After Quinn walks off crying, Lazkani confronts the opposite ladies over what she sees as bullying. Whereas it is true she did not know the messy backstory behind her new pal’s coworkers all of the sudden calling her out for speaking about them to one another and the press, the scenario nonetheless did not really feel proper to the British-Nigerian actual property agent. “I’m somebody who has additionally been steadily seen as so robust, or wanted to be so robust as a Black lady,” Lazkani mentioned to E! Information in a current interview. “I am not all the time robust — and he or she does not all the time should be robust.”
Whereas the opposite realtors had been fast to argue with Lazkani, she stood robust in her conviction that it is by no means okay for one individual to be ganged up on by a big group.
