      Bio

      Showered with praise,and lauded by fans shouting
      " You should have won,"
      Goldie is determined to become one of TV's hippest comediennes.Her contribution to VH1's FLAVOR OF LOVE helped the show become the network's second highest-rated and program ever!
      The first season of VH-1 reality
      show Flavor of Love was simply…
      out of control. That show, was
      must see TV. Whether we liked it
      or not, we have to admit, at times
      it was hard to watch and even
      harder to change the channel.
      The spitting incident with Pumpkin,
      and who can forget Ms. New
      York? These two ladies became
      infamous, however, there was one
      person who always seemed to be
      the crowd favorite, who stayed
      out of most of the drama and
      managed to make it to the final
      four. Whether it was her southern
      accent, her big smile or her
      infectious personality, Courtney
      “Goldie” Jackson found a way to
      stay low key but still play the
      game.
      “That show took strategy,” says the
      North Carolina native. “I knew I wasn’t
      going sleep with Flav, but I didn’t
      want to go home either.” Her plan
      was to “go Richard Pryor on him” and
      keep him laughing. Unlike a lot of
      the girls on the show, Goldie didn’t
      embarrass herself. Of course, not
      everyone liked what they saw. She
      says her family was happy for her;
      some were excited to see someone
      they actually know on TV every week.
      Her father, on the other hand, said “if
      that’s the best they got for you, you
      need to come on home.”
      Goldie is from a small town, and was
      raised on a farm. She says she
      learned to drive a tractor before she
      drove a car. Although her family was
      supportive of her journey to L.A., that
      was not her original plan. She was a
      psychology/pre-med student at the
      University of North Carolina-Chapel
      Hill. After graduating, she was not
      accepted into medical school, so she
      packed up and headed for Hollywood.
      Courtney and a friend saw the audition
      for Flava of Love listed on
      craigslist.com, and within weeks of
      her arrival, she was a cast member on
      the popular VH1 reality show.
      There’s no doubt that many people
      who watched Flava of Love had to be
      wondering the same thing: ‘are these
      girls really feelin this dude?’ Goldie
      admits that she only went to the audition
      because her friend kept asking
      her to do it, adding that she says she
      was actually hesitant about doing the
      show. She conceded that at first she
      didn’t want to do it, but was in fact
      curious about meeting Flav. She
      says she’s unsure if Flav was really
      looking for love on the show, but did
      sense he appeared to be sincere at
      times. She went on to say that she
      and Flav don’t keep in touch, but they
      do speak when they bump into each
      other at Hollywood hot-spots. The
      Flava of Love alumni Courtney does
      keep in touch with include Bucky,
      Pumpkin, and Buckwild, all of whom
      she met on Charm School. Charm
      School was a VH-1 Flava of Love spinoff
      show where host/comedienne
      Mo’Nique attempted to make the ladies
      from the Flava of Love show
      more lady like. On this show, Goldie
      was once again sent packing.
      Mo’Nique, sensing that Goldie was
      not as hard edged as the other girls,
      offered her the chance to develop her
      comedy and take her routine on the
      road. In case you’re wondering how
      that all panned out, according to
      Goldie, “it aint gonna happen,” she
      said. Rumors swirl that she did an
      unflattering joke about Mo’Nique,
      after which she was axed from the
      comedy line-up.
      Even though Goldie is no longer
      Mo’Nique’s opening act, she is still
      doing comedy. Currently living in LA,
      she travels across the country giving
      her comedic version of the tales of
      reality TV and other funny aspects of
      her life. There’s no denying that
      Flava of Love has helped her visibility,
      just as there’s no denying those
      experiences are a huge part of her act.
      She jokes about being nominated for
      an Oscar award after kissing Flav
      “that was some serious acting.” She
      says Chris Rock, Ellen Degeneres,
      and Chris Rock as her favorite comedians.
      Goldie wants people to know there is more to her than what you see on TV. She is well educated, sexy and classy. She speaks at local schools and is becoming a popular
      motivational speaker. She is also
      taking acting classes, and just finished
      touring with the stage play
      “Three Ways to Get a Husband”
      where she co-starred with Billie Dee
      Williams, and Devon Warren. Right
      on point with the personality we saw
      on TV, she jokes, “I been an extra in
      some of the hottest shit”. She was
      had roles as an extra in “This Christmas”
      and “DreamGirls,” and also
      made an appearance in the 2006 film
      “Accepted.” She says she intends to
      make her fifteen minutes of fame last
      a lifetime.
