Okay last season there were less than a dozen people who cared about this show. But I kind of like it because all of these women are in the news for mobster crimes when the show is on hiatus and their mob ties are real. So I’m going to give it the good ole college try again this season.
Renee’s father and rat of an ex-husband are still in jail. Mob Candy has gone from just a shoe line to a complete fashion line. Because apparently anyone at all can just start a fashion line. AJ’s job in Miami did not work out so he is back home with Renee which is exactly where she wants him. Renee sells both fuck me pumps and fuck you pumps, literally.
Big Ang opened a bar in Miami called the Miami Monkey but she is back in Staten Island. Last I heard her daughter was running the bar down there. She has Drunken Monkey in Staten Island. Continue reading
Okay, I woke up this
afternoon morning to all sorts of Miami drama. Where to begin? Well first of all, it’s not news to anyone that I am one of the half-dozen or so total viewers of Real Housewives of Miami. Their ratings suck. In fact pretty much every reality show they shoot in Miami gets lousy ratings. Big Ang’s new VH1 show, Miami Monkey has been tanking in the ratings. I don’t understand this. It’s such a beautiful city. The housewives in my opinion are a second only to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But alas, no one agrees with me. But that is not stopping Bravo from trying to turn the beat around in Miami. There is one more Bravo show coming and maybe this is one we can all agree on? Continue reading

Karen and Ramona are still in Arizona to deal with her ex and his girlfriend and also to play private detective and try to prove that her father is innocent and get him out of jail. Last week Karen said it was her and her brother who were the Ecstasy drug dealers, not her Dad. So if she gets him out, doesn’t that mean she and her brother go in? Also, they are just now opening his storage unit? Did they have someone check it for bodies before the cameras rolled? I’m thinking yes. Karen and Ramona are watching tapes for clues to help her father. The tapes are news reels and Karen is sitting right there in the courtroom. How is this new and helpful information? It’s not. So she decides to listen to taped calls between her father and his attorney. Wait, I thought she was looking for evidence to give his attorney. Is this making sense to anyone else? I need a Big Ang cooking scene about now. Karen finally gets it and has a meltdown. Ramona screams at her to get over herself.
Renee has safety issues. She is still thinking getting a $20,000 attack dog is a good idea. Clearly, she has never had a dog at all. Perhaps a poodle would give her some clarity. She also thinks she can take a couple of Krav Maga classes and defend herself. Unless she already knows boxing, wrestling, muay thai, and jiu-jitsu that is unlikely to happen. Gotta love “reality TV.” Perhaps afterward she can grab a bit to eat on the Georgia Tech campus and leave with an engineering degree. Continue reading
I’m a week behind on Mob Wives. I have no idea why EVERYTHING has to be on Sunday nights. Anyway, Renee is back in town and catching up on the gossip. It seems that Drita is back with Lee (Shocker!) and she is happy. For now. I love that the mob wives actually eat on the show. On the Real Housewives of Everywhere, you will notice that they very rarely eat anything at the dramatic dinners because they have to reshoot the scenes so many times. If you want to read about the details of filming a RHOA eating scene, read this article I wrote back in 2011. It’s very enlightening. Renee says she has moments where she wants a pill or a drink. She is going to try to stay away from the drama to protect her sobriety. We should start a betting pool on how long it will be before she has a front row seat to the drama. Will we make it through this entire episode?
Carla goes to the Drunken Monkey to tell Big Ang about her meeting with Raquel. Big Ang is planning a Christmas party with everyone. Carla is already planning to encounter drama with Love and Renee. It’s looking unlikely that Renee will make it through the episode drama free. There should be a drinking phrase for this show, “I don’t want no drama.” We would all be drunk ten minutes in.
Love and Karen are an Italian grocery. Karen is going out to Arizona to see Dave and check out the girlfriend situation. Karen is also wanting to get down with the swirl. Her business partner, Storm, calls and asks her out to dinner. Storm has a grill on his lower teeth that is distracting to say the least. They both have daughters. Karen is impressed that he is not in the mob. Should that be on my list of requirements for men? “Not in the mob?” I had not considered that. Continue reading
Y’all are once again requesting a Mobwives recap so here you go! Mobwives starts off this episode with Drita talking about how Lee suddenly got out of prison and showed up at her house. She’s trying to decide if she should let him come home when he gets out of the halfway house.
Karen and Ramona go to a cancer benefit. Ramona tells Karen that Lee is out of prison. Karen says she doesn’t care. She is working on something in a music studio. I forget what the objective is here, but I think it is just an investment.
The girls go bowling. Big Ang just sort of pitches the ball down the aisle or does the two-handed between the legs roll that little kids do. She is adorable. Renee wins the bowling game. She went bowling a lot in rehab when she was not laying out by the pool. Continue reading
I’m trying to get caught up on Mob Wives for my Mob Wives viewers. I would benefit greatly from a friends chart. Renee is off to rehab in Ft. Lauderdale. Apparently AJ is going with her all the way to Florida. If he is going for moral support he is sucking at it. However, despise their attempts to kill each other all the way to the center, they had a tearful hug goodbye before Renee sat down with her TV therapists. There were at least three different people interviewing her. One of the female intake people was scary. I’d have to pop a Xanax just to sit in the same room with her. Group therapy on the beach looks fun! Renee addresses her issues with Ramona. This is a good idea because when she comes home to her new house, she will be moving into Ramona’s neighborhood. Continue reading

I’m going to try to zip through this episode of Mob Wives really quick for you guys. I am actually feeling good today and should be out doing some banking and grocery shopping. Anyway, I have to say I love the Mob Wives theme song more than any other show. I don’t get how it goes, but I just love the intro.Renee put her house on the market after the non-robbery, robbery. Because the mafia guys will never know where her new house is. It’s not like she has a reality show or anything. Renee is telling Ramona and Karen the story of the brunch from hell. Her retelling is amusing. Apparently, Italian women talking at the table while gesturing with a butter knife is a personal attack of dramatic proportions.Carla has a scene where she is pumping her kids for info on the soon to be ex-husband’s new young girlfriend. By the kids accounts everything is wonderful. This irks Carla. Continue reading
Okay, y’all keep trying to get me to blog Mob Wives but I’m not sure I even remember their names or what is going on with these girls. It seems that Drita is in a relatively calm state for a change and that Carla is accusing Renee of popping pills. Meanwhile, Renee’s house was robbed by some bible shredding thieves. I have to say this is a new one on me. I’ve never heard of thieves taking a break from robbing a house to read the Bible, get pissed off by the lack of storyline and shred the whole thing. I mean how do they know it didn’t get better later? Perhaps they should have started with the New Testament. They also apparently did not like Renee’s taste in pillows and shredded those as well. Renee doesn’t mention any actual valuables being stolen. Renee looks good though. I wonder whatever happened with this character and his lawsuit?
It’s Big Ang! I don’t think I have seen her in this house before it is HOT PINK. She has a mafia chick over named, Love. Big Ang has had surgery on her toes. AJ is in court required rehab. Apparently, Renee thinks that Love gave some love to her ex-husband Junior. In Love’s talking head she talks about how she has poisoned, stabbed and shot people. She stabbed her last boyfriend in front of his mother. She seems quite lovely. Continue reading
It was just last month that Big Ang burst into our living rooms on season two of Mob Wives. Now she’s a cover girl! NEXT magazine has great article on our latest reality show obsession and it’s great! But what is even better is the photography by Kevin Thomas Garcia the hair and makeup by Ariel Vega and the styling by David Withrow! The photo shoot transforms Big Ang into Marilyn Monroe. The turquoise toe nail polish is just EVERYTHING!

I doubt Big Ang will have any problem meeting another wise guy in this outfit. Though according to the article she is hopeful that she will reconcile with her husband who does not appear on the show because they are estranged. Let’s hope they bring Big Ang back for season three! She’s not allowed to say if she will be returning or not but I can’t imagine the breakout star being left out. What do you think about the pictures?
