Hello everyone!!! My Sox and Pats both won today so expect tonight’s recap to reflect that happiness =) Oh Lawd y’all, we open with Mariah bringing her daughter Lauren to Simone’s office for her first OBGYN visit. Simone actually delivered Lauren so it’s pretty cool that she is her doctor going into her teenage years. Mariah must leave the room and Simone and Lauren talk. Lauren seems very mature and has a great head on her shoulders.
Jackie invites Quad over to talk. Jackie reiterates that she is there for Quad and wants her to open up because having been there, she can understand how she’s feeling. Gregory calls Quad in the middle of the conversation and Quad ignored it. Jackie was kind of shocked that she didn’t even pick up, so I think that prompts Quad to pick up after the second call. I bet Dr. G wishes he hadn’t because Quad is an icebox when they talk. He’s wondering where she’s been and she just says at work. It was awkward. Jackie is now very shocked and Quad becomes emotional. She says she’s about 10 seconds away from divorcing him and she’s very disappointed. She cries and Jackie comforts her.
Heavenly’s son Damon Jr comes home to visit and Heavenly is badgering him about school and girlfriends. He wisely says it’s all good and has no girlfriends. Smart kid. She and Daddy Damon discuss her visit with the anger management therapist and Damon agrees with his assessment that Mariah is a huge trigger for Heavenly’s anger due to reminding her of her sister and her past. Heavenly wants to go back to Miami and deal with her past like Daddy Damon did with his past last season. She wants to take Jackie and Simone with her and he agrees that they’re good friends to take for a trip like that.
Eugene is hosting a guys cookout and all the husbands come including Gregory. They smoke cigars, drink Hennessy, eat BBQ and talk about the wives. Curtis says things are going well with Jackie and feels a little protective over Gregory since he was in that position last season. Gregory says it’s been really hard not having a partner as a wife and admits to acting out and acting stupid. Greg feels that Quad doesn’t desire him and that they don’t connect. Cecil confesses to not feeling like he did enough to save his marriage until everyone at the reunion prompted him to act more. Eugene comes from another perspective of when is it time to call it quits? Sometimes enough is just enough. Overall the men are supportive of him however he decides to handle his marriage.
Eugene and Toya are still searching for their “forever home” and they go see a new construction outside of Atlanta in Alpharetta (TT, how far is that from Atlanta?). It’s a northern suburb were a lot of pro-athletes live. Very nice. They meet with the builder who is building their house-their budget is 2 million and they get a lot for their money! 9,000 square feet, 6 bedrooms, pool, two story closet for Toya! We’ll see how that plays out.
Simone is at the North house and Cecil comes over with their son Michael. Simone says that Cecil is staying over more and feels their on a good track. Last year Cecil got laid off and he’s trying to figure out what he wants to do. He started a “kidz force” app but it’s on hold, the designer’s company went under. He wants to spend more time on the North side and not have Simone stay on the South side as much. She’s loving her independence and isn’t looking forward to living with everyone full time again but will for the sake of reuniting.
Here’s Contessa finally!!! She goes to see her surgeon about doing the total mastectomy. She’s had abnormal mammograms for the past ten years and her mom had breast cancer, so she’s making the decision to get a preventative prophylactic double mastectomy. She’s seen what her mother went through with cancer and doesn’t want her kids to go through it. It’s a highly invasive surgery and it will take 3-4 weeks to fully heal. Heavenly packs for her trip and she’s excited to go to Miami. She’s nervous but she’s ready to deal with her past. Daddy Damon says he’s going out one night while she’s gone and Heavenly hesitates but says it’s okay for him to go out.. Jackie, Simone and Heavenly fly to Miami and Jackie is going to hold Heavenly accountable for her actions and will not allow her to not deal with her past. Simone just wants to understand Heavenly better.
The ladies arrive in Miami and already Heavenly starts. She calls them “bitches” and Jackie takes exception. Jackie reminds Heavenly that even though she may not mean to offend, she has to think of other people’s feelings before speaking. They’re staying in a two bedroom suite and Jackie gets her own room. Wow,they have an entire buffet set up upon their arrival which looks amazing! Heavenly admits to being nervous and a little excited to be back home. She was a shy, overweight child growing up so that’s where she learned to hone her sharp tongue and create her angry alter ego Little Kim. Jackie says that she feels when Heavenly feels insecure, she will go for the jugular and instead of facing what she’s running from, she uses her words as weapons. Jackie feels it can be a learning trip for all of them. Heavenly says she’s not being retaliatory because Heavenly’s mom called her a bitch so for her, it’s no big deal. Heavenly gets defensive and says she likes her way rather than Jackie’s passive way. Jackie calls her out immediately for deflecting. This will be a long trip for Simone and Jackie I’m afraid.
Heavenly feels that she’s being ganged up on when Simone agrees with what Jackie says. Simone recalls when she went back to her old house and wants a pinky swear that Heavenly won’t get combative when she inevitably gets flooded with emotions. Heavenly isn’t too sure she can promise that but she will try. Back at Contessa’s house, she receives a call from the surgeon that they had an opening 24 hours from now to do the surgery. She is shocked but ultimately gathers strength and agrees to take the surgery time for the following day.
Next week the ladies hit Miami, Quad talks about a divorce and Contessa has the surgery. Oh my brave girl!! Please join me next week, looks to be another great episode!!
