Renee Graziano: Why I'm Glad My Father & Ex Are Going To Jail

HollywoodLife.com spoke to Renee right before her father Anthony Graziano and the head of the Bonanno crime family headed to federal court to accept a plea deal and she says it just proves the ‘Mob Wives’ is real!

Renee Graziano‘s life hasn’t just been playing out on her VH1 reality show Mob Wives, it’s making national headlines. HollywoodLife.com had Renee in our NYC studios just hours before Vincent Badalamenti the head of the Bonanno crime family, her father Anthony Graziano, and other mob associates were to plead guilty to racketeering. All of this because Renee’s ex-husband Hector Pagan wore a wire and ratted on everyone!

“Actually this might sound a little cocky but I’m glad it’s playing out in national headlines,” Renee tells HollywoodLife.com. “Because people know this is real. You get a lot of remarks that this is staged. Listen, if I could get the government or anybody behind the scenes to get them to pinch 127 people and get my ex husband into a snitch we would be gazillionaires and everyone would want us!”

The recent episodes of Mob Wives show Renee learning her father is going to jail and then more recently that her ex-husband is responsible for ratting to the feds.

“From what I understand there are six men on the case and they all plead guilty on the case,” she says. “They’ve all taken a global plea which means you recognize it, you take it, there’s more time involved. The guidelines the feds go by is some point system which I don’t understand. What I do understand is you go on visits, you send money, and you love the person that is behind the wall. I don’t get involved in the legal stuff.”

Renee’s father Anthony is expected to get a sentence of three years, after having just served eight years for tax evasion, racketeering, and conspiracy to commit murder .

“No I’m not [going down to court],” she says. “Every time I’ve been to court there’s been too much attention. I don’t think it’d be good for the other familes. My father is fine with me and who I am, but the other families it’s not necessary.”

But Renee does want to reassure fans that this won’t affect the plot of Mob Wives season three.

“If everyone thinks this is all I have they are sadly mistaken,” she says. “That came, that blindsided all of us, no one was expecting that …this will not affect my story line and I have a lot more than Junior in my life.”

I feel for this woman. I have been in a relationship with the same type of person- one who would sell his mother for a pack of Cigs. You just want that person you love so much and that you have been there for ride or die style- then the pay back is this?? Jr. Is a monster!! I hope he knows Karma is a Bee-otch and he is due. Its one thing to snitch but to use the mother of your child….. Disgusting!

In the public eye or not. This is a painful situation. Who on God’s green earth would want to go through something like this? Renee you are like any mother out there. You just do what you gotta do to keep your kid safe. Keep your head up! I’ll be praying for you and your family. God Bless.
