Those numbers tell me that many of you need a little self-care. And by “self-care,” I mean an hour a week in which you allow the combined talents of Brandy, Naturi Naughton, Nadine Velazquez and (sometimes) Eve to take you in a wave of likes. enjoy with soap. Is your hesitation because you think, now that the Season 1 finale is ahead of us – it airs on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. – that you’re too far away? You are not. Let me catch you really fast.
In the ’90s, Nasty Bitches was one of the hottest acts on MTV. The group consists of Professor Sex (real name: Brianna; played by Eve), Xplicit Lyrics (real name: Naomi; played by Brandy), Da Thrill (real name: Jill; played by Naughton), and Butter Pecan (first name) real: Valeria; played by Velazquez), and they are managed by E-Roc (real name: Eric; played by Taylor Selé).
But the group fight and a series of personal yōkai led to Bitches’ breakup, and the women didn’t really talk to each other until an up-and-coming artist named Lil Muffin (name real: Lauren; played) by Pepi Sonuga) tried out one of their old hits in her new song.

In addition, all the dramas from their lives outside of the music industry were added to the mix: drug addiction, homosexuality removedfailed relationships, cheating husbands in need of brain surgery, long-lost birth mothers who appeared and seemed like the best thing ever but then turned out to be bad old people… you know, the normal thing, things happened- mills, accumulated personal belongings of women in their 20s in the north.

You know that Eric/Naomi proposal that ABC teased hard in the promo for the episode? “You might have to wait and see what she’s thinking about that,” she says, chuckling warily. “I don’t know, that might be pushing Naomi a little too [much].
