‘Mob Wives’ Season 5 Reunion Recap: Who Really Is the Rat?

Mob Wives” Season 5 Reunion Part 1 “Trust No One” aired on Wednesday, Mar. 11, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. on VH1. The episode kicks off with the host-actress, Vivica A. Fox, welcoming the viewers to the reunion. Read on to know what happens next.

Vivica immediately proceeds to ask about the real story behind Natalie “Nat G.” Guercio and Karen Gravano’s fight. Turns out, Nat G. is loyal to another “friend,” which affects her relationship with Karen. Her friend’s father-in-law was killed by Karen’s father. Some Wives actually understand Natalie’s sentiments. However, Karen thinks that Nat G. and her friend just make matters worse.

Karen claims that Natalie’s friend does not even know completely her own father-in-law. She insists that it was all for show and messing up with her name. She lashes out at Natalie for spreading hashtag Gotti (#Gotti) on Twitter, campaigning for a person she does not even know.

The talk shifts to the show’s usual peacemaker, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola. Her temper tantrum because of Renee Graziano became a spectacle in the season. Renee was accused of talking trash about Big Ang and her family.

Back to Natalie (when’s this Nat G. issue going to end?), her issues became worse because of rants on social media. Karen and Renee cannot understand why Nat G. has to talk about scandalous stuff publicly. Karen being “a rat” and Renee being a drug addict are announced by Nat G. for the whole world to see. Renee is furious that her son knew about it. Nat G. became known as “the cop-caller.”

After that, Storm and London appear in the reunion. Karen and Storm’s relationship is talked about first. However, the couple lost their temper when Natalie suddenly talked about the slash on London’s face. Natalie helped the police by using social media to search for the suspect and at the same time, called Karen a rat on Twitter.

Natalie’s co-stars start to call her a rat as well because of her rude behavior on social media. Nat G. finally loses it and continues her name-calling to Karen. Everyone starts to argue with each other. Vivica feels hopeless. Thankfully, the men are asked to leave the stage, which helps in calming down the women.

As the reunion progresses, hilarious parts of the season are shown. Even the mad arguments begin to sound funny to the Wives.

Also, the stars notice that Renee and Big Ang’s relationship became better in the fifth season. The two are proud that they never had any physical fights.

Sadly for Karen and Natalie, their controversial fight makes it harder for them to return as friends. Vivica brings it up again, which makes Karen stand up and walk toward Nat G. Thank heavens that Karen is stopped. However, when Renee attempted to talk sense into her, Karen suddenly snaps at her to shut up.

Will Renee take it seriously and involve herself into the fight? Catch the next episode on March 18.
