Do y’all remember the show Flavor of Love? It aired on VH1 from 2006 to 2008. It was reality TV trash at its finest (or worst, depending on your taste in TV).
In Flavor of Love, 20 women competed for the affections of Flavor Flav, Public Enemy’s legendary hype man. Yes, back in the day, women actually competed to have sex with Flavor Flav. The decade after 9/11 was a dark time, y’all.
Flavor of Love was not Flavor Flav’s first reality show. In fact, Flavor of Love was a result of the reality show Strange Love, which depicted Brigitte Nielsen and Flavor Flav’s failed romantic relationship. (We told you that the Aughts were a weird time.) Click next to read more.
Some of the women, like Tiffany “New York” Pollard, were able to jumpstart a bit of a media career from the. . . er . . . exposure they got on this show. But do you really want to be known as the woman who took a white girl’s spit to her face over Flavor Flav? We sure wouldn’t.
