For two going on three seasons we have had both the pleasure and opportunity to Watch, Know and Love Renee Graziano.
During the time in which Renee has appeared on our screens she has taken us all on the very Real and Raw Roller Coaster otherwise known as her life.
We have smiled with her through the good times and literally had our tissue's with us for the bad and the one thing about Renee Graziano no one can deny is that she is nothing but passionate and deserving of happiness!
The separated single mum has her head screwed on and knows exactly who and what matters in her life, Her Son AJ and her Family!
Being the best mum she can be to her son is above and beyond all else in Renee's life and for that, I both respect and commend her.
Renee Graziano has lived a life of Love, Loss, Heartbreak and Pain which is why her choice to be resilient rising above her tribulations has inspired millions around the world.
As some of you may be aware Renee Graziano suffers from clinical depression to which she has been extremely open and Rawley honest about ultimately giving thousands of people not only a better understanding of the illness but also a chance to speak on it and where needed seek help.
I cannot begin to tell you all how much respect I personally have for Renee Graziano and have said many times that she is my all time favourite tweeter on twitter due to the the positivity and genuine nature of her words.
(Something Renee tells her fans on a daily basis before she goes to be)
My All time fave Tweet!
As you may know the 42 year old Stylist to the stars is the daughter of Big time known Mob associate Anthony Graziano and former wife of Hector pagen Jr who are both currently serving time in prison.
In season 2 of Mob Wives as Junior attempted to renew his relationship with Renee we saw him make a deal to avoid jail time in which he wore a wire to assist the DEA to bring his father in-law Anthony Graziano down for extortion and other charges.
Junior played a key role in the arrest and sentencing of his father in law which also led to demise of his marriage and relationship with Renee.
She is Known for never missing a visit in 22 years and thanks to the Federal Bureau of Prisons has visited 43 of the 52 states and still counting.
This "Lifestyle" is the inspiration behind Renee's company Jail Mail Inc which is aimed at providing a greeting card service specifically geared towards enabling an enhanced method of correspondences between Families, Friends and their incarcerated loves ones.
Recently I made contact with Renee Graziano to request a moment of her time to ask her a few questions and despite not expecting a response from her she was not only very quick to respond but also extremely willing and happy to lend her time.
Soon after my conversation with Renee I took to social networking to gain some insight as to what readers wanted to know about Renee because I wanted this interview to be something Mob Wives fans were involved in and the response I received was incredible.
She was nothing less than I had expected her to be, Kind, Warm, Open and very receptive to my conversations.

Your father recently appeared in court and was sentenced to prison to serve time for an extortion plot, Can you tell us the time in which he is due to receive and what your currant status is with your relationship to him is and does he hold you responsible for what Junior did?

Making the choice in season 2 to keep the camera rolling during the Ultimate Betrayal took reality Television to new heights because we have never seen anything more real than that particular episode which broke hearts all around the world, Can you tell us what influenced your choice to continue rolling?
I did the show so people could see what the criminal world does to a family and I could not stop just because it happened to me, whats fair is fair
