Black Ink Crew Chicago Teaser!! Don decides to get the crew together at 9MAG in honor of his sister who committed suicide on the last episode of the reality show. His sister had some mental health issues and she was in the hospital trying to address her issues but I guess it must have been too late and she ended her life.
Dealing with mental health is not easy for anyone and it can be especially hard on the people around you. We felt Don’s tears when he received that call from the hospital that his sister had passed away. We are so sorry that Don lost his sister and we are praying for him and his family, by addressing the issue on the show, maybe it could help someone who may be going through the same thing.
Instead of being depressed about his sister, Don realizes that life is way too short and its too much confusion, drama and back stabbing at 9MAG. He wants to get the issues out on the table and go back to being about the business and that’s 9MAG.
Kat seems to still have an issue with Ryan, she keeps saying let’s move on but she hasn’t moved on herself. Ryan needs to quit running from a tattoo shop that he supposedly owns, his actions have us all out here questioning whether or not he really owns 9MAG. If he owns the popular tattoo shop and he doesn’t want Kat working there, he has every right to fire her a$$. She’s playing the victim, she is not the victim in the situation, it takes two to tango and she makes herself look stupid every time she opens her mouth.
Van fights Ryan over Kat, that makes no sense and how can he make executive decisions without Ryan? 9MAG is not running professionally, that’s painfully obvious but it seems to me that Van may be jealous of Ryan. This is what the third fight this season between the two, Kat is not worth it, she left and went to LA, when that didn’t work out, she’s back at 9MAG. Ryan can’t be all the blame, Kat knew Ryan was back with Rachel when they went up to the cabin, they did what they did which is still unclear but they were both wrong and she was especially wrong for pulling Rachel to the side exposing what occurred between her and Ryan. Now she not only looks stupid, she feels stupid.
In the sneak peek for next week’s episode, even after last weeks scuffle between Ryan and Van, Kat is still hanging out with the crew and everyone seems happy that Don has brought everyone together except for Ryan and Rachel. Don speaks a few words of how much his 9MAG family means to him and how life is too short for the pettiness and the drama, they are family, act like one.
Don asks them all if they have anything they need to get off of their chest, I’m not surprised that Kat speaks first, she always has a lot to say and that’s what victims do, talk, talk and talk. Kat semi sort of admits to the mistakes she’s made and explains that she feels most at home in Chicago verses living in LA. Her speech gets interrupted when Rachel stops her to let her and the world know that Ryan started 9MAG with support from the other artists but 9MAG is his, he owns the shop.
Van acts like he doesn’t understand what Rachel is talking about, just because Van, Kat and Phor were with Ryan when he started 9MAG doesn’t mean they own 9MAG with him unless they have invested money in the shop and so far, I haven’t heard that any of them invested money. They may have helped 9MAG get where it is today but to say you started 9MAG with Ryan is totally different than investing.
Rachel was tired of hearing Kat’s mouth, she makes it clear that if all of them are gone, 9MAG would still be there with Ryan as boss and she is correct. That right there made Kat feel like she had to expose Ryan even more because clearly Rachel doesn’t really understand the magnitude of their relationship. She tells Rachel that she chose to leave for LA and had she not, Ryan would still be chasing her. That is what Kat says, maybe its true, maybe not, but why is Kat trying to hurt Rachel? If Kat is done with Ryan, move on and let it go but its obvious that she has a thing for Ryan and if she can cause more confusion in his relationship with Rachel, she is and she has.

Married To Medicine Recap!
Married To Medicine Recap!! Dr. Heavenly claims to be a relationship expert but she needs to stick with being a dentist or maybe going back to college to understand what a relationship expert really is. What qualifies her as being a relationship expert, because she calls her husband “daddy?”
I have much respect for Dr. Damon, he is always calm, very humble but he is the King in his castle, he never raises his voice but he stands his ground and supports his wife whether she is wrong or not. Dr. Heavenly is certainly blessed to have Dr. Damon as her husband, but she goes too far. She can be as outspoken as she wants too but the questions she asked Toya and Dr. Eugene was not her business and I applaud Toya for going off. Yes we see Toya and for us, she does seem a little disrespectful towards her husband but we see more of that coming from Quad towards her husband. The questions she asked the couple were for her benefit and not for the couples.
Dr. Simone and Cecil have always planned the couple trips through out the years and they have always been informative and helpful, they have always participated with their own issues but Dr. Heavenly refused to share any of her own problems with the group and that wasn’t fair. She claims that the issues she and her husband have are minor, bull that is bull donkey. No marriage is perfect and neither is hers.
Once she began to ask questions she seemed to pushed everyone’s buttons, it was a disaster on the beach! Jackie finally breaks down emotionally and allows herself to be open with Curtis in front of the group but Curtis doesn’t seem to see the big picture. He married a doctor, she knew she was a workaholic but for Dr. Heavenly to ask Dr. Jackie what did the other woman he cheated with do that she didn’t do? That is a hurtful question which shouldn’t have been shared for the group, but shared with Dr. Jackie and Cecil. Dr. Jackie was a trooper though, she opened up, I don’t fault her for wanting to fight for her marriage, I just wish Curtis would fight for her just a bit more.
Dr. Simone and Cecil hit the fan, especially when Dr. Simone asked him if it was okay for him to invest their money without discussing it with her first? Cecil went ham, he got loud, he told Heavenly that he and his wife have discussed it, the situation was over but Heavenly kept pushing. He stormed off the beach, he felt bamboozled but he acknowledged that he was wrong. Cecil and Dr. Greg followed him and they calmed him down. He apologized to his wife and the group but this is not over, Dr. Simone has already filed for divorce.
Quad and Greg are in a rock and a hard place. I feel what Quad is saying, she just wants appreciation and as her husband he can’t continue to throw up the fact that he takes care of her, he’s supposed too but Quad is very disrespectful to her husband and its embarrassing. Maybe if she shows his appreciation for her, maybe their marriage can last. Paying bills for the both is what a man is supposed to do, he can’t continue to throw that in her face when she has a job and college educated.
Mariah shares with Dr. Jackie that she has been where she is now. Yes, her husband has cheated on her and its okay to fight for your marriage. Mariah definitely impressed me by sharing her story and Dr. Jackie was definitely appreciative that Mariah opened up and shared her story.
If it wasn’t for Dr. Damon, this trip would have been a disaster. Heavenly likes to push buttons and with these ladies, it always turns into conflict. Now that Dr. Simone and Cecil are divorcing, who will plan their next couples treat? Please don’t let it be Dr. Heavenly, she is too shady for me.
