Pepa and Chilli have signed on for their own reality shows with VH1.
Pepa’s untitled project will focus on her search for love after being celibate for the past few years, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show will run for a half-hour, and VH1 has already ordered eight episodes.
Chilli’s show would also follow her on the path to finding the right man, but she’ll be getting a little help from relationship expert Tionna Smalls of Brooklyn, New York (stand up!). Her as-yet untitled series has been picked up for eight 30-minute episodes, too.
Jeff Olde is listed as an executive producer for both series, which are both scheduled to premiere in 2010. Maybe they’ll run the shows back-to-back? Just a thought.
This comes after news that "American Idol" winner and Broadway star Fantasia Barrino will be heading up her own reality series on the network as well.
