"They can't be serious," I thought, when I first saw VH1's I Love New York, Season 2 casting call scroll across my TV screen. I was flipping back and forth between Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School and Bravo TV at the time.
By "they," I meant both VH1 and Miss Tiffany "New York" Pollard/Patterson. After all, look at what happened at the I Love New York 1 reunion and what Miss New York said about it.
But they were. Serious that is.
In fact, here's the I Love New York 2 casting notice, verbatim:
HEY MY FELLOW SEXY SINGLE MEN. YES IT’S OFFICIAL I’M CASTING SEASON 2 OF “I LOVE NEW YORK”. I’M CASTING ALL TYPES AND ETHNIC BACKGROUNDS. MY BREAKDOWN IS THIS AND PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT UNLESS YOU FIT THE BREAKDOWN AND FOLLOW SUBMISSION
STRAIGHT MEN AGES-21 TO 36
Tiffany / Miss New York won't be a June bride (this year, at least), but she and VH1's I Love New York 2 suits and crew will be busy this July. Viewers are invited to pitch in, too, by helping to select five cast members.
Any sincerity professed by I Love New York 2 participatants would be as fishy as that of Tango on I Love New York 1, of Hoopz on The Flavor of Love 1 or of Flavor Flav to any of the Flavor of Love contestants who thought he was really looking for love in seasons 1 and 2.###
