NEW UPDATES AFTER THE BREAK!
So it’s been a busy day. Correction, I’m still bust from yesterday. It’s 4 a.m. here and I have so much stuff in my inbox I may never get to the end. I got a few questions about the fight that Drita D’Avanzo got into on Tuesday that led to her being arrested and charged with misdemeanor arrest. Let’s get the office version out of the way first, then I’ll tell you what really went down.
D’Avanzo, the 40-year-old star of VH1’s “Mob Wives,” was arrested Tuesday after she allegedly punched a woman in the woman’s Tottenville house, according to NYPD Detective Hubert Reyes.
Where on the body exactly is the woman’s Tottenville house? Is this Jersey slang for a cunt punch?
The scuffle happened at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday after D’Avanzo and the woman got into a verbal dispute.
When the fight escalated, D’Avanzo allegedly threw multiple punches at the woman. She then fled the scene but was later arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault. She was released from the precinct later that evening and has a March 9 court date.
Sources with knowledge of the incident said the victim was Mary Bratti, a former chef at the St. George Italian restaurant Enoteca Maria.
Reached for comment Wednesday, Bratti asked if the Advance would pay money for information on the case. When the answer was no, she had no comment.
Okay, so here is what went down. Some sites are reporting that the woman who received a beat down, Mary Bratti was a former chef. I don’t know about all that but I do know she used to work for Drita as an assistant and/or in her store. But she hasn’t worked there in quite some time.
During the week that Mob Wives premiered, the second week of January, Carla Facciolo tweeted to Drita, “stop worrying about what Love said to me u should be ashamed of all the things u said about me . Should we ask (mary) ?
Mary was thrilled with the attention and Carla and Mary exchanged a flurry of tweets for a while. The recap of that is Mary saying she could talk for days about things Drita has said about all of them. Then Love joins in to trash talk Drita’s book.
Quotes from Mary’s Twitter about Drita
“it’s amazing how much time she spends talking shit about everyone. She should use that time to take care of her kids.”
“i guess now I’m blocked too. Tell her to have her husband Lee stop parking in my spot!!!” (Jan 14)
“listen the only agenda I have is my family. She’s a crazy”
“liar who needs to get what she deserves. That’s all”
“so now everyone can hear her full of shit tall tales. She’s got millions of them
#booko‘lies” (Jan 27 Tweeting to Carla and also Karen)
Then there was some sort of altercation at Mary’s house. Some of it was videotaped.
EDITED: THE CHICK EDITED OUT THE PART WHERE DRITA WALKS OVER AND THEY GET IN A FIGHT ON HER STOOP.
ALSO, the original video I posted was shot by her CHILDREN from inside the house who freak out when the fighting starts. I can’t believe she posted it in the first place. That poor little boy.
NEW UPDATE: She sold the video to TMZ. It’s been edited to remove the boy’s screaming/crying and to insert the daughter saying “She’s winning?”
Also the chick is now claiming she was hospitalized with a concussion. Which is bullshit. She was tweeting non stop with trash talk about winning the fight and NOW she is saying she got a beat down and had a concussion. Drita’s shots were all upper cuts to the body. This chick is bat shit crazy.
That is the big altercation. It’s really hard to tell who really started it. It looks like Mary was waving her hands around a bit to close to Drita and she first tried to grab her arms and then Mary resisted and Drita went for the uppercuts. As you can see all of this went down on the front porch while her six year old son stood next to his older sister while she did the recording. Please refer to the first quote above. The Mary chick is the Queen of projection. Who stands out on the stoop to confront and argue with a grown man over a parking space with you kids alone in the house?
This is the weird part to me. Apparently, Drita doesn’t live in the house where she tapes. It’s clear this is on ongoing neighbor parking issue. Mary says Lee is “In her spot.” In a different short video that Mary made, Lee yelled at her for video taping him. She says, “this is my house. ” Lee says , “No it’s not you’re renting.” This place seems like apartments or condo’s right on the side of the road. Lee is parking there regularly. At one point he calls Drita and hypes her up to come beat Mary’s ass and she walks up from the right hand side seconds later. Sure seems like they are neighbors to me. Apparently neither crime nor VH1 pays very well in Staten Island.
The funniest part of this, and there are a lot of funny parts is that Mary is spouting all sorts of delusions on twitter. She says that she has gotten tons of offers to sell her story and she kept her mouth shut. But Staten Island Live said she asked them for money and they said they weren’t interesting in paying. She claims Lee took or broke her phone, but she filmed a very short clip of Lee and then posted it well after he had left. She says she won the fight and Drita’s hair is all in her floor, but she called the police and made the report on Drita. She claims Drita is cashing in by selling the story but the US link she includes is just a regurgitation of TMZ’s story that doesn’t even mention her name, probably because she tried to sell them the story.
http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/mob-wives-drita-davanzo-arrested-for-assault-report-w164001 …cashing in cause she’s broke. Funny I got tons of offers to sell my story and I kept my mouth shut.
One thing is for sure, that truce that was called at last week’s sit down didn’t work. I haven’t seen this weeks episode yet. I am super far behind with my recapping. Be patient, I’m dancing as fast as I can! The saddest part is that Big Ang was live tweeting as much as she could last night and people are still acting like fools. Over a parking spot.
UPDATE: Someone put up most of the original Youtube here.
