Nothing like coming home from a twelve hour work day to drama filled two-hour premiere of Mob Wives! I don’t know if it’s a punishment or Christmas all over again, but I’m going to go with the latter. Karen Gravano is living the dream, back in New York after a stint in Arizona, and she wants her teenage daughter to recognize how fortunate she is to live this lifestyle. Meanwhile, Renee Graziano is hoping to leave drama and negativity in the past. A cook-out at Karen’s house is just what she needs, even though both women realize that Karen’s daughter Karina is going to give them multiple coronaries. She’s way too pretty to be a teenager, but Renee hopes that Karen will allow Karina to mermaid model for her Mob Candy line. At least they can keep an eye on her that way.
Big Ang is recovering from throat cancer, and with her blonde hair, she looks like a boss. She is extremely grateful for her friends’ support during her surgery and following ordeal, but she credits husband Neil for being her rock. I love Ang, and I am thrilled to hear she’s cancer free (as the season airs, prayers are with her now). Her doctor touts an organic diet and exercise…oh, and she needs to quit smoking. It’s hard. Also difficult? Drita D’Avanzo’s household. She’s juggling having growing girls and her husband home from the clink. While she’s thrilled to have the balance of a normal family, she wants her daughters to realize how far she’s come. Drita takes them on a tour of the projects where she grew up so they appreciate the beautiful home and pool they are fortunate enough to have. She’s worked terribly hard, and she wants her daughters to appreciate the struggle she’s had to become the woman she is today. Of course, a book about her life is the next step in her empire…if she can convince her husband Lee that it’s not disloyal to their lifestyle.

Well, what do you know!?! VH1 is finally getting a clue when it comes to drawn out series. Has the network finally realized that sometimes it’s better to end a show when the drama fades than to try to recreate manufactured drama with an old cast by bringing in newbies? No, I’m not talking about the Love & Hip Hop franchise…
Our favorite reality TV stars, such as Kathryn Dennis, Chelsea Houska, and Kyle Richards, love to show off their adorable kids and family pics on social media. It’s tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the cutest photos from the past few weeks.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
I smell a rat! Or at least, I smell the fragrance of a group of ladies who love to toss around that word! What would that scent be? Virginia Slims, vodka, and prison waiting rooms, perhaps? I know what it doesn’t smell like in 2016…Philadelphia or Natalies. That’s right, folks! Mob Wives is returning, and it’s getting back to basics.
The VH1 reality hit is scheduled to debut its sixth season in January, and the network is relying on the series’ OGs to bring the drama. Throughout the past seasons, we’ve seen Drita D’avanzo and Karen Gravano go from trying to kill one another (literally) to burying the hatchet (and the plates, and the chairs, and anything else that could be used as a weapon). Renee Graziano has battled personal demons–and all of her friends and co-stars–and demands the utmost loyalty to the point it causes her paranoia. Big Ang is always the fun-loving glue that keeps this group from imploding. Also, Carla Facciolo is returning as a full time cast member…we knew she couldn’t stay away for long!
