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.

Super Skank Wednesday: Epigrams, a discussion

by Kristin Sample, posted Feb 20th 2008 2:00PM
Yay for SkanksWelcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: Rock of Love, Flavor of Love, I Love New York (or whatever show Tiffany Pollard is making next), The Surreal Life, and Charm School. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

After the jump I have a look at my favorite quotations from this week's episodes of Flavor of Love 3 and Rock of Love 2. I call it Epigrams, A Discussion. Enjoy Skank-lovers!

Flavor Flav in comic book form

by Julia Ward, posted Dec 24th 2006 9:02PM
Flavor Flav comicI've never had an easy time resolving the two sides of Flavor Flav. On the one hand, you've got Flavor Flav - VH1's resident reality buffoon who single-handedly set off a public debate on 21st Century minstrelsy. On the other, you've got one quarter of seminal hip-hop act Public Enemy - the revolutionaries who dropped "Burn, Hollywood, Burn" on listeners. Public Enemy's debut comic book from American Mule Entertainment doesn't make Flav any less complicated, but it does give us the opportunity to see him deliver a flying sidekick into the face of an enemy combatant.

I Love New York coming; faith in humanity diminishing

I Love New York
VH1's I Love New York (the spin-off of Flavor of Love, which was the spin-off of Strange Love, which was the spin-off of The Surreal Life) is set to debut on Monday, January 8 at 9PM. Kick off the new year with a bit of trashiness! This is the new cast picture of New York (Tiffany Patterson) and her victims lucky bachelors. The flamboyant fellow in pink is the Big Rick to New York's Flavor Flav (so, his job will be to follow New York around and tell her how great she looks). I've already picked my favorite of the bunch... the blond guy in the button-up and khakis. He's in it for the long run, folks!

VH1 milks the Flavor of Love cow dry

Mo'NiqueRecently, I posted about an upcoming Flavor of Love spin-off, entitled The Flavorette (actually, I've been hearing that it may be called I Love New York, so now I'm confused). Well, I come bearing tidings of doom and the decline of civilization as we know it.

VH1's making a show about a bunch of Flavor of Love ladies attending etiquette school. Oh, yes.

Now don't rinse the taste of vomit from your mouth just yet, because... get this... The ever-classy commedienne Mo'Nique will be hosting it.

Rinse now.

Flavor Flav is the busiest man alive

by Annie Wu, posted Oct 31st 2006 11:02AM
Flavor of LoveBarely any time has passed since the dramatic conclusion of the Flavor of Love: Season Two. Only a few weeks ago, we saw New York angrily make her exit, bits of her weave coming dangerously close to exploding with fury, after she got second place... again. Well, even after losing Flav (seriously, is he that great of a catch?), she's gained a lot... in the form of a sweet spin-off deal with VH1 to do her own Bachelorette-style program, The Flavorette. I can't wait to see what kind of man is crazy enough to vie for her attention. By the way, has anyone figured out if New York is a drama queen extreme or just a really bad actress? She remins me of those theater-folk that try to do TV, but forget to leave their exaggerated gestures at the stage door.

As for Flavor Flav, he is still with his Season Two lady, Deelishis. He has a new album on the way. He is also about to become a father for the seventh time. Oh yes. That's right. Some small, tiny being will soon be welcomed into this world with a smack on the bottom and an obnoxiously loud "YEAH BOYEE!". Flav hasn't said who the baby momma is, but she's a "shorty in Vegas". Good lord.

Flavor of Love a huge hit for VH1

by Brett Love, posted Oct 2nd 2006 11:55AM
Flavor FlavVH1 doesn't seem to get as much of the 'they don't play music anymore' criticism as MTV, but I think they are following a very similar track. And that direction is what brought about Flavor of Love. I was surprised to learn that the premiere for season two of the Bachelor spoof drew 3 million viewers. Not only that, but the audience for the season one finale was nearly 6 million. That is the highest rated show in VH1's history.

The NY Times has an interesting article about Flavor Flav and the show. The opinions range from the show being another reality goof to a slap in the face to all people of color. I've always fallen in the spoof camp, putting Flavor of Love in the same category as The Joe Schmo Show. I think Joe Schmo was a better concept. I tuned into Flavor of Love a couple times out of curiosity, but it seemed like the same joke over and over.

See the ladies of Flavor of Love 2

by Annie Wu, posted Jul 12th 2006 7:28PM
Flavor of Love 2The first Flavor of Love was the epitome of trashy TV. Not only is Flav a tremendously annoying person (sir, what happened to your "Fear of a Black Planet" days?), but all of the female contestants looked like they just stepped off the set of Maury or Jerry Springer. I found myself becoming more and more disgusted every week, and yet... I kept tuning in. Yeah, you're good, VH1. You're real good.

I guess enough innocent souls were, like I, sucked into that filthy world of cat fights and cheap weaves because Flavor of Love 2 is ready to start on August 6th. And, no matter how hard I fight it, I know I'll be tuning in. Sigh. See all of Season Two's "lucky" ladies here.

Oh, that reminds me: A few weeks ago, I saw Pumpkin on Family Feud (her family's answers sucked) and then on MTV's dating show Next (she didn't win). She has exquisite taste in television.

Get your spit shields out: The Flavor of Love is coming back!

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 13th 2006 6:40PM
Flavor FlavBoy, VH1 just can't get enough of Flavor Flav, can it? First he stole The Surreal Life 3, then they brought him back to further explore his oddly fascinating "relationship" with Brigitte Nielson in Strange Love. When that "love" went kerfluee, they brought Flav back again to find the love of his live on The Flavor of Love, which featured more hootchie mammas per square foot than any show not named Springer or Maury. It even featured one wronged contestant angrily spitting in the face of another contestant, complete with slo-motion replays and post-game analysis. Classy.

Well, VH1 must like it because they're bringing back The Flavor of Love for a second season. So, if anyone out there had a remaining shred of respect for Flav's accomplishments as one of the frontmen for the iconic rap group Public Enemy, this announcement pretty much killed it.

Flavor of Love: Finale

by Annie Wu, posted Mar 13th 2006 10:42AM
Flavor of LoveWow. Flavor of Love is, quite possibly, the tackiest reality show I have ever seen (please note that this is coming from someone that considers The Surreal Life a guilty pleasure). After one episode, I was completely disgusted by the behavior of these women and of the star himself, Flavor Flav. I learned that Mr. Flav is a horrible judge of character and that scantily-clad women will do absolutely anything for a moment of fame and glory. However, I found that I was unable to pull myself away from the television... even as I had my remote control held out, pointing directly at the TV, my finger already resting on the Off button and my face twisted in disgust. What a train wreck... a gloriously vicious train wreck.
