In the exchange, Talitha boldly argued: ‘If you make $50,000, don’t date. I’m just being serious. You’re not ready to date because dating costs. Everything costs.’

Talitha continued: ‘You can take 22 walks in the park. In the end, the little one will need a sip of something. He’s going to be thirsty.

The co-hosts laughed when the guest insisted: ‘This bottle of water costs three dollars in Atlanta. Let’s not play.

“So if you don’t have money to spend, don’t date… You may only make $50,000, but you live in a shoe and now you have money to spend.”

She continued: ‘Or get yourself a bottom bitch who’ll hang out with you when you’re broke.’

“If she doesn’t have the expectations, and I’ll tell you right now, enjoy it while it lasts, because eventually you’ll want to run because she’s not demanding of you.”

‘She doesn’t make you the man you need to become. She lets you be this stuck guy in the same jeans for days, you know what I mean?
