JP’s mother Bambi comes to visit her son and Farah in New York so she can go to the One Life to Live fan luncheon. Farah thinks Bambi has high expectations of her and she wants to make a good impression. There’s clearly tension between the women though, especially when Bambi shows up with her own pillows and milk. Before the event, Bambi micromanages her son and encourages him to wear his pajama pants. Farah is livid because she is trying to get him to break his habit of wearing them out of the house. She wants him to grow up and for Bambi to let her son go.
At the fan event, Bambi sits down and signs autographs next to JP and Farah, who greet their biggest fans. Bambi tells stories about giving birth to her son. Mortified by her behavior, Farah assumes Bambi is jealous of her. Back at the house, Bambi privately questions her son about his move to L.A. She’s concerned Farah is coercing him.
Over at Nadia and Brandon’s house, Nadia’s mother cooks for them and Nadia’s brothers. Brandon eats before everyone else sits down, which upsets Nadia’s mom.

Brandon is visibly offended, but says he just has to let it go. On another day, Nadia tells her mother she wants to set her up on a date. However, Nadia’s mom thinks her daughter has bad taste in men, besides she’s still in love with Nadia’s deceased father. She then tells Nadia she doesn’t like the way Brandon treats her. She jokingly tells Nadia she will kill her herself if she marries Brandon and has kids with him. He is not the right person. Later, when Nadia tells Brandon her mother was criticizing him, he says he only cares what she thinks. He knows he’ll never be good enough for Mama, but in an attempt to make nice, he brings her flowers. It doesn’t help though because Nadia’s mother tells him he is immature and has no class. He will never make a good husband.
