One man's trash is another's read. 

In this episode, Major and Lise say rest in peace to the non-ashy patriarch of a Black TV family and a queen who was in charge of the girls. The ladies also discuss Serena's fairytale nuptials, the broken marriage and engagement of two supreme vocalists and more in the Bold and the Baeless, Tia has baby news, homage to wrestling's pretty boy, cool runnings in real life, the GA dome demolition, and not cancelling Gabby Douglas in Balls and All, Politikin' sees 45 find a worthy foe in a big baller, Alabama is on the fence about molestation, SNL and the AMAs were Must See TV, Baduism is 20 years old, the internet remains in tact despite Nicki's recent cover, whether Meek has to be a hero to be free, Jay-Z in the 'Ville, and much more. 

A new segment is introduced, Moisturize Your Opinions, and Lise finds her own ashy spots. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies talk gratefulness and the difficulties of navigating the holiday. 

A TN teacher who can't respect a child's religion and person burns Lise's biscuits, a game makes it fun to say don't touch my hair, the Geek Corner is full to capacity, and listeners feedback on the Sexiest Man Alive leaves us wanting more...or just anyone else.

What More Do You Want From Us? 

In this episode, Major and Lise promise our thoughts and actions for those lost in attacks in New York and Texas, Bold and the Baeless has Mary J's vocal leaving folks unemployed, one Braxton sister's marriage is ending and another is in taking flight with love, a film about Flint feels premature, whose vocals can honor Whitney, We Gettin' Old but American Gangster has aged well, Tina and Chrisette are not going to make choice-shaming or fetch happen, #JusticeForJazzy, why we haven't one tear to shed for a certain pizza papa, and much more.

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies talk Tyrese's social media spiral and how emotional manipulation shows up on our timelines and in our lives. 

The hypocrisy of praising Diddy while punishing Ciara burns Major's biscuits and Lise's are likewise crispy for the saints who can't let a first lady enjoy Halloween. A great new book full of historical Black girl magic and beauty queens highlighting the ugliness of abuse get our Love Offering. A cypher worthy of curating and a superhero warrior woman are everything in the Geek Corner. 

A young woman leading the fifth generation of a legacy over 100 years in the making is the GRITS We Love.
