The shows: The romance between the Public Enemy rapper and actress began on 2004s The Surreal Life. Color us cynics, but any relationship that starts on a reality show with the word surreal in the title may not have the brightest of futures. But if happily ever after wasnt in Flavor Flav and Brigittes script, a few more reality shows were birthed. The pair starred in 2005s Strange Love, which also chronicled their impending breakup. How the shows hurt them: Public Enemy is one of the more storied rap acts in popular music, and a political one to boot. But Flavor Flavs reality show antics and Comedy Central roasting arent exactly helping the legacy. Nielsen has become a reality show staple.
