Kimbella and Juelz are prepared to make their grand return, Love and Hip Hop-style, as Season 7 gets underway. Kimbella hasn’t appeared on LHHNY since Season 5–and hasn’t been a main cast member since Season 2–but it looks like things with she and longtime partner Juelz Santana are about to take off once more.

According to VH1, the Miami-based model, who lives with Juelz and their three children in New Jersey, is trying to help Juelz kickstart his music career. When his “late nights at the studio” cause tension between himself and Kimbella, though, this “actress, model, lifestyle brand ambassador, and personality” may well decide that she deserves something more substantial.

It looks like Kimbella, 33, is set for her own full LHHNY comeback, but will nonetheless play second fiddle to Juelz’s musical endeavors. That disconnect is believed to be the source of most of their drama for LHHNY Season 7. Regardless of where their tension lies, Kimbella, the Miami-born daughter of an African-American father and Caucasian mother, remains “Still Pretty” to her legions of old-school fans. And, now that Erica Mena and Chrissy Lampkin are both long gone from the main cast, she’s in a good position to win over a whole new set of devoteés.

Plus, backing up her at home is daughter Bella, cuter than ever before:
