Mob Wives

 Karen Gravano and Renee Graziano Mob Wives Season 5

Mob Wives seemed destined to be a hit on concept alone – a fascinating glimpse into the lives of America’s ever-elusive mafia = ratings gold! But five seasons later Renee Graziano, whose sister created the show, and Karen Gravano, who rejoined this season, are discussing how the show has affected their lives, what it’s done for their relationships, and what they’ve learned from it all! 

Renee’s life has gone through incredible changes on-screen from, rekindling with her ex-husband Junior Pagan, only to learn he ratted out her father and then got sent to prison for murder, to battling addiction. 

“I have gotten use to my personal life being aired. I only wish the whole truth was told,” admits Renee. “I think I’d be more respected and less hated or not looked at like a drama queen, but as a woman who has been dealt a hand and still finds a way to pull aces and jokers when in need. You know about a third of what I have experienced as a daughter, as a wife, as a woman, and as a victim, or as I prefer: survivor.”

So let’s raise a blood-filled glass to last night’s Mob Wives, shall we? Drita D’avazo and family are back from Disney World now that Lee is done with parole and was able to cross state lines. She reminisces with her daughters about their favorite memories from the Magic Kingdom. She encourages her girls to make a scrapbook for Lee so he knows how much he is loved and has a memory book of the times he missed while he was in jail. Drita coaches her girls on what to write and post, and she’s excited to surprise him with the pictures that will make him feel somewhat a part of their childhood. 

After making up with her seahag friends, Natalie Guercio has planned a girls night with Drita and Big Ang to celebrate the fact that all is well in their friendship. Both Ang and Drita feel badly for ever doubting their friend. Natalie’s twins are on display, but Drita and Ang’s chest s are competing for the top spot. Natalie is glad that Fraudalie wasn’t able to negatively influence her friends. I am thrilled that now I have the nicknames “Ratalie” and “Fraudalie” to distinguish the Natalies. Natalie and Natalie 2.0 were getting too confusing!

It was a kitchen battle royale for some reality stars last night on the Food Network. Chopped featured four of reality’s finest competing for $10,000 for their favorite charity in a challenge that featured vegetable cream cheese, biscuit dough, and cherry pie filling…hopefully not all in the same dish!

Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Kathy Wakile posted the above-picture on her Instagram to hype last night’s episode. Her competitors? Little People, Big World’s Amy Roloff, Travis Lofland of Deadliest Catch, and Mob Wives resident grudge holder Renee Graziano! Are we sure it’s a good idea to let her near knives? I kid, I kid! I think it’s a fun way to raise money for a good cause! I’ll be honest…this post was just going to be a blurb about reality stars duking it out in the kitchen on the Food Network, but I was so intrigued, I had to watch.

Reality TV Viewer Numbers Vanderpump Rules

The reality TV viewer numbers are in – and there were a few surprising losses.

On Vanderpump Rules, the drama surrounding Kristen and Miami Girl drew a larger crowd (1.691 million) than Scheana and Mike’s wedding (1.581 million). Before this week, the Celebrity Apprentice was averaging nearly 6.5 million viewers, but only 4.98 million tuned in to see the final task. I would say maybe Kenya was on to something when she took credit for the high ratings, however, Real Housewives of Atlanta suffered a substantial loss this week too.

Also this week, 2.543 million sat through the family drama on Love & Hip Hop, 1.855 million watched Kim and Kyle continue to be nasty to each other on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, 1.678 million (the second highest audience this season) tuned in to see Nia in the studio with Aubrey O’Day on Dance Moms, the season finale of Kate Plus 8 attracted 1.44 million fans, and a double dose of Sister Wives that no one asked for logged an average of 1.26 million.

Joining a reality show is often like opening Pandora’s Box. And Natalie Guercio has learned this first hand! She hasn’t had an easy time since joining Mob Wives – she’s fought with co-stars, had her boyfriend’s face slashed, and her personal life and mothering insulted. Now Natalie admits she might be done with the show, but she does share that the show has some positives. 

One of the biggest struggles for Natalie, aside from dealing with her standoffish co-stars, was the preconceived notions people had about her, but luckily she was bolstered by hometown support. “A lot of people at home they’re happy for me, because it’s somebody from their hometown that made it on TV,” she shares.

Natalie, who moved from Philly to Staten Island to participate in Mob Wives, says even getting an apartment willing to allow filming was a challenge! “They didn’t want us there. They didn’t want the cameras there,” she recounts. “They would Google the show, they would Google me and it’s like, what the hell – it’s like a job! There’s a law in New York you can’t hold somebody accountable for their legal paying job.”

Clearly, VH1 is trying to prove to us that the Mob Wives are just fun people who hate brawling and enjoy each other’s company. Sure, we’ll go with that. I don’t know how to explain last night’s episode where Renee Graziano acted (dare I say) normal, Drita D’Avanzo’s focus was on a family trip, Karen Gravano was trying to bring her immediate family together in Arizona, and Big Ang, well, Ang is always the voice of reason regardless of circumstance. Natalie Guercio is going to need to learn when to push and when to put on the brakes. At least some things never change…

We begin with Renee channeling her inner goddess with a photo shoot for her Mob Candy brand. I must say she looks fabulous. A bob is a good look for her, and she’s happy with where her friendships are at this point in her life. From Mob Candy to Lady Boss, Drita is having her weekly conversation with Lee since he refuses to be on camera. She’s thrilled her daughter is excelling at soccer given that she was a soccer star back in the day. The couple decides that a Disney trip needs to be in the works for their family…now that Lee is allowed to cross state lines. Win!

Celebrity Apprentice

The reality TV viewer numbers are in. Celebrity Apprentice, Vanderpump Rules, and Mob Wives all celebrated season high numbers this week. Nearly seven million sat through phone gate on Celebrity Apprentice, 1.691 million viewers saw Lisa fire Kristen on Vanderpump Rules, and 1.252 million tuned in to watch the brawl aftermath on Mob Wives. 

Last week, over two million tuned in to see the drama between Kyle and Brandi on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but only 1.726 million fans tuned in this week. Mama drama on Love  Hip Hop attracted 2.582 million, ALDC’s move to L.A. on Dance Moms garnered 1.519 million viewers, and baby and butt talk on Little Women L.A. attracted 1.292 million.

Hey, remember that time Natalie Guercio and Karen Gravano got into a knock-down-drag-out fight where both ladies ended up with scratched faces and handfuls of hair? Yeah, me too. Do you also remember that time that the always breezy and light-hearted Big Ang became a force to reckoned with among the Mob Wives? No? You must have missed last night’s episode then! 

As Natalie and Karen are separated, Drita D’avanzo and Ang wonder why their friends are so insane. Renee Graziano is proud of Karen’s showing. Karen attempts to approach Natalie again, but she’s deterred. Natalie casually puffs on her cigarette before being escorted away. Drita is livid. If there is another altercation, she plans on being in the thick of it. Ang knows that once you talk about family–and draw blood–there is no return. At their New York apartment, London comes home from the gym and questions what happened to Natalie’s face. She rehashes the argument, promising she tried to watch her mouth. However, when Karen lashed out at her, Natalie won. London is fine with his girlfriend fighting as long as she’s defending herself. Natalie believes that she may still have a bond with her once biffle Renee who didn’t assist Karen in the beat down. Natalie, like Karen, can’t wait for round two. There are some things worth going to jail for, as Karen so eloquently puts it.
