Which Famous Actress Was “Like Family” to Drita D’Avanzo Growing Up?

The ladies from Mob Wives: New Blood are pretty much larger than life, so it can be surprising when you realize that their home base of Staten Island has a population of less than 500,000 people. How can a place so small contain all of those personalities and outspoken opinions?

But out of that 500K people, a good number of big-time Hollywood stars have emerged — not to discount Big Ang, Renee Graziano, we still love our reality stars! In fact, one of those famous actresses from the Island actually grew up with our girl Drita D’Avanzo!

So during last night’s February 28 reunion special, Wetpaint Entertainment quizzed Viggle LIVE! users to see if they knew which familiar face goes way, way back with the OG Mob Wife.

Looks like we tricked you all! The voting was pretty split, but only 25 percent of users guessed correctly that Blue Bloods actress Jennifer Esposito was “like family” to Miss Drita. About 38 percent thought that it was fellow S.I. girl Alyssa Milano, and another 37 percent went with Brooklyn native Marisa Tomei.

In an exclusive interview with the Mob Wives star, Wetpaint Entertainment learned that, prior to appearing appearing in major films like 2005’s Crash and marrying (and divorcing) Bradley Cooper, actress Jennifer Esposito was close family friends with Drita on Staten Island. Who knew?!

Are you surprised by Drita’s secret celeb connection? What did you think of the Mob Wives reunion last night? Tell us in the comments below.
