A betrayal impacts Renee; Drita introduces Philadelphian Nat D. to the Staten Island circle, and Ang receives shocking news at her cousin’s sentencing.
“Mob Wives” is a reality series that follows a group of Staten Island women after their husbands and/or fathers are arrested and imprisoned for crimes connected to the Mafia.
Renee Graziano, daughter of Anthony Graziano, describes herself as a “loud, foul-mouthed drama queen.” Drita D’Avanzo, wife of Lee D’Avanzo — who is a reported Bonanno Crime Family and Colombo Crime Family soldier — works as a freelance makeup artist.
Karen Gravano is the daughter of Sammy Gravano, a former underboss of the Gambino crime family and federal informant (or in their terms, a “RAT!”). Angela “Big Ang” Raiola is the niece of Salvatore “Sally Dogs” Lombardi, a deceased captain of the Genovese Crime Family and she co-owns the bar Drunken Monkey.
And Natalie Guercio is the granddaughter of Nunzio Carto, who owns the Carto Funeral Home in Philadelphia, which she also helps run.
