Nothing says I love you and we’re in it for the long haul like a tattoo right? Even if you’ve been in a relationship for about 10-plus years and have yet to make it down the aisle. That’s the case with Chrissy and Jim Jones who has some new interesting art on his right forearm.
VH1′s blog just noticed the new ink on the Harlem rapper when he stopped by their office to talk about his style. The staff couldn’t help but notice the face of a beautiful young lady on the inside of his arm which just happens to be that of his long-time girlfriend and now fiancee, Chrissy Lampkin. Anyone who has followed “Love & Hip-Hop New York” knows the story of “Chrissy and Mr. Jones,’” as they’re known by on their reality show spinoff. After being together for years, Chrissy decided to pop the question to Jimmy herself and after he accepted he returned the favor a season later and surprised Chrissy with a rock of her own and a surprise proposal.
Two seasons into their own reality show, marriage still doesn’t seem to be too near and when we talked to Chrissy and Jim a few weeks back, Chrissy gave us a wedding date of “Nevuary 1st.” One thing that’s for sure is the tattoo Jim got a year-and-a-half ago isn’t going anywhere. Hopefully the same can be said for their relationship.
What do you think of Jim’s tattoo?
I’ll be real and say, I’m not a huge fan of Jim Jones…his music or his reality tv persona. He’s just always struck me as a jerk. And even though, he’s certainly not my fave, I can’t help but appreciate the way he seems to interact with his son in the new Chrissy and Mr. Jones Supertrailer. It’s quite heartwarming. And the most life I’ve seen from Jimmy, as Chrissy calls him, in a long time.
Aside from the adorable father son love, we watch as Chrissy and Jim go through their ups and downs. In the trailer, she says they’ve just come through a rough patch. Chrissy tries to establish her own business, though she seems to want to do so under the “Vampire Life” umbrella. And Mama Jones does a photo shoot for her new relationship book. Ya’ll know any and everybody is a relationship expert these days.
Looks like it’s going to be a hoot.
Watch the supertrailer below.
Back in July we told you that one of reality TV’s favorite couples, Chrissy Lampkin and Jim Jones, would definitely be returning to VH1 for season two of their show, Chrissy and Mr. Jones. While news of the show being picked up for a second season wasn’t totally surprising, what is surprising is that they’ll be returning with a new addition: Jim’s 10-year-old son, Joseph Guillermo III aka Pudy.
“Jim’s son Pudy moved in with us. I have a 10-year-old now!” Chrissy excitedly exclaims during the show’s Season 2 trailer.
While it will certainly be interesting to see Jim and Chrissy adjust to having a child in their home, it will also be interesting to see whether or not Chrissy’s tumultuous relationship with her soon-to-be mother-in-law, Mama Jones, has improved at all. Though, we’d be quite surprised if it has.
“The Joneses are out of their minds… It’s funny that Nancy is writing a book on love and romance when she tried to f*** mine up.”
The trailer doesn’t indicate whether or not Chrissy and Jim plan on actually tying the knot anytime soon, but it’s apparent that Chrissy is seeking to become more independent the season. And guess who will be the one to coach her through it? None other than Waka Flocka’s mama, Deb Antney.
“No more hiding. No more excuses for Chrissy being Chrissy,” Deb says.
This season looks pretty promising, especially with adorable little Pudy being added to the mix. The ratings, however, will tell the real story.

After watching the drama unfold between Rihanna and Teyana Taylor on Twitter this week, I learned two things: 1. Rihanna really likes to nitpick at people. 2. Teyana Taylor is extremely trill to be so tiny. While folks like Ciara, Karreuche Tran, and more have all cowered back in the corner when they’ve had to deal with the Bajan bad girl, Taylor held nothing back (though she did get a little too fired up). But I’m not really surprised. TT is from Harlem, and Uptown folks don’t play that. Don’t believe me? Check out these nine other Harlem-ites who are quick to put somebody in their place and maybe snatch a wig or two in the process.
In case you’ve been wondering about the fate of Chrissy Lampkin and Jim Jones’s spin-off reality show, word on the street is that they’ve been picked up for a second season. According to The Jasmine Brand, the pair were spotted filming the show this past weekend.
In the event that you’ve been living under a anti-ratchet reality television rock, Chrissy and Mr. Jones is a spin-off of Mona Scott-Young’s popular reality show, Love & Hip Hop. Chrissy and Jimmy were originally the stars of the LHH, along with the mother of rapper Fabolous’s son, Emily Bustamente, Mashonda, Somaya Reece and Olivia. Things went awry between Chrissy and Mona when Mona’s protégé and Jimmy’s then-manager, Yandy Smith, joined the cast.
After only two seasons and countless showdowns, Jimmy and Chrissy decided to leave the show. Emily B. decided to follow her BFF Chrissy’s lead and left the show as well. Not long after, they reemerged on the VH1 scene with their own spin-off, which Emily also appears on.
Chrissy and Mr. Jones pulled 2.07 million viewers during it’s first episode, but that number slowly declined to 1.87 million by the season finale. Maybe Chrissy will actually become Mrs. Jone this season…
Did you watch season one of Chrissy and Mr. Jones? What did you think of it?
Last week while waiting for a friend at Newark International Airport, rapper-turned-reality star Jim Jones was approached by a police officer who claimed he smelled marijuana coming from the Harlem M.C.’s vehicle, TMZ reports.
The way the story is being told, not long after the first officer approached Jim, three more officers joined him. They are said to have then ordered him to step out of his vehicle and place both hands on the trunk of his car. Officers then ransacked the car in search of drugs and contraband, in addition to giving the Chrissy & Mr. Jones star a thorough pat down.
Their seemingly unwarranted search turned up empty. One officer wrote Jim a citation for driving without a license and then officers left the scene.
“He was searched for nothing more than racial profiling,” a representative on behalf of Jones told TMZ.
The rep also revealed that Jim is furious over what happened. A spokesperson for the New York/New Jersey Port Authority expressed that they will be looking into the incident.
What are your thoughts on this? Have you ever been harassed by law enforcement?
If you’re still wearing cornrows on a consistent basis in 2013, I’m not saying you’re dead wrong, but you might want to think about letting all that go. How about a haircut? Locs? Hell, even Snoop Dogg had to move on to a new style at some point. In all honesty, we all have sat in someone’s chair or between someone’s legs and let them give us an Alicia Keys makeover circa 2001. And maybe we didn’t look as good with them as we thought we did (I for one have a head too damn large for that look and learned that it wasn’t for me with the quickness…), but at least nobody had to see them but a few of our friends and family. Sadly, we all had to see these celebs and their braid fails over the years, and while some tried to hold on as long as they could, they all eventually left the style behind…Good move.
It used to be that when your career was nearing its end, there wasn’t a whole lot that could help resuscitate it. Then came reality television. Now many a has-been celebrity have found new life (and bigger paychecks) by jumping on the reality bandwagon. Whether they’ve taken a spin around the “Dancing with the Stars” ballroom or honed their business chops on “Celebrity Apprentice,” these celebrities have found fame in unexpected places. Madame Noire lists its 15 celebs that have benefited most from a little reality action.
Because one season and two reunions just weren’t enough to capture the craziness that is the lives of “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta’s” cast, last night VH1 aired a “Dirty Little Secrets” special that brought even more skeletons out of Rasheeda, K. Michelle, Scrappy, Joseline, Mimi, and Stevie J’s ratchet closets. If you thought you knew all there was to know about these characters, you were wrong. Check out nine secrets we learned during last night’s special.
There’s something very hot about a guy who looks like your everyday Joe Schmo and then pulls off his shirt to show…BLOW BLING BLOW: abs of perfection, poppin’ pecs and biceps and triceps that could hurt a fool that comes very incorrect at you. You know, the modern day Popeye. It’s also something that could make you give a certain celebrity the eye when you weren’t really paying them any mind before. Check out these 10 fellas and you’ll know what I mean…
And to think, I’ve never looked at Miguel as anything but the guy with the great voice who sings “Sure Thing” and “Adorn,” the new baby-making jams. But who knew he had a body like this? The singer showcased his very well put together biceps and triceps, and a nice set of abs that I think we can all appreciate. Heeeeey Miguel!
