The creator of a reality show and one of its stars were photographed mingling with a murder suspect last week at the New York eatery Mr. Chow, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
Karen Gravano — the daughter of mafia chief Salvatore "Sammy the Bull" Gravano" and one of the stars of “Mob Wives” — denied she had a personal relationship with Manuel "Manny" Pinero after the Sept. 21 photo surfaced, according to the report.
Pinero surrendered to authorities this week for the alleged stabbing of Christopher Adames, the piece notes. Adames was stabbed outside Juliet Supperclub, which the article says is a popular hangout featured on VH1’s "Mob Wives."
Jenn Graziano, who is the creator of the reality show, said she was asked by a "Grey Goose brand ambassador" to pose with Pinero and then tweet the photo, according to the article. “I don’t want to be associated with Manny. He’s not a friend of mine. I don’t know him like that," Graziano said.
