Drita D'Avanzo was born in 1976 in the US. She was previously known to be a freelance make-up artist. She then began having an affair with Lee D’Avanzo of the infamous Bonanno Crime Family and Colombo Crime Family. The couple married soon. But when Drita was cast by VH1 in their series, Mob Wives, Lee was behind bars.
Lee came out in 2013 but has not been on the show ever. Drita is known to be a badass Mob Wife because she has always fought vigorously for her rights may it is with his husband or her friends. So, did she fought for divorce with husband Lee, after she allegedly found him cheating her with someone?
Let's find out.
There were rumors that Lee had been cheating on Drita D'Avanzo back in 2011. Drita also decided to consult a divorce attorney and while talking to HollywoodLife, she told,
Right now it looks like I’m going to 100% [get divorced]. I did speak to him and we do not speak anymore since I confronted him about it. We don’t talk.

However, Drita D'Avanzo went on to forgive Lee for his acts. It seemed that Drita was ok with it but while his imprisonment, the Mob Wives' star went on to have an affair with boyfriend Marc. She thus went on to cheat her spouse after he cheated on her. The couple has had a weird beginning. Lee has served the prison for 8 years for his crimes while his wife stays at home.
Mob Wives, the show mostly featured the fight between two mob wives, Karen Gravano, and Drita D'Avanzo. The reason behind all this fighting is because of Karen in Lee’s ex-girlfriend. The two mob wives have difficulty digesting the fact that their lives are interlinked and the cause is Lee.
These fights have been getting more serious over the years. Drita is as strong as she was before but the entire fact about Lee cheating on her and Karen being involved in their dating life has been wearing her out. She even begged the VH1 producer to not hire Karen.
She and Lee have two daughters while Karen dated Lee for almost 7 years. The couple has opted for divorce. And the rumors have flung on high that they have separated.
However, Drita D'Avanzo has said in the show that she plans to work on her marriage once Lee is free of all his felonies. She is currently 41 years old and has a net worth of around $3 million which shows her huge salary.
