This episode had a lot going on. Let’s start at the beginning shall we…
The skating rink, Golden Glide in true “ATL” fashion, on oldies night…
April meets a handsome man who can’t skate and apparently forgot he had a cell phone in his pocket when it was time for him to get her number. Thank God Keisha was there to remind him. Keisha finds out at the ATM in the skating rink (was I the only one who found that weird? #shrugs) that the money in her account had been seized and in that realization the ladies rush to the car in hopes her beautiful white Aston Martin hadn’t been seized . It wasn’t and they’re shown driving home screaming like teenage girls having a good time.
Next, they show Keisha sitting on her kitchen counter enjoying some peach cobbler and ice cream. (Where did that peach cobbler come from anyway?) We later find out Keisha is more of a Breakfast cook and hey Raquel didn’t mention anything about making it, nonetheless, Raquel comes out to enjoy some and a serious convo ensues about Malcolm’s whereabouts, the $200 thousand Keisha owes, and Keisha asks Raquel for a favor.
Raquel foolishly assumes that she wants to borrow money, but she just wants her to run the store for a few weeks until her legal woes are over or someone buys it.
I really wanted some of that peach cobbler. Okay, that was my last mention about it, I promise.
Raquel is at V, in the office, when Omar walks in and reads her about getting to run the boutique instead of him, only to be called “a large orange fruit” aka ‘pumpkin.’ Then he tells her that her mother is in the front.
Her mother lets her know that she doesn’t approve of her life basically and that she can’t be settled until she’s married off to a wonderful man with just a few flaws like her ex fiance, Victor. Raquel wasn’t going for it, and then her mother spits out “you would be better to explain if you were in rehab” and in shock Raquel sashays away.
The cute guy, Jason, that April met turns out to be her substitute OBGYN while hers is out and she doesn’t realize it until he’s almost finished with her pelvic exam. He subsequently ends up getting his head squeezed tightly between her thighs. #Awkward
Whew all that happened before the first commercial break, yikes!
April’s cutie/OBGYN, Jason, texts her after the incident and still wants to take her out. While ordering he tells her that her whoo hoo is the most beautiful one he’s ever seen, after all he has seen thousands of vaginas. Then she eats some fruit after his suggestion to make IT taste sweet.
The next date they skip dinner and just go right into the sex. Yesssss! Get it April! He fulfills the prerequisite and all that jazz then asked her to shave it all off down under. April tells the girls it was well worth her time, but feels like he may be obsessed with her whoo hoo the next day. Her thoughts are confirmed when he comes over again and gives her a gift to keep it tight down there. She breaks it off with him.
After, last week’s episode I’m just glad my girl got broken off something proper. Can I get an Aaaaye Men! lol
Raquel is continuing her journey to live for her. She runs into the sexy stable boy Antonio (William Levy) who she shared her virginity with. Antonio is at the stables with the ladies. This is the perfect time for them to rekindle all the passion and lust between them. Too bad they got caught by Raquel’s mother and friends in the stable.
This leads to Raquel giving her mother a piece of her mind and taking control of her life. Antonio and Raquel go back to the stable at a better time to finish what they started. It was a tad bit cheesy for me because in reality it was probably smelling like horses and I dont want to get poked by hay either. I don’t care if a blanket is over it. Seeing as Raquel has been perfect her whole life I can see how this can be adventurous for her. Nothing wrong with going back to your roots I guess.
In the midst of all this, Raquel chooses to buy V from Val. She’s willing to blow her entire savings for it and still needs an investor. Raquel thinks she’s up to the task of being broke and chasing her dreams. Keisha lets her know that struggling is not cute seeing as Raquel has never had to struggle. Keisha gets Eve to invest with Raquel in V, but she thinks its risky and has to be sold on it very hard before agreeing.
“You Might Be Romanticizing Struggle” -Keisha tells naive Raquel
Keisha meets with Sean and finds out she still owes the money even though Malcolm appeared and has to go on a payment plan. Sean is slowly trying to creep his way back into her love life but Keisha is in love and loyal to Malcolm still.
The next day Sean comes to the apartment because Keisha isn’t answering her phone. Turns out she was making chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast to deal with her stress. Sean stays for breakfast and tells Keisha how her payment plan is going to be set up for the next five months. Then offers to make a few payments for her because he knows she can’t afford it, but he can. I love how Keisha remained neutral in that moment, she didn’t tell him ‘no’ nor did she get excited. Right when she begins to confide in him about her feelings for Malcolm to take her mind off the money the door bell rings.
Mental Note: Damn, if I’m gonna be a regular thousandnaire chick I know to keep some very wealthy men around me still. Keisha Taught Me!
It’s Malcolm at the door and Keisha is excited to see him. Malcolm, however isn’t happy to see Sean sitting on the balcony eating breakfast. He informs her that everything is finished and mayor Howard was arrested. Keisha informs him that Sean is just her lawyer. Malcolm agrees to pay her $200 thousand in back taxes and fees.
Sean comes to the boutique to inform her Malcolm paid the money and he is no longer her lawyer. He kisses her in an effort to get her back, but she wasn’t having it.
Malcolm messes up later that night when he lets it be known that he still takes care of Ashley financially. He tries to use the money he spent on her debt against her, but Keisha being the woman she is wasn’t having it and showed him to the door.
Why does Malcolm have to be sooo damn niggerish and a bad boy, yet so damn fine?! I may have to switch to Sean’s team because Malcolm is trippin.
Then there’s my boo Omar! I love him. He has a dog that he is obsessed with. Then the dog chews up a $800 pair of shoes when no one is watching it. And he even saw April’s vagina and wasn’t repulsed by it. Eve hits on him too!
“Are you still gay? You’re even cuter now” -Eve
FYI- ladies please stop hitting on gay men on the low, but do make him a good friend!
