Happy M2M Sunday! The sports gods are messing with me as both my Red Sox AND Patriots are playing again tonight, but these ladies will make it worth missing them for an hour! We open with Contessa in recovery and she did amazing-as if there was ever a doubt! My Contessa is strength personified.
Heavenly comes home from her Miami trip to Damon messing around with music, not greeting his wife as she thinks he should. She tells him about the trip and how she freaked out after seeing the room her father died in. Damon thinks that it’s a good thing she went back to Miami to deal with her past. He’s proud of her not sweeping it under the rug and refers to her as “Buddy” a few times. Damon thinks she’s “nice” but that she’s been through a lot.
Contessa comes home and is in bed, she will be out of commission for 4-6 weeks. Her kids immediately jump on her belly and chest and I cringe watching this. She must have been in so much pain with them jumping on her right after a double mastectomy! She talked to them patiently about not jumping on her and how she needs time to heal. God bless her, truly.
Jackie and Curtis are cleaning the outside furniture and they discuss the trip to Miami. Jackie says Heavenly had a tough upbringing. They discuss how the way you’re raised factors into the person you become. Curtis grew up with 13 brothers and sisters and he said they all pretty much towed the line. Wow. They are still looking for houses and Jackie is getting frustrated. She wants to move ASAP.
Toya and Eugene take their two boys to the building site of their new home. Their boys are so sweet and love the house. They worry about changing schools again-they’ve changed schools four times already- that seems like a lot. Toya fears all the changes will result in them losing friends but Eugene isn’t concerned. For all of Toya’s messiness they are a cute family.
Myles has come home from college and Cecil and Simone want him to get a part time job for the summer. Cecil wants all of them to live out of the north house and Simone is not that happy about it. She sees her clean, quiet house becoming a noisy mess. Simone and Cecil discuss the 9 month separation (with the boys at the table) and they rag on each other for going out a lot while separated. Michael tells them they both went out a lot so it’s even. Michael the diffuser!
Contessa is on recovery day 2. She’s in a lot of pain but is walking around and answers the door when Mariah and her friend Dr. Jarrett come to visit. They bring her flowers and want the surgery tea as they weren’t aware it was even happening until she texted them the day before. Contessa said she didn’t even text her family about the surgery until it was over, she didn’t want to worry everyone. She got implants right after the surgery and is happy she did that. Dr. Jarrett is having a housewarming party and Contessa won’t be able to go but she will send Scott in her place. She was happy to have them visit.
Quad meets up with her mom and Aunt Bev for lunch. She’s relieved to have #teamQuad around her at this time. A few days prior Quad had filed for divorce and left her house. Gregory and Quad have been texting but she wants to communicate through the attorneys. Aunt Bev is praying for a clean divorce. Quad feels that she will be able to open up and talk to the group now that she’s filed for divorce.
Cecil picks Simone up to go to the housewarming party but Simone is wearing a mini dress so Cecil wants to skip the party to spend quality time with that mini dress! Simone puts the horny breaks on and justs hopes Quad will come to the party.
Dr. Jarrett’s house is beautiful and everyone arrives bearing gifts. Will, Jarrett’s husband, greets Mariah and Aydin. Eugene isn’t able to make it but everyone else comes. Quad arrives and Toya makes a comment about not seeing Quad for a while which Quad takes offense to. The girls discuss Contessa’s surgery and Toya feels snubbed that she wasn’t told about the surgery. There’s a funny montage with Heavenly, Quad and Jackie all “texting” Toya about things like going to the bathroom just to keep her updated. Haha they’re right, Toya is a bit too needy when it comes to friendships-especially with Contessa who she was still not really talking to.
Heavenly, Damon, Curtis, Cecil and Simone go sit outside and Heavenly tells everyone there are a few fundamentals that men need: the first being honor and respect. The second is sex. Curtis and Cecil agree with the fundamentals and Cecil agrees as well. Quad and Jackie sit and talk. Quad is happy to see that Curtis and Jackie have moved on. Jackie wants Quad to open up and let her friends rally around her at this time-she’s clearly hurting and needs support. She and Jackie hug. Everyone has now gathered outside and Aydin wants to know where Greg is. Quad says in her talking head that Greg might be in a hotel room for all she knows. Mariah tries to shut Aydin up and Aydin seems confused. Toya points out that Quad is wearing her wearing ring so that must be a good sign? Aydin, shamed for asking where Greg was, goes inside and the guys go as well.
Jackie wants to know how to reconnect as a group as they have clearly disconnected. Quad tries to open up and Mariah keeps interrupting. Mariah confused me because she claims she wants Quad to open up but feels like it’s always about Quad. Quad makes the point that they all are asking and want to hear about Quad. Now she will not tell them about the divorce thanks to Mariah’s interruptions. And Heavenly is learning how NOT to be from Mariah. She says she’s grateful for Jackie and Simone’s friendship and hopes Quad will allow them all to be her friend.
A lot happened in this episode and I’m still processing it all! Wow. Well tune in next week when Aydin may or may not have a job after a merger and Toya and Quad square off when Quad opens up about the divorce. But most importantly Simone and Cecil had sex! YES! Should be a good one, see you next Sunday!!
