VIDEO Mob Wives’ Drita D’Avanzo reads from Fifty Shades of Grey


Not only is Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo fearless when it comes to verbal and physical confrontations, but she also fearless when handed an erotic novel and asked to read it during a television interview! That’s exactly what happened as the 34-year-old reality star and her cast mate Carla Facciolo were doing an interview with MTV News and the subject of E L James’ erotic New York Times best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey came up. The interviewer happened to have a copy on hand and Drita read a racy passage in her thick Staten Island accent (with shocked interjections thrown in). Keep reading to watch the hilarious clip that could spawn an entirely new career for the VH1 celeb, who might need to change her name to Drita von Teese!
