Below is a short clip of For The Love of Ray J’s behind the scenes reunion footage. Unique claims to be a size 2 in the footage – Umm okay Unique. What were your thoughts on the show?
Chardonnay gave a new interview to VH1 and she covered a lot of things. She talks about her “homie” connection with Ray J, her answers on the lie detector test, plus shockingly denies being a stripper or ever being one which is actually a lie because we have it on good authority that she was once a stripper in Atlanta.
As if her splits and pole climbing on the show were not enough proof, she also admitted to Danger in of the bonus clips on VH1’s website that she is a “dancer.”
Below are some excerpts from her interview -
How was your time on the show?
It was good. It was a learning experience. I didn’t expect it to be exactly like it was with the cameras in your face every second. It was crazy, but it was fun.
What did you think about his assessment that you guys only had a “homey” connection?
He was entitled to his opinion. I respect that, and I respect his decision. We were friends, we are friends and we will forever be friends, basically. I just feel like the situation was misunderstood. I was trying to prove to him that you can have a girl that’s the best of both worlds. They can be your friend, you can go to parties and play basketball together, but you can still have a relationship. I wanted to show him those sides, and I think he might have misunderstood that. But hey, what can I do?
Do you feel like Danger took up his time?
I do, but at the end of the day, it’s a competition. You won’t get your time unless you win dates, and if you don’t win dates, you have to make time in the house. Some girls were more forward than others, but I’m not gonna cling to you and smother you. That’s not me.
What do you think about alcohol defining your character? Was that a fair representation?
I’m not that big of a drinker. If alcohol is there, I’m gonna drink it. What girl would turn down a drink? It’s fun. I’m not an alcoholic, though, and I don’t want to be seen as the alcoholic. Yes, my name is Chardonnay, because that’s my favorite beverage. I don’t drink hard liquor. I like wine. I feel like it’s a classy drink. Throughout the show, yes, I was drinking Chardonnay, but you never saw me drunk. You never saw my head in the toilet and I didn’t get eliminated for being a party girl. So I don’t feel so bad.
You weren’t drunk on the first episode?
I was tipsy! A lady never gets drunk, she gets tipsy.
You were accused of being a stripper. Are you?
No, I am not. That came up on the first episode, and I was like, OK. I didn’t need to explain myself to them. I was not about to prove to them that I’m this or not that. That was none of their business. People can say what they want, but anybody can do a split. A regular person can do a split. If you stretch long enough, you can do a split. Cheerleaders can do a split. It’s not like I’m doing a double cartwheel round-off back handspring, you know?
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.
Below are more pictures of Feisty.
As we inch closer and closer to the finale of For the Love of Ray J, we wanted to give you the latest news on what is going on with the show –
Danger claimed to be pregnant by Ray J about a month ago in an interview she gave to the National Enquirer. VH1 and Ray J both came out denying the pregnancy story. And for some reason, Danger made a blog on her myspace about 2 weeks later claiming she was no longer pregnant. She did not give an explanation as to what might have happened or if she was even really pregnant to begin with. Danger also says she is currently engaged to Nick Cannon’s younger brother.
Ray J is also working on a soundtrack to his VH1 dating reality show. No word on when this soundtrack will be released but he recenetly shot a video for his first single.
Stilts is also back together with her husband, the one she was seperated from while one the show but refused to get a divorce for whatever reason. Seems like Ray J was right in sending her home, as she claimed in an interview given to VH1 that she never stopped having feelings for her then enstranged husband.
Cocktail aka Jojo will be outed on the show this week as having appeared in past reality shows. Cocktail had appeared in the first season of Oxygen Bad Girls Club as a replacement. She also appeared in the first season of Bravo’s Millionaire MatchMaker as one of the girls looking to date the millionaires. It will be interesting to see if Ray J decides to send her home or not.
Chardonnay is also actually a stripper in Atlanta is very open about what she does for a living. The six girls remaining on the show include Danger, Cocktail, Unique, Cashmere, Chardonnay, and Fiesty.
UPDATE - A smart commenter going by the name of Olivia made a great observation that Cocktail was not the girl that appeared on the Millionaire Matchmaker. After watching the video again, it turns out Olivia is correct, and Cocktail has never made an appearance on Millionaire Matchmaker. Thanks Olivia!
