Mob Wives: AJ Pagan, Renee Graziano’s Son
AJ stands for Anthony John and I’m guessing he was named after his grandfather. When the series first started, it seemed to me that AJ did not like being in the spotlight at all. Any time some drama was about to go down, he managed to leave the room so he wouldn’t be involved. However, girls seem to find AJ a “hottie” and his new found fame is getting this recently turned 17 year old, lots of female attention. He has his own fan page on FaceBook. All you have there are post after post from girls. He even has a new twitter account. Young Mr. Pagan is definitely coming out of his shell.
During the third episode of the show, “Mob Bust,” he was pretty vocal with his mother. He was even more explosive on a clip they didn’t air, but sent out to fans. You maybe be able to view the clip at VH1 or the Mob Wives Fan page on Facebook. Interestingly enough, he has listed himself as an “entertainer” on his own fan page. Surely, he is getting paid for his appearances and will probably be making more appearances since he has become “eye candy” for girls in his age group.
I find this fact strange…he just turned 17 right? His birthday is listed as April 23rd, 1987 on Facebook. That would make him 24. So which is it? First Carla shaves off 9 years from her age and now AJ is either cutting his age to 17 or lying on FaceBook and adding 7 years making him 24. I don’t know if it matters or not, but this is a “reality” show, can they at least be “real” about their ages. In any case, Jenn refers to him as a teenager on Twitter, so I guess he is just exaggerating on Facebook.
AJ is becoming a celebrity and enjoying it. He apparently has a girl friend, whose name I won’t mention to respect her privacy. But, on his real Facebook page, there is a “heart” with her name next to it, and his status is listed as “married.” Something kids nowadays do to express they are dating someone exclusively.
I read through his tweets and Facebook posts which all seem to confirm my first impression of AJ. I like AJ. He appears to be a well raised, decent kid, with a good head on his shoulders, who does chores around the house, loves girls, keeps his grades up and respects and loves his parents. Whatever else Renee may have done, she seems to have raised a son to really be proud of. If you miss his first interview with Mob Mistress read it here.
UPDATE! It has been confirmed, by an undisputable and very reliable source, that AJ Pagan is in fact 17 years old and definitely NOT married. The very handsome son of Renee Graziano does have a main squeeze. Look for a new blog, later today, to read the full story on the update!
