Mob Wives star Hector Pagan Jr secretly taped conversations for the FBI against Renee Graziano's dad


The “Mob Wives” yesterday found out that one of the cast members has been wearing a wire for the FBI.
Not as a reality TV stunt. For real.
The ex-husband of “Wives” star Renee Graziano, Hector “Junior” Pagan, who was seen regularly on the hit reality series last year and was set to play a prominent role in the upcoming season, was reportedly flipped by the feds last summer.
And his first victim was no less than Bonanno crime family capo Anthony Graziano — the father of Renee and show creator Jennifer Graziano.
Pagan, a family associate, was arrested on Staten Island last week — in the midst of filming the series’ upcoming season — along with his former father-in-law.

THE WIRE: Renee Graziano’s ex-husband Hector (left) was revealed yesterday as a mob turncoat who’s secretly been taping her capo father, Anthony (right).
But yesterday the cast and crew learned from a report in the online mob newsletter ganglandnews.com that Pagan had been secretly taping conversations with the elder Graziano for the government.
It was a jolt of real-life drama for the show that has relied heavily on mob stereotypes and hair-pulling brawls.
“The first inclination is always to say, ‘Shut it down,’ ” a shaken Jennifer told The Post of the show yesterday.
“It is a reality show, and I knew this was going to be personal to me going into this,” she said. “But I didn’t know this was going to happen.”
According to reports, Pagan — who was looking at a long prison term for armed robbery for his role in allegedly sticking up a high-stakes poker game — agreed to wear a wire and record conversations with his ex-father-in-law.
The tape reportedly caught the elder Graziano instructing Pagan to collect a $150,000 loanshark debt from an unidentified man.
Graziano, 71, recently finished a substantial prison sentence when he was arrested at home last week.
Pagan — father of Renee’s 17-year-old son AJ, who also appears on the show — appeared in several episodes of the VH1 show last season and was slated to be a bigger character this season, Jennifer said.
In the first episode of the new season, set to begin Jan. 1, Pagan is shown pacing outside the federal courthouse in downtown Brooklyn, telling Renee via cellphone that he had been offered a deal by prosecutors on an earlier arrest.
The show has completed shooting seven of a scheduled 12 episodes and will incorporate yesterday’s real-life drama into its storyline, Jennifer said.
“We’re making a reality show, and this is the reality of what’s going on,” she said.
How is Renee reacting to the news?
“Renee is an open book and lets people into her life because she wants people to understand what she’s going through,” Jennifer replied.
The sisters claimed last year that their father had cut off all contact with them because he did not approve of the TV show.
Jennifer said her father is now “taking it as it comes.”
As for learning that his ex-son-in-law helped put him in jail again, “I’m sure he’s not thrilled,” she said.
“He spoke to my mother and he just said he wished he could have had Thanksgiving with his family. He’s [locked up] and he’s going to deal with it.”

  6. WOW...to save his own ass he wires and rats out his own father-in-law...SHOCKER...but the most disturbing part of all, he only wanted to get back with Renee (sorry, if this offends her) so he wouldn't be 'emotionally' alone going back to jail. Easier to have her in his life to write, visit, just "being" there...what a f###ing user and pathetic human being...not to mention doing this to his own son's grandfather. There's no LOYALTY in that man's brain whatsoever. He's been all about himself from day one. Renee, if you see this, please for you and your son, maintain civility for the son/father relations, otherwise you need to end it permanently for yourself and know you deserve better. I hate to say this, but you've said yourself, he's been playing you since day one.
    WHY get back with you on last season...c'mon, the writings on the wall. Every man in prison wants their wives there for them. The truth hurts, but it's true. You and your son do not deserve deceit, and disloyalty. If not for you, co-dependency is hard to overcome, do it for your baby, JR. Good luck!!

  8. Ramona and Drita were right (who ever said it) that Jr. is a loser and was nothing without her father! Move the fuck on Renee! He is nothing but a big fat RAT! You look like a fool with all this crying you do over him!!

  9. Not a lot of real loyalty these days. Bunch of people looking out for themselves. You know what you were getting into JR, you should've man the f up. If you can't do the time, then don't do the crime. Screwing your family is the worse thing you can do, screwing both of your families...wrong move.

  10. Well now, now we all know WHY Jr was staying so close to Renee & her dad! He already got him busted once...& Gpa trusted him AGAIN?!? This rat bastard obviously can NEVER EVER be trusted. & Renee, you're CRYING over this rat snitching punk? Quit the drama & be a woman. Get yourself a REAL MAN w a REAL JOB! How could any one of you trust someone who's an admitted rat, thief, a liar, extortionist & a murderer? You all KNEW what he was & yet, you trusted him...serves you right!

  11. You trusted someone you KNEW was a liar, a rat, a theif, an extortionist, a murderer & already snitched on Gpa before! Hey Renee, WTF are bawling your eyes out like an overly needy, high school girl? You KNEW what he IS capable of & your crying over that P.O.S? Ya'll deserve everything ya got comin...& so does Jr!

  13. It doesn't matter family is family and we don't. Rat out family.if you did the crime do your own time. Jr was wrong if he was really a wire.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well not one person knows, none of you know if this is true. None of you know how this family feels, your just judgmental and assuming that the media is telling the truth. How many things have been blown out of proportion or lied about the story? Now no matter what if shown that Jr, didn't RAT, he will always still have the label and can not get away from that ever. So until you have walked in their shoes, and the official truth comes out, DON'T JUDGE!!

  15. My husband plotted against me while we were married. Actually thought the marriage was getting better. No Loyalty!I feel your pain. Now it is time to pull up your panties and move on. Take care of yourself and your son!!

  16. Sorry Amber.G, The writings on the wall and feds documents,
    I can't lie I understand Renee's feeling of loss and her wanting to be there for Jr when she thought it was just another bit,She thought i'd rather live waiting for him then without him, That pure unselfish love. But you can tell that since she found out about him flipping for the feds she's done with him. And come on here a gad damn letter on the bedside, That was such a disrespectful move. And this is a lot different then Sammy the Bull as far as i'm concerned, Like Karen said to feel like your best friend is selling you out is one thing, (Still Not Right) But to actually have a wire taped to your body to go after your sons grandfather,That is an unbelievable difference to me anyways. I mean come on here he just threw his whole life away, He can't go back to SI,He'll never have trust from his own son. and You just proved all the rumors about him being tied to Renee for her dad,True. I feel so bad for Renee I mean how do you turn 23 years of loving someone off over night. It's like being on a train going 195 miles an hr, coming to a complete stop and going in reverse. You have to relive every moment with him and wonder is this when he became the dirty 2 bit rat faced selfish f**k or was it this other time. And how is his son suppose to feel know 1,That he cared that lil for his sons feeling,2,His papa will most likely die in prison thanks to his dad,3, His dad used his mother openly and shamelessly for his own gain. Omg my heart bleeds for this family. what a f-ing shame.I really hope Renee and AJ know there is nothing they could have done differently. It's just a crying shame.

  19. So Jr ratted. So what. Despite what the mob say about loyalty, bottom line is that it is each man for himself. Gravano ratted - and that's supposedly better?????? Wonder what royalties Karen Gravano is going to pay the families of those HER father murdered? HMMMMMMM???? What's worse - an old mobster going back to jail for continuing crime via a wire or a daughter racking in the dollars off her father's name and the crimes HE committed? Far as I'm concerned, Jr got it right.

  20. I felt so bad for Renee. I just wanted to cry with her and tell her everything is going to be okay, especially when she was on the phone that morning and heard her father being busted. I just hope she finds a normal man that loves her, but it seems like she loved rat Junior too much, but I am sure if she could kill him and get by with it, she would now. I was happy to see them get back together because I knew she loved him, but he acted too weird for me and I said it as soon as he appeared this season. It was like they didn't have a connection or something, even though they had AJ together and a history together. The sad part is that he ratted on his father in law. WTF? I can't believe he would even trust Junior or ANYONE after being out of jail for three months and all over $150k loan shark money. I guess once your in that lifestyle, it is hard to get out. Poor guy will probably die in prison now. Even though he did commit a crime, but having Junior rat on him is hideous. And the bastard just used Renee and didn't even love her. I know Renee can be a little on the crazy side sometimes, but if I lived her life, I would be a freaking nutcase.

    Renee, if you ever read this, but I am sure you won't, I just wanted to tell you to always keep your head up and I think you will find love. You may just have to be a little nice to him.. haha. You are a beautiful, smart woman and a GREAT mom to AJ. It sucks not having a father figure in your son's life. But, us mommies can be mommy/daddy. AJ seems like a great kid and I hope he keeps on the right track!

    I say in the next two years, someone is going to find Junior's snitch ass and kill him. No wonder he got so fucking paranoid at that Halloween party when someone mentioned "cop". He was probably afraid that person saw him with a cop and he wanted out of dodge, so he could continue to use Renee and finishing up his ratting job.

    Anyways.. Renee, I love you girl and fuck the haters. You will always be my fave Mob Wive, even though you can be a little bipolar sometimes, but we all have a little bipolar in us. haha. <3
