Forget the fact that Minnie has lied to her friends over and over and over again, obviously sexual attraction could be the only reason, right? I suppose if you live in an alternate universe where you’re the grown mother of a cast member on a reality show and can’t manage to keep out of the drama yourself. But I think even those who don’t care for Juicy can see what a stretch this is.
Reality TV reunions are by nature, just for the sake of rehashing the same drama we watched all season and in some cases, get some new insight into why some things went down the way they did during the show’s season. Oh and to see who stayed friends and who hates each other now.
Little Women: Atlanta is no different. While we did not really get to the bottom of anything, we sure know who hates each other again. We also got treated to a barrage of interesting insults such as “you belong on the animal channel” and “two ash trays for ankles.” At least those are some new ones.
Well, Little Women: Atlanta fans, we made it through season two, just barely. As far as season finales go, this one just so happens to be on the tamer side but given the brawls, babies, and wedding blow out plans we have sat through all season, it’s a nice change of pace. Chicken wings won’t be thrown and the shade is at a minimum, but we finally get to see these ladies come together as real friends before they rip each other to shreds next week at the reunion.
Last week, we learned the deeply saddening news that Emily Fernandez’s newborn son JJ passed away. Best friend Bri Barlup knows she needs to be there for Emily to help her grieve and heal so she has decided to move back to Dallas to support Emily. As noble as that is, there is one catch – her boyfriend and baby daddy, Wooda, is settled in Atlanta now and doesn’t want to pick up and go. She knows she has to sit down to try and convince him, but that won’t be easy.
Little Women: Atlanta is in full wedding mode, thanks to Monie Cashette’s recent engagement. But if you have ever planned a wedding (or watched this show), you know that big events mean even bigger drama and this wedding is going to be no exception. Friendships are shifting faster than I can keep up with but in an effort to keep you all in the loop, I’m going to try my best!
The day that Monie has been waiting for arrives. No, not the wedding itself but wedding dress shopping! She brings Bri Barlup and Ms. Juicy along to help her pick something out while bragging about going to the best wedding dress boutique in Atlanta. When they arrive, they are given pencils and paper and have to walk around the store, writing down which dresses they like… isn’t that how it works at IKEA? I’m not impressed so far.
On Little Women: Atlanta, we are slowly but surely switching from baby fever to bridal fever. With Monie Cashette’s wedding planning in full swing, the girls have no choice but to come along for the ride and see how the friendships play out with the Bridezilla that can’t budget.
Monie has been keeping herself busy with anger management classes and delusions of wedding grandeur. Poor Morlin is stuck not only trying to keep Monie’s temper in check, but her spending too. Good luck with that, buddy. One way he has suggested they cut costs is by supplying their own alcohol at the reception and Monie tentatively agrees, provided she can still get “the fancy stuff.” I was busy wondering when Monie got so high maintenance until she makes a bee line for the Moscato, stating that she only deserves the best. The best being a $16 bottle of wine.
With baby Aubrey still in the NICU, Amanda and Andrea Salinas head to the gym with Minnie Ross to work off some of those bad vibes from the psychic dinner gone wrong. Minnie feels like the psychic was a fake but right on cue, the lights in the gym go out. Minnie is spooked but the real issue here is that The Other Twins stirred up drama yet again and Minnie is pissed Ms. Juicy jumped on the opportunity to question her miscarriage. I would like to think, along with Minnie, that issue has been put to bed, but Ms. Juicy isn’t about to give up that bone.
After yet another food fight on last week’s episode of Little Women: Atlanta, this time at a party for Bri Barlup’s three year old son (yes, you are reading this right), Bri is trying to recover with some much needed family time. Amanda Salinas and Monie Cashette (one of the offenders) show up to see how Bri is doing. Monie sort of dances around accepting some responsibility for what happened but takes the easy road out when she sees that Bri is more upset with Ms. Juicy for bringing the Other Twins, who had beef with Monie.
Andrea Salinas is home and recovering from her recent C-section and getting as much help as possible from her parents while they are in town. Her parents have to head back to Texas and bring up the subject of Andrea coming back to live with both of her kids when Aubrey is out of the hospital. Andrea isn’t ready to deal with that big of a decision, so just leaves it on the table and says goodbye to her parents and son, which she hates doing.
