1. Evelyn Is Not Happy About That Kind of Humor
While Evelyn was shooting her VIBE Vixen cover, Tami reached out by phone to see if Evelyn was still upset over Tasha’s head butt joke. She was and not long after that scene did we see Evelyn meet up with Suzie. Evelyn made it clear how hurt she was that Suzie, her friend, would allow Tasha to make light of Evelyn’s domestic violence incident without correction. Suzie being Suzie, she felt bad, apologized and promised not to let it happen again. And then Suzie being Suzie, revealed some new information – namely that Tasha has referenced a head butt not once, but twice.
Later on we got a very good display of passive aggressiveness from Tasha. As Evelyn explained how Tasha’s comments were in poor taste, Tasha resisted a bit and proceeded to throw Evelyn invoking the story of her husband cheating with their chef into her novel. To Evelyn, it wasn’t the same, but ultimately what she wanted to say but didn’t was, “You hurt me, so I wanted to hurt you.”
Instead, we got Tasha saying her intentions were never to hurt Evelyn. I don’t believe that and I doubt Evelyn does either, especially since she noted in her confessional that Tasha was making the comments on purpose. Why yes, she was Evelyn – predictably to score screen time. Mission accomplished, sis.
2. Basketball Wives Fighting Breast Cancer
As the cast treks back into familiar, ratings-grabbing territory, the “We do good things, too” tone of the show post-wave of Internet scrutiny continued. It began with Evelyn and Tami discussing a letter they received from a viewer who cited their on-air mammograms as the basis for her own trip to the doctor. That trip led to her discovering that she had cancerous cells in her breast. Of course, she applauded the women for their awareness efforts and how it effectively saved her life.
In a separate segment, the woman in question, named Michelle, told the two along with Shaunie, “Y’all put that battery in my pack.” Evelyn said during the segment, “So much negativity in what we do, so to hear something positive is refreshing.”
See, folks? They don’t just throw bottles at each other, talk about each other behind each other’s backs and curse each other out. They save lives, too. Now back to our regularly scheduled bitch out fest.
3. SEW WINS
Do you all remember Sheree Whitfield’s “fashion show with no fashion” featured on The Real Housewives of Atlanta? Tasha offered the Basketball Wives equivalent in the not so grand opening of her weave bar. First off, the location is in the hood as so noted by Tami, Evelyn, and Shaunie. Secondly, Tasha doesn’t seem to know much about the industry in which she’s invested. Hell, she can’t even spell “sew ins” as evidenced by the salon’s signs saying “CELEBRITY SEW WINS vs. Celebrity Sew Ins.”
Sure, she can launch a party probably sponsored by the network and some alcohol company, but do you actually know hair, woman? No, the answer is no. As Tami – who has her own weave line in addition to a newly inked deal for a cosmetic line – tried to teach her a thing or two. What does Tasha say in response? “I don’t know nothing about none of that stuff.” Tasha wouldn’t be the first person to throw money at a business opportunity with limited knowledge, but on top of nothing being set up to truly work inside of your weave bar on top of knowing nothing about weaves themselves, why are you here? Couldn’t she have opened a Chipotle instead? The hood needs a Chipotle, too.
Tasha got quite defensive when Tami and co asked questions, though the unintended comic relief – aka Big Diva – helped settle her nerves. You see, Big Diva was the name of a giant costume that sort of looked like Tamar Braxton and Dora The Explorer’s baby. Apparently, Big Diva will be touring Brownsville, handing out fliers, trying to drum up some business. Poor Big Diva is gonna get her wig split. Well, if the weave bar ever opens.
P.S. Tami, you looked good last night. You are so pretty when you’re not acting like a raging maniac who just slapped the hell out of her anger management counselor.
4. It’s Your Party And I’ll Leave If I Want To
Tami couldn’t make Tasha’s party because she said her eyes looked an absolute mess. What brought on the sudden illness? Tami suggested that Tasha may have a bit of an asbestos problem in her “old building.” Oh, Tami. That was shady and you know it…though you may have been on to something.
As for the remaining ladies, they did go to the party only they dipped out early because the party was DOA. They brought Tasha a lot of dildos, though. Does that count for nothing? Not to Tasha, who would have preferred their presence as a gift versus the stuff from the sex shop she could’ve ordered herself. You can expect the shade and verbal wars to be centered on that next week. I’m so excited I could bang my head on my desk until I pass out.
Okay, fine. The episode does look somewhat interesting. Still, the party was wack and they waited two hours for her and they don’t even know her like that. Why spend an hour dissecting that? We’ll find out next week, won’t we?
5. One Last Thing
Evelyn, was that a fur coat and leather bag I saw you in as you entered Tasha’s misspelled and not functional weave salon? If so, was that scene shot before you showed butt cheeks for animal rights and publicity? Of course, you could’ve easily changed your stance after learning some information, so don’t take it as shade. I’m just curious ‘cause as of now something in the milk ain’t clean.
Whatever the case, I plan on getting a leather jacket soon for the cooling temperatures. Thing is, though, I’m not a PETA spokesperson. You are. Let me know if that was a fake leather bag and faux fur coat when you get a moment.
