3. Take the Test
Here’s the thing about Erica Jean. I had to go to the show’s site to really get some insight into who she is besides the leading role in Love & Hip Hop’s adaptation of Maury. She went to Howard University (Hey, Bison!), where she majored in theater arts and has performed in an Off Broadway production of James Baldwin’s Blues for Mister Charlie.
Apparently, now she’s continuing her education to become a nurse. None of this makes for interesting TV in the ideas of show producers, but I had to dig up something about her besides what they’re offering. Thus far, all we get from Erica Jean is that she admittedly used her child to hurt a man’s heart. That is despicable no matter what she feels may have provoked it.
In any event, she’s agreed to Saigon’s request for a DNA test. Even her friend Mistic – yep, like the fruit drink – co-signs the request and she can’t even stand Saigon. Their scenes make me so sad, particularly because there’s a child involved who will grow up to see the multiple ways he’s been exploited. Now let me turn my conscience down. The volume is too loud and ruining the show for me.
