>> BRANDI AND I ARE GONNA MEET

FOR DRINKS TODAY AND TALK ABOUT

OUR FRIENDSHIP.

I'M STILL NOT OVER HER SAYING

WE'RE NOT FRIENDS, BUT I'M

WILLING TO LISTEN.

>> DRAYA, LIKE, WE HAVE SPENT A

LOT OF TIME WITH EACH OTHER AND

I--PERSONALLY, I LIKE YOU.

I HEARD WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT THE

SITUATION, HOW YOU FELT THAT YOU

WERE CALLING ME YOUR FRIEND AND

ALL THIS OTHER STUFF, AND I

DON'T USE THAT WORD LOOSELY.

I DO SEE US BEING FRIENDS, YOU

KNOW, AS TIME PROGRESS AND GO

ON.

>> THIS SITUATION HAS BEEN,

LIKE, WEIGHING ON ME BECAUSE I

JUST FEEL LIKE I GAVE SO MUCH

AND THE ANGRY SIDE OF ME WANTS

TO, LIKE, TAKE IT ALL BACK AND

SAY, "OH, WE'RE NOT FRIENDS?

FINE.

TAKE BACK ALL THOSE MEMORIES

THAT YOU HAD WITH ME, BECAUSE

THAT WAS REALLY ME BEING ME."

>> I THINK SHE'S MORE HURT

BECAUSE SHE FELT THAT I WAS HER

FRIEND, SO I HOPE THAT IT

DOESN'T COME IN BETWEEN US

GETTIN' TO KNOW ONE ANOTHER.

WHEN YOU USE THE WORD FRIENDSHIP

OR RELATIONSHIP, IT'S KIND OF

LIKE YOU GOT TO GET TO KNOW A

LITTLE BIT MORE, AND I JUST FELT

LIKE EVERYTHING THAT WE HAVE

DONE TOGETHER, I WAS GETTING TO

KNOW YOU.

>> IT WAS JUST SHOCKING FOR ME

TO HEAR, ESPECIALLY FROM JACKIE

AND SUNDY.

I THOUGHT THAT WE WAS IN

SOMETHIN' AND I THOUGHT THAT WE

WERE STARTING SOMETHING...

>> YEAH.

>> BUT I DON'T LIKE THAT YOU

TOLD IT TO THEM.

>> YEAH.

>> I JUST DON'T FEEL LIKE IF I'M

FIGHTING AND ARGUING WITH

SOMEBODY OR TWO PEOPLE AT THE

SAME TIME, LET ALONE, YOU DON'T

GO SIT WITH THEM AND TELL THEM

ABOUT OUR RELATIONSHIP.

AND I JUST FEEL LIKE BRANDI WAS

REALLY WRONG FOR THAT.

YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK?

I THINK THAT THE GROUP HAS A

REALLY MESSED UP PERCEPTION OF

YOU...

>> YEAH.

>> AND THEY WANT YOU TO BE, YOU

KNOW, STUCK UP AND BOUGIE AND

THAT YOU THINK YOU'RE BETTER

THAN EVERYBODY.

THEY WANT YOU TO BE THAT SO BAD

THAT--

>> THEY'RE GONNA TRY TO KEEP

THAT ON ME.

>> THEY'RE ENFORCING IT INTO

OTHER PEOPLE'S MINDS, SO WITH

THAT BEING SAID, IT'S PROBABLY

BETTER THAT YOU DON'T THROW THE

FRIEND WORD OUT THERE, BECAUSE

THIS IS A ROUGH GROUP THAT WE'RE

IN AND IT'S HARD--IT'S REALLY

HARD TO TELL WHO'S A FRIEND AND

WHO'S NOT.

>> THE THING I DON'T LIKE ABOUT

THIS GROUP WITH ME IS THAT,

LIKE, I SAY A WHOLE PARAGRAPH

FULL OF [bleep] BUT THEY'LL SAY,

LIKE, THAT ONE WORD, AND THEY'LL

BE LIKE, "SEE? THERE IT IS."

>> YEAH. THEY DO IT.

>> YOU KNOW?

>> THEY DO IT TO ME WHEN I SAY

"BITCH."

IT'S LIKE I CAN SAY, "THESE

BITCHES AND THIS AND THAT," AND

THEY'RE LIKE, "OH, WHO YOU

CALLIN' A BITCH?"

AND I'M LIKE, "THAT'S NOT EVEN

WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.

JUST STOP FISHING FOR REASONS."

>> YEAH.

>> BUT YOU HAVE TO KNOW THAT THE

STUFF THAT COMES OUT OF YOUR

MOUTH YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE

FOR, SO YOU HAVE TO STOP GIVING

THEM THINGS TO FISH OUT OF YOU.

>> YEAH.

>> JUST DON'T EVEN--DON'T SAY

IT.

I JUST LIKE--BECAUSE THEY DON'T

UNDERSTAND YOU, THEY DON'T HAVE

TO UNDERSTAND YOU, BUT YOU DON'T

HAVE TO--

>> BUT THAT'S JUST TELLIN' ME

THAT I CAN'T BE MYSELF.

>> I THINK THAT BRANDI DOESN'T

WANT TO BE JUDGED, BUT

ULTIMATELY, SHE IS, AND THE

THINGS THAT SHE SAYS OUT OF HER

MOUTH STAMP IT.

BUT ME AND YOU, WE'RE ALL GOOD.
