You don’t mess with the “Mob Wives.” It’s just not a good idea.
The VH1 series that packs all the drama of the “Real Housewives” and mixes in the mob flavors of “The Sopranos” is heating up. But, on this Sunday’s episode, the longtime feuders put aside their differences to brace for the storm.
Even for the badass women of “Mob Wives,” Hurricane Sandy took a toll. In October, shooting for the reality series was put on hold, as their home of Staten Island was pummeled by one of the worst natural disasters in New York City history.
Ramona, the granddaughter of infamous mobster Benjamin “Lefty Guns” Ruggiero, explains in a sneak peak for the episode that some things are more important than their ongoing catfights.
“I may not love all the women, but all the bad blood that we have with each other,” she says, “I’ll put aside and everybody needs to step up to the plate and help each other.”
As the ladies vacate their homes, Renee feels helpless, stuck in a rehab facility in Florida, worrying about her son, AJ.
“I know my family is holding him down,” says Renee, “and I know he’ll be OK.”
Episode 5 of Season 3 airs Sunday, February 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on VH1.
