Whoever said that “crunchy edges” not being in Palm Springs would prevent any drama (Sundy “Poodle” Carter’s simple a$$ said this) was a goddamn lie cause things got “turnt up” real quick the moment Malaysia & Draya walked in the door to join Brandi, “Poodle,” & Jackie. So, let’s get it in! As Draya & Malaysia arrives in Palm Springs, both ladies are “naked wasted,” & Jackie isn’t all that thrilled. When Draya expresses how she had no desire to come to Palm Springs, “Poodle” doesn’t take well to the comment. “Poodle” then asks Draya why would she even bother showing up if she had no desire to be there, & that’s when silently takes “Poodle” to task, & of course, Jackie $hitstarter” Christie, has to mention what Draya said (keep in mind, that at this point Sundy had already left the room & DID NOT hear what Draya said… so much for wanting the ladies to come together, Jackie). Brandi, (who has quickly become my favorite newbie this season (overlooking that little incident with her & “Poodle” in the 1st episode)) was not feeling Jackie’s shady stunt, “What are you even doing, Jackie? She didn’t even hear her.”
“Poodle” who is absolutely pissed off now, decides she wants call Draya out on her past as a stripper, addressing her as “Miami (umm, excuse me “Poodle,” but aren’t you the one who had a baby for a MARRIED MAN, & has a criminal past, but I digress). Then “Poodle” then commits the ultimate foul, & brings up Draya’s son, who has NOTHING to do with this. Side note, isn’t Sundy “Poodle” Carter the one whose daughter is caught kissing a d#*k in a pic, yet you have the nerve to come for Draya’s son, who is ONLY A LITTLE CHILD, Really, trick?? Sundy dares her to come round the sofa. At this point, Draya has had enough, & decides to “put them paws on her” (S/O to Lil Scrappy). Real talk, when you mention someone’s child, that’s an OPEN INVITATION to get yo’ a$$ whooped (I don’t care who you are. In the words of the late great Bernie Mac, “You have to shut what they call the f#ck up!”).
Draya is very emotional, & points the blame RIGHTFULLY SO at Jackie. Of course, Jackie backpedals, & makes it all about her, & how her daughter hates her, & that she can relate to Draya. Draya is heated & Brandi & Malaysia still tries to calm her down, while Jackie’s “thin hairline ass” goes to check on Sundy. “Poodle” is pissed off now, & she wants to put on her sneakers cause she’s ready to fight (uh, you wait til you got your ass whooped to be ready to fight??? Did you or did you not just challenge Draya to “come round that sofa?” What did you think was gonna happen after you insulted her AND her son (Draya wasn’t gonna grab your hand & sing “We Are Family”)???
Jackie “encourages” “Poodle” to calm down cause everything is gonna be fine (cause your word is so golden, right, Jackie?). Draya later shows Jackie the respect that she didn’t show her, & tells her about Chantel & what Orlando told her. Of course, Jackie backpedals, & wishes Draya the best in her relationship with Orlando, & tries to play peacemaker, & attempts to have “Poodle” & Draya make amends. Is it me, or was I the only one hoping that Jackie would get her ass handed to her next?? Sundy’s simple ass decides she wants payback, comes in the living room, & decides to toss a drink in Draya’s face, while Jackie’s instigating ass tosses a pillow to stop Sundy. Really, b#%*h? A damn pillow? In what world do you throw a pillow to stop someone from throwing $hit at you???
After the dust settles, the ladies gather poolside & decides to play nice, & clear the air. Draya & “Poodle” go at it (cause we all know that Sundy is straight up jealous of Draya). Jackie points out how all of the ladies played a role in Draya vs “Poodle.” Uh, Jackie, you’re the one who f#%ked things up from the jump by opening that “gate” you call a mouth. Brandi said it best, “this group is bipolar.” Jackie gives TMI when she says how her & Doug (I swear, these 2 are gay swingers) fantasize about Malaysia, who is absolutely disgusted to hear this (it won’t happen in this life or the next). All of a sudden, Sundy decides to go skinny dipping in the pool, & run around naked. Ooookay.
At the dinner table, Sundy & Draya talk about their situations as single mothers (which results in “Poodle” shedding crocodile tears). Draya states a valid point on how she’s tired of people attacking her at every giving turn. So you would think the episode would come to a peaceful end here, right? WRONG, cause the next morning Sundy looks like she got hit in the eye with “a bag of nickels,” LMAO. Malaysia & Draya take “Poodle” to task for being disrespectful, & Sundy could care less with her “poodle” ass, & doesn’t apologize. Jackie, of course, decides to stir the pot, & accuses Draya of “playing the victim.” Brandi, then goes on to say how doesn’t consider Draya a friend cause she doesn’t use the word loosely.
Next week, Jackie’s sprung daughter, Chantel, returns! Real talk, Chantel wanted the “D,” Orlando wasn’t gonna give it to her, & now she’s bitter & all “caught up” in her emotions!
