Cecil upsets Dr. Simone at dinner.
Dr. Simone and Cecil go out on a date.
It’s been a huge adjustment with him moving back in and them having s*x again.
They reflect that the previous year was a bad one. And Simone says she never wants to be there again. However, he needs to hold himself accountable for their issues so they can truly move on.
“Some of the stuff you gotta own and validate my feelings on.” – Simone
She then tells Cecil that he really hasn’t understood why his friendship with Tammy hurt her so much.
As for Cecil, he tells her that it’s not like he was ever alone with Tammy. They were together around other people.
But Simone reminds him that he actually went out to dinner alone with Tammy while Simone’s uncle was sick in the hospital.
During this stressful time, Simone felt like he wasn’t there for her.
In a green screen interview, Cecil says he feels like Simone bringing this up caught him off guard.
Since Simone feels like he’s not taking ownership for the situation and just making excuses, she storms off.
Dr. Contessa plans to see her father again.
Scott and Contessa are doing the kids’ hair.
The kids request that Contessa’s father Gerald be FaceTimed. But since he doesn’t have a an Apple product, a speakerphone conversation will have to suffice.
But he’s going to try to come to town in two weeks. So Contessa promises to buy his plane tickets.
As far as his cancer diagnosis, he claims he’s been feeling better and taking his meds/vitamins.
Lauren gets a surprise.
After Lauren tells Mariah she wants a more grown up wardrobe since she’s going to high school. Mariah invites a fashion designer to help her find her new look.
She tries on some clothes.
In a green screen interview, Mariah says she became a woman at 25 when she had Lauren. She gets emotional.
It’s time for a girls trip.
Toya FaceTimes Simone.
She tells Simone that she’s thinking about planning a girls trip to a winery.
But Simone isn’t sure it’s a good idea for Toya to host if she’s going to beef with anyone else.
However, Toya plans on inviting everyone, including Contessa.
Dr. Heavenly and Mariah hash it out in a church.
Heavenly prays as she waits for Mariah to arrive. In a green screen interview, she says her relationship with Mariah has been awful for a while now. But she’s ready to own her actions so they can move forward.
After Mariah arrives, she greets Heavenly with a hug.
Heavenly says that she wanted to meet at the church so things wouldn’t get messy between them.
She feels it was time that she humbled herself to talk things out with Mariah.
Mariah then asks what she did to Heavenly that offended her so much in the first place.
Heavenly then says she doesn’t appreciate that Mariah has told so many lies on her.
When it comes to the cheating accusations about Damon, Mariah says she really did hear he has been unfaithful. So it was said in retaliation.
Now Heavenly isn’t buying this. Mariah then says that she only said that because Heavenly said that Aydin has a small p*nis.
Heavenly then says that Mariah said that in a previous conversation.
Regardless, Heavenly reveals that she may have issues with Mariah because she feels Mariah is a lot like her sister.
Both women agree to do better and are apologetic for what they have done to each other.
They agree to start off with a text message friendship.
The women are heading out for their Girls Trip.
Toya has rented out a party bus.
All the ladies show up, including Dr. Jarrett.
Mariah tells the ladies that Aydin isn’t feeling well, so she has to keep checking in on him.
In a green screen interview, Simone says that she and Cecil argued for hours after their date. So things are awkward between them.
Simone suggests all the women name the one thing they need to work on during their bus ride. She says she needs more patience and she needs to stop being so loud.
Quad says she is extremely stubborn. The ladies seem to agree with this wholeheartedly.
Toya and Contessa clash, again.
Contessa says she needs to meet people where they are and be more matter of fact. Toya thinks this sounds more like Contessa herself feels she doesn’t have a problem.
After Simone says that Contessa should not talk about people behind their backs, Toya interjects and says that Contessa lied on her about the boob hitting situation.
She also says that Scott lied when he recapped what happened.
But Contessa says that Toya never even checked on her to see how she was doing after. So that makes it easy for her to feel like it was intentional.
But Contessa can’t get past the fact that Toya called Scott a liar. So she warns Toya not to do it again.
When Toya once again calls Scott a liar, Contessa threatens to choke Toya out.
Toya then gets up to walk over to Contessa to dare her to do something. Quad and the others separate them.
“Come on, b*tch!” – Toya
Quad tries to calm Toya down and tells her that God wouldn’t want her to behave that way.
Contessa then tells Toya she’s not scared of her and she better watch her mouth. But she’s not willing to lose her medical license over this drama.
“Do you think you’re scary? I squash people like you for fun…and you better watch your words. Don’t talk about my husband.” – Contessa
Jackie tries to calm everything down as they get closer to the winery.
When they get there, they head to the bar to get some wine. Both Toya and Contessa are still a little testy.
Contessa throws another dig.
They grab a table outside and enjoy the views.
Still feeling some kind of way about everything, Contessa says she needs to be real about something.
“I want to defend something. And one of the things that I like to defend is if we’re now talking about husbands being liars and all that kind of stuff, one thing I haven’t said, you always talking about your husband’s weight. And how he needs to lose weight. And that he needs to be healthier but to me, you guys are in the same exact place. You and him have the same BMI.” – Contessa
The group is shocked Contessa went there.
Simone feels Contessa is being messy and she needs to be quiet.
Quad then steps in and says that Toya didn’t hit Contessa in the boob on purpose. And Quad says that Contessa needs to be fair because she’s been wrong about the situation. She once again stresses that Toya isn’t that kind of person.
The women grab some food and see more of the scenery.
Mariah gets a scary update from Aydin.
Aydin calls Mariah and tells her his headache has gotten worse. So he’s going to the ER.
“This is not good.” – Mariah
He’s going to call her as soon as he gets an update from the doctors.
As the other women take on the views, Simone tells Jackie about her latest blowup with Cecil.
Jackie says that Simone shouldn’t project her feelings onto Cecil but Cecil may need some “special classes” if he can’t understand where Simone is coming from.
Aydin calls Mariah again and she starts crying in the restroom.
He tells her he has Viral Meningitis. This is inflammation of the brain and spinal cord membranes.
This is serious and all the women decide to leave the winery so they can all be by Aydin’s side.
