Pia doesn’t take the bait. She must have failed to read that chapter in the Housewives reality TV show manual. Julie interrupts to let everyone know that she’s a ghost whisperer and talked to Nora’s dad last night. Maybe Julie knows where he’s hiding out. He says he’s really proud of her and that he lives on in her. Nora is crying and I’m waiting for someone to burst into laughter. Instead, Renee notice’s Julie’s sweater. Apparently, there’s a whole lotta borrowing going on. This is Renee’s sweater that she loaned to Nora months ago! GASP! That BITCH! Oh, it’s on now. They blow out a ceremonial candle and Renee just says “I’m out” and gets up and leaves. Damn. That’s cold.
My girl shows up at C-Wow’s and tells her she’s going to meet Pia for dinner. Because they have known each other for years and know all the same people, she thinks it’s good for her to fix it. C-Wow’s not cool with the idea of fixing jackshit with Pia. She goes on and on about it while Leah falls asleep. When C-Wow finally shuts her yap, Leah tells her she needs to “lessen the attention instead of spitting nails at people”. Well said.
Renee and Pia meet up at Applebee’s to discuss the Dave Situation. Renee lays it out that Pia thought she was at the titty bar when she went into the glasses store the other day. Fuck this and fuck that. Pia tells her she doesn’t hear her speaking like a church girl, to which Renee replies “I don’t talk like that”.
She tells Pia that she can’t be associated with someone who dances, because strippers have no class but people who murder for a living do. Pia says she never screwed or dated Dave. She made out with Dave’s friend once, but never did anything with Dave. Renee tells Pia she’s going to have to sit there and listen to her. They go back and forth puffing up their chests with their perceived power and Pia tells us she’s going to throw Renee out the window with her Boy George hat. I like Pia a little more now. Then Renee tells Pia she’s better than her and drops an f-bomb. Pia duly points out that she thought she didn’t talk like that and Pia moves up a few more notches on my list.
I don’t know if it’s the Tori Spelling face or what, but I haven’t liked Renee from the get-go. So then Pia says “you can have all these pre-conno…tion…things in your head, but everyone else treats me with respect and my family loves me.” “Cause they’re paying you!” I sure hope her family isn’t stuffing the singles in her panties. That would be the line-crosser for me. Pia gets up and walks out and Renee gives us her assessment. Guess what?!
Pia meets up with Frankie, daughter of Harry “The Hook”. She tells Frankie that she’s having this fight with Renee. Pia wants everyone else to take her as she is like Frankie does. She rehashes the swanky club scene from episode one when Renee immediately jumps on her about her dad being a rat. Frankie notes that Pia’s dad didn’t do anything to protect her after he turned informant, so that this girl can’t go after her about her dad. Frankie’s dad was ratted out by Pia’s dad, but Frankie and Pia don’t have beef so Pia can’t understand why Renee has such a problem. Good point.
So, now the classy brawl will be discussed between Pia and Leah at a pub. Leah and Pia have known each other for 10 years, but Leah and C-Wow have known each other since they were kids. “Were you two drinking when you met up?”, asks Leah. “No”, replies C-Wow, “I may have had some Bailey’s in my coffee, but…” “Wait, that sounds like a great idea.” I have a feeling that Bailey’s is the Chicago Pinot Grigio.
So, Pia’s decided to let the friendship with C-Wow end. Leah asks if she realizes that Nora is a shit talker. She’s been done with her ever since she told her to take her hands off her at Italian Fest. Pia points out that Nora has a good side and a bad side, but this is not about Norah – it’s about C-Wow. Now, Leah wants Pia, C-Wow, and Norah to get together for dinner. Damn. That’s all these bitches do!
