Episodes[edit]

Season 1 (2007)[edit]

Two themes emerged from the first episode: Pepa's lingering bitterness from how Salt abruptly departed the group years ago, which Salt attempted to soothe with an apology; and a cultural conflict between the ladies, as Salt's strong Christian commitment leads her to renounce the duo's raunchy lyrics and dance moves from their former performing days, whereas Pepa wants to continue performing, like the "old" days. The remainder of the episodes show the duo as they explore the idea of reuniting.

Salt and Pepa reunite with their DJ, "Spinderella" (Deidra "DeeDee" Roper). The three of them get ready to appear on the Tyra Banks Show. Beforehand, Spin' vents some frustrations to Salt and Pepa, feeling that they treated her more like a hired hand than as a full-fledged co-member of the group. Salt and Pepa don't appear to deny the claim, but they respond that by bringing Spin' along to publicity events and the like, they felt they were helping her develop in her career.

Salt and Pepa produce a Public Service Announcement (PSA) for Lifebeat, a music industry group that works on AIDS prevention. The Lifebeat representative asks the ladies if they would do a brief performance at a gathering to celebrate the release of the PSA. Salt is reluctant to do so because of her time commitments, but when Pepa insists that she can take care of all the preparations, Salt then agrees to perform. Pepa's choices are too sexually oriented for Salt. The act is toned down for the Lifebeat performance.
