"Suave Says" is a reality docu-series on VH1 that follows 1990s pop star Gerardo Mejia, aka Rico Suave, as he sings a new tune as a frenzied family man.

Gerardo — and his famously chiseled torso — rose to the top of the music charts in the early 1990s thanks to his hit single "Rico Suave." When fans eventually moved on, so did Gerardo, who transitioned into a career as a powerful music executive, married a beauty queen and started a family. Now the former heartthrob is teaming up with VH1 as he passes the music torch to his children and manages a loco home life with "hot mom" wife Kathy, rapping son Jaden, and daughters Bianca, a fashionista, and Nadia, an aspiring singer and "Miss Teen Beverly Hills" title-holder. Rounding out the hectic Mejia household are 20-year-old niece Lexi and her toddler son.

After living out his own rock-n-roll dreams, Rico Suave went to work behind the scenes, becoming one of Interscope Records' most valuable A&R executives and credited with bringing fellow Latin singer Enrique Iglesias and others into the mainstream. But reconciling a rock star past with modern parenting isn't easy, as Gerardo and Kathy have discovered with kids who want to follow in their father's famous footsteps. Add to that Kathy's inclination to be a best friend to her daughters, and home life for the Mejias is never easy, even when it's suave.

"Suave Says" is executive produced by Edward Paige and Liane Su for Blank Paige Productions. VH1 executive producers are Susan Levison, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly and Fernando Mills.
