Mob Wives Ep 305 "The Gathering Storm"

Tonight's episode of Mob Wives titled "The Gathering Storm" began with Ramona meeting Karen and Big Ang at a store to shop for clothes. Ramona tells Big Ang and Karen that her daughters Anissa and Melina are having a birthday party together since they're a year and four days a part from each other. Ramona also tells Ang and Karen that she has to call Drita to invite her daughter Aleeya to the party because Anissa and Melina go to school together and they are all good friends. Ramona says this is a hard decision for her to make on whether or not Aleeya should come to her daughters party because of the tension between her and Drita. Ramona thinks that she needs to meet with Drita first to clear the air with their issues before inviting her and Aleeyah to her daughters party.
Back in Florida with Renee in rehab, she has an anger management group session where she tries to figure out why she gets so angry all the time. Renee says that she's angry that she can't trust people. Then things get heated between her and another one of the group members. The group member doesn't understand why people like Renee hold grudges. This gets Renee fired up. Renee said that she's heard this person talk about her behind her back. She explains that she gets really angry when people talk about her behind her back. The therapist gives her a reality check and tells her that she has anger problems. The therapist tries to explain to Renee that its not about the other person but that its about her.
At the Drunken Monkey Ang's husband Neil shows up at the bar after she threw him out of their house. Neil wants to move back home with her but she's not having it. She tells him that she's sick of throwing him out of their house and that when she went to have surgery he left her there.
Karen meets with a friend of Storm to talk about investing in a recording studio for her daughter Karina. She says that she just found out this summer that Karina can sing. She's hoping that by investing in the studio and getting Karina to sing would might make her want to come to New York. When Karen takes Karina and her cousins (who have formed a music group together) to the studio to meet a vocal coach, they try to test out a song that they've wrote together. They sound really good.
When Ramona calls Drita to invite Aleeya to Annissa and Melina's party Drita is shocked that she's even calling her. Ramona and Drita both agree that before Aleeya goes to the birthday party, these two need to have a sit down so that they can hash out their issues so that there's no problems at the party. At the sit down Drita and Ramona go over their issues with each other. Things surprisingly go really well. They talk about what happened at Renee's birthday party last season and they both agree that there were so many rumors going around about each other that things just got really out of hand. They agree to call a truce and do a hand shake on it. Ramona said that even though not all of them get a long right now, it's good that they made peace for the sake of their kids. Ramona jokes that Renee would probably be the one to come back from Florida and f**k them up. Best one liner of the night by Ramona. I love it.
When Drita goes to the gym with Carla she tells her that she and Ramona made up. Carla still doesn't believe that that Ramona's gonna be nice to Drita.
Joe goes to Carla's to tell her that he's seen a divorce attorney and that he wants to file for divorce. Carla doesn't seem that thrilled about it. Joe says that he wants to make a fresh start and put their marriage and him going to jail in the past. Joe lays down the rules of how the divorce is going to go with the papers. Joe says that he considers their marriage a business arrangement.
When Big Ang decides to go work during the daytime shift at the drunken monkey, a fight breaks out. When the fight gets escalated Ang's husband shows up at the right place at the right time to break up the fight. He definitely scored some points with Ang on that one. 
At Ramona's daughters birthday party everyone's there. Who would have thought we'd see Ramona, Karen and Drita all in one room at a party together with their kids with no fighting? This has gotta be some sick sadistic dream that they're all friends. I'm kidding I love that they're all good with each other right now because I do like Drita, Ramona, and Karen equally, so I think this is great news. There's a big difference from how the adults throw a birthday party than from how their kids throw a birthday party. I think Drita said it best, adults throw cake at a party and the kids eat it at a party. I love Drita's one liners. It was nice to see all of the girls getting along and seeing their kids having fun together. 
When Ramona goes to meet with her boyfriend Joe's lawyer to get an update on when his trial is. Joe's lawyer tells Ramona that right now they don't know when his trial is going to be set. He also explains to her that he is labeled as being a part of an organize crime and that the feds will do everything they can to try to make him become a rat. Ramona announces that she's been secretly engaged to Joe since before he got arrested. She's been afraid to wear  it and tell people that she's engaged because she didn't want the feds to come and take it from her thinking that Joe stole it. Joe's lawyer says that she shouldn't have a problem with them getting it because he bought with his own money. Congrats to Ramona for being engaged.
When Renee calls Drita from rehab in Florida to see how everyone's doing in Staten Island, she tells her how rehab is going for her and that she learned that she has an anger problem. Drita doesn't seem that surprised hearing that. You could tell in this scene how far Renee's come from being in rehab and how much progress she's made. We the fans are all very proud of you Renee. You're definitely not hitting any foul balls in there. She has taken this situation and said "this is the 9th inning with bases loaded with 2 outs, so its time to do what AJ told me to do which is to hit a grand slam out of the park".  Can't wait to find out how the rest of this 9th inning turns out this season. Drita also fills Renee in on her relationship with Lee and how they're trying to date each other again.
Drita also fills Renee in on a new friend who's making a name for herself before even getting to Staten Island. Her name is Sandy and already no one on the island is fond of her. I think everyone can agree with Drita when it comes to describing who Sandy is and what her purpose for coming to the island is. Sandy is a massive f**king storm coming to Staten Island. She's like a hurricane. Drita then explains to Renee how her area where she lives is in zone A which means that she has to evacuate. Renee tells Drita to call and check on AJ and see if he's okay during the storm. Renee also explains that her new house where she and AJ moved to is near the water which is why she's so concerned for AJ and everyone else on the island. Drita says that she's staying with her mom during the storm.  Karen is also in zone A where she lives so she has to evacuate as well. 
The ending of this tonight's episode really hit home for everyone who was affected by Hurricane Sandy. We all remember how bad this storm was back in October when this happened, but I think seeing the footage of the storm and the water rising on tonight's show really showed us how bad it was for everyone. Props to Jenn Graziano and VH1 for sharing that with us. When the show ended the mob wives came on the screen to ask everyone to donate to  relief fund to help those who were affected by hurricane Sandy. Click on the link to watch. Mob Wives Help with Hurricane Sandy and do your part in helping with the relief fund. Next week's episode is titled "After the Storm" where the girls go back to their homes after the storm to look at the damage that hurricane Sandy has done to the island as people try to clean up and rebuild. Be sure to watch next Sunday at 10 pm on VH1, you don't want to miss it.
