EXCLUSIVE PICS: Mashonda, Emily B., Olivia, & More At Their VH1 "Love & Hip-Hop" Reality Show Premiere Party

TheYBF.com was on the scene at last night's VH1 "Love & Hip-Hop" reality show premiere party at District 36 in NYC.

 

We've got exclusive pics of the fab cast members (left-right) Somaya Reece, singer Olivia Longott, Jim Jones' girlfriend Chrissy Lampkin, Fabolous' girlfriend Emily B., and Mashonda partying it up...and they all receive a lil something special from Mr. Jones.  Check out our pics and tidbits from our chat with the cast when you read on...

Mashonda, who tells us she's definitely single, hit her partying looking fabulous in head to toe Alexander McQueen.  She's moved on from the love triangle involving her ex-husband Swizz Beatz and his new wife Alicia Keys.  Clearly appearing to be in a good place right now, the self proclaimed YBF fan told us that we are going to see her perseverance and growth as a result of her adversity. 

And what she wants everyone to  know: "I used to wake up nervous to read the blogs, but YBF and the readers always had positive stuff to say. What I went through was tough but I made it through."

Fabolous' girlfriend and baby's mother Emily B., who rocked a black Herve Leger dress, wants everyone to know she's more than just that label.  The Puerto Rican and Dominican stylist tell us everyone will see her working on her career--something she's had for years now.  Even though she and Fab have been together for 8 years and share son Johan, during the course of their relationship, she chose to not do red carpet events or be in the spotlight with Fab.

"Dating a rapper is really hard and you have to have tough skin."

And whether we'll see "Basketball Wives" style drama on the show:

I don't have a problem with any of the girls, but there WILL be some drama.  I'm the only cast member with a child, so I had to be careful about what I did."

So whose relationship does she admire most?  Well, when Jim Jones walked in during our interviews and handed all the ladies roses, Emily gushed:

"He's such a sweet and nice guy! I really admire Jim and Chrissy's relationship. They really love each other."

Sweet.

 

Chrissy was spotted chatting with friends.

 

Olivia and her blinding makeup rocked a grey and black Bebe dress.  Didn't love homegirl's makup, but she's a sweet peacemaker who just wants to show her love for music.  We asked her about her beef with former bestie 50 Cent, and she responded:

"I recently spoke to 50 and there is no beef between us and honestly never has been."

What the single lady hates about the music game:

"Anyone can come in and get a deal. I grew up in the church and I want people to see throught he show my talents.  I'm excited about my up and coming music ventures."

Hmmm.

And rapper hopeful Somaya Reece, who wore Jovani Courture, dished to us about coming to America with only a suitcase and a dream.  And now, she wants to show everyone her grind and how she's trying to become a rap chick and she's already shot a couple vids.  Her music is "a blend of hip hop, latin, and reggaeton."

She says she hates the negativity and drama in the female rap game right now, but...she revealed her own feisty "Latin side" had to come out a few times on the show.

"Love & Hip Hop" premieres March 21st on VH1.  Will you be watching?

CHRISSY IM GOING TO GIVE YOU

CHRISSY IM GOING TO GIVE YOU THE SAME ADVICE IM GIVING EMILY. STOP SETTLING FOR A NIGGA. NEXT STOP BEING A DORMAT FOR A NIGGA. HAVE MORE SELF WORTH THAN THAT. HAVE MORE SELF RESPECT THAN TO ACCEPT NIGGA BEHAVIOR. JIM JONES AND FABOLOUS ARE BOTH BEING NIGGA'S. REALLY THE KIND THAT SOME YT PPL MENTION. THEY HELP DEGRADE THE BLACK COMMUNITY. AND DON'T CONTRIBUTE TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY (being decent people) BUT SUBTRACT FROM THE BLACK COMMUNITY (enhance negative stereotypes about us). NOT BEING ABOUT FAMILY. HITTING EVERY WOMAN THEY CAN FIND. GIVING EVERYONE STD'S AND DRIVING UP THE HIV CASES IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY. MAKING BABIES BUT NOT BEING FATHERS (AND THIS IS SO SO VERY SAD). BEING WITH WOMEN BUT NOT A FAMILY. NOT RESPECTING WOMEN. AND AS HURTFUL AS THAT IS, DISRESPECTING WOMEN IN PUBLIC. THESE ARE NIGGA'S. GET RID OF YOUR NIGGA'S. AND GET YOURSELVES TOGETHER.

I thought Olivia was Ciara

I thought Olivia was Ciara and, that white lipstick is a FAIL. Jim Jones girlfriend Chrissy does look very old from the side in that pic where she's sitting on the couch with that woman. I though Somaya Reese was a drag queen when I 1st saw her up close pic. #ahotmess Fabulous girlfriend Emily B is thick as hell! I knowww he be fucking the shit outta her. I am a woman and I have a woodie looking @ her body lol. She is so so so thick and sexy. #voluptuous Mashonda looks good! She does look better than Alicia Keys and, I can't understand why Swizz Beats left her. She's hot.

Yea Emily, you "chose" not to

Yea Emily, you "chose" not to be in the spotlight...LMAO, you need more people. And I though Mashonda was her girl, how do you make a comment that your the only one with a child? Last I checked Mashonda has a son...Emily seems like a total airhead...Mashonda looks great though, but the rest of them, except for Olivia, need not wear those tight dresses with those bodies...ewww

REAL BLACK WOMEN.. SIZE 8 AND

REAL BLACK WOMEN.. SIZE 8 AND UP!! I like this a lot!! tired of seeing the plastic type! You can tell the antics of hip hop has taken a toll on them.. You can see it in their eyes.. STILL BEAUTIFUL THOUGH!!
MISS BRONX NY's picture

So, black women who are size

So, black women who are size 2, 4, and 6 aren't "real black women"? Are they what you call the "plastic type"? Black women come in all sizes, not just size 8 and up. In fact, 4 out of 5 black women are overweight and at risk for high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and and heart disease

Mashonda look gorgeous. I'm

Mashonda look gorgeous. I'm glad to hear she's doing well and moving on to bigger and better things. On a side note, how can someone be both "Puerto Rican and Dominican?" She can only be born in one place. If her parents are from those places, that does not make her a citizen of those places if she was born in the US.
Anonymous's picture

What a stupid comment and

What a stupid comment and question to ask combined!!...Of course she is Dominican and Puerto Rican...That is her ETHNICITY therefore being born in America does not remove that fact. Her Nationality will be the USA if she was born there...To put it clearly Ethnicity and Nationality are to entirely DIFFERENT things...Pick up a book please.

People need to stop talking

People need to stop talking about Alicia whenever Mashondas name is brought up and vice versa. They are 2 different people. Alicia is a super star celeb that slept with mashondas husband. Mashonda was a wife/mother. Let them both just deal with their lives. Im sure its tuff enough having to deal with the fact that you will go down in history not only for being a grammy winner but also for being a mistress. And Mashoonda will have to deal with all the nonsense that swizz has caused her and her son publically. They both have issues.

Why didn't you just say what

Why didn't you just say what you wanted to say about AK instead of trying to mask it behind being civil. SMDH, such an idiot, to you idiot black people that is what you will remember to the rest of the world, she will be remembered for the Artist, Philanthrapist and genuinely nice person that she is. You idiot.
