We last left off Little Women: Atlanta with Minnie yelling at her former, BFF Monie, because she doesn’t appreciate the Law and Order interrogation tactics about her
fake pregnancy, fake miscarriage, fake life, etc. Ms. Juicy pipes up that they all care about her (she says this with a straight face). Monie asks Minnie why can’t she just be honest. Minnie responds, “Whatever!” Really gurl? Then she picks up a plate with maybe two or three cupcakes on it and a bunch of wrappers and tosses them on the floor for her dramatic exit. Ms. Juicy says “you better watch it or you might get one of them thrown at cha!” (famous last words…don’t forget them). Minnie replies, “I wish you would b*tch” while leaving. Minnie is crying in the parking lot. Amanda goes out to comfort her. Minnie says, through tears, that Ms. Juicy just threw that baby shower to make her look bad. Awww Ya think?
Next, we have Lontel visiting Emily at the hospital. They discuss the prognosis of baby J.J. He is still in an incubator on a ventilator. Emily hasn’t seen him in person yet due to her C-Section and can only video face/time with him. It’s really sad. Lontel brings Emily’s sister, Sara, to give her support because he has to go to work. Yes, Lontel has a job (apparently in Texas). The doctor explains that baby J.J. is having trouble breathing on his own and he has had some seizures. #Prayers4BabyJJForReal.
Because lying is very stressful to Minnie, she, her momma and the twins go to a spa to get facials. The twins explain they never had facials before with cucumbers and charcoal. The only thing they know about cucumbers and charcoal is that you usually eat cucumbers and you cook fajitas with charcoal. Yup, their words, not mine. #Seriously. After the facials, Minnie rehashes Operation “Ambush Baby Shower,” to her momma, with tears, natch. Momma Tammy is furious. She even ask “Et Tu Monie?” (I added the Shakespeare quote). Tammy asked did Monie join in on the questioning also? Minnie says yes, but she makes it seems like Juicy was the head interrogator. We all saw the footage. This gurl. Ms. Tammy gets angry, and says “you don’t mess with my child. She used to get bullied in school due to her size! Spread the word that I will drag a b*tch about my child!” I believe she doesn’t play. Her lashes are still on after that facial. Even the twins are without eyebrows. She probably threatened the facialists. Watch cha back, Juicy.
Andrea, Amanda and their boyfriends are engaging in a friendly game of foosball. Amanda said her little arms are getting tired so they need to stop. She really said that. They Face Time their mom. It is a cute scene. Andrea gets to speak with her son, Andre, who is staying behind with her parents due to his lung condition and because his doctors are in Texas. Her mom is worried about this pregnancy as well. Andrea explains that she has difficulty breathing. Amanda is worried for her sister because their mom is so far away.
Ms. Juicy is cooking dinner for her BFF Dominique. Dominique comes in with a hairstyle that is business in the back and a party up front. Warning: nasty talk ahead. Ms. Juicy tells Dominique she is feeling horny. We find out that Ms. Juicy was married before to an average size man (5’7”) for 15-years. She is now divorced and wants to “spread the Juice.” She says she has multiple friends with benefits. Yeah, marinate on that! Ms. Juicy is not a playa, she just crush a lot. They talk about the Ambush Baby shower. Ms. Juicy says that ungrateful b*tch stormed out and had the nerve to be offended. How rude. She says later Minnie called her and asked to meet up. Dominique asks do you think she really had a miscarriage? Ms. Juicy says “that heifa wasn’t pregnant!” Sips drink.
Bri is still in Texas visiting Emily. Bri has a lot of empathy for her friend because her baby, Malik, went through the same thing. Lontell arrives with his mother, Rachel and Emily’s cute daughter, Eva, who is super anxious to meet her new little brother. She is told because she’s only 3, she isn’t allowed to go to the incubator but she can Face Time with him. It is a really cute scene. My heart goes out to Emily.
Monie is feeling regretful about her argument with Minnie and invites her over to talk. Minnie arrives and they sit at the table. Minnie says she appreciated the baby shower but she didn’t appreciate all the questions. She asks Monie why doesn’t she believe her? Monie says”Ima keep it 100!” She then asks Minnie one more time how far along was she pregnant before she miscarried. Minnie says 3-months. She asks did she have to have a D&C performed. Minnie says no, they just sent her home from the hospital the same day. This is the last straw for Monie. Monie explains that she, too miscarried and it was a gruesome horrible experience. She had to have a D & C and stayed in the hospital for a week. She isn’t buying Minnie’s story. She calls bullchit. She tells Minnie they have nothing else to talk about. She shows her the door and while closing it says “that heifa knows she’s lyin!” I hope Minnie really isn’t lying. You should never lie about a miscarriage.
Andrea is at her OB/GYN getting a checkup. The doctor is shocked to see her double mint twin. He says he cannot tell them apart. I feel ya doc. He tells her he wants to refer her to an internist due to her breathing problems. Her sister whips out her phone with her own questions for the doctor. They have cute banter and then, after the appointment, Amanda tells Andrea her toes are looking raggedy and she needs to paint them. They laugh about it. I love these two.
Emily is being discharged from the hospital. Bri picks her up and they go out for brunch. Emily is tired and worried about baby J.J. She says he will not be allowed to come home before 4-weeks. Bri has to return to Atlanta for work but she is praying for the baby. #MeToo
Andrea is taking Amanda’s advice and tries to paint her own toes at home. In walks Chris from his “job interview.” This is why he couldn’t’ accompany her to the doctor visit. He tells Andrea “dude (the interviewer) looked like he liked what I had to say so I hope he calls back!” Ok. Chris asks if the doctor told her if the baby will be average size or a little person. Andrea ignores that question but expresses her concerns about Chris leaving her when this baby is born because he wasn’t there for their first baby Andre. Chris tells her to stop living in the past and being all negative. They are a team and he ain’t gong nowhere. She asks him the prove it by painting her toes.
Monie and Bri meet up for lunch to catch up on Emily’s condition, baby J.J., and all things Minnie. Bri cannot believe Minnie would actually lie about being pregnant and having a miscarriage. Monie points out she lied about Pastor Troy and a bunch of other things so why not. She also says being friends with a liar is difficult. Monie says Minnie’s lies are hurting the group.
Finally – Wing Tossing. Ms. Juicy is meeting Minnie at a hookah bar. She sits down and orders wings and some Moscato. Her wings arrive and while Ms. Juicy is getting her munch on, in walks Minnie AND her momma Tammy. Oh my. Juicy takes a drink of her Moscato. Now that Minnie has her body-guard, she isn’t running anymore. She tells Ms. Juicy, “that was some shady shit,” she pulled at the Baby shower. She also says, Ms. Juicy doesn’t know what the phuck she’s been through with this miscarriage and all. Minnie says, she didn’t appreciate her all her questions. Ms. Juicy says she wasn’t the only one “qwerstening” (I couldn’t help it, that’s how she pronounced it) but they were ALL concerned about Minnie.
Ms. Tammy’s eyelashes are fluttering faster than a humming bird’s wings and she says oooh chile. Then she lays into Ms. Juicy verbally with “ who do you think you are! You say Ashley want to be you!” Wait what? Is that Minnie’s real name? I digress. Ms. Tammy continues “You ain’t nobody! Look at you and look at Minnie/Ashley. You are dressing up like an elf going to Christmas parties (seems like somebody is salty because Minnie/Ashley wasn’t invited as a walk on with the Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Christmas party last season hmmmm), and now you looking like Raggedy Ann! I’m from Chattanooga and I will whoop yo azz! I don’t discriminate!”
Throughout all this screaming, with Ms. Tammy and Minnie/Ashley both standing over her, Ms. Juicy is unbothered. #Boss! Cool as a cucumber. This makes Ms. Tammy angrier. She screams “question her again!” Ms. Juicy responds that she will ask Minnie/Ashley anything she wants — and then chicken wings fly into Ms. Juicy’s face! I wonder if they were still hot? Customers remove their glasses, sips drinks and are probably wishing they had popcorn for this show they’re watching. Ms. Juicy, still seated, says “oh y’all grown now, for real— you are crazy.” Ms. Tammy says she is good and grown 365 days a year 24/7.
They march out all big and proud and are laughing about the scene in the parking lot. Minnie/Ashley is grinning like a 4-year-old child who just witnessed their mom jump a bully in the school yard. Ms. Juicy says in a Talking Head interview, “boo boo you bring yo momma to fight for you! You messed with the Queen of Atlanta. This shit ain’t ovah!”
Do y’all think Minnie lied about the pregnancy/miscarriage? Would you let your momma fight your battles? Did Ms. Tammy take her blood pressure medication?
Next week: Ms. Tammy is served with a restraining order from Ms. Juicy. Minnie/Ashley finally tells Pastor Troy they lost the baby. We get to meet the new girl and Ms. Juicy’s new hairdo. Later Gators!
