NECOLEBITCHIE.COM//Chrissy Lampkin: More Than A Kept B*tch


Aspiring rapper Somaya Reece called her a ‘kept bitch’ and maybe she is, but Chrissy Lampkin will tell you there is nothing wrong with the fact that her man, Jim Jones “keeps” her. Thanks to one of Vh1’s latest gems, Love & Hip Hop, we get to meet the woman closest to rapper’s heart  (and I don’t mean his eccentric mother, Nancy). Reality shows have a way of distorting the truth to give us drama; while Chrissy won’t deny what they show us, she will confirm that she’s more than what we get to see each episode.


After starting our chat with a few questions Chrissy wasn’t willing to answer, like the alleged hook up with Max B, why she and Jim left Ustream in a hurry after the last episode and the caliber of dudes she dated before Jimmy, I thought she wasn’t going to vibe with me, giving us a stale interview. But Chrissy opened up to me after we stared chatting about how she met Jim initially at a Miami nightclub completely by chance. She was almost giddy as she gushed over how almost immediately they became inseparable. Bottom line, Chrissy loves her man and she let her unconventional proposal prove it. She went on to tell me what she’d do if Jim never commits to her, the infidelity issues or lack thereof in her relationship and why she’s never felt the need to snoop on her man.

We published an article about women proposing to men and it seemed the readers thought it made women look desperate or like the woman is rushing the man. You were bold enough to propose to your man. Why did you do it?

I did it to let him know that I love him enough and I am proud and happy enough to display that to the world. That’s what that’s about. Eventually, we will get married. Am I rushing it? No. Of course people have opinions about me asking him to marry me, but I felt it was the right thing to do. I love him enough and I wanted to share that. It’s how I felt and what I wanted. You need to know what you’re doing with your life. You need to have direction. If that thing doesn’t happen the traditional way, it still needs to happen. So why waste your time? I figured I would cut to the chase. What are we waiting for? There’s nothing wrong with me asking.

Do you feel upset that he never asked you first?

We talk about it a lot, so it’s not like it was something that wasn’t going to happen. We’ve talked and planned. We’re on the same page with it. I felt comfortable enough to ask him. It’s not like it was something that was never talked about and I jumped out the window with it. I knew that it was something we both wanted. I didn’t mind being the first one to step up. We’ve been together almost seven years.

What if he never commits to marrying you?

  1. I totally understand Chrissy's point of view with Jimmy… What they have is real love..The type of love you do not see every day. No matter how it is precived due to the conflicts with "J" mom or him not asking her to marry him first. At the end of the day they have the real love that most married couples only yern for! I was in a similar siuation, and what changed the "Mother-N-law Status" from 'Control" to "Me" being in a seperate space in his life where she has to understand as a mohter her role has now changed as I am that special place in his life..She will always be the mother but, I now control our destiny..How that came to be finally after 10 years..My man stepped up to the plate and no matter what the conflict was between me and his mother. he always supported me in front of her, he always made her understand my point of view and why as his mother she needed to understand why he supports me in the decisions I make for us..may he believed I was wrong or right..he supported me in all of our disagreements..And made it perfectly clear each and every time that he loved her as a mom, but I am his to be wife and I deserve to be happy as long as I am with him. And he made his mother realize that I was very important to her son and her son had at that point made her realize that if I am happy, he is happy and she can be happy to!, As she came to realize that he was not going to go agianst me for her at no time..Now we do get along and she respects me as that person who loves her son and her son loves me enough to not go against my wishes at any time with her. If and when we had our arguments i always said trust me "Tony" agrees and he alwways supported me and backed me up(then she realized that dshe has to allow me to take the special place of his wife as he loves me enough to fight the battle with me not with me and mom..but with me, mom is again a different position in his life)..So she now understands the role has changed and in order for her to keep her control she has to be good with me.. I say to myslef every day.." iI never want to be like my mother-n-law when my son decides to fall in love and get married..As I know that my role will change and should change in his life when that special some-one comes along and captures his heart! No matter who he chooses I will choose as well and wish them nothing but love and happiness..there business is and will not ever be my business.I will enjoy my new role which is "Grandma" I so much have been through enough like Chrissy when you just get tired of the battle..But as long as "J" supports you only you no matter will gain her respect and love…Trust me..he has to give the support of a lifetime to you and let Momma "J" see it , breath it, hear it, eat it, and sleep it..! And she will change and she will undertand! And come to realize that a strong woman was able to move a mountain(her) and her son supported you in doing so..She will then realize that oyu are as strong as her, you are as worthy as her to be with her son..and realize that he is safe with you and loved and you can take over the reigns and she can be proud that he fell in love with a strong woman that was able to move her into her own lane and her own space!Love out to you Chrissy and "J"
