Flavor Flav is a full time “entrepreNegro” now that he’s opened his first friend chicken restaurant in Iowa, but his life still isn’t complete.
Flav, whose real name is William Drayton Jr., grew up in Freeport, N.Y. and says he dropped out of school in 10th grade.? Now he’s been inspired to earn his high school diploma and wants to do it in the state he started his buisness. (Oh… and he record it all for a new reality TV show!)
Drayton opened Flav’s Fried Chicken in Clinton, Iowa last month and just last week, the 51-year-old pitched his idea for “Flavor Flav Goes Back to High School” to the local school superintendent and a school board member.
Flav says he’ll approach the full board in a couple of weeks. As you know, Flavor Flav was a member of the iconic ’80s hip-hop group Public Enemy and has since found new fame on reality shows.
One thing’s for sure… he should never be late for class!!

In what was supposed to be a suprise ending, Flavor Flav chose?Thing 2 last night in the season finale of Flavor of Love.?? His final three included Black and
big foreheaded Sincere.??If you remember, Thing 1 and Thing 2 were the identical twins.? Their real names…Latrisha & Latresha.? I dunno which is which, but I read that Latresha is the “curvier twin”?and Latrisha was the one with the old boyfriend.? Hopefully Thing 2 will take some of her prize money and get her and her twin’s?teeth fixed. 😯 Click here?for a full recap.
I don’t see the resemblance…do you?? Well, actually Terrell Owens is not related to Flav but will PLAY?his long lost brother in Wednesday on the MyNetworkTV show ”Under One Roof.“?
Owens tries convincing Flav and sitcom sibling Kelly Perine that they’re all brothers in hopes of getting them to invest in his Web site. ”I see dollar signs,” Owens said in an interview with The Associated Press. ”I’m trying to kind of smooth my way into the family, but Flav is not buying it. It’s a lot of funny dialogue. It was a good time.” It might also be a first step toward a second career.?? (Source)
This will be Owen’s acting deput (besides that porn flick he accidentally walked into a few weeks ago)… 😯
It’s now possible that Flavor Flav, Tyra Banks and maybe even my favorite detective, Caroline Mason could win an Emmy award!? The Academy of Arts & Sciences recently announced that reality tv shows are now eligable for the Emmys!
A category recognizing “outstanding host for a reality or reality-competition program” was created by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and will be presented at the 60th annual Emmys in September.
The award recognizes that reality TV has become “an integral part of television and our culture,” John Shaffner, chairman and CEO of the TV academy, said in a statement Tuesday announcing the new honor. (Source)
Ok..Ok..I may have been stretching it a bit with Flav…but Caroline?Mason, THAT woman is bound for stardom!? 🙂
