VH1 will send nine young ladies to princess rehab via You’re Cut Off!, which is set to premiere Wednesday, June 9 at 9/8c. Via the description published on the You’re Cut Off! page:
“…For these nine spoiled rotten princesses, life has never been anything but a non-stop party, filled with power shopping, mani-pedis and bottle service. All thanks to their rich mommies, daddies and other benefactors who’ve indulged their every whim.
Well no more.
Their benefactors have decided that in these tough times, enough is enough. They think it’s high time their princesses learn how to become productive members of society–not a endless drain on their finances. They’ve reached out to VH1 for help.
So when the ladies move into a house for what they think is a reality show called The Good Life, they’re actually about to be subjected to their worst nightmare: getting cut off. Completely cut off. As in stripped of all their cash and conveniences, and forced to learn how to live life the way normal people do.”
The life-strategist Laura Baron will help guide these women on the path to emancipation. An up-close look at each of the nine young women working their way out of princessdom is below…
Amber is a traditional southern belle from Savannah, Georgia. She was raised in an old plantation home by a well-regarded family. Amber admits she always judges people by what they are wearing and she doesn’t like to be seen with girls wearing cheap clothes. She loves to spend her trust fund to maintain her wardrobe and even took a semester off college to “catch up” on shopping and pamper herself. Amber’s dad has had enough. He’s cutting her off in the hope that she’ll start to apply herself and take school more seriously.
Chrissy is a spoiled rotten princess from Los Angeles, California. Chrissy loves to shop till she drops, but won’t be seen walking the street carrying anything but just her purse. She makes her driver carry all of her bags. Chrissy’s highest goal in life is to be married three times so she can have three fabulous weddings. It takes a lot of money to even get her to look twice at a man, and she wouldn’t entertain any proposal that didn’t come with at least a $300,000 engagement ring. Her grandmother is tired of Chrissy “acting a fool” and prays that she will learn some responsibility now that she’s been cut off.
Courtnee is a beauty queen from Charlotte, North Carolina. Popular around town, this self-proclaimed “it-girl” is a socialite. Courtnee says she is not a gold-digger, but insists she wouldn’t marry a man who couldn’t give her anything less than the finer things in life (i.e., jewelry, cars, clothes, and regular trips around the world). Her parents are tired of being treated like an ATM. They have traditional values and don’t understand how their “little princess” turned into such a demanding diva. Her father is cutting her off because he believes Courtnee is a talented young woman who should finally put her savvy people skills to good use.
Erica is a pampered princess from Houston, Texas, who spends over half a million dollars of her dad’s money every year while still living at home. She has her own line of bejeweled tiaras and consults her personal astrologer for every life decision, no matter how small. Erica has never cleaned anything in her life and truly believes that a maid service less than three days a week is “roughing it.” Her father is a famous plastic surgeon, and Erica can’t imagine life without regular Botox and lip injections. Now her family hopes she’ll learn the value of money and decide to make something of herself by cutting her off from her $1,000+ a day allowance.
Gia is a wife and mother from Sherman Oaks, California, who has never changed her baby’s diaper or woken up to feed her in the middle of the night. Gia cannot survive without her hookah and her beauty sleep, so her husband hires nannies and maids to save her from all the annoyances of motherhood. Gia admits that she divorced her first husband because he couldn’t maintain the lifestyle she wanted. Now her current husband is fed up with bending over backward to please her while being treated like nothing more than a bank. He’s become frustrated by her and is cutting her off as a final attempt to save their marriage and family.
Jaqueline is a daughter of a successful business executive. She has three walk-in closets in her 10,000 square-foot home with a wine cellar and media room. She thinks men are superficial and pick women to date based on their looks, so she sees nothing wrong with checking out a man’s bank account before going out. Jaqueline got her first Chanel bag at age five and has gotten everything she wanted ever since. Now that she’s graduated college, her parents are cutting her off to stop her endless partying and reckless spending.
Jessica is a princess from the Jersey Shore. She’s loud, she’s Italian and she doesn’t care what people think about her. Jessica shops so much her mother had to recently convert a spare bedroom into an extra walk-in closet for her stuff. She doesn’t cook, she doesn’t clean, and her parents have always paid for everything. After a lifetime of being pampered, her mother wants to cut her off to teach her how to survive on her own.
Supported entirely by her father, Leanne is a diva from Sherman Oaks, California. When she didn’t like the color of the Mercedes S-Class her dad bought her, she decided to buy a $375,000 Ferrari when he was out of town. Within weeks, she had crashed the Ferrari. Leanne doesn’t leave the house without her entourage of eight: her best friend, her hair and makeup artist, and her six bodyguards. But the cars, the entourage and fabulous lifestyle are getting shut down because Leanne’s father has grown tired of her spending his hard-earned money.
Pamela is a New Yorker who says she used to be a princess, but has upgraded herself to queen. From furs to yachts to the finest champagne, Pamela knows how to spend her family’s money. Her family is fed up with her endless demands. They’re cutting her off in the hopes that she spends time to make something of herself.
