During the set, the cast shared a story about how the drug dealers on the streets were extremely understanding and cooperative with the cast and crew filming on their block. The drug dealers were so accommodating, that they insisted that one of the cast members wear a very opulent and extravagant piece of jewelry while the show was filmed. The cast also revealed how their celebrity status led a car salesman to loan them a vehicle (which is against the dealerships policy) and how they ended up totaling the borrowed vehicle.
