Let's Get Ready to Rumble!
|Tasha Mack vs. Melanie Barnett-Davis|
This week it's Melanie vs. Tasha: Fresh out of the arbitration ring, the battle between Melanie and Tasha rages on. Tasha enlists NeNe Leakes of Real Housewives of Atlanta fame to orchestrate the annual Sunbeam Fashion Show. Tasha has headed the show for years but Melanie is fed up with the beyond ghetto stamp having been displayed. [It looks like] something straight out of The Wiz, Melanie quips. Inspired by a split in Sunbeam support, Melanie "commandeers" the fashion show from Tasha per the Sunbeam By-laws. Tasha of course puts up a fight and storms out of the meeting but not before she "little girl's" Melanie one more time by expressing how Melanie is the most ghetto of them all. "You ain't nothing but a Baller's wife who don't do nothin' and ain't nothing more ghetto than that!" Next Week, Round 5!

Derwin vs. Kwan: Derwin is dismayed by Kwan's rejection of his attempt to instill team camaraderie. The Sabers have been winning but Kwan doesn't want to play the kiss the A$$ of the franchise player game. Derwin is further annoyed by the fact that Kwan not only refuses to hang out with the team, but explains that he is not there to make friends but to win championships. Kwan adds insult to injury by insinuating that the "hanging out" between team members sounds suspect or a little "Clay-ess". Other guys catch the riff and back out from hanging out as well. Derwin picks up his bottom lip from the floor and retreats.
Malik vs. Derwin: Still angry about Derwin's betrayal, Malik instructs Derwin to "go and kill yourself". He further reminds him that they are not "cool" just because Malik attended DJ's birthday party. "...I'm his Godfather...the kid can't help that his Daddy is an asshole..." By the way whatever happened to Punka$$ Chauncey? Malik turns the knife a little harder when he snickers to Derwin, "...Just when you thought he was your boy..."
Finally, it is Jason vs. 'Sounds of Blackness'. An affiliation with Chardonnay is changing Jason's mind to embrace his blackness. However, he's struggling. He's questioning when his blackness comes into play but can't help but be ecstatic when Chardonnay's friend calls him 'brother'." That is until he learns a few quick lessons of what it means to be a brother. His shopping bag goes off after exiting the mall store, he's stopped but the white guy who walked out with him simultaneously is let go. Jason questions how a non-famous, non-rich, average black person exists in the world.
Episode 4 was one of awakenings. We can't wait to see how the drama unfolds. So, are you team Tasha or Team Melanie?
