Carla got a puppy, he’s also adorable – but I guess that’s the thing about puppies. She named him Elvis – I never pegged her for an Elvis fan, not sure why. She meets up with Drita and Big Ang at the dog park so all three puppies can play together while they discuss the Joe situation. They make jokes about how young Joe’s girlfriend is. They talk about how all guys who get out of prison are just the same. It’s totally the conversation that most of us have with our girlfriends except for the whole “the guys are criminals” part. When Big Ang asks if Carla is sad about splitting from Joe while he was in prison, her answer is NOPE! If he isn’t patient enough to work on their relationship, he simply isn’t worth her time.
So now Karen and Roland Gift – I mean DAVE, go out on a date. I guess they were so busy having sex they didn’t get the chance to actually discuss their daughter and plans for her future. Just when I think that since they are in a public place, I won’t have to have any visual imagery of the two of them being intimate, he sticks his tongue down her throat. OK, they did actually talk before that happened. Dave admits that he had been dating since Karen left. Karen gets jealous because she wanted to be dating but couldn’t find any takers and had to watch Big Ang have her pick of all of the hot guys in the area. Anyway, she threatens David with death if he has brought any of those women to her bed. Dave admits that the sex between he and Karen was nice, but he isn’t really considering moving to New York. THEN he sticks his tongue down Karen’s throat.
Is this what Drita meant by eating her face like a leach? I truly hope not. Because that’s just plain wrong.
Renee is doing a radio interview about everything that has happened with Junior. She explains the cycle of Junior going to prison and coming back to her and how each time she would fall for it thinking she had a prince. Now she sees him as the prince of fucking darkness. She goes on a great tirade about how as a criminal, you know you are going to jail so you do your bid. You don’t take anyone down with you and how she would spit on him.
I spit on your grave!
I love it when these women acknowledge that it’s these guys’ own fault that they are in jail.
Speaking of jail, Drita gets a letter from Lee. He says that he is no longer being moved to Brooklyn. He is actually now being moved to a facility even further away than the current one is. She is devastated on behalf of her kids. She feels like she finally had one good thing to tell Aleeya (that her dad would be closer and she could visit him more often) and now she has to take it away from her. I really feel for her on that.
This is the life we chose?
I think that these women get a lot of flack for having married criminals in the first place – I mean I myself have been known to give them the side eye or it’s verbal equivalent on many an occasion. But, I can feel how painful it is for them to have to disappoint their children. The women accept that their men will most likely serve time and many of them are willing to wait it out and make life as normal as possible for the kids. But, disappointments like this? The kind that come out of nowhere? They have to really hurt.
Anyway, that’s it for this episode. Next week is the finale and we see Drita and Karen sit down to talk. Then, it’s the reunion – hosted by Joy Behar. Then, I think Mob Wives Chicago starts up some time in June, which looks pretty interesting so I hope you guys will join me for recaps of that.
