BEHIND THE VELVET ROPE
Karen Gravano (on Mob Wives, The "Lifestyle" & More!) - Part I
Today we highlight one of our favorite interviews from the past - an almost two hour chat with Karen Gravano. We cover it all (see below)
.In preparation for tomorrow's season finale of Families of the Mafia, David sits down for an exclusive one on one with the Series Co-Creator, Executive Producer & Star, Karen Gravano. Wasting no time, David & Karen delve right in to her childhood and the moment she realized her life was “different" than that of others based, in part, on a murder outside one of her father's, Sammy The Bull’s, nightclubs. Other than a few other factors which tipped Karen off to the fact that this wasn’t how many families lived, Karen discusses her “normal” (for lack of a better word) childhood - dating, friends, having a “cousin" whose family the Donnie Brasco movie was based on. After discussing the definition of important words such as “Mafia”, “Loyalty" and “Rat”, Karen and David talk about “The Gotti Tapes”, the domino effect fall out that thereafter followed, and the subsequent end of the relationship between Gotti and Sammy The Bull. David and Karen analyze the Mob lifestyle and all that comes along with it - the made guys, competing families and, at the end of the day, family togetherness and love. Tune in to Part 1 of Behind The Velvet Rope’s very special sit down with Karen Gravano.
