Last night’s episode of Love & Hip Hop was a hodgepodge of car shopping, conversations with Chrissy’s aunt Cookie and cat fights. Chrissy still struggles with the status of her relationship with Jim, while Yandy introduces an interloper with some awesome hair-pulling skills.
Jim Jones is buying me a car at the Audi dealership looking for his first white car (he lost a bet) and mocking Chrissy’s reaction when she finds out about his new purchase. It is a beautiful car, fit for a hustler. Jim’s words, not mine. His friend promises to get the bleeped ready (after much rewinding I am going to definitively type he said he’d get the “puff puff” ready) so they can christen the car on the ride home. That gorgeous car won’t even be off the lot before it reeks of marijuana.

Without a doubt, the ladies of Love & Hip Hop definitely know how to turn up the heat where drama is concerned. Lately, it’s been a clash of the musical egos between the former First Lady of 50 Cent’s G Unit Olivia Longott and Latin music sensation and model Somaya Reece.
In a recent VH1 blog, Olivia admits, “I took a lot of heat [on a past episode] because of my attitude toward Somaya. What people need to understand: I’ve made bad decisions in my career, but what I will say is that someone saw the talent in me. Say what you wanna, that I didn’t blow up, that I’m wack, or love me, but the fact is, I was signed to Clive Davis as the first act on J Records, and also traveled the world with 50.” That’s a pretty decent resume, I’d say.
“But don’t get it twisted,” she continues. “I know I’m starting over, doing it alone, but I won’t ever say Somaya and I are on the same level, because I don’t think she has much talent. That’s not hate, I’m allowed to have my opinion.” Opinions, hate… what’s the difference on these shows?
While Olivia applauds her cast mate’s willingness to work she believes the only thing Somaya has in her favor is the show itself. She reveals, “Her work ethic is insane and of course a TV show kinda evens [the] playing field, but reality is, if Love & Hip Hop didn’t exist, this conversation wouldn’t ever come up, so I get that too. Not too mention the lies she’s told on my manager, but hey, that’s for another day…” Mee and Yow!
And if one series isn’t enough, it looks like Love & Hip Hop may be getting its own spin-off on VH1, an insider tells Sister2Sister. Because the show is doing so well, the network is hoping to double the popularity with a similar show based in Atlanta and starring rapper Diamond.
The same source reveals that fellow Atlanta rapper Rasheeda and Rici, who served as Yung Joc’s former assistant are also being approached about potentially starring in the series. While nothing is set in stone, it is rumored that how Diamond will be portrayed is a source of contention. While Diamond’s publicist wants her to appear polished on the show, producers are calling for the rapper to totally be herself while the cameras are rolling. If the producers get their way, “Diamond would definitely be the Chrissy [Lampkin]” of the spin-off, the insider promises.
Regardless whether the two sides can come to an agreement, one thing is for certain, says the source. “New York don’t have nothing on Atlanta.”

Last night’s Love & Hip Hop was filled with everything it should have been: a family feud between Jim Jones’ loud lady and rapping mother, Fab’s exes getting slightly friendly and, of course, Kimbella’s hair getting up close and personal with a candle wick. Priceless!
The episode begins with Chrissy Lampkin and Jim Jones discussing her chat with Yandy Smith over the ladies’ recent blow-up. Chrissy tells Jim that she feels like she could be a better manager for Jim than Yandy is. Poor Jim. He can barely get through his interview without looking like a kid off of his ADD meds… the last thing he needs is for his lady and manager to be feuding. He offers to let Chrissy help him design some coats for his collection instead. Chrissy’s on board until they pair gets in a tiff over her cut of the check. Jim laughs, saying that Chrissy is “[messing] up his concentration.” What did I just say about ADD? Those who have it can certainly spot it!

In other news, did Chrissy finally get a proposal from long-term boyfriend/rapper Jim Jones? According to a report that is the case! If you recall, Chrissy proposed to Jim last season yet nothing ultimately came from that.
According to a report by Bossip, Jim finally popped the question to Chrissy last month in Miami. Sources tell the blog: “Jimmy had a super romantic outdoor proposal planned, the rainy weather forced him to take it indoors.” The proposal reportedly took place in the ballroom at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Miami with most of Chrissy’s castmates present. No word yet on whether or not VH1’s cameras were on hand to capture this moment.
The new season of Love & Hip Hop premieres Monday, November 14 on VH1.

The ladies of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop officially return with their second season on November 14 at 9/8c, and this time around, the episodes will be an hour long!
VH1 just released an all new trailer which can only be summed up in three words: Drama! Drama! and more Drama! There are catfights, hair pulling and drink throwing. These ladies make the Basketball Wiveslook like rookies!
Returning for the new season are season 1 cast members Chrissy Lampkin(very long-term girlfriend of rapper Jim Jones), Somaya Reece(“model” and “rapper”), Emily Bustamente (stylist/baby mama to rapper Fabolous) and singer Olivia.

VH1 promises the “one-hour, 10 episode series will follow these six women as they navigate their professional and love lives in a world where opportunity, fame, excitement and money is always in sight … but sometimes just out of reach.”
As for what to expect this season, Chrissy’s still waiting for that wedding to Jim after proposing to him last season. She makes it clear that she’s not willing to wait much longer. After desperately trying to get a real commitment from her son’s father, Fabolous, Emily has finally decided to move out on her own. Olivia‘s new single did not take off despite getting some good early buzz so she is back to hustling harder than ever to launch a solo career and get signed by a major label. And Somaya is also struggling to launch her music career.
In the trailer below, we see Chrissy and newbie Kimbella getting into an all out fist fight, stomping included, after a heated arguement. And Kimbella also reveals to Emily that she dated Fabolous 3 years ago… while Emily was pregnant for him. Yikes!
