Anthony Graziano, father to Mob Wives star Renee and show creator Jennifer, was arrested today, according to a report in the New York Post. Graziano was one of several high-ranking members of the Bonanno crime family to be charged with racketeering and extortion in a raid that occurred this morning. The Post reports:
“The massive sweep against the Bonanno leadership stems in part from the assistance of former mob associate Hector Pagan, who is the ex-husband of “Mob Wives” star Renee Graziano.
Pagan is now a DEA informant.”
Of course we always wish the best for Renee and her family and based on her Twitter account, she seems to be holding up fairly well in light of the news. She thanks her fans for their support, “Thank 4 ur prayers. I knw GOD will c me and aj thru this awful time… My son is an innocent victim who shldnt have 2 others sins.” Check out a few more of her reactions below, including a comment regarding her ex-husband, Junior.
