A runaway hit from the start, “Mob Wives” is a “docu-soap” that follows the larger-than-life experiences of four long-time friends in Staten Island as they struggle to pick up the pieces and keep their families together after the men in their lives have been imprisoned for mob-related activities. “Mob Wives UNCENSORED: Season 1” stars Renee Graziano, the daughter of Anthony Graziano, who, according to the Federal Government, was a high-ranking member of La Cosa Nostra; Karen Gravano, the daughter of Sammy “The Bull” Gravano, the infamous mobster who helped take down the notorious Gambino crime family; Drita D’avanzo, the wife of Lee D’avanzo, thought to be the leader of a Bonanno and Colombo crime family farm team; and Carla Facciolo whose father went to prison when she was young and whose husband was convicted for a boiler room scandal. In every episode, they battle their friends, relatives – and each other – as they strive to do what’s best for themselves and their children. “Mob Wives: Season 2” will premiere on VH1 January 1st, 2012, at 8pm.
