Mob Wives Recap: Karen Confronts Ratalie & All Hell Breaks Loose [Episode 7]

Posted on Jan 29 2015 - 9:30am by Norrth Cafe

Mob Wives

YES! The women are all accounted for after the peace cruise, apparently no one was thrown overboard.  The fish sleep alone for yet another night.  Opening scenes include Dritatalking about her successful store and magazine shoot and wanting to shoot a “Lady Boss” calendar. She is visited by Karen who endorses the “old Hollywood meets the Mob Wives” theme Drita planned (think: toy machine guns and a clutch with brass knuckles for a handle. I would never have believed it if I hadn’t seen it). The two women laugh about the old days and being cheated at poker by Karen’s grandma.  Karen wants to keep the good times going since they’ve resolved their differences and puts together a poker night for all, including NatalieD, no on NatalieG.  Given the Vegas scenes, I’m counting on Drita to lose a bundle!

Mob Wives

Ang, meets up with NatG to walk their dogs together. Ang trash talks Renee before telling NatG they worked things out.  Ang then trashe talks Karen while up the stuff on social media.  She reminds NatG that they’re not supposed to attack families. NatG screeches that Karen hacked her mother’s Facebook (winning her the “bullshit” face from Ang) and claims she stole a pic of her as a child.  She then claims that Karen taunted her about being bullied as a kid. NatG also claims that after her mother got upset, she taunted Karen in return, asking what kind of mother she was.  She just won MY “bullshit” face. Ang tells her Karen wants to meet with her. NatG says, in a TH, that she’ll finish the war Karen started. Instead of Ang and Drita taking her to Karen, she’ll send a car and the “bitch’ can come to her. Is there a Darwin award for reality show stars? I think we have a winner. Oh, and does VH1 give bonuses for every f-word tossed out?  This show is beginning to sound like a bad symphony with all of the bleeping.

Mob Wives

Big Ang and Neil are moving into the new house. The exterior still needs work. Ang is expecting the interior to be done.  Too bad.  Nothing is finished and she’s peeved at Neil.  I was on his side last week; he’s on his own, this week. AJ is home and Ang wants him and his family to be able to move in.  She plans to do whatever it takes to give her son a fighting chance.  Godspeed, Ang.  She goes to stay with her sister while Neil finishes the house. Across town, NatG is in the liquor store and pulls London out of her purse long enough to let him hear her wail on and on about the other women. We find out that they live together on the weekends because she’s in Philly during the week while her son is in school.

Mob Wives

Poker night, and Karen has invited other friends in addition to the wives.  She reminisces about her father’s old club.  Everyone seems happy, the food looks good, lots of laughs, andDrita tells us that she should never have been born a woman due to her love for cigars and poker, among other things. Drita invites Ang to be a part of her calendar and they’re joking when Renee brings up “Ratalie” making comments on social media. Ang is upset they’re talking about her friend and shares NatG’s side of the story. It turned out that there was no hacking; NatD provided the picture in question, which came from a yearbook. Ok, HOW long have they all known each other? Renee jokes about whether you can get time for “mother hacking” (HA!).  We find out that the social media fight got so dirty that Karen’s 15-year old (Karena) jumped in to tell NatG to stay out of her relationship with her mother. All agree to a sit down, but Ang is starting to look as if she is alone in defending this woman.  Drita was not happy to hear that Karena was so upset. Drita wants to chew a face.

Mob Wives

The next day, Drita is shooting her calendar and it looks good.  Ang models and rocks her shoot. They talk about the upcoming sit down and both plan to stay out of whatever happens.  They’ll referee. Ang is still not happy that NatG won’t stop attacking families. Karen is ready. She tells us that by the end of the day, Natalie will respect her or fear her. Natalie is screeching that she only says what everyone else is thinking but are afraid to say. She thinks Karen is a wannabe gangster and wants Karen to say everything to her face. For me, NatG is the Brandi Glanville of mob wives. If you’re wondering, that’s not an endorsement. Renee says they either deal with things the way they’re doing it that day, or tie the bitch to a rock and drown her. Does the audience get to vote?  Ang finally feels that Natalie went too far and it’s affecting them all. Drita feels that violence is the answer and that it’s the only way to shut someone up who won’t shut the f—k up… I think Drita just won the VH1 “f—k it” double bonus!

Mob Wives

Everyone is waiting at the harbor. Ang wants NatG off of social media, Renee wants her gone from the circle. NatG finally shows up, wankering on about how she’s there forDrita and Ang’s sake. Renee cracks, in a TH, about NatG’s outfit and wonders if she was supposed to bring cash to tip her. OUCH! Karen rips into her over the deadbeat mother comments. NatG keeps talking until her story about why she did it starts falling apart. Karen starts shaking the table, she’s so pissed by Nat’s spinning. Ang looks a little shocked by NatG’s responses, especially since NatG equates Karen’s attacks against her as being the same as what she’s said about Karen’s family. No one is amused, right now.

Mob Wives

Renee tries talking sense into Natalie telling her that she needs to just learn how to apologize. Natalie proves she has a ten year lock on the Darwin award when, after failing to see that Karen is blacking out – reliving every act of disrespect, tells them women if they can’t handle what she says, come at her. Karen snaps, flips the table, and begins ripping NatG’shair from the roots. The crew is trying to pry her off and have earned their pay doing it. There is blood on Natalie’s face. Karen has scratches. Natalie looks SHOOK!  NatalieGtalks big in her THs, but she has been shaken AND stirred! Drita is angry that Karen has been held back, yelling at the crew to get off of her! She thinks a fight continues until both are finished but I get the feeling she’s getting angry that they keep holding her friend down. Drita looks cagey, like she wants to jump in and fight the crew to keep them off ofKarenKaren is not done and catches up with Natalie in the parking lot… AND…. it continues next week… Sorry. From the previews, it looks BAD!  We find out that NatalieGhas been trashing Big Ang and Drita.  Ohhhhh… I guess we’ll see what happens.

About the Author

I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well.

    Lamest fight ever. Drita was saying something about jumping in, I’m wondering for who?

  • Hair pulling and scratching is a cat fight…puleeeeeeese !!! Drita irks my fucking nerves. Why is she always sooo hyped? Her behavior is super disingenuous to me.

  • Brassy

    It is pretty obvious from that photo they BOTH went for the hair pulling. Natalie talks so much about guns and violence.. I am afraid she does have the guts to shoot one of the ladies. VH1 may need to consider if she is dangerously violent. All the housewife shows are doing the same thing all have become violent.. Maybe it is time for me to find another show for entertainment.

    • Ratalie is really a punk but she’s a drug addict, geeked up on drugs and alcohol most of the time. That’s what gives her the courage.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        How ya doing today Seussie? Happy Thursday! Been a very long week. Can’t wait for it to be over already. More bitter cold & more snow on the way. UGH!

    • Brassy

      Why did Big Ang get so upset? Like owning Drunken Monkey has NO fights?? cmon I was a bartender for 11 years in a local bar.. I’m beginning to think Angie is backing the wrong person her loyalty is questionable right now.Or is she afraid of NatalieG?

      • twifan2

        Big Ang’s comment lost me. :/
        She might as well have said ‘Oh look a penny’! 😀

        • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

          I just busted out laughing! Thanks Twi!

          • twifan2

            😀
            I did think of that after a bit, when I couldn’t figure out what Big Ang was trying to say.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            I don’t understand Ang’s loyalty towards Ratalie. This girl is trash. No class, low-life trash. She’s like a really bad East Coast version of Brandi. LOL! Loved the ‘hooker-wear’ comment. That was hilarious

          • twifan2

            Ok for that comment I had to see what she was talking about! 😀
            I don’t get either. Big Ang ‘see’ something we don’t? Maybe BA feel’s sorry for her? I’m confuddled. o.0

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            The one I really feel sorry for is Ratalie’s kid. That poor little boy! Oh Lawdy, lawd! Does anyone know if this kids Dad is in his life?

          • twifan2

            You know, I haven’t heard anything about her son’s father? :/
            They need to leave their kids out of their messiness! It’s not like they’re like Tre! >(

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Ita. At least most of the kids on MB are grown. But it’s still not a good thing to see your Moms acting a fool & brawling like a ratchet kitty on TV. (Decided to keep that one PG. lol!)

          • twifan2

            I hear you! 😀
            AND was that supposed to be ‘blood’ on Karen’s face? It was too caked on to be-imo. :/

          • Norrth

            It’s hard to watch someone who NEVER seems to feel she’s wrong and just keeps digging her whole. When Renee become the person trying to talk sense into her, something should have caused NatG to reflect on her life, LOL!

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Oh Norrth I sooo agree about that. That alone would make me want to pound on her. (Sorry that’s the old-school NY’er in me! LOL! At least own your chit, ya know?)

            Seriously! How dense are you when Renee’ of all people is desperately trying to talk some sense into you?

            I know it’s hard to admit your wrong sometimes & own that, but come on now! Nat G.is a grown-azz woman, (Even though most of these women don’t act that way.), & she knows darn well that you can’t & you don’t do chit like that & not expect it to come back on you.

      • Norrth

        I also think Big Ang is backing the wrong person. It stuns me that she likes NatalieG.

        I understand why fights are hard for her to watch. A man died outside her bar trying to break up a fight and apparently he was a well liked guy. ;(

        • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

          Yes, that was sad. From what I’ve read he was a really sweet guy.

      • LovelyAmberRose1

        Renee hinted at it. I think BigAng may have indulged in a few Coco Delights w/ Ratalie like Renee did. BigAng, rightfully so, thinks that Natalie will most likely out her like she did Renee. There can be no other reason for her to continue backing an out of control nightmare like Natalie.

  • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

    O/T for a sec: I have to tell you it’s weird enough watching these gals go roaming all over Staten Island & I know every place they go, but seeing Natalie & Ang walking around my old HS stomping grounds under HellGate Bridge in Astoria Park blows my mind. It’s sooooo different now.
    Oh the memories! LOL!

    All these bishes are just talk. They ain’t hardcore gangsta’! They ain’t chit! Brawling like a bunch of pussies (cats) with the hair pulling & scratching. Eff that!
    You’re gonna brawl then truly brawl.
    You pound their faces. Forget all that bish fightin’, face scratchin’, hair-pulling BS! Okay, I’m done, lol!

    As much as I love seeing my roots on TV, I think there is not much else going on other than screaming matches & bish fights ever week.
    Fights, fights & more fights. Hate to tell you but HW’s already cornered the market on bish fights. Been there, done that. BORING! Find something new would ya?
    Think it’s time to change the channel on all this garbage.

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Ugh! Forgot to add the pic I wanted to share.

      • twifan2

        Hi Hi T! 🙂
        How’s it going? Gone?

        • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

          Howdy hey my little muffin! Happy Thursday!
          Yeah. It been done left a long time ago! LOL!
          So tired of all the fighting & screeching from these women & all these shows. Had enough. Need something new.

          • twifan2

            I ‘watch’ only because of Big Ang. 🙂
            I like her & her sense of humor.
            She’s got a big heart. 🙂

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Yeah shes got BIG everything! LOL!
            Love me some Big Ang, but even she has been all gangsta’/mob crazy this season with the fights.
            (My hubby always rips on her when she comes on the TV. He’s like. “What did she do to her face? What did she do to her boobs?” & I get pissy & tell him, “I love my Big Ang. Don’t you be doggin’ my Big Ang!” LMBO!)
            I want to see them have fun. Be silly, laugh & have a good time. I’ve had enough with the brawls & the cat fights. If I wanna see all that crazy again I could take the subway everyday.

    • I’m with you…I’m tired of these grown ass bitches constantly barking and fighting. It’s old and tired like them.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        Doesn’t anyone do anything fun anymore? This is BS. It’s always the backstabbing & talking smack & now the fights. It is old & tired. (& so am I, LOL!)

        • The sad part is I really think the Mob Wives live like that. A life full of drama, hate and fighting is a lifestyle for them.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            True. I believe this is how they live in real life. But it’s all talk. They’re all talk. The only reason they act like this is because they know that security will step in & break it up before it gets too real.

    • Norrth

      I can’t imagine how strange it would be to see them in a place I grew up in. LOL, you might have passed each one of them a half dozen times and never knew who they were.

      • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

        It bugs me out Norrth. I’m always looking to see if I recognize where they are & I usually can.
        (Staten Island is pretty small. My Mom was born there & she grew up there & I still have family there so I know it fairly well. I even moved back there for awhile but left after 6 months. Hated it! LOL!)
        But now that Nat G. is in Astoria? It’s like they are walking in my shoes. That is where I spent my teen years. I know exactly where they are, all the time, as soon as it comes on my TV screen.
        Ha-ha! I’m surprised I haven’t run into them.
        My old HS is actually used quite often for filming on Saturday Night Live skits & various other TV shows. Like Law & Order.
        The “SilverCup” studios are right there in Astoria/Long Island City.
        I used to see them filming alot when I worked in Manhattan. I even saw GreenDay do an impromptu concert on the street once. That was fun. My son was soooo jealous!

  • twifan2

    Thank you so much for your awesome recap, Norrth Cafe! 🙂
    DANG! Just dang! All that weave pulling, the grunting,… :/ Security should have just let them have at it! They both would have tired themselves from holding onto each other’s hair. What was Drita’s addition to the scene?! o.0

    • Norrth

      Drita went off and I think being around all that fighting triggered something in her. I thought she was genuinely upset about Karen being held back by security. Drita is in fight recovery… she’s good as long as no one is fighting around her but once it happens, she’s all in!

  • twifan2

    Is anyone else liking the music soundtracks better at times than the episode?

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Yes! I walk away from the TV constantly. I am so bored with all this fighting too.

      • twifan2

        Now you know why I read Norrth’s recaps. Can’t take the brawling anymore! Kind of seems over done & pointless now.
        Plus, I have the show in the background-listening to the music & some of the dialogue. But mostly for the tunes now. 🙂

        • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

          Same here. I’ve had my fill of drama & bish fights. I want fun & happy. No more drama. There is enough to go around in real life. I don’t need it all over my TV.

          • twifan2

            TY! 🙂
            It’s all too scripted & made for ‘impact’ now. Lost it’s appeal for me. :/
            I go over to British television mostly now. Need me my Sherlock! 😉

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            YES! It is my go to also! Lovin’ my BBC channel. Aside from the obvious shows. 2 of my faves are Sherlock, (of course!) & Graham Norton. Love Graham. He’s so darn cheeky & has some of the best guests! & the ‘Stories from the Red Chair’? That’s just too fab!
            (If you want to skip past Jayden like I do, go straight to the 1:12 mark.)

          • twifan2

            😀 Not Unusual! :’D
            I save those for as long as I can, then do a marathon! 🙂
            I’m into Black Mirror.right now. Waiting for Call The Midwife to start up.

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            I do the same, LOL! I DVR them & binge watch on the weekends. With all this snow & cold, I beginning to run low.
            One of my faves was when Liam Neeson did the Taken speech for this lady’s voicemail. I wish it was me! LOLOLOL!

            Okay I’ll stop now.

          • twifan2

            That Will & J Smith with Alfonso was hilarious!

          • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

            Love Tom. He was my very first… live concert! LOL!
            I saw him at the Westbury Music Fair when I was 13/14. It was awesome!

  • She Stinks!

    NatD is a loser and so thirsty for attention, constantly inserted herself in the drama. And, no one really cares, the viewers or the other girls. Stay in Philly bitch.

    Natalie G whooped Karen down, and I loved it. Karen is all talk, blah blah, blah, then she pulls hair? Yeah, she’s so tough. Natalie G is the entire show and the other girls hate it.

    The show should focus on the younger girls and get rid of that tired old screeching battleaxe Renee Graziano. Her manic yelling and talk about respect is tiresome. She is the most disrespectful piece of garbage, ever, yet continues to call others out. Sit down, hag.

    • Nicolle

      Oh Natalie, shouldn’t you save these typed out rants for your vh1 blog? Wouldn’t want you using up all those brain cells trying to figure out how to navigate a pesky little thing like grammar. One step at a time; you’ll get there one day, little camper!

  • Betty

    Natalie G Is gross. She manages a funeral hime in Philly. WHo cares!!! Her boyfriend is so out of shape and she needs to do more sit-ups! So flabby. Yuck

  • Norrth

    NatG is funny to me, only not in a good way. She REALLY wanted Karen… as she was shaking, walking away, and breathing like she was scared out of her head. NatG wanted no parts of Karen, just like she wanted no parts of her outside the Drunken Monkey. Fighting? Ridiculous,.. as ridiculous as NatG’s constant meaningless threats. I wish all of it would stop. I am seriously more interested in Renee’s struggles with her son and ex than with NatG’s constant yammering.

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Great re-cap Norrth & so true.
      Nat G. reminds me of a yappy little dog. All bark, no bite. You know the ones who will piss all over themselves if you scare them. LMBO!
