A mammoth cast rounds out the sixth season of VH1′s popular series “The Surreal Life” including the man who’s band made Shrek rock, STEVE HARWELL of Smashmouth; the actor who made George Jefferson more famous than that other Jefferson, SHERMAN HEMSLEY; the original video vixen, TAWNY KITAEN; the wildest rock and roll axeman ever, C.C. DEVILLE from Poison; Playboy TV’s covergirl, ANDREA LOWELL; and the XX and XY of the Arquette family, ALEXIS ARQUETTE.
And this season, SPECIAL GUEST STAR FLORENCE HENDERSON joins the show as the cast’s full time and on-call advisor. Yes, America’s number one television mom will take this wild bunch under her wing and help them through the strains of reality television.
On the premiere episode, a smart-mouthed Bellhop, Jimmy Pardo, greets, insults and coerces our cast into carrying their own luggage as they check into a surreal motel for Season 6 of The Surreal Life. Sherman Helmsley enters first and snacks his way through the house, choosing the Honeymoon Suite for himself. He is followed by Ãƒber-vixen, Tawny Kitean, who wants everyone to know she has been mislabeled as a sex kitten. Poison guitarist C.C. DeVille, who is fresh out of rehab, and Smash Mouth lead singer, Steve Harwell bring their hard rockin’ attitudes, but leave the crazy rock n roll lifestyle at the door. Alexis Arquette, the former brother turned sister of the famous Hollywood Arquette family sets the house on edge with her entrance.
Surprising everyone with her late arrival, the ultimate TV Mom, special guest star Florence Henderson offers her services as a much-needed in-house advisor. Later, the cast learns they will choose their final roommate from a pool of former reality hunks in the “Fifteen More Minutes of Fame Reality Hunk Pageant.” The Surreal Life 6 airs on VH1 on Sunday, March 19, 2006 at 9P.M. ET.
