Mob Wives Season 3 Reunion Ep 314

Its the moment we've all been waiting for. After two long weeks from seeing the Mob Wives season 3 finale we were all very excited to watch the reunion. I gotta say, although vh1 changed the time slot (for the second time this season) from 8 pm to 10 pm to 9 pm I honestly think this was the best decision that vh1 made because while the reunion aired it was the number 2 and 3 most trending topic on twitter during the entire hour. Some fans were upset that it wasn't two parts like last season, but others like myself, didn't care because the show was the most talked about on social media tonight. I gotta give it to Dr. Drew (who I'm a fan of personally) for trying to keep the peace amongst the women during the show. Among the topics that were discussed at the reunion were, racism, fathers, uncles, and grandfather (who killed who and who ratted on who), and the million dollar question of them all where's Love? The first topic at hand was the Love situation. Dr. Drew said that "it was decided that Love part ways" from the show and that's why she was not there at the reunion taping. Ramona says that Love was a psychopath which everyone knew about from watching all season. Drita says that Love was semi mental, but she can't judge her for that because as she jokes Drita herself is in recovery from flipping out on people. When Dr. Drew asks Drita if she thought what Love did to Carla during the fight was right she said no.
Carla and Ramona get into it over their uncles and husbands. Ramona also called Carla a cop caller. Ramona said that Carla calls black people "you people". Ramona also said that Carla always calls everyone on the show "these girls". Carla said that's because they all had a problem with her. Renee says that she's good with Carla calling her "one of those girls". Karen said that there was a situation between Carla's uncle and her dad "Sammy the Bull". Carla feels that they all set her up with Love at the party. Drita said that Love told her that she didn't want to go after Carla because she was going to go after her. Big Ang said that the fight made her upset because Carla had blood everywhere on her. Big Ang also jokes that all she wanted was the cake and they never got to that part because the fight broke out. I gotta say out of all the parties that these ladies have, the only ones where they get to eat the cake is when its their kids birthday party. Big Ang says that Love was wrong and Drita said that Love shouldn't have came to the party if she was going to attack Carla. Renee said that Love wasn't wrong with getting in Carla's face but that she can understand the finger thing. Leave it to Big Ang to remind us what was really important at the party...the cake.
When Dr. Drew brought it the issue between Carla and Renee about the butter knife, Carla says that she wasn't going to stab Renee. Big Ang jokes that she more concerned about her china cabinet and her silver ware during that fight at her brunch. Carla said that the story about her sleeping with married came from when she was in her 20s and she dated a guy who she didn't know was 100% married. Renee says that she's glad that Carla's owning up to that story now. 
When Dr. Drew talks to Renee about how she shared her story with us about going to rehab and getting clean he asks her if Junior was responsible for her becoming addicted to pills. Renee says that she's not gonna let Junior be the one who was responsible for her being addicted to pills. Renee said that it was a lot of her having a lot of guilt about things that she's done in her past Carla apologizes to both Renee and AJ for calling her a junkie. They both accept Carla's apology. Drita tells Renee (what we have all known all along) that even though Renee might think that she's not a good mom, she reminds Renee that she is because of how good of a son she has raised AJ into being. Drita's right, AJ is an amazing kid and Renee should be very proud at the young man that he's become. 
When Karen's ex Dave came on the stage he said that he didn't feel that he needed to tell Karen who he was dating. Renee tries to get him to realize that he made a mistake when saying that. In the end, he compromises with Renee and says that at the time, he didn't feel like he needed to tell Karen who he was dating, but looking back he sees that he should've told her because she's his daughter's mom. Dave said that he's never met Karen's guy Storm and he's okay with that because he knows that she wouldn't bring anyone who she didn't feel comfortable around their daughter. The only guy that wasn't present at the reunion was Carla's ex Joe. Everyone shared their opinions about him at the reunion though. Renee said that she didn't like what he did with her on the show. Some of the things that they did not bring up at the reunion (or that they didn't show us) was hurricane Sandy and how they all recovered from it. 
When the show was over everyone took to twitter expressing how they wanted to see a season 4 in the works. It didn't take the show's producer, Jenn Graziano long to announce on twitter that season 4 is coming soon. All the fans really want to see all of the girls come back. We will all be tuning in to see what happens when Renee, Big Ang, Ramona, Drita, Karen, and Carla return for season 4.

Mob Wives Season 3 Finale Ep 313 "Love Hurts"

It has been one crazy season three of Mob Wives. The season began with a bang when Renee and Carla got into a fight at Big Ang's brunch when Carla called her a "junkie. Renee moved into a new home (around the corner from Carla) when she received a threatening letter from her ex husband Junior. A threatening letter from her ex husband Junior didn't keep Renee down for long because to her a new home meant new chapter and fresh start for her and her son AJ. Renee went to rehab for her addiction to pills and ended up coming out on top by completing it and coming home and feeling stronger and better than ever. Along the way Renee rebuilt her relationship with her baby boy AJ (who in the end made the decision to leave the nest to move to Florida). Renee even began to start her new Mob Candy shoe line business with her friend Jiton. This season had so many twists and turns from hurricane Sandy's devastation that had everyone putting their differences aside and coming together as a community to help each other to; Big Ang continued to be the peacemaker this season and always had lots of delicious food to go around between her dinner parties that lead to fights between Carla and the others. Drita opened her make up store across the street from Big Ang's Drunken Monkey. Drita's husband Lee surprisingly comes home early from prison after she and her daughters go to visit him in prison. Who could forget the Lady Boss rims that Drita got on her car. Two of the women met their baby daddy's girlfriends. Carla met Joe's girlfriend Raquel. Karen met her baby's daddy Dave's girlfriend and even invited them to a party that she was having. Karen also reopened her dad Sammy "The Bull's" case. Ramona revealed to us that she's been secretly engaged to her boyfriend Joe who's waiting to get out on bail for a week so that they can get married. We were also introduced to a new girl named Love who had been engaged six times, shot at her ex fiance, stabbed her boyfriend in front of his mother, and poisoned her other boyfriend. We also learned that Love had issues with Carla all season because she dated a guy that Love broke up with and then stole the angel wings logo from her make up store. Tonight's season finale of Mob Wives titled "Love Hurts" was no different. The show began with Karen and Ramona going costume shopping for Drita's 80's theme birthday party. Karen says that Love called her the night before and told her that she should put a leash on her at Drita's birthday party. Karen says that she's gonna talk to Love before the party and tell her that "violence is not the answer". Ramona tells Karen that they don't want to have another birthday party that goes left. Karen jokes that they're gonna get a reputation and be called the party ruinors.
Carla and Joe go out for Pizza where they talk about their divorce proceedings. Carla also fills Joe in on the Love situation about how she claims that Joe's Dad stole Love's angel wings logo from her make-up line. When Carla tells Joe about Drita's birthday party and that Love is going to be there he tells her to go there to have fun and not to get into the girl's catty fights.
Drita calls Lee who's being released from the halfway house after 8 yrs of being in jail, when she's driving and they try to figure out if she's going to give him another chance at their marriage when he gets out of the halfway house. Drita tells Lee that they either get along really well or they don't. Drita says that their main issue is that she always wants him home with their family and he always tempted by the street life. Drita wants to know where his head is at with them getting back together. Drita points out that he makes these promises to her that he'll change and never go back to jail but then he ends up going back to  jail so its hard to believe him that he's a changed man. Lee says that he's ready to change and be a part of their kids lives. In the end Drita agrees to give him another chance.
Ramona goes wedding dress shopping with her gusband (a girl's best guy friend who's gay+husband=gusband) Sammy who is going to walk her down the isle  Ramona tries on two really nice dresses. Personally I liked the first dress (the Barbie B**ch dress) that she tried on, but I did like the back of the second dress.
As Karen and Ramona are getting their hair done for Drita's birthday party, Karen says that she got a text from Love saying that she hit her hand against a wall and broke it because she was getting agitated about seeing Carla at the party. When Karen calls Love to find out whats going on with her hand, Love tells her that she's going to "smash Carla's head to the f**king ground and screw her down like a nail". Ramona says that even though she doesn't like Carla, she doesn't want her to get hurt by Love because she knows what Love can do when she's angry. Karen says that if it gets to a point where Love wants to fight Carla she will be there to make sure that doesn't happen. Ramona says that if someone's gonna fight at the party then they should stay home. Ramona jokes that every birthday that they go to they never end up getting to the cake because there's always a fight that breaks out.
Carla and Big Ang are the first to arrive at Drita's birthday party. Next, Karen and Ramona show up. I love Ramona's 80's hair style look. Drita shows up next, then Renee and her friend Nichole. Everyone can tell that Renee is feeling uncomfortable with being in the same room as Carla, but she reassures them that although she doesn't want to be in the same room with someone who she doesn't care for she's going to stay calm.
Finally, Love shows up and despite breaking her hand everyone thinks she's in a good mood. In case you were confused at who has had beef with each other this season, Drita sums it up perfectly for us. Renee and Carla have beef +Love and Carla have beef = a big cow in the middle of Drita's birthday party. Thank god Drita is keeping track because as the show goes on I kind of got confused with who everyone was fighting with. As it was reported earlier this week on the blog, Love was "Not Allowed" at the Reunion and as we had all suspected, it had something to do with the incident that occurred in tonight's season finale. We also heard that Love got fired from the show after this incident. Fans had been waiting to see this episode to see what lead to Love being fired from the show. Back to the scene at Drita's birthday party. When Big Ang and Drita step outside for a smoke, Ramona tells Love that she's surprised to see her behaving. Love tells Ramona that she's not behaving at the party, she's waiting for Ang to step outside for a minute.
If you have been as big of a Mob Wives fan as I have since season 1, then I think there are a few things that you should take into consideration if you ever decide to party with these girls. If they invite you to their birthday party, be prepared to see a massive melee fight (maybe see some blood too). Don't expect to eat cake at the party because as Ramona pointed out, someone always tries to start something before they get to the cake part. When Karen brings Carla and Love together to talk she makes it a point to stay there with them to make sure nothing goes left. Yea, that didn't go too well. It sure didn't take too long for things to go left either. Love tells Carla that Karen is only there so that she doesn't crack her teeth down her throat.
When Love goes to show Carla something on her phone things go so far left that Love throws the first punch and it's a f**king zoo and security jumps in to break it up. Renee says that it looks like a cluster f**k. Drita says that she shouldn't be shocked that her party ended up this way but that she is. Carla says that everyone's holding her back and she starts to feel like she was set up. Renee says she feels bad for Carla because she's alone by a pack of wolves.
Compared to the fight last season at Renee's birthday party that lasted a total of 32 minutes of the episode, this one only lasted a good 10-15 minutes. A lot of fans want to see the extended unedited version of this fight so that they can see what made Love throw the first punch before letting Carla speak. Perhaps they will show it at the reunion show (they showed the extended fight back in season 1 when Drita and Karen at the rooftop brawl). Ramona tries to help Carla because she sees her bleeding. When Drita and Big Ang come back inside they want to know what happened. Drita is pissed when she finds out that Love started the fight because this was exactly what she had been trying to prevent from happening all season. Drita feels that she should have been there to defend Carla so that she wouldn't get hurt like she did. Drita and Karen both feel that the way that Love went at Carla and threw the first punch before Carla had her chance to speak made it look like Carla was being set up by them. After the fight Ramona sums it up best, how do you top this party, stab a b**ch? Funniest one liner by Ramona of the night. Drita thinks that Love might have waited for her to leave the room to talk to Carla so that she wouldn't get hurt, but Drita says that wasn't the smart thing to do. Big Ang thinks that Love waited until she went outside to smoke to talk to Carla because she's a bully. 
When Karen realizes that security escorted Love out before she could talk to her to find out why she threw the first punch to Carla, she tries to go after her and catches up with her in her car. Karen says that even though she doesn't like Carla, she doesn't think that it was right that Love hit her. 
As if this season didn't have enough twists and turns things get a little more weirder. Just when we thought the friendship between Renee and Carla was over, Renee comes in to help take care of Carla's bloody hand and they try to settle their differences. I gotta give it to Renee on this one. With all the issues that she and Carla had with each other this season, seeing Renee come to Carla's aid shows that no matter what happened in the past she's still going to be there for you if she sees you hurt. This was another great season for Jenn Graziano. Fans can't wait to see what happens at the reunion episode that airs in two weeks on Sunday April 21st on vh1 and they're already asking for a season 4, but that is still to be decided.
