The Mob Wives were busy filming the Reunion Show yesterday and I hear it was EPIC! But the drama must go on. Carla’s return ignited some Twitter drama this week which you can find in a few recent blogs that captured the Mob Wives’ little war of words, for those of you who may have missed it. Now on to the recap . . . This week’s episode fell a little flat for me, as my kids would say, “It was meh.” How about you? Did you enjoy it?
Drita and the girls get back from Disney World and reminisce. Another cute scene with Giselle and Aleeya. Drita has the girls making a scrapbook for their father for all the things he missed and to show they appreciate him. An early Christmas present. Yawn.
Gnatalie, Drita and Ang are hanging out together at a club to have fun. Drita feels guilty about questioning Gnat about her loyalty. Ang orders a lot of liquor. They decide not to talk about Renee and have fun. They go to the other room to dance. Ang declares she likes Gnatalie and if anyone doesn’t like it, too bad. Yawn.
At Renee’s house, Renee says she is glad Gnat apologized, but she still has Karen and Natalie D to deal with. Natalie D. pops in, she loves to hang out with Renee. Natalie D invites her to her Christmas party for a charity event she is hosting to collect Toys for Tots. Natalie asks Renee about her Thanksgiving. Renee fills her in on her talk with Gnatalie. Basically, Gnat said she was sorry for some of the things she did. Renee says she will never be good with Gnat unless she apologizes to Karen. We all know that will never happen! Natalie D. asks if Drita broke Gnat's face? Renee says absolutely not. Last time Natalie D. saw Drita she was going to beat up Gnat. Natalie D. says, "Drita is the Mother f*ckin’ puppet." Natalie D. adds if she wants to hang with a f*ckin’ rat that’s on her.
Gnatalie and her mother are meeting with London and his mother. Who the hell thought this was a good scene? Gnat’s mother asks why are they meeting. Gnat jokes and says she is pregnant (no comment). Norma, London’s Mom, looks very nice. Gnatalie feels since she and London are close and living together, their mothers should meet. Nancy, Gnat’s mom, asks about them having children, the clock is ticking. London and Gnat aren’t at that point yet. London says they have to work some things out, like Gnat’s big mouth. And, they discuss how they are both stubborn. Right about now I am done with filler scenes. Feeling a little sorry for London, if he hasn’t seen the light by now, he never will.
Renee is popping in on Carla and she brought her some little Mob Candy gifts. Renee was really touched that Carla came to her Mob Candy party. Renee invites her to Natalie D.’s Christmas party. Carla asks if Drita and Ang are going. Renee says yes. Carla tells her she was shocked by Drita’s lack of emotion over seeing her. She just ran for her coat. Carla says she stuck up for Drita in so many fights and now she doesn’t even talk to her? Then we see numerous scenes from past seasons where Carla had Drita's back every time. Not that we needed reminding about Carla's loyalty to Drita. Carla is confused and wants to know what is up with Drita. Don’t we all want an answer to that question? Carla says she didn’t even say two words to me before jetting out of there? Renee asks if she would sit down and talk to her. Carla says yes, she wants to know what Drita has against her. Maybe Carla should cut her losses now? You can’t be friends with a flip-floppin’ floozie. (Thanks Ramona for pegging her at the get go.)
Drita and the scrapbook again. Oy vey. Drita hides the scrapbook in Lee’s store so he can find it. Then she calls him on the phone so he look for his early Christmas present. He seems to like it. He looks at it while he is on the phone instead of sitting down with the whole family so the girls can watch him go through it and see his reaction. Nice. Lee wants to go Christmas shopping. Filler, filler, filler. and I am not talking about Christmas stockings! God forbid these two ever talk in person.
Karen tells Karina that Storm is cooking dinner. Apparently, Karen is not a cook. Her brother, Gerard got the cooking genes. Karen wants Karina and Storm to get to know each other. Karen says Karina will have the best of both worlds, west coast and east coast. Karen gets a call from Sammy in prison. Karen says she and Karina speak to her dad once a week. Karen is going to call their attorney over a reduction in sentencing. Sammy is incarcerated for a nonviolent drug conviction and a new law was passed that could shorten his sentence. Karen is going to do her best to get him out early. He has been in prison 15 years already.
Gnatalie and London go to couple’s therapy. Ugh! They have been together two years, but they have a couple of things to work out. Only a couple? Gnat’s temper is out of control. Ya think? He says a lot of their problems iare about her issues with the girls and he doesn’t know why she is letting the girl drama affect their relationship. The therapist notices that Gnat’s voice keeps going up as she explains her side of things and, when that happens, London starts to shut down. She points that out to them. He wants to know what to do when she screams at him in public? How about get the hell out of there and let her walk home? Gnat isn’t happy with the therapist. She could have solved the issue herself. Oh yeah, then why are they even there? The therapist gives them a little advice. Look into each other’s eyes with one hand one each other’s heart. Soon London leans in to kiss the Gnat. Gnat says this is a great first step to marriage. Uh oh . . . Run, London, run! I could have used the time wasted on this scene to take a nap.
Drita meets up with Ang to do some shopping. The do a little reminiscing because the store is located in the same spot as Ang's old bar, "Nocturnal," which is where Drita and Ang first met. Of course the highlight of their memories is talking about how many people Drita laid out on the floor. I think those stories are all BS judging from the fact Drita was the only one to get a black eye in 5 seasons. Then Ang asks Drita if she was invited to Natalie D.'s party. Drita makes a face and says she feels sick to her stomach because Gnat has shown her nothing but respect and this Natalie D. got her all rev'ed up to where she wanted to bash Gnat's head in. Drita says she confronted Gnat and she was crying. Ang agrees. She can't say anything bad about Gnat either. Oh well, what can you do? I just hope the rest of the show delivers a "punch."
Finally, (the scene that saves the episode) we are at Natalie D.’s Toys for Tots charity event to give children who are less fortunate a good Christmas. Natalie D. is looking forward to the girls from New York coming. She wants to ask Drita about her flip-flopping too. Karen, Carla, Renee arrive. Ang comes in with Neil. Ang loves the glamour and decorations of the party. Renee wants to know why Drita took off when she saw Carla. Drita is missing and Ang says she isn’t coming. Natalie D. walks over and thanks them all for coming and then asks, where’s Drita. Ang says she didn’t come. Natalie D. is pissed that Drita didn’t call or email her she wasn’t coming. Natalie D. says she went to New York to support Drita’s Calendar party. Karen says maybe she didn’t come because out of the other Gnatalie. Renee excuses herself from a situation that she feels is going to turn ugly. Good move Renee!
Natalie D. starts talking about Gnat and Ang gets disgusted to the point she regrets coming. Natalie D. was filling in Carla about recent events, but Ang wants her to talk about something else besides Gnat. Natalie D. says Drita not being there is weird, last time she saw her she was going to rip Gnat’s face off. Ang claims she is not Drita’s keeper. Ang says it’s annoying that every time she sees Natalie D. she talks about Gnatalie, now it’s about Drita.
REUNION tidbit: Vivica A Fox hosts the Reunion Show, confirmed via Renee, the one thing that has been verified. We are delighted with Mob Wives choice as Vivica brings class to any show she participates in.
