Last week we had the heads-up
that The Surreal Life - The Complete 5th Season: Unleashed & Uncensored
would be coming shortly from VH1's website and from a direct sales TV offer (not in retail stores). The details we had at the time came from the folks at MTV, who own the VH1 cable channel. Now VH1.com's gift shop has posted details and cover art for the release, which has apparently been available at the site since this past Sunday (Sept. 18th):
Here is the blurb at VH1's gift shop, quoted word-for-word:
- A SHOP.VH1.COM Exclusive! Not available in stores!
- Uncut, uncensored and unfit for conventional TV!!!
- Omarosa Vs. Janice- The Battle of the Royal B's Continues!!
- Cross-Dressing Canseco and More!
- Exclusive 3 disc set includes over 80 minutes of new footage!
- Only $29.99!
- Limited Supply - Order yours today!
As you can see, they are highly promoting the face-off between Omarosa (The Apprentice
) and Janice (America's Next Top Model
), as well as former baseball player Jose Conseco's flirting with feminine attire while the group puts on a burlesque show. Our thanks to Frank and also to Trevor Church, a couple of readers who tipped us off about this new information. To order the set, you'll have to visit VH1's website
and get it through them. The button you click to place your order is still marked "pre-order," so this may not be ready to ship right away. There is a listing at Amazon
which claims to be able to sell this set to you much cheaper ($13.99), and that it will ship starting next Sunday (9/25), but we have our doubts as to whether this is an accurate Amazon listing...especially as the studio tells us (and says plainly at the VH1 site!) that this won't be available through other retail channels). We're looking into it, so stay tuned.
