Meet the 'Surreal Life 6' cast

153759__tawny_lHe’s movin’ on up, to a dee-luxe apartment with half a dozen other semi-famous folks. Sherman Hemsley (a.k.a. George Jefferson) is among the stars of the sixth season of VH1’s The Surreal Life, debuting in January. Rooming with Hemsley will be Poison guitarist C.C. DeVille, Smashmouth frontman Steve Harwell, Whitesnake video babe Tawny Kitaen (left), Playboy TV hostess Andrea Lowell, and celebrity sibling and drag performer Alexis Arquette (best remembered as the Boy George lookalike/soundalike in The Wedding Singer).

Also aboard is Carol Brady — er, Florence Henderson, billed as ”full time and on-call therapist/advisor” and ”special guest star” (I’m guessing this means she’s not living in the house with the others.)

Is it me, or does there seem to be a lack of variety in the cast? Arquette (he’s younger than Rosanna and Patricia, older than David) looks like the only real wild card in a group that includes two rockers, two ’70s sitcom parents, and two MAWs (Model/Actress/Whatevers). Where’s this season’s Janice Dickinson-Omarosa battle going to come from? On the other hand, the acknowledgement that this cast even needs a ”full time and on-call therapist/advisor” suggests the promise of fireworks. Cross your fingers.

What do you think of this Surreal Life cast?

    Did VH1 learn nothing from Flavor Flav? For a real “wild card,” a rapper from the past is a surefire way to crunk up the fun. Even Vanilla Ice made some great TV in riling Gary Cooper.
    How about someone like… Adrock from the Beastie Boys? Or House of Pain’s Everlast? Ooh, I got it! Sir Mix-A-Lot.
    Also, a lot of laughs and respect can be earned by someone who can barely speak English and can be counted on to keep things moving with endless energy, as my favorite Surreal housemate Charo proved.
    My vote goes to Academy Award-winner Roberto Benigni.

    I want Balkie back on that show in the worst way

  • Thad

    What? No Todd Bridges or Gary Coleman? Mallory or Jen from Family Ties? No TV personality from Eight is Enough, Facts of Life, Charles in Charge, Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place or ANY Star Trek spin-off? What will I do?

    I think “The Surreal Life” is giving TV a bad name.

  • JrsyGrl

    Sounds boring.

    Here’s a list of suggestions for next seasons stars of Surreal Life.
    Swoozie Curtz – from that series with George Clooney “Sisters” (the mother figure)
    Bobby Trenity – from Anna Nichole show (the spoiled brat figure)
    Courtney Love – best known for falling down
    Tonya Harding – best known for knocking someone down! (can’t you see the cat fights between these three?)
    Another suggestion, though his career is hot right now is John McGinley -Dr. Cox from Scrubs

  • Gianpiero

    What about steve urkel? or Cory and Tapanga from Boy Meets World? they are all has-beens.

    Here’s the ultimate cast:
    1. Scott Baio – Total nerd who managed to sleep with Pamela Anderson.
    2. William Shatner – Think of the possibilities.
    3. Joan Jett – Former rock god who is a total freak now.
    4. Joshua Jackson – That’s right, I said it. He hasn’t done jack since Dawson and he’s a party hound.
    5. Janine Lindemulder – Former wife of Jesse James and current porn queen. I’d watch that show.
    6. Grace Jones – Insane.
