Evelyn reveals how nervous about her interviews and she gets a pep talk from her mom before her big interview. A mother always gives the best advice, her mom wishes her luck and tells her to be herself and stand tall.

Evelyn arrives at her mom’s house to visit her. There’s no better place to be than your mother’s house during dark times.

Tami reveals how more calmer she is this time around and Shaunie tells Tami how she feels after all the drama that occurred last season she is tired of being the quiet one and has no problem this time around speaking her mind and telling it like it is. Looks like Shaunie has a new attitude.

Tami opens up to Shaunie about her mother’s health condition. Tami reveals to Shaunie that he mother has cancer and Tami is afraid of losing her and being alone. I have to say I got very emotional seeing this side of Tami, there’s nothing more heartbreaking than seeing a loved one sick and dying. Tami gets support from Shaunie as she consoles her

Evelyn visits her daughter Shaniece and she gives her honest opinion of Chad. Her daughter tells her that no one liked Chad especially her. Shaniece reveals to Evelyn she only accepted Chad to make her happy.

Evelyn tells her friends how confused regarding her situation with Chad. Evelyn gets some harsh advice from her friends about Chad. Tami feels like everyone deserves a second chance, not two or three or seven but two only. Shaunie disagrees with Tami and turns the question to her by asking her if she would give this advice to her own daughters. Tami says yes, recent example Chris Brown and Rhianna however she says only second chances. Suzie is the only one who feels like Chad doesn’t deserve Evelyn and thinks she deserves better.

This new season is filled with drama and I can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
