Viewers will apparently see a lot of drama between Drita D’Avanzo and Karen Gravano on season 6 of Mob Wives, which premieres on Wednesday, January 16. The relationship between the two women are so bad that Drita has no qualms about sharing with the public a very unflattering photo of Karen.
On Saturday, Natalie Guercio, who starred on the show’s fourth and fifth seasons, tweeted a bad photograph of Karen that was published in a magazine. The magazine’s photograph shows Karen on the beach in a black swimsuit. The magazine declared that Karen’s outfit makes her look like a “Mob slob.” Natalie added that the photo was so bad that it couldn’t be photoshopped.
Alicia DiMichele, who starred on the show’s fourth season along with Drita and Natalie, said that the bad photograph is a result of karma.
Drita also believes that Karen deserves the bad photograph. Drita tweeted that Karen lied, called people rats, and insulted people’s mothers.
“@NatalieEGuercio THIS IS CALLED KARMA MY FRIEND!!! LIES…CALLN PEOPLE RATS…INSULTING PEOPLES MOTHERS..KARMA BEATS THAT A**.
Natalie Guercio and Alicia DiMichele’s dislike of Karen Gravano was shown on the previous seasons. While Karen was not on season 4, the season’s premiere episode showed Alicia talking about how she can’t be in the same room as Karen because Karen’s father, Sammy “The Bull” Gravano, was involved in the murder of her father-in-law, Edward Garofalo. Karen, who was on the show’s first three seasons, responded by posting a tweet that pretty much said that Alicia had her kicked off the show. Alicia later chose to leave after only one season and Karen returned to the show. On the fifth season, Karen battled with Natalie due to Natalie’s conflict with Karen’s co-star and good friend Renee Graziano.
In contract, Drita D’Avanzo and Karen Gravano didn’t really have much conflict last season. So what has made Drita so mad at Karen now? According to Drita, Karen called a blog and asked them to make up a story about her husband getting arrested. Drita hinted that she can’t wait until the season 6 reunion show films to confront Karen.
Long-time viewers of the show have seen Drita’s devotion and loyalty to her husband, so Drita’s anger upon learning what Karen supposedly did is probably not a surprise to anyone. Drita stood by her husband, Lee D’Avanzo, despite the fact that he went to prison twice. During the many years that he was in prison, she raised their two daughters alone. Lee was released in 2013 after finishing his second prison term. After he came out, Drita filmed scenes in which she spoke to him over the phone. So far, he has never appeared personally on the show.
Drita received a lot of tweets from her fans cheering her on and encouraging her to confront Karen. Drita replied to several of them by confirming, with a lot of expletives thrown in, that she’ll go after Karen.
Drita later tweeted that Karen, during the filming of the new season, called Brittany Fogarty’s mother a rat on the show despite her repeatedly saying in the past that cast members’ family members shouldn’t be pulled into the show’s drama. Brittany is one of the upcoming season’s new supporting cast members.
There have been some reports of Drita being targeted by the other cast members. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Jennifer Graziano, the show’s creator and producer who happens to be Renee’s sister, recently denied that there was a plot to oust Drita from the show.
Besides Drita D’Avanzo and Karen Gravanzo, Mob Wives season 6, which will be the final season, will also star Renee Graziano, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, and Carla Facciolo. Marissa Jade joins Brittany Fogarty as a supporting cast member.
