Chrissy Lampkin, Kimbella & Yandy Smith React To Infamous ‘Love & Hip Hop: New York’ Fight, Chrissy Admits: “I’m Not Sorry!”
It’s been seven years since the punch-and-kick-combo heard ’round the world took place on VH1’s “Love and Hip-Hop: New York.” And last night (12/16/19) marked the 10th season of the original franchise of the series. To commemorate, OGs like Erica Mena, Tahiry Jose, and the infamous Chrissy Lampkin returned to the show. In promotion of the epic return, Chrissy Lampkin, Yandy Smith, and Kimbella reacted to their notorious 2012 fight scene!
Each lady recounted what happened.
Now that it’s 8 years later, of course, I initially, didn’t wanna tell Emily in front of everybody. I wanted to take her to the side and let her know. Regardless of any situation, I needed to let her know because I was gonna be around her…it got real crazy. I felt like it wasn’t Chrissy’s fight. It was Emily’s fight.
Chrissy Lampkin also shared her thoughts.
To my defense, I thought the cameras were off! So ugly! This is so ugly! Stop it! I don’t wanna see it! It was terrible! It’s not my greatest moment; it’s not my proudest moment. And I know it’s gonna sound a little crazy- it may be convoluted. But I’m not sorry for what I did. I’m sorry it was her, ’cause she has become his wife and the mother of his children. But I felt like I felt. It is what it is…I don’t want people to know me for fighting- that’s not my thing. But it is in me, obviously!
Yandy Smith witnessed the fight firsthand and said,
I remember that night. I was told it was a housewarming party, ok? But it was, like, some ‘my emancipation from my man’ party. To be honest with you, in the moment, if you were there, there was good reason behind her telling Emily…What happened was, which you didn’t see, was, Emily said, ‘I saw you in his phone before.’ They didn’t show that! She said, ‘Yes. I used to deal with him or talk to him’ or whatever she said. Should she have lied? In answer to that, somone got very upset who had nothing to do with the situation. It didn’t make a lot of sense to me…I heard her say something about, ‘Let me go to the bathroom,’ or, ‘Let me just get some air.’ Oh, that air turned into an air-out of Kimbella’s punany! If you were there, it was bad!”
Kimbella says that despite the intensity of the moment, it propelled her to where she is now on the totem pole of reality TV stardom.
“I lived that. And to this day that’s why I’m, ‘Still pretty!’ That moment will always be an epic moment no matter what.”
Chrissy, however, doesn’t feel as apologetic as one would think she would. She also hinted at a strained relationship with the fight’s subject – Fabolous‘ longtime girlfriend, Emily Bustamante:
“I am slow to anger these days. That was a time I thought she was purposely disrespecting a girlfriend of mine that was in a really hard spot. She was trying to be emancipated from, not neglect, but a bad situation. And we’re supposed to be supporting her… a girl’s party. And you come in here with this craziness…I don’t wanna see none of my friends hurt unnecessarily…Emily did pick up my clip-in’s! I know y’all saw her stuffin’ ’em in her shirt or whatever! So she held me down, as well. Emily is baby sis. She’s shady as f***, but no matter what I love her to death.”
