Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo is not one for sitting on her super fine laurels and settling for just being one of celebridom’s biggest and badassest reality stars. The 35-year-old mafiantrepreneur is converting her fame into more more fortune with numerous business ventures that include her own line of “Lady Boss” and “Team Drita” clothing, a workout DVD (coming soon!), her “Just Me” brand cosmetics, and now her own line of swimwear for House of Jackie B!
The Mob Wives 2nd season is going strong and one of the interesting trends I’ve noticed about the show is how popular it is among celebrities. There’s just something about the bombastic Staten Island fairies that appeals to folks in the spotlight. Two of the show’s outspoken fans, Queen Latifah and Wendy Williams, took their Drita devotion and Renee rhapsody a notch further by impersonating them in a scene from a skit on Wendy’s show called “Hairpiece Theater.” Check out the really funny clip and get Drita and Renee’s reaction.
There are divas, there are soul divas and then there are Staten Island (and one bad girl Brooklynite) divas that will damage your face and look freakin’ hot while doing it! VH1’s own Mob Wives; Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano, Drita D’Avanzo, Carla Facciolo and new additions Ramona Rizzo and Angela Raiola were in attendance for their network’s DIVAS Celebrates Soul at the Hammerstein Ballroom yesterday in New York City. See photos of all 6 and get brief bio info for Angela “Big Ang” Raiola.
“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!”
The Real Mob Wives of Staten Island are back, and it looks like their dramatic (and very successful!) first season was no fluke! Check out this 4-minute super trailer for Mob Wives season 2 featuring America’s favorite mafiettes Drita D’Avanzano, Carla Facciolo, Karen Gravano, and Renee Graziano with the addition of Ramona Rizzo, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, and Renee’s ex Hector AKA Junior Pagan (who was recently revealed to be an FBI informant who was wearing a wire while talking to Renee’s dad, leading to his arrest!) It’s hard to compete with Mob Wives drama!
Could it be that Snooki has found a replacement for her towering Guidette powerhouse pal JWoww? Normally I would scoff at the mere suggestion of being able to replace the incomparably intimidating Jersey Shore star, but that was before I realized there is a comparable intimidating reality powerhouse gal that could do it… Mob Wives‘ Drita Davanzo! Keep reading to see photos of the pair together on Staten Island earlier today as well as their mutually adoring Twitter exchange.
(All I have to say is, The Situation needs to watch out!)
I figured I’d do a little checking to see what my Staten Island fairies have been up to and holy freakin’ crap Drita D’Avanzo, Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano and Carla Facciolo have been busy. Instead of breaking this all up I figured I’d just give a big ol’ here’s what’s up with the upcoming 2nd season of the breakout reality hit Mob Wives on VH1. Check out a new promo video and poster, meet the newest addition to the cast, Ramona Rizzo, and find out about the recent arrests surrounding Renee including her father and ex-husband.
For Mob Wives badass Drita D’Avanzo, dealing with hateful, rude comments is probably unfamiliar ground. But, in the anonymous virtual world of Facebook, it’s an
everyday everyminute occurrence. Drita’s smart enough to realize the futility of allowing those comments to rile her up, but she’s also sassy enough to call into question the masculinity of any man who would do it to her! Keep reading for her wonderfully Dritatastic wall post that says what just about every celebrity with a fan page is thinking!
If you’re lonely and need special attention it’s a pop culture fact that Jersey Shore’s Snooki gives great interview. In a recent sit down with GQ the best selling author and reality star lets us in on the woman behind the tan. The interview meanders from here to there, much like Snooki after a few mixed drinks but there were two comments that I particularly enjoyed. One was about The Sitch being broke and the other has to do with my girls from Mob Wives. Still Jersday at da ‘Casm peeps!
I have to admit that I love me some Mob Wives especially my girl Drita D’avanzo who posted the following song to her Facebook page from another fan, Italian-American rapper G FELLA. While we wait for Season 2 we’ve got a track to keep us amped.
Sometimes you need to let your bikini bod do the talking and Mob Wives’ Drita D’avanzo did just that in this great vacay bikini pic. While she’s been letting her incarcerated and cheatin’ hubby Lee have it with plans for a divorce and Facebook blasts I think this little pic from her visit to the Bahamas says it all.
