10 Reasons Why You Should Watch Mob Wives (Photos)

The Real Housewives of Staten Island

If you’re still watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Jersey Shore, clearly you’re wasting your time.

As many television critics and bloggers already know, Mob Wives is reality television gold. I mean, where else could you get a line as priceless as a single mother saying, “You wanna play Mafia Wars? I win.”

These classy ladies Drita D’Avanzo, Carla Facciolo, Karen Gravano, Renee Graziano, Ramona Rizzo, and Angela “Big Ang” Raiola all make Teresa Giudice look like last season’s line of Louis Vuitton imitation bags. After watching one episode of this show you’re going to want to hit the snooze button each time you see Jacqueline Laurita on television.

(Oh, and Caroline Manzo soooo wants to be one of them. But she ain’t!)

Check out our ten reasons why you should watch Mob Wives this season. All six women are mothers (well, single mothers if you want to get technical) and we’ll be watching to see how they juggle parenting with their ahem issues. If you remember, season one brought us that golden scene in which Drita went over some bikini photos of herself with her three-year-old daughter to send to her husband behind bars. It’s going to be that kind of parenting.

    About how her daughter makes friends at school: "Aleeya went to school — this little girl went up to her and said, ‘I can't believe your mom is on that show. My dad's in jail [too],'" Drita tells us. "Aleeya goes, ‘You're dad's in jail too?' And the little girl goes, ‘Yeah.' The other little girl goes, ‘My dad's not around. Now I feel comfortable.' And they became friends."

    "I always want Karina to learn to defend herself and stand up for what she believes in," adds Karen. "And hopefully it never gets to the point of someone having to fist fight because I never want to see my daughter fist fight. But if that's what it comes to, then you have to defend yourself."
