"Mama Drama" is the 5th episode of Season 3 of Little Women: Atlanta, and the 30th episode of the series overall.


Tanya reveals the truth about her relationship with Nico. Juicy invites the ladies to the taping of the pilot for her TV show. Andrea shares some news with Amanda that could divide their family.


The episode begins with some footage of what happened at the end of the previous episode. The group and their dates are at a restaurant so that they can all meet Tanya's ex, Nico. Things got heated, so Nico and Tanya leave the restaurant. Andrea's boyfriend Chris gets up and acts as if he's going to fight Nico, and storms out of the restaurant. All of the ladies dates run after Chris, and attempt to hold him back from fighting. When Chris goes outside, Nico and Tanya are far away in the parking lot, and an altercation doesn't take place. In the commentary, Tanya says that evening was supposed to consist of a nice dinner so that everyone could meet Nico, and it was disrespectful how everyone was hounding her with questions about she and Nico's relationship. Back at the restaurant, everybody sits back down at the table. Andrea was mad with Tanya, and finds it unfair how no one can talk about Nico and Tanya's relationship, but no one can talk about hers. Juicy says that she had no idea that asking Nico and Tanya about their relationship would ruin their night. Sam says that everyone says things that they don't mean.

Monie, Andrea, Amanda, and Minnie are on their way to Alabama, because they were invited to a Rickey Smiley Morning Show event there. On the ride there, they talk about what happened at the dinner. One of the twins say that Tanya wants a relationship, but Nico doesn't, and one could tell how much Tanya is into Nico. Minnie says that Tanya let her emotions get the best of her. Andrea points out how when she would ask Tanya questions, Tanya would get an attitude with her, and she doesn't know why she was getting heated up. Monie tells the ladies that they should look at the situation through Tanya's perspective and see that she wants to be in a relationship like almost all of the ladies in the group, but Nico doesn't want to give her that at the moment. She says that Tanya and Nico were out of line at the restaurant, but Tanya is going through something with Nico and needs their support, not their anger.

Tanya and Sam go to the park together and talk about what happened at the dinner. Tanya says that she wasn't expecting a lot of drama to happen at the dinner. She points out how Minnie's boyfriend Gary told Nico that he left Tanya, when in reality he didn't. She felt like Andrea was trying to throw the "bad father card" on Nico to take the heat off of her boyfriend Chris, and what's going on with her and Nico is no one's business, and she really doesn't tell the world her business. Then, Tanya decides to tell Sam the full story about her and Nico.

When Tanya was with Devon (a few years before), she and Nico weren't speaking at the time. She was going to New York for work, so she and Nico met up because she needed a security guard. She was a dancing at the time, and she didn't want to go to the clubs by herself. She eventually got pregnant (with her son Jaidan), and she thought that the baby was Devon's. She didn't want to tell Devon that the baby wasn't his because


she was scared that she'd lose him, he'd find out that she was with someone else, and she'd be a single mom. Tanya wishes that when she found out that she was pregnant she told Devon the truth. When she was living with Devon, she wasn't in the right headspace. Devon wasn't paying her any mind, and Nico was in the right place at the wrong time. She had Devon believing that her son Jaidan was his up until he was born. Nico told Tanya that her baby looks just like him, and he wanted to get a DNA test. Tanya agreed to have her son do the DNA test with Nico, but she thought that Nico wasn't her son's father. Looking back, Tanya was in denial of her son being Nico's because she didn't want him to be. When Nico called her and told her the results, Tanya felt like she was having a heart attack. She will never forget the moment that she told Devon that her son wasn't his.

Tanya doesn't have any feelings against Nico or Devon, and she wants them to be the best dads they can be, because her kids deserve the best. Everything makes sense to Sam, and she had no idea how much of a roller-coaster ride Tanya has been through with Nico.

The twins, Minnie, and Monie are in Alabama, and they make it to the Rickey Smiley Morning Show event with Juicy. The Rickey Smiley Morning Show is a national syndicated radio show, and it's the number one show in Atlanta. At the event, there are hundreds of spectators. Rickey Smiley calls the ladies on stage one at a time, and the crowd loves them. They dance and frolic on stage. The ladies also take pictures with fans. After that, the ladies go backstage with Rickey Smiley. Rickey talks to Ms.Juicy about how she should be doing more television related things. Juicy says that she's working on it, and she's been thinking about making her sex talk radio show a bigger thing. Rickey suggests that Juicy should make her show into a TV pilot.

Back in Atlanta, Minnie and Sam go shopping at a boutique store. Sam asks Minnie how things are going between her and Gary. Minnie says that things are going well, and she's just taking things slow with him. She says that she's been hurt many times before and she has always had a "wall, and you never know if a man has a fetish. Sam says she feels like Gary is a good guy, but his attitude can rub people the wrong way. She points out how Gary was on Nico and Tanya's cas at the dinner. She says Gary was drinking and not caring about what he said. Minnie says that she didn't tell Gary to say anything, and Sam shouldn't judge Gary off of one experience. Sam says she feels like everyone should take a step back off of Tanya since she has a lot going on emotionally with her kids being gone. She points out how the twins seemed concerned, but they expressed it the wrong way.

Juicy meets up with a producer to make her "Juicy Talk" talk show into a TV pilot. The producer shows Juicy where the show will be recorded, then she and Juicy sit down and discuss what Juicy's show will be about. Juicy tells the producer the name of her show, and tells her that it's a sex talk show where she is a sex expert. The producer says that doing a TV show is different than doing a radio, and it's important that Juicy gets a new image by changing her hair and wardrobe. Juicy says she can't do that because red is her signature hair color. In the commentary, Juicy says that she isn't going to change her look overnight. People know and love her for who she is and they don't want "Ms. Juicy 2.0". The producer asks Juicy if she's going to send a script to her and the staff. Juicy says the point of the show is for people to be comfortable and experience the unexpected. The producer says that a script will add some structure to the show. Juicy says that she's confident that her show will be successful and she knows how to keep it real.

Amanda is shown in her apartment cleaning up. Andrea shows up to Amanda's apartment with Aubrey. Andrea tells Amanda that she wants to talk to her. She tells her that she and Chris had a talk, and he left. Andrea says throughout her five-year relationship with Chris they have had a lot of problems but this time he's not coming back. Amanda asks Andrea how she feels about that. Andrea begins to cry. She says that it hurts, but it's all about what's best for her and Chris, and she needs to focus on Aubrey. Amanda feels that Andrea doesn't need Chris, and he's just making her life miserable. Amanda asks Andrea if she told their mom that she broke up with Chris. Andrea says she doesn't want to tell her because she knows she's going to preach to her. Amanda says that they need to focus on being the Tiny Twinz, and she can't let Chris hold her back from anything. She tells her that she needs to focus on herself. The two share a hug.

Monie goes over to Tanya's house to discuss what happened at the dinner. Tanya says she just wanted to have a good night with everybody and it turned into a battle every time Nico would try to say something to someone. Monie apologizes to Tanya for not standing up for Tanya that night. She thought that if she did that, it would cause more drama. Tanya accepts Monie's apology, but she says that she's still upset with the rest of the group because they were completely out of line. Monie tells Tanya to look at the bantering as love, and the girls didn't mean any harm. Monie says when you mix little people with big drinks there will be drama, and points out how Juicy was being her old instigating self. Then, Monie tells Tanya that Juicy will be filming her TV pilot, and she wants all of the ladies to be in attendance. Tanya says she does';t know if she wants to go, because no one was supporting her at the dinner. Monie says that Tanya should give the ladies a second chance. Tanya agrees to go, and guesses that she'll be the bigger person.

It is the day of Juicy's pilot taping. Gary Wit Da Tea (from The Rickey Smiley Morning Show) is the co-host of Juicy's pilot. All of the ladies arrive to the studio.

She also points out how it's the first time the group has gotten together since the dinner. She asks the ladies why they were asking she and Nico all kinds of questions which didn't concern them. Andrea says that she got heated up because she went through the same thing with Chris, and everyone is going to be questioned. in the commentary, Tanya says that the girls aren't getting why she was getting upset and will never understand the situation unless she tells them.

Amanda sends her love to her mother and hangs up. In Amanda's apartment, Jordan asks Amanda what happened.
