To this very day, I wish I could tell you why they wanted me to do the show that bad but the casting director really wanted me to do it.
My final decision why I did it was because I knew I had no business on the show and I was kind of curious.
I bet she really would like to find love so why not give this a shot ? I enjoyed her hilarious commentary about the men as well as watching her hilarious interaction with the men. I can imagine a spin-off with 12 pack and Heat - two of the men- who became friends and party kings, touring all the clubs and bars in the Northeast...basically just partying and picking up women, getting drunk. Anyway, I have to say this was a very funny concept and the personalities were SO OVER THE TOP that you could NOT get through an episode without cracking up!
i think that new york is a big fake, i mean her whole guidelines of this show is stupid.
I wanted to see if a guy like me could go on a show like this and win. I gotta be honest - I'm a take a stand type of person.
I don't promote my music or anything like that on the show. Not even New York herself, I was just really curious about the show. Another part of me jumping into the reality TV world was the opportunity to put a strong African-American on television in a situation where they don't usually depict us. You have the guys that I don't get along with and that was the realist part of the show that people don't understand.
Films like “Zelig,” “Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid,” and “Forrest Gump” traded in re-creating personalities of yesteryear.
On the heels of “Gump” in 1995, director Robert Zemeckis resurrected Humphrey Bogart with the help of ILM artists for an episode of HBO’s “Tales From the Crypt.” Two years later, Fred Astaire’s widow, Robyn, licensed the song-and-dance icon’s image for an infamous Dirt Devil commercial that depicted him dancing with a cordless vacuum cleaner — much to the chagrin of Astaire’s fans and even his daughter, Ava.
A British actor — Guy Henry, star of BBC series “Holby City” — was employed to portray the character physically on set, while in post-production, his work was replaced with a rather impressive Cushing performance by the artists of Industrial Light & Magic.
We are usually comedians and we are doing something very, very silly. I'm the type of guy that likes to go against the grain. What was the relationship like off camera between you and the other guys in the house? The realist part of the show was the relationship between the guys.
The vast majority of the guys got along with me great. If you saw they didn't like me, they didn't like me in real life.
“You’re my rock,” she tells them, showing her emotional support while still making it all about her at the same time in classic reality-TV fashion.
However, the stars and EP tell THR the series won't be more censored despite recent criticism of the show's graphic portrayal of suicide.
