Show Full Recap
Tamar and Towanda continue to battle it out over who said what on Instagram and Twitter, and what wasn’t said via text. (Guess talking isn’t an option?) The two argue over who is dubbed “the meaner sister,” with Tamar semi-sincerely apologizing, which is greeted with silence from Towanda. Trina, Traci and Towanda later work off stress from the argument during a hike through the Hollywood hills, where they discuss the closeness (or lack thereof) of their sisterhood.
The next day, Traci and Towanda gather at Toni’s house for tea before she shoots the “Hurt You” music video with Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds.

Later, at the shoot, Toni walks viewers through the concept of the emotional “Hurt You” music video (directed by Ray Kay), and she painfully breaks a nail while trying to demolish a “paper-thin” wall for the video. Injuries aside, the clip is a success.
