If at first you don’t succeed, try a third reality show and see if that will get folks down the aisle.
Chrissy Lampkin and Jim Jones are back. After dealing with drama with other people and within their relationship on “Love and Hip Hop” and trying to make things work on “Chrissy & Mr. Jones,” the couple of 11 years are giving it another go with reality TV — oh, and this whole marriage thing.
In their new WEtv show, Jim & Chrissy: Vow or Never, we see the couple finally trying to plan a wedding after their engagement went from on-again to off-again and back. In the preview, all sorts of things seem to be holding them back from “doing the damn thing” as they say. From Mama Jones (yes, she’s back too) saying she doesn’t think the pair is ready to be married, to Jones asking them to push their date back, and folks not showing up for planning meetings. One minute they’re excited and talking about tying the knot “for the whole world to see,” the next Lampkin is breaking down in tears over the stress of their situation. I’m not sure if the pressure of still talking about this issue on national TV will finally get them married, but the fact that they’re still going back and forth about all of it, knowing they both exchanged proposals already (she popped the question in 2011, he gave her a ring in 2012), has to be tiring. And Jones saying things like this on social media probably doesn’t help:
Either way, you can see where things go for this couple when Jim & Chrissy: Vow or Never premieres on September 1 at 10/9 c on WEtv.
