The Graziano Family
Renee with son AJ Pagan, sister Jennifer and her son and Hector "Junor" Pagan
The Graziano family of Staten Island, New York is headed by Anthony Graziano and now carried on by his proud daughters, Lana, Renee, and Jennifer. Anthony Graziano made his income on the streets of New York through his lifelong connections with organized crime. The younger two Graziano sisters, Renee and Jennifer Graziano, are rewriting the history books with their dramatic reality TV show about the lifestyle on VH1 called Mob Wives. The Graziano sisters are finding a way to profit from their mafia family experiences and connections and trading their wicked ways for legitimate businesses.
So what are these deep mafia connections? Well the story starts with the success of their father as a consigliore in the Bonanno crime family and hopefully will end with Renee’s son, AJ, learning by example that a life in prison chosen by his father and grandfather is less appealing than a career that society mutually accepts.

In season 2, Renee opened her family home to the impact of her ex-husband Junior ratting on her own father. The twisted emotions caused by Junior's choice to lessen his sentence by turning in his father in law made the realism of modern mafia life very vivid.

What is happening with Renee Graziano on Mob Wives Season 3 : Renee is spreading her drama during her treatment program. She replaced her usual target, Carla, with a blond lady that spoke up against her. The arrival of Hurricane Sandy shows her coming home to cry on her son's shoulder. I really hope she can get it together and that her treatment helps her be more rational with how she expresses her emotions.

The eldest daughter of Anthony and Veronica Graziano and believed to be the feistiest.

In hindsight, Lana reports that her marriage was a sham for Zanococchio to move closer to her father, Anthony Graziano, and propel his own career. Fans of the VH1 drama wonder why Lana is not a featured cast member because she has truly experienced all aspects of being a mafia princess in the Anthony Graziano family. She inherited the propensity for to die for Italian cooking and a dramatic flair that would overshadow her younger sister, Renee. For now, Lana Graziano is penning her own book with the intriguing mafia stories that would make anyone blush.
