"Mob Wives" star Drita D'Avanzo has responded to all of the criticism that she has received from some of the show's fans who believe that she isn't being loyal enough to Renee Graziano. Some believe that she should have Renee's back more when it comes to her fights with Natalie Guercio and Alicia DiMichele Garofalo. As reported by All About The Real Housewives on Monday, Feb. 3, Drita has defended herself against her critics, explaining that she she has been wronged by Renee in the past and that she doesn't owe her that much loyalty to begin with since they're just co-workers, not close friends.

Drita explained that, contrary to what many people believe, she and Renee haven't been friends for years. Before the show, Renee was simply her friend's older sister.

Drita also pointed out that Renee never backed her up in her fights.

"I’m not sure if you have watched 'Mob Wives' for the last three seasons, but Renee took sides when it came to me Karen [Gravano] and Ramona [Rizzo] and it WAS NOT MY SIDE. She actually never even tried to play middle man to make it better, but at times made it worse and instigated the fights," she wrote.

She then labeled Renee as just a co-worker who's just plain wrong.

"Renee and I are co-workers and are in a good place. I definitely side with what’s right and what I think is wrong. Lately Renee has been WRONG," she concluded.

Renee recently seemed to send a message about Drita's "disloyalty." On Friday, Jan. 31, she posted a long message on Instagram about about loyalty and friends.

"Just because someone says they are your friend to your face doesn't mean they are .. its sad but true . People prove themselves over time Some prove to be the creep you always thought they were or never knew they were (no love loss truste) And some prove to be the most loyal ride or die that you wish you could return the favor one day ... Keep your circle small and your mouth closed ... less problems less heartache," she wrote, along with a pic of a message about the true meaning of loyalty.

Looks like Renee only has Big Ang to look to for support!
