Things certainly haven't been easy for Mob Wives star Renee Graziano, to say the least. In the last couple seasons of the VH1 hit, her husband helped send her father to jail in exchange for a more lenient sentence, her temper was off the charts, and she admitted she was an addict.
Battling depression and prescription pill addiction, Renee knew she needed to get clean for the sake of her son A.J. She went to rehab, and reveals that it has helped her get back her life…even if her temper is still frightening and she's paranoid about everything. She may be learning how to live clean and sober, but I doubt she'll ever learn how to be drama-free!
When we left Mob Wives, Ramona Rizzo was preparing to wed her jailed love Joseph “Joe Boy” Sclafani who is allegedly a member of the famed Gambino crime family. While the VH1 reality show left us hanging with the pair's nuptials, Ramona is speaking out about how the duo makes it work despite the separation. And by separation, I mean the plate glass window in the prison.
While the couple has yet to walk down the aisle, Ramona is still full-steam ahead with wedding plans. Speaking to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Ramona shares how she is preparing for a life of wedded bliss when the fate of her fiance's future is still unknown.
Seriously, who doesn't love Big Ang? The Mob Wives star is enjoying the spoils of a successful spin-off which will be returning this fall and her bar the Drunken Monkey is now a happening haunt on Staten Island.
Now, Ang has opened another watering hole in a warmer locale…her self-proclaimed home away from home. May I introduce you to Ang's newest business endeavor, the Miami Monkey?
Her personality is larger than life…and so are her boobs! Big Ang has endeared herself to Mob Wives fans so much so that she was granted a VH1 spin-off last year. We've seen her be a loyal friend, a caring mother, and a wild and crazy party animal. Her hobbies include tanning, smoking, drinking, and enhancing body parts. What's not to love?
Ang has a hilarious relationship with her husband, and she supported her son as he faced jail and rehab. Among her friends she is often the only voice of reason, and she is never at a loss for words. Some may say that Ang can't keep her mouth shut…and it's not just because she has too much filler in her lips!
You know who just doesn't give a flying flip what people think (and I love her so much for it!)? Mob Wives'Big Ang, that's who! The tanned and enhanced bartender gives the even-handed advice and tough love with her raspy smoker's voice on the VH1 hit, and she's always good for a hilarious one-liner.
When she's not keeping the peace, Ang enjoys tanning, smoking, cooking, tanning, fillers, plastic surgery, smoking, tatting, cooking, smoking, and playing with her pooch Louis…as in Vuitton. Now Ang can add another hobby to her list–piercing!
Love has been talking it up on twitter, but hasn't given a concrete reason as to why she was handed her walking papers. Is it because she threatened to kill a lady or two? Love maintains she was actually fired by the production company Left/Right Productions.
Karen Gravano reveals that Love's termination had everything to do with Carla Facciolo refusing to attend the reunion if she had to come face-to-face with Love during the taping. “I think Love wasn’t invited because Carla pretty much spoke to VH1 about not showing up if Love was invited,” Karen shared with RadarOnline.
Last night's reunion host was none other than Dr. Drew, who admits to being a huge fan of the show. Sure he is, just like he DVRs Teen Mom 2… I wonder if the ladies scared off Joy Behar or if she just had a prior commitment. I'm actually shocked they didn't get John Salley to be a part of this VH1 debacle! Drew smugly talks about the drama from the season and explains that there is some Love (Majewski, that is) lost–because she won't be appearing on the reunion after getting booted from the show. We're treated to a highlight reel of Love's looniest confessions and outbursts. The woman sure loves to stab people!
Last night was the season finale of Mob Wives which focused on a throwback party for Drita D'avanzo. Not surprisingly, the women went out with a bang–and of course, a brawl! When it comes to Karen Gravano, Ramona Rizzo, Carla Facciolo, and Renee Graziano, I think the women have grown a bit since seasons past. For me,Big Angis always on point with her advice. As for Love Majewski, she seriously frightened me when she said she wanted to go "bath salts zombie face-eating" on Carla. Chills!
Ramona and Karen are shopping for some '80s clothes for Drita's birthday bash. While looking through the acid-washed jeans and sequins, they rehash Karen's pre-nup party. Karen promises her friend that she wasn't trying to bash her wedding with the party, and the two become concerned that Love is going to beat up Carla at Drita's party. Karen thinks she'll be able to wrangle her friend so the night won't end with someone in an ambulance and someone else in handcuffs…and she knows how bad a night like that is from experience!
Carla is meeting with her soon-to-be-ex-husband Joe so they can discuss their divorce proceedings. She's not as concerned about their break-up as she is about Love's gossip. Joe is floored to find out that Love thinks he and his father stole her angel wings logo. Carla tells him about Drita's birthday party, and he urges her not to get involved in the ladies' cattiness. After all, she's a mother! Joe gives good advice, but I'll be surprised if Carla actually heeds it.
