RECAP: #BloodSweatHeels “Turned Up and Kicked Out” [Episode 7]

All About The Tea_Blood, Sweat and Heels

What I love about “Blood, Sweat, and Heels” is that the producers actually focus on the fact that these are women whose careers, all at various stages of development, are important. The opening sequence is of each woman at work, building her mini-empire. Our first stop is Mica and Daisy, who looks wonderful. Daisy teases Mica’s phone friend Kevin – a marketing genius from Chicago that she met at a friend’s party in the Hamptons. Daisy talks about the CT scan she has coming up. The hope is that the “Batman and Robin” duo of the chemo and radiation has eliminated the tumors. They decide to live it up by affecting their “older Bronx males” voices and drinking ginger ale in champagne glasses. It’s hilarious.

Not so funny? Demetria and Melyssa’s lunch date, in the park. For someone getting married, we’ve heard almost no wedding news, and grueling details about this book, which is self-published and leaving Demetria with a long “to do” list. There is the rewriting, editing, planning a release party, amping up her fanbase, getting it on iTunes.  It’s wonderful that  she has the achievement to crow about, but she’s turning this show into a season long commercial for “the book.” The only thing annoying me more, right now, are the caterpillars that crawled on to Melyssa’s face, trying to suffocate her eyebrows. WTH? Her eyebrows look like they’re part of a bad disguise  kit. Demetria’s  wedding finally comes up and Melyssa is looking forward to it, hoping to find a date. Demetria wants to hook Melyssa up with a Nigerian banker friend, so Melyssa decides not to bring a date. I feel like I’m watching “Blood, Sweat, and Heels” (Atlanta).

Daisy and her friend Wendy are on the way to her check up. Daisy reads the card her father sent her. It’s very sweet and she wishes her father could be there. She knows her mother would be too stressed out to be able to help her so it’s probably glad they’re not there. I won’t keep you in suspense: the news is GOOD!  She is healthy. Daisy understated her mother’s gift for worry. Her phone rings before she can even call her mother – who is not pleased that she didn’t get a call immediately. Mom wonders if it’s possible the cancer has spread. She wonders if it could come back, and a host of other questions that are making ME nervous just listening. Daisy tells her mom that her battery is dying and then frees herself. As soon as she was able to take a drink, I hope she took at least two.

Demetria is meeting at her publicist’s office. It’s a small operation and it feels as if she is in good hands. Her publicist seemed fully focused on her event. Due to the self-publishing, Demetria has put a lot of her  own money in up front and worries about what will happen if no one buys the book.

Mica is a lot less stressed, meeting up with Kevin (a  karaoke junkie who loves performing “Thriller”).  I like them together, so far. They laugh a lot and really get each other’s sense of humor. Mica is ready for a family but after Terry is learning not to rush things. She learns that months into a relationship the “representative” goes away and you’re in a relationship with someone you don’t know. Kevin tells Mica he’s excited about them and the potential they have. Damn it to all… I want to hug this guy through my tv screen! I see a season of “Newlyweds: The First Year” for these two.

Ah, the book signing! Demetria is helping with the set up. I can’t tell if she hopes she won’t fail or if she has convinced herself that she will. She is hard on others, but it’s so  clear that she is even hard on herself. Arzo is also a tough cookie. She feels that it would be easier to tell her family about her boyfriend if he sold a hit record. He pays his share of the rent and expenses, but doesn’t pay Arzo’s expenses. Despite the fact that he is younger, he is also old-fashioned and wants to take care of her. Right now he’s locked in a contract that doesn’t favor him, as an artist. He sees success in his future, she does too.

Daisy sees a positive future for herself, but I see no hope of clearing that pile of mail from her bed. I hope those aren’t all bills, as they were the last time we saw her room. She calls  for more chemo pills, which she will have to continue taking, along with radiation treatments. At the same time, her assistant is setting up her wigs. She wore them before, because she just didn’t like to do her own hair. Now she needs them because her hair is gone. She’s afraid that it will never grow back. Rock and hard place. She is thinking of having the pills delivered to Demetria’s event so that she won’t have to miss it. She can’t miss taking her pill, not even once, so the delivery is necessary.

At the party, Demetria is happy to see people lined up at the door. Geneva and Chantelle arrive and Chantelle confuses Geneva by curtseying before her. Chantelle finds out that Greg is from Jamaica, like her family, and says he must be a “good egg.” Mica shows up  with Kevin. She doesn’t worry about him in that crowd because he’s smart – which also makes it ok that he’s shorter than her. Daisy makes it, but later steps out. Her phone is about to die and the delivery has not been made. Just as  she steps out, both Melyssa and Arzo arrive.

As the Q&A is taking place inside, Daisy is outside crying to Arzo and her boyfriend. Yestirday. She is really punishing herself for not staying home to pick up her prescription. If it’s manufactured Bravo-drama? Shame on them. My stomach is in knots thinking that she could miss a critical dose. Arzo gets how hard it is that Daisy is alone.

All About The Tea_Blood, Sweat and Heels

Inside, Chantelle is checking her make up and reflecting on how “dry” Demetria is. Mica looks like she’s due for a nap and Geneva is reading her email. Melyssa is now outside with Arzo, Daisy, and Yestirday offering to help track down the delivery.  

All About The Tea_Blood, Sweat and Heels

Mica and Chantelle begin laughing together and Demetria calls out the table out for the noise they’re making. Geneva looks away as if to clear herself from the eventual rumble. Greg comes over to ask them to keep it down and sits with them.

All About The Tea_Blood, Sweat and Heels

Outside Melyssa realizes how brave Daisy is to keep going as she deals with her health issues on her own. The small group hugs when they  learn that the delivery man is on the way. When someone says it’s like college, Daisy and Arzo joke that instead of the weed man, she’s waiting on a real drug man.

Chantelle is looking around for Arzo and hopes that they won’t get into it over Chantelle’s outfit. Joking around, bouncing the champagne glass and chanting Mica’s name, Chantelle breaks the glass. Demetria has had enough and asks Greg to handle it. Outside, Daisy is hugging the delivery guy. Inside Greg tells the giggling women that they are disrespectful, leading Mica and the returning Daisy to stand up for Chantelle.  

All About The Tea_Blood, Sweat and Heels

Chantelle takes  things too far by saying “Yes, Massa” to Greg, who tells the bouncer to get her the f-k out of there. WHOA! Daisy says that he can’t kick her out she’s preparing a question to ask and he tells her to stay out of it. YIKES! Now Geneva is upset that her guest is being ejected. Mica is standing up and is upset. This is juicy, but really messed up, folks. Chantelle? Out of control. Greg? Worse.

All About The Tea_Blood, Sweat and Heels

We end with Geneva refusing  to let Chantelle be thrown out. The women are especially upset that a security guard/bouncer was called. Demetria does not object when Melyssa brings it up to her. The publicist tells Greg it is a bad idea because it causes a scene. He couldn’t care less, he wants her gone. Socially, this is a bad night, all the way around!

About the Author

I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well.

    I have to wonder how much noise Chantelle and Mica were really making. I mean, we could kind of hear them because they were wearing microphones but could anyone else? They should have sucked it up and kept quiet unt Demetria was finished speaking. If I were Chantelle, I would have left when asked. And Geneva should have probably taken her home instead of fighting with her good friend’s fiancé. Geneva should know Demetria and Greg enough to realize neither of them have a sense of humor. And will someone please burn that horrible wig Mica was wearing. She is a beautiful woman but that wig makes her look awful.

    • Norrth

      Oh my oh MY are they humorless. There are just not people I would want to hang out with, so judgmental. Chantelle and Mica did make the events all about their own good time, but Greg took it too far.

      • Jennymckitty

        I’d hate to hang out with Greg and Demitria too. I’m anxious to see their wedding. Do you think they will show any emotion at all? It will be like watching two robots.
        I think Greg took it too far as well but I would have left if asked. I can’t believe from what was shown, they were being that loud. I don’t think we would have heard much without the mics.

        • Bad Barbie

          Do you hear how loud Mica is???????? LOL

          Look, they can be as prude and boring but if I am going to show up to support someone’s project the least that I can do is behave like I have house training that my mother taught me. Breaking glass, being super loud at a Q&A and then telling someone that i just met that he is on his period and calling him “master” is out of pocket. Chantelle has already crossed the line with her “brit humor” a few times.

          • Jennymckitty

            Yes. I agree that they shouldn’t have been goofing off. I am not trying to defend their behavior. I’m just questioning Bravo’s editing. They were both wearing mics and what I heard, through most of it, was muffled…like they were whispering. The scene also showed others…not in the cast…talking, but we couldn’t hear them. So would we have heard them had they not been wearing mics?

          • RonnieIsBack

            she actually said “massa” lol

        • RonnieIsBack

          I hope they pass out xanax for the guest bc it will be nerve wrecking..

          • Jennymckitty

            Watching them together when they were taking their engagement photos…wow.

    • Bad Barbie

      I agree with you.

      Demetria was the same chick crying for a whole season when Mica and Melissa got super drunk and loud at HER event. Which btw, was at a loud ass club with a DJ spinning. This was a Q&A, not a “party”. Would they have done the same at a library?

  • pixntrix

    Thx for the recap it didn’t record for me so I missed it

  • Great job, Norrth! Daisy’s hair and make up at Mica’s house was flawless. That’s the best I’ve ever seen her look. I love the energy of Mica and Daisy, especially when they’re together. Praying for Daisy’s continued healing. Did Greg channel Peter and his peach? Ridiculous. If they were there with men, I wonder if he’d been so tough.

    • Bad Barbie

      Mica was there with a navy dude.

      Greg did what I would expect my partner to do if I just financed my entire book publishing. These chicks have no respect. All for the free alcohol.

      • Greg is was wayyyyy too aggressive and disrespectful. Not a gentlemen make…sorry.

  • undergroundrailroadtrain

    I wish someone would take that stick out of Demetria’s a$$

    • IKR….she’s so full of herself and that fiancé of hers..God, help her.

  • Bad Barbie

    1. Whoever finds Greg was inappropriate… must be single. If my “blood, sweats and tears” were put in a project and my “friends” show up acting like this was a family bbq, I would have them removed too. Chantelle just met Greg 2 minutes ago at the door and was wild disrespectful when he first asked her to keep it down. At a Q&A, you need to STFU because you can’t hear your audience. This was not a brunch.

    2. Chantelle is trying to finesse her way into this group with too much “British humor”. When she met Melissa, she implied that Melissa was giving her “goodies” up for free. The Afghan dog comment was offensive either way you want to slice it. It involved looks and unfortunately for her, race in this instance. 3. She meets Greg at his wife’s event and tells him that he is on his period… then ends it with “yes master”. Which, to an African American may be taken as a huge insult. She is lucky that bouncer didn’t grab her by one arm and kicked her out. He could have because this was a private event. Ironically, that stick may be lost in her loose hole.

    3. If you are about that “Professional” life that you claim to be… don’t sabotage someone else’s hustle. This is not the first time they do a scene at a private event for one of the girls.

    4. Geneva. SHUT THE ENTIRE FACK UP. You spent a whole season crying about Mica and Melissa being drunk out their ass, standing on couches, and making a strip tease spectacle at your work event. Now you defending Chantelle but two seconds ago you were making signals to Demetria that it wasn’t you talking? Lol

    5. Demetria- These broads have no respect for your hustle. Cut them off and keep doing your hustle. This book was financed by you and you have every right to regulate anyone that can ruin your moment. Don’t support their ventures.

    6. Daisy- Glad that she is getting better. Baffles me that she would put herself through all that stress about her pills. next time refill before you run out girl! Weren’t you in the middle of a breakdown 2 seconds ago and now you walked in inserting yourself into the drama? Girl, have a seat.

    7. Arzo- We all need a friend like you.

    8. Melissa- we all need a friend like you too. Hold Daisy down!

    • wdg6731

      Cosign on EVERYTHING you said!! 🙂

    • Sorry BB but I’m not single and thought Greg’s behavior was a complete overreaction and ridic. He needs a chill pill.

      I agree with you on Geneva. I loathe her.

      In regards to Daisy, you can’t refill chemo pills like that. It’s a whole process. You can’t even pick them up at the pharmacy. It’s delivered to you in a very controlled high security way.

      I like Melissa, Arzo and her bf too….they’re cute together.

  • Personally, I thought Greg blew the whole thing completely out of proportion. I agree with Chantelle, Demetria is DRY!! Sorry but Demetria is very pretentious.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Extremely. I cannot wait until Chantell let her have it…

    • equinox2009

      ITA. Demetria is not a very warm personality and it seems she’s marrying someone very similar. I find her very cold and uppity! She doesn’t exude tolerance If they disinvite Geneva things will get messy

      • Totally agree! Geneva is very ghetto so her disinvite should be fun! Might even involve more police. Woohoo!

  • RonnieIsBack

    Greg was being a bitch….

  • RonnieIsBack

    Great recap North! I love this show..Mica is my fave

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    Okay, on the fence about this one. On one hand I think both Demetria & Greg need to have the sticks removed from their asses & on the other hand, I was taught better than to behave like that at someone else’s party or business event. Very declasse’ Ladies. People don’t play when their money is on the line. Anybody can understand that. & you all get that. Just think you should have checked yourselves for just a little while longer. The party was after, not during the presentation or the Q&A. Act like your Mama taught you better, cause I’m sure she did.
