That was fast. It was like yesterday when I broke the news of a show “The Gossip Girls,” which is what is was called at that time.

THE SHOW IS DEAD.
IT WON’T BE BACK FOR A SECOND SEASON. I thought it may return and add the drama that K. Foxx was unceremoniously fired. The morning show at Hot 97 may take a PR hit over the departure of the chocolate honey. Anyway, K. Foxx gave Ebony an exclusive on why she left and the conditions surrounding her departure.
On her abrupt “firing”
In radio, they don’t give you a two week notice because you could just go on the air and wild out, and say “F*ck you!” and all that. So they have you do a shift and tell you after your shift not to come back. It’s not unheard of for you not know what’s going on up till then.
On how her co-hosts, Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds responded
They’re shocked. And confused…I’m a good person. I always came in to work I wasn’t a bitch to anyone. I always smiled. Did lots of events. I was a team player. [DJ Funkmaster] Flex called me and he said: “You didn’t deserve this. You rode for HOT-97.” I wore that logo on my back.
On if VH1’s Gossip Game reality TV show caused problems at work
I really don’t know. I really don’t know. I didn’t know I had any problems at work. If I did, that’s news to me.
On Ebro Darden saying “you’ve seen all the rappers’ Johnsons” and that she “got your job” at HOT-97 by sleeping with someone–that you “slept your way to the top”?
I was thinking—is he saying that “the top” is HOT- 97? That’s the top? For me it’s not. So, I just think that when somebody says that they’re just trying be malicious and hurtful and they just have no idea of who I am or what my story is. That’s why it’s so important for me to do interviews like this. Because you go through so many things, and you don’t want to be a b*tch if you will and lash out but there are little girls who are looking at us.
One thing that I will say about it was that it was hurtful. Because the person that said it, my program director, is the one that hired me. And he brought me in and he knew that was not the truth. So why are you going to play with me like that? Why are you going to play with my livelihood like that?
