Looks like the "Love & Hip Hop" chicks are taking full advantage of their tv time and starting new ventures they can pub in between beat downs and catfights.
Check out Yandy Smith's new magazine venture called EGL, where she ironically focuses on positivity, inside...
In between managing models and rappers and trying to break up fights, "Love & Hip Hop" star Yandy Smith started a new venture. She says she's all about being a positive role model to women and young girls. So Yandy and her girlfriends have created their own magazine and jewel line called EGL.
To bring in the new year, she tapped singer/writer and fab chick Mashonda, former "Love and Hip Hop" castmate to be on the cover of her January 2012 issue (above).
Here's some behind the scenes and actual shots from the shoot with Yandy, Mashonda, and stylist Samantha Telfair, wife to basketball player Sebastian Telfair. Plus a snippet of Mashonda's interview:
Loves Mashonda's look though. She had a conversation with Yandy for her cover story:
So, tell us what life has been like after Love and Hip Hop?
"Life has been great, completely different to say the least. My reality on that show was authentic and totally real. I’m glad that segment of my life is over; it was very melancholic. Being on "Love and Hip Hop" opened my eyes to many things in my life, on and off the screen.
The moment you let go of whatever is negative in your life is the same moment you breathe.”
