“That’s Fucci. That’s some s*** Tami would wear. I said it.” – Evelyn

Shaunie feels it’s a good time to change the subject, telling Evelyn that her boys want to move into their own place as Shareef’s starts college soon.

Her motherly instincts are kicking in, and she wants them to focus on school and not on the girls. Shaunie’s concerned as they feel some of these girl’s thot instincts start at a young age. Shaunie jokes with Evelyn about needing her “connections” to keep tabs on Myles and Shareef.

“Girl, the hoes start early.” – Shaunie

“Let me know what you need girl. I got people with databases. You need me to background check somebody? I got you.” Evelyn
