    oops, forgot to say this is an article that was going around abt the fakeness of flavor of love.

    The scenario is that the show was concocted to appear to be some sort of dating show, but the "contestants" signed up for something entirely different. The girls on the show signed up for more of an "acting contest".

    The concept, initially proposed by William Drayton aka 'Flava Flav', was to have a show which would appear to the viewers to be a 'dating contest', but in reality would be an competition to find a suitable 'match' for a money desperate Drayton after Brigitte Nielson declined to appear in another season of VH1's "Strange Love".

    The winner would be the woman who could best 'act like' Drayton's perfect other. Someone with antics bizarre enough to hold the interest of the viewers, and who could also feign love for the virtually unlikable Drayton.

    In layman's terms: A group of young (and not so young) Hollywood fringe hopefuls signed contracts to appear on a televised acting contest, vying for the coveted position of phony reality show 'girlfriend' to 'Flava Flav'. The prize included a guaranteed reality show (Strange Love) and monetary compensation.

    The long and short of it: "Flavor of Love" is the WWF of dating shows.

    To further perpetuate the absolute ridiculousness is their choice of thespians to play "New York" and family. Surprise! No, they're not related. No, Mr. 'New York' is not the owner of a fortune 500 company. (If you were foolish enough to believe this you likely need your head checked...what millionaire, country club thoroughbred has as uneducated, filthy and tragically cheap a child and as deranged and unkempt a wife as he has on the show?)

    Miss 'New York' is actually Kenya Simmons of Newark New Jersey. Never heard of her? Well, it's not likely that you would have.

    Simmons, a former exotic dancer, has shown up to many a reality show castings. (I work for Fox). To add hilarity to the stew, she was rejected thrice by "The Bachelor".

    Simmons is not the only television hopeful who has shown her face at numerous open call castings.

    The actress (and I use that term loosely) who plays "Mrs. Michelle", New York's mother, Leslie Bibbs, is not only of no relation to Simmons, but once stood in the same cattle call line with her at an open call for a B.E.T reality show.

    Another amazing tidbit: Bibbs and Simmons are only 5 years apart in age.

    I've never heard much about the actor playing Mr. New York, but my friend seems to think he works at VH1.

    I thought "New York" already had a job working on her back. It definitely would be a recession proof job.

    Re: New York Goes To Work

    VH1 put up a supertrailer, which isn't much because NYGTW will be filmed week-to-week...but here is what she hates:

    Animals (Pig farmer)
    Smelly things (Sewer worker)
    Insects (Exterminator)
    Getting her hands dirty (Dairy farmer)
    Kids (Clown)

    You didn't hear any of those guys complaining on I love NY about the dirty job of kissing that toad for the purpose of the show, so she should do whatever is asked of her quietly and collect her overinflated earnings of $5000.

    Re: New York Goes To Work

    Okay so the first three jobs for New York:
    Ranch Hand
    Baker
    Exterminator

    VH1 is really, really pushing for Ranch Hand.

    New York should get a "real job" and get off the TV screen Pronto.

    I would hope that this would teach her to have some respect for the "dirty" jobs out there...maybe get her that "on the job" experience. Who knows, she might even find a real job after all of this! But, more than likely, we'll get I Love New York 2.

    Re: New York Goes To Work

    She will be earning $10,000 per successful job? Ridiculous! Initially I thought it was $5000 but saw an extended commercial last night and learned it was actually $10,000.

    I have no confidence that MTV will even count these votes, and instead will pick whatever job they think will be most entertaining.

    While I think the payout would be overinflated no matter who they got to do it, I will admit my distaste for New York plays a factor in my hating the reward for this show
