Ex-Factor: Kendrick Cross Previews Tonight's Episode of 'Ambitions'


The next episode of Ambitions airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.

In "Giving Up," the Barnes have a big surprise for the Carlisles, forcing Stephanie and Evan to fight fire with fire. Meanwhile, Amara receives backlash at work for her prior indiscretions.

We Love Soaps recently spoke with Ambitions star Kendrick Cross about his role as good guy attorney Titus Hughes. We shared some laughs about our desire to see Titus take down Damian Collins (Alexander Mulzac) with a good right hook. Cross said he had moments of wanting the same thing.

"Let me hit him!" Cross once joked to Ambitions creator Jamey Giddens.

Could it happen tonight? We're not sure but Cross teased that it's a can't miss episode.

"It's a really big episode for Titus," he says. "You will see a turning point. Damian's tactics are working and we may see Titus get fed up with it."

Let's hope.

"You'll see Titus consider helping Rondell (Brely Evans)," he adds, "which will put him at odds with Stephanie (Robin Givens) again."

Exciting!

Check out a preview of tonight's episode of Ambitions below.
