Mob Wives: My Letter to Karen Gravano

Dear Karen,

I have been thinking about writing this letter for a long time. I was looking for the right moment (actually I was scared Mob Mistress would stab me in the neck for writing it). From day one, when I began watching the show, I was amazed at your brilliance on screen. Your matter of fact attitude and your beauty drew me in instantly. I watched your every scene. You nailed every scene with class. I was proud of you when you came back to face the BS from the gossiping gang. You are the show. Of course, I may be a little biased. I have enjoyed watching you.  Your full figured body is sexy. Actually you are the sexiest one out of the entire cast. While Drita and Carla may have tight hot bodies, they do nothing for me. I am not a fan of the fake, and they both seem fake to me. I think when I truly fell in love was in the final episode of season one. Now it was not quite a fair fight. I understand street fights are never fair, but when Renee grabbed you and held you down to protect you, I was pissed. I wanted her to let you go in order to let you handle your business. Now I don't like fighting, but there was something in your eyes and how you screamed "I'll keep coming for you, you dirty ho," that made me think Karen is my dream woman.

 As we approached the second season, I could not wait. I watch each epsiode and love each moment that you had in your confessional. I love the clothes you picked out because they accentuated your cleavage. I was like "damn girl!" I even started following you on twitter. I may have stepped over the line on twitter, but it was all in fun. I also have to add that no cops or hitmen knocked on my door for it.  So I guess I wasn't too out of line. Maybe I should start sleeping with one eye open? Probably the highlight for my harassing you on twitter was when you gave me a birthday shout out. I was overjoyed. I will never forget that moment. I thought she actually knows I exist. I stepped up my twitter game and was constantly tweeting you. You would respond with a wink. The next step for me was purchasing your book. (I was kind of holding out hope that you would have sent me an autographed copy, but instead I bought it on my iPad.) I've read Mob Daughter. I love it. I imagine your voice reading to me as I lay in bed at night. After reading your book, I understood your tough exterior even more. You have your guard up because of your background. No one should expect you to be different. You also were raised in a family with loyalty. Something that others on your show no nothing about. But this is not about them. This is about you. I want to say thank you for sharing your life with me. I promise that I will always be a fan, listen and watch.

Forever yours,

The Underboss

I make no bones about Karen Gravano of Mob Wives being my favorite. I do not know Karen except for what I see on tv and read in her book. If you are on twitter you're more than welcome to follow me @undabawse.

Mob Mistress' input, "Why is Rockwell's single Someone's Watching Me playing in my head?"

The newest member to our blog Soft Tails stated they were touched by The Underboss' devotion to Karen Gravano.  As they read the letter Lionel Richie's Hello played in their head.  Here's the video & song to listen to as you read the letter:

I love this tribute to Karen, right from the heart. Let me add a little song to go with your blog to set the mood http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVOfyv6Xp_k

How much longer do you think you'll be living in your Mom's basement?

The Underboss said...

I'm moving in with you next Helen. Your love for Drita and my love of Karen would make for some interesting conversations. Of course I kid with you. I appreciate your comments. If we differ in opinion it is all in jest. Thanks for reading and commenting. You keep me entertained.

Laughing hysterically at Helens comment!!!

Now that I have changed my lounge pants that I pissed from laughing. This is the best blog to start everyone's weekend off with. We all need to laugh and embrace Undabawse for putting a smile on our faces. I cant help but wonder if the sweet and sultry voice of Lionel Richie singing Lady was lingering in the background as he was putting his thoughts on the monitor. LOL Your wife is lucky to have you. A man with a sense of humor is hard to find.
My husband is looking at me like I need a rest at Shaddy Meadows Mental Retreat. STILL LAUGHING holy fuck that was funny.

I started following YOU on Twitter because I was following Karen on Twitter. I am Team Karen all day long too.........although not quite as devoted as you :)

I just had to strain my eyes to read your letter of devotion to Karen. I did this ass backwards tho, I read the comments first. So after straining as I mentioned, to read, my eyes are filled with tears from laughing. Not so much about the full figure part, although that's what started it, but I could almost hear YOUR voice reading the letter. I admire your enthusiasm and your tantalizing admiration for Karen, as I bet she does as well. BTW has she responded to your letter?

You're alright in my book~

If you're planning on moving in with Helen, UB, you better start practicing fitting in, feeding all those cats and yelling "You kids! Off my lawn!" Is a full-time job.

Helen Wheels said...

Mr. Underboss,

I have to admit it. Your graciousness and sense of humor surprised me in its sophistication. Also, 'tis true, I do love me some Drita.

I look forward to our future encounters.

The Underboss said...

Thanks for all the comments. I really do like Karen but I'm afraid that the hit men maybe coming soon. I just read it and forgot how creepy it all sounds. To Helen, thanks again.
