Flavor Flav, the erstwhile VH1 reality star who once upon a time was a serious rap icon, has a new form of income to fund his oversize clock pendant addiction: he has opened his first fried chicken restaurant. I suppose it makes sense, what with his first name being “Flavor.”
Flav’s Fried Chicken opens Monday in Clinton, Iowa. Flav has been there preparing for the launch and told the Clinton Herald he’ll visit often for promotions and even work the fryer.
Flav says it’s the first in a chain that stemmed from the 99 cent wings he served at Mama Cimino in Las Vegas [see video below – Ed.]. His business partner is the brother of that restaurant’s owner. [WFTV]
My favorite part about this story? At no point did I have to watch Flav make out with a drunk Brigitte Nielsen.
I would have liked to see him come up with a better name than Flav’s Fried Chicken, though. If he’d just boasted that his chicken tastes better while costing less than other restaurants’, he could have called it Savor Save.
