Drita D’Avanzo is on the VH1 reality TV show Mob Wives. She is 39 years old. She joined the show in 2011. Drita is a freelance makeup artist married to Lee D'Avanzo, a member of Bonanno crime family and Colombo crime family. He was behind bars when Drita joined the show. Because Lee has never appeared on the show, many people like to believe that he is still in the prison. But that is not the case. He was locked up in 2011 on a bank-robbery case, and he was released in 2013. Lee and Drita are happy now, but previously they both have been unfaithful to each other.
Lee also served prison for 8 years starting from 2001 due to robberies and drug dealing cases.
Lee is one of the catalysts that cause frequent conflict between Drita and Karen in the show, driving jealousy amongst the two women.
Drita and Lee have two daughters: Aleeya (15) and Gizelle (9).She has recently gone through a breast lift procedure.
