The show's main star, Flavor Flav, has made a name for himself from the music industry onto the small screen.

Now back on top, the rapper released his debut solo album, Flavor Flav, in 2006 and suffered the jabs of Katt Williams, Patton Oswalt, Lisa Lampanelli and others when "The Comedy Central Roast of Flavor Flav" aired in 2007. A year later he became a featured actor on the myNetworkTV sitcom "Under One Roof." (All Music)

The rapper/actor recently made headlines after his child support troubles spread online earlier this month.

William 'Flavor Flav' Drayton, Jr faces charges of back child support owing Mary Parker, the mother of four of his 7 children, a total of $63,458. Flavor Flav has been paying Parker $117 a week until she had the child support agreement amended to where he will have to pay $837.72 per child due to his lack of not paying, and that's not including the four kids' tuition.
