“Last season, lifelong friendships were put to the test as ‘New Blood‘ infiltrated this tight-knit circle, and these relationships remain as complicated and volatile as ever,” shares VH1. “Ever-shifting alliances are a recipe for an explosive mix of unpredictable tension, conflict, and intrigue. This season, emotions run high and Staten Island is rife with gossip, lies, and misunderstandings. In this world, you never know what is around the corner – or when an old family connection may resurface to shake everything up.”

Renee Graziano is the daughter of Anthony Graziano, who, according to the Federal Government, was a high ranking member of La Cosa Nostra. Renee grew up during the heyday of the mob - when things still fell off trucks and people still dropped off envelopes even when it wasn't your birthday. Immersed in the culture since birth, she embraced the lifestyle as her own and became a "mob loyalist". Renee eventually married (then divorced) Junior. Together they have one son, AJ.

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.

Drita D'Avanzo is the wife of Lee D'Avanzo, who federal prosecutors allege is the leader of a Bonanno and Colombo crime family farm team. While Drita's husband is serving time in prison for bank robbery (for the second time), she is left alone raising two young girls, Aleeya and Gizelle. Drita, who comes from a strict Albanian household, defied her parents and married someone outside the community -- an Italian.

Drita grew up differently from the other women. She was raised in the projects of Staten Island after her family settled there from Albania. Her father, a strict soccer coach, raised her to be tough and play with the boys. She was never allowed to cry, and had to do hundreds of push-ups and sit-ups a day to meet her father's high standards. Drita was invited to play for the Women's National Soccer Team and was all set to go until she met her first love, "the streets".

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 was 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.

Angela Raiola aka "Big Ang" is the niece of Salvatore "Sally Dogs" Lombardi, a deceased captain of the Genovese crime family. Angela, a single mother of 2 was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY with her two sisters and four brothers.

Big Ang always strived to be popular with "the mob". She is what many consider a "mob moll". Owning many mafia hangouts over the years, she became like "one of the guys" - even catching a case with some high ranking members of the mob. She was loved by them all. She is like a character straight from the movie Goodfellas and lives by the lifestyle code. Ang has dated many gangsters throughout her life but has always remained independent. She is not the typical woman who would depend on a man. Big Ang has managed to make her own way and provide her own means within this world, though she was always lavished with houses, cars, jewelry, furs (you name it) by many well known mob wise guys.

One would believe that they call her Big Ang for "E Cups" or her even larger lips, but is really because of her larger than life personality. She is hysterically funny without even meaning to be. Often referring to herself as the "bad girl" she will have you laughing upon meeting her and keep you laughing until you leave.

Karen Gravano is the daughter of Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, the infamous mobster who cooperated with the government to help take down John Gotti and the Gambino crime family. Karen was just 19 years old when her father turned on the mafia, a move that left Karen devastated.

While her family relocated to Arizona to start over, at first Karen stayed behind in New York -- her way of showing that she had trouble with her father's cooperation. After a couple years, she joined her family in Arizona where she became a licensed aesthetician, opened up a lucrative day spa, and had her first and only child, Karina.

After 12 years of coming to terms with who she is and understanding her father's choices, Karen returned to Staten Island. Beyond reconnecting with old friends, Karen hoped that coming back would help her stand on her own, out of shadows of her father's infamous past. In 2012, Karen published her memoir, Mob Daughter.

Growing up in the heart of South Philadelphia, Natalie Guercio has been surrounded by the mob lifestyle her entire life. Since the 1950s Natalie's family has lived in, owned, and operated the Carto Funeral Home, known on the streets as Philly's preferred funeral home for connected men and their families. Over the years Carto has buried a virtual who's who of the Philadelphia underworld including Michael "Mikey Chang" Ciancaglini, Chickie Narducci, Frankie Baldino and Anthony "Blonde Babe" Pungitore. Natalie and fellow new Mob Wife, Alicia, run in the same Philly circles and their families have been connected through the years.

A single mom to her 9-year old son, Nunzio, Natalie took over the family business in 2011 with plans of returning it to its former glory. Attracted to street guys all her life, Natalie's currently trying to date someone a little less connected. At least for now. While this sexy Sicilian siren gives off a cool first impression, under the surface she is pure fire -- prepared to burn anyone who gets in her way.



Mob Wives Season 5 premieres on Wednesday, December 3 at 9/8 on VH1!
