Is Drita D'Avanzo actually leaving VH1's "Mob Wives" after four seasons? On Saturday, August 9, Drita posted a photo on Instagram of her with co-star Angela "Big Ang" Raiola. Drita's caption for the photo sent fans in a panic about her no longer being on the show.
It's easy to understand why Drita's caption freaked everyone out. She wrote that "if there is one thing [she] can walk away from 'Mob Wives' knowing... #BigAng is the realest...n a true friend." Many of Drita's fans took her post to mean that she has made the decision to leave the show and move on with her life. Several wrote that they won't be watching the show now that Drita's gone while others simply expressed disappointment that they will no longer see their favorite cast member.
Drita's fans don't have to worry though because Drita is definitely returning for another season! Drita must have received a lot of worried messages from her fans and quickly realized that she had to reassure them. Immediately after her Instagram post, Drita tweeted that she worded her Instagram post wrong. She assured her loyal fans that she'll be back on the show this year and that season five will actually be airing soon.
Drita, along with Renee Graziano, has been on the show since the very first season, while Big Ang joined in season two. It remains to be seen who, if anyone, will be introduced in the upcoming season. After the departures of Karen Gravano, Carla Facciolo, Ramona Rizzo, and Love Majewski after season three, Alicia DiMichele and Natalie Guercio joined season four as the show's "new blood" from Philadelphia.
However, in April, Alicia, who is facing sentencing for embezzlement, announced that she was leaving the show in order to concentrate on her family. Renee Graziano, who had a tough season four after fighting with Alicia DiMichele and Natalie Guercio and feeling betrayed by D'Avanzo and Angela "Big Ang" Raiola, is likely hoping that season five of "Mob Wives" is a bit kinder to her.
