My Lemonade Squeeze Has Gone Sour

Dr. Jackie reacts to Mariah's comment that she can't understand her motives since she did not have a child.

Tonight I TRIED to bring together this group of Ladies to try a type of conflict resolution that we used in my sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha. This is designed for people who have a relationship “to come together in a private setting and resolve issues that causes sour feelings."

As the names states, we are taking a sour situation and squeezing (or ironing) out our differences with the end result: LEMONADE (sweetness). It usually involves people who have a willing mind and desire to resolve their differences.

Though tonight, I entered the lion’s den with a bunch of Debbie Doubters who felt like my attempt to make peace is already a failure. The mind is a powerful thing so I guess we were already defeated when they entered the door.

I think there are so many other things these doctors and doctor’s wives could be doing rather than bickering. I tried to maintain my peace and did a lot of deep breathing and allowed the disrespectfulness to roll off my back. Their body language screamed, “I don’t want to resolve these issues.” Why am I even trying? I live by the motto, “DO RIGHT BECAUSE IT’S RIGHT!” Yes, I am a Gandhi-like, Mother Teresa who subscribes to this philosophy.

Somehow I am accused of not understanding the pain Mariah is feeling because I have not been pregnant and physically bore a child. This is strange because then every person who has adopted a child or used a surrogate to become a mother wouldn't understand this pain. Where is it written that you have to endure a situation to understand it? I TOTALLY get that there is pain, but what I don’t get is getting stuck in the middle of pain and allowing it to control me so much that I would actually physically attack another. Some of these ladies sitting here have some form of adoption in their lives and to say that adopted or acquired parenting makes the parent unable to understand -- come on give me a break!!!

I will close hoping that conflict resolution takes place and we all can learn to get along or move along and stop making others miserable. I will say there is no way I will allow anything said tonight to steal my joy or take my power. So I’ll end by saying, when there is someone in your presence who is really insignificant in your life, we cannot give them power over us to make us unhappy, to steal our joy or to act in a way that is unbecoming of out of character and who we really are. So I end the episode with a smile on my face and hope that we will one day soon we will all get along.

Mariah Is Ready to Plant New Seeds

Mariah is over this "shady grove" but does thank some of the ladies for their honesty and friendship.

The season is finally over and Lakeisha "Mariah" HuQ is still standing! #Yaaassss

Baby I was on the hit list this season. LOL! Well I'm still here, and please know I'll be the first to tell you when I decide to BOW out gracefully. #SideEye

Regardless of what was said on the Reunion each and everyone of the ladies know I am invested in this show, and they have known my position from day one. I have apologized for many things, but I will not apologize for withholding intricate details about my ownership.

The Reunion Part 2 did not disappoint. We are still in the Shady Grove, and amongst a very shady group. . .LOL!

Let's just start with Heavenly. Heavenly: You are a very strong, opinionated, and independent woman. I find it hard to believe that you would be swayed by anyone! NOW the swaying may actually come from your "special coffee." (Wink, wink.)

Lisa Nicole: Too bad we never really had a chance to get to know one another. You seem like a great spa pal! I wish you the best. (Nodding). Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. . .

Toya: Did you not learn anything from last season? KIDS ARE OFF LIMITS!

Quad: I wish you well with your future endeavors.

Jackie: I was never offended by anything you said. I simply wanted to know your true perspective. It almost seems that you are inhibited from showing true objectivity. Not voicing any opinion leaves the impression that you co-signed into all the negativity. From my perspective, your shade was from a different type of tree. I call it the hidden bush. #ShadeTree

Simone: Regardless of what others say, I do feel as though you have been a great friend. Thank you.

This has definitely been the shadiest grove I have ever encountered, but the one thing I have learned is to recognize a tree by the fruit it bears. #BitterFruit #SourApples #Sweet&Juicy #NotRipeOrReady #Ripe&Right #RottenTotheCore

Time to plant new seeds or grow another grove!
