With all of the trash talking, fights and cuss outs, Vh1's "Mob Wives" has turned out to be pretty entertaining for its fans.
But not everybody loves it.
Cast mate Renee Graziano says her father, alleged mobster Anthony Graziano, is not a fan.
"I’ve actually had a great response from everyone, my family and friends, with the exception of my father, everyone has been very, very happy for my success," she said during a recent conference call. "They love the show."
Not surprising given the fact that Graziano's bio on the show's website cites the federal government as marking her currently incarcerated father "a high ranking member of La Cosa Nostra."
The reality series follows the lives of Graziano and her pals, who are connected to organized crime via family ties (co-star Karen Gravano is the daughter of Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, the infamous underboss for the late John Gotti).
Graziano has been shown having some on-screen dust ups with Gravano and their friends, Drita D'avanzo and Carla Facciolo. Those tensions have carried over to the Internet where Graziano has engaged in some bitter rhetoric with cast mates via Twitter.
She said some of their Twitter beef was a result of her watching the show, which included a major blow out fight at a dinner party she hosted.
"I did feel some sort of way after watching episodes six and seven, which had to do with me and Carla and Drita," Graziano said. "I was very angry."
Graziano, who admits she is not one to mince words, said she wishes viewers would have gotten to see the softer side of her this season.
"I wish they would have edited out some of the crying, though that’s all real," she said. "No, actually, I wish they would have added more like the bits and pieces that make me so, I’m not as rough and I’m definitely not a tough girl. "
And while her dad may have wised she would have stuck with omerta, the code that prohibits divulging information, another family member has been super supportive, Graziano said.
Renee's sister, Jennifer Graziano is creator and executive producer of the show, and Renee said the pair work well together.
"She is the brains, and then I’m the creative goofball," Renee Graziano said. "I’ve always been that way."
