‘Mob Wives’ Producer, Renee Graziano’s Sis, Denies Plot To Oust Drita D’Avanzo

According to Renee Graziano’s sister, Jennifer Graziano, there is no plot to oust Drita D’Avanzo from Mob Wives. Jennifer should know, since she is the creator and executive producer of the show. On Sunday, the NY Daily News reported that the show’s other cast members are trying to get Drita off the show. The article claims that drama got so bad during the filming of the latest season that security had to be hired in case a fight broke out.

In response to the article, Jennifer called it ridiculous and funny. She pointed out that the show has had security in place since the very first season. She added that nobody is trying to oust anyone.

Returning cast member Carla Facciolo chimed in to agree with Jennifer. Carla tweeted that anyone who has watched the show from the beginning knows that security has always been there.

Of course, some of the viewer’s may point out that Jennifer Graziano will of course deny any plot to oust Drita D’Avanzo since she, being Renee Graziano’s sister, is biased. The NY Daily News article quotes a source as saying that Renee hates Drita and that even Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, Drita’s good friend, had to choose sides.

“Renee Graziano’s sister Jennifer (Graziano) is the creator and the bias is towards Renee. And Renee hates Drita. People are choosing sides. Big Ang was trying to keep the peace, but she is slowly gravitating towards Renee too.”

The source claimed that the show’s other stars banded together earlier in the summer to go against Drita. The source added that Drita realized what was going on and the resulting drama between her and the others got so bad that security had to hold Drita back several times.

“There has been security hired while they film, and they’ve had to hold Drita back multiple times. They are trying to push her off the show and she is aware of what’s going on. At the beginning of filming there was a concerted effort to not film with her. Then, it turned to fighting.”

Season 6 of VH1’s Mob Wives premieres on Wednesday, January 16, 2016. It will feature the return of Drita D’Avanzo, Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano, and Angela “Big Ang” Raiola. Also joining them is Carla Facciolo, who wasn’t on season 4 but made a few appearances on season 5, and two new cast members, Marissa Jade and Brittany Fogarty.


As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Drita hinted at some of the drama that she’s apparently having with the other housewives started in October, while the other women were enjoying a Miami vacation, when she threatened retaliation against those who have been challenging her.

One of the storylines for season 6 will likely be the demise of Drita’s friendship with Carla Facciolo. On season 5, Carla, much to Drita’s surprise, showed up to a party. Instead of giving Carla a warm welcome, Drita practically ignored her and ran off home. To the surprise of the other cast members, Carla revealed that Drita has been ignoring her. On the reunion show, Drita never explained what happened for her to now treat Carla, with whom she seemed to have a good friendship with during the prior seasons, differently. Perhaps viewers will finally get an explanation on the sixth season?

On season 5, Drita D’Avanzo also went back and forth when it came to Natalie Guercio. At times she agreed with Renee Graziano and Karen Gravano that Natalie wasn’t being truthful about who she really is, but at other times, she believed Natalie. All the while, Natalie vowed that she was on Drita’s side. Yet Drita won’t be having Natalie Guercio’s backing on the new season. In late October, Drita, who joined Mob Wives in season 4, confirmed that she has decided to leave Mob Wives.
