Ok so, it looks like everyone survived Renee’s Paranormal Activity-style possession by the pool last week because it is the next morning & Big Ang ordered room service for everyone. Alicia is up & her & Big Ang talk about Renee’s zombie-like presence the night before. Alicia thought that she was supposed to be in recovery & Big Ang says that this is how Renee gets when things become too stressful in her life. She just can’t handle pressure, so she relapses. Alicia feels that all this “delicious” pettiness is holding the group back from having the time of their lives & she is particularly concerned because this is her last trip before her sentencing.
Renee wakes up & is presumably sober, but still has “the crazy eyes”. Drita joins the ladies & is upset not so much that she lost $6,000, but that she now has to explain to her husband, Lee, that she lost $6,000. I love seeing Drita adjust to life as a wife, after being on her own for so long. It is hilarious & the woman really needs her own reality show. As Drita thinks about what she is going to say, Big Ang reminds her that it doesn’t matter, because no matter what she says, Lee is going to think she is a liar.
Renee refuses to let Natalie’s delicious comment go & says that the comment plays in her head over & over like a broken record. Uh, problems much? That sh*t’s not normal. Drita doesn’t feel comfortable talking sh*t about Natalie when she is not there, so goes to wake her up. Well, this is going to end well. NOT.
Drita takes Natalie to the side before entering the dining area & lets her know that Renee doesn’t let anything go & is a f-ng time bomb. Drita doesn’t want Natalie feeling ambushed when she walks into the dining area, because Drita knows what that feels like. She also tells Natalie that she didn’t appreciate her calling her a “whore” the night of the delicious comment because they don’t know each other like that. And that she talked mad sh*t about Natalie for it. Natalie tells her, again, that it was all meant in fun, but apologized. Drita recommended that she also take Big Ang to the side & apologize, because she wasn’t feeling being called a whore by some girl she just met either. Natalie agreed.
Meanwhile, in the dining area, Big Ang tells Renee that whatever happens when Natalie walks in the room doesn’t have to turn nasty. Uhh… does Big Ang know what show she’s on? Natalie walks in & Drita starts mediating the situation. Renee says that she is confused because (as she starts pointing to the fruit on the table) grapes are delicious & strawberries are delicious, but the man next to her is NEVER delicious. You got that, ladies? For the 75th time, Natalie apologized to Renee. She told her that the delicious comment had nothing to do with Renee’s man (except it was directed to him & was about him) & that she didn’t meant it in a disrespectful way. Then, Renee gets up. Natalie tells her not to get up. Of course, being Renee, she says that if she wants to get up, she’ll get the f up. This is when Natalie says something that puts Renee over the edge – which, in all honesty, isn’t that hard to do, but this one was pretty ballsy…
Renee tries to make an example of what Natalie did & says to Alicia, “Edward’s my friend & he smells delicious”. Natalie says THIS – “You would know. You went to dinners with him.” Aww sh*t! It’s on! Renee then grabs Natalie’s arm & is like, “Let me take you for a walk”. Natalie tells her not to grab her arm. She then tells Renee that Michael looks like a turtle caught in headlights. Lol. Ok. Renee throws Natalie’s breakfast in Alicia’s direction & breaks a glass. Natalie, admist the chaos, is concerned about her friend’s wellbeing, & I thought that was sweet. Like I said before, their friendship is genuine & I dig that.
So basically, it’s a whole lotta back & forth. You don’t respect me. No, you don’t respect me! Yada yada. Renee, clearly defeated, tries to save face by telling Natalie that she is gonna give her “a pass”. Natalie is basically like, I don’t need your pass. I’m not your puppet, yada, yada. Then Renee gets in her face. Natalie says “I dare you to touch me”. Oooh. This is when we all start to realize that this chick Natalie has some MAJOR balls. And we all start to respect her in a way that we didn’t before.
Natalie keeps running her mouth, so Renee walks up to her & basically starts strangling her. Alicia, so cute, is completely flabbergasted. She says that this is not how women act. Drita calls Renee Superfly Snuka? Supa wha? Supa who? I looked him up & he’s a professional wrestler. Ok. Makes sense. Lol. They keep going back & forth, & Renee goes after her again, & the cycle continues.
Basically, I’m with Natalie on this one. Not only did she show major heart & balls, but she did try to apologize sincerely to Renee a thousand times already. Why Renee wouldn’t let that sh*t go, I don’t know. What I do know is that if we started a drinking game where every time the word “delicious” was said in an episode this season, we’d all be in the hospital for alcohol poisoning.
After the shenanigans, Renee goes to her room & falls asleep. Natalie calls her boyfriend, London. Big Ang & Drita marvel over Natalie’s huge, unexpected balls. And Alicia still can’t believe that two grown women would ever act that way, because she is one hell of a classy broad.
Big Ang tells Alicia that she believes that Renee’s ex-husband, Junior’s, betrayal last season was just too much for her to handle. I can see that, because that sh*t was bananas. Big Ang asked Alicia how her husband, Eddie, was doing in prison. Alicia said that there is still no word on his sentencing. She is hoping that the judge will agree with his plea deal & then he will only get eight years. If not, they are back to the drawing board & anything can happen. Alicia feels so betrayed by Eddie that she doesn’t know if she is going to wait for him while he is behind bars. At least, that’s how I took what she was saying. Big Ang tried to reassure her that once Eddie gets out, it’ll be like he never left, but Alicia isn’t so sure.
Drita goes looking for Natalie to smooth things over, so that they don’t have another World War III up in the suite. Drita says that there are many sides to Renee & the one that they just witnessed, the drunk, drugged up, ticking f-ng time bomb, who makes mountains out of molehills, is the Renee that no one wants to hang with. Drita respects Natalie for sticking up for herself.
Once Renee wakes up, the ladies, sans Natalie, check out the Mob Attraction exhibit & have a good time. Renee & Drita talk about Natalie & Drita encourages her to just let it go. Renee starts feeling betrayed & is confused as to why all of a sudden Drita is sticking up for a girl whom a few days ago she wanted to beat the crap out of.
At the pool, Renee calls Natalie from the suite & asks her to come up to talk. Wow. Seems like Drita’s words really got to her. Natalie says that she is not mentally prepared for all that just yet. Really, NATALIE? Alicia, Drita, & Big Ang try to convince Natalie to go, because her & Renee are RUINING THEIR VACATION. Natalie bitches that she needs to “decompress” & that everyone needs to leave her the f alone. She is acting kind of bratty & I don’t know how much longer Drita is going to put up with this attitude before punching her in the face. Just sayin’.
So, what’d you guys think of this week’s episode? Does Natalie have balls or what? What’s Renee’s problem? And do you think Michael looks like a turtle?
