Bitch! Don’t you know I will cut you!
So, Mob Wives… Yeah, I was really looking forward to the premiere of this show. I had my jokes all ready about Tommy “Two Toes” paying me a visit for talking shit about these bitches. Only to find the first episode to be much ado about well…not much.
The show introduces us to 4 women who have either fathers or husbands doing time for mob related activities and how they are coping with raising families and being loyal in the face of that.
Karen is coming back to Staten Island after a 10 year exile. Her dad, Sammy “the Bull” is pretty much responsible for bringing down John Gotti. So, she wants to be a fame whore – err, write a book about the experience but is at least smart enough to leave her daughter with family in Arizona while she chases fame – I mean – traces her history in Staten Island.
Of course there are going to be some problems with that. Her former circle of friends; Renee, Drita and Carla, are all either related to someone or know someone who was taken down by Karen’s dad. So, Renee is all about not forgiving her and cutting her off. Drita and Carla are more forgiving. They don’t want anyone to judge their kids based on what their husbands have done, so they don’t see any reason to judge Karen for her father’s disloyalty.
That’s the whole premise of the first episode. As for the women, Karen is pretending to be an innocent victim of her dad’s behavior, when in fact she is stealth bitch talking shit behind people’s back – so she is perfect for reality tv.
Renee, well, I’m pretty sure she’s a man with a bad wig. She talks a big game but doesn’t seem to have anything to really back it up.
Haven’t really gotten a read on Carla yet, at least she is smart enough to be divorcing her husband. Then, there is Drita.
I am loving me some Drita. I don’t know if it’s the Albanian connection or what, but she reminds me of Flo from Bad Girls Club, plus bitch is a brawler. I expect to see her flinging some hos across the room in at least one episode this season.
So, join me later for a full recap of the bitches that make the New Jersey Housewives look like Ladies Who Lunch.
