'Mob Wives' Star Renee Graziano's Family Ties — Ex-Husband Arrested & Father In Prison!

While Renee has managed to stay somewhat low profile prior to her role on the new VH1 show, the men in her life have done anything but!

Renee Graziano is, by all appearances, the most daunting of the fearsome assemblage of women that make up the cast of Mob Wives. It comes as somewhat of a surprise then that Renee, by all accounts, has stayed on the right side of the law her entire life. This is not however the case for her father, Anthony Graziano, and her ex-husband, Junior.

Renee’s father Anthony was a high ranking member of La Cosa Nostra according to the Federal Government and is currently serving time in North carolina. In March of 2002, Anthony was indicted for charges including bookmaking, murder of a rival gangster, and conspiracy to commit murder in New York. That same month he was indicted in Florida on charges including illegal gambling and investment fraud. he was sentenced to eleven years in Florida, nine in new York and is serving two sentences concurrently, slated to be released in early 2012.

Renee’s ex-husband Junior meanwhile was arrested in January of 2011 in the largest mafia bust in New York City history, bringing in 125 suspects. The exact charge is unknown but will likely be revealed as the show was filming at the time of his arrest.

The business woman in Renee has luckily seen the bright side of this all — she’s started a greeting card company called Jail Mail.

For what its worth I love to see your show becuase it show’s women that are real and do go thru some real issues. The only thing is that all of them have gorgeous houses MAN! And always have money, are constantly going out to eat at expensive resturantes, and so forth. So with that bieng said, I would say that its not all that bad for them. Just a little uncomfortable in some cases. But I love you guys, Drita is a trip yo, I love her!

What about Renee’s sister–isn’t she the show’s creator? Does her dad talk to her?
