Recently an alleged member of Mob Wives Chicago production team reached out to us. Whenever this happens I get all warm & fuzzy inside because it's usually the good stuff. An added bonus is they tend to be articulate & refrain from telling us what & how to blog. They're always smart enough to realize we don't give f*ck what they want.
The informant makes it clear he/she is not a final decision maker. We are one of three sites he admits to monitoring. I have a feeling Hollywood Life & Reality Tea are the other two. The sources goal is either to make us look like complete jackasses, piss off Jennifer Graziano and/or give the Mob Wives Chicago fans & viewers some logical tidbits of information to quiet the social media hysteria running amuk. We will never truly know. However, we decided to give you the juice our way.
When you see ... I've omitted information out of respect for certain individuals & the process. My site, my call and I'm good with it. If you are not, I suggest you refrain from reading any further. Everything in orange is the informant's words, not mine.
We were told there were some major obstacles in casting Mob Wives Chicago. With Mob Wives Jennifer Graziano knew all the players & the dynamics. She knew who was who on & off paper. Mob Wives Chicago was a different story. The informant shares, "With the anchor Mob Wives, we had all the information needed to cast women that were relevant and definitively connected to the "mob". The creator had extensive life knowledge of the people involved and was therefore able to confidently cast those women with an understanding that their stories, connections, and ongoing lifestyles would stand the test of not only the viewers, but perhaps more importantly, the "mob" itself, NOT THE CASE in regards to MWC."
The source also claims there was a direct linkage to "The German" through a family member of one of the Mob Wives of Staten Island. The other Windy City mob wives were in production's radar by research, inside calls & contacts. The informant shares, "The problem with that was that the show had already been pitched, accepted, and slated for a season and time slot. This created a scramble to cast the show and begin production."
The informant confirms Nora's claims that she is the one who recommended Pia for the show. Additional research confirmed Pia's legitimate connections to The Outfit. Production learned her ties ran much deeper than they believed originally. Pay-dirt!
He/she believes production's 1st misstep was the casting of Christina Scoleri. I laugh learning this & think, 'Tell me something I don't know.' He/she states Christina didn't have a job & could meet time requirements. Christina's father could only be confirmed of having a criminal record. The source continued, "... it was evident that he was a petty thief. This guy may have grown up around and had conversations with "mobsters" but he was not connected to the "mob" by any stretch of the imagination. She claimed that he was a thief and a fence for the "mob". ANYONE who knows anything about the "mob" can easily tell you that the "mob" needs no fence. If they want electronics they don't ask a small time crook to break into cars or homes as his record reflects. The "mob" will roll the whole G*d damned store or better yet, hijack the ship the goods are sailing in on! Needless to say, Christina Scoleri perpetrated a fraudulent story and is not connected with the "mob" by any means whatsoever. She was actually the last one of two to even be offered a contract as we saw this train wreck coming long before it happened. Our original intention was to only allow her on the show part time, as a supporting cast member. What changed that was Christina's desperation to remain on the show and increase her role, and with it, her paychecks. She was willing to do anything..... regardless of friendship or how it would look for her public image. Anyone who wonders what I'm talking about with this, just remember how no one could make any sense out of her antagonizing Pia and Nora in the pilot episode nonetheless physically fighting with Pia. She would do anything the production team asked her to do. She had no morals, no loyalty, and no concern for her image. While she served our intended purpose for the season, it is the unanimous view of all involved that she is of no use moving forward. She has no story, she has no connections, she had no job coming into MWC and rest assured she no longer has a job with us either. I mean seriously, the franchise is called MOB WIVES and that denotes an affiliation to the "mob", either directly or through their saturation in the lifestyle. Christina Scoleri has neither." One has to love the loyalty aspect of people. Go Mob Wives Chicago! Let's all say ouch together. Here we go all together 1-2-3:
|Renee Fecarotta with Jennifer Graziano|
Renee was cast based on her family ties through her uncle for the most part. We dismiss previous claims from a relative that her connection to her uncle is bogus. Believe me we do our research. Any claims that Renee had nothing to do with her uncle are born of personal resentment and do not reflect reality. She also has other "mob" connections, some of which were explored during filming, such as her ex. Renee has tested well and we have very strong positive feedback on her which gives us many reasons to want to continue working with her. More on that later.
Okay it's later:" Wow this individual has a sense of humor too! The source goes on to tell us Mob Wives Chicago will not be having a reunion, which everyone including Leah's hair knew. He/she goes on to explain, "... we do not need to rehash much of the failed.... relationships that have caused this show to be more of a hindrance than a path to success for the franchise. This show is NOT done, but this cast as you know it is toast. Christina is axed, bottom line. She has no story and has been an embarrassment on social media. Leah is likely to be a part of a season 2 or other avenues we will explore. Specifically, these avenues will be travelled by Renee and Pia. Aside from Season 2 of MWC, we have options with Renee in regards to Eye Candy (the people love it). We can make a show based entirely on her connections, Eye Candy, and her family life. Viewers loved Renee and we will continue to capitalize on her success." The source made it clear it's his/her opinion about the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow in regards to Ms. Fecarotta.
|News Flash: Your father plead guilty. It's public record. Thank you!|
I don't trust anyone besides Chiara & Underboss. I don't know this individual from a roach on a food truck. Hell do I think this is real? Yes. Would I bet my last $5 bucks on it? No. I will share the individual is quite astute with great organizational skills when writing. They suggested we take this information with a grain of salt. I decided to eat a donut & fart instead. Let's all hope this information is legitimate and there will be a season 2 of Mob Wives Chicago. I did try to reach Jennifer Graziano for comment twice. Neither time did I have a chance to question her about this information. However, that broad don't be giving up nothing anyways! *shrugs* She is a busy lady, oh well.
