Laura Hayes opens the show and serves as MC. She tells family stories about grandkids, her mom, and her sisters. Adele Givens urges her audience to celebrate their flaws; she comments on this crazy world, her 92-year-old grandmother, and the need to take care when naming a baby. Sommore, recently released from jail, talks about kids, men, marriage, and why moms give their eight-year-old daughters a hula-hoop. Lastly, Mo'Nique celebrates big women and contrasts Blacks and Whites. Mo'Nique tries to give big women hope, that it is ok to be a big woman, and it is ok to dislike skinny women.
