Emily Lipman

Emily is as shocked as you are by the behavior at the fashion show, and takes a minute to defend her fashion sense.

on Oct 15, 20130

Then comes the fashion show. For starters, I was shocked to see them there and then extremely offended to see them making faces when I am talking about my family. Have some respect. I don't know why they were there anyway! But, I do love how Africa called her out about it when they had their fight in the bathroom.

Oh yes, of course, the fight between Alex and Africa, I cannot believe this went down at my CHARITY fashion show. Have your argument elsewhere. I heard about this fight after the fact from Africa, and I cannot believe it went down the way it did. I am seeing this for the first time and I am in shock. I would have thought Africa would have shut it down and not fed into Alex’s nonsense.

Enough talk about the nonsense that went down, back to what really matters, my charity fashion show: Raw Love. The show was a HUGE success and we raised a ton of money for Wish for Wendy and now that you all have watched it, we are raising more awareness about cystic fibrosis. Make sure you follow me on social media and come see me at the shop in Midtown!

My families' charity, Wish for Wendy, is Oct. 26 at Alpharetta's North Park. Come join me for a beautiful day at the park watching our charity softball tournament!

Emily, you seem to be a good friend, but don't worry about Africa because she'll see what you've been saying to her about Vawn's crappy and lack of swag and hopefully, she'll move on from that. You keep doing you girl!

Stop ragging on Vawn. Africa has two eyes and can see if he's flirting with other women. It's none of your business!

Em- I think you and your family are all very lucky to have each other!  This family connection is my favorite part of your story!  

 

The rest of the cast has their ups and downs- you're a good friend to Africa- I just hope she listens to you on the subject of Vawn.  There is NO future there and he will hurt her.  You were doing that same kind of thing to your old boyfriend so I hope you have stopped it completely.  It's not nice to play with people's feelings.

 

As far as the fight at the show goes- I guess you have learned that you will need security in the future with that nutcase Alex around. Or ban her from entering!!

 

Anyhow- good luck with your new location for Raw Denim!

Emily you seem like you can throw down team up with Africa and beat the cowardly lion to the middle of next week. Please it would make for some good TV. I know this comment is so wrong but I really hate how Alex is always talking about a trust fund or being a trophy wife whatever man takes her on will be sorry.

you are very self absorbed. you blamed your worker for no reason and while you were standing there bitching and throwing a tantrum, you were doing NOTHING to help except whine on the phone. How the hell was she supposed to have control over the models when you couldn't control them yourself?? And your comment about Africa is stupid.

You pitched a fit over ALOT less at the club! But you expected Africa to sit there and be attached by Alex? You really need to look in the mirror girl... I could go on and on about you..

 

btw - I'm no Africa fan either... she over reacts to every situation, and I don't think she should have thrown you out of her party

Okay, I do like you but you have some nerve commenting about Africa not feeding into Alex's

nonsense and should have had their arguments elsewhere? First, you fed into the same type of

nonsense with Alex at Africa's BD party and second, Alex crashed your fashion show and

followed Africa into the bathroom and attacked her.  So I would think that since it was your

fashion show and you didn't have security, you should have understood Africa's situation and

apologized for what happened to her at your event.  BTW, your friend/coworker has no respect

for you and appears to be jealous of what you have, this girl I would watch closely if I were you.

U r straight up cray, but a good cray.  Loved your fashion show but Africa was attacked - have your girl's back instead of being so self absorbed.

For someone so young to be in business for herself and care about a cause the way you do, is truly admirable!

 

At the same time, if you want professional employees maybe treat them more professionally so that the expectation, sense of urgency and importance you have for the business is set in place up front.  Also, throwing hissy fits, screeching and cussing to other people (your party planner) about your employee(s) just makes you look stupid.  After all, you hired her did you not?

Loved that you were supporting and trying to bring attention to a cause that's so personal and close to your heart...very beautiful. 

 

I think it would be nice if you do another fundraiser that you consider raising the price to $10 instead, and you have your brother Andy stand up and talk a little bit about what it's been like for him to live with this disease, so it becomes more personal and engaging for people for there, and they can be more educated instead of just entertained.

 

Finally, you may really wanna examine your friendship with the other Emily because she didn't seem at all supportive or helpful when you needed her to be and she was drunk and had a bad attitude during the night of the show...it wasn't cool and I think she may be a little jealous of you.

It's awesome that you have such ambition and business sense at a young age, and a love for charity. Keep up the good work. As for Emily, there is no need to have someone work for you who can't carry out simple tasks and end up making you stressed. If an employee can't do basic things they are told, it's time to show them the door!

 

That was nice of you to look out for your girl, Africa. Good girlfriends should do that for each other. It shows that you are being a true friend and warning her about what's down the road.

Your girl Africa was attacked at your venue! Maybe you should have hired security guards!!! I really though you would have your girls back...

Nice to see someone under thirty with a great business sense and a heart for charity,  What makes the show interesting is all of you discussing your take on your romantic relationships.

 

As far as the fight in the bathroom-I am beginning to see a common denominator-and it isn't you.

Why didn't you shut it down at Africa's birthday party?? Yuck! You are annoying and I'm not feeling you OR Alex and her pet wig. Have several seats!!!

Hi Emily, You are young but clearly a very good business woman.  Continue running your store and charity,  Good job!  Thank you for being a great girlfriend in talking to Africa about Vawn, that is what real girlfriends do.  Please don't feed into that nonsense with Alex, she is very immature.

This from someone who got into a fight at Africa's event...grow up....you need to mind your own business, stop stirring the pot and focus on your own hot mess of a relationship!
