Highlight: This is not the first time T.I. has tried to get his family in shape. We remember that episode when he spent a stack on a bike that Tiny barely rode around the block. But this time, there's $1,000 at stake, and everybody is trying to win it -- including Shekinah, who starts her workout with a strawberry milkshake in hand and ends the day with a colon cleanse to cheat the system. Too bad she lost to the kids.

Chrissy & Mr. Jones (Monday 10 p.m. ET, VH1)

"I don't know about the -- the name part. But this is your dream." --Freddie

"I might catch a couple fishes like that: 'Smell me.' " --Mama Jones

Highlight: Though Chrissy spent most of this episode handwringing over whether she's ready for motherhood, Mama Jones stole the show with her own unique motherly instincts. First, she has a brainstorming session with Freddie about her new fragrance, Pum Kash, which is inspired by all things below the belt. Next, they end up shooting the debut commercial for the perfume, which pretty much consists of Mama Jones just walking into a bar with fans blowing her newly zhooshed hair and red dress. Later, Freddie and Jimmy try to reconcile their differences from an old beef stemming from a song Freddie produced for Mama Jones in which she dissed Chrissy. The chat didn't go well. But Jim's mother still wound up smelling sweet.
