“LIB sat down with D’Avanzo for a few minutes and she teased about the upcoming season of Wives on VH1. She would not reveal if the same cast will return next season. ‘You are going to have to watch, she said.”
Lady Boss, wife, mother, entertainer, star or simply, Drita. Drita D’Avanzo is one of the personalities on VH1’s hit reality based show Mob Wives and LIB Magazine met with her at Maliblue Oyster Bar in Lido Beach, where she hosted an event which featured a performance by Generations, Tuesday, August 6th.
The crowd eagerly awaited the reality TV star’s arrival at this rescheduled event. D’Avanzo’s toned, tanned body was clad in a bright red, elegant dress beautifully accented with a pair of jeweled hoop earring. Confidence is not an issue for the first-generation Albanian beauty. She is a hot tempered firecracker with a heart of gold. She must have signed close to 1,000 autographs and took as many pictures as her fans wanted during over two hours she spent at Maliblue Oyster Bar.
One fan named Kim told D’Avanzo that Kim’s mother who was ill and recently passed loved D’Avanzo. She took time to console Kim and offer her words of hope. Wives is part of a genre that is typically riddled with greed oriented, egotistical and generally angry personalities, but D’Avanzo was but any of those things. She was an absolute pleasure.
LIB sat down with D’Avanzo for a few minutes and she teased about the upcoming season of Mob Wives on VH1. She would not reveal if the same cast will return next season.
“You are going to have to watch,” she said.
D’Avanzo wanted to LIB to share with her fans:
“I absolutely love Long Island. I love it here. We are going to rename this place Maliblue and Drita,” she said.
D’Avanzo expressed that working on Mob Wives has changed her life.
“It changed my life completely. In a good way. The kids love it. Gizelle loves it. Aleeya’s like ‘I’m over it.’ She’s really like her father. They don’t like the spotlight. They are reserved,” she said.
She went on to explain what her experience taping the show was like.
“The drama in the show is caused because as we are filming it, [VH1] is airing it. The next day you still have to see that person. It could get complicated,” said D’Avanzo.
She was more down to earth than I thought any reality television person could be and I enjoyed meeting her. From what I hear, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola is also very well grounded. Raiola will be appearing at Maliblue and Hudson’s on the Mile late August.
