Sports Gal is one happy Diva right now because her fave guilty pleasure, Love & Hip Hop, is breaking out a reunion special tonight!
Sports Gal talked with two of its stars, Chrissy Lampkin and Former G-Unit recording artist Olivia to get the scoop.
Chrissy, the interior designer who met rapper Jim Jones a few years ago and developed an instant relationship with him, reveals that their was a show was originally planned about Jim, but he was hesitant to do it. So she stepped up and itΓÇÖs been an overall great experience for her.
No doubt tonight she’ll be talking about some of her favorite moments on the series: the dance lessons they took, the party she gave for just the girls and the car scene with Olivia talking about her hair (because that is just what girls do with their girlfriends!).
Of course, that might have been a bit strange for Olivia, one of the very first artists to be signed to J Records by music industry legend Clive Davis. Unfortunately for her, Alicia Keyes was also signed to J Records and became the face of the label. But Olivia didnΓÇÖt quit, she signed with Interscope and became the only female member of G Unit, a group of hard core, ΓÇ£ganstaΓÇ¥ rappers. Since sheΓÇÖs a tomboy, she fit in fine with the guys. But the experience did have its surreal moments, like riding in bulletproof trucks to get to shows.
For such a pretty girl, Olivia seemed to have a hard time dating this season, but appearances are a bit deceiving. Right now, for her the focus “is on the singing career” so sheΓÇÖs not really dating or trying to meet men to date.
Now back to Chrissy. What made her fall in love with Jim? First of all, they have a great friendship, which is always the foundation of a great relationship. Through that friendship, they discovered a mutual respect and consideration as well as a whole lot of patience and understanding.
Of course, Sports Gal got the rundown on these ladies favorite fashions. Chrissy loves Alexander Wang, Yves St. Laurent and Valentino. Her favorite pair of shoes are a pair of Christian Louboutin boots that have an old school look. TheyΓÇÖre over the knee suede with buttons, and can be worn with anything.
OliviaΓÇÖs favorite designers are Diane Von Furstenberg, Missoni, LAMB, Fendi and Giuseppe Zanotti. Her favorite pair of shoes are her first pair of Gucci slingbacks that were given to her by Luther Vandross as congratulations on signing with J Records.
Yeah, Sports Gal teared up a bit over that.
Catch Love & Hip Hop, the reunion special, airs Monday, May 16 at 8 p.m. on VH1.
