Finally Fabolous speaks on Emily, Kimbella and the whole reality television situation.
Here are some excerpts from his interview with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez in NY on Friday. It actually made him sound like he has more love for Emily than we could have ever imagined.
So what does he think about “Love & Hip-Hop”?
"It’s just one-side of what’s going on. I don’t bash it but I’m not really in support of it either. I don’t think it depicts me the way I am; it just depicts a one-sided version of what’s really going on".
So why exactly didn't anyone know about his relationship with Emily?
"As a celebrity, you have to have some type of piece of your personal life. Look at Jay-Z and Beyonce; everybody knew Jay and Beyonce were dating. They were sitting around at award shows together like they weren’t together for a while before they came out and said whatever. But your life doesn’t always have to be exposed. There are a lot of people whose personal lives aren’t exposed."
Angie: But your personal life has been exposed.
"I always looked at Keyshia Cole’s show and I hope this doesn’t get taken the wrong way but I felt like some of her family was getting exploited because everybody’s making money. Sometimes you have to look and say “Dang, it’s kind of making them look crazy a little bit. Would I want my mom or my sister….” I’ll still have that morality in me.I wouldn’t want to exploit anyone in my family. My son; my son’s mother. I wouldn’t even want to do a show with any of that unless we all agreed together to do it. That’s how you know the producers of that show, I wouldn’t say that they don’t care about Emily but they’re there to make entertaining television. If they can dig up a girl from four years ago who can make an interesting twist in an episode of their show then guess what, they’ll do it. "
Are you the bad guy?
"I’m not. From their depiction of what I am, I can see why people would think that but I’m also not going to bash the show and get into a verbal back and forth with my son’s mother over some people who really don’t know me and they don’t change anything in my life."
Are you and Emily in a good place?
"I think so; I think we have a great relationship as far as being a mother and father or woman and man or whatever our situation is without a title. I think we’re in a good space communicating. She’s traveled with me for my birthday; she hadn’t really did much traveling with me at all but I thought it was a time where we could hang out and get to re-getting to know each other. Now we’re at different ages; I’ve known her for years and now we have a son together; her daughter’s older. It’s a different situation so it’s kind of like regrouping but the show is entertainment, so they’re not going to show that."
Do you think Fabolous and Emily would make an interesting reality show?
