BFV Recap: Tamar Frustrates Her Sisters + Towanda Believes Evelyn May Never Get over Divorce
The sisters discuss their emotional sit-down with Michael and Miss Wanda.
“But what had made you invite her though?” – Tamar to Toni
Toni stands by her decision of inviting Michael and Miss Wanda to a restaurant to talk everything out, and she says she felt it was the only way to finally get answers about everything that transpired over the years.
Trina is still coming to terms with the fact that most of the pain Michael caused her and her siblings was his choice alone, and not Wanda’s. In fact, Michael revealed that he was the one that decided not to show up to her wedding.
While Michael may have made his own choices, the sisters still question if Wanda could have talked sense into Michael and convinced him to do right by his children. Traci on the overhand feels it’s important to be respectful to Wanda regardless.
“I don’t know anything about my sisters and Miss Wanda, but I’m going to respect her because that’s who my father chose to marry.” – Traci
Toni understands that the situation is hurtful for everyone, but it’s time for everyone to forgive each other and move forward.
“I ain’t ready. So you gotta bring your a*s by yourself.” – Tamar
Tamar is planning a get together for Vince’s birthday but she doesn’t want to invite Miss Wanda.
Trina, Towanda and Traci go zip lining.
Trina has a little crush on the instructor and Towanda is excited to finally do something she’s always wanted to do.
They discuss the fact that Tamar is planning a birthday celebration for Vince and Logan is also in Mexico when no one else brought their kids on the trip. It just doesn’t seem fair to them that Logan and Vince are in Mexico when the agreement was it was just supposed to be the sisters plus Evelyn and Michael.
“I think it’s extremely selfish for Tamar to invite her husband Vince here for a birthday party because that’s not what we’re here for.” – Towanda
Tamar and Michael hash it out.
Tamar tells Michael that she had an emotional outburst the other night because she was in shock that his hurtful choices over the years were not influenced or made by Miss Wanda.
Things get intense when Tamar tells him she’s not comfortable inviting Wanda to Vince’s birthday celebration.
“You can’t give people a ray of hope?” – Michael to Tamar
“I don’t feel like my Dad has to come with a package deal. I don’t feel that way.” – Tamar
Although Michael is frustrated that Wanda is not getting an invite, he can appreciate that Tamar wants to work towards getting comfortable enough to start inviting Wanda to family events.
The sisters don’t show up to Vince’s birthday celebration.
“I don’t know where my sisters are. They were invited.” – Tamar
Although she’s not sure why none of her siblings showed up, Tamar doesn’t let it get to her because Vince’s close friends were in attendance and he had a good time.
Surprise guests include Michael and Vince’s brother. Michael makes everyone emotional when he talks about how close he is to Vince and how he sees him as another son.
Tamar even made sure there were fireworks. They end the party with a passionate kiss.
Traci and Michael catch up after returning from Mexico.
Michael explains that he feels it’s not fair that Wanda wasn’t invited to Mexico when Tamar brought Logan and Vince.
He also says he didn’t mean to make Evelyn leave and he just wishes everyone could forgive each other and move on from the past.
Evelyn says she has cooled off about Michael and Wanda showing up in Mexico but Towanda isn’t buying it.
Evelyn feels like Michael and Wanda must be miserable since they showed up on the family trip.
“They feel left out, so they fighting for a place that they feel is there.” – Evelyn to Towanda and Trina
Although Towanda is hearing her mother out, she is starting to feel like Evelyn may never move on from her messy split with Michael.
“I think that there’s some residue and pain for Mommy…I think maybe she will never get over it.” – Towanda
