Last night’s episode of Love & Hip Hop was a hodgepodge of car shopping, conversations with Chrissy’s aunt Cookie and cat fights. Chrissy still struggles with the status of her relationship with Jim, while Yandy introduces an interloper with some awesome hair-pulling skills.
Jim Jones is buying me a car at the Audi dealership looking for his first white car (he lost a bet) and mocking Chrissy’s reaction when she finds out about his new purchase. It is a beautiful car, fit for a hustler. Jim’s words, not mine. His friend promises to get the bleeped ready (after much rewinding I am going to definitively type he said he’d get the “puff puff” ready) so they can christen the car on the ride home. That gorgeous car won’t even be off the lot before it reeks of marijuana.

With the premiere of Mob Wives Season 2 right around the corner — VH1 is unveiling their newest wife, Ramona Rizzo, in a new video introducing her to fans!
In the video, the sassy but pretty Ramona promises the mafia imperative — loyalty — and warns these biatches she doesn’t like stuck up people. “I am a person that will be there to protect their friends,” Ramona asserts. “I’m a person that’s loyal to their friends. If someone around me is getting hurt, then I take on that obligation. Nobody in this life is better than the next, so don’t demonstrate it in front of me because I’m going to have to put you in your place.”
The mother of four, who is good friends with Renee Graziano andKaren Gravano is excited to be part of the upcoming season, but there were definitely some things from last season that ruffled her feathers! “I didn’t like the bullsh*t,” she explains. “I didn’t like the fact that Drita [D'avanzo]thought that she could dismiss Karen’s past with her husband. I didn’t like the fact that Drita felt that she needed to belittle Karen on TV.” Uh oh…
“I don’t want to surround my self with people that everything that come out of their mouth is hogwash,” Ramona warns. “Hogwash, bullsh*t and nonsense doesn’t impress me. It makes me sick. I don’t like to waste my time. My time is too valuable and she’s a waste of my time.”
Ramona is definitely not afraid of a tussle with Drita and she has some choice words for brass knuckles D’avanzo! “Maybe I’m on the show because Drita needs a friggin check,” Ramona clarifies. “I’m not trying to be a bitch. I’m the girl who can back it up with my mouth and back it up with my fist. Anybody that comes in my path or tries to stop me and tries to hurt me, I’m taking it real personal.”
Well, Ramona seems like an uhhh… exciting addition to this cast! You can check out the video of Ramona below!
As for Drita, she is well aware that Ramona is not her biggest fan! “Ramona and I don’t like each other,” Drita reveals. “Ramona is Karen’s friend. She doesn’t like what happened between Karen and I, and sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong.”
In other Mob Wives news, Renee is up to her old plastic surgery antics! This time the over-the-top mafia princess got a butt lift, butt cheek definition as well as a tummy tuck!
According to TMZ, Renee spent $30,000 on the new assets five months ago! Renee will be unveiling her new body in a stripper pole themed spread for Mob Candy magazine! And spread is the operative word because Renee is letting it ALLLLL hang out!
Renee graces the cover of the latest issue of the mag looking very saucy and ready for action and the magazine told TMZ that Renee “shot like a pro.” Maybe she’s back on prisonmatch.com or something… Photos from Renee’s scandalous photoshoot along with her magazine cover is below! It may or may not be NSFW!
Mob Wives Season 2 airs on VH1 Jan. 1 at 8/9c.

THOUGHTS ON RAMONA – GOOD ADDITION TO THE CAST OR TOO MUCH DRAMA? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF RENEE’S NEW BODY AND HER PHOTOSHOOT?

Without a doubt, the ladies of Love & Hip Hop definitely know how to turn up the heat where drama is concerned. Lately, it’s been a clash of the musical egos between the former First Lady of 50 Cent’s G Unit Olivia Longott and Latin music sensation and model Somaya Reece.
In a recent VH1 blog, Olivia admits, “I took a lot of heat [on a past episode] because of my attitude toward Somaya. What people need to understand: I’ve made bad decisions in my career, but what I will say is that someone saw the talent in me. Say what you wanna, that I didn’t blow up, that I’m wack, or love me, but the fact is, I was signed to Clive Davis as the first act on J Records, and also traveled the world with 50.” That’s a pretty decent resume, I’d say.
“But don’t get it twisted,” she continues. “I know I’m starting over, doing it alone, but I won’t ever say Somaya and I are on the same level, because I don’t think she has much talent. That’s not hate, I’m allowed to have my opinion.” Opinions, hate… what’s the difference on these shows?
While Olivia applauds her cast mate’s willingness to work she believes the only thing Somaya has in her favor is the show itself. She reveals, “Her work ethic is insane and of course a TV show kinda evens [the] playing field, but reality is, if Love & Hip Hop didn’t exist, this conversation wouldn’t ever come up, so I get that too. Not too mention the lies she’s told on my manager, but hey, that’s for another day…” Mee and Yow!
And if one series isn’t enough, it looks like Love & Hip Hop may be getting its own spin-off on VH1, an insider tells Sister2Sister. Because the show is doing so well, the network is hoping to double the popularity with a similar show based in Atlanta and starring rapper Diamond.
The same source reveals that fellow Atlanta rapper Rasheeda and Rici, who served as Yung Joc’s former assistant are also being approached about potentially starring in the series. While nothing is set in stone, it is rumored that how Diamond will be portrayed is a source of contention. While Diamond’s publicist wants her to appear polished on the show, producers are calling for the rapper to totally be herself while the cameras are rolling. If the producers get their way, “Diamond would definitely be the Chrissy [Lampkin]” of the spin-off, the insider promises.
Regardless whether the two sides can come to an agreement, one thing is for certain, says the source. “New York don’t have nothing on Atlanta.”

Last night’s Love & Hip Hop was filled with everything it should have been: a family feud between Jim Jones’ loud lady and rapping mother, Fab’s exes getting slightly friendly and, of course, Kimbella’s hair getting up close and personal with a candle wick. Priceless!
The episode begins with Chrissy Lampkin and Jim Jones discussing her chat with Yandy Smith over the ladies’ recent blow-up. Chrissy tells Jim that she feels like she could be a better manager for Jim than Yandy is. Poor Jim. He can barely get through his interview without looking like a kid off of his ADD meds… the last thing he needs is for his lady and manager to be feuding. He offers to let Chrissy help him design some coats for his collection instead. Chrissy’s on board until they pair gets in a tiff over her cut of the check. Jim laughs, saying that Chrissy is “[messing] up his concentration.” What did I just say about ADD? Those who have it can certainly spot it!

Mob Wives is baaaack! Vh1 just released the poster and teaser clip for Season 2 and all I can say is YES! Oh sweet glorious television Gods — Thank you! I love these bleepin ladies!
As we recently reported all four of the ladies are returning and the drama will be as crazy as ever! Especially with the introduction of a new mafia princess!
In the off season the hell raisers in heels of Staten Island have been busy, busy little bees. Renee Graziano has been getting nipped, tucked and toxed. Oh and her father Anthony Graziano has been sent back to prison on extortion charges as reported by the Staten Island Live News.
She’s also rekindled things with Junior (aka Hector Pagan Jr), recently arraigned on allegations that he and a crew robbed a card game run by the Bonanno crime family. A photo of Renee and Junior leaving a Federal Courthouse in Brooklyn is below.
Carla Facciolo is back together with her estranged husband Joseph Ferragamo and has called off the divorce. Hopefully he’ll remain out of prison and they can stay happily married.
Karen Gravano is still hard at work on her book which according to the M.O.B. Wives blog is titled MobDaughter and is slated to be released in February 2012 — right in the middle of Season 2! A photo of Karen attending a publishing meeting for the book is below, a mock-up of the book cover is behind her in the pic!
As for ol’ Drita “Brass Knuckles” D’avanzo she’s been spotted hanging out with Jersey Shore‘s infamous Snooki! Oh lawd, the thought of their antics is causing me heart palpitations! Drita recently posted some pictures of the two of them on her Facebook page. A photo of Snookers and Drita is below. Right after these were taken the two did tequila shots until punching random people in the head seemed like a good idea, then got leopard print tattoos, flashed some people, bought a fur and danced on a bar. Ok, I made that part up, but I imagine that’s what happened.
The most exciting news for the new season of Mob Wives is the introduction of a NEW WIFE! Yes, Karen is the odd girl out no more as her ‘cousin’ is joining the cast in an effort to make Renee’s overly Restylane’d head explode!
According to the NY Post, Ramona Rizzo (pictured below) has been added to the cast! Ramona is a divorced mother of four currently living in New Jersey, but was raised in Staten Island along side Renee and Karen.“Karen and Ramona grew up together, did their first Communion together and slept over each other’s houses,” Jennifer Graziano — Renee’s sister and the creator and producer of the show – reveals. “They’re really close and call each other ‘cousins.’ ”
“They’re probably tighter than real blood cousins, but they’re not related, ” she adds.
Ramona has quite the organized crime legacy! Her grandfather was Benjamin “Lefty Guns” Ruggiero, a member of the Bonnano crime family who was a subject of the movie “Donnie Brasco” and played by Al Pacino!
Ironically Ramona’s legendary grandfather was also somewhat of a traitor who “unwittingly” played a role in the downfall of the mob when he brought undercover FBI agent Joe Pistone (Johnny Depp‘s character in the movie) into the crime family. Ramona’s grandfather died of cancer in prison in 1994 and was never punished by the mob for his accidental nark.
Ramona has been Tweeting up a storm since the news leaked that she was participating in the show and even tweeted a photo of her and bestie Karen! A photo of the pseudo cousins is below!
Is anyone else a tad bit frightened about the drama shizzstorm we’re in for this season? Watch out Real Housewives of New Jersey, the real gangsters of reality TV are claiming their turf!
Mob Wives season 2 will premiere Jan. 1 (8/7c) on Vh1. Are you ready to stab somebody with a stiletto?! See the teaser below!

The infamous Anna Bensoncontinues to live up to her infamy according to a shocking new report!
TMZ reports Anna, star of VH1′s Baseball Wives, actually threatened her costars with… wait for it… a 12-inch dildo.
Sources tell TMZ that during a recent filming, Anna — wife of former Mets pitcher Kris Benson — got into an argument with Cheri Knoblauch. Okay, not so strange. Things however took a turn for the cray-cray when Anna pulled out a stun gun and set it on a table in a threatening manner.
Okay, still sorta normal. Well, Anna then proceeded to get more creative when she yanked out a 12-inch dildo from her purse and started swinging it at others! So many questions, so little time.
TMZ adds that some of the show’s staffers are now threatening to quit over Anna’s insane behavior! The show’s executives have been forced to step in to try to contain Anna. Wonder if Anna has met Jackie Christie yet? Both ladies seem to have a lot in common!
Speaking of Baseball Wives, the series premiered last night on VH1. Wasn’t all too impressed as something about it was giving me the Real Housewives of Miami. Perhaps it will get better as the season moves along.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ANNA’S CRAY-CRAY BEHAVIOR? DID YOU WATCH THE PREMIERE? WHAT DID YOU THINK?
The season premiere of Baseball Wives is right around the corner and if you’ve been dying to see what all the excitement is about, wait no longer as Vh1 is giving us our first glimpse of the show in the form of a supertrailer, titled of all cliff hangers: “Tears, Manipulations, And Bikinis”! I’m hooked already!
The new series will follow the lives of five wives, ex-wives and girlfriends of professional Baseball players as they struggle to balance relationships, friendships and chaos. The Baseball Wives are: Anna Benson (wife of retired Arizona Diamondbacks’ Pitcher Kris Benson), Tanya Grace (ex-wife of retired Chicago Cubs’ First Baseman Mark Grace), Chantel Kendall (ex-wife of Kansas City Royals’ Jason Kendall), Brook Villone (wife of Ron Villone) and Jordana Lenz (linked to no particular athlete in particular – but I’m sure she has an MLB ex or two somewhere).
“The baseball wife community is sort of this rare little club. It’s very complicated,” explains Chantel, who I am betting is the cast’s resident wild child based on reports of a previous love triangle involving Chantel, her ex-husband and rocker Rod Stewart‘s son, Sean!
Anna has already promised plenty of explosions along with some pretty serious mean girl behavior (“skank possum,” anyone?). I predict Anna will occupy the Evelyn Lozado role of this franchise, as in she is capable of some hard-core backstabbing and some unfortunate sexytimes TMI!
The trailer tells us that in the baseball community the wives face an “85% divorce rate” to a “90% chance that your husband’s going to cheat on you,” add that to the often long-distance relationships and the ladies are faced with some pretty insurmountable odds. Oh and the dynamic between the ladies themselves? 100 % D to the Rama!
Watch the exciting supertrailer below and get ready for some fly balls! Baseball Wives premieres on Vh1 Wednesday, November 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The press release promises the second season of Mob Wives will pick up where the first left off – with each cast member dealing with major personal life issues.
“The rift between Karen and Drita is far from over – will they ever be able to ‘bury the hatchet’? Renee goes under the knife for major plastic surgery that may have some unexpected consequences, while also contemplating her future with her ex-husband Junior. Drita is considering her options when it comes to leaving her husband Lee – while Carla’s relationship with her estranged husband Joe may take an unexpected twist. And, of course, everyone wants to know what’s in Karen’s soon-to-be-released book – the one she moved back to New York to write!”
Even better, the network also announced that a new spin-off Mob Wives: Chicago will debut in the Spring 2012! Yes Mob Wives: Chicago will introduce a new cast of women suffering the stronzi and agita of their Mafiosi connections.
“Our viewers connected so strongly with our New York cast that we were skeptical about trying to repeat that success, said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Production. “But once we met these ladies from Chicagoland heard their truly unbelievable stories, we knew that viewers would become just as captivated as we did. These women’s life experiences may be far different from our own, but their current struggles to stand on their own two feet are relatable to everyone.”
So there you have it folks! Mob Wives season 2 will return Jan. 1 at 8/7c while the new Chicago spinoff will debut in Spring of 2012!
