"I really think that you should think this out," Evelyn says. "I feel like you need to save for, like, God forbid, if something were to happen, you want to be able to, you know, have money saved, just in case."

During Evelyn's tough-love lecture, Shaniece implies that the chain costs around $11,000. In reality, it's closer to $18,000. While Shaniece doesn't like to lie to her mother, she says she would never hear the end of it if Evelyn knew the truth.
