It was at the center of much um– “debate” in the first season of VH-1‘s Mob Wives (and already causing quite a stir now), but Karen Gravano‘s memoir, Mob Daughter, has finally been released. What’s all the buzz about? HEAR an audio clip of the Mob Daughter herself reading an excerpt of the book after the jump.
Mafia ties? Check her bloodline, b- – -h! As the daughter of Sammy “the Bull” Gravano, the man who infamously helped the government bring down John Gotti and the rest of New York City’s Gambino crime family, Mob Wives‘ Karen Gravano knows a thing or two about the crooked lifestyle that eventually put her father behind bars. But in her new book, Mob Daughter, the VH-1 reality star reveals that growing up, it took years for her to realize what it was that her dad did for a living.
Though she found a gun hidden in his bedroom at age 6, Gravano explained that at the time, she thought it was because he had fought in the war.
By the time she was 10-years-old, Karen started to understand that her family and the company they kept were different, but it would take much longer for Gravano to comprehend why her father would turn on the people they loved.

Karen Gravano’s Mob Daughter is available in stores now.
