C-Wow meets up with Nora to shower her with sympathy and love. Nora comes in sporting the go-to battered wife sunglasses and dramatically whips them off to reveal her scratched-up face which she cleverly slathered in Vaseline for added effect. This whole show brings C-Wow to gentle tears.
Ah, it’s only a flesh wound.
I would feel bad for her, but she did accuse Renee of being repeatedly raped by her own father. I mean, who says that? Even if it’s true, who says that? Especially if it’s true, actually. And why would that need to be used as an insult? Would you have a massive amount of sympathy for a girl who was regularly raped by her own father? What kind of person would use that against you instead of as a way to put their behavior into perspective?
The word “ambushed” is thrown all over the place, which is really starting to make me see Nora as the Teresa Jew-dice of this series. She warns C-Wow that they’re probably after her next. Nora tells us that Renee and Pia are dead to her, which is the complete opposite of what her literally dead father is to her.
Because no one can leave anything alone, Renee meets up with her brother so she can tell him everything Nora said. Because his name isn’t “Joey”, it only leaves him to be named Frankie. Renee breaks down into tears. The prelude to the real deal is that she just wanted Nora to be honest with her about why she’s suddenly decided to start hating her. Um, you were tardy for the Dia de los Papas Muertos party, dear. That is apparently the worst thing anyone can do. Then, she drops the bomb. Instead of using the word “rape”, she said “molested” because saying the former is just too hard to say to her brother.
Frankie doesn’t understand what would drive Nora to say such things, because Renee has been so good to her. “Good to her!? Are you nuts?! She has my couch, I paid her cellphone bill, I got her nails done, her Botox…” WHOA WHOA WHOA, WHAT??? Nora has had Botox done? Where? She has the face of a Bloodhound.
Frankie looks like he’s ready to slip a Louisville Slugger out of his leather jacket and put it to Nora’s head. When he asks if she wants him to “contact” Nora, you can see in her face that she got exactly what she wanted.
Is it just me, or is everyone confused about how Leah’s dad can be a “retired” mob associate? Isn’t the mafia a “blood in, blood out” kinda club?
Leah goes to C-Wow’s to give her a mani and before she can even really get started, C-Wow tells Leah that she met up with Nora. She breaks down into tears while describing Nora’s face. Leah tries to wake C-Wow up to the fact that she’s treading on thin ice by defending Nora and talking shit about Renee and Pia. Leah still upholds the idea that running your mouth without having the chops to back it up is stupid and warrants a severe ass kicking.
