Today, I made my way over to Barnes & Noble to see Amina Buddafly Pankey who is best known for her role in VH1’s Love & Hip Hop NY. Amina was in ATL (Buckhead) to promote her new book The Other Woman which is a perfect read for everyone who has watched her on TV over the years and those who are curious to learn more about her story.
I’ve watch the show and was immediately drawn to Amina because she reminded me of myself. She was helplessly in love with Peter Gunz who had already his feet in a few ponds. Amina was such beautiful young lady with so much talent and passion… all she wanted was true love but found herself in a web of heartbreak. A little bit of joy and many tears seemed to be the essence of her story line. I went through the SAME type of turmoil with my boyfriend (before I met & married my prince) and remember the feeling of helplessness & utter disbelief of ALL the deceit and lies. Can I get a witness??
I asked Amina one burning question… OMG, thought I had it on video but FAILED to record. 🙁
RobinLori: I watched & related to you on the show because you were like a delicate rose helplessly in love. Tell me where you are today. How are you??
Amina: Oh thank you so much… I’m much better. No more tears and all that crying. I’m happy with life, work and of course my little one. In the book I write about who I am as a person and why I fought for love over the years.
RobinLori: I truly wish the best for you and look forward to hearing your music!
Anima was such a delight signing books and answering questions from the press. Here’s a few pics I snapped of Amina & fans, her beautiful baby girl and a photo of PETER who stopped by to support! Dang it, I had to leave early & didn’t get that photo opt. Sending a very special thanks to publisher, Ardre Orie (13th & Joan Publishing) for the invite.
THE OTHER WOMAN also features lyrics never seen or heard from many of the songs that Buddafly has written over the years. Be sure to pick up your copy at Barnes & Nobles, Amazon and more!
