Mob Wives: Chicago Done Deal!
Biggest Mobster of Chicago: Al Capone
In case you don’t follow every little thing that is going on with Mob Wives, you definitely should. Those of us that do, know that Jennifer Graziano has been making trips back and forth to various locations working on deals for new shows. As we mentioned in earlier blogs, Jennifer has been looking for other cities to add to her successful hit show. One of those cities is Chicago, the home of Al Capone, one of the most notorious mobsters in American history.
Negotiations for a spin off show of the Mob Wives of Chicago seems to be a done deal according to Chicago's "Sun-Times." The word is that the new show is set to start filming next month! The only thing yet to be revealed is who are the cast members willing to expose their mob lives? The series is expected to start airing in the spring. Jennifer is quoted as saying, “I’ve got some family contacts here, people that have known my family and friends of mine.” I guess it would be safe to say that the new cast will some of Jennifer’s family associations. Jennifer still vows that no mob secrets are going to be revealed unless they have already been in the media.
Back in the day, Al Capone’s mob wife, Mae, wasn’t so anxious to be in front of the cameras, even for a picture. Today we have mob wives coming out of the woodwork to tell their stories, and that of their mobster husbands and fathers, on television, in interviews, and in books. Boy have times changed!
I wish Jennifer the very best of luck with the Chicago deal. Everyone keep your fingers and toes crossed that filming goes off without a hitch. Maybe, when our Staten Island Mob Wives wrap it up, we will have a new set of mob wives on the scene! I just can’t wait!
