Mashonda is letting it all hang out on the May/June cover of King Magazine. Currently starring in the new VH1 reality series Love & Hip-Hop the former Mrs. Swizz Beatz had a lot to say in the accompanying interview. Check out some of the highlights:

ON HER ROLE WITH EMILY (FABOLOUS’ GIRLFRIEND):

“I’m like her support system, her counselor. I feel like a female Dr. Phil. That person who gives her advice and is not afraid to tell her my story and show her my life, ’cause I really want her to get hers together.”

ON WHETHER IT WAS AWKWARD BEING EMILY’S SHOULDER TO LEAN ON:

“At the time that we shot, I was in a great place, so that’s what made the difference. I felt like that was my therapy, and that’s all I wanted to do. Anytime I’d log in to Facebook or Twitter, there would be tons of women reaching out to me, thanking me for sharing my story. Those messages gave me a lot of strength, a lot of courage. From that point on, I just wanted to help women, and Emily being a good friend of mine, it was easy for me to go on there and talk to her and be honest.”

ON WHETHER SHE’S BEEN ON ANY RECENT DATES:

“I have. I recently went on a date, and it was incredible.”

ON HER “LOYALTY” TATTOO:

“I got it a year after everything started going downhill. It’s a reminder to me that I have to be loyal to myself for once. I was so loyal to everyone, and I totally forgot about me. This is what it represents—it represents loyalty to self. Now I have to do things that I love to do, and I have to make myself happy, because I don’t really agree when people say, ‘I need a man ’cause I want to be happy,’ or ‘I’m not happy because I don’t have a man.’ That’s not where it starts. Happiness starts from within, and that’s in my focus.”

That’s all well and good, but this is what she really wanted to say: “I got tatted up with the word ‘Loyalty’ because that’s what Swizz couldn’t give me!! Sorry muthaf*cka!”

I’m just saying…
