Patrick “Tango” Hunter, the winner of the first I Love New York
reality series on VH1, may have fallen out of love with Tiffany “New York” Pollard, but he certainly formed a tight bond with his former fellow finalists. His friendship with some of the other men have lasted way beyond the series, and in June, Tango revealed that he and Mr. Boston, who Pollard eliminated despite being the “best kisser in the house,” are planning to star in their own reality series.
“Our project is going to focus on our relationship; me being more urban and I guess a lot of people say a cooler type of person and you have the total opposite in him,” Tango told AOL blog writer Marcus Vanderberg in an interview. “It's not going to focus on the black and white but more on the personality conflicts we have.”
Although no fresh details about the new show have emerged, Mr. Boston said in a more recent interview with Black Press Radio
that he has received an offer to do his own spin-off television series, though he did not say whether or not the show would involve Tango.
In the same interview, Mr. Boston also lashed out at New York, saying he's "pissed that she didn't pick me. She didn't get to experience the Boston Charm." His disdain for Tiffany Pollard is a feeling that Tango shares, despite winning the competition.
"She was dissing me harder than the dudes was," Tango said during the reunion. "I have absolutely no love for New York."
Despite how things worked out between Tango and Tiffany Pollard, he said I Love New York
has helped his music career, especially when it comes to gaining contacts in the industry.
“That's probably the most amazing part of it. Coming off a show like this, you can easily get absolutely no respect. I was Tango before the show. I had a great career before the show writing and ghostwriting for other artists. And now, I have been embraced by a lot of industry artists,” he said. “Bone Thugs, we have a great relationship – along with their DJ, DJ Ice. Carl Thomas I have a great relationship with. The list goes on and on.”
Since Tango broke off his engagement with Pollard, the former Flavor of Love
finalist will again be putting her heart on the line for the sake of finding her one true love. The second season of I Love New York
premieres in October on VH1.
