VH1 Mob Wives Season 2
Gearing up for the Mob Wives season 2 premiere the ladies of Staten Island have been filling us in on their lives and what to expect from the new season. In two new video promos, Renee Graziano and Drita D’avanzo give us the details on how things have changed since last season.

Drita explains she is still wrestling with the idea of divorcing Lee, but it is happening. “I have not spoken to Lee all summer. I still have issues. I have steps to take to finalize the divorce still.”

With her divorce imminent, Drita, a self-described “people person”, not be confused with people beater is nervous about dipping her toes into the dating pool again. I mean, she’s pretty frightening! “I think that dating is going to be really scary now that I’m on Mob Wives, because now no one’s coming to f–king date me,” Drita reveals. “I gotta tell the guy I don’t always get like that,” she says, referring to her TV persona. “I’m not going to come in the house and hit you over the head with a bat and sh%t.”

Drita is also not surprised by the response the show has gotten, because “seriously, really — do you know people like us?” NO and I sometimes kinda maybe wish I did. Ok, maybe not, but it seems exciting in theory. “I do get angry on the show at times. My veins seem to pop out and say, ‘Hello.’ They have their own fans. My veins sign autographs,” she laughs.

As far as friendships outside of the show Drita has kept in contact with some of her co-stars, revealing that Carla Facciolo and her took their kids on vacation this summer and she “loved” it. She has also seen Renee. “I have not seen Karen [Gravano] at all,” she discloses.

Renee, everybody’s favorite out-spoken, fur guzzling, plastic surgeried, mafia princess also talked the new season and why she still relishes the idea of being followed by the cameras.

“Will there be less fighting in season two? I guess I have to plead the fifth,” Renee teases. “I claim to be nonviolent,” she explains. “I never said I didn’t like to fight. F*ck those bitches, let them pull hair, scream yell, punch each other in the face. I got a front row seat.”

Unfortunately for Renee, sometimes violence is a necessity for her job because she is dealing with bitches, hello! As for her friendships off camera, Renee admits, “Even though the girls and I are friends for a very long time, I haven’t seen them over the summer.” I guess she’s been busy getting a butt lift!

“I’m not really hung up on myself like the other girls,” Renee claims (HAHA!).” Those girls got on fast forward, DVD, in the car, on their iPods, skinny bitches in the gym,” she laughs.

In the new season, Renee is looking to find the happiness she has “looooong deserved” and hoping to date again. “I’m not married. I’m single still. This sucks.”

Below is another new cast photo — this one featuring new Wife Ramona Rizzo and Renee’s ex-hubby Junior Pagan! You can also see Renee and Drita’s video promos below!

With the premiere of Mob Wives Season 2 right around the corner — VH1 is unveiling their newest wife, Ramona Rizzo, in a new video introducing her to fans!

In the video, the sassy but pretty Ramona promises the mafia imperative — loyalty — and warns these biatches she doesn’t like stuck up people. “I am a person that will be there to protect their friends,” Ramona asserts. “I’m a person that’s loyal to their friends. If someone around me is getting hurt, then I take on that obligation. Nobody in this life is better than the next, so don’t demonstrate it in front of me because I’m going to have to put you in your place.”

The mother of four, who is good friends with Renee Graziano and Karen Gravano is excited to be part of the upcoming season, but there were definitely some things from last season that ruffled her feathers! “I didn’t like the bullsh*t,” she explains. “I didn’t like the fact that Drita [D'avanzo] thought that she could dismiss Karen’s past with her husband. I didn’t like the fact that Drita felt that she needed to belittle Karen on TV.” Uh oh…

“I don’t want to surround my self with people that everything that come out of their mouth is hogwash,” Ramona warns. “Hogwash, bullsh*t and nonsense doesn’t impress me. It makes me sick. I don’t like to waste my time. My time is too valuable and she’s a waste of my time.”

Ramona is definitely not afraid of a tussle with Drita and she has some choice words for brass knuckles D’avanzo! “Maybe I’m on the show because Drita needs a friggin check,” Ramona clarifies. “I’m not trying to be a bitch. I’m the girl who can back it up with my mouth and back it up with my fist. Anybody that comes in my path or tries to stop me and tries to hurt me, I’m taking it real personal.”

Well, Ramona seems like an uhhh… exciting addition to this cast! You can check out the video of Ramona below!

As for Drita, she is well aware that Ramona is not her biggest fan! “Ramona and I don’t like each other,” Drita reveals. “Ramona is Karen’s friend. She doesn’t like what happened between Karen and I, and sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong.”

In other Mob Wives news, Renee is up to her old plastic surgery antics! This time the over-the-top mafia princess got a butt lift, butt cheek definition as well as a tummy tuck!

According to TMZ, Renee spent $30,000 on the new assets five months ago! Renee will be unveiling her new body in a stripper pole themed spread for Mob Candy magazine! And spread is the operative word because Renee is letting it ALLLLL hang out!

Renee graces the cover of the latest issue of the mag looking very saucy and ready for action and the magazine told TMZ that Renee “shot like a pro.” Maybe she’s back on prisonmatch.com or something… Photos from Renee’s scandalous photoshoot along with her magazine cover is below! It may or may not be NSFW!

Mob Wives Season 2 airs on VH1 Jan. 1 at 8/9c.

An all new photo post today featuring VH1′s Mob Wives!

The entire cast of the VH1 hit show, plus two new cast members, attended the VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul at Hammerstein Ballroom on December 18, 2011 in New York City.

Pictured above from L to R: Renee’s sister/show creator Jennifer Graziano standing next to new cast member Ramona Rizzo, plus Karen Gravano and Renee Graziano.

More photos of the cast below including shots of Carla Facciolo and Drita D’avanzo!

Also, below is a photo of another new castmember, Angela Raiola a.k.a. ‘Big Ang.‘ The Starcasm blog reports “Big Ang” is the niece of Salvatore “Sally Dogs” Lombardi, a deceased captain of the Genovese crime family. Angela is described as a single mom of two raised in Brooklyn. She also likes to jokingly call herself “bad girl” and is best friends with Drita. Find out why they call her “Big Ang” below!

Meanwhile, the HollywoodLife blog is reporting that tension between the cast members is at an all time high! More importantly, there seems to be a division with Karen, Renee and Ramona on one side and Drita, Carla and Big Ang on the other side. In fact, the site caught up with the ladies during the VH1 event.

First, Drita reveals she doesn’t understand why Renee is hanging out with Karen and Ramona. “I think she’s confused,” said Drita who also doesn’t like newbie Ramona as well as continues to dislike Karen. “My mother said if you dont have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all so that’s what I have,” Drita added.

As for Renee, she is puzzled as to why Drita has a problem with her hanging out with Karen. “They must be confused,” said Renee. “They must be confused with their own loyalty. This is my side of the fence. You don’t pick your family.”

Seems like the battle lines have been drawn! Mob Wives season 2 debuts on VH1 on Jan 1st.

MOB WIVES’ JUNIOR PAGAN OUTED AS A FBI INFORMANT!

Renee goes under the knife for major plastic surgery that may have some unexpected consequences, while also contemplating her future with her ex-husband Junior. Drita is considering her options when it comes to leaving her husband Lee — while Carla’s relationship with her estranged husband Joe may take an unexpected twist.

In today’s extremely shocking Mob Wives news, the NY Post is reporting that Renee Graziano’s ex-husband Hector “Junior” Pagan has been wearing a wire for the FBI for the past year.

Even more shocking, Junior, who reportedly flipped for the FBI and became their informant last summer, has now helped put Renee’s father — Bonanno crime family capo Anthony Graziano — back in jail. Anthony, 71, was just recently released from prison after finishing up a long sentence.

The drama began last week after Junior and his former father-in-law were arrested on Staten Island during filming for season 2 of the VH1 show. But late last week, Renee and the other cast members discovered Junior’s secret after a report in the online mob newsletter ganglandnews.com revealed Junior had been secretly taping conversations with Renee’s dad Anthony for the FBI.

Renee’s sister and show creator Jennifer Graziano opened up about the shocking ordeal to the NY Post. “The first inclination is always to say, ‘Shut it down,’ ” a shaken up Jennifer told The Post of the show. “It is a reality show, and I knew this was going to be personal to me going into this,” she said. “But I didn’t know this was going to happen.”

Reports state that Junior, who was facing a long prison term for armed robbery, agreed to wear a wire and record conversations with his ex-father-in-law. Those recordings reportedly caught Renee’s dad Anthony instructing Junior to collect a $150,000 loan shark debt from an unidentified man.

Junior, who has a 17-year-old son with Renee, was reportedly set to have a bigger role on the VH1 show this season. In fact, the NY Post reveals that on the first episode of season 2, set to debut Jan. 1, Junior can be seen pacing outside a federal courthouse in Brooklyn, telling Renee over the phone that he had been offered a deal by prosecutors on an earlier arrest.

Renee’s sister Jennifer, however, makes it clear the show must go on as they have only filmed seven out of the 12 episodes scheduled for season 2.“We’re making a reality show, and this is the reality of what’s going on,” said Jennifer.

As for how Renee is taking the news, Jennifer states: “Renee is an open book and lets people into her life because she wants people to understand what she’s going through.” Renee has also been quoting bible verses on her Twitter page as she tweeted over the weekend, “Evn whn I hve troubles all around me U, GOD will keep me alive! Whn my enemies r angry U, GOD will reach dwn n sve me w ur pwer. Psalm 138:7.”

When it comes to her father, Jennifer says, “He spoke to my mother and he just said he wished he could have had Thanksgiving with his family. He’s [locked up] and he’s going to deal with it.”

Pretty shocking news indeed. Oddly enough, Renee and her cast members have always made such a big deal about their dislike for “rats.” In fact, Renee did not want to rekindle a friendship with costar Karen Gravano last season due to the fact that her father Sammy “The Bull” Gravano also became an informant for the FBI.

So will Renee, who has admittedly had a hard time letting go of her ex, continue to stand by him? There have been reports that the two had in fact reconciled and were dating again. We will have to wait and see on the upcoming season. But safe to say season 2 will be GOOOD.

Below is a picture of Renee with her son AJ, her sister Jennifer and her son, alongside her ex-husband Junior. Also below is a pic of Renee’s parents.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS NEWS? ARE YOU SHOCKED THAT JUNIOR BECAME A FBI INFORMANT? DO YOU THINK RENEE WILL CONTINUE TO STAND BY HIM?


Mob Wives is baaaack! Vh1 just released the poster and teaser clip for Season 2 and all I can say is YES! Oh sweet glorious television Gods — Thank you! I love these bleepin ladies!

As we recently reported all four of the ladies are returning and the drama will be as crazy as ever! Especially with the introduction of a new mafia princess!

In the off season the hell raisers in heels of Staten Island have been busy, busy little bees. Renee Graziano has been getting nipped, tucked and toxed. Oh and her father Anthony Graziano has been sent back to prison on extortion charges as reported by the Staten Island Live News.

She’s also rekindled things with Junior (aka Hector Pagan Jr), recently arraigned on allegations that he and a crew robbed a card game run by the Bonanno crime family. A photo of Renee and Junior leaving a Federal Courthouse in Brooklyn is below.

Carla Facciolo is back together with her estranged husband Joseph Ferragamo and has called off the divorce. Hopefully he’ll remain out of prison and they can stay happily married.

Karen Gravano is still hard at work on her book which according to the M.O.B. Wives blog is titled MobDaughter and is slated to be released in February 2012 — right in the middle of Season 2! A photo of Karen attending a publishing meeting for the book is below, a mock-up of the book cover is behind her in the pic!

As for ol’ Drita “Brass Knuckles” D’avanzo she’s been spotted hanging out with Jersey Shore‘s infamous Snooki! Oh lawd, the thought of their antics is causing me heart palpitations! Drita recently posted some pictures of the two of them on her Facebook page. A photo of Snookers and Drita is below. Right after these were taken the two did tequila shots until punching random people in the head seemed like a good idea, then got leopard print tattoos, flashed some people, bought a fur and danced on a bar. Ok, I made that part up, but I imagine that’s what happened.

The most exciting news for the new season of Mob Wives is the introduction of a NEW WIFE! Yes, Karen is the odd girl out no more as her ‘cousin’ is joining the cast in an effort to make Renee’s overly Restylane’d head explode!

According to the NY Post, Ramona Rizzo (pictured below) has been added to the cast! Ramona is a divorced mother of four currently living in New Jersey, but was raised in Staten Island along side Renee and Karen.“Karen and Ramona grew up together, did their first Communion together and slept over each other’s houses,” Jennifer Graziano — Renee’s sister and the creator and producer of the show – reveals. “They’re really close and call each other ‘cousins.’ ”

“They’re probably tighter than real blood cousins, but they’re not related, ” she adds.

Ramona has quite the organized crime legacy! Her grandfather was Benjamin “Lefty Guns” Ruggiero, a member of the Bonnano crime family who was a subject of the movie “Donnie Brasco” and played by Al Pacino!

Ironically Ramona’s legendary grandfather was also somewhat of a traitor who “unwittingly” played a role in the downfall of the mob when he brought undercover FBI agent Joe Pistone (Johnny Depp‘s character in the movie) into the crime family. Ramona’s grandfather died of cancer in prison in 1994 and was never punished by the mob for his accidental nark.

Ramona has been Tweeting up a storm since the news leaked that she was participating in the show and even tweeted a photo of her and bestie Karen! A photo of the pseudo cousins is below!

Is anyone else a tad bit frightened about the drama shizzstorm we’re in for this season? Watch out Real Housewives of New Jersey, the real gangsters of reality TV are claiming their turf!

Mob Wives season 2 will premiere Jan. 1 (8/7c) on Vh1. Are you ready to stab somebody with a stiletto?! See the teaser below!

Mob Wives VH1
Ready or not, the Mob Wives are gearing up for a sophomore season following the success of their first!

The VH1 network recently announced that the second season of the hit show will return to airwaves on January 1, 2012. Returning are all of the four original cast members – Drita D’avanzo, Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano and Carla Facciolo.

The press release promises the second season of Mob Wives will pick up where the first left off – with each cast member dealing with major personal life issues.

“The rift between Karen and Drita is far from over – will they ever be able to ‘bury the hatchet’? Renee goes under the knife for major plastic surgery that may have some unexpected consequences, while also contemplating her future with her ex-husband Junior. Drita is considering her options when it comes to leaving her husband Lee – while Carla’s relationship with her estranged husband Joe may take an unexpected twist. And, of course, everyone wants to know what’s in Karen’s soon-to-be-released book – the one she moved back to New York to write!”

Even better, the network also announced that a new spin-off Mob Wives: Chicago will debut in the Spring 2012! Yes Mob Wives: Chicago will introduce a new cast of women suffering the stronzi and agita of their Mafiosi connections.

“Our viewers connected so strongly with our New York cast that we were skeptical about trying to repeat that success, said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Production. “But once we met these ladies from Chicagoland heard their truly unbelievable stories, we knew that viewers would become just as captivated as we did. These women’s life experiences may be far different from our own, but their current struggles to stand on their own two feet are relatable to everyone.”

So there you have it folks! Mob Wives season 2 will return Jan. 1 at 8/7c while the new Chicago spinoff will debut in Spring of 2012!

TELL US – LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEW SEASON OF MOB WIVES? THOUGHTS ON THE CHICAGO SPIN-OFF?

For Mob Wives star Carla Facciolo, the divorce is off!

Star magazine is reporting that Carla has decided to hold off on her divorce to her ex-con husband Joseph Ferragamo in favor of reuniting with him!

Carla herself confirms the news to the mag. “I didn’t like him much before,” admits Carla. “But now I’m beginning to like him again.” If you recall, Carla had decided to divorce Joseph on the show while he was incarcerated citing they already had marital issues before he went to prison.

Joseph, who has 8-year-old twins with Carla, was however recently released from a Brooklyn halfway house after serving six years in prison for stock fraud.

“Carla has been gracious and given me another chance,” he tells Star, while Carla adds: “The hope is to hold this family together. We will be OK.”

Carla reuniting with Joseph isn’t much of a surprise. It was pretty clear on the show that she still had feelings for him, despite having a boyfriend, as she would always perk up whenever he called from prison. Good luck to the two.

And as we reported months ago, VH1 renewed Mob Wives for a second season and Carla just tweeted moments ago that it will premiere in January! “Coming back in Jan…Get ready!” she wrote. Can’t wait!
