Mob Wives: Season 6? What's in the Sauce?
What's in the sauce?
It ain't just meatballs!
While watching the Mob Wives Reunion Part 2, taking notes and trying my best to tweet, I caught a glimpse of a tweet Mob Mistress posted. I got a big laugh out of it considering all the non-stop drama we had in season five that continued on the reunion and overflowed on to twitter. Here is the secret ingredient that Mob Mistress thinks has been added to the traditional Sunday sauce recipe:
and that sums up the explosive season 5 drama
in a bullet shell
Now what? There is no word on a season 6 at all. I'm waiting for VH1 or Jennifer Graziano to leak something. Are they trying to decide on a season 6? Are they holding off until they figure out who will be in the cast? Are they trying to envision possible storylines that will bring the show back to New York wives who have history and legitimate mob ties? Who knows? But my imagination is going a little crazy imagining the possibilities.
First of all, no more Philly chicks and no more tapes. What is recorded in Philly should stay in Philly. Let them go get their own show if they want to air their dirty laundry. "Philly Wives, Lies and Videotapes." By the way, Pennsylvania is a two party consent state when it comes to recording people, so if you don't tell them you are taping, it's illegal. Now you can call me a rat.
Drita says she will not be back, she apparently has her own show. Speculating about that show is for another blog. Let's say she returns full-time or makes guest appearances. Carla has a real beef to settle with her. This blogger has been harsh on Carla, but I am very sympathetic to her situation. Who among us has not had a close friend betray us for no reason? Someone who you spoke to regularly and suddenly talked to you less and less while they distanced themselves? Someone who you have stood by and helped, shared meals and personal thoughts and feelings. We saw the friendship play out on the show and off the show. Then it ended. No reason given. "We aren't friends like that any more . . . she's like talking to a mothball in my closet." Carla needs to have her say. If Drita doesn't want to face the music, then Carla will have something to talk about to the others. P.S. Carla can use some of her soaps to wash her hands of Drita!
Oh and there is another beef Karen was trying to get out in the Reunion Part 2, the "elephant in the room" that we have blogged about before. Drita "sold out" Carla, Ramona and Karen at the end of season three. From what I have gathered, the four of them had a packed not to do the show unless they all got a raise. Three of them kept their word and one did not. Fans of Drita defend her saying she had her family to feed. They don't seem to extend that same consideration to the other three ladies. So we would like Ramona to come back and all three ladies need to have a little sit down with Drita. Do I think that will happen? Absolutely not. One "red-eye" for Drita was enough.
Karen also has a beef with Alicia, but Alicia does not want to meet up with Karen on the show and talk truth. I'm sure if she had been open to it we would have seen that unfold this season. Instead, Karen had to explain her side in bits and pieces on the Reunion Part 1, about two years after Alicia ran her mouth on season four. I guess Alicia is okay with that? I'm not. I want to hear the whole story, in Karen's words, uninterrupted.
Karen has said she would like to sit down and talk to Victoria Gotti. Considering the long mob history between the Gottis and the Gravanos, this story line would be epic and probably make history in and of itself. Can they get Victoria Gotti to agree to come on the show and have this conversation? We'll see. Maybe they two mob daughters will get some closure from such an experience.
Renee and Carla made up for the sake of their very long friendship. I would like to see more of them rebuilding their friendship as in new season, new beginnings. Maybe they can figure out why Drita was clearly upset that the two of them are not only friends but "kissin' cousins?" Well Drita never did understand the meaning of a real friendship anyway. Karen reached out to her several times in season one and it was like talking to a brick wall. Drita's stance is that when Karen moved to Arizona they stopped being friends. And when Carla was no longer on Mob Wives, they stopped being friends. Hmmm, I am picking up a pattern here. Did I mention Drita unfollowed/blocked everyone except Big Ang? Chirp, chirp.
I would like to see Love Majewski come back, she has a very colorful past and lots of history with the girls. And, if we are going to add someone new, can it please be a REAL Mob Wife like Diondrea Nicosia? I'm sure she would bring a lot to the table. Both of these ladies were on "I Married a Mobster" and their stories continue to generate the most hits and comments of all the blogs we wrote on that series.
So Jenn and VH1 let's get this party started. There is still more life left in Mob Wives! Keep it in New York! Keep it real! Let's get back to what the show is supposed to be about.
What would you like to see if there is a season six? You never know who is reading!
