Meet the Family... of 'Mob Wives'

The women of the new reality show "Mob Wives" invited "Extra" to their regular hangout -- the Lake Club on Staten Island. Renee, Karen, Carla and Drita are the fierce women starring in the VH1 show, faced with picking up the pieces after their husbands and/or fathers were sent to prison.

Drita's husband is behind bars for robbery, Carla's dad and husband are locked up, Karen's dad is the infamous Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, and Renee's father is (allegedly) a high-ranking member of La Cosa Nostra aka the Sicilian Mafia.

Renee revealed her dad does not support her appearance on the show, but added, "My father will always love me."

The ladies admitted they watch movies dealing with mob drama. "I happen to like 'The Sopranos' -- I thought they did a good job," Carla said, while Renee prefers "Goodfellas."

"Mob Wives" makes a debut you can't refuse... April 17 on VH1.
