What’s love got to do with it?
[Sidebar: Props to Karlie for finally getting her own storyline! ]
Tommie and Scrapp are battling again this week over his constant indiscretions. First it was with his baby mama, Tiearra, now he’s dipping around with Karlie Redd. Tommi blows up after she finds a receipt with Karie’s name on it in Scrapp’s car but he denies it all.
In confessional, Scrapp steals a line from Jody from the movie ‘Baby Boy’ stating:
“Reason I’m not telling the truth is because the truth hurts. My momma taught me to lie to people you care about to protect their feelings.”
It seems that not only is the marriage between Joseline & Stevie J over, but their working relationship is too!
The LHHATL couple is currently on the outs as last week, Stevie J left after finding out that Joseline was back in cahoots with Dawn even after she ‘outed’ them as having a fake marriage.
This week, Dawn returns as Joseline runs to her with the news that she (Joseline) is no longer contractually obligated to Steve J.
Joseline found the contract Stevie has been holding over her head all these season’s and it seems that it has run it’s term and is no longer valid. Now, Dawn can book her with no worries of having to split the costs with Steve and Joseline can do whatever she wants and not have to pay him a dime!
“I’m a free woman like the Statue of Liberty. I’m the puppet master. Not Stevie!”
Yay! Joseline is finally in a position that she no longer has to fear ‘Steebie’ sending her ‘back to the skribbclub’!
Momma Dee married the love of her life last season but it seems the honeymoon is already over and the couple is bickering over just about everything!
Momma Dee has several complaints about her husband, Ernest. She loves him, but he doesn’t fully satisfy her in the bedroom and his pockets aren’t fat enough to provide the ‘royal lifestyle’ she’s accustomed to.
Earnest reveals that Momma Dee is bi-polar AND and alcoholic and that she even drinks while on her medication.
He also confides in Shirleen that they are having problems and Shirleen suggests they go to a therapist.
The couple ends up seeing their pastor for help with their marriage and it seems they are open to working on things.
Joselline meets up with Mimi Faust after hearing news that Stevie J has been paying child support for an 18-month old he secretly had with a stripper.
It’s weird that the two former foes are now actually quite close and even able to share their feelings with one another.
It seems that Joseline is really hurting about Stevie J’s cheating ways, despite her earlier statements to Dawn celebrating her “independence.”
Speaking of Stevie… it seems he’s on to the next one already!
Tommie is out for revenge, so she decides that Stevie J. would be the perfect conquest and gets up close & personal with him to work on her so-called music career.
Of course Stevie is down, since he doesn’t have Joseline under contract any longer, he needs someone to make up for the 30% he’s losing out on.
Unfortunately for Tommy, Scrapp doesn’t really care if his ‘uncle’ hits that or not.
On the flip side, Tommy is still salty about Karlie stealing her man so she decides to confront her. They both spew a slew of insults but security breaks up the heated debate before it escalates.
