Just when you thought that Flavor Flav ‘s foray into the reality TV world with ‘Flavor of Love’, was about the peak of personal branding gone horribly wrong, Flav has come up with new idea that not only tops it but jumps all over it and kicks it out the back door. You guessed it, um maybe not, Flav has gone into the fried chicken business! Of course the transition from rap royalty to reality show star to fried chicken store owner seemed like a natural progression for Flav. However, for the rest of us who may have experienced the wincing awkwardness of any of ‘Flavor of Love’s’ episodes, it is just another bizarre step in the living caricature that is the life of Flavor Flav’s. According to Billboard Flav has at some stage gained a culinary degree and has restaurant experience. Perhaps he has worked the fryers before and knows the Colonel’s secret recipe. Whatever the case, you can get it while it’s hot and dripping in fat at Flav’s Fried Chicken opening Monday in Clinton, Iowa.
