MTV turned Ozzy Osbourne into a fuzzy if foul-mouthed father via "The Osbournes."
Now Andrew Dice Clay and Tom Sizemore have signed up for the TV treatment at sister network VH1, which is mining a lucrative niche in celebs on the rebound.
Channel has been setting ratings records on the backs of Hulk Hogan, Christopher Knight and Danny Bonaduce, all of whom underwent the type of train-wreck TV therapy that put them back in the public's good graces.
But it is Flavor Flay who is by far VH1's most prolific and popular celeb. He's starred in three shows for the cabler, and delivered the biggest audience in VH1 history--6 million viewers--with the finale of dating series "Flavor of Love."
