We mentioned it last week, but just in case you missed it, Charm School winner and Flavor of Love 2 alum Saaphyri has launched her line of lip balm dubbed Lip Chap (duh). It's available in five flavors, including Mojito and PiƱa Colada. Who needs alcohol when you have Lip Chap? For the follicly challenged (and not so much), she also just launched her line of Indian hair. She talked about both projects recently on Becky Buckwild's Blog Talk Radio show (check the Dec. 23 episode). Did you know that you can give a dog extensions? It's true, Saaphyri says so. Also revealed is the fact that Lip Chap is unisex (for boys, girls, girlish boys and boyish girls, says its creator). But most importantly, it's guaranteed to keep you from beating a bitch's ass.

To recap VH1's year in Celebreality programming, we're honoring the craziness (and, let's face it: crazies) with an informal (and fairly arbitrary) set of awards we're giving away online. Actually, there are no real awards to give away, but hey, it's the thought that counts. It is, after all, the holiday season.

Part 1, dedicated to special achievements in Celebreality, went up yesterday. Part 2 continues today with the superlatives. The first category is Best Filming Location: Hooters on Hogan Knows Best.


You can see that Hulk's mother is sitting at the table with them, on this final episode of Season 4 of Hogan Knows Best. What's notable about this is that Hooters was her choice of dining locations. And what's dually notable about that is Grandma Ruth revealed that she had just visited the jiggle joint the week before, only to revise her recollection: "Oh, it was yesterday!" She's a regular. At Hooters.

How did the Hogans follow this up? With a visit to Fashion Bug, of course, where Brooke attempted persuade Grandma to buy clear heels, "like me and mom."


That is a tasty after-dinner mint, if ever there were.

To recap VH1's year in Celebreality programming, we're honoring the craziness (and, let's face it: crazies) with an informal (and fairly arbitrary) set of awards we're giving away online. Actually, there are no real awards to give away, but hey, it's the thought that counts. It is, after all, the holiday season.

Part 1 kicks off today. Below, we look back at the special achievements reached on shows like Charm School, Rock of Love, Ego Trip's The White Rapper Show, Celebrity Fit Club: Men vs. Women and Gotti's Way. Our first award is the Achievement in Beauty, Nails Division, which goes to...


...Sister Patterson! I mean, duh, right?

Our interview with Shay picks up right where the reunion left off -- Shay gives us the exclusive word on what went down when the cameras stopped rolling. Find out what was said, who cried and all the details of her reconciliation with Larissa. It's true: Shay and Larissa are "cool" again. Shay also gives us the lowdown on coming close to winning Charm School and how she is extending, in her words, her "15 minutes."

I spent an entire day with the girls of Charm School. No one spit at me. No one cursed me out. And even though I was in and out of dressing rooms, I didn't even catch a nip slip. These girls have really come so far!

Put on your big girl boots and follow my journey, after the jump...

Don't forget that the Charm School reunion airs Sunday at 10/9c on VH1. We had an exclusive, all-access pass to the show when it filmed last week and while we don't want to spoil any surprises, rest assured that beef girlgoesoff was definitely on the menu that evening. With almost the entire cast reassembled, explosions were just waiting to happen -- these girls may have been forgiven for their Flavor of Love behavior, but none of them have forgotten how to hold a grudge. In fact, the clip below, which was shot after Charm School wrapped but before it aired is a nice little preview for the bickering that goes down. In it, you'll see Larissa segregated from the rest of the group -- that's foreshadowing if there ever was.

After the jump, check out a photo of the reunion set.

It's time to get Buckwild...-ish. After the jump, a slightly reformed Becky talks about New York, MySpace beef with Larissa, learning everything she ever needed to know from Saaphyri, being branded the "blackest white girl" and how her road to self-love was not very bumpy at all, actually.

Below are a few extra scenes that you didn't see in the Charm School season finale. In the first, Shay, Becky and Leilene all talk about not winning the competition. That they don't curse, spit or throw tantrums could only mean one thing: these ladies have come a long way in the charm department. In the second, Saaphyri gives her thoughts on her victory. Toward the end, she expresses her need to wrap up the interview so she can go celebrate -- what kind of wine goes well with cherry-flavored Lip Chap?


After the jump, the extremely gracious first runner up of Charm School and self-described "MILF" talks about life after stripping, the fate of her deal with Dean Keith's agency, her kids, her confrontation with Brooke and how her grilled cheese sandwich is tasting these days.

Whether you agree with her victory or not, you have to give it up for Saaphyri's determination and unique spirit. Like the most memorable Celebreality characters (such as New York), Saaphyri has her own distinct way of communicating -- the stuff that comes out of her mouth is all hers. She blessed us exclusively with her unique insight, unflinching honesty and quirky sense of humor. After the jump, Saaphyri talks about winning Charm School, her plans for the $50,000, her thoughts on Shay and Larissa, her gigantic boobs and the drag queen who helped her become the woman she is today. The fierceness starts as soon as you click:
