Dr. Jackie thinks the fight could have been avoided by both of the women.

I believe this fight could have been avoided if they had exercised open communication and let go of "who's right"! I'm not convinced who is right, but I definitely know whose wrong. . .BOTH!!!

I acknowledge that Mariah was extremely upset with Toya for disclosing that Lauren was adopted, but in Mariah’s words “No Tea, No Shade”! If you don’t spill the tea, no one can throw shade. I think Toya can agree that was not her story to share. Neither Toya nor Mariah will concede that they both created this situation. Ladies you have to own your part in the epic fail! When tempers are flaring, it is difficult to make a case that I did no wrong!!!

WALK AWAY! In Toya’s case, I think approaching Mariah in the presence of others and at a party was probably bad timing. I am still confused on the purpose for pulling Mariah away, in that moment, to make comments about her mother. Toya should have avoided both. This is not complicated, simply put one foot in front of the other and take steps in the opposite direction and continue walking. These are simple lessons we teach our kids, but we fail to practice what we preach. In Mariah's case, why touch another woman? Why flick another person's hair when tempers are flaring. I am still in a state of shock that "THE QUEEN B", the leader of the pack, would raise her hand to touch another. Both of their actions was a set up for failure and guess in this case for FIGHTING!!! I still am sitting in a state of shock!!!!
