As someone who has seen at least a few episodes of each version of the Real Housewives franchise and felt a little nausea that I have come to the Mob Wives with high expectations. But this pleasure floridly, vicarious reality series has a vicious vulgar charm. It's like watching a cross between The Sopranos and The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
These are real crowd spouses. Karen Gravano is the daughter of Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, Renee Graziano is the daughter of Anthony Graziano, is considered an important member of the Cosa Nostra. The top four "wives" were either men or fathers who have served or are serving time in prison and the woman is difficult to make statements without worries as "Ya never rat no matter what" and "I hit a lotta f-in 'people. "
They are so steeped in crime, culture, they are not a big deal out of it - unless someone crosses them. While most people offer Mob Wives interesting view of the compound too, the body-modified live their lives in luxury garish, it is a central element of drama than any reality show requires successful. Renee, Carla Facciolo Drita and d'Avanzo are all friends in Staten Island, but Karen has spent the last decade in Arizona under the witness protection program.
In the evening, Karen will follow his return to Staten Island, because he needs the time, as he says, "Staten Island is a breeding ground for the Mafia." As the father Renee Karen, in particular, believes that a rat whose testimony damaged John Gotti and the Gambino family, the two women are on a collision course.
Their first meeting at a birthday party for Carla, seems gradually - or Renee says her friend, who must return to Karen's secret, "Those f-in 'me set up bitches!" -. Fireworks women look real I believe in the genuineness of such a context, it spits any non-verbal insults, which I sincerely hostile At least that's what I took away from the fractured Drita said. "If you can not do time, just f-in 'to kill yourself. "
By turns funny, shocking and scary, mob wives are fast paced reality TV at its most exuberant appalling.
