“They’re into: who you’re with, what you’re doing with the person you’re with, what club you’re going to, who’s fighting with who… that’s the kind of stuff they’re interested in,” rattles off Yandy Smith with a distinct New York cadence and accent. But that’s not what the Harlem native is about. Yes, she’s the star of the top-rated and much blogged about Love & Hip Hop, so she’s enthralled in ever-present antics. But any drama you get from Yandy is “going to be infused with some work and some business stuff because I’m more about that than anything else,” she says. “If they could get all of who you’re fighting and who you’re sleeping with, that’s what [the producers] would do. That’s what they would show. But you’re not going to get much of that with me.”

In the offseason—and even when the cameras are rolling—Yandy is well aware of how her actions will affect the empire she’s building. So what you will get from the mini-mogul is a mother, mentor, and self-described “businesswoman” dedicated to expanding “the Yandy brand.”
