Housewives mopping, dusting and blogging sums us up. Our launch pad was VH1's Mob Wives. We've added ID's I Married A Mobster, other shows & mafia/gangster movie commentary to our blogging mix. Basically we are 'Miserable Often Bitchy Wives' (+one male), a blogging cocktail of the shows & movies we love to watch. It's our opinion and we're sticking to it.

Well Renee announces Junior is/has moved in to her house in episode 8. She claims it’s for AJ’s benefit, but the other women have their doubts. One reason that caused Renee to allow Junior to move in is that he went out and bought her David’s Pumpkin Seeds. Yes, pumpkin seeds! Now my interest is peaked as to why Renee loves pumpkin seeds so much, almost as much as she loves Junior. Carla smirked at the pumpkin seeds comment, and Karen said, “Pumkin seeds, really Renee? Pumpkin seeds?”
