Sunday question: What do you hate most about “Flavor Of Love: Charm School”?

jpozners Icon Posted by Jennifer L Pozner

July 1st, 2007

Tonight marks the season finale of “Flavor Of Love Girls: Charm School,” the sickeningly infantilizing, boldly bigoted and thoroughly sexist VHI series aimed at “reforming” a gaggle of “slutacious” “ghetto” “whores” who were degraded — and who debased themselves — on the cable net’s earlier blacksploitation reality send-up “Flavor of Love.”

I probably won’t have time to write up a critique of the finale, ironically because I have to finish my book chapter summary on race and racism in reality TV tonight. So, instead, I’m opening the floor to you, WIMN friends.

Have you seen “Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School” (or the prior bad-acts “Flavor of Love” and/or “I Love New York“)? If so, what do you find most problematic about the series? Any particular quotes, scenes, production tricks, cockamamie premises or randomly despicable moments that stand out for you? What’s comedian and show host Monique most blatantly hypocritical line of the night? We want to know, in the comments field.

(VH1 is running the hell out of this series, so if you’ve missed it and feel like getting a bit queasy, check your local listings throughout the month. We’re looking for comments about every episode, not just the season finale, so feel free to let loose about “Charm School,” “I Love NY” and the original minstrel show that started it all, “Flavor of Love.”)

Comment away!

    I have observed that of all types of insurance, health care insurance is the most questionable because of the conflict between the insurance policy company’s duty to remain adrift and the client’s need to have insurance policies. Insurance companies’ commission rates on overall health plans have become low, thus some organizations struggle to gain profits. Thanks for the strategies you talk about through this blog.

    Yet another issue is that video games can be serious anyway with the major focus on learning rather than leisure. Although, there is an entertainment part to keep your sons or daughters engaged, each game is often designed to improve a specific skill set or course, such as numbers or scientific disciplines. Thanks for your post.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
