No Story Here – Keep Moving by NoMoreDrama
No retraction to the misinformation former Huff Post contributor turned blogger NaughtyButNice Rob posted about Bethenny Frankel’s apartment.
“Naughty But Nice broke that news that Bethenny Frankel bought her $5 million apartment in her assistant’s name, just after she purchased it – with a mortgage. Making her divorce even more complex.”
I just realized he talks about himself in the third person. Weird. He wrote that quote above.
Instead, Rob whined about it on twitter to TEB – a friend of our blog (read from the bottom up). I guess he hoped TEB’s credibility would deflect from his lack of credibility. Of course he didn’t tell her what he did. Dumbass.
What Rob did was try to sensationalize a perfectly normal business move by Bethenny Frankel. He said straight out that Bethenny BOUGHT her condo in an assistant’s name. Not true at all.
Lynnfam’s T-REX (see yesterday’s comments) pulled the deed:
“Okay folks I pulled the deed of sale, links (below) and also pulled the Power of Attorney paperwork assigned to the case for the Condominium association. Ms Molly Hayden is listed as the “Trustee” of MYC Trust, she is NOT the owner only signing the documents as the TRUSTEE. Now, we all know that Jason Hoppy has a real estate background and in NO WAY was this transaction or Trust setup without his knowledge, in fact he probably was the one to help with the lawyers to SET THIS up! It is not uncommon in NYC. Due this in fact there are several other units in this building alone setup this way. All of this paperwork is completely accessible online”
Essentially for those of us with no business knowledge, the real estate transaction was between the sellers and MYC Trust. Bethenny’s assistant was the trustee and person who signs documents. That’s it. Show is over. Nothing unusual at all. Any further questions should be directed to T-Rex- our super sleuth.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Cast Blogs by Stars99
Sorry guys, Adrienne, The Martyr is just too busy whining about how Paul always needs to be the center of attention while she hypocritically commandeers everyone’s attention at Lisa and Ken’s anniversary party by crying herself into a lil puddle of goo – to bother to write a blog for us this week. Paul took the phrase “make like a tree and leave” quite literally this week, no?
“Adrienne is having a party to promote another product that she is working on and there is no way on God’s green earth I want to, or was even invited to, socialize with them. I was very shocked to see Marisa stirring the pot the way she did, that is not the Marissa I know and like.”
Gee, lucky us! Another week – another product promotion opportunity shoved in our face. Stirring the pot? Perhaps she shouldn’t have said anything to the others, but then again, that wouldn’t have helped provide the drama point that was needed for the end of the year party, no? Brandi, you are the one who stirred the pot in the first place… Who suggests to someone else – even as a joke – that a hall pass could save their marriage? Are you freakin’ kidding me? Over and over again you have made it abundantly clear to Marisa that you think she undervalues her husband and that she says inappropriate things about him. I agree that Marisa needs to seriously consider how her words and her thoughts may be having severe adverse effects on the quality of her marriage. She needs to get a grip on it before she causes irreparable damage. And by the way, no Marisa – not every married woman who looks at a tall drink of water immediately wants to take the plunge.
“Thank goodness for Yolanda setting these cackling hens straight. I told y’all Yolanda was gangster. I was really shocked to hear that Marisa and Dean thought I had a crush on him or that ANYONE would think I would flirt with a married man other than Ken (I love him) after all I have been through.”
I love our Yo and yes, I would NOT like to meet her in a dark alley if she was displeased with me. Her icy stare could scare me to death. Brandi, of course you flirt with Ken – Lisa’s happy you do it – it’s one less thing she has to do… lol. I dunno, Brandi – It really is not a stretch for me to think that you could innocently flirt with a married man – I think you’re an equal opportunity flirter – you seem to flirt with anyone who has two legs. You’re actually flirting with everyone when you almost wear clothes – you know, the kind that are a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen? You’re flirting – you’re just not using your words, you’re using your body. However, that being said – I do not believe for a moment that you would ever knowingly do anything to break up a marriage.
“Faye, Faye, Faye. I think that she just makes things up in her head to get camera time. I wasn’t found naked in a bathroom in any way shape or form. I simply had a ten-second, fully clothed makeout session with a hot man. The only person that walked in was Lisa and she pulled me out of the bathroom by my ear like a good mum. (BTW I dated that hot man for six months after “bathroom gate”. We are still close friends, in fact he is my real estate agent!)”
Mauricio is cranky that he didn’t know that all he had to do is kiss you to get a potential real estate commission check.
“I was so excited that Lisa finally agreed to renew her vows with Ken because if she wasn’t going to then I was. It was an amazing setting, and I was looking forward to getting things straight with Marisa because I do genuinely like her.”
Yeah, I like Marisa for the most part, too… except she’s been disappointing me recently. And I do hate what she says about her relationship and her husband… I hope she really watches herself throughout this season and learns something. She strikes me as the kind of person who would look at herself on tv and be surprised at how she comes across – then make the appropriate changes.
“I wasn’t shocked to hear the news that Adrienne and Paul were separating. But I thought the timing was so interesting. How do you have a huge party with all of your “friends” one day and then decide to separate a few days later on the date of Lisa’s party?”
Well, duh… they just had to stay together until after the vodka launch. Then Adrienne, always the Martyr, tried to figure out how to best take attention away from Lisa – and voila! Not only did they announce their separation on the actual day of Lisa’s anniversary party – but then Adrienne actually showed up to the party! Who knew she could stoop that low? I mean… holy crap on a cracker… how can you do that? Oh yeah… cuz Bravo MADE you come to the party. The cynic in me thinks she actually thought that by making her divorce announcement on the day of the party that she could get out of going to Lisa’s end of the year/wrap party… but then Bravo didn’t budge on her having to show up….lol… who knows?
“I was disgusted with Faye, and not mad but disappointed with Marisa. I may not give the best marriage advice but I was coming from a place of love.”
C’mon, for someone who prides herself on being honest – you surely were not coming from a place of love. You were needling Marisa. Didn’t we all know that Marisa would tell someone? We just didn’t know it would be so many people at once. But, Marisa is heading into these last couple of shoots with very little story line – and if she wants to be back next year – she needed to stir up trouble. You gave her a perfect opportunity. A cynic might entertain the notion that the whole thing was planned… Allegedly. By the by… Kyle gets points in my book for saying to all the women standing there talking about the text message that she doesn’t think that Brandi would ever “go there with a married man.” Her comments seemed really sincere to me.
Sorry guys, Camille’s two faces are just too busy kissing Faye’s two faces – to bother to write a blog for us this week (didn’t that scene with them greeting each other make you throw up a lil?) [Shivers…].
Sorry guys, Kim is just too busy figuring out how she can “Escape to Witch Mountain” again – to bother to write a blog for us this week.
Sorry guys, Kyle is just too busy trying to get Faye to return all of the Chanel bags that she has borrowed from her over the years – to bother to write a blog for us this week.
Lisa starts her blog by talking about her friendship with Brandi and how she wasn’t going to attend Adrienne’s party.
“I viewed with sadness the patronizing manner in which she continues to address her husband. The high jinx of him clowning around was one of the reasons we always loved him, but her efforts to emasculate him constantly baffle me. He is basically a good guy and although he has been thoroughly detrimental about me in the past, I am aware he was coerced. He reached out to me after I voiced a modicum of support in the midst of some serious allegations. He apologized profusely and has repeatedly come to my restaurants and attempted to resolve things. We have supported him in our belief in standing up for what was right and try to support him through what has been a difficult time.”
Paul has GOT to be so relieved to not be in a relationship with someone as hypercritical as Adrienne. Nothing he ever did was good enough… And this is coming from a woman who uses Softsoap to wash off her chicken before cooking it! It’s really interesting to me how Lisa and Brandi seem to be in a good place with Paul these days. Oooo oooo oooo… and really, what women calls her husband “pathetic” for getting spray painted and climbing a tree in order to get into the spirit of a party? He’s a nut! I love that part about him! She’s lucky he didn’t do worse… He could have been standing on a table in some Maloof Hooves or something…
“We then witness Marisa exposing the obviously playful text from Brandi until Yolanda stepped in. This is why I love her. . .her no nonsense type of attitude. Faye shows up with her input, which when I saw the footage disgusted me.”
I love me some Yo… and Faye disgusts us all.
“I was the one who knocked on the door, opened it as they were all gossiping outside at the party. Yes she was having a good old snog as we say in England. What is wrong with that? However I knew this was a fuel for many if I didn’t intervene. Now would she have taken it further? I don’t know you will have to ask her. . . but she didn’t.”
It’s kind of funny that they were all gossiping about something in which you had firsthand knowledge. I’m kind of not sure how you exactly walked in on someone in a bathroom… but ummm… I’m just gonna let it go… lol.
“This was our anniversary but we were all aware that it would also be our final party of the season, where we do include many who have been involved in our circle. Taylor had a plus one and had invited Linda, which worried me for a second but Yolanda quickly reassured me all was well.”
I gotta say it really bothered me that Linda was there. Who invites the ex-wife of one of your cast mates to a season wrap-up party? Once again, just when I think Taylor is getting somewhat normal – she goes and pulls this crap. Linda was not at all a part of this season – so why, oh why was she at the party? The hysterical thing is that Linda was on the screen for what, a whole 30 seconds? And in that time, she managed to insult the entire middle class with her comment about bringing the jam. Kinda makes me giggle.
“Yolanda and Brandi confronted Marisa on what went down at Adrienne’s party. I was intent on staying as far away from that conversation as possible but Faye, of course, comes and inserts herself in the middle of it. I would hazard a guess she was looking for trouble.”
Faye is always looking for trouble and wants to be a housewife so bad it’s painful to watch. She has even kissed up to Camille! Whoa… it would be hysterical, if it wasn’t so sad.
“It worries me that she perceives the definition of a lady can be defined by a handbag. There are many women I would have interest in hearing their opinion of what makes a lady — Resnick is not one of them. Her reputation precedes her.”
As Yo would say, “Who in this world is Faye Resnick?” Oh yeah, she’s that “morally corrupt” chick who profited off the violent, horrific death of her best friend by writing a “tell all” book and by posing for Playboy. Why yes, I think that’s EXACTLY who is qualified to talk about being a “lady.”
Sorry guys, Marisa is just too busy fantasizing about the pool guy to bother to write a blog for us this week.
Sorry guys, Taylor is just too busy learning how to make jam for a fundraiser for her-middle-class self – to bother to write a blog for us this week.
Yolanda H. Foster
Yo starts her blog by talking about how difficult it’s been for her to write her blog because of her Lyme disease. She said that David sometimes helps her out with it when she’s at home – but since she’s in Florida getting treatments – she’s on her own. I think she really has a knack for writing – even though English isn’t her first language. Her blogs are well constructed and are always longer than anyone else’s. It seems like she puts a lot of thought into them. She could have easily decided not to write them (like so many of them do)… she has a really understandable excuse to quit and yet she has stuck with it. I really admire that about her.
“It’s so frustrating, because I love writing and putting my thoughts on paper, as it has always been my way of digesting my thoughts and feelings. The good thing is I am starting to have good days with clarity, so my future is looking bright. I will continue to pave the way and share my health journey with the world until I find a cure and proper diagnostic testing for this silent killer called Lyme disease.”
We continue to pull for you, Yo!
“I thought Ken was hilarious. I am so happy to know his hip is working like a little charm and he is ready for another 30 years with Princess Pinky.”
Totally dies laffing… I gotta admit, the first time I read this, I truly thought she said, “another 30 years with Princess Pindy.” I had to read it like 3 times to understand she wasn’t talking about our own Princess Pindy.
“I never liked big parties, especially going alone. I much prefer smaller gatherings that are more intimate. A couple of shots of Zing would have definitely made me a lot more relaxed, but I just have not been comfortable enough to let my guard down amongst this feisty group.”
If you’ve learned anything from this season, you should have learned NEVER to let your guard down with this group of women.
“Thank god I didn’t, because I needed every bit of my Lyme brain to function in order to understand what these adult women with their high school antics were trying to do, which was clearly throwing Brandi under the bus. Guess what, that ain’t gonna happen under my watch.”
I gotta say, I loved how you handled the whole situation.
“I feel Marisa should have waited to discuss the text message with Brandi rather then sharing this private discussion with a bunch of women that she knew didn’t have the best intentions with Brandi. When Faye started her B-bashing, once again I just felt like I was trapped in a circle with a bunch of women I honestly have little in common with.”
That’s just because you’re not a mean, vicious, back-stabbing wannabe who will do anything to be the center of attention.
“Maybe that sounds arrogant or mean, but it’s just not the way I choose to conduct myself. I don’t mind having a debate or agreeing to disagree with someone face to face, but I am very righteous and will stand up against all of them when I feel like they are ganging up on someone. Trash talk is dangerous, especially when it comes from hearsay.”
I’m guessing with the language issue, you may not understand how haughty the phrase “I am very righteous” comes off sounding… I really think you meant that you stand up for the truth or for what’s right… And, as we’ve learned from hearing your perspective this season – it’s the spirit and intent of the words that is important.
“Watching Adrienne and Paul interact is painful. I always wondered why she talks to her husband the way she does. In my eyes it seemed so extremely disrespectful, but I guess we now know why.”
Yeah… about halfway through Season1 we knew that “the Bickersons” shtick wasn’t funny… it was sad.
“It was very interesting to see how Wendy, who is a successful newscaster, was so surprised with the way I treat my husband. Funny that people mistake such kindness with weakness. Obviously I am by no means a doormat, but I do take great pride in tending to and taking care of my man. Maybe I am old-fashioned that way, but he is the king in my household and I absolutely love it that way.”
It kinda cracks me up… I recently had a conversation with someone about Yo and David and I completely disagreed with their assessment. I actually think that Yo is the one who wears the pants in that family on all subjects outside of his music and career. She just loves to anticipate the needs of David and of her family and she endeavors to meet those needs. She enjoys making them happy! It gives her great joy to give. Remember one of the first times we ever saw Yo – she was talking about how she told David that she didn’t want jewels or expensive stuff from him – but that she wanted love letters? Once you have that kind of love… nothing else really matters. Well except that it’s nice having that mansion in Malibu with the lemon orchard… but I digress… Never mistake kindness with weakness, indeed!
“Rather then standing around talking about the birds and the bees, I wanted to hold Marisa responsible for throwing Brandi under the bus at Adrienne’s party so we could move on from that. For a minute, I was speechless when Faye inserted herself into our conversation uninvited. I honestly have never seen anyone behave so rudely and inappropriately. How hypocritical from someone that is trying to belittle another woman for her behavior?”
Yeah, “hypocritical” is one word for it. There are other words that I’m not allowed to type that I could use to describe Faye.
“I saw how these Pit Bulls treated Brandi last year, and that ain’t going to happen as long as this sheriff is in town. The fact that Faye defines a woman by a Chanel bag is the most pathetic thing I have ever heard. To be honest, I think it’s an insult to the intelligence of a woman!”
Faye IS an insult to women.
“Anyway, let’s stay positive and put our focus back on the beauty of this romantic night at Villa Rosa. Next week you will be seeing a very special moment between Lisa and Ken. It’s probably the most precious and vulnerable I have ever seen Lisa, so please make sure to tune in!”
“Mob Wives” By Detox
Welcome back to “Mob Wives”!
This week, Karen has a bit of a guilt-induced breakdown while reviewing evidence from her father’s trial to try to see if she can help him get out of prison early. Ramona responds by providing her with some tough love. Renee and Drita take Krav Maga lessons. Love continues to complain over the fact that she keeps hearing that Carla is going all around Staten Island saying very nasty things about her. Drita tells the camera (but not Love) that she is fed up with hearing Love talk about Carla. Karen has a sit-down with Dave and his new girlfriend, Rebecca. Drita shows off her skills as a makeup artist. Love and Big Ang go lingerie shopping so that Love can get ready to meet up with her ex-boyfriend and the “love of her life,” Fate, who has come to Staten Island all the way from Las Vegas to visit her. Karen’s dog, Ozzy, gets a much-needed bath. Karina uses Ozzy’s spa pampering time to be insensitive and disrespectful to her Mother and to basically let her know that she prefers Rebecca over her. Ramona seems irritated by this. Karen, on the other hand, responds with nothing but love and support for Karina despite her basically disrespectful behavior. Love finally meets up with her ex-boyfriend after 7 years. Karen throws a house party in her Arizona home and, at Karen’s invitation, Dave and Rebecca graciously attend. Ramona pulls both Dave and Rebecca aside separately at the party so she can interrogate each of them. Drita goes to Boot Camp class to get in shape and seriously entertains the thought of murdering the instructor. Big Ang and Drita discuss the fact that the situation between Love and Carla is escalating, unbeknownst to Carla. And they decide that they have to talk to Carla in an effort to figure out a way to resolve everything with Love before Love unleashes her “fists of fury” on Carla.
O.K. Let’s get started discussing these Mob Wives!
Karen And Ramona Visit The Storage Unit
Karen and Ramona are still in Arizona. They make a trip to the storage unit Karen’s brother Gerard told her about last episode in order to see if they can find evidence that will allow Karen’s father to possibly get out of prison early. The storage unit is filled with materials relating to the trial of Karen’s father (and, possibly, materials relating to the connected trials of Karen’s brother Gerard and Dave in connection with the ecstasy ring formerly operated by Karen, Gerard and Dave, and for which Karen’s father took full responsibility despite, according to Karen, having no involvement). Karen interviews that she and Ramona made the trip to Arizona not only to handle her business with Dave, but also to see if they could find any evidence that would prove that her father did not know he could get 20 years instead of 15 years when he accepted a plea deal.
Renee Suggests Bonding Over Krav Maga Lessons to A.J.
Renee walks into A.J.’s room while he is lounging lazily on his bed. She tells him about her visit to the kennel to look at attack dogs. She then tells him that she has decided to get an attack dog because he is often out spending the night with his girlfriend, Sydney (If I were one or both of Sydney’s parents, I either would not be too pleased to hear this or a bit embarrassed that the nation now knew that I allowed my daughter to sleep with her boyfriend in my home. Maybe Sydney’s parents had no idea, though. If that’s the case, they sure do know what is up now. “Look, Mom and Dad!! I’m sexually active!! YAY!!”).
Renee then tells A.J. that the total cost of the attack dog is going to be “about $20,000.” A.J.’s eyes widen, and, with a slightly-raised voice, he bluntly tells Renee that he will “slap” her if she “spends $20,000 on a DOG!!”
Renee just ignores him and changes the subject. She tells A.J. that she has signed up to take Krav Maga classes. She interviews that, in rehab, she learned that she needs to take her aggression out in healthy ways. She also feels the need to learn how to protect herself. She thinks Krav Maga will serve both purposes for her. Renee then tells A.J. that she feels like they need to start doing “Mother and Son stuff to bond and repair our relationship.” To that end, she asks A.J. to take the Krav Maga classes with her. A.J. basically says, “Hell no.”
Renee then tells him that she will just ask somebody ELSE to take the classes with her since he does not want to cooperate. He looks like he could not care any LESS. Instead of responding, he just looks at Renee and lets out a big YAWN. Renee interviews that A.J. makes it seem like she is overreacting and being dramatic (Gee, I wonder why, Renee! I know you’ve been through some serious stuff, but you ARE dramatic, and you DO overreact. A.J. is just over it. That’s all.). A.J. tells Renee that she is “too wound up” and “needs to loosen up.” Renee responds by jumping on A.J. while he is in bed and playfully wrestling with him. Finally, A.J. shows some emotion, and he starts laughing while he protests and playfully fights back.
Karen Goes On A Guilt Trip
Back at her Arizona home, Karen has taken out some tapes and other things from 1 of the boxes of evidence she removed from her brother’s storage unit. She starts reviewing some of the videotapes of her father’s trial, and Ramona sits there silently watching the tapes with her. She interviews that sitting in that courtroom next to her Mother “was the most devastating experience” because her father, her brother and the father of her child were all charged, tried, later convicted and sentenced to serve hard time.
Karen then starts listening to one of the recordings of telephone conversations people in her home, including her father, had at the time they were unknowingly under surveillance by the authorities in connection with the drug ring. She says she is trying to find a conversation between her father and his attorney that proves that her father did not know he could get an extra 5 years when he accepted his plea deal as agreed (In short, Sammy “The Bull,” accepted a plea deal for 15 years without knowing that he could get an extra 5 years tacked on, resulting in a total of 20 years’ time in prison).
Karen tells Ramona that, during the raid on her parents’ home, the authorities “took $1.2 million in cash and jewelry from us.” She interviews that listening to the FBI recordings of her family’s conversations angers her. Karen angrily starts to destroy one of the audiotapes before Ramona pulls it out of her hands. Ramona screams that Karen is “in NO frame of mind to go through these things right now” and forcefully takes a box of evidence away from Karen. Karen interviews that her father took the rap for her and Gerard. One of the reasons he told her he was going to do this was because her daughter Karina was just a baby at the time, and he told Karen that he “didn’t want Karina to grow up without a mother.”
Karen cries and tells Ramona she feels like her father is in prison and could DIE there because of HER mistakes and HER refusal to listen to his advice and warnings to her. Ramona basically shakes Karen and SCREAMS at her, “Your Father forgave you! Your Mother forgave you! Your brother forgave you! EVERYBODY had forgiven you! Now, it’s time for you to forgive YOURSELF and MOVE ON!! ENOUGH!!” (It’s a little shocking to hear Ramona scream at Karen like this, but it reminds me of the way Karen screamed at Ramona when she found out Ramona was going to marry her fiance’ despite the fact that he is looking at a significant amount or prison time. I may not always like these two, but I DO love the way they give each other tough love when they fear for each other in an effort to force the other one to “SNAP OUT OF IT!!” I like their loyalty and their friendship. They really are like family to one another.)
Renee And Drita Take Krav Maga Lessons
Renee walks into her Krav Maga class accompanied by Drita. She interviews that, since A.J. would not take the class with her, she decided to “take the kick-ass bitch with me.” (I’m assuming “the kick-ass bitch” is Drita).
While they are being instructed on some of the Krav Maga moves, the instructor cautions them to watch their wrist placement when they are striking someone because, if they are not careful, they can break their own wrists. Drita interviews that she remembers breaking her wrist when she hit someone in the past.
Renee and Drita have very different reactions throughout the class. Initially, as the tough-talking instructor is teaching and barking out orders to them, Renee looks petrified. Drita, on the other hand, interviews that “the teacher is SO CRAZY! I LOVE him!!”
Renee is forced to “hit” one of the instructor’s assistants to show that she knows how to perform one of the moves just taught to her. She weakly hits the assistant and immediately says, “I’m sorry.” She interviews that she feels bad hitting somebody. Renee then softly knees the assistant in the groin and immediately apologizes again (This makes me giggle for some reason).
Drita, on the other hand, has no hesitation when she practices the moves taught to her. She looks like she is in heaven learning a new fighting technique.
Renee finally toughens up and starts repeating the moves taught to her more forcefully and stops apologizing. She interviews that she actually had fun during the class. She says that she “learned how to put someone to sleep without an Ambien, a Lunesta or a Xanax!!” (and smiles a big sh*t-eating grin when she says this).
“I Am So SICK of Hearing Love Talk About Carla!!”
Drita, Renee and Love all meet for dinner.
Renee and Drita laughingly tell Love about their Krav Maga class. Renee says she is anti-violent, but she had fun. She brings up Carla’s name and says that, even though she is anti-violent, Carla inspires “violent feelings” in her. Love, who is no big fan of Carla herself, jumps on another opportunity to talk about how she has her “own issues with Carla, and I’m going to crack her in the fuckin’ HEAD!”
Drita looks annoyed. She interviews that she is “so SICK of hearing Love talk about Carla!!”
The 3 of them end up having a good time throwing darts after they eat. During and after the dart game, Renee and Love ask Drita if she has spoken to Karen or Ramona since they flew out to Arizona. Drita says she has not spoken to either one of them.
Renee and Love are more than happy to provide Drita with a “Karen And Ramona Trip To Arizona Update.” They tell her how Karen found out that Dave had been living with his new girlfriend for a while without even letting her know that he moved out of the home on which she was paying the mortgage, allowing him to live “rent-free so he could get back on his feet after he got out of prison.” They then tell her how Karina loves Dave’s new girlfriend and seems to have an attitude with Karen. They also tell Drita that Rebecca has been spending time alone with Karina and even brought her to a doctor’s appointment without Dave even consulting Karen about any of this. Finally, they tell her that Karen is set to meet up with Dave and his new girlfriend personally so she can have a talk with both of them. Drita interviews that if she was meeting her ex-e’s new girlfriend to discuss their child, she would have her “foot on her neck” as she was talking to her. Renee says that if she were in Karen’s position, she would have probably hurt “the bitch by now!” (I thought you were anti-violent, Renee.).
Karen Meets “The Ice Queen”
Karen is sitting alone at a restaurant table waiting for Dave and his new girlfriend Rebecca to meet her.
Finally, Dave comes strolling in with Rebecca by his side. Once they are seated, Dave says that he decided it would be a good idea for all of them to meet and talk (Oh, STFU, Dave!! YOU decided??!! Boy, Bye!! KAREN decided and then DEMANDED. Stop acting like this was your big, bright idea, Mr. “I’m Going to Let You Pay the Mortgage for A DOG While I Go To Live With My Girlfriend Without Telling You”!!).
This is followed by a few minutes of awkward silence with Karen and Rebecca just looking at each other. Karen looks hopeful, like she is waiting for Rebecca to say something. Rebecca, on the other hand, looks at Karen with NO expression on her face at all. She is like a brunette version of an “ice queen” (Aren’t ice queens usually blonde, like that Viking Yolanda from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?” Well, this one is a brunette, and she looks like she might just have ice water running through her veins. By the way, I have nothing against Vikings, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Yolanda. She is BADASS…but I digress.). Karen interviews that Rebecca looked at her “with a cold stare.”
Karen finally breaks the ice and starts the conversation by telling Rebecca that she wanted to meet her because her 13-year-old daughter Karina had to be the one to tell her that she even existed. She lets Rebecca know that Dave never even mentioned Rebecca’s name to her before Karina did. Rebecca just looks at her without saying anything.
Karen then starts a rapid-fire session of questions and answers between her and Rebecca. From this interrogation session, we learn that Rebecca is a 34-year-old Italian-American realtor with 2 kids of her own.
Karen then directly tells Rebecca that she heard Rebecca brought Karina to the doctor without either consulting her directly or having Dave consult her beforehand to clear it with her first. Rebecca coolly responds that this was “no big deal.” Karen interviews and rhetorically asks, “No big deal?!?!” She says hearing Rebecca say this made her angry.
Karen counters and tells Rebecca that she felt like Rebecca overstepped her boundaries by doing this without bothering to consult her beforehand. Rebecca explains that she took Karina to the doctor because Dave asked her to do so because he was unable to bring her, and “my schedule just happened to be free. So, I took her.”
Karen tells Rebecca that this is a big deal to HER “because I’M her Mother. Period!” Rebecca tells Karen that she is not trying to be Karina’s mother. Karen says, “I wouldn’t LET you!”
Karen softens her tone a little bit and tells Rebecca, “It’s all about my DAUGHTER. That is my only concern. It has nothing to do with you personally.” She then tells Rebecca that since Dave seems to think highly of Rebecca, she is going to trust Dave’s opinion and give Rebecca a chance (Why, how MATURE of you, Karen! I like that. Good girl!).
Rebecca seems to mirror Karen’s softening attitude and appears to relax and relent a little bit. She tells Karen that she understands Karen’s position because she is a mother too, and if she were in Karen’s position, she would feel the same way. She explains that she did not know that Dave did not even let Karen know about her or let Karen know about the fact that HE asked her to take Karina to her doctor’s appointment. She said that she did not think she was doing anything wrong and thought Karen was o.k. with it because Dave had cleared it with her (Meanwhile, Dave’s a*s is sitting there looking like he is not the CAUSE of all of this confusion. He looks like he is about to start whistling a damned tune. I wanted to jump through my t.v. and just thump him in the head the way I used to thump my brothers or my male cousins in the head when one of them annoyed me…usually before I ran off after doing it.). Karen interviews that Rebecca has a “quiet” way about her, and she likes the fact that Rebecca was “respectful” to her throughout their conversation.
Once Karen and Rebecca seem to have come to an understanding, ol’ Dave joins the conversation and tells Karen that Rebecca has a daughter that is Karina’s age, and “they get along really well.” He then says that he is glad that all of them were able to get together and talk, and he thinks they can all get along (Sure, NOW they can, but it’s no thanks to YOU, you big WEENIE!!).
Both Karen and Rebecca agree that they are glad that they have now met each other and gotten that out of the way.
Karen ends the conversation by telling them she is having a get-together the next night at her home with a few friends, and she invites them to come over (This is all so ADULT. It’s weird. It’s like real-world adult interaction, NOT “reality world adult interaction.” I’m not used to seeing this on reality television shows. *Shrug* I would feel more comfortable if Karen had thrown a soda in Rebecca’s face and then gotten into a hair-pulling, slapping cat fight as Dave either tried to separate them or ran off. This is how much VH1 reality shows have lowered my expectations. And it’s a sad commentary not only on the WORLD…but also on my television viewing habits. But I am powerless to stop myself from watching – or even blogging about – this crap. *Sigh*).
Drita Shows Off Her Makeup Artist Skills
Drita interviews that she is going to do a “makeup gig” for a fitness magazine photo shoot. She says that she is picking up makeup gigs here and there because her store is not yet open, but she still has to pay the rent for the space. These makeup jobs provide her with the money to help her do this.
As Drita is applying makeup to the client, they chat. The client asks Drita how she got into being a makeup artist. Drita explains that she used to model herself, and she loved the makeup application portion of her modeling shoots. Because of her interest, she decided to become a makeup artist herself.
Drita interviews that the 1st time Lee went to jail, she cried every single night. The 2nd time he went to jail, she got so stressed out and sick that she was no longer able to work at all, much less work as a makeup artist (It sounds to me like Drita had a nervous breakdown, which is understandable considering her situation). She says that if Lee goes to jail for a 3rd time, “There will be NO crying and NO stress. Third strike. He’s OUT!” (and I don’t blame her ONE bit).
The client is very pleased with the job Drita has done with her makeup and lets Drita know it. Hearing this seems to make Drita very happy.
Lingerie Shopping with “J” for “Jumbo” and “G” for “Gangster”
Love and Big Ang decide to go lingerie shopping together. Love tells Big Ang that she needs to buy some new lingerie because her ex-boyfriend, Fate, is coming in from Las Vegas to visit her. Big Ang interviews that “Love’s old flame is coming back into town,” and she says it with a smile. Love interviews that she left Fate at “the height of the passion in (their) relationship.” She says she basically “ran away” from him years ago, and she has regretted it ever since.
While at the store, Love and Ang try on all kinds of sexy bras, panties and lingerie sets and come out of their dressing rooms to model for one another and provide feedback to each other. Love interviews that she loves lingerie and looking sexy. She says that she is “really excited to see Fate but also a little nervous.” She says that Fate is the ONLY man in her life besides her Father that she has ever respected.
Big Ang and Love compliment each other on their respective ensembles, and somehow their respective bra sizes come up. Big Ang says that she is a “J” cup (I did not even know “J” cups existed), and the J stands for “Jumbo.” Love says that she is a “G” cup (I did not even know “G” cups existed either), and the G stands for “Gangster.”
Love then changes the subject and brings up what seems to be one of her favorite subjects: Carla. She tells Big Ang that she STILL keeps hearing all of these negative things Carla is going all around Staten Island saying about her. Big Ang tells Love that Carla has never brought Love’s name up to HER. She interviews that “all this hearsay is b*llsh*t! Staten Island is not that big, and I have not once heard any of these things Carla is supposedly saying about Love!”
Big Ang then tells Love NOT to go on hearsay. Love interviews that she thinks that Big Ang is being “naïve” about Carla and about the situation because she KNOWS what she keeps hearing, and she KNOWS it is not just coming out of thin air from the different people from whom she is hearing it.
Ozzy Finally Gets A Much-Needed Bath
Karen, Ramona and Karina finally take Karen’s poor dog, Ozzy, to the groomers to get a much-needed bath. Karen interviews that Ozzy has basically been all alone, and no one has been bathing him (Now, that is just gross and makes me even more pissed off at Dave. That poor dog needs more than just food. He also needs some companionship and playtime with a human or two and/or some other animals or two as well. And he needs to be bathed regularly. What the hell is WRONG with Dave??!! What a jacka*s! Poor Ozzy. *Sigh*). Ramona interviews that she is happy that Karen is “taking this dirty dog to the spa!” (Ozzy probably stank to high heaven).
While poor Ozzy is FINALLY getting a much-needed bath, Karen, Ramona and Karina stand around waiting for him and chat. Karina asks Karen how her meeting with her father Dave and his girlfriend, Rebecca, went. Karen says everything went well. She says that Rebecca “is not very talkative.”
Karina then asks, “Do you think she’s pretty?” and puts a big smile on her face (For some reason, that gave me the urge to SMACK her. I would NOT have done that, but I WOULD have had the urge. What the hell is UP with Karina??!! I know she is only 13, but it’s almost like she is getting some perverse type of pleasure over torturing Karen a little bit over Rebecca. I wonder if she is resentful of Karen for some reason. I mean, even at 13, I would have enough sense and loyalty to my own MOTHER to refrain from asking her if she thought my father’s NEW girlfriend was PRETTY!! Even if my father’s new girlfriend looked like Halle Berry, I’d probably say, “I personally think she’s kind of ugly, Mom. I think she’s built kind of funny, and she can’t dress for sh*t. She’s DEFINITELY not as pretty as you. Daddy could do better. Her cooking is nowhere as good as yours either [My Mom would know I was laying it on a little thick with the cooking comment because, unlike me, my Mom HATES to cook, but she would LOVE me for it because she would know exactly that I was saying all of this b*llsh*t out of straight LOYALTY to HER – even if I am LYING my little a*s off.]!” I would tell these lies because I “ride” for my Mom – or my Dad if the situation were reversed – not that I would really have to tell my Dad that, though. He has body dysmorphic disorder IN REVERSE. He THINKS he’s HOT. And he is sooooo NOT, but you CANNOT convince him otherwise. *Shrug*). In response to Karina’s question about whether or not she thinks Rebecca is pretty, Karen simply says, “She’s o.k.”
Karina then says, “She’s really nice and sweet. She’s like TOTALLY DIFFERENT from YOU!!” (O.K. I am now convinced that this little heifer is really a little demon disguised to LOOK like a 13-year-old. Yeah, you adding those braces is a nice touch, but I’m still NOT fooled. You are NOT a regular 13-year-old. You are a DEMON….or at least a BAD SEED. “Get thee BEHIND me, SATAN!!!” I probably should not be so hard on this little girl, but her disrespect and callousness toward Karen is working my last nerve! Karen is STILL her MOTHER – NOT Rebecca.). Karen just looks at her without saying anything. Ramona, on the other hand, looks like she is thinking and feeling the SAME way I am about Karina’s nasty little attitude and insensitive comments. She interviews and says that Karina does not know how ALL women are nice and sweet in the beginning until they reel the man and his child in and then “flip the script” and turn into their REAL selves, which might be totally different from “nice and sweet,” once they are comfortable that they’ve got the man “on lock.” She says, “Yeah, Karina’s saying this now, but once the newness wears off, I have a feeling she might be calling Karen in Staten Island and begging Karen to come and get her!” (She was also probably thinking, “What a little BITCH!! I will not pull this child to the side and tell her to knock it off before I pinch her. I will not pull this child to the side and tell her to knock it off before I pinch her. I will not….”).
Karina then continues rhapsodizing about Rebecca and then begins to rhapsodize about Rebecca and Dave’s wonderful “love story for the AGES.” She says that Dave and Rebecca are buying a huge house together and talking about having their own kids. She lovingly throws in, “I’m even getting my own room there.” (Well, good, you little cow. Stay there…..FOREVER!!! I guess there was a reason God decided I should not have children. *Sigh*). Karen looks a bit taken aback by this. Ramona, on the other hand, looks SERIOUSLY pissed off. In fact, she is so irritated that she immediately walks out of the room at this point (probably to prevent her hand from snatching Karina by the hair and pulling her into another room so she could give her a GOOD “talking to”!).
Karina asks Karen if she would be angry if Dave had more kids. Karen says, “No. I’m more concerned about how YOU would feel if that happened.” (Take note, Karina! Your mother is showing love and concern for you and sensitivity toward you feelings. Pay serious attention to the words “love,” “concern” and “sensitivity” and say them over and over and over until you GET it.). Karina’s tone softens, and she gets a bit teary-eyed. She says that she feels that her Dad might start to pay more attention to a new child or new children that he has with Rebecca and pay much less attention to her (I should feel sorry for Karina. But I DON’T. Call me a horrible person, but this little girl needs to be DRAGGED kicking and screaming back to Staten Island to live with Karen so that she can learn to love, respect and appreciate her Mother again. I’m o.k. with Karen, but I think that, instead of being concerned with other things, she needs to make Karina and her relationship with Karina a priority. I don’t care that Karina told Karen she does not “want” to move to Staten Island. Where I come from, a CHILD has no “wants.” It is the PARENT who decides. Dave can try to fight Karen, but he is an ex-con. Karen is not. I have a feeling a Judge might rule in her favor and allow Karen to take Karina to Staten Island as long as she arranges for regular visitation between Karina and Dave).
Karen immediately starts to cry and rushes over to Karina to put her arms around her and provide her with words of comfort. She tells Karina that Dave having a child would in NO way affect the love he has in his heart for Karina. She says, “Your father LOVES you. I can’t apologize to you ENOUGH for the mistakes that your father and I have made that have affected you.” Karen tells Karina that she wants Karina to come back to visit her more in New York so they can discuss things more in-depth. Karina agrees.
Poor Ozzy finally emerges from his bath and pampering as clean as a whistle. Karen interviews that, after his bath, Ozzy even looks a little slimmer with all of the dirt washed off of him (Poor Ozzy…*Sigh*).
The Biggest Damned Leprechaun I Have Ever Seen
Love is shown walking into a restaurant to meet up with her ex-boyfriend, Fate, who is visiting from his home in Las Vegas. She interviews that she and Fate have not seen each other in 7 years. She says he is the ONLY guy she ever felt that was “the one that got away.” He is also the ONLY guy she ever regretted leaving, unlike all of the other men she has left.
Love is then shown sitting at a table alone waiting for Fate to arrive. She interviews that she is super nervous, and she just does not want to “humiliate” herself in front of him.
Finally, Fate comes strolling in, and I find it really hard to focus on him because I am totally distracted by his bizarre outfit. He is wearing an ensemble that consists of brightly-colored suspenders, a bowtie and some type of colorfully-studded bowler hat. With the exception of the majority of is outfit being BLACK (with dots of BRIGHT color), as opposed to GREEN, he is basically dressed like the leprechaun on the box of “Lucky Charms.” He also looks like he might be tall and big. So, he looks like the biggest damned leprechaun I have EVER seen. I honestly would not be surprised if he told Love she was “magically delicious” (but in the voice of “The Jolly Green Giant,” not the voice of the leprechaun on the “Lucky Charms” box).
Once I am finally able to take my eyes off of Fate’s horrific “pimp-tastic” ensemble, I notice that both he and Love seem very happy to see each other. They greet each other with a big hug and a warm kiss. Love interviews that Fate “is so big and strong that I feel like I’m hugging King Kong. He makes me feel like a little girl when I’m in his arms.” (That’s cute. I have a thing for big men myself. Don’t ask me why. I’m only 5 feet tall. Damned near everybody is bigger than me, but for some strange reason, I’ve dated quite a few men that were all over 6’2. I guess tall and big is my preference or “type.” Oddly enough, however, the man I consider to be the “LOVE of my LIFE” was only 5’9. Go figure. *Shrug*). She further interviews that Fate “looks SOOO good.” (No he doesn’t. He doesn’t look BAD, but he doesn’t look “SOOO good” either. He’s o.k. He seems very nice and very “into” Love. So, that’s all that matters.).
Somehow, Fate sits down and ends up making reference to the fact that he and Love once wrecked a Las Vegas hotel room. Love interviews that she and Fate wrecked a Las Vegas hotel room having mad, passionate sex (T.M.I.). She says they broke lamps and other things for some strange reason.
Fate tells Love that he is “leery” of her because she ran away from him and ended their relationship. Love tells him that he is “the ONLY man I ever regretted leaving.” She also tells him that he is “the ONLY man” to whom she would commit right now. He just looks at her as if he is trying to decide whether or not he should believe her. Love interviews and says that she was too young and hot-headed when she got together with Fate. She says that, at the time they met, he had an ex-girlfriend who was pregnant for him. She says that, even though the pregnancy happened before her and even though his relationship with the pregnant ex-girlfriend was over by the time she and Fate got together, she just “could not handle it.” She says that she ran away from him and the situation, “but the TRUTH is that I wanted him to CHASE me….and he DIDN’T.” (Been there, done that with the love of my life too, Love. I GET it. Sometimes, we allow our intimacy and commitment issues make us play so hard to get…that we don’t get “GOT”! It looks like that’s what happened with Love and Fate). She says that Fate “is the ONLY person I ever BEHAVED for and really cared about.” Then she starts to cry (Poor Love. Well, Girl, he’s sitting in front of you right now. Fight for your man if you really want him back. You better do it before he settles down and MARRIES someone else, though, because once he is MARRIED, he is OFF the table for you! Don’t be stupid.).
Fate tells Love that he “admits” that he loves her, but she has to “act right.” Love tells him that he is the ONLY person that ever MADE her “act right.” (Aww…I’m wishing these 2 lovebirds the very best).
Karen’s Arizona House Party
Karen is having a party at her Arizona home that includes Ramona and some of her buddies from Arizona. It looks like a fun time. Some of Karen’s girlfriends are even dancing seductively on tables while Karen and Ramona laugh and shake their heads. Karen interviews that she “needs” to have FUN right now (I agree. She’s had to deal with stressful situations ever since she landed in Arizona).
At a certain point, Dave and Rebecca walk into the party and greet everyone. Karen and Ramona greet both Dave and Rebecca very nicely. Ramona, however, interviews that she is not really “ecstatic about Becky Puttana, but I’ll give her a chance. I have to have a talk with her myself before I decide whether or not I am going to really give her a chance, though.” She then goes on to say that Rebecca looks like “a CONSTIPATED lizard.”
At some point during the festivities, Ramona manages to pull Dave off to the side alone so she can chat with him. She interviews that she wants to see “where Dave’s head is at.” Karen interviews that she is thinking, “Please, Ramona! Behave yourself!”
Ramona bluntly asks Dave if he is happy with Rebecca. He says he is. Karen interviews and says, “Poor Dave. I have NO idea WHAT Ramona is telling him!”
Ramona then asks Dave if he was hoping that he and Karen would get back together when he took up with Rebecca. Dave is honest, and he tells Ramona that he WAS. He says that he was “on the fence” because he wanted Karen to take him back, but he then realized that they were “not MEANT for each other.” (I am a little surprised to hear him say this on camera. It’s not that I did not think that he had love for Karen. I think that he always will have love for her because they share a daughter together; they have been through a lot together; and Karen was very loyal and good to him in many ways. I just felt like he was totally head over heels in love with Rebecca and not even giving Karen a 2nd thought from the minute he met Rebecca. His answer indicates that it was a bit more complicated than that. I DO think that now that he has firmly chosen Rebecca, however, he is going to stick with that decision unless something really drastic happens to break them up.).
Ramona, continuing to be super-nosy and “all up in Dave’s Kool-Aid,” bluntly asks Dave, “Are you IN LOVE with Rebecca?” Before he answers, he hesitates (If I were Rebecca watching this on television right now, I’d kick his a*s and make him go back to Karen’s and sleep with Ozzy for a couple of weeks. At this point, his feelings have probably grown stronger for Rebecca, and there would be NO hesitation if he were asked that question TODAY. I still would not like to see that answer he gave about his feelings for me in the past, though. I’m just being honest). When Dave DOES answer, he says, “That’s a strong word.” (What’s a strong word? Love? Yes, it is, but answering should be pretty simple. You either DO or you DON’T. And you are either IN love or NOT in love. Which is it?). Finally, he admits, “Yeah…I love her. It ain’t about HER, though. It’s about ME.” (Wow! He sounds SOOO enthusiastic and convincing. NOT. I’m not saying he needs to jump on Karen’s couches screaming about his love for Rebecca a la Tom Cruise, but if I were Rebecca, I’d expect a more forceful answer than that. And what’s with the, “It’s about ME” foolishness? Rebecca, Girl, if you’re reading: Send Dave to spend a couple of weeks with Ozzy….NOW. And don’t even let him pack a bag. He can pick up some clothes at Wal-Mart on his way over there!). Ramona interviews and says, “You’re NOT in LOVE with HER!! You may CARE for her. You may have FEELINGS for her. But you’re NOT in LOVE with her!!” (I agree with Ramona. Dave may be in love with Rebecca NOW, but he did not seem to be totally in love with her at the time this was filmed).
Ramona finally quits harassing Dave, who I think was a very good sport about it. She then walks over to Karen and whispers in her ear, “He’s NOT in love with Becky. She’s just a consolation prize” before she walks off. Karen just looks at Ramona quizzically. Ramona interviews that she is now going to get “Becky Puttana” and pull HER off to the side so she can grill her the same way she has just grilled Dave.
Ramona Tries To Scare “Becky Puttana”
Ramona interviews that she wants “to have some alone time with Becky Puttana.” To that end, she asks Rebecca to follow her outside so they can talk. Rebecca is nice enough to follow her (I don’t know if I would have been that nice).
Once they are outside, Ramona tells Rebecca that she has been wanting to meet her because she “heard some not-so-good things” about her. Rebecca just looks at Ramona with a stone face. Ramona explains that Dave “kept you a secret.”
She then says that, as Karen’s friend, she was also upset to hear that Rebecca just took Karina to the doctor without either consulting Karen directly or having Dave consult Karen beforehand to get her permission. Rebecca again just looks at Ramona with no expression on her face and does not respond.
Ramona continues and says that she would never want to take someone’s child in a vehicle somewhere without their permission because of the possibility of an accident and possible harm coming to the child. She tells Ramona that this is particularly dangerous considering the kind of family Karen comes from (alluding to Karen’s family Mob ties and history). Ramona bluntly tells Rebecca that when it comes to Karina and something bad happening to Karina while she is in Rebecca’s care, Karen’s family “will KILL you.” Rebecca does not even flinch or look fazed….AT ALL (I don’t know if it is because Rebecca has taken a Xanax; if she is in shock; or if she simply does not give a damn WHAT Ramona is telling her. She is a very tough person to read). Ramona interviews that, because Rebecca just listened to Ramona without flipping out or causing a scene or looking scared, “I have respect for her.”
FINALLY, Rebecca speaks. She tells Ramona that Dave told her that it was o.k. for her to take Karina to her doctor’s appointment since he would be unable to do it. She says that, because of this, she assumed Dave had already cleared it with Karen, and it would not be a problem. Rebecca says that she totally understands Karen’s position because she has children herself, and if their father allowed someone that she had never even met to take them somewhere without consulting her first, she would be upset too (Good answer, Rebecca).
Ramona seems impressed with this, and her face softens toward Rebecca. She interviews that she gives Rebecca “props.”
Ramona ends the conversation by thanking Rebecca for taking the time to talk to her, and Rebecca basically says it was no problem.
After Dave and Rebecca leave the party with no incident, Karen and Ramona both agree that Rebecca “has balls of STEEL coming here.” (I agree.). Karen says that she HAS to respect the fact that Rebecca even showed up at her house for the party.
Drita Goes To Boot Camp
Drita interviews that recently seeing the fitness model she made up for a photo shoot made her realize that she needs to get back to working out herself. So, she has enrolled in a Boot Camp workout class. Drita participates in what looks like a really tough class. She interviews that the Boot Camp class instructor is “no f*ckin’ joke!!” She notes that, growing up, she was very athletic because her father, who is a soccer coach, insisted on it. Despite that, she has recently been slacking, which is why she enrolled in this class, but this class is way harder than she anticipated. She interviews, “I want to get in shape and everything, but…” Basically, she says that the instructor is KILLING her.
At a certain point during the class, Big Ang comes strolling in all dressed up and just watches. She interviews that Drita invited her to go shopping after the class. Big Ang watches the class carefully and looks a little shocked before she frowns. She interviews and says, “Ewww…I don’t think I’d like that Boot Camp stuff!” (I don’t think she would either). Despite her distaste for participating in Boot Camp personally, Big Ang begins to offer her support to Drita from the sidelines by screaming, “Go, Drita! Go, Drita! Go!!”
Despite the sideline support from Big Ang, Drita interviews that she wants to MURDER the Boot Camp instructor. Luckily the class finishes before Drita can seriously injure or kill the instructor (I bet that instructor had no idea she was going to get WHACKED if she kept it up).
Drita cools down after the class by talking to Big Ang. Big Ang tells Drita that she recently went lingerie shopping with Love so that Love could get some sexy lingerie to welcome her ex-boyfriend, Fate, to town. Drita smiles at this.
Big Ang, who hardly ever complains, then changes the subject a bit and complains that Love AGAIN discussed all of the rumors she keeps hearing about the nasty things Carla is allegedly going around Staten Island saying about her. She says she is tired of hearing Love complain about this. Drita says that Love has complained about the same thing to her more than once, and she is also tired of hearing about it.
Both Big Ang and Drita say that they think that the animosity Love has toward Carla is escalating, and unless something is done to remedy the situation soon, “it is going to be UGLY.” Drita admits that Carla has a smart mouth. She says that she thinks that, unless something is done soon, Carla will make the mistake of “ripping Love with her WORDS,” and Love will respond by “ripping Carla’s with her FISTS!!” She says that Carla has a smart mouth, but the problem is that Carla, unlike Love, CANNOT physically fight. Big Ang and Drita agree that they will have to talk to Carla and explain the situation to her so they can try and figure out what to do to calm and resolve the situation before it comes down to Love beating Carla to a bloody pulp.
Renee is shown meeting with some people to discuss developing a shoe line called “Mob Candy.”
Ramona goes wedding shopping. She interviews that it is like she is planning a shotgun wedding because she and her boyfriend have so little time to plan and execute everything.
Drita tells Carla that Love has issues with her because she has been hearing that Carla has repeatedly been saying nasty things about her all around Staten Island. Carla says she cannot “take this stuff anymore!!” (and looks supremely irritated).
Love and Drita get pedicures together, and Love tells Drita that one of the things she said Carla has been telling people is that Love cheated on her fiance’. Love raises her voice and asks, “Who the sh*t is SHE to judge ME??!! She’s had more d*cks in her than….” (unfortunately I could neither hear nor read Love’s lips and understand exactly what she said about Carla. I was able to gather, however, that Love basically called Carla a black-pot-calling-kettle-black WHORE.).
Big Ang tells Carla that people keep telling Love that Carla is talking smack about her all over town. Carla responds by raising her voice and asking Ang, “Is she f*cking NUTS this girl??!!” (It looks like they are at some kind of party when this discussion takes place).
See you guys next week!
