Kandi keeps having her problems crop up with her mother. Although the older woman agrees to try and see the good in Todd she knew she left offseeing the good in Carmen. Carmen is Kandi’s friend that Mama Joyce believes is sneaking around with Todd behind Kandi’s back. Joyce used to like Carmen but after Carmen was hired (she was a friend first) by Kandi; the mother said the friend was using Kandi. Kandi feels like her mom doesn’t want her to get close to anyone besides her and she has these people Joyce doesn’t like whispering in her to ear to take a stand. She has to lay down the law with her mom.

Nene and Greg went to visit an old friend of Nene’s from way back in high school. The man is happily married and enjoying his retirement when Nene begins to ask uncomfortable questions. She figured she should ask if he messed around with Kandi. In the past he admitted to dating her but in front of his wife Kandi got downgraded to one-hit wonder. Nene continues with her questions by then asking him if her hooked up with Phaedra. Phaedra went to high school with them as well. Back then she had a reputation. She was called the “Head doctor”. The friend claimed he never had anything to do with Phaedra former technique.

Phaedra is now licensed to embalm in Alabama. This means she doesn’t have to run back and forth. She can take the time to relax if it were not for Apollo. They haven’t been on good speaking term recently. Just as there argument was stretching out, Apollo came to senses and talked to his wife. Not telling her to drop it but instead apologize for the texting situation.

Later on, Kandi organized a dance work out for all the girls. The only person unable to make it was Porsha. She was only recently released from fainting and injuring herself. Otherwise everyone else remains in a good mood. Nene sees this and believes it’s the best time to announce her plans. She wants to stage another bus trip with both Phaedra and Kenya included. Their last road trip was simply horrible though she won’t let that stop her from bringing all the girls together again.

A trip to Savannah would be relaxing. Once Porsha was back on her feet she was sold on the idea of another road trip. While out wither sister they were joking around. They saw a blood pressure machine at the pharmacy and Porsha took her’s. It says she’s at risk of hypertension. Maybe she should have did this before she agreed to a road trip.

Cynthia had to speak to Noelle’s Father, Leon, about their daughter. The boyfriend thing is still new and they need to discuss who will be giving the sex talk. Leon wants to do it. He’s very involved with his daughter and he wants to make sure she’ll be ok.

Kenya wants children of her own to worry about. Her problem with getting them is that she thinks she needs a man and marriage first. Her aunt whom she’s very close to tells her that maybe she shouldn’t let anyone stand in the way of her dream.

It’s Kandi’s dress fitting. She invited both Carmen and her mother. Before Joyce arrives Carmen was bad mouthing her. Joyce arrives and tries to be pleasant. She doesn’t like Todd but the worst she says about him is that she wants Kandi to marry someone else. She says Carmen knows him so she should understand and Carmen begins to run her mouth. She provokes Joyce with full knowledge of how hotheaded Kandi’s mother is. An argument ensues and Kandi comes out. She’s no longer excited trying out dresses. She wants to quit. Carmen was driven out by her mom and aunts to an outer room; so Kandi wants to quit. She doesn’t like confrontation.

In order to ease the atmosphere, Kandi tries on one more dress. When she comes out her aunts decided to tell her that they don’t condone the engagement either. Kandi has had enough. She goes out to join Carmen and they begin talking. Carmen says she has to make choice. She has to be hard with her mother.
