Robyn and the fam roll as much as a stretching facility.

Robyn is shocked, contemplating she was resolved to easily coexisting with Candiace. Juan remains to be on the job hunt and Robyn talks about spending extra time collectively, which legit places him to sleep. LOL.
Candiace’s brunch is gorgeous, however…empty. Karen is the primary to reach, solo, as a result of she misplaced her mom a number of years in the past and Rayvin had to return New York. Candiace finally will get there and factors out the fragrance bar and the entire particular touches.

Everybody chit chats as they eat and Karen, ever the businesswoman, begins speaking about her fragrance and the way Bloomingdale’s hopped on. She invitations Nneka to the pop up and although it’s a bit cheesy, Candiace doesn’t thoughts. Candiace talks about Wendy’s absence and the way she reached out to Robyn.

Candiace desires Robyn to elucidate what she did to harm her and Robyn believes it’s self-explanatory. If you see a buddy repeatedly unfold lies a few private resolution she made that had nothing to do together with her, then there’s a difficulty. Candiace claims she didn’t say what she mentioned to be offensive, however Robyn isn’t shopping for it. Robyn is not sure who would try this to a FRIEND and Candiace calls it unfair since she had no concept Robyn was that upset at her.
Robyn will get reminded of the Juan stuff on a regular basis since everybody retains bringing it up and Candiace reminds Robyn they’re on a present about their lives. Candiace’s largest subject is that Gizelle, Robyn, and Ashley appeared to be in kahoots plotting one thing towards her husband. Candiace looks like Robyn knew what Gizelle was planning on attempting to do and Candiace is grossed out that she is pals with Gizelle after she did that to her. Candiace looks like Robyn is placing her emotions on her and they’re at a stalemate. Making up lies about husbands yields to by no means eager to be pals. Candiace leaves, disgruntled, and Robyn seems on impassive. May this actually be the final straw?
