In last night’s episode of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta, Deb takes it upon herself to meet with Bow Wow’s father (behind his back). Was that the best decision? An unwanted guest arrives to Reginae’s birthday dinner and a fight breaks out. Bow Wow’s daughter comes to visit to help him focus. Will it work? Keep reading for a recap.
Deb Meets with Alfonso
Attempting to bring Bow Wow and his father back together, Deb met with Alfonso to talk. With a little twinkle in her eye, she said, “Wow, you look so good.” She wasn’t lying. Alfonso is surely an older version of Bow Wow.
He wants to reconcile with his son but is bitter about Bow Wow not helping him. Even though he’s not 100% sober, Deb still thinks it’s a good idea to reunite the two.
Da Brat thinks it’s a terrible idea! With Bow’s current inability to focus, this is the last distraction he needs. Deb says she’ll marinate on it. But knowing Deb, this isn’t the last we’ve heard of this.
Princess Shai Visits
Missing his daughter Shai — and her mother Joie — terribly, Bow asks them to visit. Although hesitant at first, Joie eventually agrees to come for a weekend. When they arrive, Bow has a full set up for his daughter, as he should. She enjoys playing while mom and dad talk.
Joie asks Bow how things have been, and he admits he has only been in the studio one time since being in Atlanta. Shocked and disappointed, she tells him that’s unacceptable. She tells him if he says he’s going to do something, then he needs to do it.
The two discuss the possibility of giving their relationship another chance, but Joie is weary. Hopefully Shad can prove he’s ready this time.
Bow wants Reginae and Brandon to squash their beef. He decides to throw Reginae a 18th birthday dinner and invites Brandon. Ayana tells Bow she doesn’t think it’s a good idea, and she is right, but we need the mess!
Already irritated he is there, Reginae asks Brandon if he’s coming to her party. After a seesaw game of “it depends”, Reginae told Brandon he owes her an apology. To which he responded, “When something is meant, I don’t think that there should be an apology for it.”
Reginae tries to confirm that he meant he works with people who could have helped her father’s career. When he corrected her by saying, “I’m Brandon Barnes. I am a developer. And I could have possibly helped your father’s career.”
