It’s week two on the fabulous and unpredictable sisterhood journey that is ‘Girls Cruise’, and the ladies are working on some of their bonding with each other.
B. Simone and Pretty Vee meet up for breakfast and have a heart to heart, to open up more. They don’t want to be judged for being so outrageous despite their church backgrounds, but decide that they are healing people through laughter. They also want Chilli to come out of her shell a bit more.
Following Lil’ Kim‘s bonding sessions for the girl’s last week, including jetpacking in the ocean and sliding off the side of the yacht, Chilli wants to have a more relaxed approach to bonding, and opts for some massage therapy with Mya.
During the session, they joke about being small breasted. “I don’t have much — itty-bitty-titty community”, Mya laughs. “You can be part of the titty-less crew”, Chilli jests. Chilli recalls that the last time she met Mya, she wasn’t greeted very openly, with a half-hearted hug. “You don’t give good hugs! You gave me that old janky hug”, Chilli tells Mya.
“Let me give you a real hug! A Chilli hug”. “Really?”, Mya replies, surprisingly. “I had some pins in my wardrobe and I didn’t want to prick myself”. “With Mya’s goal in wanting to grow in sistership, we’re gonna start with these hugs”, Chilli tells the camera.
“I didn’t know there was a specific way that women were supposed to hug each other or is there some code?”, Mya questions. “This is why I don’t do girl group situations! I’m misunderstood all the time”, she jokes.
Lil’ Kim and Chilli later call home to speak to their children, whom they miss dearly on the trip. In the meantime, Rome, the fun director, announces that the crew are heading to Oistin’s tonight, where the town is holding it’s annual fish festival event.
Rome asks Mya for a big favor — to perform tonight at Oistins, last-minute, without any preparations or soundchecks. Mya reluctantly agrees. “I’ve gotta let go a little bit, and try new things”, Mya says.
The crew head down to the Oistins fish festival, and before going to the music venue, they take part in some bull-riding! Chilli coaches Rome to use his abs to stay on the rodeo.
After the boys are done on the bull, Mya explains she’s too focused on her performance to party.
Rome encourages the ladies to get on the dancefloor to show him some sexy moves. “Did somebody say Chilli?”, Rome asks. He persuades Chilli to dance with him, and she doesn’t disappoint!
“Chilli can be so conservative at times”, Lil’ Kim states. “But I know if can get her to open up a little bit, I know that she’s going to be super lit”.
“This right here is a gift from baby black Jesus”, B. Simone jokes. “I’m so happy to see this TLC Chilli that I grew up with”. “Now, I might not be up for everything that Kim wants us to do on this trip”, Chilli confesses, “but when it comes to dancing, it’s some love right there”.
Mya is ready for her big performance. But as she gets started on stage, performing her song, “Falling“, from the Moodring album, the power suddenly cuts out!
“This is why I was hesitant to perform in the first place”, Mya states, disapprovingly. The event technicians quickly come to her aid and fix the power situation. Mya continues for round 2 of her performance and wowed the audience.
After her performance, Mya thanks everybody and invites the rest of the ladies to join her on stage. “We’ve got Chilli from the legendary TLC in the house tonight!”, Mya screams. “Lil’ Kim the OG.. my girl Pretty Vee.. my girl B. Simone, we’ve got Charly..”, Mya continues.
“And Lil’ Kim’s right hand girl, right here”, Mya says when introducing Tiffany, seeming to have forgotten her name. “I’m gonna let Kim introduce her B.F.F”, Mya says and hands Lil’ Kim the mic to say Tiffany’s name.
The crew seem to get worked up over the name mishap. The following morning, Chilli tells Pretty Vee and B. Simone how great the night was. Pretty Vee highlights Mya’s mistake.
“Are you sure she forgot her name?” Chilli questions. “She played it off, though. Kim, you introduce your bestie. It made it more special”.
“I don’t believe Mya intentionally forgot her name”, Chilli states. “If we all want to connect as sisters, we shouldn’t jump to conclusions. We’ll see”.
The crew head out for a guided tour of Barbados to see where Kim’s long-time friend, superstar Rihanna used to live. Accompanied by drinks free from the devil’s juice!
After locating Rihanna’s house and talking to people who grew up with her, they took photos together and got back in their rides.
On the drive back, Lil’ Kim questions Mya on how she handled leaving Tiffany out of her shout outs at the show last night. Mya insists she didn’t forget Tiffany’s name, she was just not sure how to address her.
“You gotta explain to me what was going through your mind”, Lil’ Kim asks Mya. “When I called you to the stage, it was the legendary Lil’ Kim”, Mya says. “I felt like after everybody was introduced, you should have taken the mic and said something because everybody was excited to see you”.
Mya informs Kim she wanted her to introduce her own friend because it was special. Kim asked her about introducing Charly. “But he’s a guy. It’s different — to me”, Mya replies.
Kim felt like not addressing Tiffany singled her out. “I think you need to talk to Tiffany and create a bond”, Kim suggests. “We don’t want it to get to the next level”.
“Mya has never had sisterhood, so I don’t think she knows how to handle the situation”.
Do you think Mya forgot Tiffany’s name or just wanted Kim to address her own friend?
