And honestly, after reading this list we are digging through our DVD drawers to dust off our copies of Flavor Of Love and I Love New York among others.

Details In Flavor Flav Arrest Emerge, Including Arguments, Knives, And Infidelity Rumors

Flavor Flav Mugshot Arrested
Yesterday we reported on the fact that Flavor Of Love star Flavor Flav was arrested after an altercation at his home in Las Vegas and was being held on $23,000 bail, and today, even more details of the dispute have emerged.

The police report states that Flav allegedly threw his fiancee, Elizabeth Trujillo, to the ground twice after an argument about infidelity. Trujillo’s 17-year-old son tried to intervene, and Flav reportedly chased the boy through the house with two kitchen knives. Though he admits to a scuffle with Trujillo, he denies chasing the boy. Up until this morning when he posted bail, Flav had been locked up at the Clark County jail, and he is expected to appear before a judge next week. Punishment if convicted could mean up to six years in prison for the Public Enemy star.

    Hoopz Gives Shaq A Piggyback Ride (!!!)

    With all apologies to Flavor Flav, Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander and Shaquille O’Neal might just be the greatest couple of this or any time. Last night, the lovebirds appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and performed one of the more amazing feats we have ever laid eyes on. Much has been made of the couple’s hilarious height differential, so when the 7’1″, 325 lb. Shaq Diesel boasted to Kimmel that his 5’2″, 120 lb.(ish) ladyfriend gave him piggyback rides around Shaq-apulco (his mansion), the talk show host naturally demanded proof.

    Moments later, Hoopz materialized from the green room—while wearing heels, no less!—and proceeded to hoist her mammoth man onto her back. Amazingly, she was able to carry him across the entire stage before wiping out. We’ve captured the moment in GIF form for you below, which you can appreciate over and over and over again.

    Full video of this momentous feat after the jump.

    Flavor Flav Talks Flavor Of Love With XXL

    Flavor Flav has a memoir coming out on June 1st called The Icon The Memoir in which the Public Enemy rapper discusses his drug addiction, his trouble with the law, and of course, his time spent on VH1′s Flavor of Love.

    In an interview with XXL Magazine, Flav elaborates on his stint as a reality star. He tells the site he got his start because “I was seen on the camera at Steve Harvey’s show. The next thing you know Bernie Mac people gave me a call and they want me to do a guest appearance on his show. Once I got out and did Surreal Life 3 it was a wrap. [That] turned into Strange Love with Brigitte Nielson. That turned into the Flavor of Love for three seasons.”

    When asked if he was ever really looking for true love on Flavor of Love, Flav responded “I don’t like hurting people’s feelings. You know it’s bad karma when you hurt people’s feelings. I had to be careful of the girls’ feelings that were really, really, really there for me. The ones that I knew were not there for me were the ones that I kept… [And] If anybody got it in, your boy Flavor Flav got it in.”

    While Flav says he doesn’t speak to any of the girls from Flavor Of Love, he does have a soft spot for one in particular, Somethin‘, otherwise known as The One Who Pooped On The Stairs. Flav remembers that “Sumthin’ was real cool and everything, but that’s what happens when a woman drinks all day and can’t hold her food in her system. I mean how much s— can a thong hold?” Words of wisdom if we ever heard them.

    It’s A Celebreality Dream Come True: Bret Michaels and Flavor Flav Duet! Really!

    In what is surely the greatest combination of flavors since you got YOUR chocolate in MY peanut butter, two of your favorite Celebreality superstars just made some sweet music together. Literally.

    TMZ reports that Flavor of Love star Flavor Flav joined Rock of Love star Bret Michaels on-stage in Dubuque, Iowa (of all the places!), for a killer version of Public Enemy’s 1990 Top 40 smash, “911 Is A Joke.” As you’ll see from the (admittedly crappy*) video above, Flav started the jawn off a capella style, but then Bret and his band joined in with some ferocious instrumental backing, at which point everyone in the audience got up and then got, got down.

    What do you guys think? Should Flav and Bret go out on tour together? Or should they stick to romancin’ the ladies?

    Shaq And Hoopz: The Almost Too-Happy Couple

    shaq_hoopz2

    Boston.com has the weirdest image gallery you’re likely to see all day: a 12-photo set called “Hoopz at home with Shaq” that features the reality related couple mugging profoundly in different places around the house. It’s like a non-stop “Caption This!” contest. (My pick for the one above: “With our money, we could buy and feed a million puppies!”) Seriously, why are they so happy? The two of them need to come down with season affect like normal people. It’s winter, for God’s sake.

    Speaking of profound, there is a giant height difference between them (two feet!). And yet, they see eye-to-eye when it comes to expressive displays. It’s a beautiful pairing, really. [Boston.com]
