I Love New York (Courtesy Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
I Love New York is a reality television series, which first aired on VH1. It features Tiffany Pollard (better known as "New York") in a quest to find her true love. The series is a spin off of another relationship competition series, Flavor of Love, which featured Pollard as a finalist in two consecutive seasons. Season 2's final episode was leaked to the internet a week before the TV air date. After Tango (Patrick S. Hunter), the winner of the show's first season, failed to deliver as New York's soul mate, the second season aired, revealing Tailor Made (George Weisgerber) as New York's chosen flame. Somehow during the taping of her latest show New York Goes to Hollywood, Weisgerber and Pollard separated.
In addition to Pollard, a host of other individuals from Flavor of Love, including "Sister" Patterson (Pollard's mother), appeared on the show to help Pollard choose the right man. Mauricio Sanchez played New York's assistant, "Chamo," but only for the first season. The production of a second season of I Love New York was first announced during a commercial break for the April 29, 2007, episode of Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School. After the show was wrapped up, the house was used for another VH1 show, Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School.
A number of contestants from Flavor of Love, Rock of Love, and I Love New York are brought together in a mansion in Mexico to compete in a co-ed battle of mental and physical challenges to win $250,000. I Love Money was filmed from February to March 2008, with the season premiere on July 6, 2008.

At the end of the series, Pollard decided to keep auditioning for film work, stating she would continue to document her career search in "New York Goes to Hollywood: Part 2"; if her film career doesn't pan out, she has mentioned a possible return to reality-television dating with an "I Love New York 3."
