VH1 announced in December that their Windy City incarnation of their Mob Wives reality series franchise would not be back for a second season, but that hasn’t stopped Mob Wives: Chicago star Pia Rizza from doing her best to stay in the headlines — with her headlights! Pia says she posed for some nude self portraits last year and sent them to her boyfriend to get his opinion on whether or not she was hot enough for Playboy. Someway, somehow somebody got their hands on the pictures and was reportedly shopping them around to various media outlets. So, Pia did what anyone would do in this situation… put the photos out herself! On TMZ!

In addition to great “police surveillance” style videography in the super trailer and the tough musical gem “Playing for Keeps” by Elle King, now we have the official cast photos of all the ladies – and they are wonderfully hyper-real and overly dramatic
