Your man is my man too, someone finds out their status

As I continue to read this book I make notes on how to better my own life, how not to be like the women in the book.  How to be a better friend, a better daughter, a better granddaughter, a better sister, a better co-worker and most importantly a better woman.  These women do not seem to want to better themselves but settle on what they think life has to offer them.

Right in the beginning of Chapter 47 Renee and Reese are once again confronted on the phone and Reese is trying to figure who is calling her Kenny.  Renee put everything out on the table but never disclosed her identity, thank God.  As Renee is talking to Reese about getting a life and realize that Kenny been cheating on her for years, Renee herself realize that she and Reese are similar women, know the real deal about their relationship but don’t leave but they are scared and or comfortable.  By this time, Kenny is at the door and kissing Renee, she tells him that Reese called and Kenny is upset asking her what she told Reese.  Kenny leaves and tells her he’ll call after he gets married.  Renee heart is broken.  It should be, she should be glad he walked out she needs to move on. 

Danielle and her daughter are getting along and Chance is still stalker her and its driver her crazy.  Their relationship somewhat ended after she found out he really did have a child once she saw with her own eyes.  Danielle describes the relationship her parents have, a 45 year happy marriage and wonderful something she wanted all her life. Before headed home after buying all of these baby gifts for her daughter, she heads to Nadine and Jordan’s house to apologize.  She didn’t want to risk losing another friend and especially over a man who was a liar.  Nadine tells her it’s ok but in a dismissive way.  Danielle is sitting there saying over and over how is sorry and Nadine just seems to brush it off like it was nothing that is strange and of course her over Jordan doesn’t know about that she slept with Chance and her wants her never to find out. The ladies make up with a bottle of wine.

Kayla tells Renee that Kenny and Reese ended up getting married over the weekend and Reese may know now that Renee is the other woman because her daughter Tamara told something about her mother’s relationship with Kenny.  Renee doesn’t care.    Renee decides to call Kenny to congratulate him but also to have him come over for some sex.  She changes into something sexy and the UPS driver drops off a package and she looks outside and she the same black truck staring at her across the street.  She runs out says, “Yeah I’m fucking your man.”  But she has no idea who is in the car. LOL.  Renee is so crazy.  Kenny pulls up after Renee embarrasses herself in front of her neighbor’s house.  OK ya’ll the way Kenny was fucking her was turning me on I was daydreaming about a few guys that I know who could do me like that.  TMI?  OK I’m sorry.

Kenny does her really good and someone calls Renee’s phone calls her all kinds of names for a second he thought it was Reese but nawwww it can’t be her, he leaves after he questions her who else she been fucking and its only been Kenny since Kenny.  So she was mad and told him not bother calling later.

Renee visit her dead sister Lisa at the cemetery and tells her about everyone life and everyone seems to have a good life but her.  Renee is hurt and lonely and really needs her sister right now.  When she gets home she finds John, her gay ex husband standing there.  He tells her that is HIV positive and for her to get tested.  He tells her that his lover didn’t have it so he must get it from her, she screams and cries and puts him out and doesn’t believe she could have it.

Once Renee gets to work all she can think about is her test and what the results could be.  At lunch she takes the test and on her way home from picking up her daughter from getting her driver’s license, she is confronted by the crazy lady in her neighborhood.  The crazy lady is crying saying her mother died and she needs money to get visit her dead body.   After Renee feels bad for not giving her moment the first time she gives her more money once she gets back from the bank and the crazy lady invited her in the home but it’s a mess and has an odor.  The crazy lady tells her about her life story and Renee tells her she can relate because her mother is sick.  The crazy lady swears she knows Renee long lost mother and it freaks Renee out but she is hopeful that she can find her mother.  She cries when she gets home.

The clinic tells Renee she needs to come back and take the test over again, she finally tells Danielle that she might be HIV positive and Danielle tells her that she go with her, like a good friend should.

Renee is just so hurt because she and Danielle is realizes that HIV/AIDS can happen to anyone and all the men she slept with is going through her head.  All the ladies get together for a slumber party to make Renee feels better.  Danielle, Renee, Kayla and Nadine have drinks and laughs.  Nadine tells the group Jordan is having twins and Kayla is getting married in a few weeks and Danielle miss Chance but wants Calvin back all of a sudden, wow.

Before Renee got her results she is praying to God asking for forgiveness but asking God to give her strength if the results are positive.  The doctor tells her she is HIV negative and Danielle calls her because Portia is having the baby.  Renee rushes to the hospital and Danielle sees Calvin in the lobby.  He is there to see his mother.  Danielle and Calvin chat ad they both miss each other.  She wants him back.  She tells him that Portia is having her baby girl.  Calvin says his goodbyes and said he’ll come back the next day.  Chance calls her several times likes his crazy ass do and assume she is with another man she threats that she is going to get her brother to beat him up just he beat up Ron.  Chance Portia delivers a healthy baby and her baby daddy and his mother are all there.  Danielle gets home and Calvin hug and while in the elevator they notice a woman staring at Calvin, she is the mother of the twins that Tamera was fighting and the co worker to Calvin and someone he slept with.  Renee tells Calvin to stick around after the baby is born so he can see Danielle.

Poor Danielle she gets a call that she is HIV positive.  She was trying to be a good friend and she finds out that she has it. She is in shock and can’t believe it.  She is thinking about her partners and who could infect her so she can save their life.

I had to stop at Chapter 55 because I was getting emotional.  This is very sad to learn that Danielle has HIV.  Just when she and her daughter were getting along she married the most devasting news brought to her life.
