Mob Wives: Recap “Fire Away” Ep 210

The fun at Shenanigans continues with Carla and her former "archenemies."


The fun at Shenanigans continues as Renee calls Junior to tell him to pick her up, and leaves Carla alone with Ramona and Karen. They ask if she is glad she came and if she is having a good time with them. Carla says yes. Then the name Drita comes up and Carla cringes. Karen says that Carla is Team Carla. Karen says she only has a problem with one person and she brought that person into her circle. But, both Ramona and Karen say they respect Carla for being loyal to Drita.

Neck brace for thyroid surgery?

Back in Staten Island Big Ang is wearing a neck brace and Drita comes over to visit. Big Ang had a biopsy of her thyroid and needs surgery to remove it. Big Ang talks about a handsome young doctor who tells her to get in a wheelchair. She said it was like a horror movie, going down a corridor with cabinets and medicine. She felt like she was going to the electric chair. Surgery sucks! Drita talks about going to anger management and how she has to learn to argue without using her fists. Big Ang thinks all the fighting is out of control. Drita wants to sit down with Karen and discuss their issues.

Carla calls Joe on the phone, from the Poconos, and tells him about the loser at the bar. She feels that Joe is going to be a big help to her with the kids once he is done with the halfway house. He says he will be done in a few days. Her kids are going to be ecstatic.

Renee's a gun expert!

Karen finds Renee in the cabin. Renee says she decided to stay in the Poconos and calm down. Renee rehashes the scene of the jerk at the bar who called them “b!tches.” Karen thinks the whole thing escalated. Renee doesn’t tolerate disrespect. Karen wants to know what they are going to do today. It’s their last day and Renee wants to get in a little shooting. They all go to the shooting range. Karen says she was 6 when she saw her first handgun under her father’s bed. The instructor gives them safety tips, always point the muzzle of the gun in a safe direction and treat it as if it is always loaded. He says fire arms are for sport. Ramona likes all guns. Renee is really enjoying the whole shooting experience, but Renee can’t hit the target at all. She finally gets in a good shot in and is able to release some of her aggression. Renee and Carla are happy to be going home to Staten Island.

At Drita’s house, she is on the phone with her cousin Jackie who wants her to do some modeling for her swimwear line. Drita says yes and gives her, her measurements: 34D-25-34. Drita is glad to be getting paid for the modeling.

Renee, Junior, AJ and Sydney all go out to a nice dinner. Renee asks how long they have been dating. It’s been 4 months. Renee is happy AJ found a girl who respects him and his parents. Renee is happy to be with her family.

Latex or lambskin condoms! What's the difference?

At Renee’s house, Renee decides she needs to talk to AJ about sex because he is going to a party in NJ and might be sleeping over. AJ doesn’t want to talk about sex with Renee, but that isn’t going to stop Renee. She is prepared to tell him a few things like the difference between latex condoms and lambskin condoms. AJ is getting very embarrassed and says he doesn’t use condoms and then clarifies that he isn’t sexually active. Then they both get up from the living room and Renee chases AJ around the kitchen while they both laugh.

At Karen’s house, Ramona pays a visit to talk about her daughter, Melina’s, birthday. Ramona is getting her a computer, but Melina wants something from her boyfriend, Joe. Melina wants to visit him in jail and Ramona is torn about what to do. Both Karen and Ramona knows how it feels to visit a loved one in jail. Karen thinks she should let her do it, it might comfort her. Ramona says Karina was upset. And Karen answers because Karina had a gun put to her head by a cop and watched her father get arrested. She says she was comforted when she got to see he was alright in jail. Ramona decides she will take Melina for a visit.

Carla and Drita go bowling to have some fun. Drita decides to ask Carla about her trip to the Poconos and if they talked about her. Carla says how did you guess, and then goes into all the drama that happened when Renee drank the vodka and confronted Ramona. Carla says a melee started. Ramona told Renee that Drita was a liar. Drita is getting furious and says she can’t stand Ramona. Carla says that Renee sides with Drita when she is with them, but when she is with Ramona and Karen she sides with Ramona. Drita says Ramona had her nose in the air and always thought she was better than everyone. She was a rich spoiled b!tch! Now she wants to act tough and fight. Drita says Ramona is fiesty because she got popped in the mouth. Scene ends when Drita bowls a strike.

Drita reminds me of a grown up Pebbles Flintstone!

Drita is really heated from her conversation with Carla so she goes to see Big Ang. They both decide to get spray tans. Drita needs one for the modeling gig at her cousin’s house. Big Ang takes off her robe and she is wearing a bikini at age 51. Everyone is impressed. Big Ang is getting over her surgery and likes the tan. Drita is always happy when she is around Big Ang and now she feels ready for her photo shoot. She goes to her cousin’s house where she puts on a few suits and they take pictures. Drita says she is doing things to improve herself like boxing, anger management and modeling.

Bigg Ang fill out a swimsuit like nobody's business!

Melina, 11, and her mother, Ramona go to have a bite to eat after visiting her boyfriend, Joe, in prison. Her daughter says she found the place depressing and she was sad to leave. Tears stream down her face as she tells Ramona she is attached to Joe. Ramona tells her to pray. She asks her if she was scared. Ramona tells her that she used to go visit her grandfather, when she was Melina’s age, and she understands how she feels. It’s hard to say good bye. Ramona says that her children have no relationship with their father or her own father, and now this happens to the boyfriend, the one man in their lives.

Ramona sets Renee straight about Drita's motives for lying.

At Ramona’s house, Renee drops in for a talk. She takes out her phone to show Ramona that she got an email from Drita about what happened in the Poconos. Ramona is seeing red. She tells Renee that Drita lied about everything in order to embarrass and hurt Renee and to break up their friendship and their families. As Ramona talks, Renee literally starts shaking from the aggravation. Renee gets very worked up. Then Renee becomes very angry at Carla, saying she should have stayed neutral. Ramona thinks, Carla shouldn’t have to stay neutral, she is Drita’s friend and isn’t wrong to side with her. Renee decides she needs to have a serious talk with Drita as she leaves. 

The long awaited homecoming of Daddy!

Joe is finished with the halfway house! Carla invites him over for a family dinner. Joe wasn’t allowed to enter their home while he was in the halfway house. She is making a big dinner and asks Joseph to set the table for her. The doorbell rings and it’s Joe. The kids and Carla are excited to see him. Joe looks good! He likes the house. Carla says it’s good to have a man in the house again. They look like a beautiful family sitting at the dinner table. Carla doesn’t know if they will each end up married to different people or find their way back to each other. Time will tell.

But they do make a lovely little family!

MY TWO CENTS: (Opinion)

A lot less drama this week. Here goes. I think Carla only went to the Poconos because the show wanted her to and she got paid for the air time. There is no way in hell that she went for “fun.” Things were put to rest with Karen and Ramona, but she hasn’t spent any time with them since their sit downs, so why would she spend a long weekend with them? I know Renee was there “for” Carla, but Renee clearly hasn’t been herself. Even Karen mentioned that in green screen. Carla was lucky things went as well as they did.

As for Big Ang, I am sorry she needed the surgery and it was such an ordeal. It’s always a scary experience. But, as much as she says she is against fighting,  she is still egging Drita on whenever she talks about fighting Ramona. That’s not the way to keep the peace! 

Personally, I would not find the shooting range a place to relax or to have fun for that matter. It was interesting to see how much Ramona and Renee knew about guns. Renee practically named every gun on the table! I could tell you the difference between a pistol and a rifle and that’s about it. Evidently they picked up on a few things growing up. I’m glad that Renee felt better after hitting her target. Better for her to hit it there than at home.

After Renee and Junior have dinner with AJ and his girlfriend, Sydney, Renee decides it’s time for her to have the “sex” talk with AJ. AJ is already 17, so I’m sure he thinks he knows everything he needs to know about sex. However, having the “sex talk” on television is the height of embarrassment. I’m sure he would have turned red had he been alone with Renee without the cameras. One thing I know, teenagers do not like to talk about sex with their parents. The time to have the talk is when they are preteens, which I’m sure Renee did. I imagine this talk was for entertainment value only. Poor AJ, the things he does for his Aunt Jenn!

The whole business about Melina wanting to visit Ramona’s boyfriend in jail was very touching. Melina is a very sweet, sensitive little girl. She shed some quiet tears, which are the saddest, because you can tell they come from the heart. I could see that Ramona agonized over her decision to take her daughter to see Joe. I think her daughter was mature enough to handle it and we can’t always protect our children from the realities of life. Sometimes we have to expose them to situations we don’t like and be there to walk them through it. It looks like Ramona and her daughter even bonded over this experience. 
Frankly, I was more horrified about what Karen said about Karina’s experience. That had to be extremely traumatizing for her. 

Carla and Drita’s “fun” at the bowling alley was spoiled the second the Poconos came up. Drita is mad saying Ramona lied. Drita is seeing red even as she bowls a strike. But Ramona is also mad saying Drita lied. Ramona took it a step further and swore on her children’s and grandfather’s lives that she is not lying. That carries a lot of weight with Renee and with me. That is not something a loving mother would do, if they were lying. To be honest, I was a bit horrified that Renee asked Ramona to do that, but Ramona did it in a split second, without hesitating. Maybe that is part of the lifestyle? I don’t believe in swearing on people’s lives, but it is extremely persuasive when they do. So what’s next? Will Renee ask Drita to swear on her girls’ lives too?

Drita is so pissed, after bowling with Carla, that she runs to Big Ang. They both decide to get spray tans. Drita needs it for her modeling gig anyway. Big Ang gets rid of her neck brace and wears a swimsuit. I have lots I could say here. First of all I never heard of someone wearing a neck brace for thyroid surgery…ever. Neck braces are for whiplash, or spinal cord injuries. I looked it up and couldn’t find a good reason for the neck brace as a treatment for thyroid surgery. I can only imagine it was just to cover Big Ang’s neck, because maybe she didn’t have any surgery? I didn’t see any issues with her neck when she was getting the spray tan, did you? I’m sorry if she did have a thyroid issue, but if she didn’t, can someone please make up a more plausible excuse, like removal of a bunion on her foot. And I have to mention Big Ang in a swimsuit. I just want to say I never saw anyone fill out a swim suit better. I can’t believe she found one in her size.

Joe Ferragamo finally makes it on the show! Carla looked very happy. It was a very heartwarming scene seeing the family reunited in their home. Carla seems to have softened regarding Joe and open to future possibilities. She even looked sincere too. I am reserving judgment on this one. She just might have been excited because he’ll be moving in and helping out with the kids now. 

Finally, Renee brings Drita’s email to show Ramona what she said. I don’t believe Drita wrote an email, but that’s just me. Ramona and Renee’s little explosive discussion about Drita leaves me wondering how Drita is going to explain her lying about what she said, Ramona said? Renee will not rest until she gets at the truth because now it has put a strain on her relationship with Ramona and tested it. I don’t know if Drita knows she lied or not. Drita lies quite a bit, or she twists the truth so much that she might not think she lied. You know, like she told Karen on the rooftop, “It’s important to state the fact that we weren’t friends when I got together with Lee.” But on the balcony, she said, “I never said we weren’t friends, I always said we were friends.” So it’s hard to know what’s going on in that pretty little head of hers.

What did you think? I’ve love to know!

i think its funny how neither in the recap or your "two cents" did you mention renee saying she was gonna crack carlas head open. if drita would of said that, u would of did a whole blog on it!! also, i may be wrong, but i do believe that you can see an incision mark on big ang's neck when she is getting spray tanned.

@Perri6 said...

Wow Chiara, this is why I can't wait for your 2 cents, I feel the same way! FIRST BIG ANG, I am insulted over the neck brace, and I'm so thrilled you saw something isn't right either! I had same thyroid biopsy, and had Surgery to remove my thyroid, AND NEVER HAD A NECK BRACE! NO SURGEON WOULD GIVE YOU A NECK BRACE, trust me! She really pisses me off, I loved how for the bikini shoot and spray tan she conventiatly removes the brace and has no scar, nothing! I can't even comment on the bikini, I'm so shocked that one fit her! I now know for sure after last weeks scene in the Drunken Monkey(Dritas ALMAMATER) that I did hear right that BIG ANG did tell Drita once you start beating her don't stop! Big Ang is Fueling Drita more, and Drita doesn't need any fuel to begin with! I thought the gun scene was crazy, I don't get it, and just thought if anyone can find someone in the poconos that has all those guns, it would be Karen lol! Renee has not been right at all, and I know its a lot to do with Junior, however the scene with her and Karen on the porch at the poconos said a lot to me, Renees eyes LOOKED ANGRY! I really think what Drita said Ramona Said about her family is seething inside Renee, she is a smart cookie, her wheels are turning, she beleives Ramona because she sweared on her kids life and graves of dead relatives, I'm 100% Italian, Trust me this means GOD CAME TO HER and told her Ramona is telling the truth! Not that we all didn't know that#OBVIOUS! I think Renee realizes that Drita really feels this way about her family, but try to put it on Ramona, I can't wait to see this play out, however its killing me to see Renee like this! I can't relate to what Ramona is going thru and the decision she had to make to bring her daughter, but that scene brought me to tears, I loved seeing Ramona as a mature, responsible Mother and Woman, she is wonderful and classy! Karen has calmed down a lot, I like how she is trying to keep the girls together and helping Renee, I always said she was one of my favorites, and I love how she respects carla for being Loyal to Drita, both Karen and Ramona know what this means! This is what Drita is not, drita is not loyal, she doesn't belong she doesn't know the 1st thing about loyalty, and that's what's eating away at Renee! Watching the girls at the Cabin, I couldn't help to think of Winnie the Pooh, what made me think of this was Carla, she is so Dreary, boring BLAH -she reminds me of EEYORE the Donkey, HO-HUM! I will not compare the rest to who I think they are lol! I thought it was weird Carla went, so thank you it makes total sense to me now reading your 2cents, camera time etc, I agree! I will end it with Drita and that pathetic phone call where she obviously set it up, so she can give her FAKE MEASUREMENTS! She just doesn't stop lying! I have some advice for Drita- Keep your clothes on, you look better in clothes!

Chiara Soprano said...

I didn't mention Renee was going to crack Carla's head open JUST LIKE I didn't mention Big Ang said to Drita once you start beating "Ramona" don't stop" JUST LIKE I didn't mention it that Drita said about Ramona, “If she’s five feet in front of me I’m going to punch her in the f***ing face!" I don't mention a lot of things. There is a lot that happens and I don't have a transcript. They all say plenty about how they are going to beat each other up, but the one who throws the first punch is Drita. Are you happy now?

Chiara Soprano said...

Perri, we are on the same page. Thanks for reading and commenting!

Mob Mistress said...

LOL @ Anonymous, thank you for your support! Thank you for telling Chiara what she would've done in regards to Drita. I am going to do a post in your honor a whole post when my time permits, just for you. I hope you like it as much as Chiara's recap.

Hey Perri,

I don't know if Bigg Ang's intentions are to fuel the flames. Maybe Bigg Ang understands Drita's anger or maybe she herself is displeased that the women will not allow bygones to be bygones.

Chiara,

Thanks for another entertaining recap! I laughed & laughed. Now I think Drita's body looked ridiculously great in her Pebbles outfit. It complimented her figure. I did not care for the styling. I laughed out loud & shook my headI thought the make up was awful. However, the pictures may come out wonderfully.

i wasn't addressing YOU MOb Mistress!! i was addressing the person who wrote the blog you FUCKING CUNT!!!!

Mob Mistress said...

I am addressing you. You are on my site. You sure stick around here don't you, thanks again for your undying support! I hope you have an awesome Monday.

Deana3452 said...

I totally agree about the guns. I know some people swear by it, but it just stresses me out. I feel Chiara does a great recap. I feel like I could read the recap part and know exactly what happened without watching the show. On a funny note, my husband was watching the show with me last night and when Joe (Carla's husband) made an appearance he said, "What, is he like 20 years old?" lol I, too, think he looks very young...

Anonymous said...

I wish I could just read a "recap" without the "2 cents". Is there a blog about the Mobwives like that? I hate reading skewed reviews.

Chiara Soprano said...

All blogs are pretty much skewed. However, if you don't like the TWO CENTS...which I highlight rather boldly..then you can read the recap portion and move on...or better yet just move on. Thanks

Anonymous said...

I agree 100% with you on drita keeping her clothes on because that 2 piece bikini didn't look to good on her ......her stomach looked weird and her legs looked to skinny....she looks better with clothes on.

Mob Mistress said...

LOL! If you hate it you just revealed that you are extremely obtuse. What dummy visits a site or reads a blog they don't like?

You!

teammobwives666 said...

I think you and Mob Mistress do a great job with the recaps of the Mob Wives. I also think that people don't know, or care, how much of your time goes into being as accurate as you can be in writing this blog.

I have commented a couple of times, BUT I enjoy reading every time you do the recaps. If there is something that I don't agree with, I do NOT come here and call you nasty names, that is totally out of line.

Everyone has their favorites on Mob Wives, that's a given, but I see no sense in coming in here and being so idiotic with the comments.

Chiara and Mob Mistress keep, keeping us informed, this is an awesome blog~

M.M. you are right. They are dumb!!!! Chiara great recap as always. Someone wants attention. Anonymous should try VH1!!!

CHIARA & MOB MISTRESS YOU BOTH ARE DOING A FANTASTIC JOB. I LIKE TO READ ANYTHING YOU HAVE TO SAY ON YOUR BLOG. KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB THERE'S ALOT OF US THAT DO APPRECIATE YOUR WORK

English Mobwives Luva said...

Well, I love the recaps on mobwives blogspot, and the two cents commentary! Being in England, I don't get to see the show on Sunday and I need my Mob Wives update fix! I usually see the show on monday night or tuesday, so I'm glued to live Twitter on Sunday, and avidly waiting for Chiara's recap on monday. Thank you Chiara for doing such a great job and to Mobwives blogspot, I don't know what I would do without you!

Chiara Soprano said...

Luva, we appreciate all of our readers' support, but your comments were one of the nicest! We're so glad you enjoy the blog and I am happy to write the recaps esp for fans like you!

Lizzy MacDonald said...

I still think u should do a blog comedy thing about the condoms like me and u were talking about. It could be similar to the crumbs crumbs crumbs only with condoms condoms condoms.

Chiara Soprano said...

The idea of the condoms might be funny, but I'm sure it was embarrassing to AJ and I don't want to embarrass him any more than he already was.

Deana3452 said...

Teammobwives brings up something I have wanted to say. I REALLY do not understand people coming on here and calling the authors names...I don't agree with everything, but my God, what is the point? I was thinking about this the other day...I was on Twitter and I was astounded at things I was seeing. I might not be certain Mob Wives cast member fans, but I sure as heck wouldn't go on their twitter page and call them names...doesn't make a bit of sense.

GREAT RECAP!

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

Mob Mistress said...

I've made nasty tweets to two Mob Wives in response to them lying on the site. First I ignored it and then when they kept it up I addressed them. I wasn't nice about it nor do I regret it.

Anonymous said...

Great recap, thanks.

I can't even about the photo shoot. Hot. Mess. Keep ya clothes on because that lying on the couch pose looks like a lo-rent prison calendar they can't give away for free.

I don't get why Renee was so mad at the women. they were the ones who shut the guy down and it's not like he was their friend. I give credit to anyone brave enough to go to the gun range with Renee when she's in hyper mode, love her tho.

So sweet that Ramona's daughter wanted to do something nice for someone else for her b'day.

not a mob wives fan said...

considering no one else is going to say it i will! drita looked $20 a bj hookerish. thigh high boots, bathing suit, lousy makeup job and add the earrings, she looked more than a hot mess. it was drita disaster. mistress please she didn't look good at all. i think this site is too nice when it comes to the lot of them. drita is just the most disgusting to me.

Deana3452 said...

MM-I understand getting your point across...I was talking about the person above who was calling you names...they didn't have to go ballistic at you for no reason...

Karen Archer said...

To the spineless writer who refers to the Mob Mistress as a cunt. Pull your head out of your ass and find another blog to read. The fact that you remain anonymous speaks volumes about your lack of character and balls.
I wouldn't piss on a classless whore like you if you were on fire.

Karen Archer (see I`m not hiding)

CeeCee said...

Great Recap!
Chiara ur right, about the fact that Drita might not know if she lied or not, she could have heard it from somebody and then just went with it...but now that the Fire can not be contained she is sticking to what she said, while wondering to herself if what she heard was true or not...
Or it could all just be a lie.

I don't know anything about Drita personally,
(and i am a proud Karen Gravano Fan;-)
But i will say this....because i had a good day and i feel like giving some advice....

If the people around Drita really cared about her, they would not keep pushing and encouraging her..
They would try 2 calm her down, Instead of keep poking at her like she's a tiger at the circus...
trying 2 make her mad...
just because they like 2 see her sharp teeth and hear her loud roar.

I don't think that's right.

She has 2 learn 2 calm herself down, regardless of what people say 2 her, its the sad part of being an adult.
We have 2 keep ourselves in check, we can't go off like we did in elementary school, when that irritating kid got 2 the last swing b4 u did...(i was always the last 2 the swing)..But anyways thats beside the point, The point is that she has 2 learn not give people a reaction about everything..
Smile:-)Shrug it off and keep it moving.

As far as everything else goes Who Knows!?! Lol! I can't figure it out anymore!:-)

Chiara Soprano said...

Cee Cee I agree with you and you make sense. What I don't understand is that Drita is aware of her aggression enough to try boxing and anger management. Then she says the breathing techniques the therapist taught her work in calming her down BUT she doesn't have time to breathe when she gets angry, so she isn't going back. What are you going to do? LOL I think she likes to fight or needs to fight because she is insecure and afraid.

Axxia said...

Chiara, I just wanted to say that I may not agree with all your opinions (I happen to love Drita and think Karen and Ramona are ridiculous and petty) but I really do appreciate your comments and they certainly entertain me.

This is a great site for a Mob Wives fan no matter who's side you're on. I don't understand why people must hate so horribly when they disagree. Personally, I think life would be boring if we all thought the same way.

Thank you for taking the time for putting together this site...it's awesome!

Chiara Soprano said...

Axxia, I am happy to hear that you enjoy our blog and took the time to comment, especially because you are a Drita fan. As fans, we are all entitled to our favorites and to our opinions. I'm glad you can see that and in the end, the success of the show is really what matters. All the Mob Wives contribute to making it a hit and they all deserve credit.

Anonymous said...

I think you're on to something. Drita lies so much it sometimes seems like she doesn't know what's real anymore. But I guess she has no choice but to keep in going now, if she admits anything she really loses face.

For the passive-aggressive stuff, I just think it's funny that somebody's now demanding you find them another blog they'll like better. While you're on that, don't forget they need their dog walked, shopping done and various body parts wiped.

CeeCee said...

LOL!!! Chiara I just read ur comment and i can't stop laughing!Lol!!!
Ur right shes tried everything and nothings working!LMAO!!! Its the way u said it! Lol! I gave this Long explanation,LOL trying 2 be nice, and U came out with the TRUTH!!!

P.S. U know how i said we'r twins, i'm the twin that tries 2 sugar coat everything, and Ur the twin that gives it 2 people straight!
LOL!!! We balance each other out! Lol!!!

Monique said...

I've seen Drita's photos from the shoot online and all I can say is two words - PHOTOSHOP OVERDOSE!

She almost looks like another person. They photoshop her body and her face! Looks so fake. At least we all know what she really looks like in real life - a stunning supermodel - NOT!!!!! LOL

Funlady28 said...

If you feel that strongly about the bloggers, why are you here?! I never agree with MM or Schiara (Drita fan) but to come here and call them names is ridiculous.

TWEETPOLICE said...

MobMistress & Chiara certainly do not need my help, they are more than capable of handling themselves. BUT I feel compelled to address "Anonymous #2": 1. If you don't like the blog, go back to reading Calvin & Hobbes. 2. If you think you can do a better job (amassing more than 1 million hits blog away) 3. In your spare time ( after collecting glass bottles for the 5 cent refund) go read the 1st Amendment in the Bill of Rights. Lastly MY 2 cents.. if your mother had spent her time raising you properly instead of lying on her back, perhaps you would have turned out better. If you or anyone else want to comment me, #bringit you can find me on Twitter. I have nothing to hide especially who I am.

Chiara Soprano said...

CeeCee, I was never a fan of sugar coating because some people aren't too bright and miss your whole point. So I keep my comments as clear and direct and possible. I love reading your comments and knowing you enjoy my style and agree with me LOL

Chiara Soprano said...

Monique, between photoshopping and airbrushing I have to wonder if any celebrities look like themselves. I have seen Renee, Ramona, Karen, and Big Ang in person and they look just like they do on television, actually even better. I was planning on meeting Carla and Drita this season, but they blocked me and started to bash the blog, so that's out.

Chiara Soprano said...

Funlady28, I'm glad you commented as a Drita fan. I agree and there is room for everyone's opinion. Carla is really my least favorite, always has been. But our opinions are based on what we see and how we interpret it, which might be true or not.

Chiara Soprano said...

To everyone who took the time to comment, we do appreciate it and welcome all opinions. The recaps really do take me at least 4 hours or more to write and post. It's good to know you are reading and enjoying them. Thank you!

Jennifer said...

I think it's funny that Drita and Carla blocked you. Carla blocked you because you outed her age. Drita blocked you because you called her out about her behaviour (UK spelling). She does speak candidly and often about "beating" people up. She even compared a photo shoot to fighting. I think the reason she wants to make up with Karen is because Carla is getting along with her and going places. Even though Carla lies about enjoying it then tells Drita that she was uncomfortable. (Yeah, why didn't she tell Ramona at the bar?) I genuinely don't like Carla bso that's fine. Drita, I'm 2/2 on her. I think she genuinely wants to reconcile then I think NO, she has motives. I don't know her history; she could be shady. I like Ramona, straight to the point and to be honest definitely the prettiest out of the crew. Carla, should have told the truth about her age, then she would have gotten some props for her up keep. Oh, well she looks OLD for "35"!

Chiara Soprano said...

Carla just doesn't lie about her age. You recall she told Renee she would not leave Drita's party to go to Ramona's? But she told Ramona she thought her party ended at one. Then Ramona says she got a tweet from Carla saying her kid was sick...and it's not the only time she flip flopped. Drita's behavior for a 35 year old is ridiculous, you would think she would have learned a lesson after the red eye?
I tend to agree with everything you said in your comment.

Jennifer said...

I LOVE how she goes on and on about hitting Ramona (BY ACCIDENT, cos she swung and MISSED Karen) when she scrapped her with her ring. Ramona had a little blood and didn't even notice till the end of the fight and someone had to point it out she didn't notice it herself.Some great punch eh? Why doesn't she talk about her red eye? Why doesn't she ever admit that maybe she did get had. I admit that fight was 2:1. However I think Ramona jumped in because she was trying to break them up and just got frustrated with Drita's behaviour (U.K spelling).

For someone who has kids and is always talking about being a role model, it's a joke. Let's see:
(Quote not entirely accurate but close)

"A photo shoot is like fighting, once your able to get the skill it never goes away" :-/

Great role model mummy (UK spelling) dearest, great role model!

Chiara that's awesome that you've met most of them. When you say Carla and Drita blocked you, do you mean twitter? WTF? How mature! You would think they'd be thrilled their show is generating this kind of buzz.

I was amazed at Big Ang in that bikini. I would have never guessed that she had such a bod!

Drita's eye make up at the photoshoot couldn't have been worse. Her shape is good, but that make up was awful.

Yes they both blocked me and Mob Mistress weeks ago. As a result I often miss what is going on with them and they are missing out on blogs and exposure. However, if I catch something I still might blog it if there is nothing else going on with the wives who follow us. Now we have 5 more of them...oh well.

I LOVE this blog check it every day. BIG shout out from the U.K. It's ashame. Even though get VH1 here, everything is just so behind. I search the internet for websites that post videos. This undoubtedly is ONE of the BEST blogs there is. Just one more question Chiara, do you think if Drita or Carla (the 45 year old one not the "35" one) didn't block you, you'd support them more? Not that I disagree with anything you say because you've made me see the light with those two. But I'm just wondering (I know I started a sentence with a but, but I've had three buds this evening).

Jennifer, if they hadn't blocked me and posted information about appearances or projects, I would certainly blog it. But I am not going to make a special effort to specifically seek out their activities. To be honest, I write it as I see it, when it comes to the show. It's opinion. I'm not going to go out of my way to be supportive of two people who lie and bash our blog saying we are friends of Karen and Ramona, even after Jennifer Graziano herself stated we are independent bloggers.

I do NOT believe those were Dritas measurements. Everything looked really tight on her. Too tight. Thats all I'm gonna say so as not to offend her...

Well, this is my first time coming across this blog so I just wanted to comment on the characters on this show. Initially, I was a fan of Karen's but she has proven herself to be a phony and contradictory of who she represented herself as when she first came on the show. Yes, Drita said her and Karen weren't friends AT THE TIME when she started a relationship with Lee (she later on said, "I never said we were not friends". I see how it is easy to misunderstand, however, what I believe she meant is that she never disagreed that they never had a friendship - they DID - just not when she started a relationship with Lee. Because they have both said, they had a good friendship. THIS is where I think they both have a disagreement (when the friendship ended) because they both have different opinions of the TIME in question and there is no evidence to support either of their opinions. Simply their word) Drita has her problems without a doubt but in my opinion, as much as Drita can be considered a liar, so can Karen (I lie, I think Karen can be considered more of a liar). She went about saying how Renee was a Mob Groupie and yet she asks us to "Check her blood line" and we can't go a week without hearing "When my father co-operated" . She grows to be a bigger hypocrite weekly.

I don't know how Chiara & MM deal w/ these transparent lame ass folks coming on here pretending like they don't have an agenda!!!!!

(I just wanted to comment on the characters.)

Sure thing but you talked about two & tried to make Karen the villain. Drita is ame for sleeping w/ Lee & not telling her friend. She's XTRA lame for then justifying it by saying they weren't friends because Karen moved away. Bigg Ang & Renee are my favorites. Drita is great for laughing @ her wannabe thug persona! Karen is alright. She entertaining when she's raging mad. I do like her when she's giving Karen solid advice. I'm still not over her WTF moment chat with Carla. Carla is like a lamp w/ bad wiring. The owner keeps it for decoration but it ain't worth shit. Ramona seems like she has an axe to bury. She'd love to bury between Drita's eyes. She's alright too. Renee & Bigg Ang are lovable women. They both make me laugh nonstop.

To the message written about Drita not being Karen's friend because Karen moved away. That's ridiculous. My friend has moved to New York, I'm in London. I haven't seen her in years. Does it mean we're not friends? No. We're still friends we don't keep in contact everyday sometimes we can go MONTHS without speaking. However, I would NEVER EVER date a guy she was in a relationship with for "7 years" (Brackets cos apparently they were together but cheating, lol) without telling her. That's an open wound because it makes you question her motive in the first place. The fact that Karen had to hear it from someone else and NOT her friend, who she was close to for years is what hurts her. Drita just tossed Karen's feelings to the side and on TOP OF THAT, she was pissed at Karen for writing about Lee in her book. Like WTF?! She was with him for YEARS, how can she NOT write about him. She met him first and Drita met him through her. So she can write anything she damn likes about him.

Drita's excuses are pure bs. I have friends I've lost touch with, but if I hooked up with their exes damn straight I would let them know. Otherwise, they're going to be upset, and "We weren't friends, we hadn't talked in a while" ain't gonna cut it. We're not 5, and that's straight disrespectful. The only excuse for doing that would be if I'm a narcissist and don't care about anyone's feelings. Which, yeah, probably is Drita, but she should own it and stop making excuses that don't make any sense. Not talking to someone every day doesn't equal not giving a damn about them at all, unless you're Drita. And that being true, you have to wonder about Drita's motives, was she using Karen, was she trying to get close to Lee, did she ever actually care about her or was she always angling for her man.


And please. Everybody agreed that Renee used to go a little overboard with the Mafia Princess routine. We saw her introduce herself as "Anthony's daughter" instead of Renee, to people who didn't even know who Anthony was. They all reference their bloodlines from time to time, but Renee used to do it all the time. It doesn't make her a bad person but it also doesn't make Karen a hypocrite.

Ok, I couldn't even make it through all the comments before having to comment. 1st off, anonymous, keep your name calling to yourself. It's really annoying and shows how immature you are, in retrospect, makes me think your opinions are useless.
As far as this whole drita & Karen thing, Drita might not have her stories strait every time she speaks, but besides that one instance on the roof top, what else has she really lied about? Don't wanna hear her measurements bc u don't know and I don't wanna hear about what Ramona said about Junior. I don't care if Ramona swore on her children, regardless of what it is, its just words and I absolutely believe she has the capability of doing that. Ramona is very clearly a liar. I.E. she told her daughter she visited her grandpa in jail when she was her age, wait, I thought you were completely sheltered about all of that growing up....what do u think her parents told her?

crazieshayzie said...

And how in the hell do you know so much about guns and shooting them, if you are so "against" this lifestyle. And was anyone paying attention when Ramona was going off about Drita at Renees house? She's saying Drita is trying to ruin our relationship, break up your family blah blah blah. Did Drita tell her that?? Of course not, so why start a lie to create more drama TO HURT RENEE AND DRITAS RELATIONSHIP??? BC as Drita said, shes a black crow, "I HATE DRITA" that's really what she sounds like. Does anyone wonder why Ramona hates Drita so much?? Don't wanna hear its bc of Karen, bc that's not true...there's more to it then that, obviously. Renees party, ramona said to Drita "get on the Mic and tell everyone what you've been saying the last 2 years about me". Ramona is not who she appears to be. Where did this tough guy attitude come from? You can't tell me she was acting like this when she was married. No way, I won't believe it. This is new for her and she is clearly a psycho. She is a lot of talk, I can't wait to see Drita and her throw down, then people can really see what she's about. Now a couple other things, does anyone remember the first season??? Drita hooked up with lee while Karen was in the witness protection program with her father, anyone know how she could have gotten in touch with her to tell her about lee? Karen is over reacting and to bring it up so many years later, is a joke. Get over it. Drita proved her loyalty when Karen came back in town. Straight up, she proved it when she got in Renees face and defended Karen about having the right to come home and how much was Drita talking good about Karen for their relationship. Drita was completely blindsided by Karens anger. and its ashame people don't see through Karen (and ramona). It's truly laughable. I think the rooftop, and Drita saying there weren't friends was coming from anger, and he fact they weren't "in touch". That would've been a better term bc Drita obviously hates the fact she lost a friend in Karen and I believe she would like to mend it. Side not: big ang didn't tell Drita not to stop hitting ramona, she said Drita wouldn't stop...as in you'll be so angry, you'll just keep going. and lastly, carla did not wanna go on the trip, tv had to be the reason...but I just love it when she is at the table and ramona said "are u glad your on our team????". What the hell? She is demented. I don't know why carla is even trying honestly. All the shit they still say about her, the way they talk about and treat her bestie....carla knows Drita and like she told renee, Drita isn't going to make that up about junior out of no where, something was said. if Drita was trying to start drama, why wouldn't she tell renee??? She looked uncomfortable when renee confronted her bc she doesn't wanna cause more pain for renee. All of this Is driving me crazy that no one sees through ramona and karen, everybody wants to come down on Drita for lying and all that. When there is a few instances Karen has lied, ramona has lied and Drita is trying to better herself. She's trying to get better and move on. People wanna blow up on Drita fighting, yet Karen and ramona were a Damn circus act at Renees party breaking plates and screaming and hollering like crazy people, and both Karen and ramona are ALWAYS ALWAYS talking about kicking dritas ass and checking her bloodine bc she's coming for her. Hypocrites, and I've been saying it since day 1. I have so much more that I feel gives me a great argument on why if this was happening in our real life, most people wouldn't feel the same way. Thanks for reading and I hope it makes sense bc I think its sad that Drita is so hated. She doesn't deserve that, especially when people are believing and listening to Karen and ramona, I would LOVE to personally give them a pieces of my mind!!

Crazie,

Where in the hell do you get your information? Karen was never part of the witness protection program. You are entitled to your opinion. However, you have a lot of facts wrong. Thanks for commenting.

Crazieshayzie is crazy. You would think she knows the mob wives. IT IS NOT THAT SERIOUS. It is only a tv show.
