NEW YORK, NY (November 11, 2014) – An all-new season of VH1’s hit series “Mob Wives” premieres Wednesday, December 3 at 9:00 PM*, and with these ladies, it’s all about loyalty and respect. Cast members Renee Graziano, Drita D’Avanzo, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola and Natalie Guercio know that family is everything and your word is your bond. The group is in for a surprise when Karen Gravano stages an unexpected return to Staten Island. Last season, lifelong friendships were put to the test as “New Blood” infiltrated this tight-knit circle, and these relationships remain as complicated and volatile as ever. Ever-shifting alliances are a recipe for an explosive mix of unpredictable tension, conflict, and intrigue. Don’t miss a moment – tune in to the premiere of “Mob Wives” season 5 on VH1 Wednesday, December 3 at 9:00 PM!*
Last season, Renee felt she was everyone’s target, and she’s not about to stand for it this time around. With her husband Lee finally out of prison, Drita finds that juggling a happy family life with a growing business is tougher than she had anticipated. Big Ang is typically the mediator when it comes to the others’ quarrels, but this season she finds herself front and center with her own drama – and her stress level is at an all-time high. With Alicia busy handling her legal troubles, Natalie is flying solo, and the other wives are beginning to question her character. During her hiatus from Staten Island, Karen heard rumors that some of the ladies have been talking behind her back – something she doesn’t take lightly. She returns fierce as ever, ready to show everyone that the ‘baby bull’ will not back down to anyone.
This season on “Mob Wives,” emotions run high and Staten Island is rife with gossip, lies, and misunderstandings. In this world, you never know what’s around the corner – or when an old family connection may resurface to shake everything up. Mob Wives season 5 premieres Wednesday, December 3 at 9:00 PM* on VH1. Be sure to ‘like’ “Mob Wives” on Facebook, follow @MobWives on Twitter and use #MobWives to join the conversation.
