As VH1 prepares to begin filming for their hit show Love & Hip Hop, rumors are swirling the three of the original cast members who helped formalize they way for it’s sister spinoffs, will be making their way back in front of the reality TV cameras.

According to Bossip who spoke to an unnamed source, rapper Jim Jones, his longtime partner Chrissy Lampkin, along with friend Emily B, will be returning to the New York franchise of the hit show. It marks the first time in seven years.

The three amigos’ return will undoubtedly trigger a complicated storyline if the rumors are true, as Chrissy and castmate Yandy Smith have had a complicated past, as well as Emily B and Kimbella. The reveal that Kimbella once had a past sexual experience with Emily B’s boyfriend, rapper Fabolous, resulted in a physical confrontation between Kimbella and Chrissy. However, being that years have passed since shoes and fists were thrown, we may see some sort of resolution between the group.

Last we saw Chrissy and Jim, they were vying to strengthen their years-long relationship last year on WE tv’s Marriage Bootcamp: Family Edition. In the end, the couple decided to stick it out and work on their relationship.

But for Emily B, life has been a little bit more complicated after she and Fabolous faced domestic violence allegations which resulted in a trial. The rapper took a plea deal and avoided jail time in relation to the case, but it will be interesting to see if Emily speaks out in anyway regarding the incident since she has remained silent on the matter ever since the allegations came to light last year.
