The reality show, which airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on VH1, chronicles the lives of six Staten Island women whose family members are incarcerated for mob-related crimes. Currently in its third season, "Mob Wives" draws more than 1.6 million views per episode.

Rizzo is no stranger to the mob lifestyle as she is the granddaughter of the infamous Benjamin Ruggiero, a.k.a. Lefty Guns, who was played by Al Pacino in the movie "Donnie Brasco." Growing up in Staten Island, N.Y., she shared a Mafia upbringing with cast members Renee Graziano and Karen Gravano, daughter of  “Sammy the Bull” Gravano.

Rizzo is also an advocate for In Arms Reach, a charity that mentors kids who have parents who are incarcerated. She is also a gay rights activist. She was on the cover of Odyssey Magazine and served as a host of the Odyssey Awards in 2012.

The cover charge at Vision Bar is $10 from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
