"Why Her?" The 9 Best Lines From Last Night's Episode Of 'Power'

As different as Holly, Angela and Tasha are, all three women will go to great lengths for the men they love.

Holly, Angela and Tasha maybe different women, but all three will go to great--sometimes misguided, but always necessary--lengths to protect the men they love.

In episode 206 of Power titled "Why Her?" viewers continue to see the consequences of Ghost's actions swirl out of control. Ghost must try and keep an eye on Angela as her investigation closes in on Tommy, all the while trying to successfully push double the contraband for Lobos before he arrives for his payment.

And while Tasha and Angela are different sides to the same coin, both women are coming to terms with Ghost's deceit. Tasha is still reeling from her husband's affair, while Angela struggles to accept the fact that Ghost and Jamie are the same person. Emotionally paralyzed and unsure if the man she loves is a good guy trapped in an ugly world, Angela gives Holly a chance to provide substantial evidence that proves Jamie is Lobos' distributor. Holly then tries to move heaven and earth to get the Feds off her back only to have her efforts backfire.

Knowing she has the upper hand, Holly threatens Angela by exposing her relationship with Ghost. Angela let's her have her fun for a while, but not before demanding Holly provide actual proof Jamie St. Patrick is Ghost.

2) "Boys need their fathers. Maybe your husband can talk with him... if he's available." -- Mrs. Chambers

Tariq is misbehaving in school now that Ghost is no longer living at home. Tasha is called to the principal's office where Mrs. Chambers begins to pry into Tasha's home life. As she demonstrates shallow interest, Tasha quickly puts her in her place "I didn't realize my donation paid for all this concern."

3) "We ain't making rockets, Riff. We're slinging dope. Junkies want their fix regardless." -- Ghost

With Ghost out of the house, Shawn has front row access to Tasha, and is using this as a chance to get close to her in her time of need. Shawn maybe naive and young, but he's fully aware that if he's going to take his shot, now is the time.

6) "Yeah I heard you. You said you're not staying." -- Tariq

Ghost realizes the separation between he and Tasha is having a negative effect on Tariq. Ghost picks his kids up from school and sternly tells Tariq their home life is no excuse to start fights. Unfazed by what his father said, Tariq only hears that he's not staying or coming home.

Tasha is livid when she learns her husband's mistress is not only a flame from high school but a U.S. attorney.

Kissing Game. She's got my ❤ on a string. @kaaviajames 💋💋💋

A post shared by Gabrielle Union-Wade (@gabunion) on Dec 6, 2018 at 6:38pm PST

"Kissing seems so harmless, but research suggests that you could spread oral bacteria called mutant streptococci through saliva if you have active tooth decay," said one commenter, giving an unwelcome dose of cyber parenting. "And this could increase your child's risk of tooth decay."

With hundreds of people giving unrequested advice, Union offered a response to the comments.

"Hey guys, I appreciate all the concern about kisses on the mouth and labored breathing,” the 46-year-old wrote. "I am blessed enough to have a nurse here with us while at work. Kaav is healthy and I don’t even touch her without washing and sanitizing myself and everything and everyone that comes into contact with her.”

A classy comeback, the actress stood her ground while defending her right to parent in her own way.

50 Cent, Starz CEO Detail $150 Million Deal, 'Power' Spinoffs

50 Cent continues to flourish as a television producer as he spilled the tea to Business Insider during their Ignition conference this week on some projects he has coming in relation to his hit series Power.

In a sit-down interview, 50 along with Starz's CEO Chris Albrecht, told moderator Nathan McAlone that although he'll no longer appear on the Omari Hardwick-headed show, he'll be bringing three spin-offs from the show into on-air fruition.

One of the spin-offs will be a prequel revolving around 50's slain character Kanan. Meanwhile, all three spin-offs will be moving simultaneously, according to Albrecht.

"The prequel is my spin-off. I get the chance to come back. I'm dead," 50 said. "It's cool, though. It gives the chance to show the world where all of these characters grew in so you can see the defining moments that developed their imperfections that people are attracted to at the moment. It's exciting. It's TGE, the golden era."

Albrecht chimed in on 50's announcement, saying, "I'm happy to have them all work, but we're determined to have at least one.

"it's important because there's a lot of fans out there that want to see more of those characters and new stuff like BMF [Black Mafia Family], which is going to be amazing. Not easy, but amazing."

Black Mafia Family is another show that will be overseen by 50, about the infamous drug organization that ran rampant in the 1980s headed by Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory.

This news comes almost two months after the October announcement that 50 signed a multi-series deal with the network worth up to $150 million.

Check out the conversation below.

Snoop Dogg Advises Kevin Hart To Tell The Oscars To "Suck A D**k"

Kevin Hart has pulled out of hosting the Oscars after refusing to apologize for his resurfaced tweets that appeared to share homophobic views. The gig may have been Hart's dream job, but Snoop Dogg is telling him not to worry. Instead, he suggested the comedian should tell the Academy to "suck a d**k."

Snoop gave Kevin some advice in a video on Instagram on Friday (Dec. 7). "Don't trip, that ain't our kind of shit anyways. Oscars? Yeah right, come do the BET Awards," Snoop said in the video. "They don't care. You a comedian, crackin' jokes...really? Y'all want me to host it now? Nah, I don't think so. I got s**t to do, and I got way more customers before I get to you. Kevin Hart, smoke a blunt. Tell the Academy to suck a d**k or die trying. F**k 'em. We still love you, n***a."

As previously reported, Kevin Hart landed at the center of controversy after someone re-discovered his tweets from 2011. He reportedly claimed that he would hit his son if he was ever caught playing with dolls. The comedian stated that the Academy called him Thursday night (Dec. 6), and gave him an ultimatum: apologize or step aside. Hart decided to pass on the apology and later stepped down from his position. Amidst his exit, he also offered an apology to the LGBTQ+ community. "I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past," he said.

The Academy hasn't announced a new host at this time. The 91st Oscars ceremony will kick off on Feb. 24, 2019. Check out Snoop's advice to Hart in the video below.
