“Daisy of Love”: London Calling

I told you Daisy De La Hoya was going to pick London.

Of course, you probably already figured that out, too. It was obvious she was drawn to him and never recovered after he departed the show. I read somewhere that it really was only a week between when he left and when he came back, so that makes her pining for him a lot more understandable.

Plus, of course, Daisy’s psychic told her London (aka Joshua Lee) was the  best choice of the remaining four guys (which also included Sinister, Flex and 12 Pack).

“London is a homeless sex addict who my psychic thinks is perfect for me,” Daisy declared. “Go figure.”

Who doesn’t listen to their psychic?

I felt really bad for 12 Pack/Dave (who I just learned is a Jersey boy – go Dave!) when he was the first of the final three to be eliminated. But it wasn’t really a surprise, though. Sure, 12 Pack had his jerky moments just like the rest of the guys, but on the whole he seemed a lot more put together and pretty much out of Daisy’s emotional/mental league. He was also by far the funniest of the bunch, as evidenced by the all too hysterical skunk incident.

Don’t cry for 12 Pack. He’ll be getting his own show faster than you can say “banana hammock.” Mark my words.

Fox is out like sauerkraut.

And for the rest of my life,  if I ever see another photo of Fox that hilarious “Fox…oooooh yeah” music is going to automatically pop into my head. Thanks, VH1.

“Daisy of Love”: It’s been a wild ride

“Daisy of Love” has been a completely wonderful surprise for me. It’s entertaining and hilarious, and I’m honestly going to miss it after the finale airs this Sunday, July 26 (my birthday!!).

One of my favorite Daisy De La Hoya quotes:

“London is a homeless sex addict who my psychic thinks is perfect for me. Go figure.”

I frankly found Daisy annoying when she was trying to woo Bret Michaels in “Rock of Love.” So I really didn’t even plan on watching “Daisy of Love,” because I figured she would be even more annoying. But the reality is that couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure, she’s young and acts dopey, but she’s clearly not a bad person (and I think the dopiness is for the most part an act).

But the real break-out stars here are the men. I totally believe the “Daisy of Love” casting director deserves an Emmy for finding these guys. I can’t imagine they will ever be able to top this season (should Daisy decide – like her mentor, Bret – to do multiple seasons).

Seriously, what other show can you hear the words “banana hammock” uttered repeatedly?

As for who Daisy should pick, I go with London. Not because he’s the most deserving of the bunch (he’s definitely not), but because he’s exactly what she’s attracted to: young, foolish, immature and a bad boy. 12 Pack/Dave is the nicest and most mature of the bunch (and that’s really saying something), but I think he’s too mature and nice for Daisy. I don’t think she would fully appreciate him at this point in her life. Flex is a hot hothead, but I don’t think he’s right for her, either.

Actually, I don’t see her going far with any of them. Paging season 2!

In the meantime, I hope VH1 is planning a “Daisy of Love” marathon leading up to the finale.

“Daisy of Love”: Most entertaining show E-V-E-R?

I gotta hand it to VH1. No matter how blah I feel, “Daisy of Love” manages to lift my spirits. Just look at Riki’s double take:Vodpod videos no longer available.

You just knew she was going to pick Cha Cha (oops, I mean Chi Chi) over Big Rig. I think Big Rig – aka Jeremiah (what a hot Southern name!) – simply came on too strong and freaked Daisy out the other week by giving her his son’s photo. A more mature woman would probably have appreciated the gesture, but Daisy’s young, dumb and used to having guys treat her like trash, so it made her uncomfortable.

Too bad. I’m going to miss Big Rig’s cute Southern boy charm (though admittedly he could use some anger management classes). I’m still rooting for Flex, although at this point I’m thinking she won’t fully appreciate him, either. Sinister is too sensitive and mature for her, and I’m not sure about 12 Pack. (I refuse to call him “Dave”). He seems to have moments where he’s quite mature, but most of the time he just acts like an idiot. Is it an act for the show or is it legit?

Who cares? I’m loving every single minute of it. And I’m seriously starting to think that “Daisy of Love” is more entertaining than – gasp! – “Rock of Love.”  Take that, Bret Michaels!

“Daisy of Love”: Time to Flex some muscle

Oh, VH1, you must stop toying with me! It’s been two weeks since a new episode of “Daisy of Love.” We’re long overdue, don’t you think? Thank goodness the network posted a peek at this Sunday’s episode:

I’ve mentioned I’ve got a thing for Flex before, right? You can see more pix of him right here.

By the way, every time I catch a rerun of that skunk episode, I stop and watch it again. Too funny!

“True Blood’s” Alexander Skarsgard takes a bite out of “Paparazzi”

This is probably the oddest pairing I’ve seen in a while: “True Blood’s” hotter-than-hot Alexander Skarsgard (that’s Eric the vamp) starring in Lady Gaga’s latest video, “Paparazzi.”


Oh, and did you see who else was in the vid? The triplets – ’84, ’85 and ’86 – from “Daisy of Love.” Good grief.
