Check out these ladies from then until now:
Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander: Flava Flav choice Hoopz as his one and only but we definitely knew that was fake as HELL!!

Tiffany “New York” Pollard: Ms. New York made a scene day one of being on Flavor Of Love. Even after he rejected her twice, she finally got her own dating show, “I Love New York,” which pf course didn’t last. New York, New York Goes to Hollywood, and New York Goes to Work, Tiffany has entertained on countless TV shows, such as E!’s Botched, TV One’s The Next :15, VH1’s Family Therapy alongside her mom Sister Patterson, and memorably on the U.K.’s Celebrity Big Brother. You can currently see Tiffany on her new web-series Brunch with Tiffany premiering February 9th on VH1.com. She’s reaching, she’s getting old and she isn’t married, she has to keep those checks coming.

She is also pursuing a post-graduate degree. In 2016, she revealed that her appearance on Flavor Of Love saved her from an abusive relationship.
London “Deelishis” Charles: She was the silent killer, she won Flavor Of Love and she is a hometown girl, Detroit and now she continues to win. Deelishis is the morning host on Radio 1’s Hot 107.5 in Detroit. She is a single mother to two daughters, a frequent Instagrammer, and party host. In 2016, she appeared on the season five finale of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta with Stevie J.
Becky “Buckwild” Johnston: Becky says, “When I went on the show I absolutely wanted to be Flav’s girlfriend. He’s a great guy. Unfortunately, he was already in a relationship at that time, unbeknownst to us all on the show.” Buckwild now works as a manger for a toy store and “loves it,” and keeps fans up to date on her life on her blog BeckyBeLike.com. She and Saaphyri are BFFs.

According to her website she is a self-proclaimed: “producer, global actress, author, vocalist, beauty pro, and techie.” You can also learn how to sport eyelashes like Hottie with a video tutorial you can purchase on her site. In 2017, Hottie told VH1 she wrote a book under her pen name Star Sugarman. Something ain’t right with her still!!
Shay “Buckeey” Johnson: Shay was featured on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta in a love triangle alongside rapper Scrappy. Shay says, “The most memorable moment for me was when I was eliminated only because it was unexpected. I really felt that my connection with Flav was bigger than the incident I was eliminated for.” Shay has started her own hairline Shay J Bliss (a proceed of which go to a Breast Cancer Foundation each year) and a fitness line.
Saaphyri Windsor: Saaphyri created a unisex lip balm called Lip Chap but then she served jail time for identity theft. She was released in 2010. She said, “my feelings were very genuine for Flav. I believe we would have definitely become serious had I stayed in the house longer.” Saaphyri most recently appeared on E!’s Botched to have her breast job corrected and says she’s best friends with Buckwild who’s garage she uses for storage.

I can’t believe these women really believed this was a dating show with a man who could never brush his teeth. He had gold teeth and he reminds me of a little black ant, I wouldn’t care how much money he had, he was a mess then and more of a mess now.
Just watching these episodes brings you back to Pumpkin spit in New York’s face, when Hottie tried to cook a whole chicken in the microwave, when New York gave her millions on millions of temper tantrums, it was just so many epic situations!! Thanks VH-1 for bringing it all back!!
Queen Sugar Finale
Queen Sugar Finale aired and it left us with a lot of questions and that’s the way a show should end. One of the best drama series on tv right now, hate the season ended but it gives us a reason to get ready for next season!!
Nova is sitting with her reporter friend at the farmhouse while her friend interviews one of the farmers that works at the farm. Darla shows up; she wants to get some of her things from inside the house, but Nova isn’t having it, she already doesn’t trust Darla, and can’t understand why she never told anyone the truth about Blue, and why she would tell now? Darla held on to this secret for 7 years. Darla tries to explains her lies, she chose what she thought was best for Blue, but Nova tells her; she chose lies, not what was best.
Charley is so mad at the Landry’s, they are affecting her mill and her money, she confronts Jacob Boudreaux, who admits he has been worried about Charley’s next game plan. He admits to spreading rumors about her farm. He wants Charley, he is intrigued by her, he begins to flirt with her and she is just playing a game.
Another farmer lets Ralph Angel know they can’t work with the Queen Sugar mill anymore; they’re nervous about all the rumors. At the mill, Charley is on the phone trying to save her mill but the owners are worried about the rumors and the machinery at the mill isn’t working properly, but those are lies coming from the Landry’s.
Hollywood receives a phone call from the lawyer from the rig lawsuit, who tells him that the company settled for triple the amount they originally thought they would. Hollywood screams to V that they are now rich. Hollywood is the type of person who will share his money with the world.
Ralph Angel confronts Darla about her lies and she tells him she couldn’t remember who she slept with at that time and she did what she thought was best for Blue. Ralph Angel tells Darla they are over, he can’t trust her at all but he will always be Blue’s father. He then picks Blue up from Aunt V, Blue was sleep but he woke up once he saw his face and asked his pop where has he been? Ralph Angel explained to him it was harvest time and he told Blue how he got his name.
I love the relationship Ralph Angel and Blue have, he loves his pop, to take him away would break Ralph Angel’s heart and tear Blue up.
Empire has returned and I am so happy, this episode didn’t disappoint but the last few were a disappointment. So how does Lucious go from not remembering his past and not walking to walking and remembering more of his past every day? I am so confused but this episode was definitely entertaining.
Hakeem and Anika are in family court fighting each other for full custody of baby Bella. I must say, Hakeem stepped up to the plate to be the best father he could be and now he’s fighting Anika for his daughter. The morning of the hearing, of course Hakeem has his family in court with him as well as Tiana.
The courtroom is full of vultures, who will do whatever it takes to get the next story to sell, they have cameras and picket signs in the court room. This female judge wasn’t playing with anybody and she seems like a tough judge. I didn’t know Angelo was an attorney, I thought his cousin was the attorney but I guess not because he is Anika’s attorney and everyone knows that he is only trying to get back at Cookie for humiliating him. Angelo gives his opening argument, the judge sends best wishes to his mother.
Angelo goes all the way in on the Lyons and praises Anika when he doesn’t even know her. Does the judge know that Anika killed her future son in laws baby by pushing her off the balcony? Anika is very sneaky, she always has a trick bag with her and this makes no difference. While Angelo praises Anika, he doesn’t praise Hakeem, he talked about his drug and sex parties. Angelo calls The Lyons criminals and thugs, he says they are not in a position to have baby Bella with them at all. Anika did do time, her skeletons came out in court and she was still able to get full custody of her daughter.
Hakeem is definitely worried about his baby, Angelo calls Cookie to the stand, and prison comes up. Cookie is smart, her street smartness gives her game, she knew how to handle herself in court. She talks about Hakeem and how he’s a wonderful father to his daughter, the kind of parent she wanted to be but couldn’t. Angelo brings up the fight between Anika and Cookie, calling Cookie violent but never saying anything bad about Anika. At one point in her life Anika was going to kill herself and she asked Cookie to take care of Bella. All of a sudden whack a$$ Angelo brings up that Cookie had thugs beat him up.
Lucious is back, the real Lucious but I’m still not convinced that he ever lost his memory, I believe he was just playing his part. Lucious decides he wants to testify and he gets that chance, when Angelo asks Lucious about his past as “the scariest man in music,” Lucious claims he can’t remember due to his memory loss. Lucious loves Bella and all the memories she’s given him, because of Bella, he wants to try and change his ways for the best!
Hakeem, decides to fire his lawyer and speak for himself, he really didn’t have a legitimate reason as to why he fired him but he did and that was that. He gets Anika on the stand asking personal questions about Bella. Then Hakeem reminds her that his door was always open; he wanted her to get to know Bella, but she had to file this custody suit on him.
Mrs. DuBois has returned just in time to throw Hakeem under the bus, she gets on the stand and talks about how she finds Hakeem a very pleasant young man, which she knows because he’s spent every Tuesday afternoon with her for the past five months. The look on Cookie’s face was priceless. Mrs. Dubois also videotaped their meetings, he betrayed his family when he says terrible, damning things about every single member of his family: Jamal has his pills, Andre has his illness, he also says Andre’s baby dying was “probably for the best”, Hakeem wishes Cookie was still in jail, and Lucious is a monster.
Of course the judge rules and gives Anika full custody of baby Bella. Hakeem is devastated, the entire Lyon family is hurting for Hakeem and Bella.
