Alright stop. Renovate and listen. Reportedly, Vanilla Ice is getting his own show on the DIY Network. Vanilla, a.k.a. Robert Van Winkle, is going to star in a home improvement show called “The Vanilla Ice Project”, a working title, we hope. There is so much more naming potential, in our opinion. What about “Yo DIY, Let’s Kick It!” or “The House At A1A Beachfront Avenue“?
A network representative said the idea for the show came about because “over the last 15 years, Rob has taught himself the basics of home improvement through hands-on experience.” In addition, “Rob demonstrates his vast knowledge in home renovation … . He calls the shots in this room-by-room home makeover series, exposing an entirely new side of the star — one that his fans never have seen before.”Ã‚Â That’s a pretty amazing concept, although we wonder who will watch since it’s like, specifically made for the Venn Diagram of people who love white rappers and Holmes On Homes, a slim crossover if ever there was one. As for his “wide open” knuckle tattoos above, we assume that’s a reference to the French doors leading out to a lovely patio at Chez Vanilla.
