A NEW BRITNEY OR LADY GAGA? GRACE VALERIE IS ON A ROLL! By Michelle Winters

DISCOVER THE REAL D R I TA D ’AVA N Z O By L. Forrest

Most people know Drita D’Avanzo as one of the fiery stars of VH1’s hit reality series Mob Wives. This year viewers will see a different side to D’Avanzo, both on and off screen. Behind the scenes, D’Avanzo is a savvy businesswoman who recently launched Just Me Cosmetics - her own cosmetics line, a loving mother, and a humanitarian. With a strong desire to give back, as a freelance make-up artist, D’ Avanzo has hosted various fundraisers for victims of Hurricane Sandy to raise awareness for her Staten Island community. She also has her own charity organization, Single but Not Alone, which helps provide funding for single-parent households. Raine uncovers what you don’t know about this rising reality star. RAINE: You stated in a previous interview that we’re going to see a new Drita this year. Can you tell us more about that? D’AVANZO: People aren’t going to see a new me. They are going to see the real me. I am going to try to stay away from drama. It’s hard to do on a reality show. I made amends with my co-stars and it’s nice because now I’m not aggravated and 42

I’m not fighting all the time. I like to crack jokes and fun. My focus is the kids and I am not turning a new leaf – now you’re just seeing me. Now that everything is cool, I’m just focusing on building an empire for my daughters. RAINE: What inspired you to make this change? D’AVANZO: My daughters. I don’t allow my kids to watch much TV. If they do, it’s educational or a kids’ channel - that’s the rule in my house. When I’m watching the show - it makes me sick that they will watch it one day. I saw myself getting physical and fighting and I was sick. I don’t want my daughters doing that. Hopefully, I won’t be getting attacked or abused by these girls anymore and if I do, I will take a different direction in settling things. My girls gave me the drive to do that. It’s funny, I am very different with my kids. My kids tell me to stick up for myself. They think I am a wimp.  RAINE: What legacy do you want to leave behind? D’AVANZO: I would like people to remember me for doing
