Mob Wives: What's Left on the Cutting Room Floor?

The cutting room floor

For every episode we see, about 40 minutes of footage, there are hours of footage that just doesn't make it into the episode. It was said that it took 13 hours to film the Reunion Show just to get the 80 minutes we saw in both parts. I can't help but imagine all the things we didn't see. There must be enough footage to create a season 5.1 and at least a part 3 Reunion. What happens to all the "extra" footage? What aren't we seeing? That's what I want to know.

Of course, it's assumed that only the best scenes make it into any production and the worst scenes are cut. That's the whole point of taking extra footage and making sure you have more than enough to put a good show together. And, there are scenes that are planned and shot, but never make it into the show so they put them out as bonus clips. Usually, these bonus clips aren't very exciting anyway. I like to call them "filler" scenes meaning when they run out of the good stuff they insert a little scene where nothing really happens, but it fills in for any shortage of time for the episode.

Some of the edited footage will be saved to add to the season's DVDs to entice fans to purchase them and see what they missed. 

Now for a little fun with photos . . . Bring BACK the OGs!

Drita: "I wanna eat your face off!"

Carla: "A mothball? Seriously?"

Renee, always the Queen of hearts!

Karen, Times Square!

Enough said.

This one area where I think Mob Wives could take a lesson from The Real Housewives franchise. After the reunion, they always have an episode of unseen footage that didnt make the season and it can sometimes be pretty interesting.

Yes, TMZ put out an article early this afternoon saying Ang has a tumor the size of a lemon in her throat and s being operated on. It has not been determined if it is cancerous. Here is the link to the story
