Mob Wives Adds Ramona Rizzo for Season 2

Ramona Rizzo Mob WivesMob Wives has added a wrench in the Drita/Karen feud that could make things very interesting.

Less than a week ago, VH1 announced that Mob Wives, its buzzworthy reality series about four women connected to the mafia, would be returning for its second season on New Years Day. It looks like there’ll be a new addition to the show that could shake things up even more than they already have been.

Ramona Rizzo has joined Mob Wives for its 12 episode second season and is set to make her first appearance on the January 1st premiere, according to the New York Post. Rizzo, who was nearly cast in season one, is the granddaughter of Benjamin “Lefty Guns” Ruggiero, a former soldier in the Bonanno crime family. Ruggiero was later portrayed by Al Pacino in Donnie Brasco. The newest member of Mob Wives is also a childhood friend of fellow cast member Karen Gravano.

It’s hard to know what to think about the addition of Ramona, at least at this point. The chemistry worked so well for the show in season one and you wouldn’t want anything to mess up something that special, but this could be just the thing to take Mob Wives to the next level. Until I see how she interacts with the cast, I think I’m cautiously optimistic of the addition of Ramona, but we’ll see where we are later this winter.

Mob Wives premieres Sunday, January 1st at 8:00 and will be bringing back all four members of its original cast (Gravano, Drita D’avanzo, Renee Graziano, and Carla Facciolo) in addition to Rizzo. A supertrailer for the show should be released in the coming weeks.

To relive the show’s reunion, which saw all four original cast members slowly putting their lives together, check out what I had to say here.

How do you think Rizzo will affect the dynamic of the show? Will you be checking out season two when it premieres? Who do you think will get into the first physical altercation?
