Renee Talks Plastic Surgery At The Mob Wives Reunion

After seeing Renee Graziano in the buff (blurred out, but still in the buff) at the plastic surgeon’s office this season, it’s safe to say she’s not shy about the work she gets done. In this sneak peek from the Mob Wives reunion, Renee lists off all the work she’s had, from nose to toes. “I’m not, as I call them, the skinny bitches, I don’t go to the gym,” she explains, throwing a joke in Carla and Drita’s direction. “I can look like them in probably 48 hours after the swelling goes down.”

Tune in to the Mob Wives reunion Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT for more on all of Renee’s original and factory-restored parts.

Nine Things To Look Forward To On The Mob Wives Reunion This Sunday

After the explosive Mob Wives finale, we figured that the air during the reunion taping would be tense. We figured right, because when Renee, Carla, Drita, and Karen sat on those couches just inches away from each other, it was the first time they had all been in the same place since the fight that ended the season on a high (and violent) note.

While we’re not going to tell you just what went down between Drita, Karen, and the rest, we can tell you that it was definitely an emotional night, and Wendy Williams pulled her weight as both host and therapist as the women sounded off. So what are a few things you can expect on the reunion, which airs Sunday, July 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT?

9. Tears. A lot of them. But you’ll have to tune in to see who actually made Wendy cry.

8. Extended, never before seen fight footage, y’all!

7. Find out whose husbands (and exes) watch the show, and how they feel about it.

6. Karen talks about whether or not Lee is in her book and when we can expect to read it.

5. Big. Relationship. Bombshells. Dropped.

4. We learn the real reasons why the big dinner party fight between Carla and Renee began.

3. Someone will bust out their dance moves on the couch.

2. Find out what each cast member’s biggest regret is this season.

1. Wendy Williams, who did a great job asking the tough questions, digs up the dirt on the women’s relationships, the big mob bust, and most importantly, just how these women afford their lifestyles.

Karen And Drita Rehash Their Rooftop Rumble In This Mob Wives Reunion Clip

Mob Wives stars Karen and Drita haven’t been in the same room together since their rooftop brawl, and there’s still some tension lingering between them (“some” might be an understatement).

In this clip from the reunion, watch as the ladies get everything out on the table once again. When host Wendy Williams asks Renee who she thinks would have won the fight if Renee hadn’t stopped it, Renee explains “Drita is extremely physically strong, Karen has incredible heart. Nobody would have won, that would have been a very ugly fight.”

Check out the clip to see how each woman reacted to the fight, and tune in to the Mob Wives reunion Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

The Mob Wives tend to fight often — what do you expect when you put four strong-willed women with occasionally tense histories together? We’ve already shown you what our favorite Mob Wives fight faces this season are, so now we bring you the lighter, less fighty side of the series, the funniest, sweetest, and generally more peaceful moments from season one.

Let us know which moments we missed in the comments, and don’t forget to tune in to the Mob Wives reunion special this Sunday, July 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Drita‘s Photo Shoot

When your hubby’s in prison, the last thing you want is for him to be thinking about other women (he does that enough when he’s OUT of prison, thankyouverymuch), which is why Drita sent these sexy photos to Lee. She mocked the idea when he initially asked her for photos, but damn girl, you could sell a 16-month calendar, easy.

Watch An Exclusive Sneak Of The Mob Wives Reunion: “You Ain’t Nothing But A Filler, Bitch!”

We know, two weeks between the Mob Wives finale and the reunion show seems like a lifetime, but that’s why we’re bringing you an exclusive sneak peek of the reunion this morning.

In one of the show’s more heated moments, Carla and Renee rehash the whole “Carla’s boyfriend was inappropriate” situation where not even host Wendy Williams can contain Renee’s emotions, and Renee leaves the set in tears. (Before she walks off, Renee does give us our new favorite insult though when she says Carla’s new name is “Restylane…’Cause you ain’t nothing but a filler, bitch.”)

The Mob Wives reunion airs Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

There’s never a dull moment in Val and Keisha‘s lives on Single Ladies, but they definitely have different ideas of fun. In this behind-the-scenes text between them, we learn that while Val chose to spend her July 4th watching the Peachtree Roadrace, an Atlanta tradition, there was no way she could convince Keisha to join her.

Anthony L. Williams, Stacey Dash’s Stylist On Single Ladies, Answers All Your Twitter Questions

Anthony L. Williams is a designer and stylist known for his competitive spirit as a contestant on Project Runway and now, for his gorgeous styling skills working with Stacey Dash on Single Ladies.

Last week, we put out the call on Twitter for fans of the show to ask Anthony anything (using the hashtag #AskAnthony) during tonight’s show, and here are his responses.

@NeilGoldberg #askanthony What are the biggest differences between styling for a sitcom and designing on a reality show?

Anthony L. Williams: When designing for a sitcom it is the responsibility of the stylist to dress the character to the specifications of the script and the expectations of the producer and the director.

@TBozz38
where do you get all those fashion ideas..you’re HOT

Anthony: I shop everywhere..Vintage, consignment, call in favors from fellow designers, Top Shop, Neiman Marcus, Zara Runway…I even shop out of Stacey’s closet. There have been random moments on set where I walked by a rack and stole a dress because I thought it would be fab on Stacey!

@arjaunjubri @sewANTHONY who designed Val’s navy blazer?

Anthony: @arjaunjubri I found that blazer at BCBG. We restructured it. It’s the fit that makes the fashion.

@dowtinc: #AskAnthony – Where do you get your accessories-Stacey’s silver and feather earrings-HAUTE

Anthony: @dowtinc The “shoppers” bought those but if I had to guess I would have to say The Atlanta Apparel Mart.

@MulattoMlkshake #AskAnthony what is it like to work with Stacey?

Anthony: Stacey is amazing to work with…Only because she celebrates excellence which is one of the core characteristics of my brand. This was my first time styling anyone in this capacity and she was my teacher…At work we respected each other’s roles and after the makeup, the clothes, and the jewelry came off, we were in our sweats, tossing back cocktails and we cackled like girlfriends!!

If you have any questions that Anthony didn’t answer here, be sure to hit him up on his Facebook page or on Twitter at @SewAnthony.
