VH1 has decided to bring back “The Surreal Life”—and stars like Tamar Braxton, August Alsina and Dennis Rodman are set for the upcoming new season.
If you were longing for the days when you could turn on VH1 and see some of your favorite celebrities living in a house together and involved in all kinds of drama and shenanigans, you’re in luck because “The Surreal Life” is back! @Deadline reports, the rebooted celebrity reality series will feature Tamar Braxton, August Alsina, Dennis Rodman, Kim Coles, Frankie Muniz, Stormy Daniels, Manny MUA and CJ Perry, as they not only live together, but will also compete in a series of challenges.
Originally airing for six seasons on VH1 from 2003 until 2005, “The Surreal Life” is the latest non-scripted TV series from ViacomCBS to get the reboot treatment, joining “MTV Cribs,” “The Real World,” “Behind The Music,” “Ink Master” and “Dating Naked.”
