Getting to know New York, pt. 2

Gtkny_2

Our discussion with New York continues after the jump, where the dating-show vet talks fame and (be afraid:) her mother.

How has life been since Flavor of Love blew up, on a day-to-day basis? Are you ever mobbed?

There are times when I wake up in the morning and I forget that I am quote-unquote New York. But once I hit the scene and I leave my front door, I am quickly reminded that I am New York. I get mobbed. I get asked to sign underwear. I get asked to sign skin. People don't have paper, they're asking me to sign their flesh. It's crazy, but I love it.

What's the weirdest thing anyone's ever requested?

This woman, in the ladies' room, asked me to pee in her drink so that she could drink it down and be something like me. I'm like, "Lady, are you serious? You have to pay me to do something like that!"

Any harassment ever? Does anyone get aggressive with you, since you're such a divisive character?

Never. The feedback has been 100 percent positive.

How have the men been?

Guys always want to one-up Flav and say they're better, try to prove it. I have to turn them down quickly, because it's not that they want to date me, they just have something to prove. I also think sometimes I intimidate them because they saw my personality on television and how things were between me and Flav.

Any drawbacks to fame that you've seen?

No. I can't remember the last time I paid for a meal or to go through the entrance way of a club. But, a lot of females have been hitting on me since the show and it's a little crazy for me to deal with that. But I'm flattered!

When we last saw your mom, she was storming out of the house during the finale of Flavor of Love 2. She was angry that you chose to stay with Flav instead of leaving with her. What happened between then and now?

When my mom found out I didn't win a second time, she didn't say, "I told you so." She didn't say, "You were silly for staying." All she basically did was outstretch her arms for me to fall into her bosom. She was there for me to pick me up. My mom was there to support me because she knows I'm strong-minded.

And why are you having her on I Love New York?

I value my mom's opinion very strongly when it comes to love.

This is your third time to appear on a television dating show. Do you think of TV as an effective way of finding a mate?

Well, I definitely have to say it is a modern way of meeting someone. You have the Internet that you can use to find love, and now it's readily available on the television. So meeting someone via TV is the norm. It's 2007, so I'm all for it.

Did you ever use the Internet?

Oh, hell no. Guys flock to me. They've always flocked to me and they will continue to flock to me.

New york Im a big fan, i was your fan on flavour of love 1, u r awsome and i just wish u good luck on finding the right guy.

Well first of all I'd like to say that I felt for you when Flav didn't pick you a second time around when obviously, you were one of the very few that wasn't on his show just for the fame but to really be there for him. I think he confused the fact that your attitude got you the status that you've gained since appearing on the show and that you never really asked for that status, it was inevitable with a personality like yours. But if you really want to be happy then you should take your mother's advice when dealing with a lot of these new guys because she has more experience and your best interest at heart. I see you like the thugs and she likes the grown and sexy. You need to pick someone with a little of both, someone who won't bring you down, and someone you won't have to mold for years and years. Girl, the heart is a dangerous thing. Leave that Chance alone, if he'll disrespect your mother than he'll disrespect you too.

Lala

New York, I love your strong mind and personality. I wish you much success in whatever you do. Just keep us entertained and keep us laughing. You are good medicine for me and for the rest who "GET YOU".
Much unconditional love from Connecticut!

Good to see she so close to her mother. Didn't mention the father, though.

Renee

WHAT IN THE WORLD MADE YOU GET BREAST ENLARGEMENTS? YOU ARE SUCH A FAKE THAT I DON'T SEE HOW YOU GOT YOUR OWN TV SHOW. YOU WILL GROW TO REALIZE THAT NOBODY WILL REALLY BE SERIOUS WITH YOU. I GIVE YOUR SHOW MAYBE 1 SEASON. YOU ARE TOO MUCH OF A FAKE AND DRAMA-QUEEN. GOOD LUCK ANY WAY AND PLEASE DON'T ACT LIKE YOU ARE ALL THAT BECAUSE BABY YOU ARE NOT.

ebony

STUTTUN LIKE HER MOTHER, LIKE THAT BOO KEEP IT REAL.

R Nadeau (SP Maine)

Another reality piece of crap !!! I am sooo tired of these so called shows. How about good old fashioned tv where people had talent, and acted. Once these losers finish their embarassments they try to hang on as long as they can to their "fame" - what a joke and what a country we have for even giving these clowns the time of day.

winner

New york need to get a life, this is not the way to find a man.

rach

"Oh, hell no. Guys flock to me. They've always flocked to me and they will continue to flock to me."

Ok New York...first of all if guys ALWAYS FLOCKED TO YOU...then why do you need to go on these TV shows find a man? I think all that confidence and attitude you portray is just a disguise for the immense amount of insecurities you have. You also seem to always contradict your words with your actions...so don't you think its time you give it up?

CoCo Cherree

New York...Im not knocking u for doing what u had to do, to get where you want to be, because u, some how, some way made it this far. On a hope, prayer, nasty attitude & BAD,BAD hair weave. However, I hope you don't have to put your self out there for these 20 different men, like you put it out there for Flav, so quick and easy, if so, it does prove (very much so) that u are so very desperate. Sweetie! Im not sure of how old u are, but u seem to think you know so much about men, U should know by now that a REAL man would not want a FAKE BITCH that will put it out there on National TV for everyone to see. Thats why Flav went with Ms.D., cause' she was real enough to even see through your Bull S--T, & not fall into the web u so tried to weave, should have been tryin' to do something with the one on your head!

Santanta

ur a hoe

Why the hell would VH1 give New York her own show? I felt sorry for her that she got rejected twice on Flavor of Love, but I don't understand why she got her own show! New York listen to me. YOU WILL NEVER FIND THE RIGHT MAN ON TV! At first I thought New York was smart, but I think she is just being stupid by having her own TV show! NEW YORK F*** YOU! YOU STUPID ASS M***********!

Dr. Love

NEW YORK MOE RESPECT N LOVE 2 YOU GAL.IT WAS UGLY FLAV LOST WHEN HE PICKED UGLY ASS,BODY FULL OF SCARS DELICIOUS OVER YOU.I SAW FLAV AT THE BET GRAMMAY AWARDS N I TOLD HIM THAT BUT HE SAID I WAS JUST TRIPPING.ANYWAY,I HOPE YOU FIND THE REAL LOVE NOW,DON'T REALLY GO BY WHAT YO MAMA SAYS,IT'S YOUR DECISION BOO.
