Tasha’s Daycare Business Isn’t Slapping Like She Thought It Would
Tasha thought opening up a daycare would solve all of her problems. Unfortunately for her, that is not the case at all. She is strapped for cash thanks to the daycare center and asks Tommy for help. He initially offers to give his friend some money but declines to wash his drug cash through the center because Keisha offered up her salon already.
Tasha already knows the deal and tells Tommy to be careful with Keisha, but he has the utmost faith in Holly2.0. Tasha’s money troubles are going to get exponentially worse. While closing the center, she is approached by hood local who wants her to start dishing out money to stay in the neighborhood. He clearly has no idea who he is shaking down, but Tasha also realizes this could be a potential problem.
Tasha has to think fast, and while trying to return some clothes to get some much-needed cash unsuccessfully, she bumps into former bestie Keisha. The two have a small conversation with Keisha asking about Tommy’s dead ex-girlfriend Holly. Tasha warns her to not overstep like the dead redhead and the pisses Keisha off, causing her to walk out of the department store.
Tasha and Tommy link back up, and she tells him that she really needs the money, obviously because she has to pay off the neighborhood gangsta. This time Tommy tells her no because Keisha was upset after her run-in with Tasha.
Tasha isn’t feeling the fact that Tommy chose Keisha’s box over their friendship and reminds him he was acting the same way with Holly. Tommy doesn’t take too kindly to that and kicks Tasha out of his car. BUT before all of this happened Tasha revealed some beneficial information to Tommy that he will use later to his advantage.
Tasha might be down, but she is not out yet. She encounters the local gangster once again, and he is looking for payment. Tasha informs him that she does not have his money, but does offer to push drugs for him and he agrees. He hands the daycare center owner a handful of product and walks off.
Tasha then proceeds to call one of the children’s parents we met earlier, a stripper and recruits her to help with selling the drugs. Looks like Tasha found herself a new hustle and at the same time found a way to keep the local “protection racket” happy.
