Knife-Wielding Divas, Daddy Dictators, and Calorie Counters All Prove Celebrities Still Do It Better

Beginning Sunday July 10 At 9PM,* Celebreality Is Back on VH1 With the Return of 'The Surreal Life' and 'Celebrity Fit Club' and the Series Premiere of 'Hogan Knows Best'

NEW YORK, June 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Star gazing has never been so easy. Celebreality returns to VH1 Sunday night beginning Sunday, July 10 at 9PM* with the premieres of, "The Surreal Life," Hogan Knows Best" and "Celebrity Fit Club."

9PM THE SURREAL LIFE

We had the technology, so we rebuilt it. "The Surreal Life" is back- better, stronger and faster. The fifth installment of VH1's "The Surreal Life" returns with a bionic mix of celebrity personalities including: the world's first supermodel Janice Dickinson; power slugger Jose Canseco; one of the first ladies of hip hop Sandi Denton (Pepa of Salt-n-Pepa); Bronson Pinchot ("Beverly Hills Cop"); Omarosa ("The Apprentice"); UK glamour model Caprice; and motorcross madman Carey Hart. The new season promises to be more explosive than ever when Omarosa and Janice lock horns, the cast bares almost all in a racy burlesque show, and much more. "The Surreal Life" will air every Sunday at 9:00 p.m.

10PM HOGAN KNOWS BEST

VH1's introduces America's new first family in its newest series "Hogan Knows Best." Each half-hour episode of the series opens the doors to the Hogan family home and provides a new definition of the 'traditional' family. Meet the Hogan's: First there is Linda, Hulk's adoring wife of 21 years who is the rock of the family. She is very supportive of the hopes and dreams of her family, but don't be fooled -- Linda has her opinions and is certainly not afraid to express them. Next, there is 16-year-old Brooke. While nurturing her aspirations to become America's next biggest pop star, she also is budding into womanhood -- a phenomenon that even Hulk can't crush. And finally, Nick, Hulk's 14-year-old son, has big dreams of becoming a race car driver. Following the premiere "Hogan Knows Best" will air every Sunday at 9:30 p.m.
