Now that Cynthia and D’Andre are officially engaged, their relationship is on-off – then on again as Cynthia is still learning what it means to trust a man. In addition to Cynthia’s up and down relationship with D’Andre (he wants to move away to another city), as Allison had alluded to her mother having an addictive personality (smoking and drinking), she too has addictive traits. Allison has spent a lot of her money paying off tons of credit card debt but now that she doesn’t have those bills, her new addiction is that she likes to gamble and her money is being siphoned away by slot machines, lottery tickets and every other game of chance, which brings some conflict into the home. Meanwhile, Elliot Ross is interspersed as a potential love-interest of Allison. Allison abruptly announces that she is going to move out of the family home.
Deniece finally has enough credit hours to graduate from college. She’s excited about the prospect of going on to post-graduate school – maybe law school. After applying to a major law school, all of her energy and excitement is deflated when she receives a letter that she was not accepted into law school – the same week of her birthday. The other sisters had been planning a big birthday party for her but now she begins to sink into depression. Aunt Connie encourages her to keep her head up – that even with disappointments and setbacks, you have to keep living and keep on trying. Don’t let one setback throw your life off track. Deniece finally gets it.
Vivian is trying to get her paperwork together to take her GED and then begin preparation for college. Deniece helps her with all of the tons of papers she has to fill out, only to find out that she doesn’t qualify for financial aid because she makes too much money from her job in addition to the money that she recently inherited. Vivian abruptly quits her job and decides that she is going to Paris, France to finally treat herself with a vacation, shopping, dining, etc to find some personal fulfillment. She meets and is wooed by a younger Parisian man that she thinks she is in love with. After Vivian is back home and her sisters hate his guts – they say he’s just using her for her money (she buys him gifts and wires him money and drives up the phone bill, then she flies him from Paris to meet the Walkers). When she brings up marriage, what her sisters have been saying proves to be true – he didn’t love her at all.
