Last week, we were left via a burning question: Can we trust Ronda Sales (Valarie Pettiford)? This week we get our answer. But before sending ourselves into a tailspin, let's first talk sex. Episode 2 opens up via a romp between Mary Jane and also Lee (Chiké Okonkwo), a.k.a. the comedian. No surpclimb. Though, there’s another hookup happening just a few claims over: cousin Niecy (Raven Goodwin) and Dante (Cesar Cipriano), a.k.a. the father of her newborn. Sidebar: Seeing an African-Amerideserve to woguy in an interracial connection with someone that isn’t white (the usual go-to) is refreshing. Particularly given current trending news. Though sadly, Dante is a creep and also it’s clear to everyone yet Niecy. That information is not refreshing. He's come earlier into the image around the exact same time she’s collection to obtain her negotiation money.Back in the Big Apple, producer Garrett (Ashton Holmes) has news for MJ. She’s extending the glitzy New Hope charity occasion. But this is Ronda’s charity and also generally, well, Ronda covers it. Aha! MJ assumes it’s a ploy to location the 2 woguys at each others' necks — just as Ronda warned last week. “I asked for you to cover it,” Ronda later on confides. The queen bee wants civilization to watch there’s sufficient room for two Babsence womales to “have actually a seat at the table.” Has someone been listening to Solange’s latest album? She additionally desires MJ to recognize around Corey, the man running her charity. Apparently, he's sexy and single.In the seaboy premiere, MJ gained the Cinderella treatment after Ronda let her borrow her stylist. This week, Ronda fairy-godmothered her aget by handing her a rack of expensive dress choices for the massive night. MJ is charmed. The two veto options and also land on a bold, matte-pink number. She’s practically also nice. Ronda aside, I think this episode the writers wanted to remind us of just just how annoying our leading lady have the right to be. When it pertains to love, Mary Jane Paul desires perfection. Her standards aren’t high criteria, they’re unrealistic. She’s looking for her “Black unicorn.” But didn’t she obtain the memo? Outside of emoji keyboards, unicorns don’t exist.Lee, age 40, ultimately loses her attention as soon as he confides that he has two kids in London. MJ has actually questions. Particularly, “Why are you in the U.S. and not close to your kids?” You can feel her begin to shut dvery own. After inviting him to be her date for the huge night, she recoils. He’ll be a “distraction” she tells him over the phone. Ouch. This also provides her an excuse to search for her nonexistent unicorns. That night at the charity occasion, she links up through Corey, or as Kara called him"Andre 2.0" (a recommendation to her old lover/mistake, Andre Daniels). He’s an angular, broad-shouldered dude with a chiseled jaw. Though Kara sees the red flags: Andre 2.0 is the enemy; he handles Ronda's charity; and also as we know, Ronda is to be admired, not trusted. On the other hand, Ronda is feeling herself and touting an award around. She talks to MJ around an old professional foe that have the right to currently, kiss her "voluptuous, multimillion dollar ass." She gets MJ to talk about her experienced foes as well and also our HBIC in training shares stories around her nemesis, Justin Talbott (Michael Ealy). She tells Ronda that he, “stabbed her in the back and also walked over my dead body.” I can't help however think, Girl...why do you trust this woman through this information? Corey takes MJ back to her home — currently a hotel — and also he plainly intends to revolve the warm up. As they arrive, Lee is viewed leaving the lobby. Talk about negative timing. He eyes Corey, then Mary Jane. "I left my notepad in your room," he claims surprised to check out MJ through an additional date. "We never before shelp we were exclusive," MJ tells him."You definitely are a riddle, Mary Jane..." He then proceeds to check out the hell out of her: she's "a woguy through every little thing yet pleads for love from a perfect stranger." (A scene that I still cringe about a week later, btw.) "I'm done trying to number you out." Yikes. She tells Corey they have to grab a drink one more time, he watches her as she walks right into her home-tel. The next day MJ tells Kara that Corey is her “Babsence unicorn.” He’s single, handsome, no children. Basically, he’s excellent on paper. She additionally did what we all do: she stalked him digital and found that he has actually a pricey residence in Ditmas Park. Though, it transforms out, the amount of money he spent on his Brooklyn brownstone was the very same precise amount provided to build one of the New Hope foundation's colleges in Kenya. Corey has actually been stealing money from Ronda’s foundation — at least that’s what she and Kara assume. Then in the middle of sleuthing, the 2 uncover it’s not Corey who’s embezzling money, it’s Ronda’s cheating husband, Ellikid. His goatee and attraction to young blondes spells out: classical midlife crisis.However, the next morning a significant segment is scheducaused air on Ronda's charity, naturally this can’t take place. Kara makes MJ promise that they'll both go to Garrett with this indevelopment. "Ronda can't sit in that anchor chair if she's at the center of a controversy," Kara states. The following day, versus Kara’s instructions, MJ goes straight to Ronda. Bad decision. Ronda is shaken. While she suspected tright here was one more woguy she didn't suspect hubby was stealing money from her. "This is not just how I wanted this to take place," states MJ. "This" referring to her ousting from the lead anchor chair. Ronda then stands, looks at her young protégé and also chillingly says, "Do what you need to perform, Mary Jane."Ronda then goes on live television and also tearcompletely confesses to every one of America what’s transpired. She explains that her “associate” — not her husband also — was caught embezzling money. “Associate” indicates Corey. Nice move, Ronda. And it all happens prior to MJ has the possibility to sheight through Garett. Kara is livid. She understands just how Ronda works and that she cannot be trusted.Now humbled, MJ decides to offer Lee a visit, and return the notebook he involved pick up the night he eyed Corey. "I have a new one," he claims, dismissively, when MJ tries to hand it to him. She bares her spirit and much to her surpclimb, he foroffers her. "What's in it for you?" she asks."The answer to a riddle," he says. "The riddle is a complicated American womale, my complex Amerihave the right to woguy." Aww. The last scene is one we should’ve all checked out coming.
