Watch out, Snooki—you’re not the only rabble-rousing reality TV star whose man-hungry antics are shaking up a beachside community!

Meet Eva Levitis, the 56-year-old star of Lifetime new reality TV series Russian Dolls, whose antics are unnerving daughter-in-law Marina Levitis!

“Overall we have a good relationship, and are very close” Marina tells in an exclusive interview. “But at this point, she is single and she being like a child. She’s starting to date, she wants to date younger guys.”

Says Marina, whose husband Michael runs the iconic Rasputin restaurant-nightclub in the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn,  “She is the Snooki [of Russian Dolls!]. The younger kids [on the show] are more reserved and more aware of the cameras, but she is just all out! And she goes on dates, and to a matchmaker looking for sexual relationships. She only wants a 35-year-old!”

While Marina scoffs at the antics of her mother-in-law, she of course loves her, and takes it in stride. “Overall, our relations are good. Obviously we don’t hate each other. The funny thing, is that it’s all a role reversal!”

Meanwhile, Eva tells that she’s on the hunt for a man who is “cultural” and “intelligent.” As for date night, she says she likes “French movie, independent movies…someone who can talk and have a conversation. I love dancing and going out, and seeing the world. I love action!” Eva also says she’s more amenable to dating a fellow Russian-American, since “it’s easier with a person who is from the same area, has the same culture.”

Russian Dolls airs on Lifetime on Thursdays at 11:30 p.m./10:30c
