Love & Hip Hop New York’s Yandy Smith continues to make moves in cyber space. The reality star officially launched her new lifestyle website at YandySmith.com. Described as,

a multi-dimensional community for fans focused around fashion, fitness, beauty, pop culture, family life  and everything in between

The goal of the site is to offer accessible insight and wisdom, and engage women with giveaways, contests and user-generated content. Yandy confirmed the news, stating:

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.

The mother of one is also covering the August/September issue of Delux Magazine explaining how fans and viewers are often into the drama of the popular VH1 show.
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. 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.
The August/September issue of Delux with YANDY hits newsstands August 1, 2013. And in other news, Drake and J.Cole are still catching heat from their insensitive lyrics about those who suffer from autism.

On Monday, J.Cole released a statement, apologizing for his lyrical content. And a day later, Drake released the following statement:

J.Cole wrote a beautiful and moving apology to individuals and families affected by autism who were understandably hurt by a verse in “Jodeci Freestyle”. I share responsibility and offer my sincerest apologies for the pain this has caused. Individuals with autism have brilliant and creative minds, and their gifts should not be disparaged or discounted. This was a learning lesson for both of us, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to try to right this wrong. J. Cole and I believe that it is the right, responsible, and respectful decision to remove the lyric from the song.
