Ramona Rizzo has joined the cast of Mob Wives, VH1 confirms. She is a childhood friend of Karen Gravano and she will have her small screen debut when season 2 premieres on January 1.
Ramona’s grandfather was portrayed by Al Pacino in Donnie Brasco.
Ramona and Karen were so close while they were growing up that they called each other “cousins.” Ramona was also extremely close to her father and even called Al Pacino up and told him that “You’ve got a job to do. You need to play him right.”
Rizzo is a divorced mother of four who was born in New Jersey, but raised in Staten Island.
