Mob Wives: Jennifer Graziano Speaks on Season 2 & New Faces!

Goin' to the prom Jennifer Graziano in black & Karen Gravano in white.
Fudge my usual blah, blah, blah I'm just going to go straight to The Mob Wives Blogspot Interview.  If you weren't on the line with Jennifer Graziano and I:  do not reprint any part of this interview unless you run Stoopid Housewives.  I love that site.  The foot massage loving Jennifer was gracious enough to share some back in the day pictures of Karen Gravano, Ramona Rizzo and herself.  Can we all say it together?  "Aqua Net!"  It truly doesn't take a scientist to clue us in on what really happened to the Earth's ozone.

The interview begins.

Hello Jennifer, you ready?
Yes, I'm ready.
First we need to discuss some new developments for season 2 of Mob Wives.   Several canaries told me Ramona Rizzo is firecracker.  I want you to tell me how you’d describe her.
They stole my word.
They stole my word.  That's exactly how I describe Ramona; a firecracker.  She scares some people.  If you don't know her she can come across b!tchy.  She's strong willed & tells you like it is.  (I think, 'Oh yeah I'm going to like Ramona Rizzo.')  I've known  her since I was 12 or 13 years old.  With Ramona it's like peeling back layers of an onion.  I've known her for so many years and just now I am starting to see her softer side.
<><> <><> <><>
Mall rats Karen & Ramona
We at The Mob Wives Blogspot know she’s a longtime friend.  We all love our friends.  Tell us why you think she’s a perfect fit for Mob Wives.
Ramona has a great background in the lifestyle.  She knows it.  She's lived it.  She fits in with the cast whether it's good or bad relationships.  I wanted authentic relationships with the cast.  So I wanted the new faces to be women they knew.  The only one Ramona didn't know was Carla (Facciolo).  I wanted to turn it up for season 2 of Mob Wives.
What would someone have to watch out for when dealing with Ramona?
Do not mess with her kids, loved ones and friends.  Don't get ink on her Gucci.  As a matter of fact do not mess up any of her precious goods.
I make a mental note: Do not mess with The Riz's Gucci.  We have a Mob Wives Meter a.k.a. Drama Meter.  Renee your sister is at the top of our meter, next is Drita, then Karen and at the bottom is Carla.  Where should we put Ramona?
That's a tough one.  She can go from level Renee to Karen at anytime.  She's never at level Carla.  Ramona definitely adds more drama to Mob Wives Season 2.

I can only imagine the mayhem these two caused.
Chiara met her awhile back.  Chiara really likes her.  She mentioned Ramona's eyes tell her she's not one to mess with.  Do you agree?
Oh yeah, she'll stare right through you.  She doesn't like drama or fighting.  She'd prefer to keep it moving and ignore a person.  Sometimes you need to stand your ground.  She will definitely stand her ground.  A little known secret is she's big softy.
By the end of season 1 of Mob Wives many viewers saw the division of the women.  There was Team Drila and then Team Handy Man Groped Us.  Can you tell us which team Ramona leans toward?
Well just the fact that she refers to Karen as her cousin & family tells you which team...  Oh one more thing Ramona has a very sharp tongue. (Oh boy, I am loving Ramona before I even see her on the small screen.)

Recently I got word that there was allegedly some tension behind the scenes and we could lose one of our original beloved or not so beloved Mob Wives.  Can you elaborate or give me a hint who it was?
No, it was totally false.

Per request I blurred out the dude in the white shirt, he looked mighty familiar!
I don't know about that one.  I have love and respect for Jennifer.  I know an executive producer got to do and say what she has to, LOL.  Okay, can we talk about the other new face joining the Mob Wives’ cast?
She hasn't been revealed yet.  We're keeping it under wraps.  I can tell you; she's hysterically funny.  She's definitely a big character.  The Mob Wives' viewers are going to get a kick out of her. We now know it's Big Ang!

Alrighty let’s change gears a bit.  What’s going down in the Windy City? 
We're gearing up to start production in two weeks (date of interview November 29, 2011).  They have great, great, great backgrounds in the lifestyle. The lifestyle is embedded in them. They're different from the New York cast. 

<><> <><> <><>
Besides the region, what’s different about Mob Wives Chicago?
They're not as fast & quick as the Mob Wives of New York.  They're more laid back.  Don't get it twisted it's a group of women which equals plenty of drama.
How many Mob Wives can we expect to see?
4 maybe 5 Mob Wives

I cannot wait!  You know I am Team Karen and Team Renee.  And I like Carla when I talk to her on the phone.  She tickles the shit out of me when she tells me off.  Jennifer laughs. 
You knowing my Mob Wife taste who would you predict to be my favorite?
One of the women is really a mixture of Renee, Drita and Carla.

I know it's an abnormality.  She is a mix of those 3 women.

And you think she's going to be my favorite?
She laughs.  Yes, look out for the blond.

<><> <><> <><>
Some lovely women from Chicago.
I am perplexed, what a mixture!  We’re really excited about Mob Wives Chicago.  We want to know what makes you excited about Mob Wives Chicago?
I love the city.  I love the women! The structure and the history of the lifestyle in Chicago is extremely interesting.  I'm excited to be growing the (Mob Wives) franchise.  I know you all blog about my traveling to Chicago, Miami and L.A.  When I travel to Los Angeles ladies it for a totally different show, I'm working on.

She told us didn't she!?  One of are favorite readers Miss Crop609 feels like you and the production team treat Philadelphia like the sixth borough of New York.  She feels Philadelphia is equally rich in mob history.  Is there a chance for Mob Wives Philly?
It's on my list of possibilities for the franchise.  The city works.  You have to remember the cast has to work too.  The cast needs to pop!  So if I have the city and find a great cast it's a possibility.

If not a Mob Wives Philly, can we get a Biker Chicks featuring the wives and girlfriends of those allegedly in the biker gangs?
She really laughs. Pretty funny, sure why not!

Can Chiara and I get job?  We have skills and lots of good ideas.
She laughs again.  I'll look into that.

I need her to look into that.  Chiara and I are forces to be reckoned with.  Can we get a job?!
Before you go one last question; how was your Thanksgiving?
It was good.  I ate everything!

What did you eat?
The usual my mom's candied yams, stuffed artichoke, dressing, cranberry sauce and turkey.
<><> <><> <><>
Homemade cranberry sauce, yum yum!

Was the cranberry sauce canned or from scratch?
From scratch and a special friend brought over some oven-baked macaroni 'n' cheese, candied yams and some other food.  It was really good too!

I know which friend.
You don't know this friend.

Oh really, I am going to have to put my sources to work.  I laugh.

The interview ends. 

Jennifer Graziano as always is entertaining to interview.  She's always on her toes with me.  She's sharp.  She never says more than she wants to give me.  I always wait for her to give me a bit too much.  I have a feeling I'll be collecting social security and still waiting for the creator & executive producer of Mob Wives to slip up.  Not that it matters to the youngest child of Ronnie & Anthony Graziano, but I so like the way she carries herself.  She's a smart & tough cookie.

I ask Jennifer for an interview with Ramona Rizzo.  She gives me the okay.  Later that night I interview the newest member of the Mob Wives cast.  I think I'm going to love her in Mob Wives' action.  The Ramona Rizzo interview will be up next week.  She gave me the best pictures.  I can't wait to share them with all of you!  If you don't stop back by until 2012 Chiara, Underboss, Harley and I wish you a Happy New Year .  A special shout out to Joshy, Barbara of Unique Roses, Stephen, Annette & Rburbank2! Do NOT forget to vote in our latest Mob Wives Poll.  As always it's a quick scroll up and to the right of the page.  Are you excited about the new faces coming season 2 of Mob Wives?

This was a long time coming, but I really enjoyed it: the interview, the pictures, your wise cracks! LOL Jennifer does need to get us jobs; we have brains, writing skills, loyalty and we know how to keep our mouths shut...what more can she ask?

The Underboss said...

Good interview. I think that you got her to say stuff and confirm some of the thoughts that are running through our heads. It was is not said that speaks louder than what is. You just have to interpret it. Good job.
