Kimbella is a new addition to season two Love & Hip-Hop, and rumors are already circulating about the drama. The 27-year-old model is also a mother of two and girlfriend to Juelz Santana. VIBE Vixen caught up with her to chat about how she got involved with the show and how well...or not...she meshed with the other women.
On Getting Involved
Love & Hip-Hop approached me. I guess you could say they scouted me. They asked me if I would like to be a part of the show. Ultimately, I decided it would be a great opportunity, so I signed up.
On What She Brings To The Show
I don’t take it as a role. They’re just following me and what I do on a daily basis. It was a great opportunity for me to open up to the world. Instead of them seeing me a beautiful girl in a still picture, they’re able to follow me through my everyday with my family, holding the house down, standing behind a man in the industry and also building my career.
On Connecting With The Other Women
The characters on the show are Chrissy, Emily, Somaya, Olivia, Yandy and I. I don’t know if you know Yandy, but she’s Jim Jones’ manager. Me and Yandy have been friends for a long time, so she’s automatically a connection. It was great to have her be a part of that. She’s automatically on my team, so it wasn’t like I was going in by myself. I had my girl with me. With everyone else, you have to get to know everyone before you jump into something. There’s never an instance where you can jump in. It’s like, ‘No, I have to see who you are. What you’re about. Can I rock with you?’ That’s just how I roll.
