There’s more than just catty girls from VH1’s past on the slate this fall. There are also catty new girls! And they’ll compete for the affection of both Real and Chance from I Love New York and, most recently, I Love Money. Real Chance of Love debuts (update!) October 20 on VH1. Details follow:

America’s two favorite brothers Real and Chance tried to steal New York’s heart in the VH1’s hit series I Love New York but were both left broken-hearted. Now the Stallionaires are back and ready to find love in their own new 11-episode series. Real and Chance will get their much deserved, and much anticipated chance to find real love as 15 young ladies move into their Stallionaire ranch house and try to capture their hearts. In the final episode, Chance and Real will make the most difficult decision of their lives. With two women vying for each of their hearts, they must decide who they would like to take a real chance of love with, and who’s going home alone.

Details on the rest of VH1’s upcoming fall series (including the new installment of Celebrity Rehab) follow:


Scream Queens (premieres October 12)

The Scream Queens project gathers 10 unknown actresses vying for an unprecedented prize – a major role in a horror movie from Lionsgate Films. The contestants will compete in a series of challenges designed to prove they have the smarts, talent and vocal strength to succeed. Writer-director-producer James Gunn, known best as the writer of the horror film, Slither as well as the remake of Dawn of the Dead, actress Shawnee Smith and acting coach John Homa will serve as judges on this upcoming reality competition series.

Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew: Season Two (premieres October 23)

VH1 has once again partnered with Dr. Drew Pinsky for a second season of the hit reality series Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. Similar to the first cycle, the second season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew will follow the real-life experiences of celebrity patients undergoing detoxification and treatment at a center in the Los Angeles area. The 8 episode series will chronicle the patients’ intensive 21-day program with both group and one-on-one therapy and non-traditional therapies like art and music. The show will follow Jeff Conaway as he checks back into rehab after a series of back surgeries, setbacks and subsequent reliance on pain medications. Joining him in rehab are Sean Stewart (Sons of Hollywood), Amber Smith (model/actress), Rodney King, Nikki McKibbon (American Idol), Steven Adler (Guns n Roses) and Tawny Kitaen (Actress). Gary Busey, who is 13 years sober from his cocaine addiction, will also be joining the cast to take the journey with the others and to share his experiences on the recovery process.

Eddie Griffin Going for Broke (premieres November 3)

From his sitcom Malcolm and Eddie, to movies like Undercover Brother to his sold-out standup tours, comedian Eddie Griffin is a major player in the comedy game. He’s also one of the hardest working men in the entertainment industry…and he better be. He has eight children, two ex-wives, four “baby-mamas” and an entourage of family and friends who make his life complete. Problem is…they are also bleeding him dry – Financially.

Eddie Griffin: Going for Broke is a 30 minute docu-series that will give viewers an intimate look into Eddie’s struggle to get his life under control and how he deals with the pressure of supporting himself and his whole family. Eddie’s problem is his generous heart, preventing him from making the painful choices necessary to bring himself out of a financial nose dive. Enter Doris, Eddie’s mom, who’s just the person to give him a big dose of tough love. Will Mom tolerate the blow-out parties and fast Hollywood life that Eddie loves so much? Her efforts to do this are proving unsuccessful. Can she open Eddie’s eyes to the fact that his life is out of control? That’s up to Eddie.

Gotti’s Way: Season Two (premieres November 3)

It’s the second season for VH1’s Gotti’s Way and life goes on for Irv, Deb and the kids. This new season is about “breaking the cycle” – for Deb, that means taking the first steps towards independence and showing her kids that this is not the way a marriage is supposed to be. For Irv, the record industry, and in particular hip-hop, are in dire straits and there are no signs of change.

Irv’s kids, Sonny, JJ, and Angie, continue their trials and tribulations of “growing up.” Even though non-traditional, they are still a family: Angie is dating and beginning to look at colleges, Sonny is becoming a talented basketball player, and JJ is still the baby in the family. This is definitely not the Cosbys’ or Run’s House…but it is clear that whatever way things turn out, they are going to be Gotti’s Way.
