On one of the earlier episodes of “Love and Hip Hop New York,” the internets were buzzing with talk about Darryl Strawberry’s daughter, Diamond, and the fact that she was calling her daughter a dog to keep her raggedy boyfriend from knowing about her existence.  Well recently, in an interview with Hello Beautiful Diamond sat down to clarify a few things and explain why she lied, how her relationship with Cisco failed and more. Take a look at what she had to say in the quotes below.

What her father Darryl Strawberry thinks of his daughter being on the show. 

He doesn’t really agree with me being on but he supports my decision. His phone is blowing up all day and night but he just encourages me to be strong through all the b.s., everything the show puts me through.

The Dog Reference 

If there’s one thing I wish I could take back in the season so far is the dog reference to my daughter. Anybody that knows me, knows that my daughter is my world! I love that little girl to death. And the funny thing is when Cisco and I used to talk on the phone my dogs would really be in the background, yipping and yapping. My daughter would be there too, I’m not going to lie. But I just really wish that I could take that back. I’m a damn good mom. I give my first, last and everything to my daughter. People don’t know me. They get bits and pieces of me for an hour every night. So the people that know me, know what kind of mother I am.

Why she moved to New York 

I decided to move to New York after Cisco had been begging me for months and months to come. He promised me all these things, you know, ‘Baby, when you get here I have all of these modeling gigs lined up for you. My friend is the publisher of this magazine and we’re going to get you on the cover of this magazine…full spread here.’

Cisco’s lies

Learning that Cisco had a child was very hard for me. I was pissed. I felt like when I told him I had my daughter, that was the perfect opportunity for him to step up and say ‘You know what I cheated on you matter of fact, I had a baby.’ So for him to flip out on me, put me through all these changes when he’s hiding an even bigger secret, it’s f*8ked up. It’s not like I cheated on him. My daughter was four when I met him. Yeah, I withheld information. I should not have done that and I will never do it again but what he did is f*cked up.

I do no regret not introducing her to Cisco because look at what happened. He turned out to be a complete f*ck up. If anything, I protected my daughter. She always comes first. She came first in that situation so no, I don’t regret it.

Her group home

I am the face of a hair company, it’s called Echelon hair. I’m actually the co-founder of a group home for pregnant teens, runaways, victims of abuse. It’s in Los Angeles, it’s called A Safe Place Youth Center. That group home is my baby. I was there from day 1 when we were just thinking about doing it. It’s so dear to my heart because I was a teen mother. I know exactly how it feels to feel like you’ve let people down, you’ve let yourself down and to feel like your only identity is going to be having babies. I feel like I can relate to these girls so much and I just want to encourage and inspire them to push and be and do all that they can for themselves and their children.
