Product introduction:

People love to watch train wrecks, and the VH1 hit show “Mob Wives,” which miraculously has run for two seasons, is a train wreck of biblical proportions.

“Mob Wives” is such a monstrosity that it is beyond belief that a show starring several loud, cranky, surgically altered, unpleasant, and uninteresting women could be such a big commercial success; so much so, there’s two spinoffs presently on television: “Chicago Mob Wives,” and “The Big Ang Show,”staring Big Ang Raiola. (Big Ang is a character in “Mob Wives,” who is so big in so many ways she resembles a WWE wrestler in drag; with breasts the size of boulders and lips the size of limousine mud flaps.)

“Mob Wives – Fuhgeddaboudit!” consists of my “Joe Bruno on the Mob” blogs concerning “Mob Wives,” along with the responses I’ve received from my readers, both on my blog and on my Facebook page “Mobsters, Gangs,” where I also post my blog.

Some of the responses are hysterical; some are dumb; and some are downright obscene. I’ve tried to clear up the obscenities and the bad English the best I could.

After reading this book, if you still decide to watch Season 3 of “Mob Wives,” then there’s nothing I can do for you. You’re hooked and you’re probably watching “Chicago Mob Wives and “The Big Ang Show,” too.

God have mercy on your soul.

Jimmy “The Weasel” Fratianno got his nickname from his days as a petty pushcart thief in Cleveland, when he ran as “quick as a weasel” with an armful of fruit and vegetables while the cops chased him.

Rising quickly up the organized crime ladder in Cleveland, Fratianno, after doing a stint in the can for robbery and extortion, migrated west to Los Angeles where he hooked up with West Coast Mob boss, Jack Dragna. After doing a few “pieces of work” or murders for Dragna, Fratianno got his button and became a made man in the Mafia. Dragna soon appointed Fratianno as one of his captains, bypassing several irate mobsters who had served under Dragna for decades. Without even trying, Fratianno had made himself several serious enemies, and this would come back to haunt him.

Things began falling apart for Fratianno when, while he was in prison doing another bit for extortion, Jack Dragna died. After much infighting, Dominick Brooklier was anointed Dragna’s replacement, and one of his first acts was to bust Fratianno from captain back to a mere Mafia soldier.

Incredibly, after Brooklier got hit with a 20-month prison term for racketeering, conspiracy and extortion, he named Fratianno as the acting boss of his LA crime family. Fratianno, his proud chest bursting the buttons on his silk shirt because of his sudden promotion, didn’t realize he was being set up for the fall.

As soon as Brooklier hit the streets again, Fratianno discovered he was as good as dead. He ran to the Feds, and he offered to sing his finest tunes in return for the luxury of the Witness Protection Program. Over the next 10 years (he got only five years in jail after admitting he participated in six murders), Fratianno scammed the Feds for almost $1 million, in return for his testimony at several mob trials.

The Weasel had become a Rat, but the Federal Government was his patsy. Regrettably, it was our taxpayers’ dollars that compensated Fratianno handsomely, exhibiting once again the folly of our hard-earned tax dollars at work.

About Joe Bruno:

Mathew J. Mari, New York City criminal lawyer for 38 years, said, “Joe Bruno and I grew up in the same neighborhood on the Lower East Side of New York City. We met and know the most of the same people, some of whom are alleged to be organized crime figures. And I emphasize the word ‘alleged.’

“That’s why Joe Bruno’s insight and style makes it easy for the reader to understand the colorful yet brutal characters that dominated the crime scene in America for two centuries. He knows what he’s talking about because he’s lived through it.

He was the canary who could sing but couldn’t fly.

Abe “Kid Twist” Reles was one of the most vicious and unlikable mobsters in the history of the American underworld. And to add to his distastefulness, Reles had a face only a mother could love.

After winning a Brooklyn mob war against the three Shapiro brothers (Reles was involved in the murder of all three Shapiros), Reles took over the rackets in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn. Reles and his vicious crew, dubbed “The Boys from Brownsville,” eventually caught the eye of Louie “Lepke” Buchalter, and soon Reles and his crew were charter members of Murder Inc., a battalion of killers who were responsible for anywhere from 500 to 1000 murders throughout the country.

However, in January of 1940, Reles, who was sitting pretty and bathing in illegal dough, was picked up by the cops and charged with the 1933 murder of small-time hood, Red Alpert. The reason for the pinch was that two of Reles’s flunkies, who had witnessed Alpert’s murder and were afraid for their own lives, ran to the cops, and they both sang the same sad song, “It was Abe Reles who killed Red Alpert.”

Reles knew he was screwed. He knew that two men corroborating that he had whacked Alpert was all the District Attorney needed to fry his butt in the electric chair. So Reles did what no one in the underworld thought he was capable of doing: Reles became a rat.

“Abe “Kid Twist” Reles – The Fink Who Took Down Murder Inc.” tells the story of the rise and fall of Abe Reles, from a street punk, to a killer, to a stool pigeon, whose alleged attempt at flight landed him flat on his back; squashed like a fly dive-bombing into a speeding car’s windshield.

It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.
