Jada’s longtime friend Mia Pitts and her daughter Madison Miles are guests. In the preview, Madison emotionally explains she was bullied for being dark-skinned. Mia also points out to Gammy that she sees her as a light-skinned woman to which Gammy shockingly questioned, “You consider me fair?”

“Yes!” Mia replied.
