Mob Wives is a wrap, ending in a blaze of dramatic glory, with one last walk down memory lane, accompanied by a final screaming cursing match.
Drita D’Avanzo and Karen Gravano were once friends, but exited the show as hardcore enemies. Karen is fiercely protective of her father, the currently imprisoned Sammy “The Bull” Gravano. A reunion rehash of Season 5, exposed Drita using Karen’s father as a means to a manipulative end. Drita crossed a cocky line, when she tried to use Karen’s father’s dark reputation, to get his daughter booted off the show.
Karen made a surprise return to the Mob Wives at the beginning of the Season 5. In the clip below from the from season 5, episode 1, Drita FAKED a grin and a hug, pretending in Karen‘s face to be happy about her return.
Then like a scaredy RAT, Drita waits until Karen‘s out of earshot to run to producers behind the scenes to diss Karen’s return to the show. Before the video evidence (unseen footage) below emerged, Drita remarked at the season 6 reunion, “I never talk about her [Karen’s] father.” However in the video, she’s heard saying, “VH1 and them are stupid to be involved with her [Karen] father.”
VH1 cuts off the dialogue there, and picks up with Drita complaining about Karen and the others “bringing in men,” and making the show “so personal.” Drita threatens to quit — implying that if the producers didn’t reverse the Karen return, she would walk. VH1 cut the most inflammatory part of Drita’s argument, when she cited Sammy the Bull as a threat, and a convincing reason to get rid of Gravano.
“You think I want to get my f**king family harmed, for a show? No thank you. Her father is going to come out of jail, not having anything, and want to fu**king kill people? No thank you. I won’t be on this show anymore, after today. F**k this sh*t — I quit.” In the clip below, Drita is caught red-handed.
Fans know that Karen once dated Drita’s husband Lee, and that her father was once grooming him, for a future with the mob. Lee fell flat, but scored a careening lunatic wife in Drita, as a consolation prize.
Drita D’Avanzo is busted — as a fake, a liar, and a self-serving manipulator. Mob Wives is over, but Drita continues her trashy reality, as evidenced by her February attack on Mary Bratti. Drita viciously attacked Bratti, cheered on by her husband, over a parking space disagreement. Different season — but the same old Drita D’Avanzo. Watch video footage of the attack here.
