Mob Wives Reunion Recap: Boring

Mob Wives New BloodLast week the season finale of Mob Wives just left us hanging with a “to be continued…” ending. To me, that means we will have another episode of the show. To the Mob Wives producers, it means we go straight to the reunion.  I think that is odd. Sherri Shepherd also seems to be an odd choice.  It’s like sending a lamb into den of wolves.

Right away, Alicia explains what happened in court, which we already knew because it was all over the news. The feds are holding up sentencing until they can figure how to get her Mob Wives salary as part of her restitution.

Big Ang is wearing a glittery hoody with the hood up. It’s weird and I want it. Oh I think it is a dress. It’s much more interesting than rehashing the “Delicious” debate. Continue reading

Mob Wives New Blood Season Finale

Mob Wives New BloodMy TV guide is not noting this as the season finale but I am pretty sure that is what they said on the last episode. Sorry it has taken me so long to get to this recap, I’ve been super busy!

Renee has been keeping a secret from the girls. She has been secretly writing a sex novel. She reads a little bit of her book out loud. Let’s just say she is not the next Sylvia Plath.

Alicia is very nervous about her sentencing. I sort of feel sorry for her. I get that she committed crimes and needs to do the time, but her sentencing has been dragging out for like a year and counting? I’m sure she just wants to know her fate at this point.

Big Ang comes to her senses about having a baby and tells Neil he will just have to be a grandpa to the two on the way instead. Also they just bought a fixer upper house that is going to take all their time and money.

Natalie finally tells London that her job and her house and her life is in Philly. She wants London to marry her and move to Philly. They seem to be at a standstill.

Mob Wives Recap: A Whole Lotta Ho Ho Ho(s)!

Mob Wives New Blood

It’s time once again for me to recap the Mob Wives.  It’s the penultimate episode and expectations for drama is high as the producers set up for the explosive season finale next week. Let’s get right to it!

Drita’s Dinner Party

Drita has all the girls over to dinner.  Drita has just finished her home renovations and she dares anyone to get out of line in her house now that she has it all done up. Let’s see how that works for her, because if renovations could stop Mob Wives from feuding, the whole clan should start their own home renovations.  Renee is the last to arrive and is seated next to Big Ang.  Natalie is already feeling bitchy toward Renee. Alicia is hopeful that Renee will stay in her seat and not put anyone in a choke hold.  Plus she is worried about her sentencing that is on the schedule for next week (yet still has not happened IRL).

Alicia basically tells Renee that she feels like their situation is very catty.  She says that Renee spreading rumors is harming her case.  Renee says that Alicia has it all wrong. She is not selling stories to the tabloids.  She may gossip with her friends from time to time but that is it. Big Ang asks Renee if she knows who the leak is. Renee says absolutely not. (heh) Renee says that she thinks that Alicia’s problem with her is really about Carla. Continue reading

Mob Wives Recap Double Feature!

Mob Wives Halloween 2013

I have been so very busy with the blog lately I have totally gotten behind on Mob Wives. I am barely awake and making coffee so I can make it for the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics tonight, but first I am going to zip through the last two episodes and give some random thoughts rather than a full recap. I am dying to hear from my Mob Wives watchers, it’s been too long! Sorry for the delay.

The last I saw, Alicia had confronted Renee as her number one suspect as “THE LEAK.” Renee is pissed about it, but frankly, I think Alicia had plenty of reason for her suspicions. Side note: I’ve only been to Philly once and I stayed in a hotel right across from that big clock. It was straight out my window and you could see it from the bed I was sharing with someone I would just as soon forget. Thanks, Mob Wives for showing it every episode. #memories.

Anyway, it’s Halloween. I hate Halloween. Where the hell are these women? I’m forwarding. It looks like Renee and Alicia will be reuniting at a Halloween party in Natalie’s funeral home. How lovely it must have been to have your loved one’s body there while that was going on.

Drita’s scene with Method Man was genuine and adorable. The rap is actually pretty decent.

I am starting to think Big Ang is actually serious about having a baby with a surrogate. If you missed her on Bethenny, her menopause discussion was priceless. Also, Renee, Drita and Alicia were recently on Bethenny as well. Yep, Renee and ALICIA.  The fact that Big Ang was not on with them, coupled this post with (which Renee actually responded to, Hey Renee! Don’t whack me! Love ya!)  makes me wonder if Renee and Big Ang are on the outs, Continue reading

Mob Wives Recap: The Point Where the Rubber Meets The Road

mob-wives-new-blood

It’s billed as Las Vegas Part III but I swear  I feel like I just recapped part two yesterday.  Why do I have the feeling this episode is going to be like The Godfather III and not nearly as exciting as the first two? Hopefully, I am wrong.

We start with the girls still in Vegas.  All the girls are at a race track getting ready to drive race cars. Real race cars. When Big Ang and Renee join Drita, Alicia and Natalie at the track, things are tense but workable for a hot minute. Then Renee sees all the other girls laughing and getting along with Natalie and she is pissed off. She refuses to drive the cars with the other girls and says she will watch. It is interesting to note that Renee is the only one wearing shorts and open-toed shoes.  To me this is a clear indication that everyone knew Renee was not going to drive anyway.

Renee is getting furious with everyone. She feels like the girls are being two-faced by hanging with Natalie.  She confronts Big Ang and Alicia for not standing up for her. Renee tries to say that Natalie brought up Alicia’s husband; but, they point out it was Renee who brought up Alicia’s husband.  Both of them push back at Renee and tell her that she was at fault as well. Renee says that she sees where their loyalty lies. Big Ang is not too pleased with Renee questioning  her loyalty in talking heads.  Renee gets pissed at everyone and leaves. She probably has some plans with her sister in the casino and wanted the afternoon off. Continue reading

Mob Mives Recap: Renee Went From Mentor to Mental

Mob Wives

Finally ready to recap Mob Wives and the second half of the Vegas trip.  I have a feeling this one is going to be long.  At least we know in advance nobody died.  Wait! They are picking this up on the next morning? I thought they literally left us hanging off the 34th floor last episode? Did we see some resolution?

At breakfast, Renee is already gunning for Natalie. As soon as Natalie arrives to breakfast, Renee goes in. She tries to drag Natalie from the breakfast table, she slings a metal cloche  ice bucket across the table send glass flying all over Alicia.  Natalie dares Renee to touch her. OMG. Natalie is standing her ground.  She tells Renee to stick her tacky Mob Candy up her ass. This is girl is going toe to toe with Renee and the other girls are just watching the show with their mouths hanging open.  Then Renee runs at Natalie sling an arm bar to her throat! And it’s awn like popcawn!

Ready For Some Renee Graziano Tea?

mobwivesreneeI moseyed over to Renee Graziano’s twitter feed to see if she has sobered up yet.  My personal assessment is that she is trying but not there yet.  And there was much strangeness to discover there, so I thought I would share some tea I’ve dug up. Deciding  where to begin is  the hard part. I think I want to start with December and then go back to September.  This may be a little confusing, made moreso by my raging case of Mongolian Lung Flu, but there is a lot of ground to cover.

Last Monday, was a big tweeting day for Renee. I am not sure if she fell off the wagon again, or what, but there were many tweets and  Instagrams. But first, he is what she posted today.

 From Instagram:
This should be on everyones resolution list 4 2014,  i wanna share alittle something with you guys..this year i learned the hard way some people will judge (when god knws they shld be begging 4 forgiveness or saying nothing at all) & some r quick 2 point fingers in hopes it’ll deflect the dirt they r doing or have done 2 some 1 else .. well I’m here 2 tell before u do either of the 2 stop & think because u can best believe that dirt your doing or did will come back 2 bite u in the ass so unless u got a big ol butt .. like the size of a horses ass and wont feel it.. I suggest u don’t judge or point a finger 4 something u once did or r doing … & I can say this cause I speak from experience so trust me when I say if u dont work 4 the court system don’t judge !!!!!!

She is really pissed at someone. And she is not interacting with the other wives on twitter. Alicia seems kind of chummy with Drita…. interesting? Continue reading
