Mob Wives Renee
Mob Wives star Renee Graziano remains hospitalized after being rushed to the emergency room on Friday, just hours after her father was arrested… again.

According to TMZ, Renee suffered a panic attack, collapsed, and had trouble breathing after getting the news that her dad Anthony “TG” Graziano, had been arrested in an early morning raid.

Even worse for Renee, her ex-husband HectorJunior” Pagan is the one responsible for helping put her father back in jail. If you recall, the NY Post broke the news last December that Junior had become a FBI informant and had been secretly taping his conversations with Renee’s dad.

Junior is said to have flipped for the FBI and DEA last summer while he was facing a long prison term for armed robbery. He then agreed to wear a wire and record conversations with his ex-father-in-law. Those recordings reportedly caught Renee’s dad Anthony instructing Junior to collect a $150,000 loan shark debt from an unidentified man.

Both Junior and Anthony, 71, were arrested following a raid last November, before Junior was ultimately exposed as an informant.

Renee revealed in a recent interview that she no longer knows of Junior’s whereabouts. Even worse and probably more crushing for Renee, one has to wonder if Junior’s whole attempt to reconcile and move back in with her was simply a ruse to get closer to her father and help turn him in to the authorities.

As for Renee, her sister and show creator Jennifer Graziano told VH1 on Saturday: “Renee is suffering from complete mental exhaustion, emotional strain and physical pain due to the recent publicity regarding our father, Anthony Graziano. She is being stabilized at Staten Island University Hospital.”

Renee still remains in the hospital as she tweeted both last night and this morning. She wrote last night: “4 the gossip’n flippn floppin around. I’m laid up in a hospital bed unAble 2 c the shw or help figure out whts up!! Atay tuNed.”

And before she was hospitalized, Renee made a series of tweets about the situation. The tweets have now been deleted but a screenshot is below courtesy of VH1. On a lighter note, the Big Ang mania continues! In fact, a fan recently got a tattoo of Big Ang and a photo of that tat is below as well!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? DO YOU THINK JUNIOR WAS JUST USING RENEE TO GET TO HER DAD?

RENEE’S TWEETS & BIG ANG’S FAN TATTOO ARE BELOW -


In today’s extremely shocking Mob Wives news, the NY Post is reporting that Renee Graziano’s ex-husband Hector “Junior” Pagan has been wearing a wire for the FBI for the past year.

Even more shocking, Junior, who reportedly flipped for the FBI and became their informant last summer, has now helped put Renee’s father — Bonanno crime family capo Anthony Graziano — back in jail. Anthony, 71, was just recently released from prison after finishing up a long sentence.

The drama began last week after Junior and his former father-in-law were arrested on Staten Island during filming for season 2 of the VH1 show. But late last week, Renee and the other cast members discovered Junior’s secret after a report in the online mob newsletter ganglandnews.com revealed Junior had been secretly taping conversations with Renee’s dad Anthony for the FBI.

Renee’s sister and show creator Jennifer Graziano opened up about the shocking ordeal to the NY Post. “The first inclination is always to say, ‘Shut it down,’ ” a shaken up Jennifer told The Post of the show. “It is a reality show, and I knew this was going to be personal to me going into this,” she said. “But I didn’t know this was going to happen.”

Reports state that Junior, who was facing a long prison term for armed robbery, agreed to wear a wire and record conversations with his ex-father-in-law. Those recordings reportedly caught Renee’s dad Anthony instructing Junior to collect a $150,000 loan shark debt from an unidentified man.

Junior, who has a 17-year-old son with Renee, was reportedly set to have a bigger role on the VH1 show this season. In fact, the NY Post reveals that on the first episode of season 2, set to debut Jan. 1, Junior can be seen pacing outside a federal courthouse in Brooklyn, telling Renee over the phone that he had been offered a deal by prosecutors on an earlier arrest.

Renee’s sister Jennifer, however, makes it clear the show must go on as they have only filmed seven out of the 12 episodes scheduled for season 2.“We’re making a reality show, and this is the reality of what’s going on,” said Jennifer.

As for how Renee is taking the news, Jennifer states: “Renee is an open book and lets people into her life because she wants people to understand what she’s going through.” Renee has also been quoting bible verses on her Twitter page as she tweeted over the weekend, “Evn whn I hve troubles all around me U, GOD will keep me alive! Whn my enemies r angry U, GOD will reach dwn n sve me w ur pwer. Psalm 138:7.”

When it comes to her father, Jennifer says, “He spoke to my mother and he just said he wished he could have had Thanksgiving with his family. He’s [locked up] and he’s going to deal with it.”

Pretty shocking news indeed. Oddly enough, Renee and her cast members have always made such a big deal about their dislike for “rats.” In fact, Renee did not want to rekindle a friendship with costar Karen Gravano last season due to the fact that her father Sammy “The Bull” Gravano also became an informant for the FBI.

So will Renee, who has admittedly had a hard time letting go of her ex, continue to stand by him? There have been reports that the two had in fact reconciled and were dating again. We will have to wait and see on the upcoming season. But safe to say season 2 will be GOOOD.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS NEWS? ARE YOU SHOCKED THAT JUNIOR BECAME A FBI INFORMANT? DO YOU THINK RENEE WILL CONTINUE TO STAND BY HIM?

Surprise Surprise – appearing on a reality show called Mob Wives is causing family drama for the stars of the show!

In a new interview with the Hollywood Life, Renee Graziano revealed that her super gangster father Anthony Graziano (who is currently behind bars in a federal penitentiary), no longer speaks to her since her decision to appear on Mob Wives and expose all their family secrets and scandals to the world. You don’t say?! You mean a heavy duty gangster and former consigliere of the Bonanno crime family, doesn’t want his daughter on TV bragging about how gangster she is and acting like a Mob Groupie? Hmmm…

When asked about her father’s reaction to her appearance on the series, Renee says: “He has no reaction because we don’t speak, not now, not after I made the decision to do the show. He said to me, ‘You made your bed. Now sleep in it.’ My father doesn’t agree with anyone putting their life on [TV].”

Renee goes on to explain that going on the show wasn’t about her father anyways, but about her, of course: “I think I needed to develop my own identity outside of my family life — out of the lifestyle,” Renee reveals in the article. She goes on to add, “I was also pretty tired of people judging me upon a lifestyle — not realizing that I’m a woman, I’m a mom, I go through hardships. No sympathy — that’s not something that I want from anyone. It was my way of really planting my feet and making a change in my life.”

Oh, well, that’s an original attitude for the star of a reality show – narcissism! I mean what has Renee done that would give her a reason to be on TV except be related to some gangsters? Renee also says that everyone else in her family supports her and that her father loves her anyways.

In more family dramz for the ‘ladies’, Mob Wives resident Ultimate Fighter Drita D’avanzio is facing some criticism for her parenting skills. In an article by HollyBaby, a “source” (re: someone Drita got in a drunken brawl with and punched in the face) reveals that Drita – scandal! – has been taking her nine-year-old daughter Aleeya to visit her dad Lee D’avanzo in prison. Well, I mean otherwise would this girl even know what her father looks like? He’s been incarcerated pretty much her entire life!

The article explains that the first time Lee went away, Drita told Aleeya that her daddy was off working. But poor Aleeya still had to deal with teasing from her classmates that she didn’t have a daddy. And when Lee returned home, Aleeya “had a really hard time adapting,” says the source.

“When he first came home, Aleeya told all her friends, ‘See, I told you I had a dad.’” However, the second time Lee went to prison Drita decided to tell her daughter the truth. “The second time around she decided to tell her where her dad was so she didn’t think he up and left for no reason,” explains the friend. The article also lets us know that Lee and Drita are still happily (really?) married: “She has her second thoughts every now and then, like anyone would after 12 years of marriage. But she is standing strong.” The source adds that Lee “has another 2 to 4 years left.”

I don’t think it’s a big deal for her to take her older daughter to see her father, as long as she doesn’t take her younger one. What do you think? Should Drita be dragging her fourth grader to the federal pen for visits or not? Also, if you were Renee’s dad – would you disown her?
