I Married A Mobster: Recap Of “Love Hurts”
Lorraine Majewski gave birth to Love in Staten Island, New York in 1971. After having two more children, Lorraine divorces her husband and gets three jobs to support her family. Still money was tight and they struggled financially. Love gets hand me downs from her grandmother’s well to do neighbors. One day a girl sees Love and confronts her, saying that those are her shoes. Love denies it, but the girl insists that she wrote her name on the bottom of the shoes and Love is forced to show them the bottom of her shoes. The girl’s name was there. Love was humiliated and decided right there and then she would never wear hand me downs or other people’s shoes again.
When a friend of Love’s gets pregnant at 14, Lorraine decides to move to a better neighborhood in Staten Island, not realizing that the area was full of mobsters. Lorraine sends Love to a private school where the other students are the sons and daughters of wise guys. Lorraine says she didn’t understand this world where the bad guys were good and the good guys were bad.
When Love is a teen she falls for Chris, a low level thief who goes from stealing car radios to cars. Chris hangs around Love’s house and Lorraine isn’t thrilled. He would show up in different cars all the time and Lorraine suspected he was stealing cars.
After one bad argument, Love decides not to take Chris’ calls. He decides to go to the house and pushes in the door and Love’s mother to get in the house. He grabs Love and drags her out to his car and shoves her in. They drive around a while until he calms down. Meanwhile, Lorraine calls the police and they handcuff Chris and take him in for questioning. Lorraine has finally saved up enough money to buy a new car. One night, soon after she buys it, she hears the dog barking outside. She looks out the window to see her car on fire. She had no fire insurance on it and knew it had to be one of Love’s friends.
Getting away from Chris wasn’t easy. One year later Love meets Ray of the “Untouchables.” She trades up. He has “Italian Stallion” on his license plate and she was in awe of him. Chris takes a back seat to Ray, once he becomes involved with Love. Ray has rules for his girlfriends: no drugs, no smoking, no more than three drinks. Love tells her mother that Ray has a nice family and she has Sunday dinner there.
Ray took care of her every minute of every day. There was plenty of cash and he never had to go to work. They spent their days making love, it was unbelievable, says Love. By 1991, Love and Ray were inseparable. But, both the FBI and the mob had their eye on Ray. Ray gets enforcers from the Gambino crime family. Then there was a scheme regarding the theft of a high end boat. Chris and Ray steal the boat and alter it with a different paint job. When Ray and Chris are arrested for the crime they need Love’s help.
One dark and moonless night, Ray and Chris hide in the trunk of Love’s car as she drives over to Randall’s Island. They locate the boat and blow it up from the inside out. Chris lights the match and runs back to the car and Love takes off, back to Staten Island. Mission accomplished, evidence destroyed. That just reinforced the name that was given to them, "the untouchables."
After the incident, Chris skips town. He does a home invasion gone wrong, and someone is killed during the robbery. Ray and Love become engaged and he buys her a three carat, flawless diamond. Love is thrilled until her friend tells her to think about it; he will probably end up dead or in jail and she will be left with a baby to raise alone. Love decides to think it through and while she tries to make amends with her mother. She takes her mother on a trip to Cancun where they meet a friend of Ray’s.
Reneactment with Erika Schiff
They return one week later and Love learns that Ray has been seen with another woman, her best friend Stacy. Ray was parading her around town. When Love sees them at a bar together she explodes and breaks Stacy's nose. She breaks up with Ray and when they leave the bar, she shoots up his car. The cops show up and take them both in. After the incident they reconcile for a short time. But, then Ray tries to strangle her with a phone cord, she stabs him with a knife, he steals her car and she sets his house on fire.
Weeks later, the other woman moves in with Ray and Love is done. She just wants a normal guy and a normal life. She moves to New Jersey and meets a nerdy guy who is divorced with children. Love reinvents herself. They get engaged, she is happy. One day she is at home alone with the children, giving them baths and there is a knock at the door. It was 2009, and the organized crime task force was looking for her. They showed up after all these years wanting her to confess to the boat crime. They call her new life a scam. If she doesn’t cooperate they are going to have the children taken away from her and arrest her. They know her exe has been in the area and think he has made contact with her.
Love realizes that she has to come clean with her fiancé and tell him who she is. He crumbles. She ends by saying that although she has made bad choices, she is not a bad person.
