People have been talking nonstop about the DRAMA! It turns out that besides beating down Juelz Santana’s babymama Kimbella for divulging the details of her past with Fabolous, she was also trying to catch fade with her Jim Jones’ manager Yandy Smith, who is also on the show. We also see Olivia get into a fight with one of the cast members of "Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami"
Parlour Magazine caught up with Yandy and were kind enough to share a few excerpts from the interview.
Check them out below:
We heard you and Chrissy came to blows during a taping, what can you tell us?
Whenever you’re a woman in the entertainment industry, you’ve got to deal with the wives and girlfriends of your artists. I’m cool with all of my other clients and their ladies but when women have insecurities or feel threatened by your career, they act bad and if they’re a hood chick, they’ll act hood.
We love Jim here on Parlour, but sometimes women can be driven to crazy town. Have you ever seen a reason for Chrissy to be insecure, like infidelity?
Now you know I can’t answer that question, as much as I would love to, I can’t
Seeing that reality shows are a — guilty pleasure and — sometimes violent mess and “Love & Hip-Hop” is a reality show, why join the cast?
“Basketball Wives” and “Love & Hip-Hop” show women living glamorous lifestyles they didn’t work to get it, they inherited it. When I joined I was very specific that there would be no shots of my boyfriend, just me as a professional. I wanted to show you don’t have to wait for some athlete or rapper to take you home and that’s how you get it. Unfortunately there was so much drama …
Has the violence and high-ratings of “Basketball Wives” made cast members like Chrissy eager to fight this season?
Yes, I still don’t know why the fight between Chrissy and Kim happened. It was crazy, like ‘Are you looking for an Evelyn moment right now? Stop.’
You’ve stopped managing Jim because of Chrissy, what made you leave?
I care about Jim’s happiness. His mother can make her own decisions with Chrissy because that’s his mom, but he and I choose to work together, we don’t have to. It got to a point where he wouldn’t answer my phone calls if she was in the house and we had business to do. He’s doing himself a disservice. I’m not trying to stop your money because the b***h doesn’t like me.
So what do you think?
