"Blue Bloods" actress Jennifer Esposito made a startling revelation Monday on "The Wendy Williams Show" (weekdays on Fox) when she revealed that she was bullied by the cast of VH1's "Mob Wives" during her childhood in Staten Island.
The news almost sent Williams into a tizzy as she tried to guess which of the "Mob Wives" was to blame. Her first guess was Drita D'Avanzo, but as it turned out, she was the only one who didn't bully Esposito. "Drita is almost like a cousin, our families knew each other growing up, so I knew her since she was a kid," Esposito said, before clarifying that she was bullied by "the rest" of the ladies.
Guest-host Mario Lopez asked Esposito if it bothers her to see the same kind of abusive behavior she dealt with in her youth now being glorified on reality TV. "It's crazy to me, because it's the exact same arguments! It's weird. I feel bad though, because being Italian, they're showing us in such a horrible light, and I know it's not their fault, but it upsets me," Esposito lamented.
