Alex drops by Vawn’s house to sip wine and eat some fish and rice he just “happened” to prepare before she arrived. Gag reflexes need to be strong to get through the flirtatious interaction between these two. Like a typical narcissist, Vawn asks Alex what she likes about him. And she goes right into her trophy wife mode and lays it on thick. “Your confidence…that’s what got me looking your way,” she giggles several times throughout the evening.
You can see she has plans to be his Beyonce and Vawn the next Jay Z, creating a powerful Atlanta couple. Vawn seems to be enjoying himself dangling a possible relationship in front of Alex like dangling a piece of yarn in front of a kitty cat. Vawn escorts Alex out and gives her a peck on the cheek.
Vawn goes furniture shopping with Africa. “I’ve learned with Vawn not to put too much stock and take things for what they are. If he’s looking for a couch for the studio-he’s looking for a couch for the studio. That does not translate into a wife and a life. I do get that.”
Despite this understanding, Africa still asks him the dreaded where-is-this-going question. He admits having feelings for her but he’s just not in that place to be committed and monogamous to one woman. He even admits to Africa that Alex came over to talk, but nothing transpired other than dinner and a conversation.
“He saying he wants to get to know me. If it’s a point where I can’t handle it I’ll say that,” and vice versa Africa says during her monologue, but stares at the floor when she says she’s okay with it.
Is Africa settling for whatever Vawn dishes, but really wants more? Is he playing her or is she playing herself?
Africa’s good buddy Emily, in the meantime, is working diligently to throw a fashion show to raise money for cystic fibrosis. A disease her sister died from as an infant and her older brother suffers from now. Alex chooses to show up to the event to be a mean girl and stir up some drama…and that she does. She follows Africa to the restroom. The dialogue between the two is hilarious!
Here’s a tidbit of that confab:
Alex: Are you made Africa or insecure about something?
Africa: No actually dogs get mad and people like you are insecure. I don’t have issues with bargain basement Beyonce’s.
Alex: Awww, you just hatin’ cause I’m younger, pretty, smarter…maybe you’re just not enough.
Africa: You’re a joke
Africa calls out Alex on having a bad hair weave and Alex says she can crush Africa with her trust fund and calls her a “leasing b*tch”. Alex’s mistake is getting up in Africa’s grill because the next thing you know, hair is being pulled and Africa gets in a few punches to Alex’s back, but neither woman loses their balance in high heels. Africa walks off angrily once security gets involved and mean girl Alex just laughs it off while fixing her dress and lioness hair weave.
