'Mob Wives' Drama Alert: Drita D'avanzo V. Karen Gravano — Tension Over Drita's Husband!

Fri, April 22, 2011 10:52am EST by 9 Comments

Karen and Drita have been friends since they were 19, but when Karen broke up with Lee and went into witness protection, Drita and Lee got involved and eventually tied the knot!

Karen Gravano has come back to Staten Island to face her past, and she has do deal with the fact that her ex-boyfriend Lee D’avanzo is married to her Mob Wives co-star Drita D’avanzo. Because of this, some major drama is going to come up between the two women!

“There is tension,” a source close to the women tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “It has taken its toll, where neither of the girls thought it would.”

“But as things progressed, and with Karen being back from Arizona after all these years, she is realizing certain things,” continues the source. “It brought it back to the forefront.”

And even though Lee is not physically in the middle of things — he’s locked up in federal prison for a bank-robbery-related crime — “there is stuff you have to tune in [to VH1] to see,” says the source.

Despite questions, to this day, “Drita and Lee are still very much married,” says the friend. “She has her second thoughts every now and then, like anyone would after 12 years of marriage. But she is standing strong.”

With Lee away for another two to four years, Lee focuses on raising their two daughters — Aleeya, 9 and Gizelle, 3 — and also on staying in shape.

“Her father is a soccer coach at Fordham and was training her from a young age to play on the national team,” says the insider. “Since she was three years old she’s been doing push ups and jogging.”

Drita works out “more for stress release and for recreational proposes,” says the friend.

Karen is an IDIOT. Why on earth would she think it is more important to Drita that Drita be “Karen’s girl” than for Drita to be supportive of her husband, even if he’s a soon-to-be-ex, and their two girls.

Karen is sooo MOB LOL – like even if Karen disappears from Drita’s life, goes off with other men, gets preggers by yet ANOTHER man, that somehow Drita OWES Karen because she’s “Karen’s Girl”?


Drita has the right to marry whoever she wants – as long as Lee wasn’t WITH Karen when that happened, WTH is it to Karen

Karen has this MOB mentality that everyone is beneath her because she’s SOMEBODY being Sammy the Bull’s daughter

RealLifeLesson here Karen – no one gives a crap about your fat a$$

I hate Drita.
How can you down play Lee and Karen’s relationship.
I bet if Lee dumped you, you wouldn’t want any of your co-stars or friends with him.
That’s why Karen gets the last laugh. As Lee put it calling you a “dirty pu**y bi*ch. I fully doubt Karen would ever want Lee back, especially after such endearing words on your phone call with Lee. Drita you can’t even get a straight answer from Lee, he definately doesn’t respect you. That’s usually what happens when your a phony friend, men display their true feelings.DIRTY P B {lol}

i would love to see you say all this to Dritas face, i just have one question? karen, why now after so many years are you confronting Drita? If this was such a betrayal to you why didn’t she confront her/them right away, just sayin’ i like to take care of things hot off the plate, if it was me i wouldve handled it right away before they got engaged, married had 2 kids! new rules when kids are involved!!but most important and what makes me love Renee RESPECT something no one has anymore…

Before there is respect acts of loyalty must be shown..Drita has no loyalty to her friends.Lee cheated on her and her feelings were hurt.she couldn’t get to lee so she took it outon Karen.Yeah Karen slept around on lee,thats just cause she was smart enough to put her all in him.Good thing you don’t have much to get use too,being you’ve been a single mother your kids whole life.Move on both of you,Lee deserves neither of you.Drita better hope lee doesn’t already have a boyfriend on the low.alot of those mobsters were known for that.

I understand what your saying but I would not appreciate my friend dating an ex no matter what. As for hot off the plate… Witness protection ring a bell? I love Drita, don’t get me wrong but I think that was wrong of her and for not even reading the chapter. It was Karens way of letting her know it was all good. This is a book about her life not her life with Lee.
