She then gravitated toward the radio industry and soon landed her own radio show on Eminem’s Shade 45 before joining Power 105’sBreakfast Club‘. Because of the success of the ‘Breakfast Club‘ others doors opened for Yee including reality TV. She was one of the cast members on VH1’s Gossip Game. In a recent interview with Vibe Vixen, Yee talked about her career, dating life and reality TV. Below are some highlights:

Was reality TV cracked up to what you thought it would be?
I knew reality TV would be difficult after watching what some of my friends went through. People get to see your personality edited down at the network’s mercy, so it’s usually not an accurate description of who you are. And the reality is, with location releases and close friends, colleagues and family who don’t want to be on a show, it’s hard to depict your real life. On the positive side, it definitely makes you more visible which can award you better opportunities, if you behave yourself.

When it comes to your love life, do you see yourself ending up with someone who’s in your industry or completely outside of it?
It’s hard to tell. I’ve dated mostly guys who have corporate jobs and there’s always the issue of them thinking my job is easy. If you’re professional then your job should seem easy but the truth is that going out to events, hosting parties and getting up for work at 4 a.m. takes a toll. I don’t always have the energy to keep my schedule going, and it’s irritating when you date someone who makes snide comments like, ‘You get off work at 10 and sleep all day.’ I get off around noon usually and have some days that are packed with meetings and nighttime events. When I fall asleep, I crash. Dating someone in the industry is sometimes easier if they also have a flexible schedule, but you just have to keep your relationship your business because people will definitely want to weigh in.

How do you manage such an intense schedule and keep the energy flowing?
I feel best when I get to go running or hit the gym, but sometimes I just have no time. Every morning I drink green tea and try to eat fruits or other things that will keep my energy up. I stay away from caffeine. I’ve never even tried coffee. I’m scared that it will have me buzzing then I’ll come down from it. And whenever I have any down time I sleep sleep sleep. It’s orgasmic to me.

As a woman who is well-respected, regardless of any rumors that may come about, what advice would you give women just starting out in the industry now?
Be careful who you consider your friends and don’t take rumors too seriously. It happens to everyone, and if you’re going to harp on what people think or say about you, you may not be cut out for this. But fundamentally, make smart decisions. We all mess up, but only deal with guys who respect you and who you consider to be your friend.

What’s next for you after The Gossip Game?
I’m working on developing my own show, which will be fun and I’ll be in control of. My foundation is radio though. The Breakfast Club is now syndicated on the weekend in 46 markets and counting. I can sense that there are bigger things that will happen in radio as well.
