Pure trash.

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Italians have been targeted as the new money maker in television, from Jersey Shore to Cake Boss. Italians have been exploited and profited in the way of reality shows. So, it isn't surprising that a show chronically the lives of women who are affiliated with the Italian mob was showcased.

One of the main issues I have with the show is the concept..Now, I'm not an expert on mobs but I do know you're not suppose to publicly associated yourself with the mob. Doing so will result you "swimming with the fishes". With that said, I'm very surprised that this show was even picked up.

The show itself, is about four or five women who have family members that are involved with the mob. These women have a very tough and off putting exterior. It can be assumed that these women have some type of mental disorder and that they need to seek professional help. But instead of that, they go on national television and air their dirty laundry for all to see. The show does not have a plot, it pretty much resolves around when their husbands are being released from prison and the old family drama.

I would only watch this if you're bored, not if you're looking for quality television.

Modern Day Garbage

You can almost see the TV execs...

How about we take the power of what the mobs used to be...

and add women empowerment and view points...

and get a show no one wants to watch lol.

Daughters and wives of "mob" guys who got busted, trying to act like they are tough, already one woman identifies herself as a "bitch". Already one woman claims "she'll come after you and beat you up, like in a hospital". She backs it up with lifting a couple weights lol.

Aren't women getting their asses kissed enough? Does anyone really believe in the "tomb raider" stereotype of a woman who can beat up a bunch of men? One woman says she doesn't care what other people think. Then snivels and cries on the phone about going back to Staten Island.

Fat, old, tired, women (you can see the neglect and plastic surgery on their bodies) talking about wanting to cheat on their husbands, and claim how tough they are. Talking about shooting people, loyalty, and doing time, like they were one of the gangsters, blah blah blah.

Also terrible is the fact that these mobs guys had so much money not taken by the federal government that their spoiled daughters can go out and buy lynx coats, and go out to fancy restaurants every day. Those guys who probably shot some innocent blue collar family man and stole everything he had. This show is trying to glorify it or at least exploit it- and these fat women would get their asses handed to them, if they didn't name drop their fathers every 5 seconds.

exactly like Sex in the City, below average looking women pretending they are still hot and "fabulous".

The chubby cry baby, Sammy the bull's daughter, says "hollah!!" to toast a drink (hollar). Give me a **** break.

Why would anyone watch this show?

1/10

When each one of these individuals has directly benefited financially from crime & possibly murder. Even worse, not a single one of these individuals seem at all apologetic about that fact. Yet here you guys are eating up this low brow, intellectually vapid display of materialism & it's glorification of the so called 'Mob Lifestyle'. The fact that the Mafia is now this mainstream marketable commodity (ie: Mob Candy) is a complete disgrace & an affront to civilized society & the victims of organized crime.

I understand that there's always been a fascination with organized crime in pop culture; it's portrayal in movies & fictional TV dramas, however unlike many of those classic films & shows; which attempt dissuade individuals from embracing that life style, this piece of garbage offers absolutely nothing in terms of a moral purpose or lesson to be learned.

Seriously, if you support this show take a good hard look at yourself in the mirror & ask yourself; why am I giving these people free advertising dollars?

For shame, all of you.

Pathetic

1/10

I have accidentally seen stupid shows but this must be the stupidest of them all! First of all, this show is an embarrassment to my Italian heritage. My old school Italian parents were not getto, they were hard working people that gave us the world to become good people in this nasty society. On the contrary, shows like this make us look we all came from "MAFIA". Wake up America this happened in the AL Capone days and it just wasn't only Italians, it was Irish, Greeks, Germans every European that came to this land. It was a way of survival. This show doesn't even have a point. All I saw was a bunch of pathetic, ugly, old, raggedy wanna be mob wives that have no class. They don't know how to talk, how to communicate, how to act. All they do is scream, yell, swear, bark and pull each others hair. You call this entertainment? I call this boring. YAWN YAWN YAWN. SORRY but this show is not my cup of tea!

Great Show ~ One of the Best on TV

9/10

I give this show a 9 out of 10 rating. Great entertainment, and the chicks are just like girls I grew up with!!! ;) You can't make this stuff up, either. You got one gal potentially going down for 'cooking' the books of her husband's business...as she awaits sentencing, she decides now is the time to go PAR-TAY in Las Vegas, and live it up in a Penthouse with her g/fs. OMG. How silly...really? That wasn't a good move, at all! She ends up in the newspapers...looking all chill in sunny Las Vegas with a drink in her hand by the pool and with a smile that says: "Life is good." Hmmmmmmm if I were the presiding judge who was assigned to her case and I was soon to proclaim her sentence, it surely would have angered me. Maybe she'll get 5 years probation in lieu of jail-- but her attitude seems to suck. If the judge is watching, she could very well be going to jail! THIS SHOW IS A MUST WATCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mob Wives (good & bad)

9/10
Author: Blake Gemz from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A show about Italian wives, daughters, nieces, and granddaughters of men associated with the Mafia.

This is a "Reality Show" about 6 women and their struggles with life. Renee Graziano (daughter of Anthony "The Little Guy" Graziano. Drita Da'Vanso (wife of Lee Da'Vanso). Karen Gavano (daughter of Sammy "The Bull" Gravano *notorious under boss gone rat). Carla Facciolo (wife of Joe Facciolo). Ramona Rizzo (granddaughter of Lefty Two Guns). Angela "Big Ang" Raiola (niece of Sally Dogs).

These women are tough, rich, catty, and ready to go to war with who ever crosses them. They are the stereotypical women with Italian blood, New York accents, to much makeup, plastic surgery, and cat fights.

"Mob Wives" is not a show thats gonna teach you a lesson unless that is "Don't Rat" it is strictly entertainment that many love and many hate.

Honestly . . . This is my favorite show !
