The third season of VH1’s successful Family Reunion: Love & Hip Hop Edition has begun. The debut episode will premiere on the television network on Monday, November 28, 2022, at 8 p.m. ET, and will include several prominent cast members from the Love & Hip Hop series. The program was shot in Jamaica with the goal of promoting black achievement and demonstrating dynamics in the black community, with a dash of drama thrown in for good measure.
Chrissy Lampkin formerly appeared on Love & Hip Hop: New York for multiple seasons. She was a main cast member for the first two seasons, portraying an anti-heroic demeanor and becoming engaged in multiple fights. She also co-starred in Chrissy & Mr. Jones, her own spin-off sitcom, with her boyfriend Jim Jones. The following is the summary for the forthcoming season of Family Reunion: Love & Hip Hop Edition:
“For the first time, cast members from the Love & Hip Hop series take the celebration to international seas, convening in Jamaica to soak up the tropical sun and let go of their inhibitions.”
Chrissy Lampkin has a lengthy history with Love & Hip Hop.
Chrissy was raised by her grandmother in Harlem after being separated from her parents at a young age. Because of her background, she had to acquire self-preservation skills as well as how to survive on the streets. She was the subject of much rumor and conjecture about her involvement in thefts, credit card frauds, and drug smuggling when Love & Hip Hop: New York was airing, and she was also jailed in 1992 for her role in an interstate drug trafficking organization.
Chrissy started dating Jim Jones in 2004, after meeting him in Miami, and she also starred in a suggested presentation video for a series on Jim’s life. However, after being influenced by several women-centric reality programs, the presentation was eventually modified to film Chrissy and her pals. She was named one of the major cast members of Love & Hip Hop on January 4, 2011.
Chrissy’s relationship with Jim was discussed in the first season, which premiered in March 2011, as did her conflict with fellow cast member Somaya, who wished to work with Jim on a song. At a boat party, the two females got into a heated argument. Chrissy proposed to Jim halfway through the season, eliciting a passionate response from his mother Nancy. Viewers watched Chrissy and Jim’s relationship problems throughout the second season of the VH1 program, given the latter’s commitment difficulties. In season 2, Chrissy had disagreements with Jim’s manager Yandy. She was chastised for striking fellow cast member Kimbella in the face and tried to smash her head to the ground before being dragged away by security.
In the second season of the reality show, Jim overcame his commitment anxieties and proposed to Chrissy. VH1 announced on September 7, 2012, that the pair will be departing the program to feature in their own spin-off show Chrissy & Mr. Jones. The show followed the celebrity’s forays into home design and fashion. The program lasted two seasons, ending in 2013. Chrissy then relocated to Miami to pursue a real estate profession. In 2016, she and Jim made a short return to reality television, appearing in We TV’s Jim & Chrissy: Vow or Never. Chrissy also appeared on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars 10 – Family Edition 2 alongside Nancy.
Chrissy returned to the Love & Hip Hop cast for the ninth season. She reconciled with Kimbella and met Yandy for the first time. Emjay Johnson, Estelita, Gunplay, Jenn Coreano, Alexis Skyy, Amara La Negra, Jim Jones, Karen “KK” King, Karlie Redd, Khaotic, Lyrica Anderson, Mama Jones, Spice, and Sukihana are among the other cast members confirmed to feature on the upcoming season of Family Reunion: Love & Hip Hop Edition. Teairra Mari, Mariahlynn, Miami Tip, Nikki Baby, Phresher, Safaree Samuels, Scrapp DeLeon, Shay Johnson, Shekinah Jo, Tokyo Vanity, and Trick Daddy will also perform.
