Really enjoyed episode 1!
Unsurprisingly I agreed with a lot of @*Wallace's first thoughts here.
Fallon and Felisha were frustrating in this episode and I found it to be real weird how they acted towards the other women. Especially being that a lot of the women were big mostly in the late 90s-early 00s which honestly is not really far off of when Cherish were successful. I did check out some of the songs they'd worked on and there are a few which I really liked especially after they mentioned working on one of Tamar's records. But it was weird to me that they kinda acted as if they were above it all and they didn't need the show, when they still showed up? Aubrey's comment about them being super-successful whilst one of them was wearing a cheap bracelet from Claire's or something KILLED me
Kiely's definitely A LOT and is going to be an interesting one to watch. They were so shady making her 'highlight' in the opening of the episode her 'promithes promithes' moment though Although I do like that she can see the joke in all that now and laugh about it. But yeah it was super weird to see her want to be Creative Director. After watching it I can see both sides. If she didn't feel comfortable performing and genuinely just wanted to help, then I think it can still be good to have her on board. But I can see why some people felt a certain type of way about her taking that role when she's not on a different level to the other women.
Early on I am really liking Shamari who I am excited to see more of. I didn't really see her when she was on RHOA so I don't know what to expect quite yet, but I like what she's brought so far and I really liked Blaque back in the day. I do wonder if she'll also talk about the loss of Natina Reed, like she mentioned with Left Eye. Omggg Nivea was having some great facial expressions/moments in all the drama too.
Not sure quite yet what to think of the ladies from 702. I had no idea that Irish had a twin sister also in that group though who passed away, which was really sad to hear Aubrey of course is just always there to make good TV and I have no doubt she'll be doing the same here. I thought the idea of splitting the group up two-ways was quite a smart one, when there were very drastic differences in what all the women wanted to pursue.
