  • Honestly, I loved it!

    Tamera accepts Tia's wager that she can't tell the truth for a whole week. Tamera is still uncomfortable around Vivica. She faces a tough choice when she sees Vivica with a man who not her dad. She tries to tell Ray, but he won't believe her. Lisa doesn't tell a council woman that she doesn't look good in her dress because she doesn't want to hurt her feelings.

    This was a great episode! I'm glad that Vivica and Ray are over. I never really liked her at all. Tamera made a good choice in telling Ray. This episode gets a 10!moreless
