Sometimes when we ask the question “What ever happened to that person?” we’re surprised to hear the answer. That’s the case with Gerardo, the international music superstar whose hit, “Rico Suave,” owns a place in pop music history. After his singing career, Gerardo Mejia didn’t drop out of the music industry, he became a powerful A&R executive at Interscope records, got married, and is now raising children with showbiz aspirations of their own. And now the man who made abs and bandanas sexy is coming to VH1 so fans can take a peek at his own life thanks to the new series, Suave Says. Find out more about the new series below.

This week marked the reunion special of Mob Wives: New Blood where all the drama throughout the season returned to the surface and in a shocking turn of events, Drita claimed that she and Renee were never friends.

In a shocking twist this season on Mob Wives: New Blood, Drita D’Avanzo found herself in the role of peacemaker. Her boxing classes and anger management have paid off (or maybe she really has gone soft now that Lee‘s home), but she was focused completely on her family, her business, and enjoying her newfound friendships with Alicia and Natalie on the show. When we hung out with Drita at the reunion, she told us her first impressions of Alicia and Natalie, and how she believes Renee courts some of the drama in her life. (“She put herself there,” she says.) And she has one last thing to clear up for fans who dare question her loyalty… Read on for our honest and hilarious chat with Drita. Read more…
Big Ang stunned everyone this season when she revealed that she was planning to have a baby on Mob Wives.

Alicia DiMichele Garofalo has been living in a state of limbo for a while now. The perfect life she though she has been living was completely torn apart after she and her husband were arrested and she realized that she had been unknowingly playing a part in his criminal life. Through the course of this season of Mob Wives: New Blood, we’ve seen Alicia stay strong and care for her three sons while she learned that her husband cheated on her and was later sentenced to prison. Now, she still awaits her own sentencing, all the while dealing with the craziness that is being a part of this cast.
Welcome to your first reunion, Alicia! Have you watched any past reunions?
That’s probably for the best.
I’m winging it today.
