  1. Jackie is so fake. She had all that mouth last week but was shook at Tami’s event and kept looking over her shoulder afraid Evelyn was going to run up on her. I can’t stand Jackie right now.

  2. I am somewhat ok with Ev and Jenn being friends kinda, sorta, lol again. Forgive but I would not forget. Ev sold that friendship for cameras. They cannot go back exactly where they were but maybe they can build something new. It started over something stupid anyway. Both of them are in different spaces in their lives. Jenn is divorced and with someone and Ev is engaged with a new baby. That was then this is now. I think its ok that they are cool again. I guess. lol
