Nicole Essigman is ‘Nikky Jamz’ – Flavor Of Love Star

February 19, 2010

Nicole Essigman (Nikky Jamz) aka ‘Hotlanta’ is known for her 15 minutes as a contestant on VH1’s Flavor Of Love, but today she is known as a suspected child abuser. Find out what happened here.

Her run on season three portrayed her as a boisterous, party girl who would do anything to win the love of Flava Flav. But after a long season of ‘wooing,’ Flav didn’t even choose the season’s winner to take his hand. Instead he proposed to his baby mama Kim.

Now that a few years have passed, we haven’t heard much out of her. Until this week, when reports surfaced that she was arrested and charged with some pretty disturbing sounding crimes in Cobb County, Georgia.

On January 30th, single mom Nicole Essigman (who also goes by Nikky Jamz and ‘Hotlanta’) was arrested for two counts of simple battery and one count of cruelty to children. Details of the incident have not been released, so it is anybody’s guess as to what she is specifically accused of. Frankly, I don’t want to speculate because it makes my stomach churn.

E! Online was able to reach the Marietta Police Department, and obtained the following brief statement:

“Because of the nature of the charges and the fact that it involves a minor, the incident report can only be released by a judge.”

A few years ago it sounded like she may be ready to launch some sort of television career, and maybe even a spot in a film called ‘Oblivious,’ but it doesn’t look like any of those projects materialized.

As of now, the 29-year-old is currently working as a dental assistant and has three children. At press time she was released on $2,500 bond.

If any details emerge I’ll be sure to post them…

Until then, here are some photos and video of Nicole Essigman, Nikky Jamz, or ‘Hotlanta’—whichever name you prefer.
