Watching Mob Wives with a heavy heart. It seems surreal that as we are grieving Ang, she is still bigger than life on our screens. Praying for her family. RIP Big Ang
Drita's house. She is complaining about Karen causing problems in her home and being obsessed with Lee. Delusional. She has finished the first draft of her book and is sending it to her agent. I'll believe it when I see it. She asks Giselle if she wants to check it out. Giselle doesn't seem interested. Smart kid. She asks Giselle what she wants for her birthday. She wants another dog. She tells her to ask Lee, she has him wrapped around her finger. Who thinks Drita is really writing a book? Not me. The thought of her sitting at her computer writing down her fake ass stories makes me laugh.
Renee's house. She sits down with AJ and shows him about three thousand dollars worth of traffic tickets. Whoa! His license is suspended in New Jersey. He pissed in the street and got a citation for $350. Renee is annoyed with his irresponsibility. AJ thinks she needs a hobby. She says he should stop getting tickets so she can afford a hobby.
Brittany meets up with Karen at a clothing store. Karen asks her if she invited Renee and Carla to her show. Brittany says no, she didn't want any drama. Karen says Brittany really doesn't understand these women, but she can invite who she wants. Brittany feels she needs to tell Karen about her meeting with Drita because Drita is riled up. Brittany tells Karen that, from what she understood, Marissa told Drita that Karen was bringing up the men. She tells Karen that Drita believes Karen is talking about the men . . . and in particular, "her man, Lee." Karen says, "The b*tch wants to start trouble. I'm not bringing up the men, B*tch." Brittany isn't clear exactly how the conversation went down between Drita and Marissa, but she does know everything was fine between Karen and Drita at the show and now Drita is flipping out. Karen is clear that Marissa said Drita was bringing up the men (which we all saw last week). Marissa said, "Drita was running her mouth in regards to her man reaching out to my man telling us girls to play nice." Brittany says she just wanted to give Karen the heads up because Drita was aggravated and there was some name calling, and Drita also said Karen was still hung up on Lee. Oh please! Let's get real! The only person on this planet hung up on Lee is Drita! Have you seen this dynamic duo in action? If not check out this recent blog, video included. Then you tell me who is "hung up" on Lee!
Karen turns to the cameramen "You can film that mother-f*ckers!" "Your husband's a p*ssy. Tell her that. Tell her that. Tell her that . . ." I don't think we have ever seen Karen this angry in any other season. Better hire a few more body guards Jenn.
Ang's House. Ang is doing laundry and Neil arrives with a bouquet of roses to apologize and talk. She tells him she doesn't want that junk. She said she was scared to go to the doctor. She had to go alone to find out she had lung cancer. She was hurt. Neil said she never asks or tells him anything. He said he went to all her appointments and he had no idea this one was so serious. He thought is as just for blood tests. Ang feels overwhelmed and Neil isn't doing enough. He tells her he is sorry and wants to come back home. He wants to be their for her to support her during her medical condition. Her health comes first for now. They make up. Watching this scene was heartbreaking. To be going through this serious health crisis, being overwhelmed and terrified, and continue on with the show in front of millions of people is unimaginable to me. I don't know where Ang found the strength and courage to put it all out there.
Carla, Karen and Renee are at the park playing bocci balls. Karen says she isn't in a good place. She starts to tell them about Drita, but wants to wait for Marissa because her name came up. Karen tells them about Brittany's fashion show and how Renee and Carla weren't invited. She says she met up with Brittany in the city and told them everything Drita said about her. Marissa says all she did was ask Drita if she was the one talking about their men speaking on the phone. Carla gets angry and wants Brittany to stay in her lane. Renee agrees that Brittany should mind her own business. Karen is done with Drita. They weren't supposed to talk about each other. They made a truce at the warehouse and she never sticks to her word. Karen says Drita is the laughing stock of New York City with that husband of hers.Karen got that right. Karen drops a little bomb . . . Drita got a group people arrested because she was f*cking someone and Karen adds you want to talk about men? Let's get started. Renee says this is a f*cking 911 problem now. Hire some more bodyguards Jenn.
Back to the doctor's office. Neil goes with Ang to the doctor to discuss the lung cancer surgery. The doctor describes the procedure. First they will remove the cancerous lesion and then the top half of the lung where it was located. If it's in the lymph nodes then she will need chemotherapy. Ang is scared. She already had too much surgery and doesn't want any more.
Renee takes AJ's advice and goes for some dancing lessons. She says she was always good at dancing. The instructor wants her to look at him not her feet. She has to trust him, he says. She says then you are f*cked because I trust no one. Renee has some great moves! Dancing With The Stars are you watching??? Renee is having so much fun, she should have done this years ago.
Carla and Ang go furniture shopping. Ang is the Queen decorator and Carla meds her advice. Ang tells her about the lung surgery and how anxious she is. Carla says Ang has gone through a lot. Ang tells her about Karen flipping out. The whole story comes out about Drita trying to blame Karen for talking about the men. Ang thought this was all resolved and they came to a truce. Carla is angry that Brittany talked sh*t about Karen to Drita when she brought her into the group. Ang thinks Marissa and Brittany should mind their own business. Carla and Ang think that Drita and Karen need to talk this out. They both feel there will be a war if they don't hash it out. Hey Jenn, hired another dozen bodyguards!
Karen's House. Karen wants to spend quality time with Karina and put the Drita BS to the side. Karen takes out all the packages her father sent her with his drawings. He spent 7 years in solitary confinement and spent the time creating art. His work is amazing. It kills Karen that Karina doesn't know her father as well as she should. Karen wants to show his work to the public because they they only know one side of him, as the most notorious underboss in the New York mob.
Ang drops in at Drita's store for lipstick. She tells her she is having another surgery. Drita tells her not to think anything negative. Drita knows she will survive and come out on top. Ang tells her there is a big problem brewing between her and Karen. Drita feels Karen has a hard on for her and her marriage. Delusions. Ang tells her that Carla says Karen isn't talking about anything. Drita is screaming about people getting in her business. She is flipping out and prepared to attack. Drita says she has been too nice for too long and they are going to be snapped in half. She was nice? She holds up a lipstick and screams, this is Carla! Looks like Carla has been promoted from mothball to lipstick. Drita doesn't want anyone talking about Lee. Next time Lee is mentioned out of Karen's mouth she will make her eat it and put her back in witness protection. Those are some mighty big fighting words! Jenn put the bodyguards number on speed dial!
Karen wants to help Ang get her mind off all the negativity. Karen set up an "art experience" for the girls as a distraction. It works! There is a teacher and she says they will be drawing a nude model. Woo Hoo! They girls all have smiles on their faces. They ask Ang to come up and ask her to help the model, Kurt, take his pants off. Ang doesn't hesitate for a second. Bad Bing, bada boom Kurt is exposed and so is little Kurt! Kurt poses and Carla wants to know what they are drawing? Ang says "his peeshee." They keep talking about his "peeshee," and then instructor tells them there are no bad drawings so they don't have to "rub" anything out. Ang is having a great time. Karen finds out she doesn't have her father's artistic talent. I think Karen did a great job all the same. Maybe I will do a blog analyzing these drawings. What do you say?
It's the morning of Ang's surgery. Neil and Ang drive to the city to NYU Langone. Her mind is overwhelmed. All she can think about is her children and grandchildren. She is the glue that holds them together. Will she ever see them again? Ang is so glad to have Neil there supporting her. She can't do this by herself. She says she had a full life, but she isn't done here. She wants to see her grandchildren grow up. Neil tells her she'll be fine. This hits very close to home for me. I'm in tears because I know exactly how Ang feels at this moment. We have to find a cure for this disease in our lifetimes so our children will never know what's it's like to lose any one to cancer. RIP Ang.
