I think someone is starting to realize that she may not be mean and scary enough to channel her inner cage fighter, which makes her not the best match for a reality show like Mob Wives. We’ve all seen last season’s spandex wearing newbie talk a big game, but Natalie Guercio doesn’t seem big on the face-to-face confrontations and physical altercations. Of course, that’s not a bad thing (dare I say it’s normal?), but it doesn’t mesh with the actions (and right hooks) of her counterparts.
Season five premiered on Wednesday, and Natalie, at least in the beginning, has seemingly aligned herself with the lovable Big Ang and the foul-mouthed, face crushing fighter with a heart of gold, Drita D’Avanzo. I do adore that pair! Of course, Renee Graziano, currently hating everyone except for Karen Gravano, is out for blood when it comes to Natalie. What does Natalie have to say about things?
Thank God for the highlight reel of last season’s Mob Wives before last night’s premiere! I had totally forgotten just how crazy Renee Graziano is, how much I adore Big Ang, and just how delicious the whole crew is. Bring Karen Gravano (as a blonde!) back into the mix, and we’ve got a legitimate World War III brewing right on VH1!
The reformed Drita D’Avanzo is happily recoupled with the recently released Lee. They are running three businesses, which is better than when Drita just wanted to run to the next fight. I’m glad to see she’s still tight with Ang, who has just renovated a new house. The women are ready for a girls’ night out, and they plan to include Natalie Guercio now that she’s a respectful and reformed Philadelphian. Because of Ang and Drita’s willingness to hang out with Natalie, Renee has turned on her two most loyal friends. They reveal that she’s been talking smack about them all over Staten Island just because they refuse to freeze out her nemesis. Wait, why is Natalie Renee’s most hated rival? Oh, that right, because Natalie once told Renee’s date he smelled delicious.
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.”
