Between the sparkling everything and the style of the dresses, someone should have named this show the Mob Wives: Vegas Strip. Host, Vivica A Fox, looks like she’s working hard to compete with the wives on trying to spark her own “wardrobe malfunction.” She jokes that the women have her wanting to pull her “titties” up, and does it. Yeah, she clearly wasn’t hired to bring class to the set.  The banter starts out well as Renee jokes that she has a boot on one foot because Drita pushed her down the stairs. The first clip reviewed from last season? Karen’s crazy beautiful return, the one where NatG calls Karen a rat and claims she locked up half of NYC – as she slinks away. Renee tells us that she was happy and felt safe to have someone who was loyal to her and had her back.  ::Crickets::  from Drita and Big Ang.

When the host reminds her that she was “DUST” when Karen returned, NatG claims she walked away (ran) from Karen because she is loyal to Alicia, whose father-in-law was killed (a man Karen says Alicia, never even knew, or was it that NatG never knew him?).  NatG claims 1- That Alicia is the “real” mobwife and that 2- it wasn’t true that Sammykilled him. Karen reminds her that it’s documented and public record and that John Gotti gave the order to have him whacked.  Yet, NatG is the one running around hashtagging Gotti’s name while claiming to be loyal to Alicia. Now I’m confused, so why does Alicia hate Karen enough for NatG to have loyalty to Alicia by hating Karen, too? Does she think Sammy is guilty or not? Does NatG ever hear herself?  It’s not just the sound of her voice that annoys me, it’s what comes out of her mouth that does it.  None of her stories ever add up.

The next clip is of Big Ang losing her cool over thinking Renee went after her family. They talk about how they’ve never seen Ang like that before. NatG makes it all about Big Ang standing up for her since part of the clip was about the “DNA on the dollar bill we used to snort coke with” comment. Everyone is stunned that the narcissist missed the point of the segment. From the cold responses, it doesn’t seem that NatG has been welcomed back into the fold by anyone. Drita seems the most annoyed by NatGRenee brings up the fact that NatG was on twitter dragging out her drug use and that she was done with her when AJ confronted her with the comments that were tweeted. NatG denies she ever said anything but claims she was equally hurt by Renee – who she now claims was running around as talking about her when they were supposed to be friends. Renee denies it ever happened.  Seriously, weren’t they pals until the “delicious” comment? What is that woman talking about????

Next, Storm and London join their loves. Oh, London. I had such hopes for you. Hopes dashed. We start with clips of the Karen-Storm relationship and Storm’s apology, with Karen vowing to go Lorena Bobbitt on him if he messes around. NatG is snarking as Storm tells his story. When the women are all asked about infidelity, Renee reveals that Junior go another women pregnant and that AJ has a brother. Drita called up Junior’s girlfriend and threatened her, standing up for Renee. Next we relive the fighting betweenNatG and London and the taunts about him being a “peacemaker” and not being willing to fight for his woman. Both say things are great, but he says that things are up and down even over the course of a day.  We also learn that the attack in the social club was random. The fact that NatG used social media to put the attacker’s face out there is called a rat move – by Storm and by Drita as well. NatG calls Sammy a rat, Karen calls NatG’s brother a rat. WHOA! We find out that NatG’s brother is a well-respected detective in Philly. I wonder which of the women knew that when she joined the show. Did NatG mean to disclose that????? The others are telling her that if she’s a cop caller, own it but stop using language about being from the streets of Philly and what she’s going to do, etc.

After Storm and London have an intellectual argument over what a “rat” is, Drita looks amused by hearing Storm note that by calling crime stoppers and posting the attacker’s picture, NatG is a rat, she did the “police’s job” for them. I am such a cop caller, because I would have done the same – I just wouldn’t have joined the show and blown smoke about being mob-connected.  Vivica earns her money by getting everyone to stop yelling during “the great rat debate.” After a break, we return with Drita stating that she isn’t surprised by London calling the cops, he’s a 9 to 5 kinda’ guy and it’s what they do. She tells NatG that for someone who is always calling someone a rat she should take that word out of her vocabulary. She again deflects by calling Karen a rat and Renee stands up for her friend, reminding everyone that Karen has never ratted on anyone. London lets us know that his attacker is behind bars and will be going away for a long time for making a very bad decision.  He believes his attacker is where he belongs. I’m with London on this one.

The Drunken Monkey party comes up next. Unless Storm’s threat was edited out, he never threatened anyone, as was claimed. There is a lot of crosstalk about what happened. NatG erupts and claims people won’t allow her to talk although she’s been screaming the whole time. London says nothing happened, even though his girlfriend continues to try to convince everyone something horrific took place. Drita is the most upset that Karen’s (entire) family was attacked that night and can’t understand how someone could do something like that, she can’t get her head around.  Karen says that she must have been able to get her head around it because she was friends with someone who was capable of doing it. Ruh roh. It was only ever a matter of time with these two.  The crises is averted when NatG starts up again.  Renee tells everyone that NatG knows nothing about their lifestyle.  She responds by stating that her family is “a boss, bitch” – her detective brother can’t be happy. Drita and Ang remind Vivica that they talked to her about the attacks on Karen. She is not responsible for what her father did but NatG doesn’t listen.

The next segment is light… it’s only the best threats the wives have thrown out all season.  Two words: Group Therapy… just avoid Dr. Drew or Dr. Jeff.  The wives see the threats as signs of their creativity and note that they are only talking about what they WANT to do, nothing more.

Next they discuss the visit from Victoria GottiSammy comes up again. Karen doesn’t view Gotti as her enemy. Renee mentions that she doesn’t think Gotti is the boss of anything and was shocked that she was there and didn’t want her in her business because they don’t know each other. Ang thinks Gotti speaks “very intelligent” and Renee thinks she did a good job mediating, as everyone points out that Gotti took her side. Karen is asked if she knows how Gotti feels about her and says she doesn’t, but doesn’t care. She would sit down to work things out with her and feels that Gotti is the only one who has the right to criticize her father.

After a break, we’re back to discuss the war at the (Hudson) shore, and we see flashbacks of the fight. Karen says that Natalie was too juvenile to have a conversation with and that’s why the fight started. She is accused by NatG of being jealous.  More arguing until Karen flips and talks about the tape NatG was supposed to have made on which she is using racial slurs. Instead of saying she didn’t do it, she says to Karen, “prove it,” which flips Karen out because she is the mother of a black child. If you needed a reason for your skin to crawl, NatG wins some fan poll during the segment. When the issue comes up a second time, she tells Karen she sounds like she needs counseling. When Karen confronts Ang and Drita, they say she is not their friend, they’ve washed their hands of her. NatG is back to claiming she’s been maligned and maltreated and not allowed to speak from her first day on the show. Ang looks at her like she’s grown a second head, like she doesn’t know who that woman is. I don’t know and don’t care, I’m just glad the first part of the reunion is over and I can recover before the second part airs. I’ll see you then.

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. ♦ Norrth Cafe's BlogTwitterFacebook

    Vile, all of them.

  2. She Stinks! March 12, 2015 at 5:55 am -

    It was too much with the guys, this show is about the women, not them. Tre would fit in with this lot of trash (some of which are felons) quite easily. That should be her next career move.

  3. Norrth March 12, 2015 at 6:52 am -

    I think NatalieG revealed who she really is at the reunion and it’s clear, to me, that the persona she affected for two seasons is all made up.

    • Bad Barbie March 12, 2015 at 8:51 am -

      NatG going to look like a saint when NatD is exposed for what she is really doing here. In due time. This show is dramatic and partly scripted but they do have real life issues and also there’s people who know these clowns.

      • Seusseroo Loving Heart! March 12, 2015 at 10:56 am -

        Calling black people the “n” word & saying I “hate n*ggers” will never make Nat G look like a saint and anyone that listens to that recording and still supports her has issues too.

        • Bad Barbie March 12, 2015 at 12:43 pm -

          I didn’t watch that so I can’t comment on something I haven’t view but if that’s a fact then I agree.

          NatD is just about to contradict herself though.

    My thoughts: Drita looked like she did something to her face – like some fillers in her cheeks? She looked pretty. And, there women scream and swear at each other over the slightest perceived disrespect, however when someone gets their face slashed (out of the blue and not because they were in a fight) and placing a photo of the slasher on social media is considered a rat move? Storm, who seems like a real intellectual giant, stated it was doing the cops’ jobs for them. If it was Karen’s face or her daughter’s face or if someone’s child was taken – I wonder if they’d feel the same.

    • Bad Barbie March 12, 2015 at 12:42 pm -

      Storm is far from smart. And when his brother got robbed and beat up in Miami, he sure knew how to dial 911 real quick.

    • chacha1 March 13, 2015 at 11:24 am -

      Drita is starting to look like Brandi Glanville … two wooden puppet faces

  5. Bad Barbie March 12, 2015 at 8:49 am -

    Ok that gave me a headache…. Didn’t watch but from the recap- (thank you Norrth!)….

    Vivica is washed and looking like Natalie Nunn. YUCK!

    I have already said on other boards that I personally know Giovanni a.k.a “Storm”. He shouldn’t be talking about cop calling. He lived in Miami for many years and when his brother got assaulted and beaten to pulp at a club, he did a whole lot of cop calling then. So much for living for the “Streets”. He is a club promoter Karen, his schedule is 9-4am… no different than a 9-5 and the rest of his money is dirty. They had legit cash at one point but flossed it away. He also has made a few enemies that probably will settle the debt one day. Worry about his other chicks instead. I’ll leave it at that…

    Karen and her Forever 21 dress.

    Didn’t know they made her size. I get that she is not to blame for what her father did but she is to blame for glorifying it and even writing books about the lifestyle she lived because her father was a notorious gangster. The book wasn’t even expressing the traumatic effect that it had on her family and those of the ones he killed. This chick is garbage. Yet, she is soft snitching on herself saying that her dad is doing time because he took the blame for what she did. I am surprised she is still alive. I guarantee you that she wont dare to say all of that nonsense to Victoria. She knows she can’t because in front of her, she really is the daughter of a RAT. At least John died with his code of the streets rep. The Italian Mafia is dead in NY. Let this chick loose in Bushwick and let’s see how tough she is.

    Renee- zzzzzzz. You are not sober. I saw you at your plastic surgeons office and you damn well know that you were on Roxy’s because Percs were too mild. That’s what happens when you do so much coke. If Shahine couldn’t fix that body, nobody can’t. Give it up. Next!

    Drita- she is my favorite but her thugness is whack. You have two daughters. What are you teaching them? You have already been sued twice for bodily harm. You are lucky that you are not in jail too. Grow up and take your meds.

    Big Ange- the real OG here. She is legit gangsta and is loved by the “wise guys”. Drunken Monkey is their crib for a reason. Move that work. She is the only one with money in that group too.

    NatG- gurl, shut up already! Go away. These women will never like you. Go hang out with the dead better and raise your son. Poor London.

    NatD- There is a reason why she is infiltrating this circle and that is to go after Karen next. Plot twist. You’ll see what a rat is. LOL they made it too easy.

    All these losers got the definition of “Rat” twisted to their convenience. STFU with twisting that calling the cops on someone that assaulted you is being a rat.

    Sammy The Bull- RAT TA TA TA!!! And the biggest in History.

    Someone that is stabbed, sliced and almost killed by someone they know and reports them- NOT A RAT. He is not cooperating in exchange for nothing but justice for himself. He was the victim not the co-conspirator saving himself.

    • chacha1 March 12, 2015 at 11:00 am -

      You nailed it with this comment, you put down what most of us think and exactly what I think …. Storm is a mop, hope he gets his and takes that skank Karen with him

      • Bad Barbie March 12, 2015 at 12:40 pm -

        He is a joke and 2 ways out for him – dead or in jail. That’s what usually happens to these “street” thugs. He hasn’t learned a thing. I love the way he or karen don’t mention his daughter. He has a kid.

  6. chacha1 March 12, 2015 at 10:55 am -

    I am so done with these loud mouthed ghetto slugs ….. bye bitches !!! And that Storm, the biggest slug of all, he and Karen deserve each other

    • Seusseroo Loving Heart! March 12, 2015 at 10:57 am -

      Morning Chacha! DITTO!

      • chacha1 March 12, 2015 at 11:02 am -

        Morning Sweetie 🙂

        • Seusseroo Loving Heart! March 12, 2015 at 11:03 am -

          I think I’m done with this show. All they do is fight and it’s so trashy. ALL of them.

          • Bad Barbie March 12, 2015 at 12:37 pm -

            They are too damn old for this! Most are almost 50.

    • RealitytvJunkie March 12, 2015 at 11:28 am -

      Storm and Karen are the worst.

    • Bad Barbie March 12, 2015 at 12:37 pm -

      FACT! He used to be a chilled dude back in the days but once he moved to Miami, it got to his head that he was running the “streets” there. LOL! NOT! He was robbed a few too many times there and moved back to NY.

  7. Seusseroo Loving Heart! March 12, 2015 at 10:57 am -

    I just posted this on the other thread:

    I’m so disgusted and over these hood rats. I can’t anymore with any of them. First off, I like Rene but did she start taking her drugs again because she was back to gangsta Rene last night. Nat G simply disgust me. Big Ang is not a loyal friend. I actually appreciated Drita keeping her trap shut last night. I’m over it.

    • Bad Barbie March 12, 2015 at 12:36 pm -

      Renee is full of shyte. She’s had few rounds of plastic surgery BTW By a GYN in NYC. I’ve seen her there and she can’t preach that she is about that sober life because she was taking roxycotin because percocet was not strong enough. She is like Kim Richards. LIAR!

      • Seusseroo Loving Heart! March 12, 2015 at 12:40 pm -

        Not shocked she’s still a junkie. BB, I am OVER this wack show. They all act like trash!

        • Bad Barbie March 12, 2015 at 12:44 pm -


  8. Seusseroo Loving Heart! March 12, 2015 at 11:11 am -

    I forgot to add:

    Omg…. Natalie wears a freaking dress that she can’t even keep on. What a pig. And London’s clothes were busting at the seams. I bet if he squat his pants would rip in the rear. LOL!

    I don’t like Storm. He’s a street thug and annoying.

    • CNN March 12, 2015 at 11:22 am -

      The chain crap Natalie was ridiculous. She looked like a $10 hooker and was holding it adjusting it or pushing her breast back behind the metal. She is the only one who thought she looked hot. Storm was laughing because I think one of her boobs popped out of her tacky dress and he busted out laughing.

    • Jennymckitty March 12, 2015 at 1:54 pm -

      Every time Nat started yelling, she had to cup her breasts so they wouldn’t pop out. It was so ridiculous. I wish I had seen Drita standing up. She looked great and the top of her outfit was gorgeous.

    • chacha1 March 13, 2015 at 11:18 am -

      Storm is nothing but a male skank and his ass will soon be a mop on the streets of New York from what I have read

      • Seusseroo Loving Heart! March 13, 2015 at 11:26 am -

        I believe it. None of the men on that show are worth shit. Both bums!

  9. RealitytvJunkie March 12, 2015 at 11:27 am -

    Why is Nat G always screaming “suck my d*ck, or “my d*ck is bigger than yours.” It makes her sound and look like a dirty pig, I do not know any man who finds his girlfriend bragging about HER “d*ck” attractive, it’s classless. The more I watch her the more manly she appears, boobs, hair and makeup can make anybody seem feminine. Lipstick on a pig. Nat G’s inner ugliness creeps me out.

    • Bad Barbie March 12, 2015 at 12:34 pm -


    • Seusseroo Loving Heart! March 12, 2015 at 12:41 pm -

      Hahahahaha!!! OMG!! You nailed it!

    THANK YOU NORTTH for your awesome recap! 🙂
    I couldn’t watch the episode without ‘fortification’! 😉
    So I read your recap instead. Believe me, it was way better than hearing all the bleeping sounds!
