Egypt’s performance garners praise.
The season finale begins with Egypt taking the stage at JoJo’s showcase. Her performance is conspicuously mirrored by Sam in the background which annoys Da Brat. However, Uncle Luke was impressed. Overall, the crowd enjoyed this solo performance.
For the last performance, Briana’s video was played which also impressed the judges.
Finally, it’s time for the judges to deliberate and make the decision. They couldn’t agree on just one. So they picked a tie between Jaq, Fooly, and Egypt. All three won interviews on the Trick and Trina Morning Show.
Sakoya and Tanice clash.
After the showcase, a confrontation occurs. Sakoya approaches Tanice regarding her comments about Sakoya’s mom that she took as shade. Tanice gets heated and has to be pulled away by JoJo and others. What really riled her up was the fact that Sakoya looked like she thought about throwing a drink Tanice’s way. This ruined the vibe of the showcase and of course, Da Brat was ready to go.
Meanwhile, Maureen’s in Las Vegas with Shawn and Tee Tee. All of them run down their game plans for their prospective family talks. Shawn’s going to talk to Sam while Maureen and Tee Tee meet with Egypt and Pepa. Maureen’s determined to keep the family together while Tee Tee isn’t as hopeful.
As they’re in Las Vegas, Cree visits Vanessa who’s in Miami for Angela’s photo shoot. Of course, Cree lets Vanessa know about Sakoya and Tanice’s confrontation. Plus, she mentions that Sakoya also has an issue with Angela because Angela dated her baby daddy in the past.
When Vanessa learns of this, she immediately says Sakoya can’t come around anymore. She’s also dreading the fact she’s going to be the one to tell Angela about the confrontation.
Egypt’s coached up by Pepa.
Pepa does her best to coach up Egypt and Sam on their way to they talk with Maureen and Tee Tee. They all agree not to get violent unless it’s unavoidable. First, we see Pepa and Egypt arrive at the suite and they see Maureen and Tee Tee are waiting on them. Things immediately get tense.
Back in New York, Tanice and JoJo are back home and Tanice feels stress-free. They tell to their daughter she’s getting a sister. Afterward, they talk about what happened at the showcase. Tanice tells JoJo Sakoya arrived looking for beef with Angela. And she wasn’t here for this.
Meanwhile, Tyran and Treach are waiting on Shawn and Sam. Treach’s at his wit’s end with all of this and wants everyone to squash it all.
Sam and Shawn reach an understanding.
It’s at this point Sam and Shawn arrive for the sit-down and Treach sets them all straight. Things get tense when Sam blames everything on Shawn which frustrates him. Before things go over the edge, Treach tries to set them both straight about the beef. As this talk goes on, Maureen and Pepa have small talk. Tee Tee wasn’t for this and loudly sets a timer for 60 minutes.
Next, Egypt brings up what Tee Tee said about Sam and his finances in previous seasons. Egypt’s adamant that all of that was lies and Sam isn’t with her for money and he respects her. Tee Tee says she didn’t lie about anything. This leads to Pepa being ready to lay out all of the “lies” Tee Tee said about Egypt and Sam.
Back in Miami, Angela’s having her calendar photoshoot and she shows her photographer her swimsuit. He’s impressed and sets up for a test shot. Angela, meanwhile, isn’t sure Vanessa will be willing to join in. When Vanessa arrives, she’s impressed with Angela’s look. Between shoots, Vanessa asks if this would be a calendar she would want their dad Rev Run to see. The question doesn’t phase Angela and she then lets Vanessa know she’s considering a breast augmentation.
Meanwhile, Vanessa decides she’s not going to bring up the altercation at JoJo’s showcase.
As the talk continues with Sam and Shawn, Treach sets them both straight, telling them all they have to be is cordial. Sam says he didn’t have anything to do with the rumor and how that rumor was spread between Tee Tee and Egypt. Shawn gets Sam to agree that they will not meddle in Egypt and Tee Tee’s drama. And if there’s an issue, they will call each other and not the women.
Egypt and Tee Tee clash.
As the guys seemingly got an understanding, Egypt and Tee Tee rehash things from past seasons. Surprisingly, Egypt says Tee Tee ruined her reputation on the show, saying she’s “going to be a queen one day.”
Things take a turn for the worse when Egypt says Tee Tee is jealous of her place as Pepa’s daughter. It’s at this point Maureen speaks up, saying it’s Egypt’s fault for her image, bringing up how she slugged Briana.
When Tee Tee brought up how she got mad when Egypt brought Dawn and Shawn into the drama, Egypt says, “If you can’t take being burned, don’t start the fire.”
At this point, Tee Tee gets up to leave, which angers Pepa and she calls Tee Tee disrespectful. They then exchange words shocking Maureen. Tee Tee, eventually, sits back down for the talk.
Next, Pepa says Tee Tee told her Shawn cheated on her back in 2018. Tee Tee denies this. Egypt, feeling like a victim, overtalks everyone saying Tee Tee betrayed her. Tee Tee says she never wanted to see her upset and apologizes for things she said in the past about Sam.
Eventually, they all come to an agreement that they can be cordial with one another. Tee Tee says she’s ready to move on. Sam, Shawn, and Tyran come up to the room and everyone is cordial. However, in her interview, Egypt says she can never trust Tee Tee again. Sam apologizes to everyone for any tension he caused and Maureen accepts on behalf of everyone. Tyran toasts to all of this. However, Tee Tee isn’t ready to grow closer with them, including inviting Egypt, Pepa, and Sam to the wedding.
