When Jasmine and Rodney catch up with Karlie Redd and Yung Joc, they confront the pair about the rumors they've supposedly been spreading around town about them as well as their business with Kirk. When Jasmine asks if Joc ever said that he had sex with her, the rapper reveals that although he remembers having sex with a woman named Jasmine, he cannot say for sure that it was her. This answer doesn’t satisfy Rodney. In a show of disrespect, Rodney then alludes to having relations with Joc’s baby's mother and when Jasmine tells Karlie to delete the pictures of her child, Karlie dares Jasmine to make her, and all hell breaks loose. Jasmine attempts to attack Karlie before security intervenes.
Treasure contacts Tommie to make amends but things quickly go awry as Tommie seems in no rush to be friends. As the situation continues to escalate, Tommie begins to throw fruit at Treasure, prompting a scuffle between the two. Tommie, who is no stranger to violence, says that Treasure had it coming. Considering Treasure is new in town she should be leery of crossing her, according to Tommie. This fight involving fruit ends all hope for the two to find common ground.
