I’m a very real person and there is no reason why I would sign up for something that said reality and not give you reality. That would be a lie. The only thing fake about me is my nose.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2013
Mob Wives' Renee Graziano did a special interview for AfterBuzz TV's Mob Wives aftershow Thursday. In her interview, Graziano talks about her past drug abuse issues, punching her fellow cast member, and more.
Renee on getting sober:
“I was going to die, and I knew it. I absolutely, positively knew it. I didn’t use to get high. I used so I didn’t have to feel. I grew up in the era when cocaine was really big, a lot of pot, a lot of alcohol...In 2006, I was sexually assaulted. That was exactly when the pills kicked in. I am also a domestic violence survivor. Between the mental abuse, what I endured, the pills became easier for me to take. It was pop a pill, solve a problem. That was my motto...My solution was hey, I can sleep until 2015 if I take enough of these. If I take enough [pills] then I could never feel. If I take enough of these, maybe tomorrow I won’t be here.”
Renee on her feud with Carla:
“Me and Carla had a fight off camera, season 2...She said something slick in my house one day, and I hit her in front of the press, we had a fist fight. I’m not even going to blame Carla. Her ex-husband, Joe brought lawyers to the table. If I raised a hand to Carla, I was getting fired...going into Season 3, she knew I couldn’t hit her. She knew there was no hand raising on my behalf. Because if I did, I would lose everything I worked for. She’s not that important to ever take food out of my son's mouth. Season 3 was going to be over. If I felt some sort of way after season 3, I would have pulled her hair, because I don’t punch.”
Renee on plastic surgery and reality TV:
“I’m a very real person and there is no reason why I would sign up for something that said reality and not give you reality. That would be a lie. The only thing fake about me is my nose.”
Renee on cast member, Love's anger issues:
“We all have that crazy fuse. But Love is just always angry. There is a difference. I see some sort of ugly person behind her. There is something else going on inside her head. She can have fun, make you laugh. But there is something unhappy behind her.”
Renee on cast member Love being crazy:
“Thank god for Love, because [of her] I look normal. Now you know the difference between crazy and passionate.”
Renee on dating:
“I don’t want to date a criminal. A man that stands up for what he believes in. You don’t have to be a criminal to be a man. I would love a man that is similar to the strong qualities of my father. But, the time that I want him to do is the time with me and growing a family, not behind bars... I don’t date the same people I have dated in the past. I want better for my son. I try to make better decisions and meet a better quality of person. My son is 19 years old. I want to show him, your mom can do this. We’ve been through so much.”
