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.

Do you look back on this as a difficult experience?
Nah. I kinda cruised along good. I’m happy the way everything turned out.
What are you going to do with your prize money?
Everybody wants to know how does Myammee change her hair like 1,000 times in one episode? I came up with this way that lets you take off your hair and put it on whenever you want to put on. Right now, it’s kind of bootleg how I do it. But with the money I plan to get it manufactured right, you know, get a patent and everything. I don’t want to reveal how to do it.
Besides that, do you have any plans for the money?
I’m thinking about opening up a shop in Miami: a hair salon and a shop on the other side. I have to clear out my debt so I can get these business loans. Once I do that, handle my student loans and stuff, I should be fine. Family, of course.
Are you still modeling?
Here and there. Right now, I’m focused on longevity. Like, where am I gonna be 10 years from now? I don’t want to work at Hooters forever. It’s a great job, but I don’t want to be there forever. I don’t want to have to depend on modeling gigs and appearances for the next five years. I wanna do something that will take me to the end.
