Whether or not this season sports a bigger bevy (definition) of beauties, I can't get past the following facts:
- For all of their cat fighting; spitting, dishonesty, psychodrama, significant other drama, mama drama, bare chested mud wrestling, throw-down whorishness, brazen gold digging, I'll-take-you-out (and not on a date) behavior, and Pumkin's [sic] ignorance of Public Enemy's music (Flav is the group's hype man) and African American slang, not one of the 20 members of Flav's original harem warranted headlines like this, "RealityBlurred - Flavor of Love 2 debuts Sunday, and one woman 'shits on my floor,' Flavor says."
- And they waited until AFTER episode one to incur press like this: "YouTube - Flavor Of Love (season 2) first fight."
Full disclosure requires acknowledging that: in season 1, Episode 1: Fifteen Beds and a Bucket of Puke, Goldie drank too much champagne but escaped elimination; and in season 1, Episode 2: Rub a Dub Flav, fur flew between New York and Pumkin [sic].
No doubt, season 2 of VH1's The Flavor of Love should meet or exceed the popularity record set by season 1. As I discussed in "Lisa Tolliver On Air and Online - Lettin' you know what time it is: Flav postpones April 26 Lisa Tolliver Show appearance until June to promote new project," Flavor of Love 1 was VH1's highest-rated show ever.
Access Flavor of Love - The Complete First Season on DVD featuring the unrated version of the show, the Reunion Special, Flav's Filosophies and Pumkin's [sic] Blac-u-cation.
The Flavor of Love 2 appetizers also included promotional trailers. These teasers were peppered throughout yesterday's marathon of season 1 reruns. The resulting viewing experience was akin to gorging at a multi-course sit-down spread that would please both Jack and Mrs. Spratt*. The spread featured bawdy entertainment; a succession of naughty, but nice-to-look-at, multicultural offerings; and service that was regularly interrupted by samplings of the coarser, greasier fare to be served at an upcoming feeding frenzy.
* "Jack Spratt" is title and subject of this Mother Goose rhyme:
Jack Spratt could eat no fat. His wife would eat no lean. And so you see, betwixt them both they licked the platter clean. - Author anonymous
Throughout season 1, the behavior of most The Flavor of Love cast members (except Flav's towering, coolly distant major domo/chauffeur, Big Rick) became increasingly extreme - extremely antisocial, extremely brazen, extremely competitive, extremely desperate, extremely dysfunctional, extremely exploitative, extremely pathetic, extremely unseemly, extremely violent, and extremely vulgar (not necessarily in that order) - bringing to mind this line from Purlie Victorious:
"How low can you git, Gitlow?"
