Emily Bustamante of "Love & Hip Hop" is not cool with people comparing her to Mimi Faust.
Emily is not happy that people tend to see her in Mimi’s situation with Stevie J. The stylist told HipHopWired.com that although she can identify with Mimi, her relationship with Fab is far different than Mimi’s romantic woes.
“You know, I get a little upset when they compare characters because I’m nothing like any of those women," Emily said. "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]."
Emily added that the public really has no way of knowing what Fab is like because he’s very private and would likely not do a reality show. Stevie J by comparison is letting everyone in on all of his business every week.
"Y’all get to see the Stevie Js and the Lil’ Scrappys and nobody really knows who Fab is or what he does or what he’s about," Emily stated. "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.”
Whle she may think she and Mimi don’t have anything in common, Emily said she can sympathize with the struggle to maintain a relationship in hip-hop. “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," Emily explained.
She added, "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.”
