VH1 Announces Two New Series to Premiere in June
‘You’re Cut Off!’ and ‘Bridal Bootcamp’ Premiere Wednesday, June 9 Catch Sneak Peeks at VH1.com
NEW YORK, May 20 /PRNewswire/ — Spoiled rich girls and overweight brides-to-be struggle to change their ways in two all new VH1 original series. On Wednesday, June 9 “You’re Cut Off!” at 9:00 PM* and “Bridal Bootcamp” at 10:00 PM* serve up two very different groups of women both trying to transform themselves. They may have different issues, but both are in for the battle of a lifetime.
“YOU’RE CUT OFF!” PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, JuNE 9, 2010 @ 9 Pm*
What happens when you take nine spoiled young women, who’ve been given everything by their loved ones and have never known anything but unlimited credit cards and zero responsibility, and completely cut them off? Viewers will find out on Wednesday, June 9 at 9:00 PM* when these self-proclaimed princesses are turned loose by their fed-up benefactors, stripped of all cash and convenience and forced to live like “normal people”–right in the middle of a recession.
In this “spoiled rotten rehab” the ladies must complete daily chores and learn hard lessons from life coach Laura Baron. More than just getting the hang of buying groceries and vacuuming, their transformation is about finding the confidence and independence to grow up and to realize there’s more to this world than material wealth. Who will take the message to heart and launch a new life? Tune in to find out. “You’re Cut Off!” will feature the following women:
Cast: -- Amber - Savannah, GA -- Chrissy - Fairburn, GA -- Courtnee - Gastonia, NC -- Erica - Houston, TX -- Gia - Sherman Oaks, CA -- Jaqueline - Mahwah, NJ -- Jess - Howell, NJ -- Leanne - Sherman Oaks, CA -- Pamela - New York, NY Life Coach: -- Laura Baron - Chicago, IL "Bridal Bootcamp" PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9, 2010 @ 10 PM*
Cynthia Conde, the founder and bestselling author of Bridal Bootcamp, has enlisted ten flabby fiances, divided them into two “bridal parties,” and set them up in a special boot camp designed to turn them into bombshell brides before their big day. The Brides-to-be will be put through “Marital Missions” to lose enough weight to fit into their dream dress and survive a series of eliminations in hopes of winning the wedding of their dreams. The 60-minute premiere of “Bridal Bootcamp” will kick butt on Wednesday, June 9 at 10:00 PM* followed by seven 30-minutes episodes every Wednesday following.
In each episode, the “bridal parties” will endure various challenges with the winning group receiving immunity and the losing party heading to the “fitting room” to face the dreaded weigh-in and possible elimination. Facing uncharted waters these women will shed tears along with pounds and find discipline, self-respect, happiness and hopefully the beautiful bride trapped inside. “Bridal Bootcamp” will feature the following:
Brides: -- Amberly - San Diego, CA -- Courtney - Lives on a cruise ship -- Jamie - Elmendorf AFB, AK -- Kacey - Rosamond, CA -- Kelley - Murfreesboro, TN -- Lauren - Old Forge, PA -- Melissa - Pittsburgh, PA -- Tara - Spring Hill, TN -- Tesha - Portsmouth, VA -- Tina - Harriman, TN Trainers: -- Cynthia Conde - Lead Trainer - New York, NY -- Steve Pfeister - Trainer - Vero Beach, FL -- Francesca Petrucci - Trainer - New York, NY
