Mob Wives back on VH1 for a fifth season

Mob Wives 5

“Mob Wives” is back for a fifth season of screeching, yelling, shopping, more yelling and jail visits as Staten Island gun molls Drita D’Avanzo, Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano, Natalie Guercio and Angela “Big Ang” Raiola go on the prowl.
Last season, Renee, 46, mainly dealt with her father, Anthony Graziano, who was sentenced to one-and-a-half years in prison after her ex-husband, Hector “Junior” Pagan, wore a wire for the FBI and secretly taped conversations of his father-in-law with five other members of the Bonanno crime family. Four men, including Graziano, were sentenced to four-and-a-half years collectively after the recordings revealed they had attempted to collect a $150,000 illegal gambling debt.
Drita, 38, has a husband who is doing time. Lee D’Avanzo is serving time in prison for bank robbery — his second time in the big house. Karen, 35, who is the daughter of Sammy “The Bull” Gravano, returned to Staten Island after relocating to Arizona with her family.
Natalie, 31, is the single mother of a 9-year-old and wants to bring her family business, Carto Funeral Home, back to its former glory. And despite her over-the-top personality and zaftig proportions, Big Ang, 54, is known to most as the levelheaded one.
One question viewers would like to see answered this season is what exactly causes Big Ang and Renee to get into a huge fight. Hair is pulled, skin is bruised and accusations are hurled — irresistible scenes for those who get their rocks off on girl fights.
These ladies are bringing back the drama that we all thrive on from our reality starlets.
“Mob Wives” premiered Dec. 3 at 9 p.m. on VH1.
