Mob Wives: FBI Mob Bust 2012
Yesterday, it was reported on several websites, that there was a Federal mob bust which was made possible by DEA informant Hector “Junior” Pagan, who has been acting as a DEA informant as part of a deal he cut with law enforcement. While Junior was wearing a wire for authorities he recorded conversations with his ex-father in-law, Anthony “T.G.” Graziano, which led to his arrest. According to the New York Post, Mr. Graziano will be arraigned next week.
This story is hard for me to ignore after finding out how the news deeply affected his daughter, Renee Graziano, who suffered an emotional trauma and had to be taken to the hospital for treatment. Clips of a future episode of Mob Wives show Renee collapsing on her kitchen floor when she gets news about her father, but this scene was shot after her father’s return to prison at Thanksgiving 2011. Renee, and her son AJ, as well as the rest of the family, have been through some very difficult times the past few months, including her near death experience from her surgery, Junior’s betrayal and her father’s re-incarceration after having been out only a couple of short months. Even as Renee was trying to deal with this unexpected news of her father yesterday, she tweeted to fans to please support her son, AJ, who should not have to pay for the sins of others.
Renee tweeted several messages yesterday, expressing her concern for her son and father and saying they have no contact with Junior. Renee and AJ would appreciate the prayers and support of their fans through this very difficult time. This is what she had to say:
Our prayers go out to Renee, AJ, Jennifer and their family members,through this difficult and emotional time.
