Mob Wives

Mob Wives VH1

On Sunday’s Mob Wives, Take This Book and Shove It, things are relatively calm, but a storm is brewing. Carla Facciolo’s husband is finally a free man, while Drita D’avanzo can’t figure out when Lee will be joining her on the outside. Renee struggles with her destructive relationship with Junior, and Karen fancies herself a James Patterson and can’t figure out why frenemy Drita won’t serve as her editor.

“Celebrate good times, come on!” Joe is being released from the slammer after just six years of incarceration (mere minutes compared to the other ladies’ husbands and fathers). Carla grabs her Louis Vuitton luggage (oh, and the twins) and heads out in her Mercedes SUV to collect Joe from prison. I was curious about the luggage until I found out Joe isn’t coming home but heading to a halfway house. Yeah, nothing says pass the shower soap like the dude in the halfway house using his wife’s designer bag after serving time for organized crime.

Following a one week hiatus, the Mob Wives returned last night with a much calmer episode. Let’s face it, any episode that doesn’t involve a brawl is a calm one for these ladies! Carla deals with the impending release of her husband from prison, Drita handles some scumbags (raccoons), Karen deals with the backlash from her mob non tell-all, and Renee finally admits what we knew all along — she’s still not over Junior.

The episode begins with Renee and Carla meeting up for some drinks and eats. And err weren’t these two ladies just trying to kill each other an episode ago? Carla reads my mind as she states she has simply decided to let bygones be bygones. Renee brings up dating once again, and once again the topic of that convo goes back to Junior. Renee reveals she wants a “big jaw, strong,” man aka Junior. Carla wonders why she always keeps going back to Junior and Renee denies still being in love with him. We don’t believe you Renee! We also find out Renee and Carla have known each other since their teenage years, so why does one lady look much older than the other?

Mob Wives DritaMob Wives Karen

Less than a week after the Mob Wives episode aired where Drita D’avanzo apologized to Karen Gravano for getting with her ex-boyfriend Lee and pretending Karen was crazy for feeling betrayed; Drita is taking her apology back! As both ladies now reveal they might never be friends again.

In fact, Drita says the only reason she apologized at all is: “I felt bad because she was crying. I’m a softy when it comes to anybody crying.” In a new article for Hollywood Life, Karen and Drita talk about their Made-For-TV faux-lationship and subsequent man drama; admitting they are no longer friends At. All. Or as the Mob would say they’re ¡finito!

Both Karen and Drita feel the reason their friendship fell apart is Lee trust. Drita claims that Karen calling it like it is her husband Lee “scum” was too much: “I can’t see being friends with her,” says Drita. “I just think that she crossed a line that I don’t think I really could come back from. In my heart, I don’t know if I could trust her.” Drita continues: “Friend, what friend? There’s no friendship once you do that,” referring to a previous episode when Karen came over to discuss why Drita started dating her ex. The “discussion” did not go well and resulted in a screaming fight between the women where Karen insulted Lee.

Karen agrees that Drita’s apology to her was not sincere and feels: “The bottom line is, Drita was my friend, for a friend to be able to put some things in the past, you have to close the doors and be able to build on trust. So if she couldn’t apologize to me and she’s going to keep making excuses, I can’t trust her.”

Karen also adds that she doesn’t care about scummy Lee (oh, really?): “For me, it was not about Lee, I could have licked it in the butt and walked past it quick. We could have been friends and it wouldn’t have been drawn out if she said sorry and said it sincerely without hitting me with timelines and excuses and reasons for why she did what she did. But she kept missing the point — she kept thinking I was getting at him.”

In other Mob Wives friend feuds, Renee Graziano is still upset about her brawl with fellow castmate Carla Facciolo (who I am guessing from the no comment has moved on).

In a new interview for the New York Post, Renee, who is disappointed the show has portrayed her truthfully as “a loud, foul-mouthed drama queen,” is still furious about the way things went down between her and Carla at her dinner party: “Why didn’t I crack her? I’m not violent. I don’t raise my hands ever. I would never hit somebody. But I should have broken her f- – -ing jaw.” Well, obviously those two are ¡finito! as well. The article also mentioned that Karen and Renee watched last Sunday’s episode together and “both are still fuming over their spats” with castmates Drita and Carla!

So whose side are you on? Drita’s? Karen’s? Renee’s? Or Carla’s? Who else cannot wait for a Mob Wives Reunion show!? Bring it on, Vh1!

On last night’s episode of Mob Wives, the ladies sort of make amends after taking dinner party from hell to a whole new meaning. Renee pretends she wants to date a normal man who is not in the mafia, Drita and Carla have incarcerated husband situations, and Karen finally snaps and throws a vase at Renee, but fails to knock any sense into her. Darn.

The episode began exactly where last week’s ended – with brawling in Renee’s dining room! Renee laments that when she set up her Sunday dinner it was to get the girls together to calmly talk about their mental issues, but sadly her “beautiful Sunday dinner has turned into a cage fight.” Renee should have expected as much since with all the issues these girls have it would take more than a Sunday evening to work through everything; more like Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and all the way to the next week!

During the argument ready to rumble Drita “squares up” to break apart Carla and Renee, but Karen “The Bull” Gravano says Drita is going to have to get through her first! Clearly those two definitely still have high school drama things to work out. Good thing friend savior Renee invited them both! Renee claims that not only is Carla “attacking” her in her own home, she is also screaming in her face because she doesn’t want to hear the truth about her own boyfriend. Remember, Renee just wants to protect Carla from dating a serial a** groper. Carla has a different opinion of Renee “That mouth don’t stop going!” Graziano – she thinks Renee is a liar. So Carla tells Renee as much.

Mob Wives Cast - Karen Gravano, Drita D’avanzo, Renee Graziano, and Carla Facciolo

Good news fans of Mob Wives! The VH1 network has officially picked up the show for a second season.

This news comes as no surprise as the show has been doing very well in ratings, averaging over 1.3 million viewers per episode. All four women will be back for season two.

In addition to the season 2 news, the network also announced a “Mob Wives” reunion special is set to air July 10. Something tells us there will be plenty of security on the set!

And if you thought the last ‘dinner from hell’ episode of the show was dramatic, you ain’t seen nothing yet!

According to a new report by the NY Post, there is still at least one more fight coming our way this season. Castmates and former friends Karen Gravano and Drita D’avanzo reportedly got into a nasty physical fight during the season finale taping at the Rare View bar atop the Shelburne Hotel in New York. In fact things got so crazy, that it left one castmate bloody.

Once Karen and Drita got physical, security is said to have stepped in and separated the two, who were taken in different elevators. However, the fight spilled into the lobby, and security ended up throwing them out of the hotel according to sources.

Another cast member Renee Graziano ended up bleeding in the scuffle after she cut her leg on a bench.

In the mean time, it seems VH1 has yet to decide on whether or not they will air the fight. A VH1 rep stated, “At this time, we are concerned about the well-being of our cast. The network has yet to determine whether we will air this footage.” VH1 has standards?

Last night’s episode of Mob Wives was about lying liars and the lies they tell, oh and boyfriend hatin’ mafia princess Renee Graziano. Meanwhile Karen Gravano and Drita D’avanzo are still upset about last weeks fight about some guy they both like. Carla Facciolo’s boyfriend is grabbing a** all over town, well he’s grabbing almost everyone’s a**, and Renee just wants everyone to get along by acknowledging that she is always right about everything!

The show started out with Drita going to Carla’s to rehash the “Karen Loves Lee Forever” fight from last week. She is still upset that Karen called Lee a “scumbag.” Hey, truth hurts… Carla comments that a man should never come between friends. Drita explains to us that she went easy on Karen because if she wasn’t such a good friend she would f*ck her up especially because Karen was talking about Lee where her kids might hear. Across town in a parallel universe, Karen is complaining to Renee about Drita! For some reason Renee keeps repeating that Drita is a coward and owes Karen an apology? Karen says she she doesn’t feel like the situation is cleared up. You know I think I agree!

On last night’s episode of Mob Wives we discovered that friends and boyfriends simply don’t mix in the wilds of Staten Island. Here are the rules: 1) Friends aren’t allowed to date your ex-boyfriend; even if you maybe dated him 20 years ago when you were in high school, but if you do happen to date your friend’s ex, you should definitely be honest about it, according to Karen Gravano. And rule number 2) Your boyfriend isn’t allowed to talk to any of your friends – even if he may be joking or trying to be nice, because if that friend happens to be Renee Graziano things are going to get crazy.

The episode started off with Renee making an eerie observation that for once all four of them are getting along. As soon as the words were spoken we all know that means by the middle of the episode somebody will be brawlin’. To celebrate the fact that no one was fighting, choking each other, or threatening to break their twat neck they had girls’ night out in NYC – but really it was Renee’s night out. Renee, Renee, Renee – did you know she is a Mafia Princess, you know, Anthony Graziano’s daughter? Just in case you didn’t, this is your reminder: Renee is a mafia princess and Anthony Graziano – infamous mob boss of Staten Island – is her father.

Renee educates the waiter letting him know that because she is a special kind of girl – a mafia princess – she is “very spoiled” and their table needs a lot of attention; it’s not her fault – she doesn’t mean to be difficult – but she is. While at dinner she is flirtatious and outgoing – larger than life – and literally talking about how large she is by complaining about being fat and needing liposuction for her arms. When Carla and Drita suggest going to the gym, she rebuffs them – that’s what plastic surgeons are for – she can get the same results after 24 hours on a surgeon’s table. Renee knows from experience since she had a nose job and during a toast to her friends she declares: “Here’s to the realest f*cking people, aside from my nose.”

Renee Graziano and son AJ PaganMob Wives Karen

It seems Mob Wives star Renee Graziano is still working hard to break away from the mob princess mentality. This was witnessed on the most recent episode of the show when Renee called her ex-husband Hector Pagan Jr aka Junior for back up after a bar patron insulted her.

In a new interview with the HollywoodLife, Renee opens up about wanting to create a better lifestyle for both her and her 17-year-old son AJ Pagan, adding that AJ has inspired her to want to change. “I wouldn’t want my son to go to jail,” Renee says. “AJ is going in a completely different direction. He’s going to make himself a better life.”

Renee adds that she is tired of seeing AJ go through the heartaches of the mob lifestyle such as watching his father Junior possibly get locked up again. “It breaks me emotionally,” explains Renee. “Watching your child feel pain makes you angry, very angry. It’s probably harder than anything anyone has to do.”

Renee states that raising AJ has given her strength to become more independent. “I lived an empty life,” she admits. Now, “I’m trying to change my life and define myself outside of the way I was brought up.” Renee also adds that her renewed friendship with co-star Karen Gravano is helping her leave her old ways behind.

And speaking of Karen, she is now clearing up the rumor that she was ever in a witness protection program, which was sort of insinuated on the show no? Also talking to the HollywoodLife, Karen reveals that unlike her father Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano — former Gambino family underboss turned FBI informant — she was never in the witness protection program.

“People have it confused,” Karen says. “The way it was, this was my father’s life, it didn’t have to do with me. I didn’t understand why he cooperated, he felt John betrayed him. I thought it wasn’t my life. I was going to stand on my own — that’s why I didn’t go into witness protection.”

Karen then explains why she moved away from New York to Arizona. “I moved to Arizona because my family was there and I thought it was a better way to raise Karina,” Karen says of her daughter. “And my brother [Gerard Gravano] was in prison, so I helped raise his son as well.”

Karen states, “When my father got out of prison, he went into witness protection for eight months and moved to Arizona and joined my family… I was very reluctant to leave New York, [but] I missed my family and was fed up with the lifestyle in NYC. I moved there in 1997.”

As revealed on the show, Karen is now back living in Staten Island to both work on her book and clear her name.

Meanwhile, Mob Wives is proving to be a big hit for the ailing VH1 network. The premiere brought in close to 2 million viewers and the show continues to average a healthy 1.33 million viewers a week.
