Spinoffs are greatly appreciated for a few reasons: they allow viewers to see lesser characters develop independently; they give viewers a different take of the characters from the previous sitcom; and, finally, spinoffs are uniquely responsible for creating that ‘neighboring effect’ on television, allowing audiences and characters, alike, feel as if they are stepping from one living room into another. This has been seen time and time again in television. Cheers begot Fraiser, Grey’s Anatomy begot Private Practice, Buffy begot Angel, and Dr. Who begot Torchwood. Check out some our favorites over the years.

Remember when you were a child and your imagination seemed to know no bounds. You could go from playing hide-n-go seek, to playing house, to being a jazzercise teacher in the blink of an eye (wait… no one else wanted to teach jazzercise?… Oh, okay). But as you got older, reality began to cement you and those things that you originally thought were possible, like jumping from a high altitude with an open umbrella and landing safely, began to seem ludicrous and dangerous.
However, with the ever present feature of reality television it seems as though people have lapsed back into that timely rationale of ‘what I see on TV is completely possible in real life.’ So, let’s play a game, shall we? Let’s imagine our lives were dictated by the realm of reality television.
If life was like reality television, this is how I would picture it *I wistfully look up while the scene around me dissolves and random violin music plays. I stop for a second to make sure I’m not having a seizure, then go back to daydreaming.*
Slowly but surely, reality television has dominated the airwaves, and we, viewers, have witnessed our fair share of relationships unfold and crumble under the sallow lights of television-fame. The constant exposure, desire to intrigue and need to create “authentic” moments often causes gigantic rifts between friendships and couples…even within iconic relationships. Jon & Kate, Britney Spears & Kevin Federline and Hulk & Linda Hogan have all fallen victim to the side effects of lime-light living, but they aren’t the only ones.
Diary Presents Brandy: Special Delivery: Brandy Norwood & Robert “Big Bert” Smith
The Grammy Award winning songstress, Brandy Norwood began her entertainment career as a 14-year old on the short-lived sitcom, “Thea” in 1993. Since, the actress/singer/dancer launched a successful singing career, which is where she has garnered the bulk of her success. While working on her third studio album, Full Moon, with Dark Child producer and composer Robert Smith, she became romantically involved with him, and eventually pregnant. In lieu of the pregnancy, the pop star and her “husband” decided to televise their love and home life on MTV’s Diary Presents Brandy: Special Delivery, where she documented the final months of pregnancy and birth of her daughter Sy’rai. Not long afterward, the two announced their separation, and later came clean about NEVER having been married in the first place. The nuptials were staged to help Brandy preserve her public image.

When I started on my first venture of “Where Are they Now?” It was really hard to try to pick which Flavor of Love girls to focus on. There were a total of 65 and I didn’t want to focus on some of my favorites and leave others behind. So, to be fair, I chose the final three from each season. But you amazing readers, had your favorites and you wanted to know what happened to them. Wanting to make you happy and put those gorgeous smiles on those gorgeous faces, we’re back again with our Reader’s Request version. We read the ones that you wanted to know about and we’re gonna give them to you!
I think we can all see that since the early Millennium, reality TV has taken over with a vengeance. Scripted comedies and dramas are floundering while tasteless, tacky and tired (dare I say, ratchet?) reality programs are making all the money. And we’re all watching! For shame, I know. They started way back in the early ’90s, and slowly but surely, they’re running the TV world. In the time of watching these shows, there have been many moments that had people talking. Whether they were for hilarious reasons or because they were crazy as hell, we’ve definitely come across some unforgettable moments. Here are a few, and feel free to KINDLY share moments that had you talking crazy way down below…
The Very Ratchet “Flavor of Love” Days: New York Gets Spit On By Pumkin (Start at 1:35)
Okay, so anybody could tell from just a few episodes of “Flavor of Love” that New York is crazy, however, there’s just some things you don’t do to people, not even a worst enemy, and that’s spit on them. During the first season of “Flavor of Love,” though she made it to the top three, Pumkin was given the boot and didn’t find it fair. While she tried to plead her case with Flav, as though she really wanted to stay because she cared for him (*rolls eyes*), New York got to flapping off at the mouth after she was called out for being an opportunist actress. The verbiage got ugly and before you knew it, Pumkin turned around and spit at New York, with the mess landing on her chin and hair (*gags*). I think everybody was talking about the incident because they were trading off stories of what they would have done had it been them. The push New York gave Pumkin after the fact that sent homegirl flying into the camera was also worth a good laugh or two as well.
