And, Kevin's explanation to his boyz, defending his decision for kicking a woman that fine to the curb was, “She's Crazy!”. The combination of Kevin's vulnerable state in his career, along with the tantalizing opportunity to hit that again, causes Kevin to contemplate renewing his expired Players-Card, one last time. What harm could one night of passion create? Clouding his judgment even more is that Kevin feels like hooking-up with Yolanda might just be the rekindling needed to ignite the fire for his creativity in his writing career. But, there are just two problems. Kevin is married! .......And, Yolanda is Still Crazy!
