‘Couples Therapy’ Season 4, Episode 5 Recap: Ghostface Killah Reveals the Other Woman
Since this season of 'Couples Therapy' started, there has been speculation that Ghostface Killah isn't being completely true to his girlfriend, Kelsey. And in this episode, everything unravels when the other woman he's been creeping around with is revealed.
Sex is the topic of the latest group session. And of course, with Ghostface's job, Dr. Jenn Berman points out that conquest and sleeping with a lot of women is common. However, the rapper was quick to respond and say that he's not like that. "When I'm with a person, and that's like my partner-partner, it's all good," Ghost states. "There's no disconnect there. But when i don't really know you like 100 percent like that, you know, you do have a wall up because you just ain't letting it go."
He continues by saying that discovering Kelsey's true feelings toward him caught him off-guard because he wasn't thinking about something that serious to come out of their relationship so quickly. Considering the fact Ghostface said he had love for Kelsey last week, this sounds like a step back in their relationship. Meanwhile, Kelsey explains that she wasn't intimate with anyone for a year prior to them dating. So when they had sex, she was "letting him into my temple."
Ghostface is taken aback and doesn't realize that this is how special it is to her.
"I'm just seeing that since we've been here, we were never on the same page," she says, explaining that she feels disrespected and feels that he owes her an apology.
He apologizes, but it's clear there is more that he's not saying.
Dr. Berman and Ghostface later meet one-on-one, and he says that he feels that he doesn't know Kelsey well enough yet -- she's going too quickly in the relationship. The story takes a turn when Ghostface reveals that there's another woman, Latrice, who he's "been getting heavy" with. However, compared to Kelsey, Ghostface admits that he has known Latrice longer -- about two years -- compared to Kelsey. Then he thinks the two should meet so he can finally make a choice of who he really wants to be with.
"You understand putting Kelsey in a room with another woman you're sleeping with will kill her, emotionally speaking," Dr. Berman informs him. "That will really hurt her."
She tells Ghost that she sees the issues he's facing right now, she also wants to make sure that Kelsey isn't hurt. Dr. Berman also finds out that Latrice doesn't know that Ghostface is in couples therapy with Kelsey, and all she says is, "I would not want to be you right now."
Later in the episode, Dr. Berman brings both Ghostface and Kelsey in for a private session. This way, Ghost can tell Kelsey he's been physically and emotionally involved with someone else. Once he tells her, Kelsey is shocked and clearly mad, especially because he wants them all to meet. As Kelsey is about to blow up, Ghostface says that he needs peace of mind, too, and that he wants to know where his heart leads. And while you want to feel for him, it's hard to ignore the fact that he's cheating on two women at the same time.
"I can't ignore that I gravitated and I got these strong f---ing feelings for you, especially if I don't want to have them," Kelsey bursts out saying. "I don't want to be here no more."
"No, you're going to stay," Ghostface demands. "You made me come."
He apologizes, but she doesn't take it and walks out.
When she's interviewed by herself later, Kelsey questions what her role is in Ghostface's life. "I just found out Ghost has another chick on the side," she says. "And it's not just something new. It's been going on. I feel so crazy because I don't know if I'm the side chick or she is."
Back in their bedroom, Ghostface points the finger at Kelsey for forcing him to come here and that this would have never happened if they didn't participate in couples therapy. He blames her for putting him in a situation where he has to share his feelings with people he doesn't know.
"And now you want me to sit in a group with a bitcg I don't know, who I've been sharing you with," she retorts. "Like what kind of..."
He finally lets it all out, "She should be madder than you because she had me before you," the rapper reveals.
Kelsey leaves the room, and he follows her to the outdoor lounge area. He's all smiles, possibly because everything is out in the open right now, but Kelsey isn't having it. He tries to be affectionate with her and even asks her to get him some apple juice. She angrily obliges and gets it for him -- only to throw it in his face. She then storms off and goes into the bedroom while Ghostface is still lounging outside laughing.
In the next episode, it's revealed that Latrice is coming to the house to have a session with Ghostface and Kelsey, which ends up being a screaming match between the two. Dr. Berman yells for them to stop and Latrice just sits there watching everything unravel.
Will Kelsey and Ghostface stay together or will he choose Latrice? Find out next week.
