Justin Gets Caught in the Middle | Family or Fiancé | Oprah Winfrey Network


Cortne’, what do you
think about our outing that we had, at
the cake tasting? I think we had a
really transparent talk that actually put
everything out on the table. AUDREY: So while we were there,
we brought up the controlling. You’ve mentioned
to me in the past, when you all first started out,
about she can be controlling. Am I right? Yeah. AUDREY: OK. We did ask J, why
don’t you go out? What did– what did you say? So sometimes, you know, when
I do say I want to go wherever. Sometimes, Cortne’, you
do catch a little mood. She don’t directly say no. but I can just tell by
her face expression. Let me ask you a question. Did you stop doing what you
normally do with your friends? The amount of time
that I spent with them changed because of Cortne’. I didn’t stay out. AUDREY: Well, I’ma
go back to when you said sometimes you want to
get off work and go to the bar. And she didn’t– she didn’t
like for you to do that. You can’t get off work and
go sit at a bar, have a beer? So that’s prison. PATRECE: So that’s where
all this is coming from? – That’s prison.
– The discussion that you told– That ain’t– ain’t
no happiness in that. What you told your mom. Justin needs to be more
responsible, as far as what he wants to do and
how he wants to do it. Handle that and make
that your business. And you won’t run
into this situation. I do know that Cortne’
is a dominant person. If it was me, if I see where
my husband couldn’t leave, then I would. PAULINE: I didn’t
see it, where she had to take the lead at all. But I just pray and hope that
you be the might man of valor that God is calling you to be. And you be the head
of your household. CORTNE’: Well, while
we’re talking about engagement and
wedding, you know, we did go wedding cake tasting. And that’s literally like, the
first thing you’ve even talked about, about the wedding. AUDREY: The bride-to-be
setting up the wedding. You should take the
time to call her. She had not been involved
in the wedding period. PAULINE: Right, because no one’s
pulled her in, to come into it. The phone works both ways. BRE’: But why would Cortne’
invite her somewhere, when they haven’t even
had a conversation of hey, how you doing? Protocol is that you bring
the groom’s mom to the table. That’s where integrity comes in. Integrity has
nothing to do with it. PAULINE: It has a whole
lot to do with it. No it doesn’t. Because that disconnect
was there, we don’t have– we don’t have that relationship. So I don’t feel
comfortable calling, hey, this is the information. This is what we’re
doing for the wedding. Wedding planner. I’ve been communicating
with him heavily, haven’t I? But why you don’t
communicate with her? Because it’s a
breakdown there. AUDREY: And I know
it all started when he wants to come see me. He said you didn’t want
him to come see me. So– I don’t think it was that
she didn’t want to come– You said, (WHINING) “Why
we gotta go see your momma? La, la, la, la, la.” And I don’t think that
she would just say, I don’t wanna go to your momma’s house. He just could’ve
went by his self. – But that’s what he said.
– Honestly, I– PATRECE: Common denominator. JUSTIN: I have to balance a lot. You know, you, my mom,
it becomes overwhelming. And sometimes I mismanage. But the key thing here
is communicating this. AUDREY: OK. Well, let me bring
up the last issue when I was in the hospital. And you brought her
in the hospital room. And you didn’t say a word to me. When she walked in
the room, she act like she really didn’t
want to be there by her body language, as usual. But I didn’t hug your momma? In her hospital room? AUDREY: If she hugged
me, she hugged me. She didn’t say nothing. She stayed on her
phone the entire time. [LAUGHS] The entire time–
CORTNE’: Ooh! AUDREY: She was doing that. RON: Come on, come
on, come on, come on, CORTNE’: Child, I’m done.
