Mob Wives: Renee & Drita on Dr. Phil

Renee: I really don't like violence.
Dr. Phil: Well you took to it like a duck takes to water!

Before the airing of Season Two’s premiere episode, Renee and Drita flew out to LA to tape a segment with Dr. Phil called “B-Wars.” Well, that segment aired today and I am going to blog it for you.

Introduction: the show is about women who call themselves the “B” word. “Screaming, cursing, fighting is a typical get together with your girlfriends” on VH1’s Mob Wives. The first question Dr. Phil says he wants to ask Drita and Renee is “What the hell are you all thinking?”  He jokes and says he is sensitive to “hair pulling.”  The mob wives come out later in the show.

Renee and Drita come out to meet Dr. Phil. He describes their fights as “fierce.” He shows a clip of a fight from last season, at Carla’s party, between Renee and Drita.  He asks the women what’s going on with them. What about the hair trigger reaction? They say for the most part they get along and like each other. Renee explains that the confrontation with Carla was an issue over Carla’s boyfriend being disrespectful. He wants to know what they think of the clip. Renee explains the inappropriate touching. Dr. Phil says he understands that, but this was a hair pulling, drag out fight.  An expert explains that the pressures on women today are causing them to take their stress out on each other. Dr. Phil says Mob Wives is as real as it gets. Renee and Drita say it’s real. Dr. Phil says nothing they say can justify this kind of acting out. The expert says they should use their words instead of getting physical. Renee says she tried using words, but once someone puts her hands on her then she has to defend herself. Renee says she always feels bad afterwards.

A new clip from the rooftop rumble. Dr. Phil wants to know how they know each other. Drita explains that she has been a friend of Jennifer’s for a very long time. Drita says she has been fighting from her earliest memory.  He asks if they worry about being role models for young women and children. The shows are making it seem that fighting is normal for women. Drita says most of her fights, 90% of them, were about fighting bullies in school for other kids, like the one in the wheelchair. Renee says she doesn’t like physical violence and Dr. Phil shoots back, “well you sure took to it like a duck to water.”

Dr. Phil explains, the more secure you are in yourself, the less sensitive you are to what other people say and do. If we know who we are, we don’t feel the need to defend that all the time. We don’t need people to approve of us to feel good about who we are. Renee says, she has an insecurity problem and it might translate the wrong way. She says she knows she is a very nice and giving person. Renee says she is sweet like “sugar,” but that is not the way she come across and wants to change some things about herself.

The fight scene from the balcony is shown from season two. Renee sighs. Dr. Phil says “what the hell was that?” Dr. Phil is shocked, and says he is tuning in, he has to see what going on. Renee says that was her birthday party and they ruined it.

Closing remarks. Thank you to the guests, Renee Graziano and Drita D’Avanzo

TheOtherRenee said...

I REALLY liked Renee in this interview. She knows when she is dead wrong and readily admits it.. and it seems genuine with her flaws. Unlike the other person who shall remain nameless.

Mob Mistress said...

LMAO @ The Other Renee. Renee G. does own her reality & mistakes.

TheOtherRenee said...

LOL Exactly MM.. Renee OWNS her bad shit and craziness.. and is really seeking help for all the demons going on with her.

Does anyone really believe that "I was protecting the handicapped, elderly and puppies from bullies" spin? lol

Chiara Soprano said...

LOL Other Renee...when I heard bullies and wheelchair my eyes rolled like the numbers on a slot machine in Vegas! Please. I wish I could make a clip with violin music of it. LOL

TheOtherRenee said...

Chiara Drita got a serious side eye with a twisted mouth when she said that lol I was like seriously?? I guess if I were being raked over the coals by the public for my bad behavior, I'd say whatever needed to be said to save face *smh*

Mob Mistress said...

Please stop it,my stomach hurts from laughing so hard. I am really loving The Other Renee, Deana and CaliKathy and their commentary.

The Other Renee you have think about blogging?

Patricia Cubas-Perry said...

yeah the women attacking & fighting just doesn't set good examples for the younger viewing audience. it's sad to think that due to this behavior these women now have celebrity status. in all honesty, i think these shows should be on a pay preview type of network. if this is the type of example we want to demonstrate for the next generation we better all learn how to use self-defense by learning how to aim & shoot or just stay away from hostile situations.

Deana3452 said...

What did I say? lol

MissCrop609 said...

LOL @ Drita sounding like a superhero who hits the bad guys with a wrench.

Mob Mistress said...

Chuckling @ MissCrop's comment!

Did you see I asked your question in the Jennifer Graziano interview concerning Philly?

Mob Mistress said...

Hello Deana3452,

You didn't say anything. I was sharing that I have been loving all 3 of you commenting whether we agree or not.

I'd like to take the time to address a question you have for Drita. I'm curious to know why'd you ask her about my actions?

"@DritaDavanzo I saw mobwivesblog tweet 2jenn graziano that shes not K's friend. Y does she feel the need 2 tell her that, like shes worried."

First, I'd love individuals whomever they are to get their information correct as I try very hard to do. I tweeted not tweeting anyone:

'I've NEVER met Karen Gravano or any other cast from Mob Wives! #Ihateliars'

Jennifer Graziano tweeted me asking me "Huh?"

My response:

'@jenngraziano Your girl is still telling people my site was created by Karen's friends! What is she on?!'

I wasn't worried. I was answering her question. If Karen and I were friends I wouldn't have any problem with letting everyone know. However, we are not. I'm sure you won't be reading our site again per your own tweets. I hope you are having a wonderful day. We appreciate you reading while you did! <3

OMG Mob Mistress!! Thank you for asking Jennifer about MOB wives coming to Philly. I'm still holding out hope MOB comes to my town.

I loved the question about a MOB wives-like show featuring biker chicks. I'd bet a paycheck there would be a few biker chicks who would make Renee and Drita look normal.
