Mob Wives: Recap “What Goes Around” Ep. 213

Carla is at the "heart" of all rumors!
Check out the necklace if you don't believe me.

Renee has to deal with the realization that Junior wore a wire for months and was taping her father. In the blink of an eye Junior took everything from her. He used her to get close to her father. They replay all the moments where Junior was trying to get close to Renee and promising her a future together, all the while knowing he was working for the FBI and there was no future for them.

In Karen’s apartment she gets a call from her mother. Karen’s mom asks about Renee. She compares Junior’s situation to Sammy’s, and she feels for Renee as a mother trying to protect AJ. News spreads like wildfire. She says Karen and Gerard came through it stronger and so will AJ. Karen says her mother is the glue who kept the family together. Karen’s mother tells her that Drita was never a real friend. Renee will learn who her real friends are now. She says she is proud of Karen for going back to Staten Island with her head held high and true to herself.

Drita reads the newspaper article and is sick to her stomach. She decided to go see Renee even though they haven’t spoken since the Poconos. She wants to be there for Renee. Renee opens the door and hugs Drita. This proves to Renee that she was wrong about Drita, and that she is loyal to her and their friendship. Renee appreciates it. Drita says it is killing her to see what this is doing to Renee. How could Junior do this?  She can’t understand it. Renee says Junior is not “ratting,” it’s a betrayal beyond everything. And Junior cooperated before he even moved in with her, just to put her father in prison! Drita says what Junior did is beyond lying and cheating, much worse than what Lee did. Junior’s betrayal of Renee is worse than anything. Renee wants to know, deserves to know if Junior really did love her? She needs to know if it was real. She says, if he loved her he wouldn’t have hurt her like this. Was it all just a lie? Were the last three months all just a lie?

Karen goes to record her audio book, chapter 11. Karen gets emotional. It’s a hard chapter and the turning point of her life when her whole world changed. It’s the part where Sammy tells the family he is going to cooperate, and everyone they knew turned their backs on their family. Karen recalls reacting with so much anger at the time. Karen reads on and then reads a few parts about Lee. She put Lee in the book because he was a big part of her life. She mentions Drita and how they became friends. Karen says that people who don’t like the truth, won’t like the book. 

At Drita’s house, her trainer, Anthony, shows up. He mentions that her boxing match is coming up soon. They practice sparring in the yard. Drita is nervous about the match, but she wants to do it. Drita brags about her “rocket” and her “right hook” as she displays her fist proudly in the air. Boxing makes her feel good, she gets a rush from boxing. However, she has to protect her face because she has gone back to modeling and is doing well. Her trainer thinks she is good to go.

At Renee’s house, Bigg Ang stops by because she is worried about Renee. Renee tells her she is avoiding people because of what Junior did. Renee is upset because she is being called a “rat’s something.” Renee is worried about AJ. Bigg Ang tells her to leave AJ alone. Renee wants to save her son from people who want to hurt him for what his father did. Renee has an attack of guilt and blames herself for the way she treated Karen so badly years ago. Bigg Ang tells her to pull it together for AJ. Renee says she will never forgive Junior.

Karen goes to see Renee. Renee is busy packing Junior’s things up in boxes and she tells Karen she is moving on with her life. There will never be a future for them, she knows that now. Renee appreciates having Karen there because she understands what AJ is going through. Renee cries and tells Karen that she apologizes to Karen’s parents over and over every night. Karen tells her that they have to separate themselves from their father’s choices and from Junior’s choices. Renee decided she has to be loyal to herself. She has to stand up for herself, she wants to live and be happy. She has a new life. She can’t call her dad or Junior if she needs someone now. She hugs Karen and tells her she loves her. She goes back to her packing and Karen tells her she is proud of her for letting go.

Drita is back at the gym to get some sparring in. Anthony, her trainer, sets her up with Andrew, her sparring partner. Drita says she has won most of her fights. She is in “fighter mode, dying to get into the ring and feels like ROCKY.” Drita finds it hard to stick with the boxing rules, she just wants to let loose. She says boxing is supposed to control her temper, but it’s “getting her heated!” She thinks maybe it’s not healthy.

Think before you speak, just sayin'

At Fusion, Carla and Karen go to have a bite to eat. Karen says she thinks Renee is stronger than she thought. Carla says they all thought that Junior wasn’t good for Renee and maybe this is a blessing. Carla says there was a lot of talk from Renee about Junior’s attitude changing and they were fighting a lot and Junior was acting weird. She says she thought something was up with him. Karen thinks it had to do with Renee being upset that Junior was going back to prison. But Carla says a few people on the street have been asking what’s up with Junior. Karen is confused by what she means. Carla says she thinks Renee “knew something was coming.” Karen gets the feeling that Carla is insinuating something and she should be careful how she chooses her words.

It’s Christmas time. Renee goes to a yoga class for peace and quiet in her life. “Breathe, serenity, peace and quiet” are words Renee is not used to in her life. Renee’s friend Nikole is there and Renee confides in her that someone told her that Carla thinks Renee knew Junior was cooperating with the Feds. Renee says she would never set her father up. Renee loves her family and she would never do anything to hurt her father. Renee says she will confront her on this. Nikole says throw out the garbage (meaning Carla).

"I'm done being nice, how much more can I be nice?"
Maybe just a little more...read on

Drita, Bigg Ang and Carla meet at the spa to get their nails done. Carla is pissed from the get go. She says she hasn’t spoken to Renee since news has come out. She says Renee is psycho. She says Renee is totally wrong about her, she is bi-polar and she has convinced herself that Carla said something just to get mad at her. She says Renee is paranoid since Junior became a rat. It’s not her fault Junior’s a rat. Drita says she has only heard people say they feel bad for Renee. Carla says Renee has a big mouth and talks about everyone. She should feel glad that people support her. Carla says Renee is not a true friend, she is a puppet with strings and has people talking in her ear. Carla is done being nice. Renee should go be friends with someone else.

Drita goes back to the Evolution gym and wants to talk to her trainer, Anthony. She says she doesn’t want to call off the fight, but she needs to call it off. She enjoys fighting too much to the point she is willing to box in order to “sugar-coat” her desire to fight. She says she is being smart and walking away. Her kids come first. The best thing for her to do is not to fight. Her trainer feels she has some skills and he is disappointed she won’t be fighting, but she has to do what is best for her. She is proud of herself.

Joe pops in to Carla’s house. It’s Christmastime and Carla isn’t going to worry about Renee. She wants to focus on her children and spending Christmas all together with their father. She is concentrating on her family. Joey says he wants Joe to stay over Christmas Eve and wake up there to open presents in the morning. 

AJ and Renee go out to eat. Renee is concerned about AJ. She feels he will be disappointed in Christmas because his grandfather and father won’t be spending it with them. He says he is ok, but that won’t stop Renee from worrying. AJ says, “That’s life.”

MY TWO CENTS

Oh where do I start? I woke up with my brain running with this blog. Here’s what I decided to do. I will take on the women one by one this time, instead of situation by situation. 

Ramona wasn’t even in this episode. I missed her “keeping it real” attitude and there were a couple of scenes that could have used her input…enough said.

Bigg Ang did not play a major role, as usual. Though Renee loves her to death, I didn’t find her very comforting at all, but at least she did go to see her. I don’t know how many times she said the words “rat” and “snitch,” but it was a lot. I didn’t think it was cool for her to take the newspaper over to the clothing store owned by her sister to show her the headlines. I would have been more concerned about being with Renee than adding to the gossip.

Karen proved herself to be Renee’s best friend throughout this whole mess. No one could have predicted, when the series started, that any of this was going to happen. It was only a year ago that Renee wasn’t very welcoming of Karen and was judging her for what her father did, yet Karen put that all behind her soon after season one started. She, of all people, could have been bad mouthing Renee now, but she proved her loyalty to Renee and their friendship time and time again. My heart ached a little for Karen when she got choked up reading the part of the book where Sammy tells them he is cooperating with the Feds. Her emotions flooded right back as though she went back in time for a moment. I’m glad she read a few parts about Lee and Drita. Although she didn’t read significant amounts of those parts, it was enough for Drita to get a small taste of what she missed by not reading it. And, I was glad to hear from Karen’s mother on the phone. She said all the right things, namely, that she is proud of Karen for coming back with her head held high and Drita is no real friend of hers. Just when I think I couldn’t respect Karen more…I do!

As for Renee, it’s heartbreaking to watch her whole world turned completely upside down. As a mother, as a daughter and as a (ex) wife, her emotions are raw and her spirit is broken. I think Renee never really let go of Junior emotionally, in the past. Deep down I think she always considered him her husband and that they would get back together one day. His betrayal of her, their son and her father is as bad as it gets in that lifestyle. It’s even beyond all comprehension that he could turn on his own family and the man who considered him a son. Maybe it’s a good thing that all this happened during the filming of Mob Wives, because Renee has gotten tremendous support, prayers and love from fans. I always thought Renee was a strong woman, but she not only surprised Karen with her strength, she surprised a lot of us. I’m glad this was filmed months ago because we now know how well Renee is doing and that she is moving on with her life and living it to the fullest. 

Drita, Drita, Drita…where shall I start? Shall we start with the good news or the bad news?  Ok the good news first. Drita went over to support Renee! She did the right thing even though she was concerned about what she heard from Carla about the trip to the Poconos. I am going to hand it to her, I did not expect that at all. It certainly was a step in the right direction for the sake of their friendship. You don’t stay away from friends during times of crisis, something not everyone on the show has learned (cough, cough).

Now the bad news…more boxing. Too much of the episode was about boxing. First, Anthony, Drita’s trainer from Evolution, comes to her house for a “workout” in the yard. How many trainers would do that? Maybe just the ones who want to be on television and promote their business? It’s just not practical. But anyway, it seems he has set up a “match” for Drita, where she can fight an opponent. Drita wants to do it. And, as always, she is back to her old ways talking about her fist, as her weapon, her “rocket” her “right hook.” Boxing makes her feel good and gives her a rush! Not exactly the kind of talk of someone turning over a new leaf is it? Her trainer thought she was ready for her “match” I do not. Frankly, I don’t think Drita has actually had more than the three or four lessons we saw on the show. I can’t see Drita getting in her car and driving over the Verrazano Bridge a few times a week for lessons or for practice, but that’s just lazy me talking. 

Later in the show, she goes to Evolution for a sparring session with Andrew. She brags again how she has won most of her fights (though she left out the cheeseburgers and standing up against bullies this time, very disappointing). Then she says the sparring is putting her in “fighter mode,” and she is “dying to get into the ring,” and she “feels like ROCKY!” (I suddenly hear music playing as I type). And low and behold, Drita herself comes to the same conclusion I wrote about in another blog. Remember that study that showed boxing actually increases aggression not decreases it! Evolution explained to me that the discipline of boxing is what reduces aggression, however Drita said flat out she can’t be bothered with the “rules of boxing.” She ends her scene saying, boxing is supposed to control her temper, but “it’s getting her heated.” So, guess what, I was right about Drita and boxing and I love being right! Hold the applause, I haven’t gotten to Carla yet.

Last and certainly not least, is my little Carla. Carla has always been my least favorite mob wife. I did a blog on that months ago and maybe I should update it? Anyway, where to begin? Carla is in two major scenes concerning Renee. No, she never did go see Renee, she just talked about her behind her back. To be fair, I am not going to put words in Carla’s mouth or state what she may have implied, I am just going to deal with what she did and di-ent say.

First Carla meets with Karen to discuss Renee’s situation. I ask myself why? Why is Carla sitting there with Karen and not at Renee’s house, her friend of 27 years, whose whole world has come crashing down around her? Carla makes some stupid statements. Like what you ask? Well, she says that Junior was never really good for Renee so maybe this whole thing (Junior’s turning informant, getting her dad arrested, and disappearing) is what’s best for Renee. Really Carla? Think again. Carla casually mentions to Karen that a “few people” have been asking “what’s up with Junior?” Who would those few people be and why would they be talking, and why would it be relevant now unless he was said to be doing something shady? Carla doesn’t say. I almost got the impression that Carla knew something was up based on what she heard from the rumor mill.  We know how Carla loves gossip (remember she wanted to get all the “dirt” on Renee’s party so she could compare stories?). Not much gets by Carla. Then Carla says something, innocently or not, that could be misconstrued, because she fails to elaborate. She says, she thinks “Renee knew something was coming.” Carla di-ent say what. Now, I will not leap to the conclusion that she meant Renee knew Junior was wearing a wire and taping her father, but it sounds like she was trying to imply something without saying it out right. Karen heard some kind of “insinuation” and we don’t know what was edited it out. Enough said.

Well, Carla isn’t done talking. She meets Drita and Bigg Ang at the spa to get their nails done. Carla is pissed at this point. Apparently, word got back to her that Renee is mad. Renee got the idea that Carla said or implied that she knew Junior was wearing a wire and maybe even taping her dad. Carla still hasn’t talked to Renee since all this happened. I think I would wonder a little about Carla too. She’s not too busy to talk about Renee behind her back, but hasn’t made the time to pay her a visit? Carla goes on a hurtful tirade about her dear friend Renee, who had her world ripped out from under her. She says Renee is totally wrong, she is bi-polar, she is paranoid, she has a big mouth and talks about everyone, she is not a true friend, she is a puppet and then Carla adds she is done being nice. If that’s being nice I’d hate to see her being mean! Carla has a history of NOT being there for Renee. I’m not surprised she wasn’t there now. But, she could have at least keep her mouth shut about what is going on. The way she talked to Karen about Renee, she probably talked to at least 50 other people. Who needs a friend like that? Can’t wait for next week when Renee confronts her about all of this and I hope she gives her a good piece of her mind (and mine)!

One touching scene I have to mention is when Joey asks Joe to come over Christmas Eve and stay over till Christmas morning to open presents together. I hope they had a very Merry Christmas and that it made up, in part, for the years they all missed together. Joey and Carmen deserve to have some wonderful Christmas memories with their dad.

So what did you think? What did I miss? I was seeing red and it colored my view of the television screen! Chime in any time, I’d love to hear what you have to say!

Chiara- you did not miss anything! I could not wait for your 2 cents. I think you were spot on. I posted last night that Carla is pot meeting kettle! Who is she to call someone a puppet? She is the biggest one on the show! Also, last night I felt Karen did nothing wrong, and nothing that Carla has not done 100 times to Drita. She starts or instigates a lot of the gossip drama on the show! Carla took to the tweeting last night to call Karen a troublemaker, and I think she also made a nasty comment about Nikkey( she really has some balls now).Frankly, I think Carla tries the meek and mild act, and fails because she does EXACTLY what she talks about everyone else doing, but its ok for her? Now for Drita- don't know what to think? Now that she can actually prove her toughness, she bails? I hear her excuses, and could agree with why if it did not seem like she was being a flip flopper about it. On the streets, she has no head gear, no rules to protect anyone... so when u have this chance u turn it down? Hmmm.. maybe not as tough with that knocking out after all? I do like how she supported Renee! I know Ang does not like drama, however watching her and Drita sit there while she kicked Renee while she was done bothered me- because, if the shoes were on the other feet ( Karen, Ramona) the fighting and gossip and bashing would be endless! Missed Ramona this week!

Chiara Soprano said...

Anon, this is why I love comments, because you just brought out a few points I failed to make. Why did Drita bail on the "match" when she had a chance to prove how well she fights? Well it's not surprising. She can't be bothered to breathe for anger management and she can't follow all the rules of boxing, she just wants to street fight or barroom brawl!

Mishluch said...

Love your blogs!!! I think to add in to this one though, a mention of Aj should be said. What a great, strong young man he is. The scene of him and Renee at dinner was touching and heartfelt. The look on Renee's face just says how much she loves that boy and that he is definitely her world.

vai said...

I loved your two cents, so on point. Carla called Renee puppet but the only puppet on the show is her. Whatever she says about others reflected her. I wished she says that to Renee's face we all know Renee would slapped her face hands down. Drita, I tweeted why every episode drita braggs about her fist? But just when I thought she got a chance to prove what she braggs about putting people in the hospital ambulance coming then she bails, wtf. I understand her excuse but I think she got cold feet lol. All that training you didn't think about your kids but when your set to go in the ring for a real match you suddenly thought of your kids lmao. Not so tough after all hah, street fights people are there to hold you back when you get your ass beat but in the ring nobody's there to prevent you from getting a nose bleed n another black eye lol. Excuses excuses excuses. And for her to say she never backs down or walk away from a fight awh lied. You walked away when Karen gave you a black eye and who knows how many other fights you walked away when you got your ass beat. Anyway, I missed Ramona this week and I can't wait for next week episode.

vai said...

I forgot to mention Karen, she's one of a kind. Everything I looked for in a friend, hard to find a real friend like Karen n Ramona. Big Ang being big ang. Carla tweeted her ex hubby will never becomes a rat. Carla darling never say NEVER. And AJ, love him. He's a good n a strong kid.

JW said...

Twitter would suggest that no matter what we think about Carla's actions, she and Renee are cool. I'm sure that seeing these scenes play out may have gotten her a little heated but whatever got back to Renee when this initially happened was obviously not enough for her to cut Carla off as a friend. I say all that to say, I'm not holding my breath that this is going to change their friendship.

So I'm going to be the cynic and say what I thought when I saw Drita visit Renee. I was glad she went over and did the right thing. However, I couldn't help but think that Drita may remember Season 1 when Karen responded in a very similar manner when she (Karen) and Renee were on the outs. That moment when Karen (and only Karen) showed up for Renee was a game changer. From that moment on, Renee never questioned their relationship. Can't help but wonder if Drita took this into consideration when she headed over to Renee's house.

I missed Ramona too. I hope we get more of her in next week's episode.

I really, really hope that they get the right person to host the reunion. I like Carrie Keegan but I don't think she's a good fit. I will keep my fingers crossed that they go with Wendy Williams again. They need someone who will not be afraid to be critical and to really push them on some of the issues from this season.

I don't think Karen and Drita will ever be the same but I think there is a meaningful conversation that needs to be had. Hitting someone is the point of no return but I think these two women could be in the same room without the same mayhem that broke out at Renee's party. If for no other reason, they ought to be able to do it for Renee.

I was proud of Drita for realizing that boxing was not the best outlet. She also admitted that she has a fight or flight response to stress and confrontation. (emphasis on the *fight*) I need a reunion host who can use that clip and Renee's party as a teachable moment. I know it's reality television but can't we still actually learn something from time to time?

If the reunion is simply a bunch of clips we've all seen with no substantive dialogue, I'll be pissed.

Deana3452 said...

A.J. is a young man who seems to have a good head on his shoulders, but does anyone else think he's very abrasive answering his mother's questions? I thought he was almost being disrespectful, but maybe he's just embarassed being asked those types of questions on camera.

Chiara Soprano said...

Hey JW good to see you and your comments. I agree with everything you've said. Wendy Williams was a great reunion host, I don't know anyone who is crazy about Carrie. I don't think The Sit Down is doing well either. They should have taken more time planning the format of it. I like your idea of the "teachable" moment, but a person can't be defensive and has to be open to learning something. Not sure that is the case here.

Deana, AJ has been through a lot over the past year and I'm sure it's affected his behavior somewhat. In spite of that, he acts like any other normal kid his age, not any worse. Most teenagers are short of patience when it comes to parents, that's been my experience.

Deana3452 said...

Chiara-when you put it that way about being a teenager, I take it back...he's a lot better than most I've seen then. LOL!

Anonymous said...

I wanted to add from my initial comment that in re to Carla- I meant to say if I didn't already, that she has no reason to get so nasty about Karen. She is loyal to those loyal to her! Just as Carla is loyal to Drita and Karen and Ramona have accepted that. As for Aj, I feel so bad for him! At first I felt the same as another commentor about disrespect, but thank God, after everything this kid has gone through he seems like he is turning out quite well! My own teenage son has a tendency to be snotty toned in the voice, but when I see what kids today are out doing so young I am soooo thankful that all I have to deal with is snotty voice once in a while ! God bless you AJ :) For the reunion, maybe we should stick Nancy Grace on them, lol. That would be hysterical!!

Anonymous said...

Ya know, even though Jr didn't treat Renee right, I think he did love her. She and her father were estranged, he and Jr were close all along weren't they? Maybe instead of trying to get close to her father he moved in knowing it was his last chance to be with his family knowing what he was going to do. Maybe.

Chiara Soprano said...

Anon, actions speak louder than words and he wasn't acting very "loving" knowing that soon he would be shattering Renee's world. It seemed to me that he was trying to keep his distance with her, getting just close enough to do what the Feds needed him to do so he could fulfill his end of the deal. There is no excuse or justification for what he did, as far as I am concerned.

Chiara Soprano said...

To the Anon recommending Nancy Grace LOL that is a riot, but I'll bet the Mob Wives would not be able to get a word in edge wise! I would stick with Wendy, but give her some harder hitting questions and a longer reunion show, one hour is too short.

Anonymous said...

I am not sure why, but good old Nancy popped in my head, lol ! I agree with you that Wendy maybe should do harder questions that really get right to the point! I know Nancy will not take any crap and she has prosecutorial background :) and it would just be a hoot watching her ask questions to this group!

Deana3452 said...

I always felt bad for Renee in all the episodes even before the news broke...because it seemed liked Junior was just tolerating her. He would roll his eyes and act like he wanted to be anywhere but there. It was sad because you could see how much she loved him....it's a shame all the way around.

Anonymous said...

I'm not trying to excuse him, Chiara. I just think it meant a lot to Renee to know that he did love her. He was a horrible husband even before he ratted. That thing he said about her weight is abusive, flat-out. I just don't think he necessarily needed to use her to get close to her father. Yeah he was a pig, and yeah he treated her like dirt, but she shouldn't be thinking he never cared at all. The way he was treating her, he may have been holding her off because he felt so guilty, and being a coward he took his guilt out on her and made her feel even worse.

CeeCee said...

There is a time and place 4 everything, Carla made a bad decision by saying everything she felt in front of a camera that was filming 4 thousands of people 2 see...

Even though what Carla said was cold and mean i am sure that other people feel the exact same way Carla feels, but that is still no excuse.
There is a time that u have 2 give respect 2 the other person,
no matter what ur really feeling, and the respectful thing 2 do was 2 go over Renee's house, give ur sympathies and condolences,
Hug her, hug A.J. and tell them ur sorry that this ever happened.
(End of Story).

I mean even if u don't feel 4 Renee...Come On U Have 2 Feel bad 4 A.J.! He is just stuck in the middle, i can say without a doubt A.J. did not want any of this...
meaning...
The Show itself..
The FEDS..
This whole business with his dad...
A.J. did not want any of this 2 happen.
So...show A.J. some respect.

I think everybody dead rolled over in their graves twice, when Carla said something like "I think what happen is for the Best!"

Mob Mistress said...

No one throw food at me:

Maybe she meant Junior being out of Renee's life so she can move on.

I agree the time & delivery was HORRIFIC. Bigg Ang expressions said it all!

CeeCee said...

LOL!!! Mob Mistress no one is going 2 throw food at u, because ur right, thats probably what she meant.
But the way it came out...was like ..Ouch!, and then she kept going! Lmao!!!
I wasnt going 2 say anything, but now that u brought it up...
Big Ang face had the look like she was thinking..(In Big Ang's Voice)...
"Oh Lord i wish i could just die 4 a little while, so i could be away from this mess! Why Me? Why Now? What did i ever do 2 deserve this DRAMA!!!"
That part was the funniest part of the thing!Lmao!!;-)

Tedesca said...

I think maybe Carlas remark about "Renee seeing it coming" shouldn´t been taken literally. I don´t know how Renee´s and Junior´s relation really was - of cause not, how could I - but from what was shown on TV at least Renee was not very happy. Of course it´s possible Jen took mostly scenes in which Junior gave Renee strange looks or behaved cold and notnice, just to give the viewers who did not read all these articles about him ratting the impression smthng was coming up. But: Most women know it´s over before it´s actually over. Could it not be that Carla meant exactly that? (I hope my English is understandable, I am very unsecure when it comes to writing in a foreign language)

Monique said...

This is just a theory I came up with when it comes to Carla...

She knows she was adding ZERO contribution to the show, the fact that Joe is back is going to add even more to the snoozefest (glad he is out of jail, but it's the truth), her level of drama was reduced to being Drita's minion.

Carla ponders **if I don't get interesting- I'm getting the boot from this show- I know it**

So, what does Carla do...

Ride on the devastation that is going on in Renee's life which is by far the most interesting storyline of ANY reality show EVER and starts talking smack about it as much as she can. She knew she would get more airtime, cause drama and make herself (some what) relevant again.

That's just what I think is going on through her head because it is absolutely beyond me how anyone could say the things she said about a friend when she is going through such a difficult time. Carla is showing her true colors as the episodes air. Desperate and Pathetic. Period.

Chiara Soprano said...

Monique!!! Love your theory and it makes perfect sense. The only thing is I don't give Carla credit for being that smart and putting that much thought into it. I think she just talks without thinking and creates drama for herself LOL!

Monique said...

LOL Chiara... I agree it takes about a minute of thinking to devise my plan.. that's about 59 seconds more than Carla is capable of!! LOL!!!!

Axxia said...

I just watched this episode and you know what? I honestly believe Carla is not a puppet. She chooses what she does and is not influenced by Drita or anyone else.

I also think she is just using them all to be on the show and get the money. She is not anyones friend, not even Drita. If she was truly loyal to Drita she would support her when Karen & Ramona gang up on her. Instead she just weakly says she doesn't want to get into it because she doesn't want drama. Nothing to do with loyalty to Drita.

She is not loyal to any of them. She does not care for anyone. She should have gone to talk to Renee. She is one selfish, stuck up B*tch.

...and I really do believe she was insinuating that Renee knew that Junior was doing it. She is smart and chose her words carefully so that she could act all innocent. She wanted to smear Renee and she wanted people to think that Renee was in on it.

I never thought I would dislike anyone as much as I do Karen and Ramona. Carla proved me wrong. She is disgusting. At least Karen and Ramona are 'in your face' and own what they say and do. Carla is a scheming snake in the grass.

Sorry for the long rant...but I had to get that out. Carla really hit a nerve for me this week.
