I can’t believe it took me this long to realize how addicting Mob Wives really was. I’ve seen a few episodes here and there on TV…but I decided to watch the season in order online- dang these women are cray!! There’s so much drama between these 4 women, that I’m surprised how the editors pack everything into 45 minutes.
The reality show is basically about 4 women who have a connection to the mob- whether it be their fathers or husbands or boyfriends…one way or another they’re connected (or so they think).
Rene Graziano who is the daughter of some old mob guy…is definitely the craziest mob wife. Her ex husband ‘Junior’ is also involved in the mob. Renee has one son with Junior…the poor kid is stuck between to crazy parents.
There’s Karen Gravano whose father was the Underboss of the Gambino crime family…he later cooperated with the federal government. She returns to Staten Island from Arizona…because she’s decided to write a book about her life and feels she needs to get back into the Staten Island ‘mindset’.
Drita D’Avanzo is another loose canon. She’s not even Italian- she’s Albanian. She hooks up with Lee D’Avanzo (Karen’s exboyfriend)…she’s legit crazy and thinks she’s Michelle Rodriguez in Girl Fight. She threatens to kill anyone who messes with her…etc
Finally, you have the most normal mob wife Carla Facciolo who is the only one that actually accepted her husband for what he was….and decided to leave his ass. Technically, they’re still married- since he’s locked up she’s decided to move on with her life and start dating. They have 2 children together.
I think Season 2 premiered last night…I’m still catching up on old episodes. Be sure to check back here for updates from the new season!
