On last week’s episode of Hollywood Exes on VH1, Jessica and Sheree fought in Palm Springs—does tension carry over in Hollywood? Also, Mayte sees a fertility specialist–and her bad news results in an emotional showdown between her and Jessica.
Drea goes on a date with Percy and tells him all about Jessica and Sheree’s fight. The whole “unfiltered, that’s just Jessica” thing is wearing thin on Drea. Percy switches gears and asks where Drea thinks their relationship is heading—because he wants her to give it up! Points for honesty?
Sheree and Jessica talk about their fight. Jessica shared her abortion with the ladies to grow closer with them and felt upset that it was used against her. Sheree is disappointed how intense their fight was. They start to make up and all seems to be going well…until Jessica brings up the Bible, and you know, how fake it is. Sheree makes a prune face, but drops it for now.
Nicole goes house shopping. Zzzzzz. At least we see that Nicole got a lot of money in her divorce from Eddie Murphy.
Mayte goes to a fertility clinic and wants to talk about her future–but unfortunately she has to talk about her past first. She discusses her two pregnancies (she carried one to term and one was a partial molar pregnancy). They talk about her options in freezing her eggs, and the success rate isn’t great from women over 35. Later, she meets Drea and Sheree and talks about she was hurt with how cavalier Jessica was when talking about her abortion, especially when Mayte desperately wants a baby. The ladies agree with Mayte that Jessica was being insensitive.
Jessica has a revealing conversation with her daughter about her abortion–how she was just 17, how she was taken to a back-alley abortion clinic in which she was awake the whole time, and how scared she was. Jessica admits she had some complications after the abortion resulting in a few miscarriages, and she is so thankful she was able to carry Josie to term.
The ladies then go out for drinks, and Mayte is visibly uncomfortable around Jessica and decides to confront her. She tells her that she was bothered with how nonchalant Jessica was talking about her abortion. Nicole asks her if she’s against abortion, and Mayte says no, not necessarily. Jessica then interjects, “so it’s OK for other people to have abortions but not me”? Ai dios mio. Mayte is stunned with how Jessica cannot recognize that this a sensitive topic for Mayte. Jessica’s response: “I’m sorry that you have some issues,” “you’re a little crazy,” and then asks Mayte if she would like to leave. At this point, I can hear a ticking time bomb through my TV. Mayte explodes. She throws a drink. Drea and Sheree feel Jessica was antagonizing and insensitive and empathize with Mayte. Nicole says Jessica reached out to Mayte several times before to talk and was ignored, so she thinks Jessica was in the right.
Did Jessica push Mayte to the brink? Was Mayte wrong to throw a drink regardless? Whose side are you on: Jessica or Mayte?
