Sometimes, grown ass men have to do things that don’t want to do.
Season 1 of Survivor’s Remorse highlighted Cam Calloway’s journey from the hood in Boston to NBA stardom. His cousin Reggie, as his manager, worked out a major free agent deal in Atlanta. His adjustments to the high life continues in the season 2 premiere.
Bigger houses, bigger paychecks, and contractual obligations made for an interesting, yet hilarious opening episode to the season.
Cam and his family moved into a new mansion in Buckhead, thanks to M-Chuck and her ratchet ways. Who knew that throwing lawn chairs off of condo roofs could result in a need to upgrade your housing (complete with their own house manager)? While surveying their new living arrangements, Cam complains about his mandatory attendance at a team charity event. Reggie reminds him that for 25 calendar days out of the year, his presence is requested by the owner Jimmy Flaherty to make the team look good, or else he gets fined 50k. Cam has no interest in going bowling (he’s bugging btw, bowling is dope), as he’d rather concentrate his time on actual basketball activities. He goes to the event at the request of Reggie and his family, and (to him) his worst fears are realized.
Cam is surrounded the whole event by drunken season ticket holders, who either request pictures (while confusing him for other players), give him tips to get better, or request that he lectures their family members on the dangers of drug use. Flaherty calls Cam over with a two finger wave, and that was the final straw. Cam leaves the event pissed and wants nothing to do with activities that doesn’t involve basketball.
Reggie’s wife Missy, ever the Afrocentric conscious sister, smashed a black caricature lawn Gnome left by the previous owners of Cam’s new mansion. She gets into a conversation at the hair salon with M-Chuck and Cassie about perming their hair to conform to European beauty standards. M-Chuck reminds her that the “big chop” could lead to months of tears and struggle, regardless of the payoff. Missy decides to cut her hair and immediately regrets her decision.
Cam reiterates throughout the episode that he’s a “Grown Ass Man” and won’t be patronized by anyone, especially an owner who thinks he actually owns him. Cam goes into full primadonna mode at a basketball signing when he refused to sign all of them, while signing the last ball specifically for Flaherty labelled “Indentured Servant”

After serving time for drug trafficking (38 months of a 45-year sentence), Tony moved back in with his mom, Linda. But Tony, 32, continues to use drugs, and his mom refuses to kick him out. Tony’s sister, Andreya, turns to Dr. Phil for help.
“My mother is the biggest enabler in the world,” says Andreya, explaining that their 68-year-old mom works two jobs to pay all the bills, including for his truck, keeps the refrigerator stocked, and even wakes him up in the morning for work. Andreya, who recently caught Tony snorting drugs in his mom’s home, says, “My brother is a junkie. He’s a loser … My mother knows that he is a drug addict but she turns a blind eye.”
Linda, who claims to never have seen Tony do drugs, says all she wants to do is take care of her baby. “My son Tony is a mama’s boy. I’m going to take care of him. I’m going to make his life easier,” she admits. “I love having Tony around. If it weren’t for Tony being here I would be talking to my dog all by myself.” She explains, “I can’t kick him out. Where’s he going to eat? Where’s he going to sleep?”
In the video above, both women share their perspectives and then Dr. Phil steps in. Watch more from this episode and find out if Linda will stop supporting her son’s lifestyle before he ends up back in prison or dead.

She was a human emoji before anyone knew what an emoji was. At age 15, Demi Lovato was a professionally adorable creature marketed by the Disney machine, all visible wholesomeness and gollygee-ness. Her first job was at age 8 on Barney & Friends. She wound up dating a Jonas brother who was her costar in a Disney TV musical. But right from the start, Lovato was different from the rest of the tween stars to come out of that 2000s boom.

In the newest episode of “Convos With My 4-Year-Old,” dad Matthew Clarke finds himself dealing with the difficult situation that many parents face during the holiday season: trying to shop for gifts with your kids in tow.
In a scene that’s all too familiar to moms and dads, 4-year-old Coco, played by both David Milchard and Coco herself, ends up being quite literally dragged out of a store, throwing an epic tantrum over a toy wand that her parents won’t buy for her. As she screams “But I want it! But I love it!” her parents try to talk her down from her freakout, with a little help from baby brother Shepherd.
But the 4-year-old is stubborn, and ultimately the family decides to just go home. This episode, titled “Shopping,” is spot-on, especially how it captures the other shoppers’ facial expressions post tantrum.
