Months after the series finale of the long-running VH1 show “Mob Wives,” Drita D’Avanzo made a public appearance last week, revealing how happy she is that the show is no longer a part of her life.
In an interview with Maximo TV, D’Avanzo said she no longer deals or sees mob wives anymore.
“I let go of ‘Mob Wives,’ I don’t deal with any mob wives, so it’s wonderful,” she said.
The TV star removed herself from the other mob wives who appeared on the show. She no longer speaks to Carla Facciolo, Renee Graziano and Karen Gravano, but said she still sees Brittany Fogarty and Alicia DiMichele occasionally.
“As soon as ‘Mob Wives’ was over, I was at peace instantly,” D’Avanzo said in the interview. “I gained like 15 pounds. It is happy weight, it is. I was very stressed on that show. I mean, I wasn’t eating, I wasn’t sleeping. I was just all day in my kitchen thinking about how I wanna rip someone’s head off their body and remove it, and now I don’t gotta do that.”
Now that the show is over, the star said she feels a lot more relieved and happy. She hopes that she will be back on TV in the near future. Although she doesn’t regret being on “Mob Wives,” she said her regret was “trusting people.”
D’Avanzo also revealed that she is working on a spinoff show and finishing up her personal and controversial book. The book, she said, started out as a story of her life. She then switched gears to write about what it’s like to be on reality TV and “the truth behind ‘Mob Wives.'”
