They say the third times a charm, and no one’s hoping that more than Flavor Flav. The die-hard romantic is doing another round of his dating reality series, Flavor of Love 3, in hopes of finally finding Ms. Right. Since there was no shortage of ladies willing to battle for Flav’s heart, I had to ring up the man himself, who’s currently in Toronto filming his new sitcom Under One Roof for MyNetworkTV, and find out what makes him so darn irresistible.
How you doing Flav?
Like a coat in the closet, hanging in there.
Why did you decide to do Flavor of Love 3?
I decided to do another season is because Flavor of Love, I got kind of close to finding what I wanted, but the chemistry wasn’t there. Then, on Flavor of Love 2, I got a little closer. But the chemistry still wasn’t all the way there. Let me say this. For everybody, there is somebody. And in order to find that somebody, you got to go through people. You know what I mean? The only way I can find who’s for me is to keep going through people. I’m getting close.
What went wrong with Hoopz and Deelishis?
Hoopz is a great girl, the chemistry just wasn’t there. And then with Deelishis, she got real busy, we just really didn’t have the time to be together.
What are the Flavor of Love 3 gals doing to win your love?
I have the girls doing different challenges. If you watch any of the promos on TV, you can see that Flavor Flav is sky diving. Sky diving is something that I always wanted to do, and I want a girl who’s going to be down with me.
What’s the secret to your appeal?
I’m the kind of guy who is just so real with it. I’m very humble. And yes, Flavor Flav is definitely a gentleman. Every woman loves a gentleman. I get a little romantic and it’s the whole nine, light the candles and pop the cork, all of that.
What do you think of New York and Tailor Made as a couple?
Just to have the power to be able to help someone get their own show – New York is the spin-off of Flavor of Love – New York, she’s definitely crazy with it, just like her mom. I’m very happy for her and I wish her longevity with whomever she found. I’m just glad that it wasn’t me.
Tell me about your new show, Under One Roof.
Your man Flavor Flav gets to recite lines. He gets to learn scripts. It’s not like reality TV. I’m going to show the world that there’s more inside of me. I play the part of an ex-con from the streets. It’s funny, I ain’t going to lie. I got some funny parts.
How do you remember lines?
The real trick is studying the line and doing it no more than four minutes after I studied it. I’m serious. My memory span ain’t all that good. So I rehearse the line real quick and then say, “Let’s put it down!”
Valentine’s Day is coming up. Did you find love on Flavor of Love 3?
Only way I can really tell you that is you got to see it all the way to the end. If I give it to you now, I’m giving you my ending. But this third season, it’s bananas, you’re going to love it!
Flavor of Love 3 premieres Monday, Feb. 11 at 9 p.m. on VH1.
