You have to hand it to Mob Wives'Renee Graziano. The hardened reality star basically unraveled during the demise of her marriage and the realization that her husband had turned state's evidence on her father. As you know, VH1 cameras were there to capture it all.
Thankfully, Renee was able to pull herself up by her bootstraps and get the help she needed to overcome the addictions she used to numb her pain. Not wanting to return to the person she once was, Renee continues to take measures to better herself.
The creator and producer of the show has always dreamed of owning her own television empire (watch out Kris Jenner!) – a veritable mafia of her own, if you will - and has big plans to not only expand the reality show franchise, but venture into scripted TV, food and wine, and even movies!
Jennifer says she always knew she wouldn't be a mob wife herself, but growing up in the lifestyle and around those women she was fascinated. And circumstances sort of decided for her since she was "book smart as well as street smart".
"I knew from a young girl that I did not want to marry a man and stay at home and take care of the family," Jennifer shared with The Examiner. "Starting from kindergarten I was up (and ready to go to school) before my mother and my sister (Renee)," she recalls. Translation: Jennifer inherited her father's head for business but was too smart to end up in the mob herself!
You know, we often warn tweens and teens of the dangers of over exposure on social media, but reality stars need a major lesson as well. I'm not even talking about sexting or posting pictures on Instagram that I can't ever unsee (I'm looking at you, Coco). I'm just talking about plain ol' common sense, you said you were going to be one place and then you posted pictures of yourself in another.
Apparently new Mob Wivescast memberAlicia DiMichele Garofalo doesn't realize that "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" ONLY if you're not posting pictures of yourself in Sin City every five seconds. This is especially true if you told a judge that the only reason you'd need to travel outside of the New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania area to which an arrest kept you quarantined is to visit your son in college in West Virginia. Details, schmeatails.
In a new ad for her Mob Candy Jewelry line, Renee took an even more nude approach and let the girls hang way, way out! "I aim I shoot & trust me I NEVER MISS!!!" Renee announced on Instagram to advertise the photo. "Beware of this#prettypoolshark," she added. Oh I'm scared alright…

Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Reality TV stars turned out for the MTV VMAs last night, while not too many other celebrities/musicians bothered.
Melissa Gorga,Joe Gorga, Snooki, Farrah Abraham, a few Mob Wives, and more were snapped on the red carpet before the event and also at a few of the after parties going on around NYC. But if you watched the VMAs, you know that barely any big name stars were in attendance. I tuned in and lost count of how many times the cameras scanned the audience and only focused in on Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Will Smith and family, Lady Gaga and One Direction. That's it. No Kardashians cheering on their beloved Yeezus, although I swore I saw Kylie Jenner sitting behind the Smith fam. It didn't feel like they gave away very many awards, either. The whole thing was just "off". I will give props to Justin Timberlake – he's the real deal and performed his ass off!
Did you watch the show last night? I think I would've been more entertained watching Melissa Gorga perform than a few of the duds they had on.
