Mob Wives is an American reality television series airing on VH1 that made its debut April 17, 2011. It follows six Staten Island women after their husbands or fathers are arrested and imprisoned for crimes connected to the Mafia. They have been described as "rats and stoolies", since discussing private family business on TV violates the mafia code. The idea for the show came from Jennifer "Jenn" Graziano, sister of Renee Graziano.
Season 2 premiered Sunday, January 1, 2012 at 8 pm with two new cast members: Ramona Rizzo and Angela "Big Ang" Raiola.
