Renee Graziano has been through a lot since Mob Wives went off the air, and after a season on Celebrity Big Brother, Renee is on a new reality show; Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars!

Most of us had no idea that Renee had a boyfriend, and the biggest problem between her and (ex) beau Joey is his insistence that their relationship be kept secret! (It hasn’t been confirmed that they are not dating, but there is NO sign of Joey on any of Renee’s social media accounts!)

Renee has bigger things to worry about than a man, she’s about to be a grandma, and she’s once again working on her sobriety, in Miami! Renee recently spoke to Radaronline about her “secret drug hell,” and terrifying Oxycontin overdose!

We watched a previous rock bottom of Renee’s on Mob Wives, and a few years ago she also spent time working on her sobriety in South Florida. “I have suffered with depression for 25 years, and for years it was frowned upon to take medication for it. It was always ‘Just get over it,” Renee admitted.

Renee says that past abusive relationships have resulted in her PTSD, which ultimately has left her emotionally unstable. She’s been battling this drug hell for nearly 10 years, and she dished on the day that things officially took a turn for the worst!

It was on July 4th in 2007. I was prescribed pain medication for a broken coccyx, they were giving me oxys (sic oxycontin) and sleep meds. I didn’t eat and I wasn’t sleeping for days at that point and my body caved in. I had almost no potassium and that causes a heart attack. I collapsed,” Renee explained. Adding, “I had an overdose and my mom didn’t know what to do so they called the ambulance. They put me on an IV and a 72-hour hold.

Renee spent the next week or so detoxing, but this was just the beginning of her struggle with sobriety. “I was in rehab three times before this time now,” she confessed. Revealing, “This is my fourth attempt. So far I’ve been in 90 days at Transitions Recovery Program in Miami. They are amazing!

Continuing, “I went in on October 4th and spent two weeks detoxing because after the first week my stomach blew up and they found a tumor This is what happens when you neglect your body and don’t pay attention.

I’ve always been afraid of being happy. It’s been 25 years since I’ve felt that way. I’ve decided to stay in the program until March. I’m working the steps of Narcotics Anonymous for the first time,” Renee wrapped!

I love Renee, she and I have talked a few times and she’s great. It’s clear she’s been battling some major demons, and often times it takes people years to become sober once and for all! She’s got many things to look forward to in the future, and the AATRH team wishes her nothing but the best!

Thoughts on Renee’s confessions? Are you surprised she’s in rehab again? Will she be able to stay sober once and for all?

    Good luck Renee! Wow, I didn’t know a stomach can blow up, that sounds so terribly painful. I was wondering how she and the rest have been doing. Keep wondering if they’ll revamp the show and bring it back.

      @Maru- I have also wondered-I think it would be hard without Big Ang- I really liked her and I hate she is gone-
      Renee is on Marriage BootCamp- (the man is horrid & so dis-respectful to her- I kinda think its prob a $$$ thing , and I don’t think they are really a couple/ But I Hope Renee sobriety

    Wow! Those oxy’s should be outlawed. Get better Renee!

    Yeah, I read about this, it is so frustrating. While doing drugs, the altered state of mind rarely knows how to prioritize actual needs in a drug addicts mind.

    Never give up rehabing,the people in your life need to be honest.

    Renee already knows she is an addict, and many times she has taken responsibility of her actions – she seems stuck in that spot and relapses.

    Good luck Renee – don’t stop trying
