Mob Wives is a docu-soap series that follows the lives of four women at a crossroads, having to pick up the pieces and carry on while their husbands or fathers do time for alleged Mob-related activities. They are struggling with their identities, their own families and their futures. The women are long-time friends who live in New York City's “forgotten borough”; Staten Island.
Along the way, they battle their friends, families and each other as they try to do what’s best for themselves and their children. It’s not easy to maintain the lifestyle to which they are accustomed when the family’s primary bread winner is in lock up. From The Godfather to The Sopranos, these women are sick and tired of the lies and stereotypes that exist about their lives. They’re determined to finally set the record straight and show the world once and for all that, while their lives may seem crazy at first glance, they love, laugh and get their hearts broken just like everyone else.
