Newyork is back! The new reality show, “Newyork Goes To Work” premiered on VH1 on May 4th. Tiffany Pollard alias “Newyork” is somewhat crazy but i guess that’s what keeps the viewers returning to VH1 wanting more. Intrestingly the show has received mixed reviews from viewers. Some have called it annoying while the die hard newyork fans love the show. But can you blame Tiffany Pollard for wanting to milk her fifteen minutes of fame?
So the whole premise of the show is that fans vote for the job of the week for Newyork. If she is able to complete the task successfully she earns $10,000 and failure to to succeed, she gets nothing.
This week, she was chosen to be a pig farmer and perform some nasty task including inseminating a pig. According to the farmers, she successful won the $10,000. Personally, this doesn’t interest me but i will keep watching and keep you all posted. Hopefully this show will get better but at the moment i am not feeling it!
Where is the drama that we enjoy and look forward to? What do you all think about the show? Can’t wait to read your comments.
The I love money 2 finale ended with Flavor of Love 3 alum Myammee winning the final prize of $250,000. Tailor Made came in a close second with IT coming in a very distant 3rd. Myammee talks to VH1 in the interview below about what it feels like to win, her plans for the money, and her feelings towards Ice & Prancer.
What was key to your success?
I came not to make any friends (even though I did). I came to try and win the money the best I could. And I did what I had to do to get it done, in all areas. Of course, I had a couple people around me motivating me to keep going even though I wanted to quit and say f*** it. Tailor Made kept me there.
There were also people there who were attempting to do the opposite. Any regrets that you grabbed Buckwild’s face?
No, because where I’m from, grabbing somebody’s face is way worse than punching somebody in the face. At home they were like, “Damn, I would’ve told you to just punch me in the face before you did that.”
You cried a lot, which was surprising. Were any of those tears fake?
No tears were fake.
Not even when you were crying like, “Oh Ice!”
Even though the blog said it was fake, no, it was not fake. I felt real bad because I raised my hand for her and she didn’t do the same. Like, “Damn I just voted for you. You’re not gonna vote for me?” So I cried a lot when she left and felt like it was my fault. She is still my girl to this day and she kind of forgave me about it because she understood it was a game.
Is she your main dog from the show?
She is the only person I still get in contact to this day with. And she is just a cool girl. She just understood my situation. Even though it was very sad…like I really cried, for real. Like seriously.
Why did you clash with with Saaphyri and Buckwild so hard?
Saaphyri was jealous. Look at her, look at me. Put us side by side. There’s no comparison. She was so into It, and she knew how he was flirting with everybody in the house. Baby, I don’t want It. It? What can I do with him? Nothing. I guess she was jealous of the fact that we were cool.
Were you interested in anybody?
No. Craig was kinda cute, but the dudes in the house were wack. They’re not my type. Whiteboy, if he was on this season, you probably woulda seen something go down.
That’s very Megan of you, just like the lingerie.
Oh my God. Do not start with this girl and this lingerie! First of all, let me talk about Whiteboy. Whiteboy’s from Miami, so I’m used to that type of swag, anyway. Second of all, me like her? I would never be. I wore lingerie on Flavor of Love 3 during the second episode. I didn’t know we could walk around in it till I saw her ass on the TV! I’m like, if they can let her walk around in the bathing suit, they can let me walk around in my damn lingerie. That’s what I was trying to say, but then everyone took it and twisted it, like, “Oh, you tryin’ to be like Megan.” I would never try to be like anybody. I’m me. Myammee is always Myamee.
Do you like Megan?
She’s cool. I don’t have anything against her because I don’t know her. But I’m not trying to be like her. We’re two different markets. Like: no.
What about Becky?
I don’t even want to discuss her. She’s like nothing. I don’t even see her. Who is that?
On the other hand, you were uncommonly tight with Tailor Made.
He was kinda like my big brother in the house. He kept me grounded. I kept him grounded, fashionably right. I got mad love for him.
Your alliance took you to the end.
It was really hard to believe that it was going to do that, because the “loudmouths” were crazy. But the good thing about them is that they talked so much that they revealed too much. We laid back and didn’t talk too much. They had no idea what we were thinking.
Any regrets when it comes to your eliminations?
No regrets. I’m happy I got rid of Prancer, I’m happy I got rid of 20. I went against Tailor Made and It at the end. If I would have kept one of those other people, I probably wouldn’t have won or it would have been a greater challenge.
You eliminated Prancer because she was a threat, right?
Yeah. I mean, I think I still could have taken her, but I thought I owed Tailor Made to stay there. I was going off my emotions and something inside said, “What are you doing? Keep Prancer here.” But I thought that since he kept me here, he deserved a chance to try to win. I knew if I was meant to win, I would.
More of the Interview and Photos of Myammee After The Jump!
In very weird and strange news today, the NYPost is reporting that Tila Tequila is claiming to be dating Ray J. Which is interesting because Ray J is suppose to be dating Cocktail, the winner of his reality show – For the Love of Ray J.
According to the Post, Tila posted a blog at 3:45 a.m. this morning she stating “my baby is Ray J…..and no man has made me feel so loved and so happy in such a long time.” She was apparently trying to clear up “rumors” about people saying she is dating Diddy and Tyrese (even though no one has heard any of these “rumors”)
“Tila Tequila is officially dating Ray J!” she said “I think we make the cutest couple…. don’t you?”
Ray J added fuel to this rumor by posting the following on his twitter today – “@officialTila love u more!!!! you my future wifey.” Which is even more interesting because he posted the following to Cocktail on Friday via his Twitter – “@cocktailvh1 what’s up baby.. You know I wish u were here with me.”
So are Ray J and Tila really dating, or just being attention whores? And How does Cocktail feel about this? Only time will tell.
Update: Cocktail just posted the following on her Twitter – “Tila Tequila is doin waaaayyy too much! She better fall back on that bullshit! She wish she had my man. Ray is all mine!”
Lasting longer that most reality relationships, seems like Cocktail and Ray J are still going strong as a couple. The above photo was reportedly taken last week.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out as VH1 has greenlighted a 2nd season of For The Love of Ray J. The show got some very good ratings. Cocktail talks about her feelings towards Ray J and being in love with him in her VH1 interview below -
What has your communication with Ray been like since the show wrapped?
If we don’t talk everyday, we at least text each other. We make a point to see each other at least twice a month. That’s just what our schedules can fit. He’s on the road and doing stuff, and lately, I’ve been on the road as well, with appearances and whatnot.
What’s the status of your relationship? Is he your boyfriend?
Yeah. He’s my boyfriend, and the fact that I’m not seeing my boyfriend as much as I’d like to is different from what I’m used to. I would love to see him everyday and have him come home to me every night. But that’s not what it is, and I have to take it for what it is. I’m patiently learning his lifestyle. I expected this, but I’m sad now that I’m going through it. But it just makes the times I see him even more special.
Do you love him?
I do. I’m in love with him. I’m head over heels. When I tell my girlfriends that they’re like, “Are you kidding me?” No, this is the only man in my life right now that can say anything to me and make me fall into tears. It takes someone that I care about to go through with that emotion and show my vulnerability. I know I cried every three seconds on the show, but I care about him so much that he can say anything, the sweetest thing, the most horrible thing, and I burst into tears. I’m so overwhelmed.
What did you think when that was turned on you and your participation on the Bad Girls Club became a plot point? Did you think you’d be eliminated?
No. The girls were kind of talking about it early on. When I entered the house, they told me I looked familiar. I kind of just drew the attention away from myself. I knew then that I would have to address it to Ray at some point, but I didn’t early on because I didn’t want him to think I was there for the wrong reasons. I knew that if nobody said anything and I was the first to later on, maybe he’d get to know me a little bit and not eliminate me because I was on another reality show. I thought I could at least get to the point where he gave me the benefit of the doubt.
That was good strategy, too. Any thoughts on being portrayed as a gold-digger on Bad Girls Club and then ending up with a guy who makes considerable bank on this show?
The whole gold-digger thing was honestly something I said to better my chances of getting on a show that I thought had a different purpose. I thought that by saying I was something I wasn’t, it would give me an image. I thought it was going to make me more of an interesting character for people to watch. That’s the only reason I said things like that. If I was really like that, I would come out in things that I say or my personality. I’m a social worker. I’m not into that. If you look back on my roster of ex-boyfriends, none of them are wealthy. None are famous. Nothing. I’m a down-to-earth type of gal. I don’t date men for their status. If people judge me on saying I’m a gold-digger three years ago, so be it. But it was for entertainment purposes. I wanted to be on TV. And it wasn’t even like I was a main character. I was a replacement, and I was boring.
In an all new interview with VH1, Bret Michaels opens up about Taya, his career and his openess to doing another season of Rock of Love. Below are some excerpts from the interview -
What you just taped could be the very last episode of Rock of Love, but I don’t feel like it was mourned properly.
Whether it is or isn’t the last is yet to be seen, as far as what happens with me and Taya. That’s what we were in this trailer talking about [before this interview]: Where does this go? Do we date? Do we take it little by little? When you say “committed relationship,” you’re asking someone for a lot. She lives in Cleveland with her son. She travels. I travel. And another thing is that I’m getting much better at advice than I am at finding love. Bret is the rock doc of love. That’s my new thing. It seemed like I saved everyone’s relationship but mine. Everyone got married, had kids, got engaged, got back with their boyfriend.
I guess I had that impression that this was the end, because you said you weren’t going to do this again at the beginning of the season.
I meant that sincerely. After the Ambre thing, I didn’t know if I could do it all over again. I talked to Ambre about it right before the show started taping, just to basically telling her that I wasn’t trying to throw her under the bus by doing this show. And I think people can sense it. You saw what happened after the reunion taping: I talked to those girls. I talked to Maria [who was hysterical over not getting to say anything to Bret well after the lights had gone down]. It wasn’t like, “Hey, I’m done with you. Thanks. It was all TV.” I think the world gets that sincerity. I enjoy being with these girls. I enjoy hanging with them. I’ll see almost all of these girls again at my shows or just hanging out.
Any thoughts on making out with Mindy during the reunion?
I think that I absolutely made the right choice with Taya. But when Mindy walked up and gave me that kiss…My heart is broken that Mindy didn’t say to me on the island that she loved me. I really like Mindy. Me and Mindy need to get together and speak. I didn’t know she was having all those emotional love moments. I couldn’t read her. Taya, she’s good. Whether she was playing me or not, she’s good.
Did you pay attention to Rock of Love Charm School?
Oh yeah. And I plan on watching Daisy of Love, too. I just found out that Megan’s going to have a show. She’s a character, man. She should have a show. But Daisy, she was my heroin. I was sexually addicted to her. I think she’s gonna have a pretty good time on her show.
Have you seen the Eminem video?
I thought it was f***ing hilarious. He always does spoofs of people, and I think what he did was great. When you get into something like that, it’s like you’re being accepted into pop culture. Eminem is kind of like my younger, hotter, better-looking brother. That video kinda made me jealous (laughs).
If this is the end, pop culture is going to be left with a void. There is nothing like Rock of Love.
We’ll see what happens with Taya. If it works out, maybe I can become some sort of love adviser. If not, I’d love to come back and do it all again.
Are you ready for The Love of Ray J’s season finale this Monday? Well we are! Below is a sneak preview of what’s to come. The rumor is also that one of the three remaining contestants will quit, hmm wondering who that could be?
