In this week’s episode, we watched, "Temptation, Confessions of a Marriage Counselor. This story was insane, it's a drama film directed and produced by Tyler Perry, starring Jurnee Smollett as Judith, and, Lance Gross as Brice.. The story revolves around Judith (played by Smollet). She marries her childhood sweetheart, Brice (Lance Gross), and they move to the city to build their life. Judith works as a psychiatrist at a dating website where co-worker Kim Kardashian (Yes, the actual Kim K), drags her for dressing poorly. She hates her job, but she can't leave it because she needs to get enough experience as a therapist to open up her own practice as a Marriage Counselor.
Her Husband Brice works at a Pharmacy, doing Pharmacy stuff… I guess? His dream is to own the Pharmacy he works at???? Is he a doctor? No, a nurse? No, does he do prescriptions? Unclear. But he’s at the pharmacy selling condoms and covid tests. Things in the relationship seem fine, but we soon learn that Judith has been criminally horny and unsatisfied for quite some time now. That leads us to a wild journey that ends with an STI.
