In a new interview with VH1, Feisty aka Elizabeth Mendez from The Love of Ray J talks about her time on the show. Feisty talks about still working at hooters, what she really thought of Danger, and her connection with Ray J. Below are some highlights from her interview –
How was your time on the show?
I had a great time. For me, it was like vacation. Ray J was awesome. I have nothing bad to say about anybody.
People accused you of going on there just for the party. Fair assessment?
I didn’t go there just to party. I went with an open mind. I wanted to meet Ray. But my time there was like a vacation. I went, I drank, I partied, I had a good time.
Did you have any sort of connection with Ray?
To a certain point. I wouldn’t go as far as to say I’d settle down with him. I felt like he didn’t want to settle down, either. We were attracted to each other physically, we had a good time together and that’s where it ended.
Do you drink as much in real life as you do on TV?
I don’t drink everyday. I’m not an alcoholic or anything. But just to be in that house, you need to drink. You’re not working, you’re there to have fun. It was a special occasion. Whenever we went out, I drank, yes, but so what? So did everybody else. I feel like they made that my character, but everyone else drank as much as me.
What did you think of Unique plying you with alcohol so that you’d get drunk and hopefully eliminated?
Now that I’ve seen the episode and the bonus scenes and I watched what everyone was trying to do…I mean, I don’t have any hard feelings. Whatever. It’s fine. She played the game. But it was f***ed up what she said. I trusted her, and now when I see everything that went on behind my back, I feel stupid for trusting the girls. Now I know for future reference not to trust just anybody. That was my downfall.
Do you still work at Hooters?
Do you like it?
I love working at Hooters. It’s good for me, it’s good for my career. I got third place in the bikini contest and the pageant is coming up and I’m doing the 2010 calendar.
You lived up to your name when you had to box Lil’ Hood. Are you a fighter?
No. I’ve never gotten in a physical fight in my life! I like to talk things out. Normally, I just get along with everybody.
Was there anyone you didn’t like?
The only person I clashed with was Cocktail, since she was a bitch and would talk s***. But I just stayed away from her. I said what I had to say, that she was shady, and I got away. I stayed away from Danger. I thought she was crazy when I met her and then she became even more crazy. That’s why I stayed around Unique: she was the most normal one.
Although she kinda snapped on this week’s episode.
I know! When I saw her snap, I was like, “Girl, what are you doing? You’re embarrassing yourself!” I told her to calm the f*** down. I wish they would have included the scene where Danger climbed the tree. She really did that. She wouldn’t sleep. There was one time when she got in the Jacuzzi with her clothes and mic on. I feel like VH1 is giving her way too much credit. They edit Danger to look like she’s the s***. What the f*** is going on?
So now you’re just pursuing acting and modeling?
Yeah. I want to do another reality show, for sure. I would never do another one fighting for a f***ing guy, though. I’m so over that. I want to do a challenge. Something to better myself or win some s***, you know? And I want to do Playboy.
