Looks like Ramona Rizzo won’t be spending quality time with her fiance anytime soon.
Joe Sclafani, Gambino crime family fiance of VH1 Mob Wives star Ramona Rizzo, was given a 15-year prison sentence in Brooklyn federal court last week for his role in a Staten Island drug trafficking operation.
Rizzo was in the courtroom when the sentence was handed down. Once the verdict was read, Rizzo fled the courtoom and brushed off any wedding talk. Fans of the VH1 show will remember that Ramona was prepping for her wedding to Sclafani, even though she was not certain if he would be released. Now that he has been sentenced, the wedding probably won’t take place.
Sclafani, 46, apologized to Judge John Gleeson before being sentenced and admitted that he was a disappointment to his family.
“I showed no consideration to my family,” he said. “It was just selfish. My fiance entrusted her children to me. I disappointed my son…I’m 47 and I’m still letting people down.”
Judge Gleeson said he was only sparing Sclafani more time because of his age.
“If you were younger I would give you the top of this range because you deserve it.”
The judge did ask prosecutors to grant Sclafani some time out of jail to see his cancer stricken father.
Mob Wives season 3 is now on DVD!
Your favorite Staten Island girls -Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano, Drita D’avanzo, Carla Facciolo, Ramona Rizzo– turned up the drama last season and left fans eager for a new season.
Season 3 of Mob Wives picks up with the women trying to move on in several different ways. In the wake of ex-husband Junior’s betrayal, Renee battles an ongoing secret. Big Ang copes with the fall out from her son’s drug rehabilitation and final sentencing. Drita learns that her husband Lee is going to be released from jail and is forced to consider the consequences. And when Lee returns to town, Drita is pushed to choose — is she willing to let Lee back into their home and into her heart? Or will she follow through with the divorce? Will Drita’s dreams be derailed once again?
Much to Carla’s amazement, things continue to heat up between (her still husband) Joe and his much younger girlfriend. Joe drops a bomb on Carla that threatens Carla’s number one spot in their relationship. As Karen continues to build her entrepreneurial empire, she learns some startling news about Dave that jeopardizes their long-standing love connection. And with Ramona’s boyfriend Joe still stuck behind bars and awaiting sentencing, Ramona receives an offer she may never be able to refuse.
As Godmother to the group, Big Ang’s peace-making skills are put through the ringer as the women continue to divide and multiply. Drita and Ramona are unexpectedly brought to the table by their daughters and pressed to settle their scores. When Renee and Carla go to war, it leaves everyone stunned and their twenty-year friendship in tatters.
The storms continue when Hurricane Sandy devastates Staten Island. The women survive the aftermath using their strength and street smarts to rebuild their hometown.
With the addition of LOVE MAJEWSKI, a hot-tempered mob moll engaged six times (often to notorious criminals) but never married — jealousy is in the air as are brand new Staten Island scuffles. A scrappy quick witted loose cannon, known about town for stabbing, slicing and poisoning ex lovers, Love is searching for love in all the wrong places — but, she won’t take sh*t from any man or woman.
The artwork for the DVD isn’t the best, but the content makes up for it.
