Back at the house, Melanie talks to Willie one-on-one. She says that Shavonda told her that everyone in the house felt the same way. Melanie interviews that she wants to talk to each person in the house, and wants to finish out the experience and get to know her roommates. Willie says he doesn't have any serious issues with Melanie, but that he also doesn't disagree with the group's consensus. He thinks Melanie has a way of putting in her opinion that makes the other person feel judged or unimportant. Melanie says that she's passionate or harsh about her opinions. Willie says he knows she doesn't do it intentionally, but that it still bothers people. Willie interviews that Melanie has a good heart, but she needs to grow up a little socially. Willie suggests that Melanie put a little more effort into her interactions, but says that they all love her and want her to stay.
Melanie goes to Sarah next. She says that she's been upset all night, and Sarah says she knows. Melanie says that Willie told her how everyone feels. Sarah protests that her feelings are hers alone, and that she thinks she and Melanie have a deeper relationship. While Sarah is talking, Shavonda totally walks into the room (the door was closed) and makes herself at home. Melanie says that Sarah feels like Melanie negates everything she says, but Melanie doesn't mean to judge her or appear uncaring. Sarah interviews that she wants Melanie to stay, because she believes that Melanie can change.
Melanie says that she felt attacked. Shavonda finally speaks, and says that Melanie got in her face. Melanie doesn't remember it. Shavonda explains it. Melanie says that she knows drunkenness isn't an excuse, but that she doesn't really remember what she said. Shavonda apologizes for yelling, but says she won't apologize for what she said, because it was real. Shavonda interviews that the ball is in Mel's court, and that Melanie knows what she needs to do. Melanie tells Sarah and Shavonda that she will work on it, and that she hopes they can be patient with her, because it's hard for her to change. Melanie concludes, "Twenty-two years of being like this and no one having a serious problem with it." So that makes me thinks Melanie still doesn't think there's anything wrong with the way she acts, and is instead turning it around and making it her roommates' problem. I think Mel has always hung out with people exactly like her, and that they always agreed, so she's never had to deal with this type of conflict. Mel interviews that she knows change is good, but that it's hard to realize in the moment sometimes. Mel and Sarah hug.
