The lesson of the night: Stevie J owns you once you’re with him. And leaving quietly is not an option because “You know I can find you, right?”
Stevie J ended up right in Joseline’s bed after Mimi went Mike Tyson on his cheek. Joseline may have allowed him back in, but she’s over the drama with Mimi. “I don’t need this bad energy on me with your baby mama,” she told him. Stevie J isn’t entertaining any conversation of Joseline leaving him, but Miss Hernandez has her mind made up, at least for the moment. “The relationship, we gon’ have to let this go. I want to just get to work,” she said. “And we still in this same f—– bed talking about the same f—- s—,”she said. “If you want to run around and do it by yourself you’re gonna have a small career,” he threatens. “You don’t handle s— but your mouth and your beefcake,” she said. But in case Joseline forgot who runs the show: “I want you to run around, but remember, everything comes back to the gatekeeper.” Joseline is trying to get this bread with or without Stevie.
Erica and Scrappy have a conversation about their moms getting with the program. Scrappy admits to having to check Momma Dee for not being on board with the engagement. Erica’s no fool and highly doubts Momma Dee has gotten anything through her “thick skull” so she chooses to focus on her own mom’s doubts. Scrappy has to have a one-on-one conversation with Erica’s mom.
DJ Traci Steele is one of the hottest DJs in Atlanta. She has a six-year-old son with DJ Babey Drew who DJs for Chris Brown. His constant touring schedule keeps him away from his son for a long time, which Traci has a major problem with. It doesn’t help that he has groupies galore and has created a term for them: THAHA = “These Hos Are Hos Always.” Sounds about right that he’s Chris Brown’s DJ. Traci has a problem with the rotation of various women Drew has around their son. “These b*tches are microwavable b*tches,” she said. “You pop them and keep it moving.” Traci is reading him, honey about the type of women he likes. “I don’t date groupies,” he defends himself. “The last chick was a nice school teacher,” he said. Traci didn’t want to hear a thing about nobody’s school teacher because she stormed out forgetting her THAHA shirt.
Mimi doesn’t know what to do after her fight with Stevie, but she’s going to kickbox her way through it with her girl. K.Michelle says, “Joseline looks like she sleeps on beds without sheets. Don’t have that kind of person around your child.” Mimi is holding on strong to the idea that she moved in to Stevie’s house to keep Joseline away from her daughter. K.Michelle knows that sounds absurd. “No more, no more,” K.Michelle tells her. “There’s no reason to go back no more.” Mimi claims she’s done for the 110th time. “It’s like when your pot has bubbled over and there’s nothing left to spill out,” Mimi said. K has a solution for her to forget all about Stevie. “We go out next time we finna stand on tables, we finna scream, we finna get money. F— n—-.” A booty bump seals the deal.
Joseline booking agent Dawn reminds her she made over $100,000 in less than three months just from hosting and appearances. But Dawn encourages her to drop a single to double her money. Joseline blames Stevie for her single not dropping. “It’s like, they’re gonna get tired of me keep coming hosting a club and I’m not performing.” Stevie J had Joseline sign a contract, which means there’s a possibility she could not make a dime off of said single. “The only thing Stevie’s trying to give me is some beefcake, and a few dollars, and keep me like right here ’Come on little puppy.'” Dawn keeps it real with Joseline calling Stevie J a hater. Will an attorney be in their near future?
Momma Dee pulls up in her Cadillac to pick up Shay so they can plot on getting Shay back in Scrappy’s life. “Who wearing the pants over there?” Shay asks. Momma Dee and Shay are fixated on the idea that the only reason Scrappy doesn’t communicate with Shay is because Erica is forbidding it. Momma Dee takes it as far as saying Scrappy probably still has feelings for her. “The Queen need to take charge over this,” Momma Dee said. “If you listen to me, you’ll get him back.” Nothing good is going to come of this.
Traci realizes she went ham on Drew, but hey, he’s always on the road so she had some pinned up feelings. He’s working on being around more. He wants to be around more but his line of business requires he travel around the world. Traci is not letting him off that easy. She feels he can make money right in Atlanta. Since she wants him around more he proposes her investing in his sneaker boutique. Asking your baby mama for 25 grand is how they’re doing it in the A. “Let me see a change in you first,” she asks. “When I co-signed the truck you had groupie b*tches driving the s—,” she yelled. “I’mma invest in the store and you gon’ have groupie b*tches working in it.” All she wants is for groupie b*tches to not benefit from what she’s going to invest in.
Scrappy went to see Erica’s mom who had questions. “Why now?” she asks Scrappy about wanting to marry Erica now. “How you know you’re not gonna cheat no more Scrap?” “’Cause I know,” he says with a laugh. You can’t blame mom dukes for looking out for her daughter. Scrappy says no woman in any country compares to Erica. “You’re human, you make mistakes, who am I to judge you?” her mom says. Scrappy reminded her she has a past as well, but was able to change, so he can do the same.
Joseline has one goal in mind: getting her contract from Stevie J. “I’m not giving it to you, you should have it,” Stevie said. True enough since Joseline signed it she should always have a copy of what she signed. But what’s the big deal for Stevie to just give her a copy? “Don’t ask me about the contract no f—- more,” he said. “What do you put on the table though?” she asks. “Other than stressing me out and driving me crazy.” Stevie reminds Joseline for the 7,234 time he owns her. “You can’t tell nobody you own them. This is not slavery days,” she reminds him. “Lately you haven’t been giving me my 30 percent,” he tells her. Joseline is not giving him a dime until she gets the contract.
Momma Dee can find her son in a million man march so she’ll definitely go to the studio to find her son. “If you think I’m judging Erica prematurely,” I apologize she said. Momma Dee finally gets down to the real problem. Erica doesn’t call her mama and isn’t trying to kiss her butt. “All I can do as a mother is warn you. Now if you don’t take that warning that’s on you.” What warning? “Once bitten, twice shot, keep one eye open for the bad guy,” she said. Scrappy still wants her to answer this,”What’s the warning?” The analogy didn’t do it for him. Following Momma Dee’s suggestion Shay pops up at the studio for a heart to heart. Scrappy does not look happy to see her. Shay’s still crying a river about being hurt. Scrappy apologizes for handling her in that way. “I had no intentions on s— on someone who got me through my pain,” he said. Shay puts on the waterworks and tells him she hopes he’s happy. And Scrappy looks like he has a headache.
Why Stevie J looks to Benzino for advice we’ll never know. But you have to respect Benzino’s honesty. “Mimi and Joseline love you so of course they want you apart of their life,” Benzino says. “You can’t have your cake and eat it too Sleaze. Them days are over with.” Benzino seems a little hurt that Stevie hasn’t been around much since Joseline came into the picture. Is that a little bromance jealousy going on? According to Benzino, Stevie’s problem is he wants to run from it all. When he asks to crash their for the night Benzino ain’t having it. “No, no, no. You need to go back to Mimi and work that s— out. She’s at your house,” Benzino said. “Ay yo Sleaze. you got to do better.” Benzino’s own love life may have been a mess, but he has some sound advice for his boy.
Stevie J comes back to his house bearing gifts for Mimi. “What more do you want from me?” he asks. Mimi broke the news that she’s moving. “She loves me, she loves me not,” he says plucking rose petals on the floor. The dramatics! “You already got your spot?” he asked. “I don’t need your approval for me to move on,” Mimi said. “Oh, yes you do.” Stevie is sounding real crazy. “You know I can find you right?” he said. As Mimi is moving her belongings to the car Stevie wilds out when a producer or security guard (we’re not really sure which) won’t allow him to follow her. If Stevie wanted to ring the alarm for folks to think he may be crazy, he achieved his goal.
