NEW YORK (CBS) "Flavor of Love" reality show contestant Hotlanta isn't looking so hot in her mugshot after allegedly committing an unspecified violent act involving a child, according to E! Online.

The 29-year-old, also known as Nikky Jamz or Nicole Essignman, is a mother of three, a dentist's assistant and a fame seeker, who appeared on VH1's "Flavor of Love," a dating show in which people compete for the affections of rap star "Flavor Flav."

The Cobb County Sheriff's Office told E! that on Jan. 30 Essignman was arrested in Atlanta on two counts of simple battery and one count of cruelty to children.

Due to the nature of the charges, the details aren't being released yet, the celebrity site reported.

Hotlanta is free on $2,500 bail. Did Flav bail her out?
