Mob Wives Chicago

I have to say that mob life as I always pictured isn’t quite as mob-esque as what I gather from VH1.  Let me break it down for you…today’s Mob Wives‘ news revolves around a rap video and contract dispute.  Not very Tony Soprano if you ask me.

It seems that Mob Wives Chicago stars Nora Schweihs and Renee Fecarotta Russo have a lot to learn about the entertainment industry.  According to the Chicago Sun-Times, both are being sued by their manager Nick Celozzi, Jr.  He claims that he entered into management contracts with both women, and his talent company was able to land them a place at the Mob Wives Chicago casting call.  According to the two year contracts which were signed in December, both women agreed to pay him fifteen percent per episode of their VH1 paycheck.  With the women scoring $6,000 per show, Nick is entitled to $900 per show from each woman.

It’s the second installment of Mob Wives: Chicago.  These ladies aren’t pulling any punches…they are coming in guns blazing.

Renee Fecarotta Russo is embarrassed that the women are fighting in such a classy place.   Christina Scoleri pulls out Pia Rizza’s weave.  Someone has taken Drita 101.  Pia gets kicked out of the restaurant, although she seems confused as to why she was asked to leave.

Nora Schweihs goes to talk to Renee.  Neither can believe the debacle from the previous evening.  Renee thinks that both women were acting a fool. Nora tries to defend her friend’s behavior.  Nora convinces Renee to call Pia to see if she would be willing to call a truce.  Renee invites Pia over to have coffee with her and Nora.

Oh gracious!  We’ve got an entirely new city of mobster offspring.  Last night’s premiere of Mob Wives: Chicago proved to be even more intense (in my opinion) than it’s predecessor.

Renee Russo is proud that she’s a party to some major mob shiz in Chicago. Her uncle was a big wig in one of the major crime families, and viewers learn early on that he treated his niece like a princess.  She lived a high rolling fairy tale until her uncle’s best friend gunned him down…in the back.  Can I get Big Ang calling out a rat?  Renee reveals that she has two daughters, ages twenty and ten.  She reveals that her eldest daughter’s father is in jail for murder.  She claims to be about class, respect, and loyalty while pulling on her thigh boots and heading out for the evening.

With Mob Wives coming to a close last night, creator Jennifer Graziano is looking forward to the premiere of Mob Wives Chicago, as well as Big Ang’s new spinoff.

Jennifer sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to dish on both of her new shows.

Jennifer shared a little insight into Big Ang’s upcoming series: “She’s larger than life, and there’s going to be a couple of characters added to her show that are really going to make a splash. So I think that this show is going to be much different than Mob Wives in the sense that it’s going to be a lot more lighthearted and a lot more colorful and fun. Given the circumstances of what’s been going on with Mob Wives and the intensity, I’m looking forward to some of that colorfulness.”

She explains why she waited until season 2 to introduce the world to Big Ang. “I did know going into this that Big Ang was a star. I’ve known her since I was a kid, and I always had her in mind, but what I wanted to do was build the brand around the initial four women who had real close, authentic relationships. Big Ang has been a part of my family for like 25-30 years. She’s actually my older sister’s best friend. My thought was that she only really has a real connection through Renee, so let me build this first with these women who have these deeper relationships and kind of bring Big Ang in either for a couple of episodes that season and then have her in full time for the second season. And I think from a casting perspective, you always want to have something up your sleeve for the following season. Ang was my magic trick.”

Mob Wives Chicago
Following the major success of Mob Wives, it only makes sense that the VH1 network would expand the series with a spinoff!

Herein comes Mob Wives Chicago, which is set to début this Spring on the network! Even better, VH1 has also released the names and biographies of the five cast members.

The cast is pictured above, via the Chicago Suntimes, from left to right: Leah DeSimone, Renee Fecarotta Russo, Pia Rizza, Christina Scoleri and Nora Schweihs.

The press release states, Mob Wives Chicago will follow “the lives of five women allegedly connected to “The Outfit,” Chicago’s version of the Mob, as they bear the cross for the sins of their Mob-associated fathers. With lives that are right off the pages of a story book, each woman has chosen her own way to live her life in the city that was once home to Al Capone, sometimes in spite of and many times because of who her father is.”

So, what can we expect on this new series? According to VH1, “these women battle their friends, families and each other as they try to do what’s best for themselves and their children. But ultimately, it is the ghost of their fathers they battle, living and dead, as they try to overcome and persevere in the face of these men’s notorious legacies.”

Below are more cast photos and bios of each lady!

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!
