With Tina breaking the pregnancy news to all the VIPs in her life, the fate of Mary Mary and their demanding schedule hang in the balance. Goo introduces Justin to Erica and Tina, and Warryn takes Erica on a baby-moon.
Tina and Erica get home from the sisters weekend and break the news to the family. The news is not met with all cheers and joyfulness. MMQuote: “There can be some pretty serious consequences from her being pregnant and her being gone from her fans so long.” At this point, Honey seems to be the only one truly excited about the news. MMQuote: “I was so tickled when she told me.”
Tina is apprehensive to tell Teddy about the pregnancy, as she feels it will make her feel worse about the pregnancy. MMQuote: “My biggest fear about telling Teddy was he would feel what I felt.” The news takes Teddy by surprise. MMQuote: “I’m shocked. I wasn’t ready for that. We’re gonna have 5 kids… and that’s just a lot.” Talking about the overwhelming tasks that come with parenting, Teddy makes Tina realize that God would not keep giving them children without the help they will need to be great parents. With Teddy refusing to think about the magnitude of the pregnancy, Tina seems to be the only one overly concerned. MMQuote: I’m pregnant and I’m emotional. Just let me have my moment.”
Goo’s boyfriend Justin is coming in from Atlanta, and they will go on a triple date with Erica and Tina. Wanting to always look fresh, Goo goes shopping with Alana to find the perfect outfit. Alana and Goo both know Justin will be peppered with a slew of questions from all four family members. MMQuote: “Erica and Tina are going to come at him hard and he may think he’s doomed. But he’s not.” Goo is a little concerned though, especially with what Teddy and Warryn will say. However, Goo thinks this will definitely show what type of man Justin is. If he breaks a sweat, she may not want to be with someone like that.
While discussing the pregnancy and how it relates to the sisters’ careers, Honey sheds some light on the main issues. MMQuote: “These pregnancies are bumping heads and its causing all types of confusion right now.” Tina doesn’t believe that not committing to every opportunity is going to affect their career, but Erica sees it differently. MMQuote: “It hasn’t been 11 years so we can do what we can. We’ll do the most, and we’ll push the most, and we’ll drive the most.” Erica just wants Tina to recognize that this will affect the planning of their tour and other appearances.
With Justin getting ready to come to LA, Goo asks if Justin is prepared for his visit. Being a little confused with what Goo means, she describes her family like a pack of guard dogs. MMQuote: “My family ain’t no easy win. I know you got it, but I just want to prepare you.” If Justin wasn’t nervous enough, he will definitely be pushed over the edge after this conversation. Goo feels like Justin could be the man she spends the rest of her life with, so it is extra important Tina and Erica get to know him the way she has, and be quiet!
With Erica being pregnant with her third child, Warryn wants to take time to relax and focus just on Erica. He’s a self proclaimed Mr. Romance, and will get something together to “wow” Erica.
Even though Tina is having some sisterly time at Erica’s house, work and Mitch always seems to work themselves into the schedule. MMQuote: “If business comes up, and he knows we’re together, he’s gonna call.” Treiva seems to be cracking the whip along with Mitch and insists the sister have this call. MMQuote: “My worst fear has come to life. They offered us a performance spot today!” It is amazing for the sisters to get this type of request, and they are ELATED! However, the Grammy’s are happening on Erica’s due date, so there are some serious concerns. Tina and Erica need to get back to Mitch with whether or not they think Mary Mary will be able to perform.
Warryn goes to Jason of Beverly Hills to get Erica a gift for having their third child. Hopefully Warryn can hold it together and pick a great gift while being distracted by shiny objects. Warryn finally finds the perfect push gift, and knows Erica will be 100% surprised.
MMQuote: “So we’re getting ready to go out to dinner and meet Justin, aka ‘GooGoo’s boo’. And we’re gonna see if this dude is good enough to be with GooGoo.” Warryn agrees with Teddy’s sentiment, and wants to make sure this person is right for Goo. As the couple shows up to dinner, we are afraid to watch the buzzards circle. MMQuote: “You got to suss him out. See what he’s like…. Do you have some shift eyes? Do you know how to shake somebody’s hand? Are you scary?” With Teddy being concerned about Justin’s “untrustworthy perfect eyebrows”, we are not sure how this is going to play out. As the sisters and brother-in-laws play 21 questions, Tina asks the most important question in our opinions, MMQuote: “Were you a hoe?” Oh, this is getting GOOD! But, we want to congratulate Justin on a job well done with this interrogation. However, you may have wanted to not mention the part about uprooting Goo from her family, and moving her to Atlanta. This has gone from good to bad in about 5 minutes, but at least the subject was changed to Steve Urkel glasses and men of God. You may have redeemed yourself, Justin! MMQuote: “You did good, GooGoo! You did good!” MMQuote: “Let’s toast this man. He’s a good man.”
Erica decides that she needs to explore options of how to naturally induce labor… like castor oil. Yuck! With the discussions of primrose, cervix massaging, and the imitation of horses, WE just feel all sorts of uncomfortable.
The sisters have another business meeting with Mitchell, and Tina is FINALLY ready to tell Mitchell she is pregnant. MMQuote: “If he responds the wrong way, there is gonna be problems with this professional relationship.” Mitch looks like he saw a ghost when Tina finally breaks the news to him. MMQuote: “I am freaking miserable right now. My husband and I weren’t planning on having another baby.” Mitch is a bit overwhelmed and cannot believe what he is hearing. With touring not being the only part of Mary Mary’s plan, there is hope that they can still get through it. As a silver lining, Erica has decided to commit to perform at the Grammy’s as she will induce her labor in a healthy manner.
Warryn takes Erica aboard a yacht for her baby-moon, and it looks like this is going to be a romantic time for the couple. MMQuote: “Warryn is the best. This man does it right.” But with the seas looking a bit rough, this romantic baby-moon may get a bit rocky. Warryn cracks up when poor Erica practically does a backwards summersault off of her chair and onto the boat deck. MMQuote: “I know I have something special that will eventually turn this night around for the better.” To mark the many years Erica and Warryn have been together, Warryn presents Erica with a gorgeous “will you stay with me?” ring. We think it is so sweet when Erica serenades Warryn. It is obvious how much love this couple has between them. The conversation quickly turns to work, and the subject of Tina’s pregnancy. MMQuote: “She has serious trust issues.” The main concern is the fear of saying no to more and more events, and this will affect the future of Mary Mary. When Erica brings up the idea of inducing, Warryn is not a fan of the idea because of the health risks for Erica and the baby. MMQuote: “As the father of that child and her husband, I am definitely putting both feet down.” Erica feels the ultimate decision is hers since it is her body.
At Tina and Teddy’s house, the couple sits all the kids down to announce they are having a baby. All four kids are super excited. MMQuote: “If it’s a boy, I want to call it noodle.”
Will Tina not be able to deal with the additional stress of another child? Will all this baby mama drama lead to the breakup of Mary Mary? Let us know what you think!
