Single Ladies Season 2 Episode 10 “Fast Love”

I know I’ve been slipping. I have a valid excuse(s) but I’ll spare you and get right to it.

April Beat The P***y Up

She and Reggie are so wack to me because they’re both selfish. I felt her planning their first time having sex was weak. This bitch aint cook no meal (and we know she can cook), she didn’t have a candle lit, she didn’t even put music on. All she did was dress up, read some sex articles in a magazine (right before he got there) and then told him her plan. There was no build up, romance, or sensuality to it. She should’ve read that magazine earlier in the day while getting her nails done or something. Then cook a bomb little meal set to candle light and soft music. Flirt all night then have him for dessert. Instead she’s looking up like #howmybootyendupintheair? wishing it was over already

She was mad because he’s banging the headboard and might I add sweating, but bitch you’re just laying there. She wasn’t even participating. I believe she assumed some responsibility in the wack sex both times. Check your email, boo!

Now she was on to something when she said “I always have an orgasm… with myself,” spoken like a true woman who hasn’t had sex with a man in a very long time. #sarcasm

She eventually has a talk with him and then the sex was amazing. All of that could’ve been eleviated if she would’ve had him fulfill The Prerequisite anyway. #ImJustSaying I’m with Keisha I don’t fake it, honey. Its mine I get it (2Chainz voice).

Wait, but why did Reggie ask if she was okay down there?! Ooh, he tried it.

Raquel It’s About Time

Another lost soul in this world of dating. I do have to give her props on lighting some candles and putting on that red bustier for Charles. Too bad he brought a friend that night. She was trying to get a piece the entire episode and finally got it in the end. I must say Raquel isn’t a foreplay kind of girl either apparently. She was ready to just get right to it when they were jumping on the bed. What’s with these chicks?

I’m so mad Charles took her literally when she said “build up.” She meant over the evening not a week. Are adults really this clueless about sex?! All this extra stuff is not needed as far as I’m concerned. When Charles sat her down on the floor I truly don’t believe Raquel was into she was just horny and willing to do what needed to be done to finally get the D. lol

I enjoyed when she slept with Nate way more than with Charles because it was more realistic and felt real. Charles was trying to add his intelligence to it and stuff like nobody cares. I’m not opposed to anything new, but less is more sometimes. We will see what Raquel has to say next week about the sex. She’s probably gonna be all “it was magical” or some dumb shit. She gets on my nerves sometimes with that bull shit. Girl please, you like to fuck stop tryna make it sound whimsical. lol

I will say I’m glad that her and April have settled down and are serious with one man.

Keisha Cashing Out

She checked the mess out of Malcolm in the beginning, but at the end of the day she still met with him after her date with Winston. Let’s be real she could’ve made him wait until the next day. I’m just glad to see Malcolm, especially without Taylor’s ass always around even though she kept popping up. Was she stalking him? Why was she just poppin up everywhere anyway?

Anyway, I’m glad she shut Raquel and April down about her trying to be in her business because sometimes you gotta let things marinade before you serve it up. They’re alway acting like they really know the tea with her and Sean and Malcolm, but they don’t. They don’t even know about her date with Winston. They wouldn’t have known about Malcolm either had he not come by Indulgence. All they know is Sean and that seems to be lukewarm compared to her career right now. She has three men vying for her love as of now, who will she pick?

Yes, Malcolm wants her too. He’s waiting for her to fold all her cards for him that’s why he’s keeping Taylor around. Its a chess move to make her jealous and fold quicker.

I loved how they did business together. Building an empire together. While Taylor has nothing to offer at that moment but her good looks. Keisha is still winning. If you weren’t sure before you knew once Taylor stepped to her at the end of the episode. Taylor is just trying to get married so she can get Malcolm’s money and knows Keisha is the only one who can ruin it for her. She’s so thristy its not even funny up here talkion bout ‘I’m in love with him.” What does that have to do with Keisha?!  Bitch. Boo. Bye!

I commend Taylor for trying to fight for her “man” but she’s still wack for even being the situation she’s in.

Am I the only one who found it sexy when Malcolm checked Taylor?! Yes, I enjoyed watching that.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the cat fight between Layla and Sharon. When “Girlfight” by Brooke Valentine came on it was a wrap. I was done. It gave me everything I needed and more. They were throwing flowers and stuff. How did everyone but them end up in the pool?! It was just too much for me.

Was that dress Layla had on from Adrienne Balion’s collection? It looked just like the dress Julissa had on in Empire Girls Sunday night, but in beige. (Yes I watch Empire Girls too).

I’m glad the two ladies squashed the beef and ended up getting Keisha a huge commission, can you say cha ching!

Omar Relationship Status

He’s back!! He’s back to burning, teaching, and calling them ‘bitches’. He and Keisha are back to being a tag team duo when it comes to schooling the children, Raquel and April. He looks better too.

He’s got a man this episode who is playing 2012 social media games. We’ve all dealt with this type of person before. Just doing the most.

Omar was a fool for trying to play sick… or should I say Raquel was a fool for really believing he was sick. I wish my employers were nice enough to give me the day off at the first sign of a cough. Val would’ve offered him some tea and let him rest in the back while it was slow. This fool let him go home only to find out he went to six flags #classic.

Omar’s boo was way too pressed on Facebook and blew up his whole spot. lol He had to go. You’re suppose to wait until you actually meet the friends before you add them on every social network possible. He wasn’t really tryna be on anyway because he didn’t step foot in Indulgence. If you want to get with Omar or any of the ladies you have to come to the boutique and that’s an unofficial official rule.

Morgan All You Gotta Do Is Say ‘Yes’

Morgan is my new boo! I love her! She’s flyy, she keeps it real, and she is hella sassy. She fits right in.

Tyrone (or whatever his name is) deserved to get the comment she made about him being dumb. Why are you over 30 and don’t know what 10% of $500 is? I can only imagine what his finances look like. Sounds like to me she dodged a bullet.

Jabari is clearly sensitive, who’s not going to laugh when somebody trips? lol She needs to keep doing her thing because it’s getting the weak men to leave sooner.

Quick Story: One time I was on a date and the guy hit his head on a sign while we were walking. I didn’t laugh because I was in shock but I did smile extra hard. Hahaha It happens to the best of them.

Now, I am going to need her not to be running up to her daughter’s school over foolishness. Two weeks of detention for talking back to a substitute teacher? The principal could’ve told her that over the phone and called it a day. I thought her daughter had really done something delinquent, after all she is a thief.

Until next week… keep it funky!

Single Ladies Season 2 Recap “Dueces”

Last week I didn’t do a recap on the sixth episode of Single Ladies because I felt like it was a turning point in the season. Things are about to change and pick up with this new episode and I just wanted to reflect on the ladies love lives. As we see all of their careers are on point and taken care of for the most part, but their love lives are a mess.

April “You’re Not Bomb”

As we all know by now the season started two weeks after the last season ended and I find it very interesting that someone who is suppose to be going through a divorce and was a part of a huge scandal is just living life single, sexy, and free out in these streets. Women who are going through a divorce don’t typical jump right into dating. Not only that but she hasn’t brought up or mentioned her divorce at all (to my recollection), except when she was cooking that fried bologna for Jack.

From my observation of April so far I have to say she’s selfish. She really doesn’t care about anybody but herself and the outcome. Everything has been about her and her career and what she wants when dating- not that there is something wrong with that, it is what it is. Afterall, she is 25.

I came to this conclusion based on several incidents in the past two seasons so far. Her cheating last season and not wanting to have kids. The fact that she never thought about the consequences of her affair and thought she could work it out with Daryl. SMH In this season she pressed Keisha about hanging out when she was dealing with a break up.

She went from wanting to be a kid in a single girls candy store to actually meeting someone who wanted to be all up in that pussy only to dump him. WTF! Then she couldn’t date to save her life and was being hella thirsty. Not to mention her vibrator went out on her. That’s when she finally met Jack at the strip club and tried to keep him a secret- why are you grown lying to other adults? Girl Byyyyeeee!

She pressed Jack about his lifestyle as a stripper, even though she met him at his job, and wouldn’t have sex with him because of it.

I feel like that’s very hypocritical of her seeing as she’s a female club promoter. We all know it can be a misogynist business and a bit wack if you ask me, especially compared to being A&R for a record company and artist. I may be short sighted but I don’t see the longevity of being a party promoter. Not to mention she has no college degree (just the facts).

Finally, the fact that she never tried to really get to know Bobby Monay. She just wanted him to do the job so she could benefit. She never really tried to connect with him and his personal life or any level other than professional and that’s why he kept playing her ass. Although, she did call his momma, but that was after Keisha put her up on game.

I’m glad that the next episode will bring her past back because it never went away in my head.

Raquel “You’re Not On”

Raquel is beautiful, young, and able to get any man she wants pratically, but the men we have seen her deal with she has not benefitted off of. Not only that but we really don’t know what her dating mission statement is. We know Keisha is just tryna get hers, April wants to date, and Val wanted to meet Mr. Right. Raquel is all over the place the only thing we know is she wants is ‘passion’. Passion is not all that hard to get in the grand scheme of dating. What are you going to do with the passion once you get it?

Victor, cheated on her and I understand why she walked away from it all, but once again if it wasn’t for Keisha she wouldn’t even have the ring to show for it. I’m not advocating being a user, but I am advocating benefitting where you can from a relationship.

She then got with Antonio which we can let slide on that rekindle an old flame and rebellion. He still played her though on that sex addict tip.

I feel like she slept with Tony and then gave up the game at halftime when she was about to be chillin’ in the White House. Girl, get your life. You’ve already slept with him and got invited to meet Michelle Obama, you couldn’t hold on just a little longer to put Michelle up on your boutique so she can go shopping next time she’s in Atlanta. #Imjustsaying

Now, she gets with Scotty which I was glad, but how are you gonna play him when he’s on par with you minus maybe his background. You said you want passion so why are you looking so deeply into things with him. Just let it flow and have fun, girl! Here she goes again unsure, but still sleeps with him. Then Charles, from the boule, appears and you find a scapegoat to dump Scotty. She would’ve stuck by him if she didn’t see Charles right before.

She should’ve had a girls night out and left Scotty at home instead of taking him to the club. Here he gets embarrassed because April doesn’t have as much pull as she thinks and this fool wants to order a beer like he’s of age. When does he turn 21 anyway? Poor Scotty got embarrassed and dumped in the same night. They’re gonna run into each other again afterall they’re neighbors.

It shall be interesting to see how things change for her now that she reconnected with Charles. I predict he might last a couple of episodes, maybe even longer. I can’t wait to see. In the next episode she’s gonna be dating two guys at once. This shall be interesting.

Keisha “You Got Done”

Poor Keisha! The woman with all the tricks, tools, and knowledge. Ms Keisha “Aint Nothing Going On But The Rent” Green finally falls in love with Malcolm only to break up with him after about six months because his ex-wife, Ashley, wouldn’t go away like an EX is suppose to.

I believe that Keisha has made all the right decision when it comes to their relationship, but in this case love just doesn’t conquer all. As we see from Malcolm’s ex-wife and current girlfriend, Taylor, he wants power, wealth, and status more than he wants love. Malcolm’s brother confirmed it too when he and Keisha ran into each other. Now the question is where does she go from here? Fight for Malcolm (which I doubt) or get with Sean (which I also doubt)? You never though with her. She always has tricks up her sleeve.

Its a shame that she kind of shot herself in the foot by tryna press Taylor not realizing how much ammo she actually had. Raquel did kinda gas her head a bit about Malcolm still loving her. Now, Malcolm is cutting off all ties with Keisha which probably has her feeling sick. I know I was sick at the end of the episode. SICK!

I will say in the midst of her losing when it comes to love, she’s winning in general. Sean is there for her in every compacity- financially, emotionally, career, legally- he’s there when she needs him.

She also wins because Malcolm shoved out $200 thousand for her IRS problems and bought her Aston Martin twice. At the end of the day he does love Keisha its just a matter of when will it be enough for him.

Kiesha is never short on men or money although it might seem like it sometimes. If you didn’t notice she skimmed money off the top of that stack that came from under the couch then got the rest of the money from Sean because she wasn’t going to use all her stashes of money at the end of the day.

I’m glad she has a new career now in real estate which is she is doing pretty well in. She handled Val leaving pretty well too.

Sidenote: I’m glad that the show is letting us know that old school southern values are still in place. With the Kappa Boule Ball and the way marraige is discussed among the upper class families. Marraige is more of an arrangement with other rich families than about love (ie Victor and Raquel, Taylor and Malcolm, Shelly and her new man).

Omar “Left Behind”

Out of everyone Omar has had it the worse this season.

He loss Val. He doesn’t get any recognition. He’s never invited to the really nice events, only the club. Got put on blast about wearing fake desinger clothes because he’s broke and Raquel can’t afford to give him a raise. He got engaged only to get dumped. Then his sister, Presley, gets a man and he is disrespected and told to stay out of her and her son’s life by this him.

Where is the love?!

I truly feel bad for him, but he’s handling it like a champ I must admit. I hope he gets some play soon.

Let me know your thoughts on the season so far.

“Single Ladies” Season 2 Episode 2 “I Didn’t Mean to Turn You On”

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!
