A new Mob series is about to begin airing on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network). Just what we need, another Mob reality series. Weren’t “Mob Wives” and “Amish Mafia” enough?
Well, “The Diamond Collar” will be different….much different.
The series features former Gambino Mob enforcer
James Guiliani, aka “Head. After a life of substance abuse, crime and serving time, James' life took a dramatic turn when he met the love of his life, Lena Pirelli, an avid animal lover.
As a result, James left the mafia, and for the last 8 years, with Lena at his side, he has dedicated his life to rescuing and rehoming abused and abandoned animals of all kinds.
And – voila – he now has his own reality series.
Here's an excerpt from "Diamond Collar":
"Is he friendly?" Guiliani asks about the pug.
"Aw, fuggedaboutit," Fat George replies.
The men approach the pug and Guiliani is horrified by the dog's living conditions. "I see this dog who's on a grease-soaked rag. That's his bed," he says. "There's no water in the stupid bucket they have out for this dog. He's on 4 feet of leash."
Even worse, the junkyard is dangerous for the animal. "There's f***ing glass here," Guiliani says, disgusted. "Come on. Are you f***ing kidding me?"
