This will shake some things up on VH1′s Mob Wives.
Mob Wives‘ Renee Grazian’s dad Anthony Graziano is a consigliere in the Bonanno crime family, so that makes things awkward now that her ex-husband, and the father of her 17-year-old son Hector Pagan Jr. is an FBI informant who was wired for a year!
On the bright side, Renee can now get even closer to her her pal Karan Gravano, who’s dad was the infamous “rat” who helped bring down John Gotti. But then again, this episode might leave her feeling even more freaked about informants.
Renee’s sister Jennifer Graziano produces the show (Their dad reported hasn’t spoken with them since they started taping the show!) and she freaked out about continuing the reality show when news first hit of Hector being an informant.
Hector Pagan AND Anthony Graziano were both arrested last week. Hector was looking at “a long prison term for armed robbery for his role in allegedly sticking up a high-stakes poker game.”
Jennifer told Page Six: “The first inclination is always to say, ‘Shut it down.’ “It is a reality show, and I knew this was going to be personal to me going into this,” she said. “But I didn’t know this was going to happen.”
Pagan was reportedly wearing a wire for a year, and recorded conversations where his ex-father-in-law Anthony Graziano asked him to collect a $150,000 loanshark debt from a man.
The first episode of Mob Wives airs January 1, and in it Pagan is shown pacing and talking to his ex-wife Renee Graziano about being offered to take a deal by prosecutors on another arrest.
Renee, who must be under a whole lot ‘o stress over this situation, tweeted Bible verses this weekend: “Evn whn I hve troubles all around me U, GOD will keep me alive! Whn my enemies r angry U, GOD will reach dwn n sve me w ur pwer. Psalm 138:7″
She also tweeted:
“Cnt wait 2 watch me n @DritaDavanzo 2nite @ 7 on VH1 40 winningest winners!!! Yaeh Baby!!!!!!!!!!!”
Mob Wives will no doubt get more real this season!
