10 Things You Didnt Know About Mob Wives' Renee Graziano (Photos)

Renee Graziano

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. If you haven’t been watching Mob Wives, what have you been watching? It’s not like there’s anything else this good on reality television.

Season 2 is looking to be so much more juicier than Season 1 with these celebrity mothers bringing on the drama in more ways than one. One of our favorite cast members (and I use to word favorite lightly) is Renee Graziano, the tough-talking, multiple-personality and incredibly crazy and hysterical ring leader of the group.

Did you know that Renee suffers from excessively writing letters to both criminals both known and unknown to her and that even though she’s been institutionalized she’s never spent a day inside? Apparently she takes care of everyone. It’s like she’s the Godmother of criminals.

It also seems like Vh1 is really trying to out-do Bravo with their Real Housewives series. So far, it seems to be working. Check out our ten things you probably didn’t know about Renee and tell us what you think.
