Emily Bustamante Talks About Love And Work, And Her Advice For Girls Everywhere


Emily Bustamante‘s story is hard not to get invested in, probably because she’s such a sweet person (who happens to be gorgeous and talented too). The Love And Hip Hop star’s relationship with Fabolous unraveled last season on the show, and season two is all about Emily’s redemption and rebirth. In this interview with Creme Magazine, Emily discusses her issues, her passions, and what it’s been like to move on. Here are some of our favorite quotes from the piece.

Emily on getting over Fab: I just focused on my clothing line. And that’s my man [laughs]. You know, that’s my baby. And I put all my energy into that. And really, just having a goal, or maybe a hobby, or just focusing on something else, really helped me. My clothing line is definitely something that keeps me busy, and it keeps my thoughts on that. Because [healing] is definitely a long process, and it takes a lot of work. And if your mind ain’t right, there’s no way in the world that you can accomplish something like that. So, I had to get my mind right.

Love And Hip Hop‘s Yandy And Kimbella Talk About Episode 1 On Power 105

Last night’s season premiere of Love And Hip Hop was huge in so many ways, and everyone is still talking about the punch-kicks heard round the world. The show’s newest stars, Kimbella and Yandy, appeared on The Breakfast Club on Power 105 to hash out some of the details of what went down last night. Kimbella, who felt the wrath of Chrissy when she got sucker-punched at the end of the episode explains that Chrissy is, in fact the biggest reason she wanted to do the show. Kimbella says she “wanted to meet Chrissy, more than anyone else,” and has no idea to this day whether Chrissy had a preexisting beef with her before Kimbella admitted to dating Fabolous. And as for why Kimbella even brought that up, she said she was “in the moment,” but that she did it on camera for the sake of the show. Watch the entire feisty interview here.

Jackie Christie, The Marrying Kind: He Loves Me, She Loves Me Not

Basketball Wives L.A. star Jackie Christie has graciously offered to write a column for the VH1 blog with the advice and wisdom she’s picked up after years of marriage to retired NBA star Doug Christie. The Christies’ relationship has been inspirational for many of their peers, and they’ve never compromised it, they put family and each other ahead of everything else. The pair wrote a book, No Ordinary Love, together and we’re glad that Jackie has chosen to share even more of her words of wisdom as a true basketball wife with us each week. This week: He loves me, she loves me not!
