Everybody knows that Rasheeda and Kirk Frost have an airtight relationship and this week, they finally get to portray who they REALLY are… a team!
Kirk surprises an ecstatic Rasheeda with a lavish office space for her new store and gives her free reign on the budget for the grand opening event.

Kalenna admitted last week that she could be suffering from postpartum depression and this week, she and her husband Tony meet with a therapist.
Apparently Kalenna has been officially diagnosed and the therapist reassures her that it’s merely the hormones produced by pregnancy that have her feelings askew. What Kaleena is experiencing is completely normal and very common in many women.
Kalenna expresses the frustrations she has about having to choose between her music career and being a good mother. While she has goals and dreams of making music and giving her son the best in life, she also fears her sons becoming victims of gun violence or police brutality if she doesn’t provide them with a certain lifestyle than what is considered “average.”
Tony seems to finally realize how much Kalenna needs his support and admits that he feels bad about not having her back prior to the diagnosis.
Scrappy’s sister Jasmine calls him for an urgent family meeting and when the two get together Jasmine reveals Momma Dee’s wedding plans. Scrappy is a bit shocked to hear that Ernest is moving so fast but he admits he wants his mom to be happy.
Jasmine also reveals that Momma Dee asked both Bambi and Erica to be bridesmaids in her wedding. Jasmine doesn’t really want this wedding to go forward and she asks Scrappy to try talking some sense into their mom.
Meanwhile, Scrappy talks to Bambi about the wedding plans and asks why she didn’t tell him that both she and Erica were bridesmaids. Bambi admits that she’s learned not to discuss Erica with Scrappy when they are feuding over custody issues because it causes trouble in their relationship.
In walks Momma Dee during their conversation and Scrappy admits that he feels the same as Jasmine (in that they are moving way too fast with wedding plans).
Momma Dee isn’t here for all that and she just wants her son to walk her down the aisle but Scrappy is feeling some kinda way about his baby mama being involved, so he maintains that he will not be in attendance if Erica has anything to do with the wedding.
Momma Dee visits Erica to ask her to step down from being a bridesmaid because of Scrappy’s opposition to her participating in the wedding. When she also tells Erica that Scrappy has gone as far as to say that he won’t even attend the wedding if Erica is in it, Erica agrees to back out out of respect for Momma Dee.
Erica asks Momma Dee if she would still go forward with the wedding if neither of her children showed up for the ceremony and she admits that she’s not sure if she’d be able to go through with it without their support.
Joseline Hernandez meets with a group of promoters who want her to perform at an LGBT charity event benefiting an organization that provides resources for crisis and suicide prevention.
During the meeting, Joseline discusses her own difficult childhood growing up in Puetro Rico, revealing that her family was not accepting of her
wanting a sex change being openly bisexual. Jose begins to tear up as he admits that he’s had her own struggles relating to sexuality, and acknowledges that there are many people in the LGBT community who would benefit from hearing his/her story of being able to overcome it all and live his dreams of becoming a performer.
Meanwhile back at the ranch, Stevie J. confronts JoJo about using his connects to further her career without him. Joseline clearly feels some kinda way about Stevie J. working with other artists and now she wants to be able to handle her own business. Stevie continues to drill her about going behind his back to record music with people that he knows but Joseline says she’s disappointed that she had to resort to working with other producers in the first place!
Joseline invites Stevie to come see her perform at the LGBT charity event and he appears to be considering it.
Jessica Dime enlists Margeaux in her plan to strike back against Mimi Faust for betraying her.
Jessica tells Margeaux that she’s done giving Mimi second chances, especially after hearing that Mimi got Tiffany Fox in the studio with Stevie J but couldn’t do the same for her.
To retaliate… Jessica plans to bring Margeaux out as a surprise guest during an upcoming performance that Mimi has arranged for her.
Poor Mimi is so excited about Dime’s performance and raves about how tonight is a big night for both MF Management and Jessica Dime but her mood completely changes when Dime brings out Mimi’s ex-boyfriend’s wife to perform with her as a surprise guest. *sigh*
