What were these celebrities thinking when they made these silly comments? Did they really think the other person would laugh it off or not react. We’re sure they will think twice before they open their big mouths again or do something else outrageous.

You know, sometimes we have the one that we just don’t want to get away. Maybe we think they’re our “true love” or maybe it’s the “blinding” sex but we’ve got to keep that “one” around. Celebrities are no different and they want to keep that “ol’ thang” around them. Check out some celebs who go back and forth to their flames. What other celebs keep breaking up and making up?
Former “Love & Hip Hop” star, Emily B appears to have had an amazing week as she celebrated her February 9th birthday over the course of the past six days. Among the festivities were multiple parties, including one celebration at Pink Elephant in New York City and box seats at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center with boyfriend Fabolous. The couple also spent Valentine’s Day together, celebrating at The Noir with pal Adrienne Bailon. Both Fab and Adrienne used their social networking pages to show Em some love.
“ Happy Birthday Emily!!!!!!! If only people REALLY understood the friendship we have… Our long talks & the laughter we’ve shared over the years! I’m blessed to call you a friend… AKA Sister Wife! To a new year of Life, Love, & Blessings! @Emilyb #HBD #Friendship #Aquarius Great Times,” Bailon tweeted.
Of course, Adrienne’s “sister wife” reference doesn’t help the rumor that she and Em take turns with Fab, but we’ll pretend we didn’t see that, for now. Fab also utilized his Instagram page to send his boo some flirty birthday love.
“Happy Birthday to @emilyb_!! I love basketball, good movies, fly clothes, nice cars, vodka, and YOU!”
Em also sent out a few tweets, letting it be known that she was celebrating her man.
It seems like things have been looking up for Fabolous and Emily since her departure from VH1′s “Love & Hip Hop”. He even appears to be somewhat claiming her these days…Although, there is the questionable song, “Want You Back” with Joe Budden and Teyana Taylor that he released back in December, which many speculate is about Em…
But, who can really keep up with these two?
In a very clear nod to former girlfriend aka “the closest thing to a wife,” Tahiry, Joe Budden recently solicited the help of fellow artists to jump on his new single. The song, which sounds a lot like “I’m On One,” features fellow rappers Fabolous and Lil Wayne. R&B crooner Tank is singing on the hook. As much as I wanted to dislike the song, it wasn’t half bad. And I could see myself dancing to it if it makes its way to the club circuit.

In case you were actually waiting around for Karrine Steffans to finish composing her super emotional and most likely über explicit memoir about her relationship with Lil Wayne, it looks like there will be another Hip Hop tell-all book hitting the streets soon to hold you over. At least until Karrine is done pouring out her soul on the pages of How To Make Love To A Martian. It seems that “Love and Hip Hop” star Winter Ramos, whom we will learn more about during tonight’s episode, is planning to release a tell-all book of her own entitled Game Over: My Love for Hip Hop. If you’re having a hard time recalling which one Winter is, she’s the one who made a couple of cameos last season as the assistant of rapper Fabolous.
The memoir is said to shed light on what it was like for her working in the music industry and of course, expose a few of her famous former lovers. The book’s description reads:
In Game Over, Winter puts all of her emotions on the page leaving no experience, emotional abuse, or former lover uncovered. From her days as assistant to rapper, Fabolous and friend to Jadakiss, to appearing on Love and Hip Hop and being Creative Costume Designer for Flavor unit Films, Winter delivers a tell-all book on her famous ex-lovers and experiences in the music industry. As the chick that was always in the mix and cool with everyone, Winter was privy to the cray beyond the videos, private flights, and limos that the cameras caught for us. Her reality and theirs was no game. Game Over is Winter’s cautionary tale for the next generation of young women who believe that the fabulous lives of celebrities unveiled in blogs and on reality television shows are all FIRE! Stay tuned, because this GAME is about to get real.
During tonight’s episode, she introduces herself in a rather questionable way that somewhat implies that she plans on spilling a lot of tea.
“I’m Winter Ramos. You guys may know me as Fab’s assistant, but I’ve been in the music industry for a really long time. I’ve worked with Puff Daddy, Biggie Smalls, Junior Mafia, DMX, Eve, Ja Rule, Ashanti, Irv Gotti… I’ve dated these guys, I’ve slept with them, I’ve worked for them. I know the girlfriend, I know the baby mother, I know the wife. I even know the side chick.”
She also revealed that her “friend” Jadakiss, who is also a rather large part of the book is actually the one who suggested that she pen the tell-all. The book’s release date is April 2nd.
Many feel that the whole concept of women coming out and exposing industry insiders is completely played. But I believe that for every tell-all, there’s a nosy person who will buy it.
Check out a sneak peek of tonight’s episode on the next page to see Winter discuss her book. Are you at all interested in what she has to say in her book?
Talk about cute!
Emily B is no stranger to shade thrown at her for pics she’s posted on Instagram – particularly when those images are of her and Fab and she’s commenting on how in love she is with her man — but this image here is worth all smiles.
Yesterday, Em posted pics of her with her little man and her big man at her son’s school, possibly proving Fab isn’t quite as bad as he was made to seem on “Love & Hip-Hop.” At the very least he’s active in his son’s life, but if I’m not mistaken, I’m also peeping a matching leather game going on between the parents, which I’m sure is no coincidence since Emily just happens to be her boo’s stylist.
Anyway, I love that everyone is all smiles in this photo, which makes me wonder just what the status of Em and Fab’s relationship is and if big happy family thoughts are going through their heads right now. Since she didn’t caption this pic, why don’t you?
Without Emily B.’s presence on “Love & Hip-Hop” it’s been hard to keep up with her relationship with Fabolous — although she has dropped his name a time or two on Chrissy and Jim Jones’ new VH1 reality show spin-off. Many still assume the pair is still together (or something like that), or at the very least Emily is still wishing on a star to finally be claimed, but today on “The Combat Jack Show” we got a bit of an update on the two, and interestingly it came from Fab.
Though the radio interview was focused on the rapper’s upcoming music projects, the hosts definitely took the opportunity to ask Fab about the status of his relationship with Emily and whether he has any plans to put a ring on it. As expected, his answers sound pretty typical of a 34-year-old who’s not ready to settle down. Here are a couple snippets.
Status of his relationship with Emily
We great. I think me and Emily situation through the show got tainted through the public view cause it was really a one sided story. It’s entertainment, at the end of the day. I did tell her, if you want to do that show, you have to be mindful of what’s going on. A lot of girls go into those shows not knowing exactly what they are getting into. Some of the scenarios are sprung on them, so it’s like ‘Oh, wow.’ They have to react, and that’s why [the producers] do it, because it gets them a real honest reaction because they don’t know what’s about to happen. You still have to be mindful that you’re on TV and you’re saying things. They cut and edit what you say well, so you might say a whole paragraph, but if you say one little thing that’s juicy enough, ‘Yeah lets get that part.’
Me and Emily are good, we are in a great place, we are raising a little boy together.
Whether marriage is in the future
I don’t think marriage is in the future for me right now man, I really don’t. The thing about marriage is that I believe in it and don’t believe in it. I think people put that ring and that paper and it messes up a good thing sometimes. Now it’s a different emphasis on your relationship. Now you can say, ‘If I’m married, it’s on paper and I walk away, this is that and this is this’. So I like to just build on relationships and make sure that you’re in a happy relationship and if it leads to that.
I know a lot of people look at certain relationships, celebrity relationships, and say, ‘Aw look at Jay and Bey’ and I think even that relationship, it took time. Jay is 40 years old, and he waited until he felt it was right. Even when they first got together, it wasn’t a public thing. They were denying they were a couple when everybody knew they were a couple at first. [...] They just made sure their base was strong before they made it public and I think that’s the kind of thing you have to do in a relationship.
Do you think Fabolous and Emily are really great?
I’m Gone…But I’ll Be Back: Why Emily and Mimi Are In The Same Exact Boat (Whether They Like It Or Not)
While browsing Necole Bitchie not too long ago, I came across the most laughable post. Emily, from the original “Love & Hip Hop” was quoted as saying that she has issues with being compared to the women of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” namely Mimi Faust. Emily claimed,
“You know I get a little upset when they compare characters because I’m nothing like any of those women. My story is not like any of those stories. I don’t see Fab in any of those men in that show at all. No offense to them, but nobody knows [how it is]. Y’all get to see the Stevie J’s and the Lil’ Scrappy’s and nobody really knows who Fab is or what he does or what he’s about. People just make assumptions and it really bothers me because he was never on camera for you to make that assumption so people really don’t know.”
I think Emily forgets all the montages of her crying and complaining about Fab’s indiscretions. Remember the infamous scene where she was left to do a family shoot without him? I certainly do. Obviously, those of us who watch do not know the intricacies of her relationship with the father of her child, but we have seen and heard enough (especially from Emily herself) to know that she really is no different than Mimi of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.”
Emily is in the same boat as Mimi because their lack of self-esteem allows them to put up with emotionally daunting issues in their relationships. Infidelity and abandonment constitutes as emotional abuse in my book, and due to having a low image of themselves, these women return to relationships that serve them these matters in heaping sizes. If Emily was in a healthy relationship, that was preserved behind close doors and not in front of the world on VH1, of course everyone would find such comparisons to be ludicrous. But this is not the case.
Emily and MiMi have made these men their world; forging their careers on their lackluster relationships for the world to see. They both have had to deal with past (and in Mimi’s case, present) mistresses in scenes that force me to label their shows as, “As The ‘Hood Turns.” So please tell me what Emily is getting upset about, because she shares so many similarities with these other women. If anything, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is probably forcing her to look in a mirror to face the pain and humiliation she has called her reality for so long.
Emily’s malady is that she uses other people’s issues as a barometer to judge her own. She truly believes that Mimi is in a completely different vessel than her, because of the drama playing out with Stevie J and Joseline. Emily’s mentality of “oh, we’re not THAT bad,” stifles her growth and clouds her vision. She’s looking at the minute details of Mimi’s fiasco of a relationship and disregarding the bigger issue, which is that the main themes that dominate Mimi’s storyline have also dominated hers. We saw on last night’s season finale that Mimi pulled the same stunt as Emily did at the end of season one of the original L&HH: she let it be known that she wasn’t going to put up with her man’s bull anymore. But of course, we’ve already seen Mimi and Stevie walking around town together, pretending to be paparazzi darlings, while Stevie continues to suck face and grab a** with Joseline in front of cameras too. It’s just like when Emily played Miss Independent in season two and then was seen defending her relationship with Fab and Instagraming photos of the two together after the fact. Same boats, just different captains.
I think we all know someone like Emily. The person who tries to bring attention to the leaves scattered in your yard, while paying no mind to the dead tree lying in theirs. After reading her quote on Necole’s site and watching last night’s finale of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” I smirked and muttered, “Denial is not only a river in Egypt.” But now, I may also add to this well-worn cliche – Denial is also a defense mechanism for the broken.

Looking at the relationships as they play out on “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta,” one could easily assume that the apple doesn’t fall too far from the New York tree, but Emily B. begs to differ. In a recent interview with Hello Beautiful, she was asked how she feels about people saying LHHATL is the same formula as LHHNY and that she and Mimi are essentially two hopeless peas in an unfaithful pod and here’s a bit of what she had to say:
You know I get a little upset when they compare characters because I’m nothing like any of those women. My story is not like any of those stories. I don’t see Fab in any of those men in that show at all. No offense to them, but nobody knows [how it is]. Y’all get to see the Stevie J’s and the Lil’ Scrappy’s and nobody really knows who Fab is or what he does or what he’s about. People just make assumptions and it really bothers me because he was never on camera for you to make that assumption so people really don’t know.
Comparing her to Mimi
I mean I spoke to Mimi and watching her I felt for her. I understand how it feels to love someone and feel that pain, but I’ve never been through anything that she’s been through. Fab only has one child with me so I don’t know what that feels like to have a man with many. I’ve never dealt with anything on that level in my life. Her story is a strong powerful story that I can’t even imagine going through.
Life after “Love & Hip-Hop”
Well right now I’m filming a spin-off to “Love & Hip Hop.” Me and Chrissy are filming a project. I won’t go into too much detail, but we have a project coming out in the Fall which is going to be a totally different. I mean, same producers but different feel–more of a family fun -loving show.
What she wants people to know about her
I think people have a misconception of what they saw on the show. You know that was over two years of filming and I’m totally different person because of it. And I think people think I’m laid-back. I’m not shy. I speak my mind. I’m boisterous! You can’t edit that.
Whether we’ll see that side her in her new show
Yeah I’m myself, totally. I’m not in that situation [anymore] so I have no reason to be that other girl that you guys saw [on Love & Hip Hop].
Situation is an interesting term. I wonder if she’s eferring to the show or to her relationship with Fabolous. I suppose we’ll have to tune in and see. What do you think about the “Love & Hip-Hop” cast comparisons? Are Emily and Mimi cut from the same cloth?
