5. Suzie Is Celibate…And Hates Tami’s Advice
Suzie’s update kicked off with talk of two eight-hour long surgeries and the scoop that she hasn’t had sex in 10 months. Shortly thereafter, Evelyn once again became the focus as Tami prodded her about her marriage going bust. There was one shift in the story as Evelyn tried to clarify past comments that most took as her giving Chad a pass to cheat.
According to Evelyn’s remix, Chad should know that if you mess around birds, understand that they have nothing to lose and are quick to put you on blast, therefore instead of being blindsided, let her know. That wasn’t a clarification so much as it was expressing the exact same sentiment in a different fashion, but okay, Eve, whatever you say.
Then came the most uncomfortable portion of the show – Tami’s push for Evelyn to work things out with Chad. Tami, one of the poster children of unnecessary violence, argued that “Sometimes s**t happens.” Also, “Mistakes will be made.” And: “You can’t stay away and expect him to do the right thing.” Plus: “You have to be working on this together.” Not to be outdone, Evelyn has to “step out on faith.” Then came the ear-burning statement, “I think that now he understands what the repercussions are now.”
When Shaunie asked if she would give her daughter this same advice, Tami said she would. In her confessional, Suzie said: “I felt like I was the only one at the table who felt Tami’s advice was total bullshit.”
On second thought, maybe we will see some growth.
