Mob Wives Chicago: My Open Letter To @ChrisScoleriVh1




Last night I saw the above tweet from Chris Scoleri and I want to help spread her message around. Warning: If you “condone” my blog she will unfollow you. “How bout that?” Now I will address her comments and you can agree with me or not. I don’t unfollow every person who has a different opinion, I appreciate all opinions that are respectfully presented.

My Dear Ms. Scoleri (and I say "dear" with all due respect):

I understand that you do not share or appreciate my opinion on the blog. When I recap, I present the facts of what actually happened on the show, and then offer my opinion. Anyone is free to agree or disagree as they see fit.

As for you unfollowing anyone who “condones” the blog, I have a few things to say. First, you might want to  unfollow Jennifer Graziano, the Executive Producer and Creator of your show. She not only “condones” the blog, but appreciates and supports it. She even retweets us. Jennifer understands that we keep viewers interested in the show from Monday to Sunday AND between seasons, by writing about the cast. We are dedicated to all of Jennifer Graziano’s productions and she knows we have a large readership. We promote the show for our own enjoyment and it benefits her business. We are on the first page of virtually every Google search on Mob Wives. We will write about things our readers want to read. If you have a problem with Jennifer, I suggest you unfollow her. “How bout that?”

Second, we are “condoned” by several of the original Mob Wives who also retweet us. They are Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano and Ramona Rizzo. We have written about them many times and have promoted their business ventures and dozens of appearances on our blog. They have been known to retweet us often. If you have a problem with them, you should unfollow them. “How bout that?”

Third, the cast of Big Ang follows us and retweets us regularly. They appreciate the exposure we give to their show and cast members. If you have an issue with them, why not unfollow them now? “How bout that?”

The list goes on and on. You can unfollow me, I don’t have a problem with that. What you don’t get is what the blog does for the show, the cast and you personally.

What was so offensive? This is what I said about you this week:
Christina still makes no sense to me. She was up in arms in episode one because Nora called Pia a “whore,” but now she doesn’t mind the hurtful things Nora said to Pia and Renee. She is upset because they attacked Nora and hit her. Didn’t she attack Pia and pull her hair out over a lot less?  Is that the truth or not?

And this is what VH1’s blog had to say, besides alluding to you fighting whenever you drink: “’I feel like my relationship has changed dramastically with Nora,’ (George W. Bush) Christina says, when she tells Nora about this new version of the fight. At least they have each other and all their bizarro made up words.”

And here, Reality Tea, pokes fun at your “creative” made up words: “Christina is just thrilled that her relationship with Nora has changed “dramastically.”  I am going to start using that term every day.  Nora discusses her wine and repeats her line about the wine being her dad running through her veins.  Christina thanks Nora for now equating wine with dead people.  Christina took the words right out of my mouth!”

At least I didn’t poke fun at your misuse of the English language, as I am guessing you meant to say "dramatically?" So, I guess you better unfollow your own network, VH1, too. “How bout that?”

Oh, you better unfollow your girls Pia and Leah too. I think they get what this blog does, if only for getting their names out there all the time for fans, and supporting them. Even Nora, who has her wine, "The German" coming out, went back to following me maybe because she could benefit from the extra exposure. It’s good for business. “How bout that?”

When you are on reality television, you have to take the good with the bad and develop a thick skin. You are on a show called Mob Wives Chicago that promotes how “bad” you all are. Then someone critiques your behavior on the show a little bit and you go crying and unfollowing people because your ego is bruised? I only stated the truth based on what I saw, but you run from the truth. How “real” can you be if you can't handle the truth?

In any case, your unfollowing me is no skin off my nose. I have plenty to blog about, too much in fact to worry about you. Jennifer should have a basic class for all new Mob Wives, and explain this all to them before they sign on to do a show. The show creates drama to attract viewers, blogs dissect the drama to attract readers. Simple. Both benefit in the end.

The irony of it all is that I really liked your personality, your witty remarks, and even as I critiqued your scenes, I said so. I wish you nothing but the best in all your future endeavors. It was good while it lasted…9 episodes and all.

Chiara

S/O to @MobBabyy, @victorvj84, @Tweetpolice, @missbixxy, @mrssmitty122394 @NCDIVA, @janedoemessage and to everyone else who got caught up in last night's drama

She needs to talk to her people before tweeting. That was a dumbass move!

Anonymous said...

Chiara is soooo butt hurt! Haha

Jill said...

I recommend never mentioning her again. See what happens to her ratings! Instead of explaining how it works, SHOW her how it works! Lol

Chiara Soprano said...

Jill, I try to consider her fans too. We'll see what the future holds. Thanks for reading and commenting!

I better not retweet this blog anymore. What would I do if the most boring cast member on the show unfollowed me?

Sabrina @SwankySabri said...

A blog is a blog for a reason ! Hello Ms. ScolNOBODY keep hiding behind that wall(in the pic) here is a tip, get a manager fast

Anonymous said...

Lol @SwankySabri "get a manager fast"... She better do something. She has done NOTHING with the exposure. Look at Pias career now- VIP events, modeling, a website, endorsement deals, event promos, her "big surprise" coming up. Then look at Christina- a few pics from a store that sells dildos (& only as Nora's guest). If you're dumb & boring you should be grateful for someone writing about you & making you at least somewhat relevant.

Mob Mistress said...

By the way, that's a cute picture of Christina.

Chiara Soprano said...

I agree, I think it's a very nice picture of Christina.

Dawn said...

That was so very well said Chiara! All class, which is what some of these "ladies" need.

You know christina is goofy. She just met nora and is siding with her, even though she said she wasn't taking sides. And she has been friends with pia yet wont defend her when nora calls her a whore. What the hell is wrong with her? Its like she is sucking up to nora for some reason. Oh BTW, wish christina would talk normal instead of yelling in her interviews. She really gets on my f$%&ing nerves and shes really boring.

Kel said...

Lol omg I said it and she keeps on showing me that I was right. Christina is a moron. Plain and simple. Ignorance is no good sweetheart, go get yourself some common sense classes because you're really in desperate need of them. What a fool

It's not like there isnt fair warning that this blog isnt peaches and sundae's it say's bitchy right in the beginning and blogging is about OPINIONS is this THEIR first rodeo, oh yes it is hahah well, looks like they got their first dose of fansrule! Fans determine your rise and fall, your continued success or your walk of shame. These chicks dont know how to roll and the art of pr, they should be using this platform to brand themselves and grab opportunities and create books, lines, and all the other crap that wives franchises get. By talking crap about fans and threatening fans you dig a vanilla ice grave my friend and there is no way to come up from that, unless there is obsenities and below the belt posts, which there was nothing but facts and mild opinions here, do what every other successful reality personality has learned to do, turn a hater into a fan and have them buy your sh!t!!

Love this blog.. they will learn when they are not on season 2 because the fans DETERMINE YOUR PAYCHECK

Chiara I think you went a little overboard on this. She tweets something and you blog about it and ask everyone's opinions? Yet didn't Giana tell your your an idiot for the shit you wrote about her dad and to stop believing google yet you didn't blog like this about her comment. Not talking shit about Giana or anything but you do seem butt hurt about Christians comment and went a bit far on this. Stick to blogs on the show and stop lashing out at tweets cause that's taking you to a lower level
Just my opinion
Thanks

You know, she was only defending Gianna. Say what you will about the women who married these guys, but really, the kids are innocent. It is obviously a touchy subject, and after vh1 edited Gianna last week, now this, I think Christina was just upset because Gianna was upset. Christina seems like a good person to me, who always looks out for the underdog. I'm not sure that you posting this or being on twitter asking everyone if they saw the twitter war is helping matters any. For Gianna's sake, please just let it rest. I am not related, nor do I know them personally, but I am from the area, and do know others in the same position as Gianna. Jennifer did say that Mobwives means "married to the lifestyle." The show is supposed to be about what they go through being born into this lifestyle. Yelling and screaming at them for what he did serves no purpose. They did not do it. Gianna is obviously struggling with this. I suggest that you leave it alone. Think of her.

Chiara Soprano said...

I didn't mention Giana in this post. I always said positive things about her on the blog and was very supportive. As for Christina, I commented on what I saw on the show, nothing more. There were several negative tweets about me on her page. I just selected one. I have a right to defend myself. She had unfollowed and blocked me already, there was no need to continue to mention me. Why don't you have a chat with her about that?

As for Giana's dad, I wasn't the one who brought him up, Renee did. She said he was serving a life sentence for a brutal murder. She said several derogatory things about Giana's father, I did not. All I did was to research the details of the crime for our readers, who are interested in the men behind the women. I didn't commit a crime. The information came from US Appellate Court papers. He pleaded guilty to the crime to avoid the death penalty and is serving life plus 20. If anyone has hurt Giana, it's Renee and her father, not me. If the subject is sensitive, then Renee should have not brought it up on the show. Why did she? Why don't you ask her? How am I to blame? I understand your concerns, but if I was her mother I would not have allowed this story line to be part of the show. Thank you for commenting.

Chiara Soprano said...

As to the Anonymous who thinks I went overboard, that is your opinion. I defended myself. Christina had already unfollowed and blocked me and yet kept mentioning me in her tweets. I took one comment and addressed it for her and her fans. I am not hurt over her comments and in fact I did her a favor for explaining to her the "good" that comes from being blogged about. You apparently didn't get it on Twitter and you don't get it now. As for Giana, no I have not blogged about her comments attacking me. She is being advised, perhaps not too well, about the opportunities of being on a reality show but not about the pitfalls. She is young and impressionable. And, as I said before, we decide who and what we will write about, it's not up to you. If you care so much, go start a blog of your own and write what you see fit.

Chiara I love reading your blogs and can agree with them. My observation of Christina is the same. She can condone her own fight with pia but not Renee and nora's?? How hypocritical is that? I started out liking Christina n still do minus her ludicrous thinking on the whole Renee, Nora n pia fiasco. Nora may not fight with her fist but she does with her mouth and the vile things she said about Renee warranted the reaction she got from Renee. Now it needs to be dropped and christina needs to pull herself out of it. Nora's a big girl and if she can spout those vile words then she should be able to back them up. Just my opinion.

Also, you write a great blog and if people don't like it then they need to go find another blog or write one themselves!

Kel said...

If Chiara were to be "butt hurt" as some have said, it would be understandable as she BUSTS her behind PROMOTING this show and all the ladies in it. Whether she likes them or not, Chiara is always keeping us up to date with things they're doing so that their fans can go enjoy them. If Chiara was to only talk about the ones that she and the majority of us like, Drita and company would not get half of the exposure they do. So Christina is an idiot who doesnt really have the luxury to be an idiot right now. She's trying to make a clothing line and she would benefit from as much exposure as possible; I can guarantee you without a doubt that Chiara would have kept us up to date with this endeavor of hers and told us launching dates as well as where to go to purchase her products. Did Chiara lose anything? Not at all, but dumb, immature Chirsitona did. The joke's really ultimately on her. How bout that Christina? So damn stupid... Ugh

Chiara Soprano said...

Thanks Kel, you get it. Not to mention there hasn't been word on a season two yet. I hope they come back, but nothing is ever guaranteed. Imagine too how many people would come to a blog that was always all peaches and cream? I think we are all tired of BS and like to read the truth.
