The fight between Marissa and Brittany continues with a mini-army of security guards separating the two. They are fighting over nothing says Karen. Brittany makes attempt after attempt to free herself from the guards to attack Marissa. Carla says Brittany "got popped in the forehead." All the ladies try to stop the fight. Brittany calls Renee "a twat" for trying to end the fight. Nice. Marissa is hot under the collar about Brittany getting in her face, while Brittany says she will wait there all night if that's what it takes to fight it out. Drita says she can't fight there with all these people around, it's not like it's a parking lot. So Brittany wants to take it to the parking lot. Where did I see a fight in a parking lot recently? Hmmm
And in this corner we have "Rock'em Sock'em" Drita D'Avanzo who is meeting Ang at a building that used to be an old strip club. She is trying to bring back memories for her book. Now this same place is a restaurant. They go in and check out all the remodeling that went on over the years. Drita said she has been shot at and had guns in her face back in the day. Her father must be so proud. Lee used to go there too, but she didn't know him then. Lee doesn't want her to write the book because he closes the door to the past and never looks back. She says he won't read her book. Ang tells her don't let Lee get in her way.
Renee wiping down the crumbs in her kitchen when AJ and Andrea walk in with their luggage. Their room has been redone for them. She tells them no alcohol and no parties. AJ wants Renee to do the food shopping and cook dinner. Don't forget the snacks!
Marissa goes to see Ang and meet her for drinks. She wants to talk to her about Brittany. Ang tells her she has been going for tests for her health. Ang asks what happened between her and Brittany. Marissa says she walked in pretty and walked out pretty. Marissa says Brittany came with her hair in a braid and kept talking about fighting. Marissa explains when Brittany stood up, she defended herself. Ang says Marissa threw the first punch. Marissa says Ang seems to side with Brittany. Ang shouldn't blame her because of the way Brittany provoked her. Brittany makes her want to hit her. She wants Ang to warn Brittany she will never get the best of her.
Drita meets with Brittany and Andrea, Brittany's mother. Brittany is pissed off about what happened with Marissa and she wants Drita to tell her mother what went down. Brittany said Marissa threw the first punch, it landed but it didn't hurt her. Drita says she is a fighter and a fighter should be able to fight her f*ckin' battles. They are both pissed off at Karen, who was mad because Brittany was looking at Drita. Why can't she look at Drita? Drita says Karen should have called Brittany to see how she is doing. That's loyalty. Wait, what? Look who's talking? Drita is giving friendship advice now? Friends call each other? Did I just hear that? Is that why Drita called Karen to tell her she married Lee? And when "Carla disappeared off the face of the earth," did Drita call and ask how she was doing? Meanwhile, Andrea gets herself all worked up and starts yelling that their families go back 25 years and Karen doesn't have her daughter's back? Respect is earned. Karen should have been in her daughter's corner. They feel Karen chose Marissa's side. Maybe if they watch the episode ten times they will all see that Karen told both girls to talk it out of respect for her, Marissa was trying to talk, Brittany was agitated, not listening and standing over Marissa in her face yelling over her. Oh well.
Ang was called in by the doctor to go over test results. Neil goes with her and he always supports her. The doctor says they saw suspicious nodules in her lung and they have the potential to be cancerous. He wants a specialist in the field to do a biopsy. Ang is disgusted and says she will not go through any more surgeries. She would rather die. She insists she can't do this any more. The doctor insists she needs to take care of her health. She is worried, speechless and scared.
Carla and Karen meet up at Carla's new house. Boxes are all over the place. Every room has to be painted. Karen likes it. Carla wants her to see the before and after pictures. Back to the fight. Carla thinks Brittany was out of control. Carla says Marissa wasn't there to fight in a bikini and heels. Brittany came ready for a fight. Karen told her she wanted them to talk, but Drita pumped up Brittany so much and manipulated her into fight mode. Karen says Drita is trying to put a wedge into her relationship with Brittany. Carla doesn't think that Brittany had any reason to get that upset. Karen says she asked Marissa to talk and she was prepared to talk.
Drita is at her store, talking to prize package Lee on the phone. She tells him about the old strip club she visited. She says Lee would chill there back in the day with three girls at his table. She brings up her book and once again he is disgusted. She wants his support. He is stressing her out by not having her back. He doesn't want her talking about it. She wants him to be happy for her. All of a sudden Lee changes his attitude about the book. Really? Are we supposed to take this whole book thing and Lee's attitude seriously? The best thing I have heard about this book is when Karen told Drita she should start her book, "The day after I met Karen Gravano . . . "
Brittany is meeting up with Karen at a diner, questioning her loyalty and friendship. Brittany seems agitated right from the start. Brittany says she is disappointed. She wanted to fight that girl. She says everyone pumped her up and then told her not to fight. She feels Karen picked a side and it's with Marissa. Brittany feels Karen has no loyalty to her. Karen is pissed. She welcomed her to her home, she squashed the situation between her and Renee and she tried to resolve the problem between her and Marissa. Karen asks where is her loyalty? Karen asked her to have a conversation and talk it out, not fight. Brittany says her loyalty to Karen doesn't extend to all the other women. Karen tells her that she asked the same thing of Renee, to respect her enough to leave Brittany alone and she did. Karen said she asked her to sit down and talk, but she was standing over Marissa and ready to fight. Karen says Drita is not Brittany's friend, she is Karen's enemy. Karen says she manipulates people. Brittany says she likes Drita and feels she is the only one who had her back. Karen says she is going to put this behind them and will continue her friendship with both girls. Brittany says she doesn't trust Karen 100%. Karen says the relationship is tarnished and she will keep an eye on her. It's so ironic that Brittany questions Karen's loyalty over that of flip flopping Drita. Maybe she should have watched all the previous seasons before aligning with the "we're not friends like that anymore" Drita?
Ang is meeting with Karen and Renee. She tells them about her CT scan and the spot on her lungs which could be cancer. She says she can't even think about more surgery. She is scared and worried about dying. Ang starts crying, it's heartbreaking. She says everyone in her family relies on her and she doesn't want to worry them so she keeps everything to herself. Karen says you can't be strong for everyone all the time. Karen says this puts everything into perspective, and all the ridiculous fighting over petty Bull Sh*t. Ang says she is drained and mentally, emotionally and physically exhausted.
