"It definitely affected the show, but what’s funny is it affected it in a good way," Drita D’Avanzosaid. "Whatever beef or nonsense was going on, it just disappeared. Everybody was like, texting each other, seeing if we were all okay, we were all helping and donating and cleaning and doing everything, it was nice to see that. Everybody put all their problems aside."
Obviously, production of the show had to be shut down for a while. But, the cameras are rolling again, and the next season of Mob Wives will show how the women cope in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. One way that Drita copes is by giving back to her community. Drita shares, "These people are just shocked, a lot of them are really stunned, a lot of them don’t know what they’re looking for, they’re just too shocked that they lost everything. My daughter knows a girl whose best friend died, this little girl. How do you deal with that?"
Even though a camera crew accompanied Renee in rehab to get footage for the upcoming season of the show, she felt inclined to do one thing the day she got out. Take a peek after the jump to see what Renee did!
Those crazy ladies who spend their days threatening to cut one another, visiting their husbands and boyfriends in jail, and ruling the streets of Staten Island have started filming a new season of the original Mob Wives. However, like many on the east coast, Drita D'Avanzo, Big Ang, Carla Facciolo, Karen Gravano, Renee Graziano, and Ramona Rizzo were affected by Hurricane Sandy, and production of the show was recently shut down due to the super storm.
In the aftermath of the storm that killed twenty-two people on Staten Island, the show's producer Jennifer Graziano wants to show how the ladies are coping and volunteering in their home town. After a week out of commission, cameras started following Big Ang, Drita, and Ramona as they headed out after Sandy.
Mob Wives star Renee Graziano's rep confirms that the reality star has checked herself into a rehab clinic in Florida this week.
Renee checked herself into Transitions rehab center in Miami, but her rep claims it's more for her mental well-being than for any issues with drugs and/or alcohol.
“Although Renee Graziano has been admitted to a rehabilitation center, it is not for any current drug or alcohol use of any kind. Her choice to enter rehab was made entirely on her own. She has made this decision for the betterment of her son AJ [Pagan]’s life, as well as to improve her physical, mental and spiritual health.”

Jenny dipped her toes into reality TV this past summer when she hosted "Love in the Wild". Okay, so it was more like just hosting a game show, which is how she started out back in her MTV days, but still. I think Jenny would be fun on a "full-on" reality series.
