The Salt-N-Pepa Show Recap – Episode 13 – Son’s Best Friend



Give it up one time for the single moms!

Pep and her son, Tyran, haven’t really been connecting.


Perhaps it is his age (17). Perhaps it is his circumstances. Perhaps it is that giant fish tank that so often comes between them. Who can say for sure?

We see their dysfunction in motion as he practices driving. Pep rants before he can even turn the key…


He makes broad driving gestures, which is all it takes to push her completely over the edge.


She then forces him out of the driver’s seat and tells him to find someone else to teach him how to drive. Awww! Nurture! Pep relays her problems connecting with Tyran to Salt, who suggests one-on-one time. And by that, she means two-on-two time via a mother-sun weekend. Since Tyran is into snowboarding, that’s what they’ll do. They book a room at resort and the bickering commences. Pep talks to Salt about something and Tyran soon interrupts.


“I’m talking!” says Pep. “I don’t care!” shoots Tyran. Did Dostoevsky give them discussion notes? Regardless, Pep’s committed to soldiering through the weekend. But to do that, she needs a hat.


Hmm. That’s more Windsor guard than solider, but whatever. Close enough. Actually, Pep’s trying to make this trip more her by finding a cute outfit to make hitting the slopes bearable. On her way, butt pads are discussed.


Hey, don’t knock ‘em. Those things come in handy. Case and point:


This is all it takes for Salt to determine that snowboarding is not for her. She takes her son Chapele back to the lodge. Pepa isn’t so lucky.


“I’m not puttin’ my beep up dat beep beep hill!” she tells him when he wants to actually, you know, snowboard. It’s so nice to see a show on VH1 that can censor itself.

Despite her protests, Pepa actually does take the lift (which she refers to as a “gondola”) up the hill with Tyran. However, she goes right back down it. Eh, she tried. Tyran snowboards and all the world is idyllic for a brief moment in time.


Later, Pep and Salt warm up inside:


They determine that further activities should take place indoors. They hit up their hotel’s brochure station and find all number of stimulating activities they can all do together.


Like pottery for example. Pep also presents the idea of dog-sledding. Tyran is all about it, which: duh. Chapele, however, wants to do pottery.


Yay pottery!

With Salt and her kin favoring kilns and Pep and Tyran itching to go dog-sledding, this divide is extremely Flanders vs. Simpsons. To settle it, Salt and Tyran play Rocks, Paper, Scissors and, behold! Dog-sledding wins. The Simpsons are going to…the dog-sledding place.


How cartoonish!

Salt and Chapele do their dog-sledding without a hitch. Pep, still, is scared for hers.


It seems like she’s just being ridiculous and dramatic…




But then, all of her suspicions come to a head when she tumbles out of the sled.


Heh. But it’s serious! Tyran learns a valuable lesson about the speed at which to control dogs so your mother doesn’t go flying out. It’s a metaphor for, uh, throwing mama from the train.


The ride back is much smoother and Pep barely even complains after it’s over. She hugs Tyran because she knows how much spending this time meant to him.


Awww! Unconditional love.

As a coda, we see Pepa and Tyran back in the car, practicing driving.


Tyran, of course, peels out, proving that he’s actually learned very little about mothers and speed or, if he has learned anything, he just doesn’t care. Sons will be sons!

    Hi I was wondering what happened to the show I really like it and want to see more. When are they coming back with some new episodes…

  2. Laura Valentine says:

    I would like to comment to Salt (Cherly). I want to say I was disappointed for the very first time in you that you did not consider your faith in the whole ideal of madi gras. Do you realize the evil that it represents. No Chritian should attend a madi gras. That would be my main reason not to attend this event. I guess it’s okay for you to celebrate hollaween too? the other thing is the lies and deciet from Peppa goes along with the whole thing.
    I love you Salt, but I had to comment on this.

  3. mIS t says:

    I love both Salt AND Pepa. Salt, I am soo proud of you for going to Mardi Gras. You make TRUE Christians proud. You set an example for all the world to see. You can be classy, Christian, still maintain your values AND have fun.

    Salt – You went to that parade with your morals intact and you left that parade with them STILL intact. I’m sure many people have seen this show and have admired how at peace you are and how being a Christian is a good thing. The problem with these uppity Christians is they want to restrict everything and JUDGE everybody which turns people off. PEOPLE NEED TO SEE CHRISTIANS HAVING A GOOD TIME!

    @Lauran STOP BEING JUDGMENTAL. Let God do that! Don’t you read your bible! Have you sinned? If not, please cast the first stone. NOPE. I don’t think so. They’ll be no stone throwing rom you. I wouldn’t be surprised if you are a single mother who has never been married. Or you’ve had sex prior to marriage. This biblically makes you a ~*+$* Does this apply to you?! I’m sure it does!!! So do me a favor, write down the following: “I’m a ~*+$* who has no place to judge anybody. I’m not only a ~*+$* but I’m a ~*+$* who condemns others – in Jesus name – AMEN!!!!!

    Pepa – I love you and think you are a beautiful soul. Salt is just in another place in her life. You need to release her back into the universe. You’ve got a lot of talent on your own. PS You’ve got a gorgeous face, beautiful skin and great body. .

  4. Dionne says:

    Just a comment regarding mardi gras and Christianity. First off, Jesus came for the SINNER to be saved. Secondly, He gave Christians a duty to bring the gospel to every creature. Third, Jesus was around the lost more than anything. He ate with sinners. He brought the word to the lost. He was an example of how we as Christians are to live our lives. There was nothing compromising about Salt’s attending Mardi Gras. And even if it was, it is not our decision to crucify her. If she is sincere in her walk with God, as I am not denying, then her knowing the truth of Christ will bring her back into His grace, if need be. And most importantly, His grace is sufficient!

    I would like to know if the show will continue.

If not i hope you do because GOD AS YOU AND I KNOW IS FANTASTIC. None of us can judge these two young ladies we all sin every day that is up to GOD our lord and saviour to judge us. Keep doing the great work and ladies keep that christian walk going strong. For those of you please visit where you can read chapter three of a truly inspirational testimony that has brought men to tears.
