Mob Wives stars Renee Graziano and Karen Gravano have had a rocky friendship over the years, and viewers have seen their ups and downs throughout the five seasons. Not only has the show shown the evolution of their relationship with each other, the two ladies have opened up about how the show has affected their personal lives in a recent report by RealityTea.
Renee shares that she feels the show has sometimes mis-portrayed her life saying,“I have gotten use to my personal life being aired. I only wish the whole truth was told. I think I’d be more respected and less hated or not looked at like a drama queen, but as a woman who has been dealt a hand and still finds a way to pull aces and jokers when in need.”
Karen feels that the show has been a great experience and is happy to be able to share a life that she once felt she couldn’t saying, “I have always been affiliated with that lifestyle, I just never spoke about it growing up. The word ‘mob’ was taboo. So now to actually acknowledge the lifestyle is different and strange…But as far as being part of the show, it’s been a great experience.”
Renee shares that she is not sure what her regrets are because they ultimately have led to something positive in her life, so she says, “Maybe just my hair color or the way I spoke to others. Wait, I think I know… I wish I didn’t curse as much.”
Karen has a similar answer about what she regrets saying, “I don’t believe in living in the past and everything happens for a reason, so I wouldn’t change a thing…wait, well maybe some of my wardrobe choices and hairstyles!”
There are so many physical fights on this show that I am surprised the ladies didn’t say that they regretted any of these fights. What do you think of Renee saying that the show has mis-portrayed her life? What are your thoughts on Karen saying the acknowledgment of this lifestyle feels different and strange?
