Happy Saturday night y’all!! I cut my girls night short to come home and blog about these women of medicine, so I’m hoping tonight’s episode is worth it and y’all are with me! We continue with the Mariah/Heavenly fight and Simone tries to talk to Mariah and Aydin to no avail. Everyone ends up leaving the dinner, which is sad because yet another beautiful dinner ruined. The next day Eugene is hosting a BBQ for all the couples. Eugene is hoping his BBQ will bring about some peace between everyone. The ladies go to the pool while the men cook, and the pool looks so nice! Sigh. Contessa tried to greet Toya and Toya flat out ignored her. She’s still very hurt that Contessa thought she purposely hit Contessa in the chest.
Simone is having a tough time with Contessa as well. She doesn’t like Contessa blaming Toya for something she didn’t do. Over to the men’s side, Damon is having a hard time with having argued with Aydin. All the men concur that Damon overreacted with Aydin, but Damon still feels hurt about Mariah accusing Damon of cheating. Aydin says well, Heavenly had insulted him and his family too so they’re in the same boat. Aydin says that Heavenly keeps bringing up the family which causes Mariah to lose her mind, so Damon agrees to talk to Heavenly about not doing that anymore. Aydin agrees to do the same and they bro it out.
The ladies catch Contessa up on the fighting from the night before and Heavenly admits that she got very angry and shouldn’t have acted the way she did. Mariah apologizes as well, but to Quad. She says that she probably instigated the whole thing. Quad receives her apology but doesn’t believe it. Mariah apologizes to Heavenly but doesn’t admit to breaking the glass on purpose, she says she accidentally broke it-which production shows us is a lie. Heavenly walks out when Mariah refers to accidentally breaking the glass like Damon had a few trips ago.
Jackie tries to bring Contessa back into the circle and brings up the Toya hitting her chest incident. Toya feels like Contessa requires a lot of attention and Toya starts screaming at her. Simone tries to get Toya to become a leader and be in charge. Toya agrees with her and says it’s a new day, let’s all move on. They all eat the BBQ and everyone is happy. Everyone gets ready for Toya and Eugene’s anniversary dinner and they show incredible footage of Antigua. Again, they dine outside and it looks phenomenal. Toya and Eugene start a game of talking about sex and Heavenly right out the gate gets down and dirty, which Damon is embarrassed by. Simone says she’s a basic girl when it comes to sex. Toya takes issue with that and Simone says that Eugene had to go to the basement alone a lot, so whatever Toya was doing wasn’t working. I think they should have the men BBQ every meal because the fighting happens at beautifully decorated outside dinners.
Toya says no one can talk unless they have the “talking biscuit”. Eugene gives Simone the “talking biscuit” and says if she wants to use the word basic for her sex life, then she should use it. Toya starts freaking out on Eugene for interrupting her and throws the biscuit at him.Eugene tells Toya to stop being bossy because Simone couldn’t say what she wanted to say. Toya is crying and is a hot mess. She’s near sobbing at the table so Simone takes her to the bathroom to get her away from Eugene, who is confused by Toya’s meltdown.
Simone tells Toya she’s lashing out at Eugene when she shouldn’t be. They go back to the table and Toya hugs Eugene and apologizes to everyone. Toya explains that she’s taking birth control which has made her emotions all over the place. The doctors don’t seem to agree that it’s an excuse but personally speaking, I can empathize. It can mess you up. Toya just wants to have a great trip but can’t stop crying. Toya tells Contessa that she would never purposely hurt her and wants to be in a better place with her. Contessa agrees and they seem to come to a better place. Toya then says she will pray for Heavenly and Mariah’s relationship because it’s petty and disrespectful on both ends, and their husband’s almost fought over it. Mariah gets defensive and blames Damon for the near fight. Mariah feels it’s time for her and Aydin to go.
Simone asks Mariah if she can have a silent relationship with Heavenly. She says she can with both Quad and Heavenly, but they can’t make sly comments about her or her mother. Quad says it has to the same for everyone, that Mariah can’t make comments about Damon either. Family is family and they all have to respect it. Mariah and Aydin have a “private” conversation about how awful the group is that is overheard by Eugene-who is sitting across from them. Eugene calls them out and says all they are doing is trying to get everyone to get along so if they can’t get along, that’s not everyone else’s problem. Mariah and Aydin leave and Toya goes after them. Mariah says that they feel they don’t belong in the group anymore. Eugene doesn’t want Toya stressing over them and that if they want to belong, they’ll make an effort to be in the group. The rest of the couples end up having a great dinner, so at least it ends well.
The next day the group goes on a boat excursion. Toya and Heavenly arrive in the same outfit. Mariah and Aydin had chartered the boat for the day, and they’re calling it “the Love Boat”. They’re hopeful they’ll all get along-at least for the day. It’s a pontoon boat with lots of alcohol and lots of gorgeous views. That clear water!! Ugh. It’s so beautiful. Simone seems to be getting tipsy and starts in on Contessa. Simone thinks Contessa is bringing up the surgery way too much and thinks she’s using it as an excuse to not be around the ladies. Simone gets super loud and gets in Contessa’s face.
Next week: it looks like Toya and Contessa make up, the doctors see patients in Antigua and Heavenly gets a re-do at couples therapy. I think it was well worth cutting my girls night short! Can’t wait to see what y’all think of it in the comments!!
