VH1 announces new 'Salt 'N Pepa Show' to premiere October 15

VH1 has announced The Salt 'N Pepa Show, a new docu-reality series that will follow former female rap group Salt N' Pepa as they reunite, will premiere on Monday, October 15.
Cheryl "Salt" James and Sandra "Pepa" Denton were responsible for such hits as "Push It," Let's Talk About Sex," "Shoop," and "Whatta Man" in the late 1980s/early 1990s, selling 12 million albums and winning the 1995 Grammy Award for best rap performance by a duo or group.
However they called it quits in 2002, as Salt sought-out religion and Pepa turned to reality television, appearing in VH1's The Surreal Life 5 in 2005 and placing third on The Surreal Life: Fame Games this past spring.
The Salt 'N Pepa Show will follow the duo as they attempt to reunite both as friends and musical collaborators -- which is apparently easier said than done -- as Salt lives the quiet life in Long Island, NY with her husband and is still angry about being underappreciated while Pepa continues to party and places the blame on Salt for breaking up the group in the first place.
The Salt 'N Pepa Show is executive produced by Banks Tarver and Ken Druckerman for Left/Right Inc., with Michael Hirschorn, Shelly Tatro and Danielle Gelfand serving as executive producers for VH1.
