Staten Island showdown!
On Sunday’s finale of VH1′s “Mob Wives,” Drita D’avanzo and Karen Gravano got into a reality TV tussle that put “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” and the “Bad Girls Club” casts to shame.
After D’avanzo found out her husband, Lee, cheated on her when they were married, she couldn’t help but take a magnifying glass to each of his prior relationships, including his romance with fellow Mob Wives star Gravano.
Further complicating things during their spat about past relationships: D’avanzo alleged that Gravano slept with one of her previous boyfriends while she was dating Lee, a claim Gravano denied.
“If I was so into ex-boyfriend bulls–t, I wouldn’t have even made friends with you in the first place, because you f–cked my boyfriend when you were with Lee,” D’avanzo said.
When Gravano continued to harp on the fact that she was tired of D’avanzo making their argument “a Lee issue,” D’avanzo snapped, hurled a glass at Gravano and starting physically attacking her.
“Honestly, she got up and I blacked the f–k out,” D’avanzo said as she pummeled Gravano in front of their castmates Renee Graziano and Carla Facciola. “I don’t know what happened until the end. I was in attack mode and it’s hard for me to stop.”
As security guards pulled D’avanzo off Gravano while cameras rolled, D’avanzo offered one final insult to her foe: “I’ll kill you, motherf–cker!”
Says Graziano of the fight, which serves as a lead-in to Mob Wives’ second season this fall: “These girls were going for each others’ jugulars.”
