BFVQuote: “I think it’s time for you to start dating, child.” Since Mama E has been in L.A. for a while, Tamar thinks it’s time for Evelyn to find a man. BFVQuote: “Moms need to get their backs cracked too.” Ms. E has been burned in the past when her daughters have set her up, so if she is really going to get back in the dating pool she should to consult a professional. However, Ms. E does not seem too thrilled about meeting strange men. BFVQuote: “They act like they care about you then they kill you and bury you in the backyard.” That’s a bit dramatic.
Back in Atlanta, Trina and Gabe are sitting down for some wine and for Trina to break the news to Gabe that he will not be involved in the boutique. BFVQuote: “I don’t want to ruffle anyone’s feathers, especially the girls.” Gabe thinks Trina is being peer pressured into making this decision to exclude him from the store, and the guy does raise some excellent points. He pretty much did everything so far except come up with the idea himself. Trina just thinks this is what every married couple does when one of them is starting a business. BFVQuotes: “Kudos to you, Gabe for that. Yay!” WE all know sh*t gets dicey when the husbands get involved, so this decision is for the best. WE just feel bad for Gabe. BFVQuote: “It will be very fun to watch.”
Toni is attending a private screening of her new Lifetime movie with the family at a synagogue. Even Denim and Diezel are at the screening, and Diezel is actually in the film. Toni even had some similarities with the character she played in the film. BFVQuote: “This was very alter ego ‘Toni.’” Toni is still alluding the fact that she may no longer want to be in the music industry, but WE have a feeling she will be back in that studio in no time. One thing we are 100% certain of is that Toni’s costar is one good looking male. BFVQuote: “I must say that he is yummy.”
Mama E is going on her first blind date through the agency! The guy brought roses… that has to be a good start! Or not… this conversation is duller than dry toast. BFVQuote: “I mean booorrrinnnggg.” And WE are almost 100% positive he is unemployed. He even asked Ms. E her age! BFVQuote: “Uh ah… you got to go.” At least Evelyn knows how to be a lady about it. That was the most respectful exit WE have ever seen. BFVQuote: “He was tall… but not too bright.”
Leave it to the Braxton sisters to provide us with more hilarity… group yoga! BFVQuote: “Hopefully it will bring some Zen into Tamar’s life so she can chill out just a little bit.” Towanda is running late, and it seems like the instructor has no patience for rule breaking. She doesn’t like extra notes added to the end of the meditation, she doesn’t like Trina worrying about what Traci is doing, or Tamar trying to say yoga is tuckering her out. She especially does not like laughing! BFVQuote: “Her attitude is not increasing my Zen in the least!” This idea was a disaster from the jump. At least the instructor leaves so the girls can go back to the hysterics WE enjoy. At least his conversation has lead to Tamar admitting she had NO idea what pregnancy is like when she used to torment the sisters.
Evelyn is on a hot streak with this dating business; she is already on date #2. This date, Darryl looks a little like Papa Braxton… this may work out! And he can actually hold a conversation AND make Evelyn laugh… she may have hit the lottery. BFVQuote: “Speaking of getting warm, it is getting a little hot in here.” Mama E looks like she is thinking hard about this second date, especially when Darryl says there is nothing wrong with getting to know a person and spend time together.
In true Braxton fashion, the sisters head to Mr. Chows for lunch and to discuss the store. They also must discuss how lichi nuts feel like something specific in your mouth. Even Tamar drops her utensil at the thought of what Trina is implying. BFVQuote: “It reminds me of the sack.” The girls decide to focus on specifics of the store like the name “T Rack.” BFVQuote: “Boo. It’s wack. Nobody’s coming!” The ladies decide to take an oath that all sisters will be 100% involved in the boutique.
Tamar and Mommy are having at home manicures to pamper themselves a bit. However, this pamper time turns into Tamar time real quick! And Mommy has no patience for Tamar’s lack of enthusiasm and hefty complaining. BFVQuote: “Do you think you are exempt from all these things?” Mama E brings Tamar back down to reality, and she makes Tamar realize this is a great thing. BFVQuote: “This is really Team Too Much.”
The sisters and Mommy are getting together to plan Tamar’s shower, and hopefully it will lift Tamar’s spirits a bit. Before they get down to shower business, Ms. Evelyn fills the ladies in on her recent dating history. The girls insist on meeting Darryl after hearing Evelyn’s positive feedback, but BFVQuote: “stay out my business.” The girls return to their original subject of the Tamar shower, and all the sisters are eager to execute the idea of dressing up like a specific “Tamar.” Toni would love to throw Tamar a slumber party, and all the sisters and Mommy agree. That would be something Tamar would LOVE.
On the season finale of #BFV, Tamar grills Toni on her involvement with Babyface in the studio, Evelyn wants some positive attitude for once, and Tamar gets annoyed at her slumber shower when Toni mentions she will be going back to Atlanta and not around to help with the baby.
