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...

There's a new season spin-off of last winter's hit MC competition Ego Trip's The (White) Rapper Show brewing and this time, it's all about the ladies. The as-yet-untitled sister series will search for a great, white and female hip-hop hope. There are no details yet on when the show is set to hit the air -- in fact, it hasn't even filmed yet. Producers will be holding open auditions starting Saturday, Aug. 25 in Chicago at Dave and Busters (address: 1030 North Clark) from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Interested ladies should bring a photo, a bio and a CD with three tracks. If you don't hail from Chi-town, don't worry: future auditions are planned for Philadelphia, Atlanta, Miami and Los Angeles. For more info, email rapper@vh1staff.com.

We couldn't be more excited to cover a show that has the potential to be Flavor of Love in iambic pentameter.  Maybe the all-girl slant on this is retribution for the fact that Persia was completely and utterly robbed last season.

UPDATE:  The competition is for female rappers of all races, not just white women, as previously reported. See how that works? First season was white, second is girls...maybe the third will be animals? MC Skat Kat, get ready for career resuscitation!

It's been weeks since the finale of Ego Trip's The White Rapper Show, and yet, as we lie in bed at night, one thing plays on a loop consistently in our heads: "Hallelujah holla back. Hallelujah holla back. Hallelujah holla back." John Brown is one of the most indelible personalities that Celebreality has seen, and though we didn't get a chance to talk to him while the show was airing, we thought any time was a good time to get the straight story from the King of the 'Burbz.

After the jump, John Brown talks about using reality TV as a marketing tool, his "Garbage Pail Kid" cast mates and, finally, what the hell the King of the 'Burbz is doing reviving the ghetto.
