Mob Wives: Chicago, the spin-off to VH1’s popular reality series Mob Wives, has been shrouded in secrecy for quite a while. Though a quick Google search will give you details of the cast and the places they’ve filmed, there’s yet to be a tone established. It could very easily follow in the footsteps of its mothership, balancing rough-and-tumble antics with personal growth, or it could very easily go to the extremes of Basketball Wives, putting the amount of violence and gossip above all else.
The just-released clips may not give us much to go on a only 15 seconds, five of which were taken up by tags/music, but it’s definitely a start toward getting to see the ladies in action. The first promo that was released didn’t have any dialogue or group interactions, so it’s good to have a few quick words from Renee, Pia, Christina, Leah, and Nora. It’s a lot of reaffirming things that were announced upon the casting reveal, i.e. Pia’s father is a rat, Nora’s father was a hit man, etc., but again, at least you get a feel for their demeanor and how they’ll be on camera.
All that’s left to be released before the premiere is the supertrailer, several minutes of footage strung together (highlighting the major conflicts in the season, no doubt), which may be held for release until either part of the Mob Wives reunion airs. Part one comes this Sunday, with part two the following week.
Mob Wives: Chicago premieres Sunday, June 10th at 8:00 on VH1.
