    The Girls of Hedsor Hall

    Taken From: MTV.com

    What will it take to turn a rowdy, mischievous girl into a true lady? MTV aims to find out with The Girls of Hedsor Hall.

    One dozen misbehaving American girls will be shipped off to England, where the breeding of proper young ladies is considered something of a science. Once there, these girls will be given a rare opportunity to completely change their lives at Hedsor Hall, a proper English finishing school, under the tutelage of headmistress Gill Harbord and disciplinarian Rosemary Schrager.

    But there's even more incentive for absorbing proper grooming techniques and learning which fork to use during the salad course: one of these diamonds in the rough will walk away from this experience with a $100,000 trust to go along with their education in sophistication.

    Also on hand to help with the lessons at Hedsor Hall will be visiting American instructor Tara Conner. The former Miss USA knows first hand the consequences of out-of-control behavior. She nearly lost her crown because of her partying ways, but was given a second chance by Donald Trump.

    The Girls of Hedsor Hall -- self-described "nymphomaniac" Brianna, heavy drinker Samantha, bad-tempered Margie, high school-dropout Jenna, gutter-mouthed Lillian, wild child Amanda, party girl Kim, snobby bitch Jen M, foul-mouthed Maddy, booty-baring punkette Hillary, bar brawling Paola, and Jennifer, the self-proclaimed "Blackout Queen of North Carolina" -- will have a chance to smooth their rough edges and reform the behavior that's made them notorious.

    Under the stern teachings of Harbord, Schrager and Conner, these aspiring ladies will be schooled in everything from style to proper etiquette. In their quest, they'll hopefully discover that with the right tools, they can become ladies.

    In each episode, The Girls of Hedsor Hall will be taught an important lesson -- from how to make a good first impression and always look their best to how to maintain a positive attitude and maintain composure in the face of conflict. These humbling exercises will come with harsh critiques from their mentors, as well as the possibility of elimination based on their performance.

    In the end, one of these girls will undergo a total transformation. The journey will be one that forces each of The Girls of Hedsor Hall to answer tough questions about who they are and what they hope to become. They will strive to show the world their full potential and give up their misbehaving ways. But it won't be easy to become the one to attain a diploma from Hedsor Hall ... and the $100,000 trust that goes with it.
    The show starts Monday, February 9th, at 9:00 P.M. EST.

    Sounds interesting, if it were on any network other than MTV. I think it will be a hot mess.

    This is the school that housed Ladette to Lady contestants a few years back. They are harsh and it's awesome!
    Yup, with donuts!!

    Visiting American instructor..Tara????? Did she take the course already to smooth out her own problem areas?

    The girl is/was on the "trun me into a country singer" show....forgot the name. Now this one too??

    I guess it is a paycheck

    Actually, I think VH1 has MTV beat in terms of hot messes.

    I'm actually looking forward to this. It looks like a more real version of Charm School.

    I, fortunately, have never seen a VH1 show and now I never will. LOL!

    I loved a show that came on .... uh... can't remember the channel... called The American Princess or something like that where they took girls from the US and sent them to England to be "finished". The winner got money and a random title. It was actually pretty good and if this is like that one? I may change my mind about it.

    I'm just scared of MTV shows after seeing where the Real World 2,990,000 has gone.

    Aw, that's too bad, becuase VH1 knows reality. If you can deal with the trash factor, some of its shows turn out to be amazing. The first two seasons of Flavor of Love, the first season of Charm School, Scream Queens, I Love Money, just to name a few shows that I have thoroughly enjoyed.

    And you should watch this season of the Real World. Many old-time fans have called it a season that has gone back to basics, and as a new-time fan myself, it's quickly becoming my favorite season.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the first episode...It was pretty good! I think as the girls get into it and it starts to really matter that they do well, it will be very interesting!

    I don't know about this one. I think it is attempting to copy VH1's "Charm School" and maybe a little bit of "Bad Girl's Club" too. It just isn't as interesting. It reminds me of that show "American Princess??" too.

    When is this one on? I saw the first episode and it was pretty good.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.
