'Mob Wives' A Disgrace To Italian-Americans, Angry Staten Island Leader Says!

Wed, April 20, 2011 4:47pm EST by 104 Comments

‘Mob Wives’ is an insult to Italian-Americans and the residents of Staten Island, where the show is filmed, a local leader says! Do you agree?

VH1’s new hit reality series Mob Wives — which focuses on the lives of Cosa Nostra-related women Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano, Drita D’avanzo and Carla Facciolo — is riling up the Italian-American community of Staten Island. “I’ve seen it — It’s disgraceful,” Staten Island’s borough president, James Molinaro, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “It paints Staten Island and Italian-Americans in a bad light.”

“It’s detrimental because people will think this is what Staten Island is made of,” he says. “I’m Italian — and this is bad for our doctors, our lawyers, the people who came from Italy to build their lives.”

James can’t believe that so many people actually tune in to watch the show. “It’s beyond me that people would watch this garbage,” he says. “There’s no story or function. It’s just a bunch of people standing around cursing. It’s like watching a bunch of juveniles standing on a corner cursing. I could go to any rap song and get the same thing.”

So what about the cast of Jersey Shore — do Snooki and DJ Pauly D misrepresent the Italian community? “At least Jersey Shore is taking place in Jersey,” says James. “This is taking place in Staten Island. The whole idea of it I find offensive. Not only as an Italian, but as a Staten Islander, I’m offended.”

“How can you be proud of this?” he asks. “If it was in the movies, I wouldn’t pay 25 cents to see it.”

“It’s definitely not a true reflection of Italians or the true people that live on Staten Island that go to work each day and live here,” he adds.

I love, love, love this show. Like them, I’m proud to be Italian. Glad to see the ladies have put their bad issues behind them. Loved the scene with Drita’s daughter when she covered her eyes, when mommy was modeling for her. She is so adorable. What a blast it would be to party with the girls. Every episode is great. I have watched them all several times. Looking forward to the new episodes.

Some of these comments are so funny. Honestly if you dont live in NY you have nothing to say about Italians or Staten Island. Coming from an Italian family that lives in NY (Long Island…many many italians) this show (nor jersey shore and RHONJ) does not offend me lol get over yourselves. Oh an please go up to an Italian and tell them they are an Arab or black that will go over big! yea some Italians may have it in their blood but majority do not (families that have been Italian all the way back). Its funny that some of you say oh this show makes Italians look bad yet your trash talking Italians. Being Italian is great, family is everything, huge dinners parties and holidays, so if you dont know then shut up.

“Italian from all the way back”, LOL! There’s no such thing as an Italian “from all the way back”. The country didn’t even exist until 1861. It’s been overrun by so many different groups to suggest there is any such thing as “Italian from way back” is an absurd statement. The modern day nation state of Italy is as different from ancient Rome as the Italian language is from Latin. The southern French are actually more similar genetically to the people of ancient Rome than the Italians. Northern Italians are generally Germanic, southern ones Latin. Sicily, which most mobsters are from, is a semi-autonomous region that is only part of Italy by an odd accident of politics. It could just as easily been a separate country, in which case nobody would think of Sicilians (who are ethnically more Arab, Greek, and German than Latin) as any more ‘Italian’ than the Spanish. Most mainland Italians can’t understand the Sicilian dialect, which is heavily influenced by Arabic). Ditto for Sardinia.

By the way, blacks never invaded any part of Europe. The Moors did, but the Moors are swarthy caucasians, some of whom may have black admixture. They are ethnically a mix of Arab, Berber, Latin and Greek. This idea that Italy or even Sicily is a mulatto nation is really ignorant. As a black man I can tell you most blacks I know who say that stuff do so because they want to feel somehow related to Italians, who they think are cool because of mob movies. Retarded. (I notice Karen loves her some black men though.)

Also, if family is so important to Italians, why these bizatches all divorced? LOL! Y’all some ignorant mofos up in here.

The show is not focussing on the lives of the citizens in staten island. The show is reflecting the lives of the people on the show. They do go through these things in real life. Some of it is enhanced but forreal though, it’s reality tv… I think the show is pretty good personally.

Dollface is too anal, as is ‘J’ regarding typos. Many people post using smartphone, even the best of which have notoriously bad autocorrect that results in odd typos. It’s not a big deal.

Now, as for this show, the problem with the show isn’t that it’s ‘mean to Italians’. In my experience, Italians have a pretty thick skin and seen’t given to PC whining. If any group could use a little humbling, it’s them.

The problem with the show is that it glamourizes and sanitizes what can only be called evil, ethnocentric killers. As someone said, it’s like something out of “Natural Born Killers”. The brutish, materialistic, stupid, foulmouthed wives and children of con artists, bank robbers, and killers should not be presented like the wives and children of rockstars. It’s just WRONG and sends a terrible, TERRIBLE message. It’s not bad for Italians, it’s bad for EVERYBODY.

These people have real victims in real life that have had their loved ones killed and lives ruined; it’s not a Soprano episode. You’re blurring fantasy with reality in a disturbing way. It’s not just bad TV, it’s a milestone in the sad decay of moral standards.

Oh my gosh all these comments are hilarious! I do have to agree with Dollface in the fact that you all need to learn to spell! At any rate why is it crap like this always ends up in a race thing? Blacks are better, no Italians are better, hell no Latinos are better…. WTH?? There’s so few pure bloods of any race out there any more it’s comical to see people fighting over it. It’s a reality show, if you don’t like it don’t watch it! And if you’re stupid enough to think all Italians are like the women on this show or like Jersey Shore or RHONJ then you need help. They pick extremes to be on this show because it’s what people want to see! No one wants to watch your average Italian living an average ho hum life. So really if you’re that up in arms over it go shut the damn TV off! And quit whining about what a terrible injustice the show is!

YOUR OWN LIVEs….(SMH) LOL! It’s entertainment people, you can make the CHOICE not to tune in.”Uh Duh” Unhook yourself from the box and relax, hell we may all need to do that at times. De-Program yourselves, Reboot and Get Your Minds Right! I don’t agree with the glorification of any criminal lifestyle, but I also know that it is REALITY for some people no matter what the race is. I’m Black and I Love those who have the same Love for me, which I have felt in return from MANY cultures. There is good and bad in every race and Everyone has the power of having an OPINION but Plllease People Please Stop being so condescending… “SHALLOW and NARROW” minded. I wish you all well!

I find this show oddly intriguing. It’s train wreck quality is extremely captivating, not unlike the barbaric comments I’ve read under this article. Spell check is available for all browsers. Please find and download your relevant plug-in.

As a former Staten Islander and one who was NEVER fond of the place, I too worried that this show would be a terrible misinterpretation of what Islanders are like and would result in widespread ridicule from the ignorant among us. However, that has thus far not been the case.

That said, I do agree wholeheartedly that criminal lifestyles should not be glamorized. These women have stated on the show that people think that the mob is all about the glitz and they don’t realize the anguish it causes. Um… I do think it’s quite the reverse. The horrors of mob life are well documented and very much in the subconscious of society. When you’re deep inside of it is when it becomes difficult to identify the hardship.

No, these women are not model citizens. They’re hardly pretending to be. Besides, it’s Reality TV. Producers love to egg their stars on and set up scenarios to improve ratings. At the end of the day, it’s a show and these women have chosen to be exploited for profit.

I say, in the meantime, sit back with your box of popcorn, tune in and enjoy the sh!t-show. Otherwise, stay tuned for your latest O’Reilly Factor or Real Time with Bill Maher. Pick your poison. Stand by it. And stop telling everyone else what to watch instead.

They are not trying to represent the Italian American Community. They are representing the Italian Mob. If there are any people that think that all Italian Americans are in the MOB then they are just ignorant. Everyone knows by now that not all Italians are in the mob or that they condone the actions of the Mob. The show shows their families lives and what they went through and are still going through. I really do not think that the Dr’s, lawyers, etc… will be affected by this show in the eyes of the world (I think their reputations will still be intact after the end of the show). Just cause you are Italian American does not mean that the whole world will think that you are ALL part of the Mob. Get off your SOAPBOX and live your lives.

The show glamourizes hoodlums, as though they are movie stars (not that movie stars should be glamourized either mind you, but it’s better than glamourizes the wives/children of mob thugs and wannabees). That IS something for civilized people to worry about. It sends a terrible message. The problem with the show own’t that it’s anti-Italian (a silly, PC objection), it’s that it suggests the hangers on of criminal lowlifes are somehow leading an enviable existence; they are not. It’s like bragging about being the daughter of a Crip or Blood or child molester. Mobsters and mob wannabees ought not be looked up to. (Two of the guys in the show, Rita’s husband Lee D’Avanzo and Carl’s husband Joe Ferragamo, are mob wannabees, not made men; one is a rescidivist bank robber and the other a pump and dump stock scammer.)

I’m from staten island, and honestly to say that the whole island acts like four women on a reality show is beyond stupid and ignorant. I guess that means that all black people are just like the wives on hip hop wives or basketball wives. Or all the blondes on Real House wives of Orange County represent every woman in California. To pigeon hole an entire nationality, race, religion or skin color based on a ridiculous reality show is beyond moronic! You people are really need to be educated! LMAO!!!

Are you kidding me? It definitely represents the Staten Island culture. I moved to NYC and resided on Staten Island for 13 years. Granted S.I (as we call it) is diverse in some areas, but it is also a breeding ground for the mob’s criminal activity. Molinaro needs to knock it off because he’s connected to the mob as well. He’s full of s**t. Trust me he doesn’t need to hear the language from a “rap song”. Puhleeze, he can easily find it in his own circles!!!

These women are not attractive; in fact, they all have a very masculine quality. What does this suggest about their husbands? You have to be at least a little bit gay to marry women who talk like malerr construction workers.

Italians are kind of pathetic, aren’t they? I mean, there’s a BLACK president, yet these turds are still engaged in ethnic tribalist criminality, like the immigrants of 100 years ago. I am so thankful that at least, no matter what life throws at me, I’m not Italian. We ought to give them affirmative action or a candy bar or something; they’re so pathetic. The Arab invaders of the middle ages killed their gene pool; they’re more like North Africans than Romans now.

I’ve watched some of it out of curiousity since I’m from Staten Island and it’s interesting to see places you are familiar with on TV.

These woman are hideous skanks and as others have noted, you’d have to be at least a little gay to be attracted to Drita the foul mouthed boxer, Renee the offensive lineman. I guess it’s no coincidence Drita’s husband Lee (a 40-something bank robber and drug dealer, NOT a real ‘made’ mobster, is the son of a mobster who was killed for being gay. Guess it runs in the family, probably inherited from their many Arab and North African ancestors). Lee also dated the very masculine Karen for 7 years.

Criminal lowlifes shouldn’t be glamorized on TV. This is almost as bad as that “Natural Born Killers” movie with the celebrity serial killers.

They should send the NAVY seals after these greasebalks like they do the other Arab terrorists.

Hey, if only Osama had shaved the beard and traded in the robe for a ginny tea, he could’ve easily hid himself amongst Staten Islands greasy hordes of brown bumbs.

To the couched wanna who said these ugly aging batches lea exciting lives: being the wife of a twice convicted bank robber (Lee D’Avanzo) own’t exciting or glamorous, just pathetic. You have to be pretty desperate to rob a bank – twice – and really stupid to get caught – twice. As far as wishing to be Italian or a monster – HA ha ha ha ha! Most Italians are so embarrassed they’re claiming be Hispanic or Arab (which a lot of them are, by the way – Arab that is). Between Jersey Shore and this train wreck, Italians are the laughing stock of the Western World. Savages.

First of all, Snookie isn’t Italian, it’s an adopted Chilean. Second, the show is a disgrace, but this whine “they’re being mean to Italians” bit pissed me off. It’s a disgrace because it makes stars out of stupid evil racist tribal people. Why any middle American type would like this show is beyond me; Italians generally despise anyone who isn’t Italian (or at least look Italian). They#re SUPER tribal and hate people darker (e.g. blacks, some Hispanics) AND lighter (e.g. Irish, WASPS, some Jews and Russians, etc.) than them (they call pale whites ‘farmers’). I’m from Staten Island and can tell you, this is an accurate depiction of both the Island and Italians. Ironically, whine Jim Molinari Isaac corrupt politician known to have mob ties.

Since this show aired everyone says “I know Karen she so and so cousin, I was at Mcdonalds and she walked in”. People are just jealous of her. People should think about what their saying she has a show, she’s a single parent, she’s not out robbing anyone, or threatening. leave her alone and the rest of the girls. the comments about Staten Island are ridiculous because they wish they could make the money karen and the rest are making and I say good for them. 99.9 percent of the time the girls including grown woman and men act just the way the mob wives are acting. So People get a life. and as far as Molinaro, he’s the biggest crook and his brother guy has more property on Staten Island then their on people on Staten Island. Get a life people. If you dont like it dont watch the show. Idiot , Jealous

Thank you. People seem to think that what they see on TV it means that it’s real. I take it for what it is and to me it is only entertainment. A show showing how these ladies live while their husband/fathers are in prison and how they raised their kids, how they can get together do stuff and everything else, that’s all. Too many people making stupid comments about italians and how they should be or not, please we the viewers are not stupid, well not all of us. Again, I thank you for this putting it in a way hopefully maybe the people who are complaining and taking this serious will probably see for themselves and well if not, well it’s their lost.

What you say is true, brother, but the name of the movie is not ‘”True Lies”, it’s “True Romance”. Yes, Italians are not white, they’re just the lightest light skinned blacks. That’s why Karen Gravanno got her a black man, and have a child with him (100% black child, btw). And Renee Graziano be down with Fitty Cent and the rappers, and she married a Puerto Rican (not “portorokin”, bro – LEARN TO SPELL!).

But I think for the most part, Italians is now out of they denial and generally prefer blacks and Hidpanic company to whites.
