Mob Wives Chicago – Episode 7 – Waiting To Get Burned

Mob Wives Chicago Recap

“Did Nora just say what I thought she said?” Leah asks at the beginning of this week’s episode of Mob Wives Chicago. In case you forgot (how could you??), Nora yelled to Renee “Your father used to rape you every day!” which isn’t something that comes up in casual conversation, or even in a casual hair-pulling fight. No, that’s some serious psychological warfare right there. Nora doesn’t fight with her fists, she fights with emotional trauma and horrific sexual history. Basically she’s a one-woman Law and Order: SVU. And she also has some choice things to say about Pia, too.

“You’re a disgusting, disgraceful human being,” Pia says. Nora rushes off before Leah can explain how wrong it is to use molestation as a weapon, and Christina attempts to be Nora’s friend through this, but Nora doesn’t want anything do do with anyone, she wants them all to leave her alone. Meanwhile, Renee is going OFF about Nora to Pia, saying “I may be crazy, but I’m not psycho stupid!”

    Watch A Clip Of RapFix Live Featuring Stevie J And Mona Scott Young, Who Promises Love And Hip Hop Is Not Scripted

    Stevie J and Love And Hip Hop producer Mona Scott Young appeared on MTV’s RapFix Live yesterday, and in the clip above, you can watch our favorite part, an old MTV News clip where Stevie drapes himself across Mariah Carey, P. Diddy, and MTV News reporter Tabitha Soren to be a part of their interview. At one point Mariah calls Stevie her big brother and the whole thing is just a little weird, but also amazing. “I like that old footage right there, brought back some great memories,” Stevie told RapFix host Sway before admitting that his good pal P. Diddy is a huge fan of Love And Hip Hop.

    Below, Mona Scott Young discusses the controversial Atlanta season of the show and denies that there’s anything scripted about what you’ve been watching and whether or not the show is exploitative. “I do think that it a valid question,” Mona tells Sway. “I get that a lot but I do think that people see what they want to see…When I hear that the show is fake and the show is scripted, it almost negates their very lives.”

    Baseball Wives Star Anna Benson Files For Divorce From Husband Kris

    Anna Benson Files For Divorce From Kris Benson
    We have some bummer news to report today, feisty Baseball Wives star Anna Benson has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband of thirteen years, Kris Benson. The couple have three children. Anna famously said once that if her husband ever cheated on her, she’d sleep with the entire Mets team (his team at the time). Now that Kris is retired from the majors, it’s too late for that kind of revenge, but Anna does say that Kris cheated with a close family friend and her heart is broken.

    “Kris was my whole life,” she says. “And he left me for someone else and he just abandoned us. I’m scared and I just don’t know what I’m going to do or how I’m going to take care of these kids.”

    “She’s a b—h. I’m a b—h too,” Joseline tells Stevie in this sneak peek from Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta when he asks her straight up if she’s been sending Mimi threatening texts. Joseline also thinks Stevie is jealous of her (but jealous of what, exactly, we aren’t quite sure). The pair face off and it’s pretty heated, but to see where it goes, you’ll have to tune in on Monday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

    So…Are Stevie J And Joseline Engaged?

    Joseline Stevie J Engaged
    We have to admit, we know as much as you guys do…which is that the reports that Love And Hip Hop: Atlanta couple Stevie J and Joseline did get engaged this week, but neither one is officially admitting to it. There’s a bit of evidence on both sides of the rumor, from what we’ve found.

    Here’s why we think the pair IS getting hitched:

    • Neither of them are actually denying the reports. In an interview on Tuesday, Stevie said “I ain’t ready to say nothing,” but he didn’t actually deny the news either.
    • Joseline’s been sporting a new ring on her ring finger. Coincidence? Maybe. Reality show stunt? Possibly. Actual gift from Stevie? That’s the real question. (Peep a slightly NSFW pic of the ring below.)

    Rumors We Love: Jennifer Williams And Maxwell Are Dating

    Is Jennifer Williams Dating Maxwell

    Here’s a story we ran across that, while we can’t verify, we definitely wish were true. After tweeting a photo of herself with the singer Maxwell, it’s been rumored that Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams is actually dating the R and B star. Williams posted the pic above with the caption “Me and @_MAXWELL_ last night! Thank u for the bubbly! Fun times..” The two are clearly friends, and if they are actually together, well, that’s one attractive couple right there.
