Flavor Of Love Girls!! Where Are They Now??
Flavor Of Love Girls!! Where are they now? We have gathered the ten women of Flava Flav’s reality show who made a statement back then and some of these girls are still causing commotion. Who would have ever thought Flava Flav’s show would be hit? VH-1 is airing 14 days of love and going back in time and re-running Flavor Of Love!!
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!! After she won, Hoopz started an on-again, off-again relationship with basketball player Shaquille O’Neal. Hoopz’s public breakup with Shaq was documented on her new docu-series “It Takes A Sister,” on Oxygen which sucked. Now, Hoopz is going strong with her fitness line, Hoopz Fit and her boutique Heaven On Earth in Tennessee.
Larissa “Bootz” Aurora: Bootz says she is now divorced and raising her children in Las Vegas as a single mother. “I am collecting my checks, going to school to get a degree in business,” Bootz continued, “What people don’t know is I was in a car accident two and and a 1/2 years ago so I have not been able to continue my position as a reality personality because of injuries and legal reasons.” Yeah, her checks would get cut but I don’t recall her on any other reality shows though.
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.
Leilene “Smiley” Ondrade: Smiley has continued acting, modeling, and mostly producing since her days on reality TV. A single mother, she manages her daughter’s aspiring singing career now. 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.
Schatar “Hottie” Sapphira: She is now married and a mom, whoever married her, I’m sure he is regretting it. 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.
Brooke “Pumkin” Thompson: Her appearances on Flavor of Love, Charm School and I Love Money Pumkin appeared in a Playboy Channel soft core film. Brooke has all but disappeared from social media but in 2016, she now works at an accounting firm in Bakersfield, CA and is single with no children.
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!!
