Miko Grimes is no stranger to conflict, but there is one in particular that is taking up a lot of her time on this season of Baller Wives. Miko believes that Aja Crowder’s husband, Channing Crowder, got Miko fired from her job at the radio station where they both worked. When the ladies end up taking a trip on the yacht, Aja thinks that it’s the perfect opportunity to clear the air. Miko, however, expects an apology from Channing, and when it becomes clear that Aja does not care, Miko brings their children into it.
She starts in, saying, “My son did not like your son…Aiden has come home two times saying he beat your son up.” Aja doesn’t really believe it, especially considering that her son’s teacher has never said a word about those fights, but Miko then doubles down, explaining why Aiden said he doesn’t care for Channing Jr. “He doesn’t listen to the teacher, he’s in time out every day, he never does his work.”
Aja shuts it down right away, but still asks Channing Jr. if he is friends with Aiden and if he’s been having a good time at school. Channing, playin’ with some blocks and totally unbothered, just says, “Yep.” The Crowders aren’t really worried about their son, but they are worried that Miko is talking badly about them to Aiden.
Miko asks basically the same questions to her son about whether or not he wants to be friends with Channing Jr., and Aiden says, “Yeah. He could. I’m trying and I believe he can.” Miko then asks her 6-year-old son for friendship advice. “I don’t really want to be [Aja’s] friend. I don’t think like her that much. I think that she’s pretending to be somebody she’s not.” Aiden is basically like…Listen mom, I’m 6, I don’t know. But Miko pushes him until he gives this little nugget of wisdom: “Ignore the bad things and listen to the good things.” We’ve got ourselves a regular Ghandi over here.
We totally get that everyone parents differently, but it’s interesting to see how the two families choose to share information with their children. Not gonna lie, Aiden may be smart, but he’s still 6. Maybe Miko should ask someone her own age next time?
