'NEW YORK' SNAGS OWN SHOW
By DON KAPLAN
October 16, 2006 -- RAPPER Flavor Flav may have dumped his sassy, out spoken date, New York, on last night's season finale of "Flavor of Love 2," but she'll be back soon - with her own VH1 show, "Flavorette."
New York, whose real name is Tiffany Patterson, 24, is in the final weeks of filming the over-the-top "Bachelorette"-style show in which 20 single guys try to win her heart.
"These guys are so dramatic," says Patterson. "They're worse than the women who were on season one and season two [of "Flavor of Love"]. This show is so chaotic, it's overboard, it's over-the-top, it's extreme and these guys know they're fighting for a wonderful woman so they've been at each other's throats and I'm flattered by it. I can't complain."
VH1 has not yet decided on an air date for the new show.
"I like it when the guys go at each other," she says. "I'm a prize, I'm so worth it - frankly, it turns me on."
She says the show is far along already and right now only three guys remain, and she's falling in love with one of them.
"There's one man in particular that I can definitely see myself living out the rest of my life with," she says.
If "Flavorette" is anything like "Flavor," over-the-top could be a mild way of describing it.
The show, which wrapped up its second season last night, featured 15 women trying to woo the rapper. New York (a nick-name given to her by Flav, because she's from Upstate New York) appeared on both seasons and fought with almost everyone on the show but Flav.
"I would tell all those other women who gave me a hard time [on the show] that I want them to eat their hearts out," Patterson gloats. "They should just know that you cannot ever hold a good woman down, I'm doing my thing and I'm a real star, I was born a star, baby, and everyone needs to know that!"
The animosity between Patterson and the rest of girls peaked toward the end of season 1, when she was spit on by another girl during an elimination ceremony. The girl has since claimed she was set up by producers and that her flying loogie was a special effect added later on.
"It was real, and it was a bad moment," says New York. "To me, that person is a farm animal, she was bred, she was born in a stable of some sort."
