YES! The women are all accounted for after the peace cruise, apparently no one was thrown overboard. The fish sleep alone for yet another night. Opening scenes include Dritatalking about her successful store and magazine shoot and wanting to shoot a “Lady Boss” calendar. She is visited by Karen who endorses the “old Hollywood meets the Mob Wives” theme Drita planned (think: toy machine guns and a clutch with brass knuckles for a handle. I would never have believed it if I hadn’t seen it). The two women laugh about the old days and being cheated at poker by Karen’s grandma. Karen wants to keep the good times going since they’ve resolved their differences and puts together a poker night for all, including NatalieD, no on NatalieG. Given the Vegas scenes, I’m counting on Drita to lose a bundle!
Ang, meets up with NatG to walk their dogs together. Ang trash talks Renee before telling NatG they worked things out. Ang then trashe talks Karen while up the stuff on social media. She reminds NatG that they’re not supposed to attack families. NatG screeches that Karen hacked her mother’s Facebook (winning her the “bullshit” face from Ang) and claims she stole a pic of her as a child. She then claims that Karen taunted her about being bullied as a kid. NatG also claims that after her mother got upset, she taunted Karen in return, asking what kind of mother she was. She just won MY “bullshit” face. Ang tells her Karen wants to meet with her. NatG says, in a TH, that she’ll finish the war Karen started. Instead of Ang and Drita taking her to Karen, she’ll send a car and the “bitch’ can come to her. Is there a Darwin award for reality show stars? I think we have a winner. Oh, and does VH1 give bonuses for every f-word tossed out? This show is beginning to sound like a bad symphony with all of the bleeping.
Big Ang and Neil are moving into the new house. The exterior still needs work. Ang is expecting the interior to be done. Too bad. Nothing is finished and she’s peeved at Neil. I was on his side last week; he’s on his own, this week. AJ is home and Ang wants him and his family to be able to move in. She plans to do whatever it takes to give her son a fighting chance. Godspeed, Ang. She goes to stay with her sister while Neil finishes the house. Across town, NatG is in the liquor store and pulls London out of her purse long enough to let him hear her wail on and on about the other women. We find out that they live together on the weekends because she’s in Philly during the week while her son is in school.
Poker night, and Karen has invited other friends in addition to the wives. She reminisces about her father’s old club. Everyone seems happy, the food looks good, lots of laughs, andDrita tells us that she should never have been born a woman due to her love for cigars and poker, among other things. Drita invites Ang to be a part of her calendar and they’re joking when Renee brings up “Ratalie” making comments on social media. Ang is upset they’re talking about her friend and shares NatG’s side of the story. It turned out that there was no hacking; NatD provided the picture in question, which came from a yearbook. Ok, HOW long have they all known each other? Renee jokes about whether you can get time for “mother hacking” (HA!). We find out that the social media fight got so dirty that Karen’s 15-year old (Karena) jumped in to tell NatG to stay out of her relationship with her mother. All agree to a sit down, but Ang is starting to look as if she is alone in defending this woman. Drita was not happy to hear that Karena was so upset. Drita wants to chew a face.
The next day, Drita is shooting her calendar and it looks good. Ang models and rocks her shoot. They talk about the upcoming sit down and both plan to stay out of whatever happens. They’ll referee. Ang is still not happy that NatG won’t stop attacking families. Karen is ready. She tells us that by the end of the day, Natalie will respect her or fear her. Natalie is screeching that she only says what everyone else is thinking but are afraid to say. She thinks Karen is a wannabe gangster and wants Karen to say everything to her face. For me, NatG is the Brandi Glanville of mob wives. If you’re wondering, that’s not an endorsement. Renee says they either deal with things the way they’re doing it that day, or tie the bitch to a rock and drown her. Does the audience get to vote? Ang finally feels that Natalie went too far and it’s affecting them all. Drita feels that violence is the answer and that it’s the only way to shut someone up who won’t shut the f—k up… I think Drita just won the VH1 “f—k it” double bonus!
Everyone is waiting at the harbor. Ang wants NatG off of social media, Renee wants her gone from the circle. NatG finally shows up, wankering on about how she’s there forDrita and Ang’s sake. Renee cracks, in a TH, about NatG’s outfit and wonders if she was supposed to bring cash to tip her. OUCH! Karen rips into her over the deadbeat mother comments. NatG keeps talking until her story about why she did it starts falling apart. Karen starts shaking the table, she’s so pissed by Nat’s spinning. Ang looks a little shocked by NatG’s responses, especially since NatG equates Karen’s attacks against her as being the same as what she’s said about Karen’s family. No one is amused, right now.
Renee tries talking sense into Natalie telling her that she needs to just learn how to apologize. Natalie proves she has a ten year lock on the Darwin award when, after failing to see that Karen is blacking out – reliving every act of disrespect, tells them women if they can’t handle what she says, come at her. Karen snaps, flips the table, and begins ripping NatG’shair from the roots. The crew is trying to pry her off and have earned their pay doing it. There is blood on Natalie’s face. Karen has scratches. Natalie looks SHOOK! NatalieGtalks big in her THs, but she has been shaken AND stirred! Drita is angry that Karen has been held back, yelling at the crew to get off of her! She thinks a fight continues until both are finished but I get the feeling she’s getting angry that they keep holding her friend down. Drita looks cagey, like she wants to jump in and fight the crew to keep them off ofKaren. Karen is not done and catches up with Natalie in the parking lot… AND…. it continues next week… Sorry. From the previews, it looks BAD! We find out that NatalieGhas been trashing Big Ang and Drita. Ohhhhh… I guess we’ll see what happens.
I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well.
