"You're Cut Off!" – New Premieres To Air on Mondays at 9 PM* Beginning June 28th
"You're Cut Off!" focuses on a group of nine spoiled young women who've recently been cut off by their fed-up benefactors. They are stripped of all cash and conveniences and forced to live like "normal people." In this "spoiled rotten rehab" the ladies must complete daily chores and learn hard lessons from life coach Laura Baron. More than just getting the hang of buying groceries and vacuuming, their transformation is about finding the confidence and independence to grow up and to realize there's more to this world than material wealth.
In the June 28th episode, the ladies will finally learn what it means to earn a paycheck. To help them find their best suited positions, Laura has each woman write up a resume and meet for an interview with noted headhunter Stephen Viscusi. Due to their lack of prior work experience and limited enthusiasm, the ladies are all assigned to work blue collar jobs in a shoe warehouse (aka - their worst nightmare). While some girls embrace the working world, others aren't as thrilled and one diva misses the van to get to the job while another quits before the day is over. Later, Laura comes down hard on those that aren't keeping up and reminds the ladies that they'd better shape up if they want to graduate from the program. Watch all new episodes of "You're Cut Off!" beginning on Monday, June 28th at 9 PM* and every following Monday at the same time.
