This episode of Mob Wives: New Blood kicks off when Renee heads to Philly to visit Alicia at her boutique to see if Alicia will start carrying her line of Mob Candy shoes. You’ve gotta love the design of some of this footwear, it is so Renee.
Alicia loves the shoes and thinks they’re a perfect fit for her store’s aesthetic.
Renee asks Alicia how her husband Eddie is doing in jail, and Alicia jokes that Eddie warned her not to let Renee get her into too much trouble. Renee and Eddie are lifelong friends and she’s as sad as Alicia to see him locked up. Separation has only made Alicia’s devotion to her hubby stronger though and she shows off hr new tattoo of Eddie’s name on her wrist, and explains he got her name too.
Renee’s been sporting some new ink too, so they compare.
Then Alicia gets a little more into her story of why she herself is in trouble with the law. She explains that her family ran a successful trucking company, and she was responsible for doing the books because “If I was doing them, they would be done correctly. Or so I thought.” She, along with eight others, was arrested in embezzlement charges and she plead guilty. “The day the feds came was the worst day of my life,” she tells Renee. “I love my husband but I’m not happy about the situation he put me in.”
Later, she and Drita meet up to compare stories and they both realize their husbands kept them in the dark about their shady dealings. “I had no idea he was leading a double life,” Alicia says.
