:MOB WIVES:

Now if you don't know get to know. I only know 2 other people that watch this right now and that's my housemate and JuppMan. Both of whom I made watch it. Now if you like car crash TV, especially American reality shows such as Jersey Shore and The Real Housewives of..then you are in for one hell of a treat. The show follows six Staten Island women after their husbands or fathers are arrested and imprisoned for crimes connected to the Mafia.

These are real bad bitches and the accents really are one of a kind. There's nice and funny bits and also not so nice bits. A whole load of hair pulling and f you's and mother fu**ers too which is always a treat for the British ears if your into that. It is also a pretty interesting reality TV show that does give a surprising insight in what its like for mothers who have to survive on their own while their other halves and/or family are inside prison. And by the way, these wives aren't just mob wives, they're the real deal mobwives. Here's a preview of season 2 so you can get an idea of what I'm talking about and below I've listed the women and their links to the mob.


Renee Graziano is the daughter of Anthony 'The Little Guy' Graziano, current consigliere of the Bonanno crime family, and ex-wife of Hector "Junior" Pagan, Jr., who has been charged with various crimes with the Mafia.

Drita D'Avanzo is of Albanian ancestry and is married to Lee D'Avanzo, who has been in and out of prison for such crimes as drug dealing and numerous bank robberies and dated Karen Gravano before marrying Drita. She's definitely my favorite out of all the wives, you'll see why.

Karen Gravano is the daughter of Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, a former underboss of the Gambino crime family, and federal informant. He is also portrayed in the film Goodfellas.

Ramona Rizzo is the granddaughter of former well-known mobster Benjamin “Lefty Guns” Ruggiero, who was played by Al Pacino in the movie Donnie Brasco.
