When "Mob Wives Chicago" star Pia Rizza found out there were naked pictures of her being shopped to various media outlets ... she knew the drill -- RELEASE THE PHOTOS HERSELF!!!
Pia tells TMZ ... she took the racy pics -- which she allowed TMZ to publish -- sometime last year, while still filming "Mob Wives" and sent them to her boyfriend to get some feedback on whether she had the right stuff for Playboy.
But Pia tells us ... the pics somehow got into the wrong hands -- and someone was trying to sell them without her permission.
Calvin Klein's ex-boy toy Nick Gruber says he fears for his life ... after a star of "Mob Wives: Chicago" allegedly threatened to kill him with a screwdriver ... this according to court docs obtained by TMZ.
23-year-old Nick requested a restraining order against "Mob Wife" Nora Schweihs in Los Angeles Superior Court on January 22.
In the docs, Nick says he and Nora have been living together for two months -- they share the same entertainment manager -- but things have taken a turn for the worse.
Specifically Nick claims Nora is "psychotic" ... drinks heavily ... stole his $10,000 Rolex ... threatened to sic her mob connections on him -- and threatened to kill Nick herself with a screwdriver.
In the docs, Nick says, "I am afraid for my life. She is hostile and I am afraid if she doesn't leave she might do something terrible to me."
Nick is asking that Nora be kept at least 100 yards away from him and his home at all times.
A hearing is set for Feb. 5th. A judge has ordered Nora not to harass, attack or threaten Nick until then. We reached out to Nora ... so far no word back.
9:50 AM PT -- Nick failed to show up to court today so the judge dismissed his request for a restraining order.
"Mob Wives" star Renee Graziano made nice with her mafioso father -- Anthony Graziano of the Bonanno crime family -- and finally chose to visit him in the slammer for the first time in seven months ... TMZ has learned.
Sources close to Renee tell TMZ she and her 18-year-old son AJ hit up the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn last week to visit her consigliere father. Graziano is serving time for extortion and racketeering charges because Renee's ex-hubby ratted him out.
According to our sources, Renee felt embarrassed by her ex's betrayal and that's why she went so long without seeing her dad.
The three spent a little less than an hour at the prison catching up and we're told Papa Graziano was especially happy to see his grandson.
"Mob Wives" Star Angela "Big Ang" Raiola is a real piece of work -- the reality TV star's mug has been plastered all over NYC lately on giant mural scenes, but no one knew why ... until now.
TMZ has learned the the mob wife's been immortalized in caricature as part of a promotional campaign for BA's VH1 spin-off show called, you guessed it ... "Big Ang."
Sources close to the production of Ang's new show tell us, the network and a marketing firm hired real deal NYC street artists to design and paint the ginormous murals around the city purely to promote the summer series.
"Mob Wives" star Renee Graziano's 17-year-old son AJ Pagan -- also on the reality show -- was arrested Wednesday for his involvement in a massive street brawl ... but he insists he's innocent ... and there's video to prove it.
The rumble went down weeks ago -- AJ's rep tells TMZ, AJ and his girlfriend were driving around Staten Island and noticed two girls beating the crap out of each other on the street ... so they stopped to break it up.
The fight exploded -- involving multiple more people -- and we're told AJ jumped into action ... pulling one of the girls out of the melee. The fight eventually dissipated. No cops were called. And that was that.
Everything seemed hunky-dory until this Wednesday -- when we're told cops showed up at AJ's Staten Island home and arrested him for allegedly hitting one of the girls involved in the fight.
But AJ's rep insists AJ never hit anyone -- and video footage of the fight (above) proves it ... showing AJ pulling one of the girls away from the fight.
According to AJ's rep, the girl accusing him is just out to exploit the reality star because of his "Mob Wives" fame.
AJ's rep adds, "Beyond engaging in violent behavior, it speaks very poorly of this girl's character that she would blatantly lie in an attempt to defame AJ's name. The truth will come out and we feel justice will be served.”
