Larissa Bootz Hodge

Loyal reader Mrs. DetroittoATL emailed Sandrarose.com to request an update on Larissa “Bootz” Hodge from Flavor Of Love.

Larissa, 33, is divorced and raising her 2 children in Los Angeles as a single mother.

VH1 recently tracked her down in 2016 and she said, “I am collecting my checks, going to school to get a degree in business.”

Larissa also said she was involved in a car accident that ended her reality TV career.

The former bisexual also appeared on Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School, and she was a hairstylist, but her attitude caused her to be let go from several hair salons in Los Angeles.

Other than occasional contact with co-star New York, Larissa says she no longer speaks with her former Flavor of Love co-stars.

Larissa said she still watches reality television and she is particularly fond of reality stars who “keep it real” including rapper Cardi B (formerly of LHHNY) and Joseline Hernandez (LHHATL).

Today Larissa earns a modest income pitching colon cleansing products on Instagram.com and Facebook.com.

    Why did a car accident end her career in reality TV?…

  • kgirl33

    That’s what I’m trying to figure out.

  • HalleMerry

    Maybe she’s collecting disability checks so she had to choose between those checks or sporadic reality TV checks.

  • Rayne

    I remember her and shay being tight from the show

  • Renee26

    She’s about 5 shades lighter

  • You Could Never

    One of them is now on our local radio station as a DJ. Seezinz (Seasons) Flavor of Love…3 I think? The one with Thing 1 and Thing 2. Glad they all doing them I guess.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I noticed that too. I’m waiting for the “it’s the lighting” comments. ?

  • You Could Never

    I love you for this gif. One of my faves. Well for more than this gif but you know what I mean.

  • Renee26

    The self hate is real

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Where is the one that had the herp lip and got booted, the one who had to wear the mint necklace cuz her breath was curling eyelashes, the one who shat on the steps,..

  • Renee26

    They’re all nasty for messing with Flava Flav….Yuck

  • MissHarlem

    Happy Friday boo. ???

  • You Could Never

    I need it baby cakes. Whole area shut down bc we got a lot more snow than we anticpiated. We back to normal almost now. How you is?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • Phyllis

    Herp lip was Beautiful. Bad breath was Shy and PooGirl was Somethin.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    I didn’t remember their names but they left an impression lol..

  • MissHarlem

    Aww that sucks. At least you save money in the house. My silver lining. I can’t complain got some things coming up for the year. That’s a text convo for sure.

  • Phyllis

    I wonder what happened to Hottie and Nibblz though ?

  • Karen Brady

    Hands down the best line in Flavor of Love history was when New York said in her confessional “I ain’t no back burner bitch!!”. I swear to Jesus I looked over at my stove and fell out hollering! I thought it was very original, HILARIOUS & swore I’d use it some day but decided it wouldn’t be the same cuz New York is one character honey.

  • Phyllis

    And I’m shame for remembering them. Ha!! They did leave quite an impression though..

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Girl don’t be I was a faithful watcher too lol! Every week I was like,,why da fuk do they want Flave?

  • Karen Brady

    Anybody watch Hoopz reality show with her sisters on Oxygen? No? Oh okay..you didn’t miss anything.

  • Tay Gee

    Tiffany “New York” Pollard is the only cast member from Flavor Of Love that really matters. She should be coined as the original fool, lmaooo. #shemakesgreattv #verymemorable

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Imma need her to fill those brows in. That’s all.

  • Coy little wink

    I liked Hoopz with Shaq ?

  • ChynasHairline

    I always liked her

  • tintin

    so she got a big payout for the car wreck, kinda what Sheree trying to do on RHOA. It ended her career cause she doesn’t need one anymore..she probably got a million and can survive/. Her kids are cute. And i didn’t really care for her on the show but she was alright.

  • Phyllis

    Flavs mother’s face when Hottie cooked that chicken in the microwave though. ??. I swear that show was real reality tv before all the scripted ones we have now.

  • my view

    hottie got married

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Happy Friday party people ??
    Mad y’all made me curious:

    Sapphryi don’t look like herself, nor too well a la keke wyatt eyes

    Hottie still out here with that 4/33/350 wig crooked to the side?????;got her old man & son on her ig

    Have a rockin weekend, hopes the shutdown is averted, cause it’ll be a mess if not
    ?

  • Phyllis

    The things that stand out about Larissa are her twerking in front of Flav’s friends at his party , Monique bucking up to her at the Charm School Reunion Show, and her telling Flav she was celibate. I don’t believe she even kissed him on the show. Either way, that’s the past. Seems she is doing well for herself and her kids are cuties.

  • Vegas1989

    Tell me about it…I’m here at work and they sent out an email letting us know what’s going on…I do have to show up to work on Monday if the SHUT DOWN take place. I hope my friend will be off travel because that Government CC is going to be cut off….LOL….NO FUNDS!!!

But they can send me to Hawaii to help out on something….LOL..My bestie be over there all the time sometime weeks at a time but away from her 4 littles ones. She be posting on I.G and I be like,” I’m telling Regina on you!”

  • Trace da Ace

    I thought her and “Shay” were cool? Or was that just on the show?? All I remember from Bootz was her jumping in that pool and messing up her weave….FUNNY….and I bet she was celibate….hell I would be too if I was around Flav….jus saying…..he is not coochie moistening material….

  • brownisback

    I tried to go tdy to Hawaii for training but they shut that down real fast so it was Vegas instead and my deputy chief was pissed because she didn’t want me to go and I was there for a week lol

  • Dowoop

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Ja Rule of going in on 50 Cent on Twitter. I thought he said he was past that beef. I’m going to need him to release a single if he wants me to take this seriously.

  • Yardgirl

    For reals!! That was the realest, not the made up crap that they have on now. TUH!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    New York could actually make me start watching reality tv again. She is hilarious and witty.

  • Bonita

    I would love to see her and Joseline Hernandez go toe to toe with those smart mouths! That would be comedy!

  • Ms..N

    Lmao be dry as a desert around Flav!!!

  • NeverSurprised

    Sandra, are you going to post about the black Atlanta mother who makes her 5 year old pay rent? It is a fascinating story that is trending right nown

    She is doing it to help her daughter learn the value of money and the role it plays in life. She gives her a $7.00 weekly allowance, but then she has to make repayments of $5.00.

    “I explained to her that in the real world most people spend most of their paycheck on bills with little to spend on themselves,” Evans wrote. “So, I make her give me $5 dollars back. $1 for rent $1 for water $1 for electricity $1 for cable and $1 for food.” Her daughter gets to keep $2.00.

    The mother actually puts the $5.00 intoa college fund for her daughter. I think this is a wonderful teaching tool and the story would would make for a lively Pro/Con discussion among your readers.

  • Tay Gee

    Yes it would be. New York is just funny though. She not really truly trying to fight. Joseline give me she would try to pop NY, lol.

  • Vegas1989

    LOL..My friend was like, come on out I have this suite with two beds you should use some of your leave to take a mini Vac….LOL…I told her I will fly out there and telework if I want as well….LOL

  • Bonita

    Naw, New York will fight if pushed. Remember when she snatched Pumpkin by the back of her head for spitting on her?

  • Trace da Ace

    omg yes@!!!! I just saw that they named that baby Chicago West….like really??? That is so…just….no!! And she nickname the baby “Chi”….now correct me if I am wrong, but thats what folks call Black Chyna….so why would you give your baby the nickname of your so called enemy????

  • brownisback

    I think that was in 2010, I know it was a while ago

  • brownisback

    #winning

  • Trace da Ace

  • Karen Brady

    Thanks!

  • Coy little wink

    ??? she seemed down to earth with her little tomboy self…like they were a fun couple

  • 1BlueStar

    Now, who asked about her again..??

  • SumthinSweeter

    I read on another site that Puffy said the reason why 50 simp constantly talks about him is because 50 really loves him.

    JaRule has big reasons to still hate 50 simp. Back when G-Unit was a “thing” and 50 was poppin, 50 use to read JaRule for filth constantly. Like for no reason or no reason I know of. 50 is a grown bully with no friends who lashes out though.

  • SumthinSweeter

    yeah this is old. she had a warrant for writhing bad checks.

  • SumthinSweeter

    they made her take out her weave after being arrested for writing bad checks from her uncles checking account.

  • Ms. Jackson

    When I seen Shay on LHHMiami I asked my guy where Bootz was, since. She’d been missing in action for years. (like he knew the answer) lol.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    How dreadful ?

  • SumthinSweeter

    No it was on the steps in the house!!!

  • FoodDrugsBooks

    The baby is 5, and will never be able to say ‘I miss the good old days when I was a child and didn’t have to pay bills” instead she will have to say, “I earned my keep now get out of my room, I pay bills here too and have since I was 5! Close the door behind you, I’ll be having dinner in privacy tonight Mother!” smh no one to protect the babies innocence

  • brownisback

    her friend………………….

  • WutizstillHERE!

    ROFL I remember that! LOLOLOL!!!

  • Yardgirl

    Oh ok, phew!!! That’s messed up though making her take her weave out!!

  • Yardgirl

    Thanks I thought that was a recent photo

  • Ryan

    That’s way too young. Let a child be a child. You can start that when they’re around 11 or 12. That woman is just living way too close to the edge and trying to make snatching money from her kid seem like some responsible lesson to get likes. “College fund.” Yeah right. Plus giving other folks bad ideas.

  • Tammie Reed

    I just clicked on her instagram page. It ALWAYS bothers me when folks put up blurry, dark or distorted pics! What kinda phone does she have that her pics look like that in 2018? That will make or break your instagram page for sure and it makes you look unprofessional or maybe she just don’t care! What brands would want to work with her with them type of pics? Lawd, let me go get ready for my event lol.

  • justlooking

    It’s probably some time of filter.

    Have a great night and wonderful week-end.

  • Tammie Reed

    Yeah, I noticed she over edits her pics too with filters, smh!

  • C Mack

    Chi = Shy
    Chy = First part of China
    They’re different?????

  • Cannelle

    100% agree. Why not just put the money in an account for the baby anyway and teach her at an older age, when she actually understands what currency is and the different types. I don’t agree with this at all and stated so on social media. I was outnumbered.

  • cottonscandyheary

    Jarule had 50 cent shot 5 times and was suppose to be his friend. Do this remind you of Tupac and Biggie situation.50 cent going to drag his ass allthe way to hell. Jarule think people forgot about him fucking that transgendered chick.

  • cottonscandyheary

    That wasnt boots. Bootz was the one that wanted to fight New York. She was the one that was a hairdresser.

  • Mister Fantastic

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    But so many don’t. The whole country is darn near bankrupted. I wish I had someone to teach me right early in life!!!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    At least she would know how to earn her life. Too many people are homeless. Something is not working!!!

  • TheWildChild

    All them skallwags should do a reunion show, just for laughs. ?? Hottie, Ms. NY, Saaphyre, Buckwild Becky, Spitting Cow, Shay, Hoopz & That big tall amazon cougar that actually won in the next season.

  • Cali

    No NEW post. Take your Katrash thirst to Sandra’s other post about them idiots. You knee grows are obsessed.

  • Youngblood

    She had the real bad attitude I thought her n her mother was going beat brakes off Monique

  • MeMee

    That was Hottie…

  • Wyteprivilege

    lol! That’s the REAL story!

  • SumthinSweeter

    LOL! JaRule had nothing to do with 50 getting shot. That happened wayyyyy before he became famous. I did find out though that their beef was because someone snatched JaRule’s chain that was a friend of 50’s and JaRule been hot at him every since. I doubt if their beef escalates to Biggie and Pac status though.

  • Gone Too Far

    LMFAO. Imagine it social media was a thing at the time

  • Gone Too Far

    Yeah her name was somethin lol

  • Gone Too Far

    I was 10 when flavor of love used to come on VH1. I had absolutely no business watching it looking back but I wish I could rewind back to those days because TV was hilarious af

  • Dee

    Chicago will be Set for life! She wont give a fugg who do’nt like her name. She will be running around with Apple Martin and Sir and Rumi, in the Lifestyles of the Rich, name challenged and famous.
