Carla never visited Renee in the hospital after she almost died during her massive, body makeover surgery. Since then, they have been at war. Will they finally be able to come to a truce?
Carla Facciolo and Renee Graziano are still at war, but during the Mob Wives Jan. 15 episode, they finally confront each other about their differences. Drita D’avanzo is still heading for divorce and decides to get all of her assets appraised. But while the rest of the women seem to be moving on, Ramona Rizzo deals with a major blow that lands her behind bars.
Carla and Renee have been fighting since the beginning of season two. Renee is mad that Carla never called her or visited her in the hospital after she nearly died during her massive body makeover. So, Angela Raiola a.k.a “Big Ang” sets up drinks for the girls to hash out their problems.
When Carla and Renee meet up, Renee jumps right in and confronts Carla about why she didn’t visit or call. “I never knew you were that sick,” explains Carla. After some angry words, both women agree to put the past behind them.
Renee later goes over to Carla’s house to have a longer conversation. She reads Carla a letter that she wrote. They again agree that they are cool. But a new situation arises when Ramona’s name is brought up.
“If I was able to squash the problem between Carla and I [without getting physical], I don’t understand why the other girls can’t do the same,” Renee tells the cameras.
But Carla wants nothing to do with Ramona, who has allegedly been talking bad about Carla around Staten Island. “This Ramona girl, I have no desire to be her friend,” Carla admits. “She’s just trouble.” It sounds like a new feud is brewing between Carla and Ramona.
Besides confronting Carla, Renee also puts her ex-husband Junior Pagan on the spot during a dinner date. During the last episode, they decided that they wanted to get back together, but Renee feels that they have a lot of issues to work out before this can happen.
“We didn’t have a successful marriage because you were having affairs,” Renee bluntly tells Junior. “You wanted to have sex with other women.”
Junior apologizes. “Listen, I made mistakes, tons of them,” he confesses. “I did the most damage.” Renee cries: “It’s 22 years I’ve been waiting for this. I’ve been waiting for you to acknowledge that it hurt.”
Renee and Junior agree to move forward and are officially a hot item once again.
Meanwhile, Drita takes more steps to end her marriage to Lee D’avanzo, who cheated on her before going to prison. Drita has a realtor come over to get an estimate on how much her house is worth. She then tells her daughter Aleeya, 11, that she has decided to sell their home.
Drita also gets all of the jewelry that Lee ever gave her appraised by a jeweler. She learns that her engagement ring is worth $106,500.
“In my heart and mind, I’m already divorced,” Drita confides to the cameras. “I put my happiness on hold for a man. I have to move on.”
Ramona and Karen Gravano have drama also going on in their personal lives. Karen gets worried because she hasn’t heard from Ramona in a while, but then Ramona finally calls.
“I was with my boyfriend,” Ramona cries to Karen in a panicked voice. “We pull over and [the cops] ripped my boyfriend out of the car. I’m ready to have a nervous break down. I just got released from jail.” Ramona doesn’t give much more detail about the incident. It sounds like her arrest will be a major highlight of next week’s episode.
During this episode, Big Ang also talks about all of her plastic surgeries. She admits that she’s had her breasts done three times, gotten a tummy tuck, lipo and her lips done. But she’s not finished with going under the knife. She now wants to get a face lift.
While Renee is able to put much of her drama to rest, Carla and Ramona’s stories are just beginning to heat up.
