This past Wednesday (December 14), Pynk Magazine and OR-G Liqueur held a celebration for Emily B of Love & Hip-Hop at Veranda restaurant and lounge in New York City. A few industry journalists, influencers, blogger as well as singers Bridget Kelly and Teairra Mari attended this invited only event. I was not there because I was at another engagement in Atlanta, which I will have more on soon. I am hearing that Emily’s event was nice and the people sipped signature cocktails, and dined on delicious French fare. NecoleBITCHIE.com caught up with Emily for a brief conversation. Below are some experts:
You just wrapped season 2 of Love & Hip Hop, but there doesn’t seem to be much love happening right now.
You know, that’s my biggest problem with the show. It really only shows the negative in our relationships. I realize that it’s from my point of view but then the show paints Fab as this bad guy. They never mention all of the positive things he does. Fab does a LOT of community work, he has a non-profit and he’s a wonderful father.
Do you think that’s one of the main reasons he refused to participate in the show?
No. Actually Fab didn’t want to do the show because he felt like he wouldn’t have any equity in it. He feels like he’s at a place in his career where he should have some ownership in everything that he does. That was the main reason why he won’t do it.
Now you know the long-running speculation that your decision to do the show lead to the end of your relationship.
That’s not true at all. In fact, Fab and I shot a VH1 pilot ourselves, before Love & Hip Hop came along.

Really? What was the premise?
The show was supposed to just be about Fab, myself and our kids. Most people don’t know that. But yeah, there’s a pilot out there somewhere with the four of us. And Fab is working on his own…You know what, I’ll stop there (laughs)
So what is happening between you and Fab? Are you guys back together?
No. Fab and I are cool. That’s it. We’re raising our son.
So then what’s up with your love life?
What love life? It’s non-existent. I’m in that weird in between stage where I’m not where I was, but I’m also not ready to date anyone else.
When you are ready, will you date another rapper?
Absolutely not. I would prefer not to date anyone else in the music industry. I’d like to date someone with a normal life, like a school teacher. In fact there’s a teacher at my daughters school that I have a little crush on…I’m just kidding.
