Having appeared as a guest on Live, this is NeNe’s first time in the host’s chair. She also previously interviewed Strahan as a guest on her online talk show Fab Gab, where she peppered him with probing questions like, “Do you shop for your own clothes? Why didn’t you come see Cinderella on Braaaaahway yet?” and “Are you single?”
Sheree asks Jessica why she hightailed it out of her birthday dinner. Jess explains, Josie invited a boy over, and she wanted to spy and/or surprise them by returning home earlier than expected. Sheree doesn't believe her. She pushes the issue, asking if Drea made her feel uncomfortable, but Jessica stands by her story. You mean the world doesn't revolve around Drea? Woah. Somebody better check her email. In all seriousness, I don't believe Jessica either, but I also can't blame her for fleeing from that restaurant.
Sheree pretty much tells Jessica that they all talked about her after she left. Sheree reminds Jessica of the comments she made about Gia's birth mother, adding, "We all came to the consensus that your timing was off." Jessica plays dumb. Sheree chastises Jessica for ruining Mayte's celebratory moment. And Jessica plays dumber. Sheree urges Jessica to reach out to Mayte, adding, "You don't have to be wrong to offer an apology." Jessica says she wants to make things right. Mayte's keeper will stop this from happening.
