I’ve worked with Puff Daddy, Biggie Smalls, Junior Mafia, DMX, Eve, Ja Rule, Ashanti, Irv Gotti… I’ve dated these guys, I’ve slept with them, I’ve worked for them. I know the girlfriend, I know the baby mother, I know the wife. I even know the side chick.
And then she reveals to Jen that she has written a book:
Jen Bayer [JB]: A book? A book about what?
WR: It’s a tell all of my experiences in the music industry — guys that I’ve dated … It’s the truth. It’s all the truth.
JB: What kind of stories?
WR: I mean, just who I’ve worked for —
JB: Like sexcapades?
WR: Yeah, there’s a few of them in there. I mean, it makes it juicy. And it’s real s***. The whole idea of me writing this book, and the person who put this s*** in my head, is Jadakiss. And he’s a big part of the book. I’m going to tell. Why not?
JB: Are you worried?
WR: I’m not worried. I mean, what they gonna do? You gonna beat me up?
JB: Somebody might want to beat you up.
WR: I wish a motherf***er would!
JB: Somebody might.
WR: I ain’t got time for that s***, I’m a grown woman. If you wanna come over here and start something acting like a nut job, ???? hot, that’s on you!
