She’s baaaaaack. Patch up any cracks in the ceiling, ’cause Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth is moving into The Surreal Life‘s Hollywood mansion. Joining the Apprentice villainess for the VH1 show’s fifth season, which began production this week, is fellow reality TV diva Janice Dickinson (America’s Next Top Model). Another housemate is the suddenly ubiquitous slugger-turned-Congressional star steroid witness José Canseco. Others seeking a 16th minute of fame are ’80s rapper Sandi ”Pepa” Denton, ’80s sitcom star Bronson ”Balki” Pinchot (Perfect Strangers), British pinup Caprice, and motocross star-erstwhile Pink beau Carey Hart. Plans for the septet this season ”range from a surreal burlesque show to a celebrity twist on a charity makeover,” VH1 said in a statement. The season premieres on Sept. 4.
