Who’s ready for some mobbed up Windy City mama drama?!? VH1 has just posted an extended “super trailer” for their brand new reality series Mob Wives Chicago and it looks to have all the profanity-laden smack-down drama of the Big Apple original! Check out the more than four minutes of footage with introductions from all of the cast members as well as some sneak peeks at some of the over-the-top drama we can expect when Mob Wives Chicago premieres June 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Dayum! Where do I even start? Here are all the gals’ “mug shot photos” with quotes and some brief commentary if needed:
Renee looks to be a badass sh*t-stirring Orange County version of Ramona Singer – and I mean that in a great way! She also appears to be the only one in which her children will play a very important role on the show as Renee wrestles with a child custody case. Renee’s “proctologist quote” (below) is pretty great, but my favorite Renee Russo moment form the clip is when she’s down on her knees at a formal party motioning with her index finger for someone to come closer, and she tauntingly screams, “I’m begging you!”
Nora: “Don’t put your f***ing finger in my face!”
Renee: “I’ll put my f***ing finger in your ass if I want!”
Leah may be my early favorite! She looks like a charismatically vociferous vixen who is going to really blossom in front of the cameras. For some of the following quotes I’ve had to spell out the terms she used phonetically with the hopes of eventually (thanks to comments from our readers – wink, wink) finding out how to spell them correctly. On a side note, Leah also takes home my top prize for best fake mug shot! She looks criminally lovely in that profile shot don’t you agree?
Leah: “She don’t know that I will f***ing blast her!”
Leah: “Nora is a skustimad, and what I mean by that is she’s nuts.”
Leah: The kind of guys I’m interested in? I like banyaralls – big FAT asses! It’s the truth.”
Leah: “I would hit him in the head with a shovel.”
I may be way off base here, but it appears that Christina is the Queen Bee of the Mob Wives Chicago cast. She comes across as very strong, but also reserved – sort of a Godmother kind of vibe Like I said, my opinion could shift fifteen seconds into the first episode, but judging from the super trailer that’s what I’m thinking. By the way, I love her “JWoww” face on the second mug shot photo above!
Pia appears to be the no-nonsense, I’ve had to bust my ass doing whatever I could to get by, woman. It looks as though she will spend a lot of the season defending herself and her actions (such as being a stripper) to the other cast members, and judging from the super trailer, she is more than capable of defending herself, both physically and verbally! (The gloves are off when you bring Culture Club into it!)
Pia: “That’s not the first time I punched her in the f***in’ face and it won’t be the f***in’ last.”
Pia: (about Renee): “I want to take her and her Boy George hat and throw her off the balcony.”
Pia: “Anybody that says its a glamorous lifestyle is not really in this lifestyle”
Oh dear, Nora did not come off very well in the trailer at all! She seems to have some issues with words and their definitions, and she also appears to like starting fights and then running away like a scared little girl. (Did you see the look in her eyes when Renee was coming at her in the restaurant after the “finger in my face” altercation?!?) And my apologies for only having one mug shot of Nora – perhaps she didn’t understand when the photographer asked for a profile shot?
Nora: (on whether or not it’s actually her father in his casket or not): “I will get closure one day. I will resume the body.”
Nora: “It’s humiliation. Humiliation with a, “she pauses a moment, apparently trying to remember what letter the word humiliation starts with, “capital letters all the way through how it’s spelled.”
