We got picked up for a second season of "Tiny and Toya."

We also caught up with songstress Monica about her brand new reality show coming up on the network. She tells us: "I get the chance to show how I've evolved as a woman, mother, and artist. I want every young woman watching to get inspired. I want them to know that they can do whatever they put their mind to." Looks like some positivity is going to come out of this one.

YBF MINI-INTERVIEWS: Estelle & Big Boi

YBF was on the scene for the Heineken Red Star Soul Tour stop in Dallas a few nights ago. Celebs like Estelle and Big Boi were there to kick it and take the stage. And YBF's Dallas Correspondent Stacy chatted with the two for...2 minutes: YBF: You stepped off the music scene and into fashion last week. How did you enjoy Fashion Week? Estelle: Well I am tired. Very exhausted! I've been all over the place. ::sighs:: I got lots of free stuff though. I really enjoyed myself. YBF: Are there any future plans for your own fashion line? Estelle: You know what, I love fashion! Especially accessories. (She has 14kt Gold braces on her bottom row of teeth) I am actually working on my own jewelry line that will debut in the spring of next year so look out for that. YBF: Have you been homesick since leaving London? What exactly do you miss? Estelle: No I don't. Not at all. I mean don't get me wrong, I love & miss my family but I'm not homesick. I love the states. YBF: What are you thoughts on your former collaborator's outburst at the VMA's? Estelle: Kanye! (laughs) Kanye is Kanye, What can you say. I have no comment. But things just get crazy sometimes. That's my boy. YBF: So what can we expect from your third solo album. Any exciting collaborations? Estelle: Yes! Yes! Well I have about 4 more songs on the album to do and it will be done. I worked with John Legend. I've reached out to Mary J.Blige because she is one of my favorites so hopefully you will see a track with her as well. Our chit chat with Big Boi and more pics when you read the rest...

YBF MINI-INTERVIEW: Rachel Roy

YBF is still on the scene at New York fashion week.  And our NYC Correspondent Kisha caught up with fab designer Rachel Roy for a mini-chit chat (it's amazing we even got these 3 questions amidst the chaos) right before her Sunday show to chat about her Spring 2010 line: YBF: This collection has an edge to it. I'm seeing graffiti and funky jewelry with snakes. What was your inspiration for the line? Rachel Roy (RR): I wanted to have fun with this collection. I really believe graffiti is art. I collaborated with artist George "SEN One" Morillo who is a friend of mine. He created a huge canvas piece for me and it's my favorite piece of art in my house. When we started working together I was thinking, how many things can I put graffiti on? I want it on everything! YBF: In creating a moderately priced collection did you feel pressure to create trendy pieces that would appeal to the masses? RR: The only thing I felt pressure to do was create amazing pieces at affordable prices. I did not want to cut corners on quality either. I said, if I can't use superior fabrics, I do not want to do this. YBF: A majority of TheYBF readers are women. Can you tell us how you juggle being a mom and a business woman? RR: It's not easy! You have to make a conscious effort to give 100% every single day. I wake up everyday and take 15 minutes to myself and think about what kind of day I want to have. But believe it or not, I've learned a lot from Oprah. (laughs) It might sound funny but I really listen to her. In her magazine she has a section called What I Know For Sure. I always read it and I learn something every time. We caught a few shots of her Spring '10 line under the jump....
