Flavor Flav

Flavor Flav Was Terrified After Rear-Ending Ice-T's Ferrari (VIDEO)

Flavor Flav, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Certain rap artists have done such a masterful job of owning their stage persona that it slips into their personal lives, and can even impact others in their industry. That's why Flavor Flav said on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) that he was terrified when he rear-ended Ice-T's Ferrari.

It happened years ago, long before Ice-T played a cop on television and was instead a force to be reckoned with on the mic. They were on their way to lunch at Red Lobster, when Flav got distracted in traffic. He was talking to a buddy in the backseat and assumed traffic had moved, so hit the gas without looking.

He was stunned at the time when Ice-T not only took the accident in stride, but still treated him and his friends to lunch. Oddly enough, Flav said he still has the tail light from Ice-T's car at his mother's house. Talk about an odd memento.

Flavor Flav and Wendy Williams Compete to Get a Word in Edgewise (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted May 25th 2011 9:30PM
Flavor Flav on 'The Wendy Williams Show'Wendy Williams had Flavor Flav as a guest on Wednesday's 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated) and the talkative celebrity took over the show.

"You suck up all the oxygen out the room and nobody can get a word in edgewise," she said to him. But she was determined to get a word in, telling Flav, "You are going to let me talk." It was an odd sort of interview, with laughter, tears, hugs, and special gifts.

Flav taunted Williams, saying, "I've seen your beach photos." When Williams took mock offense, Flav dived at her and embraced her. Later Williams said that she thought he was one of the youngest looking fifty-somethings she knew (along with Ralph Macchio), then gave him a giant clock necklace with her photo on it.

That way Flav can better time his interruptions.

Flavor Flav Cooks His New Restaurant's Special Fried Chicken on 'Kimmel' (VIDEO)

Flavor Flav Fries Chicken on 'Jimmy Kimmel'Flavor Flav opened his own restaurant -- Flav's Fried Chicken -- in Clinton, Iowa, last month. The rapper, who has a culinary degree and restaurant experience, appeared on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) to show the host how it's done. His secret recipe includes "Flavor Flav crystals."

Kimmel quipped, "Is that legal? We're not cooking up methamphetamines or something, are we?" The pair seasoned raw chicken with the secret spices upon Flav's instruction to "make love to the meat, man."

Kimmel then kindly gave the restauranteur a more personalized chef's hat -- with the rapper's favored viking horns attached.

Best TV of the '00s: Trashy Reality

by Michael Pascua, posted Jan 1st 2010 2:02PM
The season five cast of The Surreal LifeMore of our best of the decade coverage, which started on Tuesday. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about the cheesiest in reality from the decade. And there was a lot of cheesy going around.

The turn of the millennium was the point when television networks were watching the rise of Survivor, The Amazing Race, and American Idol and thought, "I can do that!" What they didn't realize was that to maintain a high quality level, they still needed a big budget.

Instead of monetary prizes, networks turned to things like love, the experience, and the belief of fifteen minutes of fame to entice people to participate. Slowly with the help of networks like Fox, E!, and VH1, reality shows got more classless and turned trashy. Like a car accident, viewers can't stop watching. The decade has provided a countless number of trashy reality shows and here is TV Squad's favorites of the decade.

Best TV of the '00s: Celebrities

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 30th 2009 2:02PM

More of our best of the decade coverage, which started on Tuesday. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about a very aught-like phenomenon: the cult of celebrity.

There is no clearer metaphor for the concept of being a celebrity than the Hollywood Walk of Fame. You work hard to chase your dream and achieve a career for yourself by making your name known to the masses of the universe.

Then when you've grabbed that star and become a regular fixture in the flash bulb of the press' cameras, how does the public honor your tireless toil and efforts? They throw you down on a sidewalk and walk all over you.

In the Aughts, however, a new celebrity oozed out of the primordial muck. A celebrity that still suffered the slings and arrows of the tabloid press and a complete loss of the right to privacy, but achieved their stardom by simply cutting out all that pesky hard work and tireless effort nonsense. These are the celebrities who became famous by simply because they were famous.

Best TV of the '00s: Reality Participant / Contestant

the osbourne familyMore of our best of the decade coverage, which started earlier today. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about our favorite reality contestants and participants.

Whether we like it or not, the '00s introduced us to a new form of celebrity: the reality star. In previous decades, the closest we got to this were especially entrancing personalities from MTV's Real World. These people gained fame for acting like well-crafted exaggerations of their real selves.

Faster than you can say, "I didn't come here to make friends," networks picked up on the public's fascination with reality TV like Survivor and they pushed it to the popularity that it has reached today. Now, reality shows barely reflect what happens in normal people's lives but are generally more like high-concept game shows or extremely scripted improvs. But people keep watching, because the personalities are big and captivating.

Yup. Strategic footage editing does wonders. Here are some of our personal favorites from the genre, but feel free to comment with your own worthy additions!

Review: Aqua Teen Hunger Force - A PE Christmas (season premiere)

Master Shake
(S07E01) "Larger point: listeners ain't gonna know until they've already paid for the album!" - Shake

Those words, spoken by Master Shake, while recording his Christmas album with Meatwad, were intended to be a jab at consumers -- our Christmas album sucks but you won't figure that out until we have your money. On the contrary, the album (aptly titled "Have Yourself a Meaty Little Christmas") is an absolute goldmine of comical music hits for fans of the show.

However, last night's companion episode was anything but that. Paling in comparison to classic ATHF X-mas fare (like "Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past From the Future"), "A PE Christmas" could have truly captilized on the idea of Shake making Christmas music, but instead never took the idea far enough.

Television is getting more Flavor Flav

by Brad Trechak, posted Oct 1st 2009 3:30PM
Flavor FlavFlavor of Love, quite possibly the trashiest celebrity hook-up show of all time, is still off the air. However, its star Flavor Flav is returning to television in order to go back to high school.

If Flavor Flav really wanted to get his high school diploma, why does he need cameras on him to do it? Can't he just study and take the G.E.D.? What type of high school will he attend, public or private?

If he went to a public school, he'd be mobbed between every class due to his celebrity. Having him go to a private school might be better and would admittedly be funnier, but somehow I question if he could handle the coursework (of course, he has enough money to pay other people to go to class for him).

Somehow I see Flav being more like one of those students that smokes out back and tries to make it with one of the cheerleaders. After Flavor of Love, would you want your daughter to go to the same high school as Flav?

Why does that reality show contestant look so familiar? - VIDEO

the amazing race mike whiteJust when you thought everyone you knew, ever, had endured their 15 minutes on some reality show, you've been hoodwinked. It's no longer just the lady in accounts payable who you spotted on Cheaters or your brother's friend whose family appeared on Wife Swap. These days, it's low-profile celebs, too, who are seeking a 16th minute, and no longer exclusively via humiliation on VH1.

It's a parallel universe Twilight Zone, starring Flavor Flav

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 26th 2009 12:02PM
Flavor FlavOne of the first announcements to come out of NATPE is that Flavor Flav will be hosting a television series spin-off of Nite Tales: the Movie on the BET network. I have never seen the movie, but based on its general marketing and plot synopsis, I would peg it as an African-American version of The Twilight Zone.

This would make Flavor Flav into Rod Serling. Flav is a scary-looking person (although he doesn't have Rod's ominous demeanor) so perhaps it's a good piece of casting. There have been a few attempts to revive The Twilight Zone since its inception in the 1950's, including a movie and a couple of television series, and they've meet with less success as time progressed. Having a similar idea with a different name is probably for the best (unless that name is The Outer Limits).

I wonder if any of the contestants from Flavor of Love will have cameos?

Flav lost his virginity at six-years-old?

Flav and his ladiesVH1 is calling this the best interview ever; Flavor Flav of the network's hit franchise Flavor of Love talked to Complex Magazine.

And you won't believe what he said. Here's what you never wanted to know about the rapper-turned-reality-superstar:

1. He made another kid eat dog poop. It was revenge for the kid making Flav eat his own booger.

2. His favorite possession is a Coo-Coo clock from Switzerland. It has a little Flav that comes out and screams "Yeah Boy!" when the big hand strikes three.

The Hills co-star gets his own series

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 10th 2008 9:02AM
Brody JennerLauren Conrad is like the Flavor Flav of MTV. That statement probably needs some explanation. Much like Flav's stardom has spawned spin-off after spin-off (with spin-offs of the spin-offs), LC is shining her light on fellow Hills cast members. First, I reported that Whitney Port is getting her own show and now...

The Hills co-star Brody Jenner is getting his own spin-off called Bromance. The show, brainchild of Ryan Seacrest's company (thanks Seacrest), is a competition where regular guys come to Hollywood for a chance to be in...get this...Brody's entourage. MTV Senior VP of Series Development Liz Gateley says, "Brody is the perfect fit for this concept; he is the type of guy everyone wants to hang out with."

But wait, there's more. In each episode's elimination ceremony, the guys will gather in a hot tub for the news. Furthermore, similar to Rock of Love and Flavor of Love, the guys will participate in various competitions (i.e. skydiving and dealing with the paparazzi), go on group dates, and be rewarded with alone time with Brody.

Flavor of Love: Three's a charm - VIDEO

Flavor Flav and his season one cast. Flavor Flav's search for the right woman will end in Paris next week. Sniffle. Hold on while I wipe the single tear from my eye. After three seasons of Flavor of Love, VH1 has announced that next Monday's show will be Flav's last chance at finding love... well, his last chance on a reality dating show where VH1 casts a bunch of skanks for him to choose from. I'm already planning a Super Skank Wednesday tribute to the glorious Flavor of Love, the show that started it all. (Don't ask me to define what exactly it started. Just know that whatever was started, was started by Flavor of Love.)

The season and series finale of Flavor of Love will air on Monday, May 19th at 9:00 p.m. ET / PT. In the words of Flav (a man never at loss for something pithy to say), the finale is sure to be "dramatical."
I put a clip from the finale after the jump for you enjoyment.
