The daughter of mafia man Anthony 'T.G.' Graziano is admitted to a Miami rehabilitation center on her own request.
Renee Graziano has entered a healing center in Miami, but not for any drug or alcohol addiction. A representative for the "Mob Wives" star told PEOPLE, "It is not for any current drug or alcohol use of any kind. Her choice to enter rehab was made entirely on her own. She has made this decision for the betterment of her son A.J. [Pagan]'s life, as well as to improve her physical, mental, and spiritual health."
To Page Six, a source reported that the Jail Mail greeting-card company founder "has had issues with pills in the past but she was clean when she went in on Monday." Reportedly, a VH1 camera crew followed the reality TV star during the rehabilitation program, since her TV show, "Mob Wives", is still in the process of taping its third season. She is going to stay for 30 days for the healing process.
Renee previously hinted about getting a treatment in a series of tweets. On October 17, she wrote down, "Positive thoughts bring Positive results." Two days later, she stated, "Don't ever give up on yourself ...... #keepurheadup". Two hours after she wrote the status, she tweeted, "Asking 4 help doesn't make u weak it makes u smart."
In February, the 42-year-old mother told The Huffington Post, "I remember the day I gave up drinking because that was the day that my father was arrested."
The black-haired reality star is the daughter of imprisoned mafia man Anthony "T.G." Graziano. He was the former consigliere of the Bonanno family and arrested after the star's ex-husband, Hector Pagan Jr., reported her father to FBI.
The star, who called herself a "loud, foul-mouthed drama queen," displeased her father with her decision to participate in "Mob Wives" reality show. As a consequence, he doesn't want to chat with her anymore.
