In the Season 3 premiere of Hustle & Soul, “Sexy Is Sexy, But Trashy Is Trashy,” while Thandi runs the soul food restaurant Pink Tea Cup in Brooklyn, New York, chef Lawrence Page (LP) brings his fiancée and general manager Ana to Miami, Florida to open a second restaurant, Pink Teacup Villa. The Kitchen and Lounge includes two floors, three bars, and an outdoor patio. Page says, “I sunk millions of dollars into this place. The stakes are higher than ever.”
Chef LP is still reaching for those Michelin stars and celebrity status. But will he gain that kind of prestige with Ana in charge of the front of the house? She’s hiring the bartenders and servers including Aneka who used to be a stripper “who wants a second chance at life.” Ana explains, “If anybody can sell anything it’s a stripper.
If a stripper can sell booby why can’t they sell some good chicken?” According to Aneka she’ll still be able to “turn up and still twerk” which she demonstrates in the Pink Teacup Villa uniform – a tight spaghetti strap crop top and matching short shorts. Ana says the uniforms reflect what Pink Teacup Miami is all about “bringing booby and chicken together.” Hustle & Soul airs Thursdays at 10 pm on WE. [WE TV Digital App found here. Download is FREE.]
