Strange Love was a reality TV show produced by Mindring Productions and aired in 2005. Starring the unlikely duo of Flavor Flav, a rapper known for his over-the-top persona, and Brigitte Nielsen, a Danish actress and model, the show followed their budding romance as they tried to navigate the challenges of their vastly different lifestyles.

Flavor Flav and Brigitte Nielsen first met on the VH1 reality show The Surreal Life, where they quickly hit it off and began a romantic relationship. Strange Love picks up where that show left off, as the two decide to continue dating and see if they can make a real relationship work.

The show is filled with the drama, humor, and larger-than-life personalities that viewers have come to expect from reality TV. Flavor Flav's quirky sense of humor and outlandish fashion sense are on full display as he tries to woo the beautiful and sophisticated Nielsen, who is herself no stranger to the spotlight.

Throughout the series, viewers get a glimpse into the lives of both Flavor Flav and Brigitte Nielsen, as they take turns visiting each other's homes and meeting each other's friends and families. The cultural differences between the two are often a source of tension, as Flavor Flav tries to introduce Nielsen to the world of hip hop and she struggles to understand his sometimes unintelligible slang.

But despite their differences, the couple remains dedicated to making their relationship work. Viewers watch as they go on dates, celebrate holidays together, and even collaborate on a music video.

Of course, no reality TV show would be complete without its fair share of drama, and Strange Love is no exception. As the couple's relationship progresses, they are forced to confront issues such as jealousy, conflicting priorities, and even the disapproval of their friends and family members.

But throughout it all, Flavor Flav and Brigitte Nielsen remain committed to each other. Whether they are attending red carpet events or cooking dinner together at home, their chemistry is undeniable, and viewers can't help but root for this unlikely pair.

Overall, Strange Love is a fun and entertaining show that offers a unique look into the lives of two larger-than-life personalities as they try to make a relationship work in the midst of the craziness of reality TV. Fans of Flavor Flav and Brigitte Nielsen will love seeing them together, while those who are new to the duo will find themselves drawn in by their undeniable charisma and charm.

Strange Love is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (11 episodes). The series first aired on January 2, 2005.
