Mob Wives: Recap “Renee’s Had Enough,” Ep 411


It’s not just Renee who has had enough, I think we all have…about lots of things…things we do not want to hear about any more! Here goes, and excuse me if I'm not all fired up this week...

Drita’s house. Renee arrives for THE sit down. Drita cooks the dinner and appoints herself “mediator.” Alicia, Natalie and Ang are already sitting and waiting at the table. Natalie is annoyed the second she sees Renee’s face, and Alicia has an attitude about Renee. Nobody is talking. Renee tells Alicia to eat something, but Alicia is a basket-case over her sentencing. And, I feel like we are all serving a sentence every time we have to hear her whine…you did the crime, now do the time (if there is any)! Alicia speaks for both herself and Natalie. Alicia accuses Renee of spreading rumors about her that are going to jeopardize her case. Renee says she would never do such a thing. There’s nothing like going on a reality show to keep your life private, right Alicia? They rehash the sentencing (again, oy vey) and Alicia suddenly attributes their issues to a “miscommunication.” Alicia says she doesn’t know who leaked the information about her, but she NOW realizes it’s no one at the table. Gee, just like that? Renee says this all started with her friend, Carla, coming up. Drita, the voice of reason and newly self-appointed mediator, says Carla is Renee’s friend for life and Renee’s loyalty lies with her. On the other hand, Renee has known Eddie, as a friend, for 30 years, so her loyalty lies with him. Natalie chimes in. She defended Alicia because she is her friend, and Renee says she understands her sticking up for Alicia. Alicia wants Renee to come to her directly when she hears anyone say something. Alicia is trying to keep her friendship with Renee and move past these issues since Renee has been Eddie’s friend for 30 years. Now all the air is cleared and they all got to eat! They even got to dessert. Drita is proud of herself. What? Just like that all the issues are resolved in a kumbaya moment? Is this for real? Of course not. Something doesn’t have the ring of truth to it. What the hell changed to get everyone so warm and fuzzy and agreeable, especially between Renee and Natalie? Way too much happened to just kiss and makeup. Next!

Can't we all just get along? I want PEACE!


Drita is at her second store location, the grand opening is soon. She is pissed because the work isn’t moving as fast as it should. Drita lost her money in Vegas and she needs to make more money. She hates the red color paint they show her, they got the wrong color. Drita is building an empire for her daughters to pay for college. Drita loves her Lady Boss sign! She still has a lot to do before the Grand Opening. Well at least the opening of the store is real, but I’m not that interested in it.

Natalie and London are wandering around looking at apartments. Looks like they are in Brooklyn, but who really cares? The building has no elevators and they keep climbing stairs up to the nosebleed floor. How the high up is this apartment already? Natalie immediately notices there is no closet space in the apartment. Where in the world will she put all that skimpy lingerie? The bedroom for her son is too small, there is no washer or dryer, and no freakin’ elevator. The Real Estate agent says for all those things she would have to pay $2,000 a month more. London doesn’t want to pay that much. Either he is cheap or has a low income. She says she has a mortgage free house in SOUTH Philly and she doesn’t really want to move into a small ass apartment. She says they need a three bedroom apartment. He doesn’t get it, two bedrooms are enough. She says what if they have a baby. He says he isn’t ready for a baby. He doesn’t want a more expensive apartment. He wants to party. She says they have a nine year old, they can’t party. She leaves. She wants a husband and a family and doesn’t want to be the one making all the sacrifices. Now this was a waste of time filler scene that no one cared about. However, for the first time I do agree with Natalie, she needs to stay in her mortgage free house in SOUTH Philly.

The naive Goddess has spoken, but who is listening?

At the Goddess’ house, Alicia says she is relieved she patched things up with Renee (what a load off her mind, right?) and can focus on her sentencing. The bank is closing all her bank accounts…all nine of them. Gee, I wonder why? Maybe they think there could be some embezzled pension money chilling in there? Or maybe they are afraid she will hide the money so she doesn’t have to pay restitution? Anyway, she keeps claiming it’s her money, but who is going to believe her?  And, she is still freaking crying over Eddie’s betrayal, but she keeps saying she isn’t with him any more, hasn’t been with him for a long time. I even heard she served him with divorce papers. The kids don’t know her sentencing is only a week away. She has to break it to them. She is scared and she would rather not think about it. She wants to be strong for her boys. If she ends up in jail it will be devastating because her boys won’t have their father or mother. Boo hoo, more crying. All she ever wanted was her family and now everything has fallen apart because she was naïve (insert extreme eye roll <@@> here). Now she has to struggle and she didn’t sign up for this, boo hoo, boo hoo. I think I have exhausted all I can say about Alicia and her situation. This poor horse has been beaten to death.

Lady Boss Grand Opening. Drita is excited because it has all come together. Alicia arrives at the store with a gift basket and she loves it. She says it’s very chic. Renee loves it. Ang loves it. It’s all fancy and her kind of style, says Ang. Drita went from giving black eyes to blue eyes, says Renee. Renee asks Alicia about court. Alicia says she is just waiting. London and Natalie show up. They both look like they are dressed from “The 70’s Show.” I’ll have to ask Fashionista to look into this retro look. London says Natalie will not respect the budget he has in his mind, so they will live in separate states. Yes! Natalie wants  more of a commitment and Alicia speaks to London about it. She doesn’t want London to hurt her. Drita is glad there is no tension or awkwardness between the girls today. They toast to the store. Another filler scene. You know what? I am getting the impression that Drita made the best deal this season. Not only did she make a pile of money from being on the show, she got a load of free advertisement for her new store.

Renee’s house. Alicia calls, she just got home from Christmas shopping with the boys. Renee tells her she is pissed with Natalie over her disrespectful tweets. Renee says she hasn’t said or done anything to her since they met at Drita’s. Renee tells her she tweeted she doesn’t condone women who sleep with married men and Natalie tweets that Renee wasn’t Eddie‘s friend and called her a lying dirty ho. Forgive me if I got this wrong, but I didn’t find the actual tweets. Renee feels she was attacked by Natalie on Twitter. Alicia wants Renee to tell all this to Natalie, not her. Renee thought they were past all the BS and now Natalie disrespects her on Twitter. Renee’s had enough! I have had enough too!

Oh Lord, Ang and Neil are at the fertility clinic. Neil’s sperm + an egg donor + a surrogate = baby. The whole thing sounds and looks like a big joke. Neil actually already looks pregnant with that beer belly he is carrying around. Ang is making a comedy out of the whole thing. If they are going to attempt to use this as a storyline, at least make it a little believable. It’s totally bogus and I don’t find it funny.

Alicia’s house. She is with the boys, writing letters to Eddie. The phone rings and it’s Eddie, surprise surprise…yawn. The boys pass the phone around very fast and then Alicia gets on. We never hear Eddie’s voice, like we did with Lee. Alicia says Eddie got the best case scenario for his sentencing. She seems to be arguing with “Eddie,” but we can’t hear his end of the conversation, so who really knows? I. for one, think she was talking to the producer and role playing. One of the boys asks her what did dad do. She says he made some mistakes and had to go away. She tells them she got involved in his mistakes and might have to go away too. She asks them to write her letters if she goes away. She is preparing her children for the possibility they might have nether parent for a while. No offense to the children, or maybe they edited it to look that way, but they didn’t have much of a reaction to the news. No one, except maybe Alicia, seems broken up about the possibility of her going to jail…makes me think she has a plea deal that doesn’t involve doing time and she has been pulling the wool over our eyes all season long. Hmmmm.

Ok, what's up with this attire? A fashion statement?

Renee rents out a beautiful suite in New York City for a pajama “Ho Ho Ho” party. Everyone loves it. Renee is in a great mood…as long as one person doesn’t come…Natalie. Alicia tells the girls that Renee is upset with Natalie over something she tweeted which may have been below the belt. They go ask Renee what happened. Renee explains what happened on Twitter. Natalie says “You were never his friend you lying dirty Ho.” Drita is pissed because they have already made peace. Ang says the peace was too good to be true and is disappointed in Natalie for breaking the truce. Renee says Natalie is out of control, out of line, and needs to go back to Philadelphia. I think @dondig should do me a favor and drive her there right now. Alicia goes upstairs to see what the problem is with Renee. Alicia agrees Natalie was out of line, but she can’t control her. Renee feels people are looking at her sideways because of  what Natalie said. Drita just wants PEACE, she is tired of them all bickering like animals. Renee’s had enough! I have to laugh. Drita, the fighter, wants peace. Ang and Drita are suddenly sticking up for Renee. Even Alicia is siding with Renee before even talking to Natalie! Is anyone as confused as I am right now? What did Drita put in her brownies at dinner?

So Mob Wives is ending their season with a fight about tweets? That’s all they could come up with? If so, please pass me some of Drita’s brownies for me and my entourage…thanks.

Long time reader..first time commenting. I am truly disappointed with this season. They are the same story lines and I don't care where these women are from...take some enunciation classes..the word "dat" drives me bonkers! And the pajamas on these women...Drita looked like a dominatrix and Alicia couldn't close her top. Who wears these things to bed?

you get your pre sentencing report at least 1 month before your sentencing so when Alicia said she gets sentenced in one week and does not know what she is going to get she is lying.This show is not real anymore they are arguing about the same argument for 4 episodes now.The storyline with drita and her husband is beyond stupid.Karen had a good storyline the issues with dave and trying to get her dad out and Ramona and her boyfriend getting sentenced.I don't even care now if I miss a episode.

Can't believe next week is the season finale and I'm still waiting for the season to get started with something that interests me. I hope they ditch these Philly chicks next year and bring back Karen and the gang.

First, I enjoy reading your blogs more than watching the show anymore! This season has been disappointment ! Drita's rap episode was hilarious and the consistent whining from Alicia is over the top! She did wrong so she needs to stop the poor me act! If the two philly girls aren't dropped then I can't put myself thru another season! Bring back Karen and Ramona!!!

At Dritas house I agreed with what Drita said 100% about Renee's friendship triangle situation all along it just needed to be said like that and then everything clicked into place I guess.....although I thought Alicia looked surprised at Dritas comment and how her new bestie didn't defend her again but instead Renee.
Natalie aside from growing up in a funeral home has probably had a very easy financial upbringing, the Carto funeral home and where she resides is all in the same building hence the mortgage free comment. Plus all the family support with her son which is why I guess we never see him and she gets to these hotel rooms and parties so much. But for someone wanting a family home she sure likes to party........on the flip side I do get why she is mad at London although why can't she dig into her pockets for the help with rent?
Alicia I totally agree I'm sick of her whinging if you look at episode 1 again she says the same things in every episode and it's annoying and I'm beginning to think they just hit rewind and play with her interviews....
Unfortunately they have left it open to a season 5 with Alicia.....so I don't think they are about to be written out of the script with the preview of the finale.
Does anyone else think Alicia talks like shit to her kids half the time? It's her tone she is really patronising and bossy.
The pajama party was the worst scene ever...... drita in pigtails and dominatrix, Alicia with a flannel shirt and bra hanging out.......really?
Unfortunately we know the outcome for next week in that Alicia sentencing is postponed...
Is it sad that I watch the old seasons more than the new one?
Hopefully they have looked at the feedback for this season and adjust next season accordingly to make it a hit again and not just another season rolling off the successful earlier seasons...

Kadii thanks for commenting. I agree with everything but I don't see Natalie coming back at all. As for Alicia, we can only hope not. Without her Eddie (who she is apparently divorcing) and her sentencing due to be settled...what the hell would she talk about? She doesn't want to mention her new Boo and you can't make a storyline out of a boutique that was probably financed with pension money. So I hope she stays in Philly!

I 100% agree with everything you wrote! This whole season seems to be full of B.S, fillers and do-overs for the camera. At the end of each show when the start to play previews for the next episode I'm like wait...it's over? I am hanging by a thread here. I keep waiting for the episode that is going to pull my interest back in. Hasn't happened and the season is almost over. BTW I love the comment about Neil's beer belly. thought the same thing when I saw him walking through the hall. What a joke that whole scene was! I wish they would bring back Karen and Ramona. Then we would be seeing some REAL drama!

Great blog, I love it! Alicia and Natalie need to go back to what ever gutter they crawled out of and fast! Ugh what a couple of fools! Natalie makes me ill and Alicia is a sympathy hound and a pretentious bitch! They have no clue what loyalty is and I find myself wondering if Drita and ang have forgotten what loyalty means as well. Wth are they doing? It seems they're using the hate triangle of horror as a source if entertainment for themselves. They at no time showed any loyalty towards Renee who I happen to like a lot. Although I must say dritas transformation is spectacular! I'm actually fining myself rooting for her to succeed. Now if she could just fix the loyalty issue....
