Meet VH1’s ‘Mob Wives': Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano, Drita D’avanzo & Carla Facciolo!

Posted Thu, October 17, 2013 10:00am EDT

Most of these ladies believe a squealer deserves nothing but death — that’s the Mafia way! And that’s how they were raised!

What do you do when your notorious last name defines who you? Well for the cast of VH1’s new reality series Mob Wives, name, heritage and status are everything — especially on Staten Island! For stars Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano, Drita D’avanzo and Carla Facciolo allegiance to your mob family spells life or death!

Meet the cast of Mob Wives:

Renee Graziano: Daughter of Anthony Graziano, reputed consigliere of the Bonanno crime family. Renee is divorced from another alleged gangster named Junior. She’s trying to get away from the life of the streets so that she can raise her son AJ in a decent fashion, but is hard pressed because the mob is all that she has ever known.

Karen Gravano: Daughter of Sammy “The Bull” Gravano, former Gambino family underboss and federal informant — one of the men primarily responsible for bringing down the late Gambino boss John Gotti. Karen moved to Arizona with her family when they entered the witness protection program, but she’s returning to Staten Island to face her past. Will she be able to live down her father’s traitorous ways?

Drita D’avanzo: Married to Lee D’avanzo, rumored to be a leader among the new generation of the Bonanno and Colombo families. Lee is in prison for armed bank robbery. Drita is trying to figure out if she’s going to keep her family together or run, so that she can raise her two young daughters far away from the dangers of her husband’s business. Carmela Soprano anyone?

Carla Facciolo: Thought she married a man who made his money as a stockbroker, but then Carla’s husband Joey Ferragamo was arrested in a boiler-room scam. With Joey behind bars, Carla tells her young children that daddy’s away at work!

Wow these women & I say that loosely need to act like ladies, quit cussing & smacking each other around. Renee should never had that body lift, it’s too dangerous. She should just exercise & go to weight watchers. If she wants her son Jr to grow up in a better environment she needs to look at herself clean up her act. All these ladies are attractive physically until they open their mouths

I think all the women have something in common with everyday women. I don’t think that they are as bad as they want the viewers believe. If they were they would not want us, (the viewers) to see that. I like the show very much and I couln’t wait til they return to TV. Now that they have returned I realize they started where they left off and I love it!

I saw Renee, get out of her car and enter the house that is shown on the series as HER HOME untrue it is a rental for the show, so where is the REAL in REALITY … And how do these women who do not work ,live so well gym, spa, fancy dinners in high end places. Cars, diamonds , furs. If the show is paying to make their lives look so enhanced what was their lives prior to this show. None of them look like they know where most family members of jailed inmates know where the food stamp office is. Only in America baby only in America can we the public make trash look so good

I just watched the show and that person Rene was buying a fur. What is wrong with that person? (I won’t call her a woman because she acts like a man.) NOBODY wears fur except extremely cruel and ignorant people. I will no longer view this show. Mob Wives, come on. When did we start celebrating criminals?

What a heap of trash this show is. Just like the Staten Island Dumps itself. Another Mob show to bring disgrace to Italians everywhere. These women are losers.

who cares??????????? they’re not all italian…matter of fact they r not italian at all…none of them were born in italy so it’s not a disgrace to italian.. two of them are married to ricans and one girl is from albania, so where do you come off saying a disgrace to italians.
