As if the song wasn't a hit enough with Drita's rap verse on it, the video that she and her friends did for it is even more amazing. Be sure to check out the music video above. Ang would be very proud of Drita for this song.

The final episode of Mob Wives aired tonight and it was really good. There were some happy moments and then there were some sad moments. In the first scene Renee performed her ballroom dance for Karen, Carla, Nicole, AJ and Andrea. Renee has really come a long way since season 1.
Drita calls Marissa and says that she wants to have a sit down with her, Brittany and Karen to get everything out on the table. In this scene Drita goes off on Marissa.
In this scene they kind of broke down the fourth wall and showed a lot of the camera crew in Drita's house when she hangs up on Marissa. Marissa says that she's confused about the whole situation too. When they get off the phone, Marissa tells the producers that phone call wasn't even a conversation.
Over at the sit down between Drita, Brittany, Karen and Marissa things get heated fast. Karen and Marissa don't even get a chance to walk in the room and sit down before Drita goes off on them. Things go left really quickly. They pretty much get into one of the biggest fights ever. It almost reminded me of Karen and Drita's fight on the rooftop in season 1. Remember that one? That was pretty epic. I guess things don't change between these two.
As the girls talk about what they've been through these last six years, they each tell us what their crime is. Karen's crime was giving respect to the wrong people. Renee's crime was falling in love with the lifestyle that was made for men. Carla's crime was being loyal to a fault. Drita's crime was falling and staying in love with a professional bank burglar.

Tonight's episode of Mob Wives was another one dedicated to Big Ang as it began with Carla, Renee and Karen going over to her house with food that they made for her as she's recovering from having part of her lung removed from where the doctors thought she had early stages of lung cancer. As you could tell from this scene, this recovery process was really tough on Ang (noticeably so).
This episode was mainly about the feud between Karen vs. Drita and Brittany which is why it was titled "Drittany". When Brittany meets up with Karen she tells Karen that she wasn't looking to instigate the issues between Karen and Drita and she doesn't want to get in the middle of it. Brittany feels like Renee is an antagonizer and that Carla is a joke.
Drita meets up with Brittany at her cousin's bakery where she works. Drita says that Karen used to get a lot of attention when she was younger because of who her dad was. Brittany tells Drita what she talked to Karen about. Drita assures Brittany that she doesn't have to worry about her talking about Karen to her. Brittany tells Drita that she wants to talk it out with Carla and Renee but Drita doesn't think it will go too well.
Renee continues to dance with her dancing partner Alex as he's getting her ready to perform in front of people. Renee's actually doing really with this new hobby.
Over at Karen's art event Ang, Carla, and Marissa show up to support her. Ang tells the girls that she went for her checkup at her doctors and that he told her that she's officially cancer free. They're all excited for her that she beat cancer. Carla is glad that Brittany didn't get invited because she doesn't think she knows what's going on between Drita and her, but she does want to hear what she has to say about her. Therefore she does want to meet with Brittany.

Tonight's episode of Mob Wives was the first out of three episodes (that are left) that will air since we heard the news of the sudden passing of Big Ang. There are only ten episodes this season. There is also a two part reunion that will be episodes 11 and 12 that Ang taped with the cast a few weeks before she passed away. We've been told that since Ang's passing last week this episode along with the rest of the season will be dedicated to her. There is also going to be a tribute special about Ang scheduled to air later in March after the reunion.
We really aren't gonna touch too much on what the other scenes were about because it was mainly just dedicated to Ang. The show began with Drita showing Gizzelle her printed copy of her upcoming book that she's writing about. She also told Gizzelle that her birthday is coming up. Gizzelle says she wants another puppy for her birthday but Drita doesn't think Lee will go for it. In the next scene AJ sits downs with his mom Renee to go over the tickets he got. This was probably the most hilarious scene with these two of the night. Apparently AJ got a ticket for peeing in public. Renee then wants to know why AJ is never home since he moved back in with her. AJ suggests that Renee get a hobby so that she's not bored without him around.
Brittany tells Karen that Drita spoke to Marissa about the rumors she heard about their men hanging out. Brittany then tells Karen that Drita thinks its Karen spreading the rumors. Karen gets annoyed and goes off about Drita and Lee. Karen says that she's not obsessed with Lee because she knows way too many secrets about the both of them.
It was very weird as a fan and viewer of the show to watch this episode tonight knowing that Ang is no longer with us. This is like something out of the Sopranos or Goodfellas where the God Mother (Big Ang) passes away out of nowhere. Its just not suppose to happen. Then again, this is reality TV and you definitely can't script this. In this scene Neil wants Ang to let him come home after their fight last week. You might not be able to see it by watching these two argue but deep down these two really do love each other. In the end Neil realizes he messed up and should've been there at her appointment last week. I've always loved their relationship.
Ang and Neil go to her pre op appointment to find out more about how the doctors are going to remove the cancer in her lung. The doctor tells Ang that she might need chemo after the surgery while she recovers. You could tell Ang was scared in this scene. This whole scene was sad because she kept saying how she was afraid of dying.
Renee takes AJ's advice and finds a hobby in dancing. Renee says that she loves to dance and used to dance all the time when she was younger. She's actually pretty good at it. Renee could totally do Dancing with the Stars.

Last night's episode of Mob Wives was titled "Exes and Whys". It started with all of the girls at a baseball game. Rene tries to tell Karen that its the national anthem that's playing but Karen thinks its the "Star Spangled banner". Renee tries to tell Karen its the same thing. When Brittany shows up she tells them that shes getting ready to walk in a fashion show for New York's fashion week. When Renee tries to find out if Brittany has cooled down since her fight with Marissa, Brittany thinks everyone is against her. Renee tries to tell Brittany that perhaps the fight was a lesson for her to control her anger. Brittany doesn't think she should've handled the situation any different.
When Ang goes to see a specialist doctor to find out more about the possible cancer she has on her lung she ends up getting more bad news. The doctor thinks that Ang is in the early stages of lung cancer and should have surgery again to have it removed.
When Carla, Karen, and Marissa go out to eat Karen tells them that she met with Brittany. Karen thinks that Drita is using Brittany to tell them how she feels. Marissa says that Drita has been saying that OZ reached out to Lee about her hanging out with Drita. Marissa says that's not true because OZ is on parole and isn't allowed to be around any felons.
When Ang goes to Drita's house, she tells her that she has lung cancer. Drita is upset and feels bad for what Ang is going through. Ang doesn't want to be a burden to Drita or anyone with this news so she just wants to keep it to herself. Ang then tells Drita that she was upset that Neil didn't go with her to the specialist when she found out about lung cancer.
Carla and Renee meet up for drinks. Carla thinks that Drita doesn't like Marissa. So instead of telling her Carla thinks Drita is using Brittany to do the dirty work.
Drita meets up with Marissa for drinks. Drita insists that she likes Marissa and her boyfriend OZ. Marissa tells Drita about the rumor she heard about Lee and OZ and Drita says it didn't happen. Drita thinks Karen's the one who started this rumor.
When Brittany goes to Drita's house, Drita tells her about the rumor that Marissa told her about OZ and Lee. Drita thinks that Karen is obsessed with her and her marriage to Lee which is why she thinks she started this rumor.
After last night's episode aired it was revealed that Ang was in the hospital and not doing too well.
It was later announced from a rep on Ang's twitter (seen above) that Ang lost her battle with cancer in the middle of the night. We had heard that her family and friends as well as some of the cast (along with Jenn Graziano) were by her side earlier in the night. We dedicate this blog post to her. R.I.P BIG ANG

Tonight's episode of Mob Wives was titled "Younger Version of the Same Old BS". Now before we get into this recap I gotta be honest, when I first read that this was the title for the episode I honestly didn't know why they named it this. Turns out later on in the first opening scene of the episode I quickly figured it out. The episode picked up from last week where the OGs organized for Brittany and Marissa to meet up to squash their beef. Needless to say it didn't go too well. Bottom line is Brittany came to fight Marissa and she made it known too. Security and the rest of the cast jump in to break it up. Sides were taken amongst these two. Drita backed up Brittany which pissed Karen off because Brittany would have never calmed down if it wasn't for Drita telling her to.
In the next scene Drita and Ang go back in time to a familiar hangout spot that used to be a strip club but is now a resturaunt. Drita needed to go back to this place because in order to write her book that's about her life, she needs to go back to some old spots and talk about what happened and explain why those spots were so significant in her life.
AJ and Andrea move back in with his mom Renee for a few nights. Renee shows them their new bedroom that she redecorated with Ang's help. Renee tells them the house rules, no alcohol, no parties, do the laundry. AJ says he will do his laundry, but Andrea says no he will their (meaning Renee and hers) laundry.
Ang meets up with Marissa to talk to her about the fight between her and Brittany. Ang tries to explain to her that she doesn't take sides and that she really doesn't like it when anyone fights. Ang is the peacemaker and that's it. However Marissa wants her to be on her side.
Ang goes with Neil to her doctors for a checkup on how she's recovering from having cancer. Although Ang is cancer free, she still has to for monthly tests to make sure she still good. Unfortunately, the doctor tells her that her latest CAT scan shows that she has spots on her lung and she needs to go for a biopsy to make sure its not a tumor. Ang isn't happy. She doesn't want to have surgery again. *Side note* this is the scene where we now know (from reading in the news lately) that Ang's cancer has returned and has spread to her lungs and head. This is probably one of the saddest scenes ever to watch along with the last scene where she tells Renee and Karen the news. I feel like tonight's episode was mainly focused around Ang being sick which is understandable because that's a serious situation. I mean this is reality tv and you can't script real life situations like Ang being sick. The fight with Marissa and Brittany were all little extra scenes that (as Karen stated) aren't that important. This is probably why the episode was called "Younger version of the same Old BS" because that's just what it was. Marissa and Brittany are both young girls fighting over nothing. It was nothing that the OG girls haven't fought about in their past either. There's way more important things to focus on than these two fighting, such as Ang's health.
When Ang tells Renee and Karen about what the doctor told her they're shocked. Karen tells her that they will be there for her and she'll get through it. To find out how you can help Big Ang with her cancer, Renee and her sister Jenn created a shirt for Ang that you can buy over at mobcandystore.com where the proceeds will go to Ang's battle and cancer research.
