VH1 is readying “I Love Money,” a spinoff of “Flavor of Love” that dispenses with the fiction that anyone involved with the show is looking for romance.
Skein, from 51 Minds Entertainment, features past contestants from “Flavor of Love,” “Rock of Love” and “I Love New York” squaring off against one another in a series of reality show competitions. While “Flavor” and its past offspring were constructed to help celebrities such as Bret Michaels and Flavor Flav find “love,” the new show will focus on the pursuit of cash prizes.
It’s like BET‘s “Hell Date” where they finally stopped pretending we’re watching “Blind Date” to see people fall in love. They cut out all the substance and went straight for the syrup.
In the same vein, we suggest a celebrity dancing show where all they do is fall down. Call it “Fumbling With the Stars”. It’d be great!
