Renee’s House. Karen stops by with the newspaper. Renee is reading about Junior’s list of the people he ratted on. It just got longer. Renee is sick Junior is putting more people in jail, including Ang’s cousin. Renee is concerned for the families. She feels AJ has to walk around with shame because of what his father did and she is upset that they have to pay for Junior’s sins. AJ is her first priority. Renee is concerned people will call Junior a “rat” and it will hurt AJ. Loyalty is not bringing up the person who ruined her life.
Big Ang and Drita go to Gnatalie’s apartment to confront her about being a “cop caller.” I don’t know why they needed to do this because Karen told them several times she tried to call the cops on her. Karen doesn’t lie, especially about things like that. Drita insists she doesn’t want to associate with a rat and yet she keeps hanging out with Gnat. Go figure. Gnat wants to give them a tour of the apartment, but Ang says that is the last thing she needs; she just wants to know the truth. Ang immediately brings up Drita’s makeup session in Philly and tells Gnat that a model told Drita something about her. Drita ajumps in and says the model told her Gnatalie is a rat and to be careful who you hang out with. Ang is totally against rats, yet there is she is still talking to Gnat. Drita says they have been sticking up for her all along and she can’t defend rats. Drita says the model told her Gnat had a fight with her boyfriend and called his PO (parole officer). Gnat says yes, she did call the cops, but the fight got violent and she had to call the cops to protect herself.
Gnat says it is none of the model’s business. Gnat tells them it’s something personal and she never brought it up. Ang says it’s a different story if she called the cops to protect herself. Drita agrees that it’s the only excuse where it’s ok to call the cops. But what about her saying she would call the cops on Karen? That doesn’t count? Now Gnat wants to find out who is talking about her. Drita is very angry and is tired of being in the middle and going back and forth. Gnat is going to find the b*tch who is talking about her. She is going to do her own investigation on this b*tch.
Karen is going to talk to Storm at dinner. She is waiting to see if he says the right things, if not, she is walking away forever. She misses him. He looks nervous, but he screwed up and he has to fix it. He admits he acted like a jerk and handled everything wrong. He is 100% sorry and she doesn’t ever have to worry about it happening again. She accepts his apology. Karen says trust is important in a relationship. She feels they have too much invested in their relationship to throw it away. He says he gets it. He owns his mistake. She doesn‘t condone cheating and won‘t tolerate it. “If he ever disrespects me again I will go Lorena Bobbitt on his ass.” I love Lorena Bobbitt! I’d be very, very careful if I was Storm.
Natalie Didonato (related to Frankie Flowers) is at the gym. Her boyfriend, Ronnie, comes in. They have been together, off and on, for four years. But they always have each other’s back. He tells her that girl, Gnatalie, called him and asked him if he could come to New York and spackle some stuff for her. Natalie tells him Gnat is known as a scumbag whore in Philly. He tells her Gnat told him that Natalie D is trying to ruin her life by saying she is a rat and that she put her ex in jail. He says it’s true, he had the same parole officer. Gnat wants him to give her dirt on Natalie D. He thinks she is nuts to ask him that. Natalie says she is sending Gnat a 20 pound provolone for Christmas, she is a bonafide rat. Natalie isn’t about to let Gnat dig up dirt on her. “You’re not delicious, you’re delusional.”
Renee can’t sleep. Junior is in the news again. On top of that Ang went to see Gnat about “her side” of the “parole officer” story. So Renee is seeing a doctor about her stress. She can’t take pills, so she needs alternative healthy options. He hooks her up to a 30 minute, nutritional therapy IV and she tries to relax. Five or ten minutes later she gets a text that her son was hurt in a car accident. Renee goes crazy and makes them pull out the IV. No answer on AJ’s phone. She hears that AJ can’t walk and he is in a lot of pain. Renee drives to the park and runs to find her son. AJ is on a stretcher. The ambulance is pulling away.
Drita is shopping for dinner after work and calls Lee to see what he wants. He literally tells her to get everything. Does anyone know what the hell Lee does all day? As she waits for her order, Antoine calls. He tells her the photos from the magazine photo shoot are amazing and he invites her for the viewing party. Drita would love to invite Gnat, but Natalie D will be there and there would definitely be a fight. Drita says no one would ever hire her again.
Ang arrives at Karen’s house. Karen called Ang because Renee is stressed out and needs good friends to lean on. AJ had to have surgery after the accident. Big Ang loves Karen’s place. Renee arrives soon after. Renee says her life is a mess and she can’t cope. She tells them about her doctor visit and that she got a text about AJ’s accident as soon as they hooked her up to an IV. Renee says she can’t take anymore. Ang says the girls’ drama is nonsense. Renee cries and says it hurts her that Ang defends Gnatalie because it shows she isn‘t being loyal to Renee. Ang gets annoyed that Renee is bringing up Gnat and says that that is nothing compared to her cousin facing life because of Junior. Now what does Junior’s informing on her cousin have to do with Renee? Nothing! Karen says it bothers her that everyone is sticking up for Gnat. Renee warns Ang that Gnat will tell everyone her business. Ang says she can’t tell my business, I have nothing to hide. Renee says Gnat told everyone she was doing drugs and that’s because Gnat was doing drugs with her [in Las Vegas last season]. Renee tried to warn Ang, but she doesn’t want to hear it. Ang tells her to worry about AJ right now, not Gnat.
Gnatalie is having a party at her new home. There are her friends from Philly, obnoxiously loud, like Gnat. One of Gnat’s friends brings some legal documents on Natalie D. According to the papers Natalie D had her boyfriend locked up three times. They laugh and say Natalie D is the cop caller. Gnat is planning to air her dirty laundry. This news has yet to be confirmed, and I am sure Natalie D will explain what they are talking about.
Ang is going to court for her cousin Ronnie, who has a wife and a family. He is going to be sentenced. Meanwhile, Renee is at the shrink’s office. First she tells her about Junior’s cooperation and how many people he sent to jail. Now he is putting Ang’s cousin in jail and she is worried Ang will stop talking to her because of it. Renee needs to know how to cope. Renee trusts no one. She feels the girls are playing with the enemy. Ang comes out of court and calls Drita to tell her that her cousin got 38 years! He is already 46 and will die in prison. Whose fault is that? First of all it’s his fault for committing the crime and second it’s Junior’s fault for ratting him out. It has nothing to do with Renee! Ang wonders how Renee is going to feel. Ang says she has always been there for Renee and wants to see what Renee is going to do in this situation.
Renee tells Ang that her taking her ex-husband’s business out on her isn’t fair. Ang gets up. Karen gets in the middle to prevent a fight. Ang turned into Godzilla and goes after Renee. Let’s hope Ang doesn’t topple over, she is top heavy after all.
