I’m so happy that things are going well for Drita and Lee. Hopefully, they had to make up the bullying story for the show. In the second episode, Drita realizes that Lee is not going to help with the renovations. Lee gives Drita a ton of shit for the Vegas trip. Which must be scripted because she is getting paid to go and frankly has to go.
As for the new one, Alicia, her sentencing is currently scheduled for January 2014. The Feds postponed it once already to reevaluate her income after she took the gig with Mob Wives. She will be paying some hefty fines and likely be serving so jail time. Maybe she will go to Danbury in CT. I just finished listening to Orange is The New Black on audio book and it was really interesting. Someone should get her a copy. Meanwhile we are five minutes in and she has already referred to “Eddie’s Betrayl” ten times, some were even unnecessary Frankenbites. Meanwhile, Renee is talking to a new friend, Nicole about Alicia.
Oh, it’s time for a dinner. Alicia wants to talk about the wire tap. And Eddie’s betrayal. Big Ang and Drita seem to think Renee was somehow shady about the situation. I don’t get that. If I have a guy friend who is cheating on his wife that I don’t even know, it’s not my job to assume she doesn’t know and tell her.
Big Ang’s son has knocked up his girlfriend. Big Ang is thrilled. She has not told her son she wants a baby with her man. lololol
Everyone goes out with Renee and Michael to a club. Drunk Natalie gets a little to friendly with Renee’s man and Renee grabs her man to leave before they even sit down. I have a few problems with this scene. First, all the girl did was hug the guy and say he smelled delicious. Would this piss me off? Maybe. Depends on who the chick is and who the man is. If I determined that the little drunk whore was going to be a problem, I probably would slide out the door with my man to someplace more intimate. I would not however let the drunk little whore know she has pushed my buttons. I would not flap my arms around like a chicken headed for slaughter. I would whisper to my man to get me out of there and he would. Easy Peasy.
The other issue I have with this scene is that Renee seems VERY EMOTIONAL. Like I have had too much to drink emotional. Didn’t she just come out of rehab? And when little whore put hands on her man as they were leaving, her eyes nearly popped out of her head.
Ah, as the next episode starts Renee orders a bottle of wine. She tells us in her talking head that drinking is not her issue, it’s Xanax. Whenever I try to stop smoking I have to stop drinking because drinking leads to poor decision making. Surely they cover this in rehab. The dinner was to introduce Michael to Renee’s son and girlfriend. Seems a little early for that. This Michael guy seems like a hired actor to play the part of boyfriend. Scene one be charming and then by scene three be over it. All these dinner scenes are making me hungry.
So of course we now have to have a dinner scene with Natalie and her boyfriend London. (brief pause to thaw out something) Nothing interesting there.
The girls are going to Vegas. There was much written in the news about Alicia going to Vegas as she is on parole and not allowed to leave the state except to visit her son in West Virginia. On the show it shows her getting permission to go, probably because it was “job related.”
Natalie’s boobs look plastic. I mean on the outside. They don’t appear to have human skin on them at all. Also, she wears lots of see through shirts and apparently they blur the nipples or else she doesn’t have any.
I love how these Mob Wives do not get dressed or do their hair for lots of the scenes, it’s refreshing reality. And just as I suspected Renee is using again. She is having panic attacks on the way to the airport and says she needs to take a couple Xanax. I have taken Xanax for anxiety for years and years. I do not understand how you get addicted. You take one, the panic attack stops, then you feel normal. Not drugged up, not happy, not stoned, just normal. Then you don’t have to take another one until the next panic attack. I don’t see the point in taking them if you are not having a panic attack. In fact, most of the time, I don’t even need to take one. Just knowing that I have one to take if things escalate is enough. I don’t get the attraction people who don’t have panic attacks have to this pill.
By the time the girls get to Vegas Renee is literally falling down drunk. Renee is out of her head drunk. Big Ang is alone with Renee and praying for Drita to hurry up and help back her up. Drita and Big Ang realize taking Renee to Vegas was a very, very, bad idea. She is on the brink of alcohol poisoning. Big Ang says Renee has been up for two days. If your drug of choice is Xanax, which calms your nerves and alcohol, another depressant. How is that possible? Eventually you get drunk and pass out.
After Renee goes down for the count the storyline becomes Drita’s excessive gambling. Only for almost every bet she made the minimum table bid of $100 ( 4 green $25 chips).
Renee did not go to bed. She is fucked up and by the infinity pool. Surely, some Bravo crew was in there filming or keeping an eye on her or both. And she is smoking Newports which I find funny for some reason.
Next week, Renee gets drunk and tries to kill Natalie and the camera crew has to step in and break it up.
