The Graziano Sisters Dish About Their Cookbook, Plus Which Graziano Sister Stabbed Renee Over A Meatball?

Mob Wives star Renee Graziano and her sisters, Jennifer and Lana are releasing their first cookbook today titled How To Use A Meat Cleaver: Secrets and Recipes from a Mob Family's Kitchen. VH1 sat down with Renee and Jennifer and dished about some of the recipes of the book, and Renee reveals which sister stabbed her with a fork over a meatball, read all about it below!


"VH1: In your family meatball recipe, you guys talk about how someone got stabbed trying to get the last meatball, what happened there?

Renee: Okay, you know who got stabbed don’t you? Let me give you a hint, IT HURT REALLY BAD. That’s who got stabbed for the meatball! Who stabbed me? That I won’t give away because I will never implicate anybody, especially not my sister. But let me just say this, she’s the brains of the operation. I’m telling you, I still have the scar, no joke, she took her fork and jabbed me. A fork is hard to get through the skin. Yeah, she got me. It hurt really bad.

Jennifer: It was my meatball. And I put it aside and hid it for me. And she knew that!! I caught her sneaking to eat after I just came back from a rough soccer game starving. So I poked her a little!! It was a fork!!

Renee: I was bleeding and chewing at the same time.

VH1: Renee, the meatball recipe in the cookbook also mentions how you ran out of bread crumbs one day and used crushed up potato chips instead in your recipe. That actually sounds really good.

Renee: I was newly married and having everyone over at my house for the first time. At least 20 people were coming over. And I ran out of bread crumbs. I couldn’t go out because I was cooking the sauce, so I was like, hmmm, I need to improvise. And instead of putting toast in the toaster to make bread crumbs — and we all know how much I hate crumbs — I was like, gimme that bag of Wise potato chips, so I smushed them and was like forget it, just put the potato chips in there, and do you know there was at least six dozen meatballs, at least, and we didn’t even get halfway through dinner and every one of them was gone. I held it in till the very end and was like “I made them with Wise potato chips!” They still ask me for these meatballs.

It sounds delicious, I actually really want to try that now.

Renee: Did you just say ‘delicious’ to me??

Sorry! But how are you going to handle people now that you have a cookbook coming out when they tell you your food is delicious?

Renee: Honestly, I was never mad at the word. Food is delicious. Not your girl’s man. Nowadays, I prefer the word delectable."
