Didn’t We All See This One Coming? Jim Jones & Chrissy Get Their Own Reality Show

Didn’t we all see this one coming? If you watched the reunion of VH1‘s “Love & Hip-Hop”, then you know Chrissy had some bad choice of words for the show’s executive producer Mona Scott-Young and co-producer Yandy Smith (music/talent manager and Jim Jones’ former manager). It is being reported that Olivia, Yandy Smith, Emily, Kimbella, Erica Mena and Somaya have already signed on for the third season. Jim Jones and Chrissy never signed on. Many people thought it was because of financial reasons, but I knew from the start that it was because they wanted their own show and it look like VH1 granted them their wish.

According to my good folks over at MouthToEars.Com, Jimmy and his fiancée Chrissy have got the green lighted byVH1 for five to seven 30 minutes episode of their own reality show. Below is how MouthToEars is reporting the story:

“So according to my source who NEVER fails me  allegedly Jimmy and Chrissy are in need of a CONGRATS! They have got GREEN lighted by VH1 for 5 to 7 30 minute episode of straight JONES( which they are supposed to be filming NOW).The source says Jimmy and Chrissy refuse to deal with Mona and requested this .  For those like Solange Knowles who love Chrissy this is just what the doctor ordered. Can we start thinking about Chrissy’ wedding  dress shopping with Mama Jones? Also I heard Mama Jones show will not see the light of day and she will be on this show. They are saying this may be called “Jim and the family JONES “……..we like it ! And as for Love and Hip Hop the source says allegedly that there is Olivia , Yandy , Kimbella , Erica Mena , and maybe some new people. Now that is about to be awesome. I wonder will more drama between Kimbella and Erica occur or will Erica and Rich elope ? Hey this is reality television anything is possible.”

Life After Love & Hip-Hop: Yandy Smith Talks The Biggest Lesson She Learned From The Show & If She Spoken To Jim Jones

Music/talent manager and reality star Yandy Smith of VH1‘s “Love & Hip Hop”  is still out hustling. Trust me, Smith still has checks coming in! She graduated from Howard University and interned at Violator before leaving to manage Jim Jones full-time. She is no longer managing Jim Jones. She is the talent manager at Monami Entertainment, where she co-manages Missy, Busta Rhymes and Toccarra. Smith also has her own accessory line and lifestyle brand Everything Girls Love. She is a true Harlem hustla! TheJasmineBrand recently chatted with Smith about Love & Hip-Hop, Jim Jones, Missy and much more. Below are some excerpts:

On the biggest lesson learned from “Love and Hip-Hop”.

“My biggest lesson was you can say no. If I had to do it all over again, there would be some things that I would probably think of ahead and just say ‘No, I’m not doing it.’ Like situations like ‘Okay we need you to walk into the luncheon with Erica’ and I see Kim sitting there, I should’ve thought ahead like ‘I’m not doing it’ and just said no. But you know it was the first time taping and I put a lot of trust in producers and just feeling like ‘they wouldn’t set me up, they wouldn’t make me look crazy,’ and I can’t blame anybody of course, but it’s about a show, making a great show. If a fight sparks off or some crazy words transpire, that’s what makes the show, that’s what keeps you guys tuned in.”

On whether or not she’s spoken to Jim Jones.

“No. His whole team calls me for everything, for show bookings. A lot of them still come through me so I pass them onto his guys and if they need help with something they all call me so I’ve spoken to him not directly, but through everybody else. Just because I don’t mind helping and I wanna see him win regardless.”

On her upcoming work with Missy Elliot.

“She’s working on a new album. We have a great first single that I think is just like hardcore Missy. She’s back to her roots, she’s back with Timbaland, so it’s going to be the Missy that we’ve all been waiting for. Not that she’s been gone, because while she herself hasn’t been out as an artist, she’s produced Monica, she’s produced Keyshia Cole, she’s produced Jazmine Sullivan. She’s been working. Now she has a single out with J. Cole, which is a great record as well. So there’s a lot going on.”

College Grad Turned Music Mogul: Yandy Smith Talks Getting Her Start In The Music Biz, Love & Hip-Hop, Jim Jones, Chrissy, Missy & More

Before Love & Hip-Hop, I knew who Yandy Smith was. If you’re familiar with Harlem’s rap group “The Diplomats,” then you should have somewhat of an idea who Smith is. She’s the woman who is responsible for some of “The Diplomats” success, especially Jim Jones. Not only is she or was she Jim’s manager, she also handles a lot of projects for “The Diplomats” as a whole. I last ran into Smith back in September, when I was at this Dipset questions and answers conversation, alongside celebrity blogger and radio jockey Miss Info and Dollah Tha Rapper, in Harlem. With the help of her mentor Mona Scott Young, this Howard University alumni has managed the careers of Missy Elliot, Busta Rhymes and Jim Jones. Angela Byrd over at KYSDC.com caught up with Yandy and they talked about getting her break in the music biz, Love & Hip-Hop, Jim Jones, Chrissy, Missy and much more. Below are some excerpts:

Now you’re a HU alumni, how did going to college help you get your foot in the door?

It was really persistent for me to get into the music industry. I am a Howard University alumni but in music what I come to find ,a lot of the stuff I’ve learned in college, I haven’t had to apply it. I was a business management major, with business management I had to take finance, accountant, and business law. All those different things added a little salt to who I am but we have lawyers that cover our contract. I have accountant to handle my mone. I have a financial advisor to handle my finances.

Was it easy to break into the field?

Two months after I graduated, I moved back to New York. A friend of mine had a meeting at Violator and I went with him. I was just sitting in the receptionist area, while I was sitting there, I saw artists come in and out, everybody was laughing, talking loud, music playing. I was like “is this a job or is this a hangout.” At that time, I wanted to get into entertainment law, so I thought maybe God brought me here for a reason. I was just persistent, I got the number to the receptionist and I would call her everyday, then I found out Mona’s assistant number and I called her everyday. Every time I was in Manhattan, I would stop by the office to act like I was saying hi to the receptionist. Every time I went or every time I called I asked if they needed help. I did that for about 3 weeks and finally they gave me a job/internship.

Love & Hip-Hop is heating up. You’re one of the creators of the show along with Mona Scott Young?
Yep.Yep.

Harlem’s #1 hustla and rapper Jim Jones is expanding his talents and dipping into the fashion industry. The Dipset rapper has teamed up with music executive Dan Tan and designers from Parish Nation to launch Protocol, a new outerwear clothing line. In my opinion, this is a dope idea because Jones is known for being a fly dude from Harlem. Peep some pieces from the outerwear collection below:
