Vanilla Ice Lands Home Repair Reality Show
Vanilla Ice, born Robert Van Winkle, is set to star in a new reality show this fall titled 'The Vanilla Ice Project.' The 10-episode series will premiere on the DIY Network and focus on the rapper's home improvements skills as he renovates a nine bedroom, 7,000 sq. ft. home located in Palm Beach, FL.
"Over the last 15 years, Rob [Vanilla Ice] has taught himself the basics of home improvement through hands-on experience," said representatives for DIY. "In each episode, Rob demonstrates his vast knowledge in home renovation... He calls the shots in this room-by-room makeover series, exposing an entirely new side of the star -- one that his fans never have seen before."
Vanilla Ice has been involved in the real estate business dating back to his teenage years. His current real estate ventures include buying, developing and selling real estate property.
"Financially I've made some pretty good investments in real estate. I just enjoy it. Yesterday's history is tomorrow's mystery, and I just get in where I fit in," Ice said in a recent interview.
'The Vanilla Ice Project' is set to air on the DIY Network starting October 14.
