SWV Reunited Finale brings out the B$tch in Coko. This female group was one of the hottest groups in the 90’s. Coko is recording a gospel song, ‘At Your Feet.’ Coko can’t make up her mind if she wants to stay with SWV or sing gospel. She claims her heart is with gospel music and singing the type of songs SWV sings only confuses the fans. She is correct, she needs to decide what she wants to do because these other two ladies, Taj and Leelee are really depending on her.
Lelee and Taj join her in the hotel room where she plays them the song in hopes that it’ll change their mind in allowing her to do both her solo gospel career and focus on SWV. Of course, they do like the track and have a change of heart. But it still doesn’t negate the fact, Coko needs to choose, they said they would support either way, she needs to just be honest and I believe she is using them to make herself known in the gospel world which will revive her solo career.
Still in New York, the group has to meet with their new record label Sony to sign on the dotted line but, it turns out they can’t sign because they are still in contract with Mass Appeal Label. They still owe this label a record and somehow they thought they were out of the contract. How, I don’t know but, Sony executives are really pissed because they had no knowledge of this deal and it makes the record label look incompetent. They need to fix this situation or Sony will walk away.
It’s then time for the ladies to meet with Marcus Siskind of Mass Appeal Entertainment. Marcus from Mass Appeal meets with ladies and explains he is not letting them out of the contract and they still owe a record. The ladies are explaining to him, their fans didn’t know they put out an album last year. I know I didn’t, they were supposed to do marketing and press which is a violation of there contract according to the ladies. Marcus denies there accusations and he is standing firm on his contract that the group signed together. Taj goes hard on Marcus, “We want out!” Marcus manages to control the group, which leaves Lelee to relent with, “The bottom line is we signed the contract.” Now they are worried were where they stand with current manager Jeff Robinson. The ladies make there way over to meet with Jeff. He is definitely dumbfounded by the whole ordeal that he didn’t know any this and he has never worked with clients such them. He still wants to work with them so now they have to handle this situation immediately.
The final stop of the tour is finally here. Upon the group’s arrival in Los Angeles for the show at the Greek Theatre, Coko meets with road manger Cory, and says she changed her mind and doesn’t want to record another album with Marcus’ record label, which by default means she doesn’t want to continue with SWV. Cory reads her the riot act explaining she can’t just leave the other girls out in the cold, these ladies depend on her and this is the perfect comeback time because there fans are loyal.
SWV make it to the stage of the Greek for their last show on the tour. The girls are amped and play a great set to an engaging crowd. After the show is over, the dressing room is packed with people and Coko kicks everyone out to talk about “SWV” things with the group. Upon dropping the news that she doesn’t want to record another album because Mass Appeal is still involved, it’s every man for themselves. “We could be sued!” Taj screams. Lelee then accuses Coko of being on medication and repeating how they broke up the last time. Clearly the other two ladies are hurt, they have left there families to do this comeback tour and what was is for? For them to just tour a couple of states and that’s it, this is Leelee’s livelihood she doesn’t have a husband like Taj and Coko so I do feel the most for Leelee. Her story is heartbreaking and I’m praying they can all come together.
Coko is using this Mass Appeal situation as a way to validate her decision to continue with singing gospel. She claims if they can record without Marcus or his label she may consider staying in the group.. Once again, we end an episode with a fight, except like Lelee points out, this fight felt different. We’re left with more questions than we were coming in. What’s next for SWV and are they coming back for another season.
Black Ink Crew Young Bae
Black Ink Crew, the hood came out of Young Bae on the last episode of the hit reality show and Sky is partly responsible. Her ratchet and hood behavior really needs to stop, she’s too extra and she seems like she is running Black Ink and not Ceaser.
But again, I digress, the Black Ink crew loves to throw parties but this time it was for a good cause. Young Bae hadn’t been able to get in touch with her mom who stayed in Korea with her dad. She wants to find out what’s going on with her mom because her dad was very abusive to her mom and her siblings. She left Korea at age 16 with $80 in her pocket and came to America, so she’s had it rough but look at her now. Kitty suggested they throw a costume party and the proceeds will go to her so that she can fly to Korea and check on her mom.
With all Black Ink parties, their is a fight waiting to happen and this party was no different. It went all the way left in 2.5 seconds with Bae beating a b$tch a$$. Sky decides to hire a new manager for 113 without Ceaser’s okay or his permission. She wants to get her ratchet a$$ back down to Atlanta,so she hired the first thing smoking without even checking her art work or her resume. HELL she could have hired me if that’s all it took but back to the story, during the costume party Sky arrives with the new manager whose name is Tatiana, she never introduced her as the manager, she just brought her in and this chick took over like nobody’s business.
Sky wanted Tatiana to fit right in with the shop but that’s only because she had her own motive, getting back down to the dirty south. Tatiana supposedly has a lot of experience managing tattoo shops, Sky loved her personality and she felt this chick would fit right in. Wrong move, she was way too aggressive, approaching Donna and Bae about tatting people to make money when she didn’t even know the reason for the costume person nor did they know who she was and why was she in the shop barking orders. She said something smart and Bae tapped that a$$ along with Donna and Jadah. Once the fight ended, Sky sat looking like humpty damn dumpty, Ceaser needs to wake the HELL up before Sky’s destroys Black Ink’s reputation.
Sky brings Tatiana back to the shop to apologize to Bae and the rest of the crew but mostly Bae. Young Bae didn’t owe this girl any explanation at all, she came in her face way too aggressive, however after she apologized Bae explained her situation, she understood why Bae jumped her, she explained to the crew that she was there to clear the air and to have fun and make dope tattoos. She then decides she’s going judge Bae and Alex’s tats giving them compliments but with Donna, she wasn’t impressed but real talk, know is ever impressed with Donna’s tats. Tatiana won’t last another week if she continues with that piss poor attitude.
Little Women ATL Recap
Little Women Atlanta recap!! These ladies are small but they are very feisty, I guess being small and having to deal with their height or their weight, it makes them defensive which is understandable. However, by them being small, you would think they would all stick together and support each other but I guess jealousy and envy comes in all shapes and sizes.
Monie decided she wanted to surprise her husband Morlin for his 37th birthday by learning to dance sexy in lingerie. When she said she had to left feet, she wasn’t lying. It was funny watching her try and learn those dance moves, maybe she’ll be on the next season of Dancing With The Stars.
Tanya is having issues with trying to take care of her three children since her c-section and she needs more help. My issue with Tanya, why is she having babies so close in age and by different baby daddies? One of children’s father is living with her while going to school. He is doing the best he can to support her and another man’s baby, they aren’t together allegedly but he was there for when she gave birth to her third child and the father who is the child’s parent was nowhere around. So she decides to send her two toddlers to Washington D.C. with Vaughn one of her children’s father until she can heal from her c-section. Nico arrives at the house, the other baby daddy and she tells him that Jaidan and Luna are leaving and going to Washington, D.C. for three weeks. It’s not like he really cares, he’s never around and he doesn’t give her much money anyway for his children. I wouldn’t have told him anything, he knew she needed help but he wasn’t there for her but again, she continues to keep these babies and now its too much for her. I hope she got her tubes tide, she has two many babies for an average sized woman.
I don’t like that damn Minnie, she is as fake as f$ck and a liar. All of a sudden, she wants to be a radio personality when she’s a hairstylists. She needs to figure out what she wants to do with her life for real. Every week its something with Minnie, she wants too lose weight, she wants to run a marathon, she lied about being pregnant and now a radio personality? She needs and craves so much attention that it makes her an ugly small person from the outside. Her veins are showing and the twins really need to slowly back away from her, she’s too damn toxic.
Monie’s surprise birthday party for Morlin, she wanted everyone to wear white, they all looked really nice. Everyone was having a good time until Sam approached Minnie about her bad attitude towards her, but Monie was able to prevent anything from going crazy. This was Morlin’s night and she was ready to perform her sexy dance for him. Monie came out in her sexy lingerie and heels and did the damn thang. Oh they got it on that night, he was in heaven and so were his friends, it was cute though.
After Monie performed, here comes Minnie wanting attention for herself when this was Morlin and Monie’s time. But, I digress, she announces that she got a new job, with Karlous and Chico Bean on their Podcast 85 South as a Podcast personality. The look on Juicy’s face said it all and I can’t blame Juicy, Minnie is always up to something. Even though Juicy is small and thick, you never hear her complain about her size, her weight, the way she looks, she’s always happy and she tries to be supportive. Yes, Juicy is messy as HELL, but her job is a radio personality. Minnie will never rise to Juicy’s level.
