I need to admit that I can't have it both ways.
On the one hand, I was disappointed in A'Keria for not owning her part in starting drama between queens and sauntering away unscathed. There's footage of it, so she may as well have owned it. (It was funny that the show mercilessly replayed it. Shade!) Instead she just seemed like a dyed-in-the-wool liar.
On the other hand, I was turned off by Brooke Lynn's callous treatment of Scarlett Envy when called out about what she said at Roscoe's. Brooke Lynn owned all of her statements (which is rational, considering that too, has been recorded). Yes, she said all the queens hated Scarlett and wanted her to leave, and no she wasn't drinking that night. She apologized for bringing other queens into it and using the word "hate", but otherwise, she stood by her statement.
So the queens took completely opposite approaches to being called out and I'm still giving side eye. Maybe, if they could have found a way to tell the truth in a funny way, like Ra'Jah (of all people) did with "a wig found it's way into my bag", that would have helped. Of course, Ra'Jah immediately reverted to rude form by throwing Ariel's wig at her feet, as if she was in the wrong for wanting her stuff back. So Ra'Jah's still gonna Ra'Jah.
Maybe, I'm just pissed off at Brooke Lynn for clearly breaking Vanjie's heart. But, she can't stay in a relationship just to make fans happy. And, I could be naive, but I don't think the romance was all engineered by Brooke Lynn just to get more screentime, as (surprise surprise), A'keria brought up as a possibility.
Whatever, I'm not overly invested in any of the frontrunners this season, and as long as Silky doesn't win, I'll be fine with the result. If Silky does somehow pull off a win, I'll do the same thing I did with the first season of Survivor when Richard won, I'll take the show off my recording schedule and never look back.
