Jim Jones ande Chrissy Lampkin are making their return to reality television. But the couple’s latest venture might be a tad shocking.
Jones and his longtime girlfriend will be featured on the new season of Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars Family Edition. The question, however, is: Why?
You might remember, Lampkin proposed to the Dipset rapper during an episode of Love & Hip Hop Season 1. Unfortunately, his response was not a firm yes, rather an “I’m with you.” Needless to say, the two have yet to make it down the aisle.
The pair might not be married, but they are certainly madly in love.
And given this is the “family edition” of the hit series, Mama Jones will appear alongside the duo on the WeTV show.
It’s unclear what issues they will be tackling, but given the history of Lam and Mama Jones’ rollercoaster of a relationship, our guess is they will focus on setting boundaries.
Mama Jones made headlines over the Christmas holiday when her home burned to the ground. Jones confirmed the news with an emotional video on Instagram, telling his fans that he is “On this Christmas, my mom’s house burned down,” he said in the video. “But the best gift of all is that all my family is together. Everybody is safe.”
Today I was blessed wit th greatest Christmas gift in my life thus far and tht is my family gettin out of th house safe sound n wit out injuries We can always buy new houses new cars new evrything but we can’t buy a new family On th flip side watchin my momma house burn touch my soul in ways I couldn’t imagine I wasn’t raised wit my mother but my son was and his whole life of memories gone in a flash If u know me then u know I’m gonna buy my family th biggest house I can afford and fill it wit more love The devil is always workin but so is my God I got faith Merry Christmas
The other stars featured on the upcoming season are Renee Graziano with her sisters Lana Graziano Zanococchio and Jennifer Graziano (Mob Wives) Amber Portwood and her ex-fiancé Matt Baier and mom Tonya Portwood (Teen Mom); and Brandi Glanville and dad Guy Granville (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills).
New episodes will premiere this March.
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
