Violet Tells Hollywood That She Doesn't Want to Take His Name
Season 3 Episode 307
Aired on 07/11/2018
The love that Violet has for Hollywood is strong, and although she is looking forward to marrying him, the love she has for staying true to herself is stronger. Knowing that Hollywood is excited to make her Violet Desonier, Violet delicately breaks it to her fiancé that she wants to remain Violet Bordelon—nothing more and nothing less.
However, Hollywood feels that he has bent over backward to give Violet the space she needs to retain her independence—from him—in nearly every aspect of her personal and professional life. "Baby, it's getting to where all I've got left to give you is my name," Hollywood says in disbelief. "And now you telling you don't want that neither? It's like you are hellbent on telling me how much you don't need me and I don't fit in your life."
"I don't need you. Not like most folks talk about," Violet tearfully tells him. "But I want you. With everything I've got in me, I want you. But I don't want to take your name."
Disappointed, Hollywood takes his pillow and exits the bedroom, leaving Violet to sleep alone.
