Renee’s spiritual cleaner, Momma Donna shows up to help remove the negative energy in her house. There is some burning of herbs and spraying of holy water and something involving blue balls (hee).
This hat is very important for clearing evil spirits. They can’t stay evil if they are laughing.
AJ and his girlfriend come in at the end. They laugh at the ridiculousness of it and Renee thinks the energy is already feeling lighter. Yay for Renee! Our girl is a survivor if nothing else.
Drita meets up with Big Ang and tells her how the sit down went. She’s proud of herself for staying calm even though she didn’t want to rehash the past and that was all Karen wanted to do. Big Ang is excited because she is throwing a dinner party and is inviting Karen and CousinSuckUp and their kids. Drita is fine with Karen but refuses to even acknowledge CousinSuckUp. And, really? Can you blame her? None of us want to acknowledge that chick’s existence either.
Everyone arrives at a very cool looking steakhouse for Big Ang’s dinner. What I like about this is that the kids are there. It comes back to family again. And, since this is Staten Island and not Jersey, there will be no table flipping. Just a lot of swearing and laughter.
Here’s to a third season of bitch-tasticness!
Renee approaches Drita and Karen about the meeting. They pull her leg a bit and tell her it was awful but then admit that they are cool for now. Renee is so overjoyed that now it can be all about supporting her again. And my god Karina is beautiful. I felt really bad for her when Karen announced that she would be moving Karina to Staten Island full time. I still can’t tell whether or not that was the first time Karina heard that decision or if she knew and just had a moment of showing her sadness. It was so brief that I couldn’t tell. I feel so bad for her because it’s like we can all see the exact moment when her life is going to go off the rails. She has been somewhat protected from her mom’s famewhoring exploits by living so far away while the show is filming. Now, she is going to have to be a first hand witness. It’s not just the fame whoring it’s also the fact that Karen probably still has a good many enemies in that city if you consider how many people her dad killed. Now, Karina has to deal with that plus her mom showing her ass on television plus not having a say in how much of her own life is getting filmed.
Karen and Drita even start to reminisce a bit about their past exploits. What’s awesome is the seething anger that CousinSuckUp can’t seem to hide throughout the conversation. Seriously, she gives BitchFace every single time Drita and Karen interact and it’s kind of awesome. Please Vh1 kick her off the show! She adds nothing and isn’t even remotely likeable. She isn’t even fun to hate. She is just a nonentity. What is interesting is that Carla keeps giving Ramona the evil eye. I really want to know if there is some truth to some of the internet rumors I’ve read regarding Ramona and her friends jumping Carla.
Anyway, the season ends with lots of laughing and dancing, and toasts being given by the kids. It was kind of delightful.
Maybe if I hang on to Karen’s ass a little tighter, they will keep me on the show.
But, then we see previews for the reunion and it looks like Drita and CousinSuckUp are going to really go at it while Joy Behar sits there ineffectually.
So, what did you think Gasmii? How long do you think the truce between Karen and Drita will last? Do you think CousinSuckUp is going to use the reunion as her last bid for staying on the show? What about the evil looks that Carla was giving CousinSuckUp? Do you think there’s anything there? I want to hear it all.
