Jennifer Graziano Talks Ending Of ‘Mob Wives,’ Reveals That She Is No Longer Friends With Drita D’Avanzo

Jennifer Graziano recently opened up about the ending of Mob Wives. The show had a six-season run, lasting longer than critics initially expected. Graziano was strictly behind the scenes as a producer, but had very close friendships with several of the ladies. Season 6 of Mob Wives was one of the most intense and heartbreaking things to watch, especially for long-time viewers. As Graziano watched behind the scenes, things changed in her personal life as well. Fans have been waiting to hear what Jennifer Graziano thought about the Drita D’Avanzo and Karen Gravano feud. While she didn’t comment when the show was airing, everything is now out in the open.

Because she was a professional first and foremost when it came to Mob Wives, Jennifer Graziano did not let herself get pulled into the drama surrounding the ladies. Drita D’Avanzo and Karen Gravano have been incredibly vocal about their beef, with it spilling over onto social media. It didn’t look good for these ladies, and it ended rather badly. According to VH1, Jennifer Graziano is no longer friends with Drita D’Avanzo. She spoke out in an interview with the network and talked about how she disagreed with the way some things were handled. Graziano had been friends with both women for several years, even through many ups and downs. While she is still friends with Karen Gravano, Drita is out of her personal life.

Despite rumors of a Season 7 for Mob Wives, that does not seem to be the case. Jennifer Graziano is shopping around two scripted ideas and one unscripted series right now. She confirmed that they are not about the lifestyle they are accustomed to living in, but that she isn’t opposed to working on that again later. Graziano is creative and doesn’t want to be pigeonholed into a category she isn’t completely passionate about. Mob Wives had a decent run, and now that it is over Graziano can move on to doing a variety of shows.

Losing Big Ang hit everyone hard, including Jennifer Graziano. They learned about Big Ang’s illness before fans did, which is why Season 6 of Mob Wives was the final cut. Graziano and the members of the cast didn’t think she would pass before filming ended, but unfortunately, that is exactly what happened. According to the Wrap, Jennifer Graziano wanted to honor Big Ang with a special tribute. It aired just a few weeks ago, and it was a touching remembrance of one of the most beloved reality stars. Graziano was saddened by Big Ang’s death and with her gone, life will never be the same.

Ok I'm reposting because I found the words…. LIGHT. HEART. SOUL. STRONG. AMAZING. FUN. PARTY. PARTY. PARTY. YOUNG. FRIEND. HAPPY. READY. LOYAL. Big Ang was more than meets the eye. I'm honored that I was able to show the world a glimpse into who she was. But what you saw on TV just scratched the surface of her soul. She was one of the best, loving mothers I have ever seen. She was a pure pleasure to work with and hands down the most hardest worker I've ever seen. I remember filming two shows at once and Ang worked around the clock flying in straight from Miami to film w her mob wives cast and then flying right back without a single complaint!! Season after season back to back. She would do or try anything and always thanked me for helping her to make her life better and different through television. However, more than Mob Wives and the Big Ang Show and Miami Monkey, she was also a great friend. And when she is your friend she is your friend to the end. She truly cared about my happiness and always checked in on me and always knew when something was wrong. And she would say, "let's go eat and get whacked". To her the friendship was first and Mob Wives was second. She took care of all of us…cast and crew. And most of all Big Ang was loyal to the core….when things shook up and sides were taken and loyalties were tested ….not hers. She stood right by my side…and I will always be by hers!!! RIP my friend, Ang, you have made a life long impression on my heart. ????????????????????????

It is unclear where Jennifer Graziano will go from here. She hinted at having another show picked up by a major network, though it is unclear which network it was. Graziano cannot reveal any details while in contract talks, but is hopeful fans will be seeing her behind the scenes on another show. There was some hope that a Season 7 of Mob Wives would come to be, but it just isn’t going to happen. The divide is so severe between Drita D’Avanzo and Karen Gravano that anything done now would be incredibly forced.

Fans will miss Mob Wives and Jennifer Graziano in the background. She has often played a huge part in social media for the show, tweeting along as each episode aired. Being that she is the sister of Renee Graziano, it was interesting to see how little interaction in front of the camera Jennifer had. As Mob Wives fades into the distance, fans can be assured that there is more coming from Jennifer Graziano, but it won’t be anything like you would expect it to be.
