(The Root) — Monday night was full of fighting and crying. Whether it was brawls between grown women, little boys or between a woman and a man acting like a “little boy,” everybody ended up in tears.

“You don’t sit there and keep provoking a person who’s trying to give you the olive branch. And for this b—- to do that, it hurts me.” —Jackie
“Initially I thought Jackie had on a onesie. She looked like a hooker from the 1800s.” —Laura
“Pray for her after you done put your foot in her ass or in her mouth.” —Laura
Highlights: Last episode, we were left hanging. Did Jackie beat Draya’s narrow behind? Or did Draya beat Jackie’s “old, washed-up” self? We didn’t know. When this episode begins, we find out. Neither. Somebody swung, but nobody made contact. Welp. That’s the end of that, or so we think. Jackie won’t let it go. She brings it back up at new girl Bambi’s performance. Bambi’s a rapper, didn’t you know?
And Jackie’s a thug, at least for the 15 minutes it takes her to get into her newest emotional outbreak. While watching Bambi’s glitter-clad twerk team dance around the stage, Jackie is reminded of her mother and has a breakdown. After Malaysia wipes away her tears, Jackie’s back to dancing! Yay! This isn’t Basketball Wives L.A.; it’s the Jackie Christie Show.
