Monami Entertainment and Bartenura Wines hosted a private dinner and screening for Season 2 of VH1′s Love & Hip Hop at Pranna restaurant Friday, and mediabistro.com was there as cast members Jim Jones, Chrissy Lampkin, Olivia Longott and Rich Dollaz fielded questions about life in front of the cameras.

The elephant(s) in the room? Will there be a wedding this season, and what the hell happened to make Chrissy attack new cast member Kimbella in the very first episode? Well, Chrissy was sporting a very large rock on her left hand during the event. (“What ring?” she said, turning the bauble away from the crowd when a reporter asked about it. “Watch the show,” replied Jim.)

And, as for that knock-down stomping she gave Kimbella (seriously, she sent the poor girl flying off her chair and then proceeded to kick her in the face), Lampkin says she had merely acted in the moment to defend her friend and cast mate Emily Bustamante. “It happened and I’m over it,” she said.

Peep more pictures after the jump, and tune in to VH1 tonight at 9 p.m. ET for Season 2 of Love & Hip-Hop.
