The rumor mills have been abuzz over the last couple of weeks about which cast members of Mob Wives would be back for the hit VH1 reality show’s fifth season. While fan fav (and new grandma!) Big Ang made everyone very happy by confirming her return, we are hearing that OG Staten Island gals Drita D’Avanzo and Renee Graziano might have spin-offs in the works. But what about the Season 4 new bloods?

Wetpaint Entertainment was lucky enough to catch up exclusively with Philly gal Natalie Guercio a little while back. She revealed whether we’ll be getting her for a second round, how things stand with the other women (ahem, Renee), and the valuable life lesson she learned on the show. Read on!

Wetpaint Entertainment: How do things stand between you and the rest of the ladies after the reunion?

Natalie Guercio: Everything is good with me and the rest of the girls. I still talk to Ang, I’ve seen Drita at some parties, and I’m still in touch with Alicia. I felt the same with Renee, but according to her recent blogs, I guess not. Everything that happened in Season 4, even with me and Renee, I put behind me. I’m ready to move forward with everything. I told Renee how I felt with certain things. I was honest with her.

Looking back is there anything you wish you had known prior to going on a reality show?

I really didn’t know too much what I was getting into; it was kind of like a learn as you go. Everyone can say ‘you’re going to be traveling back and forth a lot’ and ‘it’s going to be stressful’... you hear it all. But until you go through it, you really don’t know what anybody is talking about.

What surprised you most about being on the show?

I’m the kind of person that I just roll with the punches. I didn’t really expect a lot. The one thing I did learn is not to let my guard down, like I did in the first couple of episodes. That was just me being my friendly, nice self and accepting everyone around me, thinking they would accept me for who I was. That’s the lesson I learned: Never let your guard down with complete strangers.

Are you excited that the show was picked up for a fifth season? Will you be coming back?

Yes. I’m definitely coming back.

Now that the show is on hiatus, do you have any projects in the works?

There’s a few opportunities I have lined up right now. I’m looking forward to taking a nice long vacation. Then I’ll figure everything out when I get back.

Are you excited to see Natalie back for Season 5? Who else do you want to return? Tell us in the comments below.
