We’re back home on Mob Wives this week and hopefully we can get Drita reintegrated into a least some of the posse because I’m tired of watching her type at home alone with her cute kids. I need to see some action here.
Big Ang comes to meet Drita for dinner at a gorgeous restaurant. Big Ang is really pissed that the Feds closed her bar, and she wants Neil to step up and pay the bills. Well Ang, you married a garbage man. I love Neil and I think he is a great husband but she can’t expect Neil to make more than he was when she was working just because she lost the bar. He makes what he makes which is a perfectly acceptable salary for most people and it was probably HIS insurance that paid all your cancer bills and kept you from losing the bar over medical bills.
Big Ang is having a Big birthday party (so she can’t be that broke, okay I know production pays, but still she has a job where production pays). All the bitches are going to be there so Big Ang fills Drita in on all the trash talking. Carla is pissed because Drita told Big Ang that he boyfriend was beating her. Drita says she only told Big Ang because she was worried about Carla. Drita does a lot of trash talking she unfortunately will not follow through on. It’s sad when Bad Girls Club has more violence than Mob Wives. I wanna see some people get whacked!
Drita meets with a publisher, because that is so easy to do. I’ll just guess she gets a book contract and skip through this part.
Mob Wives started last week with two brand new episodes. I recapped both of them but the posts didn’t seem very popular. I thought I would post this weeks and see if this is something you guys are still interested in. We start right where we left off with Marissa an Britanny spouting off at each other and me hoping for a mutual beat down. They are both so annoying.
Oh wait, we don’t start there. Apparently nothing happened, because all the women are going to some poor unsuspecting sole’s posh garden party. It’s merely a change of scenery for Brittany and Marissa Jade to argue some more. I guess I am going to have to swap ponies to Brittany because it seems lie Big Ang and Drita are going to pick her up for their side. Somehow, everyone manages to get wasted on the free liquor and is hungover as hell in the morning.
Carla invited a Yoga instructor to come over at the crack of dawn. Amazingly, everyone except Renee actually comes to the yoga class. She does show up late to watch though. Big Ang drops out pretty fast herself. It’s amazing how hard yoga really I, honestly. Overall the women had a decent trip.
Big Ang wants to apply to have her rights restored after losing them due to her felony drug conviction. I hope she does. They didn’t take much out of the Drunken Monkey. Maybe she gets it back. I dunno. I forget about these women in the off season. Continue reading
I am back in the swing of things with Mob Wives now and remember who I like and hate. I like Drita, Renee and Big Ang and I hate anyone they hate. But Drita is my ride or die. I love how at the end of the previews you here Renee or somebody casually saying, “who’s getting whacked” in the same tone one might say, ” what do you think of this dress?”
I wish they would have gone back to their old theme song for this final season.
Drita meets up with Renee so she can get downloaded on what she missed at the Mermaid parade. What she missed was Love selling her out to fucking Carla. Drita is pissed that no one stood up for Drita. Drita goes off at the mouth like a gansta at Renee. Renee should not be hanging with fucking Karen and Carla anyway. “Youse are all fake ass mother fuckers!” Drita says. And my mad crush on Drita escalates. “See this is what happens when dumb fucking hoes for a crew!” Swoon. Drita is totally playing up the accent, and I’m okay with that. Drita cusses her way out of the restaurant. Her talking head is full of suggestions that people go suck a dick.
While the dicksuckers and Big Ang are in The Hamptons, Drita works on her book. I don’t like to see sad Drita. Drita says something about not having Lee by her side right now. Where the hell is he?
You know who has probably sucked a lot of dick? Brittany. How is that for a segue? Why do they always have to bring some stupid little girl with a loud mouth on to be a punching bag? It would be great if they would finish her in an episode or two but they always dragged it out for the whole fucking season. Continue reading
Mob Wives is back and the season starts with back to back episodes. I am going to have a lot to say because it’s been awhile since we saw the show. I wish they wouldn’t give up two episodes right off the bat! This season is called The Last Stand. Sounds like a final season to me. I guess with Big Ang having cancer, that sadly recently relapsed and numerous others having legal issues, it might be all she wrote.
I either missed a lot at the end of the last season, or I just don’t remember it. That reunion looks epic, I may have to hunt for it on demand. It seems like this show was last on ten years ago and I can’t remember half the girls names or who likes who. I am always ride or die with Drita This could take a while to recap.
Karen Gravano (Father: Sammy The Bull)
We start on a lovely day outdoors at Karen’s house for a BBQ. Karen is grilling on aluminum foil. Aluminum will kill you people! Don’t do that! The freshly baptized Karen is the first to arrive. Karen let’s us know she is still on the outs with the stupid chick from Philly, Natalie. Natalie was last seen storming off the Reunion set and the girls think they are done with her. These two talk about Karen going to sell Mob Candy jewelry at the Mermaid Parade on Coney Island. I want to go to a Mermaid Parade on Coney Island. I have spent a lot more time in Europe than I have in the NE United States. I need to fix that!
Renee goes by Karen’s after their walk in the park. Karen is pissed that Renee won’t let Brittany hang out with them. Karen explains that the way that Renee talked about Britanny personally insulted her because of her situation with her father. So, Renee feels bad and says Brittany can come to the Mermaid parade with her. I predict this will not end well. Continue reading
Mob Wives returned this month and I have not seen a single episode. I used to watch and blog about the show but it didn’t get many views. I was not thrilled with the addition of the Philly mobsterettes last season, particularly Natalie Guercio. She was the one with the kid and the mortuary business and the boyfriend named London Rene who wanted the party life while she wanted the white picket fence stable home for her kid.
Well, according to TMZ, the lovely couple was at a club in Brooklyn called Output when some dude that London knew decided to slice him up with a box cuter. He sliced down the right side of his head, his arm and a slice to the gut. Continue reading

In the past few years I’ve practically earned a law degree specializing in federal law. I’ve spent more hours than I care to admit reading court documents on Joe Giudice, Teresa Giudice and Apollo Nida alone. In this week’s episode of my favorite felon, we have two federally indicted reality fools headed into the courtroom. Tomorrow, if things go according to plan, Apollo Nida is expected to go to court for what I anticipate will involve him accepting a plead deal. However, one thing I have learned is that you can’t expect for court proceedings to actually occur on the date they are originally set, or if they do actually take place, they don’t always go forward in the way you would expect. That was the case for former mob wife, Alicia DiMichele who was supposed to finally be sentenced yesterday in a Brooklyn courtroom.
I know I have done a detailed post about Alicia’s plea deal but for the life of me I cannot find it. I hate when that happens. So I am going to have to explain this part based on memory, and we all know my memory sucks. A million years ago, or so it seems, a plea deal was reached. This means the prosecutor and Alicia’s attorney are in AGREEMENT and they have a deal. I believe the terms of the deal would have given Alicia some house arrest and she would be required to pay a fine, plus $20,ooo in restitution to the Teamster’s Union who was the victim of her embezzlement in exchange for her pleading guilty and avoiding the expense of a trial.
But then she agreed to be on Mob Wives and this seems to have really fucked things for her. The prosecutor’s panties got all in a bunch because he felt she was profiting from her criminal activity. Alicia was paid $8K and episode for a total of 12 episodes. The prosecutors wanted that money added to the fines. So there were a lot of delays while her finances were investigated and there was some mention of the total fine increasing to $200K. Still, the plea deal has to be accepted by the judge and she can pretty much do whatever she wants regarding the fines and restitituion and technically could give her five years in the big house if she wants to.
