Love & Hip Hop's Emily B. Talks Fabolous, Infidelity and Fashion
1 year ago
Pynk Magazine's cover girl is focusing on herself these days
Fans of VH1’s hit reality show Love & Hip Hop immediately fell in love with Emily Bustamente, known as Emily B., when we watched her relationship with rapper Fabolous unravel onscreen. Our heart strings pulled when Fab failed to show up at the family photo shoot last season. And on it’s premiere episode this season, Bustamente found out that the father of her three year old son had slept with the newest cast member and model Kim “Kimbella” Vanderhee.
Still, you can’t hold this stylist and soon-to-be designer down. Bustamente finally moved her and her family out of Fab’s house, a sign that perhaps she is setting boundaries (more about that later!), and is in the midst of designing her own wardrobe collection set to debut in Fall 2012.
“That’s my baby. That’s the love of my life,” Bustamente gushed at a recent party in honor of being Pynk Magazine’s cover girl. “That’s what I want to talk about all the time. I’m going to have a collection. It’s going to be affordable, trendy and fun and sexy.”
Loop 21 caught up with Bustamente at her party in New York’s Veranda Restaurant to talk the latest on Love & Hip Hop, if she thinks Fab is really dating Adrienne Bailon--a rumor that just can’t seem to die--and her advice to other heartbroken women.
Loop 21: Congrats on getting the cover of Pynk Magazine! What do you think is your biggest misconception?
Emily B.: Wow...that’ I’m too nice. I’m really not that nice actually. (Laughs) No, I’m just playing. I think people think that I’m too nice and that I don’t have a voice and that I’m not stern enough. But I’m actually very stern...very! I think you’ll get to see a little bit more of that toward the end of the season.
Loop 21: Any hint?
Emily B.: There’s some more drama. We just finished--actually they just asked me to film this weekend. So we haven’t even finished filming so it’s a lot more to come. We haven’t even really ended it yet. ...We’ve been filming since June. It’s been a lot.
Loop 21: Tell me about your relationships with the women on the show. Chrissy seems like a genuine friend. Are you really friends with any others?
