Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, Ep. 6 Recap: Oh How Things Change

Lil’ Fizz (Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images)

 

While recapping episode 3 a few weeks ago, I said the following things regarding Lil’ Fizz:

He has all the sense it seems and has suggestions and solutions. 

 Either way, never in a thousand years did I think I’d utter the words, “you know what, I kind of fuck with this nigga Lil Fizz.”

Lies, yo. All lies.

I absolutely do not fuck with Lil’ Fizz anymore. Not even in a I think he’s a bad person way, just in a, what in Sam Hill is wrong with you way, b? NOW I totally get why Amanda is so skittish when it comes to the young B2Keynsian. Moniece may not be a great mother by any stretch (at least according to Fizz; I swear her Instagram indicates that she’s got their son Cameron like, everyday, maybe she’s upping old pictures and photoshopping them or something like the gubernatorial candidate from Pennsylvania’s campaign photos), but Fizz is starting to show some kinks in the armor on his end.

My man is pressed to get Amanda to play mommy. I don’t know if this nigga just needs a nanny and she’s cheaper than paying for one or he is just SUPER ready to settle down and she’s the one he’s with so he’s like, “you have a momma right? Yeah, do that for my son that doesn’t belong to you.” Never ever in my long legged life have I ever never ever seen a man SO pressed to get his son a new mommy. ESPECIALLY via a chick who has cheated on him before. Fizz and Omarion meet up to shoot the shit with shots and Fizz confides in Omarion that Amanda cheated which leads Omarion down the rational mantalk of, “so why do you trust this woman exactly to be mommy, et al.?”

While I know most of us watching were all in Camp Fizz because of his responsible nature when it comes to taking care of his son, my man is the polar opposite when it comes to handling things in his personal life. Like I said before, everyday with Fizz is like Opposite Day. We see what it looks like when a man puts the full court press on a woman who ain’t quite ready to be there and is REASONABLY like, “naw, bitch I said naw”…except she also cheated on him. And because Mona Scott-Young is the devil, she set up a dinner reservation in Miami for Amanda. But here’s that shit I don’t like…and maybe y’all can help me out here.

How many people in relationships listen to your voicemails…OUTLOUD with your boo? My guess is very few. Shit I leave my phone on vibrate and I don’t even have a boo. Ain’t no way in hell I’m gon’ listen to a voicemail outloud when I know I’ve fucked up before. First rule of being a better criminal, learn from your mistakes and improve on your fuckery. That shit was such a staged setup. You gon’ listen to a voicemail out loud that ends up being a message about a dinner reservation IN MIAMI that night, which is the home of the nigga you stepped out on Fizz with? Shit…she ain’t check the caller ID? I doubt a restaurant is blocking their number. I’m calling shenanigans.

Dumb shit yo. Also, Amanda got an apartment IN HER NAME for another dude to stay at when he was in town so he could smash those pumpkins? Fizz?

You an idiot, b. Plain and simple.

Moving on to other idiots, we have the fun and fancy free story of T Murda (Teairra Mari) and her non-existent music career. Word to the wise to all you up and coming artists out there: if you ever utter the words, “I think working with Yung Berg will give my career the push that I need” you have already lost before you started. Your career is officially somebody that you used to know.

So we have TMurda showing up to meet a chick named Miss Diddy and the nigga I love to hate, Sincere. Sincere reminds me of some promoters I know; extremely self-important with this belief that at any and all times, he’s doing you a favor. Now, in this case, he is doing TMurda a favor, but he goes overboard in letting her know how much he’s putting his neck on the line for her, which we call what? Class? Bueller?

Foreshadowing.

Though Sincere does drop the line of all lines when speaking about why he’s doing this: “I got a soft spot for Teairra Mari. She got the titties and she got the eyes.”

Can’t say I don’t see his point. Sweater puppies do something to you…and in this case that something is make a bad decision. I’m sure Sincere is the man; I’m also sure that I hate this nigga.

Anyway, despite what I wrote about Teairra Mari and the career she should have had, she gets up on stage and sounds like how I envision a live performance by Ameriie would sound. You know, a lot of straining and looks of confusion as to why this was her chosen path when she coulda been a pilot, could have been a doctor, could have been a pimp or could have been a mobster. She could have been a mack, she could have been a dope boy. Homey, matter of fact? She could have been a motherfucking coke boy. But alas she’s a singer and she sang like her life depended on it. Shortest life ever, yo.

Teairra Mari, trying to keep shit on the up and up, puts it all in perspective like, “yeah, that wasn’t very good, but this is just the beginning and it gives me a chance to work out kinks and get my sea legs back.” That’s reasonable. EXCEPT you did it on the name of dude whose sole reason for being on the show is to be extra and tell her why she ain’t shit and that she’s fat and did a terrible job. Look, I know she did a terrible job. She knows she did a terrible job. She’s quick to anger, but in spurts, she does have common sense. But Sincere keeps poking the bear. Here’s another thing; constructive criticism, while hard to swallow, is usually received at least okay if it sounds genuine. The first time Sincere gave her criticisim she took it like a champ even though she clearly felt some type of way. This time, he just went in, somehow thinking he had the authority to be as much of a douche as possible. What happens next?

Survey Says: Teairra Mari attempts to put them paws on him. That could be the name of this show and it wouldn’t change shit about the storylines. Speaking of paws, only not at all, Morgan who is frustrated with Ray decides to take on a new gig at the bequest of Yesi, who is trying to be like, “Ladies First” and “Fly Like An Eagle” to Morgan. Morgan seems to be the Bad Decision Maven as well. Her and Fizz should date.

Anyway, they have this big Powerhouse event coming up and Ray is hosting, and niggas who are somebodies have assistants and she bails on him. While Ray generally peeves me, I kind of agree with him here. It ALSO sounds like she ain’t tell him ahead of time or at least didn’t tell him til she got there. Yesi tries to jump in and say, “don’t be mad at Morgan” be mad at me. Ray is like, “I DONT FUCK WITH YOU” (wait, that’s next episode), hmm…he actually goes in to “FDB” mode and tells Morgan that if she wants to spread her wings, then go spread her wings, but professionally speaking she’s dropping the ball (she is) and doesn’t have to assist him with shit ever again. She gets fired. Assisstants have to be a dime a dozen in LA, right? Of course, because Ray J didn’t earn his Ray J Da Gawd status by being Zeus’s son, the next episode he spazzes out on Yesi which is apparently where he caught that charge from back in May. My man Ray never lets me down.

But yeah, Morgan is never too far from a bad decision she doesn’t like.

Lastly, and least importantly, Nikki and Masika talk again because Nikki feels like women don’t lie on their p*ssy and wants to know if Mally is lying to her (duh). Masika is going to be the face of some clubs I’ll never go to and is in the middle of a photoshoot where she’s sitting in rhinestones (though she refers to them as diamonds, Nikki got that right) when Nikki shows up and asks what they did. Nikki realizes that Masika wasn’t lying when she mentions that Mally was pulling her hair – which is apparently his signature move in the sack. She and her mother then confront him, catch him in a lie and he does the only thing a man can do in a situation where there is literally no win: walks the fuck out. You lost. No salvaging the situation. Walk off into the sunset. Nikki throws flowers out of her front door. The symbolism. The metaphor. Not really. This is LHH. There is no symbolism.

Next week: Teddy Riley shows up. THE RETURN OF YUNG BERG. More shit happens.

  • Neptunes presents The Clones

    What does lie on p*ssy mean..

    • Sigma_Since 93

      Sahel’s got an avi…should have been Roadblock though.

      • Neptunes presents The Clones

        Dammit Sigma,this is my halloween costume. And how the heck is this comment getting upvotes

        • Sigma_Since 93

          Sahel you can use the costume I used at the office party last year. I’ll be equally impressed if you win the costume contest……wait do they have Halloween contests when your on “location”?

          • Neptunes presents The Clones

            You know what,if VSB was not full of recluse people like Val i would challenge everyone to post a pic of themselves in costume on 31st just so that you can eat it

            • Sigma_Since 93

              Why don’t you start with simply posting a pic of yourself? I know Agatha would approve of that notion.

              • Neptunes presents The Clones

                Guilame has a husband i think,and who would want to see a pic of me anyway.

                • Sigma_Since 93

                  It doesn’t negate the fact she called you out and you didn’t rise to the occasion.

    • panamajackson

      Nikki feels that women wouldn’t lie on having slept with a guy they didn’t.

      • Neptunes presents The Clones

        Oh,man. Women do that,lol.

        • God Shammgod

          Women are more likely to do the reverse on the whole. Not count someone that they absolutely did go to the mountaintop with.

          International waters don’t count.

          • Neptunes presents The Clones

            Sigh,and i’m all about international waters. But this is something i did not know women do. I know women tend to subtract but to totally redact,have you ever done this

            • God Shammgod

              I’ve never counted so I wouldn’t necessarily actively subtract or add. Never saw the point.

              • Neptunes presents The Clones

                Noted

          • Didn’t Chris Rock talk about a two D curve? LOL

            • LadyIbaka

              like a deek is curved twice. isn’t that a sick one?!!

              • Think curve as in grade, not curve as in the physical feature. For example, pace Chris Rock, if a woman claims to have had 10 Ds, she’s really had 12 because of the two you know she’s probably not telling you about.

                • LadyIbaka

                  Lord. Thanks Todd.

          • Courtney

            I heard international waters don’t count, if he hit less than 3 times, and college is completely nonexistent if it wasn’t your main.

  • I’m going to come to the partial defense of my fellow single dad with custody Lil Fizz. I’m not saying what he’s doing is the right thing, but I definitely understand where he’s coming from with this.

    In all fairness, Lil Fizz has some money and a bit of celebrity that probably greases the skids a bit. Still, I can imagine that he has to fight to get a lot of stuff done. I can’t say it’s one thing, because no one thing is so horrible that it can’t be dealt with alone. However, as things compound, there’s a real tendency to say screw it and get with the first woman that seems responsible. I don’t agree with it, but after the 85th straight situation with your child of “if I had a chick here, this would go much smoother”, I can see why he’d go left with his choices.

    Then there’s a lot of pressure to get a woman in a child’s life, from family, friends and strangers. I could pay for after school if I had a dollar for every time it’s brought up. They seem to want someone to take that mommy role for a young child, and since Amanda seems willing to do some things, I can see why he’s taking a chance. It’s dumb, but I definitely feel his thought process.

    And it’s why I’m deadly scared of commitment right now. The relationship stuff doesn’t scare me as much as the idea of me effectively having to hand off care of my daughter to some woman. On top of it if I do feel nervous, they’ll be a lot of peer pressure to stay the course. Yikes..

    • Neptunes presents The Clones

      A girl needs a woman to teach her woman things i suppose. But take it at you’re own speed because the last woman you were with was utter jizz.

      • Word. I could have just handed my child over to a bad mother she already knew instead of some new fool. LOL

    • panamajackson

      I ain’t saying I don’t get why he’s being so pressed, but at the same time, he is being super pressed and making it uncomfortable for her. Every convo about love with him ends up being about his kid. She’s 25. She’s likely doing too much as it is b/c he’s trying to find a replacement for Moniece. And that’s a recipe for disaster no matter who is involved.

      • I agree. Just reading of that has me thinking of ghosts of Christmas future. It also explains why the few single dads I see out there are either celibate or on some hard D and bubblegum status with women. There’s a lot more to potentially go wrong, and a lot of those issues are very single dad specific.

      • Wild Cougar

        He sounds like he’s trying to hire a nanny and use his past celebrity as payment

    • PunchDrunkLove

      LIl Fizz heart is in the right place, he’s having trouble executing though. He’s gonna run her off if he keeps pressing her to marry/move in. Rehashing the past is just ineffective. He should let it go if they’ve decided to move on and pursue something.

      I think her infidelity is messing with his head and he’s spazzing out.

      • panamajackson

        That’s why Mona Scott-Young is a bad person. You know she made that reservation in Miami and sent the message to stir the pot! Just evil!

        • PunchDrunkLove

          As my daddy would say, she ain’t right, riding or walking.

      • I agree. Either you have to forgive someone.. Or you don’t. Half stepping is helping no one at this point.

        • Wild Cougar

          To me it sounds like he’s trying to guilt her into moving in with that. Like she needs to pay to gain his trust. But that’s not good leverage when she’s not really that interested.

    • Meridian

      25 isn’t a child. Yeah that’s pretty young still and there’s still room to be uncertain and slow to commit, but 25 is old enough to recognize a good dude. She knows what he needs from a woman and she knows if she’s capable of that. Him pressing her comes off to me as him wanting her to behave in a serious capacity if she’s in this with him or to be all out completely if she isn’t. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. Either you’re in or you’re out. He trusts her with his child so either you take that role seriously or you don’t. I don’t think he’s wrong to press her on it for the sake of getting clarity. The fact that a person is unavailable to you in a serious capacity but still does enough to foster an emotional connection is questionable. That’s a questionable behavior to have and you really just want it explained to you. Seems like he got his answer with that voicemail.

      • Neptunes presents The Clones

        26 is old. Man,by 23 you have to know what you want and how to butter your bread

        • Meridian

          It really is. It’s an age where you’re old enough to be decisive about what you’re doing and be dedicated to making it happen. She ain’t a baby. She’s old enough that these responsibilities are completely reasonable.

      • I see where you’re coming from. At some point, you have to believe what people do, not what they present themselves as. Once you know the scoop, it’s up to each person to act accordingly. As sloppy as Amanda might be, at some point, you’re not a victim but a volunteer.

        • Meridian

          Exactly. She knows the situation. Either she wants the role or she doesn’t but half in, half out doesn’t work. That’s just plain ole avoidance and emotional manipulation.

  • God Shammgod

    So many questions, where do I start….

    1) I may be telling on myself here…but is hair pulling an altogether unique thing? Like, thats part of an average bag of tricks, is it not?

    2) How can you be a celebrity correspondent when you’re not a…celebrity…#thingsthatmakeoyugohmm

    3) The rhinestones in the tub in that empty azz studio had me crying laughing. I didn’t even know they made costume jewelry that big. Also, i figured out what bugs me about massika’s face. Her top lip doesnt move along with her bottom lip. It has about as much range as Teairras vocals.

    4)….cat ears though? The trick had CAT EARS. Fa whet?

    5) What we have formerly assumed to be reasonable Fizz may have actually just been stupidity. Fizz is fixing to really believe that a 25 year old mexican from Cali never heard of B2K? N*gga GOODBYE. That “im unimpressed by celebrity move” is my entire plan for trapping Jesse Williams if I ever have the glory of running into the lightskint gawd. (and/or Jason Momoa because YASSSS)

    6) Did Fizz say that she had a part time job and takes classes at like Everest college? How’d she put money down on an apartment for the side n*gga? (Which by the way…its sounding more and more like Fizz is really the side n*gga and Miami dude is the main but EYE am sleep). B*** you guessed it….she gotta be using Fizz’s “You Got Served” royalty checks.

    7) I’m still waiting for J-Boog to show up on the scene, screame “we gotta do this for lil saint” and for b2k to immediately hop into a choreographed routine from You Got Served. Mona needs to give the streets what they want.

    • Neptunes presents The Clones

      Hair pulling is an art form.

      • LadyIbaka

        i hope that is sarcasm, because it is not, has never been, will never be.

    • panamajackson

      1. I thought that was an interesting “tell” as well. Like, THAT was the thing that let you know she wasn’t lying????

      2. I think Ray J was being…generous with his title for her. See, he loves her.

      3. Masika still hasn’t won me over.

      4. I got noghint.

      5. I’m gonna run this game on Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Say I thought it was Kerry Washington in Beyond The Lights and Belle.

      6. If she takes classes at Everest, I will now f*ck with her hardbody cuz she has turned that lack of career into a thing.

      7. I’m waiting for J-Boog too. He was my favorite K.

      • Gugu is so bad. Had me watching that horrid show with her, Major Dad, and Boris.

        • panamajackson

          Wait til you see her in Beyond The Lights. I love her long time.

          • Tx10inch

            She’s in that Tom Hanks movie where he goes to community college too. Thats where I found her and immediately violated Google images. Dude, she’s beautiful…

            • panamajackson

              Yo, that’s right! She was Talia. I knew she looked mad familiar. I loved her in that movie too. She makes me happy. She is absolutely beautiful.

          • SororSalsa

            She was very good in Belle.

        • Sigma_Since 93

          I put the volume on mute and just watched her.

          • Nah, she talks pretty too. I originally intended to watch Sleepy Hollow on mute because of the Beharie but it turned out to be a good show. I also watched some of the Beyonce concert on HBO on mute.

            • MrsT

              Sleepy Hallow is awesome.

            • SororSalsa

              Is that what I should’ve done? I’m gonna DVR On the Run tonight.

    • camilleblu

      #1 doe…nuff said
      #2 – morgan was dead wrong for not telling (asking?) the gawd ahead of time
      #3 – i didn’t understand how nikki could NOT know masika was going to be *the face* of the clubs if she is supposedly running the clubs for her parents.
      #4 – terriblemari looked a HOT mess in that #alphet – her azz looked flat as a pancake and those cat ears were just…troubling
      #6 – i too wondered how she put an apartment in her name for a dude based off of a part time gig and class once a week. musta been section 8.
      #6a – i also wondered how she was gonna get from LA to MIAMI in time for dinner that night (or the next night) without fizzle knowing – or was that gon be another one of her *disappearing acts* – no terry mcmillan

    • Meridian

      Even though it’s already been established that Jesse Williams is the father of my children, I think you can crush on him while I upgrade to Momoa.

    • Tonja (aka Cheeks)

      I also was calling BS on that hair-pulling “tell.” Not that I’d know any of that, but I HEAR it ain’t all that rare. The hair is there. Bars.

    • This list is everything. Ashe

    • Melissa

      I feel like “Average Bag Of Tricks” was the working title for the series.

    • That do got me thinking. What kind of hair pulling is this ninja doing where they both IMMEDIATELY knew what the other was referring to?

      • BreezyX2

        Right?!? Did you see how her facial composure changed when she said it? It was like she AWAKENED.

        • IcePrincess

          BOL!!!!

    • LadyIbaka

      Yaaaaaaaaaaz @your avi. #killinemsoftlywiththosethighssingingasongwithyourabs

  • MrsT

    I disagree about Ray J and Morgan. Ray J is not so big a celebrity that he can’t get himself a drink of water when he’s thirsty. And Yesi told him there were other people at the event who would help him distribute his merch so why was Morgan the only person that could? He was being a childish hater. If he really cared about Morgan and saw her as family he wouldn’t expect that she would work for him forever, eventually he would want to see her move on to bigger, better things. Instead, he just wants to control her (where she goes and who she’s with) and somehow thinks giving her a paycheck gives him license to do so.

    As for Little Fizz, I think the wrongly believes that if he turns Amanda in to a STAM she will be more loyal to him since his son is involved. But people do what they do and he may just end up hurting his son in the long run because Amanda clearly is NOT ready. Maybe he should date Omarion’s mom since she clearly has mother-son attachment issues.

    • God Shammgod

      Ray Js done plenty of foul things, but you don’t just not show up to your job as expected and bank on your boss being cool with it because your homies. Thats highly unprofessional and like it or not, shes the employee. She didn’t even let him know that she wasn’t gonna be available. That’s on her.

      • MrsT

        Yes, she should have told him in advance. But my guess is his reaction would have been the exact same.

        • panamajackson

          And that doesn’t matter. She messed up. Not him.

    • panamajackson

      I disagree about your disagreeance about Ray J. Who cares if there are other assistants there. She’s his assistant. If he’s paying her, then she’s got a job to do. Also, again, it seems like nobody alerted him until the day of the event that she’d be doing something else. Where is that okay?

      Even if he sees Morgan as family, its still a professional relationship. Why he shouldnt be telling her who to be friends with (that’s asinine), if she wants to bail, then she can bail. Even if Ray wanted to see her move onto bigger and better things, you can’t do it on his dime. Which I feel is his point. It’s unprofessional. You want to do something else, cool. Be free…which is what he said. I fail to see how he’s in the wrong here (yet). Its Ray, he will be in the wrong soon…looks like next episode.

      • Courtney

        Well I definitely don’t think she was expecting to get paid for the day from him….but side bar is anyone else getting the feeling they may have smashed on occasion? You know the type of smashing like we are good enough friends to smash and not have to talk about it ever again but it still has affected the way we interact with each other on certain levels? Mainly Ray J because he has this sense of entitlement that comes of as less bratty but more possessive when it comes to Morgan?

        • January Jones

          I wondered the same. I see no one had mentioned.

        • Wild Cougar

          mmmmhmmm RayJ is way too possessive

    • PunchDrunkLove

      I was thinking the same….you thirsty? Get it yaself. He’s gotta blow up some more to feel entitled. I mean if Ray was “bigger”, then maybe she wouldn’t need that extra exposure. He’s not big enough in the business to be making dern demands…lol He should keep a six pack of bottled water if he’s thirsty.

      • panamajackson

        Naw yo. She was ALREADY gon’ be there working. How you gon’ change your job. Point blank, she’s his assistant. I don’t give a good gotdamn if it’s me, Panama Dontavious Jackson, on stage. If I pay you to assist me, you better pretend like I’m the pope when I get off stage and have my water or your f*cking fired. She took the job. She failed. How big or not isnt important. She has a job to do and she ain’t do it.

        He should keep a six pack of bottled water if he’s thirsty. And she should hold it.

        • PunchDrunkLove

          If she could have handed him his bottled water and they both walked the carpet, getting a bit of exposure why not? I’m all for loyalty, but I’m also about give. Everybody is trying to come up….at least that’s how I see it.

          She could have had a better plan to make sure he was good and then did her thing.

        • PunchDrunkLove

          And walked the carpet after she twisted off his cap.
          He should have established from the beginning the nature of their work relationship. If he goes in with blurred lines, then messy and misunderstandings will result. He can’t be the man on Monday, big bro on Tuesday, the friend of a friend of his ex boo on Wednesday, back to boss on Thursday and cause he didn’t get his water, back to boss on Friday. He’s invited Teairra May to an event where she’s clowned and then turns around and tells her she can’t have lunch? That’s the other thing where he’s mistaken…..if I heard right he told her that she can’t be friends with who he’s not friends with. Seems like he’s making stuff up as they go.

          Establish boundaries and what it’s gon be, and then he’s got every leg to stand on when making demands. Clearly, even if in the wrong, she didn’t “get” where she failed him. That’s his fault for not making it crystal clear.

          • MrsT

            THIS!!! This is my entire problem with Ray, he can’t be mad at Morgan for his own messiness and expect her to be professional when he never was.

            • PunchDrunkLove

              My current job wants to know if you have a side gig….that’s required. For me that’s fair….and fine with me. They only require that what you do on your personal time don’t interfere with your first obligation.

              This would be the normal expectation with any manager I assume. Just because I work for you don’t me I should be beholden to you and your every move and moodswings, have to have the same set of friends (or I’m fired), can’t interact with your ex boo (or I’m fired), can’t get a little shine for myself (or I’m fired).

              And given he’s like a brother to her, all the more reason to walk beside him getting a lil shine in for herself….while keeping the water cooler stacked….lololol

            • panamajackson

              Y’all are making a lot of assumptions about their relationship. Look, at the end of the day, she is his employee. I don’t give a damn what he refers to her as. She’s an employee. He pays her. And clearly well since she’s stuck around for 9 years. If Diddy fired his assistant you’d be like…yeah, makes sense. Because Diddy is respected as business. But I’m saying, your employee keeps messing up? She wants to do her thing? Cool. Poof be gone. That’s what he told her. She’s upset that he fired her as “his friend” but the truth is, that’s a dumb reason to be mad you lost a job.Don’t f*ck up, don’t lose your job.

          • Meridian

            Also, you’ve gotta love how Ray insisted Teirra go to his launch party and he blamed Morgan when it went south…even thought she fought him every step of the way to not invite her. Now that she’s following his lead on being cordial it’s a problem for him. Ray J just wants Morgan to follow him around and support his every whim. That’s what he wants from her. An unconditional assistant to him no matter which way he blows in the wind. That’s what he pays her for. If she can’t do that than the professional relationship should end.

            • PunchDrunkLove

              Exactly, all of this. No one is saying she doesn’t have an obligation, but he should learn how to lead and void of emotions, and NOT play the blame game when stuff goes left.

          • O,o

            She failed him by not knowing what an assistant does which is make his brand look good by doing her job. She also failed herself.

            Waaay back in the 1900’s when I got my first job as a mere sales associate at the rainbow chain “5.7.9” I was advised not to ‘make friends’ with “Wet Seal” (by not shopping there) across the way because they are the competition and mall shoppers seeing a “5.7.9” rep shopping there would draw away business from Rainbow’s stores to Wet Seal. That makes plenty of business sense to me. T (his ex) is bad biz for him. if they (Morgan and Teairra) were gon’ be frenz, they should’ve been incognegro and not upset dude that signs the check…even if we all hate him.

          While Ray is clearly a primadonna…what I don’t understand is how y’all gon’ be mad at Ray for expecting his employee to do her job?

          • MrsT

            I think the problem is Ray J set up the situation for Morgan to fail from jump and she didn’t know any better. My guess is the lines between family and work relationship were blurred long ago so Morgan can’t see it as anything other than “that’s just my brother I work for.” He knows that is her perspective so now he can’t be all salty about the situation that he created in the first place.

            • panamajackson

              I feel like I’m watchign a different show than y’all. He can’t expect her to be professional and do her job? B/c he called her like family??

          • Melissa

            Ahhhh, so true! I got my start as an assistant and I would have been the most fired-est person in history if I took it upon myself to believe I can fly in the middle of a big event! That’s The Power Of Ray J – even when he’s right, he’s still a mess. And I love him for it :)

      • Meridian

        Ray J wanted her for petty tasks someone else could have handled for him had she given him the proper notice. Handing out merchandise and fetching him a pail of water is something anyone could have done. He didn’t need her for that and she was right to pass on that to get her feet wet. She could’ve handled it more professionally though. She’s dead wrong for skipping out on him in the professional sense without even so much as a notice to the point he was inconvenienced. From his perspective, she’s been way too comfortable lately and the job she does professionally is affected because of it. I think he was right to fire her. I also think he should be happy for her on a personal level and not hold any grudges. It doesn’t have to be sour.

        • panamajackson

          He told her that if she wants to spread her wings then so be it. Go spread your wings. And that’s just what was said on the show. Who knows what else he needed her for. BUT…it doesnt matter…she signedup for it and has been doing it for 9 years. She clearly liked the job.

          • IcePrincess

            She tried it when he asked her “aren’t you my assistant?” And she shot back “idk am I?” That’s when he dropped the hammer on that azz. He goes, “well if you don’t kno, then you ain’t!” She set herself up for it perfectly. She so smart, she dumb.

            • Meridian

              She wanted him to say she could keep her job while she found her way but he was set on making her professional life 100% about him. She was fishing for a compromise and he fired her. That sucks.

            • panamajackson

              Right…Ray J was like “B*TCH YOU GUESSED IT!! You were right.”

              Game. Blouses.

              • Meridian

                lmao!

        • PunchDrunkLove

          Exactly….petty tasks. He’s right for wanting her to do her job, the job he’s paying her to do. On the flip side, he’s small in his thinking, overly emotional and petty. You’re on national tv whining you didn’t have someone to hand you your water when you ain’t big or got it like that. The smaller her tasks, the bigger he looks, huh?

          Someone said upthread that leaders breed leaders…I totally agree. They’re big in their thinking. Rather than seeing there’s enough shine to go around for all, he’s whining she wasn’t at his beckon call. He’s gotta master the ground work first, take his emotions out of it, quit doing school girl stuff of your enemies are my enemies, so forth and so on. I wish somebody would tell me who I can be friends with versus not, cause I’m on their payroll. And this is where SHE’S silly and have tolerated less than professional demands.

          Seems to me they’re both are misguided in how professional relationships work. What should versus shouldn’t be tolerated. Seems nothing professional was never established. Please miss me with making demands as we go along. Also, I’m wondering how much he’s paying her. Nine years?

          • Meridian

            He can survive her not being there to do the trivial parts of being an assistant. Some of that stuff is small enough that he could rotate someone else in while she does other things. Basically, there are petty and substantial things an assistant does. He should let her drop doing petty things for him so that she can do major things for herself. That would’ve allowed them to still have a professional relationship.

  • camilleblu

    pj – i felt bad for fizz. i almost wonder if he’s trying to make it work so hard with amanda bc he wants to save face in front of moniece. like, maybe he doesn’t want moniece to be able to say *see, your girl ain’t shyt either*. i just can’t think of what else it could be, bc he’s putting WAY too much pressure on that girl. i bet he cringes as he watches the weekly playback.

    • While that’s possible, Fizz doesn’t come off that petty. I did mention some reasons in a Katherine comment on here though.

      • camilleblu

        i don’t know if i would call it being petty. it seems like more of a side effect of the dysfunction between him and moniece.

        • I’m not saying it can’t be true as much as I’d have to look at Lil Fizz and Monieces dynamic without the child involved.

    • panamajackson

      I don’t feel bad for him. I just feel like he’s wookin’ por wub in all da wong pwaces.

      • Wild Cougar

    • Melissa

      Is it mean that I laughed when he said that he knew she loved him for him because…she didn’t know about B2K? Ummmmmm, by my calculations, she was 23 when they started dating. I’m 33 and the only one I remember is Omarion.

      I feel like Moniece just high-fived me.

      • panamajackson

        Like Shamwow said upthread, I find it hard to believe she had never heard of B2K. Real hard. She was like 12 when they dropped. That was their demo…she’s from Cali but they missed her??

        • Melissa

          E-e-e-e-e-e-exactly! My main Point Of Confusion in all of this is how he thinks the math all adds up to Stepmom Of The Year. Also, I think we can all agree as adults that if you think of any part of your current relationship as karmic retribution for past whoring around, it’s not…a positive sign.

        lol…

  • PunchDrunkLove

    “………and is in the middle of a photoshoot where she’s sitting in rhinestones (though she refers to them as diamonds”

    Okay, I had to laugh at this…out loud. I’m still laughing. Wheeew, anyhoo, I agree pretty much with your assessment. I agree about Lil Fizz. Putting pressure to take the mommy position ain’t cool. Put it out there, let her marinate on it. In the interim, be the best single dad you can be. I’m usually one that’s not against marrying young if your head is right, but everytime I look at him, he looks about 14ish to me and looks too young to be tryna handcuff his girl. IJS

    Teairra May, Lawd what’s wrong? That performance was awful. Don’t folks rehearse even if it’s with a live band? But yeah, Sincere went for the jugular, and for no reason. Tell her she didn’t sound that great, need to polish up her voice as well as her image. Seems like he was itching to take it there, just needed a reason. As typical, she stepped right into it. She tried, but a few jabs and there she goes….paws and all. That had to cut deep. I think for the sake of not giving him the reaction he wanted she should have walked away. Saved that for another time. Again, she tried.

    That whole Mally Mal and Kim K wanna be thing is just dumb or bad acting. She thought about how dumb she looked defending this dude and backpedaled to save face. You can’t believe he cheated on you? Yeah you can. You already knew.

    Any man that will adamantly hold to “we did everything but the act”, slept in the same bed, she only did me, blah blah blah is a liar. I can respect you more if you blamed it on the breakup.

  • Tonja (aka Cheeks)

    WHY wasn’t there a rehearsal or at LEAST a sound check for Tesofudodiora? Oh, because contrived. Carry on.

    • panamajackson

      Right. No way a soundcheck doesn’t happen ahead of time. No. Way.

    • Meridian

      Teirra doesn’t take her craft seriously at all. While I can appreciate her working out her rustiness on stage, she could’ve prepared better. Physically attacking someone for pointing out legitimate faults when their reputation on the line is most of the reason she won’t amount to anything. She wasn’t good. She didn’t take the time to get good. She didn’t wanna hear that pointed out. He wasn’t wrong to say what he said but he could’ve had a more supportive tone in getting her on the right track.

  • writelaughdream

    Yes I was dead. I think that a man that is trying that hard to find a mom for his son would scare anyone. It definitely should be a natural progression and not at all something that feels forced, because it will end up bad for the relationship and the child.

    On the Teairra thing … Sincere definitely acted like many people I know in the business. LOL. So overly important, I couldn’t stop laughing with his glasses and half buttoned shirt. In either case there is nothing wrong with constructive criticism, but he didn’t have to try to tear her down like that. period. But again, we are watching over the top TV so that’s the way it’s going to go down.

    Ray -J. HAHAHA. I just have to laugh at him all the time. He is so fake busy and important. lol. But at the end of the day, an assistant is an assistant. It’s still an employer that doesn’t care about anything but the job getting done. Can’t really be mad at that. I can’t go to work, telling my boss he should care about my real goals and dreams.

    • MrsT

      True, anybody’s regular boss does not give two dambs about your goals and dreams, but somebody who says you’re “like family” to them should. I think that is the point Morgan was trying to make with Ray J in the last episode, but he really only cares about himself, so he wasn’t trying to hear her.

      • writelaughdream

        You have a point there. But maybe that’s part of the problem. You can’t treat someone like family and an employee because the business is always going to come first.

        • panamajackson

          Ray stays making that line clear though. That’s what he said on the last episode. Business wise, I need xyz. He’s been clear.

          • writelaughdream

            Yeah I mean he has been shading her since the beginning of the show. LOL. But it seems like at a certain point he kind of considered her a friend. And a boss wouldn’t tell you that you can’t talk to someone cause they don’t like them. That is blurring the line a bit. But I agree, at the end of the day a job is a job.

      • panamajackson

        Then she should have bounced at that point. Not just sucked it up and tried to force his hand. That is, as Ray kept pointing out, unprofessional. That’s why one of the crack commandments is keep your family and business completely separated. Money and blood don’t mix like two d*cks and no b*tch, find yourself in serious sh*t.

        Ray understands that. She’s thinking, “he’s just my brother that i work for.” Noap.

      • Amber

        I’ve always hated when employers or coworkers throw around “family” because itmakes no sense to the nature of the relationship. People use the family term when they want to get over because otherwise this is business and ray j is doing Morgan a favor because he lacks leadership qualities. He’s just a bad boss. But I just like things separated when it comes to these types of things. You are either a friend or employee. I remember on another reality show when TI was giving Tiny advice about Shekinah he said that friends don’t need a check so you can either be a friend for free or an employee but those are different roles.

        • panamajackson

          Look at TI droppin’ heatrocks of knowledge. IF only he’d drop a hot album. But I’m sleep.

        • Mrs T

          YES! Ray J is a bad boss and his lack of leadership created Morgan’s lack of professionalism. The role of a leader is to create more leaders, not followers. Ray J wants a follower and nothing more.

    • LOLOLOL. “Fake busy” is perfect. Anybody been on rayj.com that website he launched in the first episode??? *crickets*
