PHOTO – Meet Mob Wives Season 4 Cast! Returns December 5

Mob Wives New Blood

A new season of Mob Wives is heading your way after undergoing a major cast shake up!

VH1 has announced Mob Wives season 4 aka Mob Wives New Blood will return in December.

As you can see from the new cast photo above, only three cast members from last season are returning. And they are Renee GrazianoDrita D’Avanzo and Big Ang. They will be joined by two newbies – Alicia DiMichele and Natalie Guercio.

Below are the bios of the new duo -

Alicia is the wife of Eddie “Tall Guy” Garofalo, who has been indicted for racketeering, extortion, and conspiracy to murder. Sammy “The Bull” Gravano allegedly ordered the August 1990 murder of her father-in-law, Edward Garofolo Sr. Ever the dutiful wife, Alicia worked in Eddie’s trucking business where she too became entangled in illegal activities. She, like her husband, has been indicted, and has pled guilty to embezzlement. As she awaits a potential jail sentence, Alicia stays busy raising her 3 handsome sons and running her two designer boutiques.

Natalie is the owner of her decades old family business, the Carto Funeral Home, which has a history of being the go-to-spot for mob-related burials in South Philadelphia. It has been said that mobsters from all 5 families have come in contact with Natalie throughout her life. A single mom to her son Nunzio, Natalie continues the hustle to make ends meet and keep the family business afloat.

“Philly and New York mobsters, just by nature of proximity, have mostly been known to be friendly with one another,” said series creator Jennifer Graziano states. “And in most cases, it is no different amongst the wives – although Alicia is from Philly, her husband is a Brooklyn native. Renee and Eddie go back 30 years, so it was only natural for her to come in contact with his wife. The new women were an organic addition to our existing cast as even Natalie has New York roots and ties to some ‘friendly faces.’ Natalie’s spitfire ways and Alicia’s personal story about getting arrested and ‘going down’ with the mob offers a new perspective on what it means to ‘live the lifestyle’ or to be a ‘mob wife.’”

There’s no official explanation from the network as to why Carla FaccioloKaren Gravano, and Ramona Rizzo are not returning. Though Carla hinted after last season’s reunion that she might not be returning due to all the violence.

The new season premieres Thursday, December 5 at 10/9c.
