Being Mary Jane Recap!! As Mary Jane and PJ deal with feeling homesick for Atlanta, Niecy struggles with the public out cry of her new financial status and when her violent reactions land her in hot water, the family is left to deal with fallout.
It is great to see the family back in this episode of Being Mary Jane, even if Niecy hasn’t matured much. I really expected Niecy to grow up with her new found financial status but when she purchased her child’s father a car, I knew then, she was not going to have her money for very long.
Niecy gets One-hundred-and-fifty-thousand dollars for the brutality she suffered from an Atlanta police officer and that’s a whole lot of coins to a single parent of two but if her aunt Mary Jane was still in Atlanta, Niecy probably wouldn’t have found herself in the situation she is currently in.
M.J.’s going through one of the realest of New York City experiences—being lonely in a city of 8 million people. So to counter that loneliness, she and Paul Jr. spend the bulk of the episode attempting to cook their father’s ribs and homemade barbecue sauce on the balcony of M.J.’s $1,000-a-night hotel room, which ends in obvious failure.
All her life, M.J.’s mom, Helen, just wanted to be a prim-and-proper black woman who wears her pearls and every time, she has to fight the air and a woman in a bad wig because her off springs’ reputations. Helen is looking forward to having D’Asia inducted into Jack and Jane. Much like the real-life Jack and Jill, the great benefits of the program come with a strong dash of class and respectability politics. With Niecy’s fight being on the World Wide Web for all to see, Joan, who had previously agreed to endorse D’Asia for membership, backs out.
Joan falls back on the most obvious “But what does she come from?” line of class, associating D’Asia with her father Patrick’s battle with drugs and sister Niecy’s fighting, as the reason D’Asia is unacceptable for membership to Jack and Jane. Helen gives a “You know I know your dirt” monologue to the J and J mothers, which gets two of them to stand up for Helen while revealing their own family secrets. Passing on wealth is notoriously hard for black families, and each lady was struggling through an aspect of it.
What was obvious from the beginning of the episode, with Niecy fighting a girl in the club over nothing, that was probably a set up. Niecy being 21 years old and immature didn’t think there was going to be some major consequence connected to her settlement. But it wasn’t the fight that did Niecy in, it was her clap back on Twitter the day after the fight hit the internet. This is round two of a lesson she should have already learned, especially when there is money connected to her keeping her mouth shut and her thumbs still. Because she mentioned her case against the cop in a tweet, Niecy broke the settlement agreement and was forced to return the $150K, which she had already spent the bulk of. How can she learn from this situation when she didn’t learn from her last situation? Her mouth will get her in trouble every time.
Ww knew Niecy’s buying Dante a car earlier this season was going to go nowhere but straight toward false expectations, hurt feelings and another woman, but Niecy didn’t really see that until she went to get the car back and found Dante’s second baby mama driving the car. The other baby mama gave a guilt-tripping speech on being a single mother with no family to support her.
Niecy finally tells Dante to never call her for anything outside of their daughter and that he can go play Rufio of the Lost Boys with some other unfortunate woman. Her son, Treyvion, is coming of age and deserves to see his mother make better decisions. Maybe that will come in the near future.
Black Panther’s Michael B Jordan & Lupita Nyongo
Black Panther the movie was great, an all black movie with all black characters was amazing too see. The actors and actresses really stepped up and did their thing. I was thoroughly impressed with this movie as well as the entire cast.
The movie is definitely breaking all box offices all over the world and other countries as well, we shouldn’t have expected any less but what’s more juicier than the movie? Its the tea behind the scenes that has the fans, viewers, staff and other celebrities talking about the chemistry between Michael B Jordan and Lupita Nyongo.
Talented and handsome Michael B. Jordan and the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o may be allegedly creeping on the low low and if they are, please reveal yourselves, we love to see another beautiful black couple making waves in the movie industry together. Both are talented actors and actresses, they are lovely too look at together, we see a match made in heaven.
The two have have actually been doing some devilish flirting on social media and keeping close to each other while making public appearances. The way they look at each other is not from one cast mate to another, its like I want you now from the both of them. It’s so cute though and you know we are suckers for love.
The flirting began on Monday when Lupita shared a video of her storming into Michael’s dressing room at The View and wanting him to do a push up. According to reliable sources close to the actress this wasn’t the first time she had shared a video of Michael, the two made a bet on the set of the Black Panther, and Lupita won the bet, her prize was to command Michael to perform ‘on call pushups’ anytime she wanted. Well, he does work out, look at his biceps, she should have thought of a different type of exercise but it’s still cute.
Monday Michael replied to her video with a now deleted tweet that read: ‘Bring them chocolate cakes back. You ready for round 2?’
Lupita then replied: ‘No dessert until you come correct, @michaelb4jordan! ‘#youknowyouwantthis #youaintready.’
Let’s get it on ya’ll!! They would make a delicious couple, hopefully something does come out of them making the movie a success as well as a romance. Black Panther was phenomenal.
Cardi B At The Grammy’s
Break out reality star Cardi B is ready for the Grammy’s!! Whatever, she puts her hands on, its a hit, she’s got the magic touch and this is her year!
The former stripper and reality star was asked what was she most looking forward to at the Grammy’s? Cardi answered, “Me, hopefully winning an award. Like what else? Like that’s all I think about to be honest.” Sounds just like a Cardi B answer to me, she holds nothing back, we love her no nonsense style, her craziness and her ability to just be real. She is also excited for her man’s group Migo’s who are also nominated.
Cardi B and Bruno Mars are expected to perform there breakout song, “Finesse,” tonight on the Grammy’s! I so love this song, it takes you back to the 90’s on the “In Living Color,” stage with her and Bruno Mars. What I love most about this song, Cardi is having so much fun, the smile on her face says it all and the connection she has with Bruno in this song is amazing, they both deserve to win!!
