Season 1, Episode 8
Stephanie confronts Candace one on one. Tonia considers reconciling with her ex-husband but isn’t sure how he’ll respond. Stephanie and Jerald sign a new lease, but the chaos of moving takes their marriage from bad to worse.
Stephanie and Jerald’s marriage is still in crisis, but they’re too far into their move to back out now. They meet with the landlord to sign a lease and Stephanie makes a point to put the lease in her name.
Stephanie takes time out for herself to meet up with Casey and Suz to shop for new bras to go with her new boobs. Casey and Suz fill Stephanie in on where they stand with Candace and Tonia after the wine tour debacle, and Stephanie announces she’s asked Candace to meet up for lunch to talk things out.
At lunch, Stephanie decides its time to lay everything on the line with Candace. She rattles everything she despises about Candace, from her holier than thou attitude to her fake friendship with Tonia. A dumbfounded Candace sits there and takes the beating, much to Stephanie’s surprise.
Tonia’s planning for an emotional week as she puts the final touches on her twins’ 5th birthday party. Tonia is also anxious about seeing her ex-husband, Rob. She has recently realized that she wants to try to work things out with Rob, but she’s not sure if he’s interested.
Moving day arrives for the Williams’ family and Stephanie is late and disorganized as usual. She blames Jerald for going out of town for work yet again, and leaving her to do all the packing herself. The chaos of moving does nothing to warm their relationship and by the end of the day, they can barely be civil to each other.
Tonia’s twins’ party is a princess extravaganza and while all the moms are impressed, they’re even more curious to see how Tonia and her ex-husband interact. When Rob arrives the atmosphere is awkward at first, but soon they are getting along well. Candace and Steve both get emotional seeing Tonia and Rob together and they confess that they hope they will get back together.
Later in the week, Candace and Tonia get together to catch up on everything that’s happened. Tonia confesses that Rob hasn’t responded to her efforts to reconcile. She’s hurt by the rejection, but at the same time she’s happy to finally have some closure.
Stephanie calls Suz and Casey with shocking news. Jerald has moved out, and their marriage is officially over. The girls rush over to console Stephanie and find out what happened. She admits that she knew it was coming for a long time, but she’s heartbroken all the same. All she can do now is focus on the future, being strong for her kids and find a way to move on.
