    Sneak Peek: Jim’s answer

    You don’t have to wait until Monday to find out how Jim Jones answered Chrissy Lampkin’s proposal. A sneak peek of next week’s "Love & Hip Hop" reveals what he said when she popped the question.

    Last week’s episode left off with Chrissy asking him to marry her. Crafty producers, however, decided that it was best to turn the big event into a cliff hanger. Get a look at how he answered (spoiler: there wasn’t an actual ‘yes’) and how his mom went off in the clip below.

    Jennifer Lopez working on “American Idol” rival?

    Jennifer Lopez and “American Idol” creator, Simon Fuller, may be working together to produce a new singing competition show.

    Jennifer has already questioned whether she’ll return to the Fox hit. “I don’t know if I will do another season. I’m taking it day by day at the moment, and we’ll see what happens.”

    Reportedly, Jennifer has been working on her own series for a while, and Simon introduced the idea of teaming up on the project.

    Jennifer’s show would have a unique spin on it, making it stand out from “American Idol,” “X Factor,” “The Voice” and “The Sing Off.” Her show, tentatively titled “Que Vivia,” would focus on undiscovered talent in Latin America.
