Mob Wives Recap: The Ladies Have A Rat In The Group Selling False Stories About Alicia DiMichele

January 16, 2014 |By Continue Reading

mob wives

We start this week’s episode Drita calling Big Ang to tell her about a bad dream she had. Drita’s dreams are scary ’cause apparently they all come true! Alicia is at home and her brother stops by and they have an amazing relationship. They’re talking about her sentencing, and Alicia is having a hard time even talking about it. She doesn’t realize that she could possibly be sentenced to prison without say goodbye to her children and she’s terrified. I feel bad for her. I can’t imagine how much stress she’s under. Natalie goes over to Ang’s house to talk about the fight with Renee with her and Drita. Natalie apologizes to Ang and Drita for ruining their trip. She proceeds to tell them how Renee apologized to her and tells them Renee admitted to thinking she was just some girl off the street, so that was why she treated her the way she did. Natalie pretty much doesn’t think Renee’s apology was sincere.

Drita and Ang both say that Renee can’t get over anything, so they don’t think she’ll ever let the Natalie fight go. Ang is having dinner with her family and she is so funny. She’s screaming about the flies in her home, while talking with her son and daughter-in-law about the baby they’re expecting. Ang mentions that she wants a baby with her husband Neil and I think it needs to happen and be filmed — ALL NINE MONTHS. LOL Renee is hanging out with her son AJ and they’re talking about her fighting in Vegas with Natalie. Renee’s son is listening and he looks bored and annoyed that his mom acts more immature than a teenager. She says that she has to tell Natalie that she’s not allowed to work with Mob Candy anymore, and I’m confused. I think when Natalie told Renee, “You can stick your tacky Mob Candy up your a–,” that was her quitting. LOL AJ is such a sweet guy, and his mom should be lucky that he came out the way he did considering his parents are nut jobs.

Drita and Ang are meeting at a cafe and Ang pulls out a tabloid with Alicia inside and it’s a picture of Alicia and Drita in their bathing suits in Vegas. Drita is shocked, and Ang tells her that the article says that Alicia claims to have lied about visiting her son, and instead went to Vegas. Drita thinks that her dream was right, and Ang thinks that Alicia is going to go to jail. None of the ladies believe the story because they know how serious Alicia takes her case. Ang thinks somebody is a rat because the article has too many details that nobody would know unless they were with them. Like AHEM certain Graziano producer perhaps? I think it was planted to get a buzz about the show since three of the ladies with a fan base were fired.

Alicia meets up with Natalie to discuss the article and she is upset. Natalie asks her if anything in there is true, and Alicia denies it. She would be in jail if it were true, and she’s mad that someone is selling stories. Natalie is being a good friend and is ready to stick up for Alicia. Drita is hanging out with her youngest daughter Gizelle and she’s so cute. She has a personality like Drita and Drita wants to take her to an agent. Gizelle says she already has her own money and she empties out her piggy bank. LOL Alicia is meeting with her lawyer and she shows him the article. He explains to her that it could be damaging because it looks bad, and the judge can react negatively. Alicia is scared because her lawyer is confirming what she feared the most.

Ang is at her bar and she sees another article about Alicia, and it’s stating that she is lying about her income. I don’t think being on a TV show and already in the process of sentencing, she would do that. Another thing, who would have that kind of information as to how much she makes on Mob Wives, to be able to feed to the press? Ang is mad that someone is trying to mess with Alicia’s sentence. Eddie (Alicia’s husband) is angry that he’s away and can’t help her. Alicia is beyond angry because all the articles coming out are all lies, and it’s pissing off her judge. Drita is at Renee’s and they are talking about all the Alicia articles and Natalie. Ang calls and tells Renee and Drita that someone is planting stories about Alicia hiding money and while Drita looks shocked, Renee doesn’t. Renee says Alicia doesn’t have any money to hide since she’s a single mom. Ang continues to tell the girls that the judge called her lawyer and says they want Alicia in the courtroom within the end of the week.

The ladies are shocked because that usually means you are going to jail if the judge wants to see you before your actual court date. Alicia is visiting Drita at her house and she tells Drita how stressed she is. Alicia doesn’t like that someone is trying to paint her a certain way just for taking one trip. She’s about to cry and she’s wearing a “hot mess” shirt. (I don’t think she planned that.) Drita asks Alicia if she knows who is doing this, and Alicia says she’s pretty sure she knows who it is. Alicia points out that it’s somebody who clearly knows what’s going on with the Mob Wives and is very close to them.

Ang and Drita are meeting Renee for dinner. They are so shocked about all the articles coming out about Alicia and how the judge is moving up her sentencing. Renee stays quiet and then says that there’s a strong possibility that Alicia can go to jail. She points out like it’s not a big deal that all of the ladies have had people they love go to prison. Ang says that girls there are no joke and Drita points out that Alicia is not a fighter and a nice woman from a good family. While Drita is explaining what a good person Alicia is Renee interrupts and says that she’s guilty of “cooking the books” and Drita doesn’t believe it, because of the kind of girl Alicia is. Drita points out that Alicia’s husband Eddie wasn’t thinking when he put Alicia in that situation because he’s a criminal, and criminals don’t think. Renee then brings up one of Alicia’s tapes in her case, (which are confidential) and says that Alicia is quoted saying, “I know everything my husband does.” And Drita again points out that she would say the same thing too, because that’s how a lot of wives feel, before they find out their husband is a criminal.

Renee says that no woman in the mob lifestyle would ever claiming knowing what their husband does because that’s like saying you’re guilty. Ang tells the girls that they should all go see Alicia before sentencing to show her support. The ladies arrive at Alicia’s and she excuses her boys so she can talk with the ladies in private. They all immediately start talking about the articles and Alicia is telling them that if the judge wanted to, she could sentence Alicia up to five years. Alicia tells the ladies that she knows it’s not just a random reporter writing about her and it’s someone in the Mob Wives circle. Mind you, she’s staring at Renee as she’s saying this all, and Renee looks uncomfortable by the minute. Renee then asks Alicia, who would be feeding the tabloids information, and Alicia says nobody in her world would be doing that because they know the truth, and the truth isn’t what’s in those articles.

Renee tells Alicia not to insinuate anything because it’s going to make a bigger problem. Alicia tells her that the truth will come out and Eddie is going to deal with it when he gets home, which silences Renee. Drita then puts Renee on blast in front of Alicia about Renee telling the girls what’s on Alicia’s tapes. Alicia is shocked that Renee would know that considering it’s confidential. Renee looks terrified when Drita calls her out. Alicia is furious and questioning Renee about who would have access to those tapes besides her, her husband and her attorney. Renee says a few people have them. I call BS. They would’ve already leaked along with those false articles. Renee refuses to tell Alicia who told her, ’cause she’s a noble rat. Alicia doesn’t understand how Renee can say she’s her friend, but at the same time keep protecting someone she knows is trying to hurt Alicia, and gossip about her case. Alicia has Renee scared and you can see it all over her face. Renee looks GUILTY.

Stay tuned, next week the drama continues.

I do think Renee and her sister had something to do with those articles. Alicia is not a huge celebrity and wasn’t at the time to have stories out about her left and right. I think she was set up to create a buzz for the show since her story is pretty much carrying this show. Thoughts on tonight’s episode? Who do you think the “Rat” is? Let’s Discuss!

Renee is such a despicable human being. I feel so sorry for her son AJ for having to witness his mother acting a damn fool all the time; you can tell he’s so sick of her and who could blame him? She’s a repulsive, delusional, drama queen who is too old to keep acting like she does. Why does she think it’s okay for her to keep burdening her son with all her drama like he’s her friend or therapist? She needs to grow up and go back to rehab because there’s something terribly wrong with her.

I have to agree. I feel so bad for him. I have studied psychology & helped abused children. If you discuss things as Renee does like introducing a man she just met then look to your child to discuss things you should not be discussing, it is called “emotional” incest. There was a case of a 15 year old girl whose mother whined about her revolving door of men not liking her & would talk to her child in such a way that drove the girl to beat the woman to death with her bare fists. I know that sounds… Read more »

Hi Trish, I have a family member by marriage that makes over ten grand a month under the table and collects ss disability to boot. The job he does under the table is VERY physically demanding. Yet he receives a DISABILITY check each month. My husband works his butt off while dealing with severe back pain and we pay are taxes. Sorry, your story about your ex got me started on this subject. It just pisses me off what he is doing and getting away with it.

As much as Renee says she doesn’t like snitches, she sure is ok with passing on gossip or evidence from a case, sorry, but she is a snitch and on camera! OMG I like Renee and then she does stuff like this. AJ is smart and he gives Renee good advice. Thank goodness she seeks him out for answers, not sure who else she would listen to. I liked Alicia this season, for a new cast mate she didn’t do anything outrageous to be noticed or force friendships. But if she cooked the books, then she must put things right.… Read more »

If Renee put it out there that she KNOW FOR A FACT that Alicia said stuff on tape She should absolutely tell where she got the info>>

Just think if someone was talking about Junior or Renees father and had info that was confidential and was spreading it on TV no less…. Renneee would go nuts…rightfully so IMO I would want to know who Renee was getting her info from .JS
Renee had no trouble saying stuff that makes Alicia look guilty…Where did it come from?

I don’t know why, but I just don’t think Renee is the rat. For some reason, I think the “Powers That Be” want to make it LOOK like she is the rat, though. Why? I don’t know. Added drama, perhaps? I wouldn’t think Renee’s sister would want this, but she seems to have no problem showing Renee’s relapse and falling apart on camera.

So, who knows?

So after just watching, season 4? Wtf With Alicia in Vegas on TV to begin with? How do you fake out Feds? Does she have a plea? Based on the tapes og Eddie? Seems like it is building up to no love loss. She has thrown her husband under the bus for camera time! To implicate herself?

I think it is Renee’s friend Carla. She would hear things from Renee (as Renee thinks Carla is her friend) and then Carla (not on the show) needs to make a buck (or feel relevant) and sells stories. I think Renee is looking guility because she is realizing that it may be Carla, but the info came from her.

I can’t see Renee being a “rat” as she was it hard by that jack-hole hubby of hers. She is nutty, but I don’t think she would do that.

Yes Alicia is responsible for her own decisions and actions but im sure the shows producers were convincing her that it would be okay to leave. I like big ang and Drita. They seem real when it comes to truths and respect. Renee on the other hand is a disgusting hypocrite. Just last season wasn’t she all up in Carlas sh*t bc she supposedly slept with a married man? Then this season Renee all but said yes to the fact that her bff was creepin with Alicias husband?! Not cool. The only person in her family that has any loyalty… Read more »

It certainly isn’t Renee, Renee takes that whole “no snitching. anti-rat” thing to heart. I think it’s the producers stirring up drama because they have seemed to copy the storylines of RHONJ (dumb, clueless “innocent” wife possibly going to jail; Tabloid-gate; etc). However, I find it VERY interesting that Natalie’s brother is an undercover cop and she admitted that all of her ex’es were snitches. I think it’s time to leave Renee alone, she’s a lot of things, but a snitch ain’t one of them.

Queen Vee

Also, there are EIGHT other co-defendants in Alicia’s case, all of whom Renee probably knows. Just like Alicia has been blabbing her mouth on camera about what she heard on the tapes, I’m sure other people have been too.

rhfan

I agree. I don’t think Renee would intentionally rat.

I do think it is possible Renee shared details of the LV trip with her friend, as anybody would, and those details are what someone shared with the press. As I said above, I woudn’t be surprised if te person feeding the press turns out to be this Carla who had “dinner” with Eddie.

Could be. I’m still trying reserve whether or not Renee would break her loyalty. Because she’s been preaching about that since S1. Loyalty is everything to her. Yet she did say weeks ago during the LV trip she felt betrayed by Alicia because she was hanging with Natalie, which is interesting since Alicia wanted Renee to tell more about Eddie and his mistress and Renee wouldn’t. I feel like everything is coming full circle and I’m enjoying it greatly!

Alicia posted the photos to her instagram account and actually implicated herself. I think the NY Post actually ran with the story, she claimed to be bringing her eldest son to college and she was actually going to Vegas. Very dumb!!

Also if you saw on Twitter some of the things Alicia was retweeting tonight you would be shocked. I know I was. I’m not condoning any of the other girls behaviour but she shouldn’t act so innocent because that really is fake.

Bring back Karen I say, she made this show!!

I agree, Yo Lemon. Alicia outed the photos herself.

However, per Ang and Drita, the article included details of the trip, so I wonder how those got out?

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. 🙂

While I like Alicia on the show, I do agree that she is not as innocent as she acts.

on top of filming crew being around LOL..it could have been anyone.She is pissed because she got caught! That pic of her and Drita was out in public long before season aired! Bloggers that do MobWives had it out, and that was before any of us knew much of her “story”.

rhfan

I see your point about Alicia being watched and I do kind of remember reading something about these pics before.

I just think that since details of the trip were in the story, it was probably someone with ties to the group that leaked it. I lean towards this Carla person because Renee prob shared the trip details with her, as any friend would, not expecting it to go further. This Carla was prob pissed that Alicia was talking about her, so a press leak might be good payback. Just a theory 🙂

If she had nothing to hide, why is she stressing over this?

That is her fault not Renee’s. Other people have info on her or did she forget she was being watched like a hawk by the Feds? I mean c’mon girl- you been waiting on your own sentencing!

I totally agree too.. Leave Rene alone. Drita is acting like a back stabber. Alicia’s walking around with a camera and crew and she want to blame those stories on Rene. I have a problem with drita and big Ang always putting Rene down. OMG ..and those fake gasps. I kind of..sorta have to ask myself is this season real or scripted to bring in viewers. When Rene went after Natalie is was so fake to me ..unlike the season when her and Carla got into it. It makes me wonder …..

I have to say the segment with Alicia and her lawyer was great. He was the first to tell that posting pics can greatly damage a case and that perception is hard to change. His advice should be shared with all the HWs, reallity “stars” and everyone facing charges. I loved this episode. It was great seeing Drita and Ang with their families. Drita’s daughter is a real cutie! I think Alicia may be on the right track with the “rat” being someone in the circle.

Really enjoyed the advice Alicia’s lawyer gave her. He was quite concise in his expert opinion on her legal issues. Usually when these lawyers come on reality tv, you can tell they want their little camera time and can’t really take what they say seriously. This guy actually took strong advantage of his 15-mins, he might get new clientele after being featured tonight.

I totally forgot about Big Ang’s husband though. Heck I even forgot she was married, but liked their scenes. It was a good dose of comedy before all the drama came.

Oh believe me, I understand there’s a difference between having partying pics posted, and pics with your family posted. Either way, I feel when you are involved in a federal hearing, that is a good time to not be so public with anything. Tone it down a notch and be humble. I am all for creating memories, but I also feel you could keep these memories more private. Of course, this is just my personal opinion 🙂

Alicia said the pictures came from her social media and any one else. Alicia is proving to be her own worst enemy. The show is not making people feel sorry for her. Neither is her selling knock off items in her store as the real deal. She just needs to seat down. She isn’t helping her husbands case either,
