The series encompasses interviews from his family and close friends. In the third episode titled “What Happened In Vegas,” both Kevin Hart and his wife, Eniko Parrish reveal detailed insights on the repercussions of Hart’s ch-eating on Eniko in 2017 when she was pregnant with their son Kenzo.
The episode explores the effect of the sc-andal on the couple which was spread like wildfire by the press and social media. The episode begins with Eniko truthfully revealing exactly how she found out about Kevin ch-eating upon her. Eniko said she found out about Hart’s in-fidelity through a DM. Eniko was unaware of who had sent her the DM. Referring to the DM, Eniko said, “I don not know who it was. They sent me an edited video of Kevin and another woman”.
It was more heart bre-aking as it broke down at the cr-ucial time of her life. She says “I was pregnant at that time. I was about seven or eight months pregnant.
Eniko recalls that it was a usual day for her until she received the said video. She further explains, “I was having breakfast, I opened my phone and immediately I just lost it. I called him, I’m crying. Eniko revealed her emotional turmoil during the most sensitive period of her life. The Press and Media gave her a hard time as they began presumptions on her relationship with Hart being over. Eniko agonized as everything was so public she said “You publicly humiliated me. Everything is on Instagram, everything is on social media.” Divulging more details she said she was constantly brawling with him. She said, “I kept questioning him, like, ‘If this is what you want to do, I don’t want to be a part of that.’” As Parrish was far along in her pregnancy, she said she “kept worrying about the baby” and had to “maintain a level head.”
Eniko said she was firm on keeping her family as she mentions “I think that’s the only thing that really got me through. I wasn’t ready at the time to just give up on my family.” As Eniko didn’t want her child to grow without his father’s love and care, she says “I wanted Kenzo to be able to know his dad and grow up.” The 35-year model said that she has overcome one of the hardest phases of her life. Controlling her emotions the teary eyed Eniko continued “It was a lot for me, but we’ve been through it, we’ve gone through it, we passed it and he’s a better man now because of it.” In the same episode, it was revealed the inappropriate video featuring Hart and an unidentified woman was sent by Hart’s longtime friend of over 15 years, Jonathan Todd Jackson.
Regretting his rash and irresponsible behavior Hart recalls Eniko’s lowest moments due to him. He says – “There’s a major effect that it can have on the people that you are closest to, the people that you love the most and when I got to see that firsthand with Eniko – when I got to see the effect that my reckless behavior had – that was crushing, that tore me up. That really tore me up.” Hart described that time as “the lowest moment of my life.”
Recalling how stress and anxiety had tensed up their home ambiance at an important time Hart says “When it happened, it came at such an up time because we were in the middle of the tour, we were starting ‘Night School’ and home wasn’t home,” he admitted. Hart says “Home was cold.” He appreciates Eniko’s prioritization for their family as he concludes by saying “you gotta have something to help you stand up straight and that something for me was my guys.” Hart and Eniko braved through the ha-rsh phase of their lives and have courageously detailed their experiences in the Netflix docuseries.
