But later on, as Denise envisions a career as a single's counselor, Vanessa storms in to announce that Denise has ruined her life: Elliott already has a girlfriend named Shana! Elliott, a weakling who is attached to Shana but smitten with Vanessa, then shows up to ask Dr. Denise for her advice on how to handle the situation. Big mistake! Finally, Shana (Malinda Williams) arrives to give Denise a piece of her mind. At that point, Denise decides it is time for her to permanently retire from the love business!
