Karen Gravano left Mob Wives over contract disputes, but after seeing how dark, fake, and bitchy last season got – especially towards her old friend Renee Graziano, she decided she had to return to show these girls who a real gangster is.
“The show is called ‘Mob Wives‘, not ‘Fake Wives’! And watching those new girls from Philly come and pop all their s— and talk, like, disrespectful to Renee was just a little hard for me to watch,” Karen quipped. “And I figured, I’d show them the realest b—- is back.”
“Last season, lifelong friendships were put to the test as ‘New Blood‘ infiltrated this tight-knit circle, and these relationships remain as complicated and volatile as ever,” shares VH1. “Ever-shifting alliances are a recipe for an explosive mix of unpredictable tension, conflict, and intrigue. This season, emotions run high and Staten Island is rife with gossip, lies, and misunderstandings. In this world, you never know what is around the corner – or when an old family connection may resurface to shake everything up.”
The new “trust no one” season of Mob Wives kicks off Wednesday, December 3 at 9PM ET/PT on VH1. Check out the cast photos and teaser trailers below.
“They say have a Coke and Smile Well A #MOBWIFE says have A Coke A Smile And A F–k You Too MOBWIVES SEASON 5 DECEMBER #Mobwives #MobCandy #TrustNo1 #AllMobbedUp #LoveAndLoyalty,” Reneeannounced along with the charming photo above.
When the ladies of Mob Wives brawl – they mean business! Amid rumors that this season will see a ton of upheaval and friendship shifts, Big Ang reportedly tried to attack Renee Graziano recently!
Big Ang has always gotten along well with everyone, and been the cast peace-keeper, but sources say that while the ladies were filming at Chelsea sports bar Ainsworth, things exploded when the 6-foot-tall Ang charged Renee! “Big Ang went psycho,” a witness reveals. “Renee literally ran out of the place.
No one is quite sure what set Ang off but it was “scary!” describes the source. “She was screaming at (cast member) Karen Gravano and Renee, calling them ‘rats’.” Yes – Karen is back, even though she quit!
Last week Alicia appeared in court to be sentenced for her crimes, for which she pled guilty, and she was relieved to learn she would be given four years probation, plus restitution but no jail time!
“I knew that my husband and his partners were doing something wrong and I helped them,” Alicia admitted to the judge in Brooklyn Federal Court. “This is not who I am and I can’t even describe how embarrassed I am to be standing here today.”
Apparently Renee Graziano is taking over reality TV. All reality TV. She'll be sowing her wild oats as she spreads the love around VH1. But don't worry – she's not leaving her home showMob Wives!
Renee chatted with Wetpaint about expanding her reality TV palate by taking guest runs on Hollywood Exes to hang out with the cast. Not only is she appearing on Hollywood Exes (which just goes to show you don't have to be a Hollywood ex or even live in Hollywood to make the cut), but we're also going to see her on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta…also proving that you don't have to live in Atlanta or have any ties to the hip hop community to be in good with Mona Scott Young.
Former Mob Wives star Karen Gravano isn't having much luck with a law suit she has waged against Rockstar Games asking for $40 million in damages. Yes, you read that correctly. FORTY MILLION DOLLARS!
Just what did the company do that would warrant such a hefty sum? Well, the tough talking author claims that the company has used her as the inspiration for Antonia Bottino, a character in the video game Grand Theft Auto V and she deserves to be compensated.
Alicia DiMichele Garofalo is in whole heaps of trouble after being embroiled in an embezzlement case. And you know, potentially serving time interferes with your ability to appear on Mob Wives, so Alicia quit the show! With her husband already serving ten-years, she awaits sentencing.
Alicia's official song and dance is that she wants to focus on her kids, which is probably a good idea just in case she heads to the slammer. But she also had a rough time on the Mob Wives. Weighing in on Alicia's departure, Renee Graziano and Drita D'avanzo spoke to Radar Online.
"Honestly, I was a little surprised she joined the cast because of her whole court case. The show didn’t bring her any good, so I can see why she’s pulling out now,” Reneeacknowledged.
