(From L to R: Monsè DeRosier, Jac Carter, Sheridan Campbell, Yvonne Langley, Marcie Maples, & Valentina Armani)

The episode begins with aerial shots of Downtown Beverly Beach.

The scene settles on Jac and Beau’s apartment building.

Beau is seen sitting on the couch playing with Annabelle as Jac walks into the room.

Jac & Annabelle

Jac: “What is going on over here little missy?”

Annabelle: “Daddy is being a horsey!”

Beau ‘neighs’ and then looks over at Jac.

Beau: “That’s right, mommy! I’m a horsey!”

Annabelle: “Daddy! Horsies don’t talk!”

Jac: “She got you there!” She bursts out laughing.

Jac’s Confessional

“These past few months have been really tough for Beau and I. We hadn’t really been connecting, we hadn’t been spending time together and we hadn’t been putting our marriage first but ever since we found out I’m pregnant…”

We get footage of Jac watching Beau and Annabelle together with a huge smile on her face.

Jac’s Confessional

“We’ve really re-committed to our marriage and our family. Ultimately, we’re crazy about each other. The love has always been there but we just weren’t nurturing it.”

Jac: “So baby, come sit on mommy’s lap.” She motions for Annabelle. “Daddy and I want to talk to you about something.”

Annabelle gets off Beau’s back and goes to Jac’s arms. Beau stands up and sits next to Jac so that they’re both looking at Annabelle.

Jac: “Peanut, do you know that mummy and daddy love you?”

Annabelle: “Yes.” She nods.

Beau: “And that will never change.”

Annabelle: “Never!” She giggles.

Jac: “That’s right baby. So how would you feel if you had a little brother or sister who also loves you and who you can love?”

Annabelle: “A brother or sister?”

Beau: “Yes, sweetie.” He nods. “A little baby.” He smiles.

Annabelle: “I would love a brother or sister!” She smiles.

Jac: “Well, daddy and I are going to get one for you.” She laughs.

Annabelle starts to jump up and down on Jac’s lap clapping her hands.

Annabelle: “YAY! YAY! YAY!”

Beau: “Be careful of mummy baby!” He laughs and picks Annabelle up off of Jac’s lap.

Jac’s Confessional

“Now that we’ve told Annabelle, this whole pregnancy is starting to feel a lot more real. It’s crazy for me to think that in 5 months, I’m going to be bringing home a little baby!”

Jac reaches over and gives Beau a kiss and lays on his shoulder as Annabelle sits in his lap.

Beau: “A beautiful baby.” He places a hand on Jac’s stomach.

The scene ends.

We see a beach. People walk along the pier and bike down by the water. It shifts to show people out in the ocean swimming and laying out. The camera pans to Imani who is on the concrete sidewalk that runs along the edge of the beach, she is stretching.

Imani’s Confessional

“Today I’ve invited Monsè for a walk. After my conversation with Sheridan, I believe it’s best to address her directly and nip it in the bud, rather than unintentionally develop ill feelings for something she didn’t do.”

Imani: “Now where are these girls? Did they get lost?!” She looks at her phone.

We hear the ‘beep’ of a car being locked. In a parking lot, the camera focuses on Monsè who is getting out of the driver’s side of her McLaren and putting on her sunglasses.

Monsè’s Confessional

“I’m a little confused about why Imani invited me out today, so I’m bringing Yvonne for backup…”


We now get a shot of Yvonne getting out of the passenger side of the car.

Yvonne: “Let’s do this.” She looks at Monsè and they begin walking to the trail.

Monsè’s Confessional

“Imani and I have met in passing a couple of times through Sheridan, and there’s no bad blood, but we definitely aren’t grabbing lunch together every week so I’m skeptical. I know her and Yvonne are friendly so better safe than sorry.”

As Monsè and Yvonne approach Imani, she turns around and smiles, holding her arms wide open.

Imani: “Okay! The baddies with a body!” She hugs Monsè and Yvonne. “Thank you for joining me!”

Monsè: “Of course!”

Yvonne: “Hey girl, I’m happy Monsè asked me to tag along. I was actually suppose do do something with Heidi, but Heidi is at Marcie’s event so I passed.” She shrugs.

Monsè: “I feel you girl, that Heidi is a mess.” She rolls her eyes. “You’re better off with us sane girls.”

Imani: “Also, you won’t be missing much! Is it a pie a bake off?” She laughs.

The three ‘Wives all let out a laugh, the camera focuses on Yvonne.

Yvonne’s Confessional

“I’ve known Imani for a couple years now, so I’m always happy to see her around the group. Monsè was nervous to come by herself so she called me, now let’s hope there are no shenanigans. I’m too old to be caught up in nature trying to separate two women.”

Imani’s Confessional

“Yvonne and I just click! We’ve known each other for years; My daughter Natalia adores that woman! She’s always rooting for me and I love that. I don’t know if it’s an age thing, but she grounds me! When she sees I’m getting irritated she’s always there for me.”

The women begin walking the trail.

Imani: “Well I have to say, I had so much fun with you at Sheridan’s party, Monsè.”

Imani smiles at Monsè, and she smiles back.

Monsè: “Same! It’s nice to have you around the group. I’ve been wanting to get to know you better.” She puts her hair up. “Speaking of, what brings us out today? I was kind of surprised to get your text honestly. You wanted to talk to me about something?”

Imani: “Well Yvonne already knows this, but to add context, last year was complicated for me; My ex-husband stopped contacting my daughter, I moved in with my ex Derek, which led to horrible break up. Earlier this year I started going on dates again and I had some luck- ish…”

We see Monsè nodding along, but looking a bit lost.

Imani: “I started seeing this man and I fell for him; and long story short, he was hooking up with your sister. Phony? Phoebe?”

Yvonne: “Oh my gosh!”

Imani: “I’m not sure what her name is. All I know she is an up and coming influencer?”

Monsè looks completely surprised.

Monsè: “Phoebe?! He was cheating on you with Phoebe?”

Yvonne: “So, was she like the mistress? Were you and the man serious and exclusive?”

Monsè stops on the trail, Imani and Yvonne stop as well and walk off to the side to talk.

Monsè: “Hey! Don’t be calling my sister a mistress.” She glares at Yvonne. “I’m sure this is a huge mix up.” She looks back to Imani.

Imani: “I mean — I was entertaining this man. Time went on, we saw each other for a few months, so things were headed towards that serious path…before I found out. I didn’t confront him. I’m at a point in my life where you’re getting cut off after the first strike, but what I know is that we attended events together where Phoebe was in attendance and she knew we were together.”

Monsè: “Wow, that’s alot.” She shakes her head. “ I’m sorry that happened to you, but he had to have been playing them both. I can guarantee you Phoebe doesn’t get down like that.”

Imani: “Well Phoebe came up like a fan introducing herself to us…”

Yvonne: “I think it’s clear Phoebe wasn’t a mistress, he was just playing both of you.” She looks to Imani. “Did he have an important job? Like is he somebody in Beverly society?”

Imani: “He’s in finance. He gets paid well which is why I started entertaining him.”

Yvonne: “That’s probably why shy entertained him too!”

Yvonne laughs and then sees that Monsè is glaring at her, so she stops.

Yvonne’s Confessional

“I don’t know Phoebe that well. She’s an attractive girl and everything, but she’s also unemployed and sister allowances can only take you so far. It makes sense to me if she was dealing with someone who could help her come up.”

Imani: “I don’t know, maybe I am just bitter Monsè, but as a woman you should be able to understand me and where I’m coming from in this situation.”

Monsè: “I can empathize with you, of course that sucks. But Phoebe’s not some gold digging hoe, she doesn’t need to steal someone else’s man.”

Imani: “But she did.” She shrugs and drinks from her water bottle.He cheated, but she entertained him.”

Monsè just shakes her head.

Yvonne: “I hope you both got a Neiman’s bill paid or a cute bag out of this. That man sounds like a dog!”

Monsè’s Confessional

“This is crazy! How the hell did Phoebe get wrapped up in some drama with Imani?! Someone’s lying and it’s sure as hell not my sister.”

Imani: “Monsè, I don’t want issues with you, but I thought you should know. Coming around this group of women was hard because I thought seeing you would be a trigger but you seem like a cool girl!”

Monsè: “Look, we don’t know each other that well so I don’t want to get off on the wrong foot. I’ll talk to Phoebe and sort this whole thing out.”

Imani: “No, absolutely! I have no beef with you, Monsè. I just thought you should know because it’s been affecting me alot — and I know it’s not your problem…” She nods at Monsè. “But I just thought you needed to know this.”

Imani’s Confessional

“I can’t say or trust that it runs in the family because if we recall, Lorelei had her whorish ways and I certainly don’t; so I hope to bond with Monsè over our hoe sisters.”

Monsè: “Well I appreciate you bringing it to me directly and I’m sorry that happened to you girl. I’m glad you’re still open to moving forward as friends regardless of what happened.”

Imani: “Yes, girl! It’s not your fault! I don’t want to disrespect you ever, you seem like a good woman.”

Monsè: “You too, girl. Come here, bring it in, bitch!” She hugs Imani.

Monsè’s Confessional

“Well that’s a hell of a way to start a new friendship. I definitely don’t like what I’m hearing but at least she’s woman enough to bring it to me instead of gossiping with the group.”

Imani: “Now, lets go. You owe me a smoothie!” She laughs and pulls away from Monsè.

Yvonne: “Yes, please! Smoothies on Monsè! I’m hot as hell!” She fans herself.

Monsè: “Now wait now — Hold on. How did I end up paying?!”

The scene fades as Imani, Yvonne, and Monsè walk off.

The scene begins with Jac and Beau in their penthouse kitchen.


We see beautiful views of Downtown Beverly Beach through the windows in their high rise. Jac is pouring two cups of juice.

Beau: “Need any help, babe?”

Jac: “No, I got it! I’m pregnant…not disabled.” She chuckles and carries the two glasses of juice to the living room.

Jac’s Confessional

“After the chaos that was Sheridan’s Labor Day party, I’ve invited her over to the house so she and I can talk things through. I love Sheridan but her behaviour towards me lately is absolutely unacceptable. I want to get to the bottom of this now before it gets to a place that I know neither one of us want it to.”

We hear the doorbell ring.

Beau: “Babe, I think she’s here.”

Jac: “Can you let her in?” She yells from the living room.

The camera follows Beau as he goes and opens the door for Sheridan.


Beau: “Hey Sheridan!” He smiles. “Come in, Jac is in the living room.”

Sheridan: “Thanks Beau!” She hugs him and follows Beau to the living room.

Sheridan’s Confessional

“I’m going over to Jacqueline’s home — er — apartment — because things got a little heated at my beach party. I mean, she went into my home, snooped around, threw digs and then arrived at the party upset. Pregnancy hormones are a bitch I hear, so I’m willing to give her a pass if she says the right things.”

When Sheridan comes into the living room, Jac gets up off the couch.

Sheridan: “Hey mama.”

Jac: “Hey babe, thanks for coming over.” She gives Sheridan a kiss on the cheek.

Beau: “Girls, I’m going to take Annabelle to the park so you guys can have some space to chat.”

Jac: “Thanks babe.” She sits back down.

Annabelle runs out of her room and waves at Sheridan.

Annabelle: “Bye Auntie Deen!”

Sheridan: “Bye boo bear!” She hugs Annabelle. “Have fun!” She smiles.

We see Beau pick Annabelle up and walk her out of the penthouse, the camera pans back to the two ‘Wives.

Jac: “So, how are you doing?” She sipes her juice.

Sheridan: “I’m actually doing fine, ya know, besides the fact that my boyfriend is not taking my calls due to the story you accidentally leaked.”

Jac has her eyebrows raised now.

Sheridan’s Confessional

“Ya know, I want to believe Jac leaked the story accidentally but with Imani sharing with me that Jacqueline sent her a text message insinuating Imani wanted to drive a wedge between her and I…it seems very suspect.”

Jac: “And what story was that?” She flicks her hair out of her face and sets her juice back down.

Sheridan lets out a laugh.

Sheridan: “Let’s not feign ignorance, we discussed this between your screaming at my party. The story that you leaked about me sending nudes — except your story mentioned my ex husband’s name instead of my current boyfriend.”

Jac: “Look Sheridan, I’m telling you that it was a god honest mistake. I genuinely got confused. Your boyfriends name is…” She hesitates. “Mar-cus? And your ex husband is Mar-tin, right?”

Sheridan: “Jac, just stop — You, Beau, Marcus and I have hung out multiple times.”

Sheridan’s Confessional

“Why is it suspect? Jacqueline has only lived in Beverly Beach since I’ve been dating Marcus. She barely knows Martin.”

Sheridan: “Annabelle was just calling me aunt — you know the difference between my ex husband and my boyfriend. It just seems sketchy girl, especially with the text you sent Imani — and going through my home, dropping plastic cups — what the hell are you doing?”

Jac clutches her chest.

Jac: “What the hell am I doing? Sorry but you’re the one who has been calling me fat for months. You’re the one who has been talking about the size of my ankles. You’re the one who purposely excluded me from a trip to Twitter then said it was because no one liked me. You’re the one who threatened to have me arrested for entering your home when I was invited to your home for a party. The real question is, what the hell are YOU doing?”

Jac’s Confessional

“All of this back and forth is petty but the moment Sheridan threatened me with handcuffs was the moment it became apparent to me that she doesn’t care about me and my well-being. Who would threaten to have their pregnant best friend arrested?”

Sheridan: “Oh girl — let’s get something clear. You’re fat.” She purses her lips. “Fat is beautiful on a pregnant woman. Stop trying to make it a negative thing. You’ll lose the weight when the baby pops out your cooch.”

Jac: “That’s not cool, Sheridan. It’s not nice. I know you don’t know what being pregnant is like, but my weight gain isn’t a laughing matter. It’s not nice and if you’re truly my friend, you’ll stop it.”

Jac’s Confessional

“What Sheridan doesn’t understand is that during my last pregnancy, I gained something like 45 pounds. FORTY FIVE POUNDS!! She’s going to say I’m fat when I’m barely 20 weeks pregnant? That’s just horrific.”

Sheridan: “Fat jokes aside…they were just that — Jokes! But, I’ll apologize for the fat jokes at this point, I didn’t know you were such a sensitive girl who had insecurities about your weight. I’m sorry I hit a soft spot — It was never that serious for you to decide to be a bitch and lose your damn mind by practically breaking and entering in my home.”

Jac: “You better stop with this breaking and entering narrative, Sheridan. I’m serious. You better stop that right now. I wont have you concoct this narrative that I’m some kind of thief.”

Sheridan’s Confessional

“The party invitation included verbiage that led people to the beach behind my home. No one was invited into my home and Jacqueline was the only woman to my knowledge who entered. Thankfully she was escorted out after doing some suspect things, according to my party planner.”

Jac: “You invite people to a party that is adjacent to your home yet don’t offer them a toilet to shit in. What the fuck is that?”

Sheridan lets out a sigh and sips her juice.

Sheridan: “You need to use the restroom? Talk to me! That gave you no right to snoop around my home and do whatever you were doing with the plastic cups — seems very suspect of you! You came with an agenda.”

Jac: “I came with an agenda?! And you bringing that little blow up Chinatown built barbie, wasn’t some kind of bullshit?”

Sheridan: “She doesn’t even know you!” She laughs. “Imani has been my friend for many, many years — long before I even met you. What is going on with you? Messaging her with your insecurities she wasn’t even talking about you before you texted her about me. You’re losing your damn mind!”

Sheridan’s Confessional

“Jacqueline seems to be jealous of my friendship with Imani. Girl she wasn’t even stunting you — she was spilling tea on Monsè’s sister…but, you went and started a problem with her and now BOOM! Here we are.”

Jac: “I did text her and SHE HAS COME BETWEEN OUR FRIENDSHIP! Look at where we are, Sheridan. She’s a no good pot stirrer bitch. She can’t even get along with her own sister for crying out loud. How can anyone trust that?”

Sheridan: “Oh my god Jacqueline, you sound ridiculous.” She shakes her head and puts her phone in her purse. “If I didn’t already know you had a daughter named Annabelle I’d tell you to name this baby Annabelle because maybe it’s a demon seed making you act this way.”

Jac gasps.

Jac: “How fucking dare you?! Are you actually serious right now? You’re likening my unborn child with some doll in a horror movie? What the actual fuck, Sheridan?”

Sheridan: “You’re being so fucking dramatic!” She giggles. “This baby needs to come out so you can get some sense, bitch!”

Jac: “You know what? I think we’re done here.” She gets up. “I think you should leave.”

Sheridan: “Jac! Are you serious right now?”

Jac’s Confessional

“Likening my children to demons?! Has this bitch lost her fucking mind?”

Jac: “Actually, scratch that. You should definitly leave.” She snatches the glass of juice out of Sheridan’s hands as she remains seated on the couch. “You need to leave. Now.”

Sheridan: “Gladly!” She stands up. “I don’t have to be asked twice — and I hope you recognized I rang the doorbell when I arrived. You should start doing that, or else you may end up in handcuffs. See ya soon, love!” She waves as she walks towards the door.

Jac: “And maybe you should stop sending photos of your twat to every man with a pulse.”

Sheridan: “And maybe you should stop having children with a man you don’t even love!” She laughs.

Sheridan’s Confessional

“Does Jacqueline love Beau? Who knows. She’s been more focused on her businesses than her marriage.”

Sheridan: ““No need to walk me out! The ankles need a rest! Bye lovie!”

As Sheridan walks out and slams the door, the camera pans to Jac who’s mouth is wide open as she now begins talking to a Producer off camera.

Jac: “Is she serious? Is she actually going there with the father of my children?”

Jac’s Confessional

“First it was my body then it was the threat of an arrest then it was my unborn child and now it’s my husband? We’ve officially gone to a new low. I don’t know if we can ever recover from this.”

Jac: “That bitch passes her vagina around to any and every pro-athlete and she’s speaking on my man?!” She scoffs.

The scene ends with Jac alone in her penthouse.

The camera pans over a fun brunch hotspot in Beverly Beach. We see Imani walking around a table in a private room, making sure everything is perfect.

Imani’s Confessional

“Oh, hunni, after all the drama Jacqueline has been causing — “ She begins counting on her fingers. “So far she’s jealous of my friendship with Sheridan and has also personally attacked me off camera — I am just so excited about today’s Sisterhood Soirée brunch! It’s the perfect opportunity for all of us to come together, support each other, and maybe even smooth things over after all that recent drama. Let’s spill the tea, ladies!”

Sheridan, Yvonne, & Imani

Yvonne and Sheridan are the first two to enter and be escorted back to the private room.

Yvonne: “I hope we can actually expect sisterhood today…”

Sheridan scoffs; when they enter the room Imani goes to give them hugs.

Imani: “Oh hey body!” She looks Yvonne up and down after they hug. “I was just thinking- is anyone coming?” She laughs.

Yvonne: “I went to pick Sheridan up and she slowed us down.”

Sheridan: “Sorry! I was up late, I’m so exhausted. I flew in from New York City.”

Sheridan’s Confessional

“Monsè and I were invited to Courtney Porter’s recent nuptials in New York City. What a fabulous wedding!”

The scene switches to show Monsè and Valentina walking in together, arm in arm.

Valentina & Monsè

Valentina: “ Oh this is definitely a soirée!” She looks around and laughs. “ I am starving, I hope we actually eat today!”

Monsè: “Hey ladies!”

We get a montage of Valentina and Monsè greeting Sheridan, Imani, and Yvonne.

Valentina’s Confessional

“I’ve only met Imani once but she seemed lovely so when she invited me to her sisterhood brunch I couldn’t help but say yes! She seems sweet and I look forward to getting to know her more!”

Imani: “Well ladies we are in Beverly Beach at Imani’s Sisterhood Soirèe…” She claps her hands together and grins. “Please take a seat! We have drinks and food, I hope you like it.”

The girls all cheer and take a seat at the table. The camera pans to show Heidi who is now entering the private room with the host.


Valentina: “Oh here comes Heidi!”

Monsè: “Oh, hey girl!” She waves at Heidi. “I didn’t know you were coming today.”

Sheridan: “Hey Heidi!”

Imani: “I invited her! I didn’t get to know her the other day, she’s late, but please come join us Heidi.”

Heidi: “Thank you, Imani!” She walks in out of breath,

Heidi’s Confessional

“I don’t know Imani very well but I’m delighted to attend her so called Sisterhood Soirée. Perhaps Yvonne and I can talk about what happend on Labor Day.”

Heidi walks over and takes a seat at the table. Monsè and Valentina sit on one side of the table, Sheridan and Yvonne sit at the other. Imani is at the head and Heidi is across from her on the other end.

Heidi: “We had a disaster at the salon. My stylist got my wardrobe mixed up. Anyways lovely to see you all.” She continues to pant; she holds her hands up and looks around the table.

Valentina: “Well, we are glad you could join is, Heidi!” She smiles and puts her napkin on her lap.

The camera focuses on Yvonne who stares Heidi down, we catch her making a face.

Yvonne’s Confessional

“Why do we keep inviting Heidi places, especially with alcohol?”

Imani: “Ladies, thank you all for coming. Today is all about us, our sisterhood, and uplifting each other. Let’s toast to that and being all about positive energy today.” She holds up her mimosa.

Monsè: “Yess good vibes only!” She clinks her glass.

Valentina: “Now this is my kind of brunch!”

Heidi: “To friendship!” She picks up her water.

After taking a sip of her drink, the camera zooms in on Imani.

Imani: “Ever since I took a break from the group, I decided to join therapy to heal my past and focus on present. One of the activities that I do with my daughter is to say positive things about each other everyday while I take her to school. I want to do that with you all as well.”

Imani’s Confessional

“I have changed so much not being around this group. I left my ex abusive husband, my boyfriend, and managed to dodge a bullet who’s dating a hooker. Yes, that’s what I call growth!”

Sheridan: “Oh I love that!”

Valentina: “Oh, how sweet is this!” She grins. “I do morning affirmations with my children every morning too!”

We see Heidi chuckle and set down her water.

Heidi’s Confessional

“I don’t know Imani very well but if there’s one thing I do know is that her trying to play therapist with this group can only go downhill!”

Imani: “Let’s begin our activity by going around and sharing one nice thing about the person whose turn it is. Sheridan, you’re up first.”

Sheridan: “Oh yay! Me first!” After a moment of silence she looks around. “Y’all don’t have anything nice to say about me or…..”

Monsè: “I’ll go first! Sheridan, you are a great businesswoman and you always fight for what you believe in. I really admire that about you.”

Sheridan: “Thank you, babes.” She smiles.

Yvonne: “I admire Sheridan’s intellect and business acumen. She also seems like she has great sex, kudos to Sheridan!” She raises her glass.

Sheridan: “Thanks, Yvonne Langley!” She laughs.

Imani: “Sherry. I think you’re passionate, a great partner to your man you love to brag and talk about, and a supportive friend.”

Valentina: “Sheridan you are a beautiful person, a true girls girl and you have really welcomed me into this group of women and I love how business driven you are!”

Sheridan: “Awww! I appreciate that, Val!”

Heidi’s Confessional

“Her ego must be loving this moment.”

The ‘Wives all looks to Heidi who has yet to say anything about Sheridan.

Heidi: “Sheridan I like your hair. The blonde is cute.”

Sheridan: “Okay?” She laughs. “Thanks Heidi.”

Sheridan’s Confessional

“Weird energy from an alleged alcoholic who spends her free time talking shit about everyone but has no real friendships in the group.”

Imani: “Next up, Monsè!”

Monsè: “Ooooh yay!” She claps.

Sheridan: “Monsè, you’re adorable and kind. You’re loyal to the end and back and are not easily swayed. You’re also a fierce business woman and queen!”

Valentina: “Oh Monsè, I could go on about how much I love and adore you! You really have been such a true friend to me. You are loyal to the bone! The way you love your husband and child is admirable. I am so grateful that i ran into you that one night at the academy awards, your the Lucy to my Ethel!”

Valentina’s Confessional

“Oh how I love Monsè, she’s really been the kind of girlfriend I needed in Beverly Beach. Her friend who disappeared didn’t deserve her friendship and loyalty.”

Imani: “Monsè, I’m not going to lie. Coming back to this group, I thought we were going to butt heads, but I’ve grown to like you and genuinely want to seek a friendship with you.”

Yvonne: “I would say your buisness is growing but we have no evidence of that anymore. So, I’ll say that you’re fun to be around!”

Monsè: “Thank you, ladies! I love all of you too!”

Imani: “Heidi, anything you’d like to say about Monsè?”

Heidi: “Oh yes!” She covers her mouth as she finishes chewing. “Monsè, although we’re not the closest you have been nothing but kind and welcoming. I hope we can continue to build a relationship.” She blows her a kiss.

Imani’s Confessional

“Everyone’s enjoying themselves and bonding while Build-A-Bear is stuffing her face with half of the catering. Come on Heidi, wake up!”

Imani: “Yvonne, you’re up now! I adore you girl. I’ve known you for your years and you’re always someone I count on. You are one of a kind and I don’t enough words to thank you for your friendship.”

Yvonne blows a kiss to Imani.

Sheridan: “Yvonne, even though we haven’t been on the same page recently, I appreciate your friendship and know if push comes to shove we will always be there for each other. You’re one of a kind, my friend.”

Heidi: “Yeah, I got nothing on this one.” She begins eating her french toast.

Yvonne: “It’s okay Heidi, the pharmacists don’t have a cure for your kind either.”

Valentina: “Yvonne while our path is bumpy I admire how you defend girls even if they are in the wrong. Plus for your age you’re beautiful!”

Yvonne: “Backhanded, but I appreciate it”

Valentina: “Kinda like how you work!” She smiles and finishes off her mimosa.

Yvonne: “Self made, yeah — Very diffrent from your type of ‘work’.” She smiles back.

Sheridan: “No ladies, back to positivity! Who’s turn, Imani!?”

Imani: “Next up, Valentina! I mean, y’all ever want to fuck a woman out of no where?”

Valentina yelps and all of the ladies burst out laughing.

Imani: “Val, I get so many good vibes from you girlie. We’ve known each other for two week but I already adore you.”

Valentina: “Thank you, you are hilarious Imani! I’ve enjoyed getting to know!”

Sheridan: “Valentina, can I say fun girl!! We have so much fun together and I am thankful that we have become fast friends.”

Valentina: “So glad to call you a friend, Sheridan!”

Heidi: “Tina I just love you and the friendship we’ve created!” She giggles. “That’s all!”

Valentina: “Thank you Heidi, you are one of a kind!”

Monsè: “Valentina! I know we’re relatively new friends, but you’ve been there for me through some tough times and I just love you girl! And your yacht is fab too.” She winks.

Yvonne: “I admire that you started out as the eye candy and you’ve elevated to a trophy wife. You are incredibly tenacious and even through our rocky start, you exhibit the qualities for significance in this society.”

Producer: “What are the qualities?”
Yvonne’s Confessional

“I won’t go there because I’m going to respect Imani’s push for positivity.”

Imani: “Heidi! Well, I don’t know you at all, but you look like a good woman!” She shrugs.

Heidi: “Thank you honey. Thank you for having me today.” She smiles.

Valentina: “Heidi, I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you, even with all your quirkiness! And your style is one of a kind!”

Yvonne: “Heidi, you allegedly put down a bottle like nobody’s business. You can go toe to toe with the best of the beer drinking baseball guys and I admire any woman that can hold her own in a man’s field.”

Sheridan: “Heidi, you are a very strong beast of a woman, in a good way!. I want a woman your size on my team any day and time.” She smirks.

Heidi: “My size? Last I recall you’re not that skinny!” She scrunches up her nose at Sheridan.

Sheridan: “I have curves, you have a lot of meat or maybe as some girls say, are ya big boned. There’s a difference.”

Sheridan’s Confessional

“Look, I forgave Heidi for talking shit with her hairdresser about me. I even took her on a trip to try and befriend her. I thought we were good and she came here being a bitch. I match energy, quickly.”

Heidi: “There is a difference. You’re a slut and you’re fat. Big difference.”

Yvonne: “Oh that’s disgusting, Heidi. You’re repulsive.”

Sheridan suddenly stands up.

Sheridan: “Where is the fat, Heidi? My ass?” She laughs and shakes it. “Girl, you are delusional. I’ve been with 2 men during my entire tenure on television. Do you even have a man?”

Imani: “Listen ladies I’d like for you all to table this. I don’t want another repeat of Sheridan’s Labor Day party.”

Heidi’s Confessional

“Ever since I’ve stepped foot in this group I’ve been attacked for my looks and weight. I’m just so over it. I’m sorry I don’t live on Ketamine and Red Bull. I live a lifestyle that works for me! I feel great and look great and that’s all that matters.”

Heidi: “I’m going to the bathroom.” She gets up and walks off quietly.

As the ‘Wives remain at the table, the camera zooms out. We now start getting shots of a California Winery. The camera shows Jac and Beau get out of their car.

Beau: “Here, babe. I’ll help you inside.”

Jac: “Thank you, honey. I’ve got it!”

Beau: “I’ll be in the area just text me and I’ll come take you home. Please don’t let these girls stress you out. You can’t keep getting all worked up. Remove yourself from the situation.”

Jac: “I know, I should be fine today…Sheridan won’t be here.”

Beau gives Jac a kiss before he gets back in the car, Jac eneters the winery.

Jac’s Confessional

“Marcie has invited me out to a winery on the same day as Imani’s little soirée. Even though I can’t enjoy any of the wines or champagne, I’d be more than happy to not attend that bootleg BS and sip on some water.”

The camera pivots from Jac sitting and texting on her phone to Serena Ames who has now walked into the winery lobby.


Serena: “I see we have the same thoughts today! Hello beautiful.” She hugs Jac.

Jac: “Hey lovey! I know! Look at us in our beige.” She laughs.

Serena: “Yes! And this baby bump!!Oh my gosh. I just know you are so excited!” She grins.

Jac: “I am!” She rubs her belly. “Despite some of these girls calling me fat and making fun of my swollen ankles, I’m so excited for this blessing! A blessing they will never experience.”

Serena: “Awww, I’m sorry that happened to you. Being pregnant definitely isn’t a gateway to make fun of anyone’s body. Pregnancy is hard as hell.”

Serena’s Confessional

“The last time I saw Jac, it was NOT good. Sheridan’s party really upset her. So I’m glad that Marcie invited me… so that I can get to know the ladies for myself!”

Jac: “So tell me girl, how are you going? We didn’t really get to chat the other night, so I’m excited to get to know you!”

Serena: “I’m doing well! Just working with some new clients and continuing to expand my salon. So everything is everything. How about you? Especially after the other night…”

Jac: “It’s been a tough journey for me these last few months. Between leaving RoR, things being uneasy in my marriage and then a surprise pregnancy, I was hoping that my friends would be supportive but I guess that was naive of me.” She laughs. “The Labor Day party just confirmed that.”

Serena looks at Jac sympthitically.

The camera zooms out and it transitions back to Imani, Sheridan, Monsè, Valentina, Yvonne, and Heidi at the Sisterhood Soireè.

Valentina: “That Labor Day party went to hell in just five seconds…” She widens her eyes. “Sheridan how are you feeling after the party?”

Sheridan: “Well, it was hell.” She laughs. “Someone invited their hairdresser who threw a conniption fit and then I had Jacqueline breaking and entering into my home throwing plastic cups around out of her bag to try and embarrass me because she’s upset Imani and I have been hanging out so much lately.”

Imani: “Jac is out of control.” She shakes her head.

Sheridan’s Confessional

“When I saw on my security cameras that Jacqueline entered my home uninvited and was throwing plastic solo cups around to fit some weird narrative, I was shocked.”

Yvonne: “Where did all of this start?” She looks around, confused. “Valentina and Monsè tried to help me understand but I don’t get it, Sheridan. Where did you and Jac veer off?”

Monsè: “I’m still a little confused myself. Y’all were so tight.” She looks to Sheridan.

Valentina: “I just was in such shock at how that party went from being a good time to hollering and crying. Jac has told me she’s devastated at the demise of you guys relationship.”

Imani: “Jac is the reason for the demise.” She rolls her eyes. “She’s giving all this attention to Sheridan like she’s her man, give me a break!”

Sheridan: “I actually visited Jac’s home and was kicked out…but I can tell you that she says she’s upset that I’ve made jokes about her pregnancy weight. To me, they were just jokes.” She shrugs. “But let her tell it I’m the problem. I even asked her like girl is it the baby making you act that way? Is it a demon seed?! Maybe I shouldn’t have called the new baby a demon seed — but it didn’t make it right for her to talk about my infertility or to call me a slut.”

Monsè: “Girl…” She chuckles. “Let’s not talk about kids, even unborn ones.”

Sheridan: “I honestly think her true issue is Imani. She texted Imani some weird messages and ever since, Jac has been acting crazy towards me. She literally was throwing red solo cups around my home to try and paint a narrative.”

Imani: “I’m at my limit. I’m trying to be as nice as I can with her because as I mother I know how emotional pregnancy gets you, but being a bitch isn’t an excuse.”

Valentina: “Imani do you know Jac? I’m just confused why Jac is mad that Sheridan has friends other than her? It doesn’t make sense.”

Imani: “I met Jac at my sister’s party last year. She was so happy to meet me, all of sudden she’s started to attack me this year I came around.”

Valentina: “That’s so weird to me Imani. I just am shocked at the sudden change of events.”

Yvonne: “You’ll learn that Jac can be very up-and-down…”

Sheridan: “Imani, show them the text she sent you!”

Imani: “This is what she sent me.” She pulls out her phone and shows the ‘Wives.

Imani: “Oh and there’s more– she keeps threatening me.” She scrolls through her camera roll.

Imani’s Confessional

“I’m at my limit with Jac. Ever since our social media brawl with Lorelei, things haven’t been the same, and the way she’s trying to bring her into this mess when I haven’t done anything to her is very hypocritical.”

Sheridan: “Jac just isn’t the same. I don’t know if it’s the Imani issue or the fact her husband is unhappy in the marriage.” She sighs. “I just want Jac to get out of this funk. I miss when she wasn’t a sensitive bitch.”

Valentina: “Sheridan! First her child now her husband. You better stop especially if you want a path forward!”

Producer: “This is the second time you’ve alluded to issues in Jac’s marriage.”
Sheridan’s Confessional

“Beau isn’t happy. He wants her to be home more and give him more attention. She likes attention elsewhere.”

Monsè: “I think we should give Jac a bit of a break. She’s clearly going through a lot of emotions, being pregnant and all. She just needs to feel supported by us right now.”

Sheridan: “She will have to apologize. I haven’t said anything untrue — -well I’m sure the baby isn’t a demon but that was just a joke. It’s like, her daughter Annabelle isn’t an evil doll. Come on!”

Imani: “Being pregnant doesn’t give you the right to be a bitch!”

Monsè: “Jac can be dramatic! I’m sure she doesn’t mean it.”

The camera zooms out. There is a cool transition, we see wine being poured. There is a montage as Marcie joins Jac and Serena.

The three women sit outside on the terrace overlooking the vineyard, Serena and Marcie enjoy a glass of wine while Jac sips on water.

Marcie: “I want to know — how are you and Sheridan doing?”

Jac: “I actually saw her the other day. She came over to the penthouse. It was…” She pauses. “Interesting.”

Marcie: “Ugh, I could imagine.” She sips her wine.

Serena: “Tell us about that. Was there any progress?”

Jac rolls her eyes and lets out a sigh.

Jac: “She said that my unborn child is demonic.” She holds up a finger. “She said I should stop having children with my husband.” She holds up another finger. “She threatened to have me arrested if I ever entered her house.” She holds up a finger again. “It was…” She starts to tear up. “It was devastating.”

Marcie gasps.

Marcie: “Shis can’t be real Jac. This is sick.” She passes Jac a napkin. “That’s no kind of friend to anyone.”

Serena: “Wait a minute…wait a minute! Are you serious?!” She looks in shock. “That’s sooo low. I’m sorry Jac.” She looks really concerened. “Wow…”

Marcie: “Why is she so evil? Those are fighting words, Jac.”

Jac: “I’m telling you, I’ve never had anyone say anything so vile and disgusting to me in my entire life.”

Serena’s Confessional

“Hearing this really kind of weirds me out… Talking negatively about children is a NO GO! At any time. I’m… I’m flabbergasted to say the least.”

Serena: “Yeah, that’s mean. You should really let her know that’s not cool. I understand responding out of anger, but we should be able to control ourselves. And children are completely off limits. No matter what.”

Marcie: “What is she even this angry over? I’ve never heard of someone speak the way like she did to you. That’s beyond bully behavior. She’s evil for those comments.”

Jac: “I don’t even care at this point Marcie. I defended that girl when no one else did and for her to treat me in such a manner.” She shakes her head. “It’s unforgivable. Right now, I have no plans to speak to her ever again.”

Marcie: “Are you saying you will not come to events that she’s attending?”

Jac: “Oh she’s not running me off but I won’t be speaking to her or her little sidekick. Trust me, I’ve got some tea on her that I’m more than willing to spill.”

Marcie and Serena look at one another.

Jac: “Anyways…” She sips her water. “Marcie, I know we talked the other day about standing up for yourself…Did you stand up to Sheridan and tell her to stop belitting you?”

Marcie: “I tried to stand up to Sheridan but all the other ladies jumped in and it became a pile on.”

Marcie’s Confessional

“I don’t know how to navigate past this with these women. My feelings are beyond hurt and I just feel like no one cares to hear me out.”

Jac: “Marcie you need to put these girls in their place.” She shakes her head. “Even with everything going on with Sheridan I love her but she does have a habit of kind of preying on weak people. Don’t let her prey on you.”

Marcie: “I’m not weak Jac, but I’m also not going to make an ass out of me just to prove my point to Sheridan.”

Jac’s Confessional

“I believe Marcie when she says she’s not weak but it’s like in the school yard. When you have a bully, you need to just punch them out so they leave you alone and in this situation Sheridan is behaving like a bully.”

Marcie: “What’s crazy to me is that they treated Serena totally different than they do me and we both do the same thing! I just am at my breaking point with this group. It’s starting to become to the point where I don’t know if this is the right kind of people I want in my life.”

Serena: “I will say… everyone seems to be very nice. Very different than you two’s experience. I kind of knew a couple girls beforehand. I did find the hairstylist shade kinda shocking. And I think I even commented on it. Because although I am more than a hairstylist, I am still a hairstylist.” She chuckles. “Are you sure there wasn’t something deeper there?”

Serena and Jac both look to Marcie.

Marcie: “I think it was a jab at us both Serena! I really believe these girls look down on us because of our profession. These girls are just out to get me.” She shakes her head.

Jac and Serena both look at Marcie with concern.

The scene transitions back to the ‘Wives at Imani’s Sisterhood Soireè. The waiters are clearing off the plates at the table and refilling drinks for the women.

Valentina: “I’m worried we are never going to see Marcie again.”

Sheridan: “Are we talking about the hairdresser at this brunch?” She raises an eyebrow. “Is that even a necessary subject?”

Valentina: “Well she left your event Sheridan in hysterics….”

Sheridan: “Who invited her? I was honest, I do not know that woman besides the fact she dyed and cut my hair into this beautiful bob!” She shakes her bob.

Valentina: “I think Heidi invited her if I’m not mistaken.”

Sheridan: “Not surprising, she probably boosted her up to cause a scene.”

The camera pans to show Heidi who is walking back to the table.

Heidi: “Imani, thank you for inviting me…”

Imani: “Heidi, are you okay?” She gets up.

Heidi: “No. I’m so over it. I just need a break. I had a lovely time. I’ve had enough with the fat phobia from the sausage in blue.”

The camera pans to Sheridan.

Sheridan: “What else is going on?” She ignores Heidi.

Imani: “Well I’ll see you next time. Thank you for coming.” She hugs Heidi.

As Heidi walks out, Imani sits back down at the table.

Valentina: “Well so much for sisterhood.”

Yvonne: “It was about time she left.” She shrugs. “Maybe she needed to go grab some water to take her weight loss pills.”

Sheridan: “Val, was Heidi not being weird?” She looks at Valentina. “We had a great time in Twitter when the 3 of us went on a trip, and she comes to this event being a bitch to me.”

Valentina: “No this is definitely not the Heidi that we went to Twitter with! It’s just weird, I feel like there’s some secret alliance with Marcie, Heidi and Jac to go against you!”

Imani: “You think?”

Valentina: “It seems like it, Imani.” She finishes her cocktail .

Sheridan’s Confessional

“Up until today I have been nothing but kind to Heidi, even when she was talking poorly about my restaurant. I don’t understand why she came to this brunch with bad energy towards me, but I’m not one to sit and be silent so she poked the bear and got bit.”

Monsè: “I want to like her, and Marcie too, but it just seems like they’re not invested in getting to know the group. What else can we do?” She looks around.

Valentina: “Monsè — I agree. It’s really a shame because if you talk to them both one on one they are great but they just don’t seem to want to be here!”

Sheridan: “Marcie, I don’t even know that woman to dislike her which is my whole point. Heidi, she’s someone I was nice to who had chosen to pick a fight with me.”

Monsè’s Confessional

“Marcie and Heidi want to blame everyone but themselves for not being able to fit in. Have you ever invited me to lunch? A yoga class? It’s hard to get to know someone who won’t spend time with you.”

Yvonne: “I think the group needs to downsize. A lot of cooks and the kitchen is not big enough. What happened to exclusivity?”

We see the ‘Wives nodding along.

Imani: “Well, ladies, today was cute. We laughed, we supported each other, and we even managed to have some drama.” She looks to Sheridan. “’m looking forward to forming these good strong friendships with you all. Remember, we’re here for each other no matter what.”

Valentina: “This was so cute Imani, thank you for hosting us, it was a beautiful brunch!” She gets up to hug her.

Yvonne: “Until next time, ladies!”

The episode ends with the women clinking glasses and getting ready to leave.
