Flavor of Love’s New York may get her own VH1 series, is asking fans to sign a petition

In addition to starring in a second season of Flavor of Love, Flavor Flav may reunite with his first-season co-star New York for their own reality series.

AllHipHop.com reports that New York, real name Tiffany, “is rumored to have a new reality show with Flav in the upcoming months.” The site notes “that New York was the one that made for good TV.”

It may not be a done deal yet, though. On Monday, in her MySpace blog, New York asked people to sign a petition that says, “Flava of Flav’s New York is a beautiful woman who deserves real love. We would like VH1 to create a show to assist her in such a search.” As of last night, more than 2,400 people had signed — although some of them don’t quite understand the point of signing a petition, as they used the little form to complain about New York and insist that VH1 not give her a show.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
