Plot Synopsis

MOB WIVES CHICAGO follows the lives of five women allegedly connected to Chicago's version of the Mob, as they bear the cross for the sins of their Mob-associated fathers. Each woman has chosen her own way to live her life in the city that was once home to Al Capone, sometimes in spite of -- and many times because of -- who her father is. Along the way these women battle their friends, families and each other as they try to do what's best for themselves and their children. The five women include: Renee Feccoratta Russo, who, after her father died, was raised by her uncle 'Big John' Fecarotta, an alleged loan collector and hit man and were best friends until he was gunned down by fellow mobster Nick Calabrese; Nora Schweihs, the daughter of Frank 'The German' Schweihs, who was long rumored to be responsible for the death of Marilyn Monroe and whose remains were confiscated after his 2008 death before he could be properly buried; Pia Rizza, whose father was Vincent Rizza, a dirty Chicago cop working with the Mob and then placed in Witness Protection after testifying against them; Christina Scoleri, daughter of Raymond Janek, who was a a one-time thief and alleged fence for the Mob but went straight after serving 20 on-and-off years in prison; and Leah Desimone, whose father was William 'Wolf' DeSimone, who was an alleged Mob associate. VH1 aired a sneak peek of this series on Sunday, May 27, 2012 at 9pm ET, two weeks before its official series premiere on June 10, 2012.
