toward the end of the first week of filming, we made love for the first time – and we slept together every night after that! She continues, “There is no way the baby can be anyone’s but Ray J’s.” Both Ray J and VH1 denied the pregnancy story.
No Longer Pregnant by Ray J – Only 10 days after claiming to be pregnant with Ray J’s baby, Danger takes to her personal blog and simply posted “No, I am not pregnant.” She gave no explanations or reasons for her previous claims. Was her earlier claim to the National Enquirer a made up lie? A cry for attention? A cheap publicity stunt? Well you would once again need to ask Danger that.
Admits to Being A Prostitute- In perhaps the most shocking revelation of all, Danger admitted to having once been a prostitute in an interview she gave 2 months ago. Not only did she admit this, but she posted the interview on her personal blog. The blog has now been deleted. Below is what she had to say about her past -
“I have done pictures, I’ve been an exotic dancer and I’ve also done some prostitution and that’s something that I really didn’t want to just talk about right away cause it’s a scary scary thing, it has such a negative connotation to it. But I was a prostitute for about two and half years, and you know I was making alot of money. I had all this cash, shopping… all this sh-t, you know, nice car, nice place, but it didn’t make me happy,” Danger revealed about her past life.
When asked was she a “high priced” prostitute or “low budget” prostitute, Danger had this to say:
“I sucked d-ck for free, and I’ve gotten 10 grand for it, let’s leave it at that.”
So who admits to being a prostitute in the past and posting it on her blog? Danger does!
Nude Pictures – This is probably one of the more “normal” things Danger has done. Nude photos of her were leaked a while ago. The photos, sometimes artistic were very interesting to say the least. Danger claims these photos were taken when she was 18.
So the question of the moment remains – Is Danger really crazy? or is she just too honest to a fault? Well you can be the judge of that. Or maybe she said it best when she blogged – “I’m a very crazy woman, this is America. There is a war against free thinkers.”
The 22 year old Danger is now engaged to Nick Cannon’s younger brother and continues to work towards becoming a model/actress.
