What Goes Around
Junior was cheating on Renee with the FEDS! Rumors continue strong that he wore a wire and recorded conversations with Renee’s dad – who he has been close with for like 20 years. A total back stab. Renee = crying…feels like a fool, was every kiss, him moving in, his promises= all lies?
Karen and her mom talk about Renee’s situation and everything we already know Karen went through.
Drita shows up at Renee’s house. It shows her loyalty, they cry and hug. Renee tells her that Junior did ALL of his shady behavior BEFORE he moved in with her. How could he look her in the eye? What about their son together – how could be so fake to his own family?
Karen records the audio for her book “Mob Daughter” – did anyone read this book? Did it do well? Lee was in it, Drita care anymore?
Drita gets a house call from her trainer – they are training for her upcoming boxing match. She is also getting back to modeling, so it doesn’t make sense to mess up her face now. She gets in the ring to practice, gets winded, starts throwing kicks in defense and starts having 2nd thoughts. She tells her trainer she isn’t going to compete that night. Hmmm…she might have been scared and covered it up with not wanting to fight for her kids.
Angie comes to visit Renee. She can’t get over being associated with a RAT. Think about how hard it must be for AJ at school, calling out his dad, damn. Ang tells her she needs to pull it together. Renee feels full circle, b/c she admits she would be mean to people like her, in her current situation – like Karen when she moved back to NY from AZ (remember season 1 – they weren’t friends at first).
Karen visits Renee. They pack up Junior’s stuff, she doesn’t need the memories and claims she is DONE with Junior forever. For the first time, she is over the mob life, she wants to start over, start a new life.
Karen and Carla meet for lunch. Carla says she is happy they aren’t together anymore and it may be the best thing for her. She keeps talking, questioning Junior – then crosses the line, asking Karen if maybe Renee knew about Junior’s plan? OH BOY girl, what were you thinking? Keep your mouth shut – never mind, it makes good TV.
Renee goes to yoga with her friend – good, you try to relax..didn’t last long. Karen told her about Carla’s comments. Renee stands up and says she would NEVER turn on her family and has always had true loyalty.
Carla, Ang and Drita get their nails done. Carla says Renee isn’t talking to her about things she thinks she said – well we heard her say it! Carla thinks Renee is just paranoid – NOPE chick you did talk and create the drama. Ang wants the support for Renee, not the drama. Carla keeps running her mouth – saying Renee is a puppet, people are pulling her strings, and she would turn on her if the situation was reversed.
Joe comes to visit Carla and the kids. Carla decides to care more about her family and less about Renee – it’s family time and she is loving the feeling. They break out the Christmas decorations. After six years, Joe will spend the night Christmas Eve and they will all open presents together.
Renee and AJ got out to eat – Renee states the obvious – Christmas won’t be the same. AJ tells his mom to do what is best for her, stick with her family – stand by her father. But, what is AJ suppose to do?
