Sometimes, I don’t know which is better, Mob Wives on VH1 or Mob Wives on Twitter (UNEDITED). I have to say that Twitter gives the actual show a run for it’s money lately as the ladies are totally unfiltered and can hit below the belt without getting any of their hair pulled out. Of course, what happens on the show overflows onto social media and NOW what happens in social media continues to play itself out on the show. From time to time, we try to blog about social network wars so those fans who aren’t on Twitter can see what goes on. (go to this link for the Original Twitter War Blog) The nasty exchanges are real and pretty much show who hates who and why. Last episode Karen ends by saying, “Bring me your friend, Gnatalie!" Now for the recap . . .
At Drita’s Lady Boss store, Drita is trying to expand her business by doing a calendar shoot to publicize her cosmetics line. She wants to showcase all her products. She plans to do an “Old Hollywood Meets the Mob“ theme. Karen drops in and thinks it‘s a great idea. Drita tells her she wants to make money with her calendar and invest it in her business. Karen and Drita are having fun chatting. Drita says, "Remember when we played poker with your grandma?" Karen laughs and says, "Yeah and she robbed us." Karen tells her she wants to have a get together with a poker theme party and invite Rena, Natalie D. Renee and Drita. Drita is all for it and thinks it’s a good idea, it gives them a chance to check out Natalie D.
Big Ang meets up with Gnatalie. They have their dogs at the park. I don’t know how they accomplish this since Astoria, Queens and Staten Island are pretty far apart, but oh well. Ang is happy to see Gnat and wants to speak to her one on one. She tells Gnat about the sit down on the yacht with Renee, and that they are in an okay place right now. Then she tells her what Karen said about Gnat tweeting about Karen’s daughter, parenting and calling her a “dead-beat” mother. Gnat tells her side. She says Karen hacked into her mother’s facebook page and stole a picture of Gnat as a kid saying she was ugly and must have been bullied. Ang tells her that Karen wants Gnat brought to her. Gnat says she wants Karen brought to her. Ang keeps saying family is off limits , but, as usual, Gnat doesn’t hear a word.
Ang and Neil pull up to the new “old” house. She is disgusted that the house that needs a ton of renovation. She and Neil are moving in. Ang can’t stand the unfinished work and says her husband is “a waste, a procrastinating, lazy bastard.” She wants her son AJ and his family moving in with them so he can get back on his feet. This is a new beginning for him and she wants to help. Ang is going back to her sister’s house till the work is done. Ang had a beautiful house, I don’t know why she would want to leave it for a fixer-upper?
Astoria, Queens. Gnat and London are having a relaxing day. I guess people stopped dying in SOUTH Philly for now, and DEATH takes a holiday when Gnat isn‘t there? She says she wants to be settled for her son. She doesn’t like the schools in New York City and she has no money for private school. She tells him about her meeting with Ang and what happened with Twitter. Gnat denies talking about Karen’s daughter. She says Karen started with her. STOP! Once again the funeral home princess has it wrong. Karen did not start anything with her. Gnat relentlessly tweeted Karen and her father are rats, just like she does on the show. Then she posted pictures of Miss Piggy labeling them “Karen.” When that wasn’t enough to provoke Karen, she posted Karen’s mug shot. All these posts were where Karen’s daughter could see it and be hurt by it. Finally, Karen had enough and posted a picture Natalie D gave her, of Gnatalie in grade school from her yearbook, to give her a dose of her own medicine. That’s when Gnat ended up posting the last straw, “the dead-beat” mom tweet! Gnat leaves out a few details in her side of the story. Let’s continue. She tells London Ang and Drita want her to meet with Karen. London thinks it’s a great idea for her to meet with Karen. She says if Renee apologized (WAIT . . . If Renee apologized? WTH? For what?) she would accept her apology. Ha, it will be a very cold day in hell for that to happen. Gnat decides she will go to the sit down out of respect for Drita and Ang. London asks her to please "tone down." It's not happening London.
Karen’s House! Party time. Lots of girls there to play poker. Drita is excited. Ang and Renee hug, they are back on good terms. In comes Natalie D. looking great. Let the card playing begin! Dealing, chips, drinks. Ang wins the first pot. Ang says she loves Natalie D to death because she is winning all her money. Drita tells them about her Lady Boss Calendar. Ang’s birthday is June so she is going to be Miss June. Renee starts talking about Ratalie and social media. Ang tells them what Gnat said about Karen hacking her mother’s account and stealing her family picture.
Renee says that’s not true! Natalie D says she gave Karen the picture. Renee cannot believe Ang actually might believe Gnat's ridiculous story about Karen hacking anyone‘s account. They all laugh about it. Drita says that's stupid and wants to know if you can do time for being a mother hacker. Karen tells them how Karina saw the tweets and Karina had to tweet Gnat back and tell her to leave her and her mother’s relationship out of her tweets. Karen is very upset her daughter had to be dragged into this situation. Renee and Karen are going to the sit down with Gnat. Renee has Karen’s back. Ang says Gant says she is sending a car for Karen. Renee explodes. I don’t know who is more upset over Gnat, Karen or Renee? Renee is very protective of Karen.
Lady Boss calendar shoot. There are sexy models dressed in old Hollywood style clothes and hair. Ang shows up. Drita is going to dress Ang for the shoot. She gives Ang a toy gun and a toy machine gun. The shoot was a success. Ang tells Drita Gnat has a big issue on her hands. Ang and Drita thinks she talks too much and creates too much drama. Neither one of them like that. Drita says she is going to sit back and let them kill each other while she eats popcorn!
The Sit Down! Before the meeting starts, Karen is upset, it’s been a long time coming. Gnat says Karen is a wanna be gangster. Renee is really heated over Gnat. Karen and Renee are going to handle it head on. Drita hates computer fights. She believes in meeting face to face and taking care of your business.
Here are the main tweets in question:
Gnat arrives and she says she is doing this for Drita and Ang. She kisses Drita and Ang and sits down, half naked with her boobs half out. Renee says she looks like a hooker from 42nd Street. Nothing new about that. Ang fills her in about the social media issues. Karen confronts her, “Who the f*ck are you to call me a dead-beat mother.” Gnat accuses Karen of tweeting insults and taking pictures off her mother’s page. Renee says Natalie D gave her the picture from Gnat‘s yearbook. Karen says she came at her first. Karen is telling the truth. I follow social media very closely. Gnat denies it and insists that Karen started it. Karen says she will never admit what she did. Ang tells Gnat no more social media if they are to move on. Drita tells her she hits too far below the belt.
Karen says, “I’m a dead-beat mom?” Karen says you don’t get it, you did something where my daughter f*ckin sees it. Renee steps in and says why can’t you admit when you’re wrong. Renee handled it well and said what needed to be said. Gnat doesn’t acknowledge she did anything wrong. Renee just wants to choke the life out of her. Renee says she is playing a game. Gnat says she defends herself. Renee says you are out of control, you’re disgraceful and you don’t stop. Gnat still won’t acknowledge she is wrong. Karen says she will not acknowledge anything, nothing is penetrating her head. This is a waste of time. All Karen hears is Gnat disrespecting her father, disrespecting her and her daughter. Karen has had enough. Gnat says, "If yous can't handle it, come at me!"
Is the fight over? Stay tuned for next week’s episode!
