Loni Love: What happened? I just need to know.

Egypt Criss: Backstory!

Pepa: Well… You wanna know what happened?

Loni: What happened?

Jeannie Mai: Yeah!

Pepa (to herself): Can I say this… well, it’s true! I mean, it was just that, throughout times, Salt-N-Pepa, that is the group, that’s how we started, unfortunately there was another Spinderella… Spin left the group one time, and came back, and Salt left the one – I’m the original member – let me say that – I stayed too, Salt-N-Pepa – I ain’t never left me!

[The Real audience applauds]

Adrienne Houghton: I never left! I never left me!

Egypt: I never left me!

Pepa: But you know, it’s a lot of time they ask for Salt-N-Pepa to talk or be here and they don’t have Spinderella, and it’s out of our hands and she always blames us, you know, I think that’s, you know, to fight. We do fight, but sometimes they – like, no, we just want the Salt-N-Pepa. And it’s hard. And that was a lot of that constantly, constantly and she wants to say, “No, don’t do this,” you know, and I’m like, “I’m doing it. I’m getting over it.”

Pepa (the real)

Pepa: Oh I’m gonna be on The Real.

Loni: But she’s suing you for royalties.

Pepa: Oh, well things like that… when, back in the days… when like Hurby brings you in the group…

Loni: Right.

Pepa: Brought her in. We didn’t have nothing to do with it! “That’s second Spinderella. Hurby wants you in.” We – as adults, everyone’s responsible for how – that’s what I said, you gotta be a manager, accountant, you gotta sell your business!

[The Real audience applauds]

Pepa: Your own business, because if you stay on your business, you will see, “Oh my god, I should do this,” or “I should be getting this.” I don’t know – should be all ‘ya.

Loni: So your contract was with you and Salt. Salt-N-Pepa. And Cinderella –

Pepa: Spinderella.

Loni: Spinderella – Cinderella – Spinderella came in separately.

Pepa: Right. Through Hurby.

Loni: Ok, through Hurby.

Adrienne: And her deal was her deal, and didn’t have anything to do with you.

Pepa: No!

Loni: Ok.

Pepa: At all. And what I just want to add, out of Salt-N-Pepa money, $1.6 million – when we got our deal, we did not contractually obligated at all – Salt-N-Pepa took our money and gave her $1.6 million – and didn’t have to.

[The Real audience applauds]

Pepa: And that’s the “God’s honest truth.”

Adrienne: There we go.

Pepa: You know, and that’s the sense like – we didn’t have to do those things and I want that to be known because no one talks about that. They talk about all this stuff but what did we do all this time.

Tamera Mowry-Housley: If you’re gonna talk about the bad, you gotta talk about the good, too.

Pepa: Yeah.

[The Real audience applauds]

Pepa: I fight for mine! I fight for this group, I love the brand!

Adrienne: Thank you for clarifying that and being so open and honest!
