You might remember (or more likely don’t) Kamal “Chance” Givens. The one-time reality show contestant and Stallionaire came to fame by becoming the runner-up on the first season of I Love New York. He turned up in later seasons to coach New York toward her pick and eventually landed his own reality show alongside his brother Ahmad. But that was long ago, and now Chance is out here making headlines for getting attacked by monkeys in Thailand.
You read that right. Chance of first-wave VH1 reality show semi-fame was attacked by a baby monkey after getting a little too close to his fam. Chance was on-hand to film his documentary N***** in Thailand. Video footage obtained by TMZ shows the attack from Chance’s perspective, with a shot of the monkey before he went ape and then confused and jumbled screaming.
Later shots in the video show Givens getting stitched up. According to the gossip website, the TV star was rushed to the hospital where he got six stitches in his hand and bandages for wounds on his legs. Talk about a wild comeback to the game.
While it’s no monkey attack in a foreign country, Chance’s one-time co-star Tiffany “New York” Pollard has also found herself in some frightening situations recently. She’s involved in the new VH1 series Scared Famous which puts reality stars in a haunted house.
New York was recently put on edge when a contestant confronted her about supposed occult rituals that Pollard was performing in the house. After Alaska found an odd talisman on the porch of the house, she confronted Pollard about tampering with spirits beyond her control.
“Tiffany, of course, denies any type of involvement with the talisman, but lets Alaska know that she made a huge mistake in touching it. These spirits creeping around the house are very territorial, and when you get all touchy-feely with these highly powerful elements, bad things can happen.”
The show is hosted by Redman and features reality-famous folks going through challenges inspired by horror movies while living in a house that the show claims is one of the most haunted in America. It puts people from Black Ink Crew and RuPaul’s Drag Race alongside Yung Joc. We can not stress enough that this is a real show on television.

Since the reality show, things haven’t been so great for Chance. You can’t exactly blame him for leaping at the ch-…opportunity to head to the other side of the world and get back on TV. Since his time with New York, the only other time that the star has popped up in the headlines was when his brother Ahmad passed away in 2015 from colon cancer.
It’s unfortunate that the doc took a turn, but likely will lead to even more eyeballs on the show when it does come out.
Check out the video of Chance and the attack up top. What do you think? What could have set the monkey off like that? Will the monkey attack play into the documentary? If not, what could it possibly be about? Are monkeys just the worst? (No, of course not. Birds still exist.)
