Even worse for Renee, her ex-husband Hector “Junior” Pagan is the one responsible for helping put her father back in jail. If you recall, the NY Post broke the news last December that Junior had become a FBI informant and had been secretly taping his conversations with Renee’s dad.
Junior is said to have flipped for the FBI and DEA last summer while he was facing a long prison term for armed robbery. He then agreed to wear a wire and record conversations with his ex-father-in-law. Those recordings reportedly caught Renee’s dad Anthony instructing Junior to collect a $150,000 loan shark debt from an unidentified man.
Both Junior and Anthony, 71, were arrested following a raid last November, before Junior was ultimately exposed as an informant.
Renee revealed in a recent interview that she no longer knows of Junior’s whereabouts. Even worse and probably more crushing for Renee, one has to wonder if Junior’s whole attempt to reconcile and move back in with her was simply a ruse to get closer to her father and help turn him in to the authorities.
As for Renee, her sister and show creator Jennifer Graziano told VH1 on Saturday: “Renee is suffering from complete mental exhaustion, emotional strain and physical pain due to the recent publicity regarding our father, Anthony Graziano. She is being stabilized at Staten Island University Hospital.”
Renee still remains in the hospital as she tweeted both last night and this morning. She wrote last night: “4 the gossip’n flippn floppin around. I’m laid up in a hospital bed unAble 2 c the shw or help figure out whts up!! Atay tuNed.”
And before she was hospitalized, Renee made a series of tweets about the situation. The tweets have now been deleted but a screenshot is below courtesy of VH1. On a lighter note, the Big Ang mania continues! In fact, a fan recently got a tattoo of Big Ang and a photo of that tat is below as well!
