It's a brand new episode and it seems we are still dealing with the fallout from the fight heard 'round Staten Island. Big Ang is still sticking her nose where it doesn't belong or trying to be Staten Island's personal version of the UN, depending on how you want to look at it. This time she is meeting with Drita for lunch. Not only is she trying to help resolve the situation between Drita and Karen but now she's plotting a way to get Carla and Renee in the same room together. I agree with her statement that this is all a bunch of BS but sometimes you have to know when to leave well enough alone.
Carla and Drita get together for drinks and of course the conversation is all about the beef between Carla and Renee. Renee hasn't spoken with Carla in months due to her not believing that Carla's ex touched her inappropriately (this all went down last season). Carla's favorite game must be Pass the Buck because she has yet to take any kind of responsibility for the situation. She throws it all on Renee and says she's the one with the problem so she's the one that should step to her. Really, dude? Renee has been your friend for YEARS yet you take a guy's (who you dated for a hot minute) word over hers? Even if you don't believe her, the least you could do is acknowledge her feelings. I'm sure she would want the same courtesy extended to her if the shoe were on the other foot.
Renee decides the best way for her to express her feelings to Carla is by writing her a letter. Like a girl with true penitentiary tendencies, Renee sits down with a pack of Newports and a black and white composition notebook to get the job done. Renee is cool until her friend Nikole calls and puts things into perspective for her. She asks a damn good question: Why is Renee reaching out to Carla when it should be the other way around? After all, Renee wasn't the one who did anything to Carla nor is she the reason why there is an issue in the first place. The conversation with Nikole gets Renee fired up again so Carla may have to forget about receiving that letter.
Ramona and Karen are out trolling for men in the club and we get to find out a little bit more about Ramona. We learn that she married an Arab man because she didn't want to end up with a guy involved with the mob. When he decided to start having dealings with the mob, Ramona ended the marriage. She's dating again and loving it.
Big Ang's girls' night has finally arrived and all the ladies are present. Renee wastes no time & gets right to drilling Carla. The ladies hash it out and they come to an agreement. Finally, these two are back to being friends. THIS is how adults should handle things. Thankfully, it took them months to get to this point. Otherwise, we would have had nothing to watch.
Carla and Renee are trying to work on healing their friendship. In spite of Nikole's urges, Renee did finish that letter to Carla and she reads it to her in private. They are finally able to talk about how each of them felt and truly hash things out. Renee doesn't understand why Drita and Karen can't talk things out without throwing punches like they did. Carla points out that things escalated when Ramona got involved. Could it be that Ramona is helping keep the feud between Karen and Drita going?
Until next time!
