Renee Graziano seems to have broken the two cardinal rules of the Mob Wives lifestyle recently: First, she accused her friends Big Ang and Drita D’Avanzo of being disloyal, and now she’s calling them phony! These ladies pride themselves in being the realest, most loyal people around, after all.
Renee explains that she didn’t go to Natalie Guercio’s party because she was “very uncomfortable.” According to her, the two still have a lot of unresolved issues from their big Vegas blow-out.
“That’s not a lie!” she exclaims. “I’m not being fake or phony about it. I don’t want to be bothered! You might be better at pretending. I’m not.”
Oh dear, Drita does not like that implication. “Renee, let me tell you something. I ain’t good at pretending, ever. Understand that. Don’t ever f—ng say that again. Don’t ever say I’m good at pretending.” Come on, Renee, you know Drita’s as real as it gets!
“Do not call me fake or phony,” Drita tells the VH1 cameras. “Renee, didn’t you like them? Didn’t you bring them the f—k around?” In other words, she’s pointing out that just a little while ago, Renee was hitting it off with her “mini me” Natalie and her buddy’s wife, Alicia DiMichele.
But Renee is sticking to her guns. She won’t be coerced into spending time with these two women she’s currently at-odds with. “I’m not going to a party, be phony, and pretend all is f—ng good,” she insists. But at least she’s willing to try to work things out: “Natalie and I need to have a talk face-to-face and finally get this bullsh—t out of the way.”
Well this should be interesting! Natalie and Renee haven’t had much success “talking things out” in the past, but maybe tonight will change all that (we doubt it).
Are you surprised that Renee called Big Ang and Drita phony? Tell us in the comments below.
