Last night was the season finale of Mob Wives Chicago, and we finally had some questions answered and saw at least some of the women having fun together. It’s about time, that’s for sure!
Pia Rizza heads to Renee Fecarotta Russo‘s apartment to discuss her very productive and positive meeting with Nora Schweihs . Pia reveals that Nora ran away as soon as they began to talk, and she is no longer a thought in Pia’s mind. Renee is all “duh.” I know middle schoolers with better vocabulary. Renee shares with Pia her screaming match with Giana’s father. She is worried that when Giana finds out she yelled at her father, it will push her daughter even farther away from her. Renee also talks about her weekend getaway with Dave. While it was fun, she isn’t sure what it actually accomplished to help their relationship. Pia advises her to focus on Giana and put Dave on the back burner.
Last night’s Mob Wives Chicago was a whole mess of drama, but thankfully no one got slapped. That’s a plus, right?
The ladies are doing a breast cancer walk in honor of Leah Disimone‘s mom. Renee Fecarotta Russo and Pia Rizza are first to meet Leah. Nora Schweihs and Christina Scoleri are on their way, and Leah hopes that there won’t be any drama. Nora is willing to put her differences aside to support Leah’s mom. Renee isn’t sure she’ll be able to do the same, but she and Pia say that they’ll walk with the group. Nora thinks it’s weird that Renee and Pia are walking arm in arm, and the two ladies separate from the group to get away from Nora’s voice. It’s really sad that they can’t see that the walk should be about Leah’s mom and not their petty fights.
What can I say about last night’s Mob Wives Chicago? There was a lot of bleeping, that’s for sure! These ladies are constantly saying they want to have civil, non-confrontational discussions, but if a string of cuss words and screaming at the top of of their lungs is civil, I’d hate to see uncivil. Oh wait, that was two weeks ago…Regardless, the entire episode was dramastically entertaining (see what I did there? ;))!
Renee Fecarotta Russo‘s daughter Giana comes over to discuss Giana’s recent trip to visit her father in prison. Renee is concerned about what the pair could have discussed. Giana tells her mother that her parents have too totally different stories about how they acted in the past. Giana doesn’t know who to believe. Her mother tells her that her father was a deadbeat who never made any attempt at a relationship with her, while her father tells her that Renee did everything in her power to keep the two apart, including threatening to call the cops on him. Renee tells Giana that her dad is lying, but her facial expressions seem to tell another story. Renee claims that she may have kept things from her daughter to protect her, but she never lies to him. Giana doesn’t want to hear it, and when Renee accuses her ex of lying about having cancer, Giana can’t even handle the conversation. Renee plans to figure out why her ex is trying to sabotage her relationship with Giana.
So, I had conversation that I don’t get to have everyday. I was granted the opportunity to speak with Mob Wives Chicago’sNora Schweihs, and she is truly a gracious and kind lady. I’d call it an “interview,” but it turned out to be more of a chat. It began by me asking if there was anything in particular she didn’t want to discuss or anything she wanted to make sure we covered. Nora was basically an open book, but she did want to make sure to thank Jennifer Graziano for giving her the opportunity to be on the show. For her, the show was a platform to get the closure with her father’s death she has so desperately been seeking. Nora also spoke with me about her upcoming endeavors and life off camera.
“[Jenn Graziano] turned my life around, and was able to give me the closure that I will hopefully have,” admits Nora. “When I was filming I was going to school…I just got my Masters. That was really stressful as well as filming. [The show] was very real and I’m just looking forward to moving forward and getting closure with my life.”
As for her wine, The German, she hopes it will be a tribute to her father and leave him with a legacy that doesn’t have such a poor connotation. It has about six more months of aging before she will be marketing it to distributors. Created with her friend Desiree, she has been part of each step of the process to ensure it is exactly what she wants. “I want to have The German be not such a negative name. That is my goal with my wine,” Nora reveals.
On last night’s Mob Wives Chicago, Leah organized the ladies to participate in a breast cancer walk in honor of her mother, and Renee’s daughter Giana went to visit her father in the clink…much to the chagrin of her disapproving mother.
Leah Disimone and Christina Scoleri go bead shopping…because that’s a thing. I must backtrack in my snarkiness. Leah wants to a breast cancer walk to honor her mother who was just diagnosed. She wants to make t-shirts for her team, and Christina has volunteered to have a get together where the women can decorate said shirts. Leah reveals that she is going to invite both Pia Rizza and Renee Fecarotta Russo to walk with her. Christina bristles as she has issues with both, but she is happy to hear that Leah is also going to include Nora Schweihs. She’s glad that Leah finally realizes that Nora isn’t as bad as all the other ladies want her to appear.
Nora is crying to the point that her make-up is running so she makes a quick exit. Renee is quoting Forest Gump. Christina can’t believe that none of the women are even slightly siding with Nora. Has she watched any of the episodes?
Pia decides to hash out the party antics with her fifteen-year-old daughter. Pia wants her daughter to hear their crazy family history before she hears it on the mean streets..or at school. Bella is very mature, but she sure didn’t need to hear that her mom punched someone in the face. Just let this poor girl navigate high school sans the drama! Pia is doing an ugly cry, but her daughter is a stellar and mature fixture. Should she get her own show?
Last night’s Mob Wives Chicago was yet another party foul. These women can’t get along to save their lives, although they aren’t nearly as tough as their original counterparts. At all.
Christina Scoleri fancies herself a designer. Watch out, Project Runway! She invites Pia Rizza over to share her new creation. Christina is designing a dress for Renee Fecarotta Russo. Pia relives her altercation with Nora Schweihs while Christina can’t believe all of this drama is happening on the eve of her party. Pia is sick of people disliking her for being a stripper. She reveals to Christina that Nora also used to “dance.” Christina is floored to learn that Nora used strip, she doesn’t think she made much money. While Pia has issues with Renee, she is willing to hang out with her at Christina’s party. Christina isn’t willing to throw Nora under the bus quite yet, because Nora hasn’t done anything to her. Pia cusses up a storm. Should be a great party!
I don’t mean to be a broken record, but could VH1 be any more obvious? Hair-pulling bar fights are now tempered with a “non-violent” episode. How stupid do you think I am, VH1? Well, last night’s Mob Wives Chicago had no violence, but just wait till next week! The women b*tched and moaned about one another, but there was thankfully no slapping or hair tugging. I am at a loss for words.
Nora Schweihs welcomes Pia Rizza in for a glass or three of wine. Nora is reliving Renee Fecarotta Russo‘s attack. Pia is upset that Nora still wants a friendship with Renee. Nora’s account of the pair’s fight is much different from what I watched, but apparently Nora thinks she was the instigator and the stronger fighter of the two. Nora makes the mistake of telling Pia that she’d rather strip than worry about Renee. Pia laughs at the comparison, but she doesn’t call out Nora on her verbal ridiculousness. I mean, after all, Pia is dancing. All the time. On a pole.
