LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - VH1 is giving two female hip-hop artists their own reality series -- Sandra "Pepa" Denton of Salt-N-Pepa and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas from TLC.

The as-yet-untitled series are scheduled to premiere in 2010. Eight half-hour episodes have been ordered for each.

The "Pepa" series follows Denton as she begins her to search for love after living a celibate life for years.

"Chilli" from R&B group TLC is also searching for romance and has enlisted the help of Brooklyn relationships expert Tionna Smalls.

The network has also renewed "Celebrity Fit Club" for a seventh season and "Sober House with Dr. Drew" for a second season.

Recently VH1 also announced new primetime series including Jessica Simpson's "The Price Of Beauty;" a series about the family and career of "American Idol" winner Fantasia Barrino; "The OCD Project," about obsessive-compulsive patients living together; and "The Aspen Project," a docusoap set in one of the wealthiest communities in the world.
