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.
In a statement about the upcoming season, Mob Wives creator Jennifer Graziano shares, “Philly and New York mobsters have mostly been known to be friendly with one another. The new women were an organic addition to our existing cast as even Natalie has New York roots and ties to some ‘friendly faces.’ Natalie’s spitfire ways and Alicia’s personal story about getting arrested and ‘going down’ with the mob offers a new perspective on what it means to ‘live the lifestyle’ or to be a ‘mob wife.’ We are looking forward to a fresh, new and rejuvenated season!”

Well, I certainly didn't see this coming! With a new season of Mob Wives currently filming, I figured all the ladies would be back to wreak havoc on Staten Island. Apparently, according to Ramona Rizzo, that is not the case!
In fact, Ramona is confirming that she is no longer a part of the cast…and neither is her biffle Karen Gravano and her part-time nemesis Carla Facciolo. First her wedding plans botched by the Feds and now this? Poor Ramona!
If you've been watching Mob Wives since its inception, you know it wasn't always Big Ang and spa days and break-downs. The ladies used to be scary violent until they realized what an atrocious example they were setting for their kids. Now, even with underlying tension, they're relatively tame. Even the sharp-tongued threats of Ramona Rizzo have been soothed with the sweet feelings of true love, even if that love has to be expressed via telephone while staring into her lover's eyes through a sheet of plate glass. Le sigh…and more on that in a bit!
I guess VH1 was getting bored with the lack of drama and feuding because the network is mixing it up with new cast member Alicia DiMichele Garafola…and she and Karen Gravano are not going to see eye-to-eye. Why, you ask? Oh just a little thing called "Karen's dad admitted he put a hit out on Alicia's father-in-law at the command of John Gotti." No biggie.
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!
