Mob Wives stars Karen Gravano, Jennifer Graziano seen in picture getting comfy with slay suspect

The "Mob Wives" aren't particular about the company they keep.

Karen Gravano - the daughter of ex-Gambino underboss Salvatore (Sammy Bull) Gravano - and Bonanno crime family princess Jennifer Graziano were caught partying last week with a thug who is being hunted for a slaying outside a Chelsea club.
Gravano and Graziano, who appear in the VH1 reality series "Mob Wives," were photographed snuggling up against Manuel (Stax) Pinero at Mr. Chow's last Wednesday.
That was four days before Pinero allegedly stabbed Christopher Adames in the chest and groin outside the Juliet Supper Club in Chelsea early Sunday morning. Police said the men were involved in a dispute over a woman.
The Twitter photo was provided to the Daily News before it was removed from Graziano's account yesterday.
Gravano, whose father admitting killing 19 people before turning rat against the late Gambino boss John Gotti, insisted that Pinero is no friend of hers.
"I know him to be a club promoter," Gravano told The News. "I have no personal relationship with him. He was with people I know at a party to promote a liquor.
"He asked me to take a picture," she said.
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly held up a mug shot of Pinero yesterday and urged the public to come forward with information about his whereabouts.
"The individual that was stabbed, they were arguing and he tried to get a cab or he was in the process of getting a cab, and he was stabbed," Kelly said.
Adames, 23, was pronounced dead at Bellevue Hospital. He had gone alone to the high-end nightspot on W. 21st St. where Jay-Z and Leonardo DiCaprio are among celebrities spotted there in the past.
"He was my only son, he was my everything," said Adames' mother Marisol De Leon, 43. "They must catch this man."
Adames worked two jobs, as a security guard at a hospital in Westchester and a barber in Manhattan, to help support his 5-year-old daughter, De Leon said.
