Bootz gave the world a gift when she introduced the phrase, "If I was a hoe, I'd be a top-dollar hoe," into public consciousness. After the jump, America's favorite celibate reality-show star dishes the dirt on her time on the show.
Was this show a good experience for you?
Yeah, it was a good experience, but I think it was unfair the way the eliminations went and the reasoning for everyone getting eliminated.
Do you think the celibacy had anything to do with it? Flav did say that it was killing him that you wouldn't give it up till marriage.
I don't believe that. I think that Flav could have sex with anybody he wanted to have sex with. If I was to win the show, anyway, he would be messing with other women, 'cause he told me. So I asked, "Are you going to be having sex with anybody and everybody?" and he told me, "When I'm done with you, I'm done with you." He's just into having sex with whoever and I think Krazy gave it up and, of course, New York gave it up. I don't know about Deelishis, but I think that's another factor – they're giving it up and I'm not.
How long before the show did you decide to be celibate?
Guys use women for what they have, like Flav did. Well, not with me, but I thought Flav was different. I just don't like guys that use girls and think that having sex is everything, and I thought Flav would be different. So I took the opportunity to get to know him and I found out that he isn't any different.
Are you still celibate?
Um…I have a boyfriend now. And I'm not anymore.
So the "…till marriage" clause of your celibacy no longer matters?
Well, this person I am going to marry. I've known him for nine years.
Bootz, your personality is so fiery, it was almost intimidating to call you.
No! I'm very nice. It's just when someone's trying to do harm towards me, that's when I get upset. You have to do something to me. That's reason that I had a problem with New York. People may think, "Oh, that's New York." New York was not acting like that in the house. It's like, you claim you're the realest, but I don't remember her saying the stuff she said to her face like it looks. Like when she said, "I'm the H.B.I.C.," she never said that to me. And the stuff she said in the little confessional? She's lying. She's talking s*** about us, but she never told me to my face. That's the type of things that make me mad.
She did get you to apologize…
I said, "No, I'm not going to apologize to you because I feel like you disrespected me." New York said, "You know that I'm picking the Top 3 girls to get their clocks, but I'm not going to pick you. If you do apologize, you'll get your clock." She did have control of eliminations. They didn't air it that way, but she did give me my clock because I apologized. The way they showed it was that I apologized and I was just a sucker or whatever. But New York did give me my clock because I did apologize. She told me she would and that's how it happened. I really played New York – I didn't even mean that apology and she still gave me my clock.
So, was New York as difficult as she seems on the show?
I think New York was obnoxious, but she was intimidated by our group because she knew that it would be hard for her. Basically, the way she went off on Krazy, she knew she couldn't do that with me because it would be a whole different situation. I think that she took precautions in doing what she had to do. The reason I got eliminated was because of New York, but not in the sense of, oh New York got Bootz out. The way she got me out was crying her way out of the room when she had dinner, talking 'bout, "Oh Flav, I haven't had my alone time," to take Flav away from me and to focus on her. That's how I got eliminated. So she took her plan and used it on Flav because there was no way she could have me in her clutches like she had Krazy.
And she was even trying to get on your good side during the date at the winery, right?
Yes, she was. She thought I was stupid and was just going to tell her everything like Krazy. The things that I did tell her were about the other girls. She knew nothing about me.
You were tight with Buckeey and Deelishis, right?
Yes. I feel like all the other girls that I did not get along with was for a reason. Like Krazy. She lied in front of New York and said, "I can't see him get his heart broken," but she was still on the show. She knew dang well she was on the show for a singing career. Krazy thinks people are jealous of her. I'm not jealous of Krazy. She's a pretty girl or whatever, but she cannot sing to me. If you can't sing, you can't sing and to me Krazy was just very, very naïve. She tried to put her beauty in front of her brains and she tried to make it seem like she's so pretty, which she's not to me, she's just any other girl. Yes, she's pretty, but I'm pretty also and I think Buckeey is and Deelishis is, too. Krazy's not anything special. I think that because she was the only non-African American left, she tried to take advantage of that, knowing that Flav liked that.
So, I don't know Bootz, with all this said, it doesn't really seem like this was a good experience for you, like you said at the start of the interview.
It was a good experience because I got to meet a lot of different girls. That's what I mean by good experience. And I learned things about how girls are. I learned that girls are gonna be girls. Girls in real life act just like those girls on that show.
What's next for you?
Well, I can't really discuss it, but there are a lot of things coming up that people can look out for. I'll tell it when I can tell it.
