When you’re up close and personal with Mob Wives star Drita D’Avanzo, the two things you notice are that she’s gorgeous in person and that she has biceps that could crack walnuts. (We bet those raccoons in her yard would love that.)
But Drita told us that those biceps are the product of years of training implemented by her father. She explained, “I know he was training me for playing World Cup Women’s Soccer and being a professional athlete, he didn’t know he was straight up training a soldier.” Yes, Drita told us she was scouted for the Women’s World Cup team as a teen, but she says “I chose the wrong path. It was either get married and have kids or sacrifice everything and dedicate your time to become a professional soccer player.”
Check out the video for more from Drita, including her thoughts on the “unhappy” haters who criticize the show, and her love of NKOTB singer Jordan Knight. Drita also hinted on Twitter today that she’s working on her own website, Drita.com, launch date TBD. In the meantime, catch her on Mob Wives Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
