Hello all!! We are here for another week of our favorite ladies in medicine and I hope you all are safe with the hurricane and gas explosions here in Mass. We open at Contessa’s house where she is worried sick about her father who is very ill. He has Crohn’s disease but she is afraid that her dad is sicker than he is letting on. Scott tells Contessa about the party and informs her about Toya’s messy call out. Contessa is pissed and can’t believe Toya is so petty when her dad is so sick.
Jackie and Heavenly go paintballing and invited Quad. They discuss how Quad is on social media with her other friends but can’t be bothered with them. Quad texts Heavenly mid conversation and bails out on paintball. Heavenly is mad and hurt but is more than happy to take it out on Jackie. The two of them have fun, especially Jackie who Heavenly surrendered to!
Simone is teaching her son Michael how to drive. He is learning on an “old” Jaguar which I can’t relate to even a little bit. They get back to the house and they discuss the situation with Cecil. Michael is happy they are working on things. Michael took the separation hard and it seems that he blames Simone more than Cecil. It’s nice to see a parent and child talk through issues and I feel like no matter how you feel about Simone and Cecil, they’ve raised good kids.
Contessa’s family is sitting around the kitchen table and her dad looks frail. They discuss his health and from the information her dad is giving her, it seems he may have cancer. He has refused treatment but he’s not in pain. They both end up in tears and despite Contessa’s fears, her dad is willing to fight and be there for her and his grandkids. They hug and I’m a crying mess. Contessa this season is, to me, the heart and soul of this show. She has amazing strength and courage,and for her to overcome her childhood and forgive her dad who was absentee tells me she also has amazing character. I will shout it from the rooftops how much I love her and I sincerely pray her dad is ok.
Mariah’s daughter Lauren is cleaning out her closet and is getting rid of her designer “baby” clothes. Lauren is small for her age and will be starting high school (that doesn’t seem real!). They have a birth control talk and Lauren is not ready for any of it.
Eugene and Toya look at a gorgeous home with a movie theater and spiral staircase-oh Lord here we go! Eugene says they paid off the IRS and saved some money so now they want to find their “forever” home. It’s a 2.9 million dollar home and their budget is a million. I’ve seen some growth here because TOYA tells Eugene that they can’t go over budget again and recreate old problems. She feels that having Eugene home and happy is more important than getting a home so over their budget. In this scene I am proud of Toya. This scene. She still has a lot to make up for with how she was to Contessa last week!
Heavenly prepares for her crab boil and dang it looks good!! She invited Quad and is nervous about Contessa and Toya seeing each other after Toya’s stupidity at the party. Alaura drops all the crabs on the ground which might be a foreshadow to tonight’s festivities. Simone is wearing her special “keepin it 100” shoes which are lucite with a hundred dollar bill in it. Super classy. She’s hurt by Quad and feels that they had a real friendship in the past and is now ghosted by Quad. Contessa arrives and tells the ladies about her dad’s health and how she’s upset by Toya’s messiness. And she looks STUNNING in this scene. Toya comes next and it’s awkward. They discuss Quad and Contessa feels that they should be supportive of her and her decision to back off from the group. Quad arrives and greets everyone in a surfacely-warm way. Very pageanty. Simone comes for Quad immediately and heads are gonna roll.
Simone wants to be caught up on all Quad’s news and Quad is not biting or owning up to backing off from the group. Toya chimes in to chastise Quad and Contessa leaps on her immediately saying that it’s a double standard because Toya hasn’t reached out and asked about her dad. Ugh Toya! Simone pounces on Quad and says that she doesn’t know why Quad is even there when she feels superior to to all of them. Quad asks Heavenly if it’s an ambush but Heavenly says it’s just how they feel. Toya comes over to ask why she’s upset and Quad tells Toya she’s not doing well then walks off crying. Contessa makes Heavenly go after Quad with her and Contessa hugs her and holds her while she cries. Mariah comes out to bring Quad her purse and Quad doesn’t thank her properly I guess? Quad told Mariah to put the purse int the car and Mariah tells her not to talk to her like that. They start screaming in each other’s faces. Quad runs into the house and Mariah goes after her trying to de-escalate the argument.
Quad slams the door on the cameras but when Heavenly opens the door to her salon (!!) they both seem a lot cooler. The rest of the ladies eat the food because hello, crab boil! Quad is hurt that the other ladies (especially Simone) attacked her when Simone knows how hard it is having marriage problems of her own. Quad says they aren’t sisterly and Heavenly goes OFF. She says they are all sisterly, Heavenly chased her down the driveway which is SISTERLY DAMN IT! Heavenly screams and screams and walks out of the house telling Quad to leave and go see her real sister friends.
Pheeeeew that was a lot!! Thank you all for reading and I look forward to your comments! See you next week when Jackie FINALLY comes to the party to bring some peace to the group and hopefully the screaming stops a little bit =)
