Daisy Chain

Television’s about to get a little bit skankier. VH1 announced Rock of Love Season 2 runner-up, Daisy de la Hoya is getting her own show, Daisy of Love.

Seriously, do we really need to see more this terrifyingly plastic woman’s fake weeping? If they were going to give a Rock of Love girl her own show, I’d much rather see Heather from Season 1 or manipulative (yet, oddly amusing) Meagan from Season 2. They’re far more entertaining.

Of course, they’re both currently appearing in Rock of Love Charm School, VH1’s way of stretching the ratings power of their “Of Love” shows while letting the girls extend their 15 minutes of fame.

The show follows in the footsteps of Flavor of Love Charm School, attempting to give some of the skankiest contestants a little class.

The craziest thing about all this is to think that a hookup between Flavor Flav and Brigitte Nielsen on The Surreal Life has led to so many shows and new reality “stars.” Let’s examine the chain:

These two hooked up on The Surreal Life. That begat their weird spinoff, Strange Love.

Brigitte dumped Flav, so he got his own shows, Flavor of Love 1,2 and 3.

Flav dumped New York twice, and then she got her own shows, I Love New York 1 and 2 and New York Goes to Hollywood.

Seeing the popularity of watching an aging, has-been rapper wade through skanks on a quest for love, VH1 decided to give an aging, has-been rocker the same chance, and thus the birth of Rock of Love 1,2 and 3.

Seeing more potential ratings gold in the cat fights between contestants on the “of love” shows, VH1 created Flavor of Love Charm School and now, Rock of Love Charm School.

Then came I Love Money, pitting contestants of all the “love” shows against each other for the ultimate prize: cold, hard cash.

And now we’ve got Daisy of Love and Real Chance of Love (starring brothers “Real” and “Chance” of I Love New York and I Love Money fame). Kind of makes your head hurt, doesn’t it?

  1. Yes, the apocalyse has to be looming!

  2. WTF, VH1. You used to be good. You used to have Pop-Up Video. WTF happened?

  3. @lalaland13: For real! I think they let MTV get too close (aren’t they both owned by the same company?). Man, I loved Pop-Up Video and Behind the Music. Thankfully, they both still come on VH1 Classic, which is far superior to regular VH1.

  4. @lalaland13: I LOVED pop-up video! Fun factoids abound!

  5. Pop-up video can still be found on VH1 Classic at like 2 am every second Tuesday of the full moon. I just told my Tivo to “record all” and consider it a good day when I get an episode.
