I hope the following news doesn’t cause Mob Wives’Renee Graziano another epic meltdown. It seems that her ex-husband Junior Pagan has gotten really good at turning on his mobster friends. It shouldn’t be too hard to do, considering he’s had practice ratting out his father-in-law!
The NY Daily News reports that Junior has now snitched on two men, Richard Riccardi and Luigi Grasso, who were his accomplices during a robber which ended in a fatal shooting. Junior testified that Riccardi supplied him with guns and Grasso accompanied him to rob a man who was an associate of a rival family. When the man resisted, Junior shot him in the leg, causing the man to bleed to death. The Junior and his cohorts made off with over $10,000.
Renee Graziano just can’t catch a break! The Mob Wives star returned home from Atlantic City following a fourth of July/pre-birthday bash weekend to discover that her Staten Island home had been robbed.
Who is going to steal from a mafia princess? C’mon now people?! Renee’s home was allegedly ransacked and the police were called to the scene immediately according to TMZ. They took fingerprints and the investigation is ongoing.
I wonder what got thieved. Poor Renee… she’s had a tough few months.
WHY DO YOU THINK RENEE GOT ROBBED? WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY WERE LOOKING FOR?
We’re bringing you an all new photo post this week! Check out what your favorite reality TV stars have been up to all week long!

Below you’ll find reality stars glamming it up on the red carpet and out and about in L.A., NYC, and everywhere in between. Among them: Kendra Wilkinson, Toni Braxton, Renee Graziano, Drita D’avanzo, and more!
Part two of the Mob Wives reunion starts amidst the chaos of the Drita D’Avanzo and Ramona Rizzo. Renee Graziano is trying to separate the women, and Drita leaves the set. Joy Behar doesn’t even get out of her seat. She’s just watching the craziness. Finally the women come back to the sofas, where Drita and Ramona continue to scream and bleep and threaten to kill one another off camera. I think they even decide to fight it out after the reunion (in the parking lot, perhaps?), and there are accusations of being in a gang. They are too well-dressed for this nonsense. Carla Facciolo and Karen Gravano are trying to keep the peace, urging the women to speak nicely. Renee tries to redirect, and Karen jumps on her for interrupting Joy. Renee tells Joy how to run the show, and it actually makes sense.
Joy seems to have regained control and Drita and Ramona are able to discuss the fight without raising their voices…too much. The next confrontation highlighted is between Drita and Karen. Karen and Drita have different definitions of friendship, but they plan to respect their truce. Joy is concerned that once people start gossiping on Staten Island, the truce will disappear. Karen and Drita reveal that they have promised to go directly to the other to resolve any issues regarding the rumor mill. Ramona says that she and Carla have a similar agreement, but it seems that Carla still likes to talk about her. Joy was excited that she was able to keep the women calm for at least a few minutes. We need more Big Ang and less bleeping.

It’s reunion time for the Mob Wives. Oddly enough I feel as if the season flew by, but when I see footage of past episodes, I realize I’ve been watching this show for what seems like forever. Joy Behar is hosting the debacle, and I’m curious to see if she can keep the crazy in line.
We revisit the season, with special attention paid to Junior Pagan’s betrayal and Renee Graziano’s breakdown. Renee and her sister Jenn Graziano, who is a producer on the show, are asked about their thoughts on Junior. Renee is actually very calm, and sadly she reveals that she miscarried before everything went down with Junior. Her sister discusses why she continued to film Renee during her dark times, and Renee admits that she urged her sister to document it. Joy reminds Renee that Junior was wearing a wire in his watch which explains his reaction to Renee gifting him with a new watch for his birthday. Both Drita D’Avanzo and Jenn are confused as to why Junior would want to be on a television show when he was trying to be so sneaky. Renee and Jenn reveal that neither have spoken to Junior, and Renee has heard that he was rejected from the witness protection program.
Unsurprisingly, Renee Graziano ain’t scared of anything, not even another plastic surgery disaster. That’s right, even after her last attempt at a “full body lift” went terribly wrong, Renee has decided to attempt surgery again with Dr. Michael Fiorillo to fix the wounds and scarring from the last surgery.
In an interview with Radar Online, Renee reveals that she was on her deathbed following her last surgery: “I lost 6.3 pints of blood and the priest told my son to say goodbye to his mother. I didn’t want to take blood but my body was an ice cube so I had three pints transfused, my family made the decision for me because I was incoherent and they were told I had 10 minutes to live.”
Last night was the season finale of Mob Wives, and one never knows what is going to happen with this rowdy group of women…especially since there’s a dreaded meeting between to women who have a penchant for beating the poo out of each other.
Renee Graziano and Drita D’Avanzo meet for cocktails to discuss everything that has been going on in their lives. Drita relays the news that Lee will not be transferred to a prison in Brooklyn. Renee outlines her father’s plea deal, and she is relieved that the other people that Junior affected didn’t get much time. Renee has also scheduled the meeting between Drita and Karen Gravano for the following day. Drita is willing to go so the pair can move forward, but she doesn’t want Karen rehashing the past. Good luck with that!
Just as season 2 of Mob Wives is winding down, VH1 has announced that season 3 is a go! No word on which cast members are returning for sure, but I’d bet Drita D’avanzo, Karen Gravano, Renee Graziano and company will all be returning for more drama.
Season 2 of VH1′s hit reality series, “Mob Wives” is ending just as it began…on an emotional roller coaster as all the ladies end up in the same room for the first time this season. The explosive 2-part reunion special, hosted by The View’s Joy Behar, is set to air on May 20th and 27th and will reveal even more laughter, tears and drama than was already packed into the 17 episode season. And for the millions of “Mob Wives” fans out there, there will officially be a season 3 premiering in early 2013.
The big question will be – what about Big Ang? Now that she has landed her own spinoff, it’s hard to say.
