Give Them Some Cheese

All those women that make up the cast of Mob Wives are RATS. They are all despicable, low-down, long-tongued, attention-seeking RATS.

I am so proud of the way Reneé has handled herself. I admire her strength. She will find herself a REAL man.
Junior is a PIG. A rat faced PIG.

Renee, I LOVE YOU And I Keep You And Your Family Lifted Before The Lord GOD As I Realize This Television Show Is Real Life For You. I Was So Surprised That Junior Turned On You And Your Family Yet Was So Sneaky About It. I Now Understand His Half *ss Note That He Left You And I Am So Angry With Him For He Should Have Told You What Was Going On. As For Your Son, He Is A Strong Young Man And Remember When He Asked The Question “After All The Years You And His Dad Was Apart, Why Are You Getting Back Together?”. He Must Has Smelt A RAT. Call Me Or Text Me At 618 203 3654 Sometime. I LOVE You And The Show, GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

My heart really breaks for Renee and her son. Nothing is worse than loving someone with all your heart for years and years and getting betrayed. Everytime I see Renee fall apart I cry for her too.

People are raised with physical, sexual, mental, & emotional abuse – yet many overcome & become preductive members of society. It is not neccessary for these women to stay in the “lifestyle” (or to continue to be so damn dramatic!!). Sometimes you make your bed & have to lie in it. In other words, if this is the lifestyle/man you choose, sorry, but you know what’s probably coming & you have to deal with the consequences.

First of all, for these women, or most of them rather, this is a way of life for them since they were born. And they were literally surrounded by the mob growing up so this was their normal. yes many have moved on to other relationships with men not involved, but however, some children of the mob tend to stay with mob affiliated people.

First and foremost, Renee was betrayed by her husband. He came back into her life wooing her, moving back in with her, making her feel like he was wanting to work on their relationship and reconnect with her. Meanwhile all Junior was really doing was gathering information. Can we say used? Can we say she feels at least partially responsible for letting someone in to hurt her father?

Renee’s father and Junior did do bad things, but seriously, was it necessary to involve her and their son? This poor woman now has to deal with a young man on the verge of adulthood with his fathers betrayal of not only his own mother, grandfather, family, but also the mob? good or bad junior still went against the mob and that’s still a big no, no whether you are involved or not.

So now renee has a lot to come to terms with within her own family, herself, people on the street literally, the mob, being on tv etc. It’s apparent that she did love junior, she loved her dad and this blew up in her face.

To say that she is able to leave the house with a smile on is nothing short of miraculous. There are many, many dynamics playing out in her life even as we speak.

The poor woman even has federal authorities prying into her personal life? How would you like that?

Lets give her a break and let her and her son and family heal and hopefully they can manage to learn something and go about thier lives in a good way.

What her father and junior did was wrong and they actually caused her and her family to feel this way and they are being punished. But don’t knock her down, cuz u r knocking her son down as you do it. Doesn’t anyone realize that posting crap abotu his mom and family makes him feel really horrible and confused?

I wish the government would step in and give this family some much needed help. They didn’t cause this mess, other family members did. But unfortunately for renee and her family they are left to clean up. And what a freaking mess!

Hmmmmm…if she doesn’t speak to her ex then it’s only because he’s in jail and not free. I hope she keeps her word.She needs to stop going crazy, looking crazy, acting crazy..how smart is that for her son? Some memories he’s going to have. A loser father and a screaming neurotic mess of a mother!! Pull it together and show the love Italians have and give to others who wish they were!! Mio Dio!!!

How is it that no one has been real about why these men are doing time and in this predicament in the first place?! It seems unreal to me that most of these women have a zealous and fanatic loyalty to men of poor moral conduct and that how else can you expect anything other than what happens to people who CHOOSE to cheat the law and constructs of society- jail time.

I find it rather distasteful really… although I commiserate and love all the characters and their dynamics on the show I am constantly taken aback at the hypocrisy these women participate in. They are constantly in the hypocritical circle of saying they hate the life style and then turning around and glamourizing its supposed perks and thick-as-thieves family-dies-for-family attitude.

What message does this send to impressionable people watching this in real life? Sure you go to jail for 20 years but when you come out you’ve been immortalized this whole time and regardless of how it changed everyones life negatively you did what you had to do cause your a gangster?

Its an ignorant and archaeic way of thinking and I can inly hope that people watching all the drama unfold remember that in the end all if these men are getting put in jail because they made poor moral and irresponsible decisions with reckless disregard for the ripple of many negative consequences that affected/affects their loved ones.

I agree with alot of what you are saying however, I do think that women that are raised in this life as with any life will gravitate to what they know is familiar. Whatever that is, right or wrong, is not for me to judge, but I do think that any impressionable girl or young lady will take what these ladies say to heart and realize that these ladies and the children are the ones doing the suffering. I commend the show and the ladies for talking openly about how this life affects the children and the toll that it takes on these families. I firmly believe that it is the responsibility of the parent left behind to do whatever they can to steer their children away from this life and any life of crime or degradation, but in reality I know that for some people this is the only life they are taught and the pressure to break free can be enormous.

Eleanor hi I am first of going to say I’m sorry for what they r going through. I hope that things will be better for thecausem. I really don’t no what else to say because people r putting these women down for staying in this lifestyle but people don’t know what it’s like living in that life. They think it’s so easy to get but it’s not they need to stop saying what they keep saying cause they don’t know what’s it

Renee, you are my girl, when you went to the chapel and prayed, it was as if you heard me talking to the television. You did the right thing by calling on God for help. He is the only one that can give you the strength you need to endour the life ahead of you. You trusted in a man and he betrayed you. God is not a man that will lie. I pray for your and AJ continued strength. Forgiveness is the key to your freedom. Forgive Drita too because she is really a good person.

I watch the show religiously and was able to guess what this week was gonna be about with junior. It was just too weird of a coincidence that he leaves then Rene’s father gets arrested! I felt terrible for her! Thinking about an episode a while back how she was asking AJ about his grandpa(her father) and how his visit went now it’s just heartbreaking. AJ was getting his relationship back with his grandfather and HIS father just took that away! The one I feel the most for is AJ and I hope that Junior gets what he did! He didn’t just hurt his son by going away for a long time but also had to take his sons’ grandfather with him as well! HORRIBLE! Rene and AJ stay strong! Another thing I wanted to ask does anyone else think what Drita said that Junior made Rene believe he wanted to get back just to set up her father? Idk but Rene is beautiful they are ALL beautiful women and for Rene keep moving on your a much more beautiful and stronger woman than you think!

First off…Ive been to jail on several occasions and my fiance is doing time right now. Its the hardest thing in the world to go through. I think its harder for me when HE’s locked up. So my heart goes out to these women every week. No matter what happens though, I could never see myself setting anyone up. Love is very hard to walk away from though. If Junior TRULY loves Renee…try to fix it. She told him she couldnt do it without him again so…? Her fathers a strong man and he can handle it. AJ needs his father for several more years not just a grandfather.

Did anyone else notice Rene’s nails when she read junior’s letter? She had on purple when she read the letter. She then grabbed a cigarette and had on red nails as her hands shook. Makes me wonder about the realness of Rene’s drama.

You did the right thing by forgiving Junior. You will have peace in your heatt by doing it. I have been praying for you and your family. Renee hold onto Jesus. Pray about everything ok. God wont let you down. There are good things that come out of bad situations Renee. Hold onto your faith ok. Read your Bible and the Lord will comfort you. Put your son, Your dad and husband Junior into the Lords hands and God will take care of them for you. He will do what no one else can do. Just trust him with you and your loved ones.

A rat is a rat is a rat. No Looking back Renee! Move on to a better life with your son. You said it yourself, you will always be your father’s daughter. Men come and go.Great, Junior gave you a wonderful son. The best things sometimes come out of bad situations. But lets see some of that Italian resolve and don’t let this ruin your life. Life is what YOU make it. Take a deep breath, have a good cry, let it out and let it go. Move on. Remember God made you beautiful on the inside and out. AJ and you deserve better!

No! She should move on and make a better life for her and her son. She also should quit always blaming the Feds, she always says “what they do to her” she needs to put the blame where it belongs, with her father and Junior. I they would grow up and quit breaking the law they wouldn’t go to jail!

What?? Junior betrayed not only her but her entire family including his own son, by flipping on her father and setting him up. And went into witness protection, what a ridiculous question to ask, if Renee should makeup with him.
