Let's get Toasteee one last time...
After the jump, Flavor of Love's loveable lush talks life after Flav, the porn accusations and why we might have to address her as "Dr. Toasteee" in the future...
Was your Flavor of Love experience positive?
Um, it was an experience (laughs). I wouldn't do it again, but I'm glad I did it.
Why wouldn't you do it again?
If you asked me before this show if I'd ever do a reality show, I would have said, "Hell no." I never thought of myself as that kind of a person. But I'm the kind of person who will try everything once. Twice if I like it. And, you know, not a lot of people can say that they were on VH1's highest-rated show ever. I'm definitely glad I did it. It was a learning experience.
How did you feel about Flav calling you Toasteee?
I thought it was cute, once I figured out what it meant. I had never actually heard that adjective used before to mean "drunk." But it was better than "Somethin'."
Did it fit you? A lot of the girls were drinking that night.
Well, you know, I drank more than anyone else the first night. But does it fit me as a whole person? No. Of course not. I mean, I had to be drunk to be around all those people.
Did they get on your nerves?
Well, it was just, you purposely get a bunch of people with attitudes and strong personalities, and you know everyone has their little thing going on. I wasn't there to make friends the first night, I was there to have fun. And everyone was a little crazy so I had to hit up that liquor cabinet.
It seemed like up until this week's episode, you avoided drama and were pretty peaceful.
Yeah. I've never been in a physical fight in my life. I knew that if I even started trying to say stuff, that would have been a bad idea. Save it for the confessionals.
Do you wish that you hadn't revealed to the other girls what you thought Nibblz did with Flav when you were in bed with them? That led to your departure.
No. I mean, if they were going with the angle that they were trying to kick off someone that had done nude work in the past, I don't know...maybe they were just trying to make me be the example. They could have kicked off anyone.
You denied doing porn…
I still don't think that's porn. I define porn as sex. Or something that I did with a guy. I don't think posing naked is porn. That's why I said to Flav, "Go ahead, go online. Go search your heart out, find something with me and another guy." And he found, you know, a naked picture. If he's gonna say that's porn, he's severely lacking in porn knowledge. So, yeah, I wasn't denying it…
...It was just a matter of definition.
And to say that I was a porn star? Doesn't that imply movies?
But then at the end of the show, you said you were ashamed of this thing you'd done in the past.
It was in the past. I did it four years ago. I'm 22-years-old now. I don't even know how old Flav is, but for him to whip out the picture like that, how immature is that? For me to have done something like that in the past, and for him to just call me a liar, which I wasn't, maybe he could have come up and confronted me, even with the camera's 'cause it's a reality show. But to do it at the elimination ceremony… I have my own modeling agency that I created to help girls and guys find jobs that aren't porn. You know? Because of what I learned in the past.
Do you hold it against Nibblz for telling Flav about your modeling?
I hold it more against Flav. It's a game. Nibblz did what she felt she had to do, I guess. I don't think Flav had to do what he did in that manner.
How rational of you.
It's a game. That's fine. I was pissed at Nibblz for feeling that she had to do it, it was just the way Flav handled it. It was just in poor taste to print out the picture. The whole way it was handled was in very poor taste. Even for Flavor of Love. That's why I was bawling.
It was embarrassing.
It was just…surreal. It was the last thing I was expecting. I thought maybe he'd kick me off but to print the picture out and just tarnish my name like that over something I still believed to be false, it was hurtful.
So did you ever reach a resolution with Flav?
No. I don't need his apology, though it would be nice. I've moved past it all. The only people whose opinions matter to me are my family and friends, and they know the truth.
Have they been watching the show with you?
Oh yeah. I have a party every week. It's fun. We all have fun and laugh and get toasty (laughs).
So, you said the show was a game. What do you think would have happened if you'd gone far enough to win? Would you have shacked up with Flav?
I wouldn't have let myself go that far.
Do you think anyone's really in love with Flav?
Uh…well, Krazy, you know…she talked a lot about it. But I don't know. Everyone had their own agenda. You know, I didn't do it just to be on TV. You know, I just took my MCAT for medical school. This was just something for fun. I'm gonna be a psychiatrist. So, I can analyze all these people.
Paging Dr. Toasteee. Is there anything else on the horizon?
I'm taking some time off right now, traveling and spending time with my family. I'm still working on the modeling agency (Glitterati Models), but that's just for fun. I like to help girls. I'm really involved in the charity RAINN. I give a lot of money to them and volunteer for them.
Well, you seem in good spirits, Toasteee. I'm glad Flav didn't get you down for good.
Maybe we'll do some kind of celebrity battle against each other. I think I could kick his ass. I don't know about the girls in the house, but Flav, I think I could take.
