Little Women: LA star Tonya Banks had her daughter, Angelique Johnson, in 1991. She raised her as a single mother. For the past 15 years, Tonya’s relationship with Angelique’s father, Kerwin, has been an open relationship. The phrase “friends with benefits” comes to mind. Now Tonya wants to try having a more regular relationship with Kerwin. She invites him for a visit. When Tonya tells her girlfriends Terra and Elena about her attempt to start all over again with Kerwin, they’re not impressed.
During his visit, Tonya asks Kerwin “What am I now, a girlfriend, a mistress…” to which Kerwin replies, “You’re a darn good friend.” That answer rocks Tonya’s world. “I’m not used to Kerwin not being sure if he wants to be with me or not,” she says. Tonya’s confusion about Kerwin causes chaos at Jasmine’s “couples party.” Tonya complains that she feels lefts out at the party “because of her complicated relationship” with Kerwin and then she gets into a huge fight with Terra who believes Tonya should not be reuniting with Kerwin. Little Women: LA airs Wednesdays at 8pm and 9pm on Lifetime.
