On Sunday, October 12, at 9 PM ET, Sharon Osbourne will take on a new role as headmistress of VH1′s Rock Of Love Charm School. She has been given the task of teaching these rough around the edges contestants from, Rock of Love with Bret Michaels, the art of becoming more lady-like. Who better to teach them how to do it,than a leading lady of rock!
“Sharon Osbourne is undoubtedly one of the most successful women in the industry and truly an icon in the rock world. We knew she would immediately capture the imagination and attention of our cast and our audience,” said Jeff Olde, EVP Programming & Development, VH1. “Not only is she a true master at the art of the business, but Sharon is a master at the art of being herself and we are thrilled to have her spearheading this show.”
14 women from both seasons will come together under one roof to learn etiquette, fashion, manners and moderation. In the end they will hopefully graduate from “Charm School” as sophisticated and polite ladies. As Headmistress of the school, Sharon will try to educate the girls and turn them from wild women into gracious ladies who rock.
The contestants will focus on one lesson a week followed by a demanding test. Whoever doesn’t measure up to the challenges of “Charm School” will be expelled. In the end, the last one standing will be rewarded with $100,000 to put towards her new and improved life.
VH1.com will launch a sneak peek of the first episode on Monday, October 6, one week before the on-air premiere. Subsequent episodes will be available on VH1.com following their on-air premiere. Viewers can also watch exclusive online aftershows on VH1.com hosted by Daisy De La Hoya, where Daisy will recap the drama of each week’s episode.
