UPI News Service, 03/24/2006
A contestant who spit in her rival's face during the VH1 reality TV show, "Flavor of Love," has lost her substitute teaching job in California.
Brooke "Pumpkin" Thompson, 26, has been told she will no longer be used as a substitute teacher in Bakersfield, Calif., The New York Post reported Friday.
"We had kids that were sticking their heads in the door just to sneak a look at her, and that kind of craziness was just disruptive to the learning process," a school district official told The Post.
Thompson was runner-up in the competition to become the girlfriend of rapper Flava Flav.
During an argument with another woman on the show, she spit in her competitor's face.
