Getting to know New York

Nyhol_2

Though we've watched her grow for two seasons of Flavor of Love, New York remains a woman of mystery. Where did she grow up? What's her most prized possession? If she were an animal, what would she be? Since she's now the star of her own dating show, it's time to find out. Using speed-dating questions devised by Futurescopes.com (what better way, after all, to get to know the modern woman?) and a few of our own, we probed deep into the psyche of New York. The results may shock you.

Where did you grow up?

In Upstate New York – Newhartford, NY and Utica, NY. I lived there for a big chunk of my life – the chunk where I was too young to branch out on my own.

Before Flavor of Love, what did you do?

I was a buyer with my good friend of many years, maybe 8 or 9. He owns his own store and I had stock in it. He trusted me to go on trips with him and pick out the latest fashions because I have such good style.

When was your last relationship and how long did it last?

My last real relationship ended two years ago and it lasted for a really long time. A really, really long time.

What are you looking for in a relationship?

It's pretty simple. I look for honesty, a great sense of humor and someone that can understand that I'm not going to be perfect all the time. I'm gonna have my days when I get up and am crazy and scatterbrained.

Do you have a "type?"

Nobody's gonna believe this, but there's no one physical type. As long as he's hitting me mentally and emotionally, I don't care if he looks like the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Do you ever want to be married?

Absolutely. I think that one day, probably not soon, but yeah, I wanna be married one day so I can see how it feels…and so I can cut the cake. I just want to cut that big six-foot wedding cake.

Do you want children?

Yes. I know that I want three – two boys and one little princess. But not for a while. My 20's, they're for me. So I'd have to say some time in my 30's.

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Absolutely. It has never happened to me, but maybe it will.

What are your turn-ons?

Someone with great, fresh breath. Someone who can pick a great cologne, like a Calvin Klein. Someone that has a great smell to him. Clean socks – you can always tell how clean a man's underwear are if you tell him to take off his shoes and his socks are clean.

Turn-offs?

Everything opposite of what I just said. I hate bad breath. And shoes – a few scuff marks are OK, but if your shoes are turning up and they look all distraught and looking sad, it's time to move on. You can't have any stains on your clothes. Pimples, that type of thing. You just gotta be groomed.

How important is sexual compatibility to you?

It's very important. It's never about size, it's always about the mental connection first and the physical connection second.

Boxers or briefs?

Oh my gosh, you better give me a man who has to wear boxers, because briefs are too tight for his ass!

What are you most proud of?

I'm most proud of the fact that I don't have a record. I've never had a run-in with the law. I get along great with my family and I have a good sense of values.

Is religion important to you?

Absolutely. I grew up in the church. I have strayed, but religion is still very important.

What about politics?

Hell no, I don't follow them. That s*** is mad boring.

What's your most treasured possession?

You probably won't understand it, but I love being a woman. I would have to say my most treasured possession is my vagina.

Do you like animals?

I love animals. I have a beautiful cat named Baby Lovingly. I found her outside, she was scratching really hard for food about four years ago. She's all black and has the most beautiful green eyes you'll ever see. And I have a Chihuahua and her name is Your Majesty.

If you were an animal, what would you be?

I'd have to be a cheetah. They're long, they're sleek, they're sexy and they can get away at the drop of a dime. I could do my dirt and then run from it real quick.

Do you cook?

Yes, I do. I take pride in my cooking.

If you had friends coming over for a dinner party, what would you serve?

Lobster artichoke dip. Chicken Cordon Bleu. Biscuits from scratch.

What makes you laugh the hardest?

I love to see fights. Fist fights and action movies – things where people get blown up and stomped out by gangs. That makes me crack up the hardest.

What makes you cry?

When I can't get my way, I'm crying.

Are you a morning person or a night person?

I'm so a night person. I'm so nocturnal.

Who are your favorite musicians?

Jay-Z, India.Arie, the Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep and right now, I love John Legend and Alicia Keys.

Favorite movie?

The classic, original version of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Favorite TV show?

The Twilight Zone.

Favorite book?

I don't know, I don't do that much reading. My favorite magazine is Us Weekly.

Favorite drink?

Vodka and Red Bull.

Favorite food?

Fresh French fries.

Favorite designer?

Michael Kors.

Menthol cigarettes or regular?

Menthols.

Favorite vacation spot?

Anywhere where the climate is too hot for a black woman, that's my favorite spot.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I see myself extremely wealthy, loving life and being bad…but good!

You have six months left to live: what do you do?

I would clear out my bank account and go shopping fabulously – Rodeo Drive, Fifth Ave., all that stuff. I would go to some people's houses that have done me wrong and beat their asses. I would apologize to the people I need to apologize to. I would get right with God…oh, I would have sex, too!

hey newyork i love your show .i wonder if chance is going to be your boyfriend. you go girl.

Lillian

Listen NY, I want to give you some real good advice. I've dated a guy like Tango and he is fake. Chance is the truth. I am an earth sign just like you and I'm telling you...we need people like Chance to get us connected with the part of us thats too scared to do anything and live a little edgy...

inky

new york u are so blind u couldnt see what was right in your face. u should have picked real because he was real and he seems to be an affectionate person.i would love for a man to be that loving towards me.maybe he would have been rough in the bedroom if u would have given him a chance and not chance.ive seen his type before and they beat.

The Mrs.

I see a lot of haters posting comments about New York. I loved, "The Flava of Love," and I love watching, "I love New York." New York is what made these shows more interesting. She's what made people want to tune in every week. No matter what she says or does, I like her. So to New York, Forget about all that haterism, and keep doing what you do. What you do, is what makes you, you. Obviously you're doing something right. Keep making that cheddar girl. Can't nobody do it like Miss New York!!!!

TO NEW YORK AND YOU HATERS:
1. IF YOU HATE N.Y. SO MUCH, WHY ARE YOU ALL UP ON SITE READING HER INTERVIEWS(YOU LOVE IT)
2. YOU HATE ON N.Y. ACTING LIKE YOU GOT IT ALL TOGETHER(IF U WATCH REALITY T.V.-YOU DONT GOT IT TOGETHER)
3. NEW YORK IS A HUMAN BEING, AND SHE GOES THROUGH WHAT EVERYONE ELSE DOES TOO, YOU MIGHT ACT A LITTLE OUT THERE TOO IF YOU HAD CAMREAS ON YOU 24/7.
4. AT LEAST N.Y. IS HERSELF. MOST PEOPLE CAN NOT COP TO THE FACT THAT THEY ARE HUMAN AND SHE DOES
5. THE PEOPLE ON THIS SITE, THAT ARE HATIN ON NEW YORK AND SAYIN HOW HORRIBLE AND MEAN AND UGLY SHE IS, ALL OF YOU ARE JUST MAD BECAUSE SHE'S GOT IT LIKE THAT. THE MEN ON THAT SHOW COULD HAVE LEFT IF THEY DIDNT LIKE IT.

I enjoyed the show, but that is all that it is, Miss Tiffany, I know you are more than what is being portrayed on these shows. Thru the haze I saw a beautiful self reliant woman, and it concerns me as to how our beautiful black men and women are being portrayed on TV

Von Ford

Hey New York it's me. Yeah I REALLY love you (as a person.) When I first saw you I was like wow. You are in your twenties and you act like that. I am fifteen and I've done like half the things that you have done. You are an inspiration. You should Adopt me. ( I live in a group home.)


Gotta Go BYE

Charles W. Gray

It is really depressing that this kind of dribble is even allowed on the airwaves! Reality TV at its Lowest! It does not surprise me that people who look upon America feel the negativity they feel. An un-attractive personality in all ways Tiffany (NY) and her mother are an insult to all progressive Afro-Americans! An the fact that VH1 and the American public watch this nonsense says alot about how the human race is are de-evolving. Enjoy your 15 and go away!

vanessa

hi new york am your bigist fan i watch all of your shows i never miss any any way i wantted to tell u to pick me for your interview i really like to meat you love ya girl
