As season 3 came to a close, Drita had finally decided to let her husband Lee back into her life -- and also their two daughters' lives. Renee and her son AJ were mending their relationship following Renee's stint in rehab. And Ang, ever the 'godmother' to the group, was trying to do her best to remain neutral and not take sides. But when the new girls hit the scene and shake things up -- how will the dynamic between the women be affected?
When Renee was young her best friend was arrested and sentenced to many years behind bars. This was her first real introduction to prison, but unfortunately not her last. Thanks to a circle of friends living the street life, Renee has visited over 83 prisons and written hundreds of letters to comfort the many friends she had on "the inside." This correspondence gave her the idea to turn her love of the "the life" into a greeting card company called JAIL MAIL.
Renee sometimes longs for the good old days, but thanks to her friends she is slowly starting to realize that this is not a life she wants her son to lead. She struggles to balance her allegiance to the street life with her hopes that her son will live a life free of it all.
Renee is hysterical, Renee is crazy, and Renee is drama, but she will be the first to give you the shirt off her back. Everyone and anyone who knows her, knows this. Follow @ReneeGraziano
Drita grew up different from the other women. She was raised in the projects of Staten Island after her family settled there from
She dated street guy after street guy until ultimately finding and marrying Lee. At first everything was great and she had everything she wanted. However, Lee was allegedly robbing banks (among other things), and before she gave birth to their first daughter, he was escorted away by the Feds for an 8 year prison term. Drita had their baby, and stood by her man -- who promised her that he would never leave her again.
During Lee's first prison sentence, Drita realized that she must do something to stand on her own two feet in case she is ever left in a position like this again. She studied to become a make-up artist and worked for various high end cosmetic companies while her husband was away. Almost eight years later Lee came home and they started over. They built a new home, made baby number two, and Lee even got a legitimate job. However the good times were short lived. Again, Lee was arrested and sentenced to prison for 2 -- 5 years for similar crimes. Needless to say, Drita was not happy. But, like so many times before, she picked up the pieces and carried on. As a mother of two with a husband in jail, she struggles to keep it all together while figuring out if this is a lifestyle she wants to continue to live. Currently, she freelances as a make-up artist and plans to develop her own cosmetic line.
Drita is tough as nails and infamous for her many fights and knock outs growing up. Now a mother, she struggles to control her anger and often feels nostalgic for times when a problem could be solved with a fist. Follow @DritaDavanzo
Married at a young age, Alicia has an older son (Anthony, 18) from her first marriage. After leaving her wealthy first husband and his money behind, Alicia set out to make a life for her and her young son. While waitressing and working as an executive assistant, she embarked on a fairy tale relationship with the man of her dreams--or so she thought. It wasn't until after Alicia married Edward that she got her first glimpse at the inner workings of the mob. While her husband tried to shelter her from his lifestyle, little by little she met some of his friends and became very close to them. Eventually she and her husband started a trucking company. Alicia ran the business end of the company and ultimately ended up being arrested alongside her husband and other Colombo gangsters, "earning" herself her own charges of fraud and embezzlement (to which she plead guilty). She is currently awaiting sentencing and is facing 0-6 months in prison or house arrest.
With her husband away in prison and facing a much longer sentence, Alicia has had to learn once again to stand on her own two feet. She and Edward have two young children together, so she is now the care giver and provider for 3 young men -- Anthony, 18, Rocco 11, and Carlo 8. She is the mother, the father, the provider, the taxi, you name it. Alicia tells her boys the truth about her and their father's situation and has decided to deal with it head on, together as a family. Alicia's husband is a long-time friend of both Renee and Ang, but now that he's behind bars she is reaching out to them to get some guidance on how to deal with her new situation--something they both have far too much experience dealing with.
Dubbed "Wise Gal" and "Columbette" by the media because of her arrest, Alicia considers herself a warrior -- she has been through a lot. She does what she wants and she's a force to be reckoned with. She is a fun, fearless, fabulous fashionista who loves and adores her three sons and her husband, although in her mind, he has a lot to make up for when he returns from jail--and she plans to make him pay!
