Music and talent manager-turned-reality star and business woman Yandy Smith covers the August/September issue of DELUX magazine. She looks summer time fine in a bright yellow dress on the cover. Inside, she talks about Love & Hip Hop and her brand. This issue hits newsstands August 1st, below are some excerpts:

Here’s what she candidly had to say about the show and her brand…
“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.”
Yandy Smith recently launched her lifestyle website, YandySmith.Com, which is described as “a multi-dimensional community for fans focused around fashion, fitness, beauty, pop culture, family life and everything in between“. The successful business woman added, “I’m excited to share YandySmith.Com with the world! My life is so full between being a Mom and businesswoman, it will be great to share my life outside of Love & Hip Hop on the site“.
Yandy owns the digital magazine, Everything Girls Love, jewelry and clothing line. She’s also the Executive Producer of Life, Love, Soul; and independent film that premiered in theaters in 2012.
