5. Lil’ Mo Vs. Dawn
Every week, Lil’ Mo reminds us that she wants to relocate her family to Los Angeles and last night’s episode was no different. While getting what looked like her 90th tattoo, Lil’ Mo tried to talk about the idea with her husband-manager, who didn’t seem all that excited about the prospects of going Hollywood. I’m not sure if Lil’ Mo relocated yet, but after watching her on this show for a few weeks, I can see why she was so parched about the idea.
I used to be a fan of her back in the 2000s, but her Twitter persona can be a bit much at times (it happens to the best of us). However, on this, on this show right here – she is TV gold. Have I already asked if she’s gotten a spinoff yet? Either way, has she? If not, why not?
Meanwhile, the closing scene featured Mo and Dawn Robinson going tit for tat over Dawn’s decision to abruptly quit the monologue – leaving the production without its creator, Kelly Price, and the girl from En Vogue and Lucy Pearl. Mo wasn’t having it, calling her a coward. Dawn tried to challenge Mo’s Christianity over her leveling criticism for her decision. Mo wouldn’t have it, telling her that her God isn’t a quitter. Mo is right. Dawn walks around like she’s afraid of her shadow and made it clear in the first few episodes that she suffers from some nominal level of stage fright at times. Moreover, it’s not as if she’s not known to quit – just ask the members of En Vogue and Lucy Pearl.
By the way, Dawn didn’t show up to the reunion taping, citing “scheduling conflicts.” Shocker.
