On the sixth and final season of Mob Wives, at first all the ladies seem to be at peace with each other. Big Ang, Renee, Drita and Karen get together at a park to catch-up. When Renee invites everyone to join her on a float in the big annual Mermaid Parade, Karen asks if she can bring her friend Brittany Fogarty from Brooklyn.
Brittany’s father is John Fogarty, who was in jail with Karen’s father, “Sammy the Bull” Gravano, the first time he was in. “They had a loyal relationship while in prison together,” says Karen. “So it’s important to me to show Brittany the same respect.” But when Karen tells the other ladies at the park that Brittany’s father cooperated, Renee changes her tune about extending the invite to Brittany. “I think I want to meet her first,” says Renee. Karen tries to paint a pretty picture of Brittany – she’s young, beautiful, worked as a model in LA – but Renee can’t get past her father’s past. “I am not bringing anyone else’s children that cooperated around me,” Renee whispers. P.S. Brittany’s mother Andrea Giovino was in the short-lived series I Married a Mobster. Mob Wives airs Wednesdays at 8pm on VH1.
