"Mob Wives" star Renee Graziano has said that God is helping her overcome her recent family ordeal that involves her ex-husband, Hector "Junior" Pagan, and her father, Anthony "TG" Graziano.
"Sometimes GOD kicks u off ur horse HUMBLES u and then give u strength 2 stand tall again but w wisdom knowledge and power 2 succeed!!" Graziano wrote via her Twitter page.
"I know GOD has big plans 4 me. I made it thru that surgery ordeal. Then this horrible sad family issue … Strong," she wrote.
Graziano, best known for her tough girl persona, was hospitalized in January after learning that Pagan, who she is reportedly still in love with, turned himself in to the feds for armed robbery before playing informant to help them arrest her father, according to TMZ.
"Please don't let them take my father!" Graziano was heard screaming on the phone during Monday night's episode of "Mob Wives."
Although the scene was filmed two months ago, VH1 only aired the episode this week, and viewers got a firsthand glimpse into Graziano's emotional breakdown.
"They're taking my dad! The feds are taking my dad!" a hysterical Graziano screams after learning that he father was arrested in a federal bust.
The reality star reportedly had trouble breathing before collapsing and was eventually taken to the emergency room for treatment shortly after it was revealed that her elderly father had been arrested on suspicion of racketeering.
Mr. Graziano, 71, is said to be a highly respected mafia boss in the Bonanno crime family and was arrested and charged with extortion and racketeering, following allegations that he tried to collect on a mob debt while in a halfway house.
Pagan, who fathered Graziano's son, has been labeled a "rat" by fans of the reality show for assisting the feds form a raid, which saw Mr. Graziano and dozens of other mob members arrested and remanded into custody.
