First of all, the BIG news on Little Women: Atlanta — Minnie is pregnant! The reality star hinted at her big news when I interviewed her last week, and today a source close to the show confirmed the pregnancy. Congrats Minnie, best wishes to you and your baby!
On to this week’s recap, Little Women: Atlanta Episode 3. This week, the Tiny Twins cause BIG trouble!
The week starts off in a barn. Emily grew up as a competitive equestrian, and while she hasn’t been able to ride since she moved to Atlanta, she’s eager to return to her love of stallion-mounting. Confident Emily reveals that because of her size, people have always tried to put her on ponies, but she’s always been determined to make it work, and succeed.
You go girl! You ride a big-ass horse because you reign as the Queen of the ring! (or can I throw in a little horse humor and say that “you rein”) I, however, will ride the pony. JK, I would totally break a pony.
Emily tells Bri that their height (especially with their shorter legs and different centers of gravity) makes riding a challenge for people of short stature. But she still wants to share her love for horses with the other girls and plans a day of riding for the entire group. I think this challenge is a great way to encourage her friends to try something new.
Minnie and her mom Tamie get pedicures. (We saw this same scene with Kristy and her mom in LW:LA.) I love mother-daughter time! The twins arrive too, and Minnie tells them about her verbal fight with Juicy. (Read some of the fight’s lowlights here.) Minnie says she’s going to play it cool the next time she sees Juicy.
Minnie says “What the hell?” about Emily’s pregnancy announcement and the twins still think Emily is lying.
Minnie laughs that she doesn’t care, “As long as Minnie ain’t pregnant.”
“Amen!” says her mom. “Cause I ain’t trying to be no Grammaw.”
(Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm…………………… see above.)
After releasing their “Bridled” passion, Emily and Bri go shopping. Emily and Lontel are still on rocky terms, but Emily is confident that he’ll eventually get excited about their baby. Bri thinks Emily is toxic and their relationship can’t be fixed. Emily thinks that Bri shouldn’t talk, she and her own baby daddy, Wooda, aren’t together either, but they live together.
FYI-I’m digging how the twin’s hair looks when it’s pulled back! It’s too cute.
Minnie has decide to let Morlin become her love-in lover, and today’s moving-in day! Every time I get the itch to move, I need only to watch other people move to remember that moving sucks. Monie is learning the beauty basics at Minnie’s salon and in the meantime, she wants Morlin to pay her bills and give her an allowance until she becomes a working voice over artist. There are so many incorrect life choices happening in the above sentence that it makes me cringe!
The twins arrive at Emily’s house bearing gifts for Emily’s baby. Awww! They look like they’re trying to make amends with Emily, but double trouble is actually snooping. The twins still don’t think that she’s pregnant, but if she is, “that gives up more jobs,” they laugh. (How the hell far away did the twins park from Emily’s house? They’re walking for what seems like a million hours! Or do they live around the block in a convenient-for-filming enclave?) Emily is touched that the girls brought her gifts, but she knows that the twins have shady motives. Emily isn’t going to work as much as she has been, “I’m not going to advertise as “Right Cheek … and bump.” Although I think it’s got a nice ring to it.
And then Emily invites the twins to go horseback riding. Their faces be like 😨😨… Because who goes horseback riding when you’re pregnant? Ummm, Mary did and her son turned out pretty well. Maybe you’ve heard of him?
The twins still think it’s shady and they leave. And they begin their Loooooog walk either home or to their inconveniently parked car.
Bri wants Wooda. She wants to be in a relationship with her son’s father, but he isn’t interested in more. Wooda says that they’ve both cheated and they aren’t loyal. Bri wants to be a family, for Malik’s sake, but Wooda doesn’t think he can give it to her. This seems to be his blessing that Bri is free to pursue another relationship. Wooda confuses me, is he really high?
How can you act like such a schmuck with cameras pointing at you? This is a permanent record that women forever and ever will be able to find that will warn them that you are not a good relationship partner. So if your future woman is wondering, “Hmm, I’ll ask the internet if Wooda is a the right guy for me to date,” she will find this article and my words will reach out to her like the mist of a ghost and beg, “Don’t do it sister!”
Bri, Emily and Minnie head out to the club. Minnie is surprised that Bri is out but Bri insists that she is single and ready to mingle. “Your mind’ll be open, and Miss Kitty’ll be closed.” Minni says that her relationship with Pastor Troy is over and she’s looking for love. Emily still thinks that the timing of the breakup is still shady.
All of the girls like tall men and list some of their pet peeves with average-sized men. They hate when men pat them on the head, tell them they’re cute, or bend over and talk to them like they’re children. Happily, two bearded hotties come over, and one is LOL. When they head out to the floor to dance with them, Bri meets another man named Andre, who asks her out.
The next day, Minnie arrives at work and the salon’s owner tells her that Monie’s been there for 30 minutes and hadn’t done any work. Today’s the day that Paula is evaluating her work performance. Monie admits that this isn’t her dream job, and Paula wants only people passionate about becoming hairstylists working at the salon. So Paula fires her. And Monie leaves with a few parting shots, which is mortifying to Minnie! Isn’t this the salon where Monie gets her hair done? Or where she used to get her hair done?
Minnie picks up the twins for a job interview. Now I get it, the twins don’t have their drivers licenses, so that’s why they were walking to Emily’s house. Thanks TV, for that bit of info. 😉 The club that they’re interviewing at is Boogalou, a place where The Cheeks also do promotion. (and by promotion, I mean twerking atop the bar.)
The meet the club’s manager and floor manager. The club features bar-side swings and before long, the Tiny Twins are encouraged to hop up and “Show us what you got!” After some awkward climbing, (let’s be honest, it was A LOT of awkwardness) they t-werk it. And it is even more awkward to have two women enthusiastically admiring the twerking of two women whom they’ve just met. Apparently the two women that the twins have met with are powerless, because they have to check with the bar’s owner before hiring them. Which is nonsense. Hire them, let them do their jobs — which is to make horny guys buy more alcohol.
Back at Bri’s, somebody’s getting glam. Wooda’s not thrilled that Bri going on her date with Andre. In fact, he admits that he’s a little jealous, but says that since he “explores,” he can’t hate on Bri for exploring a new relationship too. Wooda says, “I’m gonna hate from a distance and wait … Works every time.”
Bri and Andrea meet for their date and ride the Ferris Wheel at Skyview Atlanta. Bri hopes that Andre doesn’t have a little person fetish and tells Andre about her complicated relationship with Wooda. She also reminds us of the heartbreaking loss of her father when she was 9. Andre is trying waaay too hard, but his heart seems to be in the right place. Or he wants to be on TV. But Bri isn’t ready for a second date … yet.
It’s horseback riding day! Bri is excited to share this part of her world with the other women. But first, Emily tells Bri that the Tiny Twins went to Boogalou trying to get booked. The other women arrive (wearing their best flannels and bandanas) and reconsider riding. After some light-hearted music to make their mounting struggles less humiliating, they’re all astride their mighty steeds. And Andrea is wearing an extremely ill-fitting helmet. After their rides, Emily shows them how amazing she is on a horse. But it’s not bragging, she’s really talented! The twins still can’t believe that horse-riding Emily is pregnant and they have a plan to make her prove it.
Horseback riding has left the ladies famished, so they settle in along a river for a picnic. The twins reveal that they’ve been hired at Boogalou and that it was Minnie who set up their interview. The Cheeks are pissed that Minnie is trying to give away their gigs, but first they want to set the twins straight. But the Twins strike first and whip out a pregnancy test.
They challenge Emily to prove her pregnancy and Emily is happy to oblige. One of the twins comes with her to the outhouse to watch her tinkle.
“This is a very interesting picnic,” says Bri. My thoughts exactly! But now, I can’t stop worrying about where Emily is going to wash her hands! The river? Maybe someone has their diaper bag and can pull out a wipe?
Emily returns triumphant. “Boom bitch!” she exclaims, slamming down the easy-to-read digital test. We saw Episode 2’s ultrasounds, so this isn’t a surprise, but the twins finally admit defeat (I still love their hair pulled back.)
What did you think of this week’s episode? Are the Tiny Twins double trouble? Have they been served humble pie now that Emily has proven that she’s pregnant? What is your reaction to Minnie being pregnant?
