Mob Wives: New Blood, Season 4 Episode 12

Ok so, I was on an important phone call and missed the first few minutes of the finale. Sorry! What I could make out though was that Renee is writing a sex book. Alicia is going to divorce Eddie. Drita and Big Ang gave Natalie a talking to about leaving Renee the hell alone! And Drita really, really wants Gizelle to be a model.

I got off the phone while Renee was having her sex book party. Drita was on guard, making sure that Natalie doesn’t get out of line. Renee gets on stage and reads an excerpt from her book. The ish is mad dirty and AJ is grossed the f out. Natalie says that she has a surprise for Renee that is going to “dead” all of their issues. Drita is ready to f Natalie up as soon as Renee gives her the command. Natalie has no idea that whatever she is about to do will most definitely dead the issues, because Drita is going to kill her.

All of a sudden, Natalie is introduced and appears on stage. Renee says what we are all thinking, which is that this is not going to go over well. Apparently, Natalie has created a song called “Delicious” and she is going to sing it. Right now. On stage. At Renee’s party. In a British accent? Drita sums up the performance best when she says, “An English accent and twerking. I don’t know what the fuck is going on.”

Surprisingly, Renee laughs it off. Natalie says that she was just trying to turn something bad into something fun! Everyone laughs! There is no drama and Natalie has no idea how close she came to dying!

Alicia and her brother prepare for her sentencing tomorrow. If she were to go to prison tomorrow, her mom would move in to take care of the kids, and her bro would stop by every day to check on them. She said that Eddie had offered to take on her fines, her sentencing, etc. Well, he should! It’s his fault she is in this mess! I guess the courts won’t go for that, though. Alicia said that she would never forgive herself or Eddie if she goes to prison and her kids have no mom or dad. I can see why she is divorcing him. How do you recover from something like this as a couple?? Trust has been broken on so many levels.

Big Ang decides to cancel her baby plans because her family is growing rapidly. In addition to Neil, his kids, her kids, four dogs and a cat, they are about to have a bunch of grandkids as well. Big Ang thinks that all the new grandkids will curb their baby appetite, and I think she is right. She tells Neil and he seems to be okay with it.

Natalie tells London that she is staying in Philly because she is a Philly girl. Her whole life is there. She has her kid, her family and her family’s business. Why can’t London move to Philly? All he has in NYC is that hideous acid wash jean jacket he’s always wearing. The more he wears that thing, and the more he hesitates on this hot piece of ass who is pretty much the best thing that has ever happened to him, the more I think that Natalie should move on. London is kind of immature. She needs a man. A man with a career. A man who is involved in her kid’s life. A man who wants to wholeheartedly commit to her. She basically tells London this and he says that she is rushing things. Like most women in their late 20s, early 30s, Natalie is like, look, I’m 31, ain’t nobody got time for that! She wants to get married, have another baby, and settle down. And there is nothing wrong with that.

It was so sweet to see Drita and her girls baking for Christmas. Drita talked about how great it was going to be this year because it is the first time in 11 years that Lee will be home with them for the holidays. Christmas was so hard for them when he was locked up. I can only imagine. I’m so happy for Drita. She deserves all the happiness in the world.

On the morning of Alicia’s sentencing, she gets her kids ready for school like any other day and it really makes you appreciate the simple things in life. She says that she doesn’t know how she go to this place in her life and that it has made her a different person. She is less trusting and more guarded.

Renee’s friend Nikki calls her with some shocking news but takes forever to get it out. I was literally yelling at my TV, like, SPILL IT, WOMAN! Turns out that Junior, despite being in prison, knows that Renee went to see a lawyer about getting a restraining order against him. Apparently, he is not happy about it. And oh yea, he is getting released tomorrow!

Alicia goes to the courthouse with her family. The other girls are waiting by their phones for the news. Natalie went to the courthouse and waited outside for her, because she is a ride or die type of friend. Basically, the judge postponed the sentencing, so Alicia is back in limbo again. The bad news is that she could get up to five years in prison, along with a million bucks in fines! Poor Alicia.

What’d you guys think of the season finale? Are you worried for Alicia? How about Renee? Are you happy for Drita? Do you think Natalie should break up with London? Don’t you think Big Ang will make an awesome grandma?!

Mob Wives: New Blood, Season 4 Episode 11

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.

Mob Wives Natalie Text

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?

Mob Wives: New Blood, Season 4 Episode 5

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?
