Another day, another reality show… this time VH1 has decided to help a few family’s with their issues while still providing a bit of entertainment.
In a new reality show called ‘Family Therapy,’ four families check into a treatment center run by Dr. Jenn Mann (‘Couples Therapy’) to work on problems with their loved ones.
Family Therapy, Episode 1
The premiere season features quite a few interesting characters. Tiffany “New York” Pollard aims to show her mother Michell “Sister” Patterson she is no longer the little girl that can be bossed around and controlled; Bam Margera, joined by mother April, comes to not only work on mending the family members he tormented for years on shows like Jackass and Viva La Bam, but also to get sober; Brittany and Briana DeJesus need to fix their sibling rivalry; and Dina and Michael Lohan, despite already being divorced, want to mend their relationship for their children’s sake.
[Sidebar: Having New York, Sister Patterson & Dame Dash in the same room is bound to be a good time but I ain’t gone eeeen lie… I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, so I don’t have much of an opinion about it. But I digress..]

Sad news… Ahmad Givens, a.k.a. ‘Real’ from the VH1 reality show “Real Chance of Love” has died after a long battle with colon cancer.
Real and his brother Kamal Givens, aka ‘Chance,’ were amongst the first to take the reality world by storm, appearing on several spin offs of ‘The Flavor of Love,’ which began as a romance show starring Public Enemy rapper Flavor Flav.
The long-haired Givens first appeared as a contestant on I Love New York, which featured Flavor finalist Tiffany ‘New York’ Pollard on her own search for love, and then he and his brother joined forces to search for their own love interests in ‘Real Chance of Love’.
Real was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer in 2013 and his prognosis looked hopeful following surgery to remove the cancer. However, he relapsed in 2014 and underwent chemotherapy. A fall in January left him bedridden.
His brother Kamal left the following heartfelt message for him online earlier today… Continue Reading…
Tiffany “New York” Pollard
was once riding high off of the reality show fame she received from bumping skins with Flavor Flav. She even scored a few more minutes of fame several of her own spin-off shows.
We haven’t seen much of Pollard since she shed her weave early last year and did that natural hair photoshoot.

New York has a “new” look. She’s decided to shed the weave and rock her natural hair in a new photoshoot with photographer Antoine Revelli.

New York looks adorable in natural hair but I’m still rid’n with Keesh about my own decision not to go there…

All y’all Atlanta “New York” fans get ready…Tiffany Pollard is headed to the ‘A’. The loud-mouthed drama queen who gained notoriety from doing Flavor Flav has been in L.A. honing her acting skills and says she’s ready for her onstage debut. Pollard will be featured in the Atlanta production of Eve Ensler’s Obie-award winning play ‘The Vagina Monologues.’
“It’s kind of a serious actress type thingy and that’s what I’m striving to be,” Pollard said. “I really want to lend my voice and let people see that I’m there and I’m focused and I want to be a part of it.”
Coming off of reality TV, Pollard’s transition into acting may be quite a challenge. But she said she’s up for it.
“I think what people fail to realize is that before I got discovered to do this reality television thing, I already had a dream and vision in mind for my life,” she said. “I always wanted to be a dramatic actress. I know that the talent is there. I know that the passion is there. It’s going to be difficult for me to align myself in the public eye because I am known for one thing and it’s a little typical. I have to do some groundbreaking work, but I’m not a stranger to hard work.”
The show hits Atlanta April 4th. Click here for more information.
