We are not sure if this is a ploy to get ratings for Mob Wives or if VH1 is telling the truth, nonetheless, Vh1 put out a statement today saying, Season 6 will be the final season… Check It Out!
The presser starts off by saying;
The Mob Wives press release goes on to promise drama.. of course they do..
NEW YORK, NY – December 7, 2015– When lines are crossed… When true colors come out… Who will unite – and who will fight? Fans of VH1’s hit series “Mob Wives” know that loyalty is everything, and over the course of five seasons, viewers have witnessed moments of genuine struggle, friendship, and betrayal among a tight-knit group of Staten Island women united by a connection never before seen on television. But one thing remained clear throughout: it’s family connections that count the most. Now those bonds are put to the ultimate test in the sixth and final season of “Mob Wives,” coined “Mob Wives: The Last Stand” premiering Wednesday, January 13th, 2016 at 8:00 PM ET/PT on VH1.
For the final, emotionally-charged cycle, “Mob Wives: the Last Stand” returns the focus exclusively to where it all began – New York City. The Philly girls have left the building, and the ‘OG’ cast is back together on Staten Island, where they always keep it ‘one-hundred’ with each other. But amongst this sisterhood – could there be enemies within? Since the series premiere in 2011, the women have created new lives for themselves as their loved ones do time for alleged mob-related activities. For each of these women, the struggle is real, and sometimes betrayal is a way of life. “Mob Wives: The Last Stand” covers a particularly full range of stories: writing a personal tell-all, battling cancer and shuttering a beloved business, dealing with a rebellious teenage daughter, coping with a father’s imprisonment, calling out supposed friends for being fake, or being the new girl and having to prove that you’re authentic. Despite the high-octane drama these ladies are known for, they are more than just their ‘reputed’ mob connections. They are mothers and wives, businesswomen and entrepreneurs, and for the last time, they’re putting it all on the line to survive. Complicating the situation even more, two local newcomers are about to make their presence known in no uncertain terms.
The press release goes on to say..
This season on “Mob Wives” –
Renee Graziano is trying to stay centered, focused, and above the drama. But in this world, steering clear of conflict is no easy task, and Renee soon dives right back in, giving in to old anger and animosities while also creating new ones.
Karen Gravano is trying to kick-start her role as “momager” for her daughter Karina’s modeling career while also trying to keep her relationship with her man Storm alive. Never letting her loyalty to her family die, Karen continues the crusade to get her father released early from prison.
Drita D’Avanzo decides to write a tell-all memoir, causing tension on the home front with her ex-con husband Lee, while also dividing the group of women, some of whom are starting to wonder – is Drita a rat?
Big Ang is struggling to tone down her non-stop lifestyle. Not only is she facing a major health crisis, but financial hardships are also taking their toll. On top of all this, the stress is causing major problems in her marriage to husband Neil.
Carla Facciolo is back – and she’s not going to be bullied or intimidated by anyone this season. Carla has restored her friendship with Karen and Renee, but she’s not blind to Drita’s tricks this time around. Fiesty and fiery, she is calling everyone to the carpet in search of the truth.
Brittany Fogarty is the daughter of known gangster John Fogarty, and just moved back to the East Coast to be closer to her family. But with the history that’s tied to the Fogarty name, not everyone on Staten Island is ready to receive her with open arms.
Marissa Fiore is fairly new to the ‘lifestyle.’ She was brought into the mix and schooled by her tough guy boyfriend Jamie “OZ” Lansburg, who was recently released from prison. With her fierce beauty and strong sense of loyalty, Marissa’s presence is bold.
“‘Mob Wives’ burst onto the pop culture scene as a provocative series that pioneered truly uncharted territory on television,” said Nina L. Diaz, Senior Vice President, East Coast Production & Development, VH1. “We’re proud to have partnered with Jennifer Graziano, The Weinstein Company, Electus and Left/Right Productions on this groundbreaking franchise and thank everyone involved who helped deliver six riveting seasons to VH1 viewers. Our deepest appreciation goes to all of our beloved cast members and especially our ‘OG’s’ Renee Graziano, Drita D’Avanzo, Karen Gravano, ‘Big Ang’ Raiola and Carla Facciolo who bravely opened up every aspect of their lives each season to give us unprecedented access into their secret worlds and trusted us to tell their unbelievably compelling personal stories. We cannot wait to share the most epic season yet with their fans.”
The creator, Jennifer Graziano stated;
Per Vh1, Developed from a concept by executive producer Jennifer Graziano of JustJenn Productions, “Mob Wives” is also produced by Marvin Peart, The Weinstein Company (Bob Weinstein, Harvey Weinstein, David Glasser), Electus (Ben Silverman) and Left/Right (Banks Tarver, Ken Druckerman, and Adam Gonzalez), with Electus International distributing the series internationally. Susan Levison, Nina L. Diaz and Daniel Blau Rogge serve as executive producers for VH1.
If this is really the last season.. too bad they didn’t wait since Sammy The Bull, father to Karen Gravano (who is not a mob wife) is due to be released from prison in June of 2016.. Something tells me this is not the last we will be hearing from the Mob Wives.. Will Big Ang still particpate in every VH1 spin off? Like Couples Therapy and the fake show she did in Miami? Is Vh1 trying to get viewership up? Check out the ratings from Season 5, they weren’t great, but they weren’t horrible either..

|Vivica Fox sits down with the wives at the season five reunion. Natalie G gets rolled on by few of the ladies. London backs his girlfriend but Storm, Karen’s boyfriend, steps in with his views on the word “Rat”.
Note: Vivica Fox was criticized due to allegedly being biased toward Natalie G, holding her in contempt as a host while favoring Karen and Renee. Her lack of professionalism was widely condemned by television critics and viewers, who saw her as trying to take part in the drama of the show rather than analyze and comment on it with the cast.
