Chad’s daughter, Jiji. And I haven’t seen her
in seven years. You know, I don’t know
what to expect.She reached out, and we’ve
been dying to reconnect.I feel a little anxious.I don’t know
how this is gonna go.♪ ♪[indistinct chatter] [squeals] You look so pretty. [groans][soft music]Sorry.
– [sniffles] – I knew I was gonna be
emotional. In the car, I was, like,
all anxious and [bleep]. Oh, my God.
I’m so happy to see you. – Oh, my God,
it’s been forever. – I was like, “I think the last time
I saw her was in Miami.” – Last time. So long ago.
– I know. I know when the [bleep] hit the
fan, everybody was devastated. – Yeah.
– I remember telling you, “I’m always gonna
be there for you.” So I always felt guilty
because–sorry–♪ ♪I always felt guilty,
because… after me
and your dad divorced, I met Carl. It happened pretty quickly. You know, it’s like,
I met Carl… I moved on with my life. And… I didn’t–I wanted
to remain close to you, but I didn’t want Carl
to think that, “You’re so close
to his daughter.” You know,
“Are you still communicating?” – With him?
– Yeah. – Yeah, just respect.
I understand. – Yeah, but I always felt
so [bleep] about it. You know, I wanted
to apologize to you for that. – Of course. It’s good. It’s cool. I don’t blame you.
Of course not. – And then not long ago, I get into a argument
with Tami. Thank you. And in the heat of an argument, you know, she brings up,
obviously, your dad. – Yeah, it caught me off guard. – Even though I can’t control
what somebody says, I still feel responsible because I’m the one
that’s in this circle. [voice breaking]
I just felt bad about that ’cause I know
you were in a tough position. My relationship with Chad
was, um, crazy. [chuckles] When it was great,
it was super great. But on the flipside of that, we, you know,
had some dark moments. When domestic violence starts
playing into your relationship, you got to [bleep] go. You know, you can always
call me for anything. – I have a habit of, like,
saying “stepmom,” like…I’m like,
“ex-stepmom,” but most people know
what I’m talking about. Yeah. – Well, I love you.
We’re gonna keep in touch. – Yes, of course. – You’re done? – Yeah.
– All right. I had to wear a maxi dress,
because I was like, “Let me feel like
I’m in Miami.” [both laugh] – Miami vibes.
– I know. I love you. – I love you, too.
– Look at you. I cannot even deal with this.
