Episode Summary:

Babyface (or as he is now called, Shadyface – Google it) and Teddy Riley did a Verzuz battle on Instagram, and it ended up being an epic fail. At least part one of it did.

Plus: have you ever felt invisible? The sisters discuss how easy it is to be overlooked as an introvert, and what you can do to counteract it.
