REALI-TEASE: Tiffany “New York” Pollard And Flava Flav Reunited And I’m So Happy I Could Spit!

Published

on

2006. The year I found myself in detention after proclaiming I was the “HBIC” of my high school. My only regret was not being clever enough to coin such an unforgettable acronym myself. Instead my inspiration came from the true, reality television pioneer, Tiffany “New York” Pollard.

How can we forget what a thrill it was to tune into Flavor Of Love each week to see which deserving lady rap legend, Flava Flav, would give a clock to a la Bachelor-esque.  New York competed fiercely each week for Flav’s love. So fiercely in fact, she became hated by pretty much every other contestant on the show. Hated or feared, New York made it clear that she was the “Head B***h In Charge (HBIC)” and was certainly going home with the viking helmet adorned, oversized clock wearing, grill smiling prize of a man. In the clock-ceremony heard round the world, Flav ultimately chose “Hoopz” (Nicole Alexander) as the winner of the competition, leaving New York devastated. But don’t cry for her Argentina, New York came back with guns blazing in season 2 of the hit the competition more determined than ever. Sadly she lost that season too. But hold back those tears my dears, New York then went to star in several spin off series and became a star all her own.

Although the OG Queen of Reality Tv has become rather quiet since her tenure on all those VH1 reality shows, New York has been creeping back into the mainstream. Just last year she was featured on an episode of Botched, where she corrected the breast augmentation that some of the Flavor Of Love ladies called angular. She then went to become the “HBIC” of another household and competed on Big Brother UK. All of this is to say that her majesty has kept herself busy. New York has also kept herself away from the man that broke her heart…twice…on national television. Until now!

Like two star crossed lovers, New York and Flav were reunited at a Black Cowboy Whiskey event, hosted by Traci Braxton (star of yet another reality show, Braxton Family Values). New York mentioned that seeing Flav was “like seeing a ghost,” but then posted this adorable picture of the two.

 

Ugh take me back to a simpler time! How do we get these two back on tv together!? You couldn’t bulldoze me away from the tv during a Flavor Of Love marathon, and I know the newer reality-tv bingers would feel the same!

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
