Keri and Tonya hail a cab. Keri says it bothers her that Kyle is so hot and cold. Keri bitches that Kyle doesn't want to accept the fact that Nicole broke up with him. In an interview, Tonya says that she feels bad for Keri because her feelings are getting hurt. Tonya advises Keri to tell Kyle to fuck off. I never, ever thought I would say this, but: Word, Tonya.
Keri and Kyle have the big talk. Keri accuses Kyle of disregarding her when he's trying to cover his own ass. Kyle says that he has to do that. No, he doesn't. Kyle wants to know what Keri wants. Keri thinks it's obvious that their relationship has nothing to do with what Keri wants, because Kyle is too busy covering his own ass. Kyle angrily says that he established his priorities with her from day one. Yeah, except on day one he was with Nicole. Now he's not. I don't blame Keri for thinking that things might change. Keri wants friendship and commitment. Kyle asks why she's being weird. Keri says she's sick of being second-best, and that he'll have to find some other girl, because she's not going to compete. Kyle asks if this is a surprising outcome to her. He can't understand why Keri is disappointed and frustrated. Keri points out that Nicole broke up with him, according to what Kyle said, and that their relationship is over. Keri feels that Kyle can be honest with Nicole, but not with Keri. Kyle promises that he can be honest with Keri. Kyle doesn't think that Keri should hold any ill will toward him. Keri thinks it's "very lame" that she's put herself in this position, and she's not going to do it anymore. Yeah! Go, Keri! Kyle comments that it makes it much easier. Keri nods and walks away. Kyle makes a few more jerky comments, then goes and washes his face and stares at himself in the mirror for a while.
Next week: Keri cries and says that it will be a struggle for them to be friends. CJP and Kyle flirt, because CJP will take whatever scraps Kyle is willing to throw her way, because she's needy. The kids at the mural-painting project are getting annoyed with Tonya because she acts like a drill sergeant.
