Emily Moses who stars in Bravo's "Invite Only Cabo" found a lump in her breast just a few days before she began shooting the reality show in Mexico and is now going through radiation, TooFab has learned.
Moses is a celebrity make up artist from Australia who has worked with everyone from Paris Hilton to Black Chyna to Jared Leto, but left all of the stress behind for the summer to party with her new friends.
"Part of the reason you got to see Emily so crazy and going through so much anxiety was because three days before I left for Cabo, Joseph actually found a lump in my left breast so I had to spend that entire time wondering if I had breast cancer or not," Moses told TooFab.
"Hopefully the world will understand my craziness and my reactions and the way I handle things because I was dealing with a lot of anxiety and also the fact that I might have breast cancer, and I was also dealing with a lot of bullying and B.S. and I don’t like Mexican food so I was drinking more than I was eating so [there were] many factors involved that made me react the way I did," she said.
"What you got to see was my reaction to reality and the best part of my reality is that now that I know that I get to see that crazy bitch Emily on television, it made me spend the last six months not only fighting breast cancer and dealing with radiation but also, um, I've been doing brain training to go through my addiction and issues and all the issues I lost on camera, I really went in."
"Invite Only Cabo" gives viewers an inside look into celebrity hairstylist Larry Sims' private life as he invites six of his closest friends on a luxurious vacation in Los Cabos, Mexico. Sims is one of the most sought-after hairstylists in the entertainment industry with cliental like Queen Latifah, Tracee Ellis Ross, Lupita Nyong'o, Kerry Washington, Mary J. Blige and Gabrielle Union.
Sims' six friends that were lucky enough to get the golden ticket to Mexico are all pals from different phases of his life and they all know next-to-nothing about each other, but when he hosts them all at his luxurious home, the combination of the different personalities quickly turns into an environment of jealousy, betrayal and drama!
Here is what else she had to say about appearing on the show.
Last week Sims surprised the house with a fireball guest whom you seemed to hate. What happened between you and AJ Johnson in the past that made you flip a switch upon her arrival?
“Um honestly, she's [Johnson] always come for me at every single party and event she’s ever been present at that I've also been apart of and basically, and you know, one thing about me like I don't really entertain the drama unless I have to. So it’s just gotten to the point where like I followed and bitten my tongue so many times 'cause I know how much Larry does care for her, so I basically just tolerate it all. And I think what's even more ironic and bizarre is that she went from Bianca to me to Malaku to Jermane and every single one of Larry’s friends have always said that she's very like, one minute she’ll protect you, the next minute she'll ignore you and the next minute you don't know where you stand with her. Her biggest issue with me was the fact that because I never liked her, I just paid her no mind and I guess she's not used to being ignored so that was her issue with me. So thats very, excuse my english, completely f**king high school and I was just like for a 60-year-old woman, it was a lot, and also for being a life coach, something she could've risen above."
Do you believe Sims was wrong for giving Johnson the download on you and Agu Ukaogo’s one night stand?
“I’m not upset with Larry because I know, you know between you and I, Kamani had been texting her and I back and forth so I already knew that she was being given the inside scoop the entire time. Kamani was actually the one who threw Larry under the bus to be honest with you so that was really what happened. They just showed it the way they saw it on camera, but what had happened was Johnson had been given the inside scoop since day one. So I felt bad actually more than anything for Larry because they made it seem like he threw me under the bus when it actually wasn't Larry. I’d been thrown under the bus way before Larry had any type of doubt whatsoever."
You also got to celebrate a birthday in Paradise… What was bungee jumping in Cabo like?
“Honestly I would do it again and again and again, everybody else said they would never do it again, but me personally thats just my idea of an amazing time. I just had like adrenaline and I love to feel alive and that was pretty much the quickest way to do it and I would do it again."
Speaking of adrenaline, how high was your energy when you're boyfriend was waiting at your Mexican home to surprise you?
“Diving into the canyon didn't even come close to the adrenaline that went through my body the moment I saw Joesph’s face and realized that. I don’t think it wasn’t caught on camera but I gave every single person a look in the house like try me. I basically looked at each one of them like, 'Don't even think about it because you will be looking behind you for the rest of your life.' I’m nice until you come for anything I care about. I felt so guilty and so upset with myself that he was put in that predicament, he didn't deserve to be while the cameras were rolling. I know Joseph, he's just as fierce as I am, probably even more so like he's Turkish, that's not really somebody you want to mess with. He can scare the shit out of me and that's something really not easy to do so yeah, I would not have liked to see if anything had slipped while he was on that episode. I was just praying to God that each minute of each day that nobody would mess with that or put him in that position."
How nervous were you that someone in the house may tell your boyfriend that you cheated on him with Ukaogo the first night you were there? Who were you most cautious of?
"Just Page Six Jermane. He is the pot stirrer. He’s good for the tea, lets put it that way. I think he wants Wendy [Williams]’s job and I would love to go on the show. Him and Kamani, I was a little concerned about. Agu, I don’t think is that stupid either, I don’t know. I know exactly how he ticks and its not in his DNA."
What can we expect for the future of your relationships?
“It wasn't quite the welcome home I was looking for, lets put it that way. What was even crazier was that when we got home he said, 'Now that I have all the information, I made a decision and I can’t do this. I love you and I wish you nothing but the best, but I’m leaving and I’m not coming back.' He saw me literally have a complete mental, physical, emotional breakdown and like cry and he just saw me crumble and he looked at me and he picked me up off the floor and said, 'I’m going to the car, I’ll be right back, just wanted to f**k with me basically. We’re still together. I don't know how, but we are still together, ride or die, thats my homie, thats my better half, thats the man that makes me an honest woman, thank god for him. Oh wow, did I learned my lesson like never before."
As a reality television star you have been pretty open with your sexual contact with Agu on the show so with everything occurring on with “Bachelor in Paradise” right now, what are your thoughts about sexual contact on reality television?
“I think at the end of the day if you go on reality television and you sign that contract, be prepared to just take responsiblity for whatever the f**k happens. Part of the reason you got to see Emily so crazy and and going through so much anxiety was because three days before I left for cabo Joseph actually found a lump in my left breast so I had to spend that entire time wondering if I had breast cancer or not. And thats just on top of the fact, just between you and me and the world, I don’t do well in front of cameras. I actually get a little bit of anxiety in front of cameras. I’ve never liked being on cameras. I’ve been asked six times to be on a show and I’ve said no to every single one of them until Larry came into my life theres only, theres lierally nothing in this world I wouldn't do for him which is why I made the decision to do this."
"And so you know hopefully the world will understand my craziness and my reactions and the way I handle things because I was dealing with you know a lot of anxiety and also the fact that I might have breast cancer, and I was also dealing with a lot of bullying and B.S. and I don’t like mexican food so I was drinking more than I was eating so [there were] many factors involved that made me react the way I did. And what you got to see was my reaction to reality and the best part of my reality is that now that I know that I get to see that crazy bitch Emily on television, it made me spend the last six months not only fighting breast cancer and dealing with radiation but also, um, I've been doing brain training to go through my addiction and issues and all the issues I lost on camera, I really went in."
"The best thing you can do if you want to fix something is go on a reality television show and fix it and thats what I've been doing for the past six months just fixing it and confronting my demons and fixing my bullshit. I honestly feel like theres a really fine line because all the producers on the show... if it wasn't for the producers of the show, I don’t think I would have made it through. They’re like my family. One of the most incredible teams I've ever had and they were the ones that kept me alive and sane and capable to get up everyday, no pun intended my reality."
