For this week’s episode, Shanti talks about an upcoming vending event at Broccoli City Festival while Antoinette recounts with pride the 8th-grade graduation of her godson.

For pop culture, we beam over Victoria Monét’s newest music video release, and question if there is a silent beef between Rihanna and Beyoncé as they continue to promote their hair care lines. Our eyebrows raised as the latest Fenty hair review came from someone in Beyonce’s own camp. Join us…
