It's only a couple hours off, the premiere of Mob Wives on VH1 at 8. I thought we'd run down the personalities with a short bio of each girl from Staten Island.
First up is Drita.
She's from a tight knit Albanian family that are none too pleased with her marrying into the mob. Her husband is in prison for robbing a bank. They've been married for 12 years but have only spent 2 of those years together because the dud sucks as a criminal. This one probably has some financial problems.
Next up is Karen.
This one is going to be the laser point for a lot of anger because her father is known informant Sammy 'The Bull' Graviano. She better be as tough as she looks because her dad snitched on these women's relatives. She's been away for ten years and they brought her back because she also used to date Drita's husband. Yay! I mean, Uh-oh!
Here's shrinking violet, Renee-
This is our drama queen. Her Dad is Anthony Graziano, former head of the Bonnano Family who is serving an 11 year sentence for everything but baby porn. She hates Karen's Dad for being a snitch so someone's gonna get a beating, joy!
Last is Carla, the spoiled brat.
She's bit of a snob and fancies herself a Manhattan gal. She looks about as 'Man-attan' as Teresa Joo-Dice. Her husband is in jail for ripping old ladies of their savings to the tune of 17 million dollars so wifey here could wear the pelts of dead animals. She has 8 year old twins but still parties like Tara Reid at Coachella. The loose cannon, I hope.
So, these are our ladies in what VH1 is calling a 'docu-soap.' Guess what else was a docu-soap? That Gawd awful 'Secrets of Aspen.' Here's hoping this one's better. Feel free to banter and comment below during the show, and hopefully I'll be back from the dinner party Mr. McSlore sprung on me at the last minute. It starts at 5 so I'm hoping I can make it back in time. Break open the red wine and get out your straws, and let the thick accents and swearing begin. I'm hoping they set a new record for most bleeps during a television show.
