After last week’s explosive first episode of “Basketball Wives”, we needed something a little more chill, and this week’s episode was just that. Suzie has diarrhea of the mouth again and is minding everyone’s business but her own. She’s bothered by the fact that Kenya wants to be a singer and is making YouTube videos at the age of 35, and makes sure everyone in the circle (including Kenya) is aware of her frustration. I’m sure when we heard the news that Kenya was trying to make a music video by putting her clips on YouTube our eyebrows raised a little too, but it seemed like this was a life or death situation to Suzie and she just WOULD NOT STOP TALKING about it during the ENTIRE episode. Suzie, why do you care so much?
In other news, Evelyn is still planning her wedding to Chad, and is trying to find someone to walk her down the aisle since she doesn’t think her father will do it. Although she’s excited about marrying the “love of her life”, she feels a little skeptical after hearing rumors of infidelity, and doesn’t want to go back down that road of being with a cheating athlete. The two sit down to chat and apparently, they are both worried about his ability to remain committed after they are married. Ev explains to her fiance that she rather that he be honest with her if he’s cheating instead of lying. She tells him that she’s not trying to make him live in a box, but in a way she does. She wants him to tighten up because they’re about to get married in six months, and that she doesn’t want their relationship to end up like everybody else’s…she doesn’t want them to fail.
Of course, she doesn’t want him to cheat on her at all, but it seemed as if they both knew that Chad was unable to keep that commitment. Chad went on to say that while he’s on the road, the temptation is very strong, although he tries to stay committed to her. “Being able to commit to one individual over a long period of time is going to be new to me; is new to me,” Chad explained.
After an intense discussion, Evelyn and Chad came to an agreement that she wants him to be faithful to her and make her happy, but if he’s honest with her then she would have no choice but to accept it, respect him and unwillingly deal with the issue, since he was honest (and kept it clean by using a condom). ”Tell me! And go to the store and get some condoms! I’ll be sick like a m—f—-a but I still want to know!” Ev told him. She went on to say, “What can I do but respect you and know that you’re telling me the truth, rather than hide it. Because at the end of the day, you don’t have to tell me nothing.”
Tough love. Check out clips from their conversation here.
