Mob Wives Star Ramona Rizzo Threatens to Whack a Man, His Family: Report
The granddaughter of a famous gangster is linked to kidnapping and robbery
Does thuggish behavior run in the family?
In a plot that plays out like an episode of the Sopranos, Mob Wives star Ramona Rizzo has been accused of shaking down a man who did not follow through with his end of a back room deal to buy up blocks of hotel rooms for the NBA All-Star Game that would later be resold at a huge profit.
“I’ll kill you and I’ll kill your family!” Rizzo, 41, allegedly told Shonte Gibson, 36, on Saturday after armed men allegedly snatched Gibson off a Manhattan street and strong-armed him into a Chevy Traverse SUV with a furious Rizzo inside.
“She started yelling and cursing Gibson, saying she wanted her money,” a source told the New York Post, which first reported the story.
Gibson filed a police report after the alleged incident, and said one of Rizzo’s associates punched him in the face, stole $1,600 from his wallet and snatched his gold Rolex watch before he was let out of the car. He told police Rizzo was livid that he did not return the $10,000 she gave him to buy the hotel rooms he never booked.
Rizzo, a divorced mother of four, is the granddaughter of Benjamin”Lefty Guns” Ruggiero, a soldier in the notorious Bonanno crime family (played by Al Pacino in Donnie Brasco) and is engaged to imprisoned Gambino drug runner Joseph Sclafani.
