Renee finally arrives at Drita’s house for dinner. All the girls are there waiting. Natalie says that Renee brings out the bitch in her. Alicia hopes that the “Good Renee” shows up, instead of the “Bad Renee” from Vegas who likes to put people in chokeholds.
Renee sits at the table and no one is talking. They are all eating Drita’s delicious crab cakes while staring at each other. Finally, Alicia speaks. She says that she is being sentenced next week and would like to resolve her issues with Renee before then. Natalie tells Renee that she has just been defending her BFF, Alicia. Natalie is a good ass friend. Alicia says that when she accused Renee of leaking information, she never meant that Renee was a rat, only that she was gossiping about the case. Renee brought up an excellent point that Alicia’s real problem with her has to do with Renee’s friendship with Carla, Eddie’s ex who he was seeing behind Alicia’s back.
I loved how Drita broke it down for them. Renee and Carla have been friends forever, therefore, her loyalty is with Carla. And even though she has been friends with Eddie for like 30 years, her loyalty is still with Carla, and Alicia has to respect that.
Natalie wants to resolve her issues with Renee as well and brings up Mob Candy. Natalie refers to them as business partners, even though I think it is more that Renee hired her to do a job. Anyways, Natalie said that there was a lot of miscommunication on both their parts. Renee agreed.
Fast forward to the end of the night, everyone apologized and agreed to move forward. It was actually very peaceful and Drita was amazed that she “managed a zoo”, because they are all a bunch of wild animals.
Drita is opening her second store very, very soon, but it is not ready, so she is freaking out.
Natalie and London are apartment hunting in my hometown, Brooklyn. Natalie is not impressed with the apartment they are looking at, because it lacks closet space, lacks space in general, doesn’t have an elevator, or a washer/dryer. Welcome to NY, Natalie. You’re not gonna find that in any apartment, unless you are willing to shell out beaucoup dollars. London, clearly not ready for all this, doesn’t understand why Natalie needs more than two bedrooms. Natalie says it’s because she wants to have another baby, eventually. London is NOT thinking babies, and instead, is thinking about the awesome nightlife that the city affords them. Natalie lets London know that she is coming from a house in Philly with her son and is looking for something for a family, aka, not a tiny ass apartment.
Alicia’s bank called her to say that they are closing all NINE of her accounts due to the shadiness surrounding her case. Who the hell has NINE bank accounts? And why? Please, somebody tell me.
It is the night of Drita’s second store opening and all the ladies are there. Renee offers her support to Alicia when she goes for her sentencing next week, but Alicia says it’ll just be her and her brother in court. Natalie and London show up, and he is still rockin’ this hideous acid wash jean jacket. You know, at first I thought London was hot, but now I’m not so sure. He has one of those faces that your mind changes its opinion on often.
Anyways, Natalie is pushing this marriage thing HARD, so she leaves London to Alicia, who lectures him. Natalie is way too good-looking to have to beg some dude to marry her. It’s starting to come across as desperate.
Moving on, Renee calls Alicia because she says that Natalie is targeting her on social media. Alicia says that Natalie must have a reason to tweet that Renee gives married guys blow jobs. Renee says that all she did was tweet that she doesn’t condone married men cheating and that Natalie went off on her for no reason. Something’s not making sense…
Big Ang and Neil are at the doctor’s office because they have decided to have a kid via an egg donor and Neil’s sperm. Neil goes in the lil’ room to “rub it out”, as Big Ang keeps saying over and over again. She refuses to help him in the physical sense, so instead, she picks out a porno for him to watch. How nice. When Neil’s done, he comes out of the room with his lil’ cup full of jizz and VH1 shows that shit like it’s cool. REALLY, VH1?! REALLY?!! F-ING GROSS!!!
Alicia is home with her two youngest boys, who are writing letters to their dad in prison. Eddie calls and the kids speak to him. Then Alicia speaks to him, and for some reason, fights with him in front of the boys, which of course, causes them to ask questions. Alicia explains to them that “Daddy made mistakes that might send Mommy away”. Nice.
Renee is having a Ho, Ho, Ho Pajama Party in what looks like a hotel room. Big Ang shows up as a geisha girl in a kimono that barely covers her huge ass knockers. The ladies talk about the tweets that Natalie aimed at Renee. Renee wants to know what Alicia is going to do about it. Alicia says that she can’t control Natalie, she is a grown woman. Renee is being a drama queen, per usual, and says that Natalie’s tweets are basically ruining her reputation. Drita says that if you haven’t been with any married men then it shouldn’t matter. I agree.
If you don’t pay attention to Twitter during Mob Wives, you really need to. Shit gets cray cray. The ladies talk shit to each other back and forth. It’s great.
Natalie tweeted the tweet she tweeted about (oy vey). Renee said a whole lot more than she doesn’t condone married men cheating. This is the tweet that caused Natalie to go off on Renee. Karen was in on it and erything.
Renee, OWN YO SHIT. Natalie, you are a good ass friend.
What’d you guys think of this week’s episode? Are you Team Natalie on this one or Team Renee?
