Like any true New Orleanian, I believe that there is a song for everything and this week's episode of Mob Wives needs it's very own. Here's the song that was playing in my head the entire time I watched this episode. Feel free to play this in the background as you read.
This week's episode starts off with Ramona getting out of the clink. Ramona has done what she said she would never do (getting involved with a mobster), and whatever dirt he's involved in led to her getting arrested right along with him. The arrest has opened a lot of old wounds from her childhood and the feelings Ramona had when her grandfather was arrested have come to the surface again. Karen is right to encourage Ramona to move forward but none of this will end until she changes who she associates with. It's time to stop dating dudes that are a part of the 'lifestyle'.
We finally get to find out what the hell lead to Ramona and her Boo getting arrested. Surprise, surprise! It's drugs! The DEA ain't nothing to play with and homeboy must be deep in it because the arrest is all over the papers. This dude is into all kinds of shadiness and Ramona has him around her kids enough for their relationship to be considered 'close'. Really, dude?
Back at Renee's, we find out that A.J. is acting like a juvenile delinquent. He got pissed about something and took it upon himself to kick in Renee's bedroom door. Like any parent who has been doing it by themselves for any amount of time, Renee is tired of it and tells Junior it's time for him to straighten his son out. Junior thinks the underlying issue with A.J. is a girl who is sending him through changes. Renee is right when she says that he doesn't need to be with someone who pushes his buttons to the point where he is throwing lamps and kicking in doors. Personally, I think A.J.'s acting out has more to do with the ups and downs he's watching his dad put his mom through, not to mention the fact that his father is facing serious jail time & has had his name & likeness plastered all over the news. That's a lot to deal with as an adult. I couldn't imagine what it's like trying to process something that heavy as a 17 year old kid. Regardless, there is no excuse for this type of behavior. They need to nip this in the bud before A.J. ends up in a cell with his father on one side and his grandfather on the other.
We get to meet Big Ang'scident unharmed but I was really hoping we would get to see Big Ang have a come to Jesus meeting with her son. Based off what we have been told about this kid & the trouble he's been in, he's been coddled enough. Instead, the conversation quickly turns to Big Ang's new boo thang. The new mister has just done 28 years on a murder charge but, according to A.J., that doesn't make him a bad person. Besides, he's about to buy Big Ang a cute little puppy so how bad could be be?
We find Carla attending a fashion show and she's doing the exact thing that Karen has been accusing her of: talking smack about her and Ramona behind their backs. I do agree with Carla when she says that Ramona has gotten involved in situations involving Karen that don't concern her but if Carla has such a problem with her, why is she running her mouth about it to some chick that is neither Karen nor Ramona?
Next week's episode looks interesting. If the previews are any indication, Ramona's gonna end up on everyone's shit list but Karen's. Juicy!
Until next time....
